Title: Humans "can take a punch"
Post by: Hock on May 08, 2012, 03:53:41 PM
Interesting article...

"...
Bone is extraordinarily strong ounce for ounce, bone is stronger than steel, since a bar of steel of comparable size would weigh four or five times as much. A cubic inch of bone can in principle bear a load of 19,000 lbs. (8,626 kg) or more roughly the weight of five standard pickup trucks making it about four times as strong as concrete...."
