The elastohydrodynamic lubrication analysis was carried out in this study for a typical metal-on-metal hip-resurfacing prosthesis under a simple steady-state rotation. Both the Reynolds equation and the elasticity equation were coupled and solved numerically by the finite difference method. The finite element method was used to determine the elastic deformation of both the femoral and the acetabular components required for the lubrication analysis. The effect of the radial clearance between the… CONTINUE READING
