We report the results of direct mechanical tests of the fibrous periosteum from the tibiotarsi of white leghorn chicks at 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 14 weeks of age using a newly developed sample isolation technique. Additionally, this technique allows the determination of the apparent in vivo load on the fibrous periosteum. The periosteum has a highly nonlinear stress-strain relationship at all ages. For loading below the in vivo level, the periosteum is pliant and mean tensile modulus is 3… CONTINUE READING
