Abstract

A two-level composite model for cortical bone based on generalized self-consistent method (GSCM) was extended to include transverse isotropy of both osteoanal and interstitial bone tissues. A three-level model was developed to investigate the influence of Haverian porosity as well as resorptive porosity on the transversely isotropic elastic moduli of cortical bone. In the three-level mode, both Haversian and resorptive porosity reduced the effective modulus of cortical bone in a linear fashion.
