A three-dimensional deformation problem for articular cartilage layer is considered in the framework of the linear biphasic poroviscoelastic theory. The solid matrix of biphasic layer is assumed to be transversely isotropic. A short-time leading-order asymptotic solution is obtained for a relatively thin biphasic poroviscoelastic layer bonded to a rigid impermeable substrate.
