The elbow joint in dogs constitutes a complex interaction of three bones, the humerus, radius and ulna. Medial coronoid disease (MCD) is a common cause of lameness in dogs, i.e. fracturing of the most prominent portion of the ulnar joint surface driven in flexion and in pivot against both the humerus and the radius. The cause remains unknown, but prior studies suggest joint incongruency as an ...

Nowadays all branches in modern science and industry tend to solve ever complicating problems. As the result the computational time increases considerably and it become very important to reduce the processing time and use available resources more efficiently. Parallelizing problem proves itself as efficient way to overcome the described problem. In the poster we compare different methods of ...

A solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) is composed of four layers (anode, electrolyte compatibility layer and cathode) of different ceramic materials. The anode layer is produced by tape casting, the remaining layers are deposited by screen-printing. The layers are sintered together at high temperatures. During heating up and cooling down (manufacturing process), stresses are generated in the layers due ...

The use of numerical techniques in PEM fuel cell sensoring represents an advantage of project engineering, reducing the costs and accelerating the manufacturing of prototypes. In this work some numerical responses are shown, relating to numerical sensoring of water and oxygen mole fractions at cathode of a 5 cm² of geometric area PEM fuel cell. The need to recognize a geometric figure of merit ...

Turgor pressure loss and pectin degradation result in texture loss during cooking of plant based materials. To simulate texture loss, a simultaneous heat and moisture transfer, pectin degradation in the cell wall material and solid mechanical model was developed at the microscale using finite elements to predict the homogenized Young’s Modulus of the carrot tissue during heating. The model ...

- Using COMSOL Multiphysics® Acoustics Module: Chondrocytes modeled attached to a plane (to mimic in vivo constraints) are shown to resonate near 5MHz. At resonance, the mechanical energy density in the nucleus is two times higher than in the cytoplasm. - Impact exercise is modeled as traveling pressure pulses and shown to cause cells to vibrate primarily at the resonance frequency. - Two ...

Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is known to alleviate symptoms of some movement disorders and is currently tested for its clinical value in several psychiatric disorders. Although the exact mechanism of DBS is not well understood yet, an activation of white matter structures is the most likely one. The spatial distribution of the electric field originating from implanted DBS electrodes is ...

The loaded underground high voltage cable generates magnetic field with industrial frequency. Depending on the current rating and cable allocation, the magnetic exposure to public area may exceed the requested limit from customer. Extra shielding should then be applied. A primary FEM study shows that aluminum plate has a good shielding effect; the installation condition of the plate can however ...
