Fatigue performance of additively manufactured meta- biomaterials: the effects of topology and material type

Authors ┬áS.M. Ahmadi, R. Hedayati, Y. Li, K. Lietaert, A. Fatemi, C.D. Rans, B. Pouran, H. Weinans, A.A. Zadpoor Abstract Additive manufacturing (AM) techniques enable fabrication of bone-mimicking meta-biomaterials with unprecedented combinations of topological, mechanical, and mass transport properties. The mechanical performance of AM meta-biomaterials are direct function of their topological design. It is, however, …
