Objectives. Cage design and material properties play a crucial role in the long-term results, since interbody fusions using intervertebral cages have become one of the basic procedures in spinal surgery. Our aim is to design a novel Apatite-Wollastonite interbody fusion cage and evaluate its biomechanical behavior in silico in a segmental spinal model. Materials and Methods. Mechanical properties for the Apatite-Wollastonite bioceramic cages were obtained by fitting finite element results to the experimenta...
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 Evaluation of an Injectable Alginate / Dicalcium Phosphate Cement Composites for Bone Tissue Engineering
Alshemary, Ammar Z.; Bilgin, Saliha; Işık, Gülhan; Motameni, Ali; Tezcaner, Ayşen; Evis, Zafer (2021-06-01)
Biocompatible dicalcium phosphate (DCP) cements are widely used as bone repair materials. In this study, we aimed to investigate the impact of different amounts of sodium alginate (SA) on the microstructural, mechanical, and biological properties of DCP cements. Beta-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) was prepared using a microwave-assisted wet precipitation system. Lattice parameters of the obtained particles determined from X-ray diffraction (XRD), were in good match with a standard phase of β-TCP. Scanning ele...
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 ...
Biomechanical Investigation of Disturbed Hemodynamics-Induced Tissue Degeneration in Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms Using Computational and Experimental Techniques

Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is the dilatation of the aorta beyond 50% of the normal vessel diameter. It is reported that 4-8% of men and 0.5-1% of women above 50 years of age bear an AAA and it accounts for similar to 15,000 deaths per year in the United States alone. If left untreated, AAA might gradually expand until rupture; the most catastrophic complication of the aneurysmal disease that is accompanied by a striking overall mortality of 80%. The precise mechanisms leading to AAA rupture remains unc...
