    Abstract It is a well-known fact that computational biomechanics and mechanobiology have deserved great attention by the numerical-methods community. Many efforts and works can be found in technical literature. This work deals with the modeling of nutrients and their effects on the behavior of intervertebral discs. The numerical modeling was carried out using the Boundary ELement Method (BEM) and an axisymmetric model of the disc. Concentration and production of lactate and oxygen are modeled with the BEM. Results agree well enough with those obtained using finite elements. The numerical efforts in the domain and boundary discretizations are minimized using the BEM.… More >
