Write a research paper involving an issue typically related to human resource management. I have listed several topics below, and you can choose any of these topics to analyze. Write the paper from an HR perspective. Discuss the issue and its potential drawbacks/advantages on the firm/employees, and explain how HR can deal with this issue.
For ceramic restorations, in vitro fatigue studies are good predictors of clinical survival. These studies are indicated for situations of repetitive subcritical loading. The fatigue lifetime distribution depends on the flaw distribution and it provides an insight of the materials’ quality. In these experiments we designed a Step-Stress Accelerated Life test to evaluate the difference in the service life of dental ceramics sintered using MHS and Conventional Sintering Furnaces (CFS). MATERIALS AND METHODS For these experiments the material used was lithium disilicate dental ceramic (IPS e-max CAD from Ivoclar Vivadent, Amherst, NY). This glass-ceramic is manufactured with a high degree of homogeneity, a convenient property for experimental work. The homogeneity of the material helps to reduce the errors that could be induced by variations in the samples [Dickerson 1999, Ivoclar 2005, Rahaman 2003]. Samples were obtained from commercially available monolithic blocks of IPS e.max CAD from the same production batch, using a low-speed rotatory saw (IsoMet 3000, Buehler, Lake Bluff, IL) with a diamond coated wafering blade (15HC, Buehler, Lake Bluff, IL) under alcohol irrigation, to obtain beams of 12x2x1 mm. All samples were polished to correct imperfections in shape using Soflex discs (3M ESPE, Saint Paul, MN) Ceramic samples were divided into two groups for the experiments. One set of samples was sintered using a research microwave furnace (Microwave Research Application Inc), at 2000 W input power at a frequency of 2.45 GHz, as previously described [Pendola and Saha, 2015]. Temperature profiles were measured and recorded with the infrared pyrometer, using measurement software (Infrawin 5.1, Lumasence). Conventional Furnace Sintering (CFS) was performed following the manufacturer’s guidelines in two professional dental labs under the student supervision (Marotta’s Lab in Farmingdale, LI, and Tech Square Lab, Manhattan, New York), using a conventional dental furnace (Programat E5000, Ivoclar Vivadent, Amherst, NY). A Step Stress Test of 50,000 cycles with a 10Hz frequency was designed>GET ANSWER
