Experimental determination of the subchondral stress-reducing role of articular cartilage under static and dynamic compression.

Abstract

This paper describes a series of experiments investigating the ability of articular cartilage to act as a subchondral stress-reducing layer under both static and impact loading conditions. The cartilage was removed from its subchondral bone and rebonded to a rigid photoelastic substratum of known stress-optic properties. This allowed the shear stresses… (More)
