%X In the predecessor to this work, we undertook a derivation of the time-harmonic, acoustic equations, idealizing the bone as a periodic arrangement of a Kelvin-Voigt viscoelastic porous matrix containing a viscous fluid, where we assumed that the fluid was slightly compressible. The effective equations for the monophasic vibrations were obtained, and existence and uniqueness was proved. In the current article, we perform numerical experiments, assuming that the trabeculae are isotropic.
