In the present paper, an asymptotic model is constructed for the short-time deformation of an articular cartilage layer modeled as transversely isotropic, transversely homogeneous (TITH) biphasic material. It is assumed that the layer thickness is relatively small compared with the characteristic size of the normal surface load applied to the upper surface(More)
In the present paper, we review the current state-of-the-art in asymptotic modeling of articular contact. Particular attention has been given to the knee joint contact mechanics with a special emphasis on implications drawn from the asymptotic models, including average characteristics for articular cartilage layer. By listing a number of complicating(More)
Inhomogeneity and anisotropy play a crucial role in attributing articular cartilage its properties. The fric-tionless contact model constructed here consists in two thin biphasic transversely isotropic transversely homogeneous (TITH) cartilage layers firmly attached onto rigid substrates and shaped as elliptic paraboloids of different radii.
