Variations of the Herschel–Bulkley exponent reflecting contributions of the viscous continuous phase to the shear rate-dependent stress of soft glassy materials

Caggioni, Marco ; Trappe, Veronique ; Spicer, Patrick T.

In: Journal of Rheology, 2020, vol. 64, no. 2, p. 413–422

We explore the flow behavior of concentrated emulsions for which the viscosity of the continuous phase can be significantly varied by changing the temperature. The exponents obtained by fitting the shear rate-dependent stress with the popular Herschel–Bulkley (HB) model display a systematic dependence on the viscosity of the continuous phase, revealing that viscous dissipation via the...

Computational analysis of deep visual data for quantifying facial expression production

Leo, Marco ; Carcagnì, Pierluigi ; Distante, Cosimo ; Mazzeo, Pier Luigi ; Spagnolo, Paolo ; Levante, Annalisa ; Petrocchi, Serena ; Lecciso, Flavia

In: Applied sciences, 2019, vol. 9, no. 21, p. 4542

The computational analysis of facial expressions is an emerging research topic that could overcome the limitations of human perception and get quick and objective outcomes in the assessment of neurodevelopmental disorders (e.g., Autism Spectrum Disorders, ASD). Unfortunately, there have been only a few attempts to quantify facial expression production and most of the scientific literature ...

Enhancing multi-scale cardiac simulations by coupling electrophysiology and mechanics : a flexible high performance approach to cardiac electromechanics

Pozzi, Sonia ; Krause, Rolf (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2019 ; 2019INFO005.

This work focuses on the development of computational methods for the simulation of the propagation of the electrical potential in the heart and of the resulting mechanical contraction. The interaction of these two physical phenomena is described by an electromechanical model which consists of the monodomain system, which describes the propagation of the action potential in the cardiac tissue,...
