Abstract

Finite element modeling of the formation of pre-loaded damage in cement mantles of orthopaedic joint replacements was presented. The existence of cracking suggested a high level of residual stress. The direction of maximum principal stress vectors corresponded well with the observed crack orientation. Results suggested that cracking depends upon a combination of residual stress, porosity and temperature rise during polymerization.
