The pseudo-rigid-body model concept allows compliant mechanisms to be analyzed using well-known rigid-body kinematics. This paper presents a pseudo-rigid-body model for initially circular functionally binary pinned-pinned segments that undergo large, nonlinear deflections. The model approximates the functionally binary pinned-pinned segment as three rigid(More)
When explosive devices are prepared, transported, or handled, quantifiable amounts of the constituent materials frequently end up on surfaces. Because these chemical residues may serve as indicators of attempts at concealed assembly or transport of explosive substances and devices, being able to rapidly detect them in a noninvasive, remote manner would be(More)
We demonstrate electrorotation of metal nanowires phase-locked to a driving alternating current electric field. Field rotation was accomplished by a low-frequency signal that modulates the amplitude of the high-frequency field. Steady, synchronous rotation of the nanowires was observed for frequencies up to a maximum rotational frequency, which depends on(More)
In this study we investigated the effect of the brand of surgical gloves on the dough time determination for acrylic bone cements. Four different brands of powder-free latex surgical gloves were tested. Two commercial bone cements, Surgical Simplex P and Palacos R, were used for dough time measurement following standard test methods for acrylic bone cements(More)
