An FE approach to limiting peri-prosthetic bone resorption

An FE approach to limiting peri-implant bone resorption

In the fall 2012 semester I took a course in analytical biomechanics.  The capstone project for the course was to develop and conduct an FE model of a failed implant to attempt to explain the implant’s failure.  Though I would have preferred to use the opportunity to gain experience in Ansys, Abaqus, or Nastran we …
