A mathematical model is developed for calculating the contact stress distribution in the hip for a known resultant hip force and characteristic geometrical parameters. Using a relatively simple single nonlinear algebraic equation, the model can be readily applied in clinical practice to estimate the stress distribution in the most frequent body positions of… (More)
The magnitude and the direction of the resultant hip joint force are different in different body positions during gait. Therefore the stress distribution in the hip joint articular surface also changes. The aim of this work is to study how the stress distribution changes if the magnitude and the direction of the hip joint force is changed during gait. For… (More)
Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) was detected for the first time in Slovenia in January 2015. The complete genome sequence of PEDV strain SLO/JH-11/2015, obtained from a fecal sample of a fattening pig with diarrhea in September 2015, is closely related to recently detected European strains.
