Table 3 Interactions and boundary conditions elected for the present study

From: Effect of crown-to-implant ratio and crown height space on marginal bone stress: a finite element analysis

Friction coefficients Co-Cr with Ti gr IV (Prosthetic framework with implant platform) 0.15
Co-Cr with Ti gr V (Prosthetic framework with screw’s head) 0.15
Ti gr V with Ti gr IV (Screw’s body with inner implant platform) 0.43
Tie constrain Screw’s body with inner implant body (simulating the threaded connection)
Merge Outer implant’s surface with cortical and trabecular bone (simulating osteointegration)
Encastre As boundary condition on the lower face of the bone (preventing rotations and/or displacements)
