Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

    Using a cylindrical nozzle and seat of a Pressure Relief Valve (PRV) the surface form and waviness is modelled using actual metrological data i.e. average surface form and waviness (Wa and Wsm) in a 1/4 symmetry manner. To model the surface waviness the technique used is based on the summing technique created by Tsukizoe & Hisakado (1965) for micro contact analysis. Due to the actual surface form measurements being in the micro-meter range, the model is required to incorporate micro and macro-meter dimensions. The material in question is stainless steel. The deformed finite element analysis model is then transferred into a CAD geometry allowing the void space to be meshed and solved using computational fluid dynamics.
