Osteoarthrosis (OA) is a very serious hip joint disease, which is due to some of chemical, mechanical and genic reasons. One of OA frequent reasons is an excessive mechanical loading of articular cartilage. Geometrical shape and mainly a mode of loading cause different stress and contact pressure magnitude and distribution in the hip joint. This paper specified contact stress and pressure distributions in the hip joint. Further, influence of changes in the loading modes and magnitudes on the contact pressure and stress distributions in the hip joint was evaluated.
