FR Recognition Number 11-308
Standard
ASTM F3161-16
Standard Test Method for Finite Element Analysis (FEA) of Metallic Orthopaedic Total Knee Femoral Components under Closing Conditions.
Scope/Abstract
1.1 This standard establishes requirements and considerations for the numerical simulation of metallic orthopaedic cemented and cementless total knee femoral components using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) techniques for the estimation of stresses and strains. This standard is only applicable to stresses below the yield strength, as provided in the material certification.

1.2 Purpose-This test method establishes requirements and considerations for the development of finite element models to be used in the evaluation of metallic orthopaedic total knee femoral component designs for the purpose of prediction of the static implant stresses and strains. This procedure can be used for worst-case assessment within a family of implant s to provide efficiencies in the amount of physical testing to be conducted. Recommended procedures for performing model checks and verification are provided to help determine if the analysis follows recommended guidelines. Finally, the recommended content of an engineering report covering the mechanical simulation is presented.

1.3 Limits-This document is limited in discussion to the static structural analysis of metallic orthopaedic total knee femoral components (which excludes the prediction of fatigue strength).
