    Simulation of red blood cell motion in microvessels using modified moving particle semi-implicit method

    , Article Scientia Iranica ; Volume 19, Issue 1 , 2012 , Pages 113-118 ; 10263098 (ISSN) Ahmadian, M. T ; Firoozbakhsh, K ; Hasanian, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Red Blood Cells (RBCs) are the main cells in human blood, with a main role in the mechanical properties of blood as a fluid. Several methods have been improved to simulate the mechanical behavior of RBC in micro-capillaries. Since, in microscopic scales, using discrete models is more preferred than continuum methods, the Moving Particle Semi-Implicit method (MPS), which is a recent innovative particle based method, can simulate micro-fluidic flows based on NavierStokes equations. Although, by recent developments, the MPS method has turned into a considerable tool for modeling blood flow in micro meter dimensions, some problems, such as a commitment to use small time step sizes, still... 

    Application of pyrolytic graphite modified with nano-diamond/graphite film for simultaneous voltammetric determination of epinephrine and uric acid in the presence of ascorbic acid

    , Article Electrochimica Acta ; Volume 55, Issue 28 , 2010 , Pages 9090-9096 ; 00134686 (ISSN) Shahrokhian, S ; Khafaji, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    A novel modified pyrolytic graphite electrode with nano-diamond/graphite was fabricated. The electrochemical response characteristics of the modified electrode toward the epinephrine (EN) and uric acid (UA) were studied by means of cyclic and linear sweep voltammetry. The structural morphology and thickness of the film was characterized by SEM technique. The prepared electrode showed an excellent catalytic activity in the electrochemical oxidation of EN and UA, leading to remarkable enhancements in the corresponding peak currents and lowering the peak potentials. The prepared modified electrode acts as a highly sensitive sensor for simultaneous determination of EN and UA in the presence of...
