ASTM F2996: Standard Practice for Finite Element Analysis (FEA) of Non-Modular Metallic Orthopaedic Hip Femoral Stems

This standard establishes requirements and considerations for the development of finite element models to evaluate static implant stresses and strains of non-modular metallic orthopedic hip stem designs. It can be used for worst case assessment within a family of implant sizes to provide efficiencies in the amount of physical testing. The loading is performed according to ISO 7206-4.
