Dear Biomch-L subscribers,

We propose to use biphasical model to simulate articular cartilage under
compression. For a better approach, only viscoelastic material properties
for soft tissue can I use in our existing FEA software, ANSYS 5.7. Have
anyone had experience using ANSYS to simulate poroelastic material
properties in soft tissue?

Are there other commercial FEA package that have a phphasic ability to
simulate soft tissue? I heard that Abaqus and Marc finite element softwares
may be good choices. Can anyone share your experience about it?

Thanks for your help and input
