An overview of bio-mechanical models for bones and related topics

Hi everyone!

I'm looking for a good comprehencive overview about bio-mechanics and numerical simulation in

bio-mechanics. I'm mainly interested in the following topics:

-- mathematical models for bone simulation

-- contact problems and corresponding models (e.g., bone-prosthesis models, etc.)

-- corresponding numerics/simulations

and corresponding state-of-the-art.

Thanks in advance!

These have decent overviews on bone and modeling bone-implant interactions:

For detail on state-of-the-art computational modeling, check papers in the Journal of Biomechanics or Journal of Biomechanical Engineering. 

Dear Michelle,

Thanks a lot!
