An elastic-plastic finite element analysis is performed on the AIA shear specimen to evaluate its effectiveness to yield ultimate shear strength values. The effect of geometry, material properties, and yield criteria are discussed in the light of applications to human femoral cortical bone. Specimen dimensions are noted as follows: W, width, D, hole… CONTINUE READING
