Paper Abstract

The science of stress analysis has been applied extensively to human skeletal structures for many years by a variety of techniques and with varying degrees of success. The most modern of these techniques is computer Finite Element analysis (FE analysis) where the speed and power of the digital computer in combination with very sophisticated software can generate complex models and analyse both static and dynamic stress values. However the FE method in common with other techniques is only as good as the representative model and the knowledge of the many parameters required and must be evaluated against known and proven data.
