Mathematical analysis of trabecular 'trajectories' in apparent trajectorial structures: the unfortunate historical emphasis on the human proximal femur.
TLDR
This work examined two tenets of the trajectory hypothesis; namely, that the trabecular tracts from the tension- and compression-loaded sides of a bending environment will follow 'lines' (trajectories) of tension/compression stress that resemble an arch with its apex on a neutral axis, and form orthogonal intersections.
Determining mineral content variations in bone using backscattered electron imaging.
TLDR
The present study confirms the use of BSE imaging as a tool to measure the microscopic mineral variability in a broad range of mineralized tissues.
Evidence of strain-mode-related cortical adaptation in the diaphysis of the horse radius.
TLDR
Equine radii were sectioned transversely at 65% (proximal), 50%, and 35% of length and cortical bone from the cranial, caudal, medial, and lateral regions to determine if one, of many, structural and material features could be distinguished as being consistently related to the distribution of the prevailing strain modes.
Ontogenetic and regional morphologic variations in the turkey ulna diaphysis: implications for functional adaptation of cortical bone.
TLDR
The more uniform oblique-to-transverse CFO patterns in adult bones may represent adaptations for shear strains produced by torsional loading, which is presumably more prevalent in adults.
The meaning of graylevels in backscattered electron images of bone.
TLDR
Graylevel variations in BSE images of simulated bone tissue were shown to be strongly correlated to density and mineral content, but only as a coincidence of their association with atomic number.
Relationships of loading history and structural and material characteristics of bone: Development of the mule deer calcaneus
TLDR
Examination of potential relationships between developmental morphologic variations and the functional strain distribution of the deer calcaneus found that cross‐sectional shape changes with age from quasi‐circular to quasi‐elliptical, with the long axis in the cranial–caudal direction of habitual bending.
Modeling and remodeling in a developing artiodactyl calcaneus: A model for evaluating Frost's Mechanostat hypothesis and its corollaries
TLDR
Region differences in mineral content and population densities of new remodeling events support Frost's hypothesis that intracortical remodeling activities differ between the opposing cortices and the increased remodeling activity of the tension cortex does not appear to be related to a postulated low‐strain environment.
The influence of collagen fiber orientation and other histocompositional characteristics on the mechanical properties of equine cortical bone
TLDR
Data generally support the hypothesis that differentially affecting S-M-S energy absorption may be an important consequence of regional histocompositional heterogeneity in the equine third metacarpals.
Cement lines of secondary osteons in human bone are not mineral-deficient: new data in a historical perspective.
TLDR
Qualitative BSE and EDX analyses of cement lines showed either higher Ca content or equivalent Ca content when compared to distant osteonal and interstitial bone, rejecting the hypothesis that cement lines of secondary osteons are poorly mineralized.
