THE STATE OF STRESSES IN THE PROXIMAL FEMORAL BONE IN BIPODAL AND UNIPODAL SUPPORT
In this study, we are trying to determine the stresses state of the proximal femoral bone in the case of bipodal and unipodal support. Apply the section method by evaluating axial force N, shear force T and bending moment Mi, and plotting the variation diagrams. By drawing the force and moment variation diagrams, the maximum loaded transversal secţion is highlighted, corresponding to the intertrochanteric area for both cases of support. For unipodal support, in the intertrochanterian area, the stresses produced by the axial force, shear force and bending moment are calculated, their variation diagrams are drawn and the maximum loaded fiber is identified.
