Fluidity and phase transitions of water in hydrophobic and hydrophilic nanotubes

In this paper, we put water flow under scrutiny to report radial distributions of water viscosity within hydrophobic and hydrophilic nanotubes as functions of the water-nanotube interactions, surface wettability, and nanotube size using a proposed hybrid continuum-molecular mechanics. Based on the computed viscosity data, phase diagram of the phase transitions of confined water in nanotubes is developed.

Deformation rates and localization of an active fault system

The Corinth Rift in Greece is one of the most active extensional regions in the Mediterranean area (Fig. 1). The Corinth Rift Laboratory project (CRL, is based on the cooperation of various european institutions that merge their efforts to study fault mechanics and related hazards in this natural laboratory where numerous continuous observations are made. The present rift is asymmetric and deformation is very localized.

I would like to know the factors that effect the thin film fluid material spreading under Ac votage? is there any equation which relates to viscosity, dielectric constant, bonding etc

A pool filled with non-newtonian fluid

They filled a pool with a mix of cornstarch and water made on a concrete mixer truck. It becomes a non-newtonian fluid. When stress is applied to the liquid it exhibits properties of a solid. Video was recorded at Barcelona, Spain.
