Abstract

Increased strain rate and decreased amounts of secondary, Haversian tissue cause significant increases in ultimate strength, modulus of elasticity and energy absorption capacity. Increased density has a similar effect on strength and modulus. No statistically significant evidence of a critical velocity was observed.
