This paper describes a new method, based on a recent analytical model (Hertzian biphasic theory (HBT)), to simultaneously quantify cartilage contact modulus, tension modulus, and permeability. Standard Hertzian creep measurements were performed on 13 osteochondral samples from three mature bovine stifles. Each creep dataset was fit for material properties using HBT. A subset of the dataset (N = 4) was also fit using Oyen's method and FEBio, an open-source finite element package designed for soft tissue mechanics. The HBT method demonstrated statistically significant sensitivity to differences between cartilage from the tibial plateau and cartilage from the femoral condyle. Based on the four samples used for comparison, no statistically significant differences were detected between properties from the HBT and FEBio methods. While the finite element method is considered the gold standard for analyzing this type of contact, the expertise and time required to setup and solve can be prohibitive, especially for large datasets. The HBT method agreed quantitatively with FEBio but also offers ease of use by nonexperts, rapid solutions, and exceptional fit quality (R^{2 }= 0.999 ± 0.001, N = 13).
