The work shows correct procedures needed in order to gather reliable data from measurement of displacements versus axial load in a laboratory mounting of the Ilizarov external fixator. The mechanism of settling after load cycling is investigated. Detension under load is a major problem of wires. By means of vibration frequency measurements, tests on single wire allow determination of reduction in wire tension due to transverse loading: it is found that, almost independently from the amount of… CONTINUE READING
