Due to technology and the globalization of the marketplace, engineers must often work with diverse colleagues on team projects from a distance. Yet, given the logistics of today's traditional classroom, many instructors establish local student teams to solve engineering problems. While these local(More)
This paper describes the design and construction of a biomechanical model that will determine the pull-out strengths and fatigue failure of internal fixation devices used at the lumbosacral junction. Fusions at this junction have the highest failure rate. It is suggested that devices that successfully fix this vertebral unit will be effective at other(More)
