Abstract

In human body, bones support our skin, muscle, tissues and all the organs inside. It gives our body the frame to sustain the body structure. Bones are non-rigid materials that can fracture if it undergoes heavy loading or a sudden impact. To study and understand how bones behave under different circumstances, Finite Element Analysis can be done to interpret real life situations through computer simulations. However, one of the key essential into getting accurate results is determining that the material used in the simulations is very similar characteristics to the real life bone material and the boundary conditions are set right. This report discusses on various material types used to model a bone as a non-rigid material and its validation to real life test results. Results from different published papers are analysed to find the apt material that could be used to depict a closely accurate simulation of a lower limb bone fracture to real life scenario. It also aims to help determine the boundary conditions that could be used to perform the simulations.
