The biphasic finite element (FE) modeling of tear effects on the mechanics of the meniscus was studied. FE studied of the normal meniscus were used to predict the spatially varying stress-strain rate within the meniscus. These studies also demonstrate the importance of fluid-solid interactions in governing load-support and function of the meniscus was also demonstrated.
