Standard Practice for Corrosion Fatigue Testing of Metallic Implant Materials
standard by ASTM International, 10/01/2020



1.1 This practice covers the procedure for performing corrosion fatigue tests to obtain S-N (3.2.1) fatigue curves or statistically derived fatigue strength values, or both, for metallic implant materials. This practice describes the testing of axially loaded fatigue specimens subjected to a constant amplitude, periodic forcing function in saline solution at 37°C and in air at room temperature. The environmental test method for implant materials may be adapted to other modes of fatigue loading such as bending or torsion. While this practice is not intended to apply to fatigue tests on implantable components or devices, it does provide guidelines for fatigue tests with standard specimens in an environment related to physiological conditions.
