Finite element analysis (FEA), a computer-based method for solving complex structural problems, was used to determine the wall stress distribution in three cases of model infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms representing common problems in determining risk of aneurysm rupture. The point of maximum circumferential wall stress in a spherical model aneurysm was located near the junction of the aneurysm and the nondilated aorta, while maximum longitudinal wall stress was located at the point of… CONTINUE READING
