To analyze the interrelationships between the structure, composition, and mechanical properties of articular cartilage, canine knee (n = 10) femoral and tibial cartilages were used as experimental tissues. The biomechanical properties, instant shear modulus (IM), and equilibrium shear modulus (EM) of articular cartilage were investigated using an in situ indentation creep technique. The local variations in the concentration of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) in the cartilage were measured with a… CONTINUE READING
