  • 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 the development of a novel electro-pneumatic hybrid robot morphology 

    McGinn, Conor L. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2015)
    Existing robot morphologies have typically failed to demonstrate the full range of terrain adaptability, physical practicality and behavioural diversity needed for general-purpose use, as the most suitable morphologies for ...
  • Bubble growth dynamics in nucleate pool boiling with liquid subcooling effects 

    Mat Nawi, Muhad Rozi (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2014)
    Heat transfer in nucleate pool boiling has been characterized by very high dissipated heat fluxes whilst requiring low driving temperature differences. The rate of bubble growth and the subsequent bubble motion has a ...
  • The mechanics of wound closure for laparoscopic surgery 

    Lyons, Matthew (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 ...
  • Engineering tissues with a zonal structure and composition mimicking native articular cartilage 

    Luo, Lu (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2015)
    Engineering cartilage grafts with comparable functionality to the native tissue remains a major challenge in the field of regenerative medicine. The overall goal of this thesis was to engineer a cartilage graft with ...
