femur total energy absorbed before break  
A calculated measurement of the maximum amount of energy the femur, the major bone in the upper portion of the hindlimb of quadrupeds or the lower limb of bipeds, can absorb under stress before it breaks, derived as the area under the stress-strain or load-displacement curve at the point of failure. Bone is the hard, rigid form of connective tissue constituting most of the skeleton of vertebrates and composed chiefly of calcium salts.
