— A multi-physics formulation for Data Driven Prognosis (DDP) is developed. Unlike traditional predictive strategies that require controlled off-line measurements or " training " for determination of constitutive parameters to derive the transitional statistics, the proposed DDP algorithm relies solely on in-situ measurements. It utilizes a deterministic… (More)
— Individuals who suffer anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury are at higher risk of developing knee osteoarthritis (OA) and almost 50% display symptoms 10-20 years post injury. Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) often does not protect against knee OA development. Accordingly, a multi-scale formulation for Data Driven Prognosis (DDP) of… (More)
