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

Authors  S.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, …
