Abstract

In order to understand the mechanisms in degenerative disc disease and support the design of robust disc prothesis, accurate modelling of the intervertebral disc's (IVD) dynamics is necessary. Many experimental studies relate changes in the mechanical properties of the disk to the [...]

Abstract

In this work, a simple and effective Rigid Beam Model is proposed for studying the dynamic behaviour of ancient freestanding stone columns. As well known, monolithic and multi-drum freestanding columns are historical structural elements typical of ancient temples that still can [...]
