We experimentally investigate the behaviour of a line-source plume falling through a finite two-layer stratified ambient where the depth of the upper ambient layer increases in time. Laboratory observations suggest one of two possible flow regimes depending on the value of 𝜆 , which represents...
Braces are used by orthodontists to correct the misalignment of teeth in the mouth. Archwire rotation is a particular procedure used to correct tooth inclination. Wire rotation can result in deformation to the orthodontic brackets, and an orthodontic torque simulator has been designed to examine...
Archwire rotation is used in orthodontic treatment to alter the labiolingual orientation of a tooth. Measurement of the 3-dimensional (3D) motion of the orthodontic brackets requires a new configuration of the orthodontic torque simulator. The orthodontic torque simulator was coupled with a...
This study investigates the effects of the processing-induced defect population on the dynamic compressive strength and failure of a hot-pressed boron carbide. Quantitative microscopic analysis was used to determine the distributions of three types of processing-induced inhomogeneities: aluminum...
We report upon experimental and analytical investigations of filling box flows in non-uniform porous media characterized by a sudden change in permeability. The porous medium consists of two layers separated by a horizontal permeability jump and is initially filled with light ambient fluid. A...
The effect of perturbations on resistance to sliding in second order moments comparing two different bracket typesDownload
Orthodontic literature has shown all ligation methods to behave similarly in the clinical situation; however, the reasoning behind this still requires further investigation. A novel frictional device able to measure forces at the level of the bracket along with a custom perturbation device was...
The Effects of Microstructure and Confinement on the Compressive Fragmentation of an Advanced CeramicDownload
We investigate the rate-dependent compressive failure and fragmentation of a hot-pressed boron carbide, under both uniaxial and confined biaxial compression, using quantitative fragment analysis coupled with quantitative microstructural analysis. Two distinct fragmentation regimes are observed,...
We present a linear theory of lipid membranes which accommodates the effects of intra-membrane viscosity into the model of deformations. Within the Monge parameterization, a linearized version of the shape equation describing membrane morphology is derived. Admissible boundary conditions are...
