Bone Formation Based on the Turing Model under Compressed Loading Condition


Article Preview

In this paper, the iBone (Imitation Bone) model which is coupled with Turing reaction-diffusion system and FEM, is used. The numerical simulation of bone forming process by considering the osteoclasts and osteoblasts process are conducted. The results shown, that the bone mass is increased with increase of the initial load value, then fibula and femur bones are obtained respectively by keeping the required bone forming value. The different bone shapes are obtained by changing the both bone keeping value and the compressing force value. When set larger bone keeping value by keeping larger constant compressing force value, bone shape as a pipe with hole just like femur, when set smaller bone keeping value by keeping the smaller constant compressing force value, it is close to solid pillar as like fibula.
