    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

    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.

    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

    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. For this purpose several quality control checks are performed, at the expense, costs and production times are increased.

    Full Text Available Partindo da afirmação de que um melhor entendimento dos mecanismos físicos que regem os processos de soldagem pode ser traduzido em maiores níveis de consistência e produtividade destes processos, resta, então, investigar e estudar tais mecanismos. Dentre as diversas abordagens para a caracterização física do processo, o estudo do arco elétrico procura destacar a estabilidade do processo com base nos fenômenos envolvidos. De forma específica para a soldagem a arco, onde alta qualidade é requerida, o processo TIG se destaca. Focando-se mais ainda neste processo, um conjunto de parâmetros chama a atenção: corrente de 100 A e gás de proteção argônio puro. Estes valores atribuem ao arco uma característica especial de transição sob diferentes pontos de vista (característica estática, regime laminar-turbulento, dimensões do arco e queda de tensão anódica. Estas características são apresentadas e discutidas. Espera-se que esta discussão seja lançada como um desafio aos leitores da Revista Soldagem & Inspeção para que contribuam com seus pontos de vista e/ou mais informações, procurando consolidar o conhecimento do arco elétrico em processo não-consumível e que possa, ao final, reverter em resultados tecnológicos para melhor uso do processo.By stating that an improved understanding of the physical mechanisms controlling process performance can usually be translated into higher levels of consistency and productivity for that process, it is expected to investigate these mechanisms. Among the various approaches for process physical characterisation, the electric-arc study unveils the process stability from the related phenomena. Specifically for arc welding, which high quality levels are required, the TIG process outstands. Further looking into this process, a parameter set calls the attention: 100-A current and pure argon as shielding gas. These values attribute to the arc special transitional characteristics, such

    Full Text Available A metodologia apresentada neste trabalho se baseia em medições do teor de oxigênio na superfície do metal base, possibilitando assim, uma avaliação quantitativa da contaminação do gás de proteção. Os gases utilizados nos processos de soldagem definem as características do arco e protegem a poça de soldagem. A contaminação do gás, por exemplo, com o ar do meio ambiente, prejudica as propriedades da união soldada. A contaminação do gás de proteção não é somente dependente da qualidade do gás utilizado, como também tem que ser considerado os componentes contidos na tocha. Até agora, o nível da contaminação do gás produzido pela tocha tem sido analisado somente de forma empírica, avaliando a qualidade e forma do cordão de solda. A medição do oxigênio na superfície do metal de base é um método simples e preciso para analisar o nível de contaminação do gás de proteção. Este procedimento permite uma avaliação quantitativa, inclusive na presença do arco. No contexto deste trabalho se apresentará por meio de exemplos em tochas TIG e MIG/MAG as possibilidades da utilização desta metodologia para o desenvolvimento e análise de processos de soldagem a arco.The method presented in this paper is based on the measurement of oxygen on the surface of the base metal to enable a quantitative assessment of the contamination in the shielding gas. The gas used in arc processes affected arc properties and simultaneously protected the welding pool. The contamination of the shielding gases, e.g. with atmospheric air, damages the properties of the weld joint. The contamination in the shielding gas is not only dependent on the purity of the utilized gas, but also on the components of the welding torch. The level of contamination in the gas produced by the torch had been analyzed so far only by empirical evaluation of the quality and appearance of the welding seam. The measurement of oxygen on the surface of the base

    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.

    PWR reactors employ, as nuclear fuel, UO{sub 2} pellets with Zircaloy clad. In the fabrication of fuel element parts, machining chips from the alloys are generated. As the Zircaloy chips cannot be discarded as ordinary metallic waste, the recycling of this material is important for the Brazilian Nuclear Policy, which targets the reprocess of Zircaloy residues for economic and environmental aspects. This work presents two methods developed in order to recycle Zircaloy chips. In one of the methods, Zircaloy machining chips were refused using an electric-arc furnace to obtain small laboratory ingots. The second one uses powder metallurgy techniques, where the chips were submitted to hydriding process and the resulting material was milled, isostatically pressed and vacuum sintered. The ingots were heat-treated by vacuum annealing. The microstructures resulting from both processing methods were characterized using optical and scanning electron microscopy. Chemical composition, crystal phases and hardness were also determined. The results showed that the composition of recycled Zircaloy comply with the chemical specifications and presented adequate microstructure for nuclear use. The good results of the powder metallurgy method suggest the possibility of producing small parts, like cladding end-caps, using near net shape sintering. (author)

    In this work the influence of the arc thermal spraying process on the microstructure, oxide volumetric fraction, porosity and cavitation resistance was studied. The characterization was performed by optical and electrical microscopy, microhardness and ultrasonic cavitation test, ASTM G32-96 in AS895HY cobalt stainless steel. The increase in air pressure, 280 to 410 kPa, modified the oxide fraction from 17,2 +- 3,6% to 10,9 +-1,8%, in the samples without pre-heating treatment. With 120 deg C pre-heating treatment the oxide fraction increase from 24,1 +- 2,8% to 12,8 +- 1,9% when the air pressure was modified from 280 to 550 kPa. The mass loss in vibration-induced cavitation were 1,55 and 1,42 mg/h for 410 kPa AS895HY samples, with and without pre heating treatment, and 2,12 mg/h for 280 kPa samples without pre heating treatment. The results showed that the process parameters modified the microstructure and the cavitation resistance of the arc thermal spraying coatings. (author)

    Based on historical evaluations in 1993 and 1997, historians determined that the then-remaining Arco NPG structures were significant to the nation’s history through their association with World War II . Through ensuing discussions with the SHPO, it was further determined that the infrastructure and associated landscape were also significant. According to provisions of INL’s Cultural Resource Management Plan (CRMP) as legitimized through a 2004 Programmatic Agreement between DOE-ID, the Idaho State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO), and Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) historians identified the World War II structures as DOE “Signature Properties”. As defined by DOE-HQ, Signature Properties “denote its [DOE’s] most historically important properties across the complex…and/or those properties that are viewed as having tourism potential.” The INL is a secure site and the INL land and structures are not accessible to the public and, therefore have no “tourism potential”. Although DOE-ID actively sought other uses for the vacant, unused buildings, none were identified and the buildings present safety and health concerns. A condition assessment found lead based paint, asbestos, rodent infestation/droppings, small animal carcasses, mold, and, in CF-633, areas of radiological contamination. In early 2013, DOE-ID notified the Idaho SHPO, ACHP, and, as required by the INL CRMP and PA, DOE-Headquarters Federal Preservation Officer, of their intent to demolish the vacant buildings (CF-606, CF-607, CF-613, CF-632, and CF-633).

    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.

    Full Text Available Resumo: O preá é um roedor típico da caatinga pertencente à família Caviidae. Considerando a inexistência de dados sobre o arco aórtico do preá, foi realizado este estudo tendo como objetivo descrever os ramos colaterais do arco aórtico neste cavídeo, e dessa forma, contribuir com dados para biologia da espécie. Foram utilizados vinte preás machos provenientes de estudos anteriores e encontravam-se armazenados em freezer no Centro de Multiplicação de Animais Silvestres (CEMAS/UFERSA. Os animais foram descongelados, a cavidade torácica foi aberta, a aorta canulada e o sistema vascular lavado com solução salina e em seguida, injetado látex Neoprene corado com pigmento vermelho, amarelo ou branco. Posteriormente, os animais foram fixados em formol e depois de 72 horas, dissecados e analisados, sendo obtidos desenhos esquemáticos e os exemplares mais representativos fotografados. O arco aórtico do preá emitiu como ramos colaterais, o tronco braquiocefálico e a artéria subclávia esquerda. O tronco braquiocefálico originou na maioria das peças estudadas, a artéria carótida comum esquerda e o tronco braquiocarotídeo, do qual surgem as artérias subclávia direita e carótida comum direita. As artérias subclávias direita e esquerda em todos os animais estudados emitiram a artéria vertebral, a artéria torácica interna, a artéria cervical superficial, o tronco costocervical e a artéria axilar. O padrão da formação do arco aórtico do preá assemelhou-se ao observado em outros roedores, tais como no mocó, no porquinho-da-índia e na chinchila.

Mulher, 60 anos, procurou atendimento na clínica médica apresentando 1 ano de história de disfagia, 6 meses de dispneia e 2 meses de dor torácica esporádica. 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.

  4. Provenance and sedimentary analysis of the basal portion of the Bambuí Group at Arcos (MG

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available The origin and evolution of Bambuí Basin has been a matter of debate, in much intensified by the recent exploratory efforts carried out by public and private companies looking for natural gas. In the southeastern portion of the basin there are rare opportunities to access the contact between the sedimentary rocks and its basement, whose characteristics are crucial to understanding the processes of basin installation and the early sedimentation. The analysis of drill cores allowed us to describe the lowermost Bambuí Group in Arcos (MG region, including its basement. The sampled section displays as basement an archean granodiorite (ca. 2.8 – 2.9 Ga, fractured at the time of sedimentation. The Bambuí Group basal unit is dm-thick, massive lodgment tillite. Grains of zircon separated from the tillite matrix were dated and show a main age peak at ca. 2.8 Ga, indicating provenance from the own basement. On the tillite rests an impure limestone that passes gradually to a muddy unit, in a retrogradational filling trend. Terrigenous fragments in the impure limestone suggests that the basement has continued to be a source of sediments in the bottom of the section. The pelitic rocks that occurs to the top has a litochemical signature compatible with acidic source rocks, and shows Sm-Nd model ages of 1.7 Ga. These data suggests that rocks from the Brasília Belt have acted as a source for the pelitic rocks, supporting the interpretation of a foreland set for the basin.

  5. Non-Linear MDT Drift Gases like Ar/CO2

    CERN Document Server

    Aleksa, Martin

    1998-01-01

    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.

    Gianturco, F. A.; Paesani, F.

    2001-07-01

    The full three-variable potential-energy surface for the Ar-CO complex, V(R,θ,rCO), has been calculated using a recently developed scheme which combines density-functional theory (DFT) with the long-range dispersion contributions obtained from perturbation theory. The two adiabatic surfaces given by integration of the full potential over the vibrational coordinate of CO have been then used to calculate the bound states of the van der Waals complex for both vCO=0 and vCO=1. Calculations of the wave functions and of the frequencies of various rotational and rovibrational transitions provide overall good agreement both with the experiments and with the results obtained using the most recent, and more computationally demanding, potential-energy surfaces for the title system.

La adición decaliza se realizó manteniendo constante la relación porcentualMnO/SiO2 del sistema de óxidos del fundente. Con el aumento de labasicidad se logró intensificar la actividad termodinámica del MnO ydisminuir la del SiO2, favoreciéndose la transferencia del manganeso al metal depositado, a la vez que se atenúa la del silicio, el azufre, el fósforo y el carbono permanece prácticamente inalterable. Esto posibilita el empleo de un alambre de bajo manganeso durante lasoldadura de aceros de baja aleación con proceso SAW.

    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.

    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. Seguimento médio de 16,9±17,2 meses com sucesso clínico a médio prazo de 75%. Zona 2. Comprimento do colo proximal: 30±5 mm.

    Full Text Available In this article we study the finds of arrowheads, the iconographic representation of bows, and the literary references to the use of archery in the period between the first Phoenician settlements and the Roman conquest of the Iberian Peninsula. With the help of explicit parallels from other Mediterranean cultures, we shall try to explain the absence of bows and arrows in the Iberian period. Our hypothesis is that the Iberians considered the bow to be an effeminate and cowardly weapon, unworthy of aristocratic warriors. This would explain the absence of this weapon in grave goods and artistic representations.

    En este trabajo estudiamos los hallazgos de puntas de flecha, de representaciones iconográficas del arco y de referencias literarias a la utilización de este arma en el periodo comprendido entre las primeras colonias fenicias y la conquista romana de la Península Ibérica. Se busca, con el apoyo en paralelos explícitos en otras culturas mediterráneas, una explicación a la casi total ausencia del arco y las flechas en época ibérica. Nuestra hipótesis es que hay entre los iberos un menosprecio del arco como arma innoble e indigna de guerreros aristocráticos, lo que explica su ausencia en ajuares funerarios y representaciones iconográficas.

    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.

From the nine proposed calderas only the Pino Hachado caldera has been studied in detail. The Meseta del Arco and Nacimientos del Aluminé are disregarded as calderas. The erosional genesis of the steep scarps previously interpreted as caldera margins is also identified with glacial erosion. Facies and types of the local Pleistocene glaciation, its extension, their flow direction and its quite probable diffluence (Paso del Arco through coeval glaciers situated north of the international border are also analyzed. Local characteristics of volcanic and eolian morphogenic and the mass-wasting process are described. Brief comments about pre-glacial drainage and the previous proposal of Bío Bío-Aluminé trough on the region are added. Transversal topographic-geological profiles discard west of the Bío Bío-Aluminé Fault a structural unit related to tectonic depression of Bío Bío-Aluminé trough and the Nacimientos del Aluminé and Moquehue calderas.

    A potential energy surface is retrieved for the Ar-CO complex by carrying out a global analysis of its high-resolution spectroscopic data. The data set consists of already published microwave and infrared data and of new microwave transitions which are presented in the paper. The theoretical approach used to reproduce the spectrum is based on a model Hamiltonian which accounts simultaneously for the two large amplitude van der Waals modes and for the overall rotation of the complex. Only the vCO=0 state is considered. The root-mean-square deviation of the analysis is 18 MHz for the microwave data and 1.4×10-3 cm-1 for the infrared energy difference data. Fifteen parameters corresponding to the potential energy function are determined in addition to two kinetic energy parameters and two distortion-type parameters. The potential energy surface derived is in good agreement with the one obtained by Shin, Shin, and Tao [J. Chem. Phys. 104, 183 (1996)].

    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 Physical properties of gases as density, thermal and electric conductivity and ionization potential determine, to a great extent, the operational characteristics of welding arcs. These properties can vary strongly for different gases. As a result, arc voltage, heat output, mean radius, thermal profile, efficiency and other are characteristics that influence bead geometry (shape, depth, etc. depend on chemical composition of the shielding gas. Complex physical models have being proposed to explain and to quantify the effects of shielding gas chemical composition on the welding are performance. The influence of are atmosphere can also be readily observed empirically. However, only changes in arc operational parameters and weld bead geometry due to variations in gas composition are well registered in the literature. In this work, an optical study of the gas tungsten are is presented, based on a digital system for image capture and welding parameters register, during are operation. The results were related to physical properties of gases and mixtures used and models in literature.

    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.

    Full Text Available Entre 1799 e 1801, funcionou em Lisboa a Casa Literária do Arco do Cego. Voltada para a publicação de obras científicas e didáticas ligadas à aplicação das ciências naturais, a Arco do Cego foi dirigida pelo frei José Mariano da Conceição Veloso, naturalista brasileiro e tradutor incansável. Para realizar o objetivo de trazer o progresso para o reino português por meio da instrução, as atividades da Arco do Cego ocorreram dentro de um sistema de mecenato em que a coroa portuguesa arcava com as despesas dos projetos. 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.

    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 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.

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 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.

    Leandro J. da Silva

    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.

    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.

    Full Text Available Resumo: O cachorro-do-mato (Cerdocyon thous pertence à família Canidae, encontra-se amplamente distribuído pela América do Sul. Devido à escassez literária a respeito da morfologia desta espécie objetivamos colaborar com o conhecimento da anatomia do arco aórtico e seus ramos colaterais. Foram estudados quatro animais, sendo 2 machos e 2 fêmeas oriundos da Mina de Bauxita, Paragominas, Pará, Brasil/Terra Ltda, sob autorização da SEMA-PA nº 455/2009, que morreram por causas naturais. O sistema arterial foi preenchido com látex corado em vermelho e fixado em solução aquosa de formoldeído 10%. O arco aórtico de Cerdocyon thous apresentou em sua origem apenas dois vasos, o tronco braquiocefálico e a artéria subclávia esquerda. Do tronco braquiocefálico originou-se o tronco bicarotídeo, que se bifurcou nas artérias carótidas comum direita e esquerda, e artéria subclávia direita. Das artérias subclávias ocorreu a formação do tronco costocervical, artéria vertebral, artéria torácica interna, artéria cervical superficial e ao atingir o espaço axilar passa a ser chamada de artéria axilar em ambos os antímeros. Concluímos que o arco aórtico de Cerdocyon thous é similar ao de outros animais domésticos com relação ao número de ramificações em sua origem.

    1997-09-01

    We show that in the simple case of van der Waals ionic clusters, the optimisation of orbitals within VB can be easily simulated with the help of pseudopotentials. The procedure yields the ground and the first excited states of the cluster simultaneously. This makes the calculation of potential energy surfaces for tri- and tetraatomic clusters possible, with very acceptable computation times. We give potential curves for (ArCO) +, (ArN 2) + and N 4+. An application to the simulation of the SCF method is shown for Na +H 2O.

    Este trabalho retrata a continuidade de uma pesquisa de doutorado voltada para a utilização de modelos de fluxo em redes na resolução de problemas de programação de veículos (de ônibus, em particular. Nesta etapa do trabalho foi aplicada a técnica de Geração de Arcos ao modelo de pseudo-designação para se obter uma representação eficiente de problemas reais, apoiada na utilização do algoritmo out-of- kilter para otimização de fluxo em redes. Com esta abordagem foi possível reduzir o número de arcos da rede, reduzir o tempo de resolução e ainda incluir restrições práticas, tornando o modelo mais adequado à realidade. A metodologia apresentada foi testada em problemas reais das cidades de Reading - Reino Unido e Sorocaba Brasil, e os resultados foram comparados com aqueles produzidos pelo sistema heurístico BOOST, desenvolvido pelo grupo de programação de veículos e tripulação da Universidade de Leeds no Reino Unido.

    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 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.

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.

    The primary objective of this research work is two-fold: (i) determine the degradation rates of Siemens-Arco M55 modules exposed over 18 and 28 years in a hot-dry climate of Arizona and a temperate climate of California, and; (ii) identify the potential modes responsible for these degradation losses. The degradation rates were determined based on the I-V data obtained on exposed modules and on the corresponding control modules which were not exposed in the fields. The degradation modes responsible for these degradations were determined using several nondestructive tests and destructive tests performed on these control and exposed modules. The nondestructive tests included: current-voltage, visual inspection, cell-module quantum efficiency, and module level reflectance spectroscopy. The destructive tests included: transmittance spectroscopy of glass superstrates, and FTIR, DSC and TGA of encapsulant materials.

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. La Formación Balbuena pertenecería al último de los eventos magmáticos importantes del ciclo Pampeano propuestos para la región.

Sus representantes volcánicos mayoritarios, lavas basálticas y en menor medida dacíticas, fragmentadas, autoclásticas e hialoclastitas indican el predominio de un volcanismo efusivo subácueo. Mientras tanto el elevado volumen de depósitos volcaniclásticos asociados, especialmente en los tramos superiores, generados por flujos gravitacionales en masa, ya sea por corrientes de turbidez, como por flujos de detritos y vinculados con episodios de sedimentación sin-volcánicos, evidencian la eficiencia de los procesos de fragmentación y de la erosión recurrente durante la evolución de esta cuenca ordovícica. El contenido fosilífero en las facies volcanogénicas y las asociaciones de limolitas, fangolitas y psamitas finas con abundante material de origen piroclástico y lapilli acrecional, atestiguan en favor de un ambiente somero para su depositación.

    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.

    Se presentó un Modelo Matemático que describe la dinámica de la enfermedad de las branquias producida por la bacteria Flexibacter branchiophilus en la trucha arco iris Oncorhynchus mykiss. La interpretación se hace mediante tres ecuaciones diferenciales lineales ordinarias. Se incluye la tasa de mortalidad por la enfermedad, porcentaje de peces infectados que por tratamiento regresan a ser sanos y porcentaje de peces sanos que adquieren la enfermedad. En ausencia o presencia de la enfermedad y variando el tratamiento presenta un comportamiento comparable a las condiciones naturales de los cultivos truchícolas. Con tratamientos de alta efectividad las mortalidades se estabilizan a un nivel mínimo de perdida, locontrario con tratamientos de baja efectividad, los cuales permiten el incremento de la mortalidad a niveles de pérdida de la población casi a la totalidad. Se analiza además, el tiempo de vida medio de la población.

    D. L. N. F. Amorim

    Full Text Available A simulação consistente de processos de falha progressiva e colapso estrutural ainda é um problema aberto de grande interesse para a engenharia. Dentre as teorias que são capazes de modelar de alguma forma tal classe de problemas, a mecânica do dano contínuo é a maisrecente. Entretanto, um dos gargalos que ainda persistem é quando nas simulações numéricas a estrutura passa a apresentar o fenômenode localização de deformações, com consequente dependência dos resultados sobre a malha empregada. Para sanar este problema diversosmétodos ditos de regularização foram desenvolvidos. Todavia, apesar de eficazes, estes métodos podem inserir um grau de complexidadesignificativo nas abordagens numéricas. Neste trabalho propõe-se uma metodologia simplificada para análise estrutural não linear de pórticose arcos por meio da localização prévia dos fenômenos inelásticos em rótulas, posicionadas nas extremidades dos elementos finitos de barra earco. Desta forma é possível contornar a dependência de malha e reproduzir de forma satisfatória problemas reais, como mostram os exemplos de estruturas de concreto armado reunidos no fim deste artigo.

Destacamos tais aspectos na Rainbow Fest em Juiz de Fora (MG, na qualocorrem, além da parada, palestras, shows com artistas e DJs, exposições, peças teatrais e exibição de filmes com temática LGBT. Durante a semana da Rainbow Fest, notamos que a cidade aparentemente “se veste” com as cores do arco-íris, e espaços regidos pela égide da heteronormatividade rompem com tal padrão e agregam símbolos da cultura LGBT. As reflexões, portanto, abordam a Rainbow Fest juizforana e suas relações com a cidade, examinando a maneira como liberdade e diversidade, permeadas de excessos, demarcam aespacialidade festiva. Metodologicamente, foram consultados material bibliográfico e reportagens de jornais locais, e realizou-se o trabalho de campo com emprego de entrevistas e tomadas de fotografias.

    Full Text Available A madeira de pau-brasil (Caesalpinia echinata Lam. é mundialmente empregada na confecção de arcos para instrumentos de corda, uma vez que apresenta características únicas de ressonância, densidade, durabilidade, beleza, entre outras qualidades, que a tornam ideal para tal uso. Diferentes amostras de pau-brasil, contudo, fornecem arcos com qualidades distintas. No comércio nacional outras madeiras estão sendo empregadas na produção de arcos. Realizou-se, neste estudo, uma análise qualitativa e quantitativa de diferentes amostras de pau-brasil com o objetivo de apontar diferenças na estrutura da madeira que possam contribuir para o entendimento das causas da variação na qualidade do arco, além da análise de outras espécies objetivando determinar, do ponto de vista estrutural, semelhanças ou diferenças com o pau-brasil. Conclui-se que variações no diâmetro dos vasos, distribuição e quantidade de parênquima axial e orientação dos elementos axiais e radiais são parâmetros que devem ser considerados quando se busca determinar as causas das diferenças na qualidade dos arcos de pau-brasil. Constatou-se que arcos de boa qualidade apresentam grã linheira e textura fina. Esta última característica decorre da menor proporção de vasos cujo diâmetro é reduzido, raios homogêneos e fibras com paredes espessas e/ou muito espessas. Assim, a relação entre a estrutura e a qualidade do arco está diretamente relacionada com as dimensões, a distribuição e a proporção das células do lenho.Pernambuco wood (Caesalpinia echinata Lam. has special characteristics like resonance, density, durability, and beauty; for this reason, it is considered the best material for stringed instruments bows. Besides pernambuco wood has been used around the world, some samples, and consequently some bows, are better than others. In Brazil, others woody species have been used in the manufacture of bows.

    Full Text Available 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 intercritical region instead of in the grain coarse region as it would correspond. This circumstance make advisable to carry out a metallographic study of the intercritical zone in the HAZ as well as the corresponding tests, in order analyze the intercritical 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

    La falta de cumplimiento de las normas BS 5762 y EEMUA, en considerables casos, invalida los ensayos de mecánica de la fractura, al no encontrarse la grieta en la región de grano grueso a 0,5 mm de la línea de fusión, así como en la cantidad expresada en porcentaje de longitud de grieta que atraviesa la región intercrítica, en lugar de hacerlo en la región de grano grueso. Esta circunstancia, conduce a realizar un estudio metalográfico de dicha región intercrítica de la zona afectada térmicamente así como los correspondientes ensayos, con objeto de analizar las causas de su fragilidad.

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.

    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

    Full Text Available É relatado um caso de aneurisma de ducto arterioso, com diagnóstico pré-natal, o que é muito raro, numa gestante com 33 semanas, onde o feto apresentou uma dilatação aneurismática do canal arterial, com calibre uniformemente aumentado, inserindo-se na aorta descendente, associado à interrupção do arco aórtico. 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.

    Nesse trabalho é apresentado um estudo do conteúdo de massa do aglomerado de galáxias A586 (z = 0.171) bem como sua distribuição espacial. Isso foi feito a partir de dados de espectroscopia multi-objeto e imageamento obtidos com o instrumento GMOS acoplado ao telescópio Gemini-Norte. A massa desse aglomerado foi estudada a partir da posição dos seus arcos gravitacionais (lentes fortes), da medida estatística da distorção na forma das galáxias de fundo (lentes fracas) e através da dispersão de velocidades de uma amostra de cerca de 30 galáxias pertencentes ao aglomerado (teorema do virial). Os dois primeiros métodos não dependem do estado dinâmico do aglomerado, enquanto que o terceiro sim. Desse modo, comparando seus resultados pode-se estimar o grau de relaxamento desse sistema. Dados de raios X presentes na literatura também serão incluídos nessa análise. Nossos resultados preliminares a partir das técnicas de lentes fracas, mostram que, supondo que a distribuição de massa desse aglomerado seja a de uma esfera isotérmica, espera-se que ele apresente uma dispersão de velocidades de 1330+/-78 km s-1, em contradicao com medidas similares feitas por Dahle et al. 2002 que encontram valores tão altos quanto 1680 km s-1. Já o estudo dinâmico resultou numa dispersão de velocidades de ~950 km s-1.

    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.

    Full Text Available INTRODUÇÃO: em alguns casos, a extração de pré-molares torna-se necessária e nem sempre os espaços são completamente fechados após o alinhamento e nivelamento. O arco de dupla chave, ou Double Key Loop (DKL, é um arco retangular de aço para retração, com duas alças - uma mesial e outra distal ao canino. OBJETIVOS: este trabalho propôs-se a estudar o local onde a força é exercida, após a ativação desse arco, utilizando ativação na alça distal, ativação entre as alças e na alça distal, e ativação com Gurin®. MÉTODOS: foram montados nove modelos fotoelásticos de um arco dentário inferior, sem os primeiros pré-molares e os terceiros molares, com braquetes In-Ovation e arco DKL. O arco foi ativado e a região de incisivos, caninos e dentes posteriores foi fotografada, com interposição de filtros polarizadores de luz. RESULTADOS E CONCLUSÕES: após a análise do modelo fotoelástico, concluiu-se que a ativação com Gurin® pode produzir movimento de retração anterior com componente extrusivo; a ativação na alça distal pode produzir movimento de retração anterior sem componente extrusivo; e a ativação entre as alças e na alça distal pode produzir movimento de retração anterior com componente intrusivo.INTRODUCTION: There are clinical situations in which the extraction of bicuspids becomes necessary and, eventually, the extraction spaces are completely closed after aligning and leveling the teeth.

    Full Text Available O objetivo do presente trabalho é propor um modelo global para descrever o fluxo de calor em soldagem a arco, visando o entendimento dos fenômenos relacionados com o fluxo de calor. A tentativa é suprir uma lacuna do conhecimento gerado entre a aplicação de modelos analíticos simplificados (não totalmente realistas e de modelos numéricos (que mascaram a visão física dos fenômenos. Inicia-se propondo uma descrição mais física para a razão da queda de tensão num arco, baseada na geração e perda de calor para se manter o equilíbrio da desionização e reionização, em contraste com a abordagem em que o arco é comparável a um resistor elétrico. Em seguida, se propõe um modelo descritivo da subsistência térmica de um arco, para qualificar as formas de transferência de calor do arco para a chapa. Um segundo modelo descritivo é então proposto para explicar como o calor entra, difunde e sai da chapa durante a soldagem. Finalmente, é discutido como a aplicação destes dois modelos de forma global permite entender que nem todo o fluxo de calor do arco para a chapa vai afetar a velocidade de resfriamento nas regiões do material aquecidas. Culmina-se com a proposta do emprego do termo Calor Imposto Efetivo como meio de evidenciar o parâmetro de calor de importância a ser determinado em soldagem.The objective of the present paper is to propose a global model for describing heat flow in arc welding, aiming the understanding of the phenomena involved.

    Full Text Available 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 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 GTAWprocess. 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.

    The aim of this article is to describe the internal arc phenomenon, an extremely fast, almost explosive and unattended process of transformation form an initial electric power to the generation of a pressure and heat wave inside the medium its produced its consequences for safety, current methods of limiting them and current regulations in general for equipment used in medium-voltage electrical distribution networks. Taking into account that this type of equipment is found thought the distribution network in both public buildings and unrestricted access areas, safety (of operators and the general public) must be taken into account in the design of equipment and installations to minimize the risk of internal arcs occurring. This is the gist of, for example, ITC 16 of the Spanish Regulation on Power Plants and transformer substations. In addition to the construction aspects specific to each device in which the manufacturer has to takes steps to minimize the risks of an internal arcs occurring. This is the gist of, for example, ITC 16 of the Spanish Regulation on Power Plants and transformer substations. In addition to the construction aspects specific to each device in which an internal arc occurring, it is understood to be vitally important that users, installers and designers of Medium Voltage installations are familiar with the installation conditions stated by the manufacturer and thus avoid risks.

    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.

    Full Text Available INTRODUÇÃO: a existência de pacientes com arcos dentários e anatomias diferentes dos diagramas de arcos ortodônticos preestabelecidos justifica este trabalho. OBJETIVO: foi proposto mostrar um método de construção de arcos ortodônticos que respeitasse a anatomia individual de cada paciente e que fosse construído sem a necessidade de diagramas impressos pré-desenhados. MÉTODOS: em vinte modelos inferiores de gesso, foram colados, no centro da coroa clínica dos seus dentes, braquetes e tubos. Com o auxílio de um paquímetro digital associado a um aparelho que posicionou os modelos com o plano oclusal paralelo ao solo, foi possível medir a distância da ponta de cúspide e meio da face incisal de cada dente até o fundo da canaleta do respectivo braquete e tubo colado. De posse dessas medidas, foram realizadas impressões das cúspides dentárias dos modelos em uma lâmina de cera 7 e, a partir dessas cúspides, pontuou-se a cera usando a distância obtida (entre a ponta de cúspide/meio da incisal dos dentes e a canaleta do braquete/entrada do tubo. Esses novos pontos serviram de referência para a construção dos arcos ortodônticos individualizados. RESULTADOS E CONCLUSÃO: esse método de construção foi denominado "arcograma", o qual foi comparado com um método pré-conformado de diagramação ("Tru-arch", sendo considerado melhor que esse no tocante à adaptação à anatomia individual do arco.INTRODUCTION: The existence of exceptional anatomic dental arches justifies this work.

    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.

    Full Text Available Processos erosivos representam um risco para as áreas urbanizadas próximas à linha de costa. 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.

MÉTODOS: foram utilizados 70 modelos inferiores nos quais se mediu a profundidade da curva de Spee e o perímetro do arco (de segundo molar a segundo molar. Nos mesmos modelos, após a simulação do nivelamento da curva de Spee, o perímetro de arco foi novamente avaliado, mantendo sua forma e comprimento. RESULTADOS: foi confirmada a correlação entre a profundidade da curva de Spee e o perímetro de arco adicional, sendo deduzida a fórmula [Paa = 0,21 CSmax - 0,04]. CONCLUSÃO: a técnica proposta permitiu, através da avaliação do perímetro de arco com curva de Spee nivelada, a determinação do espaço disponível para o alinhamento dentário.AIM: To determine the additional arch perimeter needed for leveling the curve of Spee by means of a laboratory technique using dental casts. METHODS: Seventy lower dental models were used for measuring the depth of the curve of Spee and assessing the arch perimeter from second molar to second molar. In these dental casts, after simulation of leveling the curve of Spee, arch perimeter was reevaluated, after maintaining its form and length. RESULTS: The correlation between the depth of the curve of Spee and the additional arch perimeter was ratified, as can be shown by the formula [Paa = 0,21 CSmax - 0,04]. CONCLUSION: The proposed technique allowed, through the assessment of the arch perimeter with the leveled curve of Spee, the determination of the space available for tooth alignment.

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. Conclui-se que as percepções dos alunos e os sentidos que atribuem ao Programa refletem as contradições da política, indicando que os jovens não são somente receptores passivos, mas sujeitos de direitos e protagonistas que reivindicam uma formação que atenda aos seus interesses.This article aims to analyze the students' expectations with regard to the vocational training courses provided under the "Projovem Trabalhador" occupational health arch, in Rio de Janeiro, the educational concepts and strategies used in the courses, and the changes that took place in their social situation in the educational, economic, psychosocial and socio-political dimensions.

    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 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 Resumo Depósitos de escarnitos mineralizados em W-Mo da Província Borborema são conhecidos desde os anos 40. Entretanto, até a execução deste trabalho, não se tinha registros desses depósitos mineralizados em Fe-Cu. No Ceará, as primeiras ocorrências e/ou depósitos de escarnitos ricos em ferro e cobre foram identificadas recentemente no Arco Magmático Continental de Santa Quitéria, considerado produto de evolução de vários arcos magmáticos, variando de arco juvenil (870 - 800 Ma a colisão continental (625 - 600 Ma. Os escarnitos estão associados às rochas calcissilicáticas e mármores dolomíticos e/ou calcíticos, recortadas por quartzo monzonitos neoproterozóicos cedo a tardi-colisionais. São encontrados todos os tipos do sistema escarnítico como endoescarnitos, hornfels, escarnóides e exoescarnitos. Os exoescarnitos apresentam duas associações minerais, que refletem protólitos carbonáticos distintos: uma composta por clinopiroxênio-granada (estágio progradante e magnetita-pirrotita-calcopirita-pirita-biotita (estágio retrogradante, característica de protólito calcítico, e outra formada por olivina-espinélio-diopsidio na fase progradante e serpentina na fase retrogradante, representativa de protólito dolomítico. As granadas, em parte zonadas, exibem composição dominada por andradita (82 - 52 mol%, seguida por grossularita (16 - 45mol% e, em proporção menor, piropo (2 - 3 mol%. O piroxênio do protólito calcítico é típico da série diopsídio-hedenbergita, com composição média Diopsídio46Hedenbergita52Johannsenita2. Três tipos de minério magnetítico são encontrados: i magnetito bandado; ii magnetito disseminado; iii magnetito maciço filoneano. Ocorre ainda um minério sulfetado de cobre com e sem magnetita associado, e blocos de gossans. Os dados geológicos e metalogenéticos obtidos indicam que a gênese destes escarnitos está associada à influência dos granitos monzoníticos tardi

    2010-12-01

    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.

    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 bends with the concavity facing down (overbends as they are known in the pipeline construction business), in pipelines carrying hot products, have the tendency to break the soil and to emerge to the surface by a thermal expansion effect. A simple and safe process, to stabilize such bends is to use as model for the analysis of its equilibrium the analogy with the parabolic arch submitted to an uniformly distributed load (earth weight) along the span. The flat parabolic arches keep great profile similarity with the circumference arches of most of the bends found in pipelines, and its balance can be solved through relatively simple formulas, unlike what it happens with the circular arches. Starting from the thermal expansion and internal pressure loads, imposed to the bend by the adjoining tubular sections, it is studied in this work, starting from the conditions of a parabolic arch, the maximum allowable curvature so that a overbend can stay stabilized under a certain soil layer depth.

    Full Text Available An industrial study was conducted in electric arc furnaces (EAF employing 100% direct reduced iron to evaluate the oxidation level of the slag-metal system. Energy consumption is decreased by injecting gaseous oxygen, however, slag oxidation also increases. 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.

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 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.

Existem variadas opções em configurações de circuitos elétricos para aquecer o arame de adição no processo TIG Hot-Wire, entre elas podemos destacar a utilização da corrente contínua pulsada e a corrente alternada. No presente trabalho foi utilizada a corrente contínua constante e foram estudadas duas configurações do circuito elétrico para aquecer o material de adição, as quais em teoria provocam diferentes comportamentos no arco voltaico e, portanto, nas propriedades geométricas do cordão de solda. Uma primeira análise realizada sobre o arco voltaico demonstra que se forma um sopro mágnetico constante ao se aquecer o arame com corrente contínua constante. Segundo os ensaios realizados, a direção do sopro magnético depende da polaridade da corrente para aquecer o arame. Uma análise macrográfica dos cordões de solda obtidos demonstraram que os melhores resultados foram para os ensaios feitos com Hot-Wire, conseguindo diluições de até um 2% aproximadamente para uma velocidade de arame de 7,5 m/min, 1 kW de potência de aquecimento do arame e usando uma velocidade de soldagem de 30 cm/min.

    Full Text Available La geología de la sierra de Chávez está constituida por rocas ígneas y metamórficas intercaladas complejamente a todas las escalas, y corresponderían a la unidad máfica definida en la sierra de Valle Fértil. Cinco asociaciones litológicas han sido identificadas en éste complejo: diorítica, gábrica, metasedimentaria, milonítica y granítica-pegmatítica. Las estimaciones termobarométricas realizadas en las migmatitas indican condiciones de equilibrio para el pico metamórfico (M1 de 876 °C y 8,3 Kbar y reflejarían el efecto del magmatismo durante el Ordovícico Temprano (489 - 470 Ma. Las presiones aquí estimadas corresponden a las mayores paleo-profundidades reconocidas en todo el arco magmático Famatiniano. Las relaciones de campo y el análisis estructural permitieron establecer la presencia de varias fábricas magmáticas y tectónicas, las cuales son: i estructuras magmáticas (S0 interpretadas como una foliación magmática primaria, ii foliación submagmática a subsólida de alta temperatura y foliación metamórfica (S1, iii foliación milonítica estabilizada en facies de anfibolita (S2a y esquistos verdes (S2b y iv foliación frágil (S3 definida como un clivaje de fractura centimétrico. (S0 y (S1 están asociadas al primer estadío de deformación (D1 reconocido en la zona, desarrollado en condiciones de alta temperatura (facies de granulita y coetáneo con el magmatismo y el pico metamórfico (M1. (S2a,b y (S3 transponen a las estructuras ígneas y metamórficas generadas durante el evento D1, y se asocian a un segundo y tercer estadío de deformación (D2-D3, representando una evolución progresiva de la deformación desde dominios dúctiles a frágiles, vinculadas a las etapas de cierre y exhumación del arco Famatiniano.

    Full Text Available Se realizó un estudio para obtener información acerca de la relación existente entre el cuadro clínico-patológico desarrollado en crías de trucha arco iris (Oncorhynchus mykiss infectadas con el virus de la necrosis pancreática infecciosa (IPNV y el nivel de inmunoglobulina M (IgM en suero sanguíneo. Los parámetros fueron determinados hasta 45 días postinfección (dpi en peces inoculados por vía intraperitoneal (IP con 1X10(4 TCDI de IPNV o únicamente inoculados con Medio Mínimo Esencial (MEM y en un grupo control no inoculado. Los peces infectados presentaron los signos característicos de necrosis pancreática (IPN a partir de 19 dpi, alcanzando una mortalidad acumulada de 70%, con evidente emaciación de animales sobrevivientes; asimismo, el nivel de IgM en suero sanguíneo se incrementó progresivamente hasta alcanzar su punto máximo a 31 dpi; los hallazgos histopatológicos más significativos fueron: incremento de centros de melanomacrófagos en riñón, necrosis pancreática y enteritis catarral. El aislamiento viral fue posible únicamente en peces infectados a partir del día 3 y hasta los 45 dpi (P > 0,5. Los resultados observados sugieren que aunque los animales infectados con IPNV pueden desarrollar una respuesta inmune humoral caracterizada por incremento de IgM, ésta es insuficiente para desarrollar protección, ya que al mismo tiempo que se incrementa el nivel de IgM, también aumenta el título viral, acompañado de signos clínicos y lesiones histopatológicas típicas de la enfermedad.The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between the clinical-pathologic process in rainbow trout fry (Oncorhynchus mykiss infected with infectious pancreatic necrosis virus (IPNV and the immunoglobulin M (IgM levels in blood serum.

    Full Text Available We examined seasonal and diel variation in prey species composition and biomass in the diet of the exotic rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss (Walbaum, 1972. The study was carried out in the upper-forested sections of a low order stream in Andean-Patagonia. We studied the importance of functional feeding groups of aquatic invertebrates and the relative contribution of terrestrial and aquatic prey items in order to assess the pathways connecting terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems along a stream food web. Trout fed on approximately 40 invertebrate species and scrapers were consistently selected, suggesting their increased vulnerability to predation. However in terms of biomass, rainbow trout diet was mostly composed by shredders which emphasized the role of the allochthonous plant detritus pathway in food webs of forested small streams. Trout individuals fed more intensively in spring and summer and during daytime. Terrestrial items constituted a minor proportion of the diet implying that this component did not represent a significant subsidy for this fish population. As a consequence, the top-down effect on the aquatic community does not appear to be dampened since trout do not strongly preyed on terrestrial invertebrates.Se estudió la variación estacional y diaria en la composición y biomasa de las especies presa en la dieta de la exótica trucha arco iris Oncorhynchus mykiss (Walbaum, 1972 en la sección superior de un arroyo boscoso de bajo orden en los Andes patagónicos. Se analizó la importancia de los grupos funcionales alimentarios de invertebrados acuáticos y la contribución relativa de las presas de origen terrestre y acuático para evaluar las vías tróficas que conectan los ecosistemas acuático y terrestre circundantes. Las truchas consumieron aproximadamente unas 40 especies de invertebrados y los raspadores fueron consistentemente seleccionados, sugiriendo una alta vulnerabilidad a la depredación.

    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. Sierra Norte consists of small outcrops of metasedimentary rocks intruded by

    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. The stress levels on the radicular thirds of each lower incisors were compared and the stress concentration differences on each incisor were evaluated.

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 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.

OBJETIVO E METODOLOGIA: o presente estudo, com o propósito de observar possíveis alterações pós-tratamento na distância intercaninos, decorrentes da expansão do arco nessa região, avaliou 30 pacientes com má oclusão inicial de Classe I de Angle, tratados ortodonticamente no COP (Centro de Odontologia e Pesquisa da PUC (Pontifícia Universidade Católica de Minas Gerais. A distância intercaninos inferior foi medida de duas maneiras: na ponta da cúspide e na face vestibular dos caninos. As medidas foram feitas em três tempos: T1- pré-tratamento, T2- pós-tratamento e T3- após um mínimo de um ano sem uso da contenção inferior. Foram realizadas comparações quanto ao gênero, realização ou não de exodontias no tratamento, tempo fora de contenção (de um a cinco anos e acima de cinco anos e tipo de movimentação dos caninos (translação ou inclinação. RESULTADOS E CONCLUSÕES: houve um aumento significantes da distância intercaninos durante o tratamento ortodôntico e um decréscimo no período pós-contenção, tanto na ponta da cúspide quanto na face vestibular. Entretanto, a redução da medida, no período pós-contenção, foi maior na ponta da cúspide do que na face vestibular.

    Full Text Available A feeding trial was performed to evaluate the inclusion of high levels of soybean meal as a substitute for fishmeal in diets for juvenile rainbowtrout and determine the phosphorus and nitrogen excretion. Fishmeal was replaced with soybean meal at levels of 50,75 and 100 % with an inclusion of 0.8 g of phytase per kg of diet (g kg-1, whereas a diet with 100% substitution was used without phytase. A commercial diet and one with 100% of fishmeal were used as controls. 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.

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.

    Process mining includes the automated discovery of processes from event logs. Based on observed events (e.g., activities being executed or messages being exchanged) a process model is constructed. One of the essential problems in process mining is that one cannot assume to have seen all possible...... behavior. At best, one has seen a representative subset. Therefore, classical synthesis techniques are not suitable as they aim at finding a model that is able to exactly reproduce the log. Existing process mining techniques try to avoid such “overfitting” by generalizing the model to allow for more...... behavior. This generalization is often driven by the representation language and very crude assumptions about completeness. As a result, parts of the model are “overfitting” (allow only for what has actually been observed) while other parts may be “underfitting” (allowfor much more behavior without strong...

    The Advanced Simulation Capabililty for Environmental Management (ASCEM) program is developing an approach and open-source tool suite for standardized risk and performance assessments at legacy nuclear waste sites. These assessments begin with simplified models, and add geometric and geologic complexity as understanding is gained. The Platform toolsets (Akuna) generates these conceptual models and Amanzi provides the computational engine to perform the simulations, returning the results for analysis and visualization. In this presentation we highlight key elements of the design, algorithms and implementations used in Amanzi. In particular, the hierarchical and modular design is aligned with the coupled processes being sumulated, and naturally supports a wide range of model complexity. This design leverages a dynamic data manager and the synergy of two graphs (one from the high-level perspective of the models the other from the dependencies of the variables in the model) to enable this flexible model configuration at run time. Moreover, to model sites with complex hydrostratigraphy, as well as engineered systems, we are developing a dual unstructured/structured capability. Recently, these capabilities have been collected in a framework named Arcos, and efforts have begun to improve interoperability between the unstructured and structured AMR approaches in Amanzi. To leverage a range of biogeochemistry capability from the community (e.g., CrunchFlow, PFLOTRAN, etc.), a biogeochemistry interface library was developed called Alquimia. To ensure that Amanzi is truly an open-source community code we require a completely open-source tool chain for our development. We will comment on elements of this tool chain, including the testing and documentation development tools such as docutils, and Sphinx. Finally, we will show simulation results from our phased demonstrations, including the geochemically complex Savannah River F-Area seepage basins.

Se trata de granitoides de edad ordovícica inferior cuya composición varía de tonalitas y leucotonalitas a granodioritas y monzogranitos, con biotita y hornblenda. En estas rocas se destaca la abundancia de enclaves de composición granodiorítica a tonalítica y diorítica a basáltica; cuya morfología, dimensiones y relaciones con el encajante es variable e indicativa de procesos de interacción de magmas de composición contrastada. Los datos petrográficos, mineralógicos y químicos permiten indicar como mecanismo más adecuado para la evolución de la serie de granitoides una diferenciación por cristalización fraccionada juntamente con un proceso de mezcla, definido por la interacción de un magma granodiorítico con un fundido básico, de origen profundo. El emplazamiento de los granitoides se produce en un arco magmático activo, conocido como arco famatiniano, al igual que para otras intrusiones de similar posición estratigráfica en el noroeste de Argentina.Las Angosturas Intrusive Complex forms the northern segment of the sierra de Narváez, in the Famatina System of north-western Argentina.

There remarkable abundance of granodioritic to tonalitic and dioritic to basic enclaves, whose morphology, size and relationships with the are variable is indicative of interactive processes between magmas of differing compositions. Petrographical, mineralogical and chemical studies suggest that the most appropriate mechanism for the evolution of the granitod series is one of differentiation by crystal fractionation, together with a process of mixing, involving the interaction between a granodioritic magma with a basic melt

    Macdonald processes are probability measures on sequences of partitions defined in terms of nonnegative specializations of the Macdonald symmetric functions and two Macdonald parameters q,t in [0,1). We prove several results about these processes, which include the following. (1) We explicitly evaluate expectations of a rich family of observables for these processes. (2) In the case t=0, we find a Fredholm determinant formula for a q-Laplace transform of the distribution of the last part of the Macdonald-random partition. (3) We introduce Markov dynamics that preserve the class of Macdonald processes and lead to new "integrable" 2d and 1d interacting particle systems. (4) In a large time limit transition, and as q goes to 1, the particles of these systems crystallize on a lattice, and fluctuations around the lattice converge to O'Connell's Whittaker process that describe semi-discrete Brownian directed polymers. (5) This yields a Fredholm determinant for the Laplace transform of the polymer partition function...

There is little research on PBM dynamics although its phenomena and mechanism have been widely studied. The PBM was discussed from dynamic viewpoint in this paper. It was found that the primary process of cellular PBM might be the key process of cellular PBM so that the transition rate of cellular molecules can be extended to discuss the dose relationship of PBM. There may be a dose zone in which low intensity LI (LIL at different doses has biological effects similar to each other, so that biological information model of PBM might hold.

    Boolean algebra successfully describes the logical behavior of a digital circuit, and has been widely used in electronic circuit design and test With the development of high speed VLSIs it is a drawback for Boolean algebra to be unable to describe circuit timing behavior. Therefore a Boolean process is defined as a family of Boolean van ables relevant to the time parameter t. A real-valued sample of a Boolean process is a waveform. Waveform functions can be manipulated formally by using mathematical tools. The distance, difference and limit of a waveform polynomial are defined, and a sufficient and necessary condition of the limit existence is presented. Based on this, the concept of sensitization is redefined precisely to demonstrate the potential and wide application possibility The new definition is very different from the traditional one, and has an impact on determining the sensitizable paths with maximum or minimum length, and false paths, and then designing and testing high performance circuits

    1999-11-24

    Ceramics represent a unique class of materials that are distinguished from common metals and plastics by their: (1) high hardness, stiffness, and good wear properties (i.e., abrasion resistance); (2) ability to withstand high temperatures (i.e., refractoriness); (3) chemical durability; and (4) electrical properties that allow them to be electrical insulators, semiconductors, or ionic conductors. Ceramics can be broken down into two general categories, traditional and advanced ceramics. Traditional ceramics include common household products such as clay pots, tiles, pipe, and bricks, porcelain china, sinks, and electrical insulators, and thermally insulating refractory bricks for ovens and fireplaces. Advanced ceramics, also referred to as ''high-tech'' ceramics, include products such as spark plug bodies, piston rings, catalyst supports, and water pump seals for automobiles, thermally insulating tiles for the space shuttle, sodium vapor lamp tubes in streetlights, and the capacitors, resistors, transducers, and varistors in the solid-state electronics we use daily. The major differences between traditional and advanced ceramics are in the processing tolerances and cost. Traditional ceramics are manufactured with inexpensive raw materials, are relatively tolerant of minor process deviations, and are relatively inexpensive. Advanced ceramics are typically made with more refined raw materials and processing to optimize a given property or combination of properties (e.g., mechanical, electrical, dielectric, optical, thermal, physical, and/or magnetic) for a given application. Advanced ceramics generally have improved performance and reliability over traditional ceramics, but are typically more expensive. Additionally, advanced ceramics are typically more sensitive to the chemical and physical defects present in the starting raw materials, or those that are introduced during manufacturing.

    A process for the catalytic conversion of synthesis-gas into a product which comprises naphtha, kerosene and distillate is characterized in that the catalyst is a Fischer-Tropsch catalyst also containing a zeolite, the naphtha fraction contains 60% or less linear paraffins and the kerosene and distillated fractions contain more linear paraffins and olefins than found in the naphtha fraction. Reduction of the relative amount of straight chain material in the naphtha fraction increases the octane number and so enhances the quality of the gasoline product, while the high quality of the kerosene and distillate fractions is maintained.

    An improved crystallization process is disclosed for separating a crystallizable material and an excluded material which is at least partially excluded from the solid phase of the crystallizable material obtained upon freezing a liquid phase of the materials. The solid phase is more dense than the liquid phase, and it is separated therefrom by relative movement with the formation of a packed bed of solid phase. The packed bed is continuously formed adjacent its lower end and passed from the liquid phase into a countercurrent flow of backwash liquid. The packed bed extends through the level of the backwash liquid to provide a drained bed of solid phase adjacent its upper end which is melted by a condensing vapor.

Although plumes of buoyant mantle may explain surface deformation and magmatism, our geochemical work does not support this mechanism for Iberia. Generation and ascent of magmas remains puzzling. Our work in Hawaii constrains the residence of magma beneath Hualalai to be a few hundred to about 1000 years. In the crust, heat drives fluid and mass transport. Numerical modeling yielded robust and accurate predictions of these processes. This work is important fundamental science, and applies to mitigation of volcanic and earthquake hazards, Test Ban Treaties, nuclear waste storage, environmental remediation, and hydrothermal energy.

    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.

    . Phys. Lett. 92:211105, 2008). For this point, recall Figs. 6.16 and 6.33. Since the polarisation amplitude is gone in any case after the recombination process, there is an upper limit for T 2 given by T 2 ≤ 2 T1. The factor of two comes from the fact that T 2 describes the decay of an amplitude and T 1 the decay of a population, which is proportional to the amplitude squared. Sometimes T 2 is subdivided in a term due to recombination described by T 1 and another called 'pure dephasing' called T 2 ∗ with the relation 1 / T 2 = 1 / 2 T 1 + 1 / T2 ∗. The quantity T 2 ∗ can considerably exceed 2 T 1. In the part on relaxation processes that is on processes contributing to T 3, we give also examples for the capture of excitons into bound, localized, or deep states. For more details on dynamics in semiconductors in general see for example, the (text-) books [Klingshirn, Semiconductor Optics, 3rd edn. (Springer, Berlin, 2006); Haug and Koch, Quantum Theory of the Optical and Electronic Properties of Semiconductors, 4th edn. (World Scientific, Singapore, 2004); Haug and Jauho, Quantum Kinetics in Transport and Optics of Semiconductors, Springer Series in Solid State Sciences vol. 123 (Springer, Berlin, 1996); J. Shah, Ultrafast Spectroscopy of Semiconductors and of Semiconductor Nanostructures, Springer Series in Solid State Sciences vol. 115 (Springer, Berlin, 1996); Schafer and Wegener, Semiconductor Optics and Transport Phenomena (Springer, Berlin, 2002)]. We present selected data for free, bound and localized excitons, biexcitons and electron-hole pairs in an EHP and examples for bulk materials, epilayers, quantum wells, nano rods and nano crystals with the restriction that - to the knowledge of the author - data are not available for all these systems, density ranges and temperatures.

    Grangeat, P.

    A new area of biology has been opened up by nanoscale exploration of the living world. This has been made possible by technological progress, which has provided the tools needed to make devices that can measure things on such length and time scales. In a sense, this is a new window upon the living world, so rich and so diverse. Many of the investigative methods described in this book seek to obtain complementary physical, chemical, and biological data to understand the way it works and the way it is organised. At these length and time scales, only dedicated instrumentation could apprehend the relevant phenomena. There is no way for our senses to observe these things directly. One important field of application is molecular medicine, which aims to explain the mechanisms of life and disease by the presence and quantification of specific molecular entities. This involves combining information about genes, proteins, cells, and organs. This in turn requires the association of instruments for molecular diagnosis, either in vitro, e.g., the microarray or the lab-on-a-chip, or in vivo, e.g., probes for molecular biopsy, and tools for molecular imaging, used to localise molecular information in living organisms in a non-invasive way. These considerations concern both preclinical research for drug design and human medical applications. With the development of DNA and RNA chips [1], genomics has revolutionised investigative methods for cells and cell processes [2,3]. By sequencing the human genome, new ways have been found for understanding the fundamental mechanisms of life [4]. A revolution is currently under way with the analysis of the proteome [5-8], i.e., the complete set of proteins that can be found in some given biological medium, such as the blood plasma. The goal is to characterise certain diseases by recognisable signatures in the proteomic profile, as determined from a blood sample or a biopsy, for example [9-13]. What is at stake is the early detection of

    A three semester, 60-credit course package in the topic of Administrative Data Processing (ADP), offered in 1966 at Stockholm University (SU) and the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) is described. The package had an information systems engineering orientation. The first semester focused on datalogical topics, while the second semester focused on the infological topics. The third semester aimed to deepen the students’ knowledge in different parts of ADP and at writing a bachelor thesis. The concluding section of this paper discusses various aspects of the department’s first course effort. The course package led to a concretisation of our discipline and gave our discipline an identity. Our education seemed modern, “just in time”, and well adapted to practical needs. The course package formed the first concrete activity of a group of young teachers and researchers. In a forty-year perspective, these people have further developed the department and the topic to an internationally well-reputed body of knowledge and research. The department has produced more than thirty professors and more than one hundred doctoral degrees.

    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)

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

    Physical properties of gases as density, thermal and electric conductivity and ionization potential determine, to a great extent, the operational characteristics of welding arcs. These properties can very strongly for different gases. As a result, arc voltage, heat output, mean radius, thermal profile, efficiency and other arc characteristics that influence bead geometry (shape, depth, etc) depend on chemical composition of the shielding gas. Complex physical models have being proposed to explain and to quantify the effects of shielding gas chemical composition on the welding arc performance. The influence of arc atmosphere can also be readily observed empirically. However, only changes arc operational parameters and weld bead geometry due to variations in gas composition are well registered in the literature. In this work, an optical study of the gas tungsten arc is presented, based on a digital system for image capture and weeding parameters register, during arc operation. The results were related to physical properties of gases and mixtures used and models in literature. (Author) 11 refs.

    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.

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.

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.

    Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) is uniquely suited to help solve the Search and Rescue problem since it can be utilized either day or night and through both dense fog or thick cloud cover. Other papers in this session, and in this session in 1997, describe the various SAR image processing algorithms that are being developed and evaluated within the Search and Rescue Program. All of these approaches to using SAR data require substantial amounts of digital signal processing: for the SAR image formation, and possibly for the subsequent image processing. In recognition of the demanding processing that will be required for an operational Search and Rescue Data Processing System (SARDPS), NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center and NASA/Stennis Space Center are conducting a technology demonstration utilizing SHARC multi-chip modules from Boeing to perform SAR image formation processing.

    In response to decreasing funding levels available to support activities at the Idaho Chemical Processing Plant (ICPP) and a desire to be cost competitive, the Department of Energy Idaho Operations Office (DOE-ID) and Lockheed Idaho Technologies Company have increased their emphasis on cost-saving measures. The ICPP Effectiveness Improvement Initiative involves many activities to improve cost effectiveness and competitiveness. This report documents the methodology and results of one of those cost cutting measures, the Process Efficiency Improvement Activity. The Process Efficiency Improvement Activity performed a systematic review of major work processes at the ICPP to increase productivity and to identify nonvalue-added requirements. A two-phase approach was selected for the activity to allow for near-term implementation of relatively easy process modifications in the first phase while obtaining long-term continuous improvement in the second phase and beyond. Phase I of the initiative included a concentrated review of processes that had a high potential for cost savings with the intent of realizing savings in Fiscal Year 1996 (FY-96.) Phase II consists of implementing long-term strategies too complex for Phase I implementation and evaluation of processes not targeted for Phase I review. The Phase II effort is targeted for realizing cost savings in FY-97 and beyond.

The interactions between the material characteristics and process related variation are presently not comprehensively analyzed due to univariate detection methods.

    2007-06-01

    The distribution of dietary polyamines, putrescine, spermidine and spermine, was determined during processing of Camellia sinensis. Black tea manufacture is carried by a series of processes on fresh tea leaves involving withering, rolling, fermentation, drying and sieving. The aim of this research was to determine the effect of tea processing on the polyamine content in relation with antioxidant enzymes, superoxide dismutase, lipid peroxidase and glutathione peroxidase. Before processing, the spermine content was much higher than the putrescine and spermidine content in green tea leaves. Spermine was significantly decreased during processing while the putrescine and spermine contents increased during withered and rolling and decreased in the following stages. The superoxide dismutase activity increased at the withering stage and declined during processing. The transcript level of the polyamine biosynthesis-responsible enzyme ornithine decarboxylase was reduced during each processing step. This study reveals the importance of protection of nutritional compounds that are essential for health during the manufacturing process.

Então a utilização de processos de solda por atrito, especificamente o processo FHPP (Friction Hydro Pillar Processing que consiste na utilização de pinos para reparo por atrito, apresenta vantagens por ser um processo realizado no estado sólido. Menores temperaturas estão envolvidas e não existe influência do ambiente externo, minimizando os problemas nos reparos estruturais. Este trabalho teve como objetivo observar a variação dos parâmetros do processo e os efeitos desses na microestrutura e qualidade do reparo. O estudo comparou diferentes forças axiais nos reparos com aço C-Mn através de metalografias e perfis de microdureza. Uma força axial maior resultou em um menor tempo de processo, em uma microestrutura mais homogênea e evitou os defeitos "falta de adesão" na zona de ligação e "cisalhamento a quente" do pino.The arc welding it is the most used technique to repair large structures, however, has disadvantages that result from the solidification of the weld metal.

    Novel materials and devices in photonics have the potential to revolutionize optical information processing, beyond conventional binary-logic approaches. Laser systems offer a rich repertoire of useful dynamical behaviors, including the excitable dynamics also found in the time-resolved "spiking" of neurons. Spiking reconciles the expressiveness and efficiency of analog processing with the robustness and scalability of digital processing. We demonstrate that graphene-coupled laser systems offer a unified low-level spike optical processing paradigm that goes well beyond previously studied laser dynamics. We show that this platform can simultaneously exhibit logic-level restoration, cascadability and input-output isolation---fundamental challenges in optical information processing. We also implement low-level spike-processing tasks that are critical for higher level processing: temporal pattern detection and stable recurrent memory. We study these properties in the context of a fiber laser system, but the addit...

    Plasma etching process of UO{sub 2} by using fluorine containing gas plasma is studied as a secondary fuel removal process for DUPIC (Direct Use of PWR spent fuel Into Candu) process which is taken into consideration for potential future fuel cycle in Korea. CF{sub 4}/O{sub 2} gas mixture is chosen for reactant gas and the etching rates of UO{sub 2} by the gas plasma are investigated as functions of CF{sub 4}/O{sub 2} ratio, plasma power, substrate temperature, and plasma gas pressure. It is found that the optimum CF{sub 4}/O{sub 2} ratio is around 4:1 at all temperatures up to 400 deg C and the etching rate increases with increasing r.f. power and substrate temperature. Under 150W r.f. power the etching rate reaches 1100 monolayers/min at 400 deg C, which is equivalent to about 0.5mm/min. (author).

    We characterize all possible independent symmetric $\\alpha$-stable (S$\\alpha$S) components of a non--Gaussian S$\\alpha$S process, $0<\\alpha<2$. In particular, we characterize the independent stationary S$\\alpha$S components of a stationary S$\\alpha$S process. One simple consequence of our characterization is that all stationary components of the S$\\alpha$S moving average processes are trivial. As a main application, we show that the standard Brown--Resnick process has a moving average representation. This complements a result of Kabluchko et al. (2009), who obtained mixed moving average representations for these processes. We also develop a parallel characterization theory for max-stable processes.

    What constitutes jointly Poisson processes remains an unresolved issue. This report reviews the current state of the theory and indicates how the accepted but unproven model equals that resulting from the small time-interval limit of jointly Bernoulli processes. One intriguing consequence of these models is that jointly Poisson processes can only be positively correlated as measured by the correlation coefficient defined by cumulants of the probability generating functional.

  8. Living olefin polymerization processes

    Science.gov (United States)

    Schrock, Richard R.; Baumann, Robert

    1999-01-01

    Processes for the living polymerization of olefin monomers with terminal carbon-carbon double bonds are disclosed. The processes employ initiators that include a metal atom and a ligand having two group 15 atoms and a group 16 atom or three group 15 atoms. The ligand is bonded to the metal atom through two anionic or covalent bonds and a dative bond. The initiators are particularly stable under reaction conditions in the absence of olefin monomer. The processes provide polymers having low polydispersities, especially block copolymers having low polydispersities. It is an additional advantage of these processes that, during block copolymer synthesis, a relatively small amount of homopolymer is formed.

    Brownstein, Aaron L

    2003-07-01

    Decision makers conduct biased predecision processing when they restructure their mental representation of the decision environment to favor one alternative before making their choice. The question of whether biased predecision processing occurs has been controversial since L. Festinger (1957) maintained that it does not occur. The author reviews relevant research in sections on theories of cognitive dissonance, decision conflict, choice certainty, action control, action phases, dominance structuring, differentiation and consolidation, constructive processing, motivated reasoning, and groupthink. Some studies did not find evidence of biased predecision processing, but many did. In the Discussion section, the moderators are summarized and used to assess the theories.

  12. Acoustic Signal Processing

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hartmann, William M.; Candy, James V.

    Signal processing refers to the acquisition, storage, display, and generation of signals - also to the extraction of information from signals and the re-encoding of information. As such, signal processing in some form is an essential element in the practice of all aspects of acoustics. Signal processing algorithms enable acousticians to separate signals from noise, to perform automatic speech recognition, or to compress information for more efficient storage or transmission. Signal processing concepts are the building blocks used to construct models of speech and hearing. Now, in the 21st century, all signal processing is effectively digital signal processing. Widespread access to high-speed processing, massive memory, and inexpensive software make signal processing procedures of enormous sophistication and power available to anyone who wants to use them. Because advanced signal processing is now accessible to everybody, there is a need for primers that introduce basic mathematical concepts that underlie the digital algorithms. The present handbook chapter is intended to serve such a purpose.

    2015-01-01

    A new phenomenon, called cooperative internal conversion process, in which the coupling of bound-free electron and neutron transitions due to the dipole term of their Coulomb interaction permits cooperation of two nuclei leading to neutron exchange if it is allowed by energy conservation, is discussed theoretically. General expression of the cross section of the process is reported in one particle nuclear and spherical shell models as well in the case of free atoms (e.g. noble gases). A half-life characteristic of the process is also determined. The case of $Ne$ is investigated numerically. The process may have significance in fields of nuclear waste disposal and nuclear energy production.

    2015-06-01

    Food processing can have many beneficial effects. However, processing may also alter the allergenic properties of food proteins. A wide variety of processing methods is available and their use depends largely on the food to be processed. In this review the impact of processing (heat and non-heat treatment) on the allergenic potential of proteins, and on the antigenic (IgG-binding) and allergenic (IgE-binding) properties of proteins has been considered. A variety of allergenic foods (peanuts, tree nuts, cows' milk, hens' eggs, soy, wheat and mustard) have been reviewed. The overall conclusion drawn is that processing does not completely abolish the allergenic potential of allergens. Currently, only fermentation and hydrolysis may have potential to reduce allergenicity to such an extent that symptoms will not be elicited, while other methods might be promising but need more data. Literature on the effect of processing on allergenic potential and the ability to induce sensitisation is scarce. This is an important issue since processing may impact on the ability of proteins to cause the acquisition of allergic sensitisation, and the subject should be a focus of future research. Also, there remains a need to develop robust and integrated methods for the risk assessment of food allergenicity.

    Mendling, Jan

    The recent progress of Business Process Management (BPM) is reflected by the figures of the related industry. Wintergreen Research estimates that the international market for BPM-related software and services accounted for more than USD 1 billion in 2005 with a tendency towards rapid growth in the subsequent couple of years [457]. The relevance of business process modeling to general management initiatives has been previously studied in the 1990s [28]. Today, Gartner finds that organizations that had the best results in implementing business process management spent more than 40 percent of the total project time on discovery and construction of their initial process model [265]. As a consequence, Gartner considers Business Process Modeling to be among the Top 10 Strategic Technologies for 2008.

  16. New Processes for Annulation

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    Liu Hsing-Jang

    2004-01-01

    Making use of the high propensity of 2-cyano-2-cycloalkenones to undergo conjugate addition with various carbanions and the high reactivity of the ensuing α -cyano ketone system, a number of new annulation processes have been developed recently in our laboratories. As shown in Eq. 1 (n=1) with a specific example, one such process involves the addition of 3-butenylmagnesium bromide, followed by a palladium (Ⅱ) acetate mediated oxidative cyclization, to facilitate methylenecyclopentane ring formation. This annulation process could be readily extended to effect methylenecyclohexane ring formation (Eq. 1, n=2), using 4-pentenylmagnesinm bromide as the initial reagent, and to install the carbomethoxy-substituted methylenecyclopentane and methylenecyclohexane rings, using the carbanions derived from methyl 4-pentenoate and methyl 5-hexenoate, respectively (Eq. 2). In another annulation process, the addition of the enolate of methyl 5-chloropentanoate is involved initially, and the ring formation is readily effected by an intramolecular alkylation process. A specific example is given in Eq. 3.

    2007-01-15

    In this paper, we propose a class of non-Gaussian stationary increment processes, named nonhomogeneous fractional Poisson processes W{sub H}{sup (j)}(t), which permit the study of the effects of long-range dependance in a large number of fields including quantum physics and finance. The processes W{sub H}{sup (j)}(t) are self-similar in a wide sense, exhibit more fatter tail than Gaussian processes, and converge to the Gaussian processes in distribution in some cases. In addition, we also show that the intensity function {lambda}(t) strongly influences the existence of the highest finite moment of W{sub H}{sup (j)}(t) and the behaviour of the tail probability of W{sub H}{sup (j)}(t)

  2. Heavy oils processing materials requirements crude processing

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Sloley, Andrew W. [CH2M Hill, Englewood, CO (United States)

    2012-07-01

    Over time, recommended best practices for crude unit materials selection have evolved to accommodate new operating requirements, feed qualities, and product qualities. The shift to heavier oil processing is one of the major changes in crude feed quality occurring over the last 20 years. The three major types of crude unit corrosion include sulfidation attack, naphthenic acid attack, and corrosion resulting from hydrolyzable chlorides. Heavy oils processing makes all three areas worse. Heavy oils have higher sulfur content; higher naphthenic acid content; and are more difficult to desalt, leading to higher chloride corrosion rates. Materials selection involves two major criteria, meeting required safety standards, and optimizing economics of the overall plant. Proper materials selection is only one component of a plant integrity approach. Materials selection cannot eliminate all corrosion. Proper materials selection requires appropriate support from other elements of an integrity protection program. The elements of integrity preservation include: materials selection (type and corrosion allowance); management limits on operating conditions allowed; feed quality control; chemical additives for corrosion reduction; and preventive maintenance and inspection (PMI). The following discussion must be taken in the context of the application of required supporting work in all the other areas. Within that context, specific materials recommendations are made to minimize corrosion due to the most common causes in the crude unit. (author)

  3. The Isasmelt process

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Barrett, K.R. (MIM Technology Marketing Ltd., Northfleet (United Kingdom))

    1993-01-01

    The Isasmelt process was developed at Mt Isa Mines Ltd. in Queensland. The process was initially developed for the treatment of lead concentrate. After successful application of the process to lead production a pilot plant was built for the treatment of copper concentrate to produce copper matte. This was successful and as a result Mt Isa Mines decided to build a new copper smelter with a capacity of 180,000 t copper/ a in copper matte. Further commercialisation of the process has resulted in the construction of further plants for lead, nickel and copper production. Mt Isa Mines Ltd. has been associated with CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific Industrial Research Organisation) in the development of the Isasmelt process since 1977, when a Sirosmelt lance was tested for reducing copper converter slags. Thermodynamic modelling and cruicible scale investigations on a lead smelting process were initiated in 1978. After further work on a 120 kg/h pilot plant the Isasmelt process for lead concentrate smelting was patented jointly by Mt Isa Mines and CSIRO. Since then a 5 t/h demonstration plant was commissioned 1983/85 for smelting and reduction. Finally in 1991 a commercial scale plant with a capacity of 60,000 t/a was commissioned. (orig.).

Revealing the programming process is an important part of this; however, textbooks do not address the issue -- probably because...... the textbook medium is static and therefore ill-suited to expose the process of programming. We have found that process recordings in the form of captured narrated programming sessions are a simple, cheap, and efficient way of providing the revelation.We identify seven different elements of the programming...... process for which process recordings are a valuable communication media in order to enhance the learning process. Student feedback indicates both high learning outcome and superior learning potential compared to traditional classroom teaching....

  5. States in Process Calculi

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Christoph Wagner

    2014-08-01

    Full Text Available Formal reasoning about distributed algorithms (like Consensus typically requires to analyze global states in a traditional state-based style. This is in contrast to the traditional action-based reasoning of process calculi. Nevertheless, we use domain-specific variants of the latter, as they are convenient modeling languages in which the local code of processes can be programmed explicitly, with the local state information usually managed via parameter lists of process constants. However, domain-specific process calculi are often equipped with (unlabeled reduction semantics, building upon a rich and convenient notion of structural congruence. Unfortunately, the price for this convenience is that the analysis is cumbersome: the set of reachable states is modulo structural congruence, and the processes' state information is very hard to identify. We extract from congruence classes of reachable states individual state-informative representatives that we supply with a proper formal semantics. As a result, we can now freely switch between the process calculus terms and their representatives, and we can use the stateful representatives to perform assertional reasoning on process calculus models.

    Irradiation of high-energy ultrasonic vibration in metals and alloys generates oscillating strain and stress fields in solids, and introduces nonlinear effects such as cavitation, acoustic streaming, and radiation pressure in molten materials. These nonlinear effects can be utilized to assist conventional material processing processes. This article describes recent research at Oak Ridge National Labs and Purdue University on using high-intensity ultrasonic vibrations for degassing molten aluminum, processing particulate-reinforced metal matrix composites, refining metals and alloys during solidification process and welding, and producing bulk nanostructures in solid metals and alloys. Research results suggest that high-intensity ultrasonic vibration is capable of degassing and dispersing small particles in molten alloys, reducing grain size during alloy solidification, and inducing nanostructures in solid metals.

    Economic scale of radiation application in the field of industry, agriculture and medicine in Japan in 1997 was investigated to compare its economic impacts with that of nuclear energy industry. Total production value of radiation application accounted for 54% of nuclear industry including nuclear energy industry and radiation applications in three fields above. Industrial radiation applications were further divided into five groups, namely nondestructive test, RI instruments, radiation facilities, radiation processing and ion beam processing. More than 70% of the total production value was brought about by ion beam processing for use with IC and semiconductors. Future economic prospect of radiation processing of polymers, for example cross-linking, EB curing, graft polymerization and degradation, is reviewed. Particular attention was paid to radiation vulcanization of natural rubber latex and also to degradation of natural polymers. (S. Ohno)

    Full Text Available We can be mistaken to formulate basic concepts of process management, and we are at risk to be on the wrong way solving the focused problems – instead of process management we could do automatization, instead of process system we could introduce function-oriented system. Without having a clear idea of the model we have to execute, we can plan this model as an analytical one and do not include all the necessary tools for management on the stage of planning. The article is targeted for the analysts who have skills in analytical modeling of business processes and would like to make a step forward to the implementation of these models. In order to become professionals in this field it is necessary to learn the terminology, first of all.

    2007-01-01

    A Markovian risk process is considered in this paper, which is the generalization of the classical risk model. It is proper that a risk process with large claims is modelled as the Markovian risk model. In such a model, the occurrence of claims is described by a point process {N(t)}t≥o with N(t) being the number of jumps during the interval (0, t] for a Markov jump process. The ruin probability Ψ(u) of a company facing such a risk model is mainly studied. An integral equation satisfied by the ruin probability function Ψ(u) is obtained and the bounds for the convergence rate of the ruin probability Ψ(u) are given by using a generalized renewal technique developed in the paper.

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available The paper considers different aspects of neuroplasticity in patients with stroke. It underlines the dynamism of this process and the ambiguity of involvement of the structures of the contralateral cerebral hemisphere in the restorative process. It considers the periods after onset of stroke and the activation of different brain regions (of both the involved and intact hemisphere in the poststroke period. Particular emphasis is placed on the issues of neurorehabilitation in this category of patients. Delay in rehabilitation measures leads to a worse outcome, the patients must be at hospital longer. It is emphasized that the neurorehabilitaton measures should use strategies aimed at improving plasticity processes at the level of synaptic transmission and neuronal communications. At the same time, of great importance are the processes of structural and functional remodeling of neuronal communications with the involvement of surviving neurons that are located in the peri-infarct area and partially damaged during ischemia. To recover stroke-induced lost motor functions, measures are implemented to modulate the ipsilateral motor cortex, contralateral motor cortex, and sensory afferentation. Remodeling processes, one of the manifestations of neuroplasticity, vary with the size and location of an ischemic focus. The specific features of this process with subcortical and cortical foci are considered. It is stressed that there are genetically determined neurotrophic factors that may enhance remodeling processes in the peri-infarct area, as well as factors that inhibit these processes. The sensory system is noted to have a high potential of compensation, which is appreciably associated with the considerable extent of sensory fibers even at the level of the cerebral cortex.

    Full Text Available This paper aims at analysing activities of the privatisation process in Kosovo, seeing that privatisation is treated as a fundamental factor of overall transformation of the whole society. It may be established that the primary aim of privatisation process is increasing economic efficiency, reflection of the current state and directions of development in general. Privatisation as a process has as primary aim of opening new areas of freedom, economic efficiency and individualism. Key aim of privatisation process in Kosovo must be increase of economic efficiency, preservation of the healthy economic potential created up to date, and ensuring of the long term concept, which enables growth and macroeconomic stability. The policy of privatisation should give a response related to strategic aspects of privatisation of these sectors: of models, procedures, potential investors, technological modernisation and overtaking of social barriers. Process of privatisation and transition which has now covered countries of the Eastern and Central Europe, aims at profound economic and political transformation of these countries. To achieve this, it is necessarily required to have some basic preconditions, which are related to incitement of general efficiency of the enterprises, expansion of the capital market, introduction of competition, development of business culture in private property and freedom of entrepreneurship. Impacts of privatisation in economic development of Kosovo take a considerable place compared to other countries, therefore our aim is that through this paper we analyse factors and methods of implementation in this process.

Vexcel Corporation in Boulder, Colorado, has built a SAR processing system, named APEX -Suite, for spaceborne SAR satellites that can easily be expanded for the next generation of SAR satellites. APEX-Suite includes an auto-satellite-detecting Level 0 Processor that includes bit-error correction, data quality characterization, and as a unique feature, a sophisticated and very accurate Doppler centroid estimator. The Level 1 processing is divided into the strip mode processor FOCUST, based on the well-proven range-Doppler algorithm, and the SWATHT ScanSAR processor that uses the Chirp Z Trans-form algorithm. A high-accuracy ortho-rectification processor produces systematic and precision corrected Level 2 SAR image pro ducts. The PALSAR instrument is an L-band SAR with multiple fine and standard resolution beams in strip mode, and several wide-swath ScanSAR modes. We will address the adaptation process of Vexcel's APEX-Suite processing system for the PALSAR sensor and discuss image quality characteristics based on processed simulated point target phase history data.

  11. Helium process cycle

    Ganni, Venkatarao

    2007-10-09

    A unique process cycle and apparatus design separates the consumer (cryogenic) load return flow from most of the recycle return flow of a refrigerator and/or liquefier process cycle. The refrigerator and/or liquefier process recycle return flow is recompressed by a multi-stage compressor set and the consumer load return flow is recompressed by an independent consumer load compressor set that maintains a desirable constant suction pressure using a consumer load bypass control valve and the consumer load return pressure control valve that controls the consumer load compressor's suction pressure. The discharge pressure of this consumer load compressor is thereby allowed to float at the intermediate pressure in between the first and second stage recycle compressor sets. Utilizing the unique gas management valve regulation, the unique process cycle and apparatus design in which the consumer load return flow is separate from the recycle return flow, the pressure ratios of each recycle compressor stage and all main pressures associated with the recycle return flow are allowed to vary naturally, thus providing a naturally regulated and balanced floating pressure process cycle that maintains optimal efficiency at design and off-design process cycle capacity and conditions automatically.

  12. Novel food processing techniques

    2006-12-01

    Full Text Available Recently, a lot of investigations have been focused on development of the novel mild food processing techniques with the aim to obtain the high quality food products. It is presumed also that they could substitute some of the traditional processes in the food industry. The investigations are primarily directed to usage of high hydrostatic pressure, ultrasound, tribomechanical micronization, microwaves, pulsed electrical fields. The results of the scientific researches refer to the fact that application of some of these processes in particular food industry can result in lots of benefits. A significant energy savings, shortening of process duration, mild thermal conditions, food products with better sensory characteristics and with higher nutritional values can be achieved. As some of these techniques act also on the molecular level changing the conformation, structure and electrical potential of organic as well as inorganic materials, the improvement of some functional properties of these components may occur. Common characteristics of all of these techniques are treatment at ambient or insignificant higher temperatures and short time of processing (1 to 10 minutes. High hydrostatic pressure applied to various foodstuffs can destroy some microorganisms, successfully modify molecule conformation and consequently improve functional properties of foods. At the same time it acts positively on the food products intend for freezing. Tribomechanical treatment causes micronization of various solid materials that results in nanoparticles and changes in structure and electrical potential of molecules. Therefore, the significant improvement of some rheological and functional properties of materials occurred. Ultrasound treatment proved to be potentially very successful technique of food processing. It can be used as a pretreatment to drying (decreases drying time and improves functional properties of food, as extraction process of various components

  13. Carbon dioxide reducing processes; Koldioxidreducerande processer

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Svensson, Fredrik

    1999-12-01

    This thesis discusses different technologies to reduce or eliminate the carbon dioxide emissions, when a fossil fuel is used for energy production. Emission reduction can be accomplished by separating the carbon dioxide for storage or reuse. There are three different ways of doing the separation. The carbon dioxide can be separated before the combustion, the process can be designed so that the carbon dioxide can be separated without any energy consumption and costly systems or the carbon dioxide can be separated from the flue gas stream. Two different concepts of separating the carbon dioxide from a combined cycle are compared, from the performance and the economical point of view, with a standard natural gas fired combined cycle where no attempts are made to reduce the carbon dioxide emissions. One concept is to use absorption technologies to separate the carbon dioxide from the flue gas stream. The other concept is based on a semi-closed gas turbine cycle using carbon dioxide as working fluid and combustion with pure oxygen, generated in an air-separating unit. The calculations show that the efficiency (power) drop is smaller for the first concept than for the second, 8.7 % points compared to 13.7 % points, when power is produced. When both heat and power are produced, the relation concerning the efficiency (power) remains. Regarding the overall efficiency (heat and power) the opposite relation is present. A possible carbon dioxide tax must exceed 0.21 SEK/kg CO{sub 2} for it to be profitable to separate carbon dioxide with any of these technologies.

    Swartzlander, Earl

    1994-01-01

    This book is the first in a set of forthcoming books focussed on state-of-the-art development in the VLSI Signal Processing area. It is a response to the tremendous research activities taking place in that field. These activities have been driven by two factors: the dramatic increase in demand for high speed signal processing, especially in consumer elec­ tronics, and the evolving microelectronic technologies. The available technology has always been one of the main factors in determining al­ gorithms, architectures, and design strategies to be followed. With every new technology, signal processing systems go through many changes in concepts, design methods, and implementation. The goal of this book is to introduce the reader to the main features of VLSI Signal Processing and the ongoing developments in this area. The focus of this book is on: • Current developments in Digital Signal Processing (DSP) pro­ cessors and architectures - several examples and case studies of existing DSP chips are discussed in...

  16. Due process traditionalism.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Sunstein, Cass R

    2008-06-01

    In important cases, the Supreme Court has limited the scope of "substantive due process" by reference to tradition, but it has yet to explain why it has done so. Due process traditionalism might be defended in several distinctive ways. The most ambitious defense draws on a set of ideas associated with Edmund Burke and Friedrich Hayek, who suggested that traditions have special credentials by virtue of their acceptance by many minds. But this defense runs into three problems. Those who have participated in a tradition may not have accepted any relevant proposition; they might suffer from a systematic bias; and they might have joined a cascade. An alternative defense sees due process traditionalism as a second-best substitute for two preferable alternatives: a purely procedural approach to the Due Process Clause, and an approach that gives legislatures the benefit of every reasonable doubt. But it is not clear that in these domains, the first-best approaches are especially attractive; and even if they are, the second-best may be an unacceptably crude substitute. The most plausible defense of due process traditionalism operates on rule-consequentialist grounds, with the suggestion that even if traditions are not great, they are often good, and judges do best if they defer to traditions rather than attempting to specify the content of "liberty" on their own. But the rule-consequentialist defense depends on controversial and probably false assumptions about the likely goodness of traditions and the institutional incapacities of judges.

    1984-03-27

    A process is described for producing xanthan gum in which the use of a stable, water-in-oil emulsion in the fermentation medium markedly lowers the viscosity of the medium, resulting in lower energy requirements for the process, and also resulting in enhanced yields of the biopolymer. In such an emulsion, the aqueous fermentation phase, with its microbial growth and metabolic processes, takes place in a finely dispersed homogeneous oil phase. The viscosity increase in each droplet of the aqueous nutrient solution will not noticeably affect this mixture in the fermenter because the viscosity of the reaction mixture in the fermenter is determined primarily by the viscosity of the oil phase. 45 claims

  1. Stochastic processes inference theory

    CERN Document Server

    Rao, Malempati M

    2014-01-01

    This is the revised and enlarged 2nd edition of the authors’ original text, which was intended to be a modest complement to Grenander's fundamental memoir on stochastic processes and related inference theory. The present volume gives a substantial account of regression analysis, both for stochastic processes and measures, and includes recent material on Ridge regression with some unexpected applications, for example in econometrics. The first three chapters can be used for a quarter or semester graduate course on inference on stochastic processes. The remaining chapters provide more advanced material on stochastic analysis suitable for graduate seminars and discussions, leading to dissertation or research work. In general, the book will be of interest to researchers in probability theory, mathematical statistics and electrical and information theory.

    Ausschnitt, Christopher P.; Chu, William; Hadel, Linda M.; Ho, Hok; Talvi, Peter

    2000-06-01

    This paper is the third of a series that defines a new approach to in-line lithography control. The first paper described the use of optically measurable line-shortening targets to enhance signal-to-noise and reduce measurement time. The second described the dual-tone optical critical dimension (OCD) measurement and analysis necessary to distinguish dose and defocus. Here we describe the marriage of dual-tone OCD to SEM-CD metrology that comprises what we call 'process window metrology' (PWM), the means to locate each measured site in dose and focus space relative to the allowed process window. PWM provides in-line process tracking and control essential to the successful implementation of low-k lithography.

The system includes a common vacuum chamber in which is located a rotatable wheel-like member which is adapted to move a plurality of individual component sets of a flat pack resonator unit past discretely located processing stations in said chamber whereupon electrode deposition takes place followed by the placement of ceramic covers over a frame containing a resonator element and then to a sealing stage where a pair of hydraulic rams including heating elements effect a metallized bonding of the covers to the frame.

  4. Process of timbral composing

    Withrow, Sam

    In this paper, I discuss the techniques and processes of timbral organization I developed while writing my chamber work, Afterimage. I compare my techniques with illustrative examples by other composers to place my work in historical context. I examine three elements of my composition process. The first is the process of indexing and cataloging basic sonic materials. The second consists of the techniques and mechanics of manipulating and assembling these collections into larger scale phrases, textures, and overall form in a musical work. The third element is the more elusive, and often extra-musical, source of inspiration and motivation. The evocative power of tone color is both immediately evident yet difficult to explain. What is timbre? This question cannot be answered solely in scientific terms; subjective factors affect our perception of it.

  5. The Nursing Process

    1978-09-01

    Full Text Available The essence of the nursing process can be summed up in this quotation by Sir Francis Bacon: “Human knowledge and human powers meet in one; for where the cause is not known the effect cannot be produced.” Arriving at a concise, accurate definition of the nursing process was, for me, an impossible task. It is altogether too vast and too personal a topic to contract down into a niftylooking, we-pay-lip-service-to-it cliché. So what I propose to do is to present my understanding of the nursing process throughout this essay, and then to leave the reader with some overall, general impression of what it all entails.

    2004-07-01

    A workman suffered a fatal injury due to a fall of ground from the face of a development drivage, which was supported by passive supports supplemented with roof bolts. A working party was set up to review the support process and evaluate how protection of the workmen could be improved whilst setting supports.The working party included representatives from the trade unions, the mines inspectorate and mine operators.Visits were made to several mines and discussions were held with the workmen and management at these mines. The paper describes the results of the visits and how a support design process was evolved. The process will ensure that the support system is designed to reduce the inherent hazards associated with setting supports using either conventional or mixed support systems.

  8. Topological signal processing

    CERN Document Server

    Robinson, Michael

    2014-01-01

    Signal processing is the discipline of extracting information from collections of measurements. To be effective, the measurements must be organized and then filtered, detected, or transformed to expose the desired information.  Distortions caused by uncertainty, noise, and clutter degrade the performance of practical signal processing systems. In aggressively uncertain situations, the full truth about an underlying signal cannot be known.  This book develops the theory and practice of signal processing systems for these situations that extract useful, qualitative information using the mathematics of topology -- the study of spaces under continuous transformations.  Since the collection of continuous transformations is large and varied, tools which are topologically-motivated are automatically insensitive to substantial distortion. The target audience comprises practitioners as well as researchers, but the book may also be beneficial for graduate students.

    Today's need for rapid software development has generated a great interest in employing Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) software products as a way of managing cost, developing time, and effort. With an abundance of COTS software packages to choose from, the problem now is how to systematically evaluate, rank, and select a COTS product that best meets the software project requirements and at the same time can leverage off the current corporate information technology architectural environment. This paper describes a systematic process for decision support in evaluating and ranking COTS software. Performed right after the requirements analysis, this process provides the evaluators with more concise, structural, and step-by-step activities for determining the best COTS software product with manageable risk. In addition, the process is presented in phases that are flexible to allow for customization or tailoring to meet various projects' requirements.

  10. NTP comparison process

    Science.gov (United States)

    Corban, Robert

    The systems engineering process for the concept definition phase of the program involves requirements definition, system definition, and consistent concept definition. The requirements definition process involves obtaining a complete understanding of the system requirements based on customer needs, mission scenarios, and nuclear thermal propulsion (NTP) operating characteristics. A system functional analysis is performed to provide a comprehensive traceability and verification of top-level requirements down to detailed system specifications and provides significant insight into the measures of system effectiveness to be utilized in system evaluation. The second key element in the process is the definition of system concepts to meet the requirements. This part of the process involves engine system and reactor contractor teams to develop alternative NTP system concepts that can be evaluated against specific attributes, as well as a reference configuration against which to compare system benefits and merits. Quality function deployment (QFD), as an excellent tool within Total Quality Management (TQM) techniques, can provide the required structure and provide a link to the voice of the customer in establishing critical system qualities and their relationships. The third element of the process is the consistent performance comparison. The comparison process involves validating developed concept data and quantifying system merits through analysis, computer modeling, simulation, and rapid prototyping of the proposed high risk NTP subsystems. The maximum amount possible of quantitative data will be developed and/or validated to be utilized in the QFD evaluation matrix. If upon evaluation of a new concept or its associated subsystems determine to have substantial merit, those features will be incorporated into the reference configuration for subsequent system definition and comparison efforts.

    The Aerosol Robotic Network (AERONET) database has evolved in measurement accuracy, data quality products, availability to the scientific community over the course of 21 years with the support of NASA, PHOTONS and all federated partners. This evolution is periodically manifested as a new data version release by carefully reprocessing the entire database with the most current algorithms that fundamentally change the database and ultimately the data products used by the community. The newest processing, Version 3, will be released in 2015 after the entire database is reprocessed and real-time data processing becomes operational. All V 3 algorithms have been developed, individually vetted and represent four main categories: aerosol optical depth (AOD) processing, inversion processing, database management and new products. The primary trigger for release of V 3 lies with cloud screening of the direct sun observations and computation of AOD that will fundamentally change all data available for analysis and all subsequent retrieval products. This presentation will illustrate the innovative approach used for cloud screening and assesses the elements of V3 AOD relative to the current version. We will also present the advances in the inversion product processing with emphasis on the random and systematic uncertainty estimates. This processing will be applied to the new hybrid measurement scenario intended to provide inversion retrievals for all solar zenith angles. We will introduce automatic quality assurance criteria that will allow near real time quality assured aerosol products necessary for real time satellite and model validation and assimilation. Last we will introduce the new management structure that will improve access to the data database. The current version 2 will be supported for at least two years after the initial release of V3 to maintain continuity for on going investigations.

    Powell, Mark; Mittman, David; Joswig, Joseph; Crockett, Thomas; Norris, Jeffrey

    2008-01-01

    Orchestrator is a software application infrastructure for telemetry monitoring, logging, processing, and distribution. The architecture has been applied to support operations of a variety of planetary rovers. Built in Java with the Eclipse Rich Client Platform, Orchestrator can run on most commonly used operating systems. The pipeline supports configurable parallel processing that can significantly reduce the time needed to process a large volume of data products. Processors in the pipeline implement a simple Java interface and declare their required input from upstream processors. Orchestrator is programmatically constructed by specifying a list of Java processor classes that are initiated at runtime to form the pipeline. Input dependencies are checked at runtime. Fault tolerance can be configured to attempt continuation of processing in the event of an error or failed input dependency if possible, or to abort further processing when an error is detected. This innovation also provides support for Java Message Service broadcasts of telemetry objects to clients and provides a file system and relational database logging of telemetry. Orchestrator supports remote monitoring and control of the pipeline using browser-based JMX controls and provides several integration paths for pre-compiled legacy data processors. At the time of this reporting, the Orchestrator architecture has been used by four NASA customers to build telemetry pipelines to support field operations. Example applications include high-volume stereo image capture and processing, simultaneous data monitoring and logging from multiple vehicles. Example telemetry processors used in field test operations support include vehicle position, attitude, articulation, GPS location, power, and stereo images.

    Hard exclusive processes in high energy electron proton scattering offer the opportunity to get access to a new generation of parton distributions, the so-called generalized parton distributions (GPDs). This functions provide more detailed informations about the structure of the nucleon than the usual PDFs obtained from DIS. In this work we present a detailed analysis of exclusive processes, especially of hard exclusive meson production. We investigated the influence of exclusive produced mesons on the semi-inclusive production of mesons at fixed target experiments like HERMES. Further we give a detailed analysis of higher order corrections (NLO) for the exclusive production of mesons in a very broad range of kinematics. (orig.)

    A welding method is provided for forming a weld joint between first and second elements of a workpiece. The method includes heating the first and second elements to form an interface of material in a plasticized or melted state interface between the elements. The interface material is then allowed to cool to a plasticized state if previously in a melted state. The interface material, while in the plasticized state, is then mixed, for example, using a grinding/extruding process, to remove any dendritic-type weld microstructures introduced into the interface material during the heating process.

  5. Authenticizing the Research Process

    Nora Elizondo-Schmelkes, MA, Ph.D. Candidate

    2011-06-01

    Full Text Available This study reflects the main concern of students (national and international who are trying to get a postgraduate degree in a third world (or “in means of development” country. The emergent problem found is that students have to finish their thesis or dissertation but they do not really know how to accomplish this goal. They resolve this problem by authenticizing the process as their own. The theory of authenticizing involves compassing their way to solve the problem of advancing in the research process. Compassing allows the student to authenticize his/her research process, making it a personal and „owned. process. The main categories of compassing are the intellectual, physical and emotional dimension patterns that the student has, learns and follows in order to finish the project and get a degree. Authenticizing implies to author with authenticity their thesis or dissertation. Compassing allows them to do this in their own way, at their own pace or time and with their own internal resources, strengths and weaknesses.

  10. Ultrahigh bandwidth signal processing

    Oxenløwe, Leif Katsuo

    2016-04-01

    Optical time lenses have proven to be very versatile for advanced optical signal processing. Based on a controlled interplay between dispersion and phase-modulation by e.g. four-wave mixing, the processing is phase-preserving, and hence useful for all types of data signals including coherent multi-level modulation formats. This has enabled processing of phase-modulated spectrally efficient data signals, such as orthogonal frequency division multiplexed (OFDM) signals. In that case, a spectral telescope system was used, using two time lenses with different focal lengths (chirp rates), yielding a spectral magnification of the OFDM signal. Utilising such telescopic arrangements, it has become possible to perform a number of interesting functionalities, which will be described in the presentation. This includes conversion from OFDM to Nyquist WDM, compression of WDM channels to a single Nyquist channel and WDM regeneration. These operations require a broad bandwidth nonlinear platform, and novel photonic integrated nonlinear platforms like aluminum gallium arsenide nano-waveguides used for 1.28 Tbaud optical signal processing will be described.

    With more and more photonic data presence in e-beam lithography, the need for efficient and accurate data fracturing is required to meet acceptable manufacturing cycle time. Large photonic based layouts now create high shot count patterns for VSB based tools. Multiple angles, sweeping curves, and non-orthogonal data create a challenge for today's e-beam tools that are more efficient on Manhattan style data. This paper describes techniques developed and used for creating fractured data for VSB based pattern generators. Proximity Effect Correction is also applied during the fracture process, taking into account variable shot sizes to apply for accuracy and design style. Choosing different fracture routines for pattern data on-the-fly allows for fast and efficient processing. Data interpretation is essential for processing curvilinear data as to its size, angle, and complexity. Fracturing complex angled data into "efficient" shot counts is no longer practical as shot creation now requires knowledge of the actual data content as seen in photonic based pattern data. Simulation and physical printing results prove the implementations for accuracy and write times compared to traditional VSB writing strategies on photonic data. Geometry tolerance is used as part of the fracturing algorithm for controlling edge placement accuracy and tuning to different e-beam processing parameters.

  16. BUSINESS PROCESS REENGINEERING

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2014-06-01

    Full Text Available Business process reengineering determines the change of organizational functions from an orientation focused on operations through a multidimensional approach. Former employees who were mere executors are now determined to take their own decisions and as a result the functional departments lose their reason to exist. Managers do not act anymore as supervisors, but mainly as mentors, while the employees focus more attention on customer needs and less than the head’s. Under these conditions, new organizational paradigms are required, the most important being that of learning organizations. In order to implement a reengineering of the economic processes and promoting a new organizational paradigm the information technology plays a decisive role. The article presents some results obtained in a research theme ANSTI funded by contract no. 501/2000. Economic and financial analysis is performed in order to know the current situation to achieve better results in the future. One of its objectives is the production analyzed as a labour process and the interaction elements of this process. The indicators investigated in the analysis of financial and economic activity of production reflect the development directions, the means and resources to accomplish predetermined objectives and express the results and effectiveness of what is expected.

  14. Quantum image processing?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mastriani, Mario

    2017-01-01

    This paper presents a number of problems concerning the practical (real) implementation of the techniques known as quantum image processing. The most serious problem is the recovery of the outcomes after the quantum measurement, which will be demonstrated in this work that is equivalent to a noise measurement, and it is not considered in the literature on the subject. It is noteworthy that this is due to several factors: (1) a classical algorithm that uses Dirac's notation and then it is coded in MATLAB does not constitute a quantum algorithm, (2) the literature emphasizes the internal representation of the image but says nothing about the classical-to-quantum and quantum-to-classical interfaces and how these are affected by decoherence, (3) the literature does not mention how to implement in a practical way (at the laboratory) these proposals internal representations, (4) given that quantum image processing works with generic qubits, this requires measurements in all axes of the Bloch sphere, logically, and (5) among others. In return, the technique known as quantum Boolean image processing is mentioned, which works with computational basis states (CBS), exclusively. This methodology allows us to avoid the problem of quantum measurement, which alters the results of the measured except in the case of CBS. Said so far is extended to quantum algorithms outside image processing too.

    2007-09-01

    Full Text Available Electrochemical discharge machining process is evolving as a promising micromachiningprocess. The experimental investigations in the present work substantiate this trend. In the presentwork, in situ, synchronised, transient temperature and current measurements have been carriedout. The need for the transient measurements arose due to the time-varying nature of the dischargeformation and time varying circuit current. Synchronised and transient measurements revealedthe discrete nature of the process. It also helped in formulating the basic mechanism for thedischarge formation and the material removal in the process. Temperature profile on workpieceand in electrochemical discharge machining cell is experimentally measured using pyrometer,and two varieties of K-type thermocouples. Surface topography of the discharge-affected zoneson the workpiece has been carried out using scanning electron microscope. Measurements andsurface topographical studies reveal the potential use of this process for machining in micronregime. With careful experimental set-up design, suitable supply voltage and its polarity, theprocess can be applied for both micromachining and micro-deposition. It can be extended formachining and or deposition of wide range of materials.

  17. Pattern evaporation process

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Z. Żółkiewicz

    2007-04-01

    Full Text Available The paper discusses the process of thermal evaporation of a foundry pattern. At several research-development centres, studies have been carried out to examine the physico-chemical phenomena that take place in foundry mould filled with polystyrene pattern when it is poured with molten metal. In the technique of evaporative patterns, the process of mould filling with molten metal (the said mould holding inside a polystyrene pattern is interrelated with the process of thermal decomposition of this pattern. The transformation of an evaporative pattern (e.g. made from foamed polystyrene from the solid into liquid and then gaseous state occurs as a result of the thermal effect that the liquid metal exerts onto this pattern. Consequently, at the liquid metal-pattern-mould phase boundary some physico-chemical phenomena take place, which until now have not been fully explained. When the pattern is evaporating, some solid and gaseous products are evolved, e.g. CO, CO2, H2, N2, and hydrocarbons, e.g. styrene, toluene, ethane, methane, benzene [16, 23]. The process of polystyrene pattern evaporation in foundry mould under the effect of molten metal is of a very complex nature and depends on many different factors, still not fully investigated. The kinetics of pattern evaporation is also affected by the technological properties of foundry mould, e.g. permeability, thermophysical properties, parameters of the gating system, temperature of pouring, properties of pattern material, and the size of pattern-liquid metal contact surface.

  18. Biosphere Process Model Report

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    J. Schmitt

    2000-05-25

    To evaluate the postclosure performance of a potential monitored geologic repository at Yucca Mountain, a Total System Performance Assessment (TSPA) will be conducted. Nine Process Model Reports (PMRs), including this document, are being developed to summarize the technical basis for each of the process models supporting the TSPA model. These reports cover the following areas: (1) Integrated Site Model; (2) Unsaturated Zone Flow and Transport; (3) Near Field Environment; (4) Engineered Barrier System Degradation, Flow, and Transport; (5) Waste Package Degradation; (6) Waste Form Degradation; (7) Saturated Zone Flow and Transport; (8) Biosphere; and (9) Disruptive Events. Analysis/Model Reports (AMRs) contain the more detailed technical information used to support TSPA and the PMRs. The AMRs consists of data, analyses, models, software, and supporting documentation that will be used to defend the applicability of each process model for evaluating the postclosure performance of the potential Yucca Mountain repository system. This documentation will ensure the traceability of information from its source through its ultimate use in the TSPA-Site Recommendation (SR) and in the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) analysis processes. The objective of the Biosphere PMR is to summarize (1) the development of the biosphere model, and (2) the Biosphere Dose Conversion Factors (BDCFs) developed for use in TSPA. The Biosphere PMR does not present or summarize estimates of potential radiation doses to human receptors. Dose calculations are performed as part of TSPA and will be presented in the TSPA documentation. The biosphere model is a component of the process to evaluate postclosure repository performance and regulatory compliance for a potential monitored geologic repository at Yucca Mountain, Nevada. The biosphere model describes those exposure pathways in the biosphere by which radionuclides released from a potential repository could reach a human receptor

    Clune, T.; Schmidt, G.; Kuo, K.; Bauer, M.; Oloso, H.

    2013-01-01

    Many of the aspects of the climate system that are of the greatest interest (e.g., the sensitivity of the system to external forcings) are emergent properties that arise via the complex interplay between disparate processes. This is also true for climate models most diagnostics are not a function of an isolated portion of source code, but rather are affected by multiple components and procedures. Thus any model-observation mismatch is hard to attribute to any specific piece of code or imperfection in a specific model assumption. An alternative approach is to identify diagnostics that are more closely tied to specific processes -- implying that if a mismatch is found, it should be much easier to identify and address specific algorithmic choices that will improve the simulation. However, this approach requires looking at model output and observational data in a more sophisticated way than the more traditional production of monthly or annual mean quantities. The data must instead be filtered in time and space for examples of the specific process being targeted.We are developing a data analysis environment called PROcess-Based Explorer (PROBE) that seeks to enable efficient and systematic computation of process-based diagnostics on very large sets of data. In this environment, investigators can define arbitrarily complex filters and then seamlessly perform computations in parallel on the filtered output from their model. The same analysis can be performed on additional related data sets (e.g., reanalyses) thereby enabling routine comparisons between model and observational data. PROBE also incorporates workflow technology to automatically update computed diagnostics for subsequent executions of a model. In this presentation, we will discuss the design and current status of PROBE as well as share results from some preliminary use cases.

  20. Retinomorphic image processing.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ghosh, Kuntal; Bhaumik, Kamales; Sarkar, Sandip

    2008-01-01

    The present work is aimed at understanding and explaining some of the aspects of visual signal processing at the retinal level while exploiting the same towards the development of some simple techniques in the domain of digital image processing. Classical studies on retinal physiology revealed the nature of contrast sensitivity of the receptive field of bipolar or ganglion cells, which lie in the outer and inner plexiform layers of the retina. To explain these observations, a difference of Gaussian (DOG) filter was suggested, which was subsequently modified to a Laplacian of Gaussian (LOG) filter for computational ease in handling two-dimensional retinal inputs. Till date almost all image processing algorithms, used in various branches of science and engineering had followed LOG or one of its variants. Recent observations in retinal physiology however, indicate that the retinal ganglion cells receive input from a larger area than the classical receptive fields. We have proposed an isotropic model for the non-classical receptive field of the retinal ganglion cells, corroborated from these recent observations, by introducing higher order derivatives of Gaussian expressed as linear combination of Gaussians only. In digital image processing, this provides a new mechanism of edge detection on one hand and image half-toning on the other. It has also been found that living systems may sometimes prefer to "perceive" the external scenario by adding noise to the received signals in the pre-processing level for arriving at better information on light and shade in the edge map. The proposed model also provides explanation to many brightness-contrast illusions hitherto unexplained not only by the classical isotropic model but also by some other Gestalt and Constructivist models or by non-isotropic multi-scale models. The proposed model is easy to implement both in the analog and digital domain. A scheme for implementation in the analog domain generates a new silicon retina
