    Modeling of the Biomechanical Properties of Articular Cartilage

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Naseri, Hossein (Author) ; Firoozbakhsh, Keikhosrow (Supervisor)
    Articular cartilage Function is vital to joint tasks and its motion. The main biomechanical tasks of articular cartilage are a) the distribution of loads occurred in joints; b) providing joints with frictionless surface. The particular mechanical properties of articular cartilage make it possible for the Cartilage tissue to do its duty successfully. The biological factor that causes articular cartilage to damage is still unknown. It is believed that mechanical factors are the main reason for the cartilage destruction in osteoarthritis. Factors like age, heavy exercises and impact can begin tissue destructions and result in change in mechanical properties. To study the process of the... 

    Development of Dynamic Simple Shear Apparatus for Small Strain Dynamic Tests on Unsaturated Granular Soils by Bender Element and ultrasonic Sensors

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Karimzadeh, Ali Akbar (Author) ; Jafarzadeh, Fardin (Supervisor)
    Shear modulus and confined modulus are important parameters for static and dynamic analysis in geotechnical applications. Elastoplastic and nonlinear constitutive models has been formulized by these parameters. Cyclic simple shear apparatus had been developed by mounting bender element and ultrasonic sensor to measure continuous shear wave and pressure wave velocities for determination of G_max and M.For this purpose two new pedestals have been fabricated on which HAE ceramic disc and sensors were mounted. A pressure control panel and a hanging column system have been designed to apply high and low matric suction with high accuracy.At first two small strain tests were conducted for... 

    Preparation and characterization of a composite biomaterial including starch micro/nano particles loaded chitosan gel

    , Article Carbohydrate Polymers ; Volume 174 , 2017 , Pages 633-645 ; 01448617 (ISSN) Dehghan Baniani, D ; Bagheri, R ; Solouk, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    Thermosensitive Chitosan hydrogels which can be injected into defects with minimally invasive approach were prepared. Also starch micro/nano particles were synthesized via water-in-oil (W/O) miniemulsion technique. The starch particles were incorporated into the chitosan hydrogel to prepare injectable thermosensitive hydrogel composites. Tube inverting method, compression tests, swelling studies, XRD, SEM, OM, DLS, UV–vis spectroscopy were used for investigations. Results revealed that increasing crosslinker and surfactant contents and stirring rate leads to particle size reduction. Particle size was modeled using design of experiments (DOE) via the response surface method (RSM). Due to... 

    Use of rubber modification technique to improve fracture-resistance of hoop wound composites

    , Article Materials and Design ; Volume 30, Issue 6 , 2009 , Pages 1976-1984 ; 02641275 (ISSN) Abadyan, M ; Khademi, V ; Bagheri, R ; Haddadpour, H ; Kouchakzadeh, M. A ; Farsadi, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Toughness improvement of an epoxy resin and respective hoop wound composite were investigated systematically using amine-terminated butadiene acrylonitrile (ATBN) liquid rubber. Rubber modification improves fracture toughness of epoxy resin with slight reduction in the glass transition temperature (Tg), flexural and compressive properties of resin. Impact resistance of composite is improved by rubber modification similar to modified resin. Interlaminar shear strength (ILSS), compressive modulus and strength, and flexural strength of composite decreased slightly with rubber modification. To interpret the data, the void content of composite samples was determined and the damaged surfaces of...
