      Evaluation of electrospun polymer-Fe3O4 nanocomposite mats in malachite green adsorption 

      Savva, I.; Marinica, O.; Papatryfonos, C. A.; Vekas, L.; Krasia-Christoforou, T. (2015)
      Magnetoactive nanocomposite fibers, based on poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO), poly(l-lactide) (PLLA) and pre-formed oleic acid-coated magnetite nanoparticles (OA·Fe3O4), were fabricated by electrospinning and evaluated for the ...

      On the analogy between streamlined magnetic and solid obstacles 

      Votyakov, E. V.; Kassinos, Stavros C. (2009)
      Analogies are elaborated in the qualitative description of two systems: the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow moving through a region where an external local magnetic field (magnetic obstacle) is applied and the ordinary ...

      Structure anisotropy in MHD turbulence subjected to mean shear and frame rotation 

      Kassinos, Stavros C.; Wray, A. (Affiliation: Dept. of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, University of Cyprus, Nicosia, CyprusAffiliation: Department of Mechanical Engineering, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305, United StatesAffiliation: Center for Turbulence Research, NASA Ames Research Center, United StatesCorrespondence Address: Kassinos, S.C.Dept. of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, University of Cyprus, Nicosia, Cyprusemail: kassinos@ucy.ac.cy, 2005)
      We consider homogeneous turbulence in a conducting fluid that is exposed to a uniform external magnetic field while being sheared in fixed and rotating frames. We take both the frame-rotation axis and the applied magnetic ...
