Naturally-colored silks are silk fibers with natural pigments inside, which are produced by silkworms fed with a dye-free diet. Wild silkworms, such as Antheraea pernyi, A. yamamai and Saturniidae, are known for producing silk cocoons with brown, green, and golden yellow colors, respectively....
This thesis presents recent developments in direct numerical simulations of fluid-structure interaction occurring in biological systems, with particular interest in the modeling of particle deposition within the human respiratory system. Two numerical techniques are proposed. The first one is...
Melenka, Garrett W., Carey, Jason P.
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...
Influences of Fibers on Expansive Shotcrete Mixture Consisting of Calcium Sulfoaluminate, Portland Cement, and Calcium SulfateDownload
Shotcrete is often used by the mining industry as rock support, tunnel lining, and concrete repair. However, cracking within shotcrete is common, which delays production schedules and increases maintenance costs. To reduce cracking, expansive shotcrete mixtures are often used. While several...
Non-digestible fibers and dietary interventions: alternative approaches for the treatment of inflammatory bowel diseaseDownload
Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), collectively called inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), are associated with chronic intestinal inflammation, affecting approximately 0.7 % of Canadians. Intestinal microbial dysbiosis have been related to IBD. Therapies that manipulate gut...
