Using a validated finite element model of the intact knee joint we aim to compute muscle forces and joint response in the stance phase of gait. The model is driven by reported in vivo kinematics-kinetics data and ground reaction forces in asymptomatic subjects. Cartilage layers and menisci are simulated as depth-dependent tissues with collagen fibril networks. A simplified model with less refined mesh and isotropic depth-independent cartilage is also considered to investigate the effect of… CONTINUE READING
