Evaluating the effect of increasing ceramic content on the mechanical properties, material microstructure and degradation of selective laser sintered PCL/b-TCP materials
Orthopaedic scaffold materials were fabricated from polycaprolactone (PCL) and composite PCL β-tricalcium phosphate (PCL/β-TCP) powders using selective laser sintering (SLS). Incorporating β-TCP particles is ...
A thermodynamically motivated model for stress-fiber reorganization
(Springer Verlag, 2015-09-04)
We present a model for stress-fiber reorganization and the associated contractility that includes both the kinetics of stress-fiber formation and dissociation as well as the kinetics of stress-fiber remodeling. These ...
Modelling the degradation and elastic properties of poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) films and regular open -cell tissue engineering scaffolds
Scaffolding plays a critical rule in tissue engineering and an appropriate degradation rate and sufficient mechanical integrity are required during degradation and healing of tissue. This paper presents a computational ...
Improving the finite element model accuracy of tissue engineered scaffolds produced by selective laser sintering
(Springer Verlag, 2015-01-13)
In bone tissue engineering, both geometrical and mechanical properties of a scaffold play a major part in the success of the treatment. The mechanical stresses and strains that act on cells on a scaffold in a physiological ...
