Amphiphilic polymethacrylate model conetworks: Synthesis by RAFT radical polymerization and characterization of the swelling behavior
(2006)Reversible additionfragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) controlled radical polymerization was employed, for the first time, to prepare welldefined (model) amphiphilic polymer conetworks based on nbutyl methacrylate ...

Analysis and passive control of a fourbar linkage for the rehabilitation of upperlimb motion
(American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2015)In the last two decades robotic rehabilitation research provided significant insight regarding the humanrobot interaction, helped understand the process by which the impaired nervous system is retrained to better control ...

Article
An analysis of laminar fluid flow in porous tube and shell systems
(1991)The finite element method was used to study steady, incompressible, laminar flow in porous tube systems. The NavierStokes equations were used to describe the flow phenomena in the tube and shell space while the continuum ...

Article
Analytic models of heterogenous magnetic fields for liquid metal flow simulations
(2009)A physically consistent approach is considered for defining an external magnetic field as needed in computational fluid dynamics problems involving magnetohydrodynamics (MHD). The approach results in simple analytical ...

An analytical solution for rapidly distorted turbulent shear flow in a rotating frame
(2006)In this study we apply rapid distortion theory to the case of nonstratified homogeneous turbulence that is sheared in a frame that counterrotates at a rate that matches in magnitude the rotation associated with the mean ...

Analytical target cascading for the design of an advanced technology heavy truck
(American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), 2002)Analytical target cascading (ATC) is a methodology that can be used during the early development stages of large and complex systems for propagating desirable overall product targets to appropriate individual specifications ...

Article
Analyzing a turbulent pipe flow via the onepoint structure tensors: Vorticity crawlers and streak shadows
(2016)Efforts to identify and visualize nearwall structures typically focus on the region y+≳5, where largescale structures with significant turbulent kinetic energy content reside, such as the highspeed and lowspeed streaks ...

Article
Angiotensin inhibition enhances drug delivery and potentiates chemotherapy by decompressing tumour blood vessels
(2013)Cancer and stromal cells actively exert physical forces (solid stress) to compress tumour blood vessels, thus reducing vascular perfusion. Tumour interstitial matrix also contributes to solid stress, with hyaluronan ...

Article
Anisotropy of the optical dielectric function in the ab plane for YBa2Cu3O7
(1992)We report ellipsometric measurements from surfaces of three singlecrystal samples of YBa2Cu3O7. Two of the samples were untwinned with Tc=90 and 66 K. The third sample was a tetragonal single crystal with low oxygen content ...

Article
Anisotropy of the resistivity in the ab plane of a superconducting YBa2Cu3O7δ single crystal
(1996)We have measured the inplane longitudinal resistivities pa and pb as functions of temperature and magnetic field. The measurements were all made on the same detwinned single crystal of YBa2Cu3O7δ (YBCO). Defining Tc to ...

Application of a New Algebraic StructureBased Model to Rotating Turbulent Flows
(Elsevier, 2005)This chapter discusses application of a new algebraic structurebased model to rotating turbulent flows. A primary goal of Reynolds averaged NavierStokes (RANSbased modeling is to determine the Reynolds stress tensor in ...

ASBMBSL: An easy access to the structure based model technology
(2011)The Algebraic Structure Based Model (ASBM) offers unique features to represent the Reynolds stress tensor from the underlying turbulent structures. It is usually coupled with a non standard length scale equation. A way of ...

Article
The ASBMSA turbulence closure: Taking advantage of structurebased modeling in current engineering CFD codes
(2015)Structurebased turbulence models (SBM) carry information about the turbulence structure that is needed for the prediction of complex nonequilibrium flows. SBM have been successfully used to predict a number of canonical ...

Assignment of natural frequencies by an added mass and one or more springs
(2004)The problem of assigning natural frequencies to a multidegreeoffreedom undamped system by an added mass connected by one or more springs is addressed. The added mass and stiffnesses are determined using receptances from ...

Article
Atemplatebased modeling approach for system design: Theory and implementation
(1996)Previous research has developed search algorithms for deducing Proper Models (minimum complexity models with physically meaningful parameters) of dynamic systems. It has also been proposed that these Proper Models can be ...
