Ultrasonics propagation properties of collagen

Phys Med Biol. 1980 Sep;25(5):827-37. doi: 10.1088/0031-9155/25/5/001.


Ultrasonic absorption measurements in the range 0.5--56 MHz, and measurements of velocity at 8.87 MHz, were made in collagen suspensions in which molecular integrity was preserved, in a range of concentrations 0.07--0.7% by weight, at 10 and 20 degrees C. Absorption and velocity values, per unit concentration, exhibited by collagen are much greater in magnitude than those exhibited by globular proteins.
