I am attempting a Finite Element Model using the SDRC I-DEAS 9 Software of a
plated long-bone. I am having difficulties assembling the model and putting it
through a four-point bending test when there are two or more components to the
structure (i.e. the plate on the bone with screws as an attachment). I have
searched the SDRC I-DEAS help pages and contacted everyone I know that is
familiar with the software to no avail. I was wondering if anyone knows how to
use this program well and could possibly help me or even point me in the right

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance,
