The mechanical properties of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) were characterized by using uniaxial compression and dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) as well as finite element simulation methods. A five-parameter linear solid model was used to emulate the mechanical behavior of PDMS. The study results indicated that the effect of viscoelasticity affected the PDMS micropillar arrays significantly. The conventional approach for calculating the cellular force basing on the linear elastic mechanics could result in considerable errors.
