Numerical And Experimental Stress Analyses Of Bovine Femur For Determining The Mechanical Properties Of Calcium-Phosphate Ceramic As An Artificial Bone Implant
Published 1992 · Materials Science
In the present work the stress distribution in a fresh cow femur is determined. The finite element method (FEM) is used for a three-dimensional model with 1500 degrees of freedom. Geometrical and material data are taken for this model from a cow femur. The same bone is used in the compression tests to determine mechanical properties and the results are compared with the calculations.
