[1]U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center, Vicksburg, MS, USA

Two finite element models have been developed to investigate the acoustic radiation from a Pratt truss train bridge. The first model was a time dependent structural model that determined the vibration response of the structure due to two wheels, representing a single axle, moving across the bridge at constant speed. This model was expanded to include multiple axles to represent a locomotive. The ...

Singlet Oxygen Modeling of BPD Mediated-PDT Using COMSOL

[1]University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Singlet oxygen (1O2) is the major cytotoxic agent during photodynamic therapy (PDT). A previously developed model that incorporates the diffusion equation for the light transport in tissue and the macroscopic kinetic equations for the generation of the singlet oxygen, can be used to numerically calculate the distance-dependent reacted 1O2 using finite-element method (FEM). The formula of reacted ...

The MEMS microphone is also called microphone chip or silicon microphone.The pressure sensitive diaphragm is etched directly into a silicon chip by MEMS techniques and is usually accompanied with integrated preamplifier. Most MEMS microphones are variants of the condenser microphone design. The device consists of a polysilicon diaphragm suspended over a single crystal silicon backplate ...

Simulation of Gravitational Instability During CO2 Absorption in a NaHCO3/Na2CO3 Solution

This work deals with the modeling and the numerical simulation of the CO2 absorption, coupled with a chemical reaction, in an initially quiescent aqueous solution of sodium carbonate (Na2CO3) and bicarbonate (NaHCO3), inside a Hele-Shaw cell. In our Hele-Shaw cell, the liquid fills partially the gap between two parallel transparent Plexiglas plates. CO2 is forced to flow above the liquid in the ...

[1]Rajalakshmi Engineering College, Chennai, India

In this project, we report a design of MEMS microphone that is based on the application of porous silicon in improving the sensitivity of bulk micro machined capacitive pressure sensors. The property of a low Young’s modulus of porous silicon and its dependence on porosity have been exploited to obtain a higher sensitivity compared to pressure sensors with single crystalline silicon membranes. ...

1. It is feasible to focus and guide nanoparticles with permanent magnets and ferromagnetic particles to achieve clinically significant olfactory dosages. 2. With appropriate magnetophoretic guidance and selective drug release, an olfactory delivery efficiency of more than 20% can be achieved. 3. The optimal particle size range for magnetophoretic guidance is 10−15 µm.

Microvascular Dysfunction in PAD Patients - new

Background: Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is characterized by atherosclerotic blockages of the arteries supplying the lower extremities, which cause a progressive accumulation of ischemic injury to the skeletal muscles of the lower limbs. Despite revascularization treatment intervention some PAD patients require follow up secondary treatment due to a continued decline in limb function, ...

Direct Modeling of Packed Bed Channeling - new

[1]NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, AL, USA

An analysis to quantify the effects of packed bed channeling in the narrow passages of the ISS (International Space Station) CDRA (Carbon Dioxide Removal Assembly) is presented. The CDRA contains two pelletized adsorbent beds to remove CO2 respired by the crew. Each CO2 adsorbent bed is paired with an upstream desiccant bed to condition the inlet air (i.e. remove water vapor) prior to entry ...

Constraints on Ocean Floor Permeability from Hydrothermal Modelling - new

S. Titarenko[1], A. McCaig[1]
[1]School of Earth and Environment, University of Leeds, Leeds, UK

The Atlantis massif is a domal submarine seamount close to the mid-Atlantic Ridge at 30 °N. Close to the crest of the Massif, the Lost City hydrothermal field (LCHF) has been active for at least 120,000 years, venting fluids with a temperature of 40-90 °C. 5 km north of Lost City, a temperature profile has been measured in IODP Hole 1309D, with a near-conductive thermal gradient of ~100 °C/km ...
