    García Vilana, Silvia; Sánchez Molina, David; Llumà Fuentes, Jordi; Galtés Vicente, Ignasi; Velázquez Ameijide, Juan; Rebollo Soria, María Carmen; Arregui Dalmases, Carlos (2021-10-18)
    Article
    Open Access
    Many previous studies on the mechanical properties of Parasagittal Bridging Veins (PSBVs) found that strain rate had a significant effect on some mechanical properties, but did not extensively study the viscoelastic effects, ...

    Purpose The aim of this paper is to propose a fracture model for human ribs based on acoustic emission (AE) data. The accumulation of microcracking until a macroscopic crack is produced can be monitored by AE. The ...
  • Mechanical behavior of blood vessels: elastic and viscoelastic contributions 

    Sánchez Molina, David; García Vilana, Silvia; Llumà Fuentes, Jordi; Galtés Vicente, Ignasi; Velázquez Ameijide, Juan; Rebollo-Soria, M. Carmen; Arregui Dalmases, Carlos (2021-08-26)
    Article
    Open Access
    The mechanical properties of the cerebral bridging veins (CBVs) were studied using advanced microtensile equipment. Detailed high-quality curves were obtained at different strain rates, showing a clearly nonlinear stress–strain ...
  • Influence of anthopometric variables on the mechanical properties of human rib cortical bone

    Objective. The mechanical properties of ribs from a large number of post-mortem human subjects (PMHS) were analyzed to search for variation according to age, sex or BMI in the sample. A large sample of specimens from ...
  • Prediction of mechanical properties of human rib cortical bone using fractal dimension 

    Velázquez Ameijide, Juan; García Vilana, Silvia; Sánchez Molina, David; Llumà Fuentes, Jordi; Martínez González, Eva; Rebollo-Soria, M. Carmen; Arregui Dalmases, Carlos (Gordon and Breach Science Publishers, 2020-10-26)
    Article
    Open Access
    A large number of post mortem human subjects was used to investigate the relation between the micro-structure of rib cortical bone and the mechanical properties using Fractal Dimension. Uniaxial tensile tests were performed ...
  • Probabilistic assessment for clavicle fracture under compression loading: rate-dependent behavior 

    Sánchez Molina, David; García Vilana, Silvia; Velázquez Ameijide, Juan; Arregui Dalmases, Carlos (2020-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    Pedestrians, motorcyclists, and occupants of vehicle involved in side impacts can suffer lateral impacts at the shoulder with sufficiently high forces to fracture the clavicle. While some previous studies have developed a ...
