Computational Simulation of Airflow with Aerosols in Distal Parts of a Human Respiratory System: Investigating the Effects of Gravity

Mohammad Ahmadi Alashti; Bahman Vahidi; Mahtab Ebad

Volume 13, Issue 1 , April 2019, Pages 1-15

  The large surface area of the lung with its thin air-blood barrier is exposed to particles in the inhaled air. In this condition, if the inhaled pollutant aerosols are toxic, the particle-lung interaction may cause serious hazards and injuries on human’s health. On the otherhand, these interactions ...  Read More

Noise Reduction in Cone Beam Computed Tomography Images using Independent Component Analysis

Saeid Shakeri; Farnaz Ghassemi; Farshad Almasganj

Volume 13, Issue 1 , April 2019, Pages 17-30

  Noise removal is one of the most important steps in digital image processing. Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is increasingly utilized in maxillofacial and dental imaging. Compared to conventional CT, CBCT images have diffrent noise and artifacts due to much less applied dose and their reconstruction ...  Read More

Assessing Time-Dependent Response of Intact and Degenerated Cervical Intervertebral Discs by Employing a Poroviscoelastic Model based on Experimental Relaxation Data

Mahdieh Mosayebi; Afsaneh Mojra

Volume 13, Issue 1 , April 2019, Pages 31-44

  Intervertebral disc (IVD) provides flexibility and shock absorption for the spine in the load transmission procedure. Disc degeneration may occur as a result of aging and inappropriate types of loading. Assessing biomechanical parameters of intact IVD in comparison to the degenerated disc with different ...  Read More

Numerical Simulation of Flow Field, Heat and Moisture Transfer in the Human Nasal Cavity Pre and Post Virtual Turbinectomy

Parisa Rahmani; Hossein Shamohammadi; Omid Abouali; Homayoon Emdad; Mohammad Faramarzi

Volume 13, Issue 1 , April 2019, Pages 45-53

  Turbinates play an important role in conditioning of inhaled air and affect the airflow passing the nasal cavity. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of removing inferior turbinate on flow field, heat and moisture transfer from mucosa into the inhaled-air in a human nasal cavity and ...  Read More

A New Multi-Attractor Model of Human Posture Stability to Follow Self-Organized Dynamics

Mehdi Yousefi Azar Khanian; Seyed Mohammad Reza Hashemi Golpayegani; Mostafa Rostami

Volume 13, Issue 1 , April 2019, Pages 55-68

  Recently, analysis of the human postural stability has gained increasing interest. This is mainly due to the necessity of understanding the self-organization mechanisms in this system activated in response to any motion pattern. The extraction of effective indicators from this system could help ...  Read More

Esophageal Epithelium Modeling based on Globally Coupled Maps with the approach of Precancerous Lesions Diagnosis

Zahra Sadat Hosseini; Seyed Mohammad Reza Hashemi Golpayegani

Volume 13, Issue 1 , April 2019, Pages 69-84

  The esophageal carcinoma is the eight most predominate malignancy in the world and the sixth deadliest cancer. 80% of esophageal cancers occur in squamous cells. In Iran, this type of cancer is more prevalent in Golestan province. Before the onset of this type of cancer, histological precursor lesions ...  Read More

Spiral Waves Formation in a Network of Neuron Model with Monotonically Differentiable Magnetic Flux

Fatemeh Parastesh; Sajad Jafari; Hamed Azarnoush

Volume 13, Issue 1 , April 2019, Pages 85-93

  Spiral wave is a particular spatiotemporal pattern, observed in a wide range of complex systems such as neuronal network. Appearance of these waves is related to the network structure as well as the dynamics of its blocks. In this paper, we propose a new modified Hindmarsh-Rose neuron model. The proposed ...  Read More
