  • Bhattacharjee, Pratik; Riahi, Daniel N. (Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 2003-02)
    Effect of rotation on nonlinear solutal convection during protein cystallization is modelled and studied computationally under both normal and microgravity conditions. The axis of the externally imposed rotation, which is ...

  • Damljanovic, Vesna; Weaver, Richard L. (Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 2001-05)
    We consider wave propagation in slender elastic waveguides. With aim at finding all vibration modes of such bodies, we develop a theoretical framework for application of energy principles and subsequent discretization of ...

  • Phillips, W.R.C. (Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 2001-11)
    Langmuir circulations in the open ocean typically form in an environment of surface waves and a shear current, and a mechanism which exploits these features and leads to shear-aligned longitudinal vortices much like Langmuir ...
