Sacrifi cial bonds and hidden length (SBHL) in structural molecules provide a mechanism for energy dissipation at the nanoscale. It is hypothesized that their presence leads to greater fracture toughness than what is observed in synthetic materials without such features. Here, we investigate this hypothesis using a simplifi ed model of a mineralized collagen fi bril sliding on a polymeric interface with SBHL systems. A 1D coarse-grained nonlinear springmass system is used to model the fi bril… CONTINUE READING
