A mesh-free numerical method for the estimation of the torsional stiffness of long bones

Anita Uscilowska and Agnieszka Fraska

Vol. 7 (2012), No. 3, 265–276
Abstract

This paper considers the torsional stiffness of long bones. The phenomenon of long-bone twisting is a boundary value problem. We propose to solve the problem by a numerical procedure based on a mesh-free method, the method of fundamental solutions.

Keywords
method of fundamental solutions, mesh-free method, torsional stiffness, long bone
