Fracture, Fatigue, and Corrosion for Medical Device Validation
Four Points by Sheraton Norwood Hotel and Conference Center, Norwood, MA
This course will review the basics of stress analysis, fracture mechanics, fatigue, corrosion, and electrochemistry and their application for medical device design validation. Several case studies with specific device design and validation approaches are given. In addition, the seminar will provide information regarding FDA submissions with respect to stress analysis, fatigue, and corrosion of medical devices.
Fundamentals of Metal Fatigue Analysis
The overall objective of the course is for participants to gain an understanding of the phenomenon of metal fatigue and learn what methods are available to predict and prevent failures. Two methods of metal fatigue analysis will be covered. The first is the stress-life approach. This method is used for high-cycle or very long life fatigue problems where loads have fairly constant...
