Abstract

Polarized light imaging during mechanical testing of tissue equivalents was carried out. Bioartificial media equivalents were fabricated which had circumferential alignment. During cyclic testing, a decay in peak force with sustained retardation took place. It was found that mechanical conditioning which caused permanent deformation resulted in permanent alignment being created in the sample.
