Hello,
Briefly, I am trying to find an artificial material that may replace human
cancellous bone in lab testing.
It needs to be open-porous, and a bit ductile, just as cancellous bone.
Some people have recommended ceramic and/or foam. However, most ceramic
materials are brittle, most PU foams are closed-porous

Thanks in advance.
