View Full Version : ISB Mesh repository: lumbar spine model available

06-02-1998, 03:00 AM
Theo Smit from the University Hospital Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam, The
Netherlands had made available via the ISB Finite element Meshes repository
an FE mesh of a lumbar spine segment. It is based on the CT-scans of a
44-years old L4
vertebra, to which the neighbouring vertebrae as well as the intervertebral
discs have been added. It is quite detailed, as it is hand-made using brick
elements. It includes all ligaments.

Thanks a lot, Theo.

Tiger! Tiger! Burning bright in the forest of the night,
what immortal hand or eye could frame thy fearful symmetry?
