Mechanical characterisation and modelling of electrospun materials for biomedical applications

Abstract

Electrospun nonwovens, due to their intrinsic beneficial properties, have found many applications in biomedical areas such as tissue engineering, drug delivery, or active wound management. Exploiting its porous structure, electrospun is often used as scaffolds for tissue growth which can be stimulated by mechanical properties of the structure. Cells… (More)
