Mechanics of an elastic solid reinforced with bidirectional fiber in finite plane elastostatics: complete analysisDownload
A continuum-based model is presented for the mechanics of bidirectional composites subjected to finite plane deformations. This is framed in the development of a constitutive relation within which the constraint of material incompressibility is augmented. The elastic resistance of the fibers is...
Clinical variability in arch wires: A preliminary study evaluating mechanical and surface characteristics of two different sized rectangular stainless steel wiresDownload
Vena, Alessandro, Carey, Jason, Badawi, Hisham
Experimental characterization of arch wires has been performed in many previous studies; however with the advent of new arch wire materials being introduced, some new experimental methods and characterization are required. Since literature is available for comparison, this paper examines...

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...
Sensitivity Analysis for Plane Orientation in Three-Dimensional Cephalometric Analysis based on Superimposition of Serial CBCT ImagesDownload
Major, Paul W., Lagravère, Manuel O., Carey, Jason P.
Objectives: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the potential errors associated with superimposition of serial cone beam CT (CBCT) images utilizing reference planes based on cranial base landmarks using a sensitivity analysis. Methods: CBCT images from 62 patients participating in a...

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...

Numerous studies have considered the flow of a rectilinear, high Reynolds number, Boussinesq gravity current through a two-layer stratified ambient, however, far less is known concerning the analogue axisymmetric problem. Whereas in both instances there is the possibility of a dynamic coupling...

Dynamic brittle fragmentation is typically described using analytical and computational approaches for tensile stress-states. However, most fragmentation applications (e.g., impact, blast) involve very large initial compressive stresses and deformations. In this study, the compressive...

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...

The objective of above-elbow myoelectric prostheses is to reestablish the functionality of missing limbs and increase the quality of life of amputees. By using electromyography (EMG) electrodes attached to the surface of the skin, amputees are able to control motors in myoelectric prostheses by...
We examine the transient evolution of a negatively buoyant, laminar plume in an emptying filling box containing a uniform porous medium. In the long time limit, the box is partitioned into two uniform layers of different densities. However, the approach towards steady state is characterized by a...
