ASTM F897

Fretting Corrosion of Plates and Screws

Describes the method to determine material loss due to cyclic fretting corrosion between screw head and plate hole countersink junctions of devices used for osteosynthesis. Mass loss of the plates and screws and chemical analysis of the solutions are evaluated to determine the amount of fretting corrosion that occurred.
