A comparative study of three synthetic composite femur bones using traditional biomechanical analysis and photoelastic strain measurements was presented. Studies showed that the use of shorter glass fibers in epoxy improved stiffness values. The presence of the intermedullary space was improved the deformation response and the overall strain distribution.
