  • The total surface stress measured in vitro on acetabular cartilage when step-loaded by an instrumented hemiprosthesis are partitioned into fluid and cartilage network stresses using a finite element model of the cartilage layer and measurements of the layer consolidation. The finite element model is based on in situ measurements of cartilage geometry and constitutive properties. Unique instrumentation was employed to collect the geometry and constitutive properties and pressure and… CONTINUE READING
