  • Looking for FEA models of femur bones

    Dear BIOMECH-L members,

    I am working on an MS thesis in Mech. Engr. currently working on
    stress fractures on femur bones.

    I 'm looking for proximal femur bone models ready to import into
    Cosmos/m.(FEA program) The femur bones can be in all age groups , but the
    models need to have the cortical bone defined. A perfect model would be a
    proximal femur that could mesh the cortical layer and then be hollow to
    create a mesh of the trabecular region.
    Can anyone suggest any resources where I can find such a model? I'm
    primarily looking for an institution that has tomography equipment to produce
    such models. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time,
