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.

    Progressive failure analysis of structures is still a major challenge. There exist various predictive techniques to tackle this challenge by using both classical (local) and nonlocal theories. Peridynamic (PD) theory (nonlocal) is very suitable for this challenge, but computationally costly with respect to the finite element method. When analyzing complex structures, it is necessary to utilize structural idealizations to make the computations feasible. Therefore, this study presents the PD equations of motions for structural idealizations as beams and plates while accounting for transverse shear deformation. Also, their PD dispersion relations are presented and compared with those of classical theory.
