Comparison of Static Testing per ASTM F2077 Using a Constrained, Semi-Constrained and Unconstrained Test Setup

PROJECT OVERVIEW

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

To evaluate and determine whether the hypothesis is true

Test a mock Interbody fusion device in static axial compression testing, static compressive shear testing and static torsion testing in a constrained test setup, a semi-constrained test setup and an unconstrained test setup per ASTM F2077.

Null Hypothesis:

There is no difference between the mechanical performance of static axial compression testing, compressive shear testing and torsion testing in a constrained test setup, a semi-constrained test setup and unconstrained test setup per ASTM F2077
