Here, we use the example of a poly(L-lactic acid) (PLLA) nanofibrous scaffold that can be used for tissue engineering application. The elastic modulus of a single nanofiber obtained previously from a nanoscale three-point bend test performed using atomic force microscopy was used to model the elastic modulus and elastic collapse stress of the bulk scaffold. Various open-cell solid models are examined for the modeling of bulk scaffold behavior. © 2006 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.||Source Title:||Journal of Biomedical Materials Research - Part A||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/51350||ISSN:||15493296||DOI:||10.1002/jbm.a.30646|
