  • Renal Tissue Preservation: Cooling the human kidney for optimal transport conditions 

    Calve, Sarah; Gartenberg, Shaun; Taxier, Karen; Utz, Edward (1999-01-10)
    End Stage Renal Disease affects over 80,000 Americans each year. While there is no known cure, kidney transplants are the most effective way to combat the disease while bettering the quality of life for the patient. In ...
  • The ABC's: Atherosclerosis, Blood Flow, and the Carotid Artery 

    Beers, Craig; Jennifer, Burlingame; Johnson, Leigh Ann; Stepp, Eliza (1999-01-10)
    The effects of blood flow were analyzed in the carotid artery, using computer aided engineering software (FIDAP and GAMBIT). The study was conducted because patients that have atherosclerosis often have plaque build up ...
  • Water Flow and Heat Transfer Pattern in a HPS lamp 

    Gupta, Meghna; Langford, Darcey; Leary, Dan; Linhart, David; Piech, Tomasz (1999-01-10)
    The purpose of this report is to model a High Pressure Sodium (HPS) light bulb. Velocity and heat transfer profiles were computed to determine the optimal configuration of heat evacuation using a liquid coolant. In this ...
  • Heating Effects of Dental Drilling 

    Bunimovich, Yuri; Mintseris, Julian; Kim, Becky; Mohan, Vivek (1999-01-10)
    Drilling causes pain in the tooth for various reasons. This paper addresses the heating of the pulpal region due to friction from drilling. The heating may depend on such parameters as the speed of the drill, water supply, ...
  • Angiography 

    Fryman, Rodney Sean; Jarrad, Daniela Elizabeth; Lau, Christina Mei Lan; Raile, Benjamin William (1999-01-10)
    This paper explores the use of Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) to model angiography dye flow in the detection of cerebral aneurysms. To obtain a discernable image, the concentration of the dye, Conray-60 ? , needed to be ...
  • Numerical Simulation of Natural Convection Heating in Canned Foods Containing Solid Particles 

    Acquarone, V; Bu-Contreras, R; Rumondor, A; Tacy, N (1999-01-10)
    In this work we investigated the influence of solid particles on the heating of canned foods. A numerical model for natural convection heating of liquids developed by Datta and Teixeira in 1987 was used for predicting the ...
  • Computer Aided Simulation of Varying Viscosities in Orange Juice Pasteurization 

    Akinwale, Pamela; Bhebe, Prince; Ogura, Nori (1999-01-10)
    This project presents a FIDAP simulation for determining the effect of viscosity on the process time required to pasteurize orange juice of varying Brix* . Destruction of C. Botulinum and Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) were ...
