Paper Abstract

Dynamic simulation of the biomechanical system consisting of the human tibia bone and external holding structure as the Ilisarov apparatus is considered. The finite element method implemented as the program code MechanicsFE3D_VEO on the basis of 20-nodal isoparametric elements is utilized. The numerical vibration analysis has allowed defining both the lowest resonance frequencies and forms of oscillations and amplitude-frequency characteristics of the system in the various points on the surface of the bone and holder. The obtained results can be used as theoretical fundament to developing resonance methods for physiological state diagnostics of the regenerating osseous tissue in fracture zone.
