Biomechanical modeling of human hand
Kılıç, Osman; Tönük, Ergin; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2007)
This thesis analyzes the wrist joint of the human hand by using a realistic threedimensional wrist model. Load distributions among carpal bones, forces on ligaments and joints were examined by using three-dimensional model. Wrist injuries and required surgical operations were examined with the model. The most crucial point of the study was that, using three-dimensional model of the wrist, hand surgeons would be able to predict results of surgical operation. Surgery planning may be done and mechanical result...
Biomechanical modelling of a horse rider
Defterli, Sinem Gözde; Soylu, Reşit; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2014)
In this study, a biomechanical horse rider model is developed. The rider is modeled, on the sagittal plane, using link segments representing the limbs of the body. The model which is a tree type structure kinematically, consists of 11 links connected by the revolute joints. Assuming that each of the joints is actuated by an equivalent muscle torque, the equations of motion of the rider model is developed. In this study, it is assumed that the actuating muscle torques applied by the rider and the equivalent ...

Biomechanics of porous ceramic implants used in long-bones segmental defect healing
Balçık, Cenk; Tokdemir, Turgut; Korkusuz, Feza; Department of Engineering Sciences (2002)
Reconstruction of bone in segmental defect is a challenging orthopedic application in which nonunion is seen due to loss of tissue and atrophic bonding inability. Calcium and phosphate based ceramics are the new generation of bone grafts to be used in large segmental defects as they show excellent biocompatibility, biodegradability and osteoconductivity. Ideal ceramic composition, configuration and material property compatible to cortical bone is yet to be determined. It is hypothesized that long-bones segm...
