Separation of particles or cells has various applications in biotechnology, pharmaceutical and chemical industry. Inertial cell separation, in particular, has been gaining a great attention in the recent years since it has exhibited a label-free, high-throughput and efficient performance. In this work, first, an inertial contraction–expansion array microchannel device, capable of passively separating two particles with diameters of 4 and 10 μm, was numerically studied. Then, the validated model was combined with curved geometries in order to investigate the effect of curve features on the separation process. The overall purpose was to investigate the interaction between the two different...

In this study, fatigue, corrosion fatigue and electrochemical behaviors of butt-welded A106-B steel pipes were investigated. These pipes were subjected to mechanical and thermal cyclic stresses due to the internal pressure fluctuations and cooling-heating cycles. Residual stress measurements were carried out for three different depths through the thickness and were correlated to the microstructural observations and microhardness measurements. Results showed that the maximum tensile residual stresses existed at the boundary of weld metal and base metal because of the contraction-expansion effects resulting from phase transformations and cooling rate differences. Fatigue fractures occurred at...
