Bone is a viscoelastic connective tissue composed primarily of mineral and type I collagen, which interacts with water, affecting its mechanical properties. Therefore, both the level of hydration and the loading rate are expected to influence the measured nanomechanical response of bone. In this study, we investigated the influence of three distinct hydration conditions, peak loads and loading/unloading rates on the elastic modulus and hardness of canine femoral cortical bone via… CONTINUE READING
