Multiferroic Core-Shell Nanofibers, Assembly in a Magnetic Field, and Studies on Magneto-Electric Interactions
Ferromagnetic–ferroelectric nanocomposites are of interest for realizing strong strain-mediated coupling between electric and magnetic subsystems due to a high surface area-to-volume ratio. This report is on the synthesis ...
Drug voyager: a computational platform for exploring unintended drug action
Abstract Background The dominant paradigm in understanding drug action focuses on the intended therapeutic effects and frequent adverse reactions. However, this approach may ...
Efficient approximation of Sparse Jacobians for time-implicit reduced order models
Multi-tissue interactions in an integrated three-tissue organ-on-a-chip platform
(Springer Nature, 2017-08-18)
Many drugs have progressed through preclinical and clinical trials and have been available - for years in some cases -before being recalled by the FDA for unanticipated toxicity in humans. One reason for such poor translation ...
Review of MEMS differential scanning calorimetry for biomolecular study
Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is one of the few techniques that allow direct determination of enthalpy values for binding reactions and conformational transitions in biomolecules. It provides the thermodynamics ...
Anisotropic hydrogen diffusion in alpha-Zr and Zircaloy predicted by accelerated kinetic Monte Carlo simulations
(Springer Nature, 2017-01-20)
This report presents an accelerated kinetic Monte Carlo (KMC) method to compute the diffusivity of hydrogen in hcp metals and alloys, considering both thermally activated hopping and quantum tunneling. The acceleration is ...
Stopping power beyond the adiabatic approximation
(Springer Nature, 2017-06-01)
Energetic ions traveling in solids deposit energy in a variety of ways, being nuclear and electronic stopping the two avenues in which dissipation is usually treated. This separation between electrons and ions relies on ...
Analyzing the Molecular Kinetics of Water Spreading on Hydrophobic Surfaces via Molecular Dynamics Simulation
(Springer Nature, 2017-09-07)
In this paper, we report molecular kinetic analyses of water spreading on hydrophobic surfaces via molecular dynamics simulation. The hydrophobic surfaces are composed of amorphous polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) with a ...
Engineering Student's Ethical Awareness and Behavior: A New Motivational Model
Professional communities are experiencing scandals involving unethical and illegal practices daily. Yet it should not take a national major structure failure to highlight the importance of ethical awareness and behavior, ...
Dell's SupportAssist customer adoption model: enhancing the next generation of data-intensive support services
We developed a decision support system to model, analyze, and improve market adoption of Dell's SupportAssist program. SupportAssist is a proactive and preventive support service capability that can monitor system operations ...
