Bioglass-based glass-ceramic foams have been developed recently as highly porous, mechanically competent, bioactive and degradable scaffolds for bone tissue engineering. However, the development of the material so far has been based on a trial-and-error approach, and the existing materials are far from being optimized. In this paper, a mechanism-based model is presented for sintering deformation of Bioglass foams. The porous foams consist of struts which, in turn, consist of Bioglass particles… CONTINUE READING
