A study was performed on collagen denaturation and age-related changes in the toughness of bone. A three-point bending test specimen and a fracture toughness test specimen were prepared longitudinally from the medical aspect of the midshaft of femur. The results showed that aging led to changes in the collagen network of human bone in conjunction with changes in the strength and fracture toughness.
