This paper describes anisotropy of various second moments along with detailed mean velocities in the human breathing zone. High anisotropy levels have been anticipated due to the complexity of the flow and low Reynolds number in our cubicle sized setting. The measurement system is a standard stereo PIV system acquiring data along a sinusoidal breathing waveform in the breathing zone of a thermal manikin both with and without rotational motion. Results suggest that the airflow due to breathing is anisotropic. Because of this, common isotropic assumptions made in this environment are not admissible.
“THE IGUANA WITH A TONGUE OF FIRE”— Murder in Dublin
In the Josiah Charles Trent History of Medicine Room at the Rubenstein Library, Duke radiology research fellow Fides Schwartz unrolls a little hand-sized puff of bubble wrap and lays out on the table all the pieces of a neat, slightly translucent white medical manikin, about six inches tall. The twenty-two manikins are tiny, intricately carved anatomical dolls probably made in the late seventeenth century in Germany. They were long thought to be tools for medical teaching, but that now seems unlikely, Schwartz notes, since it turns out they were made of ivory, which is pretty expensive material for something students were going to handle a lot. There are fewer than of these figurines worldwide, so as an effort toward protection and understanding, the library began having the manikins scanned in
The Duke University History of Medicine Collection acquires, preserves, interprets, and makes available for research and instruction, materials documenting the history of medicine, biomedical science, health and disease in the global context of the Western medical tradition. The collection seeks to bring historical perspectives to bear on contemporary health issues and to facilitate an interdisciplinary understanding of the history of medicine. The collection consists of over 20, rare and unique medical books and journals.
