The relationship between the cross-sectional dimensions and the physical properties of bovine metacarpal compact bone in samples taken perpendicular to the long axis was investigated. The dynamic shear modulus differs from site to site along the shaft. The dorsal aspect of the metacarpus shows the highest moduli values, the ventral aspect the highest values of the damping of the dissipated energy. The various second moments of area, the moments of resistance, as well as the values of the dynamic shear modulus, represent adaptations to the function of the metacarpus. The values of the damping factors in the bony material are inversely related to the distribution of the amount of Ca along the bone shaft.
