Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

This paper will research the singularity strength theory to stress distribution of a 135-degree sheet corner which bases on notch stress intensity factor (N-SIF) theory. The N-SIF formula is simplified through singularity strength 'as' which is related to structure size. Numerical simulations by ANSYS and regression analysis by MathCAD are done for a number of cases. Finally a simple assessment algorithms and the empirical formula for the notch stress are proposed and verified. The results can be used for structural strength and fatigue analysis.
