Abstract

Numerical modeling of the human knee joint has been pursued by various researchers [1,2]. Several knee joint models have been reported to simulate the kinematic and dynamic response of the knee joint to external loads, which to various degrees are representative of those found in the knee’s daily function. However, experimental validation of these models has been scarcely documented. Typical validation procedures should include a comparison of computational results from numerical simulations, to those from experimental tests performed on actual human joint specimens. The loading conditions must be carefully controlled and reproduced from one testing approach to another for acceptable comparison of the knee joint responses.
