  • Taylor, Richard; Eagar, Thomas W. (Springer-Verlag, 2016-03)
    Flexible water hoses (or flexible hose connectors) have become commonplace in recent years and provide a low-cost and convenient alternative to rigid pipe. Unfortunately, inadequate designs, particularly with regard to the ...
  • Stribling, Jeremy; Sovran, Yair; Zhang, Irene; Pretzer, Xavid F.; Li, Jinyang; Kaashoek, M. Frans; Morris, Robert Tappan (USENIX Association, 2009-04)
    WheelFS is a wide-area distributed storage system intended to help multi-site applications share data and gain fault tolerance. WheelFS takes the form of a distributed file system with a familiar POSIX interface. Its design ...
  • Jordt, Andreas; Maes, Patricia; Steimle, Jurgen (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013-04)
    Flexpad is an interactive system that combines a depth camera and a projector to transform sheets of plain paper or foam into flexible, highly deformable, and spatially aware handheld displays. We present a novel approach ...
  • Ozawa, Midori; Uchiyama, Hideki; Nakajima, Hiroshi; Mori, Hideyuki; Matsumoto, Hironori; Tsuru, Takeshi Go; Koyama, Katsuji; Uchino, Masahiro; Hayashida, Kiyoshi; Tsunemi, Hiroshi; Murakami, Hiroshi; Dotani, Tadayasu; Prigozhin, Gregory; Kissel, Steve E.; Miller, Eric D.; La Marr, Beverly J.; Bautz, Marshall W. (Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2008-07)
    The X-ray Imaging Spectrometer (XIS) on board the Suzaku satellite is an X-ray CCD camera system that has features of a low background, high quantum efficiency, and good energy resolution in the 0.2 - 12 keV band. Because ...
  • Maghrebi, Mohammad F.; Kardar, Mehran; Kruger, Matthias (American Physical Society, 2016-01)
    Fluctuation and dissipation are byproducts of coupling to the “environment.” The Caldeira-Leggett model, a successful paradigm of quantum Brownian motion, views the environment as a collection of harmonic oscillators ...
  • Chen, Hongsheng; Chen, Min (Elsevier B.V., 2011-01)
    Charged particles moving faster than light in a medium produce Cherenkov radiation. In traditional, positive index-of-refraction materials this radiation travels forward. Metamaterials, with negative indices of refraction, ...
  • Hacon, Christopher D.; McKernan, James (World Scientific, 2010-08)
    Flips and flops are elementary birational maps which first appear in dimension three. We give examples of how flips and flops appear in many different contexts. We describe the minimal model program and some recent progress ...
  • LaCasce, Joseph H.; Balwada, D.; Speer, K.; Ferrari, Raffaele; Marshall, John C.; Tulloch, Ross (American Meteorological Society, 2014-02)
    As part of the Diapycnal and Isopycnal Mixing Experiment in the Southern Ocean (DIMES), 210 subsurface floats were deployed west of the Drake Passage on two targeted density surfaces. Absolute (single particle) diffusivities ...
  • Wehrheim, Katrin; Woodward, Chris T. (Elsevier, 2011-12)
    We prove an isomorphism of Floer cohomologies under geometric composition of Lagrangian correspondences in exact and monotone settings.
  • Montone, A.; Santambrogio, Marco Domenico; Redaelli, F.; Sciuto, D. (Hindawi, 2011)
    We presented a resource- and configuration-aware floorplacement framework, tailored for Xilinx Virtex 4 and 5 FPGAs, using an objective function based on external wirelength. Our work aims at identifying groups of ...
  • Rominger, Jeffrey Tsaros; Nepf, Heidi (Cambridge University Press, 2011-06)
    The flow at the leading edge and in the interior of a rectangular porous obstruction is described through experiments and scaling. The porous obstruction consists of an emergent, rectangular array of cylinders in shallow ...
  • Chen, Zhengbing; Jiang, Chunbo; Nepf, Heidi (American Geophysical Union, 2013-09)
    This paper describes the transition from open channel flow to flow over submerged vegetation using velocity measurements collected with acoustic Doppler velocimetry (ADV) and particle-image velocimetry (PIV). Submerged ...
  • Zong, Lijun; Nepf, Heidi (Elsevier, 2010-04)
    This laboratory study describes the flow and deposition observed in and around a finite patch of vegetation located at the wall of a channel. Two patch densities are considered with 2% and 10% solid volume fraction. The ...
  • Li, Xian-Xiang; Koh, Tieh-Yong; Britter, Rex E; Norford, Leslie Keith; Entekhabi, Dara (Springer Netherlands, 2011-11)
    A validated large-eddy simulation model was employed to study the effect of the aspect ratio and ground heating on the flow and pollutant dispersion in urban street canyons. Three ground-heating intensities (neutral, weak ...
  • Nepf, Heidi (Annual Reviews, 2012-01)
    This review describes mean and turbulent flow and mass transport in the presence of aquatic vegetation. Within emergent canopies, the turbulent length scales are set by the stem diameter and spacing, and the mean flow is ...
  • Li, Cheri Yingjie; Wood, David K.; Huang, Joanne; Bhatia, Sangeeta N. (Royal Society of Chemistry, The, 2013-03)
    The cancer microenvironment, which incorporates interactions with stromal cells, extracellular matrix (ECM), and other tumor cells in a 3-dimensional (3D) context, has been implicated in every stage of cancer development, ...
  • Li, Yanfei; Hu, Miao; McKenna, Gregory B.; Dimitriou, Christopher J.; McKinley, Gareth H.; Mick, Rebecca M.; Venerus, David C.; Archer, Lynden A. (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2013-08)
    Using self-designed particle visualization instrumentation, startup shear and step-strain tests were conducted under a series of systematically varied rheological and geometrical conditions, and the velocity profiles in ...
  • Nepf, Heidi; Luhar, Mitul (American Society of Limnology and Oceanography, 2011-11)
    Plant posture can play a key role in the health of aquatic vegetation, by setting drag, controlling light availability, and mediating the exchange of nutrients and oxygen. We study the flow-induced reconfiguration of ...
  • Demirci, Utkan; Hasan, Tayyaba; Rizvi, Imran; Gurkan, Umut Atakan; Tasoglu, Savas; Alagic, Nermina; Celli, Jonathan P.; Mensah, Lawrence B.; Mai, Zhiming (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2013-05)
    Seventy-five percent of patients with epithelial ovarian cancer present with advanced-stage disease that is extensively disseminated intraperitoneally and prognosticates the poorest outcomes. Primarily metastatic within ...
  • Hutchinson, Ian H.; Patacchini, Leonardo (Institute of Physics, 2010-11)
    Recent computational and theoretical progress in understanding and calculating ion collection by negatively charged absorbing objects in a flowing plasma is outlined. The results are placed in the context of key theoretical ...
