Dear BIOMCH-L readers,

I am interested in finding information related to osteoportic bone,
specifically the mechanical properties of osteoporotic
bone. I have done several literature searches and have met with
limited success. Does anyone out there knows of any specific
references that deal with this subject or general pointers that
might get me started in the right direction?

Some more specific topics are:
fracture toughness of osteoporotic bone and how it compares
with normal bone

Compressive strength, elastic constants, etc. of osteoporatic
bone
and the viscoelastic behavior of osteoporotic bone


Thanks in advance for any information you might have.

I'll post a summary to the list of all the responses I receive.
