In the treatment of the recurrent shoulder subluxations or dislocations, orthopedic surgeons need to pay attention to the presence or absence and the types of the notches of the glenoid cavity.
In the study, we found that the intercondylar notch shape did not contribute to ACL injury ( P = 0.867), although the proportion of Type A intercondylar notches observed in the injured group was larger than that in the control group ( P = 0.005).
Other Asean countries in the index saw declines in rankings such as Lao PDR which is ranked 98th, down six notches from 92nd; Cambodia ranked 118th, down three notches from 115th; and Myanmar, 125th down two notches from 123rd overall.
Although the notches are positioned at the center, the bottom notch is thicker while the one on top is smaller and resembles the notch on the Essential Phone.
Normally, however small they were made to be, phone makers placed their camera notches in the top center.
The careful observation of notches on the borders and fissures on the surfaces were done.
Recent research works [3,4,5,6,7,8] have presented that the notch correction method and material constitutive equations (a cyclic plasticity model) can be integrated to compute the local elasto-plastic stresses and strains from pseudo linear elastic stresses at notches. These approximation methods to compute the actual local stress and strain components for critical notched components provides a great advantage over non-linear elasto-plastic FEA and durability tests due to low cost, computational efficiency and reasonable accuracy.
Deep notches just make more work and do not leave room to drive wedges behind the bar.
It states that not the theoretical maximum notch stress is the static or fatigue strength effective parameter in the case of pointed or sharp notches, but rather the notch stress averaged over a short distance normal to the notch edge.
Then, by placing one or two CLV-EBG structures coupling to the microstrip feeding line of the UWB antenna, single or dual notches are obtained as desired.
Recent observations indicate that it is more common to observe unilateral high-frequency notches than bilateral high-frequency notches [20-23].
