  • poroelastic material properties of cartilage

    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
