Improved Characterization of Soft Tissue Mechanical Properties Using a Combination of Stress Relaxation and Creep

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Mechanical characterization of articular cartilage, soft tissues and gels is important for biomechanical reference data and for functional assessment of biopsied or engineered tissue. Common techniques include dynamic mechanical spectroscopy [1] and stress relaxation [2], with the latter often favored for technical simplicity. While reliable… (More)
