AB - A preliminary iterative 3D meso-scale structural model of the femur was developed, in which bar and shell elements were used to represent trabecular and cortical bone respectively. The crosssectionalareas of the bar elements and the thickness values of the shell elements were adjustedover successive iterations of the model based on a target strain stimulus, resulting in an optimised construct. The predicted trabecular architecture, and cortical thickness distribution showed good agreement with clinical observations, based on the application of a single leg stance load caseduring gait. The benefit of using a meso-scale structural approach in comparison to micro ormacro-scale continuum approaches to predictive bone modelling was achievement of thesymbiotic goals of computational efficiency and structural description of the femur.
