Most work done on bone simulation has modeled the tissue as inhomogeneous and isotropic even though it is a recognized anisotropic material. Some recent investigations have included orthotropic behavior in bone finite elements (FE) models; however the problem regarding the orientation of these properties along the irregular bone anatomy remains. In this(More)
Sommario Logical design of data warehouses (DW) encompasses the sequence of steps which, given a core work-load, determine the logical scheme for the DW. A key step in logical design is view materialization. In this paper we propose an original approach to materialization in which the workload is characterized by the presence of complex queries represented(More)
The Monte Carlo method is widely used in the field of biomechanics to study the variability of diverse parameters, like tissues properties, magnitude and direction of loads, kinematic of joints, among others. In particular, the failure of bone tissue, which is the target of this investigation, has been extensively studied; however, it is common to find in(More)
