The Biomechanics Core Facility conducts mechanical analysis and testing of biological and engineered materials. Static and dynamic mechanical characterization is performed in this facility through various modes of testing (compressive, tensile, torsional, flexural, fatigue, etc). Research applications include trabecular bone microdamage, mechanical integrity of bone repair and fracture calluses, hydrogel material properties, thin film characterization, and biomedical device testing.
