Osteoporosis is a bone-related illness which causes a reduction in bone density, where affected individuals have a higher risk of fracture. This research uses current Finite Element Analysis (FEA) techniques such as geometric modelling, meshing, application of materials, loading and boundary conditions, and captures time-dependent simulation data. The aim was to study the physical properties of the Human Clavicle bone. The focus was on transverse fractures in compression loading. Previous research is detailed showing the impact of pathological fractures and its effect on the bone, this comprises of theoretical and experimental results. The study demonstrates the correlation between the reduction in density and the increase in fracture risk. Thus, showing the importance of the FEA data and its uses in future applications of which encompass design, diagnostics and research.
