Viscoelastic boundary element model of contact in the micropipette aspiration test

An account is given on a computational model for the static elastic and transient viscoelastic mechanical cell response based on a boundary element method (BEM). The model can be used to study the mechanical properties of chondrocytes and their alterations in osteoarthritis.
