Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The outline of the novel multiscale biomechanics simulation is described, which bridges nanoscale, microscale and macroscale by considering both the three-dimensional network architecture of trabecular bone captured by means of micro-CT and the biological apatite crystallite orientation. The article covers the fundamentals of the stress analysis and the muliscale computational method including some important topics in the engineering field. And finally, the simulation of trabecular bone of human vertebra is presented.
