Non-Linear Passive Elastic Properties of the Left Ventricular Myocardium: Application of Finite Element Analysis to 3-D Geometry Obtained from Ultrasound Images
A finite element (FE) analysis and an optimization algorithm were employed to assess the nonlinear passive elastic properties of left ventricular myocardium in a canine mode. The three-dimensional...

Effect of Stenotic Geometry on Blood Flow Behavior
The dynamic characteristics of the blood flow is affected by the area reduction of stenosis. To estimate the severity of stenosis, the information about the geometry should also be accounted....

Biomechanics of Local Articular Incongruities
Abnormalities of intra-articular contact near sites of local surface incongruity are frequently associated with secondary osteoarthrosis. We here review a series of experimental and computational...

Dynamic Behavior of a Non-Linear Cable Truss
The equations of motion of a geometrically non-linear cable truss are presented. The behavior of the truss subject to harmonic excitation is studied....

Elastic Stability of Non-Rectangular Plates
Non-rectangular plates may have infinite number of geometric configurations. Idealized pattern of practical shapes is chosen to be a sample for these plates. The present paper is concerned...

Methodology for Developing an Engineering Solution for Web Crippling
This paper describes the methodology used to develop an engineering solution for web crippling of aluminum trapezoidal sections. The development has two steps. The functional form for...

Analysis of Geometric Mispositioning in a Vertical Pile Group
A straightforward procedure is described whereby an approximate, three-dimensional, nonlinear model for the analysis of pile groups is used to simulate errors in major group parameters...

Stochastic Response Analysis of Nonlinear Plane Trusses with Spatial Variability
This study considers responses of geometrically and materially nonlinear plane truss structures with spatially uncertain system parameters, subjected to random excitations. A stochastic...

Measurement of Reaeration Coefficient with the Soluble Solids Probe
The results of analytical and experimental studies are presented, showing that the proposed method for indirect determination of gas transfer coefficients at gas-liquid interfaces, based...

Large Deflection of Simply Supported Inplane Loading Rectangular Plate Under Uniform Random Pressure
The procedure for obtaining an approximate solution for the mean-square deflection as well as maximum mean-square stress of geometrically nonlinear rectangular plate with arbitary power...

Nonlinearities and Imperfections in Creep Stability
The effects of material and geometric nonlinearities and imperfections on the 'safe-load-limit' and the 'safe-service-period' of structures...

Relationship Between Scour Depth and Bend Radius of Curvature on the Red River
Studies of bank and bend processes were undertaken on the Red River between Index, Arkansas and Shreveport, Louisiana in connection with the navigation project on the river downstream...

Application of Geometric Databases and Visualization in Support of Construction Activities

Designing for Control of Ice Conditions in Marinas
Each marina or small-craft harbor experiencing ice during the winter months must be designed for site specific conditions. These conditions are governed by environmental factors (geology,...

Experimental Verification of the Theoretical Solution of Laminated Glass Units

Crack Growth Stability in Ice
The mechanics of stable, time dependent crack growth as a function of geometry and increasing crack length in saline an freshwater columnar ice are examined in this paper. Experimental...
