Biomechanical evaluation of the intact, injured and surgically reconstructed ulnar collateral ligame
The ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) of the elbow is a major passive stabilizer againstvalgus moments and is a frequent site of injury for the professional throwing athlete. Due to theimportance of the UCL in elbow stabilization, many clinical and biomechanical studies wereconducted in the past to understand its role; however, no study has evaluated the stabilizingfunction of the UCL when subjected to a pure valgus-varus moment at varying degrees of flexion.In addition, few comparative studies ha

4.2.3 Using a search engine more effectively

The search shown in Figure 9(b) is an example of how to use a search engine in a simple way. However, one of the problems with finding information on the web is that there is so much! And not all of it is relevant to what you want. My search for ‘rugby’ and ‘wales’ using the Google search engine yielded about 420,000 results or ‘hits’ (see the information contained in the blue strip on Figure 9(b)). The first few sites listed will probably tell me what I want to know. But what abo

5.1 Standing waves

You learned earlier that when a musician plays a note on an instrument, they supply it with energy that causes the primary vibrator to oscillate at certain specific frequencies. In Section 5 we are going to look at what determines these specific frequencies for some of the primary vibrators found in different instruments.

In Unit TA212_1 Sound for music technology: an introduction, we talk about travelling waves: that is, waves that propagate outwards away from their sourc

3.1 Pusztai's experiments

Issues of ‘fairness’ and our obligations to the developing world do not in themselves explain why the issue of GM plants attracts such controversy.

In particular, we look at the experiments of Arpad Pusztai in the late 1990s at the Rowett Institute near Aberdeen, Scotland. These experiments are of particular interest to us because they revea
