High-resolution near-wall fluorescent microparticle image velocimetry (micro-PIV) was used in mouse cremaster muscle venules in vivo to measure velocity profiles in the red cell-depleted plasma layer near the endothelial lining. micro-PIV data of the instantaneous translational speeds and radial positions of fluorescently labeled microspheres (0.47 microm)(More)
We show that many salient hemodynamic flow properties, which have been difficult or impossible to assess in microvessels in vivo, can be estimated by using microviscometry and fluorescent microparticle image velocimetry in microvessels >20 microm in diameter. Radial distributions in blood viscosity, shear stress, and shear rate are obtained and used to(More)
In order to significantly advance our current understanding of a great many important physiological and pathophysiological processes in cardiovascular research, it is becoming increasingly evident that a more sophisticated and realistic account of the underlying microhemofluidics involved in these processes will be required. In the microcirculation, vessel(More)
We describe a new boundary-integral representation for biphasic mixture theory, which allows us to efficiently solve certain elastohydrodynamic-mobility problems using boundary element methods. We apply this formulation to model the motion of a rigid particle through a microtube which has non-uniform wall shape, is filled with a viscous Newtonian fluid, and(More)
This report addresses the development of dryland oilseed crops to provide feedstock for production of biofuels in semi-arid portions of the northwestern USA. Bioenergy feedstocks derived from Brassica oilseed crops have been considered for production of hydrotreated renewable jet fuel, but crop growth and yields in the northwestern region are limited by a(More)
