Figure 3 : The validation study.

(A) The mesh model by Ohayon et al., (B) The mesh model in the current study, (C) The stress distribution and the peak cap stress (PCS) obtained by Ohayon et al., [23], and (D) The stress distribution and the peak cap stress obtained in the current study. For the current model, the PCS is 378 kPa which is 2 kPa larger than the computed PCS in that study. This small discrepancy may be because of the differences in the mesh models.
