To characterise the flow of a fluid through a uniform porous medium, the medium may be completely described by its permeability, a measure of flow resistance. Fluid flow in the intertrabecular spaces of cancellous bone has been recognised as an important factor in a number of physical phenomena. In order to investigate the interdependence of permeability, porosity and the structural parameters, we adapted a morphological model and systematically varied its structural parameters. By simulating a… CONTINUE READING
