Microfluidic Model to Mimic Initial Event of Neovascularization Ping Zhao1, Xing Zhang1, Xiao Liu1, Li Wang4, Haoran Su1, Liyi Wang1, Dongrui Zhang1, Xiaoyan Deng3, Yubo Fan1,2 1Beijing Advanced Innovation Centre for Biomedical Engineering, Key Laboratory for Biomechanics and Mechanobiology of Chinese Education Ministry, School of Biological Science and Medical Engineering, Beihang University, 2School of Engineering Medicine, Beihang University, 3Artificial Intelligence Key Laboratory of Sichuan Province, School of Automation and Information Engineering, Sichuan University of Science and Engineering, 4Beijing Research Center of Urban System Engineering Here, we provide a microfluidic chip and an automatically controlled, highly efficient circulation microfluidic system that recapitulates the initial microenvironment of neovascularization, allowing endothelial cells (ECs) to be stimulated by high luminal shear stress, physiological level of transendothelial flow, and various vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) distribution simultaneously.
A 100 KW Class Applied-field Magnetoplasmadynamic Thruster Baojun Wang1, Haibin Tang2, Yibai Wang1, Chao Lu1, Cheng Zhou3, Yangyang Dong1, Ge Wang3, Yuntian Cong3, Daniel Luu4, Jinbin Cao2 1Key Laboratory of Spacecraft Design Optimization & Dynamic Simulation Technologies of Ministry of Education, School of Astronautics, Beihang University, 2Key Laboratory of Spacecraft Design Optimization & Dynamic Simulation Technologies of Ministry of Education, School of Space and Environment, Beihang University, 3Beijng Institute of Control Engineering, 4School of Aerospace Engineering and Geodesy, University of Stuttgart The goal of this protocol is to introduce the design of a 100 kW class applied-field magnetoplasmadynamic thruster and relevant experimental methods.
Preparation and High-temperature Anti-adhesion Behavior of a Slippery Surface on Stainless Steel Pengfei Zhang1, Chen Huawei1, Guang Liu1, Liwen Zhang1, Deyuan Zhang1 1School of Mechanical Engineering and Automation, Beihang University Slippery surfaces provide a new way to solve the adhesion problem. This protocol describes how to fabricate slippery surfaces at high temperatures. The results demonstrate that the slippery surfaces showed anti-wetting for liquids and a remarkable anti-adhesion effect on soft tissues at high temperatures.
