Biomechanics ASBMR

Location: http://depts.washington.edu/bonebio/ASBMRed/mechanics.html

The primary responsibility of the skeleton is to withstand loadbearing. Bone is strong, it is stiff, it is tough. Bone can withstand extremely high loads, and will remain strong even following several million cycles of load.

Bone Cells ASBMR

Location: http://depts.washington.edu/bonebio/ASBMRed/cells.html

There are two categories of bone cells. Osteoclasts are in the first category. They resorb (dissolve) the bone. The other category is the osteoblast family, which consists of osteoblasts that form bone, osteocytes that help maintain bone, and lining cells that cover the surface of the bone.

Bone Growth and Remodeling ASBMR

Location: http://depts.washington.edu/bonebio/ASBMRed/growth.html

During childhood, the long bones (in the arms, legs, and back) grow at the ends of the bones, whereas the flat bones (such as the skull) have a different pattern of growth. Adult bone actually continues to expand, although very slowly. Bone also continually undergoes remodeling, replacing old bone with...

Bone Structure and the Function of the Skeleton ASBMR

Location: http://depts.washington.edu/bonebio/ASBMRed/structure.html

Bone, the material that makes vertebrates distinct from other animals, has evolved over several hundred million years to become a remarkable tissue. Bone is a material that has the same strength as cast iron, but achieves this while remaining as light as wood.

Collagen and Bone Matrix ASMBR

Location: http://depts.washington.edu/bonebio/ASBMRed/matrix.html

Mature bone is composed of proteins and minerals. Approximately 60% the weight of the bone is mineral, mainly calcium and phosphate. The rest is water and matrix, which is formed before the mineral is deposited, and can be considered the scaffolding for the bone. About 90% of the matrix proteins...
