The tensile strength of skin is associated, in part, with its potential for laceration from impact. The quasi-static tensile strength of skin depends on orientation. The objective of this study was to determine whether the strength of skin in high speed tensile failure experiments exhibits a similar dependence on orientation. Tensile experiments were conducted at 6000 percent/s and 30 percent/s on dorsal skin of rats aged 1-6 months. Experiments were performed on specimens cut perpendicularly… CONTINUE READING
