Tissue cell differentiation and multicellular evolution via cytoskeletal stiffening in mechanically stressed microenvironments.

Acta Mech Sin 2019 13;35(2):270-274. Epub 2018 Nov 13.

Evolution of eukaryotes from simple cells to complex multicellular organisms remains a mystery. Our postulate is that cytoskeletal stiffening is a necessary condition for evolution of complex multicellular organisms from early simple eukaryotes. Recent findings show that embryonic stem cells are as soft as primitive eukaryotes-amoebae and that differentiated tissue cells can be two orders of magnitude stiffer than embryonic stem cells.

Analytical and computational modelling for wave energy systems: the example of oscillating wave surge converters.

Acta Mech Sin 2017 7;33(4):647-662. Epub 2017 Jun 7.

Carnegie Clean Energy Limited, Northam, Australia.

The development of new wave energy converters has shed light on a number of unanswered questions in fluid mechanics, but has also identified a number of new issues of importance for their future deployment. The main concerns relevant to the practical use of wave energy converters are sustainability, survivability, and maintainability. Of course, it is also necessary to maximize the capture per unit area of the structure as well as to minimize the cost. Read More

Mechanical and Electronic Approaches to Improve the Sensitivity of Microcantilever Sensors.

Acta Mech Sin 2009 Feb;25(1):1-12

Institute for Micromanufacturing, Louisiana Tech University, Ruston, LA 71272, USA.

Advances in the field of Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) and their uses now offer unique opportunities in the design of ultrasensitive analytical tools. The analytical community continues to search for cost-effective, reliable, and even portable analytical techniques that can give reliable and fast response results for a variety of chemicals and biomolecules. Microcantilevers (MCLs) have emerged as a unique platform for label-free biosensor or bioassay. Read More
