Description of the research topic:

In neurosurgical practice, the cranial bone is often partly removed due to accident or to give access to internal problems in the crane. After the partial recovery of the patient, the missing bone part has to be restored. The restoration is mainly realized with implants made with CAD/CAM methods. The fixation of the implants and the cooperation of the crane and the implant during the growth of the cranial bone are interesting domains for research.

Goal of the research:
Defining implant shape that allows changing of the dimensions while keeping the curvature.

Work to be done:
Survey of the scientific literature: 1 year
Numerical model building: 1,5 year
Simulations, study and discussion of the results 1 year
Writing the thesis: 0,5 year

Expected scientific results:
Methods for realizing shape that follows the growth.

Required language skills: English
Further requirements: 
- good knowledge of spatial geometry and matrix algebra
- good knowledge of 3D CAD systems
- good knowledge of finite element softwares
- good programming skills (Matlab, C#…)

Number of students who can be accepted: 1
