Comparative Analysis of Mechanical Properties in Ox and Camel Bones: Insights from Tensile and Compressive Strength Testing

Abdul Rauf


Abstract: The paper presents data on Mechanical properties of femur, rib and scapula of ox and camel. The study utilized a Universal Testing Machine (UTM) to conduct tensile and compressive strength tests on these bone samples. The results indicate that rib bones exhibit higher tensile strength compared to femur and scapula bones, while spongy bones demonstrate lower compressive strength than compact bones. Additionally, the study highlights how decalcification affects bone strength, showing an increase in tensile strength for decalcified bones. This research underscores the simplicity, cost-effectiveness, and accuracy of the testing method, providing valuable insights into the mechanical behavior of bone tissues.
