Human Tissue Pull Test Data Human Tissue Pull Test Data pgrossm000 (Mechanical) (OP) 4 Apr 17 15:06 Hello- I am looking for data from a uniaxial pull test for human tissue. If anyone would be willing to provide that, I would appreciate it. Thank you! RE: Human Tissue Pull Test Data dik (Structural) 4 Apr 17 20:55 Not aware of any data, but, some of the medical journals may have something on this. About 20 years back, I put some sutures in to one of my moosehunting buddies who clipped himself with an axe... and skin is really stretchy. He lived and had it checked later and no infection. Problem with testing is that you have to use a reduced width in the area of testing to avoid measuring the area affected by clamping the sample in the test rig.

Did you not find what you wanted there? https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-insta...;* RE: Human Tissue Pull Test Data oldestguy (Geotechnical) 10 Apr 17 22:28 Hey, the age of the person makes a difference. My old skin is pretty weak. RE: Human Tissue Pull Test Data dik (Structural) 11 Apr 17 00:10 OG... and, mine's thin...
