We present here an anatomically based model of the human masticatory system that provides a framework for simulating the complex chewing process. The initial motivation for creating this model was the desire to have a computational model of the human jaw that can be used to simulate the action of simple bites, and to calculate the stresses and forces on the teeth that are involved. The model created also provides a platform that can be used to investigate other features of the masticatory… CONTINUE READING
