Collagen is a protein material with intriguing mechanical properties - it is highly elastic, shows large fracture strength and plays a crucial role in making Nature's structural materials tough. Collagen based tissues consist of collagen fibrils, each of which is composed out of a staggered array of ultra-long tropocollagen molecules extending to several hundred nanometers. Albeit the macroscopic properties of collagen based tissues have been studied extensively, less is known about the… CONTINUE READING
