A piezoelectric fan is a flexible cantilever beam whose vibration is actuated by means of a piezoelectric material. Such fans have been employed for the enhancement of heat transfer by increasing the fluid circulation in regions which are otherwise stagnant. The main focus of past studies has been to describe the heat transfer achieved from these devices,(More)

To achieve high quality and reliability in mechatronics products, thorough consideration of dynamic performance in structural design is essential. Typical examples include the design of optical pickups for disk related products, such as Compact Disc (CD) drives, and Magneto-optical Disc (MO) drives. Many researchers have developed design methodologies to(More)
In fulminant type 1 diabetes (FT1D), irreversible destruction of pancreatic beta-cells occurs abruptly, leading to sudden diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) in the absence of diabetes-related autoantibodies. This is the first case report of FT1D in which beta-cell was rescued with the commencement of insulin therapy during the evolution of FT1D.
