  • cranial
  • Our combination of phylogenomic and kinematic data reveals a strong association between biting modes of feeding and reduced jaw kinesis, suggesting that the contrasting demands of biting and suction feeding have strongly influenced cranial evolution in both cichlid radiations. (royalsocietypublishing.org)
  • A collaborative project involving NSW DPI, the Universities of NSW, Newcastle and Tampa, Florida, and led by Dr Stephen Wroe aims to reveal the cranial mechanics, bite force and feeding behaviour in the Great White Shark using high resolution 3-D computer simulations. (scienceblog.com)
  • structures
  • This method is further limited in that it cannot shed light on stress-strain distributions, and is therefore ill suited to evaluating the ability of anatomical structures to sustain predicted forces. (royalsocietypublishing.org)
  • The restorative procedures involved can have a great effect on the forces transmitted to the remaining tooth and its supporting structures. (slideshare.net)
  • Where possible, however, excessive length should be avoided, because these cusps tend to transmit greater force to the supporting structures due to the longer lever arm involved. (slideshare.net)
  • The approach being taken in this project involves determining the maximum forces that Great Whites can exert using advanced mathematical and computing methods that were originally developed for the calculation of stresses in structures such as bridges. (scienceblog.com)
  • Thus
  • As a result, biting kinematics would be congruent with biting behavior reported for their terrestrial ancestors, thus providing additional evidence that raptorial biting is a conserved behavior even in recently aquatic mammals. (biologists.org)
  • anterior
  • Phaner furcifer, and most likely Euoticus elegantulus elicit exudate flow by biting into trees with their anterior dentition. (docme.ru)
  • movements
  • Using T-scan and EMG, the tooth contact sequence, changing occlusal forces , and fluctuating muscle activity levels of the temporalis and masseter muscle were recorded from an intercuspation followed by excursive movements till the muscle shutdown occurred. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • finite
  • Here, to our knowledge, in the most comprehensive three-dimensional finite element analysis performed to date for any taxon, we ask whether the traditional view that the bite of H. sapiens is weak and the skull too gracile to sustain high bite forces is supported. (royalsocietypublishing.org)
  • Here, using three-dimensional finite element analysis (FEA), we test the hypothesis that the human bite is weak and the skull unable to sustain high bite forces compared with that of other hominoids. (royalsocietypublishing.org)
  • Finite Element (FE) analysis has been a complementary tool in understanding the process of stress distribution providing information to describe how the design of restorations and restorative materials having widely different behavioral properties affect the teeth [ 11 , 12 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • indicate
  • Data indicate functional innovations for producing large bite forces at wide gape and gape angles. (biologists.org)
  • Underwater experiments with live sharks fail to adequately indicate the force of the Great White's bite, and the sharks have been known to bite through materials that require much greater force than that so far observed in situ. (scienceblog.com)
  • mechanical
  • The shorter skulls and mandibles of sea otters, along with increased mechanical advantages of the masseter and increased bite force, form a repertoire of functional traits for durophagy. (biologists.org)
  • The mechanical approach involves modifying the forces that are applied to the teeth. (dentalworks.com)
  • data
  • Direct bite force data for comparison is unavailable for all other hominoid species. (royalsocietypublishing.org)
  • Of course, in vivo data on jaw forces and jaw gapes are required to reliably assess skull functions during gouging. (docme.ru)
  • Scientists are building a three dimensional computer model to test the 'bite force' of the Great White shark using data from a shark caught in beach nets off the NSW Central Coast. (scienceblog.com)
  • known
  • Experts say the Steodata nobilis, a species of the false widow, are becoming more common in the U.K. and are the most dangerous of the 12 species of biting spiders known in Britain. (theoaklandpress.com)
  • The spider's bite may sting, swell up or cause discomfort like a wasp sting, but has not been known to cause deaths. (theoaklandpress.com)
  • Stresses from the powerful forces generated by grinding and clenching (also known as "bruxing") can wear down teeth or even loosen them. (kramerkuhndental.com)
  • evidence
  • Our results show little morphological evidence for increased force-production or load-resistance abilities in the skulls of these gouging primates. (docme.ru)
  • result
  • It is important to note that studies supporting this configuration of abfraction lesions also state that when there is more than one abnormally large tensile stress on a tooth two or more abfraction lesions can result on the one surface. (wikipedia.org)
  • the result of muscular force applied on opposing teeth. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • form
  • LONDON (AP) Creepy crawlies, in the form of a venomous spider infestation, has forced a school in Britain to close a week before Halloween. (theoaklandpress.com)
  • 3. we see that the following parameter of form and forces are within the control and responsibility of the operator: Number and area of occlusal contacts Inclination and length of cusps Axial contours Interproximal contacts These parameters are related to the surface contours of the completed restoration. (slideshare.net)
  • school
  • The school said no one has been bitten by the spider but local health authorities have advised it to close for the day to deal with the infestation. (theoaklandpress.com)
