Paper Title:
Simulation of a Strategy for the Assessment of Damage in Human Bones by Using FEM and Signal Processing
  Abstract

The aim of this work is to propose a non-invasive technique aimed at assessing the evolution of damage in elongated bones that could be caused, for instance, by metabolic diseases. The technique exploits signals related to mechanical guided waves traveling along the bone to characterize its mechanical properties in a total non-destructive manner. Such properties can be used as an indicator of the damage level present in the bone. The preliminary results motivate future studies
