An analysis of the effects of depth-dependent aggregate modulus on articular cartilage stress-relaxation behavior in compression.

Abstract

An accurate description of the mechanical environment around chondrocytes embedded within their dense extracellular matrix (ECM) is essential for the study of mechano-signal transduction mechanism(s) in explant experiments. New methods have been developed to determine the inhomogeneous strain distribution throughout the depth of the ECM during compression… (More)
