The mechanical properties of tendon
Although the tensile mechanical properties of tendon have been well characterised, the viscoelastic and anisotropic properties remain uncertain. This thesis addresses the anisotropic and viscoelastic material properties of tendon. A method to characterise the three-dimensional shape of tendon is reported and experiments to characterise the fibre-aligned and fibre-transverse viscoelastic properties of tendon are presented.
