Computational modeling and simulation (M&S) in biomechanics is extending its reach from research environments towards translational applications. In particular to the knee joint, finite element (FE) analysis has significant utility to understand joint and tissue function, explore pathological conditions and injury mechanisms, and investigate surgical interventions and implant performance [1]. Unfortunately, while FE models of joints, in particular of the knee, are ubiquitous in literature [1], they are not necessarily available publicly for the community to reuse and further develop. In response, Open Knee project, for FE analysis of the tibiofemoral joint, was launched [2].
