While this cyclic eccentric loading method accurately simulates the rocking horse loading mechanism, the minimum loading requirements recommended by the testing standard (750 N axial load as the humeral head is translated to [+ or -] 90% of the subluxation distance to induce shear and a resultant load between 800 N and 1,000 N depending upon the articular constraint of the tested device) (1) may not be sufficient to simulate worst-case loading magnitudes.

In recent years, extensive investigations of the simulation of hysteretic responses and the prediction of low-cycle fatigue endurances of moment connections and joints under cyclic loading have been conducted experimentally or numerically [5].
Although continuous oral contraceptive regimens, which result in less bleeding than do cyclic regimens, have proven effective and acceptable to most women in studies in developed countries, few data are available for developing countries.
During an initial experiment, the material was subjected to cyclic mechanical loading but the heat produced was evacuated in order to prevent any local temperature increase in the material.
Tezuka (Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan) introduces the topic and emphasizes that recent breakthroughs have allowed production of polymers having a variety of cyclic and multicyclic topologies, offering opportunities for the design of polymer materials with particular properties based on the form of the polymer.
In the past decade, a number of studies have focused on experimental and theoretical analysis of the mechanical behavior of polymers under cyclic loading (1-12) Most of these works concentrated on the time- and rate-dependent response of polymers in cyclic tests with (i) mixed programs, where a sample was loaded up to some maximum strain [[epsilon].
