View Full Version : tensil tests data request

08-01-2008, 06:37 PM
Dear subscribers

I am a researcher at Istituti Ortopedici Rizzoli in Bologna (Italy).
I am studying the tensile properties of ligaments and tendons and I am looking for experimental data.
Because my laboratory does not have tensile tests devices, and because in literature I found few articles with complete tensil data of the yield and failure regions, I would ask if someone would share some data of tensile quasi-static tests of ligaments and tendons.
I know that usually data are expressed as strain(%)-stress(MPa), but I please you to send data in the format of stretch(mm)-load(N).

Thank you very much.
Best regards
Marco Bontempi
