Fractography has not been fully developed as a useful technique in assessing failure mechanisms of bone. While fracture surfaces of osteonal bone have been explored, this may not apply to conventional mechanical testing of mouse bone. Thus, the focus of this work was to develop and evaluate the efficacy of a fractography protocol for use in supplementing the interpretation of failure mechanisms in mouse bone. Micro-computed tomography and three-point bending were performed on femora of two… CONTINUE READING
