Comparative study of the intrinsic mechanical properties of the human acetabular and femoral head cartilage.


Biphasic creep indentation methodology and an automated indentation apparatus were used to measure the aggregate modulus, Poisson's ratio, permeability, thickness, creep and recovery equilibrium times, and percentage of recovery of normal articular cartilage in 10 human hip joints. These properties were mapped regionally to examine the mechanical factors… (More)
