Paper Abstract

This paper describes experimental procedures with a goat cadaveric skull aiming the identification of patterns during the chewing process, simulated with two plasticines having different textures. Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBG) are used to monitor the biomechanical forces related to the chewing process, whereas the obtained signals were processed by neural networks, in order to classify and recognize the presence of different plasticines in the chewing process.
