ASTM WK35077

    Revision of F1160 - 05 Standard Test Method for Shear and Bending Fatigue Testing of Calcium Phosphate and Metallic Medical and Composite Calcium Phosphate/Metallic Coatings

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F1160 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: F04.15 | Committee F04 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    The test method currently includes a tapered cantilever beam (TCB) test sample for tension tension evaluation of coated surfaces. There are limitations to the TCB test sample that should be explained. In addition, the four point bend test sample type should be added as an alternative type of tension tension bend test sample.
