    Molecular structural mechanics approach is implemented to investigate vibrational behavior of single-layered graphene sheets. By using the atomistic modeling, mode shapes and natural frequencies are obtained. Vibration analysis is performed under different chirality and boundary conditions. Numerical results from the finite element technique are applied to develop empirical equations via a statistical multiple non-linear regression model. With the proposed empirical equations, fundamental frequencies of single-layered graphene sheets under considered boundary conditions can be predicted within 3 percent accuracy.

    Abstract: 3D bioprinting technology is a promising approach for corneal stromal tissue regeneration. In this study, gelatin methacrylate (GelMA) mixed with corneal stromal cells was used as a bioink. The visible light-based stereolithography (SLA) 3D bioprinting method was utilized to print the anatomically similar dome-shaped structure of the human corneal stroma. Two different concentrations of GelMA macromer (7.5 and 12.5%) were tested for corneal stroma bioprinting. Due to high macromer concentrations, 12.5% GelMA was stiffer than 7.5% GelMA, which made it easier to handle. In terms of water content and optical transmittance of the bioprinted scaffolds, we observed that scaffold with...
