Abstract

Compact bone is a damaging viscoelastic material. The mechanical properties of bone are subtly affected by temperature and drastically different in tensile and compressive loading materials. In order to understand the effect of loading mode on the viscoelastic and time-dependent damaging behavior of compact bone, this paper conducts a study to establish: 1) the nature of tensile and compressive creep at increasing load levels, 2) modulus degradation and creep rates due to increasing applied loading, and 3) the effects of increasing testing temperature from 21°C to 37°C on property degradation on tests performed in tensile and compressive creep.
