To avoid this problem, the following approach works with isotropic material properties in the elemental xy plane.
The great advantage of femur bone an as composite is that it can be so arranged that in at least one direction the material is much stronger and stiffer than isotropic material of same composition.
2002b) performed FEA of full-size SSL under torsion using isotropic material properties and revealed that uniform shear stress occurs within the shear span, which begins and ends at a distance of approximately two times the depth plus the grip distance away from each end of the specimen.
