Prediction of tool temperature during machining of Ti-6Al-4V alloy with atomization-based cutting fluid spray system (2015-07-24)Atomization-based cutting fluid (ACF) spray system is being sought as an alternative to cooling processes currently used for machining difficult-to-cut materials such as Ti-6Al-4V alloy. The ACF spray system generates a ...
(2015-07-24)This thesis presents the development of a micrometer-scale chemical analysis method using a heated atomic force microscope(AFM) cantilever and mass spectrometer. Simulations investigate the underlying transport mechanisms ...
(2015-07-21)Industrial coatings are applied for their aesthetic appeal and ability to protect the underlying substrate material from the environment. The indication of coating flaws for correction becomes more important for coatings ...
Soft 3D fibrin matrices downregulate FAK expression to promote self-renewal of tumor-repopulating cells (2015-07-21)Tumor-repopulating cells are a highly tumorigenic subpopulation of cancer cells that exhibit stem cell-like properties (e.g. self-renewal). Previous reports have shown that soft 3D fibrin matrices promote self-renewal in ...
(2015-07-22)Nupr1 is a protein initially identified as a cancer cell marker, though its role in cancer cell metastasis and tumorigenesis is currently ambiguous. Here we identify Nupr1 as a mechanosensitive protein involved in the ...
