Modeling of cancellous bone surface adaptation based on the 3-dimensional trabeculae topology evolution
Such approach allows to mimic in details the real biological process of bone formation and resorption. The model including the 3-dimensional trabeculae topology is simpler and closer to the real trabecular bone properties. The complex mesh control during the simulation eliminate the difficulties with the Finite Element Method computations. The possibility of use of the system in mechanical design is discussed. Some results of computations are presented.
