The aim of this project was to see whether the tendon would show creep during long-term dynamic loading (here referred to as dynamic creep). Pig tendons were loaded by a material-testing machine with a human Achilles tendon force profile (1.37 Hz, 3% strain, 1,600 cycles), which was obtained in an earlier in vivo experiment during running. All the pig tendons showed some dynamic creep during cyclic loading (between 0.23 +/- 0.15 and 0.42 +/- 0.21%, means +/- SD). The pig tendon data were used… CONTINUE READING
