Beside mechanical functionality and stability, biodegradation plays an important role in implant design and optimization. In this project, we will develop a 3D mathematical model of biodegradation of printed implants, which provides a framework for assessment of degradation and corrosion of implants in the bioreactor (in-vitro) and body (in-vivo) environments. The mathematical models will cover a variety of materials. In addition, chemical and biological interaction of the implant with the bioreactor environment will be modeled as well. The mathematical models will be simulated using proper numerical schemes. The developed code will be linked with structure optimization models to obtain more accurate predictions of the implant behavior over time.
