Abstract

The objective of this work was to determine bone loading conditions that, when applied to a finite element model, would best reproduce the in vivo strain field as measured by surface-mounted strain rosettes. The present study adopts the basic mathematical approach to load reconstruction introduced by Weinans and Blankevoort (J. Biomech. 28 (1995) 739) who determined the relationship between applied loads and bone strain distribution using ex vivo calibration testing. Our method eliminates the need for subsequent ex vivo calibration tests by instead substituting a computational calibration procedure. This first application of the method is with in vivo strains on the canine forelimb during gait (Coleman et al., J. Biomech. 35 (2002) 1677), but with further refinements the method could be used to reconstruct the in vivo loading conditions in living subjects.
