    Full Text Available Motivados por la importancia del ruido como riesgo laboral en las actividades productivas de la Carpintería de Aluminio "Tomás Alvarez Breto" decidimos realizar un control audiométrico periódico de estos trabajadores con la finalidad de determinar el grado de exposición de los mismos y establecer las recomendaciones más importantes para su protección. Nos propusimos como objetivo determinar el grado de afectación auditiva por ruido en los trabajadores expuestos al riesgo, para lo cual se cuantificaron los niveles de ruido existentes en los diferentes puestos de trabajo, se confeccionaron las historias clínicas y se realizó un examen otoscópico y una prueba audiométrica en ambos oídos para definir el daño acústico y la presencia de hipoacusia profesional en los obreros estudiados. Al concluir el estudio pudimos comprobar que el ruido constituía un contaminante de gran importancia en esta industria. Este riesgo laboral se encontraba por encima del nivel de seguridad de 85 db(A en 9 de los 13 departamentos con que cuenta el centro y ha afectado la salud de los trabajadores ya que existían 77 casos (78,5% de hipoacusia atribuible al ruido y un gran número de trabajadores (30,6% expuestos a elevados niveles de ruido innecesariamente por la naturaleza de su labor. Por todo esto recomendamos tomar medidas que reduzcan el nivel de ruido en los puestos de trabajo donde existían niveles superiores a los permitidos, exigirse el uso de los medios de protección auditiva en los trabajadores expuestos y cumplirse estrictamente con los exámenes médicos preventivos, incluyendo las pruebas audiométricas anualmente.Motivated by the importance of the noise like labour risk in the productive activities of Aluminium Carpentry Tomas Alvarez Breto we decide to carry out a control periodic audiometric of these workers with the purpose of to determine the degree of exhibition of the same ones and to establish the most important recommendations for

    Full Text Available Se realizó un estudio descriptivo de corte transversal, en la Empresa de Productos Lácteos “Escambray”, de Cumanayagua, Cienfuegos, durante el período de junio a diciembre de 2005, con el objetivo de determinar los niveles de ruidos y evaluar la función auditiva en los 82 trabajadores expuestos a ruidos de intensidad igual o superior a los 85 dB-A. Las variables seleccionadas para el estudio fueron: intensidad de los ruidos, años de exposición, tipo de ruido, información previa sobre el uso de medios de protección y su vía de obtención, así como el uso de los medios de protección y las causas por las cuales no son usados. De las 24 áreas estudiadas, 15 (62,5 % tenían niveles de ruidos igual o superior a 85 dB-A. La información previa sobre el uso de los medios de protección para ruidos fue ínfima, pues el 96,3 % de los trabajadores no los usaban, el 62,2 % llevaba más de 10 años de exposición a ruidos y 24 obreros mostraron pérdidas auditivas, de ellos, 5 (20,8 % sin respuesta a intensidades de 25 dB, 12 (50,0 % a intensidades de 40 dB y 7 (29,2 % no respondieron a estímulos sonoros de 60 dB. A modo de conclusión, consideramos, que la contaminación sonora inherente a la entidad estudiada es elevada, los niveles medidos no cumplen con las recomendaciones que existen a escala internacional ni con los criterios higiénicos industriales, y actúan perjudicialmente sobre la audición, por lo que recomendamos la ejecución de medidas para proteger al personal y atenuar los altos índices de emisiones acústicas contaminantes.A descriptive, cross-sectional study was undertaken at the "Escambray" Dairies Enterprise of Cumanayagua, Cienfuegos, from June to December, 2005, aimed at determining the levels of noise and at evaluating the auditory function among 82 workers exposed to a noise intensity equal to or over 85 dB-A .The variables selected for the study were: noise intensity, years of exposure, type of noise, previous

    Full Text Available Electrochemical noise is one of the methods of analysis used to interpret the phenomenon of corrosion. It has a number of advantages over other methodology types including its simplicity, its low cost and the fact that it does not disturb the system. This methodology appears to be effective together with other techniques in metal-electrolyte systems. In this case the technique is applied on its own on commercial anti-corrosion paints for which no information is available from other techniques. The main result of this study reveals the effectiveness of the noise resistance parameter, which had already been tested in the lab, when it is used to explain how the paint system behaves in industry.La medida e interpretación del Ruido Electroquímico (REQ es uno de los métodos de análisis utilizados para la interpretación del fenómeno de la corrosión. Presenta, frente a otros tipos de metodologías, una serie de ventajas como son su sencillez, bajo coste y el hecho de ser un método no perturbativo. Esta metodología se ha mostrado eficaz en el estudio de sistemas metal desnudo-electrolito combinada con otras técnicas de análisis. En este caso se aplicó al estudio de pinturas comerciales utilizadas en procesos de prevención de la corrosión de las que no se tenían otro tipo de información. Como principal resultado de este estudio se muestra la eficacia de la aplicación de la resistencia de ruido, ya verificada en ensayos a nivel de laboratorio, para explicar el comportamiento de sistemas de pinturas que actualmente se están utilizando en la industria.

    Full Text Available Fundamento: El ruido es un agente de contaminación ambiental al que esta expuesto un porcentaje elevado de la población urbana, así como la residente en el entorno de focos emisores importantes. La bahía de Pasaia es un entorno industrial y urbano degradado ambientalmente con importantes focos de ruido.Métodos: Se realizó un estudio transversal de percepción al ruido en el entorno de la bahía de Pasaia, en 351 viviendas seleccionadas al azar, utilizando un cuestionario estructurado que recogía información sobre la autopercepción de la molestia y sensibilidad al ruido. La medida de la exposición sonora se modelizó partiendo de la caracterización de los principales focos sonoros.Resultados: El ruido provocaba molestia al 37.5% de la población estudiada. El 60% refirió que la principal fuente de molestia era el tráfico, seguida por la actividad del puerto (24%. La molestia atribuida al ruido no se correlacionó con los niveles sonoros estimados, pero si con el grado de sensibilidad mostrado a este agente (r=0.36; p<0.01. El porcentaje de población que indicó interferencia del ruido con actividades como conciliar el sueño (9.5% no fue elevado. Sin embargo, un 50% de los encuestados ya había instalado en la vivienda algún tipo de asilamiento frente al ruido.Conclusiones: La relación entre el grado de molestia causado por el ruido, la sensibilidad al mismo, los niveles sonoros y otras variables sociodemográficas revelan un mundo complejo de interacciones. El hecho de que la mitad de la población haya tomado medidas para contrarrestar el efecto del ruido puede influir en la molestia atribuida a este agente.

    Full Text Available The aim of this study was to measure the frequency of hearing loss in a sample of typical public high-school students exposed to recreational noise, and determine associated risk factors. The sample was made up of 214 teenagers from a high-school in Mexico City; subjects were selected randomly per strata. We applied a questionnaire to identify risk factors for hearing loss and performed a battery of audiologic tests consisting of otoscopy, tympanometry, and pure-tone audiometry. The mean age of the sample was 16 ± 1.07 years; 73% were male and 27%, female. Hearing loss was found in 21% of students. The main hearing loss-related risk factor was exposure to recreational noise: frequent attendance at discotheques and pop-music concerts; use of personal stereos; and noise exposure in school workshops. The high frequency of hearing loss in high school students from one Mexico City school (nearly one fifth of the sample was found to be related to noise exposure mainly during recreational activities.El objetivo de este estudio fue medir la frecuencia de alteraciones auditivas en una muestra de escolares de educación media superior expuestos a ruido recreativo y determinar algunos factores de riesgo asociados.

    Full Text Available En el artículo se informa sobre un grupo de artefactos arqueológicos singulares hechos de varios materiales como piedra, hueso, madera, metal y barro que pudieron ser usados como herramientas sonoras, pero no son muy conocidos ni se habían estudiado formalmente. Su función y uso originales se desconocen, pero los artefactos sonoros que se han examinado directamente pueden producir sonidos extraordinarios que se asemejan a los de algunos animales y de fenómenos de la naturaleza como el viento. Los más sencillos morfológicamente se pueden tocar dentro de la boca. Por el tipo de mecanismo sonoro y las señales que generan funcionan como generadores de ruido bucales. Morfológicamente, muestran dos perforaciones cara a cara y una cámara resonadora y de caos entre ellos. En este documento se proporciona la información disponible sobre los generadores de ruido bucales antiguos y contemporáneos que se han encontrado. Se aplica un método de análisis de aerófonos antiguos, mismo que ya se ha complementado y aplicado en más de sesenta estudios originales, incluyendo una tesis. En general, se indican las principales características organológicas, acústicas y posibles usos de los generadores de ruido bucales que fueron identificados y analizados por el autor. El análisis comparativo de los sonidos complejos y variables en el tiempo se realiza con espectrogramas y se dan estimaciones de algunos parámetros acústicos básicos como presión sonora (en dB y potencia acústica radiada máxima (en Watts. Los generadores de ruido bucales mesoamericanos conocidos provienen de varias zonas como las del Golfo y del Occidente, pero los últimos identificados son de las zonas de San Lorenzo Tenochtitlán, Veracruz y de San Juan Raya, Puebla. Finalmente, se sugieren trabajos para el futuro

    Aballe, A.

    2004-04-01

    Full Text Available Statistical parameters are usually applied for analysing electrochemical noise signals coming from corroding systems. Thus, among those, mean voltage, current standard deviation and noise resistance have been both frequently and successfully used to analyse ENM data. However, their application can lead to wrong interpretations when asymmetric signals are analysed. For studying this kind of signals, alternative parameters are proposed in this paper in order to get reliable interpretations of experimental data. These statistical parameters are Median, Median Absolute Deviation (MAD, and a new Noise Resistance (calculated through MAD.

    En el análisis de señales de ruido electroquímico se emplean frecuentemente parámetros estadísticos para evaluar distintos procesos de corrosión. Algunos de los parámetros más utilizados son la media del potencial, la desviación estándar de la corriente, y la resistencia de ruido. En la bibliografía se encuentran descritos múltiples ejemplos en los que estos parámetros han sido utilizados con éxito. No obstante, su empleo puede conducir a interpretaciones erróneas en el caso de que las señales a analizar presenten una alta asimetría. Para el estudio de sistemas que dan lugar a señales con estas características, en este trabajo se propone utilizar parámetros alternativos que conducen a una interpretación más fiable de los registros experimentales. Concretamente, se propone el empleo de parámetros tales como la Mediana, la Desviación Absoluta de la Mediana (DAM y la resistencia de ruido calculada a partir de los parámetros anteriores.

    Full Text Available This article gives a general account of the noise problem in air conditioning systems. This problem causes grave concern to the technicians owing to its influence on the comfort of the buildings concerned. The acceptable levels of noise are discussed, also their codification into general specifications. Methods are given to test whether a given installation satisfies such noise specifications, and the means that are usually adopted to prevent air conditioning noise from extending into inhabited rooms. The study of the limitation of noise to a comfortable level depends both on the noise specifications and the actual design of the installation. Scale «A» is utilised in connection with the specifications, and the sound spectral curves are part of the design technique, which enables to obtain the cheapest design for the same level of comfort. The designer needs the fullest cooperation of the manufacturers, who should supply him with detailed accoustical data about the equipment. This applies both to installations that will produce noise and to the material that is meant to absorb it.Se expone en este artículo una idea general del problema del ruido en instalaciones de aire acondicionado, problema que preocupa hondamente en los medios técnicos correspondientes, por su gran influencia en el confort de los edificios. Se dan las cifras de niveles de presión sonora admisibles, recomendables para un Pliego de Condiciones, y el procedimiento para comprobar si las instalaciones terminadas lo cumplen, así como los medios normalmente utilizados para evitar la emisión de ruido a los locales habitados.

    Full Text Available Résumén: Las técnicas de reducción de ruido son ampliamente utilizadas en la grabación de audio, la edición de imágenes y en el procesamiento de señales industriales. La idea es reconstruir los datos originales a partir de la señal ruidosa suprimiendo toda, o casi toda, la distorsión generada por el ruido inherente a los procesos físicos. En el presente trabajo se realiza una comparación de diferentes métodos de supresión de ruido que se basan en la selección adaptativa del umbral. Estas técnicas han sido usadas extensivamente en el procesamiento de imágenes pero el objetivo de este trabajo es evaluar su rendimiento en la reducción de ruido de señales industriales. En particular se analiza el comportamiento de los métodos Bayes Shrink, Normal Shrink, Modified Shrink y Neight Shrink para la reducción de ruido gaussiano en estas señales. A tales efectos se utilizó un conjunto de señales patrón, que incluye a las señales propuestas por Donoho y otras mediciones representativas obtenidas de procesos reales en las plantas de Níquel cubanas. Las pruebas realizadas revelan que el algoritmo Neigh Shrink es el que mejor se comporta en los datos analizados. Abstract: Noise reduction techniques are widely used for audio recording, image editing, and industrial signal processing. The idea is to reconstruct the original data from the noise-corrupted signal suppressing, all or almost all, the distortion caused by the inherent noise of the physical processes. In the present paper, we perform a comparative review of several noise reduction techniques based on adaptive threshold selection. These techniques have been extensively used for image processing. However, we aimed at evaluating their performance for industrial signal noise reduction. In particular, we analyze the behaviour of the Bayes Shrink, Normal Shrink, Modified Shrink, and Neight Shrink methods for the reduction of the

The interviewees declared that the main sourceof annoyance was the traffic (60% followed by the activity in the harbour (24%. The annoyance attributed tonoise was not correlated with the estimated sound level, but with the level of sensitivity to this physical agent(r=0.36; pConclusions: The relationship among the degree of annoyance caused by noise, the sensitivity to noise, the sound levels and other social and demographic variables show a very interrelated and complex phenomenon. The fact that half of the population had taken any measure to protect them from noise could have mitigated the percentage of people that declare to be annoyed by noise.Fundamento: El ruido es un agente de contaminación ambiental al que esta expuesto un porcentaje elevado de la población urbana, así como la residente en el entorno de focos emisores importantes.

    Full Text Available Uno de los recursos estratégicos postmodernistas por excelencia es el espectro electromagnético, pero su potencialidad depende en alto grado de la atenuación de los ruidos bien sean de origen natural como artificial, si a lo anterior le sumamos el desarrollo acelerado de las telecomunicaciones en el mundo y en Colombia, como resultado de la liberalización del sector, se plantean nuevos y exigentes retos, como el de diseñar permanentemente redes dentro de un ambiente donde cada operador debe garantizar la compatibilidad al interior de su red y la compatibilidad con otras ajenas. Para evitar conflictos técnicos entre operadores y garantizar una buena calidad de los servicios a los usuarios, es de vital importancia, diseñar las redes de acuerdo con las normas establecidas sobre los niveles de ruidos aceptados, dependiendo del tipo de red. En este artículo se analiza el ruido en las redes teniendo en cuenta las exigencias de los organismos internacionales, sobre todo la UIT, para que sirva de base y de referencia a los ingenieros encargados actualmente de los diseños de redes, compra o fabricación de equipos de telecomunicaciones y especialmente de telefonía, esto es especialmente importante después del ingreso de Colombia a la Organización Mundial del Comercio, OMC, en virtud del cual estamos obligados a exigir y proporcionar equipos y servicios de acuerdo con las recomendaciones internacionales.

    Full Text Available Introducción: El estrés es la condición que resulta cuando las personas y el medio ambiente interaccionan y lleva a la persona a una percepción alterada, real o imaginaria, entre las exigencias de una situación por un lado y sus consecuencias sociales, biológicas, psicológicas o de recursos. Los estímulos estresantes pueden ser mentales, fisiológicos, o físico-anatómicos1. En el caso particular de los odontólogos, no existe suficiente información en la literatura internacional en relación a los efectos que tiene en ellos la exposición al ruido producido por el instrumental necesario para llevar acabo los tratamientos. Método: Se realizó un estudio descriptivo y comparativo, con la finalidad de evaluar el nivel de percepción de estrés resultado de la exposición al ruido de un grupo de 45 estomatólogos. Todos los sujetos, contestaron una encuesta auto-aplicada sobre percepción de ruido originado por el uso de equipos que ocasionan estímulos detonadores de estrés. Este instrumento también incluyó preguntas sobre características y ambiente laboral. Los estomatólogos se clasificaron según su nivel de percepción de ruido en aquellos con bajo (90 dB de exposición. Estos grupos también se compararon en relación a la percepción de estrés. Resultados: El promedio de la edad y la antigüedad laboral de los sujetos estudiados fue de 41±8.4 y 15.9 ± 8.7 años, respectivamente. El 58%, mencionaron trabajar solo un turno y 42% trabajaban en los turnos matutino y vespertino. El 44% de los encuestados manifestaron percibir la intensidad del ruido al interior del consultorio como medio, el 40%, manifestó percibirlo como bajo, y el 13.3% dijo que éste era alto. Los valores promedio del nivel del ruido en decibelios, fueron significativamente mayores en los odontólogos generales al compararlos con los especialistas en odontología (t=-4.9, p 90dB/8 horas y los que refieren percibir el ruido como más intenso al compararlos

    Full Text Available The most important difficulty to use electrochemical noise measurement resides in the interpretation of the experimental data. In the literature, three different main approaches have been proposed for processing the experimental records: the statistical, the spectral and the Chaos-Theory based methods. The purpose of this work is to introduce an alternative tool to analyse electrochemical noise: the wavelet transform. It has been found that this tool could be especially usefully to distinguish localised and uniform corrosion processes that are developing simultaneously. To show that, a current noise record corresponding to working electrodes suffering from both kind of corrosion process is analysed by means of the wavelet transform. These results are compared with the ones coming form the Fourier. In addition, a brief theoretical description of the tool is presented and some applications in the field of the industrial monitoring are suggested.

    La dificultad más importante para usar la medida del ruido electroquímico reside en la interpretación de los datos experimentales. En la literatura, se han propuesto básicamente tres aproximaciones diferentes para procesar los registros experimentales: la estadística, la espectral y los métodos basados en la teoría del caos. El propósito de este trabajo es introducir una herramienta alternativa para el análisis del ruido electroquímico: la transformada de wavelets. Se ha encontrado que esta herramienta podría ser especialmente útil para distinguir procesos localizados y uniformes que se desarrollan simultáneamente. Con este objetivo, se han analizado mediante la transformada de wavelets registros de ruido de corriente correspondientes a electrodos de trabajo que sufren ambos tipos de procesos de corrosión. Estos resultados son comparados con los obtenidos al aplicar la transformada de Fourier. Además, se presenta brevemente una descripción teórica de la herramienta y

    Steam silencers have been placed on the power units regulation system of the Cerro Prieto geothermal field, but not where the steam-pipes vent high-pressure steam (rupture disks). Moreover, the power-unit silencers are large and their abilities to reduce noise depend on an external, uncontrollable factor: pores sizes in the volcanic rocks they are made of. Thus a compact, economic and relatively easy to construct metallic silencer was designed to be used at several points of dry-steam venting to minimize the noise. The design was based on orifice-plate equations and a prototype was constructed and tested. It proved capable of reducing noise by 30 decibels for atmospheric discharges of primary steam at operating pressures. The size of the silencer can be adjusted to the particular needs of each vent case. [Spanish] En el campo geotermico de Cerro Prieto solo existen silenciadores de vapor en el sistema de regulacion de las plantas generadoras, pero no en los sitios de desfogue de vapor a alta presion en los vaporductos (discos de ruptura). Ademas, los silenciadores de las plantas son muy robustos y su capacidad de reduccion del ruido depende de un factor externo no controlable, como es el tamano del poro de la roca volcanica con el que estan construidos. Por lo tanto, se diseno un silenciador metalico compacto, economico y relativamente facil de fabricar, para utilizarse en diversos puntos de descarga de vapor seco a fin de minimizar el ruido. El diseno se realizo con base en las ecuaciones de la placa de orificio. Se construyo un prototipo cuyas pruebas demostraron que es capaz de reducir el ruido hasta en 30 decibeles, al descargar desde la presion de operacion de vapor primario hacia la presion atmosferica. Las dimensiones del silenciador pueden ajustarse a las necesidades particulares de cada caso de desfogue.

    Full Text Available The concentration of chloride ions and the partial pressure of CO2 play an important role in the degradation of low-carbon steels used for the construction of pipelines in oil and gas industry. In order to evaluate the susceptibility of carbon steel API 5L X42 to pitting corrosion electrochemical noise and linear polarization resistance measurements were carried out in aqueous solutions containing chloride ions and CO2. The concentration of chloride ions was varied between, 10000 and 18000 ppm, and the CO2 partial pressure between 10 psi and 18 psi. Experimental results pointed out that the formation of protective layer, consisting mainly of FeCO 3, depends on the partial pressure of CO2 in the system. Nevertheless, the stability of this layer was considerably affected by increasing the concentration of chloride ions causing that localized corrosion has taken place in some areas of the surface of API 5L X42, which were detected by electrochemical noise echnique.La concentración de iones cloruro y la presión parcial de CO2, tienen un papel importante en el proceso de degradación de los aceros de bajo carbono empleados en la construcción de líneas de transporte en industrias petroleras.

Los resultados indican que la formación de una capa protectora, constituida principalmente por FeCO3, depende de la presión parcial de CO2 del sistema. No obstante, la estabilidad de dicha capa es afectada significativamente por el aumento de la concentración de iones cloruro, que producen fenómenos de corrosión localizada en algunas áreas de la superficie del acero API 5L X42, los cuales fueron detectados por la técnica de

    In this work, a fundamental investigation of an industrial (Cr,Al)N reactive high power pulsed magnetron sputtering (HPPMS) process is presented. The results will be used to improve the coating development for the addressed application, which is the tool coating for plastics processing industry. Substrate-oriented plasma diagnostics and deposition of the (Cr,Al)N coatings were performed for a variation of the HPPMS pulse frequency with values from f = 300 Hz to f = 2000 Hz at constant average power P = 2.5 kW and pulse length ton = 40 μs. The plasma was investigated using an oscilloscope, an intensified charge coupled device camera, phase-resolved optical emission spectroscopy, and an energy-dispersive mass spectrometer. The coating properties were determined by means of scanning electron microscopy, glow discharge optical emission spectroscopy, cantilever stress sensors, nanoindentation, and synchrotron X-ray diffraction. Regarding the plasma properties, it was found that the average energy within the plasma is nearly constant for the frequency variation. In contrast, the metal to gas ion flux ratio is changed from JM/JG = 0.51 to JM/JG = 0.10 for increasing frequency. Regarding the coating properties, a structure refinement as well as lower residual stresses, higher universal hardness, and a changing crystal orientation from (111) to (200) were observed at higher frequencies. By correlating the plasma and coating properties, it can be concluded that the change in the gas ion to metal ion flux ratio results in a competitive crystal growth of the film, which results in changing coating properties.

    In a PWR type reactor, the neutron noise increases gradually its amplitude because of boron dilution. In a KWU type reactor, this phenomena is more intense and might cause to descend the operating power along the cycle. It is likely that this behavior will occur in the EPR prototype. Noise amplitude analysis is made in this work by using advanced statistics techniques, results are: criteria for the choice of the best sensor to be used in the Reactor Safety Logic; and early detection of sensor malfunctions.

    This chapter addresses past, ongoing, and short (to 2010) and medium-term (to 2030) future actions that can be taken to mitigate GHG emissions from the manufacturing and process industries. Globally, and in most countries, CO{sub 2} accounts for more than 90% of CO{sub 2}-eq GHG emissions from the industrial sector (Price et al., 2006; US EPA, 2006b). These CO{sub 2} emissions arise from three sources: (1) the use of fossil fuels for energy, either directly by industry for heat and power generation or indirectly in the generation of purchased electricity and steam; (2) non-energy uses of fossil fuels in chemical processing and metal smelting; and (3) non-fossil fuel sources, for example cement and lime manufacture. Industrial processes also emit other GHGs, e.g.: (1) Nitrous oxide (N{sub 2}O) is emitted as a byproduct of adipic acid, nitric acid and caprolactam production; (2) HFC-23 is emitted as a byproduct of HCFC-22 production, a refrigerant, and also used in fluoroplastics manufacture; (3) Perfluorocarbons (PFCs) are emitted as byproducts of aluminium smelting and in semiconductor manufacture; (4) Sulphur hexafluoride (SF{sub 6}) is emitted in the manufacture, use and, decommissioning of gas insulated electrical switchgear, during the production of flat screen panels and semiconductors, from magnesium die casting and other industrial applications; (5) Methane (CH{sub 4}) is emitted as a byproduct of some chemical processes; and (6) CH{sub 4} and N{sub 2}O can be emitted by food industry waste streams. Many GHG emission mitigation options have been developed for the industrial sector. They fall into three categories: operating procedures, sector-wide technologies and process-specific technologies. A sampling of these options is discussed in Sections 7.2-7.4. The short- and medium-term potential for and cost of all classes of options are discussed in Section 7.5, barriers to the application of these options are addressed in Section 7.6 and the implication of

    2010-01-01

    Catalysts based on pillared clays with Al-Fe have been synthesised from a commercial bentonite and tested for catalytic wet peroxide oxidation (CWPO) of aqueous 4-Chlorophenol (4-CP) solution and industrial wastewater from cosmetics manufacture. The effect of the synthesis procedure, the iron load and reaction temperature on the catalytic activity was studied using 4-CP as target compound. A lower temperature in the preparation of the pillaring solution, as well as a higher Fe load, gave rise to a higher catalytic activity, but also a higher leaching of the active phase. The best catalyst, in terms of catalytic activity, was also tested for treating cosmetic wastewater by CWPO. Experiments were carried out at 90 degrees C and atmospheric pressure and the influence of Fe load, catalyst concentration and H(2)O(2)/COD ratio (between 0.5 and 2 times the stoichiometric ratio) were analysed. Higher values of these parameters favour COD reduction. The Fe leaching in all cases was lower than 1.2 mg/L, indicating that these catalysts have a high stability under these experimental conditions.

    Full Text Available Given its simplicity and low cost compared to other types of methodologies, the measurement and interpretation of Electrochemical Noise, is consolidating itself as one of the analysis methods most frequently used for the interpretation of corrosion. As the technique is still evolving, standard treatment methodologies for data retrieved in experiments do not exist yet. To date, statistical analysis and the Fourier analysis are commonly used in order to establish the parameters that may characterize the recordings of potential and current electrochemical noise. This study introduces a new methodology based on wavelet analysis and presents its advantages with regards to the Fourier analysis in distinguishing periodical and non-periodical variations in the signal power in time and frequency, as opposed to the Fourier analysis that only considerers the frequency.

    Por su sencillez y bajo coste frente a otros tipos de metodologías, la medida e interpretación del Ruido Electroquímico, REQ, se está consolidando como uno de los métodos de análisis más utilizados para la interpretación del fenómeno de la corrosión. Al ser una técnica en desarrollo, no existen todavía metodologías estandarizadas de tratamiento de los datos obtenidos en los experimentos. Hasta la fecha, se suelen utilizar el análisis estadístico y el análisis de Fourier para establecer parámetros que puedan caracterizar a los registros de ruido electroquímico de potencial e intensidad. En este trabajo se introduce una nueva metodología basada en el análisis Wavelet que presenta las ventajas, respecto del análisis de Fourier, de poder distinguir variaciones periódicas y no periódicas de la potencia de la señal tanto en el dominio del tiempo, como en el de la frecuencia, y no sólo en el dominio de la frecuencia como ocurre en el caso del análisis de Fourier.

    Full Text Available The behaviour of the AA2024 alloy against corrosion in 3.5 % NaCl solution has been monitored. In this environment the alloy can be easily damaged under small anodic polarizations. Linear polarization, electrochemical impedance, spectroscopy and electrochemical noise meassurement have been used as experimental techniques. Data from ENM have been analized using statistical parameters and Chaos Theory. The results here obtained suggest that ENM is particularly useful to monitor systems that can be modified using other electochemical techniques.

    2004-01-01

    Full Text Available A novel theoretical and experimental approach for lifetime modelling of MCrAlY coatings for stationary gas turbines has been undertaken using the Inverse Problem Solution (IPS technique. With this technique feasible experimental data acquired after a defined experimental time t e are used as input values for the model parameters estimation. In the first stage of the approach a model, based on the oxidation and diffusion processes (Fick's first and second law was assumed, which considers the Al concentration profile across the coating. The measured average Al concentration profiles in the two-phase g+b and g - regions of coating as well as base metal were used as input values for the model parameters estimation and calculational prediction of the long term diffusion and oxidation behavior of the coating was performed. The time, when the b-NiAl phase is completely consumed was assumed as the coating lifetime end. Exposure experiments were carried out with a NiCoCrAlY coating (200 micron thickness with 8% Al in air at 900 °C and 950 °C, currently up to 10000 h. The oxide scale is growing continuously and no other oxides were observed. The average and b-NiAl phase concentration profiles of Al across the coating thickness were determined by electron microprobe and image analysis systems in the initial state after 700 and 10000 h of oxidation. The concentration profile measured after 700 h was used as input values for the model parameters estimation in order to calculate the Al and b-NiAl phase concentration profiles after 10000 h. The computational forecast for 10000 h at 950 °C and 900 °C are in good agreement with the measured data. The approach was applied for NiCoCrAlY (200 micron thickness coating lifetime modelling at 950 °C and 900 °C as well as for different coating thicknesses at 950 °C.

    Funk, M.

    1991-01-01

    This study looks at the economic provision of useful energy forms (heat, power, light) in industrial operations. Included amongst the tasks of operational energy management are the configuration and running of industrial power-stations, the choise and drawing-up of elctricity sales contracts, the setting-up of internal energy prices and the balancing of the energy supply with production. The economic analysis of these and other planning problems in an industrial energy branch is carried out under consideration of the relevant legal, ecological and technical background. To this end, planning blocks are being developed, which can be systematically put together in a particular operational case in order to build up model- and ADP-supported productivity analyses. Realistic operational models explain in a concrete way the use of modern planning methods in the economic optimization of an industrial energy supply. The ADP-based possibilities for realization and the availability of the data are given as much consideration as the planning costs. The numerical problems can be solved on microcomputers using largely standard software. Sensitivity analyses permit a single-industry check an many disputed theories from public life and the technical area - e.g. on economically and environmentally 'meaningful' prices for industrial electricity.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Chen, Nian

    For the long-term strategy of gradual decarbonization of the world's energy supply, high penetration of PV electricity is critical in the future world energy landscape. In order to achieve this, solar electricity with competitive cost to fossil fuel energy is necessary. To be able to obtain high efficiency solar cells, many advanced cell architectures have been developed commercially by PV industry. However, the fabrication of these cells necessitates complex processing steps and high requirements on semiconductor materials, which make it not as cost-effective as the state-of-the-art conventional Al-BSF structure. In order to keep the cost of PV cell low and improve on the efficiency with fewer processing steps, this thesis work focuses on the understanding of the conventional Al-BSF solar cell structure. The research work therefore, focuses on the (i) design, and modeling of front metal electrodes including the use of multi-bus-bar capable of decreasing the gridline resistance, (ii) fine-line printing and (iii) metal contact co-firing using high belt speed that is not common to the solar industry to achieve ~20% efficient industrial Al-BSF silicon solar cells. In order to achieve the objectives of this thesis work, firstly, the appropriate Al paste was investigated for lowest back surface recombination velocity (BSRV), which gives high open circuit voltage (Voc). Secondly, the impact of emitter sheet resistance on solar cell performance was modeled to determine the optimal sheet resistance, and the uniformity of emitter was also investigated. Thirdly, modeling on the front metal electrodes was carried out to investigate the optimal number of busbars, and determine the optimum number of gridlines and gridline geometries that would result in low series resistance (Rs), high fill factor (FF) and hence high efficiency. Fourthly, the modeled results were experimentally validated through fine-line printing and optimized contact co-firing. By combining each layer to make

    Full Text Available The major problem plaguing propane dehydrogenation process is the coke formation on the Pt-Sn/Al2O3 catalyst which leads to catalyst deactivation. Due to information paucity, the physicochemical characteristics of the commercially obtained regenerated Pt-Sn/Al2O3 catalyst (operated in moving bed reactor and coke formation at different temperatures of reaction were discussed. The physicochemical characterization of regenerated catalyst gave a BET surface area of 104.0 m2/g with graphitic carbon content of 8.0% indicative of incomplete carbon gasification during the industrial propylene production. Effect of temperatures on coke formation was identified by studying the product yield via temperature-programmed reaction carried out at 500oC, 600oC and 700oC. It was found that ethylene was precursor to carbon laydown while propylene tends to crack into methane. Post reaction, the spent catalyst possessed relatively lower surface area and pore radius whilst exhibited higher carbon content (31.80% at 700oC compared to the regenerated catalyst.

    Full Text Available Los contrastes territoriales se ha incrementado desde el inicio de los procesos de globalización e integración, pero, al mismo tiempo, las ciudades están mostrando diferente capacidad de respuesta ante esas transformaciones. Dentro de la Unión Europea, el policentrismo y el papel de las ciudades intermedias han cobrado creciente importancia en la actual agenda política, especialmente en el caso de las regiones periféricas con problemas estructurales que dificultan su desarrollo. El artículo hace una revisión crítica del paradigma de los distritos industriales y los ambientes innovadores para centrarse en su posible utilidad en la búsqueda de las claves para la construcción de ciudades intermedias innovadoras. Se concede especial importancia a los actores locales, las redes institucionales, la organización de sistemas productivos locales y la gobernabilidad territorial. Por último, se plantean algunas propuestas para apoyar la consolidación de procesos innovativos en ciudades intermedias.

  17. Methanol Synthesis over Cu/ZnO/Al2O3: The Active Site in Industrial Catalysis

    2012-03-28

    Unlike homogeneous catalysts, heterogeneous catalysts that have been optimized through decades are typically so complex and hard to characterize that the nature of the catalytically active site is not known. This is one of the main stumbling blocks in developing rational catalyst design strategies in heterogeneous catalysis. We show here how to identify the crucial atomic structure motif for the industrial Cu/ZnO/Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} methanol synthesis catalyst. Using a combination of experimental evidence from bulk-, surface-sensitive and imaging methods collected on real high-performance catalytic systems in combination with DFT calculations. We show that the active site consists of Cu steps peppered with Zn atoms, all stabilized by a series of well defined bulk defects and surface species that need jointly to be present for the system to work.

    Biological waste water treatment requires biologically readily degradable carbon in order to permit elimination of as much nitrogen as possible. Often now this type of carbon is no longer present in waste water in an appropriate quantity, so that external carbon must be added. Apart from industrially fabricated substrates, the use of industrial residues and waste products as well as of partial waste water streams with a high organic pollutant load is lately being considered for cost reasons. But this is not altogether harmless. Those partial streams may contain substances that inhibit denitrification, impose an additional burden on subsequent cleaning stages or may even pass them unmodified, so that they are emitted into the environment and pose an ecological hazard potential. Hence, industrial residual products need to be specifically selected for use as an external carbon source in denitrification. A suitable strategy is described and demonstrated by means of different examples. (orig.) [German] In der biologischen Abwasserbehandlung ist fuer eine weitestgehende Stickstoffelimination oftmals biologisch gut abbaubarer Kohlenstoff im Abwasser nicht (mehr) in ausreichendem Masse vorhanden. Dann ist die Zugabe einer sog. externen Kohlenstoffquelle erforderlich. Neben industriell hergestellten Substraten wird in letzter Zeit aus Kostengruenden vielfach der Einsatz industrieller Rest- und Abfallstoffe sowie organisch hochbelasteter Abwasserteilstroeme erwogen. Dies ist jedoch nicht unproblematisch, da in diesen Stoffstroemen auch Substanzen enthalten sein koennen, die die Denitrifikation hemmen, nachfolgende Reinigungsstufen zusaetzlich belasten oder diese sogar unveraendert passsieren, dadurch in die Umwelt emittiert werden und damit moeglicherweise aus oekologischer Sicht ein Gefahrenpotential darstellen koennen.

    2006-12-01

    Full Text Available The launch of space craft generates extreme conditions, such as vibrations and acoustics that can affect the launch pad, space craft, and their payloads. The noise at launch and during the two-minute liftoff and transonic climb phase causes intense acoustic loads. These acoustic loads are the result of an intense acoustic environment generated by the interaction of the rocket-engine exhaust stream mixing with the atmosphere. Pyroshocks, that occur when spacecraft vehicle stages separate, cause additional vibration problems. In this article, an overview of the main aspects related to noise and vibration problems experienced by spacecraft structures is presented. Most of the information is based on the Space Shuttle experiences at the NASA's John F. Kennedy Space Center (KSC. In addition, a review of the vibroacoustic research being conducted at KSC is presented. These research programs are aimed at designing future space launch facilities, where cost and rocket exhaust launch noise are significantly reduced.El lanzamiento de los vehículos espaciales genera condiciones extremas, tales como de vibración y acústica, que pueden afectar la torre de lanzamiento, los vehículos espaciales y sus cargas. El ruido en el despegue y durante los dos minutos de ascenso y fase transónica causa intensas cargas acústicas. Estas cargas acústicas son el resultado del intenso medio ambiente acústico generado por la interacción del chorro de salida del motor del cohete y su mezcla con la atmósfera. Los choques pirotécnicos, que ocurren cuando las etapas de un vehículo espacial se separan, causan problemas adicionales de vibración. En este artículo se presenta una revisión de los principales aspectos relacionados con los problemas de ruido y vibración vividos por las estructuras de las naves espaciales. La mayoría de la información está basada en las experiencias con el trasbordador espacial en el Centro Espacial John F. Kennedy (KSC, de la NASA

La técnica de recolección de la información fue el cuestionario estructurado en Escala de Likert bajo 15 items y se utilizó la estadística descriptiva para analizar el resultado de los datos. Se concluye que la falta de canales de comunicación entre la gerencia y los empleados es lo que produce mayor resistencia al cambio frente a las transformaciones que Seguntex C.A comenzó a experimentar desde el 2012 y que afecto de manera negativa el desempeño laboral de los trabajadores en la empresa.

  6. Medida de ruido electroquímico para el estudio de procesos de corrosión de aleaciones metálicas

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2009-04-01

    Full Text Available Electrochemical noise (EN is a technique that allows the estimation of both the rate and the corrosion mechanism of different metallic alloys by means of the measurement and the analysis of the fluctuations of current and voltage. Its main advantage against other electrochemical techniques is that during the measurement process, the corrosive systems under study are not instrumentally disturbed, and therefore, the systems are kept at their natural corrosion potential. Two steps are necessary to use this technique: measurement and analysis of the EN signals. In this paper, the most important concepts related only to the measurement of EN are revised. The parameters most employed in the literature to analyse the EN signals will be described in another paper. In the present article, the experimental devices normally used to measure EN signals are firstly analysed. Subsequently, the most important properties of the EN signals are studied. Finally, the external sources of instrumental noise that can affect to the EN signals are described.

    El ruido electroquímico (electrochemical noise, EN es una técnica que permite estimar la velocidad y los mecanismos de corrosión de aleaciones metálicas mediante la medida y análisis de las fluctuaciones de corriente y potencial. Su principal ventaja frente a otras técnicas electroquímicas es que el proceso de medida no perturba externamente el sistema corrosivo, por lo que el sistema se mantiene en el potencial natural de corrosión. Las dos etapas necesarias para utilizar esta técnica son la medida y el análisis de las señales de ruido electroquímico. En este artículo, se revisan exclusivamente los conceptos más importantes de la etapa de medida, describiéndose la metodología necesaria para generar y registrar señales de ruido electroquímico. Los parámetros de análisis de señales más empleados en la bibliografía se describirán en otro artículo de revisión. En el presente trabajo se

    Full Text Available Las carreteras están espacialmente dispuestas en los paisajes y son utilizadas por el tránsito, generando ruido que puede afectar las áreas protegidas. El objetivo fue cuantificar los tramos de carretera, en contacto y en proximidad con áreas, e investigar los efectos que los parques pueden tener en relación con el tránsito y el ruido. Medimos tramos cercanos a las áreas utilizando el sistema de información geográfica y el Atlas de Costa Rica. El ruido y tránsito fueron cuantificados en tres áreas adyacentes a carreteras. Generamos mapas de ruido para evaluar la influencia sobre los sonidos naturales, tales como los de arroyos (geofonía y aves (biofonía. Grabamos la biofonía cerca y lejos de carretera en una de las áreas. Encontramos que 70 áreas protegidas son afectadas directa o indirectamente por las carreteras. El ruido fue mayor en carreteras con uso vehicular más alto que con uno menor, pero niveles de ruido también fueron influenciados por tipo de vehículo. El ruido penetró el bosque con mayores niveles en la estación seca que en la húmeda. Encontramos que la cantidad de biofonía en segundos fue menor cerca de la carretera y que el sonido del arroyo fue enmascarado por el ruido. Nuestros resultados sugieren que el ruido contribuye a la degradación del hábitat a través de la disminución y pérdida de sonidos naturales, reduciendo la calidad de la protección de la biodiversidad. Se debe considerar una acción interdisciplinaria y una planificación rigurosa para evitar la adyacencia de carreteras sobre las áreas protegidas.

    To verify noise emissions from the usual activities in an operating geothermal field, noise measurements were carried out in a 4.2 km{sup 2} area in the southern zone of the Los Azufres, Mich., geothermal field. There are seven production wells operating here and three abandoned wells. The average noise emission in the southern zone was 36.5 decibels (dB), regarded as the natural reading of environmental-noise emission. In the Christmas (valves) tree for operating production wells, the noise ranges from 70.9 to 91.7 dB, while in open discharging valves for steam-pipes, the noise can reach 118 dB. In Mexico the maximum permissible limit of noise on the periphery of a property is 68 dB in daytime and 65 dB at night. Based on measurements made at the periphery of lots where the geothermal wells are located, four out of seven production wells measured do not exceed the maximum allowable level, while the other three seem to exceed it. However no definite limits exist for the lots. It is recommended that the measurement points as indicated by the official standard in environmental matters be re-established, which will enable noise emissions by several wells that have exceeded the permissible limit, to actually fall within it.

En este artículo se plantea una metodología para determinar cómo un intervalo de cierta duración -en este caso, quince (15 minutos- para el muestreo del nivel de presión sonora es representativo para el período de una (1 hora, logrando de esta manera optimizar el uso de los sonómetros "fijos" y proponiendo una estrategia para reducir los costos en las mediciones de ruido ambiental y en general la elaboración de mapas de ruido.The managers of environmental noise measurements in environmental control agencies, or in general every person that work in this subject, have to think on the representativity of the unit measurement time interval, and how to evaluate it in order to get good quality results regarding the unit measurement time without increasing the measurement costs. A methodology for deciding if a certain measuring time interval -in this case, fifteen (15 minutes- is representative of noise pressure levels occurring during one hour, is proposed in this paper. This methodology allows to optimize the use of stationary sound level meters and to propose a strategy for reducing the costs of environmental noise measurements and of the designing of noise maps in general.

    ón del ruido producido al manosear el equipo.Uncontrolled experimental study. Aim: quantify the impact noise of the 23 incubators functioning in the intensive and intermediate care units of a public university hospital in Ribeirão Preto-SP. Methodology: measuring occurred during incubator manipulation in a careful and in a rough way, considering the impact noise generated by the various situations in which the incubator was manipulated. Results: In practically all manipulation situations in both the careful and the rough way, group B presented higher NPS, followed by group A and D. Group C demonstrated the lowest NPS during the different manipulation situations. Even careful manipulation generated a strong noise level, and NPS almost always doubled or tripled when the same situation was realized roughly. Careful manipulation, together with lower incubator use time, revealed to be effective in reducing the noise produced during equipment manipulation.

    The applicability of a light backscatter sensor with a large field of view was tested for on-line monitoring of coagulation and syneresis in a goat cheese (Murcia al Vino) manufactured under industrial conditions. Cheesemaking was carried out concurrently in a 12-L pilot vat and a 10,000-L industrial vat following the normal cheesemaking protocol. Cheese moisture, whey fat content, hardness, springiness, and adhesiveness were measured during syneresis. The results obtained show that cutting time is best predicted by considering the coagulation ratio at the inflection point and the percentage increase in the ratio during coagulation, with no need for the first derivative. The large field of view reflectance ratio provided good results for the prediction of moisture content, yield, hardness, springiness, and adhesiveness of the final cheese.

    Full Text Available The thermal spraying process is a surface treatment which does not adversely affect the base metal on which it is performed. The coatings obtained by HVOF thermal spray are employed in aeronautics, aerospace, and power generation industries. Alloys and coatings designed to resist oxidizing environments at high temperatures should be able to develop a surface oxide layer, which is thermodynamically stable, slowly growing, and adherent. MCrAlY type (M = Co, Ni or combination of both coatings are used in wear and corrosion applications but also provide protection against high temperature oxidation and corrosion attack in molten salts. In this investigation, CoNiCrAlY coatings were produced employing a HVOF DJH 2700 gun.

    Full Text Available La actividad basal del cerebro ha sido conceptualizada tradicionalmente como “ruido”. Sin embargo, el avance en los métodos de análisis de neuroimagen ha permitido descifrar patrones coherentes de actividad en este estado de ‘reposo’. Estos patrones, lejos de ser aleatorios, parecen corresponderse en parte con los sistemas cerebrales clásicos, lo que sugiere que nos encontramos ante un funcionamiento ‘por defecto’ de distintas redes cerebrales. Esta Función Cerebral por Defecto facilitaría nuestra adaptación al medio mediante una constante predicción y sincronización con el mismo.

    Full Text Available Con la entrada en vigencia de la Resolución 0627 de 2006, reglamentándose la altura de 4m sobre el nivel del piso como estrategia de medición para evaluar los niveles de ruido ambiental, se ha creado una gran controversia entre las entidades ambientales gubernamentales, los académicos y profesionales del sector, sobre las implicaciones económicas, logísticas y operativas para el desarrollo del trabajo de campo. Con el propósito de determinar si mediciones simultáneas de ruido urbano efectuadas a 1,5 m y 4 m representan o no la misma realidad sonora, se realizó un análisis estadístico a un conjunto de datos obtenidos en el marco de la construcción del mapa de ruido del municipio. Después de un análisis de los datos agrupados por punto, por jornada (diurna y nocturna y por tipo de día (hábil y no hábil, se infiere que no es posible afirmar la semejanza entre muestras de ruido tomadas a 1,5 m y 4 m de altura, no sólo por las diferencias numéricas, sino que representan realidades sonoras diferentes.

    Full Text Available Present design trends in automotive manufacture have shifted emphasis to alternative lightweight materials in order to achieve higher fuel efficiency and to bring down vehicle emission. Although some other joining techniques are more and more being used, spot welding still remains the primary joining method in automobile manufacturing so far. Spot welds for automotive applications should have a sufficiently large diameter, so that nugget pullout mode is the dominant failure mode. Interfacial mode is unacceptable due to its low load carrying and energy absorption capability. Strength tests with different static loading were performed in, to reveal the failure mechanisms for the lap-shear geometry and the cross-tension geometry. Based on the literature survey performed, venture into this work was amply motivated by the fact that a little research work has been conducted to joining of dissimilar materials like non ferrous to ferrous. Most of the research works concentrated on joining of different materials like steel to steel or aluminium alloy to aluminium alloy by resistance spot welding. In this work, an experimental study on the resistance spot weldability of aluminium alloy (Al 6063 and austenitic stainless steel (AISI304 sheets, which are lap joined by using a pedestal type resistance spot welding machine. Welding was conducted using a 45-deg truncated cone copper electrode with 10-mm face diameter. The weld nugget diameter, force estimation under lap shear test and T – peel test were investigated using digital type tensometer attached with capacitive displacement transducer (Mikrotech, Bangalore, Model: METM2000ER1. The results shows that joining of Al 6063 and AISI 304 thin sheets by RSW method are feasible for automotive structural joints where the loads are below 1000N act on them, it is observed that by increasing the spots per unit length, then the joint with standing strength to oppose failure is also increased linearly incase of

    An experimental study was carried out to determine the effect of strontium (Sr) on the characteristic of intermetallic phases, particularly the Al 5 FeSi phase which present morphology of platelets or needle-like. The results showed that within the range of variables studied, the modification process caused the disappearance of the needles and only occur the precipitation of phase α (chinese script-like). Refinement of the intermetallic phases occurs in conjunction with the refinement in grain size. Both parameters depend strongly on local cooling rate (T), temperature gradient (G) and apparent rate of solidification front (V). In the case of equiaxed structures the refinement of grain size and intermetallic occurs with increasing local cooling rate and temperature gradient and decrease the apparent rate of solidification front. In the case of columnar structures, refinement of grains and intermetallic requires the increase in values of the three variables indicated. Moreover, the addition of Sr resulted in the modification of silicon eutectic, as noted in others research works.

Los niveles de presión sonora se cuantificaron según Asociación Brasileña de Normas Técnicas, con uso de medidor de nivel de presión sonora. Los promedios se clasificaron según los niveles de conforto, incomodidad y daño auditivo propuestos por la Organización Panamericana de Salud. A las educadoras se les evaluó la voz: auto-evaluación con escala analógica visual, evaluación perceptivo-auditiva con escala GRBAS y análisis acústico con el programa Praat. Para análisis de asociación entre ruido y evaluación vocal, se utilizó estadística descriptiva y prueba de chi-cuadrado, con 10% de significancia debido al tamaño de la muestra. RESULTADOS: Las educadoras presentaban edades entre 21 y 56 años. El promedio de ruido fue 72,7dB, considerado daño 2. La auto-evaluación vocal de las profesionales presentó promedio de 5,1 en la escala, considerada alteración moderada. En la evaluación perceptivo-auditiva, 74% presentaron alteración vocal, principalmente ronquera; de estas, 52% fueron consideradas alteraciones leves. La mayor parte presentó frecuencia fundamental por debajo de lo esperado en la evaluación acústica. Promedios de jitter, shimmer y proporción armónico-ruido estaban alterados. Presencia de ruido entre los armónicos se asoció a alteración vocal. CONCLUSIONES: Hubo asociación entre presencia de ruido entre armónicos y alteración vocal, con elevados niveles de ruido. A pesar de que la mayoría de las educadoras presentaron voz alterada en grado reducido, la auto-evaluación mostró alteración moderada, probablemente por la dificultad de proyección.OBJECTIVE: To analyze the association between noise levels present in preschool institutions and vocal disorders among educators.

    Full Text Available The main contribution of this paper is the formulation of an alternative to experimental determination of loss factor and, consequently, to improve the predictions of airborne sound insulation for any type of monolithic or laminated glass. In addition, a review of the standards related to measurement of mechanical parameters of glass is carried out, with particular interest in laminated glass. Indeed, one of the problems that arise in the current context of building acoustics is to meet the requirements of facades airborne sound insulation of existing Building Technical Code (BTC. It is known that the blind and the hollow part of the facade should be distinguished. The weakest part regarding to airborne sound insulation is the empty one (consisting of glass, woodwork and other elements. Choosing an adequate woodwork makes the glass surface become the limiting factor. The Constructive Elements Catalog (CEC of the BTC, the UNE-EN 12758:2011 standard, as well as some, increasingly, data vendors provide information about airborne sound insulation for monolithic glass, laminated glass and double glazing. In the case of laminated glass, these data are limited only to those with a single intermediate layer, and also nonacoustic. Can therefore be said that there is a gap of knowledge in this regard. To obtain reliable predictions of airborne sound insulation of multilayer partitions, such as laminated glass, mechanical characteristics must be known, being loss factor one of the most important.

Áreas como la Biología de Sistemas o, más recientemente, la Biología Sintética, reciben una atención cada vez mayor por parte de los ingenieros. En particular, el modelado en estos ámbitos permite la generación de nuevas hipótesis contrastables experimentalmente, y de nuevas formas de intervención biológica, así como explicaciones más o menos mecanicistas de los resultados experimentales. Una aproximación basada en modelo requiere considerar la dinámica de las reacciones bioquímicas y su regulación. En la primera parte de este tutorial se introducen el modelado determinista y reducción de modelos de la clase de reacciones bioquímicas propias de la biología molecular celular.El ruido juega un papel crucial en la dinámica de los circuitos biológicos. En el área de control automático hay una larga tradición de modelado mediante ecuaciones diferenciales estocásticas lineales, bajo la hipótesis simplificadora de asumir que el ruido tiene una magnitud independiente de la del estado. Esta hipótesis no es válida en los circuitos biológicos. En la segunda parte del tutorial se describen los métodos de modelado estocástico más usados en biología molecular, con especial atención a denominada aproximación lineal del ruido.

    Full Text Available Los valores sociales son un elemento esencial para el análisis histórico de la actividad física y el deporte. El cambio del sistema de valores que significó el paso de la sociedad estamental a la sociedad de clases facilitó la práctica física y deportiva en el marco de un nuevo significado del cuerpo y de la disciplina social. La sociedad tradicional tenía su referente principal en la religión y en sus principios seculares del movimiento del cuerpo como hecho sujeto a discusión moral. Con la nueva sociedad surgida con la Revolución Industrial se abre una nueva concepción del cuerpo como objeto educativo para su orientación laboral. Aparece primero la gimnasia como una herramienta para la instrucción colectiva en la nueva disciplina del movimiento reglado del cuerpo. Después, se imponen los deportes ingleses que se basan en la estrategia de equipo y en el juego según reglas. En ambos casos, gimnasia y deporte responden a un nuevo núcleo de valores en los que la competencia, la unión y la superación son los referentes dominantes. A su vez, tales valores están ligados al espíritu nacionalista emergente en el siglo XIX. Así, el nacimiento de los Estados–Nación en Europa va en paralelo con la economía industrial y con una nueva concepción corporal que evoluciona desde la gimnasia hasta el deporte. En este artículo se analiza el caso de la modernización de España, indicando ejemplos ilustrativos del cambio en los valores de la actividad física practicada en el tránsito del siglo XIX al XX.--------------------------------------------------------------------------Social values are an essential feature for the historic analysis of physical activity and sport.

    Cooking is one of the most thermal-energy consuming processes in the food industry and development of devices that contribute to decrease the consumption of fossil fuel is a matter of great importance. This decreasing in consumption can both enlarge competitiveness in the enterprises of this sector and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and other toxic combustion by products such as, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides. A porous burner made of a bed of Al 2 O 3 particles coming from grinding residues and combined with ceramic foam of SiSiC has been evaluated respect to Liquefied Petroleum Gas combustion stability and thermal efficiency for cooking in food industry. The results showed that for specific heat input rate lower than 154 kW/m 2 , the upper and lower equivalence ratio on the stability limit follow approximately a linear trend, as well as the wide of the range of stability remains constant. But this trend is broken when higher heat input rate is applied. Also, every equivalence ratio for stable combustion was in the lean ratio and stoichiometric combustion values were not feasible because flashback occurred. Emissions of CO were in acceptable values lower than 25 ppm for specific heat input rate lower than 154 kW/m 2 but an important rising in the CO emissions could be seen when the burner worked at higher heat input rate due to a moderate lift-off and quenching on the surface of the burner. Thermal efficiency was calculated in two different working ways: the “radiation–convection” and “conduction”. Thermal efficiency in the “radiation–convection” was between 15.7% and 23.6%, which are lower than the average thermal efficiency of the conventional free-flame burner. But the “conduction” mode showed a significant advantage respect to free flame conventional burners, since it could improve the thermal efficiency between 7% and 14%. The improvement in efficiency and the possibility of interrupting the flow of fuel in a cyclical

El estudio exhaustivo de la zona, con análisis de las características geomorfológicas, condiciones climáticas y actividades económicas presentes y pasadas de la zona, ha permitido identificar las rutas de exposición más probables, y la identificación y caracterización de los peligros más relevantes que podrían afectar al agua de las captaciones en estudio. La metodología de la ASTSR se ha complementado con el uso de modelos para la estimación de peligros de contaminación de acuíferos (Modelo SIG, y revisión en bases de datos internacionales para la identificación de peligros químicos. Como resultado del estudio se ha identificado la existencia de dos acuíferos distintos que abastecen los 4 pozos del PIC, lo que supone un análisis diferenciado de riesgos potenciales. Asimismo se ha descartado la actividad agrícola como fuente de peligros pero no así la ganadera. Es preciso aumentar la frecuencia de control en relación a la PT-RSU de parámetros microbiológicos y químicos como el tetracloroeteno, otros compuestos orgánicos volátiles y metales pesados (As, Pb, Hg.

Services are taking the place that industrialization took for more than seventy years, currently adopting the leadership in the vision of the future of the postindustrial city. At the same time, natural and historical patrimonies are nowadays the main resources in order to revalue economic activities.

Se inició con una evaluación diagnóstica sobre el conocimiento de la normativa en materia de gestión de los residuos o desechos, dirigida a técnicos y profesores que realizan actividades en ocho laboratorios para la enseñanza de la Química. Se siguió con la selección de un procedimiento analítico, como caso estudio, para revisar y aplicar estrategias de reusar, reciclar y reducir la generación de los residuos. Se encontró un desconocimiento de la normativa ambiental, representada por el 73% de los encuestados y un escaso tratamiento de residuos. Se concluye que la extensión de aspectos ambientales en los procedimientos analíticos puede ayudar a prevenir la contaminación ambiental, a fortalecer aspectos toxicológicos, de seguridad y de prevención de riesgos laborales.

    Full Text Available This essay analyzes one of the main arguments put forward by the tobacco industry to support the absence of liability for damages caused by tobacco addiction: the free will of the smoker. Through the contribution of other sciences, it seeks to demonstrate how young people, targeted audience of marketing campaigns of the tobacco industry, were extremely vulnerable to tobacco industry maneuvers to attract them to their products. It also demonstrates the addictive effects of nicotine and how it practically neutralizes the ability of an adult deciding to stop the addiction. At the end, it sustains the relativization of the principle of free will.

    Full Text Available Given that the experimental signals obtained in an electrochemical noise measurement, ENM, are recorded over a discrete time period, the most direct way of analising them will be in the time domain resorting to statistical methods. These can be classified into two groups according to use: those which attempt to quantify the degree of the corrosion process (standard deviations, statistical power; and those which attempt to provide information on the corrosion mechanism (based on the assumption that the shape of the time records is a reflection of itself. Among the later the use of the average, the skewness and the kurtosis of the signals or the pitting index can be pointed out as being able to reflect the changes in the corrosion mechanism. Noise resistance stands out above all these parameters. In this work has undertaken the statistical treatment of ENM data obtained by subjecting aluminium to three electrolytes that provoke several types of corrosion in it: passivity, pitting corrosion and generalized corrosion.

    En la mayoría de los experimentos sobre ruido electroquímico, ENM (Electrochemical Noise Measurement, las señales experimentales se registran durante períodos de tiempo discretos. Resulta habitual, por ello, que en las publicaciones sobre esta técnica, la forma más directa de analizar esos datos consiste en acudir a métodos estadísticos en el dominio temporal. Estos métodos pueden ser clasificados, según su utilidad, en dos grupos: aquellos que pretenden cuantificar la magnitud del proceso de corrosión (desviaciones estándar, potencia estadística, etc. y los que tratan de extraer información sobre el mecanismo del proceso corrosivo en sí mismo, los cuales se basan, en su mayoría, en la suposición de que la forma de los registros temporales son un reflejo del comportamiento de la interfase metal electrólito. Entre estos últimos, se pueden destacar el valor medio, el sesgo, la curtosis y el índice de picaduras

    Fe(II)/γ-Al2O3 powders synthesized using the dipping method were produced from a mixed aqueous solution containing aluminium oxide (γ-Al2O3) and iron(II)-precursor (FeSO4), and used for photo-Fenton degradation of phthalocyanine dyes (PCS) under ultraviolet (UV) irradiation in an up-flow fluidized bed. The catalysts were characterized by XRD, ESCA, BET, EDS and SEM. The results showed that Fe(2+) ion was compounded on the γ-Al2O3 carrier. The effects of different reaction parameters such as catalyst activity, dosage and solution pH on the decolorization of PCS were assessed. Results indicated that maximum decolorization (more than 95%) of PCS occurred with 20 wt% Fe(II)/γ-Al2O3 catalyst (dosage of 60 g/L) using a combination of UV irradiation and heterogeneous Fenton system. The degradation efficiency of PCS increases as pH decreases, exhibiting a maximum efficiency at pH 3.5. The recycled catalyst was capable of repeating three runs without a significant decrease in treatment efficiency, and this demonstrated the stability and reusability of catalyst.

    The use of industrial waste [mill scale (MS), red mud (RM), Al-dross (AD)] as fluxing agents in the sulfurization of Fe-Ni-Cu-Co alloy to matte (Fe-Ni-Cu-Co-S) by carbothermic reduction of CaSO4 was investigated at 1673 K (1400 °C). The sulfurization efficiency (SE) was 76 (± 2) pct at RM or AD single fluxing. However, SE drastically increased to approximately 89 pct at a `5AD + 5MS' combination, which was equivalent to reagent-grade chemical `5Al2O3 + 5Fe2O3' fluxing (SE = 88 pct). The present results can be used to improve the cost-effective recovery of rare metals (Ni and Co) from deep sea manganese nodules.

    Perovskite-type ceramic oxides or their derivatives are used for applications in high technology because of their enormous range of physic-chemical properties with little change in structural characteristics. In this paper we report manufacture ceramic components of a new ceramic Ca 2 AlWO 5,5 by thermo-mechanical process. Stoichiometric amounts of chemical constituents with high degree of purity, were homogenized using a ball mill and high purity alumina balls, compacted by uniaxial pressing and annealed at 1200 deg C for 48 hours. The structural characterization studied by x-ray diffraction that this material has a typical complex ordered cubic perovskite structure. For the study the stability of these ceramics in crude petroleum circular discs of 20 mm diameter and 2 mm thickness were produced and sintering. These discs were submerged in crude petroleum for 15, 30 and 45 days and were examined at each stage by X-ray diffraction, optical microscopy and hardness testing and these results show that Ca 2 AlWO 5,5 are stable in crude petroleum environment.

    Industrial gas companies have fought hard to boost sales and hold margins in the tough economic climate, and investments are well down from their 1989-'91 peak. But 'our industry is still very strong long term' says Alain Joly, CEO of industry leader L'Air Liquide (AL). By 1994, if a European and Japanese recovery follows through on one in the U.S., 'we could see major [investment] commitments starting again,' he says. 'Noncryogenic production technology is lowering the cost of gas-making possible new applications, oxygen is getting plenty of attention in the environmental area, and hydrogen also fits into the environmental thrust,' says Bob Lovett, executive v.p./gases and equipment with Air Products ampersand Chemicals (AP). Through the 1990's, 'Industrial gases could grow even faster than in the past decade,' he says. Virtually a new generation of new gases applications should become reality by the mid-1990s, says John Campbell, of industry consultants J.R. Campbell ampersand Associates (Lexington, MA). Big new oxygen volumes will be required for powder coal injection in blast furnaces-boosting a steel mill's requirement as much as 40% and coal gasification/combined cycle (CGCC). Increased oil refinery hydroprocessing needs promise hydrogen requirements

    Synopsis Genes linked to ALS susceptibility are being identified at an increasing rate owing to advances in molecular genetic technology. Genetic mechanisms in ALS pathogenesis appear to exert major effects in ~10% of patients, but genetic factors at some level may be important components of disease risk in most ALS patients. Identification of gene variants associated with ALS has informed concepts of the pathogenesis of ALS, aided the identification of therapeutic targets, facilitated research to develop new ALS biomarkers, and supported the establishment of clinical diagnostic tests for ALS-linked genes. Translation of this knowledge to ALS therapy development is ongoing. PMID:26515623

    A discussion over the feasibility of implementing an unbalanced economic growth strategy is presented. With the proposed sectorial classification, it is demonstrated that the Mexican economy has an important heterogeneous and segmented growth pattern. The input-output matrix and the developed exercises, for the year 2003, reflect that hydrocarbons and the export maquiladora industry do not generate meaningful productive linkages. With the passive optimistic economic growth scenario, towards the end of 2015, between 3.8 and 5.6 million additional people with a self-employed, unemployed or emigrant status will be generated. A set of sectorial and aggregated policies with a post-keynesian-structural nature are proposed in order to improve the productive linkages and the labor market. [Spanish] Se presenta una discusion sobre la viabilidad de implantar una estrategia de crecimiento economico desbalanceado. Se demuestra que con la clasificacion sectorial propuesta, la economia mexicana tiene un patron de crecimiento marcadamente heterogeneo y segmentado. La matriz insumo-producto y los ejercicios desarrollados para el 2003 reflejan que los hidrocarburos y la industria maquiladora de exportacion no generan encadenamientos productivos significativos. En el escenario pasivo optimista de crecimiento economico, hacia finales de 2015, se generarian entre 3.8 y 5.6 millones de personas adicionales de autoempleados, desempleados o emigrantes.

    On a company ground in Vorchdorf, Austria, from the 23{sup rd} to 26{sup th} of July 1996 an air-sparging experiment has been carried out as a supporting measure to a running redevelopment of an LCKW-contamination case. On this occasion compressed air, from which the oil had been extracted, was blown into the contaminated aquifer through a well with a maximum excess pressure of 0,6 MPa. The blowing-in of compressed air caused a mobilisation of the harmful substances in the ground water and the soil air. As a result circa 2,7 kg LCKW could be removed from the underground through neighbouring ground water and soil air wells. For the observed period of time this meant a tripling of the rate of discharge. On the basis of the obtained data we suggested a routine interval of blowing in compressed air into the well 1516. A blowing-in of compressed air into the highly contaminated wells 1617 and 1625 can not be realised until the construction of upstream situated injection wells, because of the danger of an uncontrollable spread of the harmful substances.

    Full Text Available Resumen: En este artículo se presenta un algoritmo para la detección de elipses en imágenes, cuyo objetivo es el cálculo d e la posición 3D de una característica circular en una aplicación robótica. El algoritmo emplea un procedimiento estocástico RANSAC cuya eficiencia ha sido mejorada. El muestreo aleatorio ha sido sustituido por un muestreo guiado sobre las cadenas de contorno de la imagen, que son ordenadas de acuerdo a un criterio de probabilidad de formar parte de la elipse buscada. Esta estrategia disminuye notablemente la cantidad de muestras necesarias, permitiendo que el algoritmo sea adecuado para tiempo real. Abstract: In this paper, we present a ellipse detection algorithm developed to measure the 3-D position of a circular feature in a robotic application. The algorithm uses a RANSAC stochastic procedure whose efficiency has been significantly improved, substituting the random sampling with a guided sampling on the curve segments in the image. The contours of the image are first split analyzing their curvature. Then the curve segments are sorted according to their likelihood to be part of the ellipse. We have used the length as a prior indicator of this likelihood. The RANSAC algorithm starts considering only the longer curve segments whilst shorter curve segments are progressively incorporated. This strategy notably diminishes the amount of samples needed and makes the algorithm suitable for real time.

    other molecules. This particular hydrophilicity is due to the presence of active adsorption centers on the surface of sepiolite. Taking into account this mineral is used as absorbent and as reinforcement in plastics, the highest length/diameter ratio is needed in order to maximize properties. Then, fiber disaggregation would increase its application field and the added value of this untapped mineral in Argentina. In this work, different methods as liofilization, sonication and acid leaching are explored, focusing in the optimization of disaggregation and purification of the fibers. The comparative analysis was made through the sepiolite characterization before and after each treatment by electronic and optical microscopy, x ray diffraction, infrared spectroscopy and thermal analysis. The results obtained from the acid leaching describe it as the better treatment respect to the sepiolite purification due to carbonates elimination. The sonication allows a particular disaggregation, leading to a gel structure development, product of the high entanglement of nanofibers which retain water molecules inside the network. In the case of the liofilization, it produces a substantial morphological variation of the fibers respect to their disaggregation. This method is the best for conserving the initial length of the fibers. These results allow inferring that the sepiolite can be easily processed and be used in different industries in our country with a high added value, replacing its importation.

    AlN/Al dual protective coatings were prepared on NdFeB by DC magnetron sputtering in a home-made industrial apparatus. Comparing with Al coating, AlN/Al coatings have a denser structure of an outmost AlN amorphous layer following an inner Al columnar crystal layer. The coatings and NdFeB substrate combine well, and moreover, there is occurrence of metallurgy bonding in the interface layer. Both Al and AlN/Al coatings have a good protective ability to NdFeB. Especially, the corrosion resistance of AlN/Al coated NdFeB is improved largely. AlN/Al and Al protective coatings not only do not deteriorate the magnetic properties of NdFeB, but contribute to their slight increase.

    Full Text Available In this paper are presented the results of some desulphurization trials in the ladle carried out at industrial scale for steels with low carbon, low alloyed and aluminum killed, using basic slag and argon bubbling. The main variables of treatment have been established on the basis of a thermodynamic model that includes parameters as sulphur capacity of the slag, optical basicity of oxides and of the slags, the activities of oxides in the slags and activities of elements in the liquid steel. Sulphur contents at the end of treatment, are close to the values predicted by the model. Low sulfur levels achieved in the process, facilitate the subsequent treatment with calcium to modify the inclusions. Finally an evaluation is presented concerning the effects resulting from the reoxidation of the melt on the main indicators, showing the efficiency of the applied treatment for desulphurization.En este trabajo se presentan los resultados de algunos ensayos de desulfuración en cuchara, llevados a cabo a escala industrial, para aceros con bajo contenido en carbono, de baja aleación y calmados con aluminio, utilizando escorias basicás y corriente de argón. Las principales variables del tratamiento se han establecido sobre la base de un modelo termodinámico que incluye parámetros como la capacitad de captación de azufre por las escorias, la basicidad óptica de los óxidos y de las escorias , las actividades de los óxidos en las escorias y las actividades de los elementos en el acero liquido. Los contenidos de azufre al final de tratamiento están cerca de los valores predichos por el modelo. Los bajos niveles de azufre alcanzados en el proceso, facilitan el posterior tratamiento con calcio para modificar las inclusiones. Se presenta, finalmente, una evaluación de los efectos derivados de la reoxidación del fundido sobre los principales indicadores que muestran la eficiencia del tratamiento de desulfuración aplicado.

Argumenta que la base de este deslice cultural se debió al capitalismo auditivo, la posibilidad de compra-venta de bienes culturales lo que permitió su auto-sustentabilidad. No obstante, debido a su origen extranjero, el rock interactuó, retó y puso a la defensiva identidades nacionales patrocinadas por el estado en la primera mitad del siglo veinte, en particular en México. En varias ocasiones, esta defensiva cultural se convirtió en una lucha política de represión cultural directa en varios países latinoamericanos. No obstante, en los 80’s el rock salió de su clandestinidad, y las clases bajas comenzaron a usar esta música como plataforma de expresión de su realidad injusta, convirtiendo al rock en una demanda política, pasando así de las clases altas hasta la clase baja. Con la llegada de MTV en 1993, las fronteras culturales nacionales se colapsaron, y los espacios geográficos se expandieron al incluir Brasil, Miami y España. Así, el medio cultural que en los 50’s pertenecía a la clase alta y en los 70’s puso a la defensiva a varios gobiernos, en los 90’s se convierta en el medio por la cual se cartografiaba una nueva comunidad iberoamericana en el imaginario colectivo de los jóvenes.

    Full Text Available In this article the possibility of using waste from the petrochemical industry,as partial replacement of Portland cement is studied, evaluating the presenceof contaminants in the waste and the encapsulation, once it is confined on the cement. This has been done, in order to find a use to this residue without cause damage to the environment. This residue, called spent fluid catalytic cracking catalyst (FCC, is mainly formed by a type Y zeolite, which is dispersing in an inorganic oxides matrix. The toxicity characteristic leaching proceeding was applied, in mortars adding with 20% of FCC as Portland cement replacement. The results showed that the residue does not represent a problem from the point of view of the leaching of elements, such as As, Pb, Zn, Cr, and La, which were below to the permissible limits. Additionally, the pozzolanic activity of FCC was evaluated according to ASTM C311, where the efficiency of the residue as pozzolanic addition is demonstrated. With the results the importance of reusing a residue of the petrochemical industry is emphasized, that decreases the amount of cement to be used and improves the mechanical resistance of the materials containing it.En el presente artículo se estudia la posibilidad de utilizar un residuo de la industria petroquímica, como sustitución parcial del cemento Portland, evaluando la presencia de elementos contaminantes en el residuo y su encapsulación, una vez se haya confinado con el cemento.

    Full Text Available Abstract Definition of the disease AL amyloidosis results from extra-cellular deposition of fibril-forming monoclonal immunoglobulin (Ig light chains (LC (most commonly of lambda isotype usually secreted by a small plasma cell clone. Most patients have evidence of isolated monoclonal gammopathy or smoldering myeloma, and the occurrence of AL amyloidosis in patients with symptomatic multiple myeloma or other B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders is unusual. The key event in the development of AL amyloidosis is the change in the secondary or tertiary structure of an abnormal monoclonal LC, which results in instable conformation. This conformational change is responsible for abnormal folding of the LC, rich in β leaves, which assemble into monomers that stack together to form amyloid fibrils. Epidemiology AL amyloidosis is the most common type of systemic amyloidois in developed countries with an estimated incidence of 9 cases/million inhabitant/year. The average age of diagnosed patients is 65 years and less than 10% of patients are under 50. Clinical description The clinical presentation is protean, because of the wide number of tissues or organs that may be affected. The most common presenting symptoms are asthenia and dyspnoea, which are poorly specific and may account for delayed diagnosis. Renal manifestations are the most frequent, affecting two thirds of patients at presentation. They are characterized by heavy proteinuria, with nephrotic syndrome and impaired renal function in half of the patients. Heart involvement, which is present at diagnosis in more than 50% of patients, leading to restrictive cardiopathy, is the most serious complication and engages prognosis. Diagnostic methods The diagnosis relies on pathological examination of an involved site showing Congo red-positive amyloid deposits, with typical apple-green birefringence under polarized light, that stain positive with an anti-LC antibody by immunohistochemistry and

    Full Text Available In this work a study on the application of bio-inspired strategies for optimization to Fault Diagnosis in industrial systems is presented. The principal aim is to establish a basis for the development of new and viable model-based Fault Diagnosis Methods which improve some difficulties that the current methods cannot avoid. These difficulties are related mainly with fault sensitivity and robustness to external disturbances. In this study, there have been considered the Differential Evolution and the Ant Colony Optimization algorithms. This application is illustrated using simulated data of the Two tanks system benchmark. In order to analyze the advantages of these algorithms to obtain a diagnosis which needs to be sensitive to faults and robust to external disturbances, some experiments with incipient faults and noisy data have been simulated. The results indicate that the proposed approach, basically the combination of the two algorithms, characterizes a promising methodology for Fault Diagnosis.En el presente trabajo se presenta un estudio sobre la aplicación de estrategias bioinspiradas para la optimización al diagnóstico de fallos en sistemas industriales. El objetivo principal es establecer una base para el desarrollo de nuevos y viables métodos de diagnóstico de fallos basados en modelos que permitan mejorar las dificultades de los métodos actuales. Estas dificultades están relacionadas, fundamentalmente, con la sensibilidad ante la presencia de fallos y la robustez ante perturbaciones externas. En el estudio se consideraron los algoritmos Evolución Diferencial y Optimización por Colonia de Hormigas. La efectividad de la propuesta es analizada mediante experimentos con el conocido problema de prueba de los dos tanques. Los experimentos consideraron presencia de ruido en la información y fallos incipientes de manera que fuera posible analizar las ventajas de la propuesta en cuanto a diagnóstico robusto y sensible.

    con asbestos provenientes de Carandaí, sureste de Brasil, atendidos en el Centro de Referencia Estatal de Salud del Trabajador de Minas Gerais en 2004-2005. Los extrabajadores fueron sometidos a anamnesis clínico-ocupacional, radiografía de tórax y espirometría. Fue creado un escore de exposición que multiplicado por la duración, originó un índice de exposición acumulativa al talco. Para testar la asociación del índice de exposición acumulativa con la presencia de alteraciones radiológicas, sugestivas de neumoconiosis e/o alteraciones pleurales, fue ajustado un modelo de regresión logística exacta. RESULTADOS: Todos los extrabajadores eran hombres, con promedio de edad de 48,2 años. En las radiografías de tórax fueron encontradas alteraciones pleurales en tres de ellos, opacidades parenquimatosas compatibles con neumoconiosis en uno y sospecha en seis. Alteraciones espirométricas ocurrieron en tres. La regresión logística indicó odds ratio de 1,059 (IC 95%:1,012;1,125 para el índice acumulado, es decir, cada unidad en el índice resulta en un aumento de 5,9% en el chance de presentar alteración radiológica compatible o con sospecha de neumoconiosis.

    Industrial ecology addresses issues that will impact future production, use, and disposal technologies; proper use of the concept should reduce significantly the resources devoted to potential remediation in the future. This cradle-to-reincarnation production philosophy includes industrial processes that are environmentally sound and products that are environmentally safe during use and economically recyclable after use without adverse impact on the environment or on the net cost to society. This will require an industry-university-government round table to set the strategy and agenda for progress. PMID:11607254

MATERIAL Y MÉTODOS. Se realizó un estudio de cohorte a 725 mujeres empleadas en una planta japonesa y una estadunidense, entre enero de 1992 y marzo de 1994. La muestra se estratificó en dos intervalos de tiempo ­30 y >30 días laborados. Se efectuó un seguimiento de las mujeres hasta su renuncia o final del periodo de observación, mediante la recolección de información sobre variables de salud, sociales y ocupacionales de diversas fuentes de registro obtenidas de su centro de trabajo. Los motivos de renuncia y la confiabilidad de los datos obtenidos de los registros se estudiaron por medio de entrevistas de seguimiento realizadas a 46% (n= 148 de las trabajadoras que renunciaron y fueron localizadas aproximadamente 12 meses (desviación estándar= 6.7 después de su renuncia. RESULTADOS. La probabilidad acumulativa de renunciar al trabajo fue de 67% en el primer año y de 81% en el segundo. La ausencia de antecedentes laborales previos, turno diurno y nacionalidad de la compañía, resultaron factores predictivos para la renuncia al empleo durante los primeros 30 días. Tabaquismo, antecedentes quirúrgicos y haberse incapacitado por enfermedad general, después de controlar por otras variables, actuaron como factores predictivos para la renuncia posterior a 30 días. En contraposición, la tasa de renuncia posterior a 30 días resultó menor para mujeres con enfermedades crónicas. CONCLUSIONES. La renuncia al empleo en las maquiladoras es elevada y selectiva; en tanto que los factores ocupacionales se asociaron con la renuncia temprana, los relacionados con la salud fueron mejores factores predictivos para la renuncia posterior a los primeros 30 días.OBJECTIVE.

    Chromates are one of the most commonly used compounds in anti corrosive protection systems because of its excellent rate efficiency/cost. In the case of aluminium alloys, these compounds are employed as inhibitors as well as in the anticorrosive pretreatments to develop protective films. However, chromates are highly toxic and its use involves a high risk for health and environment. Consequently, in the last years intensive efforts have been achieved in the surface treatment industry to find ecological alternatives to this kind of compounds. In this work, the main alternatives proposed in literature to substitute chromates in the surface treatments of aluminium alloys are reviewed. To begin with, the role of chromates in these systems and their environmental consequences has been briefly reviewed. (Author) 16 refs.

    The industrial application of radiochemistry is summarized, mainly in regard to the application of tracers and activation analysis. Changes in the utilization of radioisotopes in Japan are quoted according to the statistics of the Japan Information Center of Science and Technology (JICST) and reports of the Japan Isotope Conference since 1956. In order to clarify the application of industrial tracers, especially physical tracers in the manufacturing process, serial changes in the concentration of radioactive tracers retained in a bath and in Hg in a soda factory were determined. A radiorelease method used for analysis of exhaust fumes from automobiles is introduced and purification of Al by means by activation analysis, which is used to analyze extremely small amounts of impurities in highly pure materials, is described. Also, application of 252 Cf for activation analysis and its legal intricacies are discussed. (Namekawa, K.)

    Perovskite-type ceramic oxides or their derivatives are used for applications in high technology because of their enormous range of physic-chemical properties with little change in structural characteristics. In this paper we report manufacture ceramic components of a new ceramic Ca{sub 2}AlWO{sub 5,5} by thermo-mechanical process. Stoichiometric amounts of chemical constituents with high degree of purity, were homogenized using a ball mill and high purity alumina balls, compacted by uniaxial pressing and annealed at 1200 deg C for 48 hours. The structural characterization studied by x-ray diffraction that this material has a typical complex ordered cubic perovskite structure. For the study the stability of these ceramics in crude petroleum circular discs of 20 mm diameter and 2 mm thickness were produced and sintering. These discs were submerged in crude petroleum for 15, 30 and 45 days and were examined at each stage by X-ray diffraction, optical microscopy and hardness testing and these results show that Ca{sub 2}AlWO{sub 5,5} are stable in crude petroleum environment.

Con la finalidad de valorar de forma objetiva el efecto real que la recuperación de una vieja industria tiene sobre la revitalización de un entorno, y tomando como base la antigua fábrica de electricidad de Mediodía, se lleva a cabo un estudio teórico-práctico de las variables que influyen tanto en el diseño del edificio en si mismo como en el espacio urbano resultante de tal intervención. El análisis de estos parámetros proporciona un punto de partida que permite concatenar y expandir un proceso que acaba delimitando su verdadera área física de influencia y las repercusiones que de ello se derivan para el ámbito público. Con el fin de evitar la paradoja de rehabilitar recintos que generen a su alrededor zonas desvitalizadas, y partiendo de la premisa de considerar la integración física (construir en contexto como punto clave para la verdadera regeneración de la zona, se asientan las bases para la implantación de políticas enfocadas hacia la dinamización en el ámbito local.

  15. Industrial radiography

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    1992-01-01

    Industrial radiography is a non-destructive testing (NDT) method which allows components to be examined for flaws without interfering with their usefulness. It is one of a number of inspection methods which are commonly used in industry to control the quality of manufactured products and to monitor their performance in service. Because of its involvement in organizing training courses in all the common NDT methods in regional projects in Asia and the Pacific and Latin America and the Caribbean and in many country programmes, the Agency is aware of the importance of standardizing as far as possible the syllabi and training course notes used by the many experts who are involved in presenting the training courses. IAEA-TECDOC-628 ''Training Guidelines in Non-destructive Testing'' presents syllabi which were developed by an Agency executed UNDP project in Latin America and the Caribbean taking into account the developmental work done by the International Committee for Non-destructive Testing. Experience gained from using the radiography syllabi from TECDOC-628 at national and regional radiography training courses in the Agency executed UNDP project in Asia and the Pacific (RAS/86/073) showed that some guidance needed to be given to radiography experts engaged in teaching at these courses on the material which should be covered. The IAEA/UNDP Asia and Pacific Project National NDT Coordinators therefore undertook to prepare Radiography Training Course Notes which could be used by experts to prepare lectures for Level 1,2 and 3 radiography personnel. The notes have been expanded to cover most topics in a more complete manner than that possible at a Level 1, 2 or 3 training course and can now be used as source material for NDT personnel interested in expanding their knowledge of radiography.

    Full Text Available Resumen: Se presenta el diseño de un control tolerante a fallas (CTF activo aplicado al modelo de una bicicleta sin conductor con representación Lineal de Parámetros Variables en el tiempo (LPV polinomial, afectado por fallas aditivas en los sensores y ruido de medición. Dentro del CTF, el sistema de diagnóstico de fallas opera en base a las estimaciones de un observador de fallas, el cual genera el aislamiento de dichas fallas. Los algoritmos propuestos, considerados como las principales aportaciones del trabajo, logran estimaciones de fallas y variables de estado libres de ruido, con el objetivo de generar indicadores de falla y ley de control, respectivamente. La tolerancia a fallas del sistema se consigue a través de un conjunto de observadores. Los resultados se presentan en simulación de on utilizando el modelo LPV de una bicicleta sin conductor, considerando un controlador para la estabilización de la postura vertical a lo largo de su movimiento traslacional y su velocidad como parámetro variable. Abstract: This paper presents an Active Fault Tolerant Control design applied to a riderless bicycle LPV model affected by additive sensor fault and measurement noise. Within the Active Fault Tolerant Control, the detection and diagnostic system is based on the estimations computed by a fault observer, used to determine a fault occurrence. The proposed algorithms, considered as the main contributions in this work, achieves noise-free estimations for the faults and state, in order to compute the fault indicator and control law, respectively. The fault tolerance of the system is guaranteed through the fault accommodation based on a set of observers. The results have been corroborated using a riderless bicycle LPV model, with a controller that aims at keeping it stood-up along its translation motion.

    Wettability and interfacial interaction of the Ta2O5/Cu-Al system were studied. Pure Cu does not wet the Ta2O5 substrate, and improved spreading is achieved when relatively a high fraction of the active element (~40 at.% Al) was added. The Al2O3 and AlTaO4 phases were observed at the Ta2O5/Cu-Al interface. A thermodynamic evaluation allowed us to suggest that the lack of wetting bellow 40 at.% Al is due to the presence of a native oxide, which covers the drop. The conditions of the native oxide decomposition and the formation of the volatile Al2O suboxide strongly depend on the vacuum level during sessile drop experiments and the composition of the Cu-Al alloy. In our case, Al contents greater than 40% provides thermodynamic conditions for the formation of Al2O (as a result of Al reaction with Al2O3) and the drop spreading. It was suggested that the final contact angle in the Ta2O5/Cu-Al system (50°) is determined by Ta adsorption on the newly formed alumina interlayer.

    In all industry type the health costs generated by the noise are high, because the noise can cause nuisance and to harm the capacity to work when causing tension and to perturb the concentration, and in more severe cases to reach to lose the sense of the hearing in the long term. The noise levels in the industry have been designated for the different types of use like residential, commercial, and industrial and silence areas. The noise can cause accidents when obstructing the communications and alarm signs. For this reason the noise should be controlled and mitigated, at a low level as reasonably is possible, taking into account that the noise is an acoustic contamination. The present study determines a bases line of the environmental noise levels in a nuclear power plant BWR-5 as Laguna Verde, (like reference) to be able to determine and to give pursuit to the possible solutions to eliminate or to limit the noise level in the different job areas. The noise levels were registered with a meter of integrative noise level (sonometer) and areas of noise exposure levels mapping the general areas in the buildings were established, being the registered maximum level of 96.94 dba in the building of the Reactor-elevation 0.65 m under the operation conditions of Extended Power Up rate (EPU) of 120% PTN. Knowing that the exposition to noises and the noise dose in the job place can influence in the health and in the safety of the workers, are extensive topics that they should be analyzed for separate as they are: to) the effects in the health of the exposure to the noise, b) how measuring the noise, c) the methods and technologies to combat and to control the noise in the industry by part of engineering area and d) the function of the industrial safety bodies as delegates of the health and safety in the task against the noise in the job.

    Sich kontinuierlich verändernde Rahmenbedingungen, wie beispielsweise eine steigende Variantenvielfalt, verkürzte Produktlebenszyklen sowie Kundenforderungen nach höherer Qualität, kürzeren Lieferzeiten und geringeren Kosten, fordern von produzierenden Unternehmen eine stetige Anpassung der Prozesse, der Organisation und der Strukturen. Seit den 90er Jahren versuchen immer mehr deutsche Unternehmen diesen veränderten Anforderungen mit der Einführung eines Ganzheitlichen Produktionssystems (GPS) zu begegnen. Ganzheitliche Produktionssysteme sind dabei in ihren Grundlagen an das Toyota Produktionssystem angelehnt, vereinigen aber auch weitere Methoden zu einem unternehmensspezifischen Regelwerk. Im Rahmen des langfristigen Trends zu unternehmensindividuellen Produktionssystemen wird sowohl in der Industrie als auch in der Forschung intensiv über das Toyota Produktionssystem, Lean Production, Lean Management und Ganzheitliche Produktionssysteme diskutiert, werden Konzepte zu Implementierung und Betrieb erstellt und die Wirtschaftlichkeit untersucht.

Ökonomie der Erhebung, Vergleichbarkeit und die Möglichkeit, Einsicht in Praxisbereiche und historisch-biografische Dimensionen zu erhalten, die der direkten Beobachtung kaum zugänglich sind, machen seine Attraktivität aus. Zugleich mehren sich Kritiken, die seine Leistungsfähigkeit problematisieren, indem sie auf die begrenzte Reichweite der Explikationsfähigkeiten der Befragten, die Reaktivität der Erhebung oder die Differenz zwischen Handeln und dem Bericht über Handeln verweisen. Im Beitrag wird zwischen Ansätzen, die das Interview als Text, und solchen, die es als Interaktion verstehen, unterschieden. Nach dem Text-Verständnis werden Interviews unter inhaltlichen Gesichtspunkten analysiert und als Zugang zu einer vorgängigen sozialen oder psychischen Wirklichkeit angesehen. Das Interaktions-Verständnis versteht Interviews dagegen als situierte Praxis, in welcher im Hier und Jetzt von InterviewerInnen und Befragten gemeinsam soziale Sinnstrukturen hergestellt werden. Anhand ubiquitärer Phänomene der Interviewinteraktion – Fragen, Antworten und die Selbstpositionierung von InterviewerInnen und Befragten – werden Praktiken des interaktiv-performativen Handelns im Interview dargestellt. Ihre Relevanz für die Interviewkonstitution und ihre Erkenntnispotenziale für die Interviewauswertung werden aufgezeigt. Es wird dafür plädiert, die interaktive Konstitutionsweise von Interviews empirisch zu erforschen und methodisch konsequent zu berücksichtigen.

    AlTiC master alloys are a new grain refiner type to produce an equiaxed grain structure of cast extrusion and rolling ingots. These master alloys contain Ti carbides which act as nucleants of the {alpha} solid solution during solidification. The TiC content is lower than the TiB{sub 2} content of the industrial proved AlTiB master alloys. Benefits of the AlTiC master alloys are the low agglomeration tendency of the Ti carbides in the melt and that no Zr poisoning takes place. Despite of the low Ti carbide content the grain refinement performance can be very efficient, if low melt temperatures during casting will be used and as result of this a sufficient constitutional supercooling at the solidification front is achieved.

    the supply chains. In the universe of 400 manufacturing companies located in the state of Minas Gerais, 101 were selected as they had a retail account for more than 60% of their sales, which was analyzed as to the desired constructs and attributed evaluation. In general, industrial shippers seem to minimize the importance of logistics in the retail service, giving the transport merely operational functions and not strategic ones. They fail to aggregate the value of logistics to their products and services. The results forwarded to specific management issues relevant such as the relationship between orders fulfillment and problems of internal processes, structure of distribution channels, logistics networks and decisions about to internalizing/outsourcing logistics services.RESUMENEn el segmento de la distribución, las actividades logísticas se perciben más fácilmente como generadoras de valor. Entre ellas, el transporte tiene gran significado. Así, este estudio tuvo por objetivo analizar la gestión del transporte en las empresas industriales que trabajan con ventas al por menor. La motivación de los estudios se debe a que, en la literatura hay evidencias de que, la forma de gestionar el transporte en términos de atributos del servicio es diferente según el cliente; como también en lo referente al formato de la demanda de servicios de transporte y sus especificidades para atender segmentos de la cadena de suministro. Entre 400 empresas industriales instaladas en el estado de Minas Gerais, se seleccionaron 101, cuyas ventas al por menor correspondían a más del 60% de las ventas, se realizaron análisis de los constructos deseados y evaluación de atributo. En general, los embarcadores industriales parecen minimizar la importancia de la logística en los servicios al por menor y atribuyen al transporte funciones meramente operacionales, o sea, no estratégicas. Por lo tanto, dejan de agregar el valor de la logística a sus productos y servicios. Los

    Full Text Available Kuwait as had a considerable increase both in income and in population over the past few years. Its climate is hot and dry and it has a very low rainfall. Hence it is particularly important for this country to have a steady supply of water and electricity. To meet this need, large power stations have been built. Power station A is one of the various sources which provide Kuwait with electric power. It has four turboalternator units. Inside the building, a system of airconditioning has been developed, at such pressure and air speed that it will counteract outer climatic conditions and prevent the entry of sand particles into the power station during the frequent sandstorms. The external appearance of the power station has been carefully studied in order to bring it as much as possible into harmony with the surrounding buildings. The outline is audacious and irregular, seeking to obtain a variety of profiles and light and shade effects. It creates an impression that is reminiscent of the local mud structures, of simple and primitive shape, broken and rounded by the prolonged action of weather. Inside, the colour schemes are cool and relaxing whilst on the outside only those parts have been painted which are not likely to suffer the full effect of the sun. The overall effect of this building is pleasing, well in accordance with its strictly industrial function, and it is not lacking in many design refinement to cater for the sensibility of the staff that is to work in it for many hours every day, such at the balcony overlooking the sea, the pond and the garden zone round the entrance.Kuwait, Estado independiente situado al noroeste de Arabia, a la altura del Golfo Pérsico, ha experimentado, en los últimos años, un aumento considerable de población.

  1. New challenges and opportunities for industrial biotechnology

    Science.gov (United States)

    2012-01-01

    Industrial biotechnology has not developed as fast as expected due to some challenges including the emergences of alternative energy sources, especially shale gas, natural gas hydrate (or gas hydrate) and sand oil et al. The weaknesses of microbial or enzymatic processes compared with the chemical processing also make industrial biotech products less competitive with the chemical ones. However, many opportunities are still there if industrial biotech processes can be as similar as the chemical ones. Taking advantages of the molecular biology and synthetic biology methods as well as changing process patterns, we can develop bioprocesses as competitive as chemical ones, these including the minimized cells, open and continuous fermentation processes et al.

    1992-01-01

    Industrial initiatives are methods of lobbying and marketing to increase the activity, revenues, profits, and commercial viability of an industry. They may be undertaken by industry individuals or firms, industry groups, government agencies, or combinations of all these. In Canada, one example of an industrial initiative is the Canadian Wind Energy Association. Other initiatives relevant to the wind power industry include Technology Inflow Programs sponsored by External Affairs Canada, used for visiting foreign firms with the view to licensing foreign technology, and Industrial Research Assistance Programs to develop or adapt new technologies in partnership with government. The Conservation/Renewable Energy Council, Small Power Producers of Alberta, and Independent Power Producers Society of Ontario are also active in supporting wind energy initiatives. In other countries, notable initiatives for wind energy include the Danish wind turbine warranty guarantee program. The Western Wind Industry Network of Canada conducts regional lobbying. It is suggested that in Canada, more such networks are needed, as well as joint ventures with utilities and governments, and more work with the regulatory agencies, to promote wind energy

    Electrochemical deposition technique was used to fabricate titanium doped amorphous carbon (Ti doped a:C) Al/Ti-a:C/p-Si/Al photodiode. The effects of illumination on the current-voltage (I-V) characteristics of the Al/a:C/p-Si/Al doped Ti diode for optoelectronic applications were investigated. The reverse current of the diode increased with the increasing illumination intensities when the bias voltage was applied. By using the forward bias I-V characteristics, the ideality factor (n) and barrier height (Φb) of Al/Ti-a:C/p-Si photodiode structure was found as 1,84 and 0,50 eV, respectively. In addition, the capacitance-voltage (C-V) and conductance-voltage (G-V) measurements of the diode were studied in the frequency range of 100 kHz-600 kHz. The measured values of the capacitance decreased with the increasing frequency. The photoelectrical properties of Al/Ti-a:C/p-Si/Al device indicates that the photodiode investigated in this paper has great potential to be used in optoelectronic device applications and in industry.

    Investigation into the reactions and phase equilibria of transition metal elements (i.e. Mo, Zr, Cr, V and Ti), Al and rare earths is academically and industrially important for the development of both refractory alloys and lightweight high-temperature materials. In this work, the equilibria of the Mo-Al-Ho ternary system at 773 K have been determined by using X-ray powder diffraction and scanning electron microscopy equipped with energy dispersive X-ray analysis. A new ternary phase Al{sub 4}Mo{sub 2}Ho has been found and the other ternary phase Al{sub 43}Mo{sub 4}Ho{sub 6} is observed. Ten binary phases in the Al-Mo and Al-Ho systems, including Al{sub 17}Mo{sub 4} rather than Al{sub 4}Mo, have been determined to exist at 773 K. The homogeneity ranges of AlMo{sub 3} and Al{sub 8}Mo{sub 3} phase are 7.5 at.% and 1 at.%, respectively. According to the phase-disappearing method, the maximum solubility of Al in Mo is about 16 at.%.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Documentar el impacto de la exposición laboral al ruido, así como sus relaciones con otros factores que pueden inducir pérdidas auditivas. MATERIAL Y MÉTODOS: Durante enero y febrero de 1997 se llevó a cabo un estudio transversal en una planta productora de cemento en el estado de Morelos. Se realizaron una sonometría, dosimetría y pruebas audiométricas a 85 trabajadores para identificar las fuentes que generan ruido en las áreas de proceso, evaluar los niveles de ruido en dichas áreas (monitoreo de área y de personal y para determinar la prevalencia de pérdida auditiva inducida por el ruido entre los trabajadores. Para el análisis estadístico se emplearon medidas de tendencia central, análisis bivariado y modelos de regresión politómica. RESULTADOS: En las áreas de trituración, molinos de crudo y molinos de cemento se encontraron niveles elevados de ruido. La dosis personal más alta correspondió al puesto de envasador. En 55% de la población estudiada se presentó pérdida auditiva inducida por el ruido, y el área de proceso con el porcentaje más alto de pérdida auditiva inducida por el ruido fue la de calcinación, con 85%. CONCLUSIONES: Los resultados mostraron que el ruido es un serio riesgo en algunas áreas, y que algunos casos de pérdida auditiva inducida por el ruido hayan sido desarrollados por exposición ocupacional en esta industria. Se sugiere el diseño e implantación de un programa de conservación de la audición para proteger la salud y seguridad de los trabajadores.OBJECTIVE: To assess the impact of occupational exposure to noise, as well as its relationship with other factors that can induce hearing loss.

  12. China's industrial sector in an international context

    The industrial sector accounts for 40% of global energy use. In 1995, developing countries used an estimated 48 EJ for industrial production, over one-third of world total industrial primary energy use (Price et al., 1998). Industrial output and energy use in developing countries is dominated by China, India, and Brazil. China alone accounts for about 30 EJ (National Bureau of Statistics, 1999), or about 23% of world industrial energy use. China's industrial sector is extremely energy-intensive and accounted for almost 75% of the country's total energy use in 1997. Industrial energy use in China grew an average of 6.6% per year, from 14 EJ in 1985 to 30 EJ in 1997 (Sinton et al., 1996; National Bureau of Statistics, 1999). This growth is more than three times faster than the average growth that took place in the world during the past two decades. The industrial sector can be divided into light and heavy industry, reflecting the relative energy-intensity of the manufacturing processes. In China, about 80% of the energy used in the industrial sector is consumed by heavy industry. Of this, the largest energy-consuming industries are chemicals, ferrous metals, and building materials (Sinton et al., 1996). This paper presents the results of international comparisons of production levels and energy use in six energy-intensive subsectors: iron and steel, aluminum, cement, petroleum refining, ammonia, and ethylene. The sectoral analysis results indicate that energy requirements to produce a unit of raw material in China are often higher than industrialized countries for most of the products analyzed in this paper, reflecting a significant potential to continue to improve energy efficiency in heavy industry.

  13. Molecular and phenotypic characterization of Als1 and Als2 mutations conferring tolerance to acetolactate synthase herbicides in soybean

    2014-01-01

    BACKGROUND Sulfonylurea (SU) herbicides are effective because they inhibit acetolactate synthase (ALS), a key enzyme in branched-chain amino acid synthesis required for plant growth. A soybean line known as W4-4 was developed through rounds of seed mutagenesis and was demonstrated to have a high degree of ALS-based resistance to both post-emergence and pre-emergence applications of a variety of SU herbicides. This report describes the molecular and phenotypic characterization of the Als1 and Als2 mutations that confer herbicide resistance to SUs and other ALS inhibitors. RESULTS The mutations are shown to occur in two different ALS genes that reside on different chromosomes: Als1 (P178S) on chromosome 4 and Als2 (W560L) on chromosome 6 (P197S and W574L in Arabidopsis thaliana). CONCLUSION Although the Als1 and Als2 genes are unlinked, the combination of these two mutations is synergistic for improved tolerance of soybeans to ALS-inhibiting herbicides. © 2014 DuPont Pioneer.

    Everybody at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory's Center for Beam Physics is pleased with the rapid progress in commissioning LBL's Advanced Light Source (ALS) electron storage ring, the foundation for this third-generation synchrotron radiation facility. Designed for a maximum current of 400 mA, the ALS storage ring reached 407 mA just 24 days after storing the first beam on 16 March. ALS construction as a US Department of Energy (DOE) national user facility to provide high-brightness vacuum ultra-violet and soft x-ray radiation began in October 1987. One technical requirement marking project completion was to accumulate a 50-mA current in the storage ring. The ALS passed this milestone on 24 March, a week ahead of the official deadline. Once injected, the electron beam decays quasi-exponentially primarily because of interactions with residual gas molecules in the storage-ring vacuum chamber. Eventually, when the pressure in the vacuum chamber with beam decreases toward the expected operating level of 1 nano Torr, it will only be necessary to refill the storage ring at intervals of four to eight hours. At present the vacuum is improving rapidly as surfaces are irradiated (scrubbed) by the synchrotron radiation itself. At 100 mA, beam lifetime was about one hour (9 April)

  6. The Influence of Backwater Al3+ on Diaspore Bauxite Flotation

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2017-10-01

    Full Text Available The effect of Al3+ in backwater on the flotation of diaspore bauxite was investigated by micro-flotation tests and the underlying mechanisms were investigated by inductively coupled plasma (ICP measurement, zeta potential measurements, solution chemistry analyses, and synchrotron near edge X-ray absorption fine structure (NEXAFS analyses. The ICP measurement results show the concentration of Al3+ in backwater was up to 1 × 10−4 mol/L. The micro-flotation results indicated that backwater Al3+ reduced the flotation recovery of diaspore and improved the flotation recovery of kaolinite at pH 9, which was the pH value used in the industrial flotation. The adsorption of Al3+ species changed the zeta potential, the Al atomic abundance, and the number of active sites on the mineral surface. In particular, the result of solution chemistry analyses and synchrotron NEXAFS analyses show that the Al3+ in backwater was adsorbed on the mineral surface in the form of Al(OH3 (s, and the bond of –Al–O–Al–(OH2 or –Al/Si–O–Al–(OH2 was formed at pH 9. It changed the intensity of hydrogen bond force between minerals and collectors, and resulted in the depression of diaspore flotation and the activation of kaolinite flotation. This study can be used to guide the application of backwater in the flotation of diaspore bauxite in industry.

    Full Text Available A poluição sonora é um dos tipos de poluição do ar mais presente nos aglomerados urbanos. O ruído, de uma forma geral, causa diversos efeitos nocivos aos indivíduos e sua manifestação ocorre tanto nas esferas física, psicológica e social interferindo diretamente na comunicação estabelecida entre eles. Um dos veículos de propagação desse tipo de poluição são os templos evangélicos que em sua maioria não possuem nenhum tipo de preparação acústica para a realização das suas atividades. Com o objetivo maior de criar estratégias para redução dos aspectos ambientais responsáveis pela poluição sonora provocada por esses templos, foram realizadas medições acústicas internas e externas na Igreja Nova Aliança do Brasil, uma igreja localizada em um bairro predominantemente residencial da Cidade do Natal/RN e que apresenta uma série de deficiências relacionadas à problemática em estudo. Dessa forma, para alcançar o objetivo exposto anteriormente foi necessário identificar o comportamento acústico no interior do templo; mensurar a intensidade de ruídos que a igreja gerava no momento de seus cultos; identificar as implicações que os ruídos gerados no templo podem causar no entorno da edificação e, por fim, fornecer subsídios para o tratamento dos aspectos ambientais causadores da poluição sonora urbana. Para a obtenção das informações acima referidas foi necessária a utilização de dois softwares de simulação acústica, a saber, o Reverb e o Aurora, os quais alimentados pelas informações coletadas in loco, como por exemplo, dimensões da edificação, materiais de acabamento das superfícies, tempo de reverberação do som e outros, forneceram dados que comprovaram a necessidade urgente de um tratamento acústico do templo em análise.

Múltiples son las investigaciones realizadas acerca de las causas que lo producen y las consecuencias que provoca. Su importancia no solo radica en lo que significa en la morbilidad y la mortalidad infantil, sino que estos niños tienen habitualmente múltiples problemas posteriores. El Programa para la Reducción del BPN señala que los niños nacidos con un peso inferior a los 2 500 g presentan riesgo de mortalidad 14 veces mayor durante el primer año de vida, en comparación con los niños que nacen con un peso normal a término. Dentro de los factores de riesgo del BPN se han encontrado con mayor frecuencia en estudios realizados por diferentes autores, los siguientes: el embarazo en la adolescencia, la desnutrición en la madre, el hábito de fumar, la hipertensión arterial durante el embarazo, la sepsis cervicovaginal, la anemia y los embarazos gemelares, entre otros.

A lot of research works have been carried out about its causes and consequences. The importance of LBW not only lies in its meaning for infant mortality and morbidity but also in the many problems that low birth weight children regularly face in the future. The program for the reduction of LBW points out that newborns weighing under 2500g have during his/her first year of life a mortality risk 14 times higher than newborns with a normal weight at term.

    This manual has been prepared to help establish a consistent baseline of management practices across all ALS projects. It describes the initial process of planning a project, with a specific focus on the production of a formal project plan. We feel that the primary weakness in ALS project management efforts to date stems from a failure to appreciate the importance of ''up-front'' project planning. In this document, we present a guide (with examples) to preparing the documents necessary to properly plan, monitor, and control a project's activities. While following the manual will certainly not guarantee good project management, failure to address the issues we raise will dramatically reduce the chance of success. Here we define success as meeting the technical goals on schedule and within the prescribed budget.

Religion as a tool to differentiate between subjects is linked with power and dominance and, thus,with ideas about the constructed identities of “the other”. With this respects, religion functions as a code to define in- andexclusions and mark “the other”, e.g. “the Muslim” in predominantly Christian societies in Europe. Critical theories on racismenable to recognize, describe and define these practices and their effects. They can provide a useful tool to question and challengeintercultural and interreligious educational approaches which potentially reproduce and, thus, strengthen cultural/religiousdifferentiations.

    Niese, S.

    1983-01-01

    The specific application of neutron activation analysis (n.a.a.) for industrial materials is demonstrated by the determination of impurities in BeO, Al, Si, Cu, Ge, GaP, GaAs, steel, and irradiated uranium. A group scheme gives an orientation about the possibilities of n.a.a. The use of different standards, methods for the measurement of low radioactivities and errors caused by recoil reaction and radiation stimulated diffusion are discussed. (author)

    Porcelain is the insulating material more extensively used for electric insulators manufacturing, due to its dielectric properties; nevertheless, it presents fragility problems of manufacture and of resistance to the thermal shock, among others. For this reason studies are being conducted for the substitution of porcelain in the electric insulators manufacturing. In this area, the Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas developed an improved insulating formulation - the polymeric concrete- and an industrial prototype machine for the manufacture of high voltage electric insulators for outdoors use. [Espanol] La porcelana es el material aislante electrico mas utilizado en la elaboracion de aisladores electricos, debido a sus propiedades dielectricas; sin embargo, presenta problemas de fragilidad, de fabricacion y de baja resistencia al choque termico, entre otros.

    Science.gov (United States)

    1991-09-01

    Research activities, both in the laboratory and in the field, confirm that heat pumps can improve energy efficiency and productivity for a multitude of process types. By using heat pumps, process industries can save significant amounts of energy and money and successfully control emissions. Those industries with special needs, such as recovering solvents, can meet them more energy efficiently and cost effectively with heat pumps. Through the years, the Office of Industrial Technologies (OIT) has helped industry solve its energy problems by joining in cooperative agreements with companies willing to do the research. The companies involved in these agreements share the costs of the research and benefit directly from the technology developed. OIT then has information from demonstration projects that it can pass on to others within industry. All the projects described in this brochure were joint ventures between DOE and industry participants. OIT will assist in accelerating the use of heat pumps in the industrial marketplace by continuing to work with industry on research and demonstration projects and to transfer research results and project performance information to the rest of industry. Successfully transferring this technology could conserve as much as 1.5 quads of energy annually at a savings of more than $4 billion at today's prices.

    The mechanism of formation of ceramic microparticles (alumina) and graphene in a molten aluminum matrix is studied as a function of the morphology and type of precursor particles, the temperature, and the gas atmosphere. The influence of the composition of an aluminum composite material (as a function of the concentration and size of reinforcing particles) on its mechanical and corrosion properties, melting temperature, and thermal conductivity is investigated. Hybrid metallic Al-Al2O3-graphene composite materials with up to 10 wt % alumina microparticles and 0.2 wt % graphene films, which are uniformly distributed over the metal volume and are fully wetted with aluminum, are synthesized during the chemical interaction of a salt solution containing yttria and boron carbide with molten aluminum in air. Simultaneous introduction of alumina and graphene into an aluminum matrix makes it possible to produce hybrid metallic composite materials having a unique combination of the following properties: their thermal conductivity is higher than that of aluminum, their hardness and strength are increased by two times, their relative elongation during tension is increased threefold, and their corrosion resistance is higher than that of initial aluminum by a factor of 2.5-4. We are the first to synthesize an in situ hybrid Al-Al2O3-graphene composite material having a unique combination of some characteristics. This material can be recommended as a promising material for a wide circle of electrical applications, including ultrathin wires, and as a structural material for the aerospace industry, the car industry, and the shipbuilding industry.

    2015-08-01

    Silicon oxide-based materials such as quartz and silica are widely used in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). One way to enhance the capability of their deep plasma etching is to increase selectivity by the use of hard masks. Although this approach was studied previously, information on the use of hard masks for the etching of silicon-oxide based materials on 200 mm substrates is scarce. We present the results of etching process development for amorphous silicon oxide using Al and AlN masks with a view of the application of the results for the etching of silica and quartz. Three gas chemistries (C4F8/O2, CF4 and SF6) and their mixtures were compared in an industrial reactive ion etch (RIE) chamber with two plasma sources. It was established that pure SF6 is the best etchant and AlN is a better mask than Al for providing higher selectivity and a sidewall angle close to vertical. A range of etching parameters for micromasking-free etching was established and etched structures of up to a 4 : 1 aspect ratio were created in 21 μm-thick oxide using the process with an etch rate of 0.32-0.36 μm min-1 and a selectivity to AlN mask of (38-49) : 1.

    The purpose of this study was to document, in their own words, beliefs and attitudes that American pharmacists have towards the pharmaceutical industry and pharmacists' interactions with industry. An ethnographic-style qualitative study was conducted utilizing open-ended interviews with four hospital pharmacists, two independent pharmacists, two retail pharmacists and one administrative pharmacist in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area to elicit descriptions of and attitudes towards pharmacists' relationships with industry. Analysis of the qualitative material followed established ethnographic conventions of narrative thematic analysis. All pharmacists reported interactions with pharmaceutical company representatives. Most had received free resources or services from industry, including educational courses. Respondents uniformly believed that industry promotional efforts are primarily directed towards physicians. Although respondents felt strongly that drug prices were excessive and that 'me-too' drugs were of limited use, they generally had a neutral-to-positive view of industry-funded adherence/compliance programmes, coupons, vouchers, and copay payment programmes. Interviewees viewed direct-to-consumer advertising negatively, but had a generally positive view of industry-funded drug information. Pharmacists may represent a hitherto under-identified cohort of health professionals who are targeted for industry influence; expanding roles for pharmacists may make them even more attractive targets for future industry attention. Pharmacy schools should ensure that students learn to rely on unbiased information sources and should teach students about conflicts of interest and the risks of interacting with industry. Further research should be conducted on the extent to which pharmacists' attitudes towards their duties and towards drug assessment and recommendation are influenced by the pharmaceutical industry. © 2017 Royal Pharmaceutical Society.

    Señores doctores:

    Con toda consideración y respeto me permito agregar algunas anotaciones al escrito del Académico Alberto Cárdenas Escobar, aparecido en el No. 22 de Medicina, para destacar algunos aspectos de la personalidad del doctor Alberto Schweitzer galardonado con el Premio Nobel de la Paz.

    A los 30 años de edad tomó una decisión dramática: Estudiar Medicina para trabajaren el África Ecuatorial. Cuando terminó sus investigaciones sobre enfermedades tropicales y sus prácticas hospitaLarias, partió para el Gabon al pequeño pueblo de Lambarené. La tarea era desconsoladora; La atención médica había que prestarla al aire libre; iba con su esposa, como enfermera y amanuense, y no se encontraba ni un intérprete, ni un ayudante. Cuando le llegaron la medicina y el equipaje hubo que acomodarlos en un viejo gallinero abandonado; el calor era insoportable y le venían enfermos de varias millas a la redonda, a pie o en Canoas.

    Las enfermedades más difundidas eran Malaria, Disentería, estreptococias y la más mortífera, la Tripanosomiasis Gambiense, para la que empezaban a llegar medicinas nuevas eficaces y las medidas preventivas como el suministro de agua potable y enmallado de ventanas impedían muchas contaminaciones.

    Pero la que causaba mayores dificultades y trabajo era la Mycobacteriasis Anestesiante, incurable, de difícil diagnóstico, afectando a varios miembros de la misma familia, de aspecto horripilante, con complicaciones neuríticas muy dolorosas, frecuente ceguera, e invalideces y procesos erisepelatososacrotéricos, que exigían acompañante para el cambio y lavado de vendas y suministro de alimentos.

    Microelectronics industry leaders routinely name mask cost and cycle time as top issues of concern. A survey was created with support from International SEMATECH (ISMT) and administered by SEMI North America to gather information about the mask industry as an objective assessment of its overall condition. The survey is designed with the input of mask technologists from semiconductor manufacturers, merchant mask suppliers, and makers of equipment for mask fabrication. This year's assessment is the third in the current series of annual reports and is intended to be used as a baseline for the mask industry and the microelectronics industry to gain a perspective on the technical and business status of the mask industry. This report will continue to serve as a valuable reference to identify the strengths and opportunities of the mask industry. The results may be used to guide future investments on critical path issues. This year's survey builds upon the 2003 survey to provide an ongoing database using the same questions as a baseline with only a few minor changes or additions. Questions are grouped into categories: general business profile information, data processing, yields and yield loss mechanisms, delivery times, returns and services. Within each category are a many questions that create a detailed profile of both the business and technical status of the mask industry. This assessment includes inputs from ten major global merchant and captive mask manufacturers whose revenue represents approximately 85% of the global mask market.

  20. How industries change.

    Science.gov (United States)

    McGahan, Anita M

    2004-10-01

    It's fairly obvious: To make intelligent investments within your organization, you need to understand how your whole industry is changing. But such knowledge is not always easy to come by. Companies misread clues and arrive at false conclusions all the time. To truly understand where your industry is headed, you have to take a long-term, high-level look at the context in which you do business, says Boston University professor Anita McGahan. She studied a variety of businesses from a cross section of industries over a ten-year period, examining how industry structure affects business profitability and investor returns. Her research suggests that industries evolve along one of four distinct trajectories--radical, progressive, creative, and intermediating--that set boundaries on what will generate profits in a business. These four trajectories are defined by two types of threats. The first is when new, outside alternatives threaten to weaken or make obsolete core activities that have historically generated profits for an industry. The second is when an industry's core assets--its resources, knowledge, and brand capital--fail to generate value as they once did. Industries undergo radical change when core assets and core activities are both threatened with obsolescence; they experience progressive change when neither are jeopardized. Creative change occurs when core assets are under threat but core activities are stable, and intermediating change happens when core activities are threatened while core assets retain their capacity to create value. If your company's innovation strategy is not aligned with your industry's change trajectory, your plan for achieving returns on invested capital cannot succeed, McGahan says. But if you understand which path you're on, you can determine which strategies will succeed and which will backfire.

    Full Text Available Islam, through the Quran, proclaims that its mission includes the teachings to the whole universe, Everything in the universe is maintained by Islam, and none of the symptoms are ignored. The revelations also include the traditions of the Prophet that are authentic (shahih and good (hasan in quality. Both the Quran and maqbulah hadiths are accepted by Muslims on the basis of faith. When some experts of UIN Walisongo from various disciplines try to understand the sacred words of these two resources, their understanding continues, reaching the paradigm of the unity of science which essentially unites the normative, social, and natural sciences. The effect of this paradigm has brought up an issue for the author. Is there any hadiths or Prophetic traditions that can be used as a grand theory in the management disciplines of Islamic education.To address this issue, the authors conducted a literature research with the title Development of Islamic Education Management Module. Sources of data were focused on nine books of Hadiths : Sahih al-Bukhari, Sahih al-Muslim, Sunan Abu Dawud, Sunan at-Turmudzi, Sunan an-Nasai, Sunan Ibn Majah, Sunan ad-Darimi, Muwatta Malik, and Musnad Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal in the form of digital data Lidwa Reader Software Book 9 Imam Hadith. The findings of the study stated that the meaning of the word Rabb includes: creating, nurturing, maintaining, teaching, educating, and organizing. Thus, in an academic term, the word Rabb implies a manager or leader. Meanwhile, in the concept of comprehensive manager it contains at least 14 nomenclature denotations: planning, responsibility, organization, coordination, system of employee payroll, learning, resources, humanity, principle of making it easier for the manager to the employee, motivated to achieve optimal performance, preventing unproductivity, education participation, institutional costs, monitoring, and evaluation system. Each nomenclature has numerous hadiths that could serve

  2. Influence of impact speed on water droplet erosion of TiAl compared with Ti6Al4V.

    Water Droplet Erosion (WDE) as a material degradation phenomenon has been a concern in power generation industries for decades. Steam turbine blades and the compressor blades of gas turbines that use water injection usually suffer from WDE. The present work focuses on studying erosion resistance of TiAl as a potential alloy for turbine blades compared to Ti6Al4V, a frequently used blade alloy. Their erosion behaviour is investigated at different droplet impact speeds to determine the relation between erosion performance and impact speed. It is found that the relationship is governed by a power law equation, ER ~ V(n), where the speed exponent is 7-9 for Ti6Al4V and 11-13 for TiAl. There is a contrast between the observed speed exponent in this work and the ones reported in the literature for Ti6Al4V. It is attributed to the different erosion setups and impingement conditions such as different droplet sizes. To verify this, the erosion experiments were performed at two different droplet sizes, 464 and 603 μm. TiAl showed superior erosion resistance in all erosion conditions; however, its erosion performance exhibits higher sensitivity to the impact speed compared to Ti6Al4V. It means that aggressive erosion conditions decrease the WDE resistance superiority of TiAl.

    The most important applications of the radiation technology are the crosslinking of polymers and sterilisation. Although extensive experience about the use of this technology is available and powerful and dependable radiation facilities can be obtained, as yet the radiation technology has not found the acceptance it deserves in the industry. The main reason therefore has to do with how the question of radiation or the term radiation is presented to the industry and among the population. This paper will deal with considerations and ways in which the industrial use of the radiation technology can be expanded. (author)

Salafiah is in fact not inconsistent with the progress and improvement, while their calling for returning to the original and main sources is approved by the religion and not in contradiction with the reality of Muslim. Moreover, it is a valid approach in achieving a better life in this world and hereafter. The objectives of salafiah are to purify the faith from the heresies (bid’ah, to educate Islamic personality, to open human mind to accept all the new in the fields of the experimental sciences, and to establish the faith from its sources which is far from the emerging narrow-minded religion sects recently. Finally, the salafist open widely to the experimental sciences, to the uses of scientific results, to the great invention in industrial sector and to the modern technology as they are very useful to support and sustain the Islamic teachings in the context of a more beautiful life with a less difficulties.

Es kann nur durch die Zurverfügungstellung und allgemeine Veröffentlichung erreicht werden. Historisch betrachtet konnte man immaterielle Eigentumsrechte nicht erwerben, wenn man keinen Verleger fand. Erst in den letzten Jahren wurde es sehr einfach, durch die Veröffentlichung unseres Wissens im Internet, zu geistigem Eigentum zu gelangen. Die Ursache für diese Eigenschaft geistigen Eigentums ist die Informationstheorie, in der Informationen in beliebiger Menge zu Redundanz kopiert werden kann. An dieser Stelle spielen die Verlage noch immer eine wichtige Rolle, durch ihre Anzeige ausgewählter Immaterialgüterrechte von Autoren oder Interessengruppen.Abstract: Intellectual property is characterized by a remarkable attribute. It has to be made available for the world by publication. In earlier times one couldn’t achieve intangible property rights if there was no publisher available. Only in recent years it became very easy to get intellectual properties by publishing our knowledge in the Internet. The cause for such a strange fact is the information theory, in which information can be copied to redundancy in any quantity. A growing problem is the amount of publications in which the identification of individual contributions is more and more difficult. At this point, the publishing industry plays till now an important role by advertising intellectual properties of selected authors or special interest groups.

    Delagrange, H.

    1993-01-01

    After a first round of industrial applications using heavy ion beams, GANIL has refocused these activities along the lines defined by a strategy and market study. Heavy ion industrial applications take their roots in the physical effects of the interactions occurring between heavy ion projectiles and matter. Specific equipments operated by GANIL or CIRIL allow users to take benefit from these effects. By heavy ion irradiation, industrial companies qualify radiation hardened electronic components and sensitize plastic films to produce 'nuclear track' membranes. Research and development programs with laboratories of the public sector, focus on heavy ion lithography dedicated to large area luminescent flat screens with field emitter microtips and on tribology with radioactive implanted ions. Even sometimes facing difficulties to fill the gap between industry and research, GANIL is eager to promote heavy ion beam technologies. (author) 36 refs., 6 figs., 5 tabs

    Kimmel, Kurt R.

    2003-12-01

    Microelectronics industry leaders routinely name mask technology and mask supply issues of cost and cycle time as top issues of concern. A survey was initiated in 2002 with support from International SEMATECH (ISMT) and administered by SEMI North America to gather information about the mask industry as an objective assessment of its overall condition.1 This paper presents the results of the second annual survey which is an enhanced version of the inaugural survey building upon its strengths and improving the weak points. The original survey was designed with the input of member company mask technologists, merchant mask suppliers, and industry equipment makers. The assessment is intended to be used as a baseline for the mask industry and the microelectronics industry to gain a perspective on the technical and business status of the critical mask industry. An objective is to create a valuable reference to identify strengths and opportunities and to guide investments on critical-path issues. As subsequent years are added, historical profiles can also be created. This assessment includes inputs from ten major global merchant and captive mask manufacturers representing approximately 80% of the global mask market (using revenue as the measure) and making this the most comprehensive mask industry survey ever. The participating companies are: Compugraphics, Dai Nippon Printing, Dupont Photomask, Hoya, IBM, Infineon, Intel, Taiwan Mask Company, Toppan, and TSMC. Questions are grouped into five categories: General Business Profile Information; Data Processing; Yields and Yield loss Mechanisms; Delivery Time; and Returns and Services. Within each category are a multitude of questions that create a detailed profile of both the business and technical status of the mask industry.

  18. Industrial services at CERN

    CERN Multimedia

    2002-01-01

    The Bulletin looks at industrial services contracts and the real impact of the cost reductions at CERN. The level of industrial services contracts varies from one phase to another. For example, during the dismantling of LEP (photo) it rose substiantially to fall again at the end of dismantling. Industrial services contracts are an important resource for CERN. The level and nature of such contracts changes according to the phase of operation of the Laboratory. A construction phase, as for the LHC, requires a higher level of industrial services contracts compared with a period of normal running. During the operation of LEP, industrial services contracts were thus maintained at a level of 120 MCHF per year. The level rose to 156 MCHF in 2001 to include contracts awarded for dismantling LEP, and fell to about 144 MCHF in 2002 when the dismantling was complete. During the whole LHC construction period, up to 2007, industrial services spending will be stable in the range 135-140 MCHF per year. For the running pe...

    At Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory's (LBL) Advanced Light Source (ALS), three 4.6 m long undulators have been completed, tested and installed. A fourth is under construction. The completed undulators include two 5.0 cm period length, 89 period devices (U5.0s) which achieve a 0.85 T effective field at a 14 mm minimum gap and a 8.0 cm period length, 55 period device (U8.0) that reaches a 1.2 T effective field at a 14 mm minimum gap. The undulator under construction is a 10.0 cm period length, 43 period device (U10.0) that is designed to achieve 0.98 T at a 23 mm gap. Undulator magnetic gap variation (rms) is within 25 microns over the periodic structure length. Reproducibility of the adjustable magnetic gap has been measured to be within +/- 5 microns. Gap adjusting range is from 14 mm to 210 mm, which can be scanned in one minute. The 5.1 m long vacuum chambers are flat in the vertical direction to within 0.74 mm and straight in the horizontal direction to within 0.08 mm over the 4.6 m magnetic structure sections. Vacuum chamber base pressures after UHV beam conditioning are. in the mid 10 -11 Torr range and storage ring operating pressures with full current are in the low 10 -10 Torr range. Measurements show that the uncorrelated magnetic field errors are 0.23%, and 0.20% for the two U5.Os and the U8.0 respectively and that the field integrals are small over the 1 cm by 6 cm beam aperture. Device description, fabrication, and measurements are presented

The survey is designed with the input of mask technologists from semiconductor manufacturers, merchant mask suppliers, and makers of equipment for mask fabrication. This year's assessment is the fourth in the current series of annual reports and is intended to be used as a baseline for the mask industry and the microelectronics industry to gain a perspective on the technical and business status of the mask industry. This report will continue to serve as a valuable reference to identify the strengths and opportunities of the mask industry. The results may be used to guide future investments on critical path issues. This year's survey contains all of the 2004 survey questions to provide an ongoing database. Additional questions were added to the survey covering operating cost factors and equipment utilization. Questions are grouped into categories: general business profile information, data processing, yields and yield loss mechanisms, delivery times, returns and services, operating cost factors and equipment utilization. Within each category are a many questions that create a detailed profile of both the business and technical status of the mask industry. This assessment includes inputs from eight major global merchant and captive mask manufacturers whose revenue represents approximately 85% of the global mask market. This participation rate is reduced by one captive from 2004. Note: Toppan, DuPont Photomasks Inc and AMTC (new) were consolidated into one input therefore the 2004 and 2005 surveys are basically equivalent.

    Full Text Available Having reviewed a variety of approaches to understanding the essence of wine industry, having studied the modern ideas about the future of wine industry, having analyzed more than 50 maps from the Internet we have set the trends and special features of wine industry mapping in the world, such as: - the vast majority of maps displays the development of the industry at regional or national level, whereas there are practically no world maps; - wine-growing regions are represented on maps very unevenly; - all existing maps of the industry could be classified as analytical ascertaining inventory type; - the dominant ways of cartographic representation are area method and qualitative background method, sign method and collation maps are rarely used; - basically all the Internet maps have low quality as they are scanned images with poor resolution; - the special feature of maps published lately is lack of geographical basis (except for state borders and coastline. We created wine production and consumption world map «Wine Industry» in the scale of 1:60 000 000 with simple geographical basis (state names, state borders, major rivers, coastline. It was concluded that from the methodological point of view it is incorrect not to show geographical basis on maps of wine industry. Analysis of this map allowed us to identify areas of traditional wine-making, potential wine-making areas and countries which claim to be the world leaders in the field of wine production. We found disbalans between wine production and wine consumption - increasing wine production in South America, China and the United States and increasing wine consumption (mainly due to the import products in countries where the grape is not the primary agricultural product.

  7. Novel hysteresis effects in Nb/AlOx/Al/AlOx/Nb tunnel junctions

    Blamire, M.G.; Kirk, E.C.G.; Somekh, R.E.; Evetts, J.E.

    1991-01-01

    Measurements on current-biased Nb/AlO x /Al/AlO x /Nb double tunnel junction devices with very thin central Al layers show a novel double hysteretic structure in the subgap region. Similar junction structures have previously exhibited very large nonequilibrium effects; the effects reported here appear close to and above the equilibrium critical temperature of Al. A model is presented in which the hysteresis is shown to arise from a transition from finite to zero voltage across one barrier on increasing current, due to the nucleation of an inhomogeneous state in the ultrathin central Al layer in which normal and superconducting states coexist. This reverse switching effect is shown to arise from the self-shunting effect of low-gap regions. Predictions of this model are shown to agree with the experimental data

    TiAl-based intermetallic compounds have attracted considerable interest as structural materials for high-temperature applications due to their low density and substantial mechanical strength at high temperatures. However, one major drawback hindering industrial application arises from the insufficient oxidation resistance at temperatures beyond 700 C. In the present contribution some general aspects of high temperature oxidation of TiAl-based intermetallics will be presented. This will be followed by a discussion of the influence of alloying elements, in particular niobium, and of the effect of nitrogen in the oxidizing environment on the high temperature oxidation behavior of such materials

    The NEMS Industrial Demand Model is a dynamic accounting model, bringing together the disparate industries and uses of energy in those industries, and putting them together in an understandable and cohesive framework. The Industrial Model generates mid-term (up to the year 2010) forecasts of industrial sector energy demand as a component of the NEMS integrated forecasting system. From the NEMS system, the Industrial Model receives fuel prices, employment data, and the value of output of industrial activity. Based on the values of these variables, the Industrial Model passes back to the NEMS system estimates of consumption by fuel types.

    Full Text Available The actual deficiency of investment into Russian industry innovative development increases its technological drag from industries of countries with developed markets. Although the rate of investment into real sectors of Russian economics mid 2000 was higher compared to the previous period, annual investment amounts were much lower than in 1990. At present, highest investment amounts are directed to industry extractive branches and to the commerce. Amounts invested to various economy branches do not correspond to their contribution to the country’sGross Added Product; particularly underinvested are manufacturing industry branches. At present, foreign share in the country economy total investment makes 15–18%. Recently, most interesting for foreigners was investment to machine-building branches with overwhelming part (for example, 90% in 2007–2008 of foreign investment into the machine-building industry being directed to creation of new automobile plants. Today, first place in the list of foreign investors’ preferences in Russia is taken by the machine-tool construction sector.

  11. Doctors and pharmaceutical industry.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Beran, Roy G

    2009-09-01

    The pharmaceutical industry is seen as seducing doctors by providing expensive gifts, subsidising travel and underwriting practice expenses in return for those doctors prescribing products that otherwise they would not use. This paints doctors in a very negative light; suggests doctors are available to the highest bidder; implies doctors do not adequately act as independent agents; and that doctors are driven more by self-interest than by patient needs. Similar practices, in other industries, are accepted as normal business behaviour but it is automatically assumed to be improper if the pharmaceutical industry supports doctors. Should the pharmaceutical industry withdraw educational grants then there would be: fewer scientific meetings; reduced attendance at conferences; limited post graduate education; and a depreciated level of maintenance of professional standards. To suggest that doctors prescribe inappropriately in return for largesse maligns their integrity but where there is no scientific reason to choose between different treatments then there can be little argument against selecting the product manufactured by a company that has invested in the doctor and the question arises as to whether this represents bad medicine? This paper will examine what constitutes non-professional conduct in response to inducements by the pharmaceutical industry. It will review: conflict of interest; relationships between doctors and pharma and the consequences for patients; and the need for critical appraisal before automatically decrying this relationship while accepting that there remain those who do not practice ethical medicine.

    2016-09-01

    This paper presents a finite element thermal model for similar and dissimilar alloy friction stir spot welding (FSSW). The model is calibrated and validated using instrumented lap joints in Al-Al and Al-Fe automotive sheet alloys. The model successfully predicts the thermal histories for a range of process conditions. The resulting temperature histories are used to predict the growth of intermetallic phases at the interface in Al-Fe welds. Temperature predictions were used to study the evolution of hardness of a precipitation-hardened aluminum alloy during post-weld aging after FSSW.

  15. Deformation mechanisms of nanotwinned Al

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Zhang, Xinghang [Texas A & M Univ., College Station, TX (United States)

    2016-11-10

    The objective of this project is to investigate the role of different types of layer interfaces on the formation of high density stacking fault (SF) in Al in Al/fcc multilayers, and understand the corresponding deformation mechanisms of the films. Stacking faults or twins can be intentionally introduced (via growth) into certain fcc metals with low stacking fault energy (such as Cu, Ag and 330 stainless steels) to achieve high strength, high ductility, superior thermal stability and good electrical conductivity. However it is still a major challenge to synthesize these types of defects into metals with high stacking fault energy, such as Al. Although deformation twins have been observed in some nanocrystalline Al powders by low temperature, high strain rate cryomilling or in Al at the edge of crack tip or indentation (with the assistance of high stress intensity factor), these deformation techniques typically introduce twins sporadically and the control of deformation twin density in Al is still not feasible. This project is designed to test the following hypotheses: (1) Certain type of layer interfaces may assist the formation of SF in Al, (2) Al with high density SF may have deformation mechanisms drastically different from those of coarse-grained Al and nanotwinned Cu. To test these hypotheses, we have performed the following tasks: (i) Investigate the influence of layer interfaces, stresses and deposition parameters on the formation and density of SF in Al. (ii) Understand the role of SF on the deformation behavior of Al. In situ nanoindentation experiments will be performed to probe deformation mechanisms in Al. The major findings related to the formation mechanism of twins and mechanical behavior of nanotwinned metals include the followings: 1) Our studies show that nanotwins can be introduced into metals with high stacking fault energy, in drastic contrast to the general anticipation. 2) We show two strategies that can effectively introduce growth twins in

En la anestesiología hay mayor riesgo de dependencia a opioides e hipnóticos que en otras especialidades y puede llegar a afectar al 1% de los médicos anestesiólogos.La fisiopatología del trastorno por uso de sustancias tiene hechos comunes para diferentes drogas. Interactúan la vulnerabilidad genética y factores psicosociales como predisponentes y los efectos psicobiológicos de la sustancia como factor gatillante. En el caso de los anestesiólogos, la sustancia se encuentra en el lugar de trabajo y por lo tanto, el individuo está constantemente expuesto.Una disfunción previa del sistema de recompensa en el circuito mesocorticolímbico o causada por la exposición a la sustancia adictiva es la piedra central de la neurobiología de las adicciones. Los opioides, anfetaminas, canabinoides, alcohol y nicotina, son algunas de las sustancias exógenas que activan el circuito y causan inicialmente un efecto hedónico que reforzará la conducta por repetir la experiencia. Con el tiempo la interacción con la droga será para evitar los síntomas de abstinencia.Dada la exposición laboral de los anestesiólogos, es necesario prevenir, detectar y tratar precozmente a quienes están abusando de sustancias durante su ejercicio profesional.Por las características de estos fármacos, aspectos psicológicos especiales de los médicos y el contexto laboral se hace necesario un tratamiento especializado y en anestesiólogos la reinserción laboral debe ser un proceso controlado, gradual y con un seguimiento prolongado.

    "Concurrent with the decline in population growth rate in the 1980s, Thailand experienced an unprecedented rate of economic growth....Such phenomenal economic growth has generally been attributed to the internationalization of the Thai economy through the rapid expansion of exports, foreign investment and tourism. However, industries in the manufacturing sector...tend to be resource-based and labour-intensive. Moreover, foreign investment in export-oriented industries tends to use Thailand as a base for assembling rather than producing goods and has been attracted primarily by cheap labour cost. All these may contribute to the employment of [a] nonskilled, lowly-paid labour force, but not the development of scientific/technology based industries, the foundation for permanent and lasting economic development."

    The ability of lipases to perform specific reactions of transformation (biotransformation) makes these enzymes a useful tool used in many syntheses, for example: in the production of detergents, cosmetics, biosurfactants, in the oil-chemical, paper, dairy, food or pharmaceutical industries. Lipases are ubiquitous enzymes but only lipases produced by microorganisms are important for industrial applications due to their wide variety of properties such as stability in organic solvents, action under mild conditions, high substrate specificity and region- and enantioselectivity, as well as the relatively simple methods of their production in fermentors and recovery from the culture medium. This paper reviews the latest achievements in the production of lipases in the submerged fermentation and solid state fermentation using waste products from the agricultural industry. In addition, new applications of lipases were described, including those for the synthesis of biopolymers and biodiesel and for the production of enantiomeric pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and flavoring compounds.

    1997-09-01

    Titanium is a reference material for the construction of waste containers in the Canadian Nuclear Fuel Waste Management Program. It has been in industrial service for over 30 a, often in severe corrosion environments, but it is still considered a relatively exotic material with limited operating history. This has arisen because of the aerospace applications of this material and the misconception that the high strength-to-weight ratio dominates the choice of this material. In fact, the advantage of titanium lies in its high reliability and excellent corrosion resistance. It has a proven record in seawater heat exchanger service and a demonstrated excellent reliability even in polluted water. For many reasons it is the technically correct choice of material for marine applications. In this report we review the industrial service history of titanium, particularly in hot saline environments, and demonstrate that it is a viable waste container material, based upon this industrial service history and operating experience.

    This presentation by Norway's Minister of Petroleum and Energy describes (1) Norway in the energy picture, (2) oil market developments, (3) the establishment of an energy policy and (4) the investment level of the Norwegian petroleum activities. Value creation from Norwegian petroleum resources is directly connected with the commercial companies' participation in the activities. Thus, it has been a main challenge for Norway to establish a balanced petroleum policy and a legal framework. Presumably Norway will remain a prospective and attractive petroleum province for a long time. Over the years, Norway has developed three very competent and competitive national oil companies and a significant national supply industry. This industry is highly competitive internationally. Many new petroleum provinces are opening up for foreign investors and energy consumption of the world is expected to increase significantly the next 20 - 30 years. This implies increased demand for the products, but also strong competition for industry resources

    Chemical industry plays an important role in promoting the development of global economy and human society. However, the negative effects caused by chemical production cannot be ignored, which often leads to serious resource consumption and environmental pollution. It is essential for chemical industry to achieve a sustainable development. Industrial symbiosis is one of the key topics in the field of industrial ecology and circular economy, which has been identified as a creative path leading to sustainability. Based on an extensively searching for literatures on linking industrial symbiosis with chemical industry, this paper aims to review the literatures which involves three aspects: (1) economic and environmental benefits achieved by chemical industry through implementing industrial symbiosis, (2) chemical eco-industrial parks, (3) and safety issues for chemical industry. An outlook is also provided. This paper concludes that: (1) chemical industry can achieve both economic and environmental benefits by implementing industrial symbiosis, (2) establishing eco-industrial parks is essential for chemical industry to implement and improve industrial symbiosis, and (3) there is a close relationship between IS and safety issues of chemical industry.

    The Russian Federation holds the world's largest proven natural gas reserves, and produces more natural gas than any other nation. Russian exports of gas to Europe and the other nations of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) have a significant impact on natural gas markets throughout Europe and Asia. The aim of this three part study is to inform the international energy and investment community about the current status of the Russian gas industry and the prospects for its future development through 2010. It is also intended to provide an opportunity for the appropriate authorities in the Russian Federation to assess the needs of the industry and to consider areas for possible collaboration with the international investment community and international organizations in a rapidly changing economic and business environment. The study was prepared by the Energy Branch of the United Nations Department for Development Support and Management Services (UN/DDSMS). It was financed by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). Part I describes Russian gas reserves and potential resources, and overviews the country's gas producing, pipeline and distribution industries. Additionally, it summarizes the markets for Russian natural gas including domestic and external markets. It discusses the primary economics and potential factors that currently impact the Russian gas industry during the Federation's transition toward a market economy. Part II highlights possible directions for the development of the Russian gas resource base, including upstream gas production and downstream marketing in five-, ten- and fifteen-year time frames. It projects export opportunities for Russian Federation gas and evaluates the options for shaping regional and international markets. Part III addresses the legal and regulatory framework and fiscal regime of the Russian gas industry. It also reviews the major investment requirements and the equipment and training needs of the Russian gas

  9. Emulsified industrial oils recycling

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Gabris, T.

    1982-04-01

    The industrial lubricant market has been analyzed with emphasis on current and/or developing recycling and re-refining technologies. This task has been performed for the United States and other industrialized countries, specifically France, West Germany, Italy and Japan. Attention has been focused at emulsion-type fluids regardless of the industrial application involved. It was found that emulsion-type fluids in the United States represent a much higher percentage of the total fluids used than in other industrialized countries. While recycling is an active matter explored by the industry, re-refining is rather a result of other issues than the mere fact that oil can be regenerated from a used industrial emulsion. To extend the longevity of an emulsion is a logical step to keep expenses down by using the emulsion as long as possible. There is, however, another important factor influencing this issue: regulations governing the disposal of such fluids. The ecological question, the respect for nature and the natural balances, is often seen now as everybody's task. Regulations forbid dumping used emulsions in the environment without prior treatment of the water phase and separation of the oil phase. This is a costly procedure, so recycling is attractive since it postpones the problem. It is questionable whether re-refining of these emulsions - as a business - could stand on its own if these emulsions did not have to be taken apart for disposal purposes. Once the emulsion is separated into a water and an oil phase, however, re-refining of the oil does become economical.

    Radiation processing refers to the use of ionizing radiation to initiate chemical or biological changes in various materials as a substitute for conventional thermal or chemical processes. The method was inroduced in the industrial field 30 years ago and is now being widely used for numerous applications, among which industrial radiography, polymer modification, sterilization or decontamination, and food preservation. Both electron beam accelerators and gamma sources can be used, depending mainly of the amount of radiation and the penetration required. Radiation processing presents an increasing economical importance; in 1986 the market volume of ionized products ranged 3 billion $ [fr
