Cartilage stress-relaxation proceeds slower at higher compressive strains.

Abstract

Articular cartilage is the connective tissue which covers bone surfaces and deforms during in vivo activity. Previous research has investigated flow-dependent cartilage viscoelasticity, but relatively few studies have investigated flow-independent mechanisms. This study investigated polymer dynamics as an explanation for the molecular basis of flow… (More)
