Interface micromechanics of transverse sections from retrieved cemented hip reconstructions: an experimental and finite element comparison


In finite element analysis (FEA) models of cemented hip reconstructions, it is crucial to include the cement-bone interface mechanics. Recently, a micromechanical cohesive model was generated which reproduces the behavior of the cement-bone interface. The goal was to investigate whether this cohesive model was directly applicable on a macro level. From… (More)
