Optimizacija dovoda za vstop reakcijskega plina v USP napravo
Domen Kandare, 2021, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: V okviru diplomske naloge smo simulirali geometrijo dovoda na obstoječi napravi, kjer vstopa reakcijski plin (vodik) v reakcijsko cev naprave za ultrazvočno razpršilno pirolizo (USP) s pomočjo uporabe numeričnih metod. Pri tem vstopu vodika pride do mešanja z nosilnim plinom (dušik). USP naprava je sestavljena iz evaporacijske ter dveh reakcijskih con enakih dolžin, v katero vstopa aerosol s perkurzorsko spojino. V začetnem delu smo izvedli eksperiment na USP napravi tako, da smo za vstopne parametre izbrali tiste, ki so bili teoretično najustreznejši: konstantni pretok vodika 5 L/min in tri različne pretoka dušika (5 L/min, 10 L/min in 15 L/min). V nadaljevanju smo izvedli validacijo z numerično simulacijo z uporabo programa ANSYS CFX. Geometrije modelov so bile izvedene z uporabo programa Solidworks. Vstopna geometrija dovoda vodika je vključevala študijo lege in radija vstopa dovoda glede na reakcijsko cev, kakor tudi študijo kota in premer dovoda. Pri simulaciji smo izbrali značilne pretoke obeh plinov v območju od 5 L/min do 15 L/min. Rezultati so pokazali, da je bila najboljša geometrija z dovodom reakcijskega plina od spodaj. V nadaljevanju smo v simulacijo osnovne geometrije z izbranimi pretoki plinov vključili še temperaturo tako, da smo v coni evaporacije upoštevali 150 °C, v ostalih dveh conah pa 400 °C. Rezultati študije so pokazali, da nam numerične simulacije predstavljajo ustrezno orodje za študij toka reakcijskega plina v UPS napravi, saj so dobljeni rezultati primerljivi z rezultati eksperimentalnih testiranj. Tako lahko numerične simulacije uporabimo za ustrezno ovrednotenje optimalne geometrije dovoda za vstop reakcijskega plina.

Synthesis of PMMA/ZnO nanoparticles composite used for resin teeth
Danica Popović, Rajko Bobovnik, Silvester Bolka, Miroslav Vukadinovič, Vojkan Lazić, Rebeka Rudolf, 2017, original scientific article

Abstract: Wear resistance is one of the most important physical properties of the artificial teeth used in acrylic dentures. The goal of this research was to synthesize a new composite material made of matrix Poly-(methyl methacrylate)-PMMA with different percentages (2 % and 3 % of volume fractions) of zinc-oxide nanoparticles (ZnO NPs) as reinforcing elements, to improve its mechanical properties. The dynamic mechanical behaviour of this composite was studied through the DMA method in comparison to the pure PMMA supported by the characterization of their microstructures. Then the wear resistance was analysed on the samples, which were prepared in the form of teeth. In this context their vertical height loss was measured after 100,000 chewing cycles on a chewing simulator, before and after the artificial thermal ageing. Investigations showed that the PMMA/ZnO NP composites dampened the vibrations better than the pure PMMA, which could be assigned to the homogenous distribution of ZnO NPs in the PMMA matrix. It was found that the mean vertical height loss for the pure PMMA teeth was significantly higher (more than 4 times) compared to composite teeth made with ZnO NPs. Introducing the thermal artificial ageing led to the finding that there was no effect on the height loss by the composite material with 3 % of volume fractions of ZnO NPs. Based on this it was concluded that PMMA/ZnO NPs composites showed improved in-vitro wear resistance compared to acrylic-resin denture teeth, so this new composite material should be preferred when occlusal stability is considered to be of high priority.

Force measurements on teeth using fixed orthodontic systems
Rebeka Rudolf, Janko Ferčec, 2013, review article

Abstract: The fixed orthodontic appliance consists of brackets that are bonded to the teeth. When the wire is engaged in the slot of the brackets, it generates forces for orthodontic tooth movement. The change in periodontal blood supply provides a biological response which leads to remodelling of the alveolar bone and the orthodontic tooth movement. Many variables influencing orthodontic treatment cannot be controlled fully, such as growth and tissue response to appliances. However, the force placed on the tooth should be a controllable variable, and a careful study of the physics underlying clinical applications can help in reducing undesirable side effects. The properties of orthodontic wires such as: strength, stiffness, elasticity and spring-back define their clinical usefulness. The ideal orthodontic wire should exhibit the following properties: large spring-back, low stiffness, good formability, high stored energy, biocompatibility and environmental stability, low surface friction, and the capability of being welded or soldered to auxiliaries. The ideal arch wire has not been introduced yet. Once the wire is activated or bent, it is the unloading or deactivating forces that produce the orthodontic tooth movement. For these reasons, it is necessary to know the force level caused by each individual wire used in orthodontic treatment. Finally, the purpose of this paper is a presentation of force measurements which are generated by different super-elasticity NiTi wires.

Determination of microstructural changes by severely plastically deformed copper-aluminum alloy
Nebojša Romčević, M. Gilić, Ivan Anžel, Rebeka Rudolf, Miodrag Mitrić, M. Romčević, B. Hadžić, D. Joksimović, Milica Petrović Damjanović, Matija Kos, 2014, original scientific article

Abstract: Our work deals with the problem of producing a complex metal-ceramic composite using the processes of internal oxidation (IO) and severe plastic deformation. For this purpose, Cu-Al alloy with 0.4wt.% of Al was used. IO of sample serves in the first step of the processing as a means for attaining a fine dispersion of nanosized oxide particles in the metal matrix. Production technology continues with repeated application of severe plastic deformation (SPD) of the resulting metal matrix composite to produce the bulk nanoscaled structural material. SPD was carried out with equal channel angular pressing (ECAP), which allowed that the material could be subjected to an intense plastic strain through simple shear. Microstructural characteristics of one phase and multiphase material was studied on internally oxidized Cu with 0.4wt.% of Al sample composed of one phase copper-aluminum solid solution in the core and fine dispersed oxide particles in the same matrix in the mantle region. In this manner AFM, X-ray diffraction and Raman spectroscopy were used. Local structures in plastically deformed samples reflect presence of $Cu$, $CuO$, $Cu_2O$, $Cu_4O_3$ or $Al_2O_3$ structural characteristics, depending on type of sample.

The correlation between pain perception among patients with six different orthodontic archwires and the degree of dental crowding
Evgenija Marković, Janko Ferčec, Ivana Ščepan, Branislav Glišić, Nenad Nedeljković, Jovana Juloski, Rebeka Rudolf, 2015, original scientific article

Abstract: Introduction: Forces generated in orthodontic treatment with fixed appliances create tension and compression zones in the periodontal ligament resulting in a painful experience for patients. In the first phase of orthodontic treatment, when leveling of teeth is needed, nickel-titanium (NiTi) archwires can be completely engaged in brackets, even in the cases of extreme crowding, exerting small forces. There is a great individual variation in the pain perception related to the application of orthodontic forces. Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the pain perception among patients with dental crowding after insertion of six different NiTi orthodontic archwires as a part of fixed appliances in the first stage of orthodontic treatment. Methods: The study was conducted on a sample of 189 orthodontic patients receiving one of six different either superelastic or heat activated NiTi archwires, in the first phase of orthodontic treatment. Pain perception was evaluated in groups of patients with different degree of crowding. The modified McGill Pain Questionnaire with Visual Analogue Scale was used to evaluate the quality and intensity of pain. Statistical analysis was performed using simple descriptive statistics, and Pearson`s chi-square test with statistical significance of p<0.05. Results: Majority of patients reported pain as discomfort or pressure of moderate intensity caused by chewing or biting, started within 12 hours, carried on for 3-4 days, and decreased over time without self-medication. Conclusion: No correlation was found between pain perception among patients with different types of NiTi archwires and the degree of crowding.
