Crack-path field and strain-injection techniques in computational modeling of propagating material failure
The work presents two new numerical techniques devised for modeling propagating material failure, i.e. cracks in fracture mechanics or slip-lines in soil mechanics. The first one is termed crack-path-field technique and ...
Clinical failure after Dresden repair of mid-substance Achilles tendon rupture: human cadaveric testing
The purpose of this study was to describe the angle of clinical failure during cyclical mobilization exercises in the Achilles tendon of human cadaveric specimens that were repaired using the Dresden technique and FiberWire(A ...
Aircraft interior failure pattern recognition utilizing text mining and neural networks
Being more competitive is routine in the aeronautical sector. Airline competitiveness is affected by such factors as time, price, reliability, availability, safety, technology, quality, and information management. To remain ...
Chronic renal failure in male and female rats
Gender influences the progression of chronic renal failure (CRF). We studied male (M) and female (F) Wistar rats for 90 days: castrated (CMc, n=7; CFc, n=6) and non castrated controls (CM, n=9; CF, n=6); castrated (CRFMc, ...
