A Model of Bone Adaptation Using a Global Optimisation Criterion Based on the Trajectorial Theory of Wolff.


Julius Wolff originally proposed that trabecular bone was influenced by mechanical stresses during the formative processes of growth and repair such that trabeculae were required to intersect at right angles. In this work, we have developed an analytical parametric microstructural model, which captures this restriction. Using homogenisation theory, a global… (More)
