Mechanics and Strength of Biomaterials

Tuesday, September 28, 2021
10:00 – 11:00 am Central European Time

This presentation will introduce a range of biomaterials test applications where mechanical test instruments are assisting researchers and engineers in gaining a better understanding of native and artificial tissues. Tissue characterization often leverages test techniques designed to measure quasi-static and dynamic properties of human or animal model tissues. These measurements can be used to evaluate drug-, hormone- or age-related changes in tissues such as bone, cartilage, tendon, ligament, vessels, eyes and heart valves. These properties can also be used as baseline or reference data for medical device development.

Topics discussed will be:

  • Mechanical behavior of human dentin
  • In-vivo rabbit bone loading
  • Characterizing PEG : CS hydrogel
  • Measuring contact lens friction
  • Mechanical stimulation of human mesenchymal stem cells
  • Stimulating airway smooth muscle cells
