    • Computational study on the effect of contact geometry on fretting behaviour 

      McHugh, Peter; Zhang, Teng; Lean, Sean (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2011-07-23)
      A key challenge in the design of engineering couplings and contacting components relates to the development of an understanding of the comparative performance of contrasting contact geometries for a given application, ...
    • Micromechanical modelling of fatigue crack nucleation in stents 

      Sweeney, Caoimhe; McHugh, Peter; Leen, Sean B. (Bioengineering In Ireland Conference 2012, 2012)
      A finite element based micro-mechanical methodology for cyclic plasticity and fatigue crack initiation in cardiovascular stents is presented. The methodology is based on the combined use of a (global) three-dimensional ...
