dc.description.abstract Mechanical Engineering, especially at degree studies level, is basically focused on man-made components. Therefore, different mechanical components have been studied for the main engineering fields, such as energy or vehicle industries. All of those different components have been studied in detail, following their industrial process where their material and structural properties are modified to meet their specific requirements. However, to design and built all those components, human beings have always been firstly inspired by something that was already there. Therefore, a wide range of different nature features has been inspiring the different industrial inventions developed by humans. As an engineer, instead of continuing analysing any mechanical feature industrially designed, this project aim was to study a component created by nature, analysing it from an engineering point of view. And there is when human femur appears, being one essential part of our body which also allows connecting engineering with the medical field. Moreover, the complex structure and properties that femur present can bring many inspiring ideas that, again, Nature shows to Engineering.
