Numerical simulation of stent angioplasty with predilation: an investigation into lesion constitutive representation and calcification influence
(Springer Nature, 2017-05-09)
It is acceptable clinical practice to predilate a severely occluded vessel to allow better positioning of endovascular stents, and while the impact of this intervention has been examined for aggregate response in animals ...
Catastrophic thinning of dielectric elastomers
(American Physical Society (APS), 2017-02-15)
We provide an energetic insight into the catastrophic nature of thinning instability in soft electroactive elastomers. This phenomenon is a major obstacle to the development of giant actuators, yet it is neither completely ...
Variations in adolescents’ motivational characteristics across gender and physical activity patterns: a latent class analysis approach
(Springer Nature, 2017-08-17)
Background: Neglecting to take account of the underlying context or type of physical activity (PA) that underpins overall involvement has resulted in a limited understanding of adolescents' PA participation. The purpose ...
Risk factor screening to identify women requiring oral glucose tolerance testing to diagnose gestational diabetes: a systematic review and meta-analysis and analysis of two pregnancy cohorts
(Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2017-04-06)
Background Easily identifiable risk factors including: obesity and ethnicity at high risk of diabetes are commonly used to indicate which women should be offered the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) to diagnose gestational ...
Correcting for static shift of magnetotelluric data with airborne electromagnetic measurements: a case study from rathlin basin, northern ireland
(Copernicus GmbH, 2017-05-22)
Galvanic distortions of magnetotelluric (MT) data, such as the static-shift effect, are a known problem that can lead to incorrect estimation of resistivities and erroneous modelling of geometries with resulting misinterpretation ...
Crystalline lens paradoxes revisited: significance of age-related restructuring of the grin
(The Optical Society, 2017-08-22)
Analysis of biphenyl-type inhibitors targeting the eg5 α4/α6 allosteric pocket
(American Chemical Society (ACS), 2017-05-05)
Eg5 is a mitotic kinesin protein that plays an important role in the formation and maintenance of the bipolar spindle during the mitotic phase. Due to its potentially reduced side effects in cancer therapy, Eg5 is considered ...
Severe pollution in china amplified by atmospheric moisture
(Springer Nature, 2017-11-17)
In recent years, severe haze events often occurred in China, causing serious environmental problems. The mechanisms responsible for the haze formation, however, are still not well understood, hindering the forecast and ...
