Abstract

The major concern in the current bone cutting research is thermal necrosis of the bone tissue, which occurs when the bone temperature rises above a threshold value. In this study a thermo-mechanically coupled finite element model of the bovine cortical bone is presented. The effect of a cutting speed on the temperature rise in the bone material is analysed. Temperature values in a bone are calculated and compared for cutting conditions with and without cooling (irrigation).
