Structural Mechanics: Shear stress in Beams (1st-Year)
Wall shear stress during plug propagates and ruptures in channel. Numerical computation. Solid curves: wall shear stress behind rear meniscus tip before rupture or along whole channel wall after rupture. Dashed curves: wall shear stress in front of rear meniscus tip before rupture. ASME SBC 2011.
Venaflux biochips, pumping solutions and analysis software to accurately mimic in vitro shear stress / shear flow rates found in vivo. (cellix, tebu-bio) Obtain data on cell rolling, adhesion and migration to antibody-coated or endothelial cell-cultured microcapillaries under venous or arterial physiological flow.
