However in the alivincular ligament of, for example, Ostrea, the neutral axis does not couespond to the division between outer and inner layers, but the only part of the inner layer rvhich is functional is situated belorv the axis ( Figure 7 ), that part above is subjected to tensile stress and becomes fractured. Indeed, the fibrous structure of the inner layer appears unsuited to withstand lateral tension, and fractures occur between the fibers.
