Stabilized space-time fluid-structure interaction techniques with the continuum element
We present the methods used to add continuum element functionality to the structure side of our Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) solver. The FSI solver, already capable of handling the interaction between membrane structure ...
Arterial fluid mechanics computations with the stabilized space-time fluid-structure interaction techniques
The stabilized space-time fluid-structure interaction (SSTFSI) techniques developed by the Team for Advanced Flow Simulation and Modeling (T☆AFSM) are applied to the field of arterial fluid mechanics through the FSI ...
Synthesis and characterization of matrix metalloproteinase sensitive hydrogels for articular cartilage engineering
This thesis investigates modifications to an injectable cell-scaffold construct and evaluates the constructs ability to induce chondrogenesis of encapsulated marrow stromal cells for cartilage tissue engineering applications. ...
Development of ocular drug delivery systems using biodegradable polymers
The delivery of drugs plays an important role in the treatment of ocular diseases. In this thesis, biocompatible, biodegradable materials such as poly(propylene fumarate) (PPF) and poly(lactic-co-glycolic) (PLGA) were used ...
