Abstract

A corrected item is published in: Journal of Biomechanics, Vol. 32(1999), No. 1, p. 165-173 A three-dimensional high-resolution computer reconstruction of a proximal canine femur was made using a micro-computerized tomography scanner to study tissue stresses and strain. For the stance phase of walking, an average tissue principal strain in the volume of interest (VOI) of 279 strain was found, with a standard deviation of 212 strain. In more than 95% of the tissue volume, the principal stresses and strains were in a range from zero to three times the average, for all hip directions. This indicated that no single load creates even stress or strain distributions in the trabeculae. [27 Refs; In English]
