This white paper was the product of discussions with the Working Group 6 - Tissue Mechanics (predecessor of Biomechanics Working Group) of IMAG to identify reporting parameters for finite element analysis studies in biomechanics with the intent to promote reproducibility, reusability, accountability, and sharing. It was inspired by standards development efforts of the Working Group 10 - Model Sharing and Standards. The concept was discussed as part of a webinar, Media:Virtual_Discussion_Reporting_in_FEA.pdf, and also as part of 2010 MSM Consortitum meeting, Media:WP4-AE-MSM-2010.pdf. The document was first developed at this page, later moved to Reporting in FEA/JB Edition. Following submission to Journal of Biomechanics, Reporting in FEA/JB Edition was kept as a pre-print version, and this page was converted into a discussion platform for the manuscript. In-press version of the document can be accessed at http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jbiomech.2011.11.038.
General Comments & Questions
Send comments & questions to Ahmet Erdemir, firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Can this document be used to rate modeling studies?
- Is it possible to establish standards for model sharing in FEA?
- ErdemirA 12:45, 15 January 2012 (EST) For the specific case in biomechanics, and with community support, it may be possible. An interesting document in regards to standards for models and simulations (for general case) is by NASA (NAS-STD-7009). It can be reached at https://standards.nasa.gov/documents/detail/3315599.
- How can these reporting parameters promote reproducibility?
