ASTM F 1829 (F-1829) describes a method for determining the static shear disassembly force of modular glenoid components used in shoulder prostheses. It is intended to be used as a design validation and for comparison with other prostheses. This test method covers modular glenoid components comprised of a separate articular insert and backing. The insert and backing can be fabricated from any combination of the following materials: metal alloys, polymeric materials, composite materials. The glenoid component is used in shoulder replacements and should conform to the criteria specified in Specification F 1378.
