Study of Contact Parameters in Metal-on-plastic Hip Endoprothesis with a New Analytical Method of Contact Mechanics

The author presents a computational approach for estimating contact characteristics (i.e., maximum contact pressures, angle, and diameter of contact) in thermo-diffusion nitrided (TDN) Grade 2 and ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene hip prostheses (UHMWPE). The impact of hip joint stress, prosthesis
