Regular 3D periodic porous Ti-6Al-4 V structures were fabricated by the selective electron beam melting method (EBM) over a range of relative densities (0.17-0.40) and pore sizes (500-1500 µm). Structures were seeded with human osteoblast-like cells (SAOS-2) and cultured for four weeks. Cells multiplied within these structures and extracellular matrix(More)
Vascular calcification is an important pathological condition associated with increased risk of cardiovascular mortality. Hydroxyapatite (HA) found in such deposits is the same polymorph of calcium (Ca) found in bone, indicating calcification may involve mechanisms akin to bone formation. Vascular smooth muscle cells (Vsmcs) have been shown to undergo(More)
Regular 3D periodic porous Ti-6Al-4V structures intended to reduce the effects of stress shielding in load-bearing bone replacement implants (e.g., hip stems) were fabricated over a range of relative densities (0.17-0.40) and pore sizes (approximately 500-1500 μm) using selective electron beam melting (EBM). Compression-compression fatigue testing (15 Hz, R(More)
In this contribution, a low-pressure/low-temperature casting technique for the preparation of novel free-standing macrocellular polymer-derived ceramic support structures is presented. Preceramic polymers (polycarbosilane and poly(vinyl)silazane) are combined with sacrificial porogens (ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene microbeads) to yield porous(More)

We study the effect of both adhesion and friction on the geometry of monosized packings of spheres by means of discrete element simulations. We use elastic properties that are characteristic of materials typically used for particulate processing (Young's modulus in the range 20-200 GPa). The geometrical features, both global and local, of the packings are(More)
Porous, silicon carbonitride-based ceramic support structures for potential membrane and catalysis applications were generated from a preceramic polysilazane precursor in combination with spherical, ultrahigh-molecular weight polyethylene microparticles through a sacrificial filler approach. A screening evaluation was used for the determination of the(More)
Microstructure and chemical composition determine the wetting property of solid surfaces. To achieve hydrophobicity or hydrophilicity, recent efforts have mostly focused on designed patterns and sophisticated surface modification. Here we show the fabrication of a dense amorphous silicon oxynitride (SiON) film by simple annealing of perhydropolysilazane(More)
The effect of density (relative densities 0.33 to 0.90) on the impact behavior of microcellular polycarbonate (PC) was investigated. Cell size and foaming gas content were also considered. Flexed-beam Izod impact tests were conducted and the impact strength of these foams appears to be a strong function of both density and cell size. The impact strength was(More)
