... tensile loading. It is possible that sloth limb bones are modified for enhanced tensile strength, perhaps at the expense of compressive strength. Forelimb and hindlimb bones of two-toed ( Choloepus hoffmanni ) and three-toed ( Bradypus variegatus ) sloths were tested in compression and bending to evaluate...

... than inactive or dead locusts. This indicates a possible tradeoff between active control versus reduced speed. Interestingly, alive insects also tended to perform a characteristic bending movement of the body at impact. This biomechanical adaptation might reduce the rebound and shorten the time...

... in shape on the resistance to bending within a narrow location along the ray. We did this by first calculating an ANCOVA between log 10 second moment of area and log 10 area nested within location. Positive residuals from this ANCOVA indicate a greater resistance to bending than would be expected from...

... and bending frequency measured during steady undulatory swimming. To assess the notochord's contribution to the mechanical behavior of the whole body, we also measured EI and C of the whole body, the body with skin removed, and the notochord with the outer fibrous sheath removed. When subjected to dynamic...

...A. ROLAND ENNOS 1. The magnitude and distribution of the torques caused by inertial and aerodynamic forces on the wings of Diptera in flight are calculated. 2. The bending torque at stroke reversal due to the inertia of the virtual mass of air bound to the wing is only slightly less than the torque...
