Pressure distribution along the contact surface of an articulating joint model was analyzed using different numerical and analytical methods: a discrete rigid element method [rigid-body-spring-model (RBSM)], the finite element method (FEM), a simplified elasticity solution (SES) and the modified Hertzian (MH) theory. The FEM and MH methods modeled joints interposed with elastic layers, while the RBSM and SES methods assumed a simplified joint with a rigid convex indenter on an elastic concave… CONTINUE READING
