Both collagen fibers and long bone exhibit similar anisotropy in several respects, strongly supporting the concept that the anisotropy of bone has its source in the contained collagen fibers which are parallel to the bone axis in mature adult mammalian bone. Experimental information was obtained for a sample of adult bovine tibia from the midregion of the bone prepared as 22 specimens, 2 mm thick, in three orientations—axial, tangential, and radial—with respect to the measurement of sonic… CONTINUE READING
