  • Hip Fracture Essay

    Proximal femoral fracture (PFF) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the elderly population (Khasragi, Christmas, Meers, & Wenz, 2005). Referred to as a ‘hip fracture’ in laypersons terms, PFF occurs in the “region between the femoral head and 5 centrimeters below the lesser trochanter” (National Clinical Guideline Center [NCGC], 2011, p. 6). In industrialised countries, the mean age of people sustaining hip fracture is 80 years old, demonstrating hip fracture is predominantly a phenomenon of later life, and 80% are female (Handoll, Camerson, Mak, & Finnegan, 2009). An estimated 1.26 million hip fractures occurred in adults in 1990. With the projected increase in population over 65 years of age, predictions range from 7.3, to 21.3…

  • Essay On Cattle Fracture

    A Colles fracture is a type of broken wrist. It means your radius bone is broken or cracked. The radius is the bone of your forearm on your thumb’s side. The forearm is the part of your arm between the elbow and your wrist. Your forearm is made up of two bones called the radius and the ulna. Often when the radius is broken, the ulna may also be broken. A cast or splint is used to protect and keep your injured bone from moving as it heals. CAUSES • A direct blow to the wrist. • Falling on…

  • Lab Analysis Of The 4PB Experiments

    ERRs Gc (i.e. interfacial fracture toughness) of the interface between Cu leadframe and EMC. They were determined by the FEM simulations using the three mentioned methods: VCCT, VCE and J-integral. The verification of simulations was performed using an analytical solution (eq. (6)). Based on the critical ERRs obtained from different specimens tested at different temperatures, the temperature dependence of the interfacial fracture toughness was investigated. The upper EMC layer of the sample was…

  • Multi Stage Fracturing Research Paper

    Multi-stage fracturing is an advanced drilling technology that enhances the production capabilities through maximizing the contact area of unconventional wells with the reservoir production zones. During the fracturing process, a special fluid (primarily a mixture of sand and water) is blown out at a high pressure into the shale rock formation creating channels through which hydrocarbons can easily migrate to the well. Multi-stage fracturing is a combination of fracturing and plugging processes.…
