Analysis of a bonded joint using bulk adhesive properties
(Virginia Tech, 1988-12-05)
<p>Adhesives and adheslvely bonded structures are being considered as a viable alternative to conventional fastening methods. In order to gain wider acceptance, it is essential to address the issue of the mechanlcal ...
A viscoelastic model for the response of a step change in velocity of the human otolith organs
(Virginia Tech, 1989-11-15)
The otolith organs are housed in the inner ear and are responsible for sensing accelerations and gravity. These inertial sensing systems are modeled in this thesis as a three material system consisting of a rigid otoconial ...
