  • Deciphering the Molecular Mechanisms of Stem Cell Mechanotransduction: A New Avenue for the Development of Therapeutics for Osteoporosis 

    CORRIGAN, MICHELE (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Discipline of Mechanical & Manuf. Eng, 2019)
    Osteoporosis is characterised by reduced bone density and weakened bone architecture leading to high fracture risk. The changes in bone result from an imbalance in the bone remodelling cycle whereby the rate of resorption ...
  • Hydrodynamics and heat transfer of laminar pulsating flow in a rectangular channel 

    Blythman, Richard (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2017)
    The exploitation of flow pulsation is a potentially useful technique for enhanced cooling in single-phase cooling systems. This thesis contains parametric analyses of the hydrodynamics and heat transfer of a laminar ...
  • The effect of stress concentrations on fatigue and fracture of 316L stainless steel micro-scale components 

    Wiersma, Susanne Amanda (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2004)
    The aim of this work was to investigate the fatigue and fracture behaviour of microscopic specimens based on a biomedical component (the cardiovascular stent) and to modify existing theories to take account of the observed ...
  • Thermal aspects of the grinding process 

    Walsh, Darren Gerard (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2000)
    Grinding is a commonly used process for material removal. It has been used for a long time mainly as a finishing process, although this situation is changing, with the development of creep feed grinding, and high efficiency ...
  • A new technique for vortex methods in computational fluid dynamics 

    Sweeney, Conor (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2002)
    The random vortex method is a Lagrangian technique which involves solving the stream function-vorticity formulation of the Navier-Stokes equations. Discrete vortex particles, which are created at the surface to satisfy ...
