Paper Abstract

The deformation of the facial bone made up of many complex- formed bones was measured and the role of suture considered with the mechanical response. 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 the other facial bones by means of a loading apparatus. As the experimental result obtained from the load to the neighborhood of the temporo-zygomatic suture on the temporal bone, density of interference fringes increased on the temporal bone more than on the zygomatic and other facial bones and parallel interference fringes were observed on the temporal bone. The buffer effect on the temporo-zygomatic suture to the load was greater than the sutures of other facial bones. When the amount of load was increased on the same bone, it was expected that the zygomatic arch was broken independently as the type II of the fracture patterns by Knight and NOrth. When the neighborhood of the median suture on the maxillary bone was loaded, fine interference fringes were observed horizontally on the maxillary and zygomatic bones, while coarse interference fringes occurred on the frontal bone and the bilateral fracture pattern by LeFort was expected.
