Abstract

The fundamental goal of this research is to provide a method to predict the fatigue life of Magnesium and its alloys in human body fluid environment. Estimation of fatigue life of Magnesium and its alloys in human body fluid environment can help doctors and patients to choose the best biomaterial for implantation surgery. This fact is true due to the reason that based on the fatigue life of these materials it can be easily predicted how long these biomaterials can last in human body. However, this is due to the reason that Magnesium and its alloys may dissolve in human body by the end of their fatigue life. As a result, no second surgery may be required for the patients and doctors. This study aims to present a method to determine the fatigue life of Magnesium and its alloys in human body fluid. The results can help to select the best option of biomaterials.

Key words: Fatigue life, magnesium, magnesium alloys, human body fluid.
