New Guide for Fatigue Strength Characterization of Components, Coupons, and Surrogates for Metallic Cardiovascular Medical Devices

1. Scope

1. Test specimen selection/creation
2. Conducting the fatigue test
3. Data analysis and interpretation




Conducting component/coupon/surrogate fatigue testing is a very common part of cardiovascular medical device development that would benefit greatly from standardization and a listing of best practices. This proposed document would aid users in the fatigue strength determination of their device material in its final, finished form so as to enable accurate fatigue assessments.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
