|Title:||Computational testing of Ti-based orthopaedic implant with porous structure by using of finite element method||Authors:||Mircheski, Ile||Keywords:||3D-CAD, 3D-FEA, bone, porous, acetabular cup, Young’s modulus||Issue Date:||May-2015||Publisher:||Technical University of Sofia, Center for research and design in human comfort, energy and environment||Conference:||11th International course for young researchers, Topic: Computational engineering||Abstract:||In this paper, novel designs of porous acetabular cups are created and tested with 3D finite element analysis (FEA). The aim is to develop a porous acetabular cup with low Young’s modulus, which will be near to the architectural and mechanical behavior of the natural bone. For the realization of this research, a 3D-scanner technology was used for obtaining a 3D-CAD model of the pelvis bone, a 3D-CAD software for creating a porous acetabular cup, and a 3D-FEA software for virtual testing of a novel design of the porous acetabular cup. The results obtained from this research reveal that a porous acetabular cup from Ti-based alloys with 60%±5% porosity, has the mechanical behavior and Young’s modulus that meet and exceed the required properties of the natural bone. The virtual testing with 3D-FEA of a novel design with porous structure during the very early stage of the design and the development of orthopedic implants, enables obtaining a new or improved biomedical implant for a relatively short time and reduced price.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12188/1075||DOI:||91
