On the Relationship Between Microstructure of the Cortical Bone and its Overall Elastic Properties

Abstract The relationship between microstructure of the cortical bone and its effective elastic properties is discussed. We utilize results of Kachanov et al (1994) on materials with cracks/pores of diverse shapes. Bone's microstructure is modeled using available micrographs. The calculated ani...
