The effect of two types of cross-linking on some mechanical properties of collagen.

Abstract:

Samples of collagen were cross-linked by two different methods: (a) glutaraldehyde and (b) a combination of dehydrothermal treatment and cyanamide. The elastic modulus, the ultimate tensile strength (fracture stress), strain to failure, work of fracture, and fracture toughness were measured before and after cross-linking in ambient laboratory conditions, and during immersion in water. These tests were all performed over a range of strain rates. For collagen tested in the wet condition, it was...
