Flow Simulation of a Microfluidic Analog of the Four-Roll Mill

March 1, 2004
Author(s)
Frederick R. Phelan Jr., Steven Hudson
The fluid dynamics of channel geometries for liquid state materials characterization in microfluidic devices are investigated using finite element flow simulation and flow classification criteria. A pressure driven microchannel device is sought that has an

Microfluidic Analogue of the 4-Roll Mill

January 1, 2004
Author(s)
Steven D. Hudson, Frederick R. Phelan Jr., Matthew D. Handler, J Cabral, Kalman D. Migler, Eric J. Amis
Microfluidic technology promises to revolutionize analytical (bio)chemistry, because molecular separations are faster, less expensive and more efficient than in traditional large scale equipment. Materials and complex-fluid sciences can likewise benefit

Simulation of Droplet Breakup Using a Lattice Boltzmann Method

May 1, 2003
Author(s)
Frederick R. Phelan Jr., Nicos Martys
Droplet breakup in homogeneous shear flow at super critical Capillary numbers and a viscosity ratio of unity is studied using a lattice Boltzmann method. We find that the total number of child drops that form from an isolated super critical drop scales

The Prediction of Permeability for an Epoxy/E-Glass Composite Using Optical Coherence Tomographic Images

December 1, 2001
Author(s)
Joy Dunkers, Frederick R. Phelan Jr., C G. Zimba, Kathleen M. Flynn, D P. Sanders, R C. Peterson, Richard~undefined~undefined~undefined~undefined~undefined Parnas
Knowledge of the permeability tensor in liquid composite molding is important for process optimization. Unfortunately, experimental determination of permeability is difficult and time consuming. A rapid, non-destructive technique called optical coherence

Permeability Prediction From Non-Destructive Imaging of Composite Microstructure

May 1, 2001
Author(s)
Joy Dunkers, Frederick R. Phelan Jr., Kathleen M. Flynn, D P. Sanders, Richard~undefined~undefined~undefined~undefined~undefined Parnas
In this work, binary images of the microstructure of a unidirectional E-glass/epoxy composite were generated from the low contrast OCT data through image de-noising, contrast enhancement and feature recognition. The resulting data were input to a lattice

Textile Composites: Modeling Strategies

January 1, 2001
Author(s)
S V. Lomov, G Huysmans, Y Luo, Richard~undefined~undefined~undefined~undefined~undefined Parnas, A Prodromou, I Verpoest, Frederick R. Phelan Jr.
Textile materials are characterised by the distinct hierarchy of structure, which should be represented by a model of textile geometry and mechanical behaviour. In spite of a profound investigation of textile materials and a number of theoretical models

Textile Composites: Modelling Strategies

January 1, 2001

S V. Lomov, G Huysmans, Y Luo, Richard~undefined~undefined~undefined~undefined~undefined Parnas, A Prodromou, I Verpoest, Frederick R. Phelan Jr.

The Application of Optical Coherence Tomography to Problems in Polymer Matrix Composites

January 1, 2001
Author(s)
Joy Dunkers, Frederick R. Phelan Jr., D P. Sanders, M J. Everett, William H. Green, Donald L. Hunston, Richard~undefined~undefined~undefined~undefined~undefined Parnas
The Composites Group at the National Institute of Standards and Technology has found optical coherence tomography (OCT) to be a powerful tool for non-destructive characterization of polymer matrix composites. Composites often exhibit superior properties to

Numerical Prediction of Permeability Using a Lattice Boltzmann Method and Optical Coherence Tomography

September 23, 1999
Author(s)
Frederick R. Phelan Jr., Joy Dunkers, C G. Zimba, Kathleen M. Flynn, Richard~undefined~undefined~undefined~undefined~undefined Parnas, R C. Peterson, X Li, J G. Fujimoto
A rapid, non-destructive technique called optical coherence tomography (OCT) is used to image the microstructure of an epoxy/e-glass composite. The raw OCT data is processed and converted to a binary image, and then input into a lattice Boltzmann

Colliding Self-Assembly Waves in Organosilane Monolayers

Author(s)
K Efimenko, Ali Ozcam, Jan Genzer, Daniel A. Fischer, Frederick R. Phelan Jr., Jack F. Douglas
Colliding autocatalytic wave-fronts of organosilane (OS) layer self-assembly are generated through the controlled positioning of sources of the volatile OS material at the edges of a silica wafer and through adjustment of the container dimensions in which
