Renormalization group theory for percolation and application to transport properties of random media
A renormalization group method in real space is applied to the study of transport properties of random media. In particular, the method is applied to the study of the electrical properties of disordered materials and the ...
Effect of laminar shear stress on gene regulation, protein synthesis, and protein secretion by cultured human endothelial cells
To test the hypothesis that wall shear stress generated by blood flow may regulate endothelial cell expression of blood clot dissolving proteins or vasoactive proteins, an in vitro perfusion system was used to expose human ...
Statistical mechanics and kinetics of hydrogen vacancy interaction of metals
Several important aspects of hydrogen vacancy interaction are discussed with a physical model as well as numerical methods for the model presented. A statistical mechanical model was first introduced to calculate the ...
A study of the fluid mechanics and the cultivation of mammalian cells in a magnetically stabilized fluidized bed bioreactor
The culture of anchorage dependent mammalian cells on microcarrier offers an attractive avenue for achieving high productivity of therapeutic and diagnostic proteins in bioreactors. Reducing production costs require high ...
Methane emission from irrigated rice cultivation: Quantities, models and practice
Three experiments focused on the contribution of rice productivity to methane emission were conducted in Texas flooded rice paddy soils during 1994-95 growing seasons. Measurements of methane emission from different rice ...
Hybrid FE-BE formulation for coupled dynamic poroelastoplastic analysis of soil-structure systems
A hybrid finite element-boundary element formulation is developed for the nonlinear seismic analysis of 2D soil-structure systems that contain fully or partially saturated soils. The proposed formulation aims at combining ...
