The mechanical function of a stent deployed in a damaged artery is to provide a metallic tubular mesh structure. The purpose of this study was to determine the exact mechanical characteristics of stents. In order to achieve this, we have used finite-element analysis to model two different type of stents: tubular stents (TS) and coil stents (CS). The two(More)
The purpose of this paper is to examine the feasibility of large eddy simulation (LES) for predicting gas-solid ows in which the carrier ow turbulence is modiied by momentum exchange with particles. Several a priori tests of subgrid-scale (SGS) turbulence models are conducted utilising results from direct numerical simulation (DNS) of a forced homogeneous(More)
Corn silage (CS) is associated with a reduction in milk fat content. The fact that CS is constituted of a grain and a forage fraction could explain this effect. This experiment evaluated the effect of grain fraction of CS on rumen fermentation, production performance and milk composition. Earless CS (ECS) was harvested after manually removing corn ears from(More)
