Good Afternoon, I am trying to simulate a 3D model in ANSYS workbench. The model is a Tibia bone with a fracture and i am using 2 fixer e 12 screw. First, I got the mechanical properties of the bodies (screw, fixer and tibia).
Bone- Using a orthotropic material
Screw and fixer- material from ansys library
Before that using the mechanical i select the contact , for two situation (frictional- bone/bone – 0,4)
(frictional – bone/steel- 0,6)
I applyed two forces and fixed support in the bottom,
I have a similar study where the difference is the type of fracture and the deformation is around 2mm in the bone.
I would like know how can i do a ligament between tibia and fibula to restrict the movement and represent the variation of Young’s Modulus (Tibia)
