Development of a novel fatigue test method for cord-rubber composites
Fatigue testing of cord-rubber composites is of significant interest as components manufactured from these materials are typically subjected to repeated loading during service. In this work, initial fatigue tests on a ...
Modelling the crush behaviour of thermoplastic composites
Thermoplastic composites are likely to emerge as the preferred solution for meeting the high-volume production demands of passenger road vehicles. Substantial effort is currently being directed towards the development of ...
3D models of chondrocytes within biomimetic scaffolds: Effects of cell deformation from loading regimens.
BACKGROUND: Mechanical conditioning has been widely used to attempt to enhance chondrocyte metabolism for the evolution of functionally competent cartilage. However, although upregulation of proteoglycans have been reported ...
