    Faretra, G

    1979-01-01

    Lauretta Bender, internationally known as one of the pioneers in the field of child psychiatry, has written extensively on autism and other forms of childhood disturbance. This paper reviews and analyzes the development of her theories on autism, especially as it relates to childhood schizophrenia. Bender believes that the condition is one of the manifestations of schizophrenia occurring in earliest childhood. This review traces, through her writings and through personal contact, the development and elaboration of this view, and discusses influences on her work of Schilder, Gesell and others.

  4. DE BENDER ( SEGUNDA VERSIÓN

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    CÉSAR MERINO SOTO

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available Hace algunos años, se ha publicado el nuevo Test Gestáltico de Bender, segunda versión (Ben- der-II. Esta nueva versión usa el Sistema de Calificación Global (SCG para obtener los pun- tajes, que enfatiza la reproducción exacta de los diseños; junto con otros cambios estructurales, consiste en la mayor modificación realizada al Test de Bender para evaluar la habilidad visomo- tora en varias etapas del desarrollo humano. Pero aún hay pocas investigaciones que han estudiado su funcionamiento psicométrico en muestras his- panas y especialmente el error de medición en el procedimiento de la calificación. Se investigó el efecto de la variabilidad de la calificación del nuevo Bender-II sobre su validez de constructo con una medida de inteligencia. Se administraron el Bender-II y el Test Breve de In- teligencia de Kaufman (K-BIT a 60 niños prees- colares, y tres calificadores calificaron las figu- ras reproducidas mediante procedimientos es- tandarizados y el SCG. El análisis comparó las correlaciones obtenidas por cada calificador en- tre los puntajes del Bender-II y del K-BIT. Se ha- lló que la variabilidad de los puntajes provenien- te de la interpretación del SCG afectó mode- radamente las correlaciones con el puntaje total y de las subescalas del K-BIT. Un calificador fue menos confiable y sus puntajes mostraron al me- nos 5% menos variancia compartida al compa- rarlo con los otros calificadores. Se concluye que la interpretación de la validez se puede dis- torsionar aun cuando el error de medición es moderado pues interaccionan con otras fuentes de error. Esto sugiere que se debe garantizar un buen acuerdo en la calificación de pruebas que requieran juicio.

    Caskey, W E; Larson, G L

    1977-12-01

    Using Otis-Lennon IQs 104 kindergarten children were paired and divided into two groups. The first was administered a group Bender test based on transparencies of the Bender designs and 10 to 14 days later the standard individual Bender Test. The second group was administered the Bender tests in reverse order. A significant correlation was found between Koppitz scores from the group and the individual Bender scores. It is suggested that the group Bender test might be used as a screening device without significant loss of information on a later administration of the individual Bender test.

  9. Modeling of a Dielectric Elastomer Bender Actuator

    Paul White

    2014-07-01

    Full Text Available The current smallest self-contained modular robot uses a shape memory alloy, which is inherently inefficient, slow and difficult to control. We present the design, fabrication and demonstration of a module based on dielectric elastomer actuation. The module uses a pair of bowtie dielectric elastomer actuators in an agonist-antagonist configuration and is seven times smaller than previously demonstrated. In addition, we present an intuitive model for the bowtie configuration that predicts the performance with experimental verification. Based on this model and the experimental analysis, we address the theoretical limitations and advantages of this antagonistic bender design relative to other dielectric elastomer actuators.

  10. Analytical modeling of sandwich beam for piezoelectric bender elements

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2007-01-01

    Piezoelectric bender elements are widely used as electromechanical sensors and actuators. An analytical sandwich beam model for piezoelectric bender elements was developed based on the first-order shear deformation theory (FSDT), which assumes a single rotation angle for the whole cross-section and a quadratic distribution function for coupled electric potential in piezoelectric layers, and corrects the effect of transverse shear strain on the electric displacement integration. Free vibration analysis of simplysupported bender elements was carried out and the numerical results showed that, solutions of the present model for various thickness-to-length ratios are compared well with the exact two-dimensional solutions, which presents an efficient and accurate model for analyzing dynamic electromechanical responses of bender elements.

  19. Obituary: David Fulmer Bender, 1913-2004

    Science.gov (United States)

    Miller, Sylvia L.

    2004-12-01

    David Fulmer Bender died in San Diego, California, on 13 September 2004, at the age of 91. His heart stopped suddenly while he was dancing. His pioneering work in establishing comprehensive, computer-accessible ephemerides of asteroids and comets found many applications, including the first-ever visit to an asteroid, Gaspra, by an interplanetary spacecraft. Dave was born in Reno, Nevada, on 10 February 1913, to Homer Charles Bender and Susan Bowers Bender. The family moved to Spokane, Washington, while Dave was very young. His father was a civil engineer and a graduate of MIT, who helped design bridges and dams throughout the Northwest, including the Grand Coolie Dam. Dave had a brother, Phillip (now deceased), who was one year younger. Advancing rapidly in the Spokane school system, Dave finished high school when he was 15 years old. At 16 he moved to Pasadena, California, and began his studies at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). In addition to pursuing his course work, he was active in track and football, a tendency toward physical exercise that stayed with him for the rest of his life. It was probably during these years that Dave heard a lecture by Albert Einstein, as mentioned to colleagues many years later. Dave received a BS degree in physics in 1933, an MS in 1934, and a PhD in 1937, all from Caltech. His dissertation was entitled, "The Index of Refraction of Air in the Photographic Infrared." During his sophomore year he found his way to Pomona College in Claremont, California, where he met his future wife, Elizabeth Boyden at a social gathering. They were married in 1935. Dave's academic career spanned the years from 1937 to 1970, initially at Louisiana State University, Vanderbilt University, and then Fisk. As a life-long pacifist and conscientious objector, Dave served alternate duty during World War II. In 1946 he joined the faculty of the physics department at Whittier College in California, where he became the department chair and

  20. Modeling of sensor function for piezoelectric bender elements

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2008-01-01

    An analytical sandwich beam model for piezoelectric bender elements is derived based on the first-order shear deformation theory (FSDT), which assumes a single rotation angle for the whole cross-section and a quadratic distribution for coupled electric potential in piezoelectric layers. Shear coefficient is introduced to correct the effect of transverse shear strain on shear force and the electric displacement integration. Static and free vibration analyses of simply-supported bender elements are carried out for the sensor function. The results illustrate the high accuracy of the present model compared with the exact 2D solutions.

    The Developmental Test of Visual-motor Integration (Beery) and the Bender-Gestalt test (Bender) were administered to 44 second-grade children. Developmental age scores (Koppitz scoring) and age equivalents (Beery) were compared. The correlation of .43 between Bender (Koppitz scoring) and Beery scores was moderate but statistically significant. A t test for dependent groups indicated a significant difference between the means on the Bender and Beery tests. These results confirm that neither test should be utilized as the sole indicator of visual-motor perception.

    Differential Item Functioning (DIF) refers to items that do not function the same way for comparable members of different groups. The present study focuses on analyzing and classifying sex-related differential item functioning in the Bender Visual-Motor Gestalt Test. Subjects were 1,052 children attending public schools (513 boys, 539 girls, ages 6-10 years). The protocols were scored using the Bender Graduated Scoring System, which evaluates only the distortion criterion using the Rasch logistic response model. The scoring system fit the Rasch model, although two items were found to be biased by sex. When analyzing differential functioning of items for boys and girls separately, the number of differentially functioning items was equal.

    2008-01-01

    The bender element testing features its in-plane directivity,which allows using bender elements to measure the shear wave velocities in a wider range of in-plane configurations besides the standard tip-to-tip alignment.This paper proposed a novel bender element testing technique for measuring the horizontal shear wave velocity of soils,where the bender elements are surface-mounted and the axes of the source and receiver elements are parallel to each other.The preliminary tests performed on model ground of silica sand showed that,by properly determining the travel distance and time of the shear waves,the surface-mounted bender elements can perform as accurately as the conventional "tip-to-tip" configuration.Potentially,the present system provides a promising nondestructive tool for characterizing geomaterials and site conditions both in laboratory and in the fields.

    Rossini, E D; Kaspar, J C

    1987-01-01

    We evaluated the concurrent validity of the revised Bender-Gestalt emotional indicators (Koppitz, 1975) among three groups of children in the 7- to 10-year age range: adjustment disorder, behavior disorder, and normal control. The concurrent validity of the emotional indicators total score was demonstrated. Notably, with the developmental level controlled, both clinical groups produced significantly more emotional indicators than the control group, although the two clinical groups could not be differentiated. Nominal-data analyses of the 13 individual emotional indicators indicated that three specific indicators (confused order, large size, boxed figures) possessed validity as pathognomonic signs. We discuss issues concerning the use of the emotional indicators in clinical practice.

  10. Design and Scheduling of Microgrids using Benders Decomposition

    2016-11-21

    The distribution feeder laterals in a distribution feeder with relatively high PV generation as compared to the load can be operated as microgrids to achieve reliability, power quality and economic benefits. However, renewable resources are intermittent and stochastic in nature. A novel approach for sizing and scheduling an energy storage system and microturbine for reliable operation of microgrids is proposed. The size and schedule of an energy storage system and microturbine are determined using Benders' decomposition, considering PV generation as a stochastic resource.

  11. The Southern California Sensory Integration Tests (Ayres) and the Bender Gestalt: a correlative study.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kimball, J G

    1977-01-01

    The Southern California Sensory Integration Tests (SCSIT) and the Bender Gestalt are two measures used to evaluate children with suspected perceptual-motor deficits. Since these tests are used primarily by two groups of professionals, occupational therapists and psychologists, it was thought that studying the correlations between these two tests might help psychologists to know which children needed to be referred to an occupational therapist for sensory integrative evaluation, and might help the occupational therapist to understand the psychologist's use of the Bender Gestalt. The use of the Bender by the occupational therapist as a screening device for sensory integrative dysfunction was also investigated. The SCSIT and Bender were given to 26 children with suspected sensory integrative dysfunction. Scores on the Bender were found to be predictive of grouped scores on the Form and Space Perception and Praxis-Tactile sections of the SCSIT, but not of the Postural and Bilateral Integration section. It was concluded that when the Bender is used as a screening device for sensory integrative dysfunction, some measure of postural mechanisms must be included. Correlations between the Bender and individual tests of the SCSIT were also studied.

    2013-02-01

    Full Text Available This study investigated validity evidences by contrasting groups for the Bender (B-SPG and DFH-Escala Sisto. The instruments were administered to 244 pupils, being 50.4% boys and all of them aged from seven to 10 years, with an average of eight years (DP=1,08 attending from first to fourth grades of the basic education of a public school in the state of São Paulo. The tests were collectively administered and the slides of the Bender test were projected in the blackboard to be copied by the children. Differences between the extreme groups of the DFH in relation to the Bender scores were evidenced in all the studied situations. It was concluded that the Gestaltic Test furnishes an estimative of the intellectual capacities of children and differentiates those with bigger scores in the DFH from those less scored.

    The Bender-Gestalt and the Developmental Test of Visual-motor Integration were administered to two groups of 40 children each, ages 7 through 10 yr. Developmental age scores (Koppitz scoring) and age equivalents (Revised Beery manual) were obtained. Children screened for learning disabilities were selected for one group and children enrolled in regular classrooms were selected for another group. The correlation of .74 between the Bender and Beery test scores was high and statistically significant for the learning-disabled group. The correlation of .36 was low though statistically significant for the regular students, which suggests the groups performed differently on the tests. A significant mean difference of 9 mo. was noted between the Bender and Beery scores.

    2007-12-01

    Normative data are presented for Bender test performance, following the system of Koppitz, of 695 Mexican students between 5.0 and 12.1 yr. old (M = 8.7, SD = 2.01) and belonging to different socioeconomic status. The data are compared with the normative group of U.S. students used by Koppitz and with a representative sample of children from Barcelona, Spain. The results indicate that the total number of Bender errors decreased with increasing age of the children and that significant differences existed with respect to socioeconomic status. The comparison of these data with U.S. and Spanish children shows significant differences in all age groups, with the Mexican children scoring lowest. Differences in quality of schooling and in other aspects of education could explain the variability in Bender test performance.

    The present study was designed to evaluate the relative efficacy of two different scoring systems (Koppitz, 1975; Lacks, 1984) for use in evaluating Bender-Gestalt performance by adolescents. Normative data are presented for the two scoring systems with a sample of "normal" controls (N = 150), emotionally disturbed (N = 140), and mentally retarded/neurologically impaired adolescents (N = 47), aged 12-17. Results suggested that age and psychopathology were not related to the quality of the Bender-Gestalt reproductions of these subjects. An inverse relationship was found between cognitive ability and visual motor skills. Data obtained from these samples of adolescents showed a high degree of consistency between the scoring systems, which suggests that either scoring procedure is suitable for evaluating the Bender-Gestalt performance of adolescents.

    2011-02-01

    The present study was undertaken to provide data on the Bender-Gestalt test for children aged 5 to 11 in Turkey. Although it is well documented that sociocultural factors are important in cognitive evaluations, the effects of type of school and differing educational opportunities provided by these schools on the Bender-Gestalt test have not been previously investigated. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of age, sex, and school type on Bender-Gestalt performance. The test was individually administered to 484 children between the ages of 5 and 11 years. The children were enrolled in either public or private schools. Koppitz's Developmental Scoring System was utilized. The results indicated that older children performed with fewer errors. Girls performed with fewer errors than boys. Finally, as expected, private school children outperformed their public school peers. The results are discussed with respect to the importance of taking into account various educational factors in utilizing commonly used tests.

    Highlights: Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Extensive precipitation of {gamma} Prime particles resulted in high hardness and ductility. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Alignment and coalescence of {gamma} Prime precipitates induced decrease in strength. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Standard heat treatment for wrought Rene Prime 41 alloy is not suitable for the LMD alloy. - Abstract: Ni-base superalloy Rene Prime 41 was produced by the laser melting deposition (LMD) manufacturing process. The LMD material was solution treated at 1065 Degree-Sign C for 4 h followed by air quenching and aged at 760 Degree-Sign C for 16 h followed by air cooling. Microstructure of the as-deposited, solution treated and solution-aged alloys were characterized by scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy, and the tensile properties and hardness were tested. The solution-aged Rene Prime 41 superalloy showed high hardness, low strength and low ductility. The extensive precipitation of {gamma} Prime resulted in high hardness and ductility, and the subsequent alignment and coalescence of {gamma} Prime precipitates induced low strength. The structure-property relationships of the alloy under three different heat treating conditions were studied and results indicated that the standard heat treatment recommended for wrought Rene Prime 41 was not suitable for LMD alloy and had to be modified to realize optimum mechanical properties.

    Data are presented to assess the use of the Koppitz scoring system for the Bender-Gestalt Test in a sample (N = 87) of behaviorally and emotionally disturbed adolescents. Results suggested that age was modestly related to Koppitz Developmental scores, an indication that visual-motor skills continue to develop beyond age 11. Scores were related to spatial perception skills as measured on the WISC-R. Gender, primary psychiatric diagnosis, educational tests, and MMPI scores were not related to Bender performance. Findings are discussed in terms of a need for additional research into the utility of the Bender as a measure of visual-motor skills in adolescents.

  8. A benders decomposition approach to multiarea stochastic distributed utility planning

    Science.gov (United States)

    McCusker, Susan Ann

    Until recently, small, modular generation and storage options---distributed resources (DRs)---have been installed principally in areas too remote for economic power grid connection and sensitive applications requiring backup capacity. Recent regulatory changes and DR advances, however, have lead utilities to reconsider the role of DRs. To a utility facing distribution capacity bottlenecks or uncertain load growth, DRs can be particularly valuable since they can be dispersed throughout the system and constructed relatively quickly. DR value is determined by comparing its costs to avoided central generation expenses (i.e., marginal costs) and distribution investments. This requires a comprehensive central and local planning and production model, since central system marginal costs result from system interactions over space and time. This dissertation develops and applies an iterative generalized Benders decomposition approach to coordinate models for optimal DR evaluation. Three coordinated models exchange investment, net power demand, and avoided cost information to minimize overall expansion costs. Local investment and production decisions are made by a local mixed integer linear program. Central system investment decisions are made by a LP, and production costs are estimated by a stochastic multi-area production costing model with Kirchhoff's Voltage and Current Law constraints. The nested decomposition is a new and unique method for distributed utility planning that partitions the variables twice to separate local and central investment and production variables, and provides upper and lower bounds on expected expansion costs. Kirchhoff's Voltage Law imposes nonlinear, nonconvex constraints that preclude use of LP if transmission capacity is available in a looped transmission system. This dissertation develops KVL constraint approximations that permit the nested decomposition to consider new transmission resources, while maintaining linearity in the three

  14. Oxidation behavior and mechanism of powder metallurgy Rene95 nickel based superalloy between 800 and 1000 deg. C

    2010-10-01

    The oxidation behaviors of powder metallurgy (PM) Rene95 Ni-based superalloy in the temperature range of 800-1000 deg. C are investigated in air by virtue of isothermal oxidation testing, X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. The results show that the oxidation kinetics follows a square power law as the time extends at each temperature. The oxidation layers are detected to be composed of Cr{sub 2}O{sub 3}, TiO{sub 2} and a small amount of NiCr{sub 2}O{sub 4}. The cross-sectional morphologies indicate that the oxidation layer consists of three parts: Cr-rich oxide layer, Cr and Ti duplex oxide layer, and oxidation affected zone. Theoretical analyses of oxidation kinetics and thicknesses of oxidation layers confirm that the activation energy of oxidation of PM Rene95 superalloy is 165.32 kJ mol{sup -1} and the oxidation process is controlled by diffusions of oxygen, Cr, and Ti. Accordingly, a diffusion-controlled mechanism is suggested to understand the oxidation behaviors of PM Rene95 superalloy at elevated temperatures.

    The present study was undertaken to provide preliminary data for norms on the Bender-Gestalt Test for 253 children ages 5 yr., 5 mo. to 11 yr., 10 mo. in Turkey. The Koppitz Developmental Scoring System gave mean error scores of 4.2 (SD = 3.3) for girls and 3.6 (SD = 3.0) for boys. The mean error scores obtained by all age groups are presented and compared with other cross-cultural data. These scores decreased across age groups, supporting Bender's maturational hypothesis of the test. The present sample performed at a higher developmental level than the Koppitz normative sample for the 5- and 6-year age groups, while means for other age groups were similar to the original U.S. norms. That this pattern is supported in other cross-cultural studies is discussed as well as the importance of developing local norms for visual spatial tests.

    Vannoni, Maurizio; Freijo Martín, Idoia; Sinn, Harald

    2016-07-01

    One of the classical devices used to tune a mirror on an X-ray optical setup is a mechanical bender. This is often designed in such a way that the mirror is held with clamps on both ends; a motor is then used to put a torque on the clamps, inducing a cylindrical shape of the mirror surface. A mechanical bender with this design was recently characterized, to bend a 950 mm-long mirror up to a radius of curvature of 10 km. The characterization was performed using a large-aperture Fizeau interferometer with an angled incidence setup. Some particular and critical effects were investigated, such as calibration, hysteresis, twisting and long-term stability.

    Full Text Available Problem statement: Dynamic Quadratic Assignment Problem (DQAP is NP hard problem. Benders decomposition based heuristics method is applied to the equivalent mixed-integer linear programming problem of the original DQAP. Approach: Approximate Benders Decomposition (ABD generates the ensemble of a subset of feasible layout for Approximate Dynamic Programming (ADP to determine the sub-optimal optimal solution. A Trust-Region Constraint (TRC for the master problem in ABD and a Successive Adaptation Procedure (SAP were implemented to accelerate the convergence rate of the method. Results: The sub-optimal solutions of large-scales DQAPs from the method and its variants were compared well with other metaheuristic methods. Conclusion: Overall performance of the method is comparable to other metaheuristic methods for large-scale DQAPs.

  1. Characterization of a mechanical bender for x-ray mirrors at European XFEL

    Science.gov (United States)

    Freijo Martín, Idoia; Vannoni, Maurizio; Music, Valerija; Sinn, Harald

    2016-09-01

    The European XFEL will generate extremely short and intense X-ray laser pulses of high coherence and nearly diffraction-limited divergence. Guiding these X-rays beams over a distance of more than 1 km to the experiments requires an extreme precision in pointing stability of beamline components like mirrors and gratings and also a control of the divergence of the beam. The specifications of the X-ray mirrors that will be able to transport, distribute and focus the beam are quite challenging. The European XFEL mirrors for the beam transport are 950 mm long and the optical surface specifications are 2 nm Peak-To-Valley. Some of the mirrors will have bending capabilities in order to focus the beam in the right position and with nanometer accuracy. This is implemented using a mechanical bender that will ensure stability of the optics in the nanometer range and will also offer the possibility to correct for mechanical or temperature drifts. We present here the characterization of a mechanical bender that was done using two instruments, a Large Aperture Fizeau interferometer and a system of three capacitive sensors. The bender is designed in a way that the mirror is hold with clamps on both ends and a symmetric torque is applied on the clamps, inducing a cylindrical shape on the mirror surface. Several long-term stability measurements were done, as well as the characterization of bending capabilities. The parameters retrieved from the measurements are the sagitta and therefore the radius of curvature for different bending positions. The behavior of the variation of the shape of the mirror was also studied. The information gathered from our measurements will be used to optimize the final design of the bender.

The results for linear optics agree with those already presented by V.\\ Lebedev (Nov.\\ 18, 2013). Second order optics is not sensitive to the shape of the fringe fields and formulas are given. It is shown that the proposed electrode shape that linearizes the vertical electric field is no advantage to this order.

    2014-06-01

    This is a transcultural study of a sample of Peruvian and Brazilian children using the Bender-Gradual Scoring System (B-SPG), which considers shape distortion as the only aspect to be analyzed, assuming that perceptual-motor maturity is independent of cultural context. The study verified that the scoring system has psychometric qualities such that it may be applied in another country. The sample consisted of 231 children, ages 6 to 10 yr., 108 from different districts of the province Lima in Peru, and 123 children from three states in Brazil. During test application, the figures were projected to children in groups. Scoring the protocols for errors was conducted by psychologists experienced in interpreting and correcting the Bender-SPG, who rigorously followed instructions in Portuguese and Spanish. The results obtained with Differential Item Functioning (DIF) analysis indicated that Figures 1 and 4 presented DIF, one favoring Brazilian children and the other Peruvian children. Thus, it was concluded that the overall scores did not favor either population and the Bender-SPG could be used to evaluate perceptual-motor maturity in both countries.

  5. Aspects of Perturbation theory in Quantum Mechanics: The BenderWu Mathematica package

    CERN Document Server

    Sulejmanpasic, Tin

    2016-01-01

    We discuss a general setup which allows the study of the perturbation theory of an arbitrary, locally harmonic 1D quantum mechanical potential as well as its multi-variable (many-body) generalization. The latter may form a prototype for regularized quantum field theory. We first generalize the method of Bender-Wu, and derive exact recursion relations which allow the determination of the perturbative wave-function and energy corrections to an arbitrary order, at least in principle. For 1D systems, we implement these equations in an easy to use Mathematica package we call BenderWu. Our package enables quick home-computer computation of high orders of perturbation theory (about 100 orders in 10-30 seconds, and 250 orders in 1-2h) and enables practical study of a large class of problems in Quantum Mechanics. We have two hopes concerning the BenderWu package. One is that due to resurgence, large amount of non-perturbative information, such as non-perturbative energies and wave-functions (e.g. WKB wave functions), ...

    2006-02-01

    This study investigated the relationships of visuomotor constructs as measured by the Bender-Gestalt II with the subtests of the WISC-III. A factor analysis included the standardized Copy and Recall scores of the Bender-Gestalt II and subtest scores of the WISC-III. The Copy score was predicted to load on measures of visual and spatial thinking and the Recall score on a short-term memory factor. The results of a principal components analysis suggest a four-factor solution with the Bender-Gestalt II Copy score loading on a visual and spatial thinking factor primarily with WISC-III Perceptual Organization subtests. The Recall score loaded on a visual and spatial thinking factor as well as a short-term memory factor with the WISC-III Digit Span subtest. The results suggest the Bender-Gestalt II Copy subtest shared commonality with the visual and spatial tasks given the similarity in the visuomotor demands of each test and was less influenced by processing speed or cultural knowledge than other tests on the visual and spatial thinking factor. Also, results suggest Bender-Gestalt II Recall measures elements of both visual and spatial thinking as well as aspects of short-term memory and memory retrieval. Clinical guidelines for co-administration and underlying processing demands are discussed.

    Visual-motor skill is fundamental to human development and is an important component of psychological evaluations. The goal of the present study was to determine whether there is a correlation between visual-motor development, as measured by the Bender Visual-Motor Gestalt Test (Bender test), and sexual maturity in adolescents, based on the Tanner Stages in Adolescents. 134 adolescents from 10 to 15 years of age participated in the study. The Bender test and the Raven's Progressive Matrices Test were employed. The measures were administered individually and information on sexual maturity and the presence of developmental disorders was collected from medical charts. The results of the Bender test were not affected by gender, age, schooling, or changes stemming from puberty, but were significantly affected by having repeated a school year and by developmental disorders. An association was found with Raven's scores. The Bender test proved sensitive to developmental disorders in adolescence. No association was found between visual-motor development and sexual maturity in adolescents.

  11. The Bender Gestalt test for 5- to 15-year old Brazilian children: norms and validity.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Brito, G N; Santos, T R

    1996-11-01

    Norms for two modalities (normal and stress) of the Bender Gestalt test were developed for the neuropsychological assessment of children in the greater Rio de Janeiro area. For each modality, a measure of performance, a measure of speed and a measure of emotional disturbance were obtained. A total of 398 children (199 males and 199 females), 5 to 15 years old, who were attending a public school in Niterói were the subjects of this study. Analysis of the data revealed that age, but not sex, had a significant effect on performance, but not on speed, in both modalities such that older children made fewer errors than younger children. Also, the number of emotional indicators significantly decreased with age. Additionally, boys needed more time to complete the normal modality than girls, and showed a higher number of emotional indicators in both modalities. The Bender test was found to be valid in the sense that children who had failed at least one grade in school performed worse than those who had not. The number of emotional indicators was shown to be valid since it was significantly correlated with factors such as hyperactivity-conduct problem, and independent functioning, and inattention of the Composite Teacher Rating Scale (Brito GNO and Pinto RCA (1991). Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology, 13: 417-418). We conclude that the Bender test is valid for use in schoolchildren, and the number of emotional indicators is valid as an index of psychopathology, but sex and age should be considered when using the norms in Brazil.

    The test-retest reliability of the Bender-Gestalt Test was investigated for 157 second graders from two middle-class schools. The test-retest interval ranged from 11 days through 15 days. Testing was conducted in accordance with the Koppitz procedure, but errors of distortion, rotation, integration, and preservation were determined separately. The total time required to reproduce the designs were also recorded. The reliability estimate for the Koppitz score was generally satisfactory, but the estimates obtained for the four separate error categories and total working time were substantially smaller.

    Coban, Elvin; Hooker, John N.

    Logic-based Benders decomposition can combine mixed integer programming and constraint programming to solve planning and scheduling problems much faster than either method alone. We find that a similar technique can be beneficial for solving pure scheduling problems as the problem size scales up. We solve single-facility non-preemptive scheduling problems with time windows and long time horizons that are divided into segments separated by shutdown times (such as weekends). The objective is to find feasible solutions, minimize makespan, or minimize total tardiness.

  15. Competing fatigue mechanisms in Nickel-base superalloy Rene 88DT

    Science.gov (United States)

    Chang, Paul N.

    Nickel base superalloys exhibit superior high temperature mechanical properties required for aircraft engine components. It has been known that the processing of these alloys by the powder metallurgy route introduces inclusions inside the material. The presence of such inclusions often leads to competing failure modes in fatigue that is described by a step-wise or two distinct S-N curves involving both the surface and internally-initiated cracks, resulting in large uncertainties of fatigue life. A clear understanding of such behavior is yet to be established. The principal objective of this research is to examine the effect of inclusions on the extent of fatigue failure competition from surface and internal initiators at two different specimen test volumes. Experimental fatigue testing has been performed to explore how the presence of inclusions affects the competing fatigue failure modes. In addition, how the competing failure modes will behave with changes in the specimen size was also studied. Two groups of material each with two different specimen sizes were used in this study. It has been shown that the two crack initiation mechanisms occurred in the small unseeded Rene 88DT specimens tested at 650ºC over the stress range tested. Additionally, the fatigue lives were reduced with increase in specimen volume. All fatigue failures in seeded material occurred due to crack initiations from the seeded inclusions. In the fatigue life of seeded material, two competing and separate S-N curves were found in small test volume, whereas, in the large test volume, the regions were separated by a "step" in S-N curve. It has been found that the largest inclusion size observed in metallographic surfaces was smaller than the size determined from the fatigue failure origin. An analysis method based on extreme value statistics developed by Murakami was used to predict the largest size of inclusion in the test volume. The results of this study clearly show that competition for

    2006-01-01

    The low-cycle fatigue behavior of powder metallurgy Rene95 alloy containing surface inclusions was investigated by in-situ observation with scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The process of fatigue crack initiation and early stage of propagation behavior indicates that fatigue crack mainly occurs at the interface between the inclusion and the matrix. The effect of inclusion on the fatigue crack initiation and the early stage of crack growth was very obvious. The fatigue crack growth path in the matrix is similar to the shape of inclusion made on the basis of fatigue fracture image analysis. The empiric relation between the surface and inside crack growth length, near a surface inclusion, can be expressed. Therefore, the fatigue crack growth rate or life of P/M Rene95 alloy including the inclusions can be evaluated on the basis of the measurable surface crack length parameter. In addition, the effect of two inclusions on the fatigue crack initiation behavior was investigated by the in-situ observation with SEM.

    The Bender Gestalt test of visuomotor coordination was applied to a sample of Iranian children (N = 1,600) aged between 6.0 years and 10 years and 11 months attending grades 1 through 5 of 16 public primary schools in Shiraz city, southern Iran. The administration of the test and its scoring followed the standard procedures recommended by Koppitz. The reliability of the test in its new context was investigated through readministering it to a group of 60 children after four weeks, the r being .77. The validity of the test was established by comparing scores of children at different age levels and by correlating test results with marks obtained in two sets of examinations, results of Goodenough Harris Draw-A-Person Test and indices of parental education and occupation. The results are mostly in the expected direction and indicate that the Bender Gestalt test may be used as a simple measure of cognitive-intellectual development in Iran. Observed differences between Iranian norms and those of Koppitz (1963, 1975) for American children are briefly discussed and explained.

    2016-10-01

    This paper presents results of studies of an application of a new method of piezo bender actuators modelling. A special hysteresis simulation model was developed and is presented. The model is based on a geometrical deformation of main hysteresis loop. The piezoelectric effect is described and the history of the hysteresis modelling is briefly reviewed. Firstly, a simple model for main loop modelling is proposed. Then, a geometrical description of the non-saturated hysteresis is presented and its modelling method is introduced. The modelling makes use of the function describing the geometrical shape of the two hysteresis main curves, which can be defined theoretically or obtained by measurement. These main curves are stored in the memory and transformed geometrically in order to obtain the minor curves. Such model was prepared in the Matlab-Simulink software, but can be easily implemented using any programming language and applied in an on-line controller. In comparison to the other known simulation methods, the one presented in the paper is easy to understand, and uses simple arithmetical equations, allowing to quickly obtain the inversed model of hysteresis. The inversed model was further used for compensation of a non-saturated hysteresis of the piezo bender actuator and results have also been presented in the paper.

    An extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) beam-line for X-ray absorption studies using energy dispersive geometry and position sensitive detector is being developed for the INDUS-II synchrotron source. The optical design of the beam-line has been completed based on the working principle that a single crystal bent in the shape of an ellipse by a crystal bender would act as a dispersing as well as focusing element. The heart of the beam-line is the crystal bender which has been designed on the basis of the principle of four-point bending and has been fabricated indigenously. The crystal bender is capable of producing pre-defined elliptical curvature on a crystal surface by applying different couples at the two-ends of the crystal which has variable width along its length. The focusing property of the crystal bender has been tested using a laser source and has been compared with the theoretically simulated results.

    2010-10-01

    Visual-motor development and executive functions were investigated with the Bender Test at age 5½ years in 175 children born preterm and 125 full-term controls, within the longitudinal Stockholm Neonatal Project. Assessment also included WPPSI-R and NEPSY neuropsychological battery for ages 4-7 (Korkman, 1990). Bender protocols were scored according to Brannigan & Decker (2003), Koppitz (1963) and a complementary neuropsychological scoring system (ABC), aimed at executive functions and developed for this study. Bender results by all three scoring systems were strongly related to overall cognitive level (Performance IQ), in both groups. The preterm group displayed inferior visual-motor skills compared to controls also when controlling for IQ. The largest group differences were found on the ABC scoring, which shared unique variance with NEPSY tests of executive function. Multiple regression analyses showed that hyperactive behavior and inattention increased the risk for visual-motor deficits in children born preterm, whereas no added risk was seen among hyperactive term children. Gender differences favoring girls were strongest within the preterm group, presumably reflecting the specific vulnerability of preterm boys. The results indicate that preterm children develop a different neurobehavioral organization from children born at term, and that the Bender test with a neuropsychological scoring is a useful tool in developmental screening around school start.

  16. Simulation and optimization of a new focusing polarizing bender for the diffuse neutrons scattering spectrometer DNS at MLZ

    2017-06-01

    We present the concept and the results of the simulations of a new polarizer for the diffuse neutron scattering spectrometer DNS at MLZ. The concept of the polarizer is based on the idea of a bender made from the stack of the silicon wafers with a double-side supermirror polarizing coating and absorbing spacers in between. Owing to its compact design, such a system provides more free space for the arrangement of other instrument components. To reduce activation of the polarizer in the high intensity neutron beam of the DNS spectrometer we plan to use the Fe/Si supermirrors instead of currently used FeCoV/Ti:N ones. Using the VITESS simulation package we have performed simulations for horizontally focusing polarizing benders with different geometries in the combination with the double-focusing crystal monochromator of DNS. Neutron transmission and polarization efficiency as well as the effects of the focusing for convergent conventional C-benders and S-benders have been analyzed both for wedge-like and plane-parallel convergent geometries of the channels. The results of these simulations and the advantages/disadvantages of the various configurations are discussed.

Lo studio TC e' stato eseguito con tecnica spirale trifasica; i dati acquisiti sono stati successivamente trasferiti su una stazione di lavoro ed analizzati con il software applicativo Multiplanar Reconstruction (MPR) che ha permesso ricostruzioni secondo piani assiale e coronale. Si sono considerati i parametri morfometrici (presenza di calcificazioni parenchimali e/o vascolari, dimensioni del rene nelle sezioni assiale e longitudinale, superficie renale in sezione longitudinale, rapporto cortico-midollare), densitometrici (densita' renale senza mdc, densita' della corticale e della midollare nella fase arteriosa, densita' nella fase tubulonefrografica) e funzionali (omogeneo incremento di densita' in fase tubulonefrografica e presenza della fase escretoria) e confrontato i valori ottenuti nei vari sottogruppi di pazienti diabetici e nel gruppo di controllo. Le dimensioni renali nella sezione assiale sono risultate significativamente inferiori (p<0,05) nei pazienti con durata minore del diabete presentavano reni significativamente piu' grandi nella sezione assiale rispetto agli altri gruppi; tali dimensioni si riducevano significativamente nel gruppo con durata piu' lunga della malattia. La valutazione delle dimensioni renali e soprattutto della riduzione della densita' della corticale renale nella fase arteriosa puo' essere utile come indice di nefropatia nei pazienti diabetici non insulino dipendenti. Ulteriori ricerche sono tuttavia necessarie per raggiungere validi protocolli utilizzabili nella pratica quotidiana.

  3. Mechanisms of deformation and fracture in high temperature low cycle fatigue of Rene 80 and IN 100

    Romanoski, G. R., Jr.

    1982-01-01

    Specimens tested for the AGARD strain range partitioning program were investigated. Rene 80 and IN 100 were tested in air and in vacuum; at 871 C, 925 C, and 1000 C; and in the coated and uncoated condition. The specimens exhibited a multiplicity of high-temperature low-cycle fatigue damage. Observations of the various forms of damage were consistent with material and testing conditions and were generally in agreement with previous studies. In every case observations support a contention that failure occurs at a particular combination of crack length and maximum stress. A failure criterion which is applicable in the regime of testing studied is presented. The predictive capabilities of this criterion are straight forward.

    A special designed experiment was conducted for observing cr ack initiation and growth in P/M Rene95 superalloy under tension-tensi on loading by self-made SEM in-situ fatigue loading stag. Several alum ina inclusion particles exposed at the specimen surface were observed carefully. During fatigue test inclusions led to cracks initiation. Th e cracks can be formed by two mechanisms. Generally, the cracks nuclea ted at the interface between inclusion and matrix. Sometimes, cracks w ere also formed inside the inclusion. As the increase of cycles, some cracks at the interface between inclusion and matrix broadened and pro pagated along the direction about 45€?to the loading axis. On the oth er hand, the cracks inside the inclusion propagated in the inclusion a nd towards matrix.

  5. A phenomenological constitutive equation for Rene 95 PM alloy and its application to isothermal forging process of turbine disk

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2002-01-01

    The flow behavior of Rene 95 PM alloy was studied from 1050 to 1150℃with strain rate of 1€?10, 1€?10, 1€?10 and 1. At a given temperature and strain rate, flow curves exhibit a peak followed by flow softening up to a steady state. Moreover, at constant strain, flow stress increases with increasing strain rate and decreasing temperature. An equation relating hyperbolic sine of flow stress to hot working parameters, such as strain, strain rate and temperature, was established by using multiple nonlinear regression method. A very good agreement was found between predicted and experimental flow stress in all the strain range investigated. Application of the constitutive equation in predicting forming loads and flow behavior and temperature distribution in both upper and lower dies in an isothermal forging process of turbine disk of large dimension (about 630mm) by means of a finite element code was systematically analyzed.

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available This paper presents the application of a stochastic Benders decomposition algorithm for the problem of supply chain investment planning under uncertainty applied to the petroleum byproducts supply chain. The uncertainty considered is related with the unknown demand levels for oil products. For this purpose, a model was developed based on two-stage stochastic programming. It is proposed two different solution methodologies, one based on the classical cutting plane approach presented by Van Slyke & Wets (1969, and other, based on a multi cut extension of it, firstly introduced by Birge & Louveaux (1988. The methods were evaluated on a real sized case study. Preliminary numerical results obtained from computational experiments are encouraging.

  10. The Bender-Gestalt psychopathology scale: failure to infer validity in a school-aged sample.

    Rossini, E D

    1993-06-01

    The concurrent validity of Hutt's (1977) empirical psychopathology scale of the Bender Visual-Motor Gestalt Test was evaluated among three groups of younger school-aged children within the 7-to-10- year age range (M = 109.1): adjustment disordered, conduct disordered, and nonclinical controls (n = 40/group). Excellent interscorer reliability was achieved with approximately 2 hr of self-study of the scoring manual. Although the conduct-disordered group was significantly more immature on Koppitz' Developmental Scoring System, there were no significant differences among groups on the psychopathology scale when visual-motor development was covaried (M = 50.5). This was an unexpected result, given Hutt's initial validation study among school-aged children. The psychopathology scale was not inferred to be valid among adolescents in the only known concurrent validation study. Pending supportive validation research, the psychopathology scale should not be employed in the clinical assessment of younger school-aged children.

    1998-12-01

    The validity of the Koppitz Developmental scoring system in identifying organic impairment among functionally impaired adolescents was challenged in the current study. It was proposed that there are two distinct subtypes of errors in this system: those that are valid indicators of organic impairment (Category A) and those which are not but occur as a function of specific emotional factors (Category B). 46 male adolescents with a primary diagnosis of Conduct Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, or Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder were administered the Bender-Gestalt once using the standard order of administration and once in reverse order. It was hypothesized that more errors would be committed on cards presented later than those presented earlier in sequence for Category B but not Category A errors. Analysis provided partial support for this hypothesis.

    1989-05-01

    Normative data are presented for two Bender-Gestalt scoring systems with a sample of "normal" controls (n = 150), emotionally disturbed (n = 140), and mentally retarded/neurologically impaired (MR/NI) adolescents (n = 47), aged 12 to 17 years. The results failed to support the use of Hutt's (1985) Psychopathology Scale and Adolescent Configuration in differentiating the "normal" and emotionally disturbed groups, but did support their use in differentiating the MR/NI group from the other two. The Hutt scores also were found to be related inversely to age and IQ. By contrast, the Koppitz scores differentiated the three groups from each other and were not related significantly to IQ. The results supported limited use of Koppitz's (1975) Emotional Indicators as a "sign" approach to brief screening for emotional disturbance in adolescents.

    2011-12-01

    Full Text Available Research with new versions of the Bender Gestalt Test (TGB has hardly attracted attention to the researchers of the Hispanic world, onsidering that this test is one of the most widely used psychological assessments. This study evaluates the construct validity of the modified version of TGB for children, elative to sustainedattention assessed by the Caras Test. Both tests were applied to 90 children, aged between 5 and 8, in standardized conditions. The esults indicate that the shared variance between the two measures is zero, even when applied disattenuated correlations for measurement error; also, no non-linear patterns were detected between the two variables. These correlations were consistent in the total sample and among subgroups of children. We discuss these results with respect to the limits of validity of this modified version of TGB in the Spanish language.

    The bender described is a part of the double crystal monochromator for the QUICKEXAFS spectrometer, which is under development for ELETTRA. Technical specification for the bender include the following: constant position of the central point of the crystal during the bending process, the full size of the crystal must be as small as possible in the dynamic bending process, and the bender must be highly vacuum compatible. To satisfy all of these demands we propose a new scheme for a bender of rectangular crystal with four living supports. The bender has two inner wings, which bear two inner crystal supports, and two outer wings, which bear two outer supports. These wings are moved by two cones placed on the same rod. The cones have different profiles. In order to keep the central part of the crystal in a constant position during the bending process these cone profiles are designed and manufactured in a very special way. Measurements of the bender characteristics were made with the help of a test bench. Instead of a Si single crystal we used a bronze plate of the same size, which had very similar elastic constants. The full scattering of the position of the central part of the bronze plate during the bending process is less then 100 μm. The measured profile of the plate bent to about 506 mm was compared with a circle fitted by the least square method. The relative difference between measured and fitted radius appeared to be about 10-5.

    Full Text Available Background: Since psychological tests such as questionnaire or drawing tests are almost qualitative, their results carry a degree of uncertainty and sometimes subjectivity. The deficiency of all drawing tests is that the assessment is carried out after drawing the objects and lots of information such as pen angle, speed, curvature and pressure are missed through the test. In other words, the psychologists cannot assess their patients while running the tests. One of the famous drawing tests to measure the degree of Obsession Compulsion Disorder (OCD is the Bender Gestalt, though its reliability is not promising. Objective: The main objective of this study is to make the Bender Gestalt test quantitative; therefore, an optical pen along with a digital tablet is utilized to preserve the key drawing features of OCD patients during the test. Materials and Methods: Among a large population of patients who referred to a special clinic of OCD, 50 under therapy subjects voluntarily took part in this study. In contrast, 50 subjects with no sign of OCD performed the test as a control group. This test contains 9 shapes and the participants were not constraint to draw the shapes in a certain interval of time; consequently, to classify the stream of feature vectors (samples through drawing Hidden Markov Model (HMM is employed and its flexibility increased by incorporating the fuzzy technique into its learning scheme. Results: Applying fuzzy HMM classifier to the data stream of subjects could classify two groups up to 95.2% accuracy, whereas the results by applying the standard HMM resulted in 94.5%. In addition, multi-layer perceptron (MLP, as a strong static classifier, is applied to the features and resulted in 86.6% accuracy. Conclusion: Applying the pair of T-test to the results implies a significant supremacy of the fuzzy HMM to the standard HMM and MLP classifiers.

    Full Text Available This study is looking for evidences of reliability, for the Qualification Qua- litative System (Brannigan y Brunner, 2002 applied to the Bender Gestalt Test – Modified. The participants were 86 children, divided in two groups: pre- school and school; and three students who scored the designs in both groups. The analysis was done in the final grade and the item. The results pointed to the good levels of results of external reliability and internal consistence in the pre- school group, while these levels were scored in the school group. These differences establish the relation between these two aspects of measurement error and the emphasis in an appropriate training of measurements that require the examiner’s judgments. We discussed our results considering the potential utility of this relative version of the Bender Gestalt Test for the clinical practice and investigation as well.

    2010-06-01

    This paper examines one US psychiatrist's engagement between 1936 and 1952 with a racialist strain of evolutionary thought. When Lauretta Bender began working with Bellevue Hospital's disproportionately black population, the psychiatric literature still circulated the crude evolutionary proposition that blacks remained stuck at a more primitive stage of development. In the 1930s, drawing insights from holistic, mechanistic and environmentalist thinking on the relationship between mind and body, Bender developed her own more circumspect racialist position. Although she largely abandoned her underdetermined version of racialism in the 1940s for an approach that left out race as an active factor of analysis, this paper contends that she probably never wrote off black primitivity as a theoretical possibility.

    This study assesses the test-retest reliability of the revised Advanced Psychodiagnostic Interpretation (API) scoring system for the Bender Gestalt Test (BGT). The API system identifies 207 possible distortions in a BGT protocol. Test-retest reliability for 40 schizophrenic patients tested twice with a mean interval of 6.4 years (SD=3.8 years) was good, ranging from .71 to .80. Further reliability and validity studies are needed to further demonstrate the effectiveness of the system.

    When silicon single crystal mirrors are bent to cylindrical figures of typically 6 km bending radius, the moments needed are very small and easy to disturb by cooling attachments to the sides of the mirror. Hence, we decided to abandon the conventional concept of cooling plates attached to the sides of the mirrors and instead have chosen to use internal water channels. We present here the design of mirrors with cooling channels near the neutral axis of the silicon beam that have a rather thick {open_quote}{open_quote}hot wall.{close_quote}{close_quote} The results of this analytical work are nonintuitive, regarding the stresses produced by wiggler heating. The design path chosen minimizes figure errors due to coolant pressure variations and residual stresses from machining and bonding of multiple layers of silicon. The geometry of the water channels avoids water-to-vacuum seals and uses the mirror bender as the coolant manifold. Engineering efforts, which reduce the bending stresses at bender-to-silicon interface by a factor of five, will be presented. The complete mirror bender and motion control mechanics will be shown. {copyright} {ital 1996 American Institute of Physics.}

  8. Correlation of liquefaction resistance with shear wave velocity based on laboratory study using bender element

    2005-01-01

    Recent studies using field case history data yielded new criteria for evaluating liquefaction potential in saturated granular deposits based on in situ, stress-corrected shear wave velocity. However, the conditions of relatively insufficient case histories and limited site conditions in this approach call for additional data to more reliably define liquefaction resistance as a function of shear wave velocity. In this study, a series of undrained cyclic triaxial tests were conducted on saturated sand with shear wave velocity Vs measured by bender element. By normalizing the data with respect to minimum void ratio, the test results, incorporated with previously published laboratory data, statistically revealed good correlation of cyclic shear strength with small-strain shear modulus for sandy soils, which is almost irrespective of soil types and confining pressures. The consequently determined cyclic resistance ratio, CRR, was found to be approximately proportional to Vs4. Liquefaction resistance boundary curves were established by applying this relationship and compared to liquefaction criteria derived from seismic field measurements. Although in the range of Vs1>200 m/s the presented curves are moderately conservative, they are remarkably consistent with the published field performance criteria on the whole.

    Administered the Bender-Gestalt (BG) and Minnesota Percepto-Diagnostic Test (MPD) to 69 first-grade children prior to administration of the California Achievement Test (CAT). Order of administration for the BG and MPD was counterbalanced to control for practice effects. Correlations (rs) were computed between the 9 CAT subtests and scores from the BG and MPD. The DD score from the MPD correlated significantly with all 9 CAT subtests. The SpCD score from the MPD correlated significantly with 6 of the 9 CAT subtests. The BG Koppitz score correlated significantly with 6 of the 9 CAT subtests. Both the DD and SpCD scores showed a significantly higher negative r with Reading Vocabulary, Total Reading, and Arithmetic Computation than the BG. Furthermore, both types of MPD scores showed a much higher average r with the 9 CAT subtests than was evident for the BG. These findings suggest that DD and SpCD scores from the MPD provide a more sensitive measure of deficits in visual-motor perception than the Koppitz score from the BG.

    Full Text Available Purpose. Based on the understanding of The New Time philosophy as a response to the challenges of the era in relation to the construction of an objective picture of the world and the self-creation of man, to analyze the main options for evaluating the ambivalence of the basic intention of the philosophy of Descartes in the research literature and to clarify the nature of ambiguity. To justify the dominant nature of anthropological intention in the text of the «Rules for Guiding the Mind in Searching for the Truth». Novelty. The nature of the ambivalence of the basic intention of the text of the "Rules" is clarified as a form of two basic existences, opposite to the New Time, namely the query on the objectivity of scientific knowledge and inquiry in anthropology as a cornerstone of philosophy. The author of the article proves the domination of anthropological component of the text «The Rules» in front of scientific knowledge. Conclusions. The main manifestations of ambivalence of basic directivity of philosophizing of Rene Descartes to construction of an objective picture of the world and self-creation of person were described. The determining influence on the process of the establishment of basic intention of the specificity of the experience of mathematical knowledge and Plato’s and Aristotle’s tradition of philosophizing for the first, and of personal tradition of Christianity in the second place was emphasized. In the reference to the text «The Rules» of Descartes the ambiguity of the basic direction was argued, the nature and domination of the anthropological intention were justified.

    We propose a new scheme for a crystal bender. This scheme provides the constant position of the central point of a rectangular crystal during the bending process. The measurements show that the full scatter of the position of the central part of a sample during the bending process is slightly less than 100 microns. The measured profile of a sample bent to a radius of about 50 cm was compared with a circle fitted by the least square method. The relative difference between measured and fitted radii appeared to be about 10 sup - sup 5.

    The effects of microstructure, temperature, plastic strain range, and hold time on the low-cycle fatigue (LCF) life were studied for Rene 95, an important Ni base superalloy used in jet engine disks. It was shown that the life could be varied by approximately an order of magnitude at elevated temperatures by simple heat treatments. The life was largest for the microstructure that promoted the most homogeneous deformation mode. The results are explained using the concept of a synergistic interaction between the deformation mode and boundary oxidation.

  20. Scenario-based modeling for multiple allocation hub location problem under disruption risk: multiple cuts Benders decomposition approach

    Science.gov (United States)

    Yahyaei, Mohsen; Bashiri, Mahdi

    2017-03-01

    The hub location problem arises in a variety of domains such as transportation and telecommunication systems. In many real-world situations, hub facilities are subject to disruption. This paper deals with the multiple allocation hub location problem in the presence of facilities failure. To model the problem, a two-stage stochastic formulation is developed. In the proposed model, the number of scenarios grows exponentially with the number of facilities. To alleviate this issue, two approaches are applied simultaneously. The first approach is to apply sample average approximation to approximate the two stochastic problem via sampling. Then, by applying the multiple cuts Benders decomposition approach, computational performance is enhanced. Numerical studies show the effective performance of the SAA in terms of optimality gap for small problem instances with numerous scenarios. Moreover, performance of multi-cut Benders decomposition is assessed through comparison with the classic version and the computational results reveal the superiority of the multi-cut approach regarding the computational time and number of iterations.

    To investigate the short-term visual memory ability of children and adolescents with severe psychiatric disorders, 82 child and adolescent inpatients and day hospital patients in a state psychiatric hospital were administered the Bender Gestalt Test as part of a psychological assessment and then asked to reproduce the designs from memory. No significant differences were found between groups on either the Bender Gestalt Recall, or the WISC-III IQs and the Digit Span and Symbol Search subtests for Psychotic Disorders (Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective Disorder, Psychosis Not Otherwise Specified), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Mood Disorders or Mood Disorders with co-morbid Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. The Coding subtest scores of the Psychotic Disorders group were significantly lower than the ADHD group. Analyses showed that the Bender Gestalt Recall was significantly related to age. Performance IQ, and sex. The results were discussed in terms of both the poor cognitive functioning of children and adolescents with persistent, severe mental illness, and the importance of developmental level when using the Bender Gestalt Recall as a rough measure of short-term visual memory.

Results show that the solidified microstructures of LRF Rene 80 high-temperature alloy consist of directionally solidified dendrites, which are parallel with the deposition direction. The MC type carbides and γ — γ' eutectic distribute in interdendritic region of the directionally solidified microstructure due to element segregation. The LRF Rene 80 high-temperature alloy thick-wall part contains many macro cracks, which have the length of more than 10 mm and expand along the direction parallel to the deposition direction. Analyses indicate that these macro cracks are liquated cracks. During LRF process, the γ—γ' eutectic with lower melting point particularly along the grain-boundary regions in heat-affected zone (HAZ) melt produced by laser melting pool and result in the formation of grain-boundary liquid. On the subsequent cooling process of the HAZ, the liquated cracks along the HAZ grain boundaries occurred by decohesion across the liquid-solid interface due to

    Full Text Available This paper presents a comprehensive framework model of a distribution company with security and reliability considerations. A probabilistic wind farm, which is a renewable energy resource, is modeled in this work. The requirement energy of distribution company can be either provided by distribution company's own distributed generations or purchased from power market. Two reliability indices as well as DC load flow equations are also considered in order to satisfy reliability and security constraints, respectively. Since allocating proper spinning reserve improves reliability level, the amount of spinning reserve will be calculated iteratively. In this work, all equations are expressed in a linear fashion in which unit commitment formulation depends on binary variables associated with only on/off of units. The benders decomposition method is used to solve security-based unit commitment.

    In the first chapter the deduction of the Benders cuts are presented, departing from the properties of duality. Also the properties of the Benders cuts are presented, as well as the initial algorithm of Benders to solve any problem of lineal integer-mixed programming are presented. In the second chapter, of the planning of the expansion of means of generation and transmission in an electric power system is presented and the different structures of the mathematical programming it gives rise to and how the method of Benders can be adapted to these. In the third chapter the theoretical contributions of this work are presented: a) How to initialize the master problem to take advantage of the acquired experience after having solved a similar problem, so that it can be solved more efficiently, the succession of integer-mixed problems of linear programming that arise when solving the problem of the planning of the expansion of generation and transmission means in an electric power system. b) How to generate a master problem whose continuous optimal solution corresponds to the optimal continuous one of the integer-mixed problem, so that the search of integer solutions is made in the vicinity of the optimum continuous. c) How to generate an integer solution, close to the optimum continuous of the integer-mixed problem, that has high probability of being feasible, and that is perhaps the optimal integer solution, in a smaller time than that required to solve it in exact form. In addition, other ideas are presented that can be incorporated to the Benders method. In order to show the effectiveness of the proposed ideas, in chapter 4 the results obtained when solving several problems are presented using: 1. The updated Benders method, 2. The branch and bound method, 3. The update of Benders when adding restrictions and 4. The update of Benders when considered as integer each time to more variables. Finally a summary is made of the achievements, of the conclusions obtained and

    2000-06-01

    Performance of 66 children, 30 with and 36 without learning disabilities, in four ways using the Bender Visual-motor Gestalt Test was compared. First, the test with the standard Koppitz scoring procedure, second with the Canter Background Interference Procedure sheet using the standard Koppitz scoring procedure; third, the Bender test on a standard sheet of paper using Canter scoring procedure; and fourth, the Canter Background Interference Procedure (BIP) sheet using the Canter scoring procedure. The effectiveness of the Canter procedure was examined when scored with an age-appropriate normative scoring system. This was accomplished by combining the Canter BIP interference sheet with the Koppitz scoring system. The children ranged in age from 6 to 10 years. Using discriminant analysis, all four methods correctly categorized statistically significant percentages of both types of students but there was a significant difference on the Canter BIP sheet using the Canter scoring procedure. This procedure classified students with the least absolute number and percentage of either false negatives or false positives when compared with the other three methods, suggesting that using this scoring method with the Bender Gestalt may be better for identifying younger children with learning disabilities.

    In addition to dental hospital clinical activity, dental students at Paris Rene Descartes University have the opportunity in their final year of study to practise clinically in a dental office, as associates. This paper outlines a pilot, experimental study designed to assess student reaction to this Vocational Clinical Activity (VCA) in order to identify relevant weaknesses of the undergraduate programme. Using questionnaires, data were collected for each of the following clinical or management skills: clinical difficulty, therapeutic decision-making, patient/practitioner relationship, time management, administrative matters and technical problems. Students were asked to rank each item in order of difficulty (1, high level to 6, low level). A high response rate was observed (90%) among the 50 undergraduate VCA students. The results pointed out three main difficulties encountered by undergraduate students during the VCA: time management (90% of the students), administrative matters (85% of the students) and clinical decision-making (80% of the students). These preliminary results need further investigation. However, they give us the incentive to carry on with this type of assessment and to extend it to young, qualified colleagues' perceptions and to other French Universities.

    When security-constrained unit commitment (SCUC) was directly solved by mixed integer programming algorithm, the calculation efficiency would considerably decrease, and when SCUC was solved by Benders algorithm, it led to the problem that the solution efficiency would decrease due to the algorithm shock and the restriction of system scale. A new Benders algorithm-based method to solve SCUC was proposed. Based on Benders algorithm, by means of adding the link to correct the constraint of out-of-limit after the iteration of Benders master problem, the search direction of Benders cut could be controlled; by means of adding the link to identify taken-effect constraints the search space of Benders algorithm was reduced, thus the solution efficiency of SCUC optimization could be improved. The effectiveness of the proposed method was verified by simulation results of 6-machine 3-bus system and 54-machine 118-bus system.%针对采用混合整数规划算法直接求解安全约束机组组合,将使计算效率大幅度降低,而利用奔德斯算法求解则存在着算法振荡和受系统规模制约求解效率下降的问题,提出了一种基于奔德斯算法的安全约束机组组合新方法.该方法在奔德斯算法的基础上,通过纳入新增越限约束校正环节,控制了奔德斯割的寻优方向,通过增加起作用约束识别环节,缩小了奔德斯算法的寻优空间,进而提高了安全约束机组组合优化问题的求解效率.6机3节点和54机118节点算例验证了所提方法的有效性.

    computed tomography and the Bender Gestalt Test are some of the tests used routinely for the assessment of alleged offenders referred under Sections 77 and 78 of the Criminal Procedure Act 51 of 1977. An exploratory retrospective study was conducted at the Free State Psychiatric Complex. The aim of this study was to identify the extent to which the Bender Gestalt Test results and the computed tomography scans are associated with outcomes in the assessment of competency to stand trial and criminal responsibility in individuals referred to the Free State Psychiatric Complex (FSPC) observation unit. This was a cross-sectional study and the entire population of patients admitted in 2013 was included in the study. The clinical and demographic data were obtained from patient files. The majority of participants were black, males, single and unemployed. The most common diagnosis was schizophrenia. The current study showed no statistically significant association between the Bender Gestalt Test Hain's scores and the outcome of criminal responsibility and competency to stand trial. Similarly, the study also showed no statistically significant association between the presence of a brain lesion and the outcome of criminal responsibility and competency to stand trial. It was also concluded that as CT scans are expensive, patients should be referred for that service only when there is a clear clinical indication to do so. Copyright © 2016 Elsevier Ltd.

    Purpose: Aim of the presents study was to evaluate the repeatability and reproducibility of the Doppler Resistive Index (R.I.) and the Ultrasound renal volume measurement in renal transplants. Materials and methods: Twenty -six consecutive patients (18 men, 8 women) mean age of 42,8{+-}12,4 years (M{+-}SD)(range 22-65 years) were studied twice by each of two trained sonographers using a color Doppler ultrasound scanner. Twelve of them had a normal allograft function (defined as stable serum creatinine levels {<=}123,76 {mu}mol/L), whilst the remaining 14 had decreased allograft function (serum creatinine 132.6-265.2 {mu}mol/L). Results were given as mean of 6 measurements performed at upper, middle and lower pole of the kidney. Intra- and interobserver variability was assessed by the repeatability coefficient and coefficient of variation (CV). Results: Regarding Resistive Index measurement, repeatability coefficient was between 0.04 and 0.06 and the coefficient of variation was <5%. The analysis of the Student's test did not show any significant difference between the measurements (t=0.15; p=0.87 n.s.). A good reproducibility was also detected in US measurements of renal length and volume. Conclusions: These results suggest that Color Doppler Resistive Index measurements of renal allograft and Ultrasound renal volume measurements are repeatable and reproducible.

    在通信和交通系统中,考虑到信息和商品OD流通提出了无容量限制多分配枢纽选址问题(UMAHLP).与在起点和终点建立点对点式直达方式运营不同,OD流经过枢纽节点中转的方式到达,通常称这种OD流以枢纽之间的连接作为中转的网络系统为枢纽辐射式航线网络.因此,求解该问题主要的工作是选择合理的枢纽,确定节点之间的连接方式,即每个OD对的产生的需求量,以达到网络的运营成本最小.文中主要提出一种改进的Benders分解算法求解无容量限制的多分配枢纽选址问题,在GMS软件平台上对问题进行求解,并且运用LINGO优化软件交互式求解方式中的分支定界算法得出问题精确解,说明Benders分解算法求解结果的合理性.%In telecommunication and transportation systems, the uncapacitated mulitiple allocation hub location problem ( UMAHLP) arises when the commodities or information between several origin-destination pairs circulates. Instead of establishing a direct node to node connection from an origin to its destination,the (lows are concentrated with others at facilities called hubs. These flows are transported on links established between hubs,being then splitted and delivered to its final destination. Systems with this sort of topology are named hub-and-spoke( HS) systems or hub-and-spoke networks. In this paper, an improved Benders decomposition algorithm is no more limited capacity allocation hub location problem,in the CMS software platform for problem solving, and interactive use of LINGO optimization software solution in the way the issue of branch and bound algorithm derived exact solution,indicating the Benders decomposition algorithm results is reasonable.

    Full Text Available Det har i de senere år skjedd store forandringer på folketrygdens område. Det har blitt lagt mer og mer vekt på viktigheten av å kunne være i aktivitet hvis det ikke er medisinske hindringer for dette. I endringene som er foretatt, er det fokus på den enkeltes muligheter til å være i arbeid mer enn på eventuelle begrensninger. Dette kommer fram gjennom endringer på sykefraværsområdet med innføring av aktivitetsplikt for den sykmeldte og gjennom ny sykefraværsmodell med fokus på oppfølging, involvering av arbeidsgiver, behandler og NAV. Arbeidsplassen er hovedarena for sykefraværsoppfølging, og arbeidsgiver og arbeidstaker er hovedaktører. Dette er en videreføring av føringene i Intensjonsavtalen om et inkluderende arbeidsliv. Også på området for rehabiliteringspenger, yrkesrettet attføring og uføreytelser legges det vekt på at den enkelte skal forsøke seg i arbeid hvis det medisinsk sett er mulig. I 2010 skjer det en større endring ved at rehabiliteringspenger, yrkesrettet attføring og tidsbegrenset uførestønad fjernes og erstattes med arbeidsavklaringspenger, en ytelse hvor det også legges vekt på aktivitet. Samtidig innføres arbeidsevnevurdering med full tyngde som arbeidsmetode internt i NAV. På yrkesskadeområdet har det skjedd få endringer, men organiseringen av yrkesskadeordningen i Norge er under utredning. Samhandling med og kompetansetilbud til sykmeldere er gjennomført i de siste årene. Det er også utviklet statistikk over sykmeldinger skrevet ut av fastleger, et verktøy som kan benyttes i dialog med den enkelte fastlege. Fortsatt er mange sykmeldt eller på varige ytelser.

    This study examined the use of the Bender Visual-Motor Gestalt Test-Second Edition (BGT-II) with children diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Previous research has examined the relationship of ADHD and visual-motor functioning based on overall developmental scores or specific emotional indicators. Although several studies have examined the relationship of the previous edition of the BGT-II and ADHD symptoms, psychometric issues associated with the original edition limit the validity of the results. The current study examined the utility of the BGT-II in the assessment of behaviors associated with ADHD. A group of 62 subjects diagnosed with ADHD (M=11 yr., 5 mo.; 45 male, 17 female) was compared to a control group of 62 subjects randomly selected from the BGT-II standardization data (M=11 yr., 6 mo; 33 male, 29 female). Several hypotheses were made regarding how areas of deficit, e.g., self-regulation, planning, working memory, and motor control, were expected to manifest in BGT-II performance. With IQ controlled, subjects with ADHD performed more poorly on the BGT-II than subjects with no known disorders; however, the effect size was small (eta(p)=.07). Emotional indicators intended to assess symptoms of ADHD did not demonstrate diagnostic utility.

    Full Text Available The Bender Gestalt Test (BGT has a long history in psychological assessment and several scoring systems have been developed for it. One of them is the Brannigan and Brunner’s Qualitative Scoring System (QSS, developed for the modified version of this test that uses six of the nine original designs (BGT Modified. However, there is limited psychometric evidence for the Spanish speaking population about the usefulness of this measure in an academic screening battery. The purpose of this study is to report evidence of incremental validity of this abbreviated version regarding school achievement, within a group of 101 five year olds entering the first grade of primary education. We applied a hierarchical multiple regression controlling for the effects of fluid intelligence and pre-academic skills, compared to the criteria of school grades. We found that the inclusion of BGT Modified brings significant unique variance in school grades, and is a more powerful predictor than intelligence. Our results support the use of BGT Modified in a brief battery of screening in identifying children at risk for poor school performance

    针对电力系统调度、规划、检修及风险评估中反复涉及的校正控制安全约束最优潮流的求解问题,在深入机制分析基础上,提出一种基于奔德斯(Benders)分解与协调的模型和算法,使复杂大电网的求解得以进行.该模型和算法的主要贡献体现在:对正常状态下的最优潮流问题(也称主问题),基于电网关键元件规律特性的变动形成有效约束,以提高其求解效率;对预想事件(也称子问题)集,基于处于主导地位预想事件概念的有效筛选方法,使子问题数显著减少.由此,借用奔德斯分解的处理思想,实现主问题与子问题间的协调机制.最后以IEEE 30节点标准系统以及山东电网445节点实际系统作为算例,对该算法进行可行性、有效性等验证.%To solve the corrective security-constrained optimal power flow problem which is repeatedly involved in power system operation and economic dispatch, a practical approach based on Benders decomposition was proposed.So that the solution of complex and large power systems can be carried out.The approach is mainly reflected in: aiming at the optimal power flow problem under pre-contingency (also known as the Benders master problem), creates effective restraints based on the change characteristics of the key components of power system in order to improve the efficiency of its solution; for the post contingency (also called sub-problem) set, uses a contingency filtering method which can select the dominat contingencies, to reduce the number of sub-problems.As a result,using Benders decomposition algorithm realizes the coordination mechanism between the master problem and the sub-problems.In the end, the IEEE 30-bus system and the Shandong power grid 445-bus system demonstrates the feasibility and practicality of the proposed approach.

    新一代声波测井技术采用了相控圆弧阵作为声波辐射器,构成圆弧阵的压电振子的耐高温性能一致性是一项重要的技术指标.以相控圆弧阵所使用的阵元为例实验研究了压电振子的耐高温性能以及阻抗特性一致性随温度的变化.测试结果表明,压电振子的谐振频率和静态电容随着温度的升高而增大,而最大电导和脉冲响应幅度随着温度的升高而降低;压电振子的阻抗特性一致性随着温度的升高相对下降,150℃下相对变化量可控制在4%以内.将压电振子从高温环境冷却至常温27℃后,压电振子的阻抗特性具有可恢复性.经测试的压电振子的耐温指标能够达到150℃左右,且高温下阻抗特性一致性较好,能够满足井下高温环境的应用要求.%Since the acoustic phased arc array transmitter is used in the latest generation acoustic logging, the temperature-resistant consistency of benders which are employed to form arc array transmitter has become a key technical index. High temperature resistance and impedance characteristics consistency of benders, which vary with temperature, are investigated by experiments. Experimental results show that, as the temperature rises, the resonance frequency and shunt capacitance increase, but the maximum conductance and impulse response magnitude decrease. The relative variation is not greater than 4% in 150 ℃ although impedance characteristics consistency decrease slightly. With the temperature reducing to 27℃, impedance characteristics of benders are restorable. Finally, it is considered that the temperature index of benders tested can reach around 150 ℃, and they maintain relative good impedance characteristics consistency in high temperature, which fully satisfies application demands of downhole high temperature environment.

    Probabilistic dynamic dispatch (PDD) can coordinate power system operating economy and reliability, and is thus superior to the traditional deterministic dynamic dispatch. However, the large scales and difficulties in calculation associated are the main obstacles for PDD's engineering applications. A novel solution method based on Benders decomposition is proposed to solve the large scale linear problem of PDD. According to the coupling between operating states, the proposed method decomposes the original PDD problem into a dynamic economic dispatch master problem (MP) at the normal operating states and a number of post-contingency adjustment sub-problems (SPs) at contingency states based on the Benders decomposition techniques. The solution of the original problem can be realized by the iteration of MP and SPs, and each optimization solution scale is effectively reduced. Moreover, a SP pre-selection technique by checking the adaptability of MP results is also deduced in the context to reduce the number of SPs needed in each iteration. The proposed method can increase the calculation speed and solve relatively large scale power system PDD problems. Case studies on a power grid show the validity and efficiency of the proposed method.%概率动态调度能够协调系统运行的经济性与可靠性,相较于传统确定性方法具有先进性.然而,模型规模庞大、求解困难是该类方法所面临的主要问题.提出了一种基于Bentlers分解的新算法对概率动态调度的大型线性规划问题进行求解.该算法针对各种运行状态之间的耦合关系,依据分解协调的思想,采用Benders分解技术将原问题分解,形成由正常运行状态下动态经济调度主问题与事故运行状态下运行状态调整子问题构成的迭代求解格式,降低了每次优化计算的求解规模;每次迭代过程中,通过对动态调度解的适应性检验,预先筛除无需调整的事故子问题,明显减少

The car deployment among rental locations is formulated as a time-space network. With this formulation, constraints for this scheduling problem are obtained according to the supply policy and flow balance at each node. After analyzing the characteristics of the model, the problem was decomposed into two sub-problems by using Benders decomposition, and a solution algorithm is proposed. A numerical example with a one-week scheduling horizon is given to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method. Results show that it works well.

Nowadays, the most common treatment being used to slow down disease progression, include Donepezil , Rivastigmine and Galantamine, which all of them act as inhibitors of acetyl cholinesterase. General purpose of our study was to show effects of treatment with Donepezil and Rivastigmine, as two drugs that commonly used for treatment of AD in Iran and to compare these effects between two drugs. Samples selected from patients who had Alzheimer` disease with DSM IV criteria and were candidate of receiving Donepezil or Rivastigmine, as treatment of AD, for the first time. We used four neuropsychological tests including MMSE, NPI, Clock and Bender to assess patient's cognitive and behavioral changes during treatment with two drugs. Patients divided to two groups (each group 35 cases; Patients with plan of taking Donepezil entered into one of the groups and patients with plan of taking Rivastigmine entered into another. The four tests were completed once before starting treatment and then, 1 month, 3 months and 6 months after treatment with Donepezil and Rivastigmine. MMSE, 6 months after treatment with Donepezil, improved from 20.63 before treatment to 21.83, which is statistically significant (P = 0.04. Also, MMSE, 6 months after treatment with Rivastigmine, improved from 20.03 before treatment to 22.71, which was statistically significant (P = 0.007. About Clock test, there was a significant improvement from 5.74 before treatment to 6.4 after 6 months of treatment with Rivastigmine; while this significant improvement was not seen in patients receiving Donepezil. In two other tests, no significant differences were seen before and after treatment. Also, No significant difference was detected between two groups and so no different effects on these tests between Donepezil and Rivastigmine in 6 months period of treatment.

    In this paper it is presented the role power Doppler US with a high-frequency and high-resolution of interlobular arterioles in patients with normally functioning renal transplants or with chronic rejection. 15 patients (mean age 15 years; range 10-18 years) were examined with a General Electric 500 MD unit using 7.5 and 13 MHz linear transducers. In all the patients serum creatinine and diuresis were evaluated; 4 patients underwent US-guided biopsy that resulted in the diagnosis of chronic rejection. Normally functioning renal transplants were found in 11 patients and chronic rejection was seen in 4. In normally functioning renal transplants, interlobular vessels could be depicted as cortical blush with the 7.5 MHz transducer; in the same patients power Doppler US with the 13 MHz transducer permitted a correct evaluation of interlobular vessels that were arranged in series like a palisade. In chronic rejection power Doppler US with the 13 MHz transducer better depicted cortical vascularity and showed irregular, narrow arteries. Power Doppler US with a 13 MHz transducer is particularly useful in children after renal transplants due to their reduced tissutal thickness. The lateral resolution of 13 MHz transducers (<0.3 mm) allows to separate interlobular vessels from each other and the high frequency of the probe can depict interlobular vessels in the peripheral cortex.

    In the distributed heat and power system,customers need to optimally select the generator composition and the dispatch plan that can reduce the introducing cost and carbon-dioxide emissions.So in the programming stage,they should also consider the heat and power load in the area and the candidate of generator,while considering the operation situation.A subtle mathematical programming model with the target of minimizing the system cost is proposed,with an overview of the initial investment of combined heat and power generator and its combined benefits when in the simulative operation mode.In the planning model,there exist a lot of integer variables and the fact that the model itself is nonlinear.The generalized Benders decomposition method is used for its solution.The results of an example program and simulation analysis show that the proposed method can more accurately calculate the type and number of combined heat and power generators,and the system can yield better economic benefits.%在分布式热电联供系统中,用户需要优化选择机组组合和系统运行方案,这样可以使得生产成本最小,减少二氧化碳的排放。为此,分布式热电联供机组的规划需要综合考虑热负荷、电负荷和可选的机组方案,以及系统未来的运行情况。在综合考虑了热电联供机组的初始投资及其模拟运行时组合效益的基础上,建立了以系统等年值费用最小为目标的精细化数学规划模型。在规划模型中,存在大量的整数变量,同时模型本身是非线性的,应用广义 Benders 分解方法对该模型进行了求解。通过算例的规划与仿真分析,表明所述方法可以更加准确地规划出热电机组的类型及台数,系统能够取得更佳的经济效益。

    Professor Huang Li conducted an interview with Professor Mark Bender of Ohio Uni-versity in 2013.Their discussion focuses on the translation and propagation of the ethnic literature of Southwest China in the English -speaking world. In the United States , the popular literary works by Chinese ethnic authors mainly are poems and fiction.The fiction illustrates many cultural el-ements of the ethnic minorities .The poems are u-sually very short and are easily memorized .Nowa-days Mark and his research group focus on the po-ets of Southwest China because the poets are very active, and they have created many world famous poems which enables readers to have a good sense of the poetic tradition in Southwest China . Mark has translated some poems of the Yi People, especially the poems of Akuwuwu , a poet who writes in both the Yi language and Chinese . Mark tells us many things about his translations of Yi poems.He has been translating Akuwuwu be-cause he is one of the few Yi poets who can write in the Yi language , and through his poems readers can learn a lot about the culture of the Yi . It is hard work to translate poems written in the Yi lan-guages , because few American scholars understand the language.So, they have brought a group of scholars to do the translations together , Ameri-cans, Han and Yi.In order to do better transla-tions, every year, Mark and his students go to Li-angshan to conduct interviews with some Yi peo-ple.They even attend the religious ceremonies of the Yi.In this way, they can understand Yi tradi-tions and the connotations in Akuwuwu's poems. Mark thinks it is necessary for translators to under-stand the essences of the poems as well as the cul-ture expressed in the poems .Mark emphasizes that he takes it as “hard fun” because he likes the cul-tural elements in Akuwuwu's poems, elements such as Yi religious ceremonies , costume and even the Yi words, which are the basis for good translation . When translating poems , it is very difficult

The study indicates that the start-to-start method is more reliable to identify the time of shear wave propagation in specimens compared to other methods. In BE tests, the excitation frequency of input waves has influence on the tested Gmax, and this influence is dependent on soil types and reduced by increasing confining pressure. A comparison between RC and BE tests shows that Gmax by both methods may be well expressed as a linear equation; for the Berlin sand and Braunschweig coarse sand, there exists a threshold Gmax below which Gmax by BE tests (Gmax (BE)) is greater than that by RC tests (Gmax (RC)), however beyond which the Gmax (BE) is smaller than Gmax (RC) and the distance between both increases with increasing stiffness soil. In practice, it is suggested that the input voltage with proper high

    Security-constrained economic dispatch is the key issue for achieving secure, economic and efficient operation of AC/DC interconnection system. To this end, a novel iterative SCED mode was proposed to coordinate the problem both in time and space dimension in this paper. A SCED model for AC/DC interconnection system was established taking AC power flow equations, DC transmission system static operation functions, and time interval coupled constrains into consideration. To solve this large scale non-linear programming model, an efficient iterative algorithm was proposed based on Benders decomposition method. Case study was conducted to validate the effectiveness of the proposed mode, model and method in four aspects, including security performance, economic benefit, convergence progress and computational efficiency.%安全约束经济调度是实现交直流互联大电网安全、经济、高效运行的关键环节。针对交直流互联电网的日内滚动经济调度问题,文中提出了时空协调、主子迭代的安全约束经济调度模式;通过精细化考虑交流潮流、直流输电系统稳态运行以及经济调度多时段耦合等约束条件,建立了交直流互联电网安全约束经济调度模型;为求解此大规模非线性规划模型,文中基于Benders分解法提出了主、子问题迭代的高效求解方法。算例从安全性、经济效益、算法收敛性和计算效率四个方面验证了所提模式、模型、求解方法的有效性。

    Full Text Available René Girard is an anthropologist, who has proposed an original hypothesis about the scapegoat mechanism and the relation between violence and religion. Starting from it he intends to work out a criticism of modernity, seeking out to recuperate the role of Christianity in the culture. From this perspective, he approaches the work of F. Nietzsche showing the two faces he finds out in the thinker: his intuition about the hidden truth of violence; and his rejection of this truth, to return to the violent origins of culture.

    The aim of the project is to study different techniques to recover water to the process and to reduce emission of ammonia to water and air. Membrane technology (ultra- (UF) and nanofiltration (NF) and reverse osmosis (RO)) and a stripper have been studied for ammonia separation. The use of bio-fuel in energy production is increasing. The off-gases are often condensed to increase energy yield and to decrease emissions to air. Since the concentration of nitrogen (ammonium) is high in condensates from units with SNCR for NO{sub x}-reduction (selective non-catalytic reduction) this water has to be treated further. Another aim of the project is to replace a great part of the tap water used in the process. This can be accomplished with membrane technology. Laboratory tests revealed a certain degree of membrane fouling. However, both NF and RO worked well in the full-scale unit, in spite of problems in the condensate treatment that resulted in tar products in the water. There was no obvious negative effect on these membranes. Analyses of PAH have shown a low base concentration that may lead to fouling after a long time. UF removes most of these PAH and thus protects the following NF- or RO-membranes. NF gave about 3 times higher filtration capacity (flux) than RO for the condensate at 30 bars. This can save a lot of money, since the membrane area can be reduced to a third. High temperature also increases the flux. The results are of high interest but ought to be certified during long run tests. Fouling was low in both NF and RO, and initial flux was retained after cleaning. The reason is probably the good pre-treatment (UF). The concentration could proceed very far, which make it possibly to reuse the concentrate to the system. Simulations of an ammonia stripper showed some parameters to be critical in certain ranges, while others didn't affect the result. Airflow is a critical parameter during stable conditions within the design data. Simulated data were verified with real data, and this showed that the model was acceptable. The stripper is always more effective at higher temperature. Introduction of systems like this are often very positive, since economy and environment are both improved. The design of this kind of system is very case specific. The pay-off time was calculated to quite reasonable less than 4 years for a case described in the report. In some cases water recovery is not important. Just an ammonia stripper is then needed, which means a relatively low cost compared to the possible benefit in NO{sub x}-reduction.

    利用弯曲元、共振柱和循环扭剪试验联合测定了不同围压和密实度条件下干砂的小应变剪切模量,研究了弯曲元试验中输出信号的特性和各种信号分析方法确定剪切波传播时间的可靠性,并对比了不同试验的结果。研究结果表明,在共振柱试验时,需要考虑系统刚度对试验结果的影响,特别当试样刚度较大时。弯曲元输出信号中最先到达的是近场效应,其初始极化方向跟剪切波相反。近场效应随着输入频率的增加有一定程度的减小,但不会消失。实际试验中建议输入频率不断增加,直至输出信号比较稳定。值得注意的是,剪切初达波的振幅可能远小于后续振动,因此容易造成初达波的误判。时域初达波法能比较可靠准确地确定剪切波的传播时间,波峰法、交互相关法和交互功率法结果均随输入频率有较大波动,不能可靠地确定剪切波的传播时间。对比试验表明,弯曲元、共振柱和循环扭剪试验确定小应变剪切模量对细砂和粗砂均吻合良好,初步表明砂土粒径对不同试验方法结果的一致性没有影响。%Bender element (BE), resonant column (RC) and cyclic torsional shear (TS) tests are performed to measure the small strain shear modulus of dry sands. Thecharacteristics of the received signals in BE tests are investigated, and different interpretation methods are used to determine the travel time of shear waves.The results indicate that it is important to account for the compliance of the testing system in RC tests, especially when the specimen is stiff. In BE tests, the near fieldcomponent arrives first and its initial polarization is opposite to that of the input signal. The near flied decreases as the input frequency increases, but it always exists. Inpractice, it isrecommended that the input frequency should increase continuously until the output signal becomes stable. Note that

    Measurements of small-strain stiffness are widely used for predicting ground movements in many developed countries such as the UK. Although an increasing number of foundations, excavations and tunnels are constructed in Shanghai, the measurements of the small-strain shear modulus of Shanghai soft clay have rarely been reported. In this study, the degree of inherent stiffness anisotropy of intact Shanghai soft clay is investigated using a triaxial apparatus equipped with Hall-effect local strain transducers and a bender element testing system. Two series of tests are carried out on intact prismatic soil specimens under an isotropic stress state. The experimental results reveal that the cross-correlation method using two received signals gives rise to more objective and repeatable results than the conventional first-arrival-time and peak-to-peak methods. The intact Shanghai soft clay clearly exhibits inherent stiffness anisotropy, as demonstrated by its elastic shear modulus ratio (Go(hh)/Go(hv) of about 1.21, due to the strongerlayered structure in the horizontal plane and a bonding effect. A unique relationship is found and established between the normalized shear modulus and the stress state in each plane by incorporating a void ratio function in the form of F(e)=e-1.3.%在许多发达国家例如英国,土体的小应变特性已被广泛应用于预测地下建筑物施工引起的地表变形.尽管上海的城市地下基础、基坑与隧道开挖日益增多,但是关于上海原状软黏土小应变剪切模量的研究几近空白.利用装有霍尔局部应变传感器与弯曲元测试系统的三轴仪对上海软黏土剪切刚度的固有各向异性进行了研究.在等向应力状态下对方形原状上海软黏土试样进行了两组试验.试验结果表明:较之传统的初达波法和峰-峰法,互相关法一定程度上提高了弯曲元试验中确定剪切波速的客观性.由于土体水平向层理结构与颗粒间胶结作用的影

    We report the observation of eigenstates that embody large-amplitude, local-bending vibrational motion in acetylene by stimulated emission pumping spectroscopy via vibrational levels of the S1 state involving excitation in the non-totally symmetric bending modes. The N(b) = 14 level, lying at 8971.69 cm(-1) (J = 0), is assigned on the basis of degeneracy due to dynamical symmetry breaking in the local-mode limit. The level pattern for the N(b) = 16 level, lying at 10 218.9 cm(-1), is consistent with expectations for increased separation of ℓ = 0 and 2 vibrational angular momentum components. Increasingly poor agreement between our observations and the predicted positions of these levels highlights the failure of currently available normal mode effective Hamiltonian models to extrapolate to regions of the potential energy surface involving large-amplitude displacement along the acetylene ⇌ vinylidene isomerization coordinate.

    Full Text Available CMV infection is a major cause of disease following renal transplantation. Clinical diagnosis is difficult because the virus usually produces only few, if any, symptoms. Consequently rapid and sensitive diagnostic methods are needed, since clinically effective antiviral therapy is available. Qualitative-quantitative detection of CMV-DNA in leukocytes and in plasma and pp65-antigenaemia are the methods which allow to evidence viral replication activity. In this study we report the our experience about follow-up of 70 kidney transplant recipients. Results indicate that while active CMV infection occured in 25 patients (37,5%, only 11 patients (15,7% showed antigenaemia and DNAemia values predictive of CMV disease. In this study we also evaluated the efficacy of pre-emptive therapy.

    In this project descriptions of different processes for thermal treatment of ashes have been compiled. A technical and economic evaluation of the processes has been done to identify possibilities and problems. The focus in the project lays on treatment of fly ash from municipal waste incineration but the processes can also be used to treat other ashes. When the ash is heated in the thermal treatment reactor, with or without additives, the material is sintered or vitrified and at the same time volatile substances (Zn, Pb, Cd, Hg etc.) are separated. In general the separation is more effective in processes with reducing conditions compared to oxidizing conditions. Oxidizing processes have both worse separation capacity and require more energy. The oxidizing processes are mainly used to stabilize the ash through vitrification and they are in some cases developed for management of municipal sewage sludge and bottom ash. However, these processes are often not as complex as for example an electric arc melting furnace with reducing conditions. The research today aim to develop more effective electrical melting systems with reducing conditions such as plasma melting furnaces, electric resistance melting furnaces and low frequency induction furnaces. A central question in the evaluation of different thermal treatment processes for ash is how the residues from the treatment can be used. It is not certain that the vitrified material is stable enough to get a high economic value, but it can probably be used as construction material. How the remaining metals in the ash are bound is very important in a long-time perspective. Further studies with leaching tests are necessary to clarify this issue. The heavy metal concentrate from the processes contains impurities, such as chlorine, which makes it unprofitable to obtain the metals. Instead the heavy metal concentrate has to be land filled. However, the amount of material for land filling will be much smaller if only the heavy metal concentrate has to be land filled instead of the total amount of ash. The cost for thermal treatment of ash is today relatively high and this kind of ash treatment has an economic interest only during certain circumstances. The process cost is for example not very important if the residues from the process can be used in commercial glass production. Other situations that can make thermal treatment of ashes attractive are further increased land filling costs or new environmental restrictions. Today the cost for land filling in Sweden is relatively low and therefore it is unprofitable to treat ashes with high temperature processes. However, the development of more effective processes and higher costs and taxes for land filling could result in a better economic situation for thermal treatment processes.

    Ash contains elements and compounds that are questionable from an environmental point of view, such as very soluble salts, alkali yielding a high pH-value, metals, heavy metals and organic compounds. When ash is to be used, one requires that it is stable, i. e. that it does not influence the immediate surroundings and the environment in a negative way. Stability means that water that comes into contact with ash shall not pick up environmentally disruptive compounds to any significant extent. The presence of heavy metals in the ash does not always lead to their being leached to the surroundings, but it does always imply an uncertainty. It is probable that fly ash from incineration of municipal solid waste has to be treated in some way before it is landfilled. Washing the ash or dissolving it partially with a solvent such as water or an acid is a relatively simple method to reduce the risk for contamination of the environment by removing soluble compounds from the ash. Such methods consist of techniques that in other applications are proven and robust, and that may be adapted to the present conditions: the composition and the properties of the ash. In this report, a survey of methods is presented. Wet treatments may be apprehended as a combined separation and concentration process: on the one hand environmentally disruptive compounds are removed from ash, on the other hand these are concentrated in a remainder survival remission rate. These methods are a perfect pretreatment for various stabilization methods, a. o. thermal treatments such as vitrifying or sintering, or for utilization of the ashes e. g. in public works as they remove the obstacles to a good performance, namely the soluble salts. In this report are presented a systematic description of wet treatments aiming at purification and a survey of methods of industrial interest. A certain number of wet treatment methods are in operation outside Sweden, principally for fly ash from municipal solid waste incinerators. Several activities presently under way have not yet resulted in a full-scale plant. At present, it does not seem interesting to treat bioashes that are to be spread on forest soils using a wet method. Today, there is not any proven method to keep potassium in the ash or to return it to the ash. Electrodialysis could be such a technique, but at present it is still in the research stage. Extraction of metals or other components from ash does not seem to be economically profitable on its own merits today. The overall impression is that wet methods are a feasible way to treat ashes, but that they need to be studied in each case for the fly ashes or air pollution control residues that are produced in Swedish plants.

  10. New purification and upgrading technologies for biogas; Nya renings- och uppgraderingstekniker foer biogas

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Johan Benjaminsson [Linkoeping Univ. (Sweden)

    2006-04-15

    Biogas is a renewable energy source that is produced by anaerobic digestion of organic material. In Sweden, biogas predominately comes from sewage water sludge and landfills or from organic waste of households and industries. Small scale digestion plants at farms are especially expected to contribute to increased biogas production in the future. Biogas can be obtained directly in its raw form and used as fuel in a combustion chamber. However, gas engines require biogas purification from hydrogen sulphide and drying from water to avoid corrosion. In order to increase the calorific value, carbon dioxide is separated and the Swedish Standard Type A requires the methane content to be 97 % for vehicle gas. In the gas treatment process from biogas to vehicle gas, the upgrading step when carbon dioxide is separated represents the highest cost since conventional upgrading techniques require high investments. This makes the upgrading costs for smaller biogas plants relatively high. In this master thesis, six upgrading methods have been evaluated and four of them are expected to be commercialized within two years. The following upgrading methods are of interest for Sweden: - In situ methane enrichment; air desorbs carbon dioxide from the sludge in a desorption column. The method is intended for digestion of sewage water sludge and the total upgrading cost is approximately 0,13 kr/kWh by a raw biogas flow 62,5 Nm{sup 3}/h. - Small scale water scrubber; carbon dioxide is absorbed in water under enhanced pressure. The upgrading process is very similar to the conventional water scrubbing technique and the total upgrading cost is approximately 0,42 kr/kWh by a raw biogas flow of 12 Nm{sup 3}/h. - Cryogenic upgrading; the biogas is chilled to under -85 deg C under a pressure of at least 5,2 barg and carbon dioxide can be separated in the liquid phase. The total upgrading cost is approximately 0,12 kr/kWh by a raw biogas flow of 150 Nm{sup 3}/h. The total upgrading cost can be reduced if the recovered liquid carbon dioxide can be sold. - Membrane technique; biogas is upgraded with polymeric membranes that are permeable for carbon dioxide but not for methane molecules. The method is expected to be adaptable for both smaller and bigger biogas plants and the total upgrading cost is approximately 0,14 kr/kWh by a raw biogas flow of 180 Nm{sup 3}/h. All above mentioned upgrading techniques have methane losses less than two percent and all methods except for the in situ methane enrichment are expected to upgrade biogas to vehicle gas according to the Swedish Standard. In situ methane is expected to upgrade biogas up to 95 % methane content. By combustion of unpurified landfill gas in a gas engine, corrosive combustion products and white deposits are formed. Purification of landfill gas can decrease maintenance costs for gas engines. Two landfill gas purification methods have been evaluated and with the first method, contaminants are trapped in ice crystals when the gas is chilled to -25 deg C. The second method purifies landfill gas with condensed carbon dioxide. An important result of the master thesis is that the in situ methane enrichment has a chance to become an interesting alternative for smaller sewage treatment plants but the method requires additional upgrading to reach 97 % methane content. The most important conclusion is that cryogenic upgrading and membrane technique are expected to satisfy the Swedish Standard. The methods have relatively low upgrading costs and the methane losses are less than two percent. This gives them a good chance to established in Sweden.

    There is great potential to reduce energy requirements in aerobic biological purification if the oxygen demand can be reduced and oxygen delivery, when process water is aerated, is made more efficient. A model was developed to estimate the possible reduction in oxygen demand. Model variables were COD reduction, sludge withdrawal, oxygen, and alpha-value. Attempts made in an aerator in the lab-scale process shows that water content strongly affects oxygen transport and alpha-value. Surface active extract substances such as fatty acids and resin acids have greatest significance. The effect increases with the concentration of extract substances and decreases with added sodium chloride content

    Full Text Available The publication of The National Standards for History in the US in1994 has generated right wing rancor and accusations in the mediaand from the floors of Congress. In the simplest of terms, the authorsof Standards have been charged not just with having been “politicallycorrect”, but with being “thieves”, “hijackers”, and “balkanizers” ofAmerica. The Standards challenged traditional conceptions of na-tional history and became a major battleground in the culture wars inthe US. In 1995, the United States Senate passed, by a vote of 99 to 1,a resolution condemning The National Standards for History. TheStandards were revised in 1996. The controversy over Standards canbe designated as “history war”, a part of a wider “culture war” wherethe dispute is between groups who hold fundamentally opposingvisions of the meaning of America: what it has been, what it is, andwhat it should be. In this “war”, history as a school subject tends tobe reduced to ideology, a means through which the social and politicalinterests of each side of the culture divide are legitimated.

    Full Text Available One of the characteristics of modernist art and architecture is the insistence on autonomy. What happens if the two media are combined? Will they activate new artistic values – or will their insistence on individual autonomy lead to a differentiation which negates any true dialogue bearing on their status as works of art? These questions are discussed with references to sculptures by Georg Kolbe, Antoine Pevsner, Barbara Hepworth, Jean Arp, Arnold Haukeland and Ramon Isern; and the architecture of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Walter Gropius and Erling Viksjø. Also central to these topics are the public debates between architects, sculptors and architectural historians in Europe and America during the first decades after the Second World War. The issues regarding a possible integration of sculpture and architecture were highly contested during these years of optimism and economic growth. For some, the idea of a union between the two media proved to be an ideal that was perhaps never fully accomplished. Many sculptors, however, wanted to create works intended for public spaces, whether in architectural urban settings or in landscapes. Among the architects, the opinions differed from a refusal to include any works of art as part of their buildings, to those who involved in collaborative projects with artists. Others maintained that a new spatial unity could be achieved based on joint efforts on equal terms between sculptors and architects.

    Full Text Available Changes in composition, crystal structure and phase transformations of B2-(Ni,PtAl coatings upon isothermal oxidation experiments (natural and scale free oxidation at 1100 °C, as a function of time beyond their martensitic transformation, are reported. Specifically, the analysis of lattice parameter and composition are performed to identify changes in the B2-(Ni,PtAl phase upon the chemically-driven L10-(Ni,PtAl and L12-(Ni,Pt3Al transformations. The B2-(Ni,PtAl phase was found to disorder and transform the martensite during the heat treatments for both oxidation experiments at approximately 36.3 and 40.9 at. % of Al, 47.7 and 42.9 at. % of Ni, 6.2 and 8.5 at. % of Pt, 4.2 and 2.9 at. % of Cr and 4.4 and 3.8 at. % of Co. The lattice constant and the long-range order parameter of the B2-(Ni,PtAl phase decreased linearly as a function of the elemental content irrespective of the nature of the oxidation experiments.

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available The Norwegian Evangelical-Lutheran Church in America decided in 1861 to build their first college close to the western frontier of The Upper Midwest. The site chosen was a bluff above Upper Iowa River, highly visible from Decorah, a small town founded only 12 years earlier, few years after the first settlers arrived. The college building became a relatively vast structure erected between 1862 and 1865, completed to its originally planned symmetrical composition in 1874. The building style and its composition were common among American colleges and universities further east in the US. It is also demonstrated how the Luther College building façade in composition and detailing shows clear influences from a specific German building. This particular building has been designated as especially typical of the German Rundbogenstil (Style of the Rounded Arch with its great mix of various stylistic elements. The architect was known as C. H. Griese from Cleveland, Ohio. He is identified as Charles Henry Griese (1821–1909, who immigrated from Germany about 1850 and was known as a mason and contractor, from now on also as an architect. In 1869, Griese also designed the three Norwegian Lutheran churches of Washington Prairie, Stavanger and Glenwood in rural Decorah. They represented a Neo Gothic style which was new to the area, and had an evident architectural character contrasting the more ordinary vernacular churches in the area. They signify a change of style and, like the college building, they demonstrate architectural ambitions new to these Norwegians, giving insight also into the general architectural and vernacular development in the area.

  10. Experiences of membrane technique in flue gas condensate treatment applications; Utvaerdering av erfarenheter av membranteknik foer rening av roekgaskondensat

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Goldschmidt, Barbara; Ekdahl, Emma; Hellman, Mats

    2009-07-01

    Investing in a flue gas condensate treatment plant often turns out to be very profitable. The profitability comes from savings in energy and water consumption when treated waste water is recirculated, and also from savings in the NO{sub x} fee as condensate treatment allows for higher ammonia injection rates in the SNCR (NO{sub x} reduction) system. The membrane based technologies for flue gas treatment, which were investigated in this report, have proven to be successful and are operating well. However, they require that the project management is committed and acquaint themselves with the technology to avoid problems during commissioning and operation. In this project, experience with membrane based flue gas condensate treatment at ten different plants was investigated and evaluated. The ten plants are either biomass fired plants or co-combustion plants using a mixture of biomass and industrial waste. Membrane based flue gas condensate treatment is used by circa ten Swedish plants (Ultra Filtration membranes and/or Reverse Osmosis membranes, and at some plants also membranes for ammonia and carbon dioxide removal). All plants are biomass fired plants or co-combustion plants using a mixture of biomass and industrial waste. In Sweden, no plant firing municipal waste has yet been equipped with membrane based flue gas condensate treatment. These plants usually use precipitation and filtration technologies instead. Also the purpose of the condensation step is primarily to operate as a wet flue gas cleaning step. The heat recovery is of subordinate importance. Typical for these plants is also that they use condensation in several steps. The condensates from the different steps are often treated separately, as they may be of very different qualities. The RO unit is the main equipment in a membrane based water treatment plant. Pre-treatment and post-treatment of the RO water is adjusted to the incoming condensate quality, and to the requirements on the effluent. The reject water volumes of the visited RO plants are between 13 and 30%, based on RO inlet volume. The reject water percentage is dependent on the design of the RO plant. Double or triple pass RO design causes an increase in reject percentage, whereas recirculation of reject from the last RO stages helps to decrease reject percentage, and hence increases the total permeate yield. Eight of the visited plants are equipped with a UF unit as a pre-treatment step. Two plants use sand filters instead. At the time when condensate treatment equipment was installed at these two plants, UF technology was not yet used in this type of applications. The plants with UF pre-treatment have a Vibra Screen filter installed before the UF unit. In some cases additional pre-treatment is installed. Several plants have carbon dioxide removal installed before the UF unit, two plants have ammonia removal before the UF unit, one plant has precipitation and one plant has a sand filter in addition to the Vibra Screen filter. One plant has a UV generator installed before the UF unit, to prevent bacterial growth in the membranes. The concentrate, or reject, from the RO plant is relatively particle free but enriched in dissolved solids. Seven of the plants are equipped with ammonia removal. ammonia is removed either by membranes, by strippers or in the humidifier of the flue gas condenser. Almost all visited plants have high availability today. However, it often took several years to reach this goal. Reconstructions and completions with additional equipment have been made to the original installations. One plant has an availability of only 50% after eighteen months operation, and has still not been approved for trial operation. As an average, 12 hours per week of maintenance is required for the flue gas condensate treatment plants. A common feature of the visited plants is, that only pH is monitored in the inlet water to the condensate treatment plant. Although monitoring of conductivity would give valuable information on variations in condensate quality and possible operational problems, conductivity is not monitored in any plant. Manual sampling is limited to occasional samples taken to control on-line instrumentation, and to samples which are collected to control heavy metal emission to the recipient. These samples are analyzed by external laboratory at regular intervals, e.g. monthly. All the visited plants, except one, have integrated the control of the condensate treatment plant in their central control system. Normally, the condensate treatment plant can also be controlled and monitored locally to some extent

    2012-07-01

    Full Text Available The main concern of the current paper is to present mathematical model and a decision method for production planning issues of a manufacturing organization. We aim at integrating the medium term and the short term as two levels of decision. These consist in periodical planning with determining the intended produced quantity and scheduling the functioning of machines. It is worth noting that in the literature there exist only few works on the issue of integration because of the shortage of numerical results. Thus, the integrated model presented here allows us to take into consideration the scheduling constraints in the Lot-sizing model. A recent algorithm, based on a heuristic approach to find a production planning with a feasible schedule for each period, has recently been published in which the two levels of decision were applied. In this paper, some of these ideas are developed in order to get an optimal solution. For this, an exact algorithm of Benders’ decomposition method is adopted to the integration problem. This has been proved efficient with reliance primarily on modeling view and the link between the two levels of decision and secondly on the numerical view.

    Tremendous variety in form and function is displayed among the intracellular membrane systems of different eukaryotes. Until recently, few clues existed as to how these internal membrane systems had originated and diversified. However, proteomic, structural, and comparative genomics studies together have revealed extensive similarities among many of the protein complexes used in controlling the morphology and trafficking of intracellular membranes. These new insights have had a profound impact on our understanding of the evolutionary origins of the internal architecture of the eukaryotic cell.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Bagdasaryan G. Y.

    2016-03-01

    Full Text Available A comprehensive theoretical analysis of a dynamic thermo-ferro-electric pre-stressed bimorph energy harvester is performed. The analysis also takes into account pyroelectric and thermal expansion effects. The most general analytical expression for the energy conversation coefficients are presented for bi-layer. These coefficients we derive for more general situation when mechanical, electrical, thermal fields are present. We derive coefficients (transformation coefficients for sensing, actuating, and energy harvesting. As a particular case, we derive an analytical expression for the energy harvesting coefficient due to pyroelectric and thermal expansion effects in a rater general situation. This is a function of material properties, location of boundary conditions, vibration frequency, and in plane compressive/tensile follower force. Numerical simulations of the analytical results are presented. Effects of volume fraction, material properties, applied mechanical loads, and boundary conditions on the harvesting coefficients are introduced in the figures. The results for a cantilever and a simply-supported plate-layer are obtained as particular cases. The result for a low frequency (static system is obtained as a particular case by approaching the vibration frequency to zero. It is shown that volume fraction, material properties, plain compressive/tensile follower force, the location of the boundary conditions, and the vibrational frequency of the bimorph strongly influence the strain distribution, and this in effect influences the charge coefficient and the generation of energy. The proposed model can be extended to thermal energy harvesters of piezoelectric-shape memory alloy (SMA composites.

    The purpose of this paper was to extend research on Koppitz's Developmental Scoring System to Italian samples. Specific attention has been given to the study of errors for the single designs to assess the relationship of these errors with total errors and to assess the designs' varying difficulty. A second purpose was to study possible cultural influences between different Italian regions. According to Koppitz (1975) research findings support that the rate of development in visuomotor perception differs among children of various ethnic groups. Subjects were 538 boys and 527 girls enrolled in the regular kindergarten and elementary schools in Italy. Detailed analyses were carried out on total mean errors and mean errors for each design. Mean errors decrease across age groups; that is, perceptuomotor integration is improved for older children. No significant differences were found between Northern and Southern Italy.

    2011-01-01

    Particle ray tracing through simulated 3D magnetic fields was executed to investigate the effective quadrupole strength of the edge focusing of the rectangular bending magnets in the Los Alamos Proton Storage Ring (PSR). The particle rays receive a kick in the edge field of the rectangular dipole. A focal length may be calculated from the particle tracking and related to the fringe field integral (FINT) model parameter. This tech note introduces the baseline lattice model of the PSR and motivates the need for an improvement in the baseline model's vertical tune prediction, which differs from measurement by .05. An improved model of the PSR is created by modifying the fringe field integral parameter to those suggested by the ray tracing investigation. This improved model is then verified against measurement at the nominal PSR operating set point and at set points far away from the nominal operating conditions. Lastly, Linear Optics from Closed Orbits (LOCO) is employed in an orbit response matrix method for model improvement to verify the quadrupole strengths of the improved model.

    An experimental study of separation of fly ashes by a filter at high temperatures, 300-650 deg C, with the purpose to study: Capture of heavy metals (Cd, Hg, Pb, Zn) in the fly ash; Relation between heavy metal capture and temperature; Relation between heavy metal capture and the availability of fuel chlorine. Pelletized forestry waste fuel was doped with heavy metals in two different forms. Pelletized Salix was also used, without doping. The study shows that: There is a strong inverse relation between the capture of heavy metals and the filter temperature; There is a strong relation between the availability of chlorine and the capture of heavy metals. Separation at 300-650 deg C gives much less heavy metals in the fly ash, however the ash is not clean enough to allow disposal in ordinary landfills. Thus, high temperature filtering does not seem to be a promising solution for producing 'clean' fly ash.

  8. Et universitetsområde for fremtiden - Nygårdshøyden i Bergen. 1960-årenes ambisjoner, og ettertiden som tok dem ned

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available The article investigates the development of a central area in the city of Bergen from the mid 1960s onwards, called Nygårdshøyden. Lying between two harbour areas, Puddefjorden and Vågen, this topographic ridge was pointed out for necessary university expansion. The architectural firm Andersson & Skjånes’ ambitious plans for a university campus which would totally eradicate the existing urban structure, was approved by the municipal government and the university administration.  New, effective and flexible building systems had been introduced at university campuses all over the world. In Bergen, some of the buildings originally planned as academic centres were erected according to the plan by Andersson & Skjånes. Others were modified and adapted to changing architectural ideals. The present situation shows clearly how the critique of huge-scale, late-modern architecture had an impact on further developments. Economic and aesthetic aspects combined with an increasing demand for the preservation of historical structures led to modifications of the huge master plans. The dynamics of inserting new architecture into historic neighbourhoods also represent advantages on different levels, creating a diversity of spaces and volumes. The proximity of the university area to the city centre and its urban features represents a quality for students and employees. In the end, large parts of the street pattern of the university area were kept, corresponding with the rest of the city’s building structure. A substantial part of the existing buildings of the area were transformed and adapted to university needs, and new buildings have been raised partly as infill and extension projects. In this way, the planning and development of Nygårdshøyden can tell us a lot about urban development and changing ideals through the last 50 years. In addition, as always when we are looking back, we see that priorities and criteria for preservation or demolition of existing urban structures change all the time.

  9. Optimization of lime addition in a dry air pollution control device; Optimerad rening av HCl och SO{sub 2} med minskade kalktillsatser vid torr roeasrening

    2006-12-15

    The focus of this project is to optimize the absorption of hydrochloric acid (HCl) and sulphuric acid (SO{sub 2}) in a dry air pollution control device system connected to a waste combustor. A significant amount of absorbent are generally added into the processes to achieve an efficient cleaning of the flue gas. Reduced absorbent consumption has double benefits on the operative expenses due to decreased purchase and landfilling costs. The objective was to study the affect of flue gas temperature and moisture, (relative humidity, RH), on the efficiency of HCl and SO{sub 2} absorption on hydrated lime. Additionally, the efficiency of a pre-treated hydrated lime with larger specific surface and pore volume was investigated. The measuring campaign was conducted on the 20 MW fluidized bed waste incinerator own by Boraas Energi och Miljoe AB in Sweden. Results from 26 experimental days with normal hydrated lime showed a positive correlation between the efficiency of the lime and RH in the flue gas. Four levels of RH between 3.28% to 4.84% were tested. The levels were adjusted by lowering the flue gas temperature and/or by adding water to the waste fuel. The smallest effect where achieved by solely adding water to the waste fuel. RH increased solely to 3.62% and the amount of lime consumption was reduced with only 5% compare to normal condition. By lowering the flue gas temperature 10 deg C to 143 deg C, RH increased to 4.06% and the amount of lime added was reduced with 13%. The largest impact was found when both the flue gas temperature and the moisture content were changed. At those process conditions RH reach 4.84 % and the usage of lime were reduced with 26%. Additional 12 experimental days were conducted to evaluate the efficiency of a pretreated hydrated lime with larger specific surface and pore volume. The results showed that the surface enlarged absorbent was almost twice as effective as the normal hydrated lime. Moreover, the results indicated an equal dependency of variation in RH (valid within temperature window between 145-165 deg C) for the surface enlarged absorbent as for the one identified for normal hydrate lime. Results that showed additional potential to reduce in the amount of surfaced enlarged absorbent needed by optimizing the processes further. The annual operative expenses of the studied waste combustor can be reduced by 700,000 SEK (100,000 USD) by increasing the RH to 4.5% and thus reduce the amount of added normal hydrate lime with 20%. Furthermore, the annual cost can be reduced with additionally 700,000 SEK by using an absorbent with higher specific surface and pore volume. Evaluation of an on-line FTIR-system measuring the levels of HCl and SO{sub 2} in the raw gas of the waste incinerator showed the 80% of the HCl was detected in the gas-phase and 20% were capture on the particles. Reverse results were obtained for SO{sub 2}. However, the levels of SO{sub 2} in the flue gas were rather low, which may have affected the results.

    Environmental demands on the firing of solid fuels are gradually being sharpened and will in the future be regulated by different EG directives. Of particular importance is an EG directive on the incineration and co-incineration of waste. Most fractions of recycled wood fuel will be included in this directive. In the directive, high demands are placed above all on the restriction of the release of unburned compounds such as CO, TOC and dioxins. In many cases, it will be very difficult to optimise combustion in order to reduce releases of these compounds in question to the level regulated by legislation. This has therefore led to the initiation of this project on oxidation catalysts as a tool in the reduction of such emission components. In this preliminary study, 11 suppliers of oxidation catalysts have been contacted on this issue. An investigation has been carried out into their principles and costs and also interest in the application of these. Of the suppliers interviewed, 7 were seriously interested in the current application and at least 5 can be considered interesting for further discussion at later stages. Based on the information received, it could also be noted that costs for monolithium catalysts which can clean 12.000 m{sup 3}{sub n} flue gas/hour varied between approximately 60.000 and 240.000 SEK. This flow of flue gas corresponds to the amount generated by a 5 MW plant fired with normal forest chips (50% TS). Within the scope of this stage, an application study of two boilers has also been carried out (Vattenfall's boiler at Swedish Match and Marbodal). In both cases, the catalysts are considered to be able to be assembled without much reconstruction. However, it remains uncertain whether the catalysts can endure the current concentration of particles in the flue gas duct or for Swedish Match also the concentration of HCl and SO{sub 2} respectively. Finally is a proposal of how continued work in this area should be carried out described. This should take place via a combination of work in both laboratory and full scale. During laboratory experiments, the sensitivity of the catalysts for variations in H{sub 2}O, HCl, SO{sub 2} and O{sub 2} should be examined. Full-scale attempts should include approximately 6 months continuous follow-up in two separate plants. Preferably a plant fired with a fuel containing both chlorine and sulphur and also preferably a plant that fires a fuel relatively free from both these components.

  3. Evaluation of pine bark for treatment of water from biomass fueled plants; Utvaerdering av bark foer rening av vatten vid biobraensleeldade anlaeggningar

    In Sweden, large amounts of pine bark are produced as a by-product from the pulp and forest industry. This makes pine bark available in large volumes to a relative low price. Pine bark has shown good absorption effect for organics pollutants, such as oil, in water and pine bark is used commercially as an oil absorbent. In a study the pine bark has also shown to have good absorption effects on heavy metals in water, in laboratory conditions. This indicates that pine bark also could be used as a natural absorbent for heavy metals in flue gas condensate and for leachate from biomass fuel storage. For the latter purpose the bark could be used as a combined heavy metal and oil absorber. In this project the pine barks ability to absorb heavy metals from flue gas condensate has been studied. The tests were performed using an untreated flue gas condensate, which was purified by using a basket filter with commercially available pine bark (trademark EcoBark) as absorbent. The bark filter has the same function as a tube reactor, which would imply that the absorption of heavy metals should be better than the laboratory tests. However, the results from the flue gas condensate tests showed much lower absorption of heavy metals than the laboratory tests. The only significant absorption levels were found for iron and mercury, which showed a reduction ratio of about 25 %. Other metals, such as lead, cadmium, copper, nickel, vanadium and zinc had a reduction ratio of about 10 %, which is quite low compared to the 98 % reduction for lead and about 80 % for copper and zinc that was achieved in the former laboratory tests. The most probable reason that the pine bark had a very low absorbent effect in the flue gas condensate is that the concentration of potassium and calcium restrains the ion exchange capacity of the pine bark. It is also likely that iron mainly is absorbed by the bark, while other metals only are separated as particles. Another possible reason for the rather poor absorption results in the flue gas condensate tests could be that iron affects the absorption of other metals. The water temperature could also have some influence on the results while the laboratory tests were performed at a considerably lower water temperature, 22 C. The flue gas condensate tests also included measurements of COD upstream and downstream the bark filter. The analyses shows that the COD concentration in the condensate upstream the filter is very low, 20-25 mg/litre, while the COD concentration downstream the filter is considerably higher, in the range 40 - 220 mg/litre. The COD before the filter probably originates from the small amount of char particles in the flue gas condensate and the increase of COD after the bark filter comes from humus that has been dissolved from the bark. The heavy metal absorption that has been analysed in the test with flue gas condensate should be comparable with heavy metal absorption from leachate from bio fuel storage, even if the water temperature in the latter case is lower.

    2002-07-24

    Beginning in the summer of 2000, California experienced serious energy supply problems, sharp increases in wholesale (and retail) electricity and natural gas prices, and isolated blackouts. In response to the rapidly worsening electricity situation in California in late 2000, the state set, as an initial goal, the reduction of the state's peak demand for the summer of 2001 by 5,000 megawatts. To meet this goal, the governor and legislature took a variety of steps to enhance supply, encourage rapid voluntary reductions in demand, and provide incentives for actions that would result in load reductions. Three bills-Assembly Bill 970, Senate Bill X1 5 and Assembly Bill X1 29-allocated roughly $950 million for consumption and demand reduction programs. The governor also enacted a variety of additional measures, including the ''Flex Your Power'' (media awareness and direct business involvement) campaign, requirements for retail sector outdoor lighting reductions, and toughening of energy efficiency building codes. There were, in fact, significant reductions in electricity demand in California during the summer of 2001 and the large number of expected supply disruptions was avoided. To understand the nature of these demand reductions and the motivations for consumer response, Washington State University (WSU) undertook a study for the California Energy Commission (CEC) focusing on conservation behavior in the residential, commercial, and agricultural sectors. The research presented in this report represents an exploration of the response of commercial and institutional organizations to the California energy situation and the unique set of influences that existed during this time. These influences included informational messages and media attention, program interventions, price changes, and external triggering events (e.g., blackouts). To better understand the effects of these influences on organizational response to the energy situation, we conducted 84 semi-structured inter views with members of commercial and institutional organizations (many of which participated in three different California Energy Commission Programs) and with 21 key informants representing program managers, administrators, and aggregators as well as a small number of energy service providers and utilities. Separate reports examine the consumer response in the residential and agricultural sectors.

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available A comprehensive theoretical analysis of a dynamic thermo-ferro-electric pre-stressed bimorph energy harvester is performed. The analysis also takes into account pyroelectric and thermal expansion effects. The most general analytical expression for the energy conversation coefficients are presented for bi-layer. These coefficients we derive for more general situation when mechanical, electrical, thermal fields are present. We derive coefficients (transformation coefficients for sensing, actuating, and energy harvesting. As a particular case, we derive an analytical expression for the energy harvesting coefficient due to pyroelectric and thermal expansion effects in a rater general situation. This is a function of material properties, location of boundary conditions, vibration frequency, and in plane compressive/tensile follower force. Numerical simulations of the analytical results are presented. Effects of volume fraction, material properties, applied mechanical loads, and boundary conditions on the harvesting coefficients are introduced in the figures. The results for a cantilever and a simply-supported plate-layer are obtained as particular cases. The result for a low frequency (static system is obtained as a particular case by approaching the vibration frequency to zero. It is shown that volume fraction, material properties, plain compressive/tensile follower force, the location of the boundary conditions, and the vibrational frequency of the bimorph strongly influence the strain distribution, and this in effect influences the charge coefficient and the generation of energy. The proposed model can be extended to thermal energy harvesters of piezoelectric-shape memory alloy (SMA composites.

The pollutants included in the limits are suspended material, Hg, Cd, Tl, As, Pb, Cr, Cu, Ni, Zn as well as dioxins and furans. The limits of the directive applies generally for plants with combustion of waste, regardless of type of waste fraction, the degree of admixture or if it is a so called co-combustion plant or not. For new plants, the limits shall be fulfilled within two years after the date of the directive whereas existing plants have another three years to meet the new demands. In this project, the condensate from the flue gas has been analysed at five different combustion plants. Samples of the fuel have also been analysed as a reference at the evaluation of the results. The results from the analysed condensate have then been compared and evaluated with regards to the limit values in the EC-directive. However, one exception is dioxins and furans that are not included in this study. The analysis of the pure condensate show that at most plants the content of pollutants is below, or in some cases well below, the limits of the EC-directive. At plants with co-combustion of recovered biofuels, even the contents of pollutants in the non-purified raw condensate are below the limits of the directive. This means that plants with co-combustion of recovered wood waste and biofuels most likely will meet the requirements for emissions to waste water in the EC-directive. The water treatment process in these plants normally consists of a pH-adjustment stage followed by adding of chemicals before the condensate enters into a sand filter. The cleaned condensate from the sand filter is normally released to a recipient whereas the dirty condensate goes through a lamell separator in order to separate rest sludge. The most polluted raw condensate was found at a plant with 100 % combustion of municipal solid waste. However, the cleaning process of the condensate at this plant makes sure that the emissions to water are well below the limits. Another plant with admixture of municipal solid waste in the furnace had relatively high content of pollutants in the purified condensate. The cleaning process of the condensate at this plant is equivalent to the plants designed for co-combustion of recovered wood fuel. Therefore, the water cleaning process might have to be extended or adjusted, which already has been done at the plant after the sampling of this project, in order to meet the demands of the EG directive. At several of the visited plants, there have been problems with corrosion in the cleaning process of the condensate. Some components and materials have had to be changed and today exclusively plastic materials are used. One exception is the heat exchanger where metal is predominantly used to achieve good heat transfer.

    Background: The project is intended to provide a better understanding of how the service life of PP-materials is affected when used in flue-gas applications. It intends to form a basis for the development of relevant techniques and a methodology from which it is possible to give advice and guidance so that the quality of PP-materials can be ensured for a given desired service life. In addition it aims as being able to assess the status and remaining life of PP-materials in current components. Project outline - An inventory, contact and choice of facilities for closer cooperation. Plants with high proportions of PP in the equipment have been prioritised. - Visits to the chosen sites during shut-down periods for inspection and collection of samples from different PP details for further analysis in the laboratory. Collection of operating data and experiences of the use of PP (operating time/exposure conditions in different parts, component substitutions that have been made, etc.). - Systematic studies of the processes and mechanisms for stabiliser consumption over time. - Developing methods and methodology on which advice and guidance can be based so that the quality of PP-materials can be ensured for a given desired service life. The goal is to be able to assess the status and remaining service-life of the PP-materials in flue-gas applications. Results and Conclusions: It has been found that corrosion is relatively rare and that the main factors limiting the use and longevity of polypropylene are the thermal properties (thermal expansion and heat distortion). Leaching of stabilisers from the material is also commonly found but only a few cases of oxidative degradation, as a result of this, have been observed. An important part of the project has been to develop techniques and methodologies to assure the quality PP-material for a desired service life, and to assess the status and remaining life of the PP- materials in flue-gas applications. To do this, samples that had been exposed in the Brista and Igelsta works for an earlier Vaermeforsk Project (Materials for flue gas condensation, Stage 2, M4-303, 2004) were very useful for this. Here the OIT method, which has traditionally been the most commonly used to assess the remaining service life with respect to stabiliser concentration, was compared with FTIR and FTIR line-scan. It turned out that, especially the latter method, gives a clearer and fuller picture of the remaining amount of stabiliser than OIT. It also has the potential to be even more sensitive by further method development. However, none of the methods can provide a clear picture of the remaining life. It turned out that one material which would have been recommended to be taken out of service after only eight months in operation (according to all three techniques) survived another 3 years without detecting even the smallest decline in material properties. News value The results from the method development are interesting not only for the use of PP in flue-gas applications, but for all environments where PP is used. Further development of the line-scan FTIR technique may provide new opportunities for more correct lifetime predictions.

    2009-11-01

    The importance of James Robertson's work in changing the hospital conditions for young children is widely acknowledged but disputed by van der Horst and van der Veer (2009), although they presented evidence supporting his influence, they also presented considerable evidence showing that others were ignored, including writers in The Lancet and the British Medical Journal. van der Horst and van der Veer presented a muddled picture by failing to understand how the work of James Robertson influenced a wide range of people, opened up the debate and, through the Platt Report, gave parents the authority and confidence to challenge hospitals and stay with their young children. James Robertson's 1952 film "a Two-year-old Goes to Hospital" provided the 'visual communication to pierce defences as the spoken word cannot do'. This film continues to be widely used today in teaching about young children.

    The authors give an impressive list of references, but these do not reflect the situation in the UK; most of those looking after children in hospital did not write about what they did or read about what others did. Children in hospital saw little or nothing of their parents, and once they had 'settled' the doctors and nurses were unaware of their distress. John Bowlby's interest in maternal deprivation led him to appoint James Robertson as his research assistant, to observe responses of young children to loss of maternal care on admission to hospital. They formulated the theoretical framework of the three stages through which the children went; protest, despair, and detachment constituting a developmental interference. Robertson was so concerned when nobody would listen that in 1952 he made the film 'A Two Year Old Goes to Hospital', which upset children's doctors and nurses. It also probably contributed to the government setting up in 1957 a Committee chaired by Sir Harry Platt to consider the Welfare of Children in Hospital. 'Going to Hospital with Mother' was made by Robertson in 1958. With Dermod MacCarthy he showed the films to the Committee, who accepted the suggestions in Robertson's Memorandum which included unrestricted visiting and mothers being admitted with their young children. The Report, known as the Platt Report, was published in 1959. Robertson could then show his films publicly, campaign in the media and encourage the pressure group NAWCH (the National Association for the Welfare of Children in Hospital) who were successful in getting many of the Committee's recommendations implemented, to the benefit of all children in hospital.

  18. Visual scanning and matching dysfunction in brain-damaged patients with drawing impairment.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Belleza, T; Rappaport, M; Hopkins, H K; Hall, K

    1979-03-01

    Visual matching and visual exploration were examined in 7 normal subjects and 20 brain-damaged patients with drawing impairment measured by the Bender Gestalt Visual-Motor Test. Right brain-damaged patients made significantly more errors of rotation and integration than left brain-damaged patients. Selecteded Bender figures were also used as stimuli for both visual matching and visual exploration tests. The ability to match Bender figures was found to be impaired in right but not left brain-damaged patients. All patients showed eye movement and fixation patterns different from those normals. Patients essentially had more fixations and shorter fixation durations. Significant intercorrelations were found between the total Bender Gestalt score and visual matching and visual exploration scores. These findings indicate that visual matching and visual exploration measures can be used to evaluate perceptual impairment in individuals who do not have adequate motor responses or where impaired motor responses may confound interpretations about visual cognitive impairment.
