'lbere is way dialogue at the present time touching on "Bioengineering" (or "Biomedical Engineering"). it's not precisely transparent what those names characterize, quite in chemical engineering. a few have urged retreading the outdated battle horse "Biochemical Engineering" (or used to be it "Biomedical Chemical Engineering). on the way to reveal the on-going actions of chemical engineers within the existence technological know-how quarter, we permitted the invitation of the economic and Engineering department of the yankee Chemical Society to arrange the thirty third Annual Chemical Engineering Symposium. We determined to name the symposium, Chemical Engineering in medication and Biology, and consequently refrained from the matter of getting to choose which "bio" prefix to exploit. Many chemical engineers within the educational and commercial international have been contacted. From those contacts and a great deal of exposure arose the Symposium. The two-day assembly used to be held on the college of Cincinnati within the Losantiville Room of the scholar Union construction on October 20-21, 1966. Twenty-one papers have been provided on subject matters pertaining to chemical engineering to medication and biology. Tile papers have been illustration­ al of the scope of the actions around the state with presenters coming from Washington, California, Massachusetts, long island, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Indiana and Texas. themes ranged over blood move houses, diffusion in blood phenomena, ix creation X mass move within the eye, man made kidney research, separation of micro organism through ion alternate, mathematical modeling of drug distribution, carbon dioxide respiratory, photosynthetic kinetics, water in frozen tissues, electrophoretic separation of proteins, and outerspace re­ seek on existence help systems.

It truly is most likely secure to foretell that the way forward for chemistry is associated with the excited states of molecules and to different brief lived species, ions and loose radicals. Molecules have just one flooring nation yet many excited states. even if huge the scope of standard, floor nation chemistry should be, above and past it lies the realm of excited states, each having its personal chemis­ try out.

That is, the upper platen is now past the point where the apex of the truncated cone would touch by this amount. The torsion head carriage can now be raised to introduce the sample on the lower platen. The platens can be reset to the zero position at any time using the gap setting transducer and meter. The sample to be tested can now be loaded on the platen. 8 (10) where D = diameter of platens in em a = angle of cone in degrees Normally an amount of sample equal to 10% more than this amount should be used to allow a surplus, with the surplus being smoothed awey from the edge of the gap as the upper platen is positioned.

For a normal value of hematocrit (H ~ 45%), the log viscosity versus log shear rate curve consists of three regions, a representation supported by the theory that blood consists of aggregates of blood cells whose size is related to the applied shear. At low values of shear rate (a< l0- 2sec-1 ), where the applied stress is only of sufficient magnitude to orient the aggregates to the shear field, the linear nature of the plot suggests that blood may be represented as a power-law fluid. In the region 10 -2 < a the curve is non-linear, and the stress probably results in a breaking down of the aggregates.
