Focuses on an equation for a moderately dense gas transport coefficient that is specialized to the estimation of the coefficients of viscosity and thermal conductivity. First order in density correction to the transport coefficient; Repulsive potentials; Resulting expressions' similarity to those obtained by solving the generalized Boltzmann equation.

    The linear stability of plane three-layer vertical Poiseuille flow is considered. The layers are composed of two immiscible fluids, one next to the walls and one centrally located. The fluids have different viscosities and densities and surface tension effects are included. Intuitively, an...

    We have examined both experimentally and theoretically a piezoelectric unimorph cantilever as a liquid viscosity-and-density sensor. The fabricated piezoelectric unimorph consisted of a PbO·ZrO[sub 2]·TiO[sub 2] (PZT) layer on a thin stainless-steel plate. In addition to a driving...

    The power law range for the velocity gradient probability density function in forced Burgers turbulence has been an issue of intense discussion recently. It is shown in E and Vanden Eijnden, Phys. Rev. Lett. 83, 2572 (1999) that the negative exponent in the assumed power law range has to be...

    We have investigated microscopic dynamics in the bulk glass-forming Cu46Zr42Al7Y5 melts using quasielastic neutron scattering (QENS). Self-correlation functions show a fast β and a slow α-relaxation process. α relaxation exhibits stretching and is independent of momentum transfer and...

    The aim of this paper is to demonstrate that vibrating microcantilevers can be used to quantify fluid properties such as density and viscosity. Contrary to classical rheological measurements using microcantilevers, the development of the proposed microrheometer is based on the measurement of...
