Bone drilling is widely used to mount screws for anchoring plates and attaching exoskeleton devices to assist healing of bone fractures. The heat generated during drilling can cause significant thermal damage to the bone tissue. Hence, prediction of the developing temperature field as a function of the drilling parameters is of an important clinical value.
