Experimental Analysis of Fracture Processes in Concrete
(The Brazilian Society of Mechanical Sciences, 2001)
A geostatistical approach to estimating the parameters of a 3D Cox-Boolean discrete fracture network from 1D and 2D sampling observations
(Elsevier Ltd, 2019)
© 2018 Elsevier Ltd This work addresses the problem of parameter inference in the Cox-Boolean discrete fracture network model, in which the fractures are represented by flat discs with random orientations and diameters ...
State-of-the-Art in Ankle Fracture Management in Chile.
(Elsevier Inc., 2016)
he ankle represents the most commonly injured weightbearing joint in the human body. They are typically the result of low-energy, rotational injury mechanisms. However, ankle fractures represent a spectrum of injury patterns ...
From continuum mechanics to fracture mechanics: the strong discontinuity approach
(Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd., 2002-09)
The paper deals with the strong discontinuity approach and shows the links with the decohesive fracture mechanics provided by that approach. On the basis of 1D continuum damage models it is shown that, by introducing some ...
Fracture and failure behavior of jute fabric reinforced polypropylene. Effect of the interface modification
(Smithers Information Ltd, 2006-12)
The tensile fracture and failure behaviour of jute cloth (25 wt.%) reinforced polypropylene (PP) composites were studied as a function of certain interface modification procedures. The latter covered esterification of the ...
Effect of the number of screws on the stability of locking mandibular reconstruction plates
Atrophic mandible fractures are frequently a challenge to stabilize. This study evaluated, through mechanical testing in vitro, the number of locking screws that is sufficient to withstand loading when applied with a locking ...
