The generation of multiple jets from needleless electrospinning has been explained as the waves of an electrically conductive liquid self-organizing in mesoscopic scale which finally forms jets when the applied eclectic field intensity exceeds the critical intensity [15].
One of the important phenomena describes the energy dissipation in heterogeneous clastic rocks is due to wave induced fluid flow at mesoscopic scale of heterogeneities.
The purpose of using this technique is to establish clear connections between the mechanisms that generate acoustic signals and the fatigue damage at mesoscopic scale. As the results of this interdisciplinary research consists on the one hand the development of a new concept for fatigue life prediction based on the physical degradation mechanisms of the materials.
At the mesoscopic scale, we described nematic orientational ordering by the nematic tensor order parameter Q [11].
With the advances in computing power, different modeling methods of concrete in the mesoscopic scale were proposed [2-9].
The nucleation and growth of microcracks would lead to a concentration of these microcracks into a narrow zone and produce a visible macroscopic fissure wider than 1.0 mm [18], so the process from damage to fracture could be studied on a mesoscopic scale. Since the statistical damage-based approach has been used successfully to address rock constitutive behaviors [19-21], as a quite attractive tool for investigating deformation processes and failure mechanisms in the mechanics of geomaterial community, it has been especially favored by many researchers.
In the mesoscopic scale, the situation is even more complicated.
A small sample of the individual chapter topics includes arborescent polymers with a mesoscopic scale, living polymerization of ylides, highly branched functional polymer architectures using click chemistry, and precision polyolefins.
On a mesoscopic scale, the two materials exhibit noticeable differences, as illustrated in figure 2.
Such interplay can be exploited as a mean to control and manipulate the spin degree of freedom at mesoscopic scale useful for phase-coherent spintronics applications.
Reducing energy systems to the mesoscopic scale may one day yield fuel reformers for electric cars, 20 times the portable energy of batteries, or perhaps a visit to Mars.
SANS uses elastic neutron scattering at small scattering angles (0.5 10) to investigate the structure of various substances at a mesoscopic scale of about 1-1000 nanometer and provides a powerful diagnostic toll to explore the world at nanometre scale.
