This book consists of four main parts: bone, soft tissues, joints, and implants. Each part starts with the structure and function of the biology and then follows the corresponding finite element advanced features like anisotropic nonlinear material, multidimensional interpolation, XFEM, fiber enhancement, UserHyper, porous media, wear, and crack growth fatigue analysis. The final section presents some specific biomedical problems, such as abdominal aortic aneurysm, intervertebral disc, head impact, knee contact,
and SMA cardiovascular stent. All modeling files are attached in the appendixes of the book.
