A three-scale finite element investigation into the effects of tissue mineralisation and lamellar organisation in human cortical and trabecular bone
Bone is an exceptional material that is lightweight for efficient movement but also exhibits excellent strength and stiffness imparted by a composite material of organic proteins and mineral crystals that are intricately ...
Mechanisms of osteocyte stimulation in osteoporosis
Experimental studies have shown that primary osteoporosis' caused by oestrogen deficiency results in localised alterations in bone tissue properties and mineral composition. Additionally, changes to the lacunar-canalicular ...
An experimental and computational investigation of the post-yield behaviour of trabecular bone during vertebral device subsidence
Interbody fusion device subsidence has been reported clinically. An enhanced understanding of the mechanical behaviour of the surrounding bone would allow for accurate predictions of vertebral subsidence. The multiaxial ...
