BACKGROUND Studying mechanical properties of canine trabecular bone is important for a better understanding of fracture mechanics or bone disorders and is also needed for numerical simulation of canine femora. No detailed data about elastic moduli and degrees of anisotropy of canine femoral trabecular bone has been published so far, hence the purpose of(More)
BACKGROUND There are several numerical investigations on bone remodelling after total hip arthroplasty (THA) on the basis of the finite element analysis (FEA). For such computations certain boundary conditions have to be defined. The authors chose a maximum of three static load situations, usually taken from the gait cycle because this is the most frequent(More)
BACKGROUND The use of artificial endoprostheses has become a routine procedure for knee and hip joints while ankle arthritis has traditionally been treated by means of arthrodesis. Due to its advantages, the implantation of endoprostheses is constantly increasing. While finite element analyses (FEA) of strain-adaptive bone remodelling have been carried out(More)
Designing a fully parametric CAD model of a sheet forming tool in a 3D CAD system expends temporal and financial effort and thus engineers shy away from it. The Institute of Forming Technology and Machines (IFUM) and the Society for the Advancement of Applied Computer Science (GFaI) are currently developing a new method for the model driven design of deep(More)
