Response surface methodology as a powerful tool to optimize the synthesis of polymer-based graphene oxide nanocomposites for simultaneous removal of cationic and anionic heavy metal contaminants
(RSC Advances, 3/28/2017)
Nanocomposites containing graphene oxide (GO), polyethyleneimine (PEI), and chitosan (CS) were synthesized for chromium(VI) and copper(II) removal from water. Response surface methodology (RSM) was used for the optimization ...
Correlation of Cross-Axis Eye Movements and Motoneuron Activity in Non-Human Primates with “A” Pattern Strabismus
(Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science, 2/1/2007)
Purpose: The authors showed earlier that animals reared with certain types of visual sensory deprivation during their first few months of life develop large horizontal strabismus, A/V patterns, and dissociated vertical ...
Effects of particle settling on Rayleigh-Bénard convection
(Physical Review E, 6/20/2013)
The effect of particles falling under gravity in a weakly turbulent Rayleigh-Bénard gas flow is studied numerically. The particle Stokes number is varied between 0.01 and 1 and their temperature is held fixed at the ...
Spiraling bubbles: How acoustic and hydrodynamic forces compete
(Physical Review Letters, 5/21/2001)
Experiments to study the effect of acoustic forces on individual bubbles in shear flows have been carried out. In the system that we have used, the competition between acoustic and fluid dynamical forces results in a ...
The Influence of Salinity, pH, Temperature and Particles on Produced Water Oil Quantification Precision and Accuracy with Confocal Laser Fluorescence Microscopy
(Energy and Fuels, 5/24/2018)
The present study investigates the effects of different produced water parameters, such as salinity, pH, temperature, and presence of colloidal particles, in oil quantification using confocal laser fluorescence microscopy ...
Applicability of Infrared Photorefraction for Measurement of Accommodation in Awake-Behaving Normal and Strabismic Monkeys
(Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science, 2/1/2009)
Purpose: This study was designed to use infrared photorefraction to measure accommodation in awake-behaving normal and strabismic monkeys and describe properties of photorefraction calibrations in these monkeys. Methods: ...
Examples of Air-Entraining Flows
(The Physics of Fluids, 1992-04)
Four examples of air?entraining flows at the free surface of a liquid are briefly considered: (a) the transient impact of a jet, (b) the application of an excess pressure, (c) two counter?rotating vortices below the surface, ...
Role of Air in Granular Jet Formation
(Physical Review Letters, 7/6/2007)
A steel ball impacting on a bed of very loose, fine sand results in a surprisingly vigorous jet which shoots up from the surface of the sand [D. Lohse et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 93, 198003 (2004)]. When the ambient pressure ...
Spatial dependence of fluctuations and flux in turbulent Rayleigh-B ?enard convection
(Physical Review E, 11/26/2012)
Collapse of One-Dimensional Cavities in Compressible Liquids
(The Physics of Fluids, 1972-10)
The collapse of a one-dimensional cavity in a compressible, inviscid liquid is treated exactly. Results of numerical computations for some specific examples are presented.
