Hello,

I'm kindoff new to biomechanics etc, so apologies for this rather
`basic' request.

Could anyone point me towards references they know of on the
mechanical characteristics of the human skeleton i.e. Young's Modulus
of bone, cartilage etc. The sort of information that would let me
construct a simple model of the `kinetic chain' from foot to hip.

Obviously if anyone could help me with references to
developed/established models, this would greatly help my own
fumbling, simplistic attempts.

Many thanks

Graham.
