Adult learners are a large group for higher education. Adult learning is different from children's learning in that adult learners are more self-directed, having prior experience, and are internally motivated to learn subjects that are more relevant to life and can be applied immediately. Understanding adult learners' characteristics can help institutions and instructors support adult students' learning and success. This chapter reviews the adult learning theories and methodologies and how th…

Flow cytometry is a classic laser technology. With the discovery of the cytometer, flow cytometry has become a primary tool in biodiagnostic research. This review focuses on current applications of flow cytometry to the diagnosis of disease and treatment monitoring at the single-cell level. A description of the principles of flow cytometry and a brief overview of the major applications are presented. Our criteria for selecting research papers for this review are those that show advances in bi…

Fuzzy clustering is a widely used approach for data classification by using the fuzzy set theory. The probability measure and the possibility measure are two popular measures which have been used in the fuzzy [Formula: see text]-means algorithm (FCM) and the possibilistic clustering algorithms (PCAs), respectively. However, the numerical experiments revealed that FCM and its derivatives lack the intuitive concept of degree of belongingness, and PCAs suffer from the “coincident problem” and ca…

A project was recently undertaken with the objective of designing a novel photovoltaic module, which encloses groups of solar cells that can track the sun. This will allow the module itself to be mounted simply at a fixed tilt but still reap the substantial energy collecting benefits presently associated only with rotating active and passive solar tracking panels, while avoiding their significant additional complexity, cost and weight. The main ultimate goal is to design such a module to coll…

Numerical study of turbulent heat transfer of nanofluid through a corrugated channel is presented. The finite volume method is used to solve the transport equation for the momentum, energy and turbulence quantities adopting a single phase approach. The corrugated channels are sine-shaped, V-shaped and rectangular shaped with amplitude (a/H) and wave length (λ/H) of 0.15 and 1 respectively. Three different nano-particles such as aluminum oxide (Al2O3), Copper (Cu) and titanium dioxide (TiO2) w…

The disturbances on the surface of a moving liquid sheet in a moving gaseous medium are studied to analyze the dynamics and breakup of the liquid sheet with co-flowing gas. The problem, composed of the Navier-Stokes systems associated with surface tension forces, is solved by the Volume of Fluid (VOF) technique with a Continuum Surface Force (CSF) manner artificially smoothing the discontinuity present at the interface. The investigation provides the insights into the dynamics and breakup pro…

Detailed analyses of thermal residual stress profiles due to laser micro-joining of several dissimilar material combinations, titanium (Ti) and polyimide (PI) [1], titanium coated glass (Gl) and polyimide [2], and glass and silicon (Si), are vital for the long-term applications of bio-implants and opto-electronics. In these studies, comprehensive three dimensional (3D) transient simulations for thermal and thermal stress analyses of transmission laser micro-joining of dissimilar materials hav…

In this study, key components of combined cycles designed for waste energy recovery from automobile engines have been virtually designed for being light weight, small sized without compromising strengths, and based on integration with the existing components of an automobile. Originally a simulation was performed to examine the amount of waste energy that could be recovered and the consequential increase in the overall thermal efficiency through the use of Kalina, ethanol and steam cycles usi…

A robust and accurate center-frequency (CF) estimation (RACE) algorithm for improving the performance of the local sine-wave modeling (SinMod) method, which is a good motion estimation method for tagged cardiac magnetic resonance (MR) images, is proposed in this study. The RACE algorithm can automatically, effectively and efficiently produce a very appropriate CF estimate for the SinMod method, under the circumstance that the specified tagging parameters are unknown, on account of the followi…
