Previous laboratory measurements on drag of tandem rigid bodies moving in viscous incompressible fluids found that a following body experienced less drag than a leading one. Very recently a laboratory experiment (Ristroph & Zhang, Phys. Rev. Lett., vol. 101, 2008) with deformable bodies (rubble threads) revealed just the opposite – the leading body had less(More)
Motivated by a laboratory experiment reported in Alben, Shelley & Zhang (Nature, vol. 420, 2002, p. 479), we performed simulations of an elastic fibre anchored at its centre point and immersed in a flowing viscous incompressible fluid by the immersed boundary (IB) method. We focus on the influence of some dimensionless parameters on vortex shedding from the(More)
The dipole-forbidden transition of D1delta <-- X1sigma+ of CO has been observed by a fast electron-energy-loss spectrometer at a large scattering angle of 7 degrees and with an energy resolution of 60 meV. The energy levels and the relative intensity distribution of D1delta, v'=9-25 have been determined, most of the results are reported for the first time.
Absolute optical oscillator strength density spectra for valence-shell excitations of HCl and HBr, as well as for Br-3d inner-shell excitations of HBr, have been determined by high-resolution electron-energy-loss-spectroscopy method in the dipole limit. Absolute optical oscillator strengths for the discrete transitions of HCl and HBr are reported and(More)
K-vacancy Auger states of N(q+) (q = 2-5) ions are studied by using the complex multireference single- and double-excitation configuration interaction (CMRD-CI) method. The calculated resonance parameters are in good agreement with the available experimental and theoretical data. It shows that the resonance positions and widths converge quickly with the(More)
The momentum transfer dependence of fundamental double excitation processes of helium is studied by absolute measurements using an angular resolved fast-electron energy loss spectrometer with high energy resolution. It elucidates the dynamical correlations, in terms of internal correlation quantum numbers, K, T, and A. The Fano profile parameters q, f(a),(More)
dynamics and the correlation length in nanoconfined PMMA" (2016). a b s t r a c t We studied the segmental dynamics of poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) in multi-layered films with polycarbonate (PC) having layer thicknesses as small as 4 nm. Such a design provides macroscopic dimensions enabling macroscopic measurements, while maintaining nm-scale(More)
The dipole (γ, γ) method, which is the inelastic x-ray scattering operated at a negligibly small momentum transfer, is proposed and realized to determine the absolute optical oscillator strengths of the vanlence-shell excitations of atoms and molecules. Compared with the conventionally used photoabsorption method, this new method is free from the line(More)
The Compton profiles of methane and ethane molecules have been determined at an incident photon energy of 20 keV based on the third generation synchrotron radiation, and the statistical accuracy of 0.2% is achieved near pz = 0. The density functional theory with aug-cc-pVTZ basis set was used to calculate the Compton profiles of methane and ethane. The(More)
The generalized oscillator strengths, differential cross sections, as well as the integral cross sections for electron impact excitation of the B (1)Delta, C (1)Pi, and D (1)Sigma(+) states of N(2)O have been determined at an incident electron energy of 2500 eV. A generalized oscillator strength analysis reveals that the B (1)Delta<--X (1)Sigma(+)(More)
