(2017-11-14)Metastable polymers that depolymerize in response to environmental stimuli to change shape, form, or function have garnered increased research interest in recent years. Demonstrated applications include signal amplification, ...
Critical stresses for twinning, slip and transformation in shape memory alloys: modeling and experiments (2017-09-13)There are four important parameters-(i) transformation stress (ii) twinning stress (iii) austenite slip stress and (iv) martensite slip stress that govern shape memory and superelastic behavior in shape memory alloys (SMAs). ...
A combined modeling and experimental study assessing the impact of fluid pulsation and operating schemes on charge and energy efficiency in capacitive deionization (2017-12-15)Cell-cycling performance in capacitive deionization (CDI) can suffer from various charge-efficiency loss mechanisms. In conventional CDI, we show that salt residue within electrodes introduces a temporal lag between charge ...
(2017-12-12)Displacement speed of a flame is a hydrodynamic concept, and it is defined as the normal component of the velocity of the incoming flow evaluated on the unburned side of the flame. Except for a steadily propagating flame ...
(2017-12-08)The hydrodynamic instability which results from large density variations between the fresh mixture and the hot combustion products was discovered by Darrieus and Landau over seventy years ago, and has been named after its ...
