In this study, an improved and robust one-dimensional human arterial network model is presented. The one-dimensional blood flow equations are solved using the Taylor-locally conservative Galerkin finite element method. The model improvements are carried out by adopting parts of the physical models from different authors to establish an accurate baseline(More)
Despite an increasing level of research being directed towards implementing fleet safety interventions, questions remain regarding the most appropriate methods to develop and implement effective driving safety initiatives within large organisations. This paper reviews current vehicle fleet safety research, focusing on the development, application and(More)
The importance of the endothelium in the local regulation of blood flow is reflected by its influence on vascular tone by means of vasodilatory responses to many physiological stimuli. Regulatory pathways are affected by mass transport and wall shear stress (WSS), via mechanotransduction mechanisms. In the present work, we review the most relevant(More)
During 1997, The European Network of Trainees in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (ENTOG) circulated a questionnaire to audit training in Europe. Results describe number and gender in each country, access to training, duration of training, tutor/tutee scheme, logbooks, minimum curriculum, assessment, criteria for accreditation, training abroad, final examination,(More)
Fleet and work related motor vehicle crashes represent a substantial physical, emotional and financial cost to the community. Given this burden, researchers are directing increasing focus towards investigating the attitudes and behaviours of fleet motorists’, as well as determining the value of such self-reported data to predict crash involvement and(More)
