The pathogenesis of malaria is largely due to stiffening of the infected red blood cells (RBCs). Contemporary understanding ascribes the loss of RBC deformability to a 10-fold increase in membrane stiffness caused by extra cross-linking in the spectrin network. Local measurements by micropipette aspiration, however, have reported only an increase of ∼3-fold(More)
In Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) methods for fluid flow, in-compressibility may be imposed by a projection method with an artificial homogeneous Neumann boundary condition for the pressure Poisson equation. This is often inconsistent with physical conditions at solid walls and inflow and outflow boundaries. For this reason open-boundary flows have(More)
It is still difficult for traditional methods to simulate fluid-structure interaction (FSI) problems which are increasingly used to model cardiovascular system, and human organism. This contribution develops a new numerical method to analyze FSI, based on smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH). The Lagrangian and meshless characteristics of SPH presents(More)
OBJECTIVES Almond (Prunus amygdalus) hull and shell are agricultural by-products that are a source of phenolic compounds.The processing of almond produce shell and hull, accounts for more than 50% by dry weight of the almond fruits. Recently, more studies have focused on the influence of storage conditions and postharvest handling on the nutritional quality(More)
SUMMARY Carrier beat phase measurements of GPS are routinely used for precise positioning applications. However, before any position can be computed, the carrier ambiguity which is an inherent part of these types of observations should be correctly resolved. Otherwise, the computed positions are biased and their corresponding accuracies are drastically(More)
