  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • The developement of novel scaffolds for tissue engineering with a range of structural and mechanical properties 

    Haugh, Matthew George (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2009)
    Tissue engineering (or regenerative medicine) is defined as the application of scientific principles to the synthesis of living tissues using bioreactors, cells, scaffolds, growth factors, or a combination (Rose and Oreffo, ...
  • The development of a surface acoustic wave strain sensor 

    Donohoe, Brian (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2011)
    Multi sensors networks are becoming increasingly prevalent in modern engineering applications. In multi sensor networks, wireless sensors are preferred over traditional wired methods. Sensors based upon the surface acoustic ...
  • The development of a vibro-acoustic model of the human ear 

    McAvoy, G. J. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 1995)
  • The development of an active implantable neural probe system for chronic use 

    Frey, Laura Constance (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2017)
    The alleviation of symptoms of debilitating neural conditions via neural probes is an increasingly important area of research. However, the effectiveness of these probes decreases over time due to the formation of a glial ...
  • The effects of a sliding air bubble on heat transfer from an inclined surface 

    Donnelly, Brian (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2011)
    An investigation into the effect of a single sliding air bubble on heat transfer from a submerged, inclined surface has been performed. It is known that bubbles, both vapour and gas, can increase heat transfer rates from ...
  • The fatigue behaviour of three-dimensional stress concentrations 

    Bellett, Daniel (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2003)
    The fatigue behaviour of complex three-dimensional notched components is a subject of great practical interest to industrial engineers. Unfortunately, the analysis of this type of feature presents problems for most assessment ...
  • The influence of chevrons on the turbulent characteristics of jets 

    Kennedy, John (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2010)
    To minimize the significant environmental impact of air travel a reduction in noise pollution from jet engines is required. This has led to a renewed focus on active and passive techniques which modify the turbulence ...
  • The mechanics of wound closure for laparoscopic surgery 

    Lyons, Mathew (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2014)
    The increase in popularity of laparoscopic surgery over the past 25 years has led to a greater importance of reducing the incidence of complications associated with the surgery. Development of a hernia at a trocar port ...
  • The relationship between blood perfusion and thermal measurements at the skin surface 

    Nicholson, Christopher P. B. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2006)
    Blood perfusion is defined as the volumetric flow rate of blood through a given volume of tissue. Blood perfusion measurements are an important clinical indicator for many medical conditions but to date there is no cost ...
  • The relationship between micro-structure and mechanical behaviour in passive skeletal muscle 

    Takaza, Michael (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2014)
    This thesis presents and discusses investigative work performed on characterising the behavioural response of skeletal muscle tissue that was subjected to large deformations. The passive mechanical properties of muscle ...
  • Three-dimensional vortex particle-in-cell technique 

    Cox, Damien (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2004)
  • Time domain calculation of noise generated by a propeller in a flow 

    Carley, Michael (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 1997)
    In this thesis, the problem of calcultaing the noise from an acoustically subsonic aircraft propeller is approached using a "moving medium" method. An established theory of noise generation by rigid bodies in motion is ...
  • Time-resolved noise source analysis in subsonic turbulent jets 

    Breakey, David E. S. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2014)
  • Tissue engineering scaled-up anatomically shaped osteochondral constructs for joint resurfacing 

    Mesallati, Tariq (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2014)
    Partial and total joint replacements are the only surgical procedures currently available to treat articular cartilage degeneration associated with degenerative diseases such as osteoarthritis (OA). While these procedures ...
  • Towards 3D bioprinting of anatomically accurate, mechanically reinforced cartilage templates for biological joint resurfacing 

    CRITCHLEY, SUSAN (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Discipline of Mechanical & Manuf. Eng, 2018)
    Osteoarthritis (OA) is a pervasive disease worldwide which affects the articular cartilage and the underlying bone in synovial joints such as the knee. Currently, the only treatment for a severely degenerated knee joint ...
