Internal bone remodeling of inhomogeneous materials is studied both theoretically and numerically in this paper. Two solutions are presented for analyzing thermoelectroelastic problems of internal bone remodeling subjected to coupled axial force, external lateral pressure, electric and thermal loads. Though all bone is heterogeneous, assumption of homogeneity is made to entail a smoothing over features such as osteons, lamellae, fibers, and other structural elements, so that a continuum...[Show more]
