Get Started

In this session we will introduce industry specific applications from the heathcare industry and how Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is used to determine the stress experienced by various biological tissues and to design various surgical implants. In the first simulation, we simulate how a shape-memory alloy is used in a spinal spacer. Then we simulate the deployment of a stent through a balloon angioplasty procedure. Following that we analyze the bending behavior of a rat femur and use simulations to obtain the stress and strain distributions. We wrap up the session by performing stress analysis of a hip implant and of an intervertebral disc.
