Research project: Multi-parameter computational and experimental investigations into the robustness of cementless total hip replacements

Currently Active: 

Traditional computational and experimental assessments of implant performance were deterministic, describing a single possible situation. In the present work, stochastic computational models were employed to assess the effect of multiple variables on the performance of cementless hip replacement.

Moreover, to verify these computational predictions, at each stage in the project a number of selected scenarios were tested experimentally for validation. Mesh morphing and automated implantation tools were used and refined for the computational studies using Finite element methods, whilst novel digital image correlation (DIC) methods were used for the experimental testing, to verify the full strain-field of the sawbone femurs under test.
