Understanding how soft tissues behave in response to mechanical loading is essential in the field of biomechanics. Therefore, when a new tissue construct is fabricated, it is necessary to characterize its mechanical response using an appropriate test to quantify the material properties while minimizing error and artifact. To fully understand the behavior of the tissue construct, one should then be able to describe the behavior using a mechanical model.
