 In this study, an impingement failure analysis was performed on acetabular liner rim of an artificial hip joint (AHJ). A commercial finite element method software package was used to simulate local impingement on the acetabular liner rim (ALR) due to wear depth variations (wear rates) inside the acetabular liner surface (ALS). The results show that wear rates of the ALS can increase the risk of impingement on the ALR.
