Where technology & law meet: Open Access research on data security & its regulation ...

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs exploring both the technical aspects of computer security, but also the regulation of existing or emerging technologies. A research specialism of the Department of Computer & Information Sciences (CIS) is computer security. Researchers explore issues surrounding web intrusion detection techniques, malware characteristics, textual steganography and trusted systems. Digital forensics and cyber crime are also a focus.

Meanwhile, the School of Law and its Centre for Internet Law & Policy undertake studies on Internet governance. An important component of this work is consideration of privacy and data protection questions and the increasing focus on cybercrime and 'cyberterrorism'.

Abstract

Microfluidics refers to the science and technology that deals with devices which manipulate and examine fluid flows in small scaled systems (1μm - 1000μm). The possibility of such microfabricated channels to replicate the natural environment at the dimensional scale of many biological and industrial processes, together with the small amount of volume sample they require, increased rapidly their popularity in many fields (i.e. biotechnology, engineering etc.). Additionally, microfluidics offers the ability to produce fluid flows that are characterised by high deformation rates under small Reynolds numbers (Re), offering a promising platform for investigating fluids described by complex rheological behaviour. That way, important viscoelastic effects.
