Abstract

A new technique was used to determine the elastic modulus and failure strength of bovine trabecular bone. Trabecular bone was milled into miniature dumbbell-shaped test coupons, placed in a micro-testing machine (MTM) and strained to failure. A load cell measured resulting loads and strain was measured using laser interferometry. Preliminary results indicate bovine trabecular bone has a modulus of 1.8 GPa and an ultimate strength of 28 MPa.
