Abstract

Elastomeric electrospun construct fabrication conditions are evaluated with regard to their effect on fiber topology and biaxial mechanical response. It is determined that fiber alignment alone is insufficient to predict mechanical response. Moreover, fiber intersection density is introduced as a quantifiable structural measure that can be manipulated to achieve mechanical anisotropy similar to that of native soft tissues.
