Inhomogeneous shear of orthotropic incompressible nonlinearly elastic solids: Singular solutions and biomechanical interpretation
(Elsevier, 2009)We present a detailed study of rectilinear shear deformation in the framework of orthotropic nonlinear elasticity, under Dirichlet and mixedboundary conditions. We take a slab made of a soft matrix, reinforced with two ... 
Initial stress symmetry and its applications in elasticity
(The Royal Society, 20151028)An initial stress within a solid can arise to support external loads or from processes such as thermal expansion in inert matter or growth and remodelling in living materials. For this reason, it is useful to develop a ... 
Initial stresses in elastic solids: Constitutive laws and acoustoelasticity
(2011)On the basis of the nonlinear theory of elasticity, the general constitutive equation for an isotropic hyperelastic solid in the presence of initial stress is derived. This derivation involves invariants that couple the ... 
Instabilities in elastomers and soft tissues
(Oxford Journals, 20060915)Biological soft tissues exhibit elastic properties that can be dramatically different from rubbertype materials (elastomers). To gain a better understanding of the role of constitutive relationships in determining material ... 
The integral homology of PSL(2) of imaginary quadratic integers with nontrivial class group
(2011)We show that a cellular complex defined by Flöge allows us to determine the integral homology of the Bianchi groups PSL(2)(O[m]), where O[m] is the ring of integers of an imaginary quadratic number field Q [square root ... 
The integrated stress response
(EMBO Press, 20160914)In response to diverse stress stimuli, eukaryotic cells activate a common adaptive pathway, termed the integrated stress response (ISR), to restore cellular homeostasis. The core event in this pathway is the phosphorylation ... 
Interaction of nanoparticles with ideal liquidliquid interfaces
(2009)Using molecular simulations the interaction between a noncharged nanoparticle and an ideal liquidliquid interface is studied. The free energy profile as function of nanoparticleinterface separation is determined using ... 
Interface waves in misoriented prestressed incompressible elastic solids
(Oxford Journals, 20041217)Some relationships, fundamental to the resolution of interface wave problems, are presented. These equations allow for the derivation of explicit secular equations for problems involving waves localized near the plane ... 
Interface waves in prestressed incompressible solids
(Springer, 2007)We study incremental wave propagation for what is seemingly the simplest boundary value problem, namely that constitued by the plane interface of a semiinfinite solid. With a view to model loaded elastomers and soft ... 
International ocean discovery program expedition 372 preliminary report: creeping gas hydrate slides and Hikurangi LWD, 26 November 2017  4 January 2018
(Texan A&M University, 201803)International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) Expedition 372 combined two research topics, slow slip events (SSEs) on subduction faults (IODP Proposal 781AFull) and actively deforming gas hydrate bearing landslides (IODP ... 
Interpretive review of the acoustic borehole image logs acquired to date in the WairakeiTauhara Geothermal Field
(Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences Limited, 2013)[No abstract available] 
Intracellular accumulation of high levels of gammaaminobutyrate by Listeria monocytogenes 10403S in response to low pH: uncoupling of gammaaminobutyrate synthesis from efflux in a chemically defined medium
(American Society for Microbiology, 201006)It is well established that the glutamate decarboxylase (GAD) system is central to the survival of Listeria monocytogenes at low pH, both in acidic foods and within the mammalian stomach. The accepted model proposes that ... 
Introduction to the special issue on stability under finite deformation
(Oxford University Press, 2010)In the botanical gardens of Grenoble, France, there is small bridge, just a few metres long, made of prestressed concrete. The bridge dates back to 1855 and is thought to be the oldest manufactured prestressed structure ... 
Investigating the solid state hosting abilities of homo and heterovalent [Co7] metallocalix[6]arenes
(RSC, 2012)A family of homovalent [Co(II)(7)(OH)(6)(L1)(6)](NO3)(2)(1), [(MeOH)(2)subset of Co(II)(7)(OH)(6)(L1)(6)](NO3)(2) (2) (where L1H = 2iminomethyl6methoxyphenol) and heterovalent [(NO3)(2)subset of Co(III)Co(II)(6)(O ... 
Investigating tryptophan quenching of fluorescein fluorescence under protolytic equilibrium
(2009)Fluorescein is one of most used fluorescent labels for characterizing biological systems, such as proteins, and is used in fluorescence microscopy. However, if fluorescein is to be used for quantitative measurements involving ... 
An investigation into the use of MMCTP to tune accelerator source parameters and testing its clinical application.
(2013)This paper presents an alternative method to tune Monte Carlo electron beam parameters to match measured data using a minimal set of variables in order to reduce the model setup time prior to clinical implementation of the ...

(2013)We present depthresolved spatialdomain lowcoherence quantitative phase microscopy, a simple approach that utilizes coherence gating to construct a depthresolved structural feature vector quantifying subresolution axial ... 
Investigation of nanoscale structural alterations of cell nucleus as an early sign of cancer
(BioMed Central, 2014)Background: The cell and tissue structural properties assessed with a conventional brightfield light microscope play a key role in cancer diagnosis, but they sometimes have limited accuracy in detecting earlystage cancers ... 
An investigation of the Eigenvalue Calibration Method (ECM) using GASP for nonimaging and imaging detectors
