In this paper computational simulations of stent coating debonding are presented. Finite element methods are implemented to model coating delamination during stent crimping, deployment and recoil. Gold, titanium and polymer coatings of differing thicknesses are explicitly modeled. The interfacial relationship between the stent surface and the coating during crimping and deployment is simulated using a cohesive zone model.
