Abstract [en]

The principal aim of this research is the design of a more compliant horseshoe which allows the natural expansion and compression of the horse hoof. Three different simulations have been carried out in by using Finite Element Method in order to know the behaviour of the horse hoof when is analysed under the same load conditions. First the hoof will be studied without any horseshoe to obtain the produced displacement by the hoof expansion. Once the displacement of the barefoot hoof is known, an assembly, in which a sample stiff horseshoe is attached to the hoof by nails, will be performed to obtain both the hoof displacement as the horseshoe one. Finally, after three different researches about the current horseshoes, different possible alternative materials and most commons attachment methods, a more flexible horseshoe will be created and analysed. The results obtained in the three simulations will be compared and commented.
