Abstract: Abstract--The apparent mechanical behavior of trabecular bone depends on properties at the tissue or trabecular level. Many investigators have attempted to determine trabecular tissue properties and loading. However, accuracy and applicability of all methods reported are limited. The small size of the trabeculae and a possible size effect are complicating factors when using traditional testing methods on single trabeculae. Other methods reported, using models that describe the trabecular structure, are of lim…
