Probing Nanoscale Thermal Transport in Surfactant Solutions
(Springer Nature, 2015-11-04)
Surfactant solutions typically feature tunable nanoscale, internal structures. Although rarely utilized, they can be a powerful platform for probing thermal transport in nanoscale domains and across interfaces with ...
Extracting Interactions between Flying Bat Pairs Using Model-Free Methods
Social animals exhibit collective behavior whereby they negotiate to reach an agreement, such as the coordination of group motion. Bats are unique among most social animals, since they use active sensory echolocation by ...
Locomotor deficits in recently concussed athletes and matched controls during single and dual-task turning gait: preliminary results
Background There is growing evidence that mild traumatic brain injury (concussion) can affect locomotor characteristics for prolonged periods of time even when physical signs and symptoms are absent. While most locomotor ...
Using Encapsulated Phase Change Salts for Concentrated Solar Power Plant
Storing thermal energy as latent heat of fusion in phase change material (PCM), such as inorganic salt mixtures, can improve the energy density by as much as 50% while reducing the cost by over 40%. However, to discharge ...
Rapid Stereomicroscopic Imaging of HER2 Overexpression in Ex Vivo Breast Tissue Using Topically Applied Silica-Based Gold Nanoshells
Tumor margin detection for patients undergoing breast conservation surgery primarily occurs postoperatively. Previously, we demonstrated that gold nanoshells rapidly enhance contrast of HER2 overexpression in ex vivo tissue ...
Understanding Active Noise Cancellation
Part II—Case Studies for a Synchronous Thermal Instability Operating in Overhung Rotors
In Part I, a theoretical model was developed for a synchronousthermal instability that is caused by differentialviscous shearing in bearings of overhung rotors. This secondpart used computer programs, which were based on ...
Part I—Theoretical Model for a Synchronous Thermal Instability Operating in Overhung Rotors
Atheoretical model has been developed for a synchronousthermal instability that is caused by differential viscousshearing in bearings of overhung rotors. This model employsan unbalance threshold criterion for instability ...
Variable Volumetric Stiffness Fluid Mount Design
Passive fluid mounts are commonly used in the automotive and aerospace applications to isolate the cabin from the engine noise and vibration. Due to manufacturing and material variabilities, no two identical fluid mount ...
Mapping Nonsquare and Unevenly Spaced 2-D SLDV Data of an Aircraft Fuselage by Using Spatial DFT-IDFT Techniques
The scanning laser Doppler vibrometry (SLDV) technique provides velocities of a structure at 2-dimensional (2-D) angularly evenly spaced (in the laser scanning sense) data points. This causes an unevenly spaced data point ...
