- Shear strength behavior of human trabecular boneArnav Sanyal
Orthopaedic Biomechanics Laboratory, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of California, Berkeley, CA 94720 1740, USA
J Biomech 45:2513-9. 2012..We conclude that human trabecular bone is generally much weaker in shear than compression at the apparent level, reflecting different failure mechanisms at the tissue level...
