Dear All

I am setting up a 4-point bend test of samples of compact bone (50mm x 10mm
x 5mm)

I have two questions that I would like some answers to:

1. What diameter do researchers recommend for the contacts/supports?
2. What equations are used to calculate surface strains?

The literature is quite confused on these points
