Dear List members,
I recently posted a question on testing bone. Specifically I am trying
to examine the effects of a drug on the strength and stiffness of bone. We
are testing rat femora. Currently, we are using a torsion device. The
bones are potted using metal alloy. A torque is applied to one end of the
bone; the max torque and bulk modulus are measured. However, I am skeptical
of the results. I would like to know what the advantages and disadvantages
to different mechanical tests (bending, compression, tension) are. If
anyone has tested bone using mechanical tests, can you please tell me which
test you used and why. Thanks for all your help,
-Vikram Sathyendra
