Comparative study of two different types of human mandible boundary conditions used in finite element calculations
The aim of the presented work is to compare two different ways of prescribing muscles and chewing force boundary condition. Based on liturature, the first variant of boundary condition considers muscle forces and their direction . The second variant of boundary condition considers muscles modeled as finite elements connecting lower jaw and skull together. Models of living tissues were created on base of CT images and modeled in 3D CAD software SolidWorks. Calculations were computed in the finite element software ANSYS.
