Abstract

A micromechanical model was developed to describe the stress-strain behavior of tendons based on its structural constituents including collagen and proteoglycans. A tensile load was applied to the central fibrils and proteoglycans transferred the load to the surrounding fibrils. It was suggested that the role of the proteoglycan is central both concerning the tensile properties of the collagen fiber and its nonlinear behavior.
