Ceramic femoral component fatigue testing - F3495

F3495 - Standard Test Methods for Determining the Static Failure Load of Ceramic Knee

Femoral Components


This standard covers two methods for static burst testing of a ceramic femoral component used in total knee replacement. Testing covers both, the in vivo loading conditions, and the intraoperative loading conditions during impaction.

  • Tension load (opening load) test
  • Compression (closing load) test
