An investigation of the Fluid Structure Interaction in articular cartilage across disparate scales

Biomedical Flows
Underpinning Methods for Fluid Dynamics

Cartilage is comprised of microscopic fibres immersed in synovial fluid that is expelled under load, thereby increasing the load carrying capacity and reducing friction in natural joints. This remarkable property has been historically modelled at Leeds using the continuum equations of poroelasticity. However, the selection of relevant...
