The collagen-bridged microcrack model for the cortical bone tensile strength was analyzed. The introduction of characteristic fiber length, into the bridging of fiber was a distinct feature adopted by this model. It was found that for an estimated parameter range, the absolute maximum and minimum estimated characteristic length were 13.5 micrometer and 3.7 micrometer respectively.
