Lubrication of knee joint replacement
Sadecká, Kateřina ; Horák, Zdeněk (referee) ; Vrbka, Martin (advisor)
The work deals with the lubrication of total knee replacement using fluorescence microscopy method, which allows unique insight into the contact between femoral and tibial component. The aim was to determine the effect of composition of synovial fluid (i.e. albumin, -globulin, hyaluronic acid and phospholipids) on film thickness and protein behaviour in contact, and also to determine changes of contact area during rotation. Since this is the first experimental work dealing with a knee replacement lubrication primarily, only simple rotation and load cycles were applied by the knee simulator. The output of the experiments was fluorescence intensity, which corresponds to dimensionless film thickness, over time. Another important output are the images directly showing the fluorescently labelled proteins in the contact area. The results show, there are fundamental differences in lubrication in different positions of rotation, due to changes of position, shape and behaviour of the contact area. The composition of the lubricant is also essential, since the proteins themselves form a relatively strong lubricating film and their mixture leads to a substantial reduction of film thickness, due to significant formation of clusters. Complex fluid, although it does not form the strongest layer, is able to create a quite continuous film.
The Issue of Production of Components on Bending Machine
Sadecká, Kateřina ; Dvořák, Milan (referee) ; Peterková, Eva (advisor)
The project is deals with issues of bending components of circular cross-section for particular machine DKB in Mubea company. Theoretical part is used as theoretical base for making training materials for new operation workers at the machine. It contains overview of basic technological principles of bending, bending methods used at DKB, used tools and summary of common defects. Practical part is devoted to training materials, methods of its creation and contains presentation of created document. These materials serve as base for simplification of training new workers so they have got comprehensive summary of all important information needed for independent operation of machine.
