Shuyang’s contributed work published at Nature Comm! Congrats!

Shuyang‘s collaboration work (Tra Vinikoor et al.) was published at Nature Communications! Many congratulations!

Shuyang contributed to the nanoindentation measurement that quantifies the degree of healing of the articular cartilage. The mechanical properties of healed cartilages must be similar with those of heathy cartilages. This work shows that nanoindentation can also be used to study bio-materials (tissue re-generation).

Book chapter (Cold Spray) was published!

Book Chapter 9. ‘Characterization of Cold Sprayed Materials Consolidations” was published. This chapter is included in “Advances in Cold Spray (second edition), Woodhead Publishing Series in Metals and Surface Engineering”. This chapter describes how micromechanical testing can be used to study mechanical properties of cold sprayed materials. All these works were done by Dr. Tyler Flanagan!
