Biphasic poroviscoelastic simulation of the unconfined compression of articular cartilage: II--Effect of variable strain rates.


This study investigated the abilities of the linear biphasic poroviscoelastic (BPVE) model and the linear biphasic poroelastic (BPE) model to simulate the effect of variable ramp strain rates on the unconfined compression stress relaxation response of articular cartilage. Curve fitting of experimental data showed that the BPVE model was able to successfully… (More)
