A new method to study free transverse vibration of the human lumbar spine as segmental multi-layer Timoshenko and Euler–Bernoulli beams
The aim of this study is to propose a method for studying the free transverse vibration of the human lumbar spine using Timoshenko and Euler–Bernoulli beam theories. The cross section of the lumber spine is assumed to be uniform, and the material properties are different for the vertebral bodies, endplates, and intervertebral discs. To derive equations with biomedical approach, they were developed with n segments of the lumbar spine including vertebrae, intervertebral discs, and endplates.
Article Processing Charges
Open access publishing is not without costs. International Journal of Mechanical and Materials Engineering therefore levies an article-processing charge of £905.00/$1420.00/€1155.00 for each article accepted for publication. If the submitting author's institution is a Member, the cost of the article-processing charge is covered by the membership, and no further charge is payable. We routinely waive charges for authors from low-income countries. For other countries, article-processing charge waivers or discounts are granted on a case-by-case basis to authors with insufficient funds. Authors can request a waiver or discount during the submission process. For further details, see our article-processing charge page.
