Computational modeling is an important technique to better understand bone mechanical properties and the relationship between bone structure and its mechanical, as well as its biological, environment. The chapter first introduces three distinct computational modeling examples for different bone mechanical properties: subject-specific, image-based nonlinear finite element modeling of proximal femur; trabecular bone yield behaviors at the tissue level; and dynamic mechanical behaviors of trabecular bone for intertrochanteric fracture fixation. The chapter then describes computational simulations of bone remodeling and adaptation of trabecular bone to mechanical and biological factors.
