Simulation of Implantable Nitinol Stents

SIMULIA's picture

The superelastic, shape memory, biocompatibility, and fatigue properties of Nitinol, a nickel-titanium alloy, have made the material attractive for medical devices such as cardiovascular stents. However, it is a complex material and difficult to process. Finite element modeling of Nitinol devices such as stents reduces testing and time-to-market by allowing the designer to simulate the stent manufacturing and deployment processes. The constitu-tive models for superelastic alloys are available as user subroutine libraries for both Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit.
