Bone tissue would not live without these fluid movements. There are two purposes of this contribution. The first is to provide a description of blood flow and interstitial fluid flow in living bone tissue. The second is to advocate the development of an interactive, dynamically graphical, computational model of blood and interstitial flow in living bone tissue. Such a model will have many significant clinical, research and educational applications. These applications will be discussed. 1 Introduction Blood and interstitial fluid have many functions in bone.

2 Simulation of a Gait Cycle in a Knee Wear Simulator The initial explicit FE studies [ 17-21] were aimed at replicating the mechanical environment within the Stanmore knee simulator in order simulate a gait cycle [14]. The femoral component was modelled as rigid body using four-noded shell elements. The polyethylene was modelled as a deformable continuum assuming elastic-plastic material behaviour and meshed using continuum hexahedral elements (Fig. 1). The boundary conditions applied to the model were aimed at reproducing the mechanical environment existing in the Stanmore knee simulator [ 141.

Hence, in order to verify model-predicted patellar motion the experimental tibio-femoral motion and quad load were used as inputs to the TKR model, and predicted patellar kinematics were compared to experimental data. Boundary conditions were applied to reproduce the Purdue knee simulator environment. Measured tibial flexion-extension and internal-external rotations, anterior-posterior and medial-lateral translations, and vertical and quadriceps loading were applied to the model. In order to simulate the changing orientation, the applied quadriceps load is coupled to the flexion-extension angle as occurs in the experimental simulator.
