Exploring the 4 Basic Modes of Electrophoresis

August 6, 2020

Zone electrophoresis, moving-boundary electrophoresis, isotachophoresis, and isoelectric focusing. In most cases, the physics of new electrophoretic methods can be related back to these 4 modes.

What Is the Best Way to Analyze Fuel Tank Vibration?

August 4, 2020

In a traditional approach for modeling a fuel tank, the fluid mass is dispersed through the tank’s wetted surface. A multiphysics method specifically models the acoustic pressure in the fluid.
