Computational Modelling of Forces Acting on the Femur Bone: Stress Analysis in CFD Modules with Parallel Processing
The increasing incidence of bone fractures in the elderly or injured is considered to be a surgical challenge for exerts. Following an experience of force applied to the femur bone surface triggered by an external force at the level of bone articulation, increasing the risk of fracture following the modification of biomechanics. Using the analysis by dynamic computational fluid (CFD), this study aims to analyze the evolution of the proximal femur biomechanics in such cases and to extract parameters such as strain and stress measurements which can predict the probability of fracture within the femur bone and to simulate stress measurement in the bone and study their impact in the case of external force exerted with successive values 10N, 50N and 100N. A 3D femur bone models are constructed by configuring material and boundary conditions and respecting patients’ specific features, providing realistic and performant structural analysis. This study describes a 3D construction process as well as the generation of the mesh based on a parallel processing of eight processors.
