Abstract

Tissues' nearly incompressibility was well reported in the literature but little effort has been made to compare volume variations computed by simulations with in vivo measurements. In this study, volume changes of the fat pad during controlled indentations of the human heel region were estimated from segmented medical images using digital volume correlation. The experiment was reproduced using finite element modelling with several values of Poisson’s ratio for the fat pad, from 0.4500 to 0.4999. A single value of Poisson’s ratio could not fit all the indentation cases. Estimated volume changes were between 0.9% − 11.7%.
