Finite element (FE) models could be used for pre-clinical testing of cemented hip replacement implants against the damage accumulation failure scenario. To accurately predict mechanical failure, the models should accurately predict stresses and strains. This should be the case for various implants. In the current study, two FE models of composite hip reconstructions with two different implants were validated relative to experimental bone and cement strains. The objective was an overall… CONTINUE READING
