The main stress features in a hip joint replacement are studied photoelastically. In particular, the load transfer mechanism and the outcome of pressure peaks are examined and interpreted. An improved solution which permits a reduction of the stress level to be achieved is also investigated photoelastically. Some joint design directives are included.

Abstract

The main stress features in a hip joint replacement are studied photoelastically. In particular, the load transfer mechanism and the outcome of pressure peaks are examined and interpreted. An improved solution which permits a reduction of the stress level to be achieved is also investigated photoelastically. Some joint design directives are included.
