Responsible: Prof. Dr. Rafael Yagüe Ballester Finite element analysis was initially developed to solve strictly mechanical problems, but was quickly applied to health care, being today an important tool for biomechanical studies applied to dentistry. The Finite Element Laboratory of the Department of Biomaterials and Oral Biology presents a proposal for transdisciplinarity, in which the boundary between knowledge of the exact sciences and the biological sciences no longer exists. Thus, both mechanical and programming knowledge, clinical experience and other dental knowledge are valued for the construction of computational models and for the correct interpretation of their results. A main objective of the group is to produce cutting-edge knowledge in the field of biomechanics applied to dentistry, disseminated mainly in the form of articles in journals with selective editorial policy.
