ASTM F Flexural Fatigue Bone Plate Fixation Devices Test Equipment
Although the ASTM F Four Point Bend test standard may seem very straight forward, there are specific aetm the user must follow in order to maintain test validity. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.
f3822 Bending strength and stiffness information and fatigue life of the device are determined in this specification. If the test data is for internal use, then one can deviate more loosely.
The user should note that the test results generated by this test method can not be used to directly predict the in asfm performance of the bone plate being tested.
By means of our biomedical testing expertise and modular product design, we will help find the testing solution that is right for you. However, it must be noted that the user is not obligated to test using all of the described methods. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Ast to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. The standard establishes consistent methods to classify and define the geometric and performance characteristics of bone plates.
Rigid extension segments work well to sufficiently lengthen small bone plates so that they can be tested per the four point bend method.
ASTM F covers testing methods for mechanical properties of metallic bone plates. In most instances, only a subset of the herein described test methods will be required.
Either way, there are appropriate occasions when the user may deviate from a test standard. Have a question about conducting the test for this standard? Active view current version of standard. The convex surface, where accompanying bone screws will be inserted, should face downward, towards the support rollers.
Your test setup will undoubtedly have an impact on your satm testing results. We offer machines, apparatus, testers, tensile grips, test fixtures, clamps, holders, jigs, faces, jaws, extensometers, environmental and humidity chambers, furnaces, baths and custom solutions for unique applications.
ASTM F382 Flexural Fatigue Bone Plate Fixation Devices Test Equipment
The user is cautioned to consider the appropriateness of the standard in view of a particular bone plate and its potential application. For ASTM Aztm testing, the orientation of the bone plate will have a direct effect on the strength of the part in a four point bend scenario. TestResources has advanced experience in the biomedical field. Some specimens are unusual in shape, size and function. The user should follow the standard as closely as possible when dealing with irregular geometries and ASTM F provides guidelines for this case.
There are occasions when the test must deviate from the spec in order to successfully carry out the experiment. By Engaged Expert Maciej Jakucki. There are instances when we test prototypes and new devices without an established test specification. Three general items come to mind when performing any mechanical test. Futhermore, it is not the intention of the standard to describe or specify aztm designs for bone plates used in the surgical internal fixation of the skeletal system.
The four point flexural bend fixture consists of two loading rollers near the center and two support rollers at the ends of the fixture. Referenced Atsm purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Rollers are available in various sizes for different size bone plates.
The standard also presents a catalog of standard specifications that specify material; labeling and handling requirements; and standard test methods for measuring performance related mechanical characteristics determined to be important to the in vivo performance of bone plates. While on the subject of test setup, we should also discuss the use of rigid extension segments. Make an inquiry today. This test method may be used to determine a fatigue life of the bone plate at either a specific maximum bending moment or over a range of maximum bending moment conditions.
Plate bending ASTM F
As Mechanical Testing Engineers we can provide valuable insight into when to deviate from a test specification and when not to. Alternatively, the test method may be used to estimate a bone plate’s fatigue strength for a specified number of fatigue cycles. Know when astj deviate, and when not to.
Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. When comparing test results of prototype devices and predicate devices, make sure the tests were conducted in a similar fashion, without major deviations or differences in test setup, the specimen, and method in which data was collected and analyzed. This neither defines the levels of performance or case-specific clinical performance for bone plates, nor describes specific designs for bone plates.
This specification and test method establishes the consistent methods for classifying, and defining the geometric and performance characteristics of five types cloverleaf, cobra head, reconstruction, straight, and tubular of metallic bone plates used in the surgical internal fixation of the skeletal system. More content from this author Learn about our Engaged Experts. The data generated from this test method can be used to conduct relative comparisons of different bone plate designs.
Bone plates are used during orthopedic orthopaedic reconstructive surgery for alignment and fixation of bone segments.
Futhermore, it is not the intention of the standard to describe or specify specific designs for bone plates used in the surgical internal fixation of the skeletal system. The standard calls for a special TestResources test fixture GF that replicates bending movement in a single cycle test, as well as fatigue evaluation of axtm plate design. The concave surface of aztm bone plate which will come into contact with the bone during surgery should face upward in testing, toward the load rollers.
