Abstract
Holographic interferometry was used to study the mechanical properties of human calvaria samples taken from macerated skulls. Deformations caused by static loading as well as their derivative functions are calculated from the recorded holographic interferograms. Elliptically shaped interference fringe patterns indicate the.generation of a shallow funnel around the point of force introduction. The lowest point of this impression is shifted sagittally in anterior direction with increased load. The load deformation curve is nonlinear before entering a linear range, demonstrating that in this experiment the calvaria can be regarded as a so called Kelvin body.
