• Modeling and control of arterial oxygen saturation in premature infants 

    Krone, Bradley (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)
    In this work modeling and control of neonatal infant's blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) is investigated. Through analyzing the biological system, it was shown that the blood is oxygenated through the mechanisms of ventilation, ...
  • Testing the pressure transient flow-force for spool-type two-way valves 

    Zhang, Shusen (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)
    An analysis is presented of the flow force acting on a two-way valve using the equilibrium condition of the piston and the equilibrium condition of fluid in the control volume. Three types of flow forces are identified: ...
