    Abstract

    Prediction of periprosthetic failure may be improved by an improved model of bone elasticity which includes microstructural information. Micropolar theory facilitates such information to be included in a continuum model. We assessed the extent of bone’s micropolar behaviour in bending both numerically and experimentally. The numerical model was consistent with micropolar behaviour, and experimental results exhibited size effects that may have been confounded by surface roughness effects, as predicted numerically.
