Abstract Preview

This document specifies methods of determining the compressive (fracture) or the tension (disassembly) loads required, under specific laboratory conditions, to cause failure of a modular head system.

This document applies to components made of metallic and non-metallic materials, such as femoral heads of partial or total hip-joint replacements of modular construction (i.e. a head/neck conical taper connection).

This document excludes methods of examining and reporting the test specimens.
