Nonlinear Micro Finite Element Analysis of Human Trabecular Bone

SIMULIA's picture

Trabecular bone must withstand the loads that arise during daily activities as well as those due to trauma. Investigation of the mechanical properties of trabecular bone presents a challenge due to its high porosity and complex architecture, both of which vary substantially between anatomic sites and across individuals. While Micro Finite Element (μFE) analysis of trabecular bone is the most commonly used method to analyze trabecular bone mechanical behavior, the large size of these models has forced researchers to use custom codes and linear analysis. The nonlinear capabilities in Abaqus allow efficient analysis of these models and provide  answers to important research questions.
