How safe are metal-on-metal hip implants? and are ceramic-on-ceramic safer? Or we will discover soon they are not?Submitted by Mike Ciavarella on Sun, 2013-09-29 22:49.
Would you believe this story?
To me, that metal - on - metal had large friction, especially with the newest designs, it was clear from the old Sir Charnley studies in Leeds in 1950s published in his gold book.
Anyway, when I looked at ceramic on ceramic joints, I also found evidence of increased friction. Maybe ceramic debris is less toxic?
Please comment. What can we do outside USA to improve the situation?
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
We are pleased to invite you to contribute to the 1st International IEEE Workshop on Metrology for Aerospace.
The event is co-technical sponsored by two IEEE Societies, AESS and IMS.
The event includes but is not limited to new technology for metrology-assisted production in aerospace industry, aircraft component measurement, sensors and associated signal conditioning for aerospace, calibration methods for electronic test and measurement for aerospace.
Fixation and Mechanical Properties of Implanted Cartilage Replacements - Overview of three recently published papersSubmitted by Ali_Vahdati on Sun, 2013-09-29 18:08.
full-thickness cartilage lesions of the knee caused by trauma, disease or joint
instability are a common disorder affecting people of all ages. Implanted
cartilage replacements (ICR) have the potential to overcome the limitations of
conventional treatment methods and are a promising approach to restore
functionality of the joint. In spite of some success in engineering
cartilaginous tissue, inferior biomechanical and biochemical properties of ICR
compared to native articular cartilage (AC) and inadequate quality of fixation

The Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering (MechSE) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign invites applications for faculty positions at all levels in Solid Mechanics, broadly defined, with particular emphasis on research that is experimental in nature. MechSE at Illinois has a strong tradition in solid mechanics, and offers a BS degree in Engineering Mechanics and MS/PhD programs in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, as well as BS, MS, and PhD degrees in Mechanical Engineering.
I would like to invite you on behalf of myself, Prof. Tahir Cagin (Texas A&M) and Prof. Akhtar Khan (University of Maryland) to contribute to a newly added mini-symvposium to the International Symposium of Plasticity to take place 3-8 January 2013 at Bahamas Island; more detailed information of the event is listed below.
a PhD student ship is available for UK/EU nationals (ONLY) to develop a Finite Element model of the rolling
operation to predict the behaviour of surface defects on the rolled
material during hot rolling of steels. The effects of geometrical parameters along with the material
properties and the rolling geometry, such as bite angle, on the behaviour of
the surface defects during rolling will be investigated. The
project is partially funded by Tata Steel Europe,
a research experience on application of ABAQUS in large deformation modelling and metallurgy of steels is necessary.
Position Filled. (Postdoctoral Position Opening at the University of Michigan in Experimental Mechanics)Submitted by Sam Daly on Wed, 2013-09-25 00:22.
--- Position Filled. No longer accepting applications. ---
Prof. Samantha Daly at the University of Michigan is seeking candidates for a one-year post-doctoral position. This position is renewable depending on performance. The project is a joint effort with other U-M research groups to integrate advanced analysis and materials research in a new framework for capturing materials information, where computationally efficient reduced order random field descriptors are used to capture microstructural and property information. The post-doctoral position will focus on the experimental aspects of this work, specifically the small-scale characterization of polycrystalline deformation in alpha-titanium alloys.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering invites outstanding applicants in all areas of
