    We have investigated possible water adsorption forms on S[sub A], D[sub A] and D[sub B] type stepped Si(100) surfaces. Calculations are performed using the empirical tight binding method. Two types of adsorption models of water on stepped Si(100) surfaces have been considered: the dissociative...

    The energy principle is used to show that elongated annular field-reversed configurations with a conductor linking the torus are unstable to an internal tilt mode. The critical elongation increases with the aspect ratio and the growth rate decreases with plasma length for very elongated plasmas.

    The initial motion of a horizontal vortex ring with upwelling flow in its center is studied analytically by a small-time expansion. The toroidal vortex ring is put impulsively into an inviscid fluid near a free surface. The vortex coordinates and surface elevation are calculated up to third...

    Active control was applied to oscillatory thermocapillary flow in an open cylindrical container filled with Silicone oil. Thermocapillary convection was driven by imposing a radial temperature gradient on a flat free surface. This is an extension of the previous work by Shiomi et al. who applied...
