In this paper, we propose a model for the description of bone mechanics and bone remodeling processes, including bone cell populations dynamics. The latter, described by a system of ODEs, influences the values for the elastic parameters used in the mechanical model, which in turn determines the “stimulus” function affecting the behavior of the cells. Numerical simulations concerning the behavior of the bone under external loads, as well as simple fracture healing processes are presented. The model can reproduce the qualitative behavior of bone tissue remodeling and mechanical response.

Abstract

In this paper, we propose a model for the description of bone mechanics and bone remodeling processes, including bone cell populations dynamics. The latter, described by a system of ODEs, influences the values for the elastic parameters used in the mechanical model, which in turn determines the “stimulus” function affecting the behavior of the cells. Numerical simulations concerning the behavior of the bone under external loads, as well as simple fracture healing processes are presented. The model can reproduce the qualitative behavior of bone tissue remodeling and mechanical response.
