Ankylosaur (Dinosauria, Ankylosauria) foot morphology and an assessment of the function of the limbs and feetDownload
Morphology and function of ankylosaur dinosaur limbs are explored and analyzed using comparative morphology and finite element analysis. Reconstruction of the forelimb and posture of Pinacosaurus grangeri matches well with trackways attributed to ankylosaurs. A flexed humerus angled away from the...
Ductile and brittle failure behaviors of semi-crystalline polymers such as high density polyethylene (HDPE) were investigated under uni-axial tensile loading at various test conditions. The first part of the thesis examines the influence of aspect ratio of rectangular cross-section on the...
A promising approach to the development of an integrated system for magnetic resonance imaging-guided radiotherapy involves the rigid coupling of a medical linear accelerator to a rotating biplanar magnet assembly. Through near real-time volumetric imaging during irradiation, this hybrid system...
Buried steel pipelines are widely used in transportation and distribution of oil/gas products over long distance. The changing geo-environmental conditions over the line may subject the pipelines to unforeseen load combinations and prompt the failure and loss of containment of the pipelines that...
Talar collapse results in incongruity of the ankle joint, resulting in pain, stiffness, and disability. In the past, standard treatment has been surgical fusion or total ankle arthroplasty. These treatments can result in a loss of motion and function of the foot, as well as pseudarthrosis. A...
