Dear colleagues

At the University of Aveiro, Department of Mechanical
Engineering, we are developing and assessing a new
cemented
hip reconstruction. Within this objective, we are
preparing
our finite element simulations. We would like to ask if
colleagues could send us IGES formats (or other usable
ones)
of the geometry of cemented hip replacements and allow us
to use them for comparative purposes. We would be even
more
happy if these prosthesis are inserted in the standardized
femur program (Rizzoli Institute). We can accept formats
for Abaqus, Ideas and HyperMesh and are mainly, but not
only, interested in the Stanmore, Charnley, Exeter and
Lubinius cemented versions. We look forward to analyse
others also.

We will appreciate much your kind help and will be pleased
to send you our results and conclusions when the study is
finish.

Let me have this opportunity to send you all a MERRY
CHRISTMAS an EXCELLENT HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Best Regards
