Although evidence suggests that yield strains for trabecular bone are isotropic, i.e., independent of loading direction, decisive support for this hypothesis has remained elusive. To explicitly test whether yield strains for trabecular bone are isotropic, compressive and tensile yield strains of 51 specimens of bovine tibial trabecular bone (0.41 +/- 0.08 g/cm3 [mean apparent density +/- SD]) were measured without end artifacts in on-axis (along the principal trabecular orientation) and off… CONTINUE READING
