Abstract

Potential replacement for the commercially used Titanium alloy femur bone implant is analysed by using Finite Element Analysis. The performance analysis is carried out by considering four materials by analysing their stress, strain and deformation characteristics. Day to day activities such as walking, standing, sitting, climbing up and climbing down the stairs are considered for load application parameters. Computer aided design configuration permits to make 3D model of the embed and ANSYS as a stage to dissect the change in mechanical practices under stacking conditions. ANSYS V18.1 is utilized to acquire consequences of hip embed made of two different materials at stem and acetabular cup. The information of results obtained for different bearing surfaces are contrasted with the current hip prosthesis which may help the medical practitioners in selecting the right choice of material combination. In this work, Ti+UHWPE, Si3Ni4+PMMA, Co-Cr+PMMA and ZTA+ZTA materials are compared with their stress, deformation analysis for daily activities like walking, standing, sitting, climbing stairs up and down as load conditions.
