... velocities under intermediate loads. We also found that the jaw muscles exerted higher specific tensions and had a greater curvature to their force–velocity relationship. The consistent patterns across five species suggest that these jaw and leg muscles have specialized in different ways. Examination...

... in tension (young adult and aged), (2) annular cartilages without perichondria tested in compression (young adult and aged) and (3) bovine auricular cartilage samples without perichondria tested in both tension and compression. Results of this study demonstrated that all cartilages were highly viscoelastic...

...Gwendolen C. Reilly; John D. Currey ABSTRACT During locomotion, the anterior cortex of the equine radius is loaded predominantly in tension, the posterior predominantly in compression. The anterior cortex is relatively strong in tension, the posterior in compression. We investigated the pattern...
