The two-dimensional problem of gravity-driven laminar flow of a thin layer of fluid down a heated wavy inclined surface is discussed. The coupled effect of bottom topography, variable surface tension and heating has been investigated both analytically and numerically. A stability analysis is conducted while nonlinear simulations are used to validate the(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is a condition associated with significant morbidity; however the management options are often unsatisfactory with a portion of patients exhibiting a refractory-relapsing disease path despite various lines of treatment including splenectomy. As a thrombopoietin receptor agonist, eltrombopag (GlaxoSmithKline,(More)
The method of weighted residuals for thin film flow down an inclined plane is extended to include the effects of bottom waviness, heating, and permeability in this study. A bottom slip condition is used to account for permeability and a constant temperature bottom boundary condition is applied. A weighted residual model (WRM) is derived and used to predict(More)
BACKGROUND To date, there are no data available concerning the impact of iron therapy on the long-term well-being and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in pregnancy. OBJECTIVE To assess the long-term effect of iron therapy on HRQoL in pregnancy. DESIGN This is a follow-up study conducted between January 2010 and January 2011 of an earlier(More)
