The meshing problem is to take the vertex and connectivity data of the polygon file and create appropriate plate elements. The method that was adopted after trying several different approaches is as follows. The connectivity data is discarded and only the vertex data is examined. This data set is a field of approximately half a million three-dimensional points that represent the inner and outer surfaces of the trochanter. 5. The points in this volume are sorted according to the coordinate normal to the surfaces.

2 The Algor FEA System The Algor analysis software (Pittsburgh, PA) includes a complete set of tools for finite element analysis. Model development occurs in the CAD program SuperDraw III. SuperDraw has facilities for three-dimensional feature line construction and advanced surface and solid mesh generation. These mesh generators are extremely important in modern FEA packages since they greatly simplify the 39 process of converting a solid CAD model to a FEA model. SuperDraw can also import models from a wide variety of other CAD programs such as Autodesk’s AutoCAD.

Consequently, isotropic material properties are a reasonable assumption when considering inplane loading. The composite structure of cuticle and its benefits are certainly an area for further research since relatively little is known about the individual properties of the cuticle components. 4 Confocal Microscopy Model In order to create a finite element model, an accurate, high resolution geometrical description of the trochanter is required. For the experiments, the metathoracic (rear) leg of the Periplaneta americana was used.
