Grahic Jump Location
(a) Orientation of test samples prepared from the sheep flexor tendon. The global coordinate system x1−x2 represents the fiber-aligned and transverse direction of the tendon, respectively; (b) representative sample placed into the custom made hooks and grips. In the local x-y coordinate system, y is the loading axis along the length of the sample, denoted by the arrow.
