Simple Harmonics

Simple Harmonics

Aylmer Express, January 2015 | download

Stationary simple harmonic oscillations in a compliant artery (arteriographic standing waves) suggested sound waves (over 150,000 v.p.s. ultrasound) and coherent fluid shear waves, inspiring a theory that amplified shear-induced coherent sound energy from the dominant flutter waves of transition, causes turbulence, with resistance rising exponentially as the flow rate increases. Transverse coherent sound energy, as standing waves, freezes laminae, creating plastic flow longitudinally. In cylinders, longitudinally frozen laminae allow transverse streaming flows (in the plane of amplified reverberating sound) to display transverse flows in distinctive Taylor streaming turbulence units. In arteries, resonating transverse standing wave sound propagates longitudinally, producing simple harmonic arteriographic standing waves, with the now non-laminar fluid flowing like toothpaste.

The Nurses are Innocent - The Digoxin Poisoning Fallacy

Dundurn Press, Toronto, November 2011 | purchase at Amazon or Indigo (Chapters)

In 1980-81, 43 babies died at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children from a supposed digoxin overdose. Serial murder was suspected, leading to the arrest of nurse Susan Nelles. In order to clear Nelles's name, an investigation was launched to find an alternate explanation.

Transition to Turbulence - Dynamic Standing Waves

Transition to Turbulence - Dynamic Standing Waves

December 2009 | download

This is a theory of the Physics of transition from laminar to turbulent flow in Fluid Dynam-ics. Turbulence is considered to represent a state of chaos in the fluid flow. In spite of this "chaos," long crested simple harmonic waves develop in the sand of beaches and riverbeds, along stretches of snow and on water in the wind - waves created only as transition occurs and which persist and grow in turbulent flow.

Coherent Sound Energy in Transition to Turbulence

Coherent Sound Energy in Transition to Turbulence

UWO Graphic Services, May 2008 | download

In 1957, during a Neurology / Neurosurgery phase of a two year Internal Medicine residency, I encountered arteriographic standing waves displayed in an x-ray image of an artery. These waves had developed during the rapid injection of a radio-opaque dye into a carotid artery. This phenomenon led me to picture these as stationary sound waves in a compliant tube (an artery), resembling the standing waves demonstrated in the Kundt's tube experiment in the Physics of Sound in high school.

The Rising Menace of Toxic Enterocolitis of Clostridium Difficile et al

Unpublished Article 2007 | download

In my retirement, I discovered that massive amounts of antibiotics were being used as food additives in industrial livestock operations ("factory farms") in Canada and the USA, defying everything I had been taught in medical school about the rational use of antibiotics.
