White paper presents methods applicable to biomechanics of an ACL reconstructed knee
White paper — finite element analysis
Simulia has published a white paper presenting the numerical methods applicable to the tibia bone and soft tissue biomechanics of an ACL reconstructed knee.
The paper has been written to help researchers achieve a better understanding of the mechanics of an ACL reconstructed knee.
The paper describes the methodology applied in the development of an anatomically detailed three-dimensional ACL reconstructed knee model for finite element analysis from medical image data obtained from a CT scan.
