Abstract

A series of experiments were carried out to gain more insight into mineralization-related strains in bone by studying the inverse problem of dimensional changes related to demineralization. Focus was on different anatomical orientations in miniaturized specimens of human and chemically altered bovine bone. Significant strains upon demineralization were observed. The strains indicate mechanisms of matrix expansion during mineralization consistent with observed in vivo microcracking patterns.
