Synthesis of topologically-ordered porous magnesium
(University of Canterbury. Deparment of Mechanical Engineering, 2011)
Magnesium (Mg) and its alloys offer potential as a new class of degradable metallic orthopaedic biomaterials. In comparison with current metallic orthopaedic implant materials, Mg offers advantages such as, high specific ...
Power-law creep behaviour in magnesium and its alloys
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2008)
Creep is a time-dependent deformation of materials under stress at elevated temperatures. The phenomenon of creep allows materials to plastically deform gradually over time, even at stress levels below its yield point ...
In Vitro Assessment of the Corrosion Protection of Biomimetic Calcium Phosphate Coatings on Magnesium
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2012)
The use of magnesium for degradable implants can fill the need for temporary, load bearing, metallic orthopaedic implants without the risks and expense of further surgeries once the bone has healed. Mg is non toxic and ...
In Vitro Assessment of the Physiological Biocorrosion Behaviour of Magnesium-Based Biomaterials
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2011)
Magnesium (Mg) and its alloys provide numerous unique benefits as potential resorptive biomaterials and present the very real possibility of replacing current metallic implant materials in a variety of roles. However, ...
