A finite-element micromechanics model for Haversian cortical bone tissue has been developed and studied. The model is an extension of two-dimensional micromechanics techniques for fiber-reinforced composite materials. Haversian systems, or secondary osteons, are considered to be the fiber component, and interstitial lamellar bone the matrix material. The… CONTINUE READING
