Recent modelling efforts in the field of mechanics of the intervertebral disc, demonstrate that the deformation properties of intervertebral disc tissue are intimately linked to compositional changes. This paper presents uniaxial tensile relaxation experiments of canine annulus fibrosus tissue under stepwise changes of external salt concentration.
