    Abstract

    For simple constructions a mechanical analysis to determine internal stresses and deformation is possible using theoretical formulas. However, for complex constructions, like joint prostheses, this is not possible. Numerical simulation of internal stresses and deformations offers a solution for these constructions. The so-called Finite Element Analysis divides the complex structure in simple ones (elements), applies the mechanical formulas and adds the effect on each element to predict the behaviour of the complex contruction.
