Due to current demand, the usage of synthetic bone had increased dramatically during these recent years. The main purpose of this project is to develop and analyze the impact strength model for human synthetic bone. The impact test simulation was done in finite element analysis (FEA). The bone model geometry will be designed in Solidwork environment and imported into finite element environment for FEA Finite element analysis will be carried out in MSC. Patran/Marc and Algor respectively. Major input data to FEM were isotropic material model, solid element type (tetrahedral in MSC. Marc and brick in Algor), constraints and impact load. Material properties were taken from literature. The model were validated with published experimental results. Predicted stress-strain response of synthetic bone was agreeable with published report. Based on the analysis results, MSC. Marc model is better than Algor. The result obtained shows the response of synthetic bone towards impact loading.
