This review focuses on naturally derived polymers that can form hydrogels under mild conditions and that are thus capable of entrapping cells within controlled volumes, with particular attention on polysaccharides and proteins.
The dynamic effect of pipe-wall viscoelasticity in hydraulic transients. Part II—model development, calibration and verification
A state-of-the-art mathematical model has been developed to calculate hydraulic transients in pressurized polyethylene (PE) pipe systems. This hydraulic transient solver (HTS) incorporates additional…
