Our work presents the study of bone remodeling scheme in the general case of n unit-elements model. The analytical result for the stationary states presented here as original was obtained and a condition which is necessary for the stability of the remodeling theory was derived. Forward finite-difference time-stepping is used to verify the prediction of the analytical study. This numerical study appears to confirm the analytical results.
