We believe that both strategies for reducing the cells speed are interesting and both show advantages and disadvantages: (i) changing the geometry is very simple in the fabrication step; however it leads to a nonperfect straight trajectory of the cells; (ii) acting on the viscosity of the liquid could be not always possible; however, it permits working with a narrowed confined flow and thus a deterministic path of the cells.
For that purpose, let us consider a confined flow of Non-Newtonian power-law fluid around a heated square cylinder in a two-dimensional vertical channel.
During die filling (the next step), flowability remains important, both flow induced by gravity and more confined flow as the feeder forces powder into the die.
During die filling (the next step), flowability remains important; both flow into the empty die and confined flow as the die fills.
In spite of its complexity, HMAC noise can be analysed as two main types of noise sources: the centrifugal fan noise and the noise generated in the confined flow meeting obstacles.
10 and 11 suggest that, as the polymer temperature reduces, the zone with temperature above [T.sub.g] reduces, thus resulting in a more confined flow field near the polymer-cutter contact, i.e.
considered cases of confined flow in a channel with high vertical sidewalls and unconfined flow with a floodplain.
