Measurement of Mechanical Properties of Natural and Engineered Implants
Advances in Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine Open Access
Numerous tests have been used to elucidate the mechanical properties of tissues and implants including tensile, compressive, shear, hydrostatic compression and threepoint bending in one or more axial directions. The development of a non-destructive test that could be applied to tissues and materials in vivo would promote the analysis of tissue pathology as well as the design of implant materials. In this paper, we review the methods that have been used to evaluate the mechanical properties ofdoi:10.15406/atroa.2016.01.00004 fatcat:lawkuopcdffijee4j6iegj67mm
