Aerosols are investigated because of their significant impact on the environment and human health. To date, windblown dust and sea salt from sea spray through bursting bubbles have been considered the chief mechanisms of environmental aerosol dispersion. Here we investigate aerosol generation from droplets hitting wettable porous surfaces including various(More)
A novel method to fabricate superhydrophobic surfaces using electrophoretic deposition (EPD) is presented. EPD presents a readily scalable, customizable, and potentially low cost surface manufacturing process. Low surface energy materials with high surface roughness are achieved using EPD of unstable hydrophobic SiO(2) particle suspensions. The effect of(More)
This work describes a nanoparticle coating method to produce durable antiwetting polyester fabric. Electrophoretic deposition is used for fast modification of polyester fabric with silica nanoparticles embedded in polymeric networks for high durability coatings. Typically, electrophoretic deposition (EPD) is utilized on electrically conductive substrates(More)
Aerosolized microorganisms may play an important role in climate change, disease transmission, water and soil contaminants, and geographic migration of microbes. While it is known that bioaerosols are generated when bubbles break on the surface of water containing microbes, it is largely unclear how viable soil-based microbes are transferred to the(More)
We have developed an electrochemical fabrication method utilizing breakdown anodization (BDA) to yield capillary flows that can be expressed as functions of capillary height. This method uses anodization instability with high electric potentials and mildly acidic electrolytes that are maintained at low temperature. BDA produces highly porous micro- and(More)
A fabrication method is developed for superhydrophilic surfaces with high capillary pressure and fast spreading speed. The fabrication method consists of electrophoretic deposition (EPD) and breakdown anodization (BDA). Nanopores and micropores were produced on titanium plates by EPD and BDA, respectively. In EPD, TiO(2) nanoparticles were used to enhance(More)
This study investigates drop impingement on highly wetting porous films and papers. Experiments reveal previously unexplored impingement modes on porous surfaces designated as necking, spreading, and jetting. Dimensional analysis yields a nondimensional parameter, denoted the Washburn-Reynolds number, relating droplet kinetic energy and surface energy. The(More)
Biofilms have devastating impacts on many industries such as increased fuel consumption and damage to surfaces in maritime industries. Ideal biofouling management is inhibition of initial bacterial attachment. The attachment of a model marine bacterium (Halomonas pacfica g) was investigated to evaluate the potential of these new novel surfaces to resist(More)
1. Abstract The topology design optimization of " three-dimensional geometrically-nonlinear " continuum structures is still a difficult problem not only because of its problem size but also the occurrence of unstable continuum finite elements during the design optimization. To overcome this difficulty, the element connectivity parameterization (ECP)(More)
