Finite element analysis of the real life loadings on the ti-27nb hip bone implant
Bone is an important part of all vertebrates. It support the body and homes the marrow. The bone may be damaged by number of reasons. The objective of this paper is to investigate the real life loading on the Ti-27Nb hip bone implant by using FEA. The model of the implant was generated using CREO PARAMETRIC software. Two weight categories 75Kg and 100 Kg with four different daily life activities stand up, sit down, knee bend and walking were considered in this study. The FEA analysis was performed using commercial FEA software ANSYS. The implant model was meshed using tetrahedral element type. The simulation result show that maximum stress occurs at the neck of the implant for each loading case. The stress level was approximately equal to the strength of Ti-27Nb in 100 Kg, stand up position case.
