Biomechanical simulation study on the forms of the frontal bone and facial bones of the recent human facial skeleton by using a two-dimensional frame model with stepwise variable cross-section members.


The form in frontal view of the recent human facial skeleton, including the frontal bone, was simulated under the condition of uniform strength to cope with the forces in the chewing action, by using the two-dimensional frame model made of members with step-wise variable cross-sections and by using the finite element analysis method. The simulation, in… (More)
