    the most significant stages in the erection of the Millennium Arch outside the Palacio de Congresos, venue for the 12th IBMAC.
    These pictures are divided into six chapters: Background, Components, Springline, Piers, Arch, Centring Erection and Removal, and Trimming.

    A lo largo de la historia, el Arco de fábrica ha sido el componente constructivo más característico de la Arquitectura y la Ingeniería desde que después de sus inicios etruscos en la época romana fuera desarrollado adelantándose con ello a la cultura helénica.
    El Arco, desde entonces, viene empleándose como una solución constructiva eficiente para cubrir espacios con materiales que no soportan tracciones. La originalidad técnica del Arco lo ha llevado a imponerse como símbolo de las hazañas bélicas como era el Arco de Triunfo.
    En el cambio de siglo y milenio en el que nos encontramos, un salto técnico fundamental se desvela en este Congreso, el Sistema de Albañilería Integral, que abre la posibilidad de ampliar el campo de aplicación de la albañilería con la incorporación del acero, a través de las perforaciones de las piezas, lográndose por fin armar en las tres direcciones del espacio cualquier muro de fábrica que se desee.
    El Arco del Milenio conmemoró el 12th IBMAC de Madrid, mostrando en él los avances técnicos que el Sistema de Albañilería Integral permite, al tratarse de un arco inclinado en el espacio y, por tanto, el primer arco de fábrica construido fuera de la vertical, mediante fábrica de Ladriflor aparejada a tizón, reforzada con barras y cercos.
    El Arco del Milenio, diseñado por J.M. Adell (Presidente del 12th IBMAC, parte de un cilindro de 14 m de diámetro, inclinado 30º sobre el terreno, y construido con fábrica de ladrillo de un pie de grueso, alternando una hilada de color amarillo de cada seis en rojo. El hueco deja un paso libre de 10 m de lado y 5,5 m de altura. La fábrica está armada regularmente por tendeles con cerchas cada

  19. Arco to enter European PGE production with new Rotterdam plant

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Arco Chemical (Newtown Square, PA) will enter production of propylene glycol ethers (PGEs) in Europe by building a 70,000-m.t./year plant at its Rotterdam site. Arco's board has approved the project, with construction to begin this year and completion expected in mid-1995. 'This new plant supports the company's long-standing strategy to increase its downstream integration in value-added derivatives of propylene oxide,' says Jack Oppasser, president of Arco Chemical Europe (Maidenhead, U.K.). 'It allows the company to sustain its strong position in the growing European glycol ether market.' Arco's move represents a challenge to Dow Europe (Horgen, Switzerland), which dominates the European PGE market. Dow is Europe's biggest producer of PGEs, with its Dowanol brands commanding a share greater than 50% of the estimated 90,000-m.t./year methyl-based PGE market. This was recently boosted by completion of the expansion of its plant at Stade, Germany, from 60,000 m.t./year to 110,000 m.t./year. While Arco does not currently make PGEs in Europe, it is the second-largest supplier, with about 15,000 m.t.-20,000 m.t./year, via 'third-party manufacturing arrangements' with European producers, including BP Chemicals, and imports from its 90-million lbs/year plant at Bayport, TX. However, Arco refuses to comment on this because of 'antitrust aspects.'

    1951-05-28

    At the request of the Division of Biology and Medicine of the AEC, the Biophysics Section of the Radiological Sciences Department at Hanford undertook the task of conducting a background survey for naturally occurring radioactive materials in the environs of the Arco Reactor Test Site in Central Idaho. This survey was part of an overall study which included meteorological measurements by the the Air Weather Service, Geological Studies by the USGS, and an ecological survey of plants and animals by members of the Idaho State College at Pocatello. In general, the measurements at Arco followed the pattern established for environmental monitoring at the Hanford Site with some additional measurements made for natural isotopes not normally of concern at Hanford. A number of analysis included materials such as plutonium and I-131 which were carried out for the purpose of establishing analytical backgrounds for the procedures used. 20 refs., 13 figs., 11 tabs.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A.R.C.O. is a program whose objective is to assist the fuel strategy of a CANDU 600 nuclear power plant for the task of selecting channels where rechanges occur. The application of this tool implies, as a direct consequence, a notable decrease of the time employed by the professional for the task of selecting channels and, indirectly, a possible improvement of 'burn-up' extraction values and reactivity through channels selection under better conditions to carry out rechanging operations.

    Full Text Available PURPOSE: To illustrate the radiological findings and review the current literature concerning a rare congenital abnormality of the posterior arch of the atlas. CASE REPORT: An adult female without neurological symptoms presented with an absent posterior arch of the atlas, examined with plain films and helical computerized tomography. Complete agenesis of the posterior arch of the atlas is a rare entity that can be easily identified by means of plain films. Although it is generally asymptomatic, atlantoaxial instability and neurological deficits may occur because of structural instability. Computerized tomography provides a means of assessing the extent of this abnormality and can help evaluate the integrity of neural structures. Although considered to be rare entities, defects of the posterior arch of the atlas may be discovered as incidental asymptomatic findings in routine cervical radiographs. Familiarity with this abnormality may aid medical professionals in the correct management of these cases.OBJETIVO: Descrever os achados radiológicos e revisar a literatura de uma anormalidade congênita rara do arco posterior do atlas.

    To test the hypothesis that bone marrow oedema (BME) observed on MRI in patients with avascular necrosis (AVN) of the femoral head represents an indicator of subchondral fracture. Thirty-seven symptomatic hips of 27 consecutive patients (53 % women, mean age 49.2) with AVN of the femoral head and associated BME on magnetic resonance (MR) imaging were included. MR findings were correlated with computed tomography (CT) of the hip and confirmed by histopathological examination of the resected femoral head. Imaging studies were analysed by two radiologists with use of the ARCO classification. On MR imaging a fracture line could be identified in 19/37 (51 %) cases, which were classified as ARCO stage 3 (n = 15) and stage 4 (n = 4). The remaining 18/37 (49 %) cases were classified as ARCO stage 2. However, in all 37/37 (100 %) cases a subchondral fracture was identified on CT, indicating ARCO stage 3/4 disease. The extent of subchondral fractures and the femoral head collapse was graded higher on CT as compared to MRI (P < 0.05). Histopathological analysis confirmed bone necrosis and subchondral fractures. In patients with AVN, BME of the femoral head represents a secondary sign of subchondral fracture and thus indicates ARCO stage 3 disease. circle BME on MRI in AVN of femoral head indicates a subchondral fracture.

Raio X de tórax revelou: hiperinsuflação pulmonar difusa, alargamento mediastinal, coração com volume e configurações normais, arco aórtico à direita e alterações degenerativas vertebrais. Tomografia computadorizada do tórax: arco aórtico duplo circundando e comprimindo a traqueia e o esôfago. Arco direito mais calibroso, emergindo dele o tronco braquiocefálico. Do arco esquerdo emergem a artéria carótida comum e a subclávia esquerda. Diagnóstico: anel vascular traqueoesofagiano decorrente do duplo arco aórtico, sendo o arco direito dominante. No presente caso, optou-se por seguimento clínico da paciente, levando-se em conta a intensidade dos sintomas apresentados.Vascular rings represent 1 to 2% of cases of congenital heart disease. We report a rare case of double aortic arch. A 60-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital presenting a one-year history of dysphagia, six months of dyspnea and two months of sporadic chest pain. Radiograph of the chest revealed diffuse pulmonary hyper inflation, widening of the mediastinum, heart of normal size and shape, a right-sized aortic arch, and degenerative changes of the thoracic spine. Computed tomography of the chest showed a double aortic arch encircling and compressing the trachea and the esophagus. The right aortic arch had a larger caliber, with brachiocephalic trunk arising from it. The left common carotid artery and the left subclavian artery arose from the left aortic arch. Diagnosis: tracheoesophageal vascular ring due to double aortic arch, with dominant right arch. In this case, we chose to follow the patient medically, taking into consideration the mildness of the symptoms.

    2002-01-01

    An aging study was performed using triple GEMs and a print circuit board (PCB) with an intense X-ray radiation source. The GEM chamber consists of three identical GEMs and a large gas gain (6000) was shared by them. The chamber and its gas circulation line was carefully cleaned and constructed with stainless steel materials. The detector was irradiated continuously about 750 h without interruption until a large amount of charge was accumulated. A single-wire counter served as a monitoring device to check the beam and ambient conditions. The quality of the Ar-CO sub 2 gas was checked by gas chromatography and no measurable amount of hydrocarbons were found. 27 mC/mm sup 2 was accumulated with no noticeable degradation and no deposit or discoloration was found in an optical check.

    Detailed measurements and simulations have been performed, investigating the properties of Ar/CO2 mixtures as a MDT drift gas. This note presents these measurements and compares them to other drift gases that have been simulated using GARFIELD, HEED and MAGBOLTZ.This note also describes systematic errors to be considered in the operation of precision drift chambers using such gases. In particular we analyze effects of background rate variations, gas-density changes, variations of the gas composition, autocalibration, magnetic field differences and non-concentricity of the wire. Their impact on the reconstructed muon momentum resolution was simulated with DICE/ATRECON.The different properties of linear and non-linear drift gases and their relative advantages and disadvantages are discussed in detail.

    Full Text Available Actually geometrics’ science offers new opportunities and interesting applications in the field of Cultural Heritage. These applications are strictly related to preservation, restoration but even to cataloging and reproducing a monument that no longer has its original integrity.  The possibility of obtaining 3D data, of such a model close to reality, enables us to realize studies that sometimes are too complex or impossible. The paper will describe the study of a monumental arch, the Arco dei Gavi, built in Verona during the I sec. A.C., that was destroyed in 1805 by the Napoleonic army, and its wooden model that was realized in 1813 and it has a very important role concerning the monument’s reconstruction. The purpose is to realize two threedimensional models which can be comparable to each other, two models with recognizable differences, similarities and discontinuities about shapes and single elements that compose the monument. It should also be noted that some original parts of the monument have not been relocated but are badly preserved in a museum: the 3D digital model helps to identify these parts in their original location. The main steps of the work can be summarized in: collecting the historical documentation of Arco dei Gavi and its representations; identifying proper instruments (laser scanning and photogrammetric hardware and software; surveying the Arch and its wooden model; identifying a unique and shared reference system; comparing both digital models related to the same scale; choosing a three-dimensional representation to emphasize the results; reallocation of outstanding pieces (virtual anastylosis.

    dos aneurismas do arco aórtico é uma solução interessante para pacientes selecionados. OBJETIVO: Comparar os sucessos técnico e clínico registrados nas diferentes regiões anatômicas do arco aórtico após a colocação de endoprótese. MÉTODOS: Entre junho de 1999 e outubro de 2006, 178 pacientes foram tratados na nossa instituição devido a doenças da aorta torácica com a colocação de endoprótese, sendo que o arco aórtico estava envolvido em 64 casos. De acordo com a classificação proposta por Ishimaru, a zona aórtica 0 estava envolvida em 14 casos, zona 1 em 12 casos e zona 2 em 38 casos. Procedimentos de debranching do arco aórtico e revascularização extra-anatômica dos troncos supra-aórticos foram realizados em 37 casos para obter um adequado colo aórtico proximal. RESULTADOS: Zona 0. Comprimento do colo proximal: 44±6 mm. Sucesso clínico inicial de 78,6%: dois óbitos (acidente vascular cerebral, um vazamento do tipo Ia. Seguimento médio de 16,4±11 meses com sucesso clínico a médio prazo de 85,7%. Zona 1. Comprimento do colo proximal: 28±5 mm. Sucesso clínico inicial de 66,7%: 0 óbitos, quatro vazamentos do tipo Ia.

    Full Text Available El problema de dibujar redes con las actividades en los arcos (redes PERT es un problema NP-completo. Diferentes autores (Syslo, 1984 han establecido límites al mismo. En primer lugar debemos diferenciar entre redes con actividades en los nudos y redes con actividades en los arcos. Si las actividades están en los nudos, el dibujo de la red es muy fácil, pero cuando las actividades están en los arcos, generalmente es necesaria la utilización de actividades ficticias para mantener de forma correcta las relaciones entre las actividades. En este artículo se propone un sencillo y didáctico algoritmo para el caso de un pequeño número de nodos donde es necesario un algoritmo intuitivo. En el algoritmo se definen cuatro tipos diferentes de nodos que pueden aparecer en el grafo, permitiéndonos identificar las actividades ficticias tal y como se muestra en un ejemplo.

    2001-06-01

    Full Text Available A mathematical model was developed to describe fluid flow, heat transfer, and electromagnetic phenomena in the arc and bath regions of DC Electric Arc Furnaces (DCEAF. The model is used to examine the effect on flow patterns and temperature distribution in the bath, under the influence of both an arc and bottom argon injection in steel or steel/slag systems. Validation of the model employed experimental measurements from systems physically related to DC-EAF from literature. For the conditions analyzed, electromagnetic forces dominate the fluid motion in the bath. Buoyancy and shear forces from the arc have a negligible effect in driving the flow; however, they partially counteract the electromagnetic forces. Slag decreases fluid motion in the steel and enhances temperature stratification in the system. Stirring of the bath, using a 3-nozzle inert gas injection system, is found to promote temperature uniformity in the regions near the lateral wall of the furnace.

    Se desarrolló un modelo matemático que describe el flujo de fluidos, transferencia de calor y fenómenos electromagnéticos en las regiones del arco y baño en hornos eléctricos de arco de corriente continua (HEA-CC. El modelo predice patrones de flujo y distribuciones de temperatura bajo la influencia del arco eléctrico y del burbujeo de argón en baños monofásicos (acero ó en sistemas bifásicos (acero / escoria. Para validar, parcialmente, el modelo se usaron mediciones experimentales citadas en la literatura sobre sistemas análogos al HEA. Bajo las condiciones analizadas, el burbujeo de argón domina el flujo de fluidos promoviendo excelente homogenización dentro del baño. La escoria afecta negativamente al mezclado, fomentando la formación de zonas calientes sobre la superficie del acero. El arco eléctrico calienta al baño y lo agita mediante fuerzas electromagnéticas. Asimismo, se encontró que las fuerzas boyantes y de corte sobre la superficie del baño son

    Full Text Available This paper deals with a new methodology for the estimation of the strength of circular arches with cold-formed trapezoidal section. These cover elements, mainly subjected to compression stress and with circular curvature should be dimensioned taking into account the possibility of buckling instability. Currently, no standard describes a method for calculating the buckling consideration of curved elements. The methodology proposed herein shares the same philosophy of the European buckling curves method established in the Eurocodes. Thus, an experimental coefficient considering the effects of buckling and geometrical and mechanical imperfections depending on the slenderness of the considered arch have been obtained. For this, it was necessary to determine the experimental strength of at least three arcs, which radius and spans are sufficiently differentiated.En este trabajo se presenta una metodología de cálculo para la determinación de la carga última de arcos circulares con perfiles trapezoidales conformados en frío. Estos elementos de cubierta, sometidos fundamentalmente a esfuerzos de compresión y de directriz curva, deben ser dimensionados teniendo en cuenta la inestabilidad por pandeo. Actualmente, ninguna normativa describe un procedimiento de cálculo para la consideración del pandeo en elementos curvos. La metodología aquí planteada se basa en la filosofía de las curvas europeas de pandeo establecidas en los Eurocódigos. Así, se ha obtenido un coeficiente reductor empírico que considera los efectos del pandeo conjuntamente con imperfecciones geométricas y mecánicas en función de la esbeltez del arco considerado. Para ello, es necesario determinar la carga última experimental de al menos tres arcos, cuyos radios y luces se encuentren lo suficientemente diferenciados.

    Full Text Available Due to the project developed by the technicians of the Municipality of Arcos de la Frontera in order to restore the visible remains of the Medieval wall preserved in the southeastern area of this town, the authors of this paper conducted the archaeological excavation, drawing survey and study of this enclosure. As a result of these analysis have been identified eight constructive periods, grouped into three cycles. With the aim of obtaining a better understanding of this monument, these activities have been completed with the use of written sources, the urban fieldwork, the study of micro-toponymy, the analogy with other architectural elements and, to a lesser extent, with the information provided by the archaeological materials. The results of these analyses make possible to propose a reasonable hypothesis regarding the foundation of the wall and the relationship between its three southeastern gates. The conclusions mean an approach to the urban development of this area of Arcos de la Frontera from al-Andalus times until the late Modern Age.Con motivo del proyecto elaborado por los técnicos del Ayuntamiento de Arcos de la Frontera para la restauración del tramo de muralla medieval conservada en el sureste de esta localidad, los autores de este artículo realizaron la intervención arqueológica, documentación planimétrica y estudio de dicha cerca.

Essas despesas incluíam aquelas referentes ao pagamento dos tradutores recrutados por Frei Veloso, como Manoel Jacinto Nogueira da Gama, matemático, filósofo naturalista e professor que traduziu obras nas áreas de matemática e engenharia. As traduções publicadas sob a supervisão de Veloso eram introduzidas por dedicatórias e prefácios de tom laudatório escritos pelos tradutores, que assim reconheciam seu débito com a monarquia e declaravam sua fidelidade à Coroa e às tradições portuguesas. O objetivo deste trabalho é mostrar que esses paratextos funcionaram como instrumentos para a aceitação dos princípios científicos iluministas, pois as ideias progressistas eram apresentadas aos leitores portugueses por discursos comprometidos com as tradições do antigo regime português e com a retórica escolástica.Between 1799 e 1801, the publishing house Casa Literaria do Arco do Cego was fully active in Lisbon and dedicated to publishing scientific and didactic works regarding the application of natural scientific knowledge. It was run by Friar José Mariano da Conceição Veloso, a Brazilian naturalist and tireless translator. To accomplish its aim of bringing progress to the Portuguese kingdom through instruction, Arco do Cego held its activities within a system of patronage in which the Portuguese crown would pay for all of its expenses, including the payment of the translators working for Veloso.

    Full Text Available Este estudo teve como principal objetivo a caracterização morfodinâmica e sedimentológica do semi-arco praial entre o Cabo Búzios e a cidade de Barra de São João, no litoral norte do Estado do Rio de Janeiro. A amostragem foi realizada em seis perfis ao longo do semi-arco praial durante onze meses consecutivos. As mudanças espaciais e temporais do perfil da praia foram associadas às analises granulométricas de 558 amostras. Os parâmetros sedimentológicos analisados foram matéria orgânica, calcário, material particulado fino e teor de umidade. Os resultados indicam que os setores norte e sul deste semi-arco possuem características morfodinâmicas e sedimentológicas distintas. Ao norte há um predomínio de areia grossa (tamanho médio de 0,66mm, entretanto a granulometria diminui em direção ao sul do semi-arco. A comparação entre perfis topográficos mostrou um perfil praial extremamente suave nas áreas ao sul, com valores variando de 1/41m a 1/18m de declive. Ao norte, observouse perfil topográfico bastante inclinado (1/6m, sem grandes variações na morfologia e largura de praia. O que se observa neste semi-arco é que a energia de onda atinge-o de maneira distinta, criando estes dois setores com características morfodinâmicas e sedimentológicas distintas.

    Full Text Available El objetivo del estudio fue demostrar el origen infeccioso de la mortandad de alevinos y de las lesiones presentadas en adultos de Oncorhynchus mykiss Walbaum 1792, "trucha arco iris", en la piscigranja "El Ingenio», empleando una metodología simple y efectiva. Se colectaron alevinos, ovas, adultos y muestras de agua de las pozas de alevinos. Las muestras se cultivaron sobre semillas de Cucurbita maxima ‘zapallo’, como sustrato, evidenciándose colonias típicas a los siete días. Las características microscópicas de las hilas correspondieron al patrón gráfico de Saprolegnia sp., lo que concuerda con la sintomatología observada en los adultos capturados. La presencia de este patógeno estaría relacionada con la elevada mortandad registrada en los alevinos (40%, probablemente por la importación de las ovas infectadas con el hongo. El método fue electivo, porque el sustrato empleado, favoreció el crecimiento del hongo, y es de fácil aplicación y bajo costo.

    Full Text Available This study presents the fi rst results of the sample analysis of two boreholes drilled in a quarry located in the Arcos region(MG. Petrographic analysis (macro- and microscopic observations was performed and made possible to study in detailan approximately 175 meter-section, which shows the basement and 10 sedimentary units. The basement is represented bydark green to gray fi ne- to medium-grained granodiorite. At the base of the sedimentary sequence, Unit 1 is representedby a decimetric layer of polymictic diamictite and is overlain by the impure limestones of Unit 2. Unit 3 is carbonatic andcontains calcilutite and layers of carbonaceous shale. This unit gradually changes to Unit 4, which is composed of marland mudstone. Unit 5 is composed of a thick sequence of massive calcarenites, which begins to show lamellar layers andmicrobial structures in Unit 6. Unit 7 is similar to the previous one, but contains several intraclastic layers. The numberof lamellar layers decreases sharply, giving rise to a thick interval with considerable granulometric variations in Unit 8, which grades to the oolitic calcarenite of Unit 9. At the top of the sequence, Unit 10 is a thick package of stromatolitic dolarenite. Thisstratigraphic arrangement allows the identifi cation of progradational/retrogradational trends. The sedimentological features, especially those present in the basal portion, suggest that at least part of the carbonatic sequence could represent a cap carbonate, supporting a glacial origin for the diamictite. Other data also collected from the basal units suggest that changes occurred in the source area at the beginning of the fi lling of the basin.

  20. Liga NiCrSiBC: Microestrutura e Dureza de Revestimentos Processados a Arco e a Laser

    2015-03-01

    Full Text Available A técnica de processamento é determinante sobre características de um revestimento. Isso porque o aporte térmico, que depende da técnica e dos parâmetros, tem influência sobre a diluição e a taxa de solidificação. Em ligas com baixa complexidade metalúrgica, o impacto do processamento com técnicas de deposição que impõem maior taxa de resfriamento podem se traduzir em refino da microestrutura. Espera-se que quanto mais refinada a microestrutura maior a resistência mecânica do revestimento. Entretanto, na deposição de ligas de maior complexidade metalúrgica isso nem sempre ocorre, porque a elevada taxa de resfriamento pode suprimir formação/precipitação de fases responsáveis pela resistência. Neste estudo, a influência do processamento sobre microestrutura e dureza de revestimentos da liga Colmonoy-6® foi avaliada. A liga foi processada por plasma com arco transferido (PTA e laser de diodo de alta potência (HPDL sobre chapas de AISI 304 com dois níveis de diluição. Em ambos os casos, revestimentos de boa qualidade e livres defeitos foram obtidos. O aumento do teor de Fe (diluição e as diferentes taxas de resfriamento decorrem do processamento com diferentes parâmetros e técnicas. Em consequência, ocorrem mudanças significativas na microestrutura e na dureza dos revestimentos que estão associadas à distribuição, morfologia e composição química dos carbonetos e, principalmente, dos boretos.

    2015-10-01

    Full Text Available Resumo: A indoleamina 2,3-dioxigenase (IDO é uma enzima que cataboliza o aminoácido triptofano, levando à inibição da proliferação de linfócitos T, seja pela exaustão desse aminoácido no ambiente, ou pela indução via catabólitos induzindo-os a apoptose. Em mamíferos, esta enzima atua em diversas condições do organismo como a gestação, infecções, inflamações crônicas, transplantes e tumores, atuando na regulação imunológica. Estudos recentes identificaram a presença de moléculas homólogas a IDO em espécies filogeneticamente inferiores, cuja função parece estar restrita ao metabolismo do triptofano como fonte de energia. Este estudo teve por objetivo averiguar a expressão da IDO em células sanguíneas e órgãos hematopoiéticos de truta arco-íris pela imuno-histoquímica, buscando evidências de que a mesma poderia, nesta espécie, estar relacionada ao sistema imune. A expressão de IDO foi observada nos órgãos hematopoiéticos estudados incluindo o rim cefálico que apresentou marcação em células interrenais e leucócitos; baço, na qual a marcação restringiu à alguns leucócitos; no fígado a marcação ficou limitada à apenas algumas células dentro dos vasos sanguíneos e nas extensões sanguíneas pode-se visualizar a marcação de alguns leucócitos como os monócitos, linfócitos e neutrófilos. A predominância da marcação da IDO nesses tecidos pode constituir uma evidência de que a IDO identificada na O. mykiss esteja relacionada ao sistema imunológico nessa espécie.

    Full Text Available Se analizan secciones volcano-sedimentarias ordovícicas del norte del Sistema de Famatina, aportando nuevos datos petrológicos para la comprensión de la naturaleza de sus magmas y de los procesos volcanológicos asociados con la evolución del arco magmático en la región. Información paleontológica previa, apoyada por estudios estructurales y por las relaciones de intrusividad con una granodiorita de 485 ± 7 Ma, asignaron edades del Tremadociano temprano a las sedimentitas de Las Angosturas y del Arenigiano temprano - medio a las de las secciones Vuelta de la Tolas - Chaschuil y quebrada Larga - Punta Pétrea. Los litotipos que integran la sucesión tremadociana son lavas basálticas, andesíticas, dacíticas y riodacíticas, interestratificadas con limolitas y psamitas finas, polideformadas y con importante alteración hidrotermal, habiéndose reconocido paragénesis de metamorfismo de bajo grado y de contacto. Los depósitos arenigianos, afectados por plegamiento y desarrollo de clivaje localmente, consisten en lavas basálticas, andesíticas, dacíticas y riolíticas, facies hialoclásticas, depósitos resedimentados sin-eruptivos y volcanogénicos. Si bien ambas asociaciones son subalcalinas y peraluminosas, se concluye, para los representantes tremadocianos, que sus características son consistentes con un ambiente donde fueron producidos fundidos de un manto empobrecido (MORB y enriquecidos durante eventos de subducción, asociados con la evolución de una cuenca marginal. Las volcanitas arenigianas muestran filiación geoquímica de arco magmático continental. Ambas asociaciones exhiben características similares a las observadas en la Puna occidental, lo que plantearía la posible continuación en la Puna del arco magmático ordovícico reconocido en el Sistema de Famatina.

    También los peces adultos usualmente migran río abajo después del desove y exhiben un comportamiento de territorialidad, lo cual crea mayor dispersión. Se sacrificaron de 5 a 7 individuos por semana para estudiar su biología reproductiva. La proporción de hembras a machos fue de 1,3: 1, indicando esto una distribución aproximadamente igual entre los sexos. Los meses de marzo a abril son los últimos de la época de desove, la cual se calcula comienza en enero. La mayoría de los peces muestreados tenían sus gónadas en las 3 primeras etapas de desarrollo. Unos pocos se encontraron desovando activamente o recientemente gastados. Todo indica que la trucha Arco Iris se reproduce naturalmente en Costa Rica.

    Full Text Available Os aços inoxidáveis duplex (AID são materiais que apresentam elevada resistência à corrosão com altos valores de resistência mecânica motivando sua utilização em diversos componentes de processo na indústria offshore. No entanto, existem grandes desafios na soldagem destes materiais em termos de produtividade e qualidade da junta produzida, tendo em vista sua ampla utilização desde componentes de pequenas espessuras, tais como umbilicais, até de grandes espessuras, como tubulações de linhas de injeção de água salgada. No que concerne a tubulações de espessuras pequenas é empregado satisfatoriamente o processo de soldagem Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW conhecido como TIG. No que diz a respeito a tubulações de paredes espessas foi implementado, recentemente, o processo automático de soldagem por arco submerso (SAW na linha de pré-montagem de tubulações, aumentando consideravelmente a produtividade das juntas produzidas. No entanto, existe uma grande demanda de tempo para a realização de um novo passe de solda, em virtude da máxima temperatura interpasse exigida ser inferior a 150ºC. Portanto, o presente trabalho apresenta os resultados da caracterização e avaliação da resistência à corrosão de uma junta soldada correspondente a uma tubulação de aço inoxidável duplex (AID UNS S31803 de 21,4 mm de espessura de parede soldada pelos processos de soldagem MIG (GMAW na raiz e arco submerso (SAW no enchimento e acabamento, empregando-se temperaturas interpasses entre 150 e 290ºC. Os resultados da caracterização das propriedades mecânicas, composição química e resistência à corrosão em diversas regiões da junta soldada foram comparadas com os obtidos para o metal de base (MB da tubulação, assim como com os valores mínimos exigidos pelas normas de projeto. Deste modo, o presente trabalho permite avaliar a influência da temperatura interpasse nas propriedades da junta em decorrência de um poss

    2011-03-01

    Full Text Available O estudo de boa parte dos fenômenos envolvidos no processo de soldagem necessita de auxílio visual e a luminosidade emitida pelo arco pode representar uma grande barreira. Uma das formas utilizadas atualmente para se obter a visualização do processo, sem a interferência do arco, consiste em iluminar o processo com o infravermelho próximo e utilizar filtros durante a aquisição das imagens. Assim, é importante investigar o comportamento do arco de soldagem em relação à sua emissão luminosa no espectro infravermelho. Desta forma, a proposta deste trabalho foi a realização de um estudo comparativo entre a emissão do arco de soldagem de radiação infravermelha próxima em dois processos largamente utilizados, TIG e MIG/MAG, focando também sua influência por parâmetros como a corrente de soldagem e a proteção gasosa utilizada. Com o uso de um sensor de luminosidade e a utilização de um sistema de lentes ópticas, foram realizados experimentos, adquirindo o espectro luminoso emitido pelo arco voltaico. Através dos resultados obtidos, ou seja, do valor numérico de energia luminosa do arco de soldagem (integração do espectro é possível se obter, com a utilização desta mesma metodologia, a energia luminosa no infravermelho próximo e, consequentemente, a intensidade luminosa, necessária para a sobreposição do arco durante a aquisição de imagens.Most of the phenomenon studied in the welding processes needs a vision system and the arc light emission can create a great barrier. Nowadays, one of the techniques used for visualizing the process, without arc interference, is the illumination of the process with near-infrared laser and the use of optic filters during the image acquisition. Thus, it is important to investigate the welding arc behavior in respect to its light emission within the near-infrared spectrum. Therefore, this work aims to perform a comparative study of the arc near infrared emission in one of the two

    1987-08-01

    Full Text Available A experiência cirúrgica no tratamento de 72 pacientes consecutivos com dissecções da aorta proximal foi analisada, com o objetivo de identificar os fatores agravantes do risco da operação. Trinta e nove pacientes foram operados na fase aguda e, em 9 pacientes, o comprometimento era restrito à aorta ascendente. O procedimento cirúrgico mais utilizado foi a substituição da aorta ascendente por tubo de Dacron, associada à correção da delaminação, tendo-se atuado no arco aórtico apenas em 5 pacientes. A mortalidade hospitalar foi de 27,7%, assumindo um valor de 43,5% para os pacientes operados na fase aguda e de 9% para os operados cronicamente. Em 45% desses pacientes houve uma relação direta entre a causa do óbito e a existência de complicações no pré-operatório. Foram considerados como determinantes de maior risco cirúrgico: as lesões neurológicas prévias, o tamponamento cardíaco, o choque cardiogênico, a isquemia miocárdica aguda e a disfunção renal. A compressão do tronco braquiocefálico, ou das artérias carótidas pela dissecção, o orifício de rotura primária da íntima no arco aórtico, a isquemia mesentérica e, nos casos operados na fase aguda, a insuficiência valvar aórtica de moderada ou grave repercussão também foram relacionados a um risco operatório mais elevado. Em conclusão, o resultado do tratamento cirúrgico das dissecções da aorta proximal guarda íntima relação com as condições pré-operatórias dos pacientes. A obtenção de melhores resultados com a operação na fase aguda depende, principalmente, do reconhecimento precoce da dissecção e da utilização de terapêutica clínica adequada durante o período de investigação diagnostica.The surgical experience in the treatment of 72 patients with proximal aortic dissections was analized to identify the determinants of high operative risk. Thirty-seven patients were operated upon in the acute stage and the dissection was

A criança nasceu de parto cesáreo e manteve-se estável com o uso de prostaglandina até o 9º dia de vida, quando foi levada à cirurgia, tendo falecido durante o procedimento por falência biventricular. Este é o primeiro relato da associação desta anomalia com outra malformação cardiovascular intra-uterina, mostrando que este achado nem sempre é associado a uma evolução benigna.Aneurysm of the arterial duct is an infrequent finding, which is very rarely detected prenatally. A case of antenatal diagnosis in a pregnant patient (33 weeks is reported. The fetus presented an aneurysmatic dilation of the arterial duct with uniformly enlarged diameter, inserting into the descending aorta, which was interrupted. The neonate was born by cesarean section and was kept on postaglandins till the 9th day of life, when he was sent to surgery. During the surgical procedure, the baby died as a result of biventricular failure. This is the first report of prenatal association of aneurysm of the ducts anteriosus with other cardiovascular malformations and emphasizes that this finding does not always have a benign course.

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: It has been well known that pediatric allergic rhinitis was associated with poor performance at school due to attention deficit. However, there were no cohort studies for the effect of treatment of allergic rhinitis on attention performance in pediatric population. Thus, the aim of this study was to investigate whether attention performance was improved after treatment in children with allergic rhinitis. METHODS: In this ARCO-Kids (Allergic Rhinitis Cohort Study for Kids, consecutive pediatric patients with rhinitis symptoms underwent a skin prick test and computerized comprehensive attention test. According to the skin prick test results, the children were diagnosed as allergic rhinitis or non- allergic rhinitis. All of the patients were regularly followed up and treated with oral medication or intranasal corticosteroid sprays. The comprehensive attention tests consisted of sustained and divided attention tasks. Each of the tasks was assessed by the attention score which was calculated by the number of omission and commission errors. The comprehension attention test was repeated after 1 year. RESULTS: A total of 797 children with allergic rhinitis and 239 children with non-allergic rhinitis were included. Initially, the attention scores of omission and commission errors on divided attention task were significantly lower in children with allergic rhinitis than in children with non-allergic rhinitis. After 1 year of treatment, children with allergic rhinitis showed improvement in attention: commission error of sustained (95.6±17.0 vs 97.0±16.6 and divided attention task (99.1±15.8 vs 91.8±23.5. Meanwhile, there was no significant difference of attention scores in children with non-allergic rhinitis. CONCLUSIONS: Our study showed that management of allergic rhinitis might be associated with improvement of attention.

    Os cordões de solda apresentam normalmente uma estrutura colunar grosseira, o que diminui as propriedades mecânicas do conjunto soldado. No caso da soldagem com arco submerso, o emprego de alta energia proporciona uma solda com características peculiares como a elevada taxa de fusão e consequentemente grande volume de metal fundido. Foi comprovado que a redução no tamanho e/ou modificações na forma dos cristais obtidos aumenta a tenacidade da junta soldada. Estudos realizados mostraram que a ...

    Full Text Available Este trabalho tem como propósito a apresentação de resultados de uma comparação empírica entre algoritmos, sendo este um dos assuntos mais recorrentes na área de desenvolvimento de algoritmos. Os algoritmos sob estudo são para resolver um problema de otimização em redes, importante pelas suas aplicações potenciais em sistemas de telefonia e transporte, o problema não capacitado de fluxos com custos fixos nos arcos (NCFCF, uma generalização do clássico problema de Steiner em grafos. Para tal, são utilizadas ferramentas estatísticas conhecidas tais como planejamento de experimentos, análise de variância e intervalos de confiança, mas não comumente empregadas neste tipo de estudo. O problema NCFCF é apresentado em uma modelagem de programação matemática inteira mista, baseada na qual os algoritmos sob consideração são apresentados. Uma descrição do planejamento de experimentos adequado a este tipo de estudo é apresentada e é ilustrado o uso da técnica estatística baseado em cuja análise foi possível classificar os algoritmos sob consideração.This paper is concerned about empirical comparisons of algorithms, one of the most recurrent issues in the field of design of algorithms. The problem under consideration is the uncapacitated fixed-charge network flow (UFCNF problem, a generalization of the classic Steiner problem in graphs. The UFCNF is very important in the practical point of view because of its potential applications for telecommunication and transportation system design. In order to compare the algorithms for the UFCNF problem, we make use of well known and well established statistical tools namely the design of experiments, analysis of variance, and confidence intervals, but rarely applied in such studies. A mixed-integer mathematical programming formulation is presented for the UFCNF problem and the design of experiments suitable for the empirical study is detailed. Finally, the statistical analysis

    Full Text Available It is assessed the transfer of chromium, manganese and carbon of different agglomerate fluxes constituted by 18.75 % of alloyed load and 81.25 % of matrix during the SAW process (Submerge Arc Welding. A vitreous basic matrix corresponding to the system SiO2-Al2O3-(CaO+MgO was obtained from minerals by fusion in the electric arc furnace. The current proportions of the alloyed load components (FeCr, FeMn and graphite were carried out using a McLean Anderson experiment design. The corresponding fluxes to each experimental point were obtained by granulation with liquid glass; afterwards, their transfer coefficient for a given regimen of welding was determined. The transfer coefficients were calculated by means of a formula based on the laws of mass conservation and of distribution.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Em técnicas de tratamento como o arco dinâmico, a verificação manual dos cálculos do sistema de planejamento é muito difícil. Assim, a utilização de ferramentas computacionais é de utilidade e torna-se componente essencial do programa de controle de qualidade. MATERIAIS E MÉTODOS: Foi criado um programa computacional de tipo planilha eletrônica para realizar cálculo independente da dose, ou equivalente das unidades monitoras, nos tratamentos realizados pela técnica de arco dinâmico com micromultilâminas. Os valores de dose calculados, por arco e por tratamento completo, foram comparados aos valores obtidos do sistema de planejamento BrainScan v5.3. O programa desenvolvido foi testado com 229 campos de arco dinâmico que representam 42 tratamentos de crânio. Desses, 109 campos foram calculados em reconstrução tridimensional feita a partir das imagens de tomografia dos pacientes, 109 na reconstrução de um objeto simulador de polimetilmetacrilato e 21 na de um objeto simulador sólido equivalente à água. RESULTADOS: A diferença média de doses totais encontrada nos 42 tratamentos (compostos de um ou mais arcos dinâmicos, entre o programa de verificação e o sistema de planejamento, foi de +1,73%, com desvio-padrão de 0,76%. A diferença máxima encontrada foi de 3,32% e a mínima, de -0,20%. No caso dos 229 arcos testados um a um, a diferença média encontrada foi de 1,61%, com desvio-padrão de 1,04%. Os valores máximos e mínimos das diferenças foram de 4,01% e -2,04%, respectivamente. Em 80,35% dos arcos testados, as doses calculadas acham-se na faixa de ± 2,5% de diferença com relação às doses geradas pelo sistema de planejamento. CONCLUSÃO: O programa apresentado é recomendado para a verificação da dose pontual dos planos de tratamento, como parte do procedimento de garantia de qualidade em radioterapia e radiocirurgia estereotáxica quando se utiliza a técnica de arco dinâmico por meio de um

    Full Text Available Los granitoides de arco pre-deformacionales de San Luis son asignados al Cámbrico tardío-Ordovícico temprano, y conforman una serie de extensos afloramientos en el cordón de El Realito y en la zona norte del plutón La Escalerilla. El magmatismo es calcoalcalino de alto K y se aloja en metasedimentitas regionales de grado bajo a medio. Está representado por una secuencia de arco más antigua, constituida por granodioritas, tonalitas y dioritas con Pl+Bt+Ep±Hbl±Kf, metaluminosas, portadoras de enclaves gábricos y monzodioríticos, correlacionable con la secuencia metaluminosa de las sierras de Chepes y Los Llanos (La Rioja. La serie más joven es colisional, monzogranítica, leucocrática y peraluminosa, con Kf+Pl+Ms±Bt±Grt, de características afines a las de los monzogranitos y leucogranitos de dos micas, y una tendencia evolutiva propia de los granitoides peraluminosos félsicos. La serie monzogranítica no parece resultar del fraccionamiento extremo de la secuencia metaluminosa sino que derivaría de la fusión por deshidratación de metapelitas muscovíticas y grauvacas, aunque algunas particularidades geoquímicas de La Escalerilla, entre ellas la abundancia y evolución de las HREE, podrían atribuirse a diferencias litológicas en la zona de proveniencia del fundido. Los fundidos se distinguen claramente, en ambos casos, de aquéllos que dieron origen a las leucogranodioritas sincinemáticas débilmente peraluminosas que afloran en el complejo basamento oriental de la sierra, portadoras de la misma asociación mineral. La deformación famatiniana modificó las fábricas y en menor proporción el quimismo de ambas secuencias, en particular los términos más básicos de la serie de arco, incrementando su peraluminosidad y la dispersión de las tendencias evolutivas.

Com a finalidade de avaliar o grau de vulnerabilidade à erosão costeira, considerando um cenário de elevação do nível do mar para os próximos 50 anos (até 2060, um conjunto de técnicas, consistindo de comparação de fotos aéreas, levantamentos batimétricos e de perfis de praia, modelagem computacional de refração de ondas, caracterização morfodinâmica da praia, análise granulométrica da praia e antepraia e determinação do perfil de equilíbrio, foi aplicado num arco praial localizado entre a cidade de Rio das Ostras e a Ponta do Pai Vitório, no litoral do Estado do Rio de Janeiro. O arco praial é segmentado em dois semiarcos devido à presença de um promontório rochoso e a desembocadura de um rio junto à cidade de Barra de São João, sendo caracterizado por variados níveis de urbanização e distintos graus de exposição às ondas e ambientes morfodinamicamente diferenciados. Os resultados indicaram um desequilíbrio morfodinâmico em grande parte do arco praial e da antepraia entre Rio das Ostras e Barra de São João, justamente onde a urbanização se encontra mais próxima da praia. Uma projeção de recuo da costa para os próximos 50 anos, considerando a atual taxa de erosão e de elevação do nível do mar e mais a elevação do nível do mar prevista em função do incremento da taxa atual por efeito climático indicou recuos potenciais da ordem de 10 a 30m, o que representa um risco potencial para muitas das construções da orla costeira.

Trata-se de pesquisa qualitativa que utilizou grupos focais e entrevistas com os 58 alunos dos cursos. Na dimensão educacional, a qualificação profissional recebida foi insuficiente e não preparou os alunos para enfrentar os desafios do mercado de trabalho. A maioria continua buscando cursos como forma de aumentar as chances de trabalho. Na dimensão econômica, a maior parte dos jovens permaneceu desempregada, e na dimensão psicossocial observou-se referência às questões relativas à subjetividade, à autoestima, melhor comunicação e sociabilidade. Quanto à dimensão político-social, o maior ganho dos alunos foi na compreensão dos seus direitos como cidadãos, mas esta não os levou a atuar nos espaços da sociedade civil, como sindicatos e movimentos sociais.

    Full Text Available Garantizar la calidad en soldadura no es una tarea trivial. Para ello diversas inspecciones de control de calidad son realizadas, en detrimento, los costos y tiempos de producción se elevan. Existen diversos sistemas automatizados de soldadura, éstos son auxiliados por sistemas de control basados en el monitoreo de parámetros de soldadura. Sin embargo son reducidos los sistemas automatizados de monitoreo de calidad que en su mayoría son diseñados para el proceso TIG. Durante la soldadura, el arco eléctrico produce emisiones acústicas y electromagnéticas que se manifiestan como sonido y luminosidad. El objetivo del presente trabajo es mostrar que estas emisiones del arco pueden ser utilizados para el monitoreo de la calidad de la soldadura para el proceso MAG-S. Se realizaron múltiples experimentos de soldadura en posición plana donde se indujeron perturbaciones consistentes presencia de grasa y ausencia de gas de protección. En cada experimento se adquirió simultáneamente señales de tensión y corriente así como señales de emisiones del arco eléctrico. A partir de las emisiones acústicas y electromagnéticas en la banda de ultravioleta, se midió la frecuencia de cortocircuitos. A partir de la emisión electromagnética en la banda infrarroja se midió la estabilidad del proceso de soldadura. Los resultados muestran que las emisiones del arco pueden ser utilizadas para el monitoreo y detección de perturbaciones en soldadura y con el entendimiento de las variaciones de cada emisión podría identificarse determinados tipos de perturbaciones.Ensuring quality in welding is not a trivial task.

    Full Text Available Resumen El acero HSLA (High Strength Low Alloy API 5L X70 es utilizado para fabricación de tuberías para transporte de hidrocarburos. La construcción de tuberías de este material involucra alta cantidad de soldadura, donde los parámetros empleados influyen directamente en las estructuras metalúrgicas y en las propiedades mecánicas del mismo cuando soldado. Así, para estudiar el impacto de los parámetros de soldadura por arco sumergido en la resistencia mecánica y dureza de la Zona Afectada por el Calor (ZAC, fue llevado a cabo un diseño central compuesto que totalizó 17 pruebas. Las variables de entrada fueron corriente, voltaje y velocidad de avance; como variables de salida se consideró resistencia a la tensión y dureza Vickers de la ZAC. Para tal estudio fue utilizado el proceso de soldadura por arco sumergido, pruebas de tensión y pruebas de dureza Vickers. Se utilizó la metodología de superficie de respuesta para el modelado y la optimización fue realizada utilizando algoritmos genéticos y la gráfica de frente de Pareto. Fueron obtenidas 16 combinaciones de parámetros con la optimización, de las cuales fue escogida una para validar los modelos. Con los resultados fue posible establecer modelos matemáticos empíricos satisfactorios para las variables de respuesta.

    Full Text Available La Sierra Norte forma parte de las Sierras Pampeanas de Córdoba por lo cual las principales intrusiones graníticas y el metamorfismo están relacionadas al ciclo orogénico Pampeano. La mayor diferencia con las Sierras de Córdoba es que en Sierra Norte el grado metamórfico es bajo y las intrusiones son superficiales. La Sierra Norte está compuesta por pequeños afloramientos de metasedimentitas, plutones de granodiorita y granito y cuerpos subvolcánicos relacionados a los últimos estadios del batolito. En este trabajo describimos mantos de ignimbritas intercalados en los metaconglomerados de la Formación La Lidia. Las ignimbritas están moderadamente soldadas y está compuestas por aproximadamente 15 % de porfiroclastos de cuarzo, feldespato potásico y plagioclasa totalmente alterada. La pasta consiste de trizas vítreas devitrificadas. La edad U/Pb convencional en circones dio 584+22/-14 Ma y es interpretada como la edad de cristalización. Tanto las ignimbritas como la roca de caja han sido afectadas por un metamorfismo en facies prehnita-pumpellita que alteró la plagioclasa en zoicita, sericita y pumpellita. Las ignimbritas silícicas neoproterozoicas, conjuntamente con el batolito calcoalcalino que le suceden sugiere la existencia de un arco magmático asociado al margen continental activo de Gondwana. Este arco habría estado activo desde el Neoproterozoico hasta el Cámbrico, con una duración de más de 60 Ma. La correlación de las metasedimentitas y volcanitas neoproterozoicas con la Formación Puncoviscana es posible.

    Full Text Available A visão, o sentido predileto do ser humano, e sua grande capacidade de captar, processar e interpretar grandes quantidades de dados de natureza visual tem sido, ao longo dos anos, um grande estímulo para o desenvolvimento de técnicas e de dispositivos tecnológicos que a reproduzam num sistema computacional. Nos processos de soldagem, a visão pode fornecer dados na inspeção e qualidade da junta soldada, no monitoramento de parâmetros, na correção de trajetórias até, por fim, no estudo dos fenômenos envolvidos no processo. Porém, a radiação luminosa emitida pelo arco representa uma barreira para tais estudos baseados na visualização do processo. Uma das formas utilizadas atualmente para se obter a visualização do processo, sem a interferência do arco, consiste em iluminar o processo com o infravermelho próximo e utilizar filtros de interferência (passa-faixa, em torno deste mesmo comprimento de onda, durante a aquisição das imagens. Uma solução para a iluminação infravermelha, de aplicação crescente, envolve o uso de diodos laser de alta potência, com baixo custo e menor complexidade de instalação do que os lasers convencionais. Desta forma, a proposta deste trabalho foi a criação de um sistema de visão dos processos de soldagem a arco, de baixo custo e alta flexibilidade, indo desde a caracterização dos espectros de emissão luminosa do arco, passando pela criação de uma topologia de acionamento para o diodo de alta potência no infravermelho próximo, respeitando suas limitações de uso e maximizando a potência luminosa emitida, criação dos circuitos de controle, escolha dos equipamentos e componentes ópticos e, por fim, projeto e aplicação de um protótipo em processos de soldagem. As limitações do sistema de visão, como um todo, foram encontradas através de sua aplicação com soldagem TIG e MIG/MAG. Nestes ensaios, embora não tenha sido capaz de sobrepor a luz do arco, o sistema

    Full Text Available Resumo Um adequado controle da poça fundida é de fundamental importância para obtenção de soldas em conformidade geométrica com as especificações de projeto. O processo “Plasma-MIG” com Arcos Concêntricos tem sido apresentado como uma alternativa inovadora neste sentido. Desta forma, este trabalho objetivou ampliar os estudos relacionados ao balanço das correntes entre o eletrodo consumível e o arco externo, ao ângulo de inclinação da tocha e à distância entre a tocha e a peça sobre a performance do processo. Soldagens de simples deposição sobre chapa foram executadas na posição plana, visando identificar individualmente o efeito de cada das variáveis sobre a geometria do cordão. A corrente no arco externo foi avaliada em quatro níveis e os efeitos dos demais parâmetros foram avaliados em três níveis. Foi observado que incrementos na corrente do arco externo favorece o aumento da largura, penetração e área fundida e redução do reforço. O aumento da distância da tocha até a peça fez o reforço aumentar e as larguras, penetração e área fundida diminuíram. Quanto ao ângulo de ataque da tocha, a largura e área fundida aumentaram e o reforço e penetração diminuíram quando se muda do modo puxando para empurrando.

    Full Text Available INTRODUÇÃO: O arco e flecha é um esporte estático que requer força e resistência da parte superior do corpo, sendo que a habilidade do arqueiro é definida pela capacidade de atirar a flecha no alvo em um intervalo de tempo com precisão. A contração muscular gerada durante a execução do gesto esportivo propicia o aumento da temperatura corporal, da oxidação de glicose e da sudorese, podendo esta ser potencializada pelas condições climáticas às quais o atleta é exposto. Todos estes fatores alteram a percepção de esforço e a própria geração de força, impondo um estresse negativo à performance. OBJETIVOS: Avaliar e relacionar o estado de hidratação de atletas de arco e flecha com alterações fisiológicas e de força intervenientes no rendimento competitivo. MÉTODOS: Participaram 11 arqueiros em duas competições distintas (indoor e outdoor. Foram mensurados parâmetros relacionados ao estado de hidratação, glicemia, percepção de esforço subjetivo e alteração na força de preensão palmar. RESULTADOS: Os atletas analisados apresentaram alterações significativas nos parâmetros relacionados ao estado hídrico em diferentes dias, provavelmente relacionadas às condições climáticas adversas na competição outdoor (34ºC e 60% URA em relação à competição indoor (22ºC e 90% URA. O mesmo não foi observado para a glicemia. CONCLUSÃO: Este trabalho é o primeiro a comprovar a relação direta entre fatores climáticos e de rendimento em arqueiros de alto nível durante evento competitivo, assim como a evidenciar quais métodos não invasivos seriam os mais indicados para a avaliação do impacto destas alterações.

    Full Text Available Industrialmente, o processo de soldagem a arco é o mais importante na produção e reparo de equipamentos, e sendo um processo especial de fabricação, que não pode ser completamente inspecionado contra imperfeições somente após sua finalização, o monitoramento da produção se faz necessário. Este monitoramento é tecnologicamente requerido pelas normas ISO 3834:2005 e ISO 17662:2005, que dizem que o fabricante deve adotar medidas para garantir a qualidade necessária, além de especificarem os dados que devem ser monitorados e a correta calibração dos sistemas e equipamentos de medida. Este, portanto, pode ser usado para garantir documentação do processo e tomadas de ações corretivas. Existem sistemas que realizam o monitoramento satisfatoriamente, mas o uso de comunicação por cabos e/ou com computador dedicado dificultam suas aplicações industriais. Então, um sistema embarcado, independente, que monitore diferentes sinais do processo de soldagem e que se comunique de forma robusta e flexível a diferentes equipamentos é fundamental para a indústria. Este sistema deve ser de utilização simplificada e apresentar o estado da arte em tecnologia de comunicação. Devido a essa necessidade, foi então projetado e construído um sistema para monitoramento sem fio de sinais em soldagem a arco elétrico, denominado de MoSo Wi-Fi. Três canais de aquisição estão disponíveis (tensão, corrente e velocidade de alimentação de arame, sendo validados pela instrumentação de soldagens TIG CA e MIG/MAG (curto-circuito, goticular e pulsado, demonstrando grande aplicabilidade e robustez a um baixo custo de hardware.Industrially, arc welding process is the most important in equipment production and repair, and being a special manufacturing process, which cannot be completely inspected for flaws only after its completion, production monitoring is necessary. This monitoring is technologically required by ISO 3834:2005 and ISO 17662

In order to reduce the extent of oxidation while keeping a high volume of the oxygen injected, it is required: a to optimize the carbon injection practice, b to increase the carbon concentration of sponge iron, c to operate with soluble carbon in both the metal and the slag beyond a critical level and d to employ a low temperature profile, on average 1,650°C. A method to define the proper amount of carbon in sponge iron which considers their metallization as well as the amount of oxygen injected is proposed. The position of the lance is critical in order to optimize the practice of carbon injection and assure a better residence time of the carbon particles within the furnace.

    Se realizó un estudio a escala industrial en hornos eléctricos de arco (HEA empleando una carga metálica compuesta al 100% de hierro esponja (DRI - Direct Reduction Iron, el cual evalúa el grado de oxidación del sistema metal-escoria. El consumo de energía disminuye con la inyección de oxígeno, sin embargo, el grado de oxidación de la escoria se incrementa. Para reducir el grado de oxidación de la escoria y mantener volúmenes altos de oxígeno inyectado es necesario: a optimizar la práctica de inyección de finos de carbón, b incrementar el porcentaje de carbono del DRI, c hacer que trabaje el HEA por encima de una concentración crítica de carbono disuelto, tanto en el metal como en la escoria, y d emplear temperaturas bajas, del orden de 1.650°C. Se propone un método rápido para definir el carbono del DRI en función de su grado de metalización y de la cantidad de oxígeno a inyectar.

The aim of work was to evaluate the best strategy abrasive wear resistance of the system coating-substrate using the following combinations: (1 homogeneous coatings and (2 coatings depositing simultaneously 140MXC + 530AS and 140MXC + 560AS. The coatings microstructure was characterized using Optical microscopy, Scanning electron microscopy and Laser confocal microscopy. The wear resistance was evaluated through dry sand rubber wheel test (DSRW. We found that the wear resistance depends on the quantity of defects and the mechanical properties like hardness. For example, the softer coatings have the biggest wear rates and the failure mode was characterized by plastic deformation caused by particles indentation, and the other hand the failure mode at the harder materials was grooving. The details and wear mechanism of the coatings produced are described in this investigation.Mediante proyección térmica de arco eléctrico fueron depositados tres materiales comercialmente conocidos como: 140MXC (a base de hierro, wolframio, cromo y niobio, 530AS (acero AISI 1020 y 560AS (acero AISI 420, sobre acero AISI 4340.

    Full Text Available Os cordões de solda apresentam normalmente uma estrutura colunar grosseira, o que diminui as propriedades mecânicas do conjunto soldado. No caso da soldagem com arco submerso, o emprego de alta energia proporciona uma solda com características peculiares como a elevada taxa de fusão e consequentemente grande volume de metal fundido. Foi comprovado que a redução no tamanho e/ou modificações na forma dos cristais obtidos aumenta a tenacidade da junta soldada. Estudos realizados mostraram que a adição de titânio, até certo limite, modificaria a microestrutura obtida bem como o tamanho dos grãos solidificados. Neste trabalho, foi empregada uma liga metálica de Fe-Ti adicionada no momento de soldagem, tipo bead-on-plate, sobre aço estrutural ASTM A 36, com espessura de 10 mm. As adições de titânio variaram entre 0,48 ppm e 29,1 ppm, e a soldagem foi executada com uma energia de 1170 kJ/m. Os resultados mostraram modificações da fase ferrita acicular bem como da ferrita poligonal presentes na solda.The welds usually have a coarse columnar structure, which reduces the mechanical properties of welded assembly. In the case of submerged arc welding, the use of high-energy provides a weld with specific characteristics such as high melting rate and consequently a large volume of molten metal. It was established that the reduction in size and/or changes in the shape of the crystals obtained increases the toughness of the weld. Studies have shown that the addition of titanium to a certain limit, modify the microstructure obtained and the size of the grains solidified. In this study, we used an alloy of Fe-Ti added at the time of welding-type bead-on-plate on structural steel ASTM A 36 with a thickness of 10 mm. The additions of titanium ranged between 0.48 ppm and 29.1 ppm, and welding was performed with an energy of 1170 kJ/m The results showed changes in the phase acicular ferrite and polygonal ferrite present in the weld.

MÉTODOS: Foram selecionadas 36 adolescentes, 16 no grupo de não usuárias e 20 no grupo de usuárias, com idade entre 13 e 20 anos. A postura do pé foi analisada por fotos nas condições descalça e com calçado de salto alto tipo Anabella, previamente padronizado, após terem permanecido com ele por uma hora. Sua análise foi realizada pelo software SAPO. A impressão plantar foi realizada descalça e, a partir dela, calculado o Índice de Chipaux - Smirak para classificação do arco plantar. Para análise estatística, utilizou-se o teste t pareado para verificar igualdade entre lados direito e esquerdo. Foi realizado o teste de aderência Shapiro Wilk e, então, a análise inferencial por meio dos testes não paramétricos de Wilcoxon, o teste de Mann-Whitney e a correlação de Spearman. O nível de significância adotado foi de 0,05. RESULTADOS: Não foi encontrada correlação entre o tipo de arco plantar e a postura do pé das adolescentes estudadas. Porém, o ângulo do retropé se mostrou significativamente diferente, apresentando varo de retropé após a colocação do calçado em ambos os grupos, e o arco plantar do grupo de usuárias apresentou valores menores quanto ao Índice Chipaux - Smirak.

    Full Text Available In this article we have attempted to present a general idea of the use of a weapon that is not usually associated with Praetorian soldiers, showing how soldiers were forced to adapt to new times. We have analyzed epigraphic and literary sources, and we can consider as proven the employment of this weapon in the praetorium throughout the 3rd century AD as a result of adaptation to new battle techniques in the face of old and new enemies.

    A lo largo de este artículo hemos realizado una aproximación al uso de un arma que normalmente no se asocia con los soldados de la guardia pretoriana, mostrando así cómo los nuevos tiempos obligaron a estos soldados a adaptarse. Para ello hemos recurrido tanto a las fuentes clásicas como a la epigrafía. Así podemos aseverar sin duda el empleo de esta arma en el pretorio durante el siglo III d. C., como consecuencia de los nuevos modos de combate ante enemigos nuevos y viejos.

    Full Text Available This paper presents the design and the execution of a structural strengthening induced by the partial deconstruction of the naves that contain the East bus garage of the Metropolitan Transport of Barcelona. The structure of the roof of the naves consisted of tied precast concrete arches spanning 38 m. The initial state of the structural system of the building and its specific conditions are described to establish the criteria to be considered in the design and execution process of the strengthening. Then, the design and execution of the strengthening needed to guarantee the stability of the roof structure and the main aspects related to the construction process are described. This intervention had a temporary character because the whole building should be deconstructed after a year term. So that, a strengthening that took advantage of the actual capacity of the existing structure was designed. It consisted of adding steel members which, interacting with the existing structure, configured a new structural system against horizontal actions. It was not necessary to strengthen any existing members neither to build new foundation elements.El presente artículo tiene por objeto la descripción del diseño y la ejecución de un refuerzo estructural motivado por la deconstrucción parcial de las naves que albergaban las cocheras de Levante de los Transportes Metropolitanos de Barcelona.

    procedimiento experimental para medir el campo de temperaturas en la zona cercana al cordón de soldadura de un acero inoxidable de espesor inferior a 3 mm. Este procedimiento experimental se puede utilizar para otros tipos de metales y aleaciones y para otros procedimientos de soldadura por arco eléctrico como elMIG/MAG, SMAWy FCAW. Los datos obtenidos con estos ensayos se han utilizado para validar el cálculo del campo de temperaturas mediante la aplicación numérica de diferencias finitas. Con estos experimentos se ha realizado el ajuste del modelo matemático, y las diferencias que existen entre las curvas experimentales y teóricas son debidas a las pérdidas de calor por convección y radiación, que no se han estimado en el modelo de simulación. Con este sencillo modelo el proyectista podrá calcular los ciclos térmicos del proceso y predecir el campo de temperaturas en las proximidades del cordón.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Estudar a viabilidade técnica e resultados imediatos da modificação técnica proposta por Caliani et al. para correção da coarctação aórtica com hipoplasia do arco aórtico. MÉTODOS: Entre janeiro de 2005 e julho de 2006, nove neonatos com coarctação aórtica e hipoplasia do arco aórtico foram submetidos a uma nova abordagem cirúrgica para correção do defeito. A definição de hipoplasia do arco aórtico seguiu os critérios de Moulaert, segundo os quais o arco aórtico é considerado hipoplásico quando seu diâmetro atinge 50% do diâmetro da aorta ascendente. Nesta série, foram selecionados apenas pacientes com hipoplasia proximal e distal do arco aórtico. Várias técnicas foram propostas anteriormente, mas gradientes residuais importantes foram observados, assim como há o inconveniente da ligadura definitiva da artéria subclávia esquerda. A modificação técnica consiste em: toracotomia póstero-lateral esquerda, ampla mobilização da aorta descendente, com ligadura dos dois primeiros ramos intercostais, transecção da artéria subclávia esquerda em sua base, ressecção ampla de toda zona hipoplásica e adjacências do ducto arterioso, anastomose término-terminal entre o arco aórtico e aorta descendente com fio de PDS 7-0 e reimplante da artéria subclávia sobre a artéria carótida esquerda com anastomose látero-terminal. RESULTADOS: Não houve óbito per-operatório ou tardio, o gradiente residual médio foi de 5 mmHg. Até o presente, não observamos nenhum caso de recoarctação ou de lesão neurológica medular. CONCLUSÃO: A despeito do reduzido número de casos e do seguimento curto, esta modificação técnica pode representar uma excelente opção para tratamento deste complexo grupo de pacientes.OBJECTIVES: To study technical feasibility and early results of the technical modification suggested by Caliani et al. for correction of aortic coarctation and aortic arc.

    Full Text Available INTRODUÇÃO: A despeito dos avanços da cirurgia cardiovascular, das técnicas de circulação extracorpórea e dos métodos de proteção cerebral, a mortalidade nas operações de substituição ou reparo do arco aórtico permanece elevada. As alterações decorrentes da hipotermia profunda e as lesões neurológicas ainda são a maior causa de morbi-mortalidade. OBJETIVO: Demonstrar um conjunto de técnicas e táticas cirúrgicas que permite realizar a substituição do arco aórtico sem a necessidade de hipotermia e parada circulatória total e apresentar os resultados alcançados em um grupo de 10 pacientes. CASUÍSTICA E MÉTODOS: Dez pacientes do sexo masculino, com idade média de 48,7 anos, foram submetidos a substituição do arco aórtico, utilizando-se hipotermia moderada, canulação arterial em artéria subclávia direita e femoral esquerda, perfusão cerebral seletiva pela artéria subclávia e confecção da anastomose dos vasos arco no primeiro tempo. RESULTADOS: O tempo médio de perfusão cerebral seletiva foi de 14,1 minutos, de isquemia miocárdica 39,6 minutos e de circulação extracorpórea 98,9 minutos. A temperatura esofágica média foi de 26,6º C (24º C a 30º C. O tempo médio de internação foi de 18,4 dias (8 a 40. Não ocorreram óbitos imediatos ou tardios. Dois pacientes apresentaram confusão mental temporária e um apresentou hemiparesia que foi revertida. CONCLUSÕES: A combinação de técnicas e táticas empregadas permitiu uma efetiva correção das lesões em um campo cirúrgico amplo e seco. Ofereceu uma excelente proteção cerebral sem a necessidade de hipotermia profunda o que diminuiu substancialmente as complicações pós-operatórias.INTRODUCTION: Despite the development in cardiovascular techniques such as in cardiopulmonary bypass and cerebral protection the mortality in the correlations of the diseases of the aortic arch remains high.

    Full Text Available INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study was to compare the frictional forces between 0.014-in NiTi wires (Aditek with 4 mm horizontal deflection and brackets with different archwire ligation systems. METHODS: Four types of self-ligating brackets (Damon MX, Easy Clip, Smart Clip and In-Ovation, a triple bracket (Synergy and a twin bracket with 8-shaped ligature (Tecnident were tested. Twin brackets with conventional elastomeric ligatures (Morelli were used as control group. Tests were repeated 10 times for each bracket/archwire combination. Frictional forces were measured in an Instron universal tensile machine at 3 mm/minute speed and a total displacement of 6 mm. Statistical analysis comprised ANOVA and Dunnett's multiple comparison post hoc test. RESULTS: Deflection-induced frictional (DIF forces increased in the following order: Synergy, Damon, 8-shaped Ligature, Easy Clip, In-Ovation, Smart-Clip and conventional ligatures. The differences among groups were significant, with the exception of the 8-shaped ligature groups which was equal to the Damon and Easy Clip groups. CONCLUSIONS: Compared to conventional ligatures, all ligation systems tested reduced frictional forces. However, such reduction varied according to the ligation system employed.OBJETIVO: o objetivo desse trabalho foi comparar as forças de atrito entre fios NiTi 0,014" (Aditek com deformações horizontais de 4mm, e braquetes com diferentes sistemas de ligação dos arcos.

Sus composiciones abarcan dacitas, andesitas y andesitas basálticas y son interpretados como los representantes intermedios y básicos de una serie calcoalcalina cuyo extremo ácido se encontraría en los ya conocidos Pórfiros riodacíticos de Oncán aflorantes en el borde occidental del área. Son finamente porfíricos y se caracterizan por una intensa alteración de los componentes máficos y pastas, resultante de una importante actividad deutérica. Intruyen a los granitoides de las Formaciones Ojo de Agua y Ambargasta, ambos del Cámbrico medio a superior según determinaciones isotópicas. Sobre la base de edades K/Ar preexistentes, a las que se añaden dos nuevos valores, sumadas a observaciones de campo, se asignan los diques a un mismo ciclo magmático plutónico-volcánico, confirmando la vinculación ya aceptada en investigaciones anteriores para las volcanitas ácidas. Su signatura geoquímica apoya la existencia de un arco previamente postulado por otros autores y corresponden a una ubicación de arco a retroarco. Se habría desarrollado sobre corteza continental.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: o presente estudo analisou a distribuição de tensões, em modelo fotoelástico, gerada por arco base de intrusão de incisivos inferiores. Compararam-se as tensões entre os terços radiculares de cada incisivo e, ainda, verificou-se a existência de diferenças de concentrações de tensões entre incisivos. MÉTODOS: foram confeccionados 15 arcos base de intrusão e a força de ativação foi mensurada em 50gf na região da linha média. O modelo fotoelástico foi observado em polariscópio circular, na configuração de campo escuro, e fotografado. As fotografias frontais foram analisadas e as ordens de franjas em cada região registradas. A análise de Kappa ponderado identificou a repetibilidade do método. A comparação entre as tensões foi realizada pelo teste de Kruskal-Wallis complementado com teste de Dunn com nível alfa de 5%. RESULTADOS E CONCLUSÕES: os resultados identificaram que as maiores magnitudes de tensões foram observadas nas regiões cervicais. Ao se comparar as ordens de franjas entre os dentes, as maiores magnitudes de tensões foram observadas nos incisivos centrais. Portanto, a região cervical pode estar mais sujeita a reabsorções, assim como os incisivos centrais, por concentrarem maiores tensões.OBJECTIVE: The present study is concerned with stress distribution in a photoelastic model, caused by lower incisor intrusion using utility arch.

    Full Text Available La Sierra Norte forma parte de las Sierras Pampeanas de Córdoba por lo cual las principales intrusiones graníticas y el metamorfismo están relacionadas al ciclo orogénico Pampeano. La mayor diferencia con las Sierras de Córdoba es que en Sierra Norte el grado metamórfico es bajo y las intrusiones son superficiales. La Sierra Norte está compuesta por pequeños afloramientos de metasedimentitas, plutones de granodiorita y granito y cuerpos subvolcánicos relacionados a los últimos estadios del batolito. En este trabajo describimos mantos de ignimbritas intercalados en los metaconglomerados de la Formación La Lidia. Las ignimbritas están moderadamente soldadas y está compuestas por aproximadamente 15 % de porfiroclastos de cuarzo, feldespato potásico y plagioclasa totalmente alterada. La pasta consiste de trizas vítreas devitrificadas. La edad U/Pb convencional en circones dio 584+22/-14 Ma y es interpretada como la edad de cristalización. Tanto las ignimbritas como la roca de caja han sido afectadas por un metamorfismo en facies prehnita-pumpellita que alteró la plagioclasa en zoicita, sericita y pumpellita. Las ignimbritas silícicas neoproterozoicas, conjuntamente con el batolito calcoalcalino que le suceden sugiere la existencia de un arco magmático asociado al margen continental activo de Gondwana. Este arco habría estado activo desde el Neoproterozoico hasta el Cámbrico, con una duración de más de 60 Ma. La correlación de las metasedimentitas y volcanitas neoproterozoicas con la Formación Puncoviscana es posible.The Sierra Norte belongs to the Sierras Pampeanas of Córdoba and like in the Sierras de Córdoba the main granitic intrusions, metamorphism and deformation are related to the Pampean orogenic cycle. The most important difference with Sierras de Córdoba is that Sierra Norte shows a weaker deformation and a lower grade metamorphism.

    Full Text Available La presente revisión se focaliza en el efecto modulatorio de la leptina sobre la actividad del sistema glucosensor y la expresión de neuropéptidos orexigénicosy anorexigénicos involucrados en la regulación de la ingesta de alimento en trucha arco iris. De manera similar al efecto que produce en mamíferos, la administración ICV de leptina induce cambios dosis dependiente en los parámetros relacionados con la glucosensibilidad en hipotálamo y cerebro posterior (incrementos del potencial glucolítico y glucogenogénico en coordinación con incrementos de la actividad de glucoquinasa y de los niveles de ARNm de genes involucrados en la respuesta glucosensora compatible con lo observado en peces bajo condiciones de hiperglucemia, una situación que produce anorexia. La comprensión de la especificidad de la acción de la leptina en peces es menos clara que en mamíferos. Existen evidencias que sugieren que la acción central de la leptina sobre el sistema glucosensor está relacionada con la activación de la vía JAK/STAT e IRS-PI3K. Por otro lado, el tratamiento con leptina ICV incrementa el potencial glucogenolítico en hígado, el cual podría estar asociado con incrementos de la actividad simpática, y en hipotálamo induce decrecimiento de los niveles de ARNm de NPY. Por tanto, considerando la acción orexigénica del NPY en peces, pareciera que el efecto anoréctico de la leptina puede estar mediado por la reducción de la expresión de NPY en el hipotálamo y que esos cambios pueden estar relacionados con la activación del sistema glucosensor.

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: Femoral artery cannulation has been used as the preferred option in operations to correct ascending aorta and aortic arch aneurysms and dissections. The axillary artery is an alternative site for cannulation. We have used arterial inflow via the common carotid artery in nine patients. METHOD: Nine patients were operated on with ages ranging from 46 to 80 years (mean 62.1 ± 12.54, six were male. Four patients had true aneurysms, three had aortic dissections and two a combination of dissections and true aneurysms. Five patients had undergone previous cardiovascular operations. Deep hypothermia with circulation arrest was used in two patients and in seven, antegrade cerebral perfusion was used. RESULTS: All nine patients awoke from the operation without cerebral damage. Two patients died, one on the 7th postoperative day due to respiratory failure and the other one on the third postoperative day due to a rupture of a thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm. CONCLUSION: The carotid artery can be a safe alternative of arterial inflow in operations to correct ascending aorta and aortic arch diseases. This strategy allows antegrade cerebral perfusion during the operation even during arch resection and reconstruction.OBJETIVO: A canulação da artéria femoral tem sido a via mais comum para o retorno arterial, nas operações para correção de aneurismas ou dissecções da aorta ascendente e ou arco aórtico.

Diets were fed to triplicate groups of juveniles (4.12 ± 0.7 g, mean + standard deviation for a period of 50 days, and growth performance, P and N excretion and protein digestibility were determined at the end of this period. Data were analyzed with one-way ANOVA. The results showed that fish growth decreased when 100% of substitution was used, but diet with 75% of soybean meal did not affect growth. In addition, excretion values of P and N at this level of substitution were lowerthan those of the fish fed the control diets. The data suggest that diet with 75% soybean meal and 25% fishmeal might be used under practical conditions, as the growth performance observed on the juveniles fed such diet was similarto those offish fed the commercial diet and the nutrient loading was reduced.Se realizó una prueba de alimentación para evaluar la inclusión de altos niveles de harina de soya como sustituto de la harina de pescado en dietas para juveniles de trucha arco iris y determinar la excreción de fósforo y nitrógeno.

O presente trabalho avalia a correlação entre as características morfológicas sagitais da face (Padrão e da oclusão (Classe no estágio de dentadura decídua. METODOLOGIA: A amostra foi composta por 2009 crianças, entre 03 e 06 anos de idade, no período de dentadura decídua completa, de 20 pré-escolas do Município de Bauru - SP. Os resultados demonstraram uma correlação estreita entre o Padrão facial e a Classe. No Padrão I predominou a Classe I (62,99%, seguida pela Classe II (35,82% e Classe III (1,18%. No Padrão II, a Classe II foi predominante (81,35% acompanhada de uma incidência baixa de Classe I (18,64%. No Padrão III, a Classe III estava presente em 50% das crianças, seguida pela Classe I, em 48,64%, e Classe II, em 1,35%. RESULTADOS: A expectativa se comprovou. Há uma tendência da Classe acompanhar o Padrão, desde o estágio de dentadura decídua. Isso foi mais explícito no Padrão II. Os resultados também esclarecem que a oclusão guarda alguma independência em relação ao Padrão. CONCLUSÃO: A maior heterogeneidade na distribuição das Classes ficou para os Padrões I e III.

    Full Text Available INTRODUÇÃO: em portadores de malformações labiopalatais, a boa conformação do arco superior constitui um dos principais requisitos para a obtenção de uma oclusão adequada e para o aperfeiçoamento estético e funcional. Para tanto, a expansão ortopédica da maxila é frequentemente necessária, uma vez que é alta a incidência de colapso dos segmentos. OBJETIVOS: analisar, por meio de modelos de gesso, as dimensões do arco superior de 15 portadores de fissura transforame incisivo unilateral, com deficiências transversal e anteroposterior da maxila, submetidos à expansão com dois diferentes protocolos de ativação. MÉTODOS: um grupo foi submetido à Expansão Rápida da Maxila (ERM com protocolo de ativação convencional (Grupo 1, enquanto no outro grupo foi utilizado o protocolo de ativação preconizado por Liou e Tsai em 2005, com expansões e contrações alternadas (Grupo 2, sendo ambos submetidos posteriormente à protração maxilar com máscara de tração reversa. Os modelos foram obtidos em dois momentos: antes da cimentação do disjuntor do tipo Haas modificado (T1 e após 24 semanas de tratamento (T2.

El magmatismo es calcoalcalino de alto K y se aloja en metasedimentitas regionales de grado bajo a medio. Está representado por una secuencia de arco más antigua, constituida por granodioritas, tonalitas y dioritas con Pl+Bt+Ep±Hbl±Kf, metaluminosas, portadoras de enclaves gábricos y monzodioríticos, correlacionable con la secuencia metaluminosa de las sierras de Chepes y Los Llanos (La Rioja. La serie más joven es colisional, monzogranítica, leucocrática y peraluminosa, con Kf+Pl+Ms±Bt±Grt, de características afines a las de los monzogranitos y leucogranitos de dos micas, y una tendencia evolutiva propia de los granitoides peraluminosos félsicos. La serie monzogranítica no parece resultar del fraccionamiento extremo de la secuencia metaluminosa sino que derivaría de la fusión por deshidratación de metapelitas muscovíticas y grauvacas, aunque algunas particularidades geoquímicas de La Escalerilla, entre ellas la abundancia y evolución de las HREE, podrían atribuirse a diferencias litológicas en la zona de proveniencia del fundido. Los fundidos se distinguen claramente, en ambos casos, de aquéllos que dieron origen a las leucogranodioritas sincinemáticas débilmente peraluminosas que afloran en el complejo basamento oriental de la sierra, portadoras de la misma asociación mineral. La deformación famatiniana modificó las fábricas y en menor proporción el quimismo de ambas secuencias, en particular los términos más básicos de la serie de arco, incrementando su peraluminosidad y la dispersión de las tendencias evolutivas.The pre-deformational Late Cambrian to Early Ordovician arc-magmatism of the Sierra de San Luis forms several outcrops of which Cordón de El Realito and La

    Full Text Available ASTM A743-CA6NM é um aço inoxidável martensítico muito utilizado na fabricação de turbinas hidráulicas devido a sua elevada tenacidade, entretanto apresenta restrições com relação à regiões recuperadas por soldagem. Diferentes técnicas de deposição tem sido aplicadas com o intuito de reduzir ou eliminar a tensão residual. A deposição de revestimentos resistentes a cavitação é outra forma importante de aumentar a vida útil destes componentes. O objetivo deste trabalho é avaliar a influência do tipo e intensidade de corrente de refusão por plasma na microestrutura, composição química e microdureza de um revestimento Fe-Mn-Cr-Si resistente a cavitação depositado por aspersão térmica arco elétrico sobre aço ASTMA743-CA6NM. Observou-se que a adoção de menores valores de corrente média, assim como a utilização de corrente pulsada reduziram a formação de ferrita δ e a espessura final da ZTA, possibilitando a formação do revestimento com menores alterações na microestrutura do metal base. Verificou-se que a microestrutura e microdureza dos revestimentos refundidos não se mostraram muito sensível a variações na diluição do metal base. A utilização de corrente contínua promoveu um alinhamento da estrutura dendrítica no sentido da movimentação da tocha, entretanto este comportamento não foi observado em revestimentos refundidos com corrente pulsada.ASTM A743-CA6NM martensitic stainless steel have been used in hydraulic turbines manufacturing, but show some restrictions in welded recovered areas.

    The soil vulnerability determines the sensitivity of the soil after an accidental radioactive contamination due to Cs-137 and Sr-90. The Departamento de Impacto Ambiental de la Energia of CIEMAT is carrying out an assessment of the radiological vulnerability of the different Spanish soils found on the Iberian Peninsula. This requires the knowledge of the soil properties for the various types of existing soils. In order to achieve this aim, a bibliographical compilation of soil profiles has been made to characterize the different soil types and create a database of their properties. Depending on the year of publication and the type of documentary source, the information compiled from the available bibliography is very heterogeneous. Therefore, an important effort has been made to normalize and process the information prior to its incorporation to the database. This volume presents the criteria applied to normalize and process the data as the soil properties of the various soil types belonging to the Comunidad Autonoma de Madrid. (Author) 39 refs.

Microorganisms, which showed higher capacity to solubilized coal, were incubated in the presence of coal (hard coal, subbituminous coal and lignite) at the optimal conditions to get coal liquefaction/solubilization. The resultant products were analysed by IR and UV/visible spectrometry. No major differences among the original coal, solubilized/liquefied coal and residual coal were detected. However, an increase in metallic carboxylate and a decrease in OH'- carboxylic groups were observed in the liquefied lignite. Humic acids derived from original lignite residual lignite and liquefied/solubilized lignite by microorganisms were analysed. Several differences were observed in the humic acids extracted from the liquefied lignite, such as an increase in the total acidity and in the proportion of the phenolic groups. Differences on the humic acid molecular weight were observed too. Several fungal and bacterial strains were able to grow using humic acids as sole carbon source. Microorganisms growing in humic acid were observed by Scanning Electron Microscopy. Besides, the coal solubilization capacity of several fungal strains (M2, m$ and AGI) growing in different culture media was assayed. In order to get some insight into the mechanisms of the liquefaction/solubilization of Spanish coals (hard coal, subbituminous coal and lignite) by these microorganisms, some features in the culture supernatants were studied: pH values; extracellular specific proteins; enzyme activities possibly related with coal solubilization and the presence of oxalate. M2 and M4 fungal strains grown in the presence of coal produced some specific extracellular proteins which could participate in coal solubilization. (Author)

    Full Text Available A produção de soja no Brasil alcançou destaque na última década. Atualmente, o país configura-se como maior exportador e segundo maior produtor de soja no mundo. Porém, a expansão desse cultivo está sendo associada diretamente ao desmatamento da Floresta Amazônica. Sua cultura iniciou-se no sul do país e avançou para a região central, sobre o bioma do cerrado, expandindo-se, gradativamente, ao norte do Brasil, principalmente por meio de latifúndios monocultores e controlados por grandes empresas transnacionais. A área de avanço agrícola ao norte tem substituído o bioma local: a Floresta Amazônica, o que tem preocupado entidades públicas e privadas, em face do desmatamento exagerado e perda da biodiversidade. Este estudo analisa o avanço da cultura da soja no norte do estado de Mato Grosso, no período entre 1984 e 2009, por meio da interpretação de imagens de satélite, e sua relação com o desmatamento da Floresta Amazônica. Como resultado, apresentam-se três mapas de uso do solo da área de estudo. A análise dos mapas permitiu verificar que o desmatamento recente da floresta está sendo promovido pela atividade pecuária, e os solos descampados e erodidos do pasto têm sido usados para a cultura de soja. Ou seja, na área analisada, a soja estabelece-se em áreas antes degradadas pelo gado, e não diretamente sobre as áreas de floresta desmatada.La producción de soja alcanzo gran destaque en la última década en Brasil. Actualmente, el país es el mayor exportador y el segundo mayor productor del mundo. Entretanto, la expansión de este cultivo es asociado directamente con el desmate de la Floresta Amazónica. Su cultura se inició en el sur del país y avanzó para la región central, sobre el bioma del cerrado, y se expande gradualmente, al norte del Brasil, principalmente a través de latifundios mono-cultores controlados por grandes empresas transnacionales. El avance agrícola al norte ha substituido el bioma local: La Floresta Amazónica, lo que preocupa las entidades públicas y privadas, frente al desmate exagerado y la pérdida de la biodiversidad. Esta investigación analiza el avance del cultivo de soja al norte del estado de Mato Grosso, en el período 1984-2009, a través de la interpretación de imágenes de satélite, y su relación con el desmate de la Floresta Amazónica. Como resultado, se presentan tres mapas de uso del suelo del área de estudio. El análisis de los mapas permiten verificar que el desmate reciente de la floresta ha sido promovido por la actividad pecuaria, y que los suelos descampados y erosionados han sido utilizados como cultivo de soja, que se establece en áreas antes degradadas por el ganado y no directamente sobre las áreas de floresta desmatada.Brazil is the largest exporter and second largest producer of soybeans in the world. However, the increase in production has been directly associated to the deforestation of the Amazon Rainforest. This culture began in the South and moved toward the central region of the country, spreading gradually to its northern part. This growth was mainly based on monoculture properties controlled by large transnational corporations, and has replaced the local biome: the Amazon rainforest. Such fact has worried both public and private entities, since there has been an excessive deforestation and biodiversity loss. This study analyses the advance of soybean in the North of the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso, in the period 1984-2009, by means of satellite image interpretation. As a result, presents three maps of land use development in the area of study. It is noticed that the recent deforestation was due to the livestock activities and, afterwards, the eroded soil from the open fields and pastures were recovered with the soybean crops. In other words, in the analyzed area, soy plantations were not directly established over the deforested areas, but rather over areas previously degraded by livestock.

    Full Text Available Em virtude do Processo de Soldagem Plasma com Alimentação de Pó ter similaridades com o Processo de Soldagem Plasma com Alimentação de Arame, foi realizado um estudo comparativo entre ambos os processos utilizando-se a liga a base de cobalto comercialmente conhecida como Stellite 6, como material de adição na forma de pó e arame. A pesquisa foi realizada com a expectativa de ser aplicada nas operações de revestimentos de superfícies, em especial em pás de turbinas hidráulicas desgastadas por cavitação. A seleção do material de adição a ser empregado depende da natureza do mecanismo de desgaste encontrado. No Labsolda, a liga Stellite 6 vem sendo uma das mais utilizadas, por apresentar uma excelente resistência ao desgaste erosivo por cavitação. Foi avaliada a influência da vazão de gás de plasma a partir dos valores de diluição, dimensões do cordão, dureza e microestrutura. O Processo de Soldagem Plasma com Alimentação de Pó foi o que produziu o melhor acabamento superficial, menor diluição, melhor molhamento e maior largura. Com isto abre-se uma nova perspectiva para revestimentos metálicos e neste contexto se insere a recuperação por soldagem de partes erodidas de turbinas hidráulicas.The Plasma powder transferred arc welding process, which uses feed stock in the powder form, has similarities with Plasma wire transferred arc welding. This work describes a comparative study of the two processes using a Cobalt-based alloy commercially known as Stellite 6. This Co-based alloy is recognized for its superior cavitation erosion resistance. The aim of this work is to investigate the potential of PTA coatings for the protection and refurbishiment hydraulic turbine blades. Coatings were evaluated for the influence of Plasma gas flow rate on coating dilution, geometry, hardness and microstructure. Coatings processed with the atomized Stellite 6 powder feestock showed a superior surface quality, lower dilution, better wettability and wider tracks. This study provided a novel information about the refurbishing worn hydraulic turbines blades, leading to a longer service life.

    The solar corona is highly organized by the magnetic field. Because of their temperature and density, magnetic loops are directly observable in active regions (ARs) in the extreme ultraviolet (EUV) and soft X-ray images. The observational determination of the three-dimensional (3D) distribution of basic physical parameters (electronic density and temperature, and magnetic field) is a fundamental constraint of coronal heating models. In this work we develop a technique of differential emission measure (DEM) analysis and we apply it an EUV loop identified in the images of the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) on board the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). The DEM is determined after background subtraction and the electronic density and temperature in the loop are estimated from its moments. The 3D structure of the magnetic field in the loop and its intensity are modeled using linear force free field extrapolations based on AR magnetograms. In this work we show preliminary results of this technique.

    A methodology is presented to assess the radiological vulnerability of soils, based exclusively on their pedagogical properties. The radiological vulnerability defined as the potential capacity of soils to fix or transfer deposited radiocaesium and radiostrontium to plants, is represented in terms of vulnerability indexes. Two pathways are considered, the external irradiation and their transfer through the food chain, where the top horizon and a critical depth of 60 cm is taken into account, respectively, Partial vulnerability indexes are considered for each pathway, which allows a qualitative prediction of the behaviour of the contaminants in soils Global indexes have been obtained as the sum of the partial indexes. The methodology has been applied and validated using a data base consisting of more than 2000 soil profiles selected from all over Spain. This included a pedagogical characterisation and normalisation of the different soil profiles. Results have been obtained for individual soil profiles and with the aid of a GIS, the distribution of the partial and global indexes have been presented for the most representative soil types.

    This paper examines the mutual implications between the climate change problem and the actual energy-at-a-crossroads situation of the unsustainable world energy model. The implications for the Spanish case are studied as a case example. The paper provides a brief review of the scientific evidence on climate change, analyzes the causes of the present energy dilemma and characterizes the problem to be addressed. The principal challenge for the future climate regime is to identify the nature and level of commitment that will provide sufficient incentives for all countries, with such a diversity of interests. The paper also exposes the most plausible framework for the future climate regime, the basic components of such a regime, the role to be played by the major stake holders and some guidelines for future negotiations.

    The study aims to evaluate and compare retrospective planning for prostate cancer using the volumetric modulated arc therapy technique (RapidArc™ - Varian) with one or two arcs. Ten cases of patients with prostate cancer present were replanning with the volume of PTV's between 296.4 cm{sup 3} and 149.6 cm{sup 3} with prescribed dose of 78 Gy. A planning default was created for each case seeking the best result of the distribution dose in the PTV and to minimize the dose to organs at risk, and from this, creates two copies for optimization of one and two arcs. Comparisons of maximum and minimum dose, index of conformity, homogeneity and gradient dose were evaluated in the PTV, the time of the radiation beam and the number of monitor units. The organ at risk were evaluated according to the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group RTOG 0415 and compared in both optimizations. In terms of dosimetric values to organs at risk and PTV were similar, but there was an increase in the number of monitors units and the time of the radiation beam when using the technique with two arcs. Finally the results have showed that use a volumetric modulated arc therapy optimization for prostate cancer it is reaches similar dosimetric goals can be an effective option for radiotherapy department of developing countries with large number of patients.

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Monfort, E.; Mezquita, A.; Vaquer, E.; Mallol, G.; Gabaldon-Estevan, D.

    2014-10-01

    This paper analyses how energy consumption and energy efficiency evolved in the Spanish ceramic tile industry in the 20th century and explores the emerging possibilities in the 21st century. In the last century, the tile industry undertook three radical transitions by switching from traditional biomass fuels to liquid hydrocarbon fuels (fuel oil and gas oil), and subsequently to gas fuels, mainly involving natural gas. Although it is difficult to obtain the information that enable the real energy efficiency in manufacturing plants to be reliably evaluated, the available data indicate that a high degree of efficiency has been achieved with current manufacturing technologies. Consequently, significant developments in this sense are not expected, even though efforts are still being made to reduce energy consumption in the production process. However, environmental regulations and impacts, and the emerging new energy sources based on agricultural biomass could open up new avenues for energy supply in the Spanish ceramic tile cluster.

    Possible consequences of a nuclear accident must have radioactive contamination in the medium and long-term freshwater aquatic systems. Faced with this problem, it is essential to have a realistic assessment of the radiological impact, ecological, social and economic potential management strategies, to take the best decisions rationally. MOIRA is a system of decision support developed in the course of the European Framework Programmes with participation of the UPM, which has been improved and adapted to Spanish nuclear sites in recent years in the context ISIDRO Project, sponsored by the Council Nuclear, with the participation of CIEMAT and UPM. The paper focuses on these advances, primarily related to complex hydraulic systems such as rivers Tajo, Ebro and Jucar, which are located several Spanish plants.

  18. The Spanish system of Physical Security of the facilities, activities and radioactive nuclear fuels; El sistema Espanol de Seguridad Fisica de las instalaciones, actividades y materiales nucleares radiactivos

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Gil, E.; Gutierrez, M.

    2008-07-01

    The use of nuclear and radioactive materials has, from the very beginning, been characterized by the implementation of significant safety measures that are developed in parallel to the technology itself. The two facets of nuclear safety technological and physical have evolved at the same time as the technological advances, and also in terms of the social environment and awareness. Thus, the TMI and Chernobyl accidents were an important incentive for the evolution of technological safety, and the new context of the need for overall safety is providing the impetus for the evolution of physical security around the world. In Spain this impetus has materialized in the design and implementation of a physical security system for nuclear and radioactive installations, activities and materials, and putting it into practice has required the joint efforts of the public authorities and the private sector. The system is developed on the basis of three main components: installation protection, crime prevention, and preparation of the response to emergency situations caused by criminals acts. It is complemented by a series of horizontal actions aimed at improving institutional coordination, international collaboration, training of the agents involved in its implementation, and updating of the applicable regulatory framework.

    The amendment of Article 542 and 543 on the hot asphalt mixtures included in the Spanish Technical specifications for Road Construction (PG-3), by Circular Order 24/2008, introduced a new series of modification to adapt Spanish regulations to European standards series EN 13108. Among the various amendments, new tests methods and design criteria are considered, as UNE-EN 12697-12 for assessing the water sensitivity on compacted specimens, which is mandatory for every kind of bituminous mixture. In this paper, firstly a comparison between the European method and the old Spanish method described in the NLT-162 is made, explaining the experimental conditions selected. The results of an interlaboratory study or Round Robin Test conducted in ten Spanish laboratories are subsequently described and analyzed, in order to allow each laboratory to assess its technical performance, and also to determine quantitatively the precision of the new method in terms of repeatability and reproducibility.

    The modification of traditional policies in nuclear business of Spanish Electrical Utilities, to meet new regulations is presented in this paper. It would be remarkable the influence of a new environment of significant economical transformation, which show us utilities affected by reorganization processes to face market demands. We will pay special attention to those activities involved in nuclear fuel management. Focusing in the field of Enriched Uranium supply, ENUSA, a state owned company, according to legal framework, played the role of sole supplier. The liberalization of primary energy sources was the turning point that triggered a process of changes. Now, the utilities rule the overall strategy and, not surprisingly they do definitively it is not. The new regulations tend to create conditions for a truly free market. So, competitiveness has become the magic word for almost all electricity producers. But in our case, the first question to be answered should be if free market does really mean a threat for us, or if it is just and external reference that puts no real pressure in our future plans. Lets remember that nuclear fuel cost in Spain is much lower than any other fuel cost. The working model we have defined is oriented to get benefit from market opportunities, improve flexibility and avoiding uncertainties in planning fuel cost strategy. (Author)

    This technical report presents an overview of the social perception and vision of a sample of Spanish stake holders on hydrogen technologies. The study is based on the implementation of a survey, combining both quantitative and qualitative data. An ad hoc electronic survey was design to collect views and perceptions on several key factors regarding this innovative energy alternative. The group of experts participating (N=130) in the study, comes mainly from research centers, universities and private companies. The survey addresses three major themes: expert views, social acceptability, and contextual factors of hydrogen technologies. The aim is to capture both the current and the future scene as viewed by the experts on hydrogen technologies, identifying key factors in terms of changes, uncertainties, obstacles and opportunities. The objective is to identify potential key features for the introduction, development, promotion, implementation, and large-scale deployment of a highly successful energy proposal in countries such as Iceland, one of the pioneers in base its economy on hydrogen technologies. To conclude, this report illustrates the positive engagement of a sample of Spanish stake holders towards hydrogen technologies that may prove vital in the transition towards the Hydrogen Economy in Spain.

Therefore, an important effort has been made to normalize and process the information prior to its incorporation to the database. This volume presents the criteria applied to normalize and process the data as well as the soil properties of the various soil types belonging to the Comunidad Autonoma de Extremadura.

    Spanish's waste water shoes a conventional pollution, and increased DQO values. Contains several organic and inorganic compounds. For domestic wastewater this situation imply to apply measures of control from the origin and another of environmental education. While WWTP investigated obtain high yielding in treatment of metals, HPA, VOC and alquilphenols, the behaviour versus plaguicides, thin-organic compounds and other organic is more un-favourable. Several substances overpasses the values established in the E-PRTR normative, so in the next future could be experience problems to fulfil the normative about this subject, as well as those related to reuse of treated wastewater and bio-solids generated in the WWP.

    Full Text Available The shape of the Eiffel Tower has been discussed several times, seeking for physical and mathematical relationships. This article aims to address this analysis from a different point of view: the historical and sequential evolution of design over the course of the Eiffel company. Thus, the relationship between the experience gained in different works and technicians can be verified. The paper also tries to give merit to work of all the collaborators of Eiffel over those years. In short, the final solution of the Tower is contrasted and corroborated as a great example of structural art, as has been described in the past.La forma de la Torre Eiffel ha sido varias veces analizada, buscando relaciones físicas y matemáticas. Este artículo pretende abordar este análisis desde un punto de vista diferente, la evolución histórica y secuencial del diseño a lo largo de la trayectoria de la empresa de Eiffel. De esta manera, puede comprobarse la relación entre la experiencia acumulada en diferentes obras y técnicos. Se intenta además atribuir los méritos que corresponden a todos los colaboradores de Eiffel a lo largo de esos años. En definitiva, se contrasta y corrobora de esta manera a la solución final de la Torre como un magnífico ejemplo de arte estructural, como ya ha sido descrito en otras ocasiones.

    Consumables for welding containing rutile, the coating of the electrode or the filling of tubular thread, are the most widely used and also the most radioactive since the rutile is a mineral containing traces of natural radionuclides, and is therefore considered Normal Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM). As these electrodes and wire are consumed, small particles, aerosols and gases are emitted to the atmosphere of work, and may be inhaled by the welder. Therefore, and also according to the current regulatory framework and work carried out previously by the author on the radiological impact of the process of manufacture and storage of coated rutile electrodes, the objectives are: 1Calcular the internal dose for inhalation during two types of welding, one with electrodes coated and the other with thread. 2 calculate the external dose due to the deposition of particles in the work environment, slag and the immersion of the soldering iron in the cloud of smoke. 3 to assess the radiological impact.

    The Sopelana sea-cliff exposes marl-limestone couplets from the Upper Maastrichtian (MS1 and MS2 sections) and the Lower Eocene (EI section), in the deep Basque Arc domain. The high-resolution analysis (% CaCO3) of the MS1 couplets confirms a complex behaviour with strong compositional contrast vs. a more regular MS2 couplets. This may be due to a drastic environmental change (long humid and rainy alternating to drier periods) towards dominant humid and rainy periods, with a minor...

    Full Text Available Resumen: Muchas interpretaciones modernas de la salvación trasfiguran y personalizan la salvación. La estancia eterna de un alma en el cielo es posible por medio de la salvación. Las ideas judías y cristianas son más profundas y complicadas e incluyen una idea de la salvación como una emancipación de "poderes y principios." La salvación llega después de una adaptación por el dirigente legítimo del universo y una liberación de la esclavitud a otros dirigentes falsos. Yo resumo el significado del Éxodo y las interpretaciones cristianas del reino de Dios en tres de los movimientos más importantes de la emancipación en la historia de los Estados Unidos, y hasta se podría decir del mundo: la Revolución Americana, la campaña abolicionista y el movimiento por los derechos civiles. Abstract: Many modern Christian understandings of salvation spiritualize and personalize salvation. Salvation is what makes it possible for an individual soul to spend eternity in heaven. Jewish and Christian notions of salvation are richer and more complicated, and include an understanding of salvation as emancipation from "powers and principalities." To be saved is to be adopted by the rightful ruler of the universe and liberated from servitude to all other false rulers. I briefly outline the significance of the Exodus and Christian understandings of the kingdom of God for three of the major emancipation movements in the history of the United States, and arguably the world, namely the American Revolution, the abolitionist movement, and the Civil Rights movement.

    Full Text Available En el presente trabajo probamos la habilidad de los machos de Epicrates cenchria alvarezi para encontrar y seguir señales químicas depositadas en el sustrato como rastros de olor y examinamos el posible origen de la huella química. Los machos parecen rastrear a las hembras si éstas tienen obstáculos en los que propulsarse y en donde dejar el rastro químico. Los resultados sugieren que la piel de las hembras es una fuente probable de las señales olorosas. In some species of snakes it has been demostrated the ability of males to found and follow chemical signals deposited over sustrate as odor trails. In this paper we tested this ability in males of Epicrates cenchria alvarezi and we also examined the possible source of the chemical signals. Males seem to follow better the trails if females have obstacles to propel herselfs and where to lie a chemical trail. Results suggest that the skin of females is the probable source of the chemical signals.

    Radiotherapy techniques like VMAT allow complex dose distributions modulating the beam intensity within the irradiation field from the handling of multi-blade collimators, variations in dose rate, different speeds of rotation of the gantry and collimator angle allowing greater conformation of the dose to the tumor volume and a lower dose to healthy tissues. To ensure proper dose delivery, the linear particle accelerator must be able to monitor and perform all the variation in these parameters simultaneously. In this work dosimetric tests obtained in the literature that aims to commission, implement and ensure the quality of VMAT treatments were performed performed in the Institute of Cancer of Sao Paulo State (ICESP). From the results obtained it was established a program of quality control for the linear accelerator studied. The linearity and stability response of ionization chamber monitoring, leafs accuracy positioning, flatness and symmetry of beam to VMAT irradiations were evaluated. The obtained results are in agreement with the literature. It can be concluded that the accelerator studied is able to satisfactorily control the variation of all necessary parameters to perform the VMAT treatments. (author)

    Retuerta del Bullaque is a new Spanish iron meteorite. Found in 1980, has been recovered from the Province of Ciudad Real, near the northern limit of the Cabaneros National Park (39 degree centigrade 27 min 32 s N, 4 degree centigrade 22 min 39 s W). The specimen is a coarse octahedrite of about 100 kg in weight, with many concave regmaglyphes in one surface and moderate terrestrial weathering. The atmospheric heat-affected rim ({<=}1.5 mm) is partially preserved. Analysis by ICP-AES (Ni: 7.527 and Co: 0.475 in wt%) and by ICP-MS (Ga: 68.9, Ge: 365, As: 13.7, W: 0.95, Ir: 1.95 and Au: 1.70 in ppm) we used to classify the specimen as an IAB complex (Main Group). Chemically, Retuerta del Bullaque iron is similar to Kaalijarv iron but its mineralogy and texture are more like other low Ni-Au irons of main group (e.g. Diablo Canyon). The bulk of the specimen is a Wid-manstatten kamacite (band-width estimated at 2.0 {+-} 0.3 mm) with large and tabular crystals of cohenite and polygonal kamacite without cohenite that exhibits abundant Neumann lines. Schreibersite (irregular crystals + rhabdite) is rare in the two sectors. Taenite is present in thick lamellae between kamacite bands and pearlitic plessite. Lamellar cohenite is very abundant (9.5% of the total area into two sections 77.7 and 41.1 cm{sup 2}), is partially covered of schreibersite and contains kamacite-taenite spherules. The larger sections display irregularly shaped troilite-graphite nodules (max. size, 5-12 mm), located in the central areas of the kamacite polygonal sectors. Each nodule has a rim of schreibersite + cohenite. The original morphology of the specimen was preserved making replicas as molds and casts (using elastomers, resins and modified plasters) and a 3D-laser scan. (Author)

    Previous research supports the importance of organizational factors on safety in high reliability organizations. This study aims to determine the impact of those factors in the Spanish nuclear sector. Particularly, this study focuses on examining the role of performance indicators, organizational culture, organizational factors, and organizational context. With that purpose, an electronic survey addressed to experts from the Spanish nuclear sector was carried out. Results showed that performance indicators are well-known among industry experts and are perceived as useful for improving performance. Behavioural norms that influence safety and some relevant factors that promote problem identification were identified. Additionally, findings suggested that organizational context must be taken into account to better understand the role of organizational culture. Moreover, industry experts pointed out organizational factors to be improved: organizational communication processes within the organization, positive reinforcement, and field supervisors practices. Finally, findings supported the influence of organizational context on safety. It is noteworthy the role of the social impact of international events (e.g., Chernobyl...), the relationship with the regulator and the legislative and governmental framework. (Author)

    A revised procedure for daily control of the electron beams to make measurements more meaningful physically, having a better reproducibility and more in line with the recommendations of the Spanish Protocol for Quality Control in Electron Linear Accelerators Clinical Use. The daily quality control beams of high energy electrons that had been done so far was the finding that the record of a series of measures (symmetry, uniformity, stability, energy, beam central dose) were within tolerance values established. The amendment is to check the beam quality by directly measuring changes in absorption depth at which the dose is reduced to half its maximum value, R50.

    This paper analyses the relationship between productivity, innovation and research at firm level using an extension of the structural model of Crepon, Duguet and Mairesse (1998). The study is performed for Spanish firms of manufacturing sector, by using information from the ''Encuesta sobre innovacion tecnologica en las empresas 2000 and 2004''. The empirical results suggest that the public fund, the size of the firms and the participation in the international markets plays an important role in the decisions to realize internal research activities. In addition, the firms that realize a major effort in research it is more probable that they are innovative of product and/or of process. Finally, the estimations also emphasize that increases in productivity are positively correlated with the introduction of new products and/or processes and the intensity of the physical capital.

    The increased in the adoption of formally environmental certified practices through environmental management systems is a provable fact. Its implementation, which has a high cost for the companies, is expected to generate benefits, although the relation between the implementation of ISO 14001 and its influence on the improvement of economic indicators over time has not been documented. This paper analyzes the relation between the implementation of an environmental management system, the ISO 14001, and economic performance in the short, medium and long term for the companies of the Spanish ceramic tile industry. It explores the economic indicators for each of the 66 manufacturing companies which have implemented the aforementioned standard from 1996 until 2009 through a comparison with a control group. Results show that ISO 14001 does not affect the economic results of the studied companies. We have not found significant differences in the operating income values, neither in the increase in revenues in the long term in any of the three analyzed periods, contrary to the expected results.

Due to the radio-sensitization activity of both sorafenib and gemcitabine, we designed a multicenter, phase I trial to evaluate the safety profile and the recommended dose of this combination used with concomitant radiation therapy.Patients with biopsy-proven, unresectable pancreatic adenocarcinoma (based on vascular invasion detected by computed tomography were treated with gemcitabine (300 mg/m2 i.v. weekly ×5 weeks concurrently with radiation therapy (45 Gy in 25 fractions and sorafenib (escalated doses in a 3+3 design, from 200 to 800 mg/day. Radiation portals included the primary tumor but not the regional lymph nodes. Patients with planning target volumes (PTV over 500 cc were excluded. Cases not progressing during chemoradiation were allowed to continue with sorafenib until disease progression.Twelve patients were included. Three patients received 200 mg/day, 6 received 400 mg/day, and 3 received 800 mg/day; PTVs ranged from 105 to 500 cc. No dose-limiting toxicities occurred. The most common grade 2 toxicities were fatigue, neutropenia, nausea, and raised serum transaminases. Treatment was discontinued in one patient because of a reversible posterior leukoencephalopathy. There were no treatment-related deaths.The addition of sorafenib to concurrent gemcitabine and radiation therapy showed a favorable safety profile in unresectable pancreatic adenocarcinoma. A dose of 800 mg/day is recommended for phase II evaluation.EudraCT 2007-003211-31 ClinicalTrials.gov 00789763.

    The advanced properties of engineering ceramics are suitable to meet the requirements of several engineering applications such as medical (prosthesis), automotive (bearing...), aerospace (tiles,...), optics (lasers,) and so on, where high hardness, high wear resistance and thermo chemical stability are needed. However, the processing of these materials is difficult and costly, in some cases up to 90% of the price, which leads ceramics to limited applications. Rotary Ultrasonic Machining (RUM) is presented as a non conventional environmental-friendly and cost effective process that enables to obtain complex 3D shape ceramic products. A rotating tool with metal-bonded diamond abrasives is ultrasonically vibrated (typically 20KHz) and fed toward to the fixed work piece at a constant pressure or a constant feed rate This process combines conventional grinding and ultrasonic machining, offering the possibility of increased material removal rates while keeping the machining forces low. Thus, the limitations of actually used conventional processes are overcome introducing more accurate, flexible and cost effective process capabilities. On balance, RUM is a promising process for primary machining operations on structural ceramic components. Its features will lead to enhance the use of ceramics in more industrial applications by increasing product development/design capabilities, high added value products and sustainable process.

    Conflicts between groundwater use and wetland conservation are especially relevant in arid and semi-arid zones, where the areas of these natural ecosystems have decreased in the last decades. Fifty years ago, wetland losses didn't cause any conflicts because they were not valued positively. The situation has changed due to the advances in agricultural technologies, to the disappearance of marshy diseases and the development of Ecology as a science. Nowadays, there is a general awareness that wetlands must be protected. Some of the most important conflicts between groundwater development and coastal wetland conservation have taken place in Valencia (Almenara and Pego-Oliva wetlands). These two cases are analysed in this paper, together with the current situation of the Mar Menor in Murcia. (Author) 34 refs.

    The terms used to identify minerals in public exhibitions usually depends primarily upon the textural, chemical and/or structural problems related to their classification. Furthermore, the label attached to any specimen can only contain a limited amount of information, thus limiting still more the specimen's complete identification. We have examined this problem with the intention of achieving greater rigour in mineral classification whilst at the same time providing the public with the most complete information possible. Five recurring problems encountered in the permanent collections of the Spanish Museum of Geomining in Madrid have been dealt with (allowing the reader to become a virtual visitor): a) specimens made up of several species; b) specimens composed of minerals that form solid-solutions; c) mixed materials of low crystallinity; d) specimens with chemical or structural zones; and e) specimens showing evidence of pseudomorphosis. The minerals involved are common and come from sites in Spain of interest to museums, collectors or commercial ventures. We have only undertaken analyses, using X-ray diffraction, when the information available is non-existent or insufficient. The suggestions made and decisions adopted may help in the labelling of other collections both public and private. (Author) 60 refs.

    The document describes the methodology used at CIEMAT in order to determine, by gamma spectrometry, the background levels of the radionuclide Cs-137 in soils of the Spanish peninsular territory. the work is a part of an extensive research project developed jointly by the University of the Basque Country (UPV-EHU) and the CIEMAT, endellite Content and migration of radiocaesium and radiostrontium in Spanish soils, which is funded by the Plan I+D of the Spanish Nuclear Security Council (CSN). The objective of the project is to establish the reference levels of man-made radionuclides in Spanish soils, with respect to which the evaluation of a possible posterior accidental release of radioactive material could be appraised. The activity concentration of the fission products Cs-137 has been determined in 34 soil cores extracted from representative Spanish soils type zones. This publication describes the experimental system employed, its calibration, the particular conditions applied to perform the measurements, as well as the experimental validation of the methodology. The activity profiles and inventories of the radioactive element so obtained are also presented. The estimation of the background Cs-137 reference levels, will provide a basis for later applications as the study of the spatial distribution in the region, the determination of the correlation between the deposited activity and the meteorological conditions, or the calculation of the specific migration parameters of the radioactive elements in Mediterranean conditions.

    The classification represents the first step in the research of the wetlands. There are several types of classifications established according different criteria: geographic, genetic, geologic, functional, hydric, biologic and others. In this work we considered the genetic and geologic classifications criteria are the more suitable because the criteria used are very concrete, descriptive and its application should be easier to put into practice. Every group established in this type of classification determines the develop naturals conditions allowing us to establish the evolution guidelines and same main management lines. The criteria used to develop this classification have been fundamentally: geologic, geomorphologic, tectonics, stratigraphic, and hydrogeologic because these determine greatly the physical wetland characteristics (geometric parameters, hydric nourishment system, hydrochemical characteristics and others). The general characteristics, guidelines behavior of the wetland, and the early evolution of every group of wetland could be essentials to detect and identified those actuations modifying the natural evolution in each concrete wetland. In this work we are applying these classification criteria to the Spanish wetlands included in the Ramsar Convention (until February 2006), defining twelve types of basic wetlands according the geologic and genetic characteristics.

    Reduced Activation Ferritic-Martensitic (RAFM) structural steels are considered as candidate materials with notable possibilities to be incorporated to fusion reactor ITER, nowadays under construction, and future fusion reactor DEMO, involving a notable forecasting of supply materials, with a considerable limitation due to the few number of furnishes currently on the market. The manufacture at an industrial scale of the ASTURFER steel, developed at laboratory scale by ITMA Materials Technology and the Structural Materials Division of the Technology Division of CIEMAT would be a significant business opportunity for steelwork companies.

    Telecommunications carriers are deploying the so called New Generation Access (NGA) networks. These networks consist in substituting the last part of the network (the one that ends in the premises of the client) with optical fiber. This part of the network used to be made of copper. The investments in NGA imply considerable risks but can also constitute an impulse for other sectors. This research proposes a method for the evaluation of these investments including the implied real options. We also consider the regulatory implications of the obligations of renting the network to competitors. (Author) 22 refs.

    Starting from the hypothesis that environmental concern is socially built, dynamic and permeable to current situation and the news, this work is two aimed: a) To study potential differences in environmental concern due to socio demographic variables, in order to define an environmentally concerned profile; b) To analyze the evolution of this concern in Spanish society for the last seven years. To archive this purposes, data originating in Spanish sociological research centre (CIS) opinion surveys has been used. No significant relation among socio demographic variables and environmental concern has been found. Percentage of people concerned about environment is quite low (about 2%), above all in relation to other issues as economic situation, terrorism or immigration. However, this percentage has increased remarkably when some environmentally threatening event has been present (as forest fi res, or Prestige oil spill). It has also been detected that this concern is gradually increasing, possibly due to growing knowledge of economic and technical development and environmental damage relation. Environmental concern is different according to which territorial level people has in mind when reporting their opinion (world, country or region). (Author) 31 refs.

    The main aim of this technical report is to analyze the media coverage of the Copenhagen Climate Summit published by selected Spanish media six national and regional newspapers for general and financial information plus the most highly watched Spanish television news -. Quantitative and qualitative researches have been used to address the empirical section of this report including, among others, content analysis, narrative factors and different statistics to estimate the relationship between variables. The most significant results are: 1) between 50 and 80% of the print media coverage comes from wire services; 2) this Climate Summit achieves a good position among the most important media agenda issues but, in the half of the cases, a high position on the agenda does not correspond to a high volume of media coverage; 3) it hasn't been identified any relationship between the media's adherence to interacting journalistic norms and the amount of media coverage; 4) dramatization is the journalistic norm to which media shows more adherence; 5) media publishing more articles from wire services are those showing a higher adherence to journalistic norms; 6) narrative factors are organized following a story line plot with introduction, body (or climax) and ending of the event and actions, receiving climax period the highest levels of media coverage.

    This report presents the results from a survey on experts attitudes towards the development of CCS in Spain. This is the fi rst study carried out in Spain trying to report an empirical analysis of stake holders perception on the risks, challenges and barriers facing CCS deployment. Results show a positive attitude towards CCS implementation in Spain. Experts are concerned about the existence of suitable storage sites in Spain, safety of storage and costs from capture. They tend to support of CCS as a bridging solution to climate change and have a general low level of perceived risk from CCS. Experts risk perception is influenced, to some extent, by prior values and beliefs as well as by socio demographics and, to a lesser extent, by group membership. (Author) 15 refs.

En el perfil realizado se han reconocido niveles de lavas ácidas y básicas, intercaladas con areniscas y pelitas masivas y laminadas, con graptolitos. Estas rocas están intruidas por la granodiorita de Las Angosturas habiéndose reconocido en ellas asociaciones minerales que ponen de manifiesto los efectos del metamorfismo de contacto sobreimpuesto. La descripción de las relaciones de campo, petrografía y contenido fosilífero de esta sucesión brinda las evidencias necesarias para atestiguar que la actividad volcánica efusiva sin-sedimentaria se inició durante el Tremadociano temprano en el norte del Sistema de Famatina. La caracterización de estos registros respecto de los depósitos arenigianos, también permite asegurar que en esta región la columna ordovícica se desarrolló como resultado de dos eventos de volcanismo y sedimentación y es posible establecer nuevos parámetros de correlación con secuencias del Paleozoico inferior en el noroeste de Argentina.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Comparar a amplitude de flexão e de extensão de tronco por meio de goniometria em atletas e não atletas, relacionando estes dados com o teste do ângulo poplíteo e dos músculos isquiotibiais. MÉTODOS: A amplitude de flexão e extensão de tronco foi avaliada em 50 indivíduos praticantes de esporte regularmente e 50 indivíduos não atletas, os quais não apresentavam nenhum tipo de sintomatologia dolorosa lombar, bem como algum sintoma que pudesse influenciar a realização dos testes. As mensurações foram realizadas por dois examinadores independentes consecutivamente por meio de goniometria. Os valores de flexão e extensão de tronco obtidos pela avaliação da goniometria foram correlacionados com o teste do ângulo poplíteo e de flexibilidade dos isquiotibiais, analisando-se a correlação estatística entre os mesmos. RESULTADOS: Os valores médios obtidos foram 130,7 (101,9 para flexão e 40,2 (36,4 para extensão. Verificou-se diferença estatisticamente significante entre o grupo de atletas e não atletas em relação aos parâmetros: goniômetro em flexão com o avaliador 1, goniômetro em flexão com o avaliador 2 e teste dos isquiotibiais. Não foi verificada diferença estatisticamente significante entre o grupo de atletas e não atletas em relação aos parâmetros: goniômetro em extensão com o avaliador 1, goniômetro em extensão com avaliador 2 e teste do ângulo poplíteo. CONCLUSÃO: Observa-se que a flexão do tronco apresenta valores mais elevados em indivíduos praticantes de esporte. A utilização de goniometria para mensuração de amplitude de tronco indicou valores variáveis entre os examinadores.OBJETIVE: To compare the amplitude of trunk flexion and extension through goniometry in athletes and non-athletes, relating these data to popliteal angle and ischiotibial tests. METHODS: The amplitude of trunk flexibility and extension was evaluated in 50 individuals who practiced sports on a regular basis and 50 non-athletes who did not report painful symptomatology nor any symptom that could affect test performance. The measurements were made consecutively by two independent examiners by means of goniometry. The trunk flexibility and extension results were correlated to the popliteal angle and ischiotibial test, and the statistical correlation between them was analyzed. RESULTS: The average values obtained were 130.7 (101.9 for flexion and 40.2 (36.4 for extension. A significant statistical difference between the athletes and non-athletes was found in the following parameters: goniometer in flexion with examiner 1, goniometer in flexion with examiner 2 and ischiotibial test. No significant statistical differences have been found between the groups or in relation to the following parameters: goniometer in extension with examiner 1, goniometer in extension with examiner 2 and popliteal angle. CONCLUSION: Individuals who practice sports present higher values in trunk flexion than non-athletes. The use of goniometry to measure trunk amplitude showed variable measurements between examiners.

    Full Text Available There is a series of high medieval buildings scattered around the present-day provinces of Álava, Burgos and La Rioja which form an architectonic family whose main common features are the covering of the apsidal spaces with travertine stone domes propped up on squinches and the recurrent reuse of masonry from Roman stone. The chronological ascription of the different components of this family of buildings is surprisingly varied. Some are held as genuine Roman works while others are dated in the Visigoth period or even later. We believe that this chronological disparateness is historically incomprehensible. The homogeneity of techniques and results must correspond to an equally homogenous chronological/material period which is unlikely to last for so many centuries. We defend high medieval dates (9th-10th century for all the members of this architectonic group, both for technical and historic reasons.Existe una serie de edificios altomedievales repartidos por las actuales provincias de Álava, Burgos y La Rioja que forman una familia arquitectónica cuyos principales rasgos de parentesco son la cubrición de los espacios absidales con cúpulas en piedra toba apeadas en pechinas y la recurrente reutilización de sillería procedente de fábricas romanas. La adscripción cronológica de los diferentes componentes de esta familia edilicia es sorprendentemente variada. Algunos de ellos son tenidos como obras genuinamente romanas mientras que otros se fechan en época visigoda o incluso más allá. Pensamos que esta disparidad cronológica es históricamente incomprensible. La homogeneidad en las técnicas y resultados tiene que responder a un horizonte cronológico/material igualmente homogéneo que difícilmente puede durar tantos siglos. Nosotros defendemos unas fechas altomedievales (siglos IX-X para todos los integrantes de este grupo arquitectónico, tanto por razones técnicas como históricas.

    Full Text Available Em isquemia crítica sem leito arterial distal, um dos modos de irrigar o membro isquêmico é derivar o fluxo de maneira retrógrada através do sistema venoso. As primeiras tentativas de fístulas arteriovenosas terapêuticas datam do início do século passado. Realizadas na parte proximal dos membros inferiores, não obtiveram resultados favoráveis. A partir da década de 70, com os trabalhos pioneiros de Lengua, as fístulas passaram a ser estendidas até o pé, e os bons resultados apareceram em várias publicações. Os autores relatam a evolução de um caso de tromboangeíte obliterante submetida ao procedimento. Essa é uma cirurgia de indicação precisa, que requer estudo pré-operatório arterial e venoso e observância a detalhes de técnica operatória.In critical ischemia without arterial run-off, it is possible to irrigate the ischemic limb by turning the course of the flow reversely through the venous system. The first experiments with therapeutic arteriovenous fistulas date from the beginning of the last century. They were performed in the proximal area of the lower limbs, but showed unfavorable results. Since the 1970's, with the pioneer studies of Lengua, fistulas started being extended to the foot and several publications have reported good outcomes. The authors report the evolution of a case of thromboangiitis obliterans which was submitted to the procedure. This is an accurate surgical procedure which requires arterial and venous preoperative study and the observance of technical operative details.

    This report examines two aspects related to the use of questionnaires in safety culture research conducted in high reliability organizations. First, a literature review of recent studies that address safety culture through questionnaires is presented. Literature review showed that most studies used only questionnaires as a research technique, were cross-sectional, applied paper-based questionnaires, and were conducted in one type of high reliability organization. Second, a research project on safety culture that used electronic surveys in a sample of experts on safety culture is discussed. This project, developed by CISOT-CIEMAT research institute, was carry out in the Spanish nuclear sector and illustrates relevant aspects of the methodological design and administration processes that must be considered to encourage participation in the study..

    Full Text Available El objetivo de este trabajo fue comparar el efecto de tres tipos de ambiente de transporte sobre el tiempo de aparición y progreso de los cambios autolíticos de muestras de alevines muertos, enviados para ser procesados para análisis histopatológico. Para ello se depositaron 300 cadáveres de alevines completos en tres ambientes de transporte: sumergidos agua a 4 °C, sumergidos agua a 15 °C y ambiente seco a 4 °C. Cada una hora, desde el tiempo cero hasta las 24 horas, grupos de 4 alevines por ambiente fueron fijados en formalina al 10% y procesados con la técnica histológica convencional de hematoxilina&eosina. En todos los grupos se determinó el tiempo de aparición de los cambios autolíticos en los distintos segmentos del riñón e hígado, clasificándose en cambios autolíticos tempranos, avanzados y autólisis completa. Se observó que los cambios autolíticos se evidencian primero en los hígados de los cadáveres a 4 °C en ambiente seco y al último en los cadáveres sumergidos en agua a 4 °C (1 y 6 horas, respectivamente. Respecto al riñón, los primeros cambios autolíticos se presentaron en cadáveres a 4 °C en ambiente seco y al último en los cadáveres sumergidos en agua a 4 °C (3 y 9 horas, respectivamente. De este estudio se concluye que de los tres ambientes de transporte comparados, el que conserva por más tiempo la estructura histológica y citológica de los tejidos de los peces para análisis histológico es la conservación sumergidos en agua a 4 °C, evidenciando el rol clave de la temperatura y humedad ambiental en el progreso de la autólisis de peces.The aim of this work was to compare three types of transport conditions on the appearance and progress of autolytic changes in samples of dead fry sent to be processed for histopathological analysis. 300 whole fry corpses were subjected to three transport conditions: submerged in water at 4 °C, submerged in water at 15 °C and dry atmosphere at 4 °C. Every hour from 0 to 24 hours, groups of 4 fry per condition were fixed in 10% formalin and processed using the conventional hematoxylin and eosin stain technique (H&E. The appearance time of the autolytic changes in the different segments of the kidney and liver were determined in each group, classifying the changes as early autolytic, advanced autolytic and complete autolysis. It was observed that the autolytic changes appeared first in the livers of the corpses at 4 °C under dry condition while last ones to be affected were the corpses submerged in water at 4 °C (1 and 6 hours, respectively. The first autolytic changes appeared in the kidneys of the corpses at 4 °C in the dry atmosphere and the last in the corpses submerged in water at 4 °C (3 and 9 hours, respectively. It was concluded that out of the three transport conditions studied, the one preserving for longer the histological and cytological structure of the fish tissue for histological analysis was water preservation at 4 °C, demonstrating the key role of the temperature and atmospheric humidity in the progress of fish autolysis.

    In trout farming males exhibits lower growth rate and precocious sexual maturation in contrast to females. Since these traits are detrimental for intensive production, all females populations are most appreciated by fish farmers. Molecular markers sex-specific have been developed for rainbow trout that can be useful to diagnose the phenotypic sex of individuals. We evaluated the use of two SCAR markers (OmyP9 & Omy163), which show polymorphisms between males and females in rainbow trout as a ...

    This work develops a finite difference method to evaluate the temperature field in the heat affected zone in butt welding applied to AISI 304 stainless steel thin sheet by GTAW process. A computer program has been developed and implemented by Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) in MS-Excel spreadsheet. The results that are obtained using the numerical application foresee the thermal behaviour of arc welding processes. An experimental methodology has been developed to validate the mathematical model that allows to measure the temperature in several points close to the weld bead. The methodology is applied to a stainless steel sheet with a thickness lower than 3 mm, although may be used for other steels and welding processes as MIG/MAG and SMAW. The data which has been obtained from the experimental procedure have been used to validate the results that have been calculated by the finite differences numerical method. The mathematical model adjustment has been carried out taking into account the experimental results. The differences found between the experimental and theoretical approaches are due to the convection and radiation heat losses, which have not been considered in the simulation model.With this simple model, the designer will be able to calculate the thermal cycles that take place in the process as well as to predict the temperature field in the proximity of the weld bead.

    A considerable number of crack tip opening displacement tests in the heat affected zone (HAZ) of multipass welds. performed in accordance with standards BS 5762 and EEMUA, are rejected since the crack is not inside the coarse grain region at 0.5 mm from the fusion border, as well as the quantity of the crack length in percentage, that the crack goes through the inter critical region instead of in the grain coarse region as it would correspond. This circumstance make advisable to carry out a metallographic study of he inter critical zone in the HAZ as well as the corresponding tests, in order analyze the inter critical region brittleness reasons. The study is performed on a HSLA 75 mm thick panel 450 EMZ type II, welded under a SAW process with heat input and welded parameters controlled, without any post weld heat treatment. (Author)

    The results of the thermal efficiency on welding by modified indirect electric arc technique (MIEA) [1] of the 6061- T6 aluminum alloy are presented. These values are in a range of 90 to 94 %, which depend of the preheating employed. Thermal efficiency was obtained by means of a balance energy which considers the heat input, the amount of melted mass of the welding profiles, and welding parameters during the joining, especially of the arc current data acquisition. Also, some dimensionless parameters were employed in order to determine the approximation grade of the melted pool, the heat affected zone (HAZ), and their corresponding values with the experimental results.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: avaliar o tempo de retração e o grau da inclinação sofrida pelo canino empregando três tipos de molas ortodônticas para retração - a alça em "T", a alça em "L" e a alça em forma de gota. MÉTODOS: foram utilizados três tipos de fio - aço inoxidável da marca comercial Morelli, aço inoxidável da marca comercial 3M Unitek e liga de beta-titânio da marca comercial Ormco; todos de calibre 0,019" x 0,025". A amostra resultante da combinação dos fatores mola e fio foi submetida à avaliação em modelo de typodont específico para essa finalidade. RESULTADOS: com relação ao tempo de fechamento das alças, verificou-se que um fechamento mais lento, e consequentemente com menor liberação de forças, foi obtido com o desenho de alça em "T" e, ainda, empregando-se a liga de beta-titânio para sua confecção. No que diz respeito à inclinação gerada pelas alças, as alças em forma de gota promoveram uma inclinação dentária maior do que as demais avaliadas. As alças em "T", por outro lado, mantiveram-se relacionadas estatisticamente aos menores valores de inclinação. Porém, quando se empregou o fio de aço inoxidável da marca comercial 3M Unitek para sua confecção, os três tipos de alça não apresentaram diferença estatisticamente significante. CONCLUSÃO: independentemente do desenho de alça empregado, aquelas construídas com liga de beta-titânio mantiveram-se relacionadas estatisticamente aos menores valores de inclinação observados para o elemento dentário movimentado.OBJETIVE: Evaluate the cuspid's retraction time and tipping effects, after submitting it to three different orthodontic retraction loops: the "T" loop, the "boot" loop, and the "tear drop" loop. METHODS: It was used the following orthodontic wires: Morelli 0.019" x 0.025" stainless steel, 3M Unitek 0.019" x 0.025" stainless steel and Ormco 0.019" x 0.025" beta-titanium (TMA™. The resulting sample from the combination of these variables was submitted to a test developed on a typodont simulator used specifically for this purpose. RESULTS: As the closure timing concerns, it was verified that a slower closure and therefore, a smaller releasing force system was achieved by the "T" loop design and still, by employing the beta-titanium alloy on its construction. As to the tipping effects generated by the retraction device, the "tear drop" loop caused greater tipping effects than the other loops evaluated. The "T" loop, on the other hand, showed itself statistically related to the lowest tipping numerical values. However, when the 3M Unitek stainless steel wire was used to produce the device, all of the types of loops evaluated were considered statistically similar. CONCLUSION: Regardless of the loop design, the ones built out of beta-titanium alloy kept them statistically related to the lowest tipping numerical values observed for the retracted dental element.

The main topographic break in this fan of reverse faultscoincides with the Copahue Fault. This structure uplifted Late Pliocenesequences over younger unconsolidated fluvial and coluvial deposits. Thedetailed study of these sequences allowed identifying at least two periods ofactivity for the Copahue Fault. This fault, as well as the other neighbor thrusts,cuts the Copahue lavas to the south showing the precise geometry of theChanchó-Co uplift.

    The Pensamiento Granitoid Complex (PGC), located in the northern part of the eastern Precambrian shield of Bolivia, is tectonically assigned to the Rondonian-San Ignacio Province (1.55 - 1.30 Ga) of the Amazonian Craton that is made up by Archean and Proterozoic provinces. The Proterozoic ones result from accretionary orogens that become successively younger south westwards, such as the Rondonian/San Ignacio (1.37 - 1.32 Ga) and the Sunsas orogenies (1.20 - 1.00 Ga). The PGC crops out mainly on the 'Paragua craton' bounded to the south by the Sunsas belt, and composed of granites and subvolcanic terms, and subordinately of syenites, granodiorites, tonalites, trondhjemites and diorites as orogenic representatives of the Rondonian/San Ignacio Orogeny, intrusive into the Lomas Maneches (ca. 1.68 Ga) and Chiquitania (ca. 1.7 Ga) complexes. Thirteen whole rock chemical analyses for major, trace and REE elements were performed for the La Junta, San Martin, Diamantina, Porvernir, San Cristobal, Piso Firme plutons of the PGC. The negative trends of MgO, Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} and CaO contents with increasing SiO{sub 2} suggest that fractional crystallization played an important role in the petrogenesis of the investigated rocks. The data also indicate a mainly peraluminous, sub-alkaline to high-K calc-alkaline composition, and fractionated LREE/HREE patterns are consistent with a magmatic arc character for these plutons. SHRIMP U-Pb zircon ages of the La Junta and San Martin syn- to late-kinematic plutons are 1347 {+-} 21 Ma and 1373 {+-} 20 Ma respectively, and the Sm-Nd T{sub DM} model ages are between 1.9 to 2.0 Ga, while {epsilon}{sub Nd(1330)} values range from +1.8 to -4.3, respectively. In addition, the late- to post-kinematic Diamantina pluton yields SHRIMP U-Pb zircon age of 1340 {+-} 20 Ma, and variable Sm-Nd T{sub DM} model ages (1.6 to 1.9 Ga) and {epsilon}{sub Nd(1330)} values (+0.4 to -1.2) that are comparable with previous results found for other coeval plutons. The Porvenir, San Cristobal and Piso Firme plutons show {epsilon}{sub Nd(1330)} signatures varying from +1.5 to +2.7, in agreement with a plutonic arc setting as is suggested for the Diamantina pluton. Integrated interpretation of the geochemical and isotopic data coupled with new geologic correlations of the PGC with contemporary units in the Brazilian counterpart establishes one Mesoproterozoic magmatic arc in the evolution of the Rondonian-San Ignacio province.

    The Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) is an advance technique of Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT). This progress is due to the continuous gantry rotation with the radiation beam modulation providing lower time of the patient treatment. This research aimed the verification of the isodose curves in a simulation of a vertebra treatment with spinal cord protection using the thermoluminescent (TL) and optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) dosimetry techniques and the LiF:Mg,Ti (TLD-100), CaS0{sub 4}:Dy and Al{sub 2}0{sub 3}:C dosimeters and LiF:Mg,Ti micro dosimeters (TLD-100). The dosimeters were characterized using PMMA plates of 30 x 30 x 30 cm{sup 3} and different thickness. All irradiations were done using Truebeam STx linear accelerator of Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein, with 6 MV photons beam. After the dosimeter characterization, they were irradiated according the specific planning simulation and using a PMMA phantom developed to VMAT measurements. This irradiation aimed to verify the isodose curves of the treatment simulation using the two dosimetry techniques. All types of dosimeters showed satisfactory results to determine the dose distribution but analysing the complexity of the isodose curves and the proximity of them, the LiF:Mg,Ti micro dosimeter showed the most appropriate for use due to its small dimensions. Regarding the best technique, as both technique showed satisfactory results, the TL technique presents less complex to be used because the most of the radiotherapy departments already have a TL laboratory. The OSL technique requires more care and greater investment in the hospital. (author)

    The objective of this work is the investigation of a new process as an alternative to the Vacuum Arc Remelting technology in the consolidation of Zircaloy chips. A procedure is proposed for the recycling of primary Zircaloy scraps by means of a modified VAR furnace. The performed studies were made in order to optimise the low cost new devices added to existing VAR furnace prototype, find ideal operational conditions, evaluate data acquisition system and the electric arc dynamical system in order to made viable the automated control of the modified VAR prototype. A funnel-crucible special device was developed and installed in a VAR prototype furnace allowing ingots to be obtained from pressed chips. This indicated the viability of creation of a new process for the consolidation of Zircaloy chips. The voltage of the electric arc during the melting runs was digitally recorded allowing the evaluation of the electric arc dynamics by using the topological invariant of the system: correlation dimension and the higher Liapunov exponent.

    Deception Island shows a volcanism related to the Phoenix Plate subduction and roll-back under South Shetland Block in the present times. The development of the island is related to the evolution and collapse of a volcanic caldera, and this study is focused on the petrology, mineralogy and geochemistry of the post-caldera rocks. We have made a study of the lava flows, dikes and the youngest historic eruption in 1970. These rocks range from dacite to rhyolite and have a microporphyritic texture with olivine and minor clinopyroxene. A pre-caldera basaltic andesite has also been studied. It has a microporphyritic texture with clinopyroxene. The intermediate and acid compositions alternating in the volcanostratigraphic sequence suggest either mafic recharge events or melt extraction from different levels in the deep magmatic system. All the studied compositions share a subduction-related signature similar to other magmatics from the Bransfield Basin. However, compositional differences between pre-caldera and post-caldera rocks indicate a different magma source and depth of crystallisation. According to the geothermobarometric calculations the pre-caldera magmas started to crystallise at deeper levels (13.5-15 km) than the post-caldera magmas (6.2-7.8 km). Specifically, the postcaldera magmas indicate a smaller influence of the subducting slab in the southwestern part of the Bransfield Basin in respect to the available data from other sectors as well as the involvement of crustal contamination in the genesis of the magmas.

  6. Evolution of integrated panel structural design and interfaces for PV power plants

    Science.gov (United States)

    Arnett, J. C.; Anderson, A. J.; Robertson, R. E.

    1983-01-01

    The evolution of integrated photovoltaic (PV) panel design at ARCO Solar is discussed. Historically, framed PV modules of about 1 x 4-ft size were individually mounted in the field on fixed support structures and interconnected electrically with cables to build higher-power arrays. When ARCO Solar saw the opportunity in 1982 to marry its PV modules with state-of-the-art heliostat trackers developed by ARCO Power Systems, it became obvious that mounting individual modules was impractical. For this project, the framed modules were factory-assembled into panels and interconnected with cables before being mounted on the trackers. Since then, ARCO Solar made considerable progress and gained substantial experience in the design and fabrication of large PV panels. Constraints and criteria considered in these design activities included static and dynamic loads; assembly and transportation equipment and logistics, structural and electrical interfaces, and safety and grounding concerns.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Dezoito anos atrás, dois jovens pacientes, do sexo masculino, com 8 meses e 13 anos de vida, ambos com coarctação da aorta torácica associada à hipoplasia da aorta, entre a artéria subclávia esquerda e a área coarctada, foram submetidos à correção cirúrgica destas lesões por meio de uma nova e pioneira técnica cirúrgica desenvolvida por nós. MÉTODO: A técnica consiste na secção do canal arterial e ressecção de todo tecido coarctado da aorta, seguida por uma aortoplastia, utilizando-se de um retalho longitudinal de pericárdio vascularizado autógeno, implantado desde a saída da artéria subclávia até 2,0 cm abaixo da área coarctectomizada. Em ambos os casos, a pressão arterial sistêmica e os pulsos arteriais dos membros superiores e inferiores ficaram normais, imediatamente após a cirurgia até os dias de hoje. RESULTADOS: Os exames clínicos e de medidas com Doppler mostraram, respectivamente, nenhum gradiente pressórico braço/perna, assim como, demonstraram fluxo sanguíneo arterial normal e não gradiente arterial pressórico através da área coartectomizada. Ambos foram submetidos a rigorosas avaliações 18 anos após a cirurgia, incluindo cateterismo cardíaco e torácico aórtico, com aortografia, testes ergométricos e angiotomografia computadorizada aórtica. Essas avaliações mostraram uma configuração aórtica normal, com diâmetros transversos normais, inclusive nas regiões acima e abaixo da área coartectomizada. Não houve demonstração de qualquer forma de lesão degenerativa do retalho pericárdico pediculado implantado ao longo dos anos, assim como nenhuma identificação de lesão aneurismática, de sinais de lesão aterosclerótica no mesmo, ou de recoarctação. Mais importante, é que ficou evidente que o retalho pericárdico pediculado totalmente vascularizado, assim utilizado, é mantido vivo, e cresceu ao longo dos anos, tanto em seu diâmetro como em seu comprimento. CONCLUSÃO: A técnica do emprego do retalho pericárdico pediculado, vascularizado e autógeno é a mais adequada e a mais completa em comparação com todas as outras técnicas cirúrgicas existentes para correção dos diferentes tipos de coarctação da aorta torácica, nas suas formas simples ou associadas a outras lesões aórticas. É indicada em todas as faixas etárias, inclusive em recém-natos.OBJECTIVE: Eighteen years ago, two young male patients of 8 months and 13 years with aortic coarctation associated to aortic hypoplasia between the left subclavian artery and the coarctated area, were submitted to surgical correction using a new world-pioneering surgical technique developed in our service. METHOD: This technique consists of sectioning the patent ductus arteriosus, followed by resection of all the coarctated tissue in the aortic wall and aortoplasty correction by means of the lengthwise implantation of a pediculated autogenous pericardial flap. This flap is inserted into the thoracic aorta, from the root of the left subclavian artery to 2.0 cm below the coarctated area. RESULTS: For both patients, the blood pressure and arterial pulses of both arms and legs have been normal since the surgery until the present moment. Clinical examination and Doppler evaluation evidenced no pressure gradient between arms and legs, normal blood flow and no pressure gradient through the coarctated area. Both patients were submitted to other evaluations 18 years after surgery, including cardiac and thoracic aortic catheterization followed by aortography. These evaluations demonstrated normal aortic configuration, with normal diameter, including the areas above and below the coarctated site. There was no evidence of any kind of degenerative lesions of the vascularized pericardial flap or re-coarctation of the lesion and no signs of aneurysms forming or the presence of atherosclerosis of the flap. Moreover, and very importantly, it was evident that the pediculated completely vascularized autologous pericardial flap had been kept alive and had grown in diameter as well as in

    2014-05-01

    The EPSRC-funded Adaptation and Resilience of Coastal Energy Supply (ARCoES) project encompasses four research strands, involving 14 institutions and six PhD studentships. ARCoES aims to determine the threats posed to future energy generation and the distribution network by flooding and erosion, changing patterns of coastal sedimentation, water temperature and the distribution of plants and animals in the coastal zone. Whilst this research has direct benefits for the operation of coastal power stations, ARCoES aims to have a wider stakeholder engagement through assessing how the resilience of coastal communities may be altered by five hundred years of coastal evolution. Coastal evolution will have substantial implications for the energy sector of the North West of England as former waste storage sites are eroded and remobilised within the intertidal environment. The current intertidal environmental stores of radioactivity will also experience reworking as ocean chemistry changes and saltmarsh chronologies are reworked in response to rising sea levels. There is a duel requirement to understand mass sediment movement along the North West coast of England as understanding the sediment transport dynamics is key to modelling long term coastal change and understanding how the environmental store of radioactivity will be reworked. The University of Stirling is researching the long-term environmental and health implications of remobilisation and transport of contaminated sediments around the UK coastline. Using a synergy of hyperspectral and topographic information the mobilisation of sediment bound contaminants within the coastal environment will be investigated. Potential hazards posed by contaminants are determined by a set of environmental impact test criteria which evaluate the bio-accessibility and ionising dose of contaminants. These test criteria will be used to comment on the likely environmental impact of modelled sediment transport and anticipated changes in

    Full Text Available Objetivo: El propósito del presente estudio es determinar la forma de los arcos dentales, describir las diferencias en las dimensiones transversales y en profundidad de los arcos durante la dentición mixta, con el fin de conocer su incidencia en la disposición de la armonía oclusal en una población de escolares indígenas de Leticia, Amazonas, Colombia. Materiales y métodos: Se realizó un estudio descriptivo transversal donde se incluyeron 64 escolares, 32 niños y 32 niñas distribuidos en dos grupos: con dentición mixta temprana, 31 escolares y el grupo de dentición mixta tardía con 33 estudiantes entre 6 y 12 años. Las variables estudiadas fueron las medidas de los modelos de estudio. Resultados: El arco superior tuvo forma ovalada en 86% de la población y en 14% la forma fue cuadrada; para el arco inferior las formas fueron 75% ovaladas y 25% cuadradas. Casi todas las medidas transversales presentaron diferencias en ambos grupos, la distancia intercanina inferior se mantuvo constante. Las medidas en profundidad, anchura y longitud evidencian armonía en el desarrollo de los arcos en los niños amazónicos. Discusión: En este grupo étnico predominó el arco de forma ovalada, seguida de la forma cuadrada. Se encontraron diferencias para todas las medidas en profundidad del arco, principalmente en el sector anterior que sería el más susceptible a cambios por factores ambientales durante el período de la dentición mixta de transición. Conclusiones: La armonía oclusal de la población estudiada es el resultado de una forma de arco y cambios transversales y en profundidad fisiológicamente normales.
