FIG. 1.

Representative force-indentation curves obtained on porcine (a) and equine (b) ZP surfaces at six different indentation rates (0.5, 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10 μm/s). Black lines show the best fit of the Eq. (1) to the experimental data. The apparent Young modulus (Eapp) obtained by fitting Eq. (1) to the experimental data on porcine (c) and equine (d) ZP at different values of indentation rate is reported.

Image of FIG. 2.
FIG. 2.

Representative force-indentation curves obtained at 0.5 μm/s (a) and 5 μm/s (b) indentation rate on porcine ZP evidencing a different energy dissipation (cyan area). The hysteresis (H) computed by means of Eq. (2) on porcine (c) and equine (d) ZPs at different values of indentation rate is reported.
