Characterization of the Atherosclerotic Plaque Tissue

Phani Kumari Paritala; Tejasri Yarlagadda; Jessica Benitez Mendieta; Jiaqiu Wang; YuanTong Gu; Zhiyong Li; Prasad K.D.V. Yarlagadda

Volume 11, Issue 5 , May 2020, , Pages 1-7


  Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the leading causes of morbidity and mortality globally. Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory CVD associated with the accumulation of plaque activated by the complex interactions between systemic, hemodynamic and biological factors. Thus, identification of plaque ...  Read More

Mechanical properties of hydroxyapatite scaffolds produced by gel-casting and combination gel-casting/polymer foams infiltration

Jazmín I. González; Diana M. Escobar; Claudia P. Ossa

Volume 9, Issue 4 , April 2018, , Pages 266-274


  Hydroxyapatite is one of the appropriate materials for hard tissue engineering because it is the inorganic structural constituent of bones and teeth, and hydroxyapatite has been evaluated to compare the mechanical properties, processing as scaffolds to evaluate the influence of porosity, since the elastic ...  Read More

A comparative investigation of mechanical and tribological properties of multilayered CVD-diamond coatings: effect of boron doping

Kaleem Ahmad Najar; Nazir Ahmad Sheikh; M. A. Shah

Volume 8, Issue 9 , September 2017, , Pages 932-938


  In the present work, smooth boron-doped (BD) and undoped multilayered diamond coating systems (MDCS) with top layer nanocrystallinity were deposited on chemically etched cemented tungsten carbide (WC-6%Co) substrates, using hot filament chemical vapour deposition (HFCVD) technique. Both coatings were ...  Read More

Structural, Corrosion And Mechanical Properties Of Sputtered Deposited Chromium Tungsten Nitride (Cr1-xWxN) Nanocomposite Thin Films

Ravi Prakash; R. Jayaganthan;Davinder Kaur

Volume 7, Issue 9 , September 2016, , Pages 723-729


  Chromium tungsten nitride (Cr1-xWxN) thin films were successfully deposited on the silicon (100) substrate using dc magnetron reactive co-sputtering. The structural, surface morphological, electrochemical and mechanical properties were studied using X-ray diffraction, field emission-scanning electron ...  Read More

Nanoindentation Shows Uniform Local Mechanical Properties Across Melt Pools And Layers Produced By Selective Laser Melting Of AlSi 10Mg Alloy

Nicola M. Everitt; Nesma T. Aboulkhair; Ian Maskery; Chris J. Tuck; Ian Ashcroft

Volume 7, Issue 1 , January 2016, , Pages 13-16


  Single track and single layer AlSi 10Mg has been produced by selective laser melting (SLM) of alloy powder on an AlSi12 cast substrate. The SLM technique produced a cellular-dendritic ultra-fined grained microstructure. Chemical composition mapping and nanoindentation showed higher hardness in the SLM ...  Read More

Recycled Plastic Material Properties Defined By Nanoindentation

Zdenka Prochazkova; Vlastimil Kralik; Jiri Nemecek; Michal Sejnoha

Volume 7, Issue 1 , January 2016, , Pages 78-82


  Introduction of recycled plastic materials in structural applications such as bridges, retaining walls or railway sleepers requires a proper identification of necessary material properties. Given similarities in the microstructure of various structural elements we limit our attention to beams having ...  Read More

Fabrication And Characterization Of SWCNT- Reinforced Polyester Nanocomposites Using Tensile Test And Nanoindentation Techniques

Minh-Tai Le;Shyh-Chour Huang

Volume 6, Issue 8 , August 2015, , Pages 711-716


  The main objective of this work is to conduct a manufacturing experiment on a single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT)/polyester nanocomposite for characterization of its mechanical properties using a tensile test and nanoindentation techniques. Experimental specimens were made under identical conditions ...  Read More

Effect Of Alumina Reinforcing Fillers In BisGMA-based Resin Composites For Dental Applications

Sanjay Thorat; Alberto Diaspro; Marco Salerino

Volume 4, Issue 1 , January 2013, , Pages 15-21


  A photo-polymerizable resin based on bisphenol-A-glycidyldimethacrylate monomer was loaded at both 10 and 50% by weight with particles of alumina of size scales in the 10 micrometers and submicrometer order, termed micro-alumina and nano-alumina, respectively. After curing, the viscoelastic properties ...  Read More
