... to the simulation of the fabrication of a diamond shape stent specimen, followed by cyclic loading. This specimen is being used by a consortium of several stent manufacturers dedicated to the development of fatigue laws suitable for life prediction of Nitinol devices. The FEA models represent the geometry...

... was added to accommodate for large actuation excursions. A number of prototypes were produced and tested for fatigue, plastic deformation, failure load, and displacements of the long links at the JLS locations under different axial loads. These tests confirmed the proper mechanical functioning...
