Parametric Finite Element Models of Pregnancy – ASME J of Biomech Eng

Andrea’s first paper on calculating the effects of cervical geometry and cervical material properties on the mechanical loading of the cervical os has been published by the ASME Journal of Biomechanical Engineering. The paper is entitled, A Parameterized Ultrasound-Based Finite Element Analysis of the Mechanical Environment of Pregnancy, and the methodology takes advantage of ultrasound data of the maternal anatomy to build parametric models of the pregnant abdomen.
