BoneFEA is a finite element code for simulation of human bone, written as the result of a consulting project for ON Diagnostics together with Panos Papadopolous. From finite element models derived from CT scan data, BoneFEA predicts how a patients’ bones might fail under loading conditions. BoneFEA serves as a replacement for the ABAQUS software previously used by ON Diagnostics, but with several unusual material models, such as models for plasticity with anisotropic yield surfaces, and application-specific solvers. I wrote the software itself (about 12000 lines of C++ and 1400 lines of support scripts), and also designed a geometric multigrid solver used in the system.
