Measurements of Rayleigh velocity and attenuation were taken in single mineral crystals of hydroxyapatite and fluorapatite at angular intervals relative to their c axes, using an acoustic microscope. These results are compared with the values that were calculated using the elastic constants of apatite from Yoon and Newnham [(1969) Am. Miner. 54, 1193-1197.] and Katz and Ukraincik [(1971) J. Biomechanics 4, 221-227.]. The slowness curves of various wave modes are plotted and discussed in… CONTINUE READING
