Summary

In this work, estimation of possibilities of using polyamide 6 (PA6) reinforced with glass fiber for Ilizarov rings applied in medicine as fixation systems was presented. Two types of composites on the base of PA6 with 25 and 50 wt. % of glass fiber (PA6/25GF and PA6/50GF, respectively) were used. Mechanical properties were tested on injection molded dumbbell specimens to determine material properties for numerical modeling. The numerical analysis of stresses and deflection for different thickness of ring was done to optimize its shape. After that analysis, two types of rings were injected from PA6/50GF and for comparison similar composite with carbon fiber was used. Composite rings were tested under bending load to estimate the correctness of processing and agreement with numerical calculation.


Key words: polyamide 6 composites, Ilizarov rings, mechanical properties, numerical modeling
