In this study, multi-component CFD and DSMC solvers are used to study the gas mixture flow through a separation micronozzle at different pressure ratios. The resulting velocity and mole fraction fields, which are predicted by these solvers, are compared with each other to examine the effects of flow rarefaction on the mixture flow and the species separation and to evaluate the validity of continuum flow theory provided by the CFD solver. The results indicate good agreement of the velocity and mole fraction fields in the regions in which the pressure is sufficiently high. A decrease in pressure value, which is the result of increasing the pressure ratio at a constant inlet pressure, and a...

Conventional models of cardiovascular system (CV) frequently lack required detail. Once utilized to study the heart function, these models focus primarily on the overall relationship between pressure, flow and volume. This study proposes a localized and regional model of the CV system. It utilizes non-invasive blood flow and pressure seed data and temporal cardiac muscle regional activation to predict the operation of the heart. Proposed localized analysis considers specific regions of the heart, namely base, mid and apex sections of the left ventricle. This modular system is based on a hydraulic electric analogy model, estimating desired parameters, namely resistance (R), compliance (C),...

Accurate determination of natural gas viscosity is important for successful design of production, transportation, and gas storage systems. However, most of available models/correlations suffer from complexity, robustness, and inadequate accuracy especially when wide range of pressure and temperature is applied. Present study illustrates development of two novel models for predicting natural gas viscosity for pure natural gas (CH4) as well as natural gas containing impurities. For this purpose, 6484 data points have been gathered and analyzed from the open literature covering wide range of pressure, temperature, and specific gravity levels, temperature ranges from -262.39 to 620.33 °F (109.6...

Response surface methodology is used to establish robust and user-friendly predictive equations that relate responses of a complex detailed trunk finite element biomechanical model to its input variables during sagittal symmetric static lifting activities. Four input variables (thorax flexion angle, lumbar/pelvis ratio, load magnitude, and load position) and four model responses (L4-L5 and L5-S1 disc compression and anterior-posterior shear forces) are considered. Full factorial design of experiments accounting for all combinations of input levels is employed. Quadratic predictive equations for the spinal loads at the L4-S1 disc mid-heights are obtained by regression analysis with adequate...
