Modeling of the mechanical behavior of 3D bioplotted scaffolds considering the penetration in interlocked strands

Appl. Sci. 2018, 8(9), 1422

Applied Sciences

Three-dimensional (3D) bioplotting has been widely used to print hydrogel scaffolds for tissue engineering applications. One issue involved in 3D bioplotting is to achieve the scaffold structure with the desired mechanical properties. To overcome this issue, various numerical methods have been developed to predict the mechanical properties of scaffolds, but limited by the imperfect representation of one key feature of scaffolds fabricated by 3D bioplotting, i.e., the penetration or fusion of strands in one layer into the previous layer. This paper presents our study on the development of a novel numerical model to predict the elastic modulus (one important index of mechanical properties) of 3D bioplotted scaffolds considering the aforementioned strand penetration. For this, the finite element method was used for the model development, while medium-viscosity alginate was selected for scaffold fabrication by the 3D bioplotting technique. The elastic modulus of the bioplotted scaffolds was characterized using mechanical testing and results were compared with those predicted from the developed model, demonstrating a strong congruity between them. Once validated, the developed model was also used to investigate the effect of other geometrical features on the mechanical behavior of bioplotted scaffolds. Our results show that the penetration, pore size, and number of printed layers have significant effects on the elastic modulus of bioplotted scaffolds; and also suggest that the developed model can be used as a powerful tool to modulate the mechanical behavior of bioplotted scaffolds.

Modeling the Flow Behavior and Flow Rate of Medium Viscosity Alginate for Scaffold Fabrication With a Three-Dimensional Bioplotter

J. Manuf. Sci. Eng.

Tissue regeneration with scaffolds has proven promising for the repair of damaged tissues or organs. Dispensing-based printing techniques for scaffold fabrication have drawn considerable attention due to their ability to create complex structures layer-by-layer. When employing such printing techniques, the flow rate of the biomaterial dispensed from the needle tip is critical for creating the intended scaffold structure. The flow rate can be affected by a number of variables including the material flow behavior, temperature, needle geometry, and dispensing pressure. As such, model equations can play a vital role in the prediction and control of the flow rate of the material dispensed, thus facilitating optimal scaffold fabrication. This paper presents the development of a model to represent the flow rate of medium viscosity alginate dispensed for the purpose of scaffold fabrication, by taking into account the shear and slip flow from a tapered needle. Because the fluid flow behavior affects the flow rate, model equations were also developed from regression of experimental data to represent the flow behavior of alginate. The predictions from both the flow behavior equation and flow rate model show close agreement with experimental results. For varying needle diameters and temperatures, the slip effect occurring at the needle wall has a significant effect on the flow rate of alginate during scaffold fabrication.
