Failure analysis of HIP Prosthesis
No Thumbnail Available
The present thesis deals with the study of failure analysis of total hip prosthesis . A complete 3D finite element model has been developed for assessing the failure of hip prosthesis. fatigue life of the prosthesis has been determined using 3D finite element analysis along with residual strength degradation model. A methodology for determination of fatigue constants in residual strength degradation model has been proposed for fatigue life calculation of hip prosthesis.
