Tissue movement in bipopulation tumour cord growth
Simulation of tumor cord growth where conversion of the tumor to glycolytic (anaerobic) metabolism takes place under hypoxia. This video shows volume fraction of glycolytic cell population and velocity of tissue movement. Isolines show hypoxia limits for aerobic and anaerobic cell lines respectively. This video reflects work in progress and may be different from the final results.

While knowing the history of the automobile is interesting, knowing how they work is also interesting. The automotive brake or to be more specific, the drum brake is what this instruction is designed to review. In this i
