Wear debris in total hip arthroplasty is one of the main causes of loosening and failure, and the optimal acetabular fixation for primary total hip arthroplasty is still controversial because there is no significant difference between cemented and uncemented types for long-term clinical and functional outcome. To assess and predict, from a theoreti...

The wear rate on Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) entails a heavy burden for patients. This becomes more relevant with increased wear risk and its consequences such as osteolysis. In addition , osteolysis has been described in cemented and uncemented acetabular implants, and nowadays , controversy remains as to whether or not to cement the acetabular c...

This paper summarizes the research results of a doctoral thesis that arises from the perception of a particular state of discomfort in the feeling of some university students of Architecture from several Schools of Spain. The crisis situation leads many qualified professionals in the field of construction to expand their university studies and with...

Statistical analysis of 907 surveys of architecture students and their teachers through the so-called Empathic Survey, in order to analyze the emotional divergences between teachers and students and its impact on learning, have exposed an abnormal and unexpected effect, contradictory to the underlying assumptions. Initially it was hoped that the gr...

The aim of this paper is to study the mechanical capacity improvement in a cold formed steel cross section with thickness of 1 mm regards to a cross section made by means of hot-rolled steel with thickness of 4 mm, respectively. Likewise, the differences are studied in the manufacturing processes used in both profiles, and the particularities of co...

The teachings of Architecture in Spain have undergone significant changes in the legislative environment in the last 50 years. The formation of Architecture, based mostly in the workshop format, is an element of coordination between different learning techniques. This paper presents an approach to an Emotional Learning Method (ELM), which aims to i...

Las enseñanzas de Arquitectura en España han sufrido, en los últimos 50 años, cambios normativos que han hecho variar, alternativamente, la duración de los estudios desde los 5 a los 6 años. Actualmente con la aprobación de los planes de estudio y su adaptación al Espacio Europeo de Educación Superior (EEES), volvemos a los 6 años al poseer las com...

LAS BAJAS TEMPERATURAS QUE LA CATEDRAL DE BURGOS sufre durante los meses de invierno han sido el detonan-te para que el Cabildo del templo decidiera incorporar a este monumento histórico artístico algún sistema que le permitiera un acondicionamiento térmico óptbno. A pesar de ser una iniciativa demandada desde hace años, lo cierto es que la interve...

This paper describes the design of a procedure for the upgrading of timber floor joists with decayed ends using steel profiles connected to timber from the upper side of the flooring. The reinforcement consists on a steel S275 U cold formed shape with a plate inserted into timber and connected by means of screwing into the wood. For the experimenta...

A procedure for the reinforcement of timber floor joists in ancient buildings using steel U shape cross sections screwed to timber from the upper side is described. Bending tests of 3 groups of 10 beams were carried out obtaining the stiffness and load carrying capacity. The first one was composed by pieces of glued laminated timber of Spruce with...

Total Hip Arthroplasty Employing Finite Element Analysis
Project
Consciousness and unconsciousness in manipulation, indoctrination and unhealthy group behavior. There are common bases in some group behaviors that even being aberrant or insane produce an unconscious benefit for the subject. In turn, the manipulation of such behaviors by authority figures can also occur for their own benefit disguised as noble intentions that alleviate other needs of the leader.
Project
This Project has the main goal. Test the experimental background about the upgrading timber structures from a new point of view related to the mechanical engineering and recent manufacturing process.
