Micromechanical modeling of elastic properties of cortical bone accounting for anisotropy of dense tissue

The paper analyzes the connection between microstructure of the osteonal cortical bone and its overall elastic properties. The existing models either neglect anisotropy of the dense tissue or simplify cortical bone microstructure (accounting for Haversian canals only). These simplifications (related...
