This webinar spotlights how we use the materials selection methodology developed by Prof. Mike Ashby to identify the best material candidates for a joint hip replacement.

Learning how to choose materials to meet certain design constraints and objectives is critical. Understanding the behavior of these materials under different forces and pressures is fundamental to meeting the requirements of the product they are being designed for. For example, in healthcare, we often wonder how a product will perform in the body, however, we are limited by pre-clinical studies. This is where a simulation tool is cost effective, especially when it comes to teaching.

This webinar spotlights how we use the materials selection methodology developed by Prof. Mike Ashby to identify the best material candidates for a joint hip replacement. We will use a computer-aided design model of the hip implant to generate simulation results. Additionally, we will vary the materials choices using the simulation tool and understand the best material choices. Lastly, we will compare analytical to numerical results.

  • Discover how to use EduPack for advanced materials selection of a hip implant.
  • Learn how to use computer-aided design for teaching.
  • Explore how to use Discovery, a simulation-driven tool, to answer critical design questions.

Presenters


Dr. Lakshana Mohee completed a PhD in the Cambridge Centre for Medical Materials at the Department of Materials and Metallurgy at the University of Cambridge. Her technical background is collagen scaffolds for tissue engineering, as well as other bioengineering areas. Currently at Granta, she supports Universities in Canada, Sweden, and Poland, as well as parts of the USA. She was born in Mauritius and moved to France for her undergraduate studies in Materials Science and Engineering in a French Engineering School called INSA Rennes. She completed her Master’s Degree in Biomaterials at the same institution. During her studies, she had research internships in Canada and Singapore, and an industrial placement in Mauritius.

Dr. David Mercier. David fait partie de la Division Education de Granta Design, en support pour les universités et les établissements d’enseignement et de recherche en France et en Belgique en tant que responsable de développement. Il a obtenu son master et son doctorat en science des matériaux et en ingénierie de l’Université de Grenoble (France) et son expérience professionnelle est fortement liée aux domaines de la microélectronique et de la métallurgie. David a participé à plusieurs projets de recherche postdoctoraux en Allemagne et en Belgique pendant 6 ans, en particulier dans le domaine de la modélisation multi-échelle et de la caractérisation des propriétés mécaniques des matériaux par nanoindentation.
