Comparison of elastic modulus and shear modulus of silk protein material and fibula. The average elastic modulus and shear modulus of the silk protein material was 0.49 GPa and 0.66 GPa, respectively. The average elastic modulus and shear modulus of the cadaver fibula sample was 2.06 GPa and 0.55 GPa, respectively. GPa = Gigapascal
