Evaluation and prediction of the tensile properties of continuous fiber-reinforced 3D printed structures composite structuresDownload
Three dimensional (3D) printing is a technique conventionally used to manufacture prototypes. Commercial desktop 3D printers have become available which produce functional 3D printed parts. The MarkOne by Mark Forged manufactures printed structures reinforced with continuous Carbon, Fiberglass or...
Purpose: This paper evaluates the material properties and dimensional accuracy of a MakerBot Replicator II desktop 3D printer. Design Methodology: A design of experiments (DOE) test protocol was applied to determine the effect of the following variables on the material properties of 3D printed...
Purpose – This paper aims to evaluate the material properties and dimensional accuracy of a MakerBot Replicator 2 desktop 3D printer. Design/methodology/approach – A design of experiments (DOE) test protocol was applied to determine the effect of the following variables on the material properties...
The effect of short fiber reinforcements on the mechanical properties of cement has been examined using a splitting tensile – digital image correlation (DIC) measurement method. Three short fiber reinforcement materials have been used in this study: fiberglass, nylon, and polypropylene. The...
Back pain is a prevalent condition affecting much of the population at one time or the other. Complications, including neurological ones, can result from missed or mismanaged spinal abnormalities. These complications often result in serious patient injury and require more medical treatment....
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...
FEM Simulation of Non-Progressive Growth from Asymmetric Loading and Vicious Cycle Theory: Scoliosis Study Proof of ConceptDownload
Scoliosis affects about 1-3% of the adolescent population, with 80% of cases being idiopathic. There is currently a lack of understanding regarding the biomechanics of scoliosis, current treatment methods can be further improved with a greater understanding of scoliosis growth patterns. The...
A tubular braided composite bone cast for improving the efficiency and quality of bone fracture treatment is investigated. Finite element analysis was used to evaluate stress concentrations in fracture sites supported with plate and tubular casts. The stress in a plated bone is 768 % of that in a...
Braiding is a manufacturing technique in which material yarns are repeatedly interlaced to create a preform. The preform is impregnated with a polymer matrix to create a braided composite. Several studies have investigated the tensile, compressive and torsional behaviour of braided composites and...
Investigation into the effects of stainless steel ligature ties on the mechanical characteristics of conventional and self-ligated brackets subjected to torqueDownload
Objective: Torque is applied to orthodontic brackets in order to alter the buccal-lingual angulation of a tooth. One factor that can affect torque is the ligation mode used to retain the archwire in the bracket slot. The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of stainless steel...
