Knowledge of the influence of mineral variations (i.e., mineral heterogeneity) on biomechanical bone behavior at the trabecular level is limited. The aim of this study is to investigate how this material property affects the intratrabecular distributions of stress and strain in human adult trabecular bone. Two different sets of finite element (FE) models of trabecular samples were constructed; tissue stiffness was either scaled to the local degree of mineralization of bone as measured with… CONTINUE READING
