Abstract

The applicability of the microindenter for testing cartilage at the microscopic level is studied and the intrinsic biomechanical properties of rabbit articular cartilage as a function of depth is evaluated to acquire information on the variation of these properties in different layers of articular cartilage. The aggregate modulus and shear modulus of the New Zealand white rabbit's femoral cartilage change with depth as evidenced by the varying values of the different regions.
