The “boot top” fracture sustained by skiers is a typical three-point bending fracture. In this type of fracture, as shown in Figure 2-28, one bending moment acted on the proximal tibia as the skier fell forward over the top of the ski boot. An equal moment, produced by the fixed foot and ski, acted on the distal tibia. * *This flow chart is designed for classroom or group discussion. Flow chart is not meant to be exhaustive.

Figure 2-25 illustrates angular deformation in structures subjected to these loading modes. Clinically, shear fractures are most often seen in cancellous bone. Shear stress is greatest when the angle of applied force is equal to 45°, where it has a value that is half that of the maximum normal stress.
