Modified multiplicative decomposition model for tissue growth: Beyond the initial stress-free state
The multiplicative decomposition model is widely employed for predicting residual stresses and morphologies of biological tissues due to growth. However, it relies on the assumption that the tissue is initially in a ...
The combustion kinetics of the lignocellulosic biofuel, ethyl levulinate
Ethyl levulinate (Ethyl 4-oxopentanoate) is a liquid molecule at ambient temperature, comprising of ketone and ethyl ester functionalities and is one of the prominent liquid fuel candidates that may be easily obtained from ...
A phosphate-targeted dinuclear Cu(II) complex combining major groove binding and oxidative DNA cleavage
(Oxford University Press, 2018-09-17)
Free radical generation is an inevitable consequence of aerobic existence and is implicated in a wide variety of pathological conditions including cancer, cardiovascular disease, ageing and neurodegenerative disorder. Free ...
An experimental and chemical kinetic modeling study of 1,3-butadiene combustion: Ignition delay time and laminar flame speed measurements
Ignition delay times for 1,3-butadiene oxidation were measured in five different shock tubes and in a rapid compression machine (RCM) at thermodynamic conditions relevant to practical combustors. The ignition delay times ...
A comparative study of the effect of varied reaction environments on a swirl stabilized flame geometry via optical measurements
The present work is a part of a larger experimental campaign which examines the behaviour of various fuels on a swirl stabilized flame burner configuration. Overall, detailed speciation measurements and temperature ...
Genus two partition and correlation functions for fermionic vertex operator superalgebras II
We define and compute the continuous orbifold partition function and a generating function for all n-point correlation functions for the rank two free fermion vertex operator superalgebra on a genus two Riemann surface ...
N=2 and N=4 subalgebras of super vertex operator algebras
(IOP Publishing, 2018-01-10)
We develop criteria to decide if an N=2 or N=4 super conformal algebra is a subalgebra of a super vertex operator algebra in general, and of a super lattice theory in particular. We give some specific examples.
Design of experiments approach to provide enhanced glucose-oxidising enzyme electrode for membrane-less enzymatic fuel cells operating in human physiological fluids
Graphite electrodes are modified with a redox polymer, [Os(4,4-dimethoxy-2,2-bipyridine)(2)(polyvinylimidazole)(10)Cl](+) (E degrees=-0.02V vs Ag/AgCl (3M KCl), crosslinked with a flavin adenine dinucleotide glucose ...
An experimental, theoretical, and modeling study of the ignition behavior of cyclopentanone
The ignition delay times of cyclopentanone in air were measured using a high pressure shock tube (HPST) and a rapid compression machine (RCM) over the temperature range of 794-1368 K at P = 15 and 30 bar and at equivalence ...
Species measurements of the particulate matter reducing additive tri–propylene glycol monomethyl ether
Reducing particulate matter formation and emissions by using fuel additives is a topic of interest for the petrochemical and automotive engineering industries. A compound which has been shown to be effective in this regard ...
