In the present paper a model for the resorption of bone, such as that observed at the interface between surgical implants and bone tissue, is developed. While there are many previous studies where models for bone remodelling calculations are proposed, these have been based on the stress or strain state of the bone tissue itself as the driving force for bone remodelling. We, instead, develop a constitutive model based on observations in recent experiments where it seems that fluid pressure, or possibly fluid flow velocity, is a major factor in the bone resorption process.
