Abstract: This research was directed towards a study of the lower limb of the human body through the 3D modelling and finite element analysis of the tibia. FEA is used to evaluate the stresses and displacements of human tibia bone under physiological loading. In this study, CT scan data of patients' tibia bone (healthy, broken tibia bone after one month and two months of surgery tibia bone) are used to develop 3D finite element models of the left proximal tibia bone, and average body weight applied on tibia bone. FEA is conducted to calculate the equivalent von Mises stress, maximum principal stress, total deformation and fatigue tool from the whole proximal tibia bone and comparing the results. These analysed results provide a great foundation for further studies of bone injury prevention, bone transplant model integrity and validity and subject-specific fracture mechanism as the results of three bones compared.
