W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. - ASTM International has announced the release of STP 1515, Fatigue and Fracture of Medical Metallic Materials and Devices, 2nd Volume. The book contains eleven peer-reviewed papers that address the unique thermal and mechanical properties of shape memory alloys (SMA's) and metallic medical materials and devices.

The principle focus of STP 1515 is on nitinol, since these unique alloys offer the designer new dimensions in controlling the shape of devices used in medical and many structural applications. Shape memory devices such as valves, actuators, clutches and gaskets are proposed for monitoring units, drive systems and repair schemes. Biocompatible implanted medical devices rely on the hyperelastic response of these unique materials.

Topics covered include: metallurgical basics of martensitic transformations and fatigue behavior of nitinol; crystallographic basis of deformation and fracture in nitinol; finite element analysis of stents; arterial deformation assessment; stent deformation determination in femoral and carotid arteries; and standard coronary arterial geometry.

STP 1515, Fatigue and Fracture of Medical Metallic Materials and Devices, 2nd Volume, is available in both print (150 pages; soft cover 6 x 9"; stock # STP1515; ISBN: 978-0-8031-7501-5) and as an E-book (stock # STP1515-EB; ISBN: 978-0-8031-7501-3) for $55.
