Using COMSOL Multiphysics for Modeling of Musculoskeletal Biomechanics

R. L. Spilker
Department of Biomedical Engineering, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, New York, USA

In this presentation, we study the modeling of physiology and muscoskeletal biomechanics using COMSOL. The outline for the presentation is in particular:

  • Why is COMSOL particularly powerful for modeling physiology?
  • Modeling soft tissues like cartilage
  • Optimization to determine soft tissue properties
  • Modeling of moving loads in the TMJ
  • Robust 3D models from imaging data
  • Model of primary lymphatic system
