    Hi Meedo433q, I had a look at your drawing and from it I gathered that the substance you are trying to control is fairly thick. This means you wont be able to use an ordinary valve, check the diagram below out. As you can see in the top valve the path through the valve isn't straight a...

  • Re: Flow and Pressures Through Parallel Connected Pipes

    I should've been clearer in the OP, say you apply a flow which results in 500kPA at the PRV, at the instant of the pressure at this point reaching >500kPa, the PRV opens since the spring is tuned to open at 500kPa. At this point, the PRV vents to atmosphere, if it does open 100% at 501kPa (ignore...

  • Study Examines Survival Following Repair of Failed Bioprosthetic Aortic Valves

    In an analysis of about 460 patients with failed bioprosthetic aortic valves who underwent transcatheter valve-in-valve implantation, overall survival at one year was 83 percent, with survival associated with surgical valve size and mechanism of failure, according to a study. Surgical aortic valve replacements increasingly use bioprosthesis implants rather than mechanical valves. Owing to a considerable shift toward bioprosthesis implantation, it is expected that there will be an increase in the number of patients with degeneration of these types of valves.

  • Morphable surfaces could cut air resistance

    There is a story about how the modern golf ball, with its dimpled surface, came to be: In the mid-1800s, it is said, new golf balls were smooth, but became dimpled over time as impacts left permanent dents. Smooth new balls were typically used for tournament play, but in one match, a player ran short, had to use an old, dented one, and realized that he could drive this dimpled ball much further than a smooth one. Whether that story is true or not, testing over the years has proved that a golf ball's irregular surface really does dramatically increase the distance it travels, because it can cut the drag caused by air resistance in half. Now researchers at MIT are aiming to harness that same effect to reduce drag on a variety of surfaces - including domes that sometimes crumple in high winds, or perhaps even vehicles. Detailed studies of aerodynamics have shown that while a ball with a dimpled surface has half the drag of a smooth one at lower speeds, at higher speeds that advantage reverses. So the ideal would be a surface whose smoothness can be altered, literally, on the fly - and that's what the MIT team has developed. The new work is described in a paper in the journal Advanced Materials by MIT's Pedro Reis and former MIT postdocs Denis Terwagne (now at the Universit? Libre de Bruxelles in Belgium) and Miha Brojan (now at the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia). Shrinking leads to wrinkling The ability to change the surface in real time comes from the use of a multilayer material with a stiff skin and a soft interior - the same basic configuration that causes smooth plums to dry into wrinkly prunes. To mimic that process, Reis and his team made a hollow ball of soft material with a stiff skin - with both layers made of rubberlike materials - then extracted air from the hollow interior to make the ball shrink and its surface wrinkle. "Numerous studies of wrinkling have been done on flat surfaces," says Reis, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering and civil and environmental engineering. "Less is known about what happens when you curve the surface. How does that affect the whole wrinkling process?" The answer, it turns out, is that at a certain degree of shrinkage, the surface can produce a dimpled pattern that's very similar to that of a golf ball - and with the same aerodynamic properties. The aerodynamic properties of dimpled balls can be a bit counterintuitive: One might expect that a ball with a smooth surface would sail through the air more easily than one with an irregular surface. The reason for the opposite result has to do with the nature of a small layer of the air next to the surface of the ball. The irregular surface, it turns out, holds the airflow close to the ball's surface longer, delaying the separation of this boundary layer. This reduces the size of the wake - the zone of turbulence behind the ball - which is the primary cause of drag for blunt objects. When the researchers saw the wrinkled outcomes of their initial tests with their multilayer spheres, "We realized that these samples look just like golf balls," Reis says. "We systematically tested them in a wind tunnel, and we saw a reduction in drag very similar to that of golf balls." Now you see it, now you don't Because the surface texture can be controlled by adjusting the balls' interior pressure, the degree of drag reduction can be controlled at will. "We can generate that surface topography, or erase it," Reis says. "That reversibility is why this is pretty interesting; you can switch the drag-reducing effect on and off, and tune it." As a result of that variability, the team refers to these as "smart morphable surfaces" - or "smorphs," for short. The pun is intentional, Reis says: The paper's lead author - Terwagne, a Belgian comics fan - pointed out that one characteristic of Smurfs cartoon characters is that no matter how old they get, they never develop wrinkles. Terwagne says that making the morphable surfaces for lab testing required a great deal of trial-and-error - work that ultimately yielded a simple and efficient fabrication process. "This beautiful simplicity to achieve a complex functionality is often used by nature," he says, "and really inspired me to investigate further." Many researchers have studied various kinds of wrinkled surfaces, with possible applications in areas such as adhesion, or even unusual optical properties. "But we are the first to use wrinkling for aerodynamic properties," Reis says. The drag reduction of a textured surface has already expanded beyond golf balls: The soccer ball being used at this year's World Cup, for example, uses a similar effect; so do some track suits worn by competitive runners. For many purposes, such as in golf and soccer, constant dimpling is adequate, Reis says. But in other uses, the ability to alter a surface could prove useful: For example, many radar antennas are housed in spherical domes, which can collapse catastrophically in very high winds. A dome that could alter its surface to reduce drag when strong winds are expected might avert such failures, Reis suggests. Another application could be the exterior of automobiles, where the ability to adjust the texture of panels to minimize drag at different speeds could increase fuel efficiency, he says. John Rogers, a professor of materials research and engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign who was not involved in this work, says, "It represents a delightful example of how controlled processes of mechanical buckling can be used to create three-dimensional structures with interesting aerodynamic properties. The type of dynamic tuning of sophisticated surface morphologies made possible by this approach would be difficult or impossible to achieve in any other way." The research was supported by the National Science Foundation, MIT's Charles E. Reed Faculty Initiatives Fund, the Wallonie-Bruxelles International, the Belgian American Education Foundation, and the Fulbright Foundation.
