Bone is a material after which to model construction materials for many reasons, including its great strength, toughness, and adaptability. This paper focuses on bone’s intrinsic ability to adapt to its environment, namely loading conditions. Research on bone’s electrical properties reveals that two phenomena occur in bone to allow it to adapt to environmental changes; they are the inherent piezoelectric property of bone and the streaming potential of bone . Together they create charge differences that attract ions to specific regions of the bone, namely those under greatest stress, in order to build up the region to handle the applied load. Research on the utilization of these properties in cement in order to increase adaptability was studied along with 1) the inherent electric properties of the cement itself and 2) considered the introduction of a different polymer or ceramic within the cement to impart piezoelectricity and streaming potential.
