ANTLER STRESS IN THE NASAL BONE REGION OF MOOSE
We used holographic nondestructive testing (HNDT) to study the impacts of antler-transmitted dynamic and shock-type forces which potentially affect development of the nasal region in moose skulls. Four different nasal region structures were used, and differences in the stability of the types studied were observed. The results were compared with deer skulls of different pedicel structure, and significant differences in biomechanics were found. Comparison between fresh- and dry- bone biomechanics Showed that dry bones may be used for biomechanical studies of thick-boned structures.
