Deformation of press-fitted metallic resurfacing cups. Part 2: Finite element simulation

A. Yew, Zhongmin Jin, A. Donn, Michael Morlock & Graham H. Isaac
The deformation of metallic acetabular cups employed for metal-on-metal hip resurfacing procedures was considered theoretically using the finite element method in the present study, following on the experimental investigation reported in Part 1. Three representative cups, characterized by the cup wall thickness as thin, intermediate, and thick, were considered. For the intermediate cup, the effects of both the size and the diametral interference on the cup deformation were investigated. Both two-dimensional axisymmetric and three-dimensional finite...
