Pelvic stress.


Biomechanics testing simulated stress concentrations in the acetabulum resulting from a blow to the right trochanter, as commonly occurs in recreational and passenger contexts. Developing tolerance criteria for the pelvis is addressed in this paper in terms of the load distribution and energy transmission to the pelvis via both soft tissues and the femur, the instability of the femur-pelvis complex, and the difficulty of predicting stress using simple, experimentally derived, parameters.
