The screw-home mechanism and coupling between forces in cruciate ligaments during passive knee joint flexion were investigated for various boundary conditions, flexion axis alignments and posterior cruciate ligaments (PCL)/anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) conditions. A developed non-linear 3D finite element model was used to perform detailed elasto-static response analyses of the human tibiofemoral joint as a function of flexion angle varying from 10 degrees hyper-extension to 90 degrees… CONTINUE READING
