Direct assessment of bone competence in vivo is not possible, hence, it is inevitable to predict it using appropriate simulation techniques. Although accurate estimates of bone competence can be obtained from micro-finite element models (muFE), it is at the expense of large computer efforts. In this study, we investigated the application of structural idealizations to represent individual trabeculae by single elements. The objective was to implement and validate this technique. We scanned 42… CONTINUE READING
