Summary of "Toward a nonequilibrium Stokes-Einstein relation via active microrheology of hydrodynamically interacting colloidal dispersions."

We derive a theoretical model for the nonequilibrium stress in a flowing colloidal suspension by tracking the motion of a single embedded probe. While Stokes-Einstein relations connect passive, observable diffusion of a colloidal particle to properties of the suspending medium, they are limited to linear response. Actively forcing a probe through a suspension produces nonequilibrium stress that at steady state can be related directly to observable probe motion utilizing an equation of motion rather than an equation of state, giving a nonequilibrium Stokes-Einstein relation [J. Rheol., 2012, 56, 1175-1208]. Here that freely-draining theory is expanded to account for hydrodynamic interactions. To do so, we construct an effective hydrodynamic resistance tensor, through which the particle flux is projected to give the advective and diffusive components of a Cauchy momentum balance. The resultant phenomenological relation between suspension stress, viscosity and diffusivity is a generalized nonequilibrium Stokes-Einstein relation. The phenomenological model is compared with the statistical mechanics theory for dilute suspensions as well as dynamic simulation at finite concentration which show good agreement, indicating that the suspension stress, viscosity, and force-induced diffusion in a flowing colloidal dispersion can be obtained simply by tracking the motion of a single Brownian probe.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition of fainting spells caused by heart block, often an atrioventricular block, that leads to BRADYCARDIA and drop in CARDIAC OUTPUT. When the cardiac output becomes too low, the patient faints (SYNCOPE). In some cases, the syncope attacks are transient and in others cases repetitive and persistent.

Molecules that contain multiple active sites which are used to catalyze more than one enzymatic reaction. Proteins in this class generally contain multiple active sites within a single peptide chain and may also contain more than one enzymatically active subunit. They are distinguished from MULTIENZYME COMPLEXES in that their subunits are not found as distinct enzymes.

An abnormal pattern of breathing characterized by alternating periods of apnea and deep, rapid breathing. The cycle begins with slow, shallow breaths that gradually increase in depth and rate and is then followed by a period of apnea. The period of apnea can last 5 to 30 seconds, then the cycle repeats every 45 seconds to 3 minutes.

A set of opposing, nonequilibrium reactions catalyzed by different enzymes which act simultaneously, with at least one of the reactions driven by ATP hydrolysis. The results of the cycle are that ATP energy is depleted, heat is produced and no net substrate-to-product conversion is achieved. Examples of substrate cycling are cycling of gluconeogenesis and glycolysis pathways and cycling of the triglycerides and fatty acid pathways. Rates of substrate cycling may be increased many-fold in association with hypermetabolic states resulting from severe burns, cold exposure, hyperthyroidism, or acute exercise.

Awareness of oneself in relation to time, place and person.
