Is the study of Low Cycle Fatigue (LCF) and cyclic plasticity useful for biomedical metals?

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

I would like to open a discussion in relation to the following question:

"Is the study of Low Cycle Fatigue (LCF) and cyclic plasticity useful for biomedical metals?"

It appears that there is some level of misunderstanding around this issue. Thus, I would be very interested to find out the views of iMechanica community engineers and researchers working on biomedical metals and applications (i.e. implants) on this.

WOM 2011 - 18th International Conference on Wear of Materials, Philadelphia, USA - Call for stand alone posters.

Submissions are now closed for oral presentations to WOM 2011, however, contributions are invited for stand-alone posters. WOM 2011 is to take place in Philadelphia, USA - April 3-7 next year.  It will focus on both the fundamental and applied aspects of wear and friction of materials at the macro-, micro- and nano-scale. Special emphasis will be placed on wear issues in harsh environments, energy conversion, and debris particle generation and its impact on the environment.

Simpleware and COMSOL Announce Partnership

Simpleware Ltd. and COMSOL Inc. announced at the COMSOL Users Conference 2007 in Grenoble a partnership agreement to provide an export interface from Simpleware's world-leading 3D image-based meshing software +ScanFE™ to COMSOL Multiphysics® 3.4, the industry's foremost multiphysics simulation environment. The +ScanFE interface enables COMSOL users to directly import high-quality meshes generated from MRI, CT, and MicroCT scan data into COMSOL Multiphysics 3.4 for modelling and simulation without requiring re-meshing or pre-processing.
