Edinburgh Computational Biomechanics
As one of the leading international groups in the area of simulating nonlinear mechanical behaviour of bone, we undertake computational research supported by experiments on bone and bone-implant systems. The aim of our group is to use principles of mechanics to answer real clinical questions.

Twenty (n=20) untreated bovine trabecular bone cylindrical samples (without any chemical treatment) were scanned by suing uCT at high resolution (17.22 µm), before mechanical tests. The bone volume ratio (BV/TV) ranged ...
Characterisation of mechanical behaviour of demineralised and deproteinised trabecular bone samples Nineteen (n=19) bovine trabecular bone samples were scanned before chemical treatment by using Skyscan at high resolution (17.22 µm). The chemical treatment was to either demineralise or deproteinise the samples. Thirteen ...
