This study aims to simulate the mechanical behavior of the total prosthesis model of Charnley (CMK3) by the 3D finite element method and to determine the state of the stresses in the femoral components (prosthesis, cement, and bone). The components are subjected to a dynamic load due to three activities (normal walking, climbing stairs, and standing up a chair). Static loading is by selecting the maximum load for the same activities mentioned. The results show that the maximum stresses in the proximal part of the cement are very important. Moreover, new results obtained for different parameters were discussed in detail. It is understood that current research provides important lessons for the surgeon to contribute to the clinical diagnosis of durable implantations and a better understanding of the process of bone remodeling and bone prosthesis.
