Material Analysis


Stress-Strain data of 0.6% agaros gel, which has similar mechanical properties to the scaffold material (gelatin methacrylate), was gathered to develop the pressure range required by the machine. While previous research suggested that up to 5 kPa of dynamic loads was desirable, only a maximum of 2 kPa could be achieved at the given scaffold size before comprimising material integrity.
