Bone remodeling is widely viewed as a dynamic process—maintaining bone structure through a balance between the opposed activities of osteoblast and osteoclast cells—in which the stability problem is often pointed out. By an analytical approach, we present a bone remodeling model applied to unit-elements in order to analyze the stationary states and the condition of their stability. In addition, this theory has been simulated in a computer model using the Finite Element Method (FEM) to show a relationship between the bone remodeling process and the stability analysis.
