    This paper presents experimental and numerical studies on the geometrically nonlinear behavior of corrugated laminated composite shells (CLCS) under quasi-static loading along the corrugated direction. A geometrically nonlinear layer-wise shell finite element formulation is adopted to study the behavior of CLCS under large deformation by modeling of incremental different moduli in the tensile and compressive regimes through the thickness, where the spatial location of neutral axis shifts with deformation. A master curve is presented to estimate the value of compressive modulus from given tensile and flexural moduli. Using the prepreg autoclave method, the paper also describes practical... 

    In silico study of patient-specific magnetic drug targeting for a coronary LAD atherosclerotic plaque

    Coronary artery disease is the first cause of death across the world. Targeted delivery of therapeutics through controlled release of micro- and nano-particles remains a very capable approach to develop new strategies in treating restenosis and atherosclerotic plaques. In this research, to produce the arterial geometry, an image-processing was done using CT-scan images of a LAD coronary artery. After implementing the finite element mesh, the Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) simulation based on physiological boundary conditions was performed. Next, a Lagrangian description of particles dynamics in a non-Newtonian blood flow considering momentum equation of motion for each particle and the...
