Paper Abstract

To compare the elasticity of bones covered with soft tissue and the elasticity of defleshed and dried bones, we used sampling screws to make the surface movements of the bones visible through the soft tissue. We compared fresh and dry European moose skulls before and after skinning. External forces were focused on the skull bones through the pedicles. A high correlation in fringe orientation was observed in the case of thick bone structures with rigid interdigited sutures. We also compared compression dynamics of fresh and dry moose antler cubes.
