A parallel framework for the FE-based simulation of knee joint motion.
IEEE Trans Biomed Eng. 2004 Aug; 51(8):1490-4.IT

Abstract

We present an object-oriented framework for the finite-element (FE)-based simulation of the human knee joint motion. The FE model of the knee joint is acquired from the patients in vivo by using magnetic resonance imaging. The MRI images are converted into a three-dimensional model and finally an all-hexahedral mesh for the FE analysis is generated. The simulation environment uses nonlinear finite-element analysis (FEA) and is capable of handling contact of the model to handle the complex rolling/sliding motion of the knee joint. The software strictly follows object-oriented concepts of software engineering in order to guarantee maximum extensibility and maintainability. The final goal of this work-in-progress is the creation of a computer-based biomechanical model of the knee joint which can be used in a variety of applications, ranging from prosthesis design and treatment planning (e.g., optimal reconstruction of ruptured ligaments) over surgical simulation to impact computations in crashworthiness simulations.
