Abstract

The hydraulic permeability of was measured as a function of interconnectivity of the pores. The hydraulic permeability of porous scaffolds for tissue engineering of bone was measured as interconnectivity of the pores was changed from 100 % to 70 %. The permeability decreased by a factor of 10 +/- 0.5, 2 +/- 0.2, and 1.3 +/- .01 (+/- = u) for pore sizes of (300, 600, and 900) um, respectively.
