Choosing good problems is essential for being a good scientist. But what is a good problem, and how do you choose one? The subject is not usually discussed explicitly within our profession. Scientists are expected to be smart enough to figure it out…

In 1960, R.E. Kalman published his famous paper describing a recursive solution to the discretedata linear filtering problem. Since that time, due in large part to advances in digital computing, the Kalman filter has been the subject of extensive…

Insights into conducting research and the writing of scientific papers are given by Prof. Whitesides in this short essay. The manuscript and its guidelines has been circulated within the Whitesides' research group since 1989.

To evaluate the area of the midbrain and pons on midsagittal MRI in patients with progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), Parkinson disease (PD), and multiplesystem atrophy of the Parkinson type (MSAP), compare these appearances and values with…

This paper presents an analytical model and a geometric numerical integrator for a tethered spacecraft model that is composed of two rigid bodies connected by an elastic tether. This model includes important dynamic characteristics of tethered…

We present an overview of how the arterial fluid mechanics problems can be modeled with the stabilized space–time fluid–structure interaction (SSTFSI) technique developed by the Team for Advanced Flow Simulation and Modeling (TAFSM). The SSTFSI…

Mycotoxins are small (MW approximately 700), toxic chemical products formed as secondary metabolites by a few fungal species that readily colonise crops and contaminate them with toxins in the field or after harvest. Ochratoxins and Aflatoxins are…

Considerable confusion surrounds the longstanding question of what constitutes a vortex, especially in a turbulent flow. This question, frequently misunderstood as academic, has recently acquired particular significance since coherent structures…

This bestselling book in the field provides a complete introduction to the physical origins of heat and mass transfer. Noted for its crystal clear presentation and easytofollow problem solving methodology, Incropera and Dewitt's systematic…

Predicting the binding mode of flexible polypeptides to proteins is an important task that falls outside the domain of applicability of most small molecule and protein−protein docking tools. Here, we test the small molecule flexible ligand docking…

Procedures to define boundary conditions for NavierStokes equations are discussed. A new formulation using characteristic wave relations through boundaries is derived for the Euler equations and generalized to the NavierStokes equations. The…

We review the direct numerical simulation (DNS) of turbulent flows. We stress that DNS is a research tool, and not a bruteforce solution to the NavierStokes equations for engineering problems. The wide range of scales in turbulent flows requires…

The objective of this case study was to obtain some firsthand information about the functional consequences of a cosmetic tongue split operation for speech and tongue motility. One male patient who had performed the operation on himself was…

This text is the translation and revision of Schlichting's classic text in boundary layer theory. The main areas covered are laws of motion for a viscous fluid, laminar boundary layers, transition and turbulence, and turbulent boundary layers.

Several numerical schemes for the solution of hyperbolic conservation laws are based on exploiting the information obtained by considering a sequence of Riemann problems. It is argued that in existing schemes much of this information is degraded,…

As in the first and second editions, the book revolves around the fact that turbulence modeling is one of three key elements in CFD. Very precise mathematical theories have evolved for the other two, viz., grid generation and algorithm development.…

Finite difference schemes providing an improved representation of a range of scales (spectrallike resolution) in the evaluation of first, second, and higher order derivatives are presented and compared with wellknown schemes. The schemes may be…

The flight of insects has fascinated physicists and biologists for more than a century. Yet, until recently, researchers were unable to rigorously quantify the complex wing motions of flapping insects or measure the forces and flows around their…

The present paper deals with the twodimensional numerical simulation of gaseous flow and heat transfer in planar microchannel and nanochannel with different wall temperatures in transitional regime 0.1Kn1 . An atomistic molecular simulation method…
