"Despite the current successful methods and achievement of good joint implantation results, it is essential to further optimize the implants' shapes, enabling them to better resist extreme long-term mechanical demands. This book provides the orthopedic, biomechanical, and mathematical basis for the mathematical simulation of surgical techniques in orthopedics, as well as the numerical modeling of human joint replacements and simulation of their functions. It is a highly useful tool for designers, researchers, scientists, and manufacturers of joint implants who require the results of suggested experiments to improve existing shapes or to design the new shapes"--Provided by publisher.
