Nonlinear micromechanical modeling of vertebral trabecular bone

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

A nonlinear foam model for vertebral trabecular bone is used in finite element simulations of compression tests on cylindrical specimens of bone with varying architectures. The results show how significantly the architecture can effect the overall properties, while the material properties remain unchanged. Nonlinearity is introduced by treating the material as elastic-perfectly plastic, with realistic results.
