Previous research has shown that both the mechanics and elongation mechanisms of tendon and ligament vary with strain rate during tensile loading. In this study we sought to determine if the ultrastructural damage created during tendon rupture also varies with strain rate. A bovine forelimb model was used, allowing two anatomically proximate but ph...
Composites have the potential to be lightweight, durable, corrosion- and cavitation- free materials. The technology has been incorporated successfully into aircraft and commercial sea vessels. The Cooperative Research Ships (CRS), Composite Propeller Working Group (COMPROP) is investigating the feasibility of using composites for marine propellers....
Statement of significance: Collagen fibrils-nanoscale biological cables-are the fundamental load-bearing elements of all structural human tissues. While all collagen fibrils share common features, such as being composed of a precise quarter-staggered polymeric arrangement of triple-helical collagen molecules, their structure can vary significantly...
