Dear Biomch-l Readers,

A colleague is interested in the fracture behavior of cortical bone.
He is currently constructing compact tension specimes from bovine
cortical bone. We would like to know if anyone is currently doing or
has done this type of work in the past and if they would
be willing to share some of their experiences with us so that
we may not start down the wrong path.

Any information or pointers to the literature is
appreciated.

Regards,
