Classical design procedures in biomechanics are carried out under deterministic constraints, despite the fact that constraints can vary constantly when considering changes in terms of environment, ageing, disease, nutrition and other factors.
There is a strong need to consider this complexity in material property uncertainty, which can become problematic when considering biomechanical applications where a number of uncertainties are encountered, such as in the design of prostheses.
This book implements improved numerical strategies and algorithms that can be applied only in biomechanical studies, exploring different reliability methodologies considering uncertainties on geometry, material properties and loading.
By accounting for all these factors, the authors provide several tools needed to create reliability-based designs in biomechanics applications.


1. Basic Tools for Reliability Analysis.
2. Reliability Concept.
3. Integration of Reliability Concept into Biomechanics.
4. Reliability Analysis of Orthopedic Prostheses.
5. Reliability Analysis of Orthodontic Prostheses.
