Experimental setup. On a universal testing machine, 2000 consecutive cyclic loadings were applied with sinusoidal lateral compression/distraction and torque loading alternating every 200 cycles. The cylinder axes of the samples were aligned with the axis of the actuator using universal joints to eliminate confounding bending moments (see dimensional sketch on the left).
