Dear Members,

We are working on developing a finite element model of the humerus for
patients of Osteogenesis Imperfecta , so as to predict stress
concentration , depending upon the deformity. We are looking for a
standard anatomical ( cadaveric / radiologic ) model of the humerus to
begin with , that is acceptable to the Biomechanical fraternity.

I would like to request your opinion on Standard models of the Humerus
available , and accepted methods which can be used to create a finite
element model of the Humerus .

Thanks and Regards,
Prateek
