Finite element analysis (FEA) is being applied to more and more complex situations such as biomedical research. As with any FEA, the key to a successful analysis lies in the validation of the model with real life measurements. Dantec Dynamics’ unique Q-100 sensor provides measurement data in the form of 3D displacements and surface strains to validate even the most complex models and materials.
In a recent paper published by the Journal of Biomechanics, research is presented on the use of a Dantec Q-100 ESPI sensor to validate a model of human bone. The paper titled ‘Validating a voxel-based finite element model of a human mandible using digital speckle pattern interferometry’ is by Flora Groening of the Hull York Medical School. Consistent and reliable measurements were made with the Q-100 confirming the use of this technique for the validation of models in the field of bone mechanics.
