Paper Abstract

The displacement of human dried facial bone was measured and considered under static loads by real time holographic interferometry. Materials were dried human skulls. Various loads were applied to the zygomatic, maxillary and other facial bones by means of a loading apparatus. As the experimental result obtained from the load to the neighborhood of the fronto-malar suture on the zygomatic bone, density of interference fringes increased on the zygomatic bone more than on the other facial bones and parallel interference fringes were observed on the zygomatic bone. Densities of orbital maxillary and zygomatic bones were greater, when the load was applied to the center of infraorbital margin than when it was applied to the other facial bones. When the neighborhood of the front-malar suture on the frontal bone was loaded, coarse interference fringes occurred on the zygomatic, maxillary and orbital bones, while fine interference fringes appeared on the frontal bone. When the maxillary bone near infraorbital margin was loaded, concentric circular fringes were observed. The result shows that the displacement depends on the loading point. When the load applied to the zygomatic bone, parallel fringes appeared on the bone. This means that the bone deformed almost as a body.
