A numerical optimization procedure has been applied for the shape optimal design of a femoral head surface replacement. The failure modes of the prosthesis that were considered in the formulation of the objective functions concerned the interface stress magnitude and the bone remodelling activity beneath the implant. In order to find a compromising solution between different requirements demanded by the two objective functions, a two step optimization procedure has been developed. Through step… CONTINUE READING
