Orthopaedic implant materials have an important role in the field of medical science. Characteristics of implant materials such as rigidity, corrosion, biocompatibility, surface morphology, tissue receptivity, and stability are the key factors that influence the choice of the implant material. The mechanical properties of the implants are one of the significant factors for bone substitution. To understand the mechanical properties of these solid substitutes, the use of solid mechanics, which is intended for general structural analysis of 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional bodies is vital. In this study, 3-dimensional modelling of implant and simulation using the finite element analysis software were incorporated to investigate the effect of load direction on the stress distribution in different orthopaedic implant materials. 

Keywords: Finite element analysis, Load-bearing capacity, Load direction, Mechanical properties, Metal alloys, Orthopedic implant, Simulation, Solid mechanics, Stress distribution, Volume displacement, Von Mises stress distribution.
