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.

Isotropic hardening law

Hi all,

I have come across the two relations where aim to describe the isotropic hardening of a material

Power law:

R = Kεpn R is the variation in stress from initial yield, εp is the plastic strain where K is the strenght coefficient and n is the strain hardening exponent as observed in Ramberg Osgood equations.

Exponential law:

R = R∞ [1-e(-bεp)] where R∞ is the saturated value of the R variation, b is the rate at which the sauration is reached.
