The nonideal inelastic buckling behavior of single trabeculae from the subchondral region of the human medial tibial plateau was investigated. Wet specimens exhibited ductile buckling, whereas dry specimens buckled in a brittle manner. Extrapolation to ideal slenderness ratios showed Youngs modulus to be 1,650,000 psi in the wet state and 2,050,000 psi in the dry state, reasonably similar to cortical bone. Author
