Title FronimosEtAl_Suppl2
Downloaded 4 times
Description Schematic representation of the experimental setup used to test the hypothesis that proximally-concave joints are more resistant to joint failure by rotation than proximally-convex joints. The setup is depicted for a proximally-concave joint with the maximum load applied to the proximal end of the free element.

Description Raw measurements of the weight (in grams) applied to the proximal end of the free element that is necessary to cause joint failure by rotation. The variables are those presented in Text Figure 5. A + symbol denotes the addition of 20 g of weight to the distal end of the free element, representing the presence of additional vertebrae in series.
