Stiffness, transverse area and modulus. Relation between the relative increases in stiffness, transverse area and modulus from 6 to 18 weeks (relative increases make the values independent of bead placement). Increase in stiffness is mostly caused by increasing modulus, but there is a negative correlation between increase in modulus and transverse area (symbolized by drawn line on bottom plane).
