In reconstructive surgery, an artificial supporting scaffold made from autogenous cartilage from the rib, the ear concha, or the nasal septum is used as a substitute for the destroyed endogenous tissue in the ear concha, the nose, the trachea, and in parts of the facial skeleton. For the successful use of polymer materials in reconstructive surgery, an(More)
The effect of roll compaction/dry granulation on the ribbon and tablet properties produced using different magnesium carbonates was evaluated. The ribbon microhardness and the pore size distribution of tablets were used as evaluation factors. Increasing the specific compaction force resulted in higher microhardness for ribbons prepared with all four(More)
Roughness profiles of fracture surfaces formed as a result of the fast crack propagation through a filled rubber were analyzed by means of the height-height correlation functions. The fracture surface was found to be anisotropic in a certain domain of values of length scales; i.e., different values of roughness exponents are observed across and along the(More)
The hygrothermal aging of short glass fiber-reinforced polyamide 6 materials (PA6 GF) represents a major problem, especially in thin-walled components, such as in the automotive sector. In this study, therefore, the thickness and the glass fiber content of PA6 GF materials were varied and the materials were exposed to hygrothermal aging. The temperature and(More)
The structure of blown films of blends of low-density polyethylene (PE-LD) and isotactic polybutene-1 (iPB-1) with different content of iPB-1 was investigated using wideand small-angle X-ray scattering (WAXS and SAXS), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and polarizing optical microscopy (POM). TEM proves formation of a matrix–particle phase structure(More)
To study the mechanical behaviour of the implant-bone interface the push- or pull-out test was overtaken from material science. Most authors equate the maximum load (break point) with the failure of the implant integration. Extending the test procedure by acoustic emission analysis reveals the possibility to detect the failure of the interface more in(More)
