Abstract
Experiments were conducted to measure the force-deformation of human costosternal and costovertebral articulations. These data are needed to enable studies to be made of the mechanical role of the rib cage in different situations. Five sterna and five specimens each incorporating the intact right-side costovertebral articulations of ribs 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 were obtained at autopsy from male cadavers. The specimens were dead-weight loaded in a number of ways, and the displacements that resulted are reported.
