Abstract

The fatigue life of bones of canine are tested under a statistical approach using the Weibull method while the flexural fatigue tests are done in four point cyclic bending using MTS 810 servohydraulic systems. Each femur is aligned on the four-point loading set up with an unsupported length of 26 mm. The anatomical orientation of the femur is such that the cranial surface is in tension and the caudal surface is in compression. The results of the Weibull analysis of stiffness loss and loading cycles for the four point cyclic bending experimental data on dog femurs are: α = 1.48 and 0.92 and β = 0.25 and 362000, respectively for stiffness loss and loading cycles.
