Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) is extensively used in orthopaedic implants, and recent constitutive modeling efforts have endeavored to rigorously capture the nonlinear, quasi-static, inelastic properties of the material. In particular, the “hybrid model” developed by Bergstrom et al. has been shown to accurately characterize the response of UHMWPE to various loading protocols including uniaxial tension to failure, cyclic uniaxial tension/compression, and small punch testing [1–2].
