Abstract: J06.00002 : Mechanical Response of Bio-Inspired Suture Interface under Dynamic Loading*
3:36 PM–3:48 PM
Numerical simulations of the general trapezoidal sutures under various dynamic loading cases are performed. Specimens are fabricated via additive manufacturing. Impact loading tests in the directions both parallel and perpendicular to the suture direction are conducted. In this investigation, we focus on evaluate the influences of the three key design factors of sutures: the suture waviness and geometry, the number of hierarchy, and the introduction of an interphase.
