Abstract

The anisotropic pore structure and elasticity of cancellous bone cause wave speeds and attenuation in cancellous bone to vary with angle. Anisotropy has been introduced into Biot theory by using an empirical expression for the angle-and porosity-dependence of tortuosity. Predictions of a modified anisotropic Biot–Attenborough theory are compared with measurements of pulses centred on 100 kHz and 1 MHz transmitted through water-saturated porous samples. The samples are 13 times larger than the original bone samples. Despite the expected effects of scattering, which is neglected in the theory, at 100 kHz the predicted and measured transmitted waveforms are similar.
