Abstract

The dimensional changes in human and bovine cortical bone upon demineralization were studied. The strains caused by demineralization were comparable to toe-in strains during tensile testing of demineralized bone. Toe-in strains of demineralized cortical bones, measured during tensile tests, from various bovine and human bones were estimated to be 1.74-4.01% with approximately 2.4% for human femurs from earlier figures.
