These studies also show that total collagen content is strongly related to failure energy and fracture toughness of bone tissue, suggesting that type I collagen is a primary arrestor of cracks. Type I collagen is a vital element relating to the energy required for matrix failure, independent of size or geometry. It is thus the main determinant of bone toughness, which is defined by the area under the stress-strain curve, known as the modulus of toughness (Fig. 2-8). Whole Bone B FIG. 2-4 A.
