Streaming Potential Induced by Canaliculi Fluid Flow: A Fluid-Filled Thick-Walled Cylinder Osteon Model Subjected to Axial Loading
Based on the physiological structure of osteon, a single fluid-filled osteon model under only time-dependent axial loading is modeled for calculating the streaming potential induced by canaliculi fluid flow. Solid matrix is modeled as an elastic transverse isotropic thick-walled cylinder and fluid phase is considered as an incompressible Newtonian fluid. Close-form solution of the streaming potential for a single osteon model was obtained and used to study the electromechanical properties on intraosseous pressure and potential distribution. The solution can also be used as a benchmark for numerical studies of other osteon models.
