Abstract

A study was done on the variations in apparent strength and stiffness of human vertebral cancellous bone. A linear trend of whole vertebral body strength with global location was presented in consistence with differences in the ultimate load between vertebra levels. The strength of the stepwise relationship between the estimated ultimate load and the global location suggested that the ultimate load of thoraic and lumbar vertebrae were different but nearly constant within their regions.
