RESULTS & DISCUSSION


Results of FEA can be depicted visually as color maps illustrating the magnitudes of stress and strain at each element in the model. Below are several figures that depict the three different strains discussed above on the surface of the two models in various views. Figure 1 shows A) minimum principal/compressive strain, B) maximum principal/tensile strain, and C) von Mises strain on a Eulemur fulvus skull with the postorbital bar intact. Figure 2 shows A) minimum principal/compressive strain, B) maximum principal/tensile strain, and C) von Mises strain on a Eulemur fulvus skull without the postorbital bar present.
