    SUBJECT:Viscoplasticity of cancellous bone

    Dear BIOMCH-Ls
    Help a neophite of biomech-l what I am.
    What I'm trying to understand is the consequence
    of viscous or viscoplastic or damage behavior of
    cancellous bone (and of cortical bone).
    Might this kind of behavior affect the design of
    hip joint stem prosthesis?
    Changing in stress pattern and magnitude (caused
    by prosthesis or other), might viscosity and/or damage
    play an important role (in remodelling also)?
    Why there are so few papers about this subject?
    I'm looking for an explanation of this my doubt
    and some papers on experimental investigation
    and/or mathematical modelling.
    Thank you all very much.
