The percolation of water into soil can be modeled considering Darcy's Law in laminar flow. In this manner the key property is the coefficient of hydraulic conductivity. Its determination can be made through laboratory or field testing. One of the most known field tests used for determination of this property is the Slug Test. This test consists of a perforated well in the ground where a known ...

1. It is feasible to focus and guide nanoparticles with permanent magnets and ferromagnetic particles to achieve clinically significant olfactory dosages. 2. With appropriate magnetophoretic guidance and selective drug release, an olfactory delivery efficiency of more than 20% can be achieved. 3. The optimal particle size range for magnetophoretic guidance is 10−15 µm.

This paper presents the design and simulation of micromixer for Lab-On-Chip (LOC) applications. There are two types of micromixers: one is an active micromixer and another one is a passive micromixer. This paper investigates microfluidic flow characterization and mixing rate of two fluids in a micro- channel. Understanding the microfluidic flow at the micro channel is a develop methods of mixing ...

In response to continued miniaturization and increased multi-functionality of electronic circuits, the number of integrated circuit (IC) packages on the circuit board continues to increase. As a consequence the operating power density increases and significant increases in the operating temperature of devices result. To maintain operation and long term performance device temperature must be ...

Schistosoma mansoni parasites affect million people worldwide. The intensity of the infection can be evaluated by the number of eggs present in the stool of an infected individual. The application of the traditional methods has been regarded as impractical in developing areas and there is a continuous search for new techniques. In face of this scenario, a new method of diagnosis was explored in ...

Iodine absorber is a widely used purification equipment for purifying air in a nuclear power plant. In China, the common type is Ⅱ iodine absorber. Impregnated activated carbon is the main absorber within the iodine absorber. Because of the decays exothermic of radioactive iodine, heat is generated in the adsorption process. Carbon is a combustible material. Moreover, air is always supplied in ...

Polymer sheets are widely used for glazing and roofing structural applications. The primary design requirements of these polymeric sheets are to resist uniformly distributed wind loading. Conventional building materials such as steel and glass plates are relative stiffer compared to polymeric sheets. The deflection of high stiff plates is about an order lower than polymeric plates. Polymeric ...
