The kinetics of human platelet aggregation and disaggregation in controlled shear fields
The objectives of this research are to contribute to a better understanding of human platelet involvement in vascular disease. To accomplish this, both the laser light scattering technique and the population balance equation ...
A study on the resistances to oxygen transport in the microcirculation
A study on the resistances to oxygen transport in the microcirculation has been conducted. In Part I of this work, the oxygen permeability of cultured bovine aortic and human umbilical vein endothelial cell monolayers was ...
Red blood cell damage by shearing stress: a study on secondary effects in the concentric cylinder viscometer
The causes of red cell damage in artificial prostheses have been studied by several investigators. The effects of shearing stresses on cells have been investigated in the concentric cylinder viscometer. It has been ...
Numerical solutions for laminar flow heat transfer and pressure drop in circular tubes for variable property fluids
A numerical solution was developed for steady state heat transfer and pressure drop through circular tubes from the coupled equations of motion and energy. The energy equation was integrated numerically by use of finite ...
A numerical finite difference solution to a jet impinging on a liquid surface
A numerical finite difference solution to the problem of a two dimensional gas jet impinging on a liquid surface at right angles has been obtained in this work. For an idealized situation of flow, the liquid surface profiles ...
Numerical solutions for flow development and heat transfer of variable viscosity fluids
The equations of change for developing flow and heat transfer in a tube were solved by an implicit numerical technique on the IBM 1620 computer. Radial heat convection and the inertial terms in the equation of momentum, ...
