The present study defines several conditions under which stress relaxation tests can be performed and investigates the viscoelastic behaviour of trabecular bone in compression through a series of stress relaxation tests at three strain levels and in three loading directions of each cubic specimen. A viscoelastic model is proposed to characterize the behaviour of trabecular bone and a spectrum of relaxation times is determined. Trabecular bone from the femoral head is non-linearly viscoelastic… CONTINUE READING
