The relationship between the mechanical properties of bone in three-point bending and eight histocompositional variables was studied. Ultimate stress, ultimate strain, and elastic modulus were measured in 35 beams of cortical bone from bovine tibias using standard ASTM methods. Four elements of porosity were determined by point counting, mineralization by ashing, and wet and dry apparent density from weight and volume. Collagen fiber orientation was estimated using polarized light, and… CONTINUE READING
