This article deals with the issues of modification of destructive device for ceramic heads of total hip replacement based on the analysis of tensile stress state in the head. The goal of device modification is a shift of the location with extreme value of 1max from the region of head’s hole bottom to its opening. This modification will increase the credibility of the obtained material properties of bioceramics, which will be determined from a set of head destructions using the Weibull weakest link theory.
