Experimental Analysis of the Bending Resistance of the Long Cortical Bovine Bone under Controlled Conditions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The value spectrum for the Module of Elasticity of the long cortical bovine bone is ample, according to the consulted specialized bibliography. The studies made to reach those values have been developed under non controlled conditions, and that fact could have affected the biological and structural conditions of the observed samples. In addition, the methodology used to perform the testing has not been mentioned, either. In the present study, a mechanical-experimental analysis of the cortical bovine bone tissue under controlled conditions is exposed (destructive tests of flexure in three points), which guarantees a significant conservation degree of the biological characteristics of the bone. Additionally, the speed of the improvement of the load is controlled to study the behavior of the long bones as structural elements. Tests in six angles of the action of the load were performed, and a value of 2.23 GPa was obtained for the Module of Elasticity.
