Abstract

Magnesium (Mg) alloys are attractive for their great potential as temporary bio-implants. However, Mg alloys can suffer sudden cracking/fracture under the simultaneous action of cyclic loading and the corrosive physiological environment, i.e., corrosion fatigue (CF). Though there are reports on CF of Mg alloy, it is necessary that the investigations of such fracture should be performed under conditions that appropriately simulate those in actual human body conditions. This article describes a relatively more accurate testing procedure and preliminary data generated using this procedure.
