A 3D Continuum Finite Element Muscle Model for the Investigation of Cervical Spine Load-Sharing Mechanisms and Injury Assessment during Impact Loading ScenariosDownload
The mechanical behavior of the individual cervical tissues as well as the head-neck complex kinematics plays a very important role in proper functioning of the cervical spine and is a key factor in more appropriate understanding of injury mechanism, prevention, detection, control and treatment....
A New Material Characterization Approach for Evaluating the Deformational Capacity of Onshore PipelinesDownload
The buckling instability phenomenon in shell structures is inherently influenced by a variety of parameters which may exhibit direct nonlinear relationships with the resultant stress and consequent deformation in the structure, as well as complex interrelationships, under various loading...
Calibration of Fatigue Design Factors and Fatigue Life Reliability of Steel Highway Bridges Using WIM DatabasesDownload
Fatigue life assessment of steel highway bridges is crucial to maintain their safety. Researches are required to quantify uncertainties in loading, resistance, fatigue life prediction and improvement techniques. This study calibrates some fatigue code parameters and models fatigue loading...
Osteoarthritis is one of the most common medical conditions, mainly affecting older adults. The majority of cases are found within the hip or knee joint however, small joints, including the ankle, finger and facet joints are affected as well. The usual treatment for osteoarthritis is surgery...
Effect of Z-shaped Steel Plate Connectors on Out-of-Plane Flexural Behaviour of Precast Insulated Concrete PanelsDownload
Precast Insulated Concrete Panels (PICP) consist of an insulation layer sandwiched between two concrete layers. The concrete layers of PICP are attached to each other by interlayer mechanical connectors. These panels are widely used in North America as cladding system to provide thermal...
Effects of Nucleus Size and Position on the Response of the Lumbar Functional Spinal Unit L4-L5 to Complex Loading: Finite Element AnalysisDownload
The response of the lumbar spine to mechanical load, a major contributing factor in Low Back Pain (LBP), depends on the geometry of the spinal structures. As nucleus size and position vary among individuals, along the spine, and with aging, understanding the effects of inter-individual variation...
Failure Pressure Prediction of Cracks in Corrosion Defects in Pipelines using eXtended Finite Element MethodDownload
Pipelines are one of the safest means of oil and gas transportation. In Canada, 97% of all oil and gas production is transported by pipelines. However, their increasing age can constitute integrity concerns due to the presence of defects such as cracks, welds, dents, and corrosion. These defects...
INITIAL IMPERFECTIONS OF HIGH STRENGTH UOE MANUFACTURED STEEL PIPES AND THEIR EFFECTS ON PIPE BUCKLINGDownload
The use of high strength steel pipes in the pipeline industry is increasing due to its cost reduction benefits. The development of high steel grades has enabled the manufacturing of line pipes with large diameter to thickness ratios. The high strength large diameter pipes are commonly...
Investigation on the Differences in the Mechanical Properties of Fresh, Frozen, and Vitrified Porcine MenisciDownload
The medial and lateral menisci are two semilunar-shaped fibrocartilaginous tissues in the knee that serve multiple important biomechnical functions. While removal of the menisci leads to progressive degenerative changes in the knee, meniscal transplantation is explored to restore normal knee...
Markerless 3D Assessment of Severity and Progression of Scoliosis Using Surface Topography on Isolated Back ScansDownload
The objectives of the thesis were to: 1. Determine if open source software can be use in markerless asymmetry analysis of surface topography. 2. Determine if isolated back scans can be used in markerless asymmetry analysis of surface topography. Markerless asymmetry analysis of surface...
