Nachtrab, Susan; Kapfer, Sebastian C; Rietzel, Dominik; Madadi, Mahyar; Drummer, Dietmar; Arns, Christoph; Kraynik, Andrew M; Schroeder-Turk, Gerd E; Mecke, Klaus


Tuning mechanical properties of and fluid flow through open-cell solid structures is a challenge for material science, in particular for the design of porous structures used as artificial bone scaffolds in tissue engineering. We present a method to tune the effective elastic properties of custom-designed open-cell solid foams and bone scaffold geometries by almost an order of magnitude while approximately preserving the pore space geometry and hence fluid transport properties. This strong...[Show more]
