Comparison of a novel surgical implant with the volar locking plate for the treatment of distal radius fractures: a mechanical study
Distal radius fractures are the most common osteoporotic fractures among women. The treatment of these fractures has been shifting from a traditional non-operative approach to surgery, using volar locking plate (VLP) ...
Mechanics and FEM simulation of active vibration control in structural systems by using internal mass reconfiguration
Relative motion of different parts of a structure can affect its vibrations that may be amplified or attenuated. If such a motion is properly devised, it can lead to continuous attenuation of vibration and thus be used for ...
Developing an efficient FEM structural simulation of a fan blade off test in a turbofan jet engine
This work develops a methodology for full engine FEA simulation of the fan blade off containment test for a jet engine using LS-Dyna. The fan blade off containment test is a safety requirement involving the intentional ...
The numerical evaluation of multi-piece crankshafts
This work develops a methodology for the FEM simulation of a multi-piece crankshaft. Various simulation models that include press-fit joint contact conditions and complex meshing schemes are examined in order to accurately ...
