THE STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS OF SOCKET INLAYS OF THE HIP ENDOPROSTHESIS
The paper presents results of the preliminary structural analysis of socket inlays model of the endoprosthesis of the hip joint. Basics of anatomy and biomechanical analysis of the hip joint were introduced. The prototype of socket inlay of the hip endoprosthesis was modeled using Solid Edge ST8 software. After determining physical properties of structural materials for socket inlays, the Finite Elements Analysis of the model was conducted using SolidWorks software under various load conditions. Finally the results of analysis were presented.
