Isolated and modulated effects of topology and material type on the mechanical properties of additively manufactured porous biomaterials

Authors R. Hedayati, S.M. Ahmadi, K. Lietaert, B. Pouran, Y. Li, Harrie Weinans, C.D. Rans, A.A. Zadpoor Abstract Additive manufacturing (AM) techniques offer the possibility to produce open-cell porous implants with the desired topological design at the micro-scale. The vast majority of previous theoretical and numerical studies carried out on the mechanical properties of AM …

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, …
