Flow Measurements in a Blood-Perfused Collagen Vessel Using X-Ray Micro-Particle Image Velocimetry
Blood-perfused tissue models are joining the emerging field of tumor engineering because they provide new avenues for modulation of the tumor microenvironment and preclinical evaluation of the therapeutic potential of new ...
Neutral Stability Calculations for Boundary-Layer Flows
(AIP Publishing, 1980)
An analysis is presented of the parallel neutral stability of three‐dimensional incompressible, isothermal boundary‐layer flows. A Taylor‐series expansion of the dispersion relation is used to derive the general eigenvalues. ...
Secondary Instability of Plane Channel Flow to Subharmonic Three-Dimensional Disturbances
(AIP Publishing, 1983)
A linear secondary instability mechanism is presented that leads to the occurrence of subharmonic three‐dimensional disturbances in wall‐bounded shear flows. The instability originates from the periodic redistribution of ...
Interaction of Spanwise Vortices with a Boundary Layer
(AIP Publishing, 1995-11-01)
The interaction of a spanwise vortex with a boundary layer has been numerically simulated using a fractional-step method. The incompressible Navier-Stokes equations are solved to accurately predict the strong viscous-inviscid ...
Simple Model of Convection-Diffusion Coupling Near Flames
(AIP Publishing, 1976)
A Couette-flame sheet flow model is analyzed to study combined indraft convection_thermal diffusion effects on oxygen distribution near intense fires. These effects enhance the local oxygen concentration, thermal diffusion ...
Shock Formation in Fluids Having Embedded Regions of Negative Nonlinearity
(AIP Publishing, 1986-07-01)
The steepening of one-dimensional finite-amplitude waves in inviscid Van der Waals gases is described. The undisturbed medium is taken to be unbounded, at rest and uniform. The specific heat is taken to be large enough to ...
CMGSDB: integrating heterogeneous Caenorhabditis elegans data sources using compositional data mining

Swelling-Induced Deformations: A Materials-Defined Transition from Macroscale to Microscale Deformations
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2013-05-10)
Swelling-induced deformations are common in many biological and industrial environments, and the shapes and patterns that emerge can vary across many length scales. Here we present an experimental study of a transition ...
The Mechanistic Influence of Aligned Nanofiber Networks on Cell Shape, Migration and Blebbing Dynamics of Glioma Cells
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2013-06-03)
Investigating the mechanistic influence of the tumor microenvironment on cancer cell migration and membrane blebbing is crucial in the understanding and eventual arrest of cancer metastasis. In this study, we investigate ...
