Laparoscopic ventral and incisional hernia repair (LVIHR) has become a common procedure because of its feasibility and safety, but it is not free of complications. Acute and chronic post-operative pain and bleeding caused by traumatic fixation of the mesh are frequently prolonging the hospital stay. The aim of this study was to analyze the behavior...

Ring opening polymerization of ε-caprolactone and tetrahydrofuran were carried out by bulk polymerization technique in the presence of a drug molecule as an initiator at 160 °C for 2 h under nitrogen atmosphere. The synthesized homo and diblock copolymer was characterized by various analytical techniques. Further, the sustainable drug release study...

This paper presents a study of the tensile strength of unsaturated soil by a DEM model in a novel uniaxial tensile test device. For validation and comparison, traditional triaxial shear test of unsaturated soil are also conducted. In the DEM model, the capillary effects and some other cementation effects are modelled by a bond, whose strength is a ...

The formation of intermetallic phases consisting of intermetallic compounds during welding of aluminium/titanium joints is a challenge to the welding processes, in the last two decades. Friction welding is attempted to reduce the formation of intermetallic phases through inserting the interlayer material. In recent years, the number of approaches h...

The contribution deals with mechanical simulation of clamps for overhead powerline AlFe conductors. The process of pressed joint creation for two AlFe conductors and tensile test of such system are simulated using ANSYS software. The obtained results are compared to given tensile strength of the clamp.

The application of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) Multidirectional (MD) laminates in aircraft structure have motivated the manufacturers to tailor the mechanical strength in desired directions. The complex stress field owing to multiple orientations with the loading direction increases the intricacy of failure analysis. Hence, the macroscop...

[email protected], a phosphate adsorbent, was synthesized in two steps: the immobilization of an amine group onto polyacrylonitrile fiber (PANF) and the adsorption of an iron ion on aminated PANF (APANF). The amination degree of the PANF was adjusted considering its mechanical properties. The Fe2O3 on the surface of the APANF played a role as a phosphate...

Considering that the biomechanical factors underlying aortic dissection remain poorly understood as does the rationale for the anatomic localization of the dissection channel, we have attempted to determine the regional distribution of delamination/tensile strengths of ascending thoracic aortic aneurysm wall tissue. Whole aneurysms were taken from ...
