This work describes the numerical modelling of an immobilization system currently used to repair long bone fractures. The referred system was employed to ensure the mechanical stabilization of an oblique bone fracture by means of a dynamic compression plate (DCP) and bicortical screws. The numerical characterization of the fixation system was performed to obtain stress and strain fields in cortical bone tissue. The validation of the numerical model was performed using experimental datadoi:10.6084/m9.figshare.14113535.v1 fatcat:bqvm4jdgxbh5jiygqq7v3mcvq4
