The behavioural and biochemical effects of the non-competitive N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonists, dizocilpine and memantine, and the competitive NMDA receptor antagonist, CGP 39551, were investigated in rats. Systemic injections of dizocilpine (0.33 mg/kg) increased locomotion and rearing in an open field, whereas memantine (20 mg/kg)(More)
Pinch-off and scaling during drop formation are studied using high-accuracy computation and ultrafast, high-resolution imaging. The interface of a water drop (viscosity mu is approximately 1 cP) is shown to overturn prior to breakup for the first time in experiments, well before the dynamics transitions from the potential flow (PF) to the inertial-viscous(More)
Multiphysics simulation software is plagued by complexity stemming from nonlinearly coupled systems of Partial Differential Equations (PDEs). Such software typically supports many models, which may require different transport equations, constitutive laws, and equations of state. Strong coupling and a multiplicity of models leads to complex algorithms (i.e.,(More)
The relative magnitudes of the chemical shift differences (Deltadeltas) in the two diastereomers of menthyl esters of known chiral derivatizing agents (CDAs) were compared to those of the alpha-methoxy-alpha-trifluoromethyl-1-naphthylacetyl (MTN((1))A) analogues I. Discrimination of the terminal diastereotopic methyl resonances in esters of the homologous,(More)
This report documents the results for an FY06 ASC Algorithms Level 2 milestone combining error estimation and adaptivity, uncertainty quantification, and probabilistic design capabilities applied to the analysis and design of bistable MEMS. Through the use of error estimation and adaptive mesh refinement, solution verification can be performed in an(More)
