Abstract (english): The deformation of metallic acetabular cups employed for metal-on-metal hip resurfacing procedures was considered theoretically using the finite element method in the present study, following on the experimental investigation reported in Part 1. Three representative cups, characterized by the cup wall thickness as thin, intermediate, and thick, were considered. For the intermediate cup, the effects of both the size and the diametral interference on the cup deformation were investigated. Both two-dimensional axisymmetric and three-dimensional finite element models were developed to examine the important parameters during and after the press-fit procedure, and in particular the deformation of the metallic cup. The theoretical prediction of the cup deformation was in reasonable agreement with the corresponding experimental measurement reported in Part 1. The most significant factor influencing the cup deformation was the cup wall thickness. Both the size and the diametral interference were also shown to influence the cup deformation. It is important to ensure that the cup deformation does not significantly affect the clearance designed and optimized for tribological performances of metal-on-metal hip resurfacing prostheses. Furthermore the contact parameters at the cup and bone interface associated with the press fit were also discussed.
