The knee joint is one of the most important voluntary organs of the human body. Modelling and simulating it under various stress and strain conditions can help us understand its mechanical behavior to a better extent. We have attempted to model the knee joint and analyze it under varying loads to get an indication about the fatigue life of the joint. The study of the normal knee under cyclic loading helps us know more about the life of the assembly. Fatigue analysis can help us understand the cause of various knee joint disorders. It would enable us to design better ways to tackle the problems faced by patients suffering from such disorders. Moreover this prototype can be used as a reference for comparing the various treatments recommended to the patients, enabling us to find the best treatment for such disorders.
