Microcracking in dog bone under load. A biomechanical study of bone visco-elasticity.


Entire diaphyseal bones from adult dogs were repeatedly loaded in torsion. The residual deformation after unloading from the non-linear deformation range was found to decrease with time. Acoustic-emission signals typical for micro-cracking were registered not only during loading in the non-linear deformation range but also during the initial phase of the… (More)
