Process of finite element analysis (FEA). a The resin boxes were restrained from their bottom edges to their centers. b Rotations of both edges around the restraint axis were allowed. One of the edges was allowed to move only in the bone-axis direction to reproduce the motion of the bone in bending. c A compressive load was applied through the stainless steel bar at the center of the beam on the anterior aspect of the femoral diaphysis
