Abstract
The intrinsic permeability is an important parameter that describes the resistance of a porous structure to fluid flo w. It has a key role in poroelastic finite element models of spinal segments, especially at the vertebral endplate, i.e. the interface between intervertebral disc and vertebra. In the understanding of the properties of the complex endplate system, an expli cit evaluation for permeability of subchondral bone is missing. Thus, a new method wa s proposed to evaluate the intrinsic pe...
