Anisotropy of Young's modulus of bone


Bonfield and Grynpas1 have compared their experimental data for Young's modulus of elasticity versus the angle of orientation of the specimen to the long axis of bone with a theoretical curve predicted from a calculation for fibre reinforced materials proposed by Currey2. As a result of the poor agreement between the two curves they conclude “… an… (More)
