  • Quantitative accoustic analysis of inhaler sounds for the objective assessment of inhaler adherence in patients with chronic respiratory diseases 

    Holmes, Martin S. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2016)
    Asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are two of the most prevalent chronic respiratory disorders. Over 800 million people suffer from these diseases and over four million people die annually. Although ...
  • Reconfigurable manufacturing process monitoring systems 

    Morgan, Jeff (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2016)
    Performance measurement is indispensable to manufacturing, due to the fact that if the efficiency of an activity cannot be measured it could not be effectively controlled. Recent trends in process monitoring systems point ...
  • Reconfigurable test execution systems machine and process development 

    MARTIN, CIAN (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Discipline of Mechanical & Manuf. Eng, 2018)
    Reconfigurable manufacturing systems (RMS) are a key enabling technology to meet new challenges in a global market. These emerging products and markets are defined as having short development cycles, being highly customisable ...
  • Recovery factor and conjugate heat transfer for micro jet impingement 

    Lupton, Thomas (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2010)
    Impinging jets are renowned for achieving high rates of heat transfer over extended periods of time. The bulk of the research to date in this area has focused on relatively large diameter jets. However, the current study ...
  • Resonant aeroacoustic source localisation in ducted bluff body flows 

    Finnegan, Shane Leslie (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2011)
  • Responses of bone cells to microinjury 

    Mulcahy, Lauren Elizabeth (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2012)
    Microdamage in bone has been implicated as a principal stimulator of bone remodeling through the release of numerous biochemical factors. Such factors initiate the bone resorbing and bone forming potential of the constitutive ...
  • Simulation of bone fracture and cutting using the theory of critical distances 

    Kasiri Ghahi, Saeid (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2008)
    This work was concerned with the prediction of bone fracture in situations where fracture was initiated in areas of stress concentration. Two conditions were studied: (i) fracture in bones and bone samples weakened by the ...
  • Simulation of microcrack growth and repair in living bone 

    Tisbo, Pietro (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2013)
    As they are the structural components of the body, bones are subjected to the accumulation of damage because of cyclical stress (fatigue). The fatigue damage in bone takes the form of microscopic cracks (microcracks) that ...
  • Simulation of tissue differentation during fracture healing 

    Lacroix, Damien (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2001)
    Fracture healing is a complex biological process during which, repair of the damaged tissues occurs so efficiently that the initial strength and anatomy of the bone are restored. Mechanical loading is believed to greatly ...
  • Spatial presentation of tissue specific extracellular matrix components and growth factors on porous electrospun fibre scaffolds for bone-ligament interface tissue engineering 

    OLVERA, DINORATH PAMELA (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Discipline of Mechanical & Manuf. Eng, 2018)
    In many clinical situations ligament or tendon replacements are required, such as for the surgical replacement of a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). The current ‘gold standard’ treatment is resection of the torn ...
  • Stochastic failure modelling of total hip replacement 

    Galibarov, Pavel E. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2009)
    Failure of total hip replacement (THR) can be a highly variable phenomenon. Many factors of a different nature may affect the outcome of this operation, e.g. loads occuring in the joint, patient geometry, implant design, ...
  • Stress concentrations in bone cement : a critical distance approach 

    Hoey, David (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2009)
    Bone cement is a biomaterial which is used in the fixation of orthopaedic implants. Despite its extensive use it is regarded as the 'weak link' in cemented arthroplasties, fatigue failure of the cement mantle being a major ...
  • Targeted bone remodelling : investigating the scissors model 

    Dooley, Clodagh M. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2013)
    Bone is continually being removed and replaced through the actions of basic multicellular units (BMU). This constant upkeep is necessary to remove microdamage and thus maintain the integrity of the bone. Microdamage forms ...
  • Temporomandibular joint injuries during whiplash 

    Simms, Ciaran. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2000)
    Whiplash injuries occur due to differential accelerations in the human body. Neck injuries are predominant, but a considerable body of clinical evidence suggesting a close relationship between whiplash and temporomandibular ...
  • Tension and compression stress-strain asymmetry in passive skeletal muscle 

    Mohammadkhah, Melika (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2017)
    The general aim of this study is to advance the knowledge of the relationship between the skeletal muscle passive compressive and tensile behaviour, and the microstructure of the muscle through combined experimental, ...
  • The cellular transducer in damage-stimulated bone remodelling 

    Hazenberg, Jan Geert (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2004)
    People with osteoporosis, osteopenia or weight baring joint replacement, due to an altered loading configuration, are more susceptible to microdamage accumulation than normal human beings as are athletes who undertake ...
