Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics Discussions This discussion paper is/has been under review for the journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics (ACP). Please refer to the corresponding final paper in ACP if available. Abstract Simultaneous measurements of gaseous sulfuric acid and particle number size distributions were performed to investigate aerosol(More)
This paper presents the development and validation of a new parallel unstructured multi-grid preconditioned implicit method for the simulation of three-dimensional (3D) unsteady compressible flows using a so-called immersed membrane method (IMM) An immersed membrane method for simulation of fluid–structure interaction in bio-fluid flows, in: 1st(More)
In this letter, the authors report a system for magnetic manipulation of ferrofluid droplets and their dynamic behavior. The magnetic field was generated by an array of planar coils, which were fabricated on a double-sided printed circuit board ͑PCB͒. The permanent magnetic moment of the ferrofluid droplet was created by the field of a pair of permanent(More)
In living donor liver transplantation, the volume of the potential graft must be measured to ensure sufficient liver function after surgery. Couinaud divided the liver into 8 functionally independent segments. However, this method is not simple to perform in 3D space directly. Thus, we propose a rapid method to segment the liver based on the hepatic vessel(More)
Liver segmentation is the fundamental step in computer-aided liver disease diagnosis and surgery planning. In this study, we developed a fully automatic liver extraction scheme based on an adaptive fast marching method (FMM). Firstly, a thresholding operation was applied to remove the ribs, spines and kidneys. Followed by a smooth filter for noise(More)
Understanding the particle number size distributions in diversified atmospheric environments is important in order to design mitigation strategies related to submicron particles and their effects on regional air quality, haze and human health. In this study, we conducted 15 different field measurement campaigns between 2007 and 2011 at 13 individual sites(More)
Endothelin-1 (ET-1) is a critical molecule that involved in heart failure. It has been proved that ET-1 stimulation results in cardiac hypertrophy both in vitro and in vivo, but the mechanisms underlying remain largely unknown. In this study, we reported that cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) might be an important mediator of hypertrophic responses to ET-1(More)
This paper theoretically and experimentally investigates a micromixer based on combined hydrodynamic focusing and time-interleaved segmentation. Both hydrodynamic focusing and time-interleaved segmentation are used in the present study to reduce mixing path, to shorten mixing time, and to enhance mixing quality. While hydrodynamic focusing reduces the(More)
