Data for: Influence of substrate temperature on Marangoni convection instabilities in a sessile droplet evaporating at constant contact line mode
Contributors: Wan-Yuan Shi, Tian-Shi Wang
... Two videos are corrsponding to the Marangoni instabilities in a sessile evaporating droplet for Fig.3 and Fig.11 in the paper. The video for Fig.3 is mainly aimed at the state of steady Bénard-Marangoni convection and irregular oscillatory Bénard-Marangoni convection. The video for Fig.11 is mainly aimed at the phenomenon of hydrothermal waves and coexistence of the hydrothermal waves and the irregular oscillatory Bénard-Marangoni convection.

... The dataset contains over 1000 recordings of human-human handovers collected from 18 volunteers. The recordings refer to 76 test configurations, which consider volunteer's starting position and role, object to pass and experimenter's motion strategy. Data collected come from 6-axis IMU one for each volunteer, Microsoft Kinect for skeleton tracking and a motion capture system. Each recording is also annotated with a video and a questionnaire about the perceived characteristics of the handover.

... Attention is focused on the response of monumental buildings to internal explosions. The study covers the emblematic case of the Pantheon in Rome, yet it sheds light on more generic ones. Propagation of incident and reflected blast waves and their impact on the structure are considered in terms of a coupled solid-fluid simulation which relies on a multi-material formulation and a coupled Eulerian-Lagrangian approach. The pre-existent cracks spreading the dome and the material non-linearities of low-tensile strength concrete aggregates are considered. The geometry of the structure is accounted by a detailed three-dimensional model. The numerical results draw a picture where the use of empirical laws to model blast actions in structures with complex geometry may be inadequate. In fact, the coupled solid-fluid simulations show strong localizations of shock waves due to the dome-vaulted geometry which concentrates the energy released by the explosion as a concave mirror. The video shows the evolution in time of the pressure field originated by the explosion. The structural response is highly influenced by the high-pressure volume which stems from wave localization phenomena in the center of the dome as well as by the presence of the pre-existent cracks.
Data for: Dynamic scenario simulation of dropwise condensation on a structured superhydrophobic surface with droplet jumping
Contributors: Hao Wang, Kaixin Meng
... The simulation has well reproduced the condensing process on a vertical surface. The droplets are growing and coalescing with neighbors. The coalescence and jumping are shown. Those jumping ones leave blank areas on the surface where new droplets then nucleate and grow up and then coalesce again. Some coalescence pairs don’t meet the criteria and cannot jump. Quite a few droplets are always more than 1.5 times larger than their small neighbors, therefore they keep “eating” their neighbors and grow up. The gravity removal of big droplets, as well as its sweeping to the downstream, is reproduced well as shown in Video 2.

This repository contains the supplement files for the HardwareX Journal titled: Multi-axis Stress Sensor Characterization and Testing Platform Authors: Talha Agcayazi*, Marc Foster, Hannah Kausche, Max Gordon, Alper Bozkurt Affiliations: Electric and Computer Engineering, North Carolina State University Contact email: [firstname.lastname@example.org] Abstract: Multi-Axis mechanical stress sensors have become an important tool in numerous fields. To characterize the quality and resolution of a new stress sensor, researchers use test platforms to apply controlled amounts of shear and normal stresses. Since commercially available multi-axis test platforms are expensive, in many cases researchers end up needing to build their own sensor characterization platforms. In this study, we describe a cost-effective multi-axis stress sensor characterization platform to reduce development time, enable accurate benchmarking and provide an open source standard for stress sensor characterization for other researchers. In our design, we combined a 3-axis translational stage and a 3-axis force and torque (F/T) sensor through custom hardware and software. Our platform is cost effective and can reach the limits of the F/T sensor (Fxy = ±65N and Fz = ±200N) without losing any accuracy to structural bending. We provide detailed construction and operation instructions as well as results of extensive static and cyclic load experiments. To further validate our system, we show characterization results from a custom stress sensor as a case study. The modular nature of our platform also enables other researchers to customize this characterization platform for their unique experimental requirements.

... Study aim: to test the validity, sensitivity and reliability of the CALM scale for evaluation of responses to large body balance perturbations in the mediolateral direction. Design: analysis was conducted on data from 46 healthy university students of both genders. Task The task aim was to recover the body balance after unpredictable perturbations, trying to maintain the initial Romberg posture. Perturbations were applied through varying displacements of the support base on a custom made moveable platform. Support base displacements were made in the mediolateral direction, in three modalities: rotation, translation and the combined translation-rotation. Displacements were made in both directions in three speeds (20, 30 and 40º (cm)/s). Combination of modality, direction and perturbation velocity factors resulted in 18 distinct perturbations, making each perturbation unique in the protocol. The sequence of perturbations was pseudorandomized among all possibilities of variation of postural perturbation. Statistical analysis Reliability: Intra and inter-rater analyzes were performed by means of coincidence scores and intra-class correlation coefficient (ICC). Validity: CALM scale scores and corresponding kinematic data were correlated by the Pearson product moment test. Sensitivity was analyzed through three-way 2 (group: trained x untrained) x 3 (perturbation: rotation x translation x combination) x 3 (velocity: low x moderate x high), ANOVAs with repeated measures on the last two factors. Post hoc comparisons were made through the Newman-Keuls test (ηp2). Highlights Scale for evaluation of compensatory arm and leg movements to balance perturbation Large magnitude unpredictable balance perturbations in the mediolateral direction Patterns of compensatory movements are rated as a function of their stability High reliability, validity, and sensitivity to perturbation magnitude and training Instrument potentially able to predict probability of falls in at-risk individuals
