Abstract

The nonlinear viscoelastic structural response of the major human knee ligaments when subjected to complex loading histories is investigated, with emphasis on the collateral ligaments. Bone-ligament-bone specimens are tested in knee distraction loading, where the ligaments are in the anatomical position corresponding to a fully extended knee. Temporal nonlinearities for time scales in the range of 1
