    OpenAIRE

    Svensson, Linda; Friman, Amelie

    2016-01-01

    Ätstörningar är en sjukdom som drabbar både tjejer och killar. Det framkommer i artiklarna att det finns en felaktig bild av att killar inte drabbas av psykiska sjukdomar såsom ätstörningar. Då ätstörningar hos killar är ett dolt problem fokuserar detta arbete på att beskriva hur det är att vara kille med ätstörningsberoende. Metoden är en systematisk litteraturöversikt där tolv vetenskapliga artiklar inom området ”killar med ätstörningsberoende” kvalitetsgranskades och analyserades. Utifrån...

    Syftet med denna studie var att ta reda på om ungdomar som valt ett liv inom föreningsidrotten på grund av inre eller yttre motivation och faktorer.

Av de personer som svarat att de valt att inte vara aktiva utövare i en idrottsförening visar det sig att drygt hälften inte är det på grund av yttre faktorer o...

  4. Water desalination with MED

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Gonzalez, Daniel; Caerols, Pablo; Olmedo, Juan Carlos [Enorchile (Chile)

    2010-07-01

    The greenhouse gas emissions from the Chilean copper mining industry account for 61% of total and this has been a serious cause for concern. The amount of water used for mining operations is also great and it has to be desalinated. The carbon footprint of desalinated water is large. This paper discusses the desalination of water using multi-effect desalination (MED). The most commonly used technology for desalination is the reverse osmosis process, where pre-treated water is forced through a semi-permeable membrane. The MED technology uses low-pressure steam from turbine or engine exhaust gases, which makes it highly efficient and cost effective. The process is briefly explained and a diagram shows the flow process. Advantages include low electricity consumption, low maintenance, and high reliability. Additionally, no pretreatment of the water is required and the process thus also decreases the carbon footprint. It can be concluded that MED combined with a power plant is a powerful solution for mine operations.

    A left R-module E is ann-injective provided that every R-homomorphism from an finitelygenerated right annihilator ideal r(L) of R to E can be extended to R. We say that a left R-module M is ann-flat in case for every finitely generated right annihilator ideal r(L) of R,we have the exact sequence 0→r(L) (×)RM→RR(×)M. In this articfle, we prove that a left R--module B is ann--flat if and only if itscharacteristic module B* =HmomR(B,Q/Z) is ann--injective.%左 R-模 E 是 ann-内射的,如果对于R的每个有限生成右零化子理想r(L)到R的R-模同态都能延拓为到E的 R-模同态.同样.我们称左R-模M是ann-平坦的如果对于R的每个有限生成右零化子理想r(L),都可以得到正合列O→r(L) (×)RM→RR(×)M.在本文中,我们证明了R-模B是ann-平坦的当且仅当它的示性模B*=HomR(B,Q/Z)是ann-内射的.

  16. Instability localization with artificial neural networks (ANNs)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The aim of this piece of research is to investigate the potential of artificial neural networks (ANNs) for tackling the problem of instability localization. The instability is modeled by a variable strength absorber (point-source) in a two-dimensional bare reactor model with a one neutron-energy group. The proposed approach constitutes an exercise in simplicity in that: (1) an arbitrarily simplified model is employed for ANN training and validation; (2) few training and validation patterns of low complexity are utilized; (3) the ANN inputs are derived directly from the neutron noise signals, the proposed location of instability is given on-line via an uncomplicated combination of ANN outputs; (4) the ANN architecture is independent of the number of possible locations of instability. In fact, unlike previous approaches which employ hundreds of outputs (one for each fuel assembly), only two ANN outputs are employed representing the X- and Y-coordinates (location) of instability; (5) the responses of only a few detectors are employed; (6) a measure of confidence in the prediction is assigned. The results of ANN testing, which is performed on patterns from both actual and simplified models, are reported and analyzed

  2. THE FEMINISM AND FEMININITY OF ANN VERONICA IN H. G. WELLS' ANN VERONICA

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Liem Satya Limanta

    2002-01-01

    Full Text Available H.G. Well's Ann Veronica structurally seems to be divided into two parts; the first deals with Ann Veronica's struggle to get equality with men and freedom in most aspects of life, such as in politics, economics, education, and sexuality; the second describes much the other side of her individuality which she cannot deny, namely her femininity, such as her crave for love, marriage, maternity, and beauty. H.G. Wells describes vividly the two elements in Ann Veronica, feminism and femininity. As a feminist, Ann Veronica rebelled against her authoritative Victorian father, who regarded women only as men's property to be protected from the harsh world outside. On the other side, Ann could not deny her being a woman after she fell in love with Capes. Her femininity from the second half of the novel then is explored. Although the novel ends with the depiction of the domestic life of Ann Veronica, it does not mean that the feminism is gone altogether. The key point is that the family life Ann chooses as a `submissive' wife and good mother is her choice. It is very different if it is forced on her to do. Thus, this novel depicts both sides of Ann Veronica, her feminism and her femininity.

  11. Obituary: Anne Barbara Underhill, 1920-2003

    Science.gov (United States)

    Roman, Nancy Grace

    2003-12-01

    Anne was born in Vancouver, British Columbia on 12 June 1920. Her parents were Frederic Clare Underhill, a civil engineer and Irene Anna (née Creery) Underhill. She had a twin brother and three younger brothers. As a young girl she was active in Girl Guides and graduated from high school winning the Lieutenant Governor's medal as one of the top students in the Province. She also excelled in high school sports. Her mother died when Anne was 18 and, while undertaking her university studies, Anne assisted in raising her younger brothers. Her twin brother was killed in Italy during World War II (1944), a loss that Anne felt deeply. Possibly because of fighting to get ahead in astronomy, a field overwhelming male when she started, she frequently appeared combative. At the University of British Columbia, Anne obtained a BA (honors) in Chemistry (1942), followed by a MA in 1944. After working for the NRC in Montreal for a year, she studied at the University of Toronto prior to entering the University of Chicago in 1946 to obtain her PhD. Her thesis was the first model computed for a multi-layered stellar atmosphere (1948). During this time she worked with Otto Struve, developing a lifetime interest in hot stars and the analysis of their high dispersion spectra. She received two fellowships from the University Women of Canada. She received a U.S. National Research Fellowship to work at the Copenhagen Observatory, and upon its completion, she returned to British Columbia to work at the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory as a research scientist from 1949--1962. During this period she spent a year at Harvard University as a visiting professor and at Princeton where she used their advanced computer to write the first code for modeling stellar atmospheres. Anne was invited to the University of Utrecht (Netherlands) as a full professor in 1962. She was an excellent teacher, well liked by the students in her classes, and by the many individuals that she guided throughout her

    The Mars Science Laboratory Entry, Descent, and Landing Instrumentation (MEDLI) Project s objectives are to measure aerothermal environments, sub-surface heatshield material response, vehicle orientation, and atmospheric density for the atmospheric entry and descent phases of the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) entry vehicle. The flight science objectives of MEDLI directly address the largest uncertainties in the ability to design and validate a robust Mars entry system, including aerothermal, aerodynamic and atmosphere models, and thermal protection system (TPS) design. The instrumentation suite will be installed in the heatshield of the MSL entry vehicle. The acquired data will support future Mars entry and aerocapture missions by providing measured atmospheric data to validate Mars atmosphere models and clarify the design margins for future Mars missions. MEDLI thermocouple and recession sensor data will significantly improve the understanding of aeroheating and TPS performance uncertainties for future missions. MEDLI pressure data will permit more accurate trajectory reconstruction, as well as separation of aerodynamic and atmospheric uncertainties in the hypersonic and supersonic regimes. This paper provides an overview of the project including the instrumentation design, system architecture, and expected measurement response.

  11. Soft Approximations and uni-int Decision Making

    CERN Document Server

    Kharal, Athar

    2010-01-01

    Notions of core, support and inversion of a soft set have been de ned and studied. Soft approximations are soft sets developed through core and support, and are used for granulating the soft space. Membership structure of a soft set has been probed in and many interesting properties presented. The mathematical apparatus developed so far in this paper yields a detailed analysis of two works viz. [N. Cagman, S. Enginoglu, Soft set theory and uni-int decision making, European Jr. of Operational Research (article in press, available online 12 May 2010)] and [N. Cagman, S. Enginoglu, Soft matrix theory and its decision making, Computers and Mathematics with Applications 59 (2010) 3308 - 3314.]. We prove (Theorem 8.1) that uni-int method of Cagman is equivalent to a core-support expression which is computationally far less expansive than uni-int. This also highlights some shortcomings in Cagman's uni-int method and thus motivates us to improve the method. We rst suggest an improvement in uni-int method and then pre...

  14. Process modeling for the Integrated Nonthermal Treatment System (INTS) study

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Brown, B.W.

    1997-04-01

    This report describes the process modeling done in support of the Integrated Nonthermal Treatment System (INTS) study. This study was performed to supplement the Integrated Thermal Treatment System (ITTS) study and comprises five conceptual treatment systems that treat DOE contract-handled mixed low-level wastes (MLLW) at temperatures of less than 350{degrees}F. ASPEN PLUS, a chemical process simulator, was used to model the systems. Nonthermal treatment systems were developed as part of the INTS study and include sufficient processing steps to treat the entire inventory of MLLW. The final result of the modeling is a process flowsheet with a detailed mass and energy balance. In contrast to the ITTS study, which modeled only the main treatment system, the INTS study modeled each of the various processing steps with ASPEN PLUS, release 9.1-1. Trace constituents, such as radionuclides and minor pollutant species, were not included in the calculations.

    MED-SUV proposes the development and implementation of a digital infrastructure for data access and for volcanic risk management aimed at applying the rationale of Supersites GEO initiative to Campi Flegrei/Vesuvius and Mt. Etna. It's fully recognized the clear need of an open data policy in order to ensure that data will be properly and in an ethical manner managed and can be used and accessed from its community. In MED-SUV there is a multitude of different partners with varying scientific, technical, legal and economical interests and therefore data and data products produced will be wide-ranging so it's necessary to set principles and legal arrangements. Within Europe several Directives and Regulations have brought into force which provide the leading guidelines in terms of the principle of openness to knowledge and access to scientific information. So in creating a suite policy the EC Supersites (MarSite and FutureVolc, under the EPOS umbrella) projects need to strength their efforts in defining a common data management strategy. In this presentation we will show the leading principles of the data policy, as for instance Open Access, flexibility of approach in order to harmonize the different methods of data distribution among its partners, Creative Commons licensing, data preservation and unique identification through Persistent Identifiers.

    Anne Simpson’s “Seven Paintings by Brueghel” is a crown of sonnets, a specific way of exploring the possibilities of the sonnet as a fixed form. Rather than dwelling on the noble history of this technical exploit, though, we are to observe the relation between Simpson’s text and the paintings by Brueghel she draws ideas from. We intend to examine in detail how Simpson paints her own images over Brueghel’s, while never losing sight of the Flemish painter’s stark imagery. Also important for our...

    2004-07-01

    This paper presents super-capacitors modeling using Artificial Neural Network (ANN). The principle consists on a black box nonlinear multiple inputs single output (MISO) model. The system inputs are temperature and current, the output is the super-capacitor voltage. The learning and the validation of the ANN model from experimental charge and discharge of super-capacitor establish the relationship between inputs and output. The learning and the validation of the ANN model use experimental results of 2700 F, 3700 F and a super-capacitor pack. Once the network is trained, the ANN model can predict the super-capacitor behaviour with temperature variations. The update parameters of the ANN model are performed thanks to Levenberg-Marquardt method in order to minimize the error between the output of the system and the predicted output. The obtained results with the ANN model of super-capacitor and experimental ones are in good agreement. (authors)

    Weighting model is the only valuation model of life cycle impact assessment(LCIA) profile now.It simplifies evaluation function into linear function,and makes the determination of weighting factor complicated.Therefore the valuation of LCIA profile is the most critical and controversial step in life cycle assessment(LCA).Development on valuation models,which are understood easily and accepted widely,is urgently needed in the field of LCA.The modeling approaches for the linear evaluation function were summed up.The modeling approaches for the nonlinear evaluation function were set up by function approximation theory,which include choosing preference products,forming preference data,establishing artificial neural network(ANN) and training ANN by preference data.By selecting 7 material products as preference product,experience was done with modeling approaches of the nonlinear evaluation function.The results show that the modeling approaches and valuation model of the nonlinear evaluation function are more practical than the weighting model.

    We present a large signal model for Si/SiGe HBTs using an Artificial Neural Network (ANN). The ANN is used to model the DC non-linearities of the intrinsic device. In this way, physical phenomena such as nonideal leakage currents and the Kirk effect can be modeled without time-consuming extraction. Capacitive nonlinearities are modeled by the well-known relationship between the capacitance and the junction voltage, ignoring the diffusion capacitance. By comparing ANN mode...

  7. GPS SATELLITE SIMULATOR SIGNAL ESTIMATION BASED ON ANN

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2005-01-01

    Multi-channel Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite signal simulator is used to provide realistic test signals for GPS receivers and navigation systems. In this paper, signals arriving the antenna of GPS receiver are analyzed from the viewpoint of simulator design. The estimation methods are focused of which several signal parameters are difficult to determine directly according to existing experiential models due to various error factors. Based on the theory of Artificial Neural Network (ANN), an approach is proposed to simulate signal propagation delay,carrier phase, power, and other parameters using ANN. The architecture of the hardware-in-the-loop test system is given. The ANN training and validation process is described. Experimental results demonstrate that the ANN designed can statistically simulate sample data in high fidelity.Therefore the computation of signal state based on this ANN can meet the design requirement,and can be directly applied to the development of multi-channel GPS satellite signal simulator.

    Recently, the CanMEDS model, which forms the basis for competency-based learning in both undergraduate and postgraduate training, has been renewed by the introduction of CanMEDS 2015. The most prominent change is the emphasis on leadership skills, which is also reflected by the name change for the role of 'manager' to 'leader'. The addition of milestones provides clearly defined targets for learning and assessment, which facilitates the monitoring of the progression in competence. Furthermore, CanMEDS 2015 strongly focusses on the overall coherence of the separate competencies. CanMEDS, designed as a model that helps to train young doctors to become good doctors, also helps us - the trainers - to become better doctors ourselves. PMID:27438391

    2003-01-01

    Correct estimation of the scour around vertical piles in the field exposed to oscillatory waves is very important for many offshore structures and coastal engineering projects. Conventional predictive formulas for the geometric properties of scour hole, however, are not able to provide sufficiently accurate results. Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) are simplified mathematical representation of the human brain. Three-layer normal feed-forward ANN is a powerful tool for input-output mapping and has been widely used in civil engineering problems. In this article the ANNs approach is used to predict the geometric properties of the scour around vertical pile. Two different ANNs including multilayer perceptron (with four different learning rules) and radial basis functions neural networks are used for this purpose. The results show that a three-layer normal feed-forward multilayer perceptron with quick propagation (QP) learning rule can predict the scour hole properties successfully.

    In accordance with the international Supersite initiative concept, the MED-SUV (MEDiterranean SUpersite Volcanoes) European project (http://med-suv.eu/) aims to enable long-term monitoring experiment in two relevant geologically active regions of Europe prone to natural hazards: Mt. Vesuvio/Campi Flegrei and Mt. Etna. This objective requires the integration of existing components, such as monitoring systems and data bases and novel sensors for the measurements of volcanic parameters. Moreover, MED-SUV is also a direct contribution to the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) as one the volcano Supersites recognized by the Group on Earth Observation (GEO). To achieve its goal, MED-SUV set up an advanced e-infrastructure allowing the discovery of and access to heterogeneous data for multidisciplinary applications, and the integration with external systems like GEOSS. The MED-SUV overall infrastructure is conceived as a three layer architecture with the lower layer (Data level) including the identified relevant data sources, the mid-tier (Supersite level) including components for mediation and harmonization , and the upper tier (Global level) composed of the systems that MED-SUV must serve, such as GEOSS and possibly other global/community systems. The Data level is mostly composed of existing data sources, such as space agencies satellite data archives, the UNAVCO system, the INGV-Rome data service. They share data according to different specifications for metadata, data and service interfaces, and cannot be changed. Thus, the only relevant MED-SUV activity at this level was the creation of a MED-SUV local repository based on Web Accessible Folder (WAF) technology, deployed in the INGV site in Catania, and hosting in-situ data and products collected and generated during the project. The Supersite level is at the core of the MED-SUV architecture, since it must mediate between the disparate data sources in the layer below, and provide a harmonized view to

    Full Text Available Medical research and publications are the back-bone for advancing the medical field. We identified the PubMed medical publications that are affiliated with Libya to shed some light on the contribution of this country’s medical community to the PubMed database. All publications affiliated with Libya in the PubMed were counted over a five year period ending December 2006. We also used the same method to obtain data on the PubMed medical publications from Tunisia, Morocco and Yemen. Tunisia had the largest number of PubMed publications among the studied countries: 20.4 publications per million population per year and 7.2 publications per year per one billion US$ GDP. Libya had much fewer publications: 2.4 publications per million population per year and 0.4 publications per one billion US$ GDP. The citation frequency for Libyan published research was very low compared to Tunisian and Moroccan related research. Conclusion: This preliminary analysis shows that medical research output in Libya is about twenty times less than in other countries with similar backgrounds, and that it needs to be enhanced.

  4. Evolution et perspectives de la demande intérieure de corps gras en Afrique subsaharienne

    2000-03-01

    Full Text Available Si les corps gras peuvent constituer l’une des clés de voûte de l’agriculture de certains pays émergents (Malaisie, Brésil, ils ne font l’objet, en Afrique, que de très peu d’intérêt. Rarement cités parmi les produits de première nécessité, éclatés entre différentes filières (palme, coton, arachide, les corps gras ne se situent au cœur des préoccupations des décideurs qu’en période de crise tandis que, de leur côté, les bailleurs de fonds ne leur portent qu’une attention modérée, le plus souvent ponctuelle et sans vision stratégique. Dans les années 60, c’est-à-dire à l’époque des indépendances, le continent africain disposait pourtant de sérieux atouts, puisqu’il dominait largement le marché mondial des produits du palmier (huile et palmistes et était encore bien placé sur celui des produits de l’arachide (huile et tourteaux. Des pays comme le Nigeria ou l’ex-Zaïre disposaient d’un potentiel alors jugé prometteur, apte à conforter leurs positions commerciales. Mais le pétrole pour le premier et les crises politiques à répétition pour le second ont assez rapidement réduit à néant les espoirs que l’on pouvait légitimement placer dans l’agriculture de ces pays. Si, à partir des années 70, le soja, en Amérique latine, et l’huile de palme, en Asie du Sud-est, ont réussi à s’imposer sur un marché mondial en pleine expansion, l’Afrique, qui n’était dépourvue ni de terres, ni de main-d’œuvre, ni des acquis d’une recherche globalement performante, s’est repliée sur elle-même. Les investissements non négligeables, réalisés dans un premier temps en Côte d’Ivoire, au Cameroun et dans quelques autres pays, étaient financés par les États eux-mêmes à travers des sociétés publiques sous-capitalisées et rarement gérées dans une perspective de maîtrise des coûts, à qui était assigné un objectif prioritaire de satisfaction des besoins int

  14. RGANN: An Efficient Algorithm to Extract Rules from ANNs

    CERN Document Server

    Kamruzzaman, S M

    2010-01-01

    This paper describes an efficient rule generation algorithm, called rule generation from artificial neural networks (RGANN) to generate symbolic rules from ANNs. Classification rules are sought in many areas from automatic knowledge acquisition to data mining and ANN rule extraction. This is because classification rules possess some attractive features. They are explicit, understandable and verifiable by domain experts, and can be modified, extended and passed on as modular knowledge. A standard three-layer feedforward ANN is the basis of the algorithm. A four-phase training algorithm is proposed for backpropagation learning. Comparing them to the symbolic rules generated by other methods supports explicitness of the generated rules. Generated rules are comparable with other methods in terms of number of rules, average number of conditions for a rule, and predictive accuracy. Extensive experimental studies on several benchmarks classification problems, including breast cancer, wine, season, golf-playing, and ...

    2015-04-01

    The MED-SUV project aims to implement a digital e-infrastructure for data access in order to promote the monitoring and study of key volcanic regions prone to volcanic hazards, and thus improve hazard assessment, according to the rationale of Supersite GEO initiative to Vesuvius- Campi Flegrei and Mt Etna, currently identified as Permanent Supersites. The present study focuses on the life cycle of MED-SUV data generated in the first period of the project and highlights the managing approach, as well as the crucial steps to be implemented for ensuring that data will be properly and ethically managed and can be used and accessed from both MED-SUV and the external community. The process is conceived outlining how research data being handled as the project progresses, describing what data are collected, processed or generated and how these data are going to be shared and made available through Open Access. Data cycle begins with their generation and ends with the deposit in the digital infrastructure, its key series of stages through which MED-SUV data passes are Collection, Data citation, Categorization of data, Approval procedure, Registration of datasets, Application of licensing models, and PID assignment. This involves a combination of procedures and practices taking into account the scientific core mission and the priorities of the project as well as the potential legal issues related to the management and protection of the Intellectual Property. We believe that the implementation of this process constitutes a significant encouragement in MED-SUV data sharing and as a consequence a better understanding on the volcanic processes, hazard assessment and a better integration with other Supersites projects.

    2016-04-01

    Aside the scientific, technical and financial aspects managed by the "Project Management" Work Package (WP1), the great challenge and more time consuming task of this WP has surely been the definition and application of some strategic guidelines crucial to trace the project right path to its final success and for the project outcome sustainability after month 36. In particular, given that one of the main objectives of MED-SUV is that to be compliant with the GEO initiative, particularly concerning the data sharing, great efforts have been made by WP1 at first to define the MED-SUV Data Policy Guidelines, and currently to make it suitable for the EU Supersites. At present, WP1 is also dealing with the exploitation of the achieved foreground among the project's participant and to define a Memorandum of Understanding to sustain the monitoring systems and e-infrastructure developed in the project framework. Whilst the Data Policy guidelines document was implemented in the first year of MED-SUV, WP1 is now focused on the last deliverable 'Strategic and Legal deliverables', which includes the remaining issues. To the aim, WP1 has strategically separated the Exploitation of Foreground document preparation from the Memorandum of Understanding definition. The Exploitation of Foreground process has regarded the identification of Foreground, the exploitable results, the purpose of such Foreground, the collection of information from either the scientific community of MED-SUV or industrial participants; to this aim WP1 circulated an ad hoc questionnaire to put together information on (the) every kind of MED-SUV outcome, on their owners, on the kind of ownership (single/joint), on the outcome exploitation, and on proposals for its sustainability. While the first information will allow us to prepare the final Exploitation Agreement among the project's participant, the information on the exploitation of the outcome and likely sustainability proposals will contribute to the

  6. Hydro-Quebec MED (Diametric Expansion Measurement)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This paper describes a method for measuring the diametral expansion of the pressure tubes at Gentilly-2 nuclear generating station. The aim is to describe the solutions, the calibration tools, and the analytical methods developed for the project. To measure the diametral expansion of the pressure tubes, Hydro-Quebec modified the SLARette device and integrated a new module called MED. The measurement system is made up of three parts: 1. An inspection head, the MED (Hydro-Quebec) module, which has five ultrasonic probes that determine the distance between the inspections head and pressure tube. Measurements are always done under water and they are used to determine the diameter and thickness of the pressure tubes. 2. Tomoscan III acquisition system by R/D Tech to scan the five probes and save the data in an A-scan file. 3. An Analytical software: LogaMED (Hydro-Quebec). The advanced delivery machine (ADM) equipped with a SLARette device is primarily an axial inspection system. The ADM and SLARette device are not capable of performing an axial/rotational inspection and have no centering system. However, measuring the diametral creep requires spiral scanning and a centered tool. A method that would allow the walls of the tubes to be measured in an uncentered way and to recalculate the diameters as if the device were centered has been designed. An automatic analytical software program (LogaMED) was designed to perform the calculation. LogaMED reads A-scan file data and provides the user with information on diameter and thickness. Two methods can be used to determine the diameter. The first consists in moving lengthwise through the tube. Several passes can be done at different angles and the results compiled in LogaMED. The second method is used to measure the diameter at every angle with an angular displacement (3600 rotation). Two of the main problems that had to be resolved were the calibration of the calculation parameters and the determination of measurement

    2016-06-01

    In this study, activity of some Schiff bases as aluminum corrosion inhibitor was investigated using artificial neural network (ANN). Hence, corrosion inhibition efficiency of Schiff bases (in any type) were gathered from different references. Then these molecules were drawn and optimized in Hyperchem software. Molecular descriptors generating and descriptors selection were fulfilled by Dragon software and principal component analysis (PCA) method, respectively. These structural descriptors along with environmental descriptors (ambient temperature, time of exposure, pH and the concentration of inhibitor) were used as input variables. Furthermore, aluminum corrosion inhibition efficiency was used as output variable. Experimental data were split into three sets: training set (for model building) and test set (for model validation) and simulation (for general model). Modeling was performed by Multiple linear regression (MLR) methods and artificial neural network (ANN). The results obtained in linear models showed poor correlation between experimental and theoretical data. However nonlinear model presented satisfactory results. Higher correlation coefficient of ANN (R > 0.9) revealed that ANN can be successfully applied for prediction of aluminum corrosion inhibitor efficiency of Schiff bases in different environmental conditions.

    Full Text Available The aim of this work was to optimize the biomass production by Bifidobacterium bifidum 255 using the response surface methodology (RSM and artificial neural network (ANN both coupled with GA. To develop the empirical model for the yield of probiotic bacteria, additional carbon and nitrogen content, inoculum size, age, temperature and pH were selected as the parameters. Models were developed using ¼ fractional factorial design (FFD of the experiments with the selected parameters. The normalized percentage mean squared error obtained from the ANN and RSM models were 0.05 and 0.1%, respectively. Regression coefficient (R² of the ANN model showed higher prediction accuracy compared to that of the RSM model. The empirical yield model (for both ANN and RSM obtained were utilized as the objective functions to be maximized with the help of genetic algorithm. The optimal conditions for the maximal biomass yield were 37.4 °C, pH 7.09, inoculum volume 1.97 ml, inoculum age 58.58 h, carbon content 41.74% (w/v, and nitrogen content 46.23% (w/v. The work reported is a novel concept of combining the statistical modeling and evolutionary optimization for an improved yield of cell mass of B. bifidum 255.

    This short document reports on the second data release of the Kepler-INT Survey (KIS, Greiss et al. 2012). The Kepler field, a 116 sq.deg region of the Cygnus and Lyra constellations, is the target of the most intensive search for transiting planets to date. The Kepler mission provides superior time series photometry, with an enormous impact on all areas of stellar variability. The initial release catalogue (Greiss et al. 2012) concerned data taken between May and August 2011, using the Isaac Newton Telescope on the island of La Palma. Four broadband filters were used, U, g, r, i, as well as one narrowband one, H-alpha, reaching down to a limit of ~20th mag in the Vega system. Observations covering ~50 sq.deg passed our quality control thresholds and constituted the first data release. Here we report on the second data release, covering an additional ~63 sq.deg of the Kepler field. We apply the exact same quality control criteria and photometric calibration as in the initial release catalogue (see Greiss et a...

    2011-02-01

    Position information in indoor environments can be procured using diverse approaches. Due to the ubiquitous presence of WLAN networks, positioning techniques in these environments are the scope of intense research. This paper explores two strategies for space partitioning when utilizing cascade-connected Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) structures for indoor WLAN positioning. A set of cascade-connected ANN structures with different space partitioning strategies are compared mutually and to the single ANN structure. The benefits of using cascade-connected ANNs structures are shown and discussed in terms of the size of the environment, number of subspaces and partitioning strategy. The optimal cascade-connected ANN structures with space partitioning show up to 50% decrease in median error and up to 12% decrease in the average error with respect to the single ANN model. Finally, the single ANN and the optimal cascade-connected ANN model are compared against other well-known positioning techniques. PMID:21243727

    2006-11-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background The project aims to create an alternative search interface for MEDLINE/PubMed that may provide assistance to the novice user and added convenience to the advanced user. An earlier version of the project was the 'Slider Interface for MEDLINE/PubMed searches' (SLIM which provided JavaScript slider bars to control search parameters. In this new version, recent developments in Web-based technologies were implemented. These changes may prove to be even more valuable in enhancing user interactivity through client-side manipulation and management of results. Results PubMed Interact is a Web-based MEDLINE/PubMed search application built with HTML, JavaScript and PHP. It is implemented on a Windows Server 2003 with Apache 2.0.52, PHP 4.4.1 and MySQL 4.1.18. PHP scripts provide the backend engine that connects with E-Utilities and parses XML files. JavaScript manages client-side functionalities and converts Web pages into interactive platforms using dynamic HTML (DHTML, Document Object Model (DOM tree manipulation and Ajax methods. With PubMed Interact, users can limit searches with JavaScript slider bars, preview result counts, delete citations from the list, display and add related articles and create relevance lists. Many interactive features occur at client-side, which allow instant feedback without reloading or refreshing the page resulting in a more efficient user experience. Conclusion PubMed Interact is a highly interactive Web-based search application for MEDLINE/PubMed that explores recent trends in Web technologies like DOM tree manipulation and Ajax. It may become a valuable technical development for online medical search applications.

  6. Pourquoi une revue scientifique internationale portant sur l’intégration des TIC en pédagogie universitaire ?

    Full Text Available Quelques années après avoir réalisé un film destiné à l’éducation en 1911, Thomas Edison a dit : « Les livres seront incessamment désuets. Les étudiants apprendront bientôt à travers leurs yeux. Il est possible d’enseigner toutes les facettes du savoir humain par le film. Notre système d’éducation sera complètement transformé d’ici dix ans ». Depuis la promesse d’Edison de révolutionner l’enseignement par le film, les expériences d’intégration des technologies en pédagogie universitaire ont connu plusieurs développements : l’utilisation du téléphone, de la radio, de la télévision, de la vidéo, de l’ordinateur, ainsi que des technologies de l’information et de la communication (TIC. Toutefois, depuis le début des années 1980, où, pour la seule fois de son histoire, Time Magazine reconnaissait l’importance de l’ordinateur en octroyant la palme de « personnalité » de l’année à une machine, c’est surtout l’ordinateur et Internet qui connaissent une popularité grandissante en pédagogie universitaire. Dans l’introduction du numéro, le rédacteur en chef de Time Magazine, John A. Meyers, écrivait : « Plusieurs candidats humains auraient pu représenter 1982, mais aucun ne symbolisera autant l’année qui vient de passer, ni ne sera considéré dans l’histoire comme aussi marquant qu’une machine : l’ordinateur ». De nos jours, les TIC, susceptibles de contribuer à la démocratisation de l’accès au savoir, sont d’une puissance et d’une convivialité que ne pouvait imaginer Edison. Elles combinent à la fois les textes, le son, l’image, l’interactivité, la programmation ; elles peuvent « enregistrer » et retransmettre aux quatre coins du globe. La société du savoir « promise dans les années 1970, vantée dans les années 1980 et envisagée dans les années 1990 avec un respect mêlé de crainte et d’incrédulité » est devenue, au XXIe siècle, une r

    The present study investigates the applicability of linear regression and ANN models for estimating daily reference evapotranspiration (ET0) at Tirupati, Nellore, Rajahmundry, Anakapalli and Rajendranagar regions of Andhra Pradesh. The climatic parameters influencing daily ET0 were identified through multiple and partial correlation analysis. The daily temperature, wind velocity, relative humidity and sunshine hours mostly influenced the study area in the daily ET0 estimation. Linear regression models in terms of the climatic parameters influencing the region and, optimal neural network architectures considering these influencing climatic parameters as input parameters were developed. The models' performance in the estimation of ET0 was evaluated with that estimated by FAO-56 Penman-Montieth method. The regression models showed a satisfactory performance in the daily ET0 estimation for the regions selected for the present study. The optimal ANN (4,4,1) models, however, consistently showed an improved performance over regression models.

    Full Text Available The Finnish reception of the translations of two youth books by Aidi Vallik is analysed on the basis of published reviews, web comments and judgements, and the opinions expressed by a class on Estonian children’s literature held at the University of Oulu in 2008. The introductory part touches upon the concepts of young adult literature and youth literature and, briefly, upon some specific traits of youth literature which are important from the perspective of translation and reception. The analysis of the material revealed that the readers would mainly argue against the fi nal resolutions of the stories as those seem to lay too much emphasis on the adult viewpoint and the didactic aspect. The language use was also found problematic. Notably, in “How are you, Ann?” the main character’s narrative seemed too literary, for some readers, especially in comparison with the colourful diary of Ann’s mother, which makes Ann less interesting than her mother. The general attitude, especially for the first book, was nevertheless positive enough. Despite the reservations typical of youth literature the books of Ann were found interesting by most readers, providing an idea of Estonian youth problems and youth literature.

  10. Using ANNs to predict cooling requirements for residential buildings

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Karatasou, S.; Santamouris, M.; Geros, V. [University of Athens (Greece). Physics Dept.

    2004-07-01

    Artificial neural networks (ANNs) have been used for the prediction of cooling loads of residential buildings in Athens, Greece. The investigation was performed for the summer period, where for Southern European countries, short time cooling load forecasting in residential buildings with lead times from 1 hour to 7 days can play a key role in the economic and energy efficient operation of cooling appliances. The objective of this work is to produce a simulation algorithm, using ANNs, capable to forecast the following 24-hour cooling load profiles. Reliable cooling consumption measurements are required but are not usually available for residential buildings. State-ofthe- art building simulation software, TRNSYS, was used to calculate energy demand for cooling for five selected apartments in Athens, Greece, using detailed building data (geometry, wall construction, occupancy etc) and Athens climate conditions. These data are used to train artificial neural networks in order to generate the relationship between selected inputs and the desired output, the next day building energy consumption for cooling. A multiplayer perceptron architecture using the standard back-propagation learning algorithm has been applied yielded to satisfactory results and the conclusion that when ANNs are trained on reliable data they can simulate the behavior of the building, thus they can be effectively used to predict future performance.

  11. Coupling SWAT and ANN models for enhanced daily streamflow prediction

    Science.gov (United States)

    Noori, Navideh; Kalin, Latif

    2016-02-01

    To improve daily flow prediction in unmonitored watersheds a hybrid model was developed by combining a quasi-distributed watershed model and artificial neural network (ANN). Daily streamflow data from 29 nearby watersheds in and around the city of Atlanta, Southeastern United States, with leave-one-site-out jackknifing technique were used to build the flow predictive models during warm and cool seasons. Daily streamflow was first simulated with the Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) and then the SWAT simulated baseflow and stormflow were used as inputs to ANN. Out of the total 29 test watersheds, 62% and 83% of them had Nash-Sutcliffe values above 0.50 during the cool and warm seasons, respectively (considered good or better). As the percent forest cover or the size of test watershed increased, the performances of the models gradually decreased during both warm and cool seasons. This indicates that the developed models work better in urbanized watersheds. In addition, SWAT and SWAT Calibration Uncertainty Procedure (SWAT-CUP) program were run separately for each station to compare the flow prediction accuracy of the hybrid approach to SWAT. Only 31% of the sites during the calibration and 34% of validation runs had ENASH values ⩾0.50. This study showed that coupling ANN with semi-distributed models can lead to improved daily streamflow predictions in ungauged watersheds.

    The MedAustron Ion therapy center will be constructed in Wiener Neustadt (Austria) in the vicinity of Vienna. Its accelerator complex consists of four ion sources, a linear accelerator, a synchrotron and a beam delivery system to the three medical treatment rooms and to the research irradiation room. The ion sources shall deliver beams of H31+, C4+ and light ions with utmost reliability and stability. This paper describes the features of the ion sources presently planned for the MedAustron facility; such as ion source main parameters, gas injection, temperature control and cooling systems. A dedicated beam diagnostics technique is proposed in order to characterize ECR ions beams; in the first drift region after the ion source, a fraction of the mixed beam is selected via moveable aperture. With standard beam diagnostics, we then aim to produce position-dependant observables such as ion-current density, beam energy distribution and emittance for each charge states to be compared to simulations of ECR e-heating...

    Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing have become key technology tools for the collection, storage and analysis of spatially referenced data. Industries that utilise these spatial technologies include agriculture, forestry, mining, market research as well as the environmental analysis . Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) is a coherent active sensor operating in the microwave band which exploits relative motion between antenna and target in order to obtain a finer spatial resolution in the flight direction exploiting the Doppler effect. SAR have wide applications in Remote Sensing such as cartography, surface deformation detection, forest cover mapping, urban planning, disasters monitoring , surveillance etc… The utilization of satellite remote sensing and GIS technology for this applications has proven to be a powerful and effective tool for environmental monitoring. Remote sensing techniques are often less costly and time-consuming for large geographic areas compared to conventional methods, moreover GIS technology provides a flexible environment for, analyzing and displaying digital data from various sources necessary for classification, change detection and database development. The aim of this work si to illustrate the potential of COSMO-SkyMed data and SAR applications in a GIS environment, in particular a demostration of the operational use of COSMO-SkyMed SAR data and GIS in real cases will be provided for what concern DEM validation, river basin estimation, flood mapping and landslide monitoring.

  5. Groundwater Pollution Source Identification using Linked ANN-Optimization Model

    Ayaz, Md; Srivastava, Rajesh; Jain, Ashu

    2014-05-01

    Groundwater is the principal source of drinking water in several parts of the world. Contamination of groundwater has become a serious health and environmental problem today. Human activities including industrial and agricultural activities are generally responsible for this contamination. Identification of groundwater pollution source is a major step in groundwater pollution remediation. Complete knowledge of pollution source in terms of its source characteristics is essential to adopt an effective remediation strategy. Groundwater pollution source is said to be identified completely when the source characteristics - location, strength and release period - are known. Identification of unknown groundwater pollution source is an ill-posed inverse problem. It becomes more difficult for real field conditions, when the lag time between the first reading at observation well and the time at which the source becomes active is not known. We developed a linked ANN-Optimization model for complete identification of an unknown groundwater pollution source. The model comprises two parts- an optimization model and an ANN model. Decision variables of linked ANN-Optimization model contain source location and release period of pollution source. An objective function is formulated using the spatial and temporal data of observed and simulated concentrations, and then minimized to identify the pollution source parameters. In the formulation of the objective function, we require the lag time which is not known. An ANN model with one hidden layer is trained using Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm to find the lag time. Different combinations of source locations and release periods are used as inputs and lag time is obtained as the output. Performance of the proposed model is evaluated for two and three dimensional case with error-free and erroneous data. Erroneous data was generated by adding uniformly distributed random error (error level 0-10%) to the analytically computed concentration

This model takes into account the adsorbent bed, condenser and the evaporator characteristics as well as the working pair (Activated carbon /methanol properties and the climate conditions. The supervised learning of the ANN is based on a genetic algorithm (GA supported by an elitist strategy. Input, hidden and output layers model the topology of the ANN. The weights of the synapses and the biases for hidden and output nodes are used as design variables in the ANN learning process. The mean relative error between experimental (extracted from literature and simulated results are used to monitor the learning process. The optimal ANN obtained after learning is tested. This approach of ANN learning based on GA presents low mean relative errors in learning and testingphases.

  14. Wavelet and ANN Based Relaying for Power Transformer Protection

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2007-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper presents an efficient wavelet and neural network (WNN based algorithm for distinguishing magnetizing inrush currents from internal fault currents in three phase power transformers. The wavelet transform is applied first to decompose the current signals of the power transformer into a series of detailed wavelet components. The values of the detailed coefficients obtained can accurately discriminate between an internal fault and magnetizing inrush currents in power transformers. The detailed coefficients are further used to train an Artificial Neural Network (ANN. The trained ANN clearly distinguishes an internal fault current from magnetizing inrush current. A typical 750 MVA, 27/420KV, ∆/Y power transformer connected between a 27KV source at the sending end and a 420KV transmission line connected to an infinite bus power system at the receiving end were simulated using PSCAD/EMTDC software. The generated data were used by the MATLAB software to test the performance of the proposed technique. The simulation results obtained show that the new algorithm is more reliable and accurate. It provides a high operating sensitivity for internal faults and remains stable for inrush currents of the power transformers.

  15. A neutron spectrometry and dosimetry computer tool based on ANN

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In the neutron spectrometry and dosimetry research areas by means of the Bonner spheres spectrometric system utilizing classical approaches, such as Monte Carlo, parametrization and iterative procedures, the weight, time consuming procedure, the need to use an unfolding procedure, the low resolution spectrum, and the need to use the neutron fluence-to-dose conversion coefficients for calculating the equivalent doses are some drawbacks which these approaches offer. Each of the mentioned difficulties has motivated the development of complementary procedures such as maximum entropy, genetic algorithms and artificial neural networks. The use of neural networks to unfold neutron spectra and to calculate equivalent doses from the count rates measured with BSS system has become in an alternative procedure, which has been applied with success, however, it is observed that doesn't exist computer tools based on ANN technology to unfold neutron spectra and to calculate equivalent doses. In this work a customized front end user interface software application, called Neutron Spectrometry and Dosimetry by means of Artificial Neural Networks (NSDANN) based on ANN technology, is presented, which is capable to unfold neutron spectra and to simultaneously calculate 13 equivalent doses, by using only the count rates of a BBS system as input, in just a few seconds.

    Santhosh, V. K.; Roy, B. K.

    2013-01-01

    Design of an intelligent level measurement technique by Capacitance Level Sensor (CLS) using an Optimized Artificial Neural Network (OANN) is discussed in this paper. The objectives of the present work are (i) to extend the linearity range of measurement to 100% of the full scale, (ii) to make the measurement technique adaptive of variation in permittivity of liquid, liquid temperature, and to achieve objectives (i) and (ii) using an optimized neural network. An optimized ANN is considered by comparing various algorithms, transfer functions of neuron, and number of hidden layers based on minimum mean square error (MSE). The output of CLS is capacitance. A data conversion unit is used to convert it to voltage. A suitable optimized ANN is added, in place of conventional calibration circuit, in cascade to data conversion unit. The proposed technique provides linear relationship of the overall system over the full input range and makes it adaptive of variation in liquid permittivity and/or temperature. When an unknown level is tested with an arbitrary liquid permittivity, and temperature, the proposed technique has measured the level correctly. Results show that the proposed scheme has fulfilled the objectives.

    This paper will introduce Mars Entry Descent and Landing Instrumentation (MEDLI2) on NASA's Mars2020 mission. Mars2020 is a flagship NASA mission with science and technology objectives to help answer questions about possibility of life on Mars as well as to demonstrate technologies for future human expedition. Mars2020 is scheduled for launch in 2020. MEDLI2 is a suite of instruments embedded in the heatshield and backshell thermal protection systems of Mars2020 entry vehicle. The objectives of MEDLI2 are to gather critical aerodynamics, aerothermodynamics and TPS performance data during EDL phase of the mission. MEDLI2 builds up the success of MEDLI flight instrumentation on Mars Science Laboratory mission in 2012. MEDLI instrumentation suite measured surface pressure and TPS temperature on the heatshield during MSL entry into Mars. MEDLI data has since been used for unprecedented reconstruction of aerodynamic drag, vehicle attitude, in-situ atmospheric density, aerothermal heating, transition to turbulence, in-depth TPS performance and TPS ablation. [1,2] In addition to validating predictive models, MEDLI data has highlighted extra margin available in the MSL forebody TPS, which can potentially be used to reduce vehicle parasitic mass. MEDLI2 expands the scope of instrumentation by focusing on quantities of interest not addressed in MEDLI suite. The type the sensors are expanded and their layout on the TPS modified to meet these new objectives. The paper will provide key motivation and governing requirements that drive the choice and the implementation of the new sensor suite. The implementation considerations of sensor selection, qualification, and demonstration of minimal risk to the host mission will be described. The additional challenges associated with mechanical accommodation, electrical impact, data storage and retrieval for MEDLI2 system, which extends sensors to backshell will also be described.

  3. Initial characterization of the Pf-Int recombinase from the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Mehdi Ghorbal

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: Genetic variation is an essential means of evolution and adaptation in many organisms in response to environmental change. Certain DNA alterations can be carried out by site-specific recombinases (SSRs that fall into two families: the serine and the tyrosine recombinases. SSRs are seldom found in eukaryotes. A gene homologous to a tyrosine site-specific recombinase has been identified in the genome of Plasmodium falciparum. The sequence is highly conserved among five other members of Plasmodia. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: The predicted open reading frame encodes for a ∼57 kDa protein containing a C-terminal domain including the putative tyrosine recombinase conserved active site residues R-H-R-(H/W-Y. The N-terminus has the typical alpha-helical bundle and potentially a mixed alpha-beta domain resembling that of λ-Int. Pf-Int mRNA is expressed differentially during the P. falciparum erythrocytic life stages, peaking in the schizont stage. Recombinant Pf-Int and affinity chromatography of DNA from genomic or synthetic origin were used to identify potential DNA targets after sequencing or micro-array hybridization. Interestingly, the sequences captured also included highly variable subtelomeric genes such as var, rif, and stevor sequences. Electrophoretic mobility shift assays with DNA were carried out to verify Pf-Int/DNA binding. Finally, Pf-Int knock-out parasites were created in order to investigate the biological role of Pf-Int. CONCLUSIONS/SIGNIFICANCE: Our data identify for the first time a malaria parasite gene with structural and functional features of recombinases. Pf-Int may bind to and alter DNA, either in a sequence specific or in a non-specific fashion, and may contribute to programmed or random DNA rearrangements. Pf-Int is the first molecular player identified with a potential role in genome plasticity in this pathogen. Finally, Pf-Int knock-out parasite is viable showing no detectable impact on blood stage

  12. Tight regulation of the intS gene of the KplE1 prophage: a new paradigm for integrase gene regulation.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Gaël Panis

    2010-10-01

    Full Text Available Temperate phages have the ability to maintain their genome in their host, a process called lysogeny. For most, passive replication of the phage genome relies on integration into the host's chromosome and becoming a prophage. Prophages remain silent in the absence of stress and replicate passively within their host genome. However, when stressful conditions occur, a prophage excises itself and resumes the viral cycle. Integration and excision of phage genomes are mediated by regulated site-specific recombination catalyzed by tyrosine and serine recombinases. In the KplE1 prophage, site-specific recombination is mediated by the IntS integrase and the TorI recombination directionality factor (RDF. We previously described a sub-family of temperate phages that is characterized by an unusual organization of the recombination module. Consequently, the attL recombination region overlaps with the integrase promoter, and the integrase and RDF genes do not share a common activated promoter upon lytic induction as in the lambda prophage. In this study, we show that the intS gene is tightly regulated by its own product as well as by the TorI RDF protein. In silico analysis revealed that overlap of the attL region with the integrase promoter is widely encountered in prophages present in prokaryotic genomes, suggesting a general occurrence of negatively autoregulated integrase genes. The prediction that these integrase genes are negatively autoregulated was biologically assessed by studying the regulation of several integrase genes from two different Escherichia coli strains. Our results suggest that the majority of tRNA-associated integrase genes in prokaryotic genomes could be autoregulated and that this might be correlated with the recombination efficiency as in KplE1. The consequences of this unprecedented regulation for excessive recombination are discussed.

  14. Hybrid LSA-ANN Based Home Energy Management Scheduling Controller for Residential Demand Response Strategy

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Maytham S. Ahmed

    2016-09-01

    Full Text Available Demand response (DR program can shift peak time load to off-peak time, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions and allowing energy conservation. In this study, the home energy management scheduling controller of the residential DR strategy is proposed using the hybrid lightning search algorithm (LSA-based artificial neural network (ANN to predict the optimal ON/OFF status for home appliances. Consequently, the scheduled operation of several appliances is improved in terms of cost savings. In the proposed approach, a set of the most common residential appliances are modeled, and their activation is controlled by the hybrid LSA-ANN based home energy management scheduling controller. Four appliances, namely, air conditioner, water heater, refrigerator, and washing machine (WM, are developed by Matlab/Simulink according to customer preferences and priority of appliances. The ANN controller has to be tuned properly using suitable learning rate value and number of nodes in the hidden layers to schedule the appliances optimally. Given that finding proper ANN tuning parameters is difficult, the LSA optimization is hybridized with ANN to improve the ANN performances by selecting the optimum values of neurons in each hidden layer and learning rate. Therefore, the ON/OFF estimation accuracy by ANN can be improved. Results of the hybrid LSA-ANN are compared with those of hybrid particle swarm optimization (PSO based ANN to validate the developed algorithm. Results show that the hybrid LSA-ANN outperforms the hybrid PSO based ANN. The proposed scheduling algorithm can significantly reduce the peak-hour energy consumption during the DR event by up to 9.7138% considering four appliances per 7-h period.

    Full Text Available Voltage stability has recently become a challenging issue in many power systems. There are different methods used to study the voltage collapse phenomenon but most of them take significant computation time and are not suitable for on-line applications. Fast voltage stability assessment tools are required in order to ensure the secureoperation of the present day power systems, as voltage collapse can occur quite abruptly in systems. Therefore a new ANN based on-line approach that requires minimum input for estimation of voltage collapse proximity indicator for each critical bus under normal and contingent conditions is developed in this paper. Test results onIEEE-14 bus system are presented to show its computational accuracy.

  20. The shape of a woman's life: Lady Anne Barnard's Memoir

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    M. Lenta

    1993-05-01

    Full Text Available In her old age, Lady Anne Barnard revised the diaries and letters which remained from her life in Scotland, London, and at the Cape. She shaped part of these records into a six-volume Memoir and since a man's memoir would concentrate attention on his public life and achievements, she cast it into a shape which recalls that of the female’ novel of the eighteenth century. She therefore presents her rejection of the lifestyle of her family, that of impoverished Scottish aristocrats, and her move to London, as a quest for a suitable marriage. This view of her life was not, however, entirely congenial to her: she had a strong sense of her achievements as an autonomous individual, rather than as the lesser partner in a marriage, and although the Memoir ends with her marriage, there is much evidence in it of her pride in having originated and achieved for herself a new lifestyle.

    Identification of the pollution sources and understanding the processes related to runoff generation and pollution transportation is effective for the water quality management and selection of the Best Management Practices. The ANNualized AGricultural Non-Point Source (AnnAGNPS) model was applied to a watershed in Southern Ontario to evaluate the hydrology and sediment component from the non-point sources. The model was run for two years (1998 to 1999); one year's data was used to calibrate and the second year's data was used for validation purposes. The model has under predicted runoff amount and over predicted the sediment yield. However, the simulated runoff and sediment yield compared fairly well with the observed data indicating that the model had an acceptable performance in simulation of runoff and sediment. The study is still in progress to assess its performance for estimation of TMDL and improvements needed for the model to use under Ontario conditions. PMID:16594345

    Summary: We present iAnn, an open source community-driven platform for dissemination of life science events, such as courses, conferences and workshops. iAnn allows automatic visualisation and integration of customised event reports. A central repository lies at the core of the platform: curators add submitted events, and these are subsequently accessed via web services. Thus, once an iAnn widget is incorporated into a website, it permanently shows timely relevant information as if it were native to the remote site. At the same time, announcements submitted to the repository are automatically disseminated to all portals that query the system. To facilitate the visualization of announcements, iAnn provides powerful filtering options and views, integrated in Google Maps and Google Calendar. All iAnn widgets are freely available.

  19. The Arabidopsis mediator complex subunits MED16, MED14, and MED2 regulate mediator and RNA polymerase II recruitment to CBF-responsive cold-regulated genes.

    2014-01-01

    The Mediator16 (MED16; formerly termed SENSITIVE TO FREEZING6 [SFR6]) subunit of the plant Mediator transcriptional coactivator complex regulates cold-responsive gene expression in Arabidopsis thaliana, acting downstream of the C-repeat binding factor (CBF) transcription factors to recruit the core Mediator complex to cold-regulated genes. Here, we use loss-of-function mutants to show that RNA polymerase II recruitment to CBF-responsive cold-regulated genes requires MED16, MED2, and MED14 subunits. Transcription of genes known to be regulated via CBFs binding to the C-repeat motif/drought-responsive element promoter motif requires all three Mediator subunits, as does cold acclimation-induced freezing tolerance. In addition, these three subunits are required for low temperature-induced expression of some other, but not all, cold-responsive genes, including genes that are not known targets of CBFs. Genes inducible by darkness also required MED16 but required a different combination of Mediator subunits for their expression than the genes induced by cold. Together, our data illustrate that plants control transcription of specific genes through the action of subsets of Mediator subunits; the specific combination defined by the nature of the stimulus but also by the identity of the gene induced.

  15. Influenza virus vaccine live intranasal--MedImmune vaccines: CAIV-T, influenza vaccine live intranasal.

    Science.gov (United States)

    2003-01-01

    MedImmune Vaccines (formerly Aviron) has developed a cold-adapted live influenza virus vaccine [FluMist] that can be administered by nasal spray. FluMist is the first live virus influenza vaccine and also the first nasally administered vaccine to be marketed in the US. The vaccine will be formulated to contain live attenuated (att) influenza virus reassortants of the strains recommended by the US Public Health Service for each 'flu season. The vaccine is termed cold-adapted (ca) because the virus has been adapted to replicate efficiently at 25 degrees C in the nasal passages, which are below normal body temperature. The strains used in the seasonal vaccine will also be made temperature sensitive (ts) so that their replication is restricted at 37 degrees C (Type B strains) and 39 degrees C (Type A strains). The combined effect of the antigenic properties and the att, ca and ts phenotypes of the influenza strains contained in the vaccine enables the viruses to replicate in the nasopharynx to produce protective immunity. The original formulation of FluMist requires freezer storage throughout distribution. Because many international markets do not have distribution channels well suited to the sale of frozen vaccines, Wyeth and MedImmune are collaborating to develop a second generation, refrigerator-stable, liquid trivalent cold-adapted influenza vaccine (CAIV-T), which is in phase III trials. Initially, the frozen formulation will only be available in the US. For the 2003-2004 season, FluMist will contain A/New Caledonia/20/99 (H1N1), A/Panama/2007/99 (H3N2) (A/Moscow/10/99-like) and B/Hong Kong/330/2001. Aviron was acquired by MedImmune on 15 January 2002. Aviron is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of MedImmune and is called MedImmune Vaccines. Aviron acquired FluMist in March 1995 through a Co-operative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the US NIAID, and a licensing agreement with the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA. In June 2000, the CRADA was

    PubMed is a biomedical and life sciences database maintained by a division of the National Library of Medicine known as the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). It is a large resource with more than 5600 journals indexed and greater than 22 million total citations. Searches conducted in PubMed provide references that are more specific for the intended topic compared with other popular search engines. Effective PubMed searches allow the clinician to remain current on the latest clinical trials, systematic reviews, and practice guidelines. PubMed continues to evolve by allowing users to create a customized experience through the My NCBI portal, new arrangements and options in search filters, and supporting scholarly projects through exportation of citations to reference managing software. Prepackaged search options available in the Clinical Queries feature also allow users to efficiently search for clinical literature. PubMed also provides information regarding the source journals themselves through the Journals in NCBI Databases link. This article provides an overview of the PubMed database's structure and features as well as strategies for conducting an effective search. PMID:23442731

    IntAct (freely available at http://www.ebi.ac.uk/intact) is an open-source, open data molecular interaction database populated by data either curated from the literature or from direct data depositions. IntAct has developed a sophisticated web-based curation tool, capable of supporting both IMEx- and MIMIx-level curation. This tool is now utilized by multiple additional curation teams, all of whom annotate data directly into the IntAct database. Members of the IntAct team supply appropriate levels of training, perform quality control on entries and take responsibility for long-term data maintenance. Recently, the MINT and IntAct databases decided to merge their separate efforts to make optimal use of limited developer resources and maximize the curation output. All data manually curated by the MINT curators have been moved into the IntAct database at EMBL-EBI and are merged with the existing IntAct dataset. Both IntAct and MINT are active contributors to the IMEx consortium (http://www.imexconsortium.org). PMID:24234451

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    T.R.Srinivasan

    2010-10-01

    Full Text Available In this work, we study the efficacy of assessing registered hosts for job allocation using Artificial neural network to classify registered hosts during job scheduling. Grid is evolving as the computing structure of the future. The success in commercial grid computing is the ability to negotiate resource sharing arrangements with a set of registered participating parties. Grid computing is capable of integrating services across distributed heterogeneous disparate resources with a centralized control to provide quality of service.Host assessment plays a crucial role to assign a specific job in thegrid. Host selection among the registered pool of hosts can drastically improve the quality of service. Resource discoveryalgorithms are available but identifying ideal resource to reducequeue time and response time is the most essential task in a commercial grid environment. Resource mining is the process of running data through sophisticated algorithms to uncover meaningful patterns and co relations that may otherwise be hidden. We explore theapplication of these techniques to assess host by training thesystem with known data. Experimental results show an improvement of 25.49 percent in data classification using ANN over normal methods.

    Full Text Available Daily reservoir inflow predictions with lead-times of several days are essential to the operational planning and scheduling of hydroelectric power system. The demand for quantitative precipitation forecasting (QPF is increasing in hydropower operation with the dramatic advances in the numerical weather prediction (NWP models. This paper presents a simple and an effective algorithm for daily reservoir inflow predictions which solicits the observed precipitation, forecasted precipitation from QPF as predictors and discharges in following 1 to 6 days as predicted targets for multilayer perceptron artificial neural networks (MLP-ANNs modeling. An improved error back-propagation algorithm with self-adaptive learning rate and self-adaptive momentum coefficient is used to make the supervised training procedure more efficient in both time saving and search optimization. Several commonly used error measures are employed to evaluate the performance of the proposed model and the results, compared with that of ARIMA model, show that the proposed model is capable of obtaining satisfactory forecasting not only in goodness of fit but also in generalization. Furthermore, the presented algorithm is integrated into a practical software system which has been severed for daily inflow predictions with lead-times varying from 1 to 6 days of more than twenty reservoirs operated by the Fujian Province Grid Company, China.

  11. Feed and Feed Preheating Effect on MED-TVC Enhancement

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Rapid and significant growth of world installed capacity of Reverse Osmosis (RO) followed by Multi-Effect Distillation (MED) has taken place year after year. Efforts are made to improve the system performance through increasing productivity and lowering specific power consumption by utilizing waste heat for seawater feed pre heat. The present work studies the importance of seawater pre heating in MED by utilizing power plants condenser cooling water. A steady state mathematical model for Multi - Effect Distillation combined with Thermal Vapor Compression (MED-TVC) system and the governing equations are solved using a computer program to evaluate the MED-TVC system performance. The model validity is examined by data collected from two MED - TVC plants which showed good agreement. Furthermore; the study results show that an increase of seawater feed temperature from 32 to 46 degree C enhances the system productivity. Also, it increases the Gain Output Ratio by 8.7%, and decreases the specific heat consumption and the heat transfer are a by 9.6% and 17.4% respectively

  12. Inverse Kinematic Solution of 5R Manipulator using ANN and ANFIS

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available Inverse kinematics of manipulator comprises the computation required to find the joint angles for a given Cartesian position and orientation of the end effector. There is no unique solution for the inverse kinematics thus necessitating application of appropriate predictive models from the soft computing domain. Artificial neural network and adaptive neural fuzzy inference system techniques can be gainfully used to yield the desired results. This paper proposes structured artificial neural network (ANN model and adaptive neural fuzzy inference system (ANFIS to find the inverse kinematics solution of robot manipulator. The ANN model used is a multi-layered perceptron Neural Network (MLPNN. Wherein, gradient descent type of learning rules is applied. An attempt has been made to find the best ANN configuration for the problem. It is found that ANFIS gives better result and minimum error as compared to ANN.

  20. ANN-based Innovative Segmentation Method for Handwritten text in Assamese

    CERN Document Server

    Bhattacharyya, Kaustubh

    2009-01-01

    Artificial Neural Network (ANN) s has widely been used for recognition of optically scanned character, which partially emulates human thinking in the domain of the Artificial Intelligence. But prior to recognition, it is necessary to segment the character from the text to sentences, words etc. Segmentation of words into individual letters has been one of the major problems in handwriting recognition. Despite several successful works all over the work, development of such tools in specific languages is still an ongoing process especially in the Indian context. This work explores the application of ANN as an aid to segmentation of handwritten characters in Assamese- an important language in the North Eastern part of India. The work explores the performance difference obtained in applying an ANN-based dynamic segmentation algorithm compared to projection- based static segmentation. The algorithm involves, first training of an ANN with individual handwritten characters recorded from different individuals. Handwri...

  1. ANN hybrid model versus ARIMA and ARIMAX models of runoff coefficient

    Science.gov (United States)

    Pektaş, Ali Osman; Kerem Cigizoglu, H.

    2013-09-01

    In this study, monthly runoff coefficients of seven southern large basins are calculated and modeled to forecast a holdout dataset by using univariate autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA), multivariate ARIMA (ARIMAX), and Artificial neural network (ANN) models. The applied traditional model performances are found insufficient, since the characteristic behaviors of the time series of direct runoff coefficients are very complicated. Therefore, a new Hybrid approach is adopted by using time series decomposition procedure and ANN. ARIMA, ARIMAX, ANN, and Hybrid models are compared with each other. The results indicate that the new generated Hybrid approach can be generalized to boost the prediction capability of ANNs in complicated time series data. It is seen that the new model captures the physical behavior of the direct runoff coefficient time series. The semi-random spikes of the direct runoff coefficient series are approximated sufficiently.

  4. The Changing Role of Anne of Green Gables from the Perspective of Biblio-therapy

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    江雯捷

    2015-01-01

    Anne of Green Gables is L.M. Montgomery's masterpiece. In the book, Anne is initially a poor, ugly and uncultivated girl, and she even doesn't know how to pray. But she is also frank and pure and can never reconcile herself to insults. She struggles hard to protect women's personality and dignity, and pursues self-respect and self-esteem without fear or respite. Finally, she achieves happiness. This essay discusses Anne's character in the light of historical context, and more particularly, against a back-ground of the rules governing women's behaviour at the time the novel was written. What makes Anne change her attitude? Under-lying the discussion is the question:does Anne of Green Gables have anything to teach adolescents today? Anne is not initially inter-ested in conforming but gradually learns that she must do so in order to achieve happiness and harmony. Apologizing is an impor-tant part of this process. The essay focuses on five key apology scenes. In accordance with the principle of bibliotherapy, this essay demonstrates that Anne of Green Gables is a valuable model for teenage readers struggling with when, how and to what degree they should conform to social values and conventions. In the nineteenth century, women made up the majority of the reading public, when they were portrayed in literature, they were in the home. Undoubtfully, Anne of Green Gable is successfully made sense for the adolescents. It is a simple story about a child's basic needs of a home, love, friendship and acceptance. And it is also a psycho-logical study for adolescence to think, act and interact.

  6. The Anne Frank hiding place: A phase of the homosexual development

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available The article describes the peculiar elements of the psychosexual development of homosexual: the few existing studies on the development of the homosexual identity have no developed what the authors consider the most distinctive element in gay adolescence, that is the “hide”.The study put in evidence the parallelism between the homosexual teenager and Anne Frank; in fact the gay teenager is forcing himself to hide in a “secret flat” that could be comparable to the one of Anne Frank during the holocaust. In the article a lot of parallelism between the psychological experience of Anne Frank and the homosexuals are shown. This takes care of the differences between the two experiences, in fact Anne Frank has been forced to hide while for homosexuals is a psychological experience.This auto-segregation in the secret flat foresee an evolutionary phase of the psychosexual development of a gay person. In the article links and connections of psychological experiences between Anne Frank and homosexual are showed. These experiences and connections allows to develop what the authors define “the Anne Frank phase”.

  16. Death, dying and informatics: misrepresenting religion on MedLine

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Fins Joseph J

    2005-07-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background The globalization of medical science carries for doctors worldwide a correlative duty to deepen their understanding of patients' cultural contexts and religious backgrounds, in order to satisfy each as a unique individual. To become better informed, practitioners may turn to MedLine, but it is unclear whether the information found there is an accurate representation of culture and religion. To test MedLine's representation of this field, we chose the topic of death and dying in the three major monotheistic religions. Methods We searched MedLine using PubMed in order to retrieve and thematically analyze full-length scholarly journal papers or case reports dealing with religious traditions and end-of-life care. Our search consisted of a string of words that included the most common denominations of the three religions, the standard heading terms used by the National Reference Center for Bioethics Literature (NRCBL, and the Medical Subject Headings (MeSH used by the National Library of Medicine. Eligible articles were limited to English-language papers with an abstract. Results We found that while a bibliographic search in MedLine on this topic produced instant results and some valuable literature, the aggregate reflected a selection bias. American writers were over-represented given the global prevalence of these religious traditions. Denominationally affiliated authors predominated in representing the Christian traditions. The Islamic tradition was under-represented. Conclusion MedLine's capability to identify the most current, reliable and accurate information about purely scientific topics should not be assumed to be the same case when considering the interface of religion, culture and end-of-life care.

    This research aims at investigating the backscatter sensitivity at C and X band to the characteristics of agricultural surfaces and analyzing the integration of these data collected from Radarsat2 (RS2) and COSMO-SkyMed (CSK) systems on tree agricultural test areas in Italy (San Pietro Capofiume, in Emilia Romagna, Sesto Fiorentino, in Tuscany, and Mazia Valley, in South Tyrol). A preliminary test of the sensitivity of SAR signal to the soil and vegetation characteristics was first carried out by also comparing data from previous experiments. From these results, it can be concluded that X-band data are mainly sensitive to vegetation structure and biomass, and to soil moisture of bare or slightly vegetate soils, whereas C-band images could provide valuable information for the retrieval of soil moisture, even in vegetation covered soils. Two retrieval algorithms were implemented for estimating the main geophysical parameters, namely soil moisture content (SMC) and vegetation biomass (PWC) from these sensors. Over Sesto Fiorentino area, an algorithm based on Artificial Neural Network (ANN) technique was implemented for estimating both SMC of bare or scarcely vegetated soil and vegetation biomass of wheat crops at X band. On the South-Tyrol area, a SMC retrieval approach based on the Support Vector Regression methodology, which was already tested in this area using C-band data from ENVISAT/ASAR data, was adopted. This algorithm integrated data at both X and C bands showing encouraging results, even though further investigations shall be carried out on a larger time-series and larger set of samples.

  7. Endring i adaptiv atferd hos eldre personer med utviklingshemning - en sammenligning mellom personer med Down syndrom og personer med annen utviklingshemning

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Anne Marit Bygdnes

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Bakgrunn: Stadig flere personer med utviklingshemning oppnår høg alder. Endring i adaptiv atferd kan være et tidlig tegn på aldersrelaterte lideleser som Alzheimers sykdom. Studien belyser om screeningsinstrumentet ABDQ kan benyttes av omsorgspersoner for å avdekke endring i adaptiv atferd.Materiale og metode: Undersøkelsen omfatter 87 personer med utviklingshemning som tidligere har bodd på en sentralinstitusjon. Datainnsamling skjedde ved at omsorgspersoner fylte ut ABDQ.  Resultater: Det var 24 % i utvalget som hadde nedgang i adaptiv atferd. Fortolkning: ABDQ er et hjelpemiddel til å avdekke nedgang i adaptiv atferd. Det er viktig at svikt avdekkes tidligst mulig og videreformidles til helsepersonell for utredning, diagnostisering, relevant behandling og tilrettelagte helse- og omsorgstjenester. Mange personer med utviklingshemning mestrer ikke å informere om egen helsetilstand og er avhengig av at omsorgspersonalet kan avdekke sykdom og lidelser så tidlig som mulig i sykdomsforløpet.

  10. Campylobacter jejuni induces diverse kinetics and profiles of cytokine genes in INT-407 cells

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Objective was to examine the kinetic ability of embryonic human epithelial INT-407 cells to express messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) for various cytokines and chemokines in response to Campylobacter jejuni (C. jejuni) stimulation. In an experimental single-blind study, cultured embryonic human epithelial INT-407 cells were treated with different concentrations of viable C. jejuni, its sonicated and filtered supernatant. A modified non-radioactive in situ hybridization using probe cocktails was used to measure mRNA levels for the pro-inflammatory cytokines interleukin (IL)-1beta, IL-6, interferon-gamma, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha, transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta1 and IL-8 and the anti-inflammatory cytokines, IL-4 and IL-10. The study was carried out from September 2005 to March 2007 at the Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Infectious Diseases, College of Medicine and Medical Sciences, Arabian Gulf University, Bahrain. Viable C. jejuni sonicated bacteria and filtered supernatant induced high mRNA expression for the pro-inflammatory cytokines IL-1 beta, IL-6, IFN-gama, TNF-alpha, TGF-beta and IL-8 which peaked at the 12 hours post stimulation. Anti-inflammatory cytokine IL-4 and IL-10 mNRA expression were induced maximally at 3 hours post stimulation mainly by sonicated bacteria and filtrated supernatant, however, not with living bacteria and filtrated supernatant, however, not with living bacteria. Untreated embryonic human epithelial INT-407 cells expressed low amount of mNRA for the various cytokines and chemokines at all time points. For each cytokine, 4 samples were used per time hour. This study demonstrated that embryonic human epithelial INT-407 cells in response to viable C. jejuni or its cytotxins can alter cytokine and chemokine mNRA expression patterns and kinetics suggesting a potential role for these mediators in the immunopathogenesis of the infection caused by this pathogen, which might be relevant for future immunotherapeutic

  16. Prediction of human skin permeability using artificial neural network (ANN)modeling

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    Long-jian CHEN; Guo-ping LIAN; Lu-jia HAN

    2007-01-01

    Aim: To develop an artificial neural network (ANN) model for predicting skin permeability (log Kp) of new chemical entities. Methods: A large dataset of 215experimental data points was compiled from the literature. The dataset was subdi-vided into 5 subsets and 4 of them were used to train and validate an ANN model.The same 4 datasets were also used to build a multiple linear regression (MLR)model. The remaining dataset was then used to test the 2 models. Abraham descriptors were employed as inputs into the 2 models. Model predictions were compared with the experimental results. In addition, the relationship between log Kp and Abraham descriptors were investigated. Results: The regression re-sults of the MLR model were n=215, determination coefficient (R2)=0.699, mean square error (MSE)=0.243, and F=493.556. The ANN model gave improved results with n=215, R2=0.832, MSE=0.136, and F=1050.653. The ANN model suggests that the relationship between log Kp and Abraham descriptors is non-linear. Conclusion:The study suggests that Abraham descriptors may be used to predict skin permeability, and the ANN model gives improved prediction of skin permeability.

    2015-09-01

    Full Text Available Background: Forecasting of air pollutants has become a popular topic of environmental research today. For this purpose, the artificial neural network (AAN technique is widely used as a reliable method for forecasting air pollutants in urban areas. On the other hand, the evolutionary polynomial regression (EPR model has recently been used as a forecasting tool in some environmental issues. In this research, we compared the ability of these models to forecast carbon monoxide (CO concentrations in the urban area of Tabriz city. Methods: The dataset of CO concentrations measured at the fixed stations operated by the East Azerbaijan Environmental Office along with meteorological data obtained from the East Azerbaijan Meteorological Bureau from March 2007 to March 2013, were used as input for the ANN and EPR models. Results: Based on the results, the performance of ANN is more reliable in comparison with EPR. Using the ANN model, the correlation coefficient values at all monitoring stations were calculated above 0.85. Conversely, the R2 values for these stations were obtained <0.41 using the EPR model. Conclusion: The EPR model could not overcome the nonlinearities of input data. However, the ANN model displayed more accurate results compared to the EPR. Hence, the ANN models are robust tools for predicting air pollutant concentrations.

    2012-07-01

    Surface modification of a Ti6Al4V titanium alloy was made by the plasma nitriding process. Plasma nitriding was performed in a constant gas mixture of 20% H{sub 2} -80% N{sub 2} at temperatures between 700 and 1000 C and process times between 2 and 15 h. Samples nitrided at different treatment times and temperatures were subjected to the dry sliding wear test using the pin-on-disc set up under 80N normal load with rotational speed of counter face disc of 0.8 m/s at room conditions. An artificial neural network (ANN) model of was developed for prediction of wear performance of the plasma nitrided Ti6Al4V alloy. The inputs of the ANN model were processing times and temperatures, diffusion layer thickness, Ti{sub 2}N thickness, TiN thickness and hardness. The output of the ANN model was wear loss. The model is based on the multilayer backpropagation neural technique. The ANN was trained with a comprehensive dataset collected from experimental conditions and results of authors. The model can be used for the prediction of wear properties of Ti6Al4V alloys nitrided at different parameters. The ANN model demonstrated the best statistical performance with the experimental results.

    2012-04-01

    A critical part of structural health monitoring is accurate detection of damages in the structure. This paper presents the results of two multi-class damage detection and identification approaches based on classification using Support Vector Machine (SVM) and Artificial Neural Networks (ANN). The article under test was a fiber composite panel modeled by a Finite Element Model (FEM). Static strain data were acquired at 6 predefined locations and mixed with Gaussian noise to simulate performance of real strain sensors. Strain data were then normalized by the mean of the strain values. Two experiments were performed for the performance evaluation of damage detection and identification. In both experiments, one healthy structure and two damaged structures with one and two small cracks were simulated with varying material properties and loading conditions (45 cases for each structure). The SVM and ANN models were trained with 70% of these samples and the remaining 30% samples were used for validation. The objective of the first experiment was to detect whether or not the panel was damaged. In this two class problem the average damage detection accuracy for ANN and SVM were 93.2% and 96.66% respectively. The objective of second experiment was to detect the severity of the damage by differentiating between structures with one crack and two cracks. In this three class problem the average prediction accuracy for ANN and SVM were 83.5% and 90.05% respectively. These results suggest that for noisy data, SVM may perform better than ANN for this problem.

  1. The integrator complex subunit 6 (Ints6 confines the dorsal organizer in vertebrate embryogenesis.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Lee D Kapp

    2013-10-01

    Full Text Available Dorsoventral patterning of the embryonic axis relies upon the mutual antagonism of competing signaling pathways to establish a balance between ventralizing BMP signaling and dorsal cell fate specification mediated by the organizer. In zebrafish, the initial embryo-wide domain of BMP signaling is refined into a morphogenetic gradient following activation dorsally of a maternal Wnt pathway. The accumulation of β-catenin in nuclei on the dorsal side of the embryo then leads to repression of BMP signaling dorsally and the induction of dorsal cell fates mediated by Nodal and FGF signaling. A separate Wnt pathway operates zygotically via Wnt8a to limit dorsal cell fate specification and maintain the expression of ventralizing genes in ventrolateral domains. We have isolated a recessive dorsalizing maternal-effect mutation disrupting the gene encoding Integrator Complex Subunit 6 (Ints6. Due to widespread de-repression of dorsal organizer genes, embryos from mutant mothers fail to maintain expression of BMP ligands, fail to fully express vox and ved, two mediators of Wnt8a, display delayed cell movements during gastrulation, and severe dorsalization. Consistent with radial dorsalization, affected embryos display multiple independent axial domains along with ectopic dorsal forerunner cells. Limiting Nodal signaling or restoring BMP signaling restores wild-type patterning to affected embryos. Our results are consistent with a novel role for Ints6 in restricting the vertebrate organizer to a dorsal domain in embryonic patterning.

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available Con base en las metáforas del legislador (asociado a la modernidad e intérprete (asociado a la posmodernidad discutidas por Zygmunt Bauman, este artículo problematiza algunos de los embates en torno a los significados de la pedagogía, intentando mostrar las inversiones para legislar a partir de ella y, también, la operación de interpretar con las pedagogías. El lema central se encuentra en el hecho de que las formas de demarcar, definir, cercar el concepto de pedagogía, se relaciona con una voluntad que es la de legislar sobre la sociedad y sus individuos. Con las fecundas transformaciones que han reconfigurado la sociedad y el estado de la cultura, se argumenta que ha habido una necesidad de que la pedagogía se adecuara a estas reconfiguraciones, actuando como intérprete de la cultura –lo que proporcionó, por su vez, la pluralidad del concepto de pedagogía y de las intenciones que la cruzan.

  5. DESINGING OF ANN BASED SPEED CONTROLLER FOR PHASE CONTROLLED DC MOTOR

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    MR. M.V.SUDARSAN

    2011-07-01

    Full Text Available For electrical drives good dynamic performance is mandatory so as to respond to the changes in command speed and torques, so various speed control techniques are being used for real time applications. The speed of a dc motor can be controlled using various controllers like PI- Controller, Artificial Neural Network (ANNcontroller. ANN theory is recently getting increasing emphasis in process control applications. The paper describes application of ANN in a speed control system that uses a phase-controlled bridge converter and aseparately excited DC machine. The ANN controller for current and speed loops are implemented in MATLAB/SIMULINK, replacing the conventional Proportional-Integral (PI control method. The simulationstudy indicates the superiority of artificial neural network control over the conventional control methods. This control seems to have a lot of promise in the applications of power electronics.

    We propose a novel method of combining artificial neural networks (ANNs) with chaotic noise reduction techniques that captures the metric and dynamic invariants of a chaotic time series, e.g. a time series obtained by iterating the logistic map in chaotic regimes. Our results indicate that while the feedforward neural network is capable of capturing the dynamical and metric invariants of chaotic time series within an error of about 25%, ANNs along with chaotic noise reduction techniques, such as Hammel’s method or the local projective method, can significantly improve these results. This further suggests that the effort on the ANN to train data corresponding to complex structures can be significantly reduced. This technique can be applied in areas like signal processing, data communication, image processing etc.

    Ann Kelley was a scientific pioneer in reward neuroscience. Her many notable discoveries included demonstrations of accumbens/striatal circuitry roles in eating behavior and in food reward, explorations of limbic interactions with hypothalamic regulatory circuits, and additional interactions of motivation circuits with learning functions. Ann Kelley's accomplishments inspired other researchers to follow in her footsteps, including our own laboratory group. Here we describe results from several lines of our research that sprang in part from earlier findings by Kelley and colleagues. We describe hedonic hotspots for generating intense pleasure 'liking', separate identities of 'wanting' versus 'liking' systems, a novel role for dorsal neostriatum in generating motivation to eat, a limbic keyboard mechanism in nucleus accumbens for generating intense desire versus intense dread, and dynamic limbic transformations of learned memories into motivation. We describe how origins for each of these themes can be traced to fundamental contributions by Ann Kelley. PMID:23261404

  8. Modelling and automatic reactive power control of isolated wind-diesel hybrid power systems using ANN

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This paper presents an artificial neural network (ANN) based approach to tune the parameters of the static var compensator (SVC) reactive power controller over a wide range of typical load model parameters. The gains of PI (proportional integral) based SVC are optimised for typical values of the load voltage characteristics (nq) by conventional techniques. Using the generated data, the method of multi-layer feed forward ANN with error back propagation training is employed to tune the parameters of the SVC. An ANN tuned SVC controller has been applied to control the reactive power of a variable slip/speed isolated wind-diesel hybrid power system. It is observed that the maximum deviations of all parameters are more for larger values of nq. It has been shown that initially synchronous generator supplies the reactive power required by the induction generator and/or load, and the latter reactive power is purely supplied by the SVC

    The method for harmonic cancellation based on artificial neural network (ANN) is proposed. The task is accomplished by generating reference signal with frequency that should be eliminated from the output. The reference input is weighted by the ANN in such a way that it closely matches the harmonic. The weighted reference signal is added to the fundamental signal such that the output harmonic is cancelled leaving the desired signal alone. The weights of ANN are adjusted by output harmonic, which is isolated by a bandpass filter. The above concept is used as a basis for the development of adaptive harmonic cancellation (AHC) algorithm. Simulation results performed with a hydraulic system demonstrate the efficiency and validity of the proposed AHC control scheme.

    2011-07-01

    In this research, a new wavelet artificial neural network (WANN) model was proposed for daily suspended sediment load (SSL) prediction in rivers. In the developed model, wavelet analysis was linked to an artificial neural network (ANN). For this purpose, daily observed time series of river discharge (Q) and SSL in Yadkin River at Yadkin College, NC station in the USA were decomposed to some sub-time series at different levels by wavelet analysis. Then, these sub-time series were imposed to the ANN technique for SSL time series modeling. To evaluate the model accuracy, the proposed model was compared with ANN, multi linear regression (MLR), and conventional sediment rating curve (SRC) models. The comparison of prediction accuracy of the models illustrated that the WANN was the most accurate model in SSL prediction. Results presented that the WANN model could satisfactorily simulate hysteresis phenomenon, acceptably estimate cumulative SSL, and reasonably predict high SSL values. PMID:21546062

    2014-12-01

    The meteorological parameters plays a vital role for determining various water demand in the water resource systems, planning, management and operation. Thus, accurate prediction of meteorological variables at different spatial and temporal intervals is the key requirement. Artificial Neural Network (ANN) is one of the most widely used data driven modelling techniques with lots of good features like, easy applications, high accuracy in prediction and to predict the multi-output complex non-linear relationships. In this paper, a Multi-input Multi-output (MIMO) ANN model has been developed and applied to predict seven important meteorological parameters, such as maximum temperature, minimum temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, sunshine hours, dew point temperature and evaporation concurrently. Several types of ANN, such as multilayer perceptron, generalized feedforward neural network, radial basis function and recurrent neural network with multi hidden layer and varying number of neurons at the hidden layer, has been developed, trained, validated and tested. From the results, it is found that the recurrent MIMO-ANN having 28 neurons in a single hidden layer, trained using hyperbolic tangent transfer function with a learning rate of 0.3 and momentum factor of 0.7 performed well over the other types of MIMO-ANN models. The MIMO ANN model performed well for all parameters with higher correlation and other performance indicators except for sunshine hours. Due to erratic nature, the importance of each of the input over the output through sensitivity analysis indicated that relative humidity has highest influence while others have equal influence over the output.

    "Give me a layout good enough and a building to place it, and I will install your accelerator". To paraphrase Archimedes, this is the role attributed to the Integration team in the MedAustron project. Starting with the optics layout and a building sketch, the integration work consists of a series of activities, interlinked in a complex manner. First the design and the integration of accelerator: list all items, define geometrical envelopes with interfaces, put them in position in CAD, identify conflicts and define input for design of items and of infrastructure. Then the various equipment is procured: verify and validate design data, follow-up manufacturing, fiducialize equipment and build supports. Lastly the global installation: check building and infrastructure, define survey framework, install and pre-align equipment on supports, move assemblies to their final location, survey actual position and adjust to theoretical position. The whole chain of operations from the layout to a real beam in MedAustron, i...

    TeleMed is a distributed diagnosis and analysis system, which permits physicians who are not collocated to consult on the status of a patient. The patient`s record is dynamically constructed from data that may reside at several sites but which can be quickly assembled for viewing by pointing to the patient`s name. Then, a graphical patient record appears, through which consulting physicians can retrieve textual and radiographic data with a single mouse click. TeleMed uses modern distributed object technology and emerging telecollaboration tools. The authors describe in this paper some of the motivation for this change, what they mean by a virtual patient record, and some results of some early implementations of a virtual patient record.

    The MEDiterranean SUpersite Volcanoes (MED-SUV) project aims at gaining new insights in the knowledge of the processes on the base of the volcanic phenomena observable at the surface by using the broad inventory of multidisciplinary data available for Mt. Etna and Campi Flegrei/Vesuvius. These active volcanic areas, which have been here considered as a cluster of supersites, represent test cases since they embrace the main characteristics typical of both "opened- and closed-conduit" volcanic systems. For the purpose, MED-SUV objectives focus on the (i) development of novel monitoring instrumentations and data collection methods, (ii) implementation of the current observation infrastructures, (iii) better constraint of crucial volcanic parameters by integration of in-situ and satellite data, and (iv) the development of an e-infrastructure for data sharing. In this framework, MED-SUV is a great opportunity for scientific collaboration among diverse research institutions and industrial sectors. MED-SUV aims to use the achieved results to gain robust sets of multi-parametric observations using the most advanced analytic data processing techniques and volcanic process and hazard modelling methods. These will provide new insights in the current and past eruptive activity of the three test case volcanoes that will increase our technical-scientific ability of tracking volcanic-related hazards in the targeted areas, and of communicating with the proper decision-maker bodies. The implementation of an e-infrastructure compliant with EPOS and the other two supersite projects, MARsite and FUTUREVOLC, will contribute to the GEO/GEOSS interoperability principles and to the GEO 2012-15 work plan.

    The Italian Space Agency (ASI) promotes Earth Observation (EO) applications related to themes such as the prediction, monitoring, management and mitigation of natural and anthropogenic hazards. The approach generally followed is the development and demonstration of prototype services, using currently available data from space missions, in particular the COSMO-SkyMed (Constellation of Small Satellites for Mediterranean basin observation) mission, which represents the largest Italian investment in Space System for EO and thanks to which Italy plays a key role worldwide. Projects funded by ASI provide the convergence of various national industry expertise, research and institutional reference users. In this context a significant example is represented by the ASI Pilot Projects, recently concluded, dealing with various thematic, such as volcanoes. In this paper a special focus will be addressed to the volcanic risk management and the contribution provided in this field by COSMO-SkyMed satellite constellation during the last years. A comprehensive overview of the various national and international projects using COSMO-SkyMed data for the volcanic risk mitigation will be given, highlighting the Italian contribution provided worldwide in this operational framework.

    The Mars Entry Descent and Landing Instrumentation 2 (MEDLI2) sensor suite will measure aerodynamic, aerothermodynamic, and TPS performance during the atmospheric entry, descent, and landing phases of the Mars 2020 mission. The key objectives are to reduce design margin and prediction uncertainties for the aerothermal environments and aerodynamic database. For MEDLI2, the sensors are installed on both the heatshield and backshell, and include 7 pressure transducers, 17 thermal plugs, and 3 heat flux sensors (including a radiometer). These sensors will expand the set of measurements collected by the highly successful MEDLI suite, collecting supersonic pressure measurements on the forebody, a pressure measurement on the aftbody, direct heat flux measurements on the aftbody, a radiative heating measurement on the aftbody, and multiple near-surface thermal measurements on the thermal protection system (TPS) materials on both the forebody and aftbody. To meet the science objectives, supersonic pressure transducers and heat flux sensors are currently being developed and their qualification and calibration plans are presented. Finally, the reconstruction targets for data accuracy are presented, along with the planned methodologies for achieving the targets.

    The impact of natural and man-made disasters on the social and economic progress is going to become more significant, making necessary to consider natural disasters reduction. Therefore civil protection and resource managers need elements to make quicker and better decisions on a day-to-day basis, so giving the start to an emerging world-wide remote sensing market. A deep analysis on the potential users, mainly devoted to Mediterranean basin, highlights that existing and/or planned systems are not able to completely satisfy their requirements. To fulfill this gap, Italy decided to promote the SkyMed/COSMO system, presently financed by the Italian Space Agency. SkyMed/COSMO is a constellation of small satellites for observation, remote sensing and data exploitation for risks management and coastal zone monitoring, conceived to provide products, services and logistics to both institutional and commercial remote sensing users on global scale. Furthermore the system is able to satisfy a broad spectrum of important applications also in the field of the resource management, land use and law enforcement. The SkyMed/COSMO current system architecture foresees a constellation of small satellites in two different orbit planes composed by 4 satellite equipped with X-band SAR and 3 satellites equipped with optical sensors. The system is characterized by good spatial resolution, day and night/all-weather imaging capability and by a very good revisit time. The program, currently in phase B, is carried out by an industrial consortium lead by Alenia Aerospazio.

    Apoptosis, a type of cell death, is necessary for maintaining tissue homeostasis and removing malignant cells. Interrupted apoptosis process contributes to carcinogenesis, developmental defects, autoimmune diseases and neurological disorders. Due to the complexity of the process, the molecular dynamics and relative interactions of individual proteins responsible for the activation or inhibition of apoptosis should be researched systematically. In this study, we integrate known protein interactions from databases DIP, IntAct, MINT, HPRD and BioGRID by Naïve Bayes classifier. The receiver operation characteristic (ROC) curve with the area under the ROC curve (AUC) of 0.797 indicates it has a good performance in prediction. Then, we predict the global human apoptotic protein interactions network. Within it, we not only identify the already known interactions of caspases (caspase-8/-10, caspase-9, caspase-3/-6/-7) and Bcl-2 family, but also reveal that Bid can interact with casein kinases (CSK21/22/2B, KC1A, KC1E); both of B2LA1 and B2CL2 can interact with Bid, Bax and Bak; caspase-8 interacts with autophagic proteins (MLP3B, MLP3A and LRRk2). Consequently, we make an initial step to develop the web service IntApop that provides an appropriate platform for apoptosis researchers, systems biologists and translational clinician scientists to predict apoptotic protein interactions in human. In addition, the interaction network can be visualized online, making it a widely applicable systems biology tool for apoptosis and cancer researchers. PMID:24120734

  15. Optimization of PV array inclination in India using ANN estimator: Method comparison study

    Indian Academy of Sciences (India)

    T V Dixit; Anamika Yadav; S Gupta

    2015-08-01

    The network of solar power plants in distributed power system (in India) is growing exponentially. Since tilt angle affects the energy collection by solar panels, the conduction of experiments to find optimum tilt angle is expensive and time consuming in each location. Although different non-linear, empirical models have been proposed by different researchers in India, they have too many constraints and needs complex and rigorous computational effort each time. In this paper, a data driven approach such as ANN estimator has been proposed to estimate (opt) at which solar energy collection of Photo-Voltaic Array (PVA) will be maximum at selected cities of India. The latitude () elevation (L) from sea level and monthly mean hourly and daily global solar irradiance (g) of location are taken into account for this study. The ANN estimator takes g, and L of site as inputs which are easily available and estimate optimum tilt angle almost instantaneously while testing. The proposed ANN estimator results are compared with analytical results. To validate the performance of ANN estimator results, statistical analysis study is carried out. Where, two statistical approaches such as descriptive method and Altman–Bland methods are applied. The ANA estimator results are found much close to ANA results at 95% confidence interval under statistical study.

    2009-01-01

    Based on the Residual Oil Hydrodesulfurization Treatment Unit (S-RHT), the n-order reaction kinetic model for residual oil HDS reactions and artificial neural network (ANN) model were developed to determine the sulfur content of hydrogenated residual oil. The established ANN model covered 4 input variables, 1 output variable and 1 hidden layer with 15 neurons. The comparison between the results of two models was listed. The results showed that the predicted mean relative errors of the two models with three different sample data were less than 5% and both the two models had good predictive precision and extrapolative feature for the HDS process. The mean relative error of 5 sets of testing data of the ANN model was 1.62%-3.23%, all of which were smaller than that of the common mechanism model (3.47%-4.13%). It showed that the ANN model was better than the mechanism model both in terms of fitting results and fitting difficulty. The models could be easily applied in practice and could also provide a reference for the further research of residual oil HDS process.

    2015-07-01

    The streamflow prediction is an essentially important aspect of any watershed modelling. The black box models (soft computing techniques) have proven to be an efficient alternative to physical (traditional) methods for simulating streamflow and sediment yield of the catchments. The present study focusses on development of models using ANN and fuzzy logic (FL) algorithm for predicting the streamflow for catchment of Savitri River Basin. The input vector to these models were daily rainfall, mean daily evaporation, mean daily temperature and lag streamflow used. In the present study, 20 years (1992–2011) rainfall and other hydrological data were considered, of which 13 years (1992–2004) was for training and rest 7 years (2005–2011) for validation of the models. The mode performance was evaluated by R, RMSE, EV, CE, and MAD statistical parameters. It was found that, ANN model performance improved with increasing input vectors. The results with fuzzy logic models predict the streamflow with single input as rainfall better in comparison to multiple input vectors. While comparing both ANN and FL algorithms for prediction of streamflow, ANN model performance is quite superior.

    2010-12-15

    In this paper the wind speed forecasting in the Isla de Cedros in Baja California, in the Cerro de la Virgen in Zacatecas and in Holbox in Quintana Roo is presented. The time series utilized are average hourly wind speed data obtained directly from the measurements realized in the different sites during about one month. In order to do wind speed forecasting Hybrid models consisting of Autoregressive Integrated Moving Average (ARIMA) models and Artificial Neural Network (ANN) models were developed. The ARIMA models were first used to do the wind speed forecasting of the time series and then with the obtained errors ANN were built taking into account the nonlinear tendencies that the ARIMA technique could not identify, reducing with this the final errors. Once the Hybrid models were developed 48 data out of sample for each one of the sites were used to do the wind speed forecasting and the results were compared with the ARIMA and the ANN models working separately. Statistical error measures such as the mean error (ME), the mean square error (MSE) and the mean absolute error (MAE) were calculated to compare the three methods. The results showed that the Hybrid models predict the wind velocities with a higher accuracy than the ARIMA and ANN models in the three examined sites. (author)

    2014-11-01

    In this research, a comprehensive soft computational approach is presented for the analysis of the influencing parameters on manufacturing of dual-phase steels. A set of experimental data have been gathered to obtain the initial database used for the training and testing of both artificial neural networks (ANN) and adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS). The parameters used in the strategy were intercritical annealing temperature, carbon content, and holding time which gives off martensite percentage as an output. A fraction of the data set was chosen to train both ANN and ANFIS, and the rest was put into practice to authenticate the act of the trained networks while seeing unseen data. To compare the obtained results, coefficient of determination and root mean squared error indexes were chosen. Using artificial intelligence methods, it is not necessary to consider and establish a preliminary mathematical model and formulate its affecting parameters on its definition. In conclusion, the martensite percentages corresponding to the manufacturing parameters can be determined prior to a production using these controlling algorithms. Although the results acquired from both ANN and ANFIS are very encouraging, the proposed ANFIS has enhanced performance over the ANN and takes better effect on cost-reduction profit.

  19. REGIME IDENTIFICATION OF SLURRY TRANSPORT IN PIPELINES - A NOVEL MODELING APPROACH USING ANN AND DIFFERENTIAL EVOLUTION

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    SANDIP KUMAR LAHIRI

    2010-12-01

    Full Text Available Four distinct regimes were found existent (namely sliding bed, saltation, heterogeneous suspension and homogeneous suspension in slurry flow in pipelines depending upon the average velocity of flow. In the literature, few correlations have been proposed for identification of these regimes in slurry pipelines. Regime identification is important for slurry pipeline design as they are the prerequisite for applying different pressure drop correlations in different regimes. How¬ever, the available correlations fail to predict the regime over a wide range of conditions. Based on a databank of around 800 measurements collected from the open literature, a method has been proposed to identify the regime using ar¬tificial neural network (ANN modeling. The method incorporates hybrid artificial neural network and differential evolution technique (ANN-DE for efficient tuning of ANN Meta parameters. Statistical analysis showed that the proposed method has an average misclassification error of 0.03%. A comparison with selected cor-relations in the literature showed that the developed ANN-DE method noticeably improved prediction of regime over a wide range of operating conditions, physical properties, and pipe diameters.

    Artificial neural networks (ANNs) are biologically inspired computer programs designed to simulate the way in which the human brain processes information. ANNs gather their knowledge by detecting the patterns and relationships in data and learn (or are trained) through experience, not from programming. An ANN is formed from hundreds of single units, artificial neurons or processing elements (PE), connected with coefficients (weights), which constitute the neural structure and are organised in layers. The power of neural computations comes from connecting neurons in a network. Each PE has weighted inputs, transfer function and one output. The behavior of a neural network is determined by the transfer functions of its neurons, by the learning rule, and by the architecture itself. The weights are the adjustable parameters and, in that sense, a neural network is a parameterized system. The weighed sum of the inputs constitutes the activation of the neuron. The activation signal is passed through transfer function to produce a single output of the neuron. Transfer function introduces non-linearity to the network. During training, the inter-unit connections are optimized until the error in predictions is minimized and the network reaches the specified level of accuracy. Once the network is trained and tested it can be given new input information to predict the output. Many types of neural networks have been designed already and new ones are invented every week but all can be described by the transfer functions of their neurons, by the learning rule, and by the connection formula. ANN represents a promising modeling technique, especially for data sets having non-linear relationships which are frequently encountered in pharmaceutical processes. In terms of model specification, artificial neural networks require no knowledge of the data source but, since they often contain many weights that must be estimated, they require large training sets. In addition, ANNs can combine

    InTe, SnAs and PbSb formally have unusual valence states, In2+, Sn3+ and Pb3+. All of them have B1 crystal structure at some pressure range. They are candidates of the valence-skip compound, which may have negative effective Coulomb interaction Ueff electronic structures by ab-initio calculations, and calculated the number of s-electrons at the cation site. We found that InTe is favorable to emerge valence skip, while PbSb is not favorable for valence skip. SnAs is between these two. These findings well agree with the experimental results.

    The Mediator multiprotein complex physically links transcription factors to RNA polymerase II and the basal transcription machinery. While the Mediator complex has been shown to be required for transcriptional initiation and elongation, the understanding of its interplay with histone modifying enzymes and post‐translational modifications remains elusive. In this issue of The EMBO Journal, Yao et al (2015) report that the MED23 subunit of the Mediator complex physically associates with the heterodimeric RNF20/40 E3‐ligase complex to facilitate the monoubiquitylation of histone H2B on gene bodies of actively transcribed genes.

    Phyllodes tumor (PT) is a rare breast biphasic tumor with a potential risk of recurrence and metastasis. In this study, the frequency of MED12 mutations in 176 PTs (49 benign, 49 borderline, and 78 malignant) was determined and the prognostic effect of these mutations in malignant type PT was evaluated. Analysis of MED12 mutations was performed by Sanger sequencing targeting the hotspot mutation region (exon 2) of MED12. Immunohistochemistry was also applied for evaluation of MED12 protein expression on tissue microarray blocks for 133 PTs including 50 benign, 50 borderline, and 33 malignant cases. A notable difference in the frequency of MED12 mutations was found according to histologic grade (71.4% of benign PTs, 51% of borderline PTs, 26.9% of malignant PTs; P expression was not correlated with MED12 mutation status. Patients with malignant PTs that harbored MED12 mutations demonstrated improved disease-free survival (DFS) compared with those without MED12 mutation (P = 0.07). MED12 mutation was a common molecular alteration in PT and the frequency of MED12 mutation decreased with increasing histologic grade. In malignant PT, MED12 exon 2 mutations showed improved DFS but without significance. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. PMID:26856273

    The availability of low cost Internet connections and specialized hardware, like webcams and headsets, makes possible the development of solutions for remote collaborative work. These solutions can provide advantages compared to presential meetings, such as: availability of experts on remote locations; lower price compared to presential meetings; creation of online didactic material (e.g. video-classes); richer forms of interaction between participants. These technologies are particularly interesting for continent-sized countries where typically there is a short number of skilled people in remote areas. However, the application of these technologies in medical field represents a special challenge due to the more complex requirements of this area, such as: Provide confidentiality (patient de-identification) and integrity of patient data; Guarantee availability of the system; Guarantee authenticity of data and users; Provide simple and effective user interface; Be compliant with medical standards such as DICOM and HL7. In order to satisfy those requirements a prototype called MedCast is under development whose architecture allows the integration of the Hospital Information System (HIS) with a collaborative tool in compliance with the HIPAA rules. Some of the MedCast features are: videoconferencing, chat, recording of the sessions, sharing of documents and reports and still and dynamic images presentation. Its current version allows the remote discussion of clinical cases and the remote ECG evaluation.

    Cancer therapy synchrotrons profit from single turn injection in terms of size, costs and easy operation. The MEdically Dedicated EBIS (MedEBIS), built in Frankfurt, will deliver short (~1.5 mu s) and intense (~1.3 mA) pulses of highly charged light ions (C, N, O) to meet the requirements for therapy facilities. The MedEBIS operates with an electron beam of 400 mA at 5 keV and a ratio of beam to drift tube of 1/20. Drift tube potentials up to 1.6 kV are switched in some 100 ns to deliver a 1.5 mu s ion pulse at an axial field gradient of 6.5kV/m. On extraction, all potentials applied to the drift tubes are set to a given primary potential to define the extraction gradient. During extraction the drift tubes are not held at constant voltage to avoid spreading out of the pulse due to the restoration of the full space charge depression at locations where ions have already been extracted. To locally distribute the action of the applied potentials the drift tubes are fully interpenetrating each other with tapered f...

  15. MedAustron - Ion-Beam Therapy and Research Center

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    MedAustron is a synchrotron-based light-ion beam therapy center for cancer treatment as well as for clinical and non-clinical research, currently in the commissioning phase in Wiener Neustadt, Austria. Recently, the first proton beam was transported successfully to one of the four irradiation rooms. Whilst the choice of basic machine parameters was driven by medical requirements, i.e. 60 MeV protons and 120 MeV/A to 400 MeV/A carbon ions, the accelerator complex design was also optimized to offer flexibility for research operation. The potential of the synchrotron is being exploited to increase the maximum proton energy far beyond the medical needs to up to 800 MeV, for experimental physics applications, mainly in the areas of proton scattering and detector research. The accelerator layout allows for the installation of up to four ion source-spectrometer units, to provide various ion types besides the clinical used protons and carbon ions. Besides experimental physics, the two main non-clinical research disciplines are medical radiation physics and radiation biology. To decouple research and medical operation, a dedicated irradiation room for non-clinical research was included providing the installation of different experiments. In addition, several labs have been equipped with appropriate devices for preparing and analyzing radio-biological samples. This presentation gives a status overview over the whole project and highlights the non-clinical research opportunities at MedAustron. (Author)

    Over the last decade, communication industries have witnessed a tremendous expansion, while, the biological effects of electromagnetic waves have not been fully elucidated. Current study aimed at evaluating the mutagenic effect of long-term exposure to 900-MHz radiation on alpha-Int1 gene sequences of Candida albicans. A standard 900 MHz radiation generator was used for radiation. 10 ml volumes from a stock suspension of C. albicans were transferred into 10 polystyrene tubes. Five tubes were exposed at 4 °C to a fixed magnitude of radiation with different time periods of 10, 70, 210, 350 and 490 h. The other 5 tubes were kept far enough from radiation. The samples underwent genomic DNA extraction. PCR amplification of alpha-Int1 gene sequence was done using one set of primers. PCR products were resolved using agarose gel electrophoresis and the nucleotide sequences were determined. All samples showed a clear electrophoretic band around 441 bp and further sequencing revealed the amplified DNA segments are related to alpha-Int1 gene of the yeast. No mutations in the gene were seen in radiation exposed samples. Long-term exposure of the yeast to mobile phone radiation under the above mentioned conditions had no mutagenic effect on alpha-Int1 gene sequence. PMID:27081370

Desde la época de Gaspar Antonio Chi en 1580 hasta la desaparición de esta corte en la década de 1820, estos hombres mediaron directamente en disputas de propiedades, quejas contra las autoridades, y tradujeron decretos inicialmente publicados en español para la mayoría maya hablante de la provincia. Sus actividades demuestran que Yucatán poseyó un alto número de individuos que dominaron tanto el maya como el español hasta finales del periodo colonial. Además, la cantidad de individuos calificados sirviendo extra oficial mente como intérpretes durante finales del siglo dieciocho, y el sorprendente número de no-mayas que necesitaron sus servicios, muestran también que el periodo colonial fue una época en la que el maya se extendió como lenguaje predominante en Yucatán, en lugar de una época de declive para ese idioma.This paper focuses one type of important intermediaries of colonial Yucatan, the general interpreters of Yucatan's Juzgado Privado de Indios. From the time of Gaspar Antonio Chi in 1580 until the demise of this court in the 1820s, these men mediated directly in land disputes, complaints against priests and other officials, and translated decrees initially published in Spanish for the province's Maya-speaking majority. The activities of the interpreters demonstrate that Yucatan had a high number of individuals literate and fluent in both Maya and Spanish until the close of the colonial period. Furthermore, the quantity of qualified individuals serving unofficially as interpreters during the late eighteenth century and the surprising number of non-Mayas in need of their services also shows that the colonial period was a time in which Maya spread as the predominant language of Yucatan rather than a time of decline for the region's native language.

    Abiotic stress results in massive loss of crop productivity throughout the world. Because of our limited knowledge of the plant defense mechanisms, it is very difficult to exploit the plant genetic resources for manipulation of traits that could benefit multiple stress tolerance in plants. To achieve this, we need a deeper understanding of the plant gene regulatory mechanisms involved in stress responses. Understanding the roles of different members of plant gene families involved in different stress responses, would be a step in this direction. Arabidopsis, which served as a model system for the plant research, is also the most suitable system for the functional characterization of plant gene families. Annexin family in Arabidopsis also is one gene family which has not been fully explored. Eight annexin genes have been reported in the genome of Arabidopsis thaliana. Expression studies of different Arabidopsis annexins revealed their differential regulation under various abiotic stress conditions. AnnAt8 (At5g12380), a member of this family has been shown to exhibit ~433 and ~175 fold increase in transcript levels under NaCl and dehydration stress respectively. To characterize Annexin8 (AnnAt8) further, we have generated transgenic Arabidopsis and tobacco plants constitutively expressing AnnAt8, which were evaluated under different abiotic stress conditions. AnnAt8 overexpressing transgenic plants exhibited higher seed germination rates, better plant growth, and higher chlorophyll retention when compared to wild type plants under abiotic stress treatments. Under stress conditions transgenic plants showed comparatively higher levels of proline and lower levels of malondialdehyde compared to the wild-type plants. Real-Time PCR analyses revealed that the expression of several stress-regulated genes was altered in AnnAt8 over-expressing transgenic tobacco plants, and the enhanced tolerance exhibited by the transgenic plants can be correlated with altered expressions of

    OsANN1 is a member of the annexin protein family in rice. The function of this protein and the mechanisms of its involvement in stress responses and stress tolerance are largely unknown. Here it is reported that OsANN1 confers abiotic stress tolerance by modulating antioxidant accumulation under abiotic stress. OsANN1-knockdown [RNA interference (RNAi)] plants were more sensitive to heat and drought stresses, whereas OsANN1-overexpression (OE) lines showed improved growth with higher expression of OsANN1 under abiotic stress. Overexpression of OsANN1 promoted SOD (superoxide dismutase) and CAT (catalase) activities, which regulate H2O2 content and redox homeostasis, suggesting the existence of a feedback mechanism between OsANN1 and H2O2 production under abiotic stress. Higher expression of OsANN1 can provide overall cellular protection against abiotic stress-induced damage, and a significant accumulation of OsANN1-green fluorescent protein (GFP) signals was found in the cytosol after heat shock treatment. OsANN1 also has calcium-binding and ATPase activities in vitro, indicating that OsANN1 has multiple functions in rice growth. Furthermore, yeast two-hybrid and bimolecular fluorescence complementation (BiFC) assays demonstrated that OsANN1 interacts with OsCDPK24. This cross-talk may provide additional layers of regulation in the abiotic stress response. PMID:26085678

  4. Upgrading from the Dicon Wiring Management system to IntEC at the Gentilly 2 station

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The General Electric DICON Wiring Management system supplied to HQ during the construction of G2 is currently being replaced by the stand-alone version of the IntEC software developed by AECL. The reasons for replacing DICON and choosing lntEC are discussed. The different aspects of the two year DICON data conversion project are presented with the problems encountered and the means that were taken to resolve the problems. lntEC has shown our DICON data to be considerably more deficient than we had thought. This has increased the cost and the duration of the conversion process. However, correcting the errors during the conversion process provides us with much more accurate data. This should be viewed as an investment in configuration management. Many potential causes of future errors and potentially critical path delays have been removed. We have chosen to document the detailed procedures for the use of lntEC in our plant using a Windows Help File compiler. This also has been found to be extremely useful as a training tool as well as providing on-line help. The DICON data conversion into lntEC will not be completed until 1996. lntEC is not perfect. However, from what we have up to now, we are satisfied with the conviviality and efficiency of lntEC and with AECL's diligence in constantly aspiring in making it a better product. (author)

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Céline Spector

    2007-04-01

    Full Text Available Dans les cours au Collège de France réunis dans Naissance de la biopolitique, Foucault soutient qu’une science économico-juridique est rigoureusement impossible. Or cette thèse radicale mérite discussion, à partir d’un auteur trop souvent ignoré des historiens de la genèse de l’économie politique. Montesquieu, à sa façon, contribue à la constitution de ce savoir économico-juridique, susceptible de penser ensemble sujet d’intérêt et sujet de droit. L’esprit de cette étude ne sera pas de critiquer Foucault en montrant que Montesquieu ne « rentre » pas dans l’opposition de ses paradigmes, mais plutôt de tenter de mesurer l’originalité d’une pensée qui conçoit des échanges entre propriété et liberté qui ont pour effet d’unifier rationalité économique et rationalité juridique.

  7. Med5(Nut1 and Med17(Srb4 are direct targets of mediator histone H4 tail interactions.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Zhongle Liu

    Full Text Available The Mediator complex transmits activation signals from DNA bound transcription factors to the core transcription machinery. In addition to its canonical role in transcriptional activation, recent studies have demonstrated that S. cerevisiae Mediator can interact directly with nucleosomes, and their histone tails. Mutations in Mediator subunits have shown that Mediator and certain chromatin structures mutually impact each other structurally and functionally in vivo. We have taken a UV photo cross-linking approach to further delineate the molecular basis of Mediator chromatin interactions and help determine whether the impact of certain Mediator mutants on chromatin is direct. Specifically, by using histone tail peptides substituted with an amino acid analog that is a UV activatible crosslinker, we have identified specific subunits within Mediator that participate in histone tail interactions. Using Mediator purified from mutant yeast strains we have evaluated the impact of these subunits on histone tail binding. This analysis has identified the Med5 subunit of Mediator as a target for histone tail interactions and suggests that the previously observed effect of med5 mutations on telomeric heterochromatin and silencing is direct.

We discovered an unexpected binding between Elmo1 and the Mediator complex subunit Med31. The Mediator complex is a regulatory hub for nearly all gene transcription via RNA polymerase II, bridging the general transcription machinery with gene-specific regulatory proteins. Med31 is the smallest and the most evolutionarily conserved Mediator subunit, and knockout of Med31 results in embryonic lethality in mice; however, Med31 function in specific biological contexts is poorly understood. We observed that in primary macrophages, during Salmonella infection, Elmo1 and Med31 specifically affected expression of the cytokine genes Il10 and Il33 among the >25 genes monitored. Although endogenous Med31 is predominantly nuclear localized, Elmo1 increased the cytoplasmic localization of Med31. We identify ubiquitination as a novel posttranslational modification of Med31, with the cytoplasmic monoubiquitinated form of Med31 being enhanced by Elmo1. These data identify Elmo1 as a novel regulator of Med31, revealing a previously unrecognized link between cytoplasmic signaling proteins and the Mediator complex. PMID:23273896

  9. FPGA implementation of adaptive ANN controller for speed regulation of permanent magnet stepper motor drives

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This paper presents a novel adaptive artificial neural network (ANN) controller, which applies on permanent magnet stepper motor (PMSM) for regulating its speed. The dynamic response of the PMSM with the proposed controller is studied during the starting process under the full load torque and under load disturbance. The effectiveness of the proposed adaptive ANN controller is then compared with that of the conventional PI controller. The proposed methodology solves the problem of nonlinearities and load changes of PMSM drives. The proposed controller ensures fast and accurate dynamic response with an excellent steady state performance. Matlab/Simulink tool is used for this dynamic simulation study. The main contribution of this work is the implementation of the proposed controller on field programmable gate array (FPGA) hardware to drive the stepper motor. The driver is built on FPGA Spartan-3E Starter from Xilinx. Experimental results are presented to demonstrate the validity and effectiveness of the proposed control scheme.

    Full Text Available A novel mucoadhesive buccal tablet containing flurbiprofen (FLB and lidocaine HCl (LID was prepared to relieve dental pain. Tablet formulations (F1-F9 were prepared using variable quantities of mucoadhesive agents, hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose (HPMC and sodium alginate (SA. The formulations were evaluated for their physicochemical properties, mucoadhesive strength and mucoadhesion time, swellability index and in vitro release of active agents. Release of both drugs depended on the relative ratio of HPMC:SA. However, mucoadhesive strength and mucoadhesion time were better in formulations, containing higher proportions of HPMC compared to SA. An artificial neural network (ANN approach was applied to optimise formulations based on known effective parameters (i.e., mucoadhesive strength, mucoadhesion time and drug release, which proved valuable. This study indicates that an effective buccal tablet formulation of flurbiprofen and lidocaine can be prepared via an optimized ANN approach.

    Failure depth of coal seam floors is one of the important considerations that must be kept in mind when mining is carried out above a confined aquifer. In order to study the factors that affect the failure depth of coal seam floors such as mining depth, coal seam pitch, mining thickness, workface length and faults, we propose a combined artificial neural networks (ANN) prediction model for failure depth of coal seam floors on the basis of existing engineering data by using genetic algorithms to train the ANN. A practical engineering application at the Taoyuan Coal Mine indicates that this method can effectively determine the network struc-ture and training parameters, with the predicted results agreeing with practical measurements. Therefore, this method can be applied to relevant engineering projects with satisfactory results.

    Full Text Available Artificial Neural Networks (ANN are efficient tools to derive solar UV radiation from measured meteorological parameters such as global radiation, aerosol optical depths and atmospheric column ozone. The ANN model has been tested with different combinations of data from the two sites Potsdam and Lindenberg, and used to reconstruct solar UV radiation at eight European sites by more than 100 years into the past. Annual totals of UV radiation derived from reconstructed daily UV values reflect interannual variations and long-term patterns that are compatible with variabilities and changes of measured input data, in particular global dimming by about 1980–1990, subsequent global brightening, volcanic eruption effects such as that of Mt. Pinatubo, and the long-term ozone decline since the 1970s. Patterns of annual erythemal UV radiation are very similar at sites located at latitudes close to each other, but different patterns occur between UV radiation at sites in different latitude regions.

    Full Text Available Low Frequency Oscillations (LFO occur inpower systems because of lack of the damping torque inorder to dominance to power system disturbances aschange in mechanical input power. In the recent pastPower System Stabilizer (PSS was used to damp LFO.FACTs devices, such as Unified Power Flow Controller(UPFC, can control power flow and increase transientstability. So UPFC may be used to damp LFO instead ofPSS. UPFC damps LFO through direct control of voltageand power. In this research the linearized model ofsynchronous machine (Heffron-Philips connected toinfinite bus (Single Machine-Infinite Bus: SMIB withUPFC is used and also in order to damp LFO, adaptiveANN damping controller for UPFC is designed andsimulated. Simulation is performed for various types ofloads and for different disturbances. Simulation resultsdemonstrate that the developed ANN damping controllerwould be more effective in damping electromechanicaloscillations in comparison with the conventional lead-lagcontroller.

    Artificial Neural Network (ANN) based model is a computational approach commonly used for modeling the complex relationships between input and output parameters. Prediction of the flow rate of a river is a requisite for any successful water resource management and river basin planning. In the current survey, the effectiveness of an Artificial Neural Network was examined to predict the Colorado River discharge. In this modeling process, an ANN model was used to relate the discharge of the Colorado River to such parameters as the amount of precipitation, ambient temperature and snowpack level at a specific time of the year. The model was able to precisely study the impact of climatic parameters on the flow rate of the Colorado River.

    Full Text Available A hybrid approach for forward and inverse geophysical modeling, based on Artificial Neural Networks (ANN and Finite Element Method (FEM, is proposed in order to properly identify the parameters of volcanic pressure sources from geophysical observations at ground surface. The neural network is trained and tested with a set of patterns obtained by the solutions of numerical models based on FEM. The geophysical changes caused by magmatic pressure sources were computed developing a 3-D FEM model with the aim to include the effects of topography and medium heterogeneities at Etna volcano. ANNs are used to interpolate the complex non linear relation between geophysical observations and source parameters both for forward and inverse modeling. The results show that the combination of neural networks and FEM is a powerful tool for a straightforward and accurate estimation of source parameters in volcanic regions.

  17. Identification of Constitutive Parameters Using Inverse Strategy Coupled to an ANN Model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This paper deals with the identification of material parameters using an inverse strategy. In the classical methods, the inverse technique is generally coupled with a finite element code which leads to a long computing time. In this work an inverse strategy coupled with an ANN procedure is proposed. This method has the advantage of being faster than the classical one. To validate this approach an experimental plane tensile and bulge tests are used in order to identify material behavior. The ANN model is trained from finite element simulations of the two tests. In order to reduce the gap between the experimental responses and the numerical ones, the proposed method is coupled with an optimization procedure to identify material parameters for the AISI304. The identified material parameters are the hardening curve and the anisotropic coefficients
