Subject: Body Segment Fracture Forces

I am beginning some work which requires data on the forces "needed" to
fracture certain bones in the human body. My University is lacking in
medical type texts; however, I will be able to obtain references through
inter-library loan. Specifically, I am looking for the forces (or range of
forces) which would fracture 1) the patella and 2) the radius. I would be
most appreciative for these values (and reference) or just a reference.
