    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
