    Abstract

    Pin-hole shear stresses generated by tapered (conical) and untapered (standard) external fixator pins were compared using a photoelastic technique. The results show that shear stresses progressively increase as a conical pin is inserted but remain the same for the standard pin irrespective of the depth of insertion.
