The results of an analysis of turbulent pipe flow based on a Karhunen-Lò eve decomposition are presented. The turbulent flow is generated by a direct numerical simulation of the Navier-Stokes equations using a spectral element algorithm at a Reynolds number Reτ = 150. This simulation yields a set of basis functions that captures 90% of the energy after 2,(More)
We study how double-stranded DNA translocates through graphene nanogaps. Nanogaps are fabricated with a novel capillary-force induced graphene nanogap formation technique. DNA translocation signatures for nanogaps are qualitatively different from those obtained with circular nanopores, owing to the distinct shape of the gaps discussed here. Translocation(More)
The use of proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) to explore the complex fluid flows that are common in engineering applications is increasing and has yielded new physical insights. However, for most engineering systems the dimension of the dynamics is expected to be very large yet the flow field data is available only for a finite time. In this context, it(More)
This paper presents an event-driven, discrete-in-time feedback strategy for tracking and stabilizing naturally occurring periodic oscillations in the probe-tip dynamics of atomic force microscope (AFM) cantilevers in tapping-mode operation. Specifically, robust dynamic tracking and stabilization is achieved by the imposition of discrete changes in the(More)
Digital Particle Image Velocimetry (DPIV) is a planar measurement technique to measure the velocity within a fluid by correlating the motion of flow tracers over a sequence of images recorded with a camera-laser system. Sophisticated digital processing algorithms are required to provide a high enough accuracy for quantitative DPIV results. This study(More)
