The role of interfacial mechanics in the prediction of global mechanical behavior of a bioactive composite: an in vitro study.

Abstract

A bioactive bone-tissue substitute, hydroxyapatite (HA)-polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) with the addition of a copolymer coupling agent, was examined in vitro to determine the influence of the coupling agent on the local mechanical properties of the system before and after simulated biologic conditions. Nano-indentation of the cross-sectional interface… (More)
