Paper Title:
Numerical Modelling of Surface Texturing of UHMWPE under Influence of Normal Load
  Abstract

The reduced wear rate of hip-joint bearing components is the main issues in biotribology researches for the biomedical implants. Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) is extensively used as a bearing material because of having its great properties of friction and wear. Surface texturing can be selected as a method of enhancing tribology properties of engineering surfaces. In this present study, surface texturing examination was performed by 3D finite element method under influence of normal load. Stress distribution of UHMWPE surface under the influence of texturing with the variation in diameter cavities and separation was investigated. The result showed that the surface texturing provided the higher stress distribution of the lower separation in the cylindrical cavities.
