UNLABELLED Fracture properties of composite-dentin beams bonded with a self-etching adhesive were tested following short term pretreatments to simulate potential degradation mechanisms (thermal cycling, immersion in 5% NaOCl, or fatigue cycling). Beams of rectangular cross-section were shaped to a size of approximately 0.87 x 0.87 x 10 mm and placed in a(More)
INTRODUCTION The purpose of this study was to compare the fracture resistance to cyclic fatigue of ProTaper Next (PTN; Dentsply Tulsa Dental Specialties, Tulsa, OK), ProTaper Universal (PTU, Dentsply Tulsa Dental Specialties), and Vortex Blue (VB, Dentsply Tulsa Dental Specialties) rotary instruments. METHODS Twenty instruments each of PTN X1-X5, PTU(More)
Game theory has long been used to model cognitive decision making in societies. While traditional game theoretic modelling has focused on well-mixed populations, recent research has suggested that the topological structure of social networks play an important part in the dynamic behaviour of social systems. Any agent or person playing a game employs a(More)
Three trained subjects were repeatedly tested for detection of auditory thresholds at 27 frequencies, from 2 to 18 kHz. A double-blind procedure was used with the method of adjustment, and the quasi-free-field delivery system of Osterhammel et al. [Scand. Audiol. 6:91-95, 1977] was used to monaurally stimulate the ear. A very reliable series of high- and(More)
The human body offers a template for many state-of-the-art prosthetic devices and sensors. In this work, we present a novel, sensorized synthetic skin that mimics the natural multi-layered nature of mechanoreceptors found in healthy glabrous skin to provide tactile information. The multi-layered sensor is made up of flexible piezoresistive textiles that act(More)
Parallel coordinates plotting is one of the most popular methods for multivariate visualization. However, when applied to larger data sets, there tends to be a “black screen problem,” with the screen becoming so cluttered and full that patterns are difficult or impossible to discern. Xie and Matloff (2014) proposed remedying this problem by plotting only(More)
A quasi-free-field technique was used to assess the effects of extra-high-frequency-band masking on detection threshold of middle and high (1-7 kHz) frequencies. At an SPL of 60 dB, the 10- to 20-kHz masker produced a slight amount of masking. Increasing the masking level by another 5 dB produced a disproportionate increase of the detection thresholds. This(More)
