Experimental methods and complementary theoretical methods were developed to estimate the two primary biomechanical phenomena with two parameters, for cells in tissue equivalents assuming μ and τ0 were constant in value over time. Temporal data was determined by generating mean squared displacement (MSD) data with a generalized least squares analysis. The FEM was based on the anistropic biphasic theory for tissue equivalents, and was solved with the Control and Optimization (COOPT) software package. COOPT solves a differential-algebraic equation system with piecewise polynomials that were functions of time, allowing the time dependence of 60 for the optimal fit of the compaction data to be obtained.
