We revisit the axisymmetric contact problem for a biphasic cartilage layer and consider a refined formulation taking into account the both normal and tangential displacements at the contact interface. The obtained analytical solution is valid for arbitrary time and increasing loading conditions. We compare it with the classic result and indicate cases where the difference could be pronounced.
