Computational Bone Mechanics: From The Cloud To An Orthopedists Mobile Device
Published 2015 · Physics
Verified and validated simulations of the mechanical response of femurs, based on CT scans, have been recently presented. These simulations, based on high-order finite element methods (p-FEMs), may be used to diagnose the risk or fracture when used in clinical orthopedic practice. The first part of this chapter describes the methods used to create p-FEM models of patient-specific femurs and the in-vitro experiments used to assess the validity of the simulation results.
