Stress analysis on the facial skeleton of gorilla by means of the wire strain gauge method

Abstract

Simulation of the biting action of the gorilla was made by using a macerated skull of the gorilla. Strains in the facial skeleton produced by this simulation were measured by the wire strain gauge. Some stress analyses were made from these strains and were compared with those of the human facial skeleton. The strains in the facial skeleton of the gorilla… (More)
