Osseous tissue functions: Protect Structure Lever system Mineral and fat storage Hematopoiesis (Hemopoiesis) – blood cell formation Osseous tissue characteristics: Inorganic (calcium salts) and organic (osteoid) elements Highly resistant to tensile and compressive forces tensile strength = 2500-3000 kg/cm 2 (17 tons/sq in, equal to iron, 1/3 the wt.)) Compressive strength in articular regions, male adult – 270 kg/step (walking)
