  1. 1. Global stability analysis of complex fluids

    Author : Iman Lashgari; Luca Brandt; Francois Gallaire; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; non-Newtonian flow; Carreau model; Oldroyd-B model; FENE-P model; modal analysis; nonmodal analysis; sensitivity analysis;

    Abstract : The main focus of this work is on the non-Newtonian effects on the inertial instabilities in shear flows. Both inelastic (Carreau) and elastic models (Oldroyd-B and FENE-P) have been employed to examine the main features of the non-Newtonian fluids; shear-thinning, shear-thickening and elasticity.

  2. 2. The application of microfluidic devices and multifunctional fibers in cancer diagnostics

    Author : Tharagan Kumar; Aman Russom; Fredrik Laurell; Gustaf Mårtensson; Johan Kreuger; KTH; []
    Keywords : Circulating tumor cells; microfluidics; point of care; inertial microfluidics; elasto inertial microfluidics; nano-cellulose; layer-by-layer; optical fiber; microflow cytometer.; Bioteknologi; Biotechnology;

    Abstract : Efficient separation and detection of rare cells in a mixed population is important in many biomedical applications. For instance, isolating and detecting circulating tumor cells (CTCs) from whole blood samples could allow for early cancer diagnosis and prognosis during treatment. READ MORE
