    A method for the on-line testing of small volumes of biological fluids is presented. The method is based on the ability of some liquids to form, when stretched, long thinning filaments, liquid bridges. Measuring the filament thinning rate makes it possible to determine the rheological parameters...

    Cracking of a fluid-filled subsurface crack is studied by means of the distributed dislocation technique within the framework of two-dimensional linear elastic fracture mechanics. The Griffith crack was initially opened by the application of hydrostatic pressure of an incompressible fluid within...

    The pattern of lung injury induced by the inhalation of ozone is believed to depend on the dose delivered to different tissues in the respiratory tract. To test this hypothesis, we performed numerical simulations of ozone transport and uptake in anatomically-correct geometries of the conductive...

    Breast carcinogenesis is a multistep and multipath disease process which occurs in the epithelium lining of the ductal system in the vast majority of cases. Several studies have shown that the relative risk of breast cancer is increased in every step of this progression and many tumour...
