The human pelvis frequently sustains injury or bone
fractures due to automobile accidents, presence of
bone metastases and osteoporosis. In recent decades,
finite element (FE) method has been used a powerful
tool in study of pelvic biomechanics. Previous FE
models of the pelvis contain only bony structure, the
articular joints like pubic symphysis, however, are
often simplified or not modeled. Accurate
representation of pelvic biomechanics necessitates
use of biofidelic pelvis models. This book introduces
methods to develop and validate advanced pelvic
models from medical image data containing both bone
and soft tissues. The FE models are then used to
study deformation characteristics of the pubic
symphysis, pelvic bone stresses, and injury
mechanisms under side impacts; and to investigate how
the presence of periacetabular defects and subsequent
cement filling affect pelvic bone stresses and hip
contact pressure in single stance loads. The
methodologies used in this book may help biomechanics
researcher and automobile safety engineer in
development of advanced human body model to better
understand the injury mechanism and tolerances under
various loading conditions.
