Modelling of anisotropic cortical bone based on degradation mechanism
TypeArticles dans des revues avec comité de lecture
When an orthopaedic prosthesis is implanted, it is essential to ensure bone remodelling and to maintain the proper mechanical properties under specific loading conditions. The coupling between the remodelling and the loading is ensured by the mechanical stress inducing the osteo- genesis around the implant (Frost 2003). The objective of the present work is to develop a finite element tool and a multiscale mechanical model of the behaviour of the cortical bone in order to be able to optimize the stiffness of the prosthetic implant and to avoid overloaded or under- loaded regions.

A general method for the determination of the local orthotropic directions of heterogeneous materials: application to bone structures using µCT images CLUZEL, Christophe; ALLENA, Rachele (International Research Center for the Mathematics and Mechanics of Complex Systems - Università Dell’Aquila, Italy, 2018)To assess the degree (i.e., isotropy, transverse isotropy, or orthotropy) and the directions of anisotropy of a three-dimensional structure, information about its mesostructure is necessary. Usually, a topological analysis ...
