MiM at the 25th Swedish Mechanics Days

2017-06-15

We helped to organise the Swedish Mechanics Days in Uppsala 12-13th June.

Our collaborator, Prof. Stephen Ferguson from ETH Zürich, had a keynote on "Non-linear dynamics of the human intervertebral disc".

We contributed with three scientific presentations: 

  • Robo C, Öhman Mägi C, Persson C. Compressive fatigue properties of standard and low-modulus bone cement
  • Öhman Mägi C, Holub O, Hall RM, Persson C. A review of the relationships between density and mechanical properties of vertebral trabecular bone.
  • Wu D, Joffre T, Gallinetti S, Öhman Mägi C, Ferguson SJ, Isaksson P, Persson C. Elastic modulus of human single trabeculae estimated by synchrotron CT experiments and numerical models.
