In this study, a 3-D finite element model of L2-L3 body-intervertebral disc-body unit was developed with geometric definition obtained from literature. The F.E. model consists of cortical bone, cancellous bone, end-plate, nucleus pulposus and annulus fibrosis. The latter was modeled as a composite of collagen fibers embedded in a matrix of ground substance… CONTINUE READING
