  1. 1. The linear and nonlinear biomechanics of the middle ear

    Author : Thomas Wright; KTH.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biotechnology; biomechanics; middle ear models; ossicular chain; Bioteknik; TECHNOLOGY Bioengineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Bioteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses the biomechanics of the human middle ear, that part of the auditory system which converts sound pressure waves in air to fluid pressure waves in the cochlea. The middle ear's mechanism is analysed in four papers, three main and one supporting; in the main papers the middle ear is treated as a multi-particle, multi-rigid body ensemble possessing a variable number of degrees of freedom depending upon the case being investigated.

  2. 2. Computational Biomechanics in Cross-country Skiing

    University dissertation from Institutionen för ekonomisk och industriell utveckling

    Author : Joakim L. Holmberg; Anders Klarbring; Ingrid Svensson; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Computer simulation; Inverse dynamics; Musculoskeletal; Optimization; Simulation model; Sports; Computational Biomechanics; Cross‐country Skiing; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik;

    Abstract : Traditionally, research on cross‐country skiing biomechanics is based mainly on experimental testing alone. Trying a different approach, this thesis explores the possibilities of using computational musculoskeletal biomechanics for cross‐country skiing. As far as the author knows, this has not been done before. READ MORE

  3. 3. Comparative in vivo and in vitro studies on the biomechanics of maxillary partial dentures. A methodological and experimental study

    University dissertation from Faculty of Odontology

    Author : Cláudio Pinheiro Fernandes; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; stomatology; biomechanics; Bite force; conical crowns; denture design; in vitro; in vivo; photoelasticity; strain gauges; Odontology; stress analysis.; Odontologi;

    Abstract : Biomechanical aspects are generally agreed to be significant, particularly during the planning of restorative treatments and the design of prosthetic appliances. However, comparative in vivo/in vitro studies show wide differences in the magnitudes and patterns of functional strains in prosthetic devices. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sensorimotor control and cervical range of motion in women with chronic neck pain Kinematic assessments and effects of neck coordination exercise

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Thomas Rudolfsson; Högskolan i Gävle.; Högskolan i Gävle.; Umeå universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neck pain; Rehabilitation; Coordination training; Resistance training; Postural balance; randomized controlled trial; Musculoskeletal pain; Biomechanics; Range of motion; Kinematics; Head Movements; Coordination training; Resistance training; Postural balance; randomized controlled trial; Musculoskeletal pain; Biomechanics; Range of motion;

    Abstract : Långvarig smärta i nacken är vanligt förekommande och orsakar både personligt lidande och stora kostnader för samhället. Långvariga nackbesvär är vanligare hos kvinnor än hos män. Det saknas kunskap om effektiva rehabiliteringsmetoder, men forskning har indikerat att träning som förbättrar nackens koordination kan vara effektivt. READ MORE

  5. 5. Biomechanics of the Human Eye and Intraocular Pressure Measurements

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Darja Ljubimova; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; IOP; GAT; ocular biomechanics; corneoscleral envelope; finite element modelling; parametric analysis; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses the reliability of Goldmann-type applanation tonometers (GAT). It deals with the investigation of the relation between predicted intraocular pressure, IOPG and true pressure, IOPT. READ MORE
