We study apparent elastic moduli of trabecular bone, which is represented, for simplicity, by a two- or three-dimensional periodic cellular network. The term "apparent" refers to the case when the region used in calculations (or specimen size) is smaller than a representative volume element and the moduli depend on the size of that region and boundary conditions. Both the bone tissue forming the network and the pores (represented by a very soft material) are assumed, for simplicity, as… CONTINUE READING
