Title: Mode II Fracture of Cortical Bone Tissue
Issue Date: 2010
Abstract: In this work a numerical study has been performed to verify the adequacy of the End Notched Flexure (ENF) test todetermine the fracture toughness under mode II loading of cortical bovine bone tissue. In this work a detailed numericalanalysis using the finite element method and a cohesive damage model was performed in order to optimize thespecimen geometry when applied to bone fracture characterization under mode II loading. A data reduction schemebased on specimen compliance and crack equivalent concept was used to overcome the difficulties inherent to crackmonitoring during its growth. It was verified that a judicious selection of the geometry allows a rigorous estimation oftoughness in mode II.
