Özet

The finite element method is an important tool used in the design of orthopedic prosthesis. One of the important orthopedic applications is hip prosthesis replacement. This operation is so complex that it requires close co-operation between engineers and surgeons. They have to work together in order to produce durable and reliable hip joint prosthesis. The reason for this is that the nature of bone strongly affects the design.
