Finite Element Modeling Of Human Knee Joint - Meniscus Under Compressive Load
The main aim is to develop the three dimensional solid finite element model of knee joint to predict stress in its
individual components (Femur, Tibia, Fibula and Menisci) and to determine the load carried by a pre – selected ligamentous
tissue. This work assists to analyze a knee response to a dynamically applied load. This simulated analysis will serve to be an
alternative approach to destructive tests and intrusive procedures and helps to achieve closer simulation to reality. The main
expectation is to simulate the whole articulation using three dimensional solid models. This paper will aid to control the
geometry of movements of knee joint. This Modeling will be helpful to study underlying mechanisms for knee injuries.
