|Title:||Porosity studies and determination of elastin content in canine connective tissues|
|Authors:||Ahood, Abdul Latiff|
|Keywords:||Engineering Physics;Engineering Physics|
|Abstract:||<p>By means of porosity curves and diffusion equations solved by computer, the microvoid and macrovoid (hence elastin) content of various tissues from the dog are determined. The elastin content is correlated to the stress-strain characteristics of the respective tissues obtained previously (Project I) and the results are supported, to some extent, by histology. The area correction for microvoids are found to be essential for the cases of the abdominal skin and the cornea anly. The correction for macrovoids are essential for all the tissues except the Achilles tendon.</p>|
