Abstract
Composite samples consisting of articular and calcified cartilage maintained in a non-viable physiological condition have been subjected to static compression using a system of simultaneous micromechanical testing and interference light microscopy. This, combined with transmission electron microscopy following glutaraldehyde fixation of the tissue under sustained load, has provided a unique observation of the response of the collagen framework in the tidemark region of articular cartilage to sustained compression loading. The tidemark in mature articular cartilage is seen to be highly variable in its morphological features, when viewed ultrastructurally. It inco...
