The present investigation explores the relationship between animal and bone physical traits and the mechanical properties of whole bone from four species. Mechanical testing was performed using three-point flexure on the femora and tibiae of mice, rats, rabbits and cats. Interspecies correlations of the physical traits to the mechanical properties were used to elucidate the most likely physical predictors of mechanical properties within a single species. Physical traits measured were total bone… Expand
