Without proper knowledge of mechanical ventilation effects, physicians can aggravate an existing lung injury. A better understanding of the interaction between airflow and airway tissue during mechanical ventilation will be helpful to physicians so that they can provide appropriate ventilator parameters for intubated patients. In this study, a computational(More)
Better understanding of airway mechanics is very important in order to avoid lung injuries for patients undergoing mechanical ventilation for treatment of respiratory problems in intensive-care medicine, as well as pulmonary medicine. Mechanical ventilation depends on several parameters, all of which affect the patient outcome. As there are no systematic(More)
Better understanding of the acute/chronic inflammation in airways is very important in order to avoid lung injuries for patients undergoing mechanical ventilation for treatment of respiratory problems. Local lung inflammation is triggered by many mechanisms within the lung, including pathogens. In this study, a cellular automata based model (CA) for(More)
Better understanding of the stress/strain environment in airway tissues is very important in order to avoid lung injuries for patients undergoing mechanical ventilation for treatment of respiratory problems. Airway tissue strains responsible for stressing the lung's fiber network and rupturing the lung due to compliant airways are very difficult to measure(More)
Airway disease such as tumours and asthma lead to lung injuries. Therefore, a better understanding of airway mechanics parameters is very important to avoid lung injuries in patients undergoing mechanical ventilation for treatment of respiratory problems in intensive-care medicine as well as pulmonary medicine. The objective of this study was to investigate(More)
J contour integral fracture toughness of the temporomandibular (TMJ) disc was estimated from a computational model based on fracture load data derived from experimental tests. The computational model involved a stress analysis of TMJ disc specimens with cracks oriented parallel and perpendicular to the primary collagen fiber axis within the intermediate(More)
