Micromechanics of Cortical Bone: Determination of Interfacial Debonding Strength of Cement Lines

Research Category: 
ITS and FEA of skeletons

The property of cement line has been hypothesized to play an important role in strength of cortical bone, and may also be a crucial factor for understanding lamellar structures in both cortical and trabecular bone tissues. The lamellar properties of bone tissue are crucial in determining mechanical properties at sub-microstructural level
