Dear colleagues,

does anybody know some more literature about viscoelastic properties of
collagen fibres?
I only found the papers listed below.
Besides I would also appreciate some advice about viscoelastic (not
poroelastic) modeling of human intervertebral discs. I want to use a
explicit fibre-matrix model for the annulus (like Shirazi-Adl), not a
fibre-reinforced-matrix model (like Wu & Yao or Klisch & Lotz).

Thanks very much

Arno
