    In 1994, the rural districts of Darmstadt-Dieburg, Bergstrasse, Odenwald and Gross-Gerau in southern Hessen and the town of Darmstadt concluded a cooperation agreement permitting them to meet the future demands of the technical code on municipal waste and the `Kreislaufwirtschafts- und Abfallgesetz` (act concerning waste recycling and waste management). In order to formally prepare different forms of cooperation and to accompany corresponding preliminary investigations, the Suedhessische Arbeitsgemeinschaft Abfallwirtschaft (SAGA) was founded as a municipal task force. SAGA`s task is to debate common affairs in the waste management sector with a view to joint planning and joint facilities. In particular, the requirements of the technical code on municipal waste must be met. (orig.) [Deutsch] Im Jahre 1994 haben die suedhessischen Landkreise Darmstadt-Dieburg, Bergstrasse, Odenwald, Gross-Gerau sowie die Stadt Darmstadt beschlossen, bezueglich der kuenftigen Anforderung der TA Siedlungsabfall und des Kreislaufwirtschafts- und Abfallgesetzes zu kooperieren. Zur formellen Vorbereitung von verschiedenen dann auszufuehrenden Kooperationsformen und zur Begleitung entsprechender Voruntersuchungen wurde die Suedhessische Arbeitsgemeinschaft Abfallwirtschaft (SAGA) als Kommunale Arbeitsgemeinschaft gegruendet. Aufgabe der Kommunalen Arbeitsgemeinschaft ist es, gemeinsam beruehrende Angelegenheiten im Abfallbereich unter dem Gesichtspunkt gemeinsamer Planung und gemeinsamer Einrichtungen zu beraten. Hierbei sollen insbesondere die Vorgaben der TA Siedlungsabfall beruecksichtigt werden. (orig.)

    This annual report focuses on Rhine water quality from the view of water treatment for drinking. While the 'classic' parameters, i.e. nutrients, salts, heavy metals, summary organic substance parameters have reached have reached a more or less satisfactory and stable level, there are always enhanced concentrations or new compounds of anthropogenic zenobiotics. [German] Die Arbeitsgemeinschaft Rhein-Wasserwerke e.V. (ARW) legt hiermit ihren 58. Jahresbericht vor, in dem ueber ihre Taetigkeiten, Ergebnisse aus dem Untersuchungsprogramm der Rhein-Wasserwerke and aktuelle Fragestellungen berichtet wird. In diesem Jahrsbericht wird wiederum schwerpunktmaessig auf die Beschaffenheit des Rheinwassers unter dem Aspekt der Trinkwassergewinnung eingegangen. Waehrend bei den klassischen Parametern (Naehrstoffe, Salze, Schwermetalle, summarische organische Messgroessen) inzwischen ein ueberwiegend guter chemischer Zustand erreicht ist, werden bei den anthropogenen xenobiotischen Einzelstoffen immer wieder erhoehte Konzentrationen oder 'neue' Verbindungen im Rhein entdeckt.

    This is the 57th annual report of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Rhein-Wasserwerke e.V. (ARW) on Rhine water quality from the view of drinking water supply. The positive trends continued in some fields, especially in the case of chloride concentrations and freights. On the other hand, there was a significant increase of some organic pollutants like DTPA, glyphosate and AMPA. The microbiological specifications of the new Drinking Water Ordinance and the concentrations of tensides and their metabolites are gone into. The ARW is worried about new or newly identified organic substances in Rhine water, especially as there is a lack of toxicological data on these substances and of data concerning their behaviour during freshwater preparation for drinking. [German] Die Arbeitsgemeinschaft Rhein-Wasserwerke e.V. (ARW) legt hiermit ihren nunmehr 57. Jahresbericht vor, in dem ueber ihre Aktivitaeten und wichtige Ergebnisse aus dem Untersuchungsprogramm der Rhein-Wasserwerke berichtet wird. Wie in den Vorjahren steht im Mittelpunkt der fachlichen Arbeiten der ARW die Bewertung der Rheinwasserbeschaffenheit aus Sicht der Trinkwasserversorgung. Im ersten Teil dieses Jahresberichtes sind die wichtigsten Ergebnisse zusammengefasst, die insgesamt erkennen lassen, dass sich die positiven Tendenzen bei vielen Wassergueteparametern auch im Berichtsjahr 2000 fortgesetzt haben. Dies gilt vor allem fuer die Chlorid-Konzentrationen und -Frachten im Rhein, die im Vergleich zum Vorjahr deutlich zurueckgegangen sind. Im Gegensatz dazu haben die Konzentrationen einiger organischer Einzelstoffe, wie z. B. DTPA sowie Glyphosat und AMPA, im Jahr 2000 z. T. deutlich zugenommen. Weiterhin sind in diesem Jahresbericht eine ausfuehrliche Zusammenstellung ueber die mikrobiologischen Anforderungen, die sich aus der neuen Trinkwasserverordnung ergeben sowie ein Bericht ueber das Vorkommen von Tensiden und deren Metaboliten in Oberflaechengewaessern, wie z. B. im Rhein, enthalten. Insbesondere das Auftreten

    The purpose of this study was to verify the age-, gender- and Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen (AO) type-specific clinical characters of adult tibial plateau fractures in 83 hospitals in China and to investigate whether altitude has potential relationships with adult tibial plateau fractures. A retrospective investigation was performed on consecutive patients with tibial plateau fractures treated in 83 hospitals in China between January 2010 and December 2011, data including age, gender and imaging were collected retrospectively through the PACS system and case reports checking system, imaging were classified into six types under fully qualified estimation based on AO classification. To further investigate imparities among different altitudes in China, all data were classified into four groups according to the centre altitudes of each city, G1 = plains group (2000 m). Comparison of gender distribution, age distribution and AO type were done. A total of 6,227 adult tibial plateau fractures were included. Men in the age range of 40-44 years were the most affected patients, and the overall high-risk injury type was 44-B. In four groups, the same peak age showed, namely, 40-44 years in males and 55-59 years in females. Age distribution showed no statistically significant difference in four groups (P > 0.05), while sex distribution and AO type indicated statistically significant differences (P age range are the most affected patients, and different sex distribution as well as injury type of adult tibial plateau fractures differed with various altitudes in China.

  10. Identification of economizing potentials in decommissioning and dismantling of German nuclear installations

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Weil, L.

    2000-01-01

    The study covers nuclear installations in Germany that belong to the responsibility of the Federal Government or Land governments and have been decommisioned, or are earmarked for decommissioning. These installations include zero power reactors (training reactors) and research reactors as well as power reactors, reprocessing plants and hot cells. Both the Federal Government and the Land governments are looking for measures to minimize the cost for dismantling and waste management, as the estimated expenses to be paid from public funds amount to a total of approx. DM 18 billion. The study was to review the required dismantling and waste management activities for identifying economizing potentials. The installations examined for this purpose are: 1. the VVER power reactors of EWN at Greifswald, 2. the Braunschweig research and mesuring reactor (FMRB) of PTB Braunschweig, 3. the MERLIN research reactor of Juelich Research Center (FZJ), 4. the AVR reactor of Arbeitsgemeinschaft Versuchsreaktor (AVR) GmbH, 5. the sodium-cooled reactor KNK II of Karlsruhe Research Center (FZK), 6. the reprocessing plant (MILLI) of FZK, 7. the Rossendorf research reactor (RFR) of Verein f. Kernverfahrenstechnik und Analytik Rossendorf e.V. (VKTA), 9. the installations for molybdenum production (AMOR) of the VKTA at Rossendorf. It is expected that the results elaborated with this study can be used as a datapool and general basis for suitably modified application for other installations. (orig./CB) [de

  20. Cooperation of the private companies Groupe Intra and Kerntechnische Hilfsdienst GmbH

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Dumas, J.; Neumann, W.

    1999-01-01

    For supporting companies running nuclear power plants and for eliminating the effects of an accident, Kerntechnischer Hilfsdienst GmbH (KHG) was founded in Germany in 1977 whereas Groupe Intra (GIE) was founded in France 1988. Since the activities and responsibilities of the two companies are partly the same, they got into contact rather early, at that time with the intention to exchange experience. However, in 1993 the intensified contact resulted in signing an agreement on mutual assistance. In the following passage, a general idea is given of both organisations, the agreement on mutual assistance and the experience of cooperation they have had so far. (orig.) [de

  1. Introduction of a quality management system at the Gemeinschaftskernkraftwerk Neckar GMBH (GKN)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Haug, W.; Graeber, U.

    1997-01-01

    In the course of commissioning unit II of the GKN nuclear power plant, a Quality Assurance Manual was introduced in 1988. The Quality Assurance Manual is essentially based on the quality assurance elements of KTA 1401; that is, the emphasis is on quality assurance procedures for safety relevant plant components. During the actual application of the Quality Assurance Manual, however, it soon became apparent that this one-dimensional approach to quality management is not sufficient for the efficient organization of the quality related operational processes and procedures. The management of GKN decided at the end of 1992 to carry out a revision of the Quality Assurance Manual, with the objective of using quality, within the meaning of DIN ISO 9001, as a comprehensive organizational element for all operational processes and procedures. BTB-Jansky GmbH, a consulting firm familiar with the operational processes and procedures was commissioned to revise the Quality Assurance Manual, to investigate the procedures and implement a quality management system. The introduction of the quality management system has made it possible for the quality relevant processes and procedures at GKN to be regulated comprehensively and in a systematically transparent and workable manner. The introduction of the quality management system took place within the framework of an efficiency raising programme. It becomes apparent from this that the introduction of a quality management system is able to provide economic benefits for the operator. (orig.)

    2018-01-03

    In metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC), the localization of the primary tumour has been shown to be of prognostic as well as predictive relevance. With the aim to investigate clinical and molecular disease characteristics with respect to sidedness in a real-world cohort, we analyzed 161 mCRC patients included in the KRAS Registry of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Medikamentöse Tumortherapie (AGMT) between January 2006 and October 2013. Right-sided mCRC displayed a worse median overall survival (OS) in comparison to left-sided disease (18.1 months [95%-CI: 14.3-40.7] versus 32.3 months [95%-CI: 25.5-38.6]; HR: 1.63 [95%-CI: 1.13-2.84]; p = 0.013). The choice of the biological agent in front-line therapy had a statistically significant impact on median OS in patients with right-sided tumours (anti-epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR): 10.6 months [95%-CI: 5.2-NA]; anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF): 26.2 months [95%-CI: 17.9-NA]; HR: 2.69 [95%-CI: 1.30-12.28]; p = 0.015) but not in patients with left-sided tumours (anti-EGFR: 37.0 months [95%-CI: 20.2-56.6]; anti-VEGF: 32.3 months [95%-CI: 23.6-41.1]; HR: 0.97 [95%-CI: 0.56-1.66]; p = 0.905). When evaluating molecular characteristics of tumour samples, we found a clinically meaningful trend towards an inferior OS in TP53 mutant mCRC treated with anti-EGFR based therapy compared to anti-VEGF based therapy (17.1 months [95%-CI: 8.7-NA] versus 38.3 months [95%-CI: 23.6-48.0], HR = 1.95 [95%-CI: 0.95-5.88]; p = 0.066), which was not significantly dependent on sidedness. This was not the case in patients with TP53 wild-type tumours. Therefore we evaluated the combined impact of sidedness and TP53 mutation status in the anti-EGFR treated cohort and patients with left-sided/TP53 wild-type mCRC showed the longest median OS (38.9 months) of all groups (right-sided/TP53 mutant: 12.1 months; right-sided/TP53 wild-type: 8.9 months; left-sided/TP53 mutant: 18.4 months; p = 0.020).

  8. Estimation of the emission of radioactive contaminated dust in connection with the remediation activities of the Wismut GmbH

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Loebner, W.; Lange, C.; Hinz, W.

    1998-01-01

    Radiological protection regulations require assessment of exposure to workers and the general public from the inhalation of contaminated dust due to remediation activities performed by WISMUT GmbH. Relocation activities of waste pile material and vehicle movements on contaminated surfaces are characterized as diffuse dust emissions. Specific measurements performed near working places were aimed at the quantification of dust generation rates. Findings of dust concentration measurements, particle size distributions and activity concentrations of longlived alpha emitters contained in dust during waste pile relocation activities are presented. In addition, investigations focused on dust release by wind erosion which is significantly determined by wind speed, soil roughness and soil properties (particle size distribution, moisture, crust formation). Quantification of dust release by wind erosion was performed under field conditions by means of a mobile wind tunnel. (orig.) [de

Dieses Ergebnis veranlasst uns heute, am Beginn des 5. Statusseminars, zu einem Rueckblick mit 19 Beitraegen, die im vorliegenden Bericht enthalten sind. Turbotech befasst sich mit der Verbesserung der fluidmechanischen Energieumsetzung in Turbomaschinen. Hier wurden schwerpunktmaessig Fragen behandelt, die sich mit der Analyse und mathematischen Beschreibung der realen Stroemung hochbelasteter Turbinen und Verdichter befassen. Die Beherrschung der hohen Temperaturen, insbesondere vor der Turbine, steht im Mittelpunkt des Interesses von Turbotherm. Fuer die Turbine konnten neue Herstellungstechnologien und erstmals keramische Werkstoffe auf ihre Eignung zum Einsatz in dieser untersucht werden. Aufgabe von Turboflam ist die Entwicklung moderner hochbelasteter Brennkammern mit einer stabilen, schadstoffarmen Verbrennung fuer fluessige und gasfoermige Brennstoffe. Zum Erreichen des Entwicklungszieles wurden die beiden Arbeitsschwerpunkte Brennkammermodellierung und Entwicklung neuer Brennkammerkonzepte gebildet. (orig./AKF)

    The publication explains, by means of specific measures, the management of aging in technical facilities as practiced in the plants of E.ON Kernkraft GmbH. First, the historical background is outlined and the reasons for introducing management of aging in order to limit and control factors influencing the lifetime of nuclear power plants are described. This is followed by a definition of management of aging in important safety-related facilities as against lifetime management of technical systems relevant to plant availability. This is the context in which the scope of the survey of continuous management of aging is defined in respect of physical aging. A classification is then made in accordance with the staggered requirements to be met in the quality of technical facilities. On the basis of the quality to be assured, the different component groups are assigned corresponding operational measures and explained. These continuous measures extend from failure-oriented maintenance to preventive maintenance to the integrity concept for technical installations. To document the findings and evaluate the effectiveness of the measures taken, the integration of the process is described and reference is made to continuous optimization according to PDCA principles. The explicit introduction of the process of management of aging creates a platform which allows a documentation to be accumulated of the manifold and comprehensive measures taken to control phenomena of aging in technical installations.

    Anlagen- und Kraftwerksrohrleitungsbau Greifswald, on behalf of Energiewerke Nord GmbH, Lubmin, plan and build a wet decontamination facility for the waste management center at Saida Bay, Russia (EZS). The plant is part of a large project with a total volume on the order of 3-digit millions funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economics and Technology. This project involves construction at Saida Bay near the port city of Murmansk of a complete waste management center and a long-term interim store for radioactively contaminated components. These components are mainly parts of decommissioned nuclear vessels and submarines whose metals, after decontamination, can be returned to economic use. The basis of the wet decontamination plant is a former AKB project for disposal and re-use of contaminated metal components of Energiewerke Nord GmbH at Lubmin, which is being adapted and developed further. The plant is to allow unrestricted re-use of the metals after surface cleaning and surface abrasion, respectively. For this purpose, the contaminated layer is removed far enough for the clearance limits under the Radiation Protection Ordinance to be met. A large fraction of the metals can be re-used after cleaning and do not have to be stored in a financially and logistically expensive process. The contract gives AKB an excellent opportunity to demonstrate its capabilities in plant construction, especially in the very sensitive area of disposal of radioactively contaminated objects.

  19. Operational experience with HTR-fuel in the AVR experimental power station

    1985-01-01

    The 15 MW experimental power station with HTR reactor, operated by Arbeitsgemeinschaft Versuchsreaktor (AVR) in Juelich, FRG, went into operation in 1967. One of its main tasks is to test different kinds of fuel elements and to demonstrate in how far the concept of the pebble-bed reactor permits a safe and reliable operation at high gas temperatures. Evaluation can be summarized as follows: Pressed fuel elements with highly enriched (UTh)C 2 with Biso coating show up a good retention capability for fission products up to hot-gas temperatures of 900 deg. C. No particle damages arise up to highest burnups. At higher temperatures mainly strontium is released which not only impedes repair works on the primary system, but also lowers corrosion resistance of fuel element graphite. Pressed fuel elements with highly enriched (ThU)O 2 and Biso coating shop up an excellent behaviour without particle damage, even at hog-gas temperatures of 950 deg. C. In particular all 15,000 fuel elements introduced since 1974 from the production for 300 MWe THTR confirm all results as expected. Special attention is paid to fuel elements with LEUTRISO particles that are being tested since 1982. Their excellent retention behaviour at hot-gas temperatures up to 950 deg. C is confirmed by the presently especially low coolant-gas activity. Because of the low burn-up of these elements it is still too early to make conclusive statements

    Endocrineously active substances are discharged into surface bodies of water with communal and industrial effluents. Especially estrogenic substances like Bisphenol A, alkyl phenols and alkyl phenol ethoxylates in the Elbe and its tributaries have been neglected so far. In the context of an interdisciplinary project, chemists, biologists and mathematicians investigated the concentrations and fate of these xenoestrogens, relative potential effects of unknown water constituents and quantitative statistical mechanisms based on the available analytical findings. The contribution intends to contribute information on the pollutant situation of selected endocrineously active substances in the Elbe and its tributaries. [German] Ein relevanter Eintragspfad fuer endokrin wirksame Stoffe in die Oberflaechengewaesser sind die Abwaesser kommunaler und industrieller Klaeranlagen. Insbesondere das Vorkommen und der Verbleib von oestrogen wirkenden Stoffen wie Bisphenol A, den Alkylphenolen und Alkylphenolethoxylaten in der Elbe und in Elbenebenfluessen wurde bisher zu wenig Aufmerksamkeit geschenkt. In einem interdisziplinaeren Projekt, an dem sich Chemiker, Biologen und Mathematiker beteiligten, wird versucht, eine erste Antwort zu geben ueber das Vorkommen und den Verbleib dieser Xenooestrogene, ueber relative Wirkpotenzen von unbekannten Wasserinhaltsstoffen durch die Anwendung von In-vitro-Tests und ueber quantitative statistische Zusammenhaenge, die auf vorhandenen Analysenergebnissen basieren. Dieser Bericht soll einen Beitrag leisten zur Immissionssituation von ausgewaehlten endokrin wirksamen Stoffen in der Elbe und in Elbenebenfluessen. (orig.)

    This special report focuses on measurements of elements whose scope goes far beyond the routine monitoring for metals. The present studies are intended to extend the existing knowledge on the pollution situation of the Elbe and certain of its tributaries as well as provide a basis for formulating future guidelines for action. The first step towards this goal is sampling by means of an helicopter. The sampling is followed by a very involved and costly analysis programme, accompanied by extensive quality assurance measures. This is the only way of reliably analysing a large number of elements occurring in extremely low concentrations. Once the data have been recorded the question arises how they are to be evaluated. What schemes are suitable for categorising a large number of elements measured in either the suspended matter or the water compartment? What elements are to be regarded as the result of anthropogenic influences and what are their respective background concentrations in the fluvial system under study? These questions are approached by means of statistical methods which permit identifying elemental patterns and pollution sources as well as optimising the selection of measuring points for future studies. [German] In diesem Sonderbericht steht die Bestimmung von Elementen, die in ihrem Umfang ueber die routinemaessig erfassten Metalle deutlich hinausgeht, im Vordergrund. Die vorliegenden Untersuchungen sollen das bereits vorhandene Wissen zur Beschreibung der Immissionssituation der Elbe und von bestimmten Nebenfluessen erweitern, verbunden mit der Moeglichkeit, zukuenftige Handlungsmaximen zu erarbeiten. Zur Erreichung dieses Ziels steht zu Beginn die Probenahme mit einem Helicopter. Im Anschluss an die Probenahme folgt eine sehr aufwendige und teure Analytik, die begleitet wird von umfassenden Massnahmen zur Qualitaetssicherung. Nur so ist es moeglich, eine grosse Vielzahl von Elementen in extrem niedrigen Konzentrationen sicher analysieren zu koennen. Sind die Daten erhoben, schliesst sich die Frage nach ihrer Bewertung an. Welche Schemata sind tauglich, um eine Vielzahl von Elementen, die in den unterschiedlichen Kompartimenten Schwebstoff und Wasser bestimmt werden, einstufen zu koennen? Welche Elemente sind als anthropogen beeinflusst zu bezeichnen, welche Konzentrationen stellen den background in dem betrachteten Flusssystem vor? Zur Beantwortung dieser Fragen wird sich der Statistik bedient, denn mit ihrer Hilfe koennen Elementmuster identifiziert, Belastungsquellen aufgezeigt und darueber hinaus die Auswahl von Messstellen fuer kuenftige Untersuchungen optimiert werden.

    The present report contains results on the occurrence of polar and nonpolar substances in the Elbe and selected tributaries which were analysed in the period from 1994 to 1999. It shows that industrial and municipal purification plants still have an insufficient cleaning capacity for certain substances. The process by which ubiquitous pollutants can enter the Elbe via a small, widely ramified fluvial system is exemplified for the family of chloroalkyl phosphates. These mainly occur in flame retardants and plasticisers in polyurethanes. The paper also presents results from a selection of 28 substances listed in Directive 76/464/ECC. They provide a decision aid for the planning of future measuring concepts based on the EU Water Framework Directive. In the ARGE ELBE programme organic pollutants are recorded and published on a routine basis. These are mostly nonpolar substances such as the well-known polychlorinated biphenyls or slow-evaporating insecticidal chlorinated hydrocarbons such as DTT. Recent analysis results show that this group of substances is relevant now as before and that it will remain so for the years to come. Special studies involving aqueous phase measurements were performed on a different group of substances, namely polar substances, which are generally readily soluble. The substances on which this report is chiefly focused originate from different sources: industrial and municipal effluents, diffuse inputs from agriculture and atmospheric depositions. In many cases they are difficultly degradable and could attain significance where river water in the form of river bank filtrate is used for drinking water production. However, due to complex and effective purification technologies they rarely enter drinking water. [German] Der vorliegende Bericht enthaelt Ergebnisse zum Vorkommen polarer und unpolarer Stoffe in der Elbe und in ausgewaehlten Nebenfluessen, die in dem Zeitraum von 1994 bis 1999 analysiert worden sind. Er zeigt, dass fuer einzelne Stoffe noch Defizite im Hinblick auf die Reinigungsleistung industrieller und kommunaler Klaeranlagen existieren. Wie ubiquitaer vorhandene Schadstoffe ueber ein kleines und weitverzweigtes Fliesssystem in die Elbe gelangen koennen, wird beispielhaft an der Stoffklasse der Chloralkylphosphate aufgezeigt. Diese finden hauptsaechlich Verwendung als Flammschutzmittel und Weichmacher in Polyurethanen. Ergebnisse einer Auswahl von 28 Stoffen aus der Richtlinie 76/464/EWG werden ebenfalls vorgestellt. Sie sind eine Entscheidungshilfe fuer die Planung zukuenftiger Messkonzepte auf der Grundlage der EU-Wasserrahmenrichtlinie. Mit dem Messprogramm der ARGE ELBE werden organische Schadstoffe routinemaessig erfasst und veroeffentlicht. Dabei handelt es sich ueberwiegend um unpolare Stoffe wie die hinlaenglich bekannten polychlorierten Biphenyle oder die schwerfluechtigen chlorierten Kohlenwasserstoffe mit insektizider Wirkung (z.B. DDT). Neuere Analysenergebnisse zeigen, dass diese Stoffgruppe nach wie vor relevant ist und auch in den kommenden Jahren nicht an Bedeutung verlieren wird. Eine andere Stoffgruppe, die polaren und im allgemeinen gut wasserloeslichen Substanzen, werden im Rahmen von Sonderuntersuchungen in der waessrigen Phase bestimmt. Die in diesem Bericht hauptsaechlich behandelten Stoffe stammen aus unterschiedlichen Quellen: industrielle und kommunale Abwaesser, diffuse Eintraege aus der Agrarwirtschaft und aus atmosphaerischen Depositionen. In vielen Faellen sind sie biologisch schwer abbaubar und koennen Bedeutung erlangen, wenn Flusswasser als Uferfiltrat fuer die Trinkwasserherstellung genutzt wird. Wegen der aufwendigen und wirkungsvollen Aufbereitungstechnologie gelangen sie allerdings nur selten bis ins Trinkwasser. (orig.)

  5. Nuclear energy research funding 1956-2002: Startup financing or subsidy?

    2004-01-01

    Different figures, some of them extremely large, some even interpreted as subsidies, have been publicized about public funding of the development of nuclear power for electricity generation. An attempt is made in this article to quantify the research funds directly attributable to the present use of nuclear power, put the research funds spent into a relationship to the electricity generated from nuclear power, and put a number on the economic benefit of the money spent. In the past, R and D work on the utilization of nuclear power was financed by various federal ministries. As in other technology-related areas, funds were made available for specific projects, on the one hand, and through financing the national research centers, on the other hand. Relatively small amounts were spent on the development of the light water reactor (LWR) line, most of them in the 1950s and 1960s. Considerably greater expenditures were incurred by the federal government for reactor safety. R and D of the fast breeder (LMFBR) was conducted chiefly between 1960 and 1993. Research into the high temperature (HTR) reactor line focused mainly on the plant built by the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Versuchsreaktor (AVR) association, and the thorium high temperature reactor (THTR-300) at a later date. Nuclear fuel cycle activities were started early in the 1950s. The decommissioning and dismantling of nuclear plants plays but a minor role in public funding. Nuclear fusion, on the other hand, is a major research area. The nuclear power plants now generating electricity from nuclear power have never received any subsidies, and their economic benefit is beyond any doubt. The public funds spent on R and D were intended to be startup funds. They convincingly served their purpose in those cases where the technologies supported in this way have been able to take off.

    The report provides the necessary background information required for understanding the measuring programme and its data and provides a parameter-specific discussion of the water quality on the basis of selected parameters. It addresses universities and public administrations but also interested laymen. The report shows inhowfar the goals defined in the 1989 programme for improving the water quality of the Weser river area have been reached: Reduction of water pollution of the Weser from hazardous substances; Reduction of nutrient pollution; Reduction of chloride pollution. The Weser water today is in quality range II of the biological water classification. This is a positive result. The chloride freight was reduced as well as pollution reduction measures were taken in the potassium mines of Thuringia. Further efforts are still required, however; they are defined in the new programme 'Aktionsprogramm Flussgebiet Weser 2000-2010' which already incorporates the specifications of the soon-to-be-issued EC water quality regulation. [German] Im Weserguetebericht werden die fuer das Verstaendnis notwendigen Hintergrundinformationen zu den Messprogrammen und den darin enthaltenen Kenngroessen ergeben und anhand von ausgewaehlten Darstellungen die Wasserqualitaet parameterspezifisch diskutiert.

Darueber hinaus gibt der Guetebericht auch Auskunft, inwieweit die 1989 im Aktionsprogramm Weser formulierten Ziele zur Verbesserung der oekologischen Verhaeltnisse in und an der Weser erreicht werden: - Reduzierung der Belastung der Weser durch gefaehrliche Stoffe - Verringerung der Naehrstoffbelastung - Reduzierung der Chloridbelastung. Die Weser weist heute ueberwiegend die biologische Gewaesserguete II auf. Dies ist das positive Ergebnis des 1989 beschlossenen Aktionsprogrammes. Deutliche Erfolge wurden auch im Hinblick auf die Reduzierung der Chloridbelastung erzielt. So konnten gegen Ende 1998 die Massnahmen des Abkommens - zur Senkung der Salzbelastung - aus den thueringischen Kaliwerken erfolgreich abgeschlossen und 1999 in Betrieb genommen werden. Gleichwohl sind weitere Anstrengungen noetig, dies zeigt auch das neue Aktionsprogramm Flussgebiet Weser 2000-2010, das bereits die Vorstellungen und Anforderungen der kommenden EU-Wasserrahmenrichtlinie aufgreift.

  12. Fuel-Cycle and Nuclear Material Disposition Issues Associated with High-Temperature Gas Reactors

    Shropshire, D.E.; Herring, J.S.

    2004-01-01

    The objective of this paper is to facilitate a better understanding of the fuel-cycle and nuclear material disposition issues associated with high-temperature gas reactors (HTGRs). This paper reviews the nuclear fuel cycles supporting early and present day gas reactors, and identifies challenges for the advanced fuel cycles and waste management systems supporting the next generation of HTGRs, including the Very High Temperature Reactor, which is under development in the Generation IV Program. The earliest gas-cooled reactors were the carbon dioxide (CO2)-cooled reactors. Historical experience is available from over 1,000 reactor-years of operation from 52 electricity-generating, CO2-cooled reactor plants that were placed in operation worldwide. Following the CO2 reactor development, seven HTGR plants were built and operated. The HTGR came about from the combination of helium coolant and graphite moderator. Helium was used instead of air or CO2 as the coolant. The helium gas has a significant technical base due to the experience gained in the United States from the 40-MWe Peach Bottom and 330-MWe Fort St. Vrain reactors designed by General Atomics. Germany also built and operated the 15-MWe Arbeitsgemeinschaft Versuchsreaktor (AVR) and the 300-MWe Thorium High-Temperature Reactor (THTR) power plants. The AVR, THTR, Peach Bottom and Fort St. Vrain all used fuel containing thorium in various forms (i.e., carbides, oxides, thorium particles) and mixtures with highly enriched uranium. The operational experience gained from these early gas reactors can be applied to the next generation of nuclear power systems. HTGR systems are being developed in South Africa, China, Japan, the United States, and Russia. Elements of the HTGR system evaluated included fuel demands on uranium ore mining and milling, conversion, enrichment services, and fuel fabrication; fuel management in-core; spent fuel characteristics affecting fuel recycling and refabrication, fuel handling, interim

    The First Technical Report of the project 'Analysis of Seasonal Storage of Solar Heat in Mines' describes the local terms of construction and operation of a shaft storage at the 'Bergwerk General Blumenthal/Haard' in Recklinghausen. For the installation of a pilot storage the Shaft No. 6 should be chosen because of the better condition of the shaft walling and the greater diameter in comparison with Shaft No. 2. As the result of the objective of operational reliability only the leakproof metal tubbing array in the shaft should be used. In compliance with this rule, a system with a volume of 2,155 m{sup 3} is designated for the Shaft No. 6 (storage height 63 m). The storage is only insulated at the top. A gravel/water filling guarantees static strength of the site. With a vertical distance of 1.5 m, 42 pipe coils should be installed, evenly distributed across the cross section and connected to 10 temperature-dependent controllable layers. Each pipe coil consists of 100 m steel pipes with an inside diameter of 2.5 cm. Simulation calculations show that storage efficiencies higher than 80% can be expected. The efficiencies and the discharged energy considerably depend on the temperature level of the district heat netowrk. The collector area and the quantity of heat have a comparatively smaller influence on the storage operation results. The specific investment costs of the shaft storage at the location 'General Blumenthal 6' were calculated to 477 DM/m{sup 3}. A reduction of the specific costs can be achieved especially by the use of larger storage volumes in the future. (orig.) [German] Im vorliegenden Bericht werden die Rahmenbedingungen fuer den Bau und Betrieb eines Schachtspeichers am Beispiel des Standortes Bergwerk General Blumenthal/Haard in Recklinghausen konkretisiert. Da der Schacht 2 in einem deutlich schlechteren Zustand ist und einen kleineren Schachtdurchmesser aufweist, ist es sinnvoll, den Schacht 6 fuer die Installation eines Pilotspeichers zu nutzen. Aufgrund des Zieles einer moeglichst hohen Betriebssicherheit sollte fuer den Schachtspeicher der eigendichte Abschnitt mit Tuebbingausbau, der in diesem Fall bis 70 m Teufe reicht, verwendet werden. Abzueglich eines unteren Ueberlappungsbereiches und des Schachtkellers ergibt sich somit eine nutzbare Speicherhoehe von rund 63 m, was einem Volumen von etwa 2.155 m{sup 3} entspricht. Der Speicher wird nur am Kopf waermegedaemmt. Der Schachtspeicher wird mit einer Kies/Wasser-Fuellung versehen. In diese werden mit einem vertikalen Abstand von 1,5 m insgesamt 42 Rohrschlangenebenen eingebracht, die jeweils aus gleichmaessig ueber die Querschnittsflaeche verteilten Stahlrohren DN 25 mit einer Gesamtlaenge von knapp 100 m bestehen. Diese Ebenen werden zu insgesamt 10 temperaturabhaengig ansteuerbaren Schichten zusammengefasst. Durchgefuehrte Simulationsrechnungen zeigen, dass ein Grubenspeicher im quasistationaeren Zustand Nutzungsgrade von ueber 80% erreichen kann. Die Nutzungsgrade und damit die nutzbaren solaren Waermemengen haengen vor allem vom Temperaturniveau des Nahwaermenetzes ab. Die Groesse der Kollektorflaeche und die Hoehe der Waermelast der Verbraucher haben nur einen vergleichsweise geringen Einfluss auf die Leistungsfaehigkeit des Speichers. Bei positiver, aber realistischer Einschaetzung der Randbedingungen ergeben sich fuer den projektierten Pilotspeicher am Standort General Blumenthal 6 spezifische Investitionskosten in Hoehe von 477 DM/m{sup 3}. Eine Verringerung dieses Wertes ist vor allem durch die Vergroesserung des Speichervolumens bei zukuenftigen Anlagen moeglich. (orig.)

  19. Nowcasting wind power for grid operation at RWE Transportnetz from Strom GmbH (RWE TSO)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Ernst, B.; Vanzetta, J.

    2008-01-01

    This paper presented new methods of balancing power supply and demand for electricity systems that have a large share of wind power. Wind power forecasting plays a key role in integrating a large share of wind power into an electricity system, as it links the weather dependent production with the scheduled production of conventional power plants and the forecast of the electricity demand. Wind power forecasts are essential for grid operation. Since most European electricity markets focus on the day ahead market, wind balancing is also done the day ahead. A current trend is that the intra day markets are increasing in popularity and becoming more liquid. Therefore, nowcasting will play a vital role in improving wind power related economics because shorter timeframes are much easier and better to predict. Nowcasting uses actual measurements of weather and also considers power data. Many wind power prediction tools for day ahead forecasts are available. Most models have 3 common steps, notably numerical weather prediction, wind-to-power model and regional up-scaling. A comparison between recent measurements with the output of numerical weather models showed that nowcasting provides a forecast that outperforms a pure numerical weather forecast. The first results were very promising. All 3 nowcasting solutions were found to have their own unique advantages and limitations. Ongoing research will continue to improve wind power prediction. 2 refs., 3 figs

    2005-01-01

    In a ceremony held on the construction site, members of the company's management, Supervisory Board, and the participating firms laid the foundation stone for the expansion of the Gronau Enrichment Facility, UAG-2, seven months after having received the permit for completing the final stage of expansion. The first unit, with its gas centrifuges, will go on stream probably in mid-2007. The present capacity of the plant is approx. 1 700 t SWU per annum. Expansion will allow the capacity to be increased to 4 500 t. The redesigned Information Center of Urenco Deutschland is to achieve an even better position of Urenco in the public mind and to set standards in the nuclear industry. The foundation stone ceremony of UAG-2 was held simultaneously with the inauguration of the Information Center. Up to 3000 visitors annually are informed about the technology and processes of uranium enrichment at the Center. (orig.)

    During the year 1991 the work concentrated on building the Cooler Synchrotron COSY-Juelich. The experimental activity was accompanied by theoretical studies in the field of medium energy nuclear physics. The preparation of COSY experiments concerned the realization of multipurpose facilities and other experiments. Work going on in the field of theoretical nuclear physics was strongly connected with research projects at COSY and processes induced in the proton-antiproton interaction. Through nuclear spectroscopy two-phonon octupole excitation had been identified in Gd-148. The ISIS ECR source has been used for the production of ion beams for atomic physics research. (DG)

    The activity of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-directed monoclonal antibody cetuximab combined with oxaliplatin/leucovorin/5-fluorouracil (FUFOX) was assessed in first-line metastatic gastric and oesophago-gastric junction (OGJ) cancer in a prospective phase II study showing a promising objective tumour response rate of 65% and a low mutation frequency of KRAS (3%). The aim of the correlative tumour tissue studies was to investigate the relationship between EGFR gene copy numbers, activation of the EGFR pathway, expression and mutation of E-cadherin, V600E BRAF mutation and clinical outcome of patients with gastric and OGJ cancer treated with cetuximab combined with FUFOX. Patients included in this correlative study (n = 39) were a subset of patients from the clinical phase II study. The association between EGFR gene copy number, activation of the EGFR pathway, abundance and mutation of E-cadherin which plays an important role in these disorders, BRAF mutation and clinical outcome of patients was studied. EGFR gene copy number was assessed by FISH. Expression of the phosphorylated forms of EGFR and its downstream effectors Akt and MAPK, in addition to E-cadherin was analysed by immunohistochemistry. The frequency of mutant V600E BRAF was evaluated by allele-specific PCR and the mutation profile of the E-cadherin gene CDH1 was examined by DHPLC followed by direct sequence analysis. Correlations with overall survival (OS), time to progression (TTP) and overall response rate (ORR) were assessed. Our study showed a significant association between increased EGFR gene copy number (≥ 4.0) and OS in gastric and OGJ cancer, indicating the possibility that patients may be selected for treatment on a genetic basis. Furthermore, a significant correlation was shown between activated EGFR and shorter TTP and ORR, but not between activated EGFR and OS. No V600E BRAF mutations were identified. On the other hand, an interesting trend between high E-cadherin expression levels and better OS was observed and two CDH1 exon 9 missense mutations (A408V and D402H) were detected. Our finding that increased EGFR gene copy numbers, activated EGFR and the E-cadherin status are potentially interesting biomarkers needs to be confirmed in larger randomized clinical trials.

    Spain has to manage about 3700 tons of irradiated graphite from the reactor Vandellos I as radioactive waste. 2700 tons are the stack of the reactor and are still in the reactor core waiting for retrieval. The rest of the quantities, 1000 tons, are the graphite sleeves which have been already retrieved from the reactor. During operation the graphite sleeves were stored in a silo and during the dismantling stage a retrieval process was carried out separating the wires from the graphite, which were crushed and introduced into 220 cubic containers of 6 m{sup 3} each and placed in interim storage. The graphite is an intermediate level radioactive waste but it contains long lived radionuclides like {sup 14}C which disqualifies disposal at the low level waste repository of El Cabril. Therefore, a new project has been started in order to investigate two new options for the management of this waste type. The first one is based on a selective decontamination of {sup 14}C by thermal methods. This method is based on results obtained at the Research Centre Juelich (FZJ) in the Frame of the EC programs 'Raphael' and 'Carbowaste'. The process developed at FZJ is based on a preferential oxidation of {sup 14}C in comparison to the bulk {sup 12}C. Explanations for this effect are the inhomogeneous distribution and a weaker bounding of {sup 14}C which is not incorporated in the graphite lattice. However these investigations have only been performed with graphite from the high temperature reactor Arbeitsgemeinschaft Versuchsreaktor Juelich AVR which has been operated in a non-oxidising condition or research reactor graphite operated at room temperature. The reactor Vandellos I has been operated with CO{sub 2} as coolant and significant amounts of graphite have been already oxidised. The aim of the project is to validate whether a {sup 14}C decontamination can also been achieved with graphite from Vandellos I. A second possibility under investigation is the

    1989-01-01

    The plaintiff worked 10 hours a week for the defendant and, when she became ill, sought payment of her wages under the German sick pay law. After her employer refused to pay her, citing a provision of the German law that exempted employers from paying for sickness leave when a worker works fewer than 10 hours a week, she challenged the law as violating equal pay provisions of Article 119 of the European Communities Treaty. To support her challenge she pointed to statistics showing that a far greater percentage of workers working no more than 10 hours a week were women than men. Upon referral of the case by the German court hearing it, the European Court of Justice held that Article 119 precludes national legislation permitting employers to exclude from payment of sick pay employees who do not work more than 10 hours a week if that measure affects a far greater number of men than women, unless it is shown that the legislation is justified by objective facts unrelated to any discrimination based on sex. It also ruled that it was up to the German court to determine whether the legislation in question was so justified.

    This final report for the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) reviews the results of a study made on the reduction in electricity consumption that can be achieved by the use of T5 energy-saving adapters instead of older T12 and T8 fluorescent tubes. Installations were made in various locations, including post offices, shops, offices and medical practices. The adapters, which allow the use of the shorter T5 lamps in existing fittings and include the electronic starters necessary, are described. Figures on energy savings made and amortisation times are presented and discussed, as are the subjective improvements resulting from the use of modern starter technology. Examples are also quoted of installations where the technology cannot be used for space reasons.

  12. Status of the HTR 500 design program

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Baust, E.; Arndt, E.

    1987-01-01

    Since 1982 BBC/HRB have offered the HTR 500 as the follow-on project of the THTR 300, the first large pebble bed reactor. The technical concept of the HTR-500 largely corresponds to the THTR 300 which has been in operation for almost 2 years now. In developing the design concept of the HTR 500 the ideas and demands of the reactor users in the FRG interested in the HTR have been taken into consideration to a large extent. In 1982 these potential users formed a working group 'Arbeitsgemeinschaft Hochtemperaturreaktor' (AHR), representing 16 power indusry companies and in early 1983, awarded a contract to HRB to perform a conceptual design study on the HTR 500. Within this conceptual design study BBC/HRB developed the safety concept of the HTR 500, prepared a detailed description of the overall power plant, and performed a cost calculation. These activities were completed in 1984. Based on the positive results of this conceptual design study, BBC/HRB are expecting to be granted a design contract by the users company Hochtemperaturreaktor GmbH (HRG) to establish the final complete design plans and documents for the HTR 500.

    SVZ Schwarze Pumpe is a plant for production of synthesis gas from hydrocarbon-containing materials and for synthesis gas utilisation as chemical feedstock and for power generation. In the trial operation phase of 1992-1994 and the commercial operation since 1995, about 372,800 t of solid waste were processed (about 255,100 t of which were waste platics), and about 372,800 t of liquid and pasty waste. The waste composition may vary considerably. Since 1995, gasification of preprocessed domestic waste has been an area of particular interest. In all cases, pollutant emissions were found to be below the legal specifications. The synthesis gas has a high degree of purity, while the gasifier slag is classified as class I waste as specified in the TA Siedlungsabfall (Technical Code for Domestic Waste Management). (orig./SR) [Deutsch] Der Geschaeftszweck des SVZ Schwarze Pumpe besteht in der Herstellung von Synthesegas aus kohlenwasserstoffhaltigen Einsatzstoffen und in der stofflichen und energetischen Nutzung des Werkstoffes Synthesegas. In umfangreichen Mess- und Betriebsfahrten wurden in den Jahren 1992-1994 und im kommerziellen Betrieb seit 1995 ca. 372.800 t feste Abfallstoffe, davon ca. 255.100 t Altkunststoffe, und ca. 436.800 t fluessige und pastoese Abfaelle verarbeitet. Die Abfaelle werden in Mischungen, die in weiten Grenzen variiert werden koennen, eingesetzt. Einen besonderen Entwicklungsschwerpunkt seit 1995 stellt die Vergasung von speziell aufbereitetem Hausmuell dar. In allen Betriebsfaellen konnte ein sehr umweltvertraeglicher Betrieb nachgewiesen werden. Das erzeugte Synthesegas ist extrem gereinigt, die Vergaserschlacken erfuellen die Anforderungen an die Deponieklasse I der TA Siedlungsabfall. (orig./SR)

    Job-related hand dermatitis heads up the list of reported occupational diseases. So-called skin products - understood to mean protective creams, skin cleansers and skin care products - are used for the primary and secondary prevention of job- related hand dermatitis. In the interests of evidence-based medicine, the only preventive measures and/or occupational skin products that should be used are those whose potential uses and efficacy are underpinned by scientific research. To this end, the Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Berufs- und Umweltdermatologie e.V. (Working Group for Occupational and Environmental Dermatology, ABD) of the DDG (German Dermatological Society) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Arbeits- und Umweltmedizin (German Society for Occupational and Environmental Medicine, DGAUM) have summed up the latest scientific findings and recommendations in the updated guideline. The benefit of the combined application of protective creams and skin care products in the primary and secondary prevention of work-related contact dermatitis has been widely confirmed by recent clinical-epidemiological studies. The guideline clearly explains the necessity of demonstrating the efficacy of protective creams and cleansing products by means of in vivo methods in the sense of repetitive applications. Transferable standardised testing systems designed to examine the irritation potential and thus the compatibility of occupational skin cleansers and the reduction of irritation by protective skin creams have now been developed and validated by multicentre studies for skin protection creams and cleansers. The status of the current assessment of the safety of occupational skin products is also summarised. © 2015 The Authors | Journal compilation © Blackwell Verlag GmbH, Berlin.

    The communication- and trade-mark politics gain more importance in these times of increasing competition. Custom-made market strategies - for customer groups which increasingly specialize - have to be developed in order to be able to successfully act in this market i.e. to successfully maintain the current market position. Total customer satisfaction - which up to now was the non-plus-ultra for the energy branch - has become insufficient, the goal now is called 'customer loyalty'. And the energy industry has to strive for this goal, i.e. they have to win the customer as an 'active participant', as a multiplier on an increasingly stronger fought-for-market. In order to achieve this, clear strategic concepts are necessary as well as the continuous control of the communicating effect of the instruments used. (orig.) [German] Kommunikations- und Markenpolitik gewinnen im verschaerften Wettbewerb an Bedeutung. Massgeschneiderte Marketingstrategien - fuer sich zunehmend differenzierende Kundengruppen - muessen entwickelt werden, um zukuenftig erfolgreich am Markt agieren zu koennen bzw. die Marktposition behaupten zu koennen. Hohe Kundenzufriedenheit - vor kurzem noch das non plus ultra der Energiebranche - ist bereits nicht ausreichend, das Ziel heisst 'Kundenloyalitaet'. Um diese muessen sich die Energiedienstleistungsunternehmen bemuehen, d.h. sie muessen den Kunden als 'aktive Vollreferenz', als Multiplikator auf einem zunehmend staerker umkaempften Markt gewinnen. Dazu notwendig sind klare strategische Konzepte und die laufende Kontrolle der Kommunikationswirkung der eingesetzten Instrumente. (orig.)

    The emission of a neutral exciton in a symmetric semiconductor quantum dot is split by the isotropic electron-hole exchange interaction into dark and bright states. We demonstrate that for a doubly charged exciton, there are also two states split by the electron-hole exchange, but both states are now bright. We also uncover a fine structure in the emission from the triply charged exciton, the singly and doubly charged biexcitons. By measuring these splittings we can access the isotropic exchange energies for holes in the ground and electrons ground and excited states.

    Full Text Available Wenn über Kriminalität gesprochen wird, scheint es sich um ein reines Männerthema zu handeln. Sind die Frauen wirklich weniger straffällig als die Männer? Die Frau als Straftäterin wird in der Literatur vernachlässigt. In der modernen Kriminologie erscheint die Frau fast nur in der Opferrolle. Die angeführte Studie befaßt sich mit den Fragen, die sich aus dieser Problematik ergeben. Die Straffälligkeit der Frauen wird einer multidisziplinären Analyse unterzogen, traditionelle und moderne Erklärungsansätze werden systematisiert und in Verbindung zueinander gebracht. Anhand von Statistiken werden sowohl die Anzahl der Straftäterinnen als auch die Delikte, die scheinbar frauentypisch sind, untersucht und zwischen den Modellen der mediterranen und nordeuropäischen Länder verglichen. Es überrascht, dass es so gut wie keine internationalen oder nationalen Programme zur Verbrechensvorbeugung bezüglich der Frauenkrimialität gibt. Scheint es doch so, dass der Staat als einzige Antwort auf dieses Phänomen die Strafverfolgung kennt (traditionelles Strafrecht. Untersuchungen in Strafanstalten zeigen aber, dass die Frauen in den meisten Fällen aufgrund ihres sozialen Umfelds und ihrer geringeren Chancen auf Ausbildung und Ausübung eines Berufes zur Straftäterin werden. Eine effiziente Kriminalpolitik müsste mit der Ungleichbehandlung der Frauen aufräumen und eine adäquate Sozialisierung für die Frauen schaffen, die oft auf sich gestellt und mit der Versorgung ihrer Familie überfordert sind. Es stellt sich heraus, dass, wenn über ein vereintes Europa gesprochen wird, die Wirklichkeit einer gemeinsamen europäischen Kriminalpolitik noch weit entfernt ist. Außerdem wird die Ernsthaftigkeit dieses Vorhabens bezweifelt, da zuviele Unterschiede, Differenzen und Vorbehalte unter den europäischen Mitgliedsstaaten bestehen. Es handelt sich eher um ein fadenscheiniges Agieren der Politiker.

    Atomic force microscopy (AFM) is a mechanical profiling technique that allows to image surfaces with atomic resolution. Recent progress in reducing the noise of this technique has led to a resolution level where previously undetectable symmetries of the images of single atoms are observed. These symmetries are related to the nature of the interatomic forces. The Si(111)-(7 × 7) surface is studied by AFM with various tips and AFM images are simulated with chemical and electrostatic model forces. The calculation of images from the tip-sample forces is explained in detail and the implications of the imaging parameters are discussed. Because the structure of the Si(111)-(7 × 7) surface is known very well, the shape of the adatom images is used to determine the tip structure. The observability of atomic orbitals by AFM and scanning tunneling microscopy is discussed.

    This speech was held by the Federal Home Secretary Baum in front of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft fuer Umweltfragen (AGU) on 3rd February 1981. He said that environmental policy must be determined even more by the principle of providence in this decade; the main issue is the orientation towards the future in German economic, social, and welfare policy. Vehicles and environment, vehicle noise, advantageous conditions in competition for environmentally-minded and energy conserving vehicles, nuclear energy etc., and international pollution protection are considered focal points of future environmental policy. According to his opinion, the consumption situation and compatibility tests as to environmental conditions are necessary. Increasing pollution protection ought to be promoted by special financing programmes and model projects of the Federal Government. (HSCH) [de

    Innovation entstand und entsteht in der Medizin häufig aus dem Bedürfnis des Klinikers heraus, bestehende chirurgische Techniken zu verbessern oder durch die Einführung neuer Methoden, chirurgische Zugänge zu ermöglichen, welche für den Patienten weniger traumatisch und für den Chirurgen technisch einfacher und damit sicherer sind. Historisch gesehen wurden Innovationen bis weit in die zweite Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts vor allem durch Kliniker angeregt und auch massgeblich mitentwickelt. Als illustrative Beispiele hierfür seien die heute immer noch führenden und auch kommerziell sehr erfolgreichen Entwicklungen von Osteosynthesetechniken und Implantaten durch die AO (Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen) oder auch die Einführung endoskopischer Operationstechniken erwähnt.

    The further development of the chemotherapy of cancer in the experimental and clinical fields necessitates a profound knowledge of its chemical, biochemical and pharmacological fundamentals and the mechanism of physiological and pathological growth processes. The 'Arbeitsgemeinschaft Zytostatika' includes chemists, biochemists, pharmacologists, molecular biologists, physicians and immunologists of various scientific institutes and clinics in the Federal Republic of Germany and in West Berlin. It is their aim to carry out basic research as well as clinical-orientated research in the field of the chemotherapy of cancer. In the 15 years of cooperation, fundamental knowledge was gained, especially in the field of the cytotoxic specificity and cancerotoxic selectivity of alkylating cytostatics. New cytostatics with a greater oncostatic selectivity and an altered spectrum of activity were tested and greater knowledge was won on the molecular-biological prerequisites of a rational drug design.

  8. Nuclear process heat at high temperature: Application, realization and development programme

    1976-01-01

    Studies in the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG), the USA and the United Kingdom have shown that high-temperature helium energy from an HTR can advantageously be utilized for coal gasification and other fossil fuel conversion processes, and that a substantial demand for substitute natural gas (SNG) can be expected in the future. These results are based on plant design studies, economic assessments and basic development efforts in the field of coal gasification with nuclear heat, which in the FRG were carried out by Arbeitsgemeinschaft Nukleare Prozesswaerme (ANP)-members, HRB and KFA Juelich. Nuclear process plants are based on different gasification processes, resulting in different concepts of the nuclear heat system. In the case of hydro-gasification it is expected that steam reformers, arranged within the primary circuit of the reactor, will be heated directly by the primary helium. In the case of steam gasification, the high-temperature energy must be transferred to the gasification process via an intermediate circuit which is coupled to a gasifier outside the containment. In both cases the design of the nuclear reactor resembles an HTR for electricity generation. The main objectives of the development of nuclear process heat are to increase the helium outlet temperature of the reactor up to 950 0 C, to develop metallic alloys for high-temperature components such as heat exchangers, to design and construct a hot-gas duct, a steam reformer and a helium-helium heat exchanger and to develop the gasification processes. The nuclear safety regulations and the interface problems between the reactor, the process plant and the electricity generating plant have to be considered thoroughly. The Arbeitsgemeinschaft Nukleare Prozesswaerme and HRB started a development programme, in close collaboration with KFA Juelich, which will lead to the construction of a prototype plant for coal gasification with nuclear heat within 5 to 5 1/2 years.

    Reliable classification of fractures is important for treatment allocation and study comparisons. The overall accuracy of scoring applied to a general population of fractures is little known. This study aimed to investigate the accuracy and reliability of the comprehensive Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen/Orthopedic Trauma Association classification for adult long-bone fractures and identify factors associated with poor coding agreement. Adults (>16 years) with long-bone fractures coded in a Fracture and Dislocation Registry at the Stavanger University Hospital during the fiscal year 2008 were included. An unblinded reference code dataset was generated for the overall accuracy assessment by two experienced orthopedic trauma surgeons. Blinded analysis of intrarater reliability was performed by rescoring and of interrater reliability by recoding of a randomly selected fracture sample. Proportion of agreement (PA) and kappa (κ) statistics are presented. Uni- and multivariate logistic regression analyses of factors predicting accuracy were performed. During the study period, 949 fractures were included and coded by 26 surgeons. For the intrarater analysis, overall agreements were κ = 0.67 (95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.64-0.70) and PA 69%. For interrater assessment, κ = 0.67 (95% CI: 0.62-0.72) and PA 69%. The accuracy of surgeons' blinded recoding was κ = 0.68 (95% CI: 0.65- 0.71) and PA 68%. Fracture type, frequency of the fracture, and segment fractured significantly influenced accuracy whereas the coder's experience did not. Both the reliability and accuracy of the comprehensive Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen/Orthopedic Trauma Association classification for long-bone fractures ranged from substantial to excellent. Variations in coding accuracy seem to be related more to the fracture itself than the surgeon. Diagnostic study, level I.

    Guidelines were introduced in hospital and practice-based otorhinolaryngology in the 1990s, and have been undergoing further development ever since. There are currently 20 guidelines on file at the German Society of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology, Head and Neck Surgery. The Society has cooperated in a further 34 guidelines. The quality of the guidelines has been continually improved by concrete specifications put forward by the Association of the Scientific Medical Societies in Germany [Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Wissenschaftlichen Medizinischen Fachgesellschaften e.V.]. Since increasing digitalisation has made access to scientific publications quicker and more simple, relevant study results can be incorporated in guidelines more easily today than in the analogue world. S2e and S3 guidelines must be based on a formal literature search with subsequent evaluation of the evidence. The consensus procedure for S2k guidelines is also regulated. However, the implementation of guidelines in routine medical practice must still be considered inadequate, and there is still a considerable need for improvement in adherence to these guidelines. © Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart · New York.

  12. Simulation in Quality Management – An Approach to Improve Inspection Planning

    Full Text Available Production is a multi-step process involving many different articles produced in different jobs by various machining stations. Quality inspection has to be integrated in the production sequence in order to ensure the conformance of the products. The interactions between manufacturing processes and inspections are very complex since three aspects (quality, cost, and time should all be considered at the same time while determining the suitable inspection strategy. Therefore, a simulation approach was introduced to solve this problem.The simulator called QUINTE [the QUINTE simulator has been developed at the University of Dortmund in the course of two research projects funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Labour (BMWA: Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Arbeit, the Arbeitsgemeinschaft industrieller Forschungsvereinigungen (AiF, Cologne/Germany and the Forschungsgemeinschaft Qualität, Frankfurt a.M./Germany] was developed to simulate the machining as well as the inspection. It can be used to investigate and evaluate the inspection strategies in manufacturing processes. The investigation into the application of QUINTE simulator in industry was carried out at two pilot companies. The results show the validity of this simulator. An attempt to run QUINTE in a user-friendly environment, i.e., the commercial simulation software – Arena® is also described in this paper.NOTATION: QUINTE Qualität in der Teilefertigung  (Quality in  the manufacturing process  

  13. Thermal Plasmas: Influence of Current Modulation on Process Performance

    Schein, Jochen

    2015-09-01

    Due to the widespread industrial use of thermal plasmas in the field of joining, cutting and the application of coatings new challenges arise owed to the advent of new materials or the drive to reduce cost or improve quality. These challenges may be met by using technological innovations like innovative fast power supplies. In the presence of strong gas flows and a fixed cathodic attachment the anode attachment position is determined by an unstable balance between the drag force on the plasma column exerted by the gas and the Lorentz Force due to the system's magnetic field distribution, leading to a constant arc motion and arc voltage fluctuation. Thus by supplying a sufficiently high and steep current pulse a re-positioning might be initiated by a sudden change of the Lorentz Force thus an externally controlled movement of the arc would be possible. In wire arc spraying a pulsed current is imposed upon the DC supply of the wire arc system. It is observed that steep current increases tend to produce sudden current drops, indicating a jump of the arc. For a certain pulse frequency this pulsing leads to a controlled motion of the arc along the electrode surfaces. Coatings produced with this technology exhibited a lower porosity than DC sprayed coatings and a lower oxide content.

This guidance is based on an interdisciplinary consensus. These recommendations are a prerequisite for the quality management in the treatment of patients with bone metastases from prostate cancer using (223)Ra. They are aimed at guiding nuclear medicine specialists in selecting candidates to receive therapy and to deliver the treatment in a safe and effective manner. The document contains background information and definitions. It covers the rationale, indications and contraindications for therapy with (223)Ra. Essential topics are the requirements for institutions performing the therapy, which patient data have to be available prior to performance of therapy, and how treatment has to be carried out technically and organisationally. Moreover, essential elements of follow-up and aftercare are specified. As a matter of principle, the treatment inclusive aftercare has to be realised in close cooperation with the involved medical disciplines.

In all 80 patients were enrolled in the study, of which 40 were treated with short PFNA and the remaining with long PFNA. Comparative analyses of demographic data, peri-operative outcome and complications were carried out. Results: There was no significant difference noted in the two groups with regards to Arbeitsgemeinschaft fur Osteosynthesefragen (AO fracture classification, time from injury to surgery, blood transfusion post surgery and hospital stay. The surgical duration for a short PFNA procedure was significantly less (58 minutes when compared to that of a long PFNA (87 minutes. Similarly intra-operative blood loss was significantly higher in the long PFNA group as compared to the short PFNA. Conclusions: A relatively quicker surgical time of just under an hour , lesser blood loss and better learning curve with trainee surgeons make short PFNA a better implant choice in the treatment of pertrochanteric fractures.

    The scheduled update to the German S3 guidelines on fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) by the Association of the Scientific Medical Societies ("Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Wissenschaftlichen Medizinischen Fachgesellschaften", AWMF; registration number 041/004) was planned starting in March 2011. The development of the guidelines was coordinated by the German Interdisciplinary Association for Pain Therapy ("Deutsche Interdisziplinären Vereinigung für Schmerztherapie", DIVS), 9 scientific medical societies and 2 patient self-help organizations. Eight working groups with a total of 50 members were evenly balanced in terms of gender, medical field, potential conflicts of interest and hierarchical position in the medical and scientific fields. Literature searches were performed using the Medline, PsycInfo, Scopus and Cochrane Library databases (until December 2010). The grading of the strength of the evidence followed the scheme of the Oxford Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine. The formulation and grading of recommendations was accomplished using a multi-step, formal consensus process. The guidelines were reviewed by the boards of the participating scientific medical societies. The clinical diagnosis of FMS can be established by the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) 1990 classification criteria (with tender point examination), by the modified preliminary diagnostic ACR 2010 criteria or by the diagnostic criteria of the German interdisciplinary guideline (AWMF) on FMS.

    Full Text Available Despite major economic and organizational changes in the pharmaceutical industry, the Pharmaceutical Library Task Force (Arbeitskreis Pharma-Bibliotheken has been going strong in the Medical Library Working Party (Arbeitsgemeinschaft für medizinisches Bibliothekswesen – AGMB for the past 18 years. However, Task Force discussion topics have moved away from questions about spatial or staffing expansion or building up inventory, and toward themes such as outsourcing, training, technology scouting, and building up comprehensive copyright expertise. While actual physical stock is shrinking or has been eliminated entirely from many company libraries, the everyday working lives of company librarians are increasingly taken up with management of electronic media, in-house marketing and the associated user training, evaluation and use of new technologies, and clarification of complex copyright issues. Widespread know-how, in-depth knowledge of specialist areas (such as copyright, communication skills, networking, cost awareness, adaptability, willingness to learn new things, and demonstrating the value they add to the company are the factors that will secure the future of company librarians, whether with – or, in a pinch – without a physical library.

    Beside the classical anticancer treatment tumor patients try to find proactive alternative therapies to fight their disease. Lifestyle changes such as introducing a ketogenic diet is one of the most popular among them. The German Association of Urological Oncology (AUO, Arbeitsgemeinschaft Urologische Onkologie) presents a systematic review investigating the evidence of ketogenic diet in cancer patients. A systematic literature research was conducted in the databases Medline, Livivo, and the Cochrane Library. Only clinical studies of tumor patients receiving chemotherapy while on a ketogenic diet were included. The assessment of the results was performed according to the predefined primary endpoints overall survival and progression-free survival and secondary endpoints quality of life and reduction of adverse effects induced by cytostatics. Nine studies met the inclusion criteria: eight prospective and one retrospective study case series respectively cohort-studies, with a total of 107 patients. Currently there is no evidence of a therapeutic effect of a ketogenic diet in patients with malignant tumors regarding the clinical outcome or quality of life. Based on the current data, a ketogenic diet can not be recommended to cancer patients because prospective, randomized trials are missing.

    This guideline of the German Dermatology Society primarily focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of cutaneous manifestations of Lyme borreliosis. It has received consensus from 22 German medical societies and 2 German patient organisations. It is the first part of an AWMF (Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Wissenschaftlichen Medizinischen Fachgesellschaften e.V.) interdisciplinary guideline: “Lyme Borreliosis – Diagnosis and Treatment, development stage S3”. The guideline is directed at physicians in private practices and clinics who treat Lyme borreliosis. Objectives of this guideline are recommendations for confirming a clinical diagnosis, recommendations for a stage-related laboratory diagnosis (serological detection of IgM and IgG Borrelia antibodies using the 2-tiered ELISA/immunoblot process, sensible use of molecular diagnostic and culture procedures) and recommendations for the treatment of the localised, early-stage infection (erythema migrans, erythema chronicum migrans, and borrelial lymphocytoma), the disseminated early-stage infection (multiple erythemata migrantia, flu-like symptoms) and treatment of the late-stage infection (acrodermatitis chronica atrophicans with and without neurological manifestations). In addition, an information sheet for patients containing recommendations for the prevention of Lyme borreliosis is attached to the guideline. PMID:28943834

    Urinary incontinence can arise in a woman of any age. Its prevalence is between 10% and 40%. The main clinical problems in urogynecology are stress urinary incontinence (involuntary leakage of urine on exertion, sneezing, or coughing) and the overactive bladder syndrome (nycturia, pollakisuria, and urinary urgency with or without incontinence). Selective literature search, with special attention to large-scale studies and to the guidelines of the German Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Gynäkologie und Geburtshilfe, DGGG) and its Task Force on Urogynecology and Pelvic Floor Reconstruction (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Urogynäkologie und Beckenbodenrekonstruktion). There are many diagnostic and therapeutic options, whose use should be based on the degree of the patient's suffering and on her motivation to be treated. Anticholinergic drugs are of established value in the treatment of overactive bladder. They are used in combination with possible lifestyle changes and bladder training. In some circum-stances, botulinum toxin injections can be considered as well. Stress incontinence should be treated conservatively (with pelvic floor training) before any surgical treatment is provided. The new tension-free vaginal tapes are just as effective as classic treatments, such as colposuspension, while being less invasive and enabling a more rapid recovery. All women with urinary incontinence should undergo appropriate, specialized diagnostic evaluation and well-founded counseling in order to benefit from individualized treatment.

The grading of the strength of the evidence followed the scheme of the Oxford Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine. Current data do not identify distinct etiologic or pathophysiological factors mediating development of FMS. The development of FMS is associated with inflammatory rheumatic diseases (EL2b), with gene polymorphisms of the 5-hydroxytryptamine (HT)(2) receptor (EL3a), lifestyle factors (smoking, obesity, lack of physical activity; EL2b), physical and sexual abuse in childhood and adulthood (EL3a). FMS is most likely the result of various pathogenetic factors and pathophysiological mechanisms. The English full-text version of this article is available at SpringerLink (under "Supplemental").

    Open reposition and internal fixation (ORIF) is the reference standard for unstable Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen (AO)-type 44-B ankle fractures. Age, comorbidity, delayed-staged surgery, and length-of-stay (LOS) are all factors that presumably correlate positively with health care costs. We performed an exploratory analysis of the health care costs associated with the treatment of this type of fracture and hypothesized that these costs will be significantly greater for the elderly. A total of 217 patients with an acute AO type 44-B ankle fracture were included. We studied 14 variables, and 5 main cost categories were defined. The health care costs associated with the treatment of ankle fractures in the present study constituted more than one half (53%) of the hospitalization costs, which, in turn, were strongly related to the LOS. Delayed-staged surgery and age were the most important clinical variables driving the total health care costs and LOS (p Foot and Ankle Surgeons. Published by Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

    1979-03-01

    Between October 1974 and October 1978 23 children with acute myelocytic leucemia (AML) received intensive therapy in the Univ.-Kinderklinik Münster: 4 children were treated according to the ALGB-protocol consisting of 5-7 day courses of ARA-C-infusion and 3 DNR-injections. 19 patients received the West-Berlin-protocol: The first 7 the original ALL protocol, 11 the modified form of AML, which will be presented here as AML-therapy-study BFM 78. 4 of the 23 patients died with early acute cerebral bleeding. 2 patients were nonresponders. 17 children went into remission. One girl died in remission of septicemic aspergillosis. 4 children had a relapse. In November 1978 there were still 12 patients in continuous complete remission, 3 of them already without therapy. 13 of the 19 patients, who were treated with the West-Berlin-protocol went into remission. 1 had a relapse. At present there are 11 patients in continuous complete remission. The above results and those found in the literature could signify that the long term prognosis of children with AML will be improved. To coordinate efforts toward this goal a cooperative AML-therapy-study in the "Deutsche Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Leukämieforschung" (BFM-group) using the here presented therapy protocol was formed in November 1978.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Fractures of the proximal radius need to be classified in an appropriate and reproducible manner. The aim of this study was to assess the reliability of the three most widely used classification systems. Methods Elbow radiographs images of patients with proximal radius fractures were classified according to Mason, Morrey, and Arbeitsgemeinschaft für osteosynthesefragen/Association for the Study of Internal Fixation (AO/ASIF classifications by four observers with different experience with this subject to assess their intra- and inter-observer agreement. Each observer analyzed the images on three different occasions on a computer with numerical sequence randomly altered. Results We found that intra-observer agreement of Mason and Morrey classifications were satisfactory (κ = 0.582 and 0.554, respectively, while the AO/ASIF classification had poor intra-observer agreement (κ = 0.483. Inter-observer agreement was higher in the Mason (κ = 0.429-0.560 and Morrey (κ = 0.319-0.487 classifications than in the AO/ASIF classification (κ = 0.250-0.478, which showed poor reliability. Conclusion Inter- and intra-observer agreement of the Mason and Morey classifications showed overall satisfactory reliability when compared to the AO/ASIF system. The Mason classification is the most reliable system.

    The aim of this study is to investigate the clinical outcomes of various fixation methods for proximal phalangeal fractures with Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen (AO) mini titanium plate by dorsolateral approach or post-middle approach. Clinical results of 62 fingers of 53 patients with proximal phalangeal fracture were evaluated. For dorsolateral approach, the lateral bundle of the extensor tendon was drawn away to expose the fracture part of the bone. After reduction, the plate was located at the dorsolateral side of the bone. For post-middle approach, the extensor tendon was split to expose the fracture part of the bone. After reduction, the plate was fixed to the proximal phalangeal side of the bone, and the extensor tendon was repaired with 3-0 nonabsorbable silk sutures. We found low overall complication rates in both groups. The mean total active motion (TAM) for the dorsolateral group and post-middle group was 234.60° ± 22.63° and 221.08° ± 25.69°, respectively. There was a statistical significance between the two groups (P = 0.037 AO mini titanium plate, movement in dorsolateral approach group was significantly higher than in post-middle approach group. Dorsolateral approach is an acceptable technique of incision for proximal phalangeal fractures.

Fifty-five consecutive patients with thoracolumbar burst fractures undergoing instrumentation between 2010 and 2015 were analyzed retrospectively. TLICS and AO systems were compared based on patients" American Spinal Injury Association (ASIA) scores and they were analyzed for their safety and reliability. A total of 55 patients were studied. Neurological deficits were detected in 18 patients and the remaining 37 patients had normal neurological functions. All the patients with neurological deficits received > 4 points according to TLICS. There were 14 patients with incomplete spinal cord injury and all of them received > 4 points according to TLICS (p AO system. None of the 37 patients without neurological deficit received AO points, to whom AO recommends conservative treatment despite the fact that they had unstable burst fractures (p AO particularly for guiding the surgical management of unstable thoracolumbar burst fractures without neurological deficit. However, this conclusion needs to be verified with further multicenter prospective studies.

    Distal radius fractures are very common upper limb injuries irrespective of the patient's age. The aim of our study is to evaluate the reliability of the three systems that are often used for their classification (AO - Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen/Association for the Study of Internal Fixation, Fernandez and Universal) and to assess the need for computed tomography (CT) scan to improve inter- and intra-observer agreement. Five orthopaedic surgeons and two hand surgeons classified radiographs and CT scans of 26 patients using the Fernandez, AO and Universal systems. All data were recorded using MS Excel and Kappa statistics were performed to determine inter- and intra-observer agreement and to evaluate the role of CT scan. Fair-to-moderate inter-observer agreement was noted with the use of X-rays for all classification systems. Intra-observer reproducibility did not improve with the addition of CT scans, especially for the senior hand surgeons. The agreement rates observed in the present study show that currently there is no classification system that is fully reproducible. Adequate experience is required for the assessment and treatment of these injuries. CT scan should be requested only by experienced hand surgeons in order to help guide treatment, as it does not significantly improve inter- and intra-observer agreement for all classification systems.

    Bottke, D.; Wiegel, T.; Hoecht, S.; Hinkelbein, W.; Kreusel, K.M.

    2005-01-01

    Background and purpose: there is no evidence in the literature about the incidence of synchronous brain metastases in patients with choroidal metastases. This is of major importance, because the radiation fields of choroidal metastases and, later on, brain metastases, if treated consecutively, are partly overlapping, thus potentially increasing the rate of late side effects such as brain necrosis. The goal of this study was to determine the frequency of synchronous brain metastases. Patients and methods: 50 patients with choroidal metastases were enrolled into a study of the ''Arbeitsgemeinschaft Radiologische Onkologie'' of the German Cancer Society (ARO 95-08) with standardized 40 Gy radiotherapy, 2 Gy single dose. All patients were staged before treatment with a computed tomography of the brain (CCT). No patient showed clinical signs of brain metastases. Results: 13 out of 50 patients (26%) had brain metastases in the CCT leading to radiotherapy of the brain and choroidal metastases in one volume. Conclusion: a CCT is indicated at the diagnosis of choroidal metastases for screening of synchronous brain metastases. The incidence is about 25%, and the diagnosis of brain metastases results in a different target volume: the whole brain including the posterior parts of the eyes compared to the posterior parts of the eyes alone. Therefore, the risk of late side effects could be reduced compared with an additional later radiotherapy of the whole brain with partly overlapping fields. (orig.)

  12. Determinants of nutritional behaviour: a multitude of levers for successful intervention?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Gedrich, Kurt

    2003-12-01

    Nutritional behaviour is framed by biological, anthropological, economic, psychological, socio-cultural, and home economics related determinants and it is shaped by the individual situation. From a public health point of view, the outcome is often unsatisfactory, because it is associated with preventable cases of various diseases. This situation evoked the founding of the German Association for Nutritional Behaviour (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Ernährungsverhalten, AGEV) which celebrated its 25th anniversary within the scope of the 10th Food Choice Conference in the summer of 2002 with a plenary session on 'Sensible policies for nutrition and life-style intervention'. One might assume that the many determinants of nutritional behaviour provide a whole set of means to intervene into people's food choices. But closer deliberations make clear that there are two important aspects that tend to hinder dietary changes: on the one hand, nutritional behaviour is characterized by many conflicts of its related determinants. In order to cope with them, people develop individual guiding strategies for food choice situations which are quite stable as soon as they proved their suitability. On the other hand, any dietary modification leads to certain gains (like increased health), but losses, as well (like decreased palatability). Thus, a sustainable change can only be expected, if its gains are evaluated higher than its losses. These aspects need to be carefully considered when designing nutrition and life-style related intervention concepts.

    Full Text Available The journal impact factor (IF, which is published annually by the Institute for Scientific Information® (USA, is meanwhile in widespread use as a scientometric parameter for the evaluation of research and researchers in Germany and other European countries. The present article subjects the IF to critical analysis. It first deals with processes of production, transfer, and use of medical knowledge, because the IF intervenes in these processes on account of its reflexivity. Secondary effects of the IF resulting from its reflexivity are discussed with the focus on the level of the author, the journal and the medical discipline as well as on social knowledge processes in society. In addition, the extent to which the IF is appropriate for evaluating the quality of a specific article, of a journal or of individual and collective research achievements is discussed. The present article calls for a research evaluation in accordance with the recommendations of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Council, DFG and of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Wissenschaftlichen Medizini-schen Fachgesellschaften (Association of the Scientific Medical Societies, AWMF; and b for more intensive occupation with and organization of medical knowledge processes.El factor de impacto de las revistas (journal impact factor - IF, que publica anualmente el Institute for Scientific Information® (EE.UU., se emplea generalizadamente como parámetro cienciométrico para evaluar las investigaciones y a los investigadores en Alemania y otros países europeos.

    This manuscript reports the consensus recommendations on screening and diagnosis of Lynch syndrome (LS) in patients with endometrial or ovarian cancer as well as on possible preventive measures in effectively LS-diagnosed women. The recommendations are issued by the Austrian Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Gynäkologische Onkologie (AGO) of the Österreichischen Gesellschaft für Gynäkologie und Geburtshilfe (OEGGG) after consultation of the most recent and relevant literature and following deliberation by the Genetic Task-Force convoked May, 2015 by the AGO Council. The Austrian AGO recommends immunohistochemical tissue screening for type-I and type-II endometrial cancers in all patients below the age of 70 years, and for all endometrioid and clear-cell ovarian cancers independently of the patient's age. If needed immunohistochemistry should be complemented by tissue MLH1 promotor hypermethylation testing and/or microsatellite instability (MSI) analysis. The diagnosis LS requires confirmation through identification of a germline mutation by a molecular genetic examination in the mismatch repair genes using the patient's blood. This should be performed without preceding tissue screening when in LS-associated cancer patients the family history fulfills the Amsterdam II or the revised Bethesda criteria. In LS-diagnosed women, the age for prophylactic surgery should be set flexibly based on an informed consent. Regarding the monitoring of these women, chemo-preventive measures as well as screening procedures either to avoid or to early detect LS-related tumors are discussed with a special light on their specific limitations.

    The growing popularity and acceptance of integrative medicine is evident both among patients and among the oncologists treating them. As little data are available regarding health-care professionals' knowledge, attitudes, and practices relating to the topic, a nationwide online survey was designed. Over a period of 11 weeks (from July 15 to September 30, 2014) a self-administered, 17-item online survey was sent to all 676 members of the Research Group on Gynecological Oncology (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Gynäkologische Onkologie) in the German Cancer Society. The questionnaire items addressed the use of integrative therapy methods, fields of indications for them, advice services provided, level of specific qualifications, and other topics. Of the 104 respondents (15.4%) using integrative medicine, 93% reported that integrative therapy was offered to breast cancer patients. The second most frequent type of tumor in connection with which integrative therapy methods were recommended was ovarian cancer, at 80% of the participants using integrative medicine. Exercise, nutritional therapy, dietary supplements, herbal medicines, and acupuncture were the methods the patients were most commonly advised to use. There is considerable interest in integrative medicine among gynecological oncologists, but integrative therapy approaches are at present poorly implemented in routine clinical work. Furthermore there is a lack of specific training. Whether future efforts should focus on extending counseling services on integrative medicine approaches in gynecologic oncology or not, have to be discussed. Evidence-based training on integrative medicine should be implemented in order to safely guide patients in their wish to do something by themselves.

  8. [Classification of periprosthetic shoulder fractures].

    2016-04-01

    The key targets in the treatment of periprosthetic humeral fractures (PHF) are the preservation of bone, successful bony consolidation and provision of a stable anchoring of the prosthesis with the major goal of restoring the shoulder-arm function. A substantial problem of periprosthetic shoulder fractures is the fact that treatment is determined not only by the fracture itself but also by the implanted prosthesis and its function. Consequently, the exact preoperative shoulder function and, in the case of an implanted anatomical prosthesis, the status and function of the rotator cuff need to be assessed in order to clarify the possibility of a secondarily occurring malfunction. Of equal importance in this context is the type of implanted prosthesis. The existing classification systems of Wright and Cofield, Campbell et al., Groh et al. and Worland et al. have several drawbacks from a shoulder surgeon's point of view, such as a missing reference to the great variability of the available prostheses and the lack of an evaluation of rotator cuff function. The presented 6‑stage classification for the evaluation of periprosthetic fractures of the shoulder can be considered just as simple or complex to understand as the classification of the working group for osteosynthesis problems (AO, Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen), depending on the viewpoint. From our point of view the classification presented here encompasses the essential points of the existing classification systems and also covers the otherwise missing points, which should be considered in the assessment of such periprosthetic fractures. The classification presented here should provide helpful assistance in the daily routine to find the most convenient form of therapy.

    Adolescents and young adults (AYAs) with hemato-oncological problems constitute a heterogenous group with characteristic particularities, specific needs, and age-related clinical and unique psychosocial features. Strong collaboration between pediatric and adult hemato-oncology settings is essential to address their needs appropriately. This is not only true for patients who first become ill during adolescence or young adulthood, but equally so for people who contract hemato-oncological diseases congenitally or as younger children and who are now becoming old enough to leave the pediatric setting and have to transit into "adult" medical care. Efforts to create environments that meet the specific needs of the AYA population affected by hemato-oncological diseases have been initiated in many countries. Due to international variations between societies in general and healthcare infrastructures in particular, the challenges posed to creating such environments vary considerably from country to country. Aiming at addressing these on a national basis for Germany, a dedicated Working Group on Adolescents, Young Adults, and Transition (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Adoleszenten, junge Erwachsene, Transition, AjET) was established. This meeting report depicts the content and discussions of the first interdisciplinary conference on treatment, transition, and long-term follow-up in AYAs with cancer or chronic/inborn hematological diseases. The AjET group of the German Society for Pediatric Oncology and Hematology (GPOH) intends to increase the national awareness for AYAs; strengthen the collaboration of pediatric and adult care givers; and initiate, promote, and coordinate collaborative activities in the fields of basic and translational research, clinical care, and long-term follow-up aimed at improving the current situation.

    The aim of this study was to compare the effects and indications of minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) and limited open reduction (LOR) for managing distal tibial shaft fractures. A total of 79 cases of distal tibial shaft fractures were treated surgically in our trauma center. The 79 fracture cases were classified into type A, B, and C (C1) according to the Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen (AO) classification, with 28, 32, and 19 cases, respectively. Among the 79 fracture cases, 52 were closed fractures and 27 were open fractures (GUSTILO, I-II). After adequate preparation, 48 cases were treated with LOR and 31 cases were treated with MIPO. All cases were followed up for 12 to 18 months, with an average of 16.4 months. During the follow-up period, 76 fracture cases were healed in the first stage, whereas the 3 cases that developed non-union were treated by changing the fixation device and autografting. For types A, B, and some of C simple fractures (C1), LOR accelerated the fracture healing and lowered the non-union rate. One case suffered from regional soft tissue infection, which was controlled by wound dressing and intravenous antibiotics. Another case that developed local skin necrosis underwent local flap transplant. LOR promoted bone healing and lowered the non-union rate of several simple-distal tibial shaft fractures. Thereafter, the incidence of soft tissue complication was not significantly increased. However, for complex and comminuted fractures, MIPO was the preferred method for correcting bone alignment and protecting soft tissue, leading to functional recovery.

    From 2010 until 2015 two interdisciplinary evidence-based guidelines were developed to summarize the current knowledge regarding screening, diagnostics and treatment of alcohol and tobacco-related disorders. Both guidelines were prepared under the auspices of the German Society for Psychiatry, Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Psychiatrie, Psychotherapie, Psychosomatik und Nervenheilkunde, DGPPN) and the German Society for Addiction Research and Therapy (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Suchtforschung und -therapie, DG-Sucht). To meet the methodological criteria for the highest quality guidelines (S3 criteria) as defined by the Association of the Scientific Medical Societies in Germany (Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Wissenschaftlichen Medizinischen Fachgesellschaften, AWMF) the following criteria were realized: (1) a systematic search, selection and appraisal of the international literature, (2) a structured process to reach consensus and (3) inclusion of all relevant representatives of future guideline users. More than 60 clinical experts and researchers analyzed the scientific literature. In total 41 international and national guidelines (23 for alcohol and 18 for tobacco) were used. Moreover, 83 systematic Cochrane reviews (alcohol 28, tobacco 55) and 5863 articles (alcohol 2213, tobacco 3650) were analyzed. A total of 7 expert groups formulated 174 recommendations for the screening, diagnosis and treatment of alcohol-related disorders. Six expert groups created 81 recommendations for the screening, diagnosis and treatment of tobacco-related disorders. Approximately 50 scientific associations, professional organizations, patient and family initiatives, as well as representatives of the healthcare system formed a consensus group. In seven 1 and 2-day conferences, all clinical recommendations were discussed and approved by this group. Both guidelines will be revised on a regular basis to guarantee that the clinical recommendations are kept up to

    Trauma registries are essential for injury surveillance and recognition of the burden of musculoskeletal injury in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). The purpose of this study was to pilot a femur fracture registry at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) to assess data quality and determine the barriers to research partnering in LMICs. All patients admitted to KATH with a fracture of the femur, or Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen (AO) class 31, 32, 33, were entered into a locally designed, electronic femur fracture database. Patients' characteristics and data quality were assessed by using descriptive statistics. Orthopedic trauma research barriers and opportunities were identified from key informants at the research site and supporting site. Ninety-six femur fracture patients were enrolled into the registry over a 5-week period. The majority of patients resided in the Ashanti region surrounding the hospital (78 %). Most participants were involved in a road traffic crash (58 %) and physiologically stable with a Cape Triage Score of yellow upon admission (84 %). AO class 32 femur fractures represented the majority of femur fractures (78 %). Median times from injury to admission, admission to surgery, and surgery to discharge were 0, 5, and 10 days, respectively. Data quality analysis showed that data collected at admission had higher rates of completion in the database relative to data collected at various follow-up time points. Data and data quality analyses highlighted characteristics of femur fracture patients presenting to KATH as well as the technological, administrative support, and hospital systems-based challenges of longitudinal data collection in LMICs.

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND External Fixation (EF and Open Reduction and Internal Fixation (ORIF have been the traditional surgical modalities for unstable distal radius fractures. The Locking Compression Plates (LCP acting as “internal external fixators” are particularly valuable in difficult situations of fractures. We undertook a study to evaluate the outcome of unstable distal radius fractures treated with ORIF with LCP versus those treated by ligamentotaxis with external fixators. MATERIALS AND METHODS A comparative study was carried out in a tertiary care centre with 30 cases of unstable distal radius fractures (15 cases in each group. In one group, open reduction and internal fixation with distal radius volar locking compression plate was carried out and in the other group ligamentotaxis with external fixator was done. The patients were treated and followed up over a period of one and a half year between June 2011 to November 2012. The fractures were classified according to AO classification (Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen: German for “Association for the Study of Internal Fixation” or AO. The functional results were evaluated at the end of 6 months according to Demerit point system of Gartland and Werley modified by Sarmiento (1975 and the anatomical results as per Lindstrom criteria (1959 modified by Sarmiento (1980. RESULTS Overall 86.66% (13 cases had good-to-excellent anatomical results in external fixator group as compared to 93.33% (14 cases in LCP group. The functional outcome was excellent in 80% (12 and good in 13.33% (2 cases in external fixator group as compared to 66.66% (10 excellent and 26.66% (4 good in LCP group. CONCLUSION Both open reduction and internal fixation with locking compression plate and ligamentotaxis with external fixators are good treatment modalities for unstable distal radius fractures. However, the choice should be guided by the fracture configuration, surgeons’ experience and patient’s profile.

    The trochanteric fixation nail (TFN) can be used to treat stable and unstable fractures of intertrochanteric hip fractures. We study the common lateral migration that occurs with telescoping of intertrochanteric hip fractures treated with TFN and identify the predictors and relationships to clinical outcomes. Patient demographic information, fracture type (Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen (AO)/Orthopaedic Trauma Association (OTA) classification), radiographic data, and clinical data were collected. Lateral migration with telescoping was measured. Statistical analyses were performed to determine which variables predicted lateral migration with telescoping. Patient outcome scores were recorded using the Modified Harris Hip Score (MHHS), Hip Outcome Score-Activity of Daily Living (HOS-ADL), and Visual Analog Scale for pain. Two hundred and twenty-three patients (67 males, 156 females) fitted the radiographic and follow-up (average 24.6 months) criteria. The average age was 77.2 years. The average lateral migration with telescoping was 4.8 mm. Twenty-one patients (9.4%) had excessive lateral migration with telescoping ( = 10 mm). The quality of calcar reduction (P = 0.01) and unstable fracture patterns (P = 0.006) were significant predictive factors of lateral migration with telescoping. The mean outcome scores (MHHS and HOS-ADL) were 80.1 points and 78.7 points, respectively. All subjects had no significant relationship to lateral migration with telescoping (P > 0.05). Of all the patients who developed lateral migration with telescoping, only one required removal of the blade for hip pain and all patients went on to uneventful union at an average time of 4.5 months. Lateral migration with telescoping is a common mechanical complication of intertrochanteric hip fracture treated with the TFN procedure. It was predicted by the quality of calcar reduction and fracture type. However, this did not affect stable fixation and fracture healing, so rarely leads to

    Previous studies have described the mechanism of ankle fractures, their seasonal variation, and fracture patterns but never in conjunction. In addition, the cohorts previously studied were either not from trauma centers or were often dominated by low-energy mechanisms. The present study aimed to describe the epidemiology of ankle fractures presenting to an urban level 1 trauma center. The records from an urban level 1 trauma center located in the Midwestern United States were retrospectively reviewed, and the injury mechanism and energy, time of injury, day of week, month, and patient characteristics (age, gender, comorbidities, smoking status) were collected. The fractures were classified using the AO (Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen), Lauge-Hansen, and Danis-Weber systems. Of these systems, the Lauge-Hansen classification system resulted in the greatest number of "unclassifiable" cases. Most ankle fractures were due to high-energy mechanisms, with motor vehicle collisions the most common high-energy mechanism. The review found that most ankle fractures were malleolar fractures, regardless of the mechanism of injury. The ankle fracture patients had greater rates of obesity, diabetes, and smoking than present in the region where the hospital is located. The fractures were most likely to occur in the afternoon, with more fractures presenting on the weekend than earlier in the week and more fractures in the fall and winter than in the spring and summer. The temporal variation of these fractures should be considered for health services planning, in particular, in regard to resident physician staffing at urban level 1 trauma centers.

    Computer-assisted surgery (CAS) can improve the accuracy of screw placement and decrease radiation exposure, yet this is not widely accepted among spine surgeons. The current viewpoint of spine surgeons on navigation in their everyday practice is an important issue that has not been studied. A survey-based study assessed opinions on CAS to describe the current global attitudes of surgeons on the use of navigation in spine surgery. A 12-item questionnaire focusing on the number and type of surgical cases, the type of equipment available, and general opinions toward CAS was distributed to 3348 AOSpine surgeons (a specialty group within the AO [Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen] Foundation). Latent class analysis was used to investigate the existence of specific groups based on the respondent opinion profiles. A response rate of 20% was recorded. Despite a widespread distribution of navigation systems in North America and Europe, only 11% of surgeons use it routinely. High-volume procedure surgeons, neurological surgeons, and surgeons with a busy minimal invasive surgery practice are more likely to use CAS. "Routine users" consider the accuracy, potential of facilitating complex surgery, and reduction in radiation exposure as the main advantages. The lack of equipment, inadequate training, and high costs are the main reasons that "nonusers" do not use CAS. Spine surgeons acknowledge the value of CAS, yet current systems do not meet their expectations in terms of ease of use and integration into the surgical work flow. To increase its use, CAS has to become more cost efficient and scientific data are needed to clarify its potential benefits. Copyright © 2013 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

  17. Clavicular hook plate may induce subacromial shoulder impingement and rotator cuff lesion - dynamic sonographic evaluation

    Science.gov (United States)

    2014-01-01

    Background Clavicular hook plates are effective fixation devices for distal clavicle fractures and severe acromioclavicular joint dislocations. However, increasing number of studies has revealed that subacromial portion of the hook may induce acromial bony erosion, shoulder impingement, or even rotator cuff damage. By sonographic evaluation, we thus intended to determine whether the presence of hook plate may induce subacromial shoulder impingement and its relationship relative to surrounding subacromial structures. Methods We prospectively followed 40 patients with either distal clavicle fracture or acromioclavicular joint dislocation that had surgery using the Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen (AO) clavicular hook plate. All patients were evaluated by monthly clinical and radiographic examinations. Static and dynamic musculoskeletal sonography examinations were performed at final follow-up before implant removal. Clinical results for pain, shoulder function, and range of motion were evaluated using Constant-Murley and Disability of Arm, Shoulder, and Hand (DASH) scores. Results Clinically, 15 out of 40 patients (37.5%) presented with subacromial impingement syndrome and their functional scores were poorer than the non-impinged patients. Among them, six patients were noted to have rotator cuff lesion. Acromial erosion caused by hook pressure developed in 20 patients (50%). Conclusions We demonstrated by musculoskeletal sonography that clavicular hook plate caused subacromial shoulder impingement and rotator cuff lesion. The data also suggest an association between hardware-induced impingement and poorer functional scores. To our knowledge, the only solution is removal of the implant after bony consolidation/ligamentous healing has taken place. Thus, we advocate the removal of the implant as soon as bony union and/or ligamentous healing is achieved. PMID:24502688

    Full Text Available AIM:To evaluate the accuracy and practicability of three-dimensionally preformed Arbeitsgemeinschaft Osteosynthese AO titanium mesh plates for orbital fractures.METHODS:Forty-seven patients with isolated blow-out orbital fractures were included in this study. Fracture locations were as follows: floor/medial wall(n=26, 55%, medial wall(n=12, 26%, and floor(n=9, 19%. The floor fractures were exposed by a standard transconjunctival approach, whereas a combined transcaruncular transconjunctival approach was used in patients with medial wall fractures with temporary dissection of inferior oblique muscle. A three-dimensionally preformed AO titanium mesh plate was selected according to the size of the defect previously measured on the preoperative computed tomographic scan examination and fixed at the inferior orbital rim with 2 screws. The accuracy of plate positioning of the reconstructed orbit was assessed on the postoperative computed tomography(CTscan. The practicability of clinical use of AO three-dimensionally preformed titanium mesh plates was assessed on the preoperative and postoperative clinical data.RESULTS: Postoperative orbital CT scan showed an anatomic three-dimensional placement of the orbital mesh plates in all of the patients. All patients had a successful treatment outcome without clinical complications. 40 patients(87%had a successful enophthalmos correction. 25 patients(86%had a successful recovery from diplopia.CONCLUSION: Three-dimensionally preformed AO titanium mesh plates for orbital fracture reconstruction results in an accurate anatomic restoration of the bony orbital contour with a high rate of success to correctenophthalmos and diplopia.

    A lateral approach with open reduction and internal fixation with a plate is a very effective technique for the majority of distal fibular fractures. However, this open approach for ankle fixation may be complicated by wound dehiscence and infection, especially in high-risk patients. An alternative to plating is an intramedullary implant, which allows maintenance of length, alignment, and rotation and which allows for decreased soft tissue dissection. While there has been clinical data suggesting favorable short-term outcomes with these implants, there is no current biomechanical literature investigating this technology in this particular fracture pattern. This study sought to biomechanically compare an emerging technology with an established method of fixation for distal fibular fractures that traditionally require an extensive exposure. Ten matched cadaveric pairs from the proximal tibia to the foot were prepared to simulate an Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen/Orthopaedic Trauma Association (AO/OTA) 44C2 ankle fracture and randomized to fixation with a distal fibular locking plate or intramedullary fibular rod. A constant 700-N axial load was applied, and all specimens underwent testing for external rotation stiffness, external rotation cyclic loading, and torque to failure. The syndesmotic diastasis, stiffness, torque to failure, angle at failure, and mode of failure were obtained from each specimen. There was no significant difference in syndesmotic diastasis during cyclic loading or at maximal external rotation between the rod and plate groups. Post-cycle external rotation stiffness across the syndesmosis was significantly higher for the locking plate than the fibular rod. There was no significant difference between the rod and plate in torque at failure or external rotation angle. The majority of specimens had failure at the syndesmotic screw. In the present cadaveric study of an AO/OTA 44C2 ankle fracture, a modern fibular rod demonstrated less

    To examine the association between tibial pilon and calcaneal fracture classification and tendon entrapment or dislocation. After institutional review board approval, we retrospectively reviewed consecutive CT scans with calcaneal or pilon fractures from 5 years at a level 1 trauma center. We categorized calcaneal fractures according to the Sanders classification, and pilon fractures according to the Ruedi and Allgower and the Arbeitsgemeinschaft fuer Osteosynthesefragen-Orthopaedic Trauma Association (AO-OTA) classifications. Ankle tendons were assessed for dislocation or entrapment. Fisher's exact test was used for statistical analysis with significance at p < 0.05. A total of 312 fractures (91 pilon only, 193 calcaneal only, and 14 ankles with ipsilateral pilon and calcaneal fractures) were identified in 273 patients. Twenty-two pilon, 42 calcaneal, and nine combination fractures were associated with 99 occurrences of tendon entrapment or superior peroneal retinacular injury. Such findings were associated with multiple fractures (p = 0.002). Multifragmentary pilon fractures were associated with posterior tibial and flexor digitorum longus tendon entrapment (p < 0.0001 and p = 0.0003 for Ruedi/Allgower and AO-OTA, respectively), and multifragmentary Sanders type 3 or 4 calcaneal fractures were associated with superior peroneal retinacular injury (p = 0.0473) compared to simple fracture patterns. Thirty-nine percent of tendon entrapments or retinacular injuries were prospectively identified, 85 % by musculoskeletal radiologists (p < 0.0001). Approximately 25 % of calcaneal and pilon fractures were retrospectively identified to contain posteromedial tendon entrapment or superior peroneal retinacular injury. Radiologists should meticulously search for such injuries, particularly when analyzing multifragmentary and multiple fractures. (orig.)

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the correlation between sacral fractures and neurological deficits as complications. From November 2002 to February 2005, 12 patients (15 fractures) were found to have sacral fractures without other spinal injuries or brain injuries and were evaluated by plain CT scans immediately after trauma. This group included 6 males and 6 females, whose age ranged from 17 to 67 years with mean of 39.9±17.4. All patients were classified according to AO (Arbeitsgemeinschaft fuer Osteosynthesefragen) classification (pelvic ring fracture) and Denis's classification. Displacements of sacral fractures were evaluated by plain CT scans for all patients. We defined displacements using the key slice in CT scans that included the first foramen in the sacrum. Five cases, including 2 with bi-lateral sacral fractures, were complicated with neurological deficits. There was one case with a neurological deficit of 7 Type B fractures (14%) and 4 cases with neurological deficits of 5 Type C fractures (80%) in the AO classification. There were 6 fractures with neurological deficits of 12 Zone II fractures (50%) and one fracture with neurological deficits of one Zone III fractures (100%) in Denis's classification. There was a significant correlation between the extent in the displacement of the sacral fractures and neurological deficits. For more than 3 mm displacements in the medial or lateral or anterior directions, neurological deficits increased significantly. In emergency medicine, it is difficult to evaluate the neurological findings of patients with impaired consciousness. Our evaluation using CT scan is valuable as a predictor of neurological deficits and for an optimal reduction in sacral fractures in patients with in impaired consciousness. (author)

    Intra- and interrater reliability study for radiological variables of the International Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Spinal Column Injury Basic Data Set. To test reliability of the radiological variables in the International SCI Spinal Column Injury Basic Data Set and compare it with the Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen (AO) classification. The database of Eastern Denmark Regional SCI Referral Center, Copenhagen, Denmark. Ratings of the International SCI Spinal Column Injury Basic Data Set radiological variables and AO classification were obtained by two international observers for all the surgically treated spine trauma patients between 1st October 2010 and 31st December 2012 at the Spine Unit, Rigshospitalet, Denmark. Statistical analyses for intra- and interrater crude agreement and Cohen's unweighted kappa (κ) coefficients were performed. For 283 spine injuries, the intra- and interrater reliability for the individual radiological variables of the International SCI Spinal Column Injury Basic Data Set was at least substantial (κ=0.67-0.97 for interrater, κ=0.79-0.89 for the intrarater agreement). For the AO classification, intrarater reliability was moderate-to-substantial (κ=0.57-0.75), whereas interrater reliability was substantial (κ=0.67-0.69). The crude intra- and interrater agreement for a combined radiographic SCI Spinal Column Injury Basic Data Set variable showed no significant difference compared with the AO classification (P=0.067-0.895). The reliability of International SCI Spinal Column Injury Basic Data Set radiological variables is comparable to the AO classification system. We encourage its use for spinal column injury description, thus facilitating data collection and comparison between centres and countries.

    In our prospective nationwide surveillance study of traumatic optic neuropathy (TON) in the United Kingdom, the prevalence of orbital fractures was found to be 39% (47/121). The prevalence of skull fractures was 7.4% (9/121). This study aims to identify the association of craniofacial-orbital fractures with the severity of visual loss. TON patients who sustained orbital fractures were identified prospectively by population-based active surveillance through the British Ophthalmic Surveillance Unit over a 2-year period. Available CT scans were classified by a head and neck radiologist according to the Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen/Association for the Study of Internal Fixation (AO/ASIF) scheme: the face was divided into 4 units; fractures in each unit were graded according to displacement (A-C) and severity (1.1-3.3). Correlation between severity of craniofacial orbital fractures and visual acuity as well as number of fractured units and visual acuity were evaluated. Twelve of the 25 patients (48%) with imaging available had adequate high resolution craniofacial CT imaging for review and classification using the AO/ASIF system (i.e. 48 classifiable units). Three of 48 (6%) units were undisplaced (grade A), 18 of 48 (29%) units were minimally displaced (grade B), and 4 of 48 (8%) units had largely displaced (grade C) fractures. Twenty-three units (47.9%) had no fractures; 5 patients had radiological evidence of optic canal fractures. Poor visual acuities positively correlated with severity of fractures graded using the AO/ASIF classification (Spearman's rho = 0.95, p = 0.05) and number of fractured units (Spearman's rho = 1.0, p AO/ASIF classification system provides a uniform method in the assessment of orbital fractures which correlates with visual outcome in TON.

    The scheduled update to the German S3 guidelines on fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) by the Association of the Scientific Medical Societies ("Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Wissenschaftlichen Medizinischen Fachgesellschaften", AWMF; registration number 041/004) was planned starting in March 2011. The development of the guidelines was coordinated by the German Interdisciplinary Association for Pain Therapy ("Deutsche Interdisziplinären Vereinigung für Schmerztherapie", DIVS), 9 scientific medical societies and 2 patient self-help organizations. Eight working groups with a total of 50 members were evenly balanced in terms of gender, medical field, potential conflicts of interest and hierarchical position in the medical and scientific fields. Literature searches were performed using the Medline, PsycInfo, Scopus and Cochrane Library databases (until December 2010). The grading of the strength of the evidence followed the scheme of the Oxford Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine. The recommendations were based on level of evidence, efficacy (meta-analysis of the outcomes pain, sleep, fatigue and health-related quality of life), acceptability (total dropout rate), risks (adverse events) and applicability of treatment modalities in the German health care system. The formulation and grading of recommendations was accomplished using a multi-step, formal consensus process. The guidelines were reviewed by the boards of the participating scientific medical societies. Meditative movement therapies (qi gong, tai chi, yoga) are strongly recommended. Acupuncture can be considered. Mindfulness-based stress reduction as monotherapy and dance therapy as monotherapy are not recommended. Homeopathy is not recommended. In a minority vote, homeopathy was rated as "can be considered". Nutritional supplements and reiki are not recommended.

    To evaluate the functional and radiological outcomes of anterograde headless cannulated screw fixation for medial malleolar fractures. This study included 12 patients (8 males, 4 females; age 27-55 years) with medial malleolar type B fractures according to the Herscovici fracture classification who had undergone anterograde headless cannulated screw fixation surgery between 2012 and 2014. Seven had an isolated medial malleolar fracture and 5 a bimalleolar fracture. All of the bimalleolar fractures were classified as 44-B2 based on the Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen/Orthopaedic Trauma Association (AO/OTA) classification. Postoperatively, bone union was evaluated on direct radiographs at the final follow-up examination. The American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) scoring system was used for clinical evaluation. The mean follow-up period was 17.2 ± 5.3 months (range 12-23). Full union was achieved in all fractures. The mean time to union was 3.4 ± 1.5 months (range 2-5). No instability, loss of reduction, non-union or infection was observed in any patient. The mean AOFAS score was 95.0 ± 5.4 (range 87-99). Based on the AOFAS score, 4 patients showed good results and 8 excellent results. The mean time to return to the previous level of activity was 4.0 ± 2.5 months (range 2-5). In this study, anterograde headless cannulated screw fixation yielded good clinical outcome in the surgical treatment of Herscovici type B fractures. © 2016 S. Karger AG, Basel.

    In late 1988, during production of a recombinant protein for phase I clinical trials, a failure of the cell culture production system occurred due to contamination of the cells by an orbivirus [1]. The incident occurred at Bioferon GmbH & Co, Laupheim, Germany, a joint venture of Biogen, Inc., Cambridge, MA, and Dr. Renstschler Arzneimittel GmbH & Co (Bioferon is currently a wholly owned subsidiary of Rentschler and is now known as Dr. Rentschler Biotechnologie GmbH). The investigation into, and the subsequent response to, the infection can be divided into three stages: Stage I, Investigation and initial response; Stage II, Secondary response; and Stage III: Continuing response.

    Single crystals of [(CH3)2 NH2]5Cd2CuCl11 have been grown and their dielectric and optical properties have been studied. Electric permittivity, losses and linear optic birefringence measurements have shown that the obtained new crystal is isomorphous with the original one - [(CH3)2 NH2]5Cd3Cl11. Phase transitions were observed at 175 K (continuous) and 120 K (first order). It means that partial replacing of cadmium atoms by copper ones does not change the structure and the heavy Cd2CuCl11-2 anions do not influence significantly the interaction of dimethylammonium cations.

    2004-11-01

    Highly (001)-oriented WS2-x films were grown onto oxidized silicon substrates by reactive magnetron sputtering from a metallic tungsten target in argon-hydrogen sulfide mixtures. The best films with respect to the van-der-Waals orientation, i.e. with the (001) planes parallel to the substrate surface, were grown by excitation of the plasma with radio frequency of 27.12 MHz. These films exhibit the largest grains and the lowest film strain. It is shown that this effect is not due to the lower deposition rate at this high excitation frequency. Instead it was found that the lower DC voltage at the sputtering target is advantageous for the film growth since the bombardment of the growing film by highly energetic particles is avoided by this type of plasma excitation.

    The preparation and characterization of terbium doped zinc aluminate photoluminescent films obtained by ultrasonic spray pyrolysis deposition process are described. Variations on doping concentrations in the start spraying solution and substrate temperatures were studied. XRD measurements on these films showed that the crystalline structure depends on the substrate temperature. For an excitation wavelength of 242 nm, all the photoluminescence spectra show peaks located at 488 nm, 546 nm, 589 nm and 621 nm. The photoluminescence intensity reaches values practically constant for the samples deposited at substrate temperatures higher than 400 °C. In this case, concentration quenching of the photoluminescence appears at doping concentrations greater than 0.93 atomic percent into the films. The surface morphology characteristics of the films deposited on glass and silicon substrates, as a function of the deposition temperature, are presented.

  18. Long-term creep properties, including irradiation effects, of DIN 1.4948 steel from SNR-300 primary components

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Schaaf, B. van der

    1986-01-01

    Since 1968, the ''Arbeitsgemeinschaft warmfeste Staehle in VDEH'', sponsored by KfK/PSB, performs creep tests on austenitic stainless steel DIN 1.4948. Wrought materials both in the solution-annealed condition and in weldments are investigated. The DIN 1.4948 steel was finally chosen for the permanent primary structures of the SNR-300, such as the reactor vessel, the grid plate and the primary piping. The chemical specification of DIN 1.4948 steel has been narrowed for application in the SNR-300. The long-term programme at KfK on SNR-300 heats has reached times to rupture of up to 90,000 h for parent metal. At 823 K, the operating temperature of the SNR-300, the mean creep rupture strengths of standard DIN 1.4948 and SNR-300-grade DIN 1.4948 are equal, but the scatter of data for standard DIN 1.4948 parent metal is twice as large as that for SNR-300-grade parent metal. The strength of SNR-300 weldments falls within the scatter band for parent metal. At times to rupture of more than 10 4 h, all parent metals have ductilities of between 10% and 20%, whereas the welded joints show ductilities below 1%. The neutron irradiation effects on SNR-300-grade DIN 1.4948 heats and weldments have been studied with times to rupture of up to 10,000 h in the range from 723 K to 923 K. After irradiation the creep strength is reduced to values below the minimum stress rupture values according to the ASME B + PV Code. The ductility values of parent metal after irradiation are in the range of 4% to 10%. The ductility of welded joints is sometimes below 1%. With increasing Larson-Miller parameter the reduction in creep strength decreases. Therefore, long-term post-irradiation creep tests have been started at KfK and ECN in order to verify experimentally the creep strength reduction factor due to irradiation, for times to rupture of between 10 4 and 5x10 4 h.

    This study aims to assess the intra- and interobserver reliability of commonly used tibial plateau fracture classification systems. This retrospective cohort study included computed tomography (CT) and plain radiographic images (lateral and anteroposterior X-rays) of 60 patients (40 males, 20 females; mean age 45.9 years; range 18 to 80 years) who presented to two orthopaedic clinics between January 2011 and January 2015 with unilateral tibial plateau fractures. All plain X-rays (XR) and CT images were evaluated by four observers on two separate occasions, 1.5 months apart. All fractures were classified according to the Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen-Orthopaedic Trauma Association (AO-OTA), Schatzker, Hohl and Moore, Luo and revised Duparc systems. Intraobserver reliability was measured with Cohen's kappa (κ) coefficient and interobserver reliability with Fleiss' kappa coefficient. When Schatzker classification was performed, interobserver reliability was in moderate level for (κ=0.51) for XR and in substantial level for CT (κ=0.61). When AO/OTA classification was used, interobserver reliability was in moderate level for both methods of diagnosis (κXR=0.43 and κCT=0.54, respectively). In the Hohl and Moore classification, the interobserver reliability was also moderate for both methods of diagnosis (κXR=0.45 and κCT=0.51, respectively). Revised Duparc classification showed the lowest interobserver reliability ranging from fair to moderate level (κXR=0.27-0.55 and κCT=0.44-0.61). Interobserver reliability for Luo classification was κCT=0.47. Intraobserver reliability for CT in Luo classification was in substantial level for observers 1, 2 and 3 (κCT=0.67-0.71) and in perfect level for observer 4 (κCT=0.84). Intraobserver reliability was in substantial level in Schatzker classification and in moderate level at the other classifications. Among the classification systems compared in this study, Schatzker was the most reliable particularly when

    White spots are more common in patients with cleft lip and palate (CLP) than in the normal population. Whether these are due to the cleft itself or concomitant circumstances (e.g., surgical procedures, orthodontic treatments, systemic fluoridation, increased caries risk) remains unclear. This case-control study evaluated both their prevalence in CLP patients versus control subjects and associated risk factors. A total of 73 CLP patients (average age 8.7 years, range 6-18 years, 42 % male) and a control group of 73 age- and gender-matched non-CLP patients were included. Enamel color changes, subsuming mineralization defects (DDE index), mild dental fluorosis (Dean's index), and initial caries (ICDAS score 2), were recorded. Caries index (dmf-t/DMF-T) scores were also recorded to distinguish between high or low caries risk as defined by the Deutsche Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Jugendzahnpflege criteria. Histories of systemic fluoridation, trauma to primary teeth, surgery, and orthodontic treatment were obtained using a questionnaire. Statistical analysis included t test, χ (2) test, and multivariable logistic regression. Enamel color changes were observed three times more often in the CLP group than in the control group (39.7 vs. 12.3 %; p < 0.001). Significantly more patients in the CLP group had a history of orthodontic treatment (38.4 vs. 15.1 %; p < 0.05). An increased risk for enamel color changes was associated with CLP itself [OR (odds ratio) 3.6; 95 % confidence interval (CI) 1.3-9.9] and table salt plus tablets combined for systemic fluoridation (OR 2.7, 95 % CI 1.1-6.9). No increased risks were identified for increased caries risk, history of primary-tooth trauma, or history of orthodontic treatment. The higher prevalence of enamel color changes in the CLP group (more than threefold compared to the control group) was not related to previous orthodontic treatments; however, systemic fluoridation (table salt and tablets) constituted a risk factor for

    Since 2007 interhospital transport of intensive care patients in Lower Saxony appertains to the performance requirements of emergency medical services. Against this background the Working Group for Evaluation of Intensive Care Transport (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Evaluation Intensivverlegung) was established. This group formulated standardized definitions for the requirements of intensive care transport vehicles and a federal statewide monitoring of intensive care transport was implemented to analyze if simultaneously on-call intensive care transport systems (intensive care helicopter and ground based mobile intensive care units) can be deployed need-based and efficiently. A prospective follow-up study and evaluation of intensive care transport in Lower Saxony between April 1(st) 2008 and July 31(st) 2010 was carried out. A total of 6,779 data records were evaluated in this study of which 4,941 (72.9%) missions were located in Lower Saxony, 2,928 (43.2%) missions were carried out by helicopters and 3,851 (56.8%) by ground based mobile intensive care units. The mean duration of a mission was 3 h 59min±2 h 25 min, 4 h 39 min±2 h 23 min by ground based mobile intensive care units and 2 h 21 in±30 min by helicopter units. All systems proved to be feasible for intensive care transport. The degree of urgency was estimated correctly in 94.8% of the evaluated missions and 58.0% of the transfers could not be deployed. In 76.8% patients were transferred to hospitals with a higher level of medical care, 51.7% of patients were transferred for intensive care therapy and 40.4% for an operation/intervention. Of the patients 38.2% required mechanical ventilation and in 48.3% invasive monitoring was carried out. Interhospital transfer of intensive care patients can be carried out need-based with a limited number of intensive care transport vehicles if the missions are deployed effectively by standardized disposition in accordance with performance requirements.

    The present report comprises the essential results of material development and irradiation testing of graphitic matrix materials for spherical HTR fuel elements and completes the documentation of the irradiation data for 20 matrix materials (Juel-1702). The main emphasis is given to the matrices A3-3 (standard matrix) and A3-27 (matrix synthesized resin), both of which are being used as structural materials for the fuel elements of the AVR and the THTR respectively. In addition, comparisons are made between 18 A3-variants and the standard matrix A3-3. It is shown that three of the variants come into question as a potential for use. The results described were obtained in the framework of the HTR project 'Hochtemperaturreaktor-Brennstoffkreislauf' (HBK), in which are involved the Gesellschaft fuer Hochtemperaturreaktor-Technik mbH, Hochtemperaturreaktor-Brennelemente GmbH, Hochtemperatur-Reaktorbau GmbH, Kernforschungsanlage Juelich GmbH, NUKEM GmbH, and Sigri Elektrographit GmbH/Ringsdorff-Werke GmbH.

    The 'Quality Assurance and Demolition Symposium, which has become a tradition established jointly by Applus RTD Deutschland GmbH (formerly compra GmbH) and Brenk Systemplanung GmbH, Aachen, was held also in 2008 with the focus on quality assurance and the demolition of nuclear facilities. The conference began with a series of lectures on knowledge and document management in general, and the use of document management systems in the nuclear field in particular. The evening lecture was presented by Axel Weis (Karlsruhe Research Center) on 'Competence Preservation in Nuclear Technology'. The 24 technical papers presented on the next 2 days of the symposium dealt with non-destructive materials testing and with special problems of radiation protection, demolition, and waste management. In 2009, the meeting will cover similar main topics and will again be held in an interesting environment, perhaps in combination with a tour of a demolition project. (orig.)

    Full Text Available Die erziehungswissenschaftliche Auseinandersetzung mit Medien hat in Deutschland eine lange und vielfältige Tradition. In den letzten Jahrzehnten hat sich die Medienpädagogik zu einer eigenständigen akademischen (Teil-Disziplin entwickelt, die in der (Fach-Öffentlichkeit wahrgenommen wird und sich aktiv in aktuelle gesellschaftliche Diskurse einbringt. Sichtbar wird die Etablierung als Fach u. a. daran, dass an einer Reihe von Hochschulen Professuren geschaffen wurden, die für medienpädagogische Studienelemente oder -gänge und/oder Zusatzausbildungen verantwortlich sind. Der gestiegene Stellenwert der Disziplin zeigt sich auch an ihrer Rolle in der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Erziehungswissenschaft, innerhalb derer sie sich von einer «Arbeitsgemeinschaft auf Zeit» (Mitte der 1990er-Jahre zu einer eigenständigen Sektion (seit 2010 entwickelt hat. Angesichts der gegenwärtig zu beobachtenden Entwicklungen im Medienbereich (u. a. Digitalisierung, Globalisierung, Algorithmisierung, deren Folgen für gesellschaftliche und pädagogische Prozesse und Bereiche kaum zu unterschätzen sind, erstaunt es, dass die Medienpädagogik bis heute dazu neigt, Rechtfertigungsstrategien für die eigenen Existenz zu generieren. Bei einer kritischen Betrachtung (z. B. der universitären Stellenpolitik ist aber zu konstatieren, dass sich die Medienpädagogik auch 40 Jahre nach dem Erscheinen von Dieter Baackes wegweisender Schrift Kommunikation und Kompetenz ihrer Anerkennung und festen Verankerung im akademischen Feld tatsächlich noch immer nicht sicher sein kann. Eine Ursache hierfür liegt möglicherweise in der noch immer grossen (und oftmals geradezu zelebrierten Heterogenität des Faches. So sind die unterschiedlichen Traditionslinien des pädagogischen Umgangs mit Medien, die mitunter nur bedingt miteinander vereinbar sind, bis heute zu beobachten und wirkmächtig. Zu unterscheiden ist hierbei bspw. eine auf Emanzipation, kommunikative Kompetenz

    Fruehstadium in Bezug auf die veroeffentlichten Empfehlungen der Arbeitsgemeinschaft Stereotaxie der Deutschen Gesellschaft fuer Radioonkologie (DEGRO). Planungscomputertomographie und Strukturdatensaetze (Planungszielvolumen, PTV; Risikoorgane, OARs) von 3 NSCLC-Patienten im Fruehstadium wurden an 22 Strahlentherapieabteilungen mit SBRT-Erfahrung gesendet: Jede Abteilung sollte einen Behandlungsplan nach DEGRO-Richtlinie generieren. Die Verschreibungsdosis betrug 3 Fraktionen mit je 15 Gy auf die 65%-Isodose. Es wurden 87 Plaene erzeugt: 36 mit intensitaetsmodulierter Arc-Therapie (IMAT), 21 mit dreidimensionaler konformaler Strahlentherapie (3D-CRT), 6 mit intensitaetsmodulierte Radiotherapie mit statischen Feldern (SF-IMRT), 9 mit helikaler Strahlentherapie und 15 mit robotergestuetzter Radiochirurgie. PTV-Dosisabdeckung und alle gleichzeitig erfassten OAR-Dosen hielten sich an die klinischen Grenzwerte der DEGRO-Richtlinie. Dennoch variierten durchschnittliche PTV-Dosen (Mittelwert 58,0 Gy; Spanne 52,8-66,4 Gy) und Dosiskonformitaetsindizes (Mittelwert 0,75; Spanne 0,60-1,00) zwischen Institutionen und Techniken (p ≤ 0,02). OAR-Dosen variierten erheblich zwischen den Institutionen, aber unabhaengig von der Technik (p = 0,21). Alle untersuchten Behandlungstechniken eignen sich gemaess den DEGRO-Empfehlungen fuer die SBRT von NSCLC im Fruehstadium. Die Homogenisierung der SBRT-Anwendung in Deutschland ist durch die Richtlinien moeglich; jedoch waren einige Charakteristika der Behandlungsplaene stark technik- und benutzerabhaengig und eine weitere Homogenisierung ist fuer kuenftige Studien und Empfehlungen noetig. Eine optimierte Bestrahlungsplanung sollte immer dem ALARA-Prinzip (so niedrig wie vernuenftig erreichbar) folgen. (orig.)

  16. Idle load losses of an injection-lubricated spur gear drive; Untersuchungen zu den Leerlaufverlusten eines einspritzgeschmierten Stirnradgetriebes

    The author investigated the effects of pressure in the gear casing on the load-independent meshing losses up to circumferential speeds of v{sub t} = 200 m/s. Apart from the reduction of losses, the limits of pressure drop are of interest. As the oil retains its characteristics even in partial vacuum, neither oil components nor additives must evaporate during operation. This means that also the effects of partial vacuum on the physical mechanisms was investigated as these may induce explosions of the oil spray inside the gear. Also considered are the characteristics of oil and air which are required for the design of the suction system. The investigations were carried out in close cooperation with Messrs. BHS-Cincinnati, Sonthofen, with financial aid from the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Industrieller Forschungsvereinigungen (AIF). [German] Turbogetriebe werden vorzugsweise zur Drehzahlwandlung zwischen Turbinen und Generatoren oder Verdichtern eingesetzt. Die groessten bekannten Ausfuehrungen solcher Getriebe liegen derzeit bei Leistungen bis P{sub A}=100 MW mit Antriebsdrehzahlen bis n{sub T}=7200 min{sup -1}. Mit der stetigen Weiterentwicklung der Antriebsmaschinen wachsen auch die Anforderungen an die Turbogetriebe. Derzeit befinden sich Anlagen mit P{sub A}=140 MW und Getriebeeingangsdrehzahlen bis n{sub 1}=10 000 min{sup -1} im Planungsstadium. Mit der Umfangsgeschwindigkeit steigen die Ventilations- und Quetschverluste ueberproportional an. Die daraus resultierende groessere Verlustwaerme fuehrt dazu, dass die Probleme bezueglich Kuehlung und Schmierung fuer den Getriebebauer zunehmend in den Vordergrund treten. Im Betrieb reicht der zur Schmierung benoetigte Oelvolumenstrom nicht zur Kuehlung der Getriebe aus, der groesste Teil des eingespritzten Oelvolumenstroms wird zur Kuehlung benoetigt. Dieser Volumenstrom senkt das Temperaturniveau im Getriebe, verschlechtert aber gleichzeitig den Getriebewirkungsgrad n{sub G}. Da die Getriebe zwischen Kraft- und

  4. Spin-polarized electron gas in Co2MSi/SrTiO3(M= Ti, V, Cr, Mn, and Fe) heterostructures

    KAUST Repository

    2016-06-08

    Spin-polarized density functional theory is used to study the TiO2 terminated interfaces between the magnetic Heusler alloys Co2Si (M = Ti, V, Cr, Mn, and Fe) and the non-polar band insulator SrTiO3. The structural relaxation at the interface turns out to depend systematically on the lattice mis- match. Charge transfer from the Heusler alloys (mainly the M 3d orbitals) to the Ti dxy orbitals of the TiO2 interface layer is found to gradually grow from M = Ti to Fe, resulting in an electron gas with increasing density of spin-polarized charge carriers.

    2016-05-18

    CO2 capture and storage technology is of key importance to reduce the greenhouse effect. By its large surface area and sp3 hybridization, Li-functionalized silicene is demonstrated to be a promising CO2 absorbent that is stable up to at least 500 K and has a very high storage capacity of 28.6 mol/kg (55.7 wt%). The adsorption energy of CO2 on Li-functionalized silicene is enhanced as compared to pristine silicene, to attain an almost ideal value that still facilitates easy release. In addition, the band gap is found to change sensitively with the CO2 coverage. (© 2016 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH &Co. KGaA, Weinheim). © 2016 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim
