Gravity currents propagating up a slope in a two-layer fluid
Gravity currents produced by partial-depth lock-release and travelling along the base of a two-layer stratified ambient are investigated as they propagate along a rising slope. The initial gravity current front speed is found to be consistent with a theory adapted from Shin et al. [“Gravity...
Measurement Accuracy and Reliability of Tooth Length on Conventional and CBCT Reconstructed Panoramic RadiographsDownload
Introduction: This in vivo study assessed accuracy and reliability of tooth length measurements obtained from conventional panoramic radiographs and CBCT panoramic reconstructions to that of a digital caliper (gold standard). Methods: The sample consisted of subjects who had CBCT and conventional...
Dynamic Behavior of an Ordinary Chondrite: the Effects of Microstructure on Strength, Failure and FragmentationDownload
Knowledge of the relationships between microstructure, stress-state and failure mechanisms is important in the development and validation of numerical models simulating large-scale impact events. In this study, we investigate the effects of microstructural constituent phases and defects on the...
Experimentally Determined Mechanical Properties of, and Models for, the Periodontal Ligament: Critical Review of Current LiteratureDownload
Introduction. This review is intended to highlight and discuss discrepancies in the literature of the periodontal ligament’s (PDL) mechanical properties and the various experimental approaches used to measure them. Methods. Searches were performed on biomechanical and orthodontic publications (in...
Effect of Ligation Method on Maxillary Arch Force / Moment Systems for a Simulated Lingual Incisor MalalignmentDownload
Introduction: The objectives of this study were to determine whether there is a difference in the magnitude of forces and moments produced by elastic ligation when compared to passive ligation, and whether these forces and moments propagate differently along the arch for the two ligation types. A...
Two dimensional (2D) tubular braided composites consist of textile fibers imbedded in a resin matrix. Braid geometry and void content will affect the mechanical behavior of the tubular braided composite samples. In this study, tubular braid samples were assessed using micro X-ray computed...
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...
Multi-Objective Optimization Framework for Landmark Measurement Error Correction in Three Dimensional Cephalometric TomographyDownload
The purpose of this study is to minimize errors that occur when using a four vs six landmark superimpositioning method in the cranial base to define the co-ordinate system. Cone beam CT volumetric data from ten patients were used for this study. Co-ordinate system transformations were performed....
Computational Analysis of Gas Transport in Fuel Cell Catalyst Layer under Dry and Partially Saturated ConditionsDownload
A computational study is performed to analyze oxygen transport in dry and wet stochastically reconstructed catalyst layers (CLs). CL stochastic reconstructions are generated using random penetrating spheres of a given particle size that agree with the statistical correlation functions of a...
