UNLABELLED In a series of 103 specimens from the lateral facet of the human patella, the intrinsic mechanical properties of articular cartilage were measured using a confined compression creep test. By considering the cartilage as a porous, permeable solid filed with fluid, this experimental procedure allowed the determination of the intrinsic equilibrium modulus of the cartilage matrix and its permeability to fluid flow. The intrinsic equilibrium modulus and the permeability both were highly… CONTINUE READING
