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-independent cartilage viscoelasticity. Polymer dynamics predicts that stress-relaxation will proceed more slowly at higher volumetric concentrations… CONTINUE READING
