Simpleware at ORS 2018, Mar 10-Mar 13, New Orleans

Learn about Synopsys Simpleware software's 3D image data (MRI, CT, micro-CT...) processing and model generation capabilities for orthopaedics, including medical device design, at this year's ORS.

We'll be available at booth #1215 to discuss how to use Simpleware software to improve workflows using complex scan data.

Postdoc in Mechanics of Woven and Fiber-based materials at the University of Pittsburgh

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in an exciting project applying advanced fiber-based mechanics to understand the eye and prevent blindness. The successful applicant will join an interdisciplinary team of engineers, clinicians and basic scientists at the Laboratory of Ocular Biomechanics of the University of Pittsburgh.

FEA of the Tibial Post of a Knee Prosthesis

Tibial post failure has been reported in several retrieval studies for knee surgeries using posterior-stabilized (PS) prostheses. Fractures of the tibial post are considered to be caused by high stress-induced destruction (bending and tensile forces). The design of polyethylene inserts requires a certain level of plastic deformation to take place without the risk of deformation. The design of the tibial post varies markedly among manufacturers.

Meet Simpleware at ORS 2017, San Diego, Mar 19-22

Simpleware ORS

The ORS Annual Meeting is the premier international meeting in the field of orthopaedics and musculoskeletal research, and is a major forum for engineers, orthopaedic surgeons, clinicians and biologists to discuss the most innovative and cutting-edge research in this area. Many advancements being realized today for the treatment of orthopaedic patients was at one time presented at the ORS Annual Meeting as an innovative idea.

Postdoc position in soft tissue mechanics, Swansea University UK

A postdoctoral researcher position is open in my group to work on multi-scale and inverse models for soft tissues and heart valve mechanics. The aim of this research will be to develop models that predict aortic stenosis - the most common valve-related disease that affects 5% of the elderly. The project is funded through the research council of UK, and will provide opportunities of working closely with clinicians and experimental collaborators.

Candidate is required to have:

How the embryonic chick brain twists

During early development, the tubular embryonic chick brain undergoes a combination of progressive ventral bending and rightward torsion, one of the earliest organ-level left–right asymmetry events in development. Existing evidence suggests that bending is caused by differential growth, but the mechanism for the predominantly rightward torsion of the embryonic brain tube remains poorly understood.

Viscoelastic damping behavior of structural bamboo material and its microstructural origins

In this study, the intrinsic viscoelastic mechanical behavior of a hierarchical bio-composite, structural bamboo material, was experimentally investigated and correlated with its microstructural constituents and molecular building blocks. The macroscopic viscoelastic responses of bulk bamboo at ambient temperature and dehydrated condition were evaluated through dynamic compression experiments with various loading frequencies, whereas the localized viscoelasticity of bamboo's microstructural phases, viz.

Rates of bond breaking between myosin and actin at different nucleotide states are systematically extracted for the first time

Recently, unusually high detachment rates of a myosin from actin were reported with a force spectroscopy technique. Here, we show that these high rates may be due to the coupling between bond breaking and state transition. Based on a kinetic model for single myosin, rates of bond breaking between myosin and actin at different nucleotide states are systematically extracted for the first time. Our results clearly indicate that myosins may adopt much higher transition rates than bond breaking rates at different nucleotide states at relatively low forces.
