Stick-slip motion and controlled filling speed by the geometric design of soft micro-channels.

Summary of "Stick-slip motion and controlled filling speed by the geometric design of soft micro-channels."

Liquid can move by capillary action through interconnected porous materials, as in fabric or paper towels. Today mass transport is controlled by chemical modification. It is, however, possible to direct mass transport by geometrical modifications. It is here proposed that it is possible to tailor capillary flow speed in a model system of micro-channels by the angle, size and position of attached side channels.

Perception of the speed of self-motion vs. object-motion: Another example of two modes of vision?

We investigated the effect of reduced contrast on speed perception for two types of tasks: (a) the speed of a rotating image, an example of "object-motion," and (b) speed of travel when viewing wide-s...

Optimizing feed frame design and tableting process parameters to increase die-filling uniformity on a high-speed rotary tablet press.

Despite the high quantities of tablets produced daily, many tableting processes are still operated at sub-optimal settings and hence lack the necessary flexibility to mitigate for possible process dev...

Fast random motion biases judgments of visible and occluded motion speed.

Human sensitivity to speed differences is very high, and relatively high when one has to compare the speed of an object that disappears behind an occluder with a standard. Nevertheless, different spee...

Understanding Film-to-Stripe Transition of Conjugated Polymers Driven by Meniscus Instability.

Meniscus instability during meniscus-guided solution coating and printing of conjugated polymers has significant impact on the deposit morphology and the charge transport characteristics. The lack of ...

Precursors to Molecular Slip on Smooth Hydrophobic Surfaces.

Experiments and simulations suggest that simple liquids may experience slip while flowing near a smooth, hydrophobic surface. Here we show how precursors to molecular slip can be observed in the compl...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Architecture, exterior and interior design, and construction of facilities other than hospitals, e.g., dental schools, medical schools, ambulatory care clinics, and specified units of health care facilities. The concept also includes architecture, design, and construction of specialized contained, controlled, or closed research environments including those of space labs and stations.

An approach, process, or methodology which emphasizes credible evidence and the best available scientific knowledge, judiciously integrated to achieve the best possible outcomes in structural design. For example, the design of a new OUTPATIENT CLINIC might incorporate a review of published research on outpatient clinic design, decisions on similar past projects, along with interviews with staff and consumers.

Disorder caused by motion, as sea sickness, train sickness, car sickness, air sickness, or SPACE MOTION SICKNESS. It may include nausea, vomiting and dizziness.

Dental methods involving the use of DENTAL HIGH-SPEED EQUIPMENT.

The architecture, functional design, and construction of hospitals.
