In this study postmortem changes in the character of the stress-strain limit cycle were analyzed for cat extensor communis and extensor lateralis tendons maintained in a stream of Ringer’s solution and loaded with a short series of symmetrical triangular-wave stress cycles. The mechanical behavior of these tendons was compared with that of similar tendons… CONTINUE READING
