Table 5 Stresses at the reference point of the different specimens after the 2D linear FEA

From: Mechanical strength assessment of a drilled hole in the contralateral cortex at the end of the open wedge for high tibial osteotomy

Cases Specimens Max. equiv. stress σ eq,max (MPa) Max. princ. stress σ 1(MPa) Mid. princ. stress σ 2(MPa) Min. princ. stress σ 3(MPa)

  1. The principal stresses σ 2 and σ 3 were zero due to the fact that plane stress state was assumed and the reference point was located on an unloaded border
