Abstract

Second national mechanics congress, Rolduc, The Netherlands, November 16-18, 1992 A model for charged hydrated tissues, such as the intervertebral tissue, is developed. This model predicts not only the response of a mechniacal load but also of a chemical load. This response is characterised by ion diffusion, fluid flow relative to the solid matrix and osmotic pressure. The qualitatively good agreement between experiment (data from the literature) and the predictions of the model supports ists physical basis.
