In this paper, a fully variational constitutive model of soft biological tissues is formulated in the finite strain regime. The model includes Ogden-type hyperelasticity, finite viscosity, deviatoric and volumetric plasticity, rate and microinertia effects. Variational updates are obtained via time discretization and pre-minimization of a suitable objective… (More)
We present a computational study of ultrasonic assisted manufacturing processes including sheet metal forming, upsetting, and wire drawing. A fully variational porous plasticity model is modified to include ultrasonic softening effects and then utilized to account for instantaneous softening when ultrasonic energy is applied during deformation.

Technetium 99 methylene diphosphonate scans were performed on 32 patients with suspected stress fractures. Twenty-six patients had abnormal scans, 13 had abnormal X-rays and on these only nine had either fresh periosteal new bone and/or a fracture line. A logical approach of the use of X-ray and radionuclide techniques in patient management is suggested.
