"The non-destructive quality control of a wide variety of high-added value products, produced by innovative manufacturing techniques, remains a challenge. Examples include additive manufacturing parts, micro parts, and fibre reinforced composite parts. Common to these workpieces is the dependency of their performance on internal and inaccessible elements. Nevertheless, customers in multiple sector ...

Patient-specific predictions for bone treatments (CAD-BONE)

Start date: Jan 1, 2012, End date: Dec 31, 2015,

CAD-BONE addresses a multidisciplinary research that will transform current technology by radically improving the development of patient-specific computer models for the modelling of bone remodelling/healing to predict short and long-term bone response after surgical interventions. Specifically, CAD-BONE will combine image processing, musculoskeletal modelling tools, finite element analyses and bo ...
