Abstract

I present a review of the literature pertaining to the mechanical properties of bone, articular cartilage, and collagenous tissues such as ligament and tendon. The basic terminology involved in the mechanics of materials is briefly discussed. I also discuss the influence of physical activity, disuse, and age on the mechanical properties of these tissues.
