Data for the paper: "Patient-specific finite element models of posterior pedicle screw fixation: effect of screw's size and geometry"
-) the results of the paper are reported in "Results_file.xlsx". In this file, there are different sheets:
.NumElements_CompTime - this contains the number of elements and computational time to solve the FE models, reported in Table 2 and 3;
.MeshConvergenceStudy - this contains the results of the Mesh convergence study reported in Figure 3.
.Sensitivity Deflection - Stress AND Sensitivity Strain - these contain the results of the sensitivity analysis reported in Table 4, 5 and 6;
.Correlation - this contains the results of the correlation analysis reported in Figure 6;
-) In the "Frequency_plot_files" folder, the result files for the frequency plots reported in Figure 7 are reported:
.MinStrainMeshPoints(...).txt - these files contains the values of minimum principal strain used in the frequency plots in Figure 7.
-) The "Example_Model" folder contains an example of the models used in the sensitivity analysis for Patient #3 with simplified pedicle screw with diamter D6.5mm and length L45mm
The folder contains:
- the Ansys workbench 2020R2 project file corresponding to the model in the name of the folder;
- the corresponding geometry SpaceClaim file;
- the Ansys cdb mesh file exported from Bonemat;
- the calibration xml file used in Bonemat;
- the Ansys apdl command snippet used in Mechanical to build an heterogeneous model of the bone.
