A phase field approach to trabecular bone remodeling


We introduce a continuous modeling approach which combines elastic responds of the trabecular bone structure, the concentration of signaling mole-cules within the bone and a mechanism how this concentration at the bone surface is used for local bone formation and resorption. In an abstract setting bone can be considered as a shape changing structure. For… (More)
