Three Dimensional Finite Element Analysis of Pelvic Bone
Sweta Kuraria,  Veerendra Kumar
Human hips based bio mechanical studies for the analysis of two dimensional pelvic radio graphs have turned out to be a reasonable compromise between the measurement accuracy and the feasibility in clinical setting. Through advances in three dimensional imaging with MRI and CT the ability for the estimation of resultant hip force with three dimensional imaging of the hip weight-bearing surface, contact hip stress for a given activity/body position has been greatly improved. Bioengineering concerns many important problems apply to human body. The pelvic joint and its correct working is one of them. The pelvic bone is one of the most important supporting elements in human pelvic joint but it is liable to suffer an injury. Very often before and after operations the knowledge of the stress and strain distribution in the pelvic bone is needed, our objective was to use a simple three-dimensional (3-D) mathematical model to evaluate the vonmises stress distribution, maximum principle stress distribution and fatigue for the peak contact force under different physiological loading condition, for the purposes of which right human hemi pelvic bone of four female patient age group between 35 to 45 is taken into account. Which shows that major weight bearing area sacro-iliac joint and the pubic symphysis.
