Multiscale modeling of bone fracture using cohesive finite elements

Bone is a hierarchical material that exhibit fracture mechanisms at multiple scales and will benefit from a multiscale evaluation approach for better fracture risk assessment. This study developed a cohesive finite element modeling approach that simulated bone fracture at micro- and macroscale. Simu...
