Highly nonlinear finite element (FE) model of trabecular bone, using its actual complex micro-scale geometry imaged with micro-computed tomography (micro-CT), was used to study the apparent trabecular bone mechanical behavior and compared with experimental data. Sensitivity of the apparent-level response to different plasticity constitutive models and their material parameters at the tissue-level was investigated. This study can provide inputs for multiscale computational models of whole bone and provide insights on bone’s susceptibility to deformation and fracture.
