Abstract

[en] Entheses, interfaces between bones and soft tissues, are complex biomaterial structure joining two dissimilar tissues having a Young’s modulus mismatch of two orders of magnitude. This master thesis focus on nano-scale mechanical properties of the interface between Achilles’tendon and calcaneus bone. Histological investigations and dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) based on nanoindentation were performed on rat models.
