Bearbeitung:

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Udo Nackenhorst, M.Sc. Andre Lutz

Kurzbeschreibung:

Due to the complex structure of bone it is very difficult to get geometry data for the generation of simulation models. In addition it is impossible to get patient-specific geometry data for patient-specific treatment. With this program it is possible to extract geometry data from CT datasets and generate finite element models. Furthermore it is possible to map bone density information on the created finite element model for the purpose of calculating statically equivalent load sets.

Bearbeitung:

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Udo Nackenhorst, Dipl.-Ing.(FH) Dieter Kardas

Förderung durch:

This work is supported by the Research training group 615 of the DFG (German Research Foundation)

Kurzbeschreibung:

Inside the cortical section of every bone, a remodelling cycle, including the resorption and build up of bone matrix, takes place. This phenomenon lasts for the life time. Research groups nowadays agree on the theory, that bone cells called osteocytes, lying inside the bone matrix, have the function as a sensor and are responsible for the remodelling behaviour – but still there is disagreement regarding to what is stimulating the cells.

Kurzbeschreibung:

Mechanical response of technical rubber is usually described by damage and hysteresis behaviour under quasi-static cyclic loading conditions, while dynamic stiffening and viscous effects are predominant for high frequency analysis. For the computation of rolling tire behaviour with questions regarding safety, comfort and sound radiation a constitutive description incorporating all of these effects is needed.
