... Real-time degradation studies of bioresorbable polymers can take weeks, months, and even years to conduct. For this reason, developing and validating mathematical models that describe and predict degradation can provide a means to accelerate the development of materials and devices for controlled drug...

... degradation has severely hampered the rational design process for these more complex biodegradable medical applications. With the objective of predicting biodegradable stent behavior, we incorporated constitutive models of biodegradable polymeric materials in a computational setting and the mechanical...
