Abstract

The ultimate stress and strain of human vertebral cancellous bone specimens have been calculated using non-linear finite element analysis. Three-dimensional models are made from subsections of the microCT images of mechanically tested 8 mm cubes. The results of the model calculations are then compared to the experimental stress-strain behavior of an 8 mm cubical bone specimen. It is therefore, possible to model the shape of the failure curves; further, encouraging progress is made in the prediction of ultimate stress and strain. The results indicate that this method is appropriate for predicting and understanding the failure and post-failure behavior of human cancellous bone.
