A highly vascular tissue, it has an excellent capacity for self-repair and can alter its properties and configuration in response to changes in mechanical demand. For example, changes in bone density are commonly observed after periods of disuse and of greatly increased use; changes in bone shape are noted during fracture healing and after certain surgeries. Thus, bone adapts to the mechanical demands placed on it. This chapter describes the composition and structure of bone tissue, the mechanical properties of bone, and the behavior of bone under different loading conditions.

This chapter describes the composition and structure of bone tissue, the mechanical properties of bone, and the behavior of bone under different loading conditions. Various factors that affect the mechanical behavior of bone in vitro and in vivo are also discussed. Bone Composition and Structure Bone tissue is a specialized connective tissue whose solid composition suits it for its supportive and protective roles. Like other connective tissues, it consists of cells and an organic extracellular matrix of fibers and ground substance produced by the cells.

Fractures produced by both types of bending are commonly observed clinically, particularly in the long bones. Three-point bending takes place when three forces acting on a structure produce two equal moments, each the product of one of the two peripheral forces and its Force Neutral axis Before loading Under shear loading FIG. 2-24 When a structure is loaded in shear, lines originally at right angles on a plane surface within the structure change their orientation and the angle becomes obtuse or acute.
