The combined use of experimental and mathematical models can lead to a better understanding of fracture healing. In this study, a mathematical model, which was originally established by Bailón-Plaza and van der Meulen (J Theor Biol 212:191-209, 2001), was applied to an experimental model of a semi-stabilized murine tibial fracture. The mathematical model(More)
The processes of wound healing and bone regeneration and problems in tissue engineering have been an active area for mathematical modeling in the last decade. Here we review a selection of recent models which aim at deriving strategies for improved healing. In wound healing, the models have particularly focused on the inflammatory response in order to(More)
This paper addresses the relationships between the microscopic properties of bone and its elasticity at the millimetre scale, or mesoscale. A method is proposed to estimate the mesoscale properties of cortical bone based on a spatial distribution of acoustic properties at the microscopic scale obtained with scanning acoustic microscopy. The procedure to(More)
We develop a simulation model of the OSI Network Layer of packet-switching networks. We present the scope of our research and the need for simulation tools. We discuss the migration from an MS Windows interactive, real-time, GUI-based tool to two packages that can run under Linux. We describe aspects common to all serial execution versions that have been(More)
