  • Composition and mechanical properties of osteoarthritic subchondral trabecular tibial bone 

    Gleeson, John Patrick (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2007)
    Osteoarthritis is a disease that has been characterised historically by the focal destruction of cartilaginous tissue and hence, is defined as such. However, recent investigations have brought this pathology into contention. ...
  • Computational investigations of mesenchymal stem cell ageing in mechanobiological simulations of tissue differentiation 

    Xue, Feng (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2014)
    Musculoskeletal health is a major determinant of the quality of life for the increasing aged population groups in our society. Improved healthcare is essential to ensure successful ageing and enhanced musculoskeletal health ...
  • Computational investigations of variability in mechanobiological simulations of tissue differentiation 

    Khayyeri, Hanifeh (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2012)
    Theories of mechanoregulation have been integrated in computational models of mechanobiological experiments to test hypotheses of mechanobiology. It is believed that computational models need to be improved by considering ...
  • Computational simulation of the mechanobiological response of arterial tissue 

    Boyle, Colin James (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2012)
    Ischaemic heart disease, causing restriction of arterial blood flow to the heart tissue, can be treated with mechanical revascularisation treatments such as balloon angioplasty and stent implantation. One remaining limitation ...
  • Cooling by high speed air jet in orthogonal machining operations 

    Bareggi, Andrea (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2012)
    Changing environmental awareness has led manufacturing industry to give critical consideration to the use of conventional coolants and traditional cooling techniques in machining processes. Current research shows that ...
