      Computational predictions of the tensile properties of electrospun fibre meshes: Effect of fibre diameter and fibre orientation 

      Barocas, V. Η; Stylianopoulos, T.; Bashur, C. A.; Goldstein, A. S.; Guelcher, S. A. (2008)
      The mechanical properties of biomaterial scaffolds are crucial for their efficacy in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. At the microscopic scale, the scaffold must be sufficiently rigid to support cell adhesion, ...

      Estimation of rotational frequency responses 

      Mottershead, J. E.; Kyprianou, Andreas; Ouyang, H. (2003)
      Rotational frequency response functions are potentially valuable for structural damage detection but are difficult to obtain because of the practical problems of applying a pure moment. In the literature various indirect ...

      A mechanistic approach in defining inelastic rotation capacity of RC columns 

      Megalooikonomou, K. G.; Pantazopoulou, Stavroula J.; Tastani, S. P. (National Technical University of Athens, 2017)
      When a reinforced concrete (RC) column is subjected to lateral sway as a result of earthquake action, the large strain demand in the end sections is supported by development of strains in the anchorage. This causes the ...

      Rapidly sheared homogeneous stratified turbulence in a rotating frame 

      Kassinos, Stavros C.; Akylas, Evaggelos; Langer, C. A. (2007)
      Rapid distortion theory is applied to stratified homogeneous turbulence that is sheared in a rotating frame. Insight into the stabilizing and destabilizing effects of the combined stratification and frame rotation is gained ...

      A simplified structure-based model using standard turbulence scale equations: computation of rotating wall-bounded flows 

      Kassinos, Stavros C.; Langer, C. A.; Kalitzin, G.; Iaccarino, G. (2006)
      Two linear eddy-viscosity models, the v2-f and k-ω models, have been combined with an algebraic structure-based algorithm for the evaluation of the Reynolds stresses. This closure was originally designed as an integral ...
