Methods and systems relating to enhancing material toughness

Highly mineralized natural materials often boast unusual combinations of stiffness, strength and toughness currently unmatched by today's engineering materials. Beneficially, according to the embodiments of the invention, these unusual combinations can be introduced into ceramics, glasses, and crystal materials, for example by the introduction of patterns of weaker interfaces with simple or intricate architectures, which channel propagating cracks into toughening configurations. ...

Finite element methods and systems

The computational efficiency of finite element methods (fem) on parallel architectures is typically severely limited by sparse iterative solvers. Standard iterative solvers are based on sequential steps of global algebraic operations, which limit their parallel efficiency, and prior art techniques exploit sophisticated programming techniques tailored to specific cpu architectures to improve performance. ...

Methods and systems for optimizing frequency modulation atomic force microscopy

Energy dissipation measurements in frequency modulation-atomic force microscopy (fm-afm) should provide additional information for dynamic force measurements as well as energy dissipation maps for robust material properties imaging as they should not be dependent directly upon the cantilever surface interaction regime. However, unexplained variabilities in experimental data have prevented progress in utilizing such energy dissipation studies. ... Mcgill University

Alkyne-, azide- and triazole-containing flavonoids as modulators for multidrug resistance in cancers

A triazole bridged flavonoid dimer compound library was efficiently constructed via the cycloaddition reaction of a series of flavonoid-containing azides (az 1-15) and alkynes (ac 1-17). These triazole bridged flavonoid dimers and their precursor alkyne- and azide-containing flavonoids were screened for their ability to modulate multidrug resistance (mdr) in p-gp-overexpressed cell line (lcc6mdr), mrp1-overexpressed cell line (2008/mrp1) and bcrp-overexpressed cell line (hek293/r2 and mcf7-mx100). ...
