Articular cartilage has been shown to exhibit large transverse contractions when loaded in tension, suggesting the existence of large values for the Poisson's ratio. Previous studies have suggested that this effect is dependent on amplitude of applied strain, so that a single Poisson's ratio may not be sufficient to describe cartilage behavior. In this study, the Poisson's ratio (v), toe region modulus (Eo), and linear region modulus (E) of human patellar articular cartilage were calculated in… CONTINUE READING
