Bone and its adaptation to mechanical loading: a review

Abstract:

Bone is a remarkable living material that comes in two forms with different porosities and different macrostructure, but with the same highly organised microstructure and nanostructure. As bone accumulates damage, it is removed and replaced. When the mechanical demands on bone increase the bone mass increases, while reductions in the loading leads to the removal of bone, thus bone can be considered a 'smart material'. The ongoing replacement of old bone tissue by new bone tissue is called rem...
