    In this portion I ask that anyone who has the data at hand to please assist in providing the following :

    Chest Plate/Sternum thickness for average adult male


    Frontal skull thickness for average adult male
    (6.1mm sandwich structure?)

    I'd be glad to hear other parameters such as density, elasticity, cohesion, etc.
    but they are not critical at this time. I believe I have found a good company that can provide the needed bone simulant for these areas; http://www.synbone.com/

    If you have a different provider for bone simulant, please share.

    I'm looking for input because I want to correlate your info with that given to me by the company, since I've never dealt with this kind of puchase before. And of course, in trying to keep with a relatively acceptable scientific method. (And I get a headache looking over page after page of anatomical information that never seems to have what I'm looking for, the words start to turn into gibberish :confused: )

    Thanks :D
