Modeling shape memory effect in uncrosslinked amorphous biodegradable polymer

Wong, Y-Sh; Stachurski, Zbigniew; Venkatraman, S S

Description

Shape memory effect (SME) is critical for minimally invasive surgical procedures in medicine. In this paper, the shape memory behavior of amorphous biodegradable polymer, poly(d,l-lactide-co-glycolide), is experimentally investigated. Based on the experimental observations and the understanding of the underlying mechanism of SME, a one-dimensional constitutive model is derived to describe the shape memory behavior in the context of (1) the stress-strain behavior in deformation, (2) the...[Show more]
