I would like to simulate a synovial joint behavior or TMJ (Temporo-Mandibular Joint); TMJ is one of the most complex joins of body, because her motion is composed by a combination of rotations and translations.
This joint is composed by a viscoelastic disc placed between two bone surfaces (condylar of jaw and temporal fosse), figure 1 show different components of TMJ. Disc is guided between articular surfaces due to jaw motion, thus disc don’t have a fixed position. Articular disc is attached through ligaments (between disc and condylar jaw and between disc and temporal fosse, Figure 2-TMJ_Ligaments), this network of ligaments maintain stability of joint.
I saw in tutorial as is possible to define a joint through a force definition, but I don’t know how define it in this case?
Thanks in advance, Diego
