J. Dsa[1], Manisha[1], M. Goswami [1], B.R Singh [1],
[1] Indian Institute of information technology Allahabad, Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, India

We have developed a piezoelectrically controlled MEMS drug delivery device for on-demand release of defined quantities of drug. A drug-loaded micro reservoir (∅6mm×550µm) is sealed by A membrane placed over the drug reservoir on which the piezoelectric material is deposited. On application of voltage across this piezoelectric material , the membrane deflects allowing the fluid to fill into the ...

[1] Department of Chemistry, Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA, USA

This poster studies catalytic micropumps and their ability to induce fluid flow on the microscale. The goal of the study is to design a long-distance, directed convective loop. An array of catalytic micropumps was constructed in the domain, comprised of two distinct catalysts in an alternating pattern with a uniform concentration of their respective reagents in the surrounding geometry. Two ...

Influence of Non-Newtonian Blood Viscosity on Wall Pressure in Right Coronary Arteries with Serial Stenoses

B. Liu [1]
[1] Monmouth University, West Long Branch, NJ, USA

Three dimensional mathematical models are developed to simulate the blood flows in patient specific right coronary arteries with two stenoses. Simulations are carried out with various flow parameters under physiological conditions. Both Newtonian and non-Newtonian blood viscosity models are applied in the simulations to examine the influence of non-Newtonian viscosity of blood on the wall ...

[2]Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai, India

Micro electrical discharge machining (MEDM), a scaled down version of EDM process, is a micro machining process used to fabricate micro holes and intricate shapes in electrically conductive materials irrespective of its hardness. In this process, an electric spark is generated in the gap between the two electrodes (tool as cathode and workpiece as anode) submerged in dielectric that leads to a ...

[1] Non-linearity and Complexity Research Group, System Analytics Research Institute, School of Engineering and Applied Science, Aston University, Birmingham, United Kingdom

The municipal wastewater treatment in a sustainable context requires a smart technology in which an optimal combination of the ecological status and energy demand can be achieved. The integration of electron conductive materials into a traditionally constructed wetland (CW) has been demonstrated as an emerging strategy for wastewater treatment [1, 2]. By exploiting the electron transfer ...

[1] Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, Bellaterra, Spain

Micro-machined ultrasound transducers have a wide range of applications. As a sensor or actuator they can be used for measuring fluid speed and direction, to mix and excite particles (sonication), for taking images (ultrasonography), for non-destructive testing and many other purposes in wide variety of fields. For this particular study, a simplified model of micro-machined piezoelectric ...

Modeling of Epithelial Sheet Deformation Under External Force Applied by a Migrating Cell

M. A. Akhmanova [1], A. Ratheesh [1], D. E. Siekhaus [1],
[1] Institute of Science and Technology Austria, Klosterneuburg, Austria

Mechanics of living cells and tissues play a central role in many phenomena, from tissue shape formation (morphogenesis) to migration of cells within tissues. One prominent example is the epithelia – a sheet of cells tightly attached to one another. It provides a physical barrier to separate an organism’s interior from the external environment and serves as a structural support for inner ...
