The InfiniBand Architecture provides availability, reliability, scalability, and performance for server I/O and inter-server communication. The InfiniBand specification not only describes the physical interconnect and the high-level management functions but also a wide range of functions from simple unreliable communication to network partitioning, with(More)
This study proposes a mathematical model to estimate the initial tension forces of the extraocular muscles (EOMs). These forces are responsible for the mechanical equilibrium of the eye suspended in primary position. The passive contributions were obtained using the corresponding Cauchy stress-stretch relationships based on the previous clinical(More)
Wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) optical networks are becoming more attractive due to their unprecedented high bandwidth provisions and reliability over data transmission among nodes. Therefore, it is not uncommon for enterprises to build a datacenter with over thousands of nodes using WDM optical networks. To reach the high speed over optical links,(More)
Aim. The length-contractile force relationships of six human extraocular muscles (EOMs) in primary innervations should be determined during eye movement modeling and surgery of clinical EOMs. This study aims to investigate these relationships. Method. The proposal is based on the assumption that six EOMs have similar constitutive relationships, with the eye(More)
OBJECTIVE Central melanocortin pathways are well-established regulators of energy balance. However, scant data exist about the role of systemic melanocortin peptides. We set out to determine if peripheral α-melanocyte stimulating hormone (α-MSH) plays a role in glucose homeostasis and tested the hypothesis that the pituitary is able to sense a physiological(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop and evaluate a framework for simulating low-field proton-density weighted MRI acquisitions based on high-field acquisitions, which could be used to predict the minimum B0 field strength requirements for MRI techniques. This framework would be particularly useful in the evaluation of de-noising and constrained reconstruction techniques.(More)
BACKGROUND Corneal tensile strain increases if the cornea becomes thin or if intraocular pressure increases. However, the effects of mechanical stress on extracellular matrix (ECM) remodelling in the corneal repair process and the corneal anomalies are unknown. METHODS In this study, the combined effects of interleukin-1β (IL-1β) on matrix(More)
This study aims to evaluate the biomechanical mechanism of fixation systems in the most frequent T-shaped acetabular fracture using finite element method. The treatment of acetabular fractures was based on extensive clinical experience. Three commonly accepted rigid fixation methods (double column reconstruction plates (P × 2), anterior column plate(More)
