Table 1 Material properties of the articular cartilage and menisci

From: Effects of contact stress on patellarfemoral joint and quadriceps force in fixed and mobile-bearing medial unicompartmental knee arthroplasty

Cartilage Linearly elastic,
isotropic
E = 15 MPa
v = 0.475
Menisci Linearly elastic,
transversely isotropic
Eθ = 150 MPa, Er = Ez = 20 MPa
vrz = 0.2, v = v = 0.3, G = G = 57.7 MPa
