Pumping liquids at small scales is challenging because of the principle of reversibility: in a viscous regime, the flow streamlines through a fixed geometry are the same regardless of flow direction. Recently we developed a class of microfluidic pump designs based on tilted flexible structures that combines the concepts of cilia (flexible elastic elements) and rectifiers (e.g., Tesla pump). We ...

Blood Flow Patterns in a Patient Specific Right Coronary Artery with Multiple Stenoses - new

Atherosclerotic lesions preferentially develop in certain regions like bifurcations, branches, and bends [1, 2]. A possible explanation for such a preferential localization of atherosclerosis is that the geometry of the vessel influences the blood flow pattern. It suggests that the arterial geometry plays an important role in determining the localized blood flow information. Thus hemodynamic ...

In clean coal technologies, improving energy conversion efficiency is one of the most important directions. Compared to traditional subcritical power plants, pressure-increased supercritical power plants improve the plant energy efficiency from 35% up to 45%. This work presents a study of the thermodynamic behaviour of the water cycle in coal-fired boilers in response to the changes in energy ...

[1]National Institute of Technology Warangal, Warangal, Telangana, India

Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) finds application in many manufacturing processes of microelectronic devices and MEMS as a recent development. It is also useful for preparation of functionalized surfaces in microsensor kind of devices. The phenomena that is studied is deposition of a crystalline material for example Silicon from the gas phase substance such as Silicon Hydride (SiH4). The ...

Modeling Mechanical Property Changes During Heating of Carrot Tissue - A Microscale Approach - new

[1]Department of Biological & Environmental Engineering, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA

Turgor pressure loss and pectin degradation result in texture loss during cooking of plant based materials. To simulate texture loss, a simultaneous heat and moisture transfer, pectin degradation in the cell wall material and solid mechanical model was developed at the microscale using finite elements to predict the homogenized Young’s Modulus of the carrot tissue during heating. The model ...

Micromechanical Design of Novel Thermal Composites for Temperature Dependent Thermal Conductivity - new

[1]ATOA Scientific Technologies Pvt. Ltd., Bengaluru, Karnataka, India

Materials with an order variable in thermal conductivity as a function of temperature are desirable for thermoelectric heat energy recovery, building thermal insulation and solar thermal applications. Thermal Conductivity is an inherent material property. Engineering the fundamental thermal conductivity needs manipulation at thermal photon level for conventional materials. Engineering thermal ...

On the Geometric Nonlinearity Effects of Polymeric Plates on Structural Performance - new

[1]ATOA Scientific Technologies Pvt. Ltd., Bengaluru, Karnataka, India

Polymer sheets are widely used for glazing and roofing structural applications. The primary design requirements of these polymeric sheets are to resist uniformly distributed wind loading. Conventional building materials such as steel and glass plates are relative stiffer compared to polymeric sheets. The deflection of high stiff plates is about an order lower than polymeric plates. Polymeric ...

S. Mishra [1], S. K. Saxena [1], P. Yogi [1], P. R Sagdeo [1], R. Kumar [1],
[1] Indian Institute of Technology Indore, Indore, Madhya Pradesh, India

In the present work, we have studied the electron transport properties of single silicon nanowire using Semiconductor Module of COMSOLMultiphysics software. We construct a MSM (metal-semiconductor-metal) model where metal is selected as copper and semiconductor is taken as silicon. Silicon is doped with n-type impurity by increasing doping concentration. Further, the Schottky diodes formed at ...

Numerical Simulation of Acoustic Properties of Porous Metals under High Sound Pressure Level Conditions

[1] School of Mechanical Engineering, Ningxia University, China

The sound propagation and absorption properties in porous media under high sound pressure level conditions have been reported elsewhere. Also several analytical and semi-analytical solutions have been developed; however, these solutions are relatively complicated and the provided results are not accurate enough yet. In this work, the simulated results for the study of the sound absorption ...

Numerical Simulation of Electrokinetic Convection-Enhanced Delivery of Macromolecules

[1] Department of Chemistry, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

The brain is a heterogeneous porous medium with regions of anisotropy. Measurements of tortuosity (λ) showed that diffusion in gray matter (e.g. striatum) is isotropic (λ = 1.65), whereas it is anisotropic in white matter (e.g. corpus callosum) (λparallel = 1.38, λperpendicular = 1.80)[1-2]. Pressure-driven convection-enhanced delivery (CED) of macromolecules (e.g. drugs) was first described in ...
