The increasing number of therapeutic options employing Nitinol devices and an associated more thorough understanding of the often complex in-vivo loading conditions such as that experienced in the SFA (superficial femoral artery) is demanding a better understanding of Nitinol fatigue behavior. Allied to this increase of applications is a demand for improved predictive modeling using Finite Element Analysis (FEA).
