In the present paper multilane models for vehicular traac are considered. A microscopic multilane model based on reaction thresholds is developed. Based on this model an Enskog like kinetic model is developed. In particular, care is taken to incorporate the correlations between the vehicles. From the kinetic model a uid dynamic model is derived. The… (More)
In this paper the work presented in 4] is continued. The present paper contains detailed numerical investigations of the models developed there. A numerical method to treat the kinetic equations obtained in 4] is presented. Space homogeneous and inhomogeneous situations are considered.
In this paper, a stochastic model  for the turbulent fiber lay-down in the industrial production of nonwoven materials is extended by including a moving conveyor belt. In the hydrodynamic limit corresponding to large noise values, the transient and stationary joint probability distributions are determined using the method of multiple scales and the… (More)
The paper at hand deals with the modeling of turbulence effects on the dynamics of a long slender elastic fiber. Independent of the choice of the drag model, a general aerodynamic force concept is derived on the basis of the velocity field for the randomly fluctuating component of the flow. Its construction as a centered differentiable Gaussian field… (More)
The local delivery of drugs to the cochlea is a promising alternative to systemic treatment of inner ear disorders. Whilst new drugs are being developed for this purpose, it is important to determine the time course and total dose required for the various target regions within the inner ear. Due to the small fluid spaces of the inner ear and the resulting… (More)
