A number of theoretical frameworks embodying the disparity between tensile and compressive properties of cartilage have been proposed, accounting for the collagen fibers implicitly [1,2] or explicitly [3–5]. These models generally propose discrete fiber families to describe the collagen matrix. They are able to capture the most salient features of the cartilage mechanical response, namely, the tension-compression nonlinearity of the stress-strain curve .
