... vertebral trabecular bone mechanical properties (yield strength, stiffness and toughness) throughout development in Florida manatees ( Trichechus manatus latirostris ), obligate undulatory swimmers. Thoracic, lumbar and caudal vertebrae were dissected from manatees ( N =20) during necropsies. We extracted 6...

... also performed dynamic bending tests on intervertebral segments from the lumbo-caudal joint and the joint between caudal vertebrae 7 and 8. Dynamic bending stiffness (N m rad −1 ) increases with increasing bending amplitude and is independent of bending frequency. Damping coefficient (kg m 2 rad −2 s...
