Comparison of compressive strength between three different plates for mandibular angle fractures fixation
The present study aims to compare three types of internal fixation for fractures of the mandibular angle. Mechanical testing was performed on replicas of polyurethane hemimandibles sectioned at the angle region to simulate ...
Coupling between Transverse Vibrations and Instability Phenomena of Plates Subjected to In-Plane Loading
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2013-01)
As it is known, the problems of free transverse vibrations and instability under in-plane loads of a plate are two different technological situations that have similarities in their approach to elastic solution. In fact, ...
An extended BEM formulation for plates reinforced by rectangular beams
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2009)
This article presents a BEM formulation developed particularly for analysis of plates reinforced by rectangular beams. This is an extended version of a Previous paper that only took into account bending effects. The problem ...
Bridging plate development for treatment of segmental bone defects of the canine mandible: Mechanical tests and finite element method
With regard to the canine mandible, a mistaken concept of application is to assume that systemic plate-bone resistance is provided by the implant so that biomechanical position could be ignored. Because the alveolar border ...
Development and mechanical properties of a locking T-plate
This study aimed to develop a locking T-plate and to evaluate its mechanical properties in synthetic models. A titanium 2.7mm T-plate was designed with a shaft containing three locked screw holes and one dynamic compression ...
Similitudes for the structural response of flexural plates
This article presents an investigation into exact and distorted similitudes and the related scaling laws for the analysis of the dynamic response of rectangular flexural plates. The response of a given model in similitude ...
