View Full Version : Toughness of articular cartilage

07-14-1998, 01:23 AM
I am looking for methods of measuring the toughness of
articular cartilage, probably from the knee. I have in mind a simple
work of fracture test, using a tearing method. Has anyone tried this
before, or anything similar? Any other ideas?
