a Healing pattern at different days during the healing process. The days are selected to show the onset of cartilaginous callus (CC), bony bridging (BB) and bony callus (BC) formation in models with different interfragmentary half gap sizes, h. b Effect of interfragmentary half gap sizes on the healing duration (i.e., No. of days) associated with the onset of cartilaginous callus, bony bridging, and bony callus formation. In this set of simulations, D = 0.5 mm2/day, Eg = 1 MPa, and d = 4 mm
