  • dynamics
  • A good understanding of the liquid droplet dynamics of the spray will help the engineers to design the high efficient facilities under optimized operating parameters. (hindawi.com)
  • Although the operation of spray system is simple, due to the complexity of the two-phase turbulent flow, the actual physical flow phenomena are still lacking complete understanding of the fluid dynamics [ 1 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • peptides
  • Mann and co-workers have shown that peptide-nucleotide coacervate droplets are promising membrane-free model organelles that sequester a variety of organic and inorganic molecules and promote secondary structure formation in peptides. (rsc.org)
  • bubble
  • We evaluate a potential foam's ability to suppress a fire by measuring extinction time in a small-scale burning fuel pool, the transient fuel transport through a foam using spectroscopy, and foam properties such as bubble size and liquid drainage rate, relevant for firefighting. (navy.mil)
  • Aggregation
  • If we can better understand what causes aggregation, and how to keep things more liquid, we might have a chance to combat these types of disease," Strom added. (lbl.gov)
  • proteins
  • Karpen pointed to diseases like Alzheimer's and Huntington's, in which proteins misfold and aggregate, becoming less liquid and more solid over time. (lbl.gov)
  • researchers
  • In this new study of early Drosophila embryos, the researchers observed two non-mixing liquids in the cell nucleus: one that contained expressed genes, and one that contained silenced heterochromatin. (lbl.gov)
  • In lab experiments, researchers purified heterochromatin protein 1a (HP1a), a main component of heterochromatin, and saw that this single component was able to recreate what they saw in the nucleus by forming liquid droplets. (lbl.gov)
  • The Berkeley Lab study, which used fruit fly and mouse cells, will be published alongside a companion paper in Nature led by UC San Francisco researchers , who showed that the human version of the HP1a protein has the same liquid droplet properties, suggesting that similar principles hold for human heterochromatin. (lbl.gov)
  • Using atomic force microscopy the researchers identified that at around 120 C in the crystal formed a bilayer crystal phase. (nanowerk.com)
  • In the absence of a change in grain size or contact resistance, the researchers concluded that crystal-to-crystal phase change from a monolayer to a bilayer structure was responsible for the improved transistor performance in annealed devices. (nanowerk.com)
  • control
  • A highly flexible phase control system was developed in order to dynamically adjust the parallel wave number spectrum of driven LH waves on Alcator C-Mod. (mit.edu)
  • With the maturity of this platform technology, sophisticated and delicate control of the droplet generation process is needed to address increasingly complex applications. (rsc.org)
  • 28 More recently, Keating and co-workers showed that an alternative composition allows enzymatic control over both formation and disassembly of coacervate droplets, by respective dephosphorylation and phosphorylation of the serine residues of the peptide. (rsc.org)
  • diffusion
  • Modeling efforts also include Navier-Stokes equations describing foam fire suppression mechanisms characterizing the foam surface cooling effect on liquid pool fires and the diffusion of fuel through fluorinated and fluorine-free foams. (navy.mil)
  • A multidimensional diffusion flux mixture model was developed to simulate water jet two-phase flows. (hindawi.com)
  • processes
  • 3,14-21 The liquid-like nature and absence of an encapsulating membrane give rise to a direct link with processes taking place in the cytoplasm or nucleoplasm, 3 providing for functions such as sequestration, buffering and reaction rate modulation. (rsc.org)
  • study
  • Ruck and Makiola [ 2 ] used a laser Doppler anemometer (LDA) to study the gas-oil droplet passing over a backward facing step. (hindawi.com)
  • 4 ] used a monochrome charge-coupled device CCD camera to study the growth of the droplets. (hindawi.com)
  • laser
  • It might seem that every small object imaginable has been levitated in a laser trap, and liquid droplets are one of the favorite things that have been used. (sciencemag.org)
  • energy
  • At the liquid/liquid interface, an energy imbalance leads to instability and droplet breakup. (rsc.org)
  • His research has pioneered different approaches to manipulate droplets and bubbles using thermal, magnetic, acoustic and electric energy. (rsc.org)
  • Fraction
  • Background Liquid phase cholesteryl ester comprises a major fraction of atherosclerotic plaque, and its abundance is associated with plaque rupture and atherothrombosis. (onlinejacc.org)
  • addition
  • Droplets can be generated within a minute following the addition of phosphoenolpyruvate as a substrate, and they can be dissolved within tens of seconds by adding glucose as the second substrate. (rsc.org)
