Elastic properties of apatites
One of the prime motives for studying the elastic properties of the apatites stems from the occurrence of hydroxyapatite, OHAp, in calcified tissue. In this paper the isotropic elastic contents ofExpand

On the anisotropic elastic properties of hydroxyapatite.
Experimental measurements of the isotropic elastic moduli on polycrystalline specimens of hydroxyapatite and fluorapatite are compared with elastic constants measured directly from single crystals ofExpand

Shape and size of isolated bone mineralites measured using atomic force microscopy
The inorganic phase of bone is comprised primarily of very small mineralites. The size and shape of these mineralites play fundamental roles in maintaining ionic homeostasis and in the biomechanicalExpand

The elastic properties of hard tissues and apatites.
The pressure dependence of the elastic constants of various halides, hard tissues and synthetic apatites have been examined in the 0- to 50-kilobar range using a solid media, pressure apparatusExpand

Viscoelastic properties of wet cortical bone--I. Torsional and biaxial studies.
Abstract The dynamic moduli for frequencies between 2 × 10−3 and 100 Hz and the relaxation modulus between 1 and 105 sec have been measured in torsion for human and bovine cortical bone kept wet inExpand
