Fig. 3.3 Stresses at r ΒΌ 0 in the Williams solution are unbounded for large tendon insertion angle.
( a ) The exponent on the leading term becomes less than one and the leading term becomes singular
for sufficiently high tendon insertion angle. ( b ) The threshold value of tendon insertion angle is a
function of Poisson's ratio
3.3.2 Peeling Models
The next model considered involves peeling of a tendon away from a rigid bone as
in Fig. 3.4 . The tendon is very thin (thickness t much smaller than the width w of the
tendon into the page) and is pulled away from the bone with a force f at an angle
For the case of a tendon that has no bending resistance and that does not stretch
