14 The structure and mechanics of bone
Catigrized hierarchical structure into 4 levels Nano, micro, meso, whole bone Different levels of simplification Fracture mechanics Size effect The role of genetics and external forces



17 Elastic behaviour

18 Fracture behaviour Mineral-collagen interaction in bone through either ions or hydrogen bonds: Ionic interactions Sliding of layered water films Sacrificial bonds and hidden lengths Virtual internal bonds Bone becomes insensitive to flaws or cracks at sub-micro level Counter-arguments: flaw weaken strength of nanotube compare with flawless one

19 Stiffness v.s. toughness
Stiffness and toughness go against each other Increase stiffness with increasing mineralization. – mineral stiffer

20 Increase mineral decrease toughness
Denser crystal inhibit collagen from deformation Reduce post-yield deformation Less micro-damage, means lease total work to be done for breakage.

21 Micro scale level

22 Plexiform bone=fibrolamellar bone=laminar
Compact bone Woven bone Osteonal bone Plexiform bone=fibrolamellar bone=laminar Primary Secondary Lamellar bone

23 Woven bone Primary bone Secondary and plexiform bone

24 Woven bone: found in infant or fractue callus; randomly arranged collagen fibers; pool mechanical properties, quick grow Osteonal bone: primary (no haversian system): are likely formed by mineralization of cartilage, less lamellae than secondary, small vascular channels (no haversian), may be stronger than secondary Secondary osteon (haversian system, cement line): always younger then the bone replaced, so, less mineral, low E(stiffness) than interstitial; cement line: discontinuity between inter and secondary, so cracks are likely initiate there or divert from Plexiform bone=fibrolamellar bone=laminar Rapid grow, offer increased mechanical support for longer periods of time. more surface area then osteonal, This increases the amount of bone which can be formed in a given time frame and provided a way to more rapidly increase bone stiffness and strength in a short period of time. greater stiffness than primary or secondary cortical bone

25 Lamellae Osteoclasts Lacunae Canaliculi


27 Fracture mechanics in micro-scale
Micro-structure interface, discontinuity cause cracks are likely to initiate or divert from here Uncrack bridges R-curve Old people low KC and low R-curve (brittle) Young people High KC and high R-curve (tough)

28 Low mineral content 48% High mineral content85%
Work of fracture 6200J m work of fracture 20 J m-2

29 Size effect remain puzzling
Bone shape is determined by gene
