  • Bone properties

    Dear All,

    I am desperate to find some references that will give me the
    mechanical properties of the cortical bone in the human femur.
    This information is required in order to carry out a finite element
    analysis.

    The most relevant parameters are Young's modulus, Poisson's ratio and
    shear modulus. As we are regarding bone as an isotropic material it
    is necessary to determine these values in three mutually orthogonal
    co-ordinate directions.

    All values and references will be gratefully accepted. A summary of
    replies will be posted as and when the replies cease to roll in.

    Thanking you in advance.

    Paul.

Working...
