Modeling of catastrophic disruption requires understanding the processes of dynamic failure and fragmentation. This paper summarizes current mechanisms and models for dynamic failure, strength, and fragmentation, reviewing these from a mechanics perspective and with an emphasis on making links to...
A mathematical model to capture complex microstructure orientation on insect wings.
Microstructures on insect wings can promote directional drop shedding, and the local orientation of these structures is expected to facilitate drop removal. However, microstructures may exhibit very different orientations at different locations on the wing. Using the march fly Penthetria...
A new ductility exhaustion model for high temperature low cycle fatigue life prediction of turbine disk alloysDownload
Based on ductility exhaustion theory and the generalized energy-based damage parameter, a new viscosity-based life prediction model is introduced to account for the mean strain/stress effects in the low cycle fatigue regime. The loading waveform parameters and cyclic hardening effects are also...
Reproduction of anatomical structures by rapid prototyping has proven to be a valid adjunct for craniofacial surgery, providing alternative methods to produce prostheses and development of surgical guides. The aim of this study was to introduce a methodology to fabricate asymmetric human...
An investigation into the mechanical characteristics of select self-ligated brackets at a series of clinically relevant maximum torquing angles: Loading and unloading curves and bracket deformationDownload
Edgewise orthodontic treatment utilizes a force couple in order to achieve labial–lingual tooth angulation. Two self-ligating brackets (Damon Q and Speed) were examined across a range of clinically relevant torques in order to assess the loading and unloading curves and bracket deformation. A...
In the present study, ejecta dynamics techniques are used to investigate the ballistic response of shear thickening particle suspensions as a means of assessing the particle hardness and the role of interparticle friction during penetration. Through particle material variations, the role of...
The dynamic fragmentation of gabbro and granitoid tiles, and coarser and finer grained granitoid blocks have been examined for impact energies of 21–6180 J. Intra-grain fragmentation and inter-granular frictional melting were observed to be common features of the fragmentation process....
The rate-dependent compressive response and resulting fragmentation characteristics of dry ox cortical bone and cyanoacrylate-based cortical bone surrogate material was investigated in two material orientations. Tests were conducted under quasi-static (10−3 s−1) and dynamic (103 s−1) loading in...
By adapting the Föppl-von Kàrmàn equation, which describes the deformation of a thin elastic membrane, we present an analysis of the buckling pattern of a thin, very viscous fluid layer subject to shear in an axisymmetric geometry. A linear stability analysis yields a differential eigenvalue...
Although a number of cytoskeletal derangements have been described in the setting of traumatic axonal injury (TAI), little is known of early structural changes that may serve to initiate a cascade of further axonal degeneration. Recent work by the authors has examined conformational changes in...
