Three-dimensional finite element analysis of the human temporomandibular joint disc.
A three-dimensional finite element model of the articular disc of the human temporomandibular joint has been developed. The geometry of the articular cartilage and articular disc surfaces in theExpand

A mathematical model of the patellofemoral joint.
A mathematical model of the patellofemoral joint taking into account movements and forces in the sagittal plane is described. The system parameters of the model are the locations of the attachmentsExpand

Mechanical properties of cancellous bone in the human mandibular condyle are anisotropic.
The objective of the present study was (1) to test the hypothesis that the elastic and failure properties of the cancellous bone of the mandibular condyle depend on the loading direction, and (2) to relate these properties to bone density parameters. Expand

A three-dimensional mathematical model of the human masticatory system predicting maximum possible bite forces.
A three-dimensional mathematical model of the human masticatory system, containing 16 muscle forces and two joint reaction forces, is described. The model allows simulation of static bite forces andExpand

Contribution of Jaw Muscle Size and Craniofacial Morphology to Human Bite Force Magnitude
The existence of an interaction among bite force magnitude, jaw muscle size (e.g., cross-sectional area, thickness), and craniofacial morphology is widely accepted. Bite force magnitude depends onExpand

Architecture of the human jaw‐closing and jaw‐opening muscles
The human jaw‐closing and jaw‐opening muscles produce forces leading to the development of three‐dimensional bite and chewing forces and to three‐dimensional movements of the jaw. The length of theExpand

Three-dimensional finite-element model of the human temporomandibular joint disc during prolonged clenching.
In the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), overloading induced by prolonged clenching appears to be important in the cascade of events leading to disc displacement. In this study, the effect of discExpand

Coactivation of jaw muscles: recruitment order and level as a function of bite force direction and magnitude.
The aim of this study was to obtain insight into the coactivation behaviour of the jaw muscles under various a priori defined static loading conditions of the mandible. As the masticatory system isExpand

Combined finite-element and rigid-body analysis of human jaw joint dynamics.
The jaw joint plays a crucial role in human mastication. It acts as a guidance for jaw movements and as a fulcrum for force generation. The joint is subjected to loading which causes tensions andExpand

A comparison of human masseter muscle thickness measured by ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging.
Non-invasive imaging techniques such as computerized tomography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and ultrasonography enable measurements of the cross-section and thickness of human jaw muscles inExpand
