(2018-12-13)Fluidic devices operating at the micro- and milli-meter scales employ several fundamental tasks involving pumping, mixing, separation, sorting, storing and transport of different fluids (or) species. An attractive fluid ...
(2018-12-11)Acquiring quantitative experimental data of explosive fireballs at early time scales is crucial for validating 1-D numerical models of spherical charges. While numerical modeling remains a powerful tool for elucidating ...
Use of absorption laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy in characterization of actinide species and oxides (2018-12-11)Spectroscopy in its many utilities presents the ability to remotely sense species present in potentially hazardous conditions. Of recent interest is the development of technologies to detect the presence of actinide ...
(2018-12-07)Helical strands, or helically wound cables, are made of layers of individual wires wrapped around a common central axis. They are seen in ropes and power transmission cables. Similar structures are also present in biological ...
(2018-12-03)Over time-scales short enough that wind is relatively steady (.10 minutes), wind-power variability is due to atmospheric turbulence. Power ﬂuctuations at time scales such as these are important for maintaining frequency ...
