Fibre Network Materials : Architecture, Mechanics and in vitro Cell Responses
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Ms Helen Gardner.
Porous implant surfaces favour bone anchoring. In addition to the capacity to provide space for infiltration, first by cells and ultimately by osseous tissue and vasculature, beneficial effects on bone-implant bonding may accrue from fibrous networks which deform in vivo and generate internal stresses/strains within the in-growing bone. This design draws on the concepts of strain-regulated bone modeling and remodeling. The presentation will focus on fibre network materials made of stainless steel and, in particular, on some aspects of our recent work on (a) architecture characterisation, (b) elastic constants and fracture characteristics and© cell responses to different topological and chemical environments.
