Using nodal coordinates as variables for the dimensional synthesis of mechanisms
The method of the lower deformation energy has been successfully used for the synthesis of mechanisms for quite a while. It has shown to be a versatile, yet powerful method for assisting in the design of mechanisms. Until ...
An efficient LDU algorithm for the minimal least squares solution of linear systems
The minimal least squares solutions is a topic of interest due to the broad range of applications of this problem. Although it can be obtained from other algorithms, such as the Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) or the ...
Inspection scheduling based onreliability updating of gas turbinewelded structures
This article presents a novel methodology for the inspection scheduling of gas turbine welded structures, based on reliability calculations and overhaul findings. The model was based on a probabilistic crack propagation ...
Fatigue Design of Dental Implant Assemblies: A Nominal Stress Approach
Fatigue is the most common mechanical failure type in dental implants. ISO 14801 standardizes fatigue testing of dental implants, providing the load-life curve which is most useful for comparing the fatigue behavior of ...
On the Use of a Simplified Slip Limit Equation to Predict Screw Self-Loosening of Dental Implants Subjected to External Cycling Loading
Self-loosening of the prosthetic screws is a major mechanical problem affecting roughly 10% of dental implants, according to the literature. This phenomenon may lead to micro-movements that produce crestal bone loss, ...
