In the remnant kidneys of rats subjected to extensive renal ablation, these elevated glomerular capillary pressures
and flows are associated with progressive proteinuria and eventual glomerular sclerosis (Anderson et al.
The analytical equation for the cocurrent imbibition can be derived from Darcy's equation and capillary pressure
, and this is expressed as:
11), (21-25) One of the simplest was derived by Brown, (11) who balanced the force to compress two Hertzian spheres with the estimated lowest capillary pressure
that can be supported by a stable meniscus between three latex particles (12.
An analytical function derived by Laun  was manipulated to calculate the capillary pressure
The water in the agar (agar is 98 percent water) creates capillary pressure
that is applied exclusively on the side of the wood to which the contaminant is applied (in the post-soaked experiments, water entered the sample on either side, balancing external pressure).
the end pressure drop) and Bagley-corrected capillary pressure
by interpolating between two set of relative permeabilities and capillary pressure
final match for core B has been obtained.
when air invades to transform what we know as the wet stage to the moist stage, capillary forces--presumably capillary pressure
forces of surface tension--deform latex particles and are more important than van der Waals force.
Super Max is a surfactant and microemulsion system that reduces surface tension, reduces interfacial tension, lowers capillary pressure
, changes contact angle, and controls leakoff with microcells.
is not insignificant, given the narrow diameter of epidural catheters and the relatively low epidural venous pressures of approximately 8 mmHg (4,5).
Automatic turning beds help prevent bed sores by selectively reducing capillary pressure
through the gradual and continual turning of patients.
In considering why rewet is improved with increasing pad density, it is useful to consider the concept of capillary pressure
PowerLog is Fugro-Jason's flagship petrophysical software, featuring multi-well analysis, multi-interpreter collaboration, capillary pressure
analysis, facies identification, multi-mineral analysis and stochastic mineral modeling.
J receptors are influenced by capillary pressure
and results in rapid, shallow breathing patterns, and possibly contribute to bradycardia and bronchoconstriction.
The networks extracted from the images are used in models to predict multiphase flow properties such as relative permeability, capillary pressure
and spontaneous imbibition process.
