Effect of thermocycling on the flexural and impact strength of urethane-based and high-impact denture base resins
Objective: Mechanical properties of the acrylic resins used for denture fabrication may be influenced by water and temperature. Thus, the aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of thermocycling on the flexural and ...
Effects of strength training, detraining and retraining in muscle strength, hypertrophy and functional tasks in older female adults
Introduction: Previous studies presented different results regarding the maintenance time of muscular adaptations after strength training and the ability to resume the gains on muscular performance after resumption of the ...
High-Strength Concrete Masonry Walls under Concentric and Eccentric Loadings
(Asce-amer Soc Civil Engineers, 2018-06-01)
Masonry walls and columns are common structural members that typically resist compressive loads, with a number of such members being required to resist combined axial load and out-of-plane bending due to direct out-of-plane ...
Experimental Study On Mechanical Properties Of Rub-fibre Reinforced Concrete
(International Journal of Chemical Sciences, 2016)
Free-running circadian rhythms of muscle strength, reaction time, and body temperature in totally blind people
Light is the major synchronizer of circadian rhythms. In the absence of light, as for totally blind people, some variables, such as body temperature, have an endogenous period that is longer than 24 h and tend to be free ...

Shear modulus G(0) and its correlations with matric suction, unconfined compression strength and tensile strength of an unsaturated residual soil
(Ios Press, 2015-01-01)
Several studies have been developed aiming to understand the behavior of saturated natural soils under small strains. A few studies have considered unsaturated soils, in most cases compacted soils and, eventually, disregarding ...
Effects of high and low volume of strength training on muscle strength, muscle volume and lipid profile in postmenopausal women
(Elsevier B.V., 2014-01-01)
Changes in lipid profile are considered a risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD), especially in postmenopausal woman who have been associated with age-related loss of muscle mass. The beneficial role of aerobic ...
Effect of wrist position on young adults pinch grip control
(Cuba Editora, 2015-01-01)
Pinch grip is used in a large number of handling activities that require precision and control of an object. The position of the upper arm joints affects the fingers force production in order to handle the object. This ...
