Grahic Jump Location
The relationship between anisotropic, apparent elastic moduli and transport properties in bovine cancellous bone. The plots show: A) the mean and error values (standard deviation, sd, or standard error of the mean, sem) for modulus and permeability; B) the orthotropic data for all samples (n=20); and C) the linear trendlines with coefficients that are statistically different than zero (p<0.5) for the three orientations (when combined, R2=0.0405). Permeability values were originally presented in Kohles et al. 35.
Grahic Jump Location
A graphical comparison between porosity as a predictor of: A) apparent elastic moduli and B) permeability. The Kozeny equation was fit to the permeability versus porosity data as a means to empirically describe this relationship (C=0.022, equation 4).
Grahic Jump Location
The relationship between anisotropic, apparent elastic moduli and material stiffness coefficients. A linear regression applied to the combined data results in a positive correlation with R2=0.3172.
