Mathematical Models for Dental Materials Research

This book presents a mechanistic approach—mathematical modeling—for carrying out dental materials research. This approach allows researchers to go beyond the null hypothesis and obtain a solution that is more general and therefore predictive for conditions other than those considered in a study. Hence it can be used either on its own or to complement the commonly used statistical approach.
Through a series of practical problems with wide-ranging application, the reader will be guided on:

  • How to construct a mathematical model for the behavior of dental materials by making informed assumptions of the physical, chemical, or mechanical situation
  • How to simplify the model by making suitable simplifications
  • How to calibrate the model by calculating the values of key parameters using experimental results
  • How to refine the model when there are discrepancies between predictions and experiments
