Respiratory mechanics is a difficult topic for instructors and students alike. Existing respiratory mechanics models are limited in their abilities to demonstrate any effects of the rib cage movement on alveolar and intrapleural pressures. We have developed a model that can be used in both large and small classroom settings. The model contains digital… (More)
1 ABSTRACT InAs/GaSb superlattices are a material system well suited to growth via molecular beam epitaxy. The ability to tune the band gap over the entire mid and long wave infrared spectrum gives a large number of applications for devices made from InAs/GaSb superlattice material. The growth of high quality InAs/GaSb superlattice material requires a… (More)

The aim of this study is to model the hand–arm system during fastening operation using shear fasteners. Fastening using powered hand-tool generates considerable dynamic forces caused by the impact delivered to the hand–arm at the end of the operation because of fastener shear-off. The hand–arm is modeled as a rotational single-degree-of-freedom system. The… (More)
