    Die große Bedeutung, die dem Lehrerberuf in der Öffentlichkeit, aber auch in den Bildungswissenschaften für die Qualität von Schule und Unterricht zugemessen wird, stand bislang in deutlichem Kontrast zu Umfang und Intensität der Forschung, die auf den Lehrerberuf gerichtet war. Diese immer wieder beklagte Situation hat sich jedoch gewandelt. Seit etwa einem Jahrzehnt ist eine deutliche Intensivierung und allmähliche Verstetigung der Forschung zum Lehrerberuf zu beobachten. Mit dem vorliegenden Handbuch wird erstmalig eine repräsentative Übersicht über den aktuellen Stand der Forschung zum Lehrerberuf vermittelt. Unter intensiver Berücksichtigung der internationalen Fachdiskussion informieren die 45 Beiträge des Handbuchs über Forschung zu folgenden Themenfeldern: Geschichte des Lehrerberufs, Charakteristika und Rahmenbedingungen des Lehrerberufs, Konzepte der Forschung zum Lehrerberuf, Berufsbiographien von Lehrerinnen und Lehrern, Lehrerbildung, Kognitionen, Emotionen und Kompetenzen von Lehrern...

    Full Text Available Die Bedeutung der Bilder in der öffentlichen Kommunikation hat in den letzten Jahren stark zugenommen. Nicht umsonst spricht William Mitchell in seinem Buch «Picture Theory» (1994 von einem «pictorial turn», der sich an den «linguistic turn» anschliesse. Er konstatiert programmatisch: «we may find that the problem of the twenty-first century is the problem of the image». Betrachtet man den Bereich der erziehungs- und sozialwissenschaftlichen Forschung unter der Perspektive, welche Bedeutung hier visuellem Material zukommt, dann stellt man nüchtern fest, dass in den Bereichen der Datenerhebung wie auch der Datenauswertung in methodologischer wie auch in methodischer Hinsicht Defizite bestehen. Das gilt für qualitative wie auch für quantitative Forschungsmethoden gleichermassen. Die wesentlichen Fortschritte qualitativer Methoden in den letzten dreissig Jahren sind beispielsweise vor allem mit neuen Entwicklungen im Bereich der Interpretation von Texten (Interviews, Gruppendiskussion, ethnografische Verfahren verbunden. Sie stehen im Zusammenhang mit dem «linguistic turn» in den Sozialwissenschaften (konversations- und narrationsanalytische Auswertungsverfahren und gehen einher mit einer Marginalisierung der Interpretation visueller Dokumente. Bilder wurden wesentlich auch als Texte gesehen («Die Welt als Text». Artikulation und kommunikative Verständigung vollziehen sich aber nicht nur im Medium der Sprache und des Textes, sondern auch in demjenigen des Bildes bzw. bewegter Bilder (Film. Die Methoden zum Sprach- und Textverstehen sind relativ gut ausgearbeitet, die Methoden zur Film- und Bildinterpretation sind es im Kontext sozialwissenschaftlicher Forschung nicht. Natürlich gibt es ausgearbeitete Traditionen für die Bildinterpretation im Bereich der Kunstwissenschaft und für Filminterpretation im Bereich der Filmwissenschaft, aber hier liegen andere Fragestellungen zugrunde.

    Since several years, Bergbau-Forschung GmbH is running a continuous experimental plant (Kohleoel), in which coals are decomposed and hydrogenated to light- and middle-distillates. The process is based on the sumpphase-technique, developed by Bergius and the IG-Farbenindustrie, and serves as basis for the pilot-plant, which has been established commonly by RAG and Veba in Bottrop and is in operation at this time. The existing results and experiences drawn from the experimental plant are summarized. Especially the influences of the amounts of catalyst, mineral matter and total gas throughput, the suitability of different coals and the properties of the product oil are reported in this paper.

    Full Text Available Seit den 1980er-Jahren haben sich qualitative Forschungsansätze in den Sozialwissenschaften stark verbreitet. In der Medienpädagogik ist dies nicht zuletzt mit einer Hinwendung zu subjektorientierten Ansätzen und Methoden verbunden, die den Fokus der Forschung auf den aktiven Umgang der Menschen mit Medien legen. Seither haben sich die Zugänge und Konzepte der qualitativen Forschung stark differenziert – etwa mit Entwicklungen wie: die Herausbildung konkreter Forschungsprogramme wie grounded theory, die Diskussionen um Gütekriterien der qualitativen Forschung, die Diskussion zur Verbindung von qualitativen und quantitativen Methoden (Triangulation, die Entwicklung von Programmen zur qualitativen Daten- und Inhaltsanalyse, der Hinwendung zu ethnographischen Verfahren, der verstärkte Einbezug visueller Methoden (z.B. Zeichnungen, Foto, Video, die Erneuerung von Konzepten der Aktions- und Praxisforschung, eine Betonung dekonstruktiver Ansätze, die insbesondere die Position der Forschenden thematisieren. In der Medienpädagogik ist mitunter auch argumentiert worden, dass der Stand der methodologischen Entwicklung seit den 1990er Jahren stagniere.

    The energy transition in the heating sector is not a sure-fire success and it is too slow. This is alarming since the heating / cooling sector is responsible for more than half of the final energy demand. That the ''thermal change'' has accelerated hardly despite many efforts by politics, industry and research in recent years, is the reason for the scientists the FVEE institutes to examine the perspectives of renewable energy and the need to increase efficiency in the heating sector systematically. therefore FVEE-2015 Annual Meeting, is entitled ''Research for the thermal change''. The contributions of this conference proceedings present the latest research results and show ways to implement the heat change technically, economically and politically. They are dedicated to the drivers, but also the barriers of heat change. The authors report on innovative projects to provide buildings with heat from geothermal energy, biomass and solar thermal energy. Several contributions are dedicated to the application of efficient components, such as thermal insulation, thermal storage and heat pumps. [German] Die Energiewende im Waermesektor ist kein Selbstlaeufer und kommt zu langsam voran. Das ist alarmierend, da der Waerme-/Kaeltesektor fuer ueber die Haelfte des Endenergiebedarfs verantwortlich ist. Dass die ''Waermewende'' trotz vielerlei Bemuehungen von Politik, Industrie und Forschung in den letzten Jahren kaum Fahrt aufgenommen hat, ist Anlass fuer die Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler der FVEE-Institute, die Perspektiven der erneuerbaren Energien und der notwendigen Effizienzsteigerung im Waermesektor systematisch zu untersuchen. Die FVEE-Jahrestagung 2015 steht deshalb unter dem Leitthema ''Forschung fuer die Waermewende''. Die Beitraege dieses Tagungsbandes praesentieren aktuelle Forschungsergebnisse und zeigen Wege auf, um die Waermewende technisch, wirtschaftlich und politisch

    The content and the new appearance of Volume 23 of `Research, Technology and Innovation` reflects the current restructuring of the Preussag Group. Although the specific characteristics of the new divisions make it currently impossible to fully echo the new Group structure in the status reports on R and D projects and innovations in this volume, the new focus of the company has already had a considerable impact on its layout and content. The enhanced growth discernible in the Energy, Building Engineering and Logistics Divisions is reflected in expanded R and D activities which make up an impressive proportion of the papers presented in this publication.

  19. Situation and outlook of geoscientific hydrocarbon research; Stand und Ausblick der geowissenschaftlichen Kohlenwasserstoff-Forschung

    1998-04-01

    Considerable success in geoscientific hydrocarbon research has recently been achieved in the development and use of 3D seismics so that facies development, porosity and new previously unknown structures can be analysed. The different media in the source rocks, oil, gas or water can be recognised. When 3D seismics are repeated at various time intervals the level of oil depletion of a deposit can for example be calculated. The method then becomes 4D seismics. Further examples of recent developments quickly put to pragmatic use are basin models that allow a better identification of the oil and gas windows as well as the hydrocarbon geochemistry with oil source rock correlations and reconstruction of the maturity history. In the case of future hydrocarbon potential which will have to be researched in the forefield of industrial activities, in the marine sector, continental slopes that are at 75 million km{sup 2} bigger than all continental basins, have a high priority. It is estimated that potential source and reservoir rocks with corresponding structures occur in the different plate rims. Gas hydrates, solid aggregates of water and methane, that have been observed in permafrost areas and as `bottom simulating reflectors` in the marine sector, probably have an enormous energy potential for the future. Coal bed methane, deep gases from deeply buried basin areas also have future potential. (orig./HS) [Deutsch] Wesentliche Fortschritte bei der geowissenschaftlichen Kohlenwasserstoff-Forschung sind in juengster Zeit bei der Weiterentwicklung und Anwendung der 3D-Seismik erzielt worden, so dass Faziesentwicklung, Porositaeten und neue, bisher unerkannte Strukturen analysiert werden koennen. Die verschiedenen Medien in den Speichergesteinen, Oel, Gas oder Wasser, koennen erkannt werden. Aus der Wiederholung der 3D-Seismik in verschiedenen Zeitabstaenden kann z.B. der Entoelungsgrad einer Lagerstaette berechnet werden. Die Methode wird dann zur 4D-Seismik. Weitere Beispiele

Die meisten Trainingsprogramme für wissenschaftlich interessierte Studierende finden auf freiwilliger Basis statt. In Deutschland ist das Schreiben einer Doktorarbeit erforderlich, um den Titel "Dr. med." zu führen. Die Gründe, warum Studierende eine Dissertation beginnen und welchen Einfluss ihr wissenschaftliches Projekt auf den Verlauf des Studiums und die spätere Berufswahl haben, sind nur unzureichend untersucht.Methoden: Die Studie wurde an fünf deutschen Universitäten im Jahre 2003 durchgeführt. Insgesamt nahmen 467 Studierende des fünften Studienjahres daran teil. Mit Hilfe eines standardisierten Fragebogens wurden die Teilnehmer über ihre aktuelle oder bereits abgeschlossene Dissertation (Gruppe A oder ein abgebrochenes Dissertationsprojekt (Gruppe B befragt. Studierende, die kein Dissertationsprojekt begonnen hatten, wurden über die Gründe hierzu befragt (Gruppe C.Ergebnisse: Die beiden Hauptgründe für Studierende der Gruppe A eine Dissertation zu beginnen waren "Interesse am Thema" und "Vorteile bei späteren Bewerbungen". Im Vergleich zur Gruppe B wurden verbesserte Fähigkeiten sich "kritisch mit den Methoden wissenschaftlicher Studien auseinander zu setzen" und "eigenständiges wissenschaftliches Arbeiten" signifikant häufiger als Resultat der Beschäftigung mit der Dissertation von Studierenden der Gruppe A genannt. Ein Beginn der Promotion in frühen Studienjahren korrelierte mit einem schlechteren Erfolg der Dissertation. Weiterhin reduzierte die Arbeit an einer Dissertation signifikant die Zeit, die für das Studium aufgewendet wurde. Studierende der Gruppe C nannten die Arbeitsbelastung im Studium und "keine Zeit" als die häufigsten Gründe für den Nichtbeginn einer Dissertation

    2006-06-06

    The paper deals with the activities of the Bergbau-Forschung Coal Petrography Laboratory in Essen (Germany), which, under the influence of Marie-Therese Mackowsky, developed into a stronghold of the industrial application of coal petrology. In 1979, the formerly independent Section for Mineralogy and Petrology was merged with the Chemistry Section. This synergy has widened the research limits and resulted in higher efficiency of projects being carried out within both units. Since 1990, after transforming Bergbau-Forschung into DMT GmbH, a worldwide competition within hard coal and hard coal-based coke markets, together with the switch of the industry towards alternative energy sources, have significantly lowered the importance of the domestic coal mining industry. This in turn resulted in reduction of coal research programs. However, it is stressed that, in spite of transformations of the applied coal petrology experienced during the past 50 years, some achievements are still as applicable as ever. Among them, the method of predicting coke strength using maceral analysis and coal types, published by Mackowsky and Simonis [Mackowsky, M.-Th., Simonis, W., 1969. Die Kennzeichnung von Kokskohlen fur die mathematische Beschreibung der Hochtemperaturverkokung im Horizontalkammerofen bei Schuttbetrieb durch Ergebnisse mikroskopischer Analysen. Gluckauf-Forschungshefte 30, 25-27], is still in use today. The second part of this paper presents some examples of coal petrography applications, which are still important in carbonization processes. Mackowsky discovered that the pyrolytic components were influencing the coke homogeneity in coke ovens and affected coke quality parameters such as CRI and CSR. These highly graphitic layers and lenses prevent gasification of the inner zones of coke lumps, thus lowering the reactivity of metallurgical coke. Moreover, it also seems possible to predict wall load and maximum internal gas pressure as to prevent coke ovens from damage

The project is based on a system of building automation using as many standard elements of hardware and software as possible. This will guarantee a high degree of independence from suppliers and subcontractors. The project has led to a reliable working base for the evaluation, measuring and control for ca. 150 municipal buildings. (orig.)

    Full Text Available In Europa wird die Idee der Qualitätsverbesserung auf dem Gebiet der Endometriose vertieft. Verschiedene "Task Forces" arbeiten mit zum Teil identischen Methoden am gleichen Ziel. Die Bildung spezialisierter Endometriosezentren verbunden mit einer breiten Qualifikation der Ärzte und des medizinischen Personals gehören – begleitet von der Unterstützung der Forschung – ebenso in dieses Spektrum wie die Schulung und Information der betroffenen Frauen sowie die Sensibilisierung der Gesundheitspolitik, der Kostenträger und der Industrie. Vor dem Hintergrund knapper Ressourcen ist eine Bündelung des vorhandenen nationalen und internationalen Engagements absehbar und notwendig. Inwieweit dies zur konsequenten Gründung von einheitlichen nationalen Endometriose-Gruppen als Basis einer europäischen Dachgesellschaft führen könnte, bleibt abzuwarten. Wünschenswert ist es allemal.

    Full Text Available Visuelle Methoden haben in verschiedenen Bereichen qualitativer Forschung eine wichtige Bedeutung. Zu nennen sind vor allem die visuelle Soziologie und die visuelle Anthropologie. Fotografie und Video werden bei teilnehmender Beobachtung zusätzlich zu Feldnotizen eingesetzt. Video dient zur Dokumentation von Interviews und Gruppendiskussionen. Bilder oder Filmsequenzen sind geeignet, um Kommunikation im Rahmen von Interviews zu stimulieren ("photo-elicitation", vgl. Prosser/Schwartz 1998, S. 123. In Pierre Bourdieus Arbeiten lassen sich einige interessante Beispiele für diesen Ansatz finden (Bourdieu 1987, S. 87.

    Full Text Available Im Zentrum von Soziologie im Allgemeinen und interpretativer Sozialforschung im Besonderen stehen in der Regel unhinterfragt Menschen und ihre Weltdeutungen. In aktuellen sozialtheoretischen Debatten und empirischen Forschungen wird die Zentralstellung des Menschen in soziologischen Analysen jedoch zunehmend infrage gestellt. Vor diesem Hintergrund geht der vorliegende Beitrag der Frage nach, wie Sozialität jenseits der Fixierung auf menschliche Akteur/innen konzipiert werden kann und wie sich Grenzziehungen zwischen Sozialem und Nicht-Sozialem in gegenstandsangemessener Perspektive untersuchen lassen. Hierzu werden in Auseinandersetzung mit konkurrierenden Überlegungen (insbesondere der Akteur-Netzwerk-Theorie und Ansätzen, die subjektive Sichtweisen von Akteuren und Akteurinnen fokussieren, eine kommunikationstheoretische Perspektive auf die Grenzen des Sozialen und eine darauf aufbauende Methodologie entwickelt, die ergebnisoffene Forschung an und zu den Grenzen des Sozialen anleiten können. Wie sich entsprechende empirische Analysen konkret umsetzen lassen, wird exemplarisch an einem Fall der Mensch-Maschine-Kommunikation in einer virtuellen Welt gezeigt.

    In Germany, persons who are to be exposed to radiation for medical research purposes are protected by a licensing requirement. However, there are considerable uncertainties on the part of the applicants as to whether licensing by the competent Federal Office for Radiation Protection is necessary, and regarding the choice of application procedure. The article provides explanatory notes and practical assistance for applicants and an outlook on the forthcoming new regulations concerning the law on radiation protection of persons in the field of medical research. Questions and typical mistakes in the application process were identified and evaluated. The qualified physicians involved in a study are responsible for deciding whether a license is required for the intended application of radiation. The decision can be guided by answering the key question whether the study participants would undergo the same exposures regarding type and extent if they had not taken part in the study. When physicians are still unsure about their decision, they can seek the advisory service provided by the professional medical societies. Certain groups of people are particularly protected through the prohibition or restriction of radiation exposure. A simplified licensing procedure is used for a proportion of diagnostic procedures involving radiation when all related requirements are met; otherwise, the regular licensing procedure should be used. The new radiation protection law, which will enter into force on the 31st of december 2018, provides a notification procedure in addition to deadlines for both the notification and the licensing procedures. In the article, the authors consider how eligible studies involving applications of radiation that are legally not admissible at present may be feasible in the future, while still ensuring a high protection level for study participants.

    Full Text Available This overview focuses Mobile Learning (M-Learning from an educational point of view. M-Learning, which found its way into different educational contexts since the middle of the 1990s, is a dynamic and interdisciplinary field. It is dynamic because of the rapid development of information and communication technology and the partly huge resulting changings. It is interdisciplinary because mobile technology and learning concern different scientific disciplines. Different points of view and the field´s complexity are major reasons for missing a consistent definition of the term M-Learning. This paper aims to show the current state of the art in research from an educational point of view. Therefore at first it shows important components of the term M-Learning. Afterwards important didactic models and theories will be introduced and commented. Based on this theoretical background the paper shows a frame that pitches starting points for educational research. Finally, corresponding research is introduced in order to present the current state of the art. By doing so the prospective need of educational research in the M-Learning field shall be demonstrated.

In drawing on the experiences from more than three decades of social science research on this West African country, it refers to examples from the past and present of African Studies in Germany, as well as describing the potential for German–African cooperation in this field in the future. Aside from this, it raises the question of whether and how social science cooperation is possible given the economic and power disparities. It is argued that cooperation “on equal terms” will not be easy to achieve but must be consistently striven for – personally as well as politically.Dieser Bericht fasst die Beiträge und Debatten einer Konferenz zur deutsch-beninischen Kooperation in der Sozialforschung (Universität Bayreuth, 8.-10. März 2012 zusammen. Indem Erfahrungen aus drei Jahrzehnten Sozialforschung zu diesem westafrikanischen Land skizziert werden, entsteht beispielhaft ein Bild der Afrikaforschung in Deutschland. Die Potenziale deutsch-afrikanischer Zusammenarbeit in diesem Bereich werden deutlich. Gleichzeitig wird die Frage beleuchtet, ob und wie angesichts der vorhandenen wirtschaftlichen Unterschiede und hierarchischen Strukturen eine Kooperation in der sozialwissenschaftlichen Forschung möglich ist. Die Autorinnen halten eine Zusammenarbeit zu gleichen Bedingungen für schwer erreichbar, plädieren aber dafür, sich kontinuierlich dafür einzusetzen – persönlich und politisch.

    The idea of a 'zero emission city' is investigated by the Institut Wohnen und Umwelt on behalf of the Federal Minister of Education and Research. After describing the current situation and defining the key parameters of a 'zero emission city', settlement structures, power supply, production processes and transportation are analyzed and linked with the communal action level to obtain a framework for research, activities and actions. The study ends with recommendations for a research programme 'zero emission city'. (orig.)

    As globalisation extends in all fields of life, university teaching must cope by integrating internationalisation in its teaching subjects. In the case of raw materials resources and mining, the case is quite clear: Industrialized countries like Germany are big consumers of raw materials, most of which must be imported. Mining companies, including German mining companies, have extended their activities world-wide, and German producers of mining machinery and sytems, consultants and mining specialists are exporting technology and know-how into raw materials producing countries. Universities must take account of these trends if they are to train students for tomorrow's international market. The TU Bergakademie Freiberg is presented as an example. (orig.)

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available Over the past ten to fifteen years, web-based methods of sociological research have emerged alongside classical methods such as interviews, observations and experiments, and linguistic research is increasingly relying upon them as well. This paper provides an overview of three web-based approaches, i.e. online surveys, crowd-sourcing and web-based corpus analyses. Examples from specific projects serve to reflect upon these methods, address their potential and limitations, and make a critical appraisal. Internet-based empirical research produces vast and highly diverse quantities of (speaker-based or textual data, presenting linguistic research with new opportunities and challenges. New procedures are required to make effective use of these resources.

The study area was supposed to be a species rich ecosystem and this led us to select this area as our study site. We wish to thank the Director of the Reserve for his logistical support, the scientific cooperation and, above all, for his friendship all over the years, that has grown during the research work in Costa Rica. We also wish to thank Victor Mora and Hugo Perez Z. vicariously for all contributers who have enabled us to do our research work under frequently difficult conditions of a recently established Biological Station in a real wet climate. Further more we wish to thank the University of Costa Rice (UCR) for the permission of using their facilities and all persons for their support to feel at home in a foreign country. We do hope that this volume may enhance more cooperative research between both partners and may also be a mean for students to decide to do research in fascinating primary forest to understand at least a small portion of the complex structure and the manyfold functions of such a forest in order to help to preserve these areas for future generations.

    The purification of gaseous material flows is an essential sub-process of energy conversion from carbon-containing materials. Likewise waste streams from coal-fired power plants, end products of anaerobic digestion from waste and agricultural biogas plants are treated. The state-of-the-art in gas purification is Pressure Swing Adsorbtion, Pressure Water Scrubbing and chemical/organic Scrubbing. Additionally gas separation methodes via membranes are currently established. Research and Development activities enclose the purification strategies: In-process Enrichment and Cryogenic Gas Separation. Moreover the relevance of biological processes for hydrogen sulfide-, carbon dioxide- and oxygen removal increases. In this context the biological CO{sub 2}- and O{sub 2} separation are currently examined at the University of Rostock. The investigations focus on the development of a regenerative gas washing process based on phototrophic microorganisms. (orig.)

  17. f(R Theories

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Antonio De Felice

    2010-06-01

    Full Text Available Over the past decade, f(R theories have been extensively studied as one of the simplest modifications to General Relativity. In this article we review various applications of f(R theories to cosmology and gravity – such as inflation, dark energy, local gravity constraints, cosmological perturbations, and spherically symmetric solutions in weak and strong gravitational backgrounds. We present a number of ways to distinguish those theories from General Relativity observationally and experimentally. We also discuss the extension to other modified gravity theories such as Brans–Dicke theory and Gauss–Bonnet gravity, and address models that can satisfy both cosmological and local gravity constraints.

    We introduce the discrete Fr\\'echet gap and its variants as an alternative measure of similarity between polygonal curves. We believe that for some applications the new measure (and its variants) may better reflect our intuitive notion of similarity than the discrete Fr\\'echet distance (and its variants), since the latter measure is indifferent to (matched) pairs of points that are relatively close to each other. Referring to the frogs analogy by which the discrete Fr\\'echet distance is often...

    The Bundesministerium fuer Bildung, Wissenschaft, Forschung und Technik (B.M.B.F.-Federal Ministry for Education, Science, Research and Technology) funds the '250 MW Wind' test programme. This programme is designed to acquire statistically relevant data concerning the practical use of wind energy converters (WECs) in the Federal Republic of Germany. The technological and scientific areas of this supportive measure, the 'Wissenschaftliche Mess- und Evaluierungsprogramm' (WMEP - Scientific Measurement and Evaluation Programme), are implemented by the Institut fuer Solare Energieversorgungstechnik (ISET - Institute for Solar Energy Supply Technology) in Kassel. The WMEP acquires and evaluates performance data concerning all funded WECs for a 10 year period. The following areas are the main focal points of the programme: Wind Resources: Local and regional distribution of wind resources in Germany, wind conditions at specific sites. WEC Performance: Energy production and consumption of WECs, periods of grid interconnection, periods of full and partial load, performance characteristics. Reliability: Technical availability, causes of faults, malperformance, component failure. Economics: Income through the operation of the WEC, costs related to maintenance, repair and insurance. Intensive statistical evaluations concerning these focal points are implemented, based on the continuously acquired operational data of each WEC. The results are presented in this report, in a form compatible to the evaluations of recent years. (orig.)

  16. 25 years 'atomwirtschaft - atomtechnik'

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    On the occasion of the Annual Meeting Nuclear Engineering 1981 in the congress centre of the Neue Messe in Duesseldorf on 23rd March 1981 the Handelsblatt-Verlag had organized a reception for the silver jubilee of the technical journal 'atomwirtschaft-atomtechnik' the first edition of which had been published in January 1956. The manager of the publishing house in charge of the technical journals had welcomed more than 420 participants, among them over 50 journalists. After the president of the Kerntechnische Gesellschaft had greeted the guests, the State Secretary in the Bundesministerium fuer Forschung und Technologie, Hans-Hilger Haunschild, delivered the jubilee speech. The panel discussion was dedicated to the field of tension between nuclear energy and the public. Opposite to the usual enquiry scheme the question was, i.e. scientists were asking journalists: why do the media object to nuclear energy and other technologies. Not only did two nuclear energy specialists have the opportunity of criticizing the media and complaining about them but also were three journalists from the fields of daily press, television and journals able to demonstrate the effects of the behaviour of scientists and technicians in front of the public and the aspects of the work in the editor's offices to their discussion partners and the audience.

  17. Graphitic matrix materials for spherical HTR fuel elements

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Rind, W.; Schulze, R.E.; Schulze, H.A.

    1981-12-01

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

  18. Experimental investigations of pressure and temperature loads on a containment after a loss-of-coolant accident

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Kanzleiter, T.

    1975-10-01

    The phenomena occuring within a containment during a LOCA are currently investigated through experiments with a modelcontainment at Battelle-Institut Frankfurt on behalf of the Bundesministerium fuer Forschung und Technologie, Bonn. The experimental results are to be compared with the results of model calculations in order to improve the calculational methods. An experimental facility was built, consisting of a primary coolant circuit and a special model-containment. The model-containment, built in conventional reinforced concrete, has a diameter of 12 m, a height of 12.5 m, a capacity of 580 m 3 and is designed for an internal pressure of 6 bar. The interior is divided by concrete walls and removable partitions into several compartments, which are interconnected through openings with adjustable cross section. By exchanging the removable partitions it is possible to modify the interior of the containment and to simulate different containment shapes. For the first experiment a PWR-configuration with nine compartments has been istalled. The model scale of the compartment volumes and the overflow areas are about 1:64 compared to the 1,200-MW-PWR-plant Biblis A. Later investigations will also include BWR-experiments and experiments leading to an extremely high load on special containment structures. (orig.) [de

Zahlreiche Studien verweisen darauf, dass sie mit zunehmendem Alter sinkt, was dementsprechend mit einem Verlust an gesellschaftlicher Integration und sinkender Lebensqualität assoziiert wird. Dennoch existieren bislang keine Erkenntnisse darüber, wie dieser Prozess auf der Subjektebene konkret gestaltet wird, wie Veränderungen vor dem Hintergrund welcher (räumlichen Wahrnehmungen und Überzeugungen von den Individuen initiiert werden. Hier setzt die dem Beitrag zugrunde liegende Untersuchung an: Das Ziel ist es, auf der Basis einer qualitativ orientierten Untersuchung herauszuarbeiten, wie Veränderungen der Mobilität im Kontext der subjektiven Konstruktionsleistungen und Handlungen der Älteren in einer gegenstandsorientierten Theorie gefasst und erklärt werden können. In einem zweiten Schritt werden prospektiv Thesen darüber entwickelt, in welcher Weise der Einsatz eines technischen Hilfsmittels – eines "Mobilitätsassistenten", der im Rahmen eines vom BMBF (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung geförderten Projekts entwickelt wird – auf die Wahrnehmungen und Überzeugungen der Älteren Einfluss nehmen und darauf aufbauend deren Mobilität fördern könnte.

    This report for the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE), takes a look at a project involving a fermenter installation in Eastern Switzerland. Research work is noted, the pilot installation is described and the results of a measurement campaign are presented and commented on. The plant is able to handle about 20,000-25,000 tonnes of slurry and organic waste. The plant is built as a membrane bio-reactor and allows the separation of the digested biomass into fractions of solid and liquid fertilisers and useful water. Furthermore, a part of the separated and digested liquid is returned to the fermenter in order to improve the digestion process. For the production of electricity a 1.1 MW generator is installed. The adaptations made during the measurement period are noted and commented on. According to the authors, the results - although difficult to interpret - show that the concept of a membrane bio-reactor can work successfully.

    Raw material conflict occurs in various forms: in the form of supply bottlenecks and crises, violent disputes, or even war; as well as due to the effects of environmental destruction, whereby the sources of people's livelihood are lost. Raw material conflict is a reality in many instances, but in others is merely postulated. On the one hand, the nature, strategic importance and price of raw materials influence potential conflict constellations. On the other hand, much depends on the management and governance of raw material resources and production, material flows, value creation chains and sources of financing, across a variety of levels. Existing research into raw material conflict in the field of oil, gas and valuable minerals reveals the multi-layered complexity of the issue as well as the necessity and possibilities of avoiding such conflict in a sustainable manner over the long term. This research landscape was the starting point for the study by adelphi and the Wuppertal Institute titled ''Sustainable Prevention of Resource Conflicts: Identifying and reducing international conflict risk relating to access to and use of raw materials''. The project has added to existing research and delivered new perspectives in relation to lithium and rare earths - resources which are of special relevance for future energy supply and planning - with a view to developing renewable energy sources and meeting ambitious climate protection goals. This report summarises the results of the research project and sets out recommendations. The project was sponsored by the German Federal Environmental Agency, and was conducted in the period between July 2008 and September 2010. The results are published in a total of eight reports which are briefly summarised here. (orig.)

    Full Text Available Mit der Transformation des gedruckten Buch zum elektronischen Text verändern sich zentrale Rahmenbedingungen der Bibliothek. Die theoretischen Grundlagen des ‚Buches‘ müssen unter dem Gesichtspunkt des Digitalen neu durchdacht und auf ihre praktischen Konsequenzen hin geprüft werden. Vor allem die Transitivität, spezifische Schriftlichkeit und Prozessierbarkeit elektronischer Texte sind Eigenschaften, die Konsequenzen für eine ganze Reihe bibliothekarischer Kernaufgaben haben. Mit Blick auf das kulturelle Erbe, das in Bibliotheken verwahrt wird, stellt sich die Aufgabe, auf diesen Paradigmenwechsel angemessen zu reagieren und Sorge dafür zu tragen, dass das schriftliche und gedruckte Kulturgut auch in einer adäquaten maschinenlesbaren Form zur Verfügung steht. Nach gut 10 Jahren erfolgreicher Imagedigitalisierung muss daher jetzt, nach der Entwicklung entsprechender Techniken der nächste Schritt zur Herstellung, Aufbereitung und Bereitstellung von Volltext getan werden, um neuen, sich aus der digitalen Wende ergebenden Forschungsanforderungen und Forschungsfragen, die sich mit Begriffen wie Stilometrie, Clusteranalyse, Topic Modeling etc. verbinden, zu genügen. Den Bibliotheken wächst vor diesem Hintergrund in der Transformation des schriftlichen Kulturgutes und Bereitstellung von Volltexten eine neue Aufgabe zu. Sie können darin einen wichtigen Beitrag zum Aufbau einer Infrastruktur für eine digital arbeitende Geistes- und Kultwissenschaft bzw. die Digital Humanities leisten. The transformation of the book into an electronic text has led to constitutive changes in the functional frameworks of the library. Basic concepts of the notion of the ‘book’ have to be reconsidered and to be evaluated in view of the practical consequences. Above all, the transitivity of such texts, the specific mode of writing employed, and their ability to be processed are aspects that have considerable impact on several core tasks of the library. In view of the cultural heritage that is preserved in libraries this paradigmatic shift requires an appropriate response, and libraries have the task of converting artifacts of written and printed cultural heritage into machine-readable form and to provide access to it. After ten years of successful image digitization and the development of suitable techniques, the aim is now to produce, enhance and provide access to full text in order to fulfill new research requirements and deal with the issues involved. This involves methods such as stylometry, cluster analysis or topic modeling. In taking on these new tasks libraries can make an important contribution to building up a research infrastructure for the digital humanities.

    Odintsov, S. D.; Oikonomou, V. K.

    2016-07-01

    We propose the unimodular-mimetic F(R) gravity theory, to resolve cosmological constant problem and dark matter problem in a unified geometric manner. We demonstrate that such a theory naturally admits accelerating universe evolution. Furthermore, we construct unimodular-mimetic F(R) inflationary cosmological scenarios compatible with the Planck and BICEP2/Keck-Array observational data. We also address the graceful exit issue, which is guaranteed by the existence of unstable de Sitter vacua.

    Mazharimousavi, S. Habib; Halilsoy, M.

    2016-10-01

    Without reference to exotic sources construction of viable wormholes in Einstein’s general relativity remained ever a myth. With the advent of modified theories, however, specifically the f(R) theory, new hopes arose for the possibility of such objects. From this token, we construct traversable wormholes in f(R) theory supported by a fluid source which respects at least the weak energy conditions. We provide an example (Example 1) of asymptotically flat wormhole in f(R) gravity without ghosts.

    2017-08-15

    The scalar-tensor f(R) theory of gravity is considered in the framework of a simple inhomogeneous space-time model. In this research we use the reconstruction technique to look for possible evolving wormhole solutions within viable f(R) gravity formalism. These f(R) models are then constrained so that they are consistent with existing experimental data. Energy conditions related to the matter threading the wormhole are analyzed graphically and are in general found to obey the null energy conditions (NEC) in regions around the throat, while in the limit f(R) = R, NEC can be violated at large in regions around the throat.

  12. FR Cnc revisited: photometry, polarimetry and spectroscopy

    This paper is part of a multiwavelength study aimed at using complementary photometric, polarimetric and spectroscopic data to achieve an understanding of the activity process in late-type stars. Here, we present the study of FR Cnc, a young, active and spotted star. We performed analysis of All Sky Automated Survey 3 (ASAS-3) data for the years 2002-08 and amended the value of the rotational period to be 0.826518 d. The amplitude of photometric variations decreased abruptly in the year 2005, while the mean brightness remained the same, which was interpreted as a quick redistribution of spots. BVRC and IC broad-band photometric calibration was performed for 166 stars in FR Cnc vicinity. The photometry at Terskol Observatory shows two brightening episodes, one of which occurred at the same phase as the flare of 2006 November 23. Polarimetric BVR observations indicate the probable presence of a supplementary source of polarization. We monitored FR Cnc spectroscopically during the years 2004-08. We concluded that the radial velocity changes cannot be explained by the binary nature of FR Cnc. We determined the spectral type of FR Cnc as K7V. Calculated galactic space-velocity components (U, V, W) indicate that FR Cnc belongs to the young disc population and might also belong to the IC 2391 moving group. Based on Li Iλ6707.8 measurement, we estimated the age of FR Cnc to be between 10 and 120 Myr. Doppler tomography was applied to create a starspot image of FR Cnc. We optimized the goodness of fit to the deconvolved profiles for axial inclination, equivalent width and v sin i, finding v sin i=46.2 km s-1 and i= 55°. We also generated a synthetic V-band light curve based on Doppler imaging that makes simultaneous use of spectroscopic and photometric data. This synthetic light curve displays the same morphology and amplitude as the observed one. The starspot distribution of FR Cnc is also of interest since it is one of the latest spectral types to have been imaged. No

  9. f(R) gravity and chameleon theories

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Brax, Philippe; Bruck, Carsten van de; Davis, Anne-Christine; Shaw, Douglas J.

    2008-01-01

    We analyze f(R) modifications of Einstein's gravity as dark energy models in the light of their connection with chameleon theories. Formulated as scalar-tensor theories, the f(R) theories imply the existence of a strong coupling of the scalar field to matter. This would violate all experimental gravitational tests on deviations from Newton's law. Fortunately, the existence of a matter dependent mass and a thin-shell effect allows one to alleviate these constraints. The thin-shell condition also implies strong restrictions on the cosmological dynamics of the f(R) theories. As a consequence, we find that the equation of state of dark energy is constrained to be extremely close to -1 in the recent past. We also examine the potential effects of f(R) theories in the context of the Eoet-wash experiments. We show that the requirement of a thin shell for the test bodies is not enough to guarantee a null result on deviations from Newton's law. As long as dark energy accounts for a sizeable fraction of the total energy density of the Universe, the constraints that we deduce also forbid any measurable deviation of the dark energy equation of state from -1. All in all, we find that both cosmological and laboratory tests imply that f(R) models are almost coincident with a ΛCDM model at the background level.

    The level structures of 211 Fr, 212 Fr and 213 Fr have been observed to high spins, approx. 28(h/2π) (and excitation energies approx. 8 MeV) using a variety of gamma-ray spectroscopic techniques. The structure of these nuclides is discussed in terms of couplings of single particle states through empirical shell model calculations. Good agreement with experiment is obtained. In 212 Fr and 213 Fr core-excited configurations are required to explain the properties of the highest states. A number of long lived states were observed in each nucleus some of which decay by by enhanced E3 transitions. The E3 transition strengths are discussed

    The $\\gamma$-rays following the $\\beta^{-}$-decay of $^{227}$Rn have been investigated by means of $\\gamma$-ray singles and $\\gamma\\gamma$-coincidence measurements using an array of 12 Compton-suppressed Ge detectors. The fast timing $\\beta\\gamma\\gamma$(t) method has been used to measure six level lifetimes. Multipolarities of 32 transitions in $^{227}$Fr have been established by measuring conversion electrons with a mini--orange electron spectrometer. Most of the observed transitions have been placed in a level scheme comprising 38 excited states of $^{227}$Fr. The low-lying levels are interpreted in terms of seven rotational bands. The observed E1 strengths for two transitions connecting the K$^{\\pi}$=3/2 bands are consistent with the transitional character of $^{227}$Fr, and confirm the presence of octupole correlations in this nucleus.

    This report explains some results of the multidimensional evaluation on various fast reactor cycle system concepts from an interim report of the 2nd phase of ''Feasibility Study on Commercialized FR Cycle System''. This method is designed to give more objective and more quantitative evaluations to clarify commercialized system candidate concepts. Here we brief current evaluation method from the five viewpoints of safety, economy, environment, resource and non-proliferation, with some trial evaluation results for some cycles consist of promising technologies in reactor, core and fuel, reprocessing and fuel manufacture. Moreover, we describe FR cycle deployment scenarios which describe advantages and disadvantages of the cycles from the viewpoints of uranium resource and radioactive waste based on long-term nuclear material mass flow analyses and advantages of the deployment of FR cycle itself from the viewpoints of the comparison with alternative power supplies as well as cost and benefit.

  13. FRIICAT: A FIRST catalog of FR II radio galaxies

    Science.gov (United States)

    Capetti, A.; Massaro, F.; Baldi, R. D.

    2017-05-01

    Aims: We built a catalog of 122 FR II radio galaxies, called FRIICAT, selected from a published sample obtained by combining observations from the NVSS, FIRST, and SDSS surveys. The catalog includes sources with redshift ≤ 0.15, an edge-brightened radio morphology, and those with at least one of the emission peaks located at radius r larger than 30 kpc from the center of the host. Methods: The radio luminosity at 1.4 GHz of the FRIICAT sources covers the range L1.4 1039.5-1042.5erg s-1. The FRIICAT catalog has 90% of low and 10% of high excitation galaxies (LEGs and HEGs), respectively. The properties of these two classes are significantly different. The FRIICAT LEGs are mostly luminous (-20 ≳ Mr ≳ -24), red early-type galaxies with black hole masses in the range 108 ≲ MBH ≲ 109M⊙; they are essentially indistinguishable from the FR Is belonging to the FRICAT. The HEG FR IIs are associated with optically bluer and mid-IR redder hosts than the LEG FR IIs and to galaxies and black holes that are smaller, on average, by a factor 2. Results: FR IIs have a factor 3 higher average radio luminosity than FR Is. Nonetheless, most ( 90%) of the selected FR IIs have a radio power that is lower, by as much as a factor of 100, than the transition value between FR Is and FR IIs found in the 3C sample. The correspondence between the morphological classification of FR I and FR II and the separation in radio power disappears when including sources selected at low radio flux thresholds, which is in line with previous results. In conclusion, a radio source produced by a low power jet can be edge brightened or edge darkened, and the outcome is not related to differences in the optical properties of the host galaxy.

As a polygonal curve is a complex, this generalizes the regular notion of weak Fr\\'echet distance between curves. We also generalize the algorithm to handle an input of k simplicial complexes. Using this new algorithm we can solve a slew of new problems, from computing a me...

    Moss, Sebastian; Beermann, Christian

    Um sich weiter im internationalen Wettbewerb behaupten zu können, müssen deutsche Unternehmen heute in Schlüsseltechnologien wie die Medizintechnik und die Biotechnologie, zusammenfassend unter dem Begriff der Life Sciences bekannt, investieren. Eine führende Wettbewerbsposition erfordert immer die konsequente Weiterentwicklung von Produkten und Lösungen, um Innovationspotenziale in medizinische Verfahren umzusetzen. Die damit unmittelbar verbundenen hohen Ausgaben für Forschung und Entwicklung stellen ein bedeutendes Problem junger Life Science Unternehmen dar. Vor allem die, verglichen mit nicht-medizinischen Branchen, längeren Forschungs- und Entwicklungszyklen in der Frühphase eines Life Science Unternehmens und die längere Dauer bis zur Profitabilität erhöhen das Risiko der Finanzinvestoren. Die Zeitdauer, um ein medizinisches Produkt bis zur Marktreife zu entwickeln und letztlich auf dem Markt anzubieten, kann aufgrund der notwendigen intensiven Forschung nur unscharf geplant werden und erhöht die Unsicherheit über den Zeitpunkt der ersten Einnahmen. Damit verschärfen sich gerade im Life Science Bereich allgemeine Problematiken von Gründungs- und Wachstumsfinanzierungen wie starke Informationsasymmetrien zwischen Gründer und potentiellen Kapitalgebern. Oftmals ist die Entwicklung einer innovativen Technologie abhängig von einzelnen Personen, von deren Wissen und Engagement die Umsetzung und der Erfolg eines gesamten Produktkonzeptes abhängen.

  3. f(R) gravity cosmology in scalar degree of freedom

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Goswami, Umananda Dev; Deka, Kabita

    2014-01-01

    The models of f(R) gravity belong to an important class of modified gravity models where the late time cosmic accelerated expansion is considered as the manifestation of the large scale modification of the force of gravity. f(R) gravity models can be expressed in terms of a scalar degree of freedom by explicit redefinition of model's variable. Here we report about the study of the features of cosmological parameters and hence the cosmological evolution using the scalar degree of freedom of the f(R) = ξR n gravity model in the Friedmann-Lemaître-Robertson-Walker (FLRW) background

    Full Text Available Helene Albers Studie über Bäuerinnen in Westfalen im früheren 20. Jahrhundert basiert auf Interviews, der Auswertung von zeitgenössischem Quellenmaterial und einer Vielzahl vergessener zeitgenössischer Forschung. Darüber hinaus hat die Verfasserin eine unglaubliche Menge an Literatur der neueren Historie samt mentalitätshistorischen Ablegern bis hin zu soziologischen und agrarsoziologischen Studien durchgearbeitet. Ergebnis dieser immensen Arbeit ist, dass die Bäuerinnen die besonderen Opfer der Umstrukturierung der Landwirtschaft sind.

    Large Eddy Simulation (LES) models permit to resolve relevant scales of turbulent motion, so that these models can capture the inherent unsteadiness of atmospheric turbulence. However, LES models are so far hardly applied for urban air quality studies, in particular chemical transformation of pollutants. In this context, BMBF (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung) funded a joint project, MOSAIK (Modellbasierte Stadtplanung und Anwendung im Klimawandel / Model-based city planning and application in climate change) with the main goal to develop a new highly efficient urban climate model (UCM) that also includes atmospheric chemical processes. The state-of-the-art LES model PALM; Maronga et al, 2015, Geosci. Model Dev., 8, doi:10.5194/gmd-8-2515-2015), has been used as a core model for the new UCM named as PALM-4U. For the gas phase chemistry, a fully coupled 'online' chemistry model has been implemented into PALM. The latest version of the Kinetic PreProcessor (KPP) Version 2.3, has been utilized for the numerical integration of chemical species. Due to the high computational demands of the LES model, compromises in the description of chemical processes are required. Therefore, a reduced chemistry mechanism, which includes only major pollutants namely O3, NO, NO2, CO, a highly simplified VOC chemistry and a small number of products have been implemented. This work shows preliminary results of the advection, and chemical transformation of atmospheric pollutants. Non-cyclic boundaries have been used for inflow and outflow in east-west directions while periodic boundary conditions have been implemented to the south-north lateral boundaries. For practical applications, our approach is to go beyond the simulation of single street canyons to chemical transformation, advection and deposition of air pollutants in the larger urban canopy. Tests of chemistry schemes and initial studies of chemistry-turbulence, transport and transformations are presented.

    Numerous task forces at universities, other research institutions and in industry have been concerned with the development of methods fit to replace animal experiments. A great many useful in-vitro test systems were developed. From 1986 to 1993 the ``In-vitro Systems`` newsletter was published with the support of the federal ministry of science and technology. Its purpose was to intensely promote the concept of in-vitro systems for the benefit of experimental animals among scientists, and to demonstrate to the public the limits of such endeavours. This brochure is a compilation of 141 contributions from all annual volumes, dealing inter alia with research projects for the development of pharmaceuticals, toxicology and quality control, ethic-philosophical considerations, meeting reports, and book reviews. Changes or revisions have not been made; so some of the contributions have been overtaken by more recent developments. (MG) [Deutsch] Viele Arbeitsgruppen an Universitaeten, anderen Forschungseinrichtungen und in der Industrie haben sich der Entwicklung von Ersatzmethoden zu Tierversuchen gewidmet. Dabei wurden viele brauchbare in-vitro-Testsysteme entwickelt. Von 1986-1993 existierte das vom Bundesministerium fuer Forschung und Technologie unterstuetzte Informationsblatt ``In-vitro-Systeme`` mit dem Ziel, in der Wissenschaft intensiv im Sinne des Tierschutzes fuer den Einsatz von in-Vitro-Systemen zu werben und der Oeffentlichkeit die Grenzen dieser Bemuehungen aufzuzeigen. Die vorliegende Broschuere fasst 141 Beitraege aus allen Jahrgaengen zusammen, u.a. zu Forschungsprojekten in der Arzneimittelentwicklung, Toxikologie und Qualitaetskontrolle, ethnisch-philosophische Ueberlegungen, Tagunsberichte, Buchbesprechungen. Da inhaltlich keine Aenderungen oder Ueberarbeitungen stattfinden, sind inzwischen einige Beitraege von der aktuellen Entwicklung ueberholt. (orig.)

    PV-CAD provides PV system planners with a practice-oriented tool for an efficient design of PV facades. Being compatible with the standard programmes of the architects` and electrical engineering sectors it can be used on already existing systems and allows the user to draw on previously acquired knowedge. Its open interfaces permit the integration of further design tools. PV CAD works under Microsoft Windows for which it has the necessary graphic user interface. Its compliance to PC standards opens up a wide range of applications and permits its use also on inexpensive computers. Thanks to its promotion by the Federal Ministry for Education, Science, Research, and Technology under the research project ``Computer programmes for the design of photovoltaic facades`` PV-CAD is available at a moderate price. PV-CAD permits an efficient planning of solar facades and therefore has the potential to stimulate the use of PV on buildings. (orig.) [Deutsch] Mit PV-CAD steht dem Anlagenplaner ein anwendungsorientiertes Werkzeug zur Verfuegung, das eine rationelle Auslegung von PV-Fassaden ermoeglicht. Die Kompatibilitaet zu Standardprogrammen aus dem Architektur- und Elektrosektor erlaubt die Nutzung bereits vorhandener Systeme und damit erworbener Kenntnisse. Offene Schnittstellen gestatten die Einbindung weiterer Entwurfswerkzeuge. PV-CAD arbeitet unter Microsoft-Windows und verfuegt ueber die entsprechende grafische Benutzerschnittstelle. Die Kompatibilitaet zum PC-Standard eroeffnet eine sehr breite Anwenderbasis und ermoeglicht den Einsatz des Programms auch auf preiswerten Rechnern. Aufgrund der Foerderung durch das Bundesministerium fuer Bildung, Wissenschaft, Forschung und Technologie im Rahmen des Forschungsprojekts `Rechnerprogramm zur Auslegung von Photovoltaik-Fassaden` steht PV-CAD preiswert zur Verfuegung. PV-CAD ermoeglicht eine effiziente Planung von Solarfassaden und kann daher dem PV-Einsatz in Gebaeuden weitere Impulse geben. (orig.)

  19. [Big data from clinical routine].

    Over the past 100 years, evidence-based medicine has undergone several fundamental changes. Through the field of physiology, medical doctors were introduced to the natural sciences. Since the late 1940s, randomized and epidemiological studies have come to provide the evidence for medical practice, which led to the emergence of clinical epidemiology as a new field in the medical sciences. Within the past few years, big data has become the driving force behind the vision for having a comprehensive set of health-related data which tracks individual healthcare histories and consequently that of large populations. The aim of this article is to discuss the implications of data-driven medicine, and to examine how it can find a place within clinical care. The EU-wide discussion on the development of data-driven medicine is presented. The following features and suggested actions were identified: harmonizing data formats, data processing and analysis, data exchange, related legal frameworks and ethical challenges. For the effective development of data-driven medicine, pilot projects need to be conducted to allow for open and transparent discussion on the advantages and challenges. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research ("Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung," BMBF) Arthromark project is an important example. Another example is the Medical Informatics Initiative of the BMBF. The digital revolution affects clinic practice. Data can be generated and stored in quantities that are almost unimaginable. It is possible to take advantage of this for development of a learning healthcare system if the principles of medical evidence generation are integrated into innovative IT-infrastructures and processes.

  20. Carbon Dioxide, Hydrographic, and Chemical Data Obtained During the R/V Meteor Cruise 22/5 in the South Atlantic Ocean (WOCE Section A10, December 1992-January 1993)

    This data documentation discusses the procedures and methods used to measure total carbon dioxide (TCO{sub 2}) and total alkalinity (TALK) at hydrographic stations, as well as the underway partial pressure of CO{sub 2} (pCO{sub 2}) during the R/V Meteor Cruise 22/5 in the South Atlantic Ocean (Section A10). Conducted as part of the World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE), the cruise began in Rio de Janeiro on December 27, 1992, and ended after 36 days at sea in Capetown, South Africa, on January 31, 1993. Measurements made along WOCE Section A10 included pressure, temperature, and salinity [measured by conductivity, temperature, and depth (CTD) sensor], bottle salinity, bottle oxygen, phosphate, nitrate, nitrite, silicate, chlorofluorocarbons (CFC-1 1 , CFC-12), TCO{sub 2}, TALK, and underway pCO{sub 2}. The TCO{sub 2} was measured by using two Single-Operator Multiparameter Metabolic Analyzers (SOMMAs) for extracting CO{sub 2} from seawater samples that were coupled to a coulometer for detection of the extracted CO{sub 2}. The overall precision and accuracy of the analyses was {+-} 1.9 {micro}mol/kg. Samples collected for TALK were measured by potentiometric titration; precision was {+-}2.0 {micro}mol/kg. Underway pCO{sub 2} was measured by infrared photometry with a precision of {+-} 2.0 {micro}atm. The work aboard the R/V Meteor was supported by the U.S. Department of Energy under contract DE-AC02-76CHOO016, and the Bundesministerium fir Forschung und Technologies through grants 03F0545A and MPG 099/1.

  1. Effective Dark Matter Halo Catalog in f(R) Gravity.

    We introduce the idea of an effective dark matter halo catalog in f(R) gravity, which is built using the effective density field. Using a suite of high resolution N-body simulations, we find that the dynamical properties of halos, such as the distribution of density, velocity dispersion, specific angular momentum and spin, in the effective catalog of f(R) gravity closely mimic those in the cold dark matter model with a cosmological constant (ΛCDM). Thus, when using effective halos, an f(R) model can be viewed as a ΛCDM model. This effective catalog therefore provides a convenient way for studying the baryonic physics, the galaxy halo occupation distribution and even semianalytical galaxy formation in f(R) cosmologies.

    Based on thermodynamics, we discuss the galactic clustering of expanding Universe by assuming the gravitational interaction through the modified Newton's potential given by f(R) gravity. We compute the corrected N-particle partition function analytically. The corrected partition function leads to more exact equations of state of the system. By assuming that the system follows quasi-equilibrium, we derive the exact distribution function that exhibits the f(R) correction. Moreover, we evaluate the critical temperature and discuss the stability of the system. We observe the effects of correction of f(R) gravity on the power-law behaviour of particle-particle correlation function also. In order to check the feasibility of an f(R) gravity approach to the clustering of galaxies, we compare our results with an observational galaxy cluster catalogue.

    We investigate the corresponding relation between f(R) gravity and holographic dark energy. We introduce a type of energy density from f(R) that has the same role as holographic dark energy. We obtain the differential equation that specifies the evolution of the introduced energy density parameter based on a varying gravitational constant. We discover the relation for the equation of state parameter for low redshifts that contains varying G correction.

    We construct an F(R) gravity theory corresponding to the Weyl invariant two scalar field theory. We investigate whether such F(R) gravity can have the antigravity regions where the Weyl curvature invariant does not diverge at the Big Bang and Big Crunch singularities. It is revealed that the divergence cannot be evaded completely but can be much milder than that in the original Weyl invariant two scalar field theory.

    Full Text Available Die Öffentlichkeitsarbeit der Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin zielt auf eine wirksame Darstellung ihrer bibliothekarischen Weltschätze und ihrer Serviceangebote für die Wissenschaft ab. Sie ruht auf drei Säulen: kulturelle Breitenbildung für wenig bibliotheksaffine Kreise, allgemeine und breit gefächerte Öffentlichkeitsarbeit sowie Aktionen, die sich an spezielle communities in der Wissenschaft richten. Der Beitrag informiert auch über die erfolgreiche Umsetzung dieser Strategie anhand zahlreicher Beispiele. Er zeigt, wie es der Staatsbibliothek in der Hauptstadt Berlin, in der viele Gedächtnisinstitutionen tätig sind, gelingt, öffentlich präsent zu bleiben und ihr Profil zu vermitteln. The public relations work of the Berlin State Library – Prussian Cultural Heritage aims at effectively presenting its globally significant treasures as well as its services for the scientific world. It is based on three pillars: cultural education for the general public, especially for people who are not naturally close to libraries; a general and wide variety of public relations work; and events which target special communities in science. The paper also presents many examples for the effectual implementation of this strategy. It shows how the State Library, in the capital city of Berlin with its many memory institutions, succeeds in keeping a strong presence and communicating its profile to the public.

  3. More than a century of research of the biological effects of ionizing radiation; Mehr als ein Jahrhundert Forschung zu den biologischen Wirkungen ionisierender Strahlung

    2016-07-01

    Already shortly after the discovery of ionising radiation in 1895 it became obvious, that this type of radiation is able to cause severe health effects. In the beginning, deterministic effects were observed, like hair loss and skin burns and somewhat later stochastic effects like leukaemia and skin tumours. Soon studies started why this happens; not only because of protection against the harmful effects of ionising radiation, but also against the background of the therapeutic application of this type of radiation. The studies were initially done in animal experiments, subsequently experiments on the cellular and chromosomal level dominated, until research turned to the molecular level. It is increasingly obvious that the complete organism should be considered, because the complex interactions in the organism are not reflected on the molecular or the cellular level. In the remote future, even the inclusion of the total ecosphere may be necessary for risk considerations.

    The future 14 TeV proton-proton accelerator LHC at CERN serves for the CMS experiment as a high rate source of deep inelastic interactions of quarks and gluons. CMS at the LHC will be one of the "discovery machines" for new particles and theories. The central tracker in the superconducting 4 T-magnet of CMS has to ensure a precise track reconstruction in the space-time. Part I leads to the major tasks of the central tracker for the purpose of preparing the main points of the thesis. In CMS one has to cope with particle fluences of about 10^6cm^-2s^-1 and L1 trigger rates of 100 kHz. System developments have lead to a powerful data acquisition system (DAQ) constructed in VME for emulation of the hardware algorithms in the frontend driver and for research of the properties of CMS microstrip detectors. The experience and the results point to special problems for the operation of the CMS tracker. For most of them solutions will be found which can be emulated in the DAQ or simulated with offline data. If possible ...

    Partitioning and transmutation is focused on the transformation of long-lived radioisotopes in short-lived isotopes. The methodology could be a possibility to reduce the long.-term risk of heat developing nuclear waste in final repositories. During partitioning of spent fuel elements the uranium, plutonium and the minor actinides (neptunium, americium and curium) are separated. The remaining fission and activation products are vitrified and disposed in the final repository. During the partition process radioactive water from decontamination and washing is generated as secondary waste. The transmutation process includes the irradiation of plutonium and the minor actinides with fast neutrons resulting in stable or short-lived isotopes. The separated uranium can be used for fuel element production. The facility for transmutation is being developed and is supposed to be safer than the actual nuclear power plants. The potential risks of the technology are discussed.

    Full Text Available Unter den bei Wechseljahresbeschwerden eingesetzten Phytotherapeutika ist die Traubensilberkerze (Cimicifuga racemosa, Actaea racemosa am besten dokumentiert. Die Monographie des Herbal Medicinal Product Committee der Europäischen Arzneimittelbehörde bestätigt das positive Nutzen-Risiko-Profil von Cimicifugaracemosa-(CR- Arzneimitteln. Voraussetzung ist deren Herstellung unter GMP-Bedingungen mit nachweislicher pharmazeutischer Qualität. In einer aktualisierten Metaanalyse unter Berücksichtigung aller geeigneten randomisierten kontrollierten Studien (RCTs zeigt CR eine signifikant bessere Wirksamkeit bei der Besserung klimakterischer Beschwerden im Vergleich zu Placebo. Ein aktueller Review zur Wirksamkeit und Sicherheit von CR bei Wechseljahresbeschwerden differenziert erstmalig zwischen Extrakten, deren Qualität (nachgewiesen durch den Arzneimittelstatus und Indikation – und wird somit den Besonderheiten der Phytotherapie gerecht. Hierbei erwiesen sich alle in klinischen Studien untersuchten CR-Extrakte als sicher und gut verträglich. Jedoch konnten nur qualitativ hochwertige, offiziell geprüfte, zugelassene CR-Arzneimittel ihre Wirksamkeit und somit ein positives Nutzen-Risiko-Profil nachweisen. Konsistent konfirmatorische Evidenz mit Oxford-Evidenzlevel 1 und höchstem Empfehlungsgrad A erbringt hierbei nur der isopropanolische Cimicifuga-racemosa-Spezialextrakt (iCR, der in vielen Studien an 11.000 Patientinnen untersucht wurde.

    OpenAIRE

    We study the shortcut Fr\\'{e}chet distance, a natural variant of the Fr\\'{e}chet distance, that allows us to take shortcuts from and to any point along one of the curves. The classic Fr\\'echet distance is a bottle-neck distance measure and hence quite sensitive to outliers. The shortcut Fr\\'{e}chet distance allows us to cut across outliers and hence produces significantly more meaningful results when dealing with real world data.

  2. Dirac Quasinormal Modes of Static f(R) de Sitter Black Holes

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ma, Hong

    2018-02-01

    Quasinormal modes (QNMs) for Dirac perturbations of f(R) black holes (BHs) are described in this paper, involving two types of f(R) solution: f(R) (Schwarzschild) BHs and f(R) (Maxwell) BHs. With the finite difference method, the stability of the f(R) black holes (BHs) is analysed and the threshold range of f(R) (Schwarzschild) BHs and f(R) (Maxwell) BHs is defined respectively. The results show that due to the presence of the correction factor R0, the damping rate of Dirac field decreases. Meanwhile, the influence of angular quantum number values |k| on the f(R) BHs is investigated. The results indicate that the QNMs oscillation becomes tenser and damping speed slowly decreases with |k| increasing. Furthermore, under the Dirac perturbation, the stability of f(R) solutions can be reflected in the manner of Dirac QNMs. The relationships between the QNMs and the parameters (|k|, charge Q and mass m) are discussed in massless, and massive cases, by contrast to the classical BHs.

Voraussetzung ist die rechtzeitige Übernahme der Betreuung gefährdeter Patienten durch einen in der speziellen rheumatologischen Diagnostik und Therapie bewanderten Arzt. Dieser muß das gesamte Repertoire der Arthritistherapie (Medikamente, ergotherapeutische und physiotherapeutische Maßnahmen, Patientenaufklärung etc. entsprechend dem „State of the Art“ beherrschen. In den letzten Jahren erfolgte in vielen Ländern die Etablierung von Spezialeinrichtungen für Patienten mit früher Arthritis. Die an diesen Patienten gewonnenen Erkenntnisse deuten darauf hin, daß die „kritische Periode“, innerhalb derer eine chronische Arthritis möglicherweise reversibel ist, bei 6 bis 12 Wochen liegt.

  7. f(R) constant-roll inflation

    The previously introduced class of two-parametric phenomenological inflationary models in general relativity in which the slow-roll assumption is replaced by the more general, constant-roll condition is generalized to the case of f(R) gravity. A simple constant-roll condition is defined in the original Jordan frame, and exact expressions for a scalaron potential in the Einstein frame, for a function f(R) (in the parametric form) and for inflationary dynamics are obtained. The region of the model parameters permitted by the latest observational constraints on the scalar spectral index and the tensor-to-scalar ratio of primordial metric perturbations generated during inflation is determined.

  9. Development of Streptomyces sp. FR-008 as an emerging chassis

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Qian Liu

    2016-09-01

    Full Text Available Microbial-derived natural products are important in both the pharmaceutical industry and academic research. As the metabolic potential of original producer especially Streptomyces is often limited by slow growth rate, complicated cultivation profile, and unfeasible genetic manipulation, so exploring a Streptomyces as a super industrial chassis is valuable and urgent. Streptomyces sp. FR-008 is a fast-growing microorganism and can also produce a considerable amount of macrolide candicidin via modular polyketide synthase. In this study, we evaluated Streptomyces sp. FR-008 as a potential industrial-production chassis. First, PacBio sequencing and transcriptome analyses indicated that the Streptomyces sp. FR-008 genome size is 7.26 Mb, which represents one of the smallest of currently sequenced Streptomyces genomes. In addition, we simplified the conjugation procedure without heat-shock and pre-germination treatments but with high conjugation efficiency, suggesting it is inherently capable of accepting heterologous DNA. In addition, a series of promoters selected from literatures was assessed based on GusA activity in Streptomyces sp. FR-008. Compared with the common used promoter ermE*-p, the strength of these promoters comprise a library with a constitutive range of 60–860%, thus providing the useful regulatory elements for future genetic engineering purpose. In order to minimum the genome, we also target deleted three endogenous polyketide synthase (PKS gene clusters to generate a mutant LQ3. LQ3 is thus an “updated” version of Streptomyces sp. FR-008, producing fewer secondary metabolites profiles than Streptomyces sp. FR-008. We believe this work could facilitate further development of Streptomyces sp. FR-008 for use in biotechnological applications.

  7. Curing singularities in cosmological evolution of F(R) gravity

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Appleby, Stephen A.; Battye, Richard A.; Starobinsky, Alexei A.

    2010-01-01

    We study F(R) modified gravity models which are capable of driving the accelerating epoch of the Universe at the present time whilst not destroying the standard Big Bang and inflationary cosmology. Recent studies have shown that a weak curvature singularity with |R| → ∞ can arise generically in viable F(R) models of present dark energy (DE) signaling an internal incompleteness of these models. In this work we study how this problem is cured by adding a quadratic correction with a sufficiently small coefficient to the F(R) function at large curvatures. At the same time, this correction eliminates two more serious problems of previously constructed viable F(R) DE models: unboundedness of the mass of a scalar particle (scalaron) arising in F(R) gravity and the scalaron overabundance problem. Such carefully constructed models can also yield both an early time inflationary epoch and a late time de Sitter phase with vastly different values of R. The reheating epoch in these combined models of primordial and present dark energy is completely different from that of the old R+R 2 /6M 2 inflationary model, mainly due to the fact that values of the effective gravitational constant at low and intermediate curvatures are different for positive and negative R. This changes the number of e-folds during the observable part of inflation that results in a different value of the primordial power spectrum index

    The question of the supply assurance develops from continuously increasing energy prices as well as struggles of distribution on the international market of raw material. Under this aspect as well as due to the obligation to paragraph 51 power industry acts, a monitoring of the supply assurance is to be accomplished. The contribution under consideration serves as a fundament for the report about the supply assurance in the supply of natural gas. In the first part of this contribution, the world-wide developments and basic conditions are analyzed. The second contribution examines and evaluates the natural gas market in Europe. The third part of this contribution analyzes and evaluates the supply assurance in the supply of natural gas in the Federal Republic of Germany. It results a systematic overview for the situation of the natural gas supply under the aspects of quantity protection and transportation infrastructure at global, European and national level.

    The significance of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) as a dynamic field of innovation is increasing regarding both economic and environmental policy aspects. Already in 2004, the CO{sub 2} emissions caused by the power consumption of ICT in Germany amounted to over 28 Mio. t CO{sub 2}, which is considerably more than the CO{sub 2} emissions of air traffic. This study makes clear that considerable reduction and efficiency potentials exist particularly in the area of data centers. Data centers constitute the greatest power users within the ICT infrastructure and account for approximately 80% of all servers. Their power consumption increases rapidly with the increasing use of Internet and mobile radiotelephone technologies. In 2005, around 1% of the worldwide power consumption was needed for servers, their cooling and their accessories. The power consumption of the approx. 50.000 data centers in Germany totaled to 8.67 TWh in 2006. This is equivalent to the annual power production of three mid-sized coal power plants and is more than 1.5 times the annual power production of the nuclear power plant Brunsbuettel. In 2006 the power consumption of the German data centers caused 5.6 Mio. t CO{sub 2} emissions. Without additional efforts to increase efficiency, the CO{sub 2} emissions caused by data centers will rise by 50% by the year 2010. If however energy efficient technologies and solutions that are available and in use by pioneers, such as increasing the temperature in server rooms from 22 C to 26 C, would be applied widespread, then a total of 21TWh or 13.6 Mio. t CO{sub 2} could be saved in the time period from 2007 to 2010. In doing so, the operators of data centers could together save 2.5 billion Euro on energy costs by the year 2010. For operators of data centers, the future market ''energy efficient data centers'' is therefore of considerable economic importance. The same applies to those supplying hardware, software and planning services for data centers. This study demonstrates that US American companies will continue to dominate the market for energy efficient servers, whereas German and European manufacturers are well-positioned in the area of cooling, climate control and rack technologies and in the area of comprehensive planning services. There is a significant need for action to unlock potentials for reducing environmental impacts by means of energy efficient data centers and to use the opportunities offered by this future market. This includes in particular improving the information and knowledge transfer to the operators of data centers, e.g. through a best practice brochure on ''energy efficient data centers''. Furthermore, an improvement of the database on the energy consumption and energy efficiency of data centers in Germany and Europe is urgently needed. Sector roadmaps would be an important contribution to developing this future market. The initiation of a milestone project ''Factor 10'' for the worldwide most efficient data center and the development of a concept for periodic energy checks or energy audits for data centers would lead to a more resource efficient ICT sector.

    GAMMA-FR code to code validation is conducted and it shows reasonable agreement, however, near wall effect on the effective thermal conductivity needs to be investigated for better results. The GAMMA-FR code was scheduled for validation during the next two years under UCLA-NFRI collaboration. Through this research, GAMMA-FR will be validated with representative fusion experiments and reference accident cases. The GAMMA-FR (Gas Multicomponent Mixture Transient Analysis for Fusion Reactors) code is an in-house system analysis code to predict the thermal hydraulic and chemical reaction phenomena expected to occur during the thermo-fluid transients in a nuclear fusion system. A safety analysis of the Korea TBS (Test Blanket System) for ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) is underway using this code. This paper describes validation strategy of GAMMA-FR and current status of the validation study with respect to 'TES pipe rupture accident of ITER TBM'

  14. Wormhole geometry and Noether symmetry in f(R) gravity

    Science.gov (United States)

    Sharif, M.; Nawazish, Iqra

    2018-02-01

    This paper investigates the geometry of static traversable wormhole through Noether symmetry approach in f(R) gravity. We take perfect fluid distribution and formulate symmetry generators with associated conserved quantities corresponding to general form, power-law and exponential f(R) models. In each case, we evaluate wormhole solutions using constant and variable red-shift functions. We analyze the behavior of shape function, viability of constructed f(R) model and stability of wormhole solutions graphically. The physical existence of wormhole solutions can be examined through null/weak energy conditions of perfect fluid and null energy condition of the effective energy-momentum tensor. The graphical interpretation of constructed wormhole solutions ensures the existence of physically viable and traversable wormholes for all models. It is concluded that the constructed wormholes are found to be stable in most of the cases.

    Inflation in the framework of f(R) modified gravity is revisited. We study the conditions that f(R) should satisfy in order to lead to a viable inflationary model in the original form and in the Einstein frame. Based on these criteria we propose a new logarithmic model as a potential candidate for f(R) theories aiming to describe inflation consistent with observations from Planck satellite (2015). The model predicts scalar spectral index 0.9615

    A simple and rapid screen was performed for microorganisms producing cyclic lipopeptide acylase, an enzyme that deacylates the acyl side chain of FR901379 to yield a cyclic peptide, FR179642, which is an important intermediate in producing micafungin. Among approximately 3800 newly isolated strains from soil samples, 5 microorganisms expressing high acylase activity were selected and classified, 3 as Streptomyces spp. and 2 as filamentous fungi. This is the first time that these strains have been identified as cyclic lipopeptide acylase producers. Both fungi and streptomycetes showed differing optimum pH and temperature profiles for acylase activity.

  19. Necessary conditions for having wormholes in f(R) gravity

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mazharimousavi, S. Habib; Halilsoy, M.

    2016-11-01

    For a generic f(R) which admits a polynomial expansion, we find the near-throat wormhole solution. Necessary conditions for the existence of wormholes in such f(R) theories are derived for both zero and nonzero matter sources. For vanishing external sources, we show that the energy conditions are violated. A particular choice of energy-momentum reveals that the wormhole geometry satisfies the weak energy condition (WEC). For a range of parameters, even the strong energy condition (SEC) is shown to be satisfied.

    All known algorithms for the Fréchet distance between curves proceed in two steps: first, they construct an efficient oracle for the decision version; second, they use this oracle to find the optimum from a finite set of critical values. We present a novel approach that avoids the detour through the decision version. This gives the first quadratic time algorithm for the Fréchet distance between polygonal curves in (Formula presented.) under polyhedral distance functions (e.g., (Formula presen...

    We study the entanglement entropy of a general region in a theory of induced gravity using holographic calculations. In particular we use holographic entanglement entropy prescription of Ryu-Takayanagi in the context of the Randall-Sundrum 2 model while considering general f(R) gravity in the bulk. Showing the leading term is given by the usual Bekenstein-Hawking formula, we confirm the conjecture by Bianchi and Myers for this theory. Moreover, we calculate the first subleading term to entanglement entropy and show they agree with the Wald entropy up to extrinsic curvature terms.

    A 6.5-Fr guiding catheter (Parent Plus 45, Medikit, Tokyo, Japan), composed of a hydrophilic sheathless guiding catheter and a dilator, has recently been developed for the treatment of renal artery stenosis. Because of its unique sheathless configuration, its outer diameter is comparable to that of a conventional 4.5-Fr introducer sheath, with the inner diameter being close in size to a 6.5-Fr guiding catheter. These features allow this sheathless system to be used as the sole guiding catheter while the arterial damage at the puncture site remains equivalent to that of a 4.5-Fr introducer sheath. We thus call this novel sheathless guiding catheter a virtual 4.5-Fr system. To demonstrate the potential of this virtual 4.5-Fr system, we report a case of renal artery stenosis successfully treated via the transradial route. This virtual 4.5-Fr system may become a viable alternative to conventional guiding catheters, and provide a favorable impact upon vascular access complications and patient morbidity.

  4. Earthquakes and aseismatic design standard for nuclear power stations in F.R. Germany

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Ide, Akira

    1976-01-01

    Brief history of the earthquakes in F.R. Germany for the period from 1000 to 1969 is reviewed, and comparison of the aseismatic design of nuclear power stations between F.R. Germany and Japan is made. Earthquakes of intensity 7 (maximum acceleration value of 70 to 220 gal) and 8 (that of 150 to 300 gal) could be expected to occur in F.R. Germany, according to European seismic committee. The definitions of safety earthquake (Sicherheitserdbeben) and design earthquake (Auslegungserdbeben) are compared with the Japanese terms, S-2 (maximum possible earthquake giving the strongest vibration to site base) and S-1 (maximum probable earthquake giving the strongest vibration to site base). The total area of F.R. Germany is classified into four zones according to dangerousness. Aseismatic design in F.R. Germany is classified into two classes, whereas that in Japan into three or four classes. In F.R. Germany, either dynamic analysis, simple analysis, or omission of analysis is employed. F.R. Germany employs the waves of E1-centro, Taft, etc. of USA as standard, referring to U.S.N.R.C. 1.60 and Housner's equation. The attenuation coefficient and the allowable stress are also compared. A power plant to be exported to Iran is designed at SE of 500 gal and AE of 250 gal, which are approximately equal to the maximum earthquake acceleration for design in Japan. (Iwakiri, K.)

  6. Jaywalking your Dog - Computing the Fr\\'echet Distance with Shortcuts

    OpenAIRE

    Driemel, Anne; Har-Peled, Sariel

    2011-01-01

    The similarity of two polygonal curves can be measured using the Fr\\'echet distance. We introduce the notion of a more robust Fr\\'echet distance, where one is allowed to shortcut between vertices of one of the curves. This is a natural approach for handling noise, in particular batched outliers. We compute a (3+\\eps)-approximation to the minimum Fr\\'echet distance over all possible such shortcuts, in near linear time, if the curve is c-packed and the number of shortcuts is either small or unb...

  7. Successful Intravascular Ultrasound-Guided Transradial Coronary Intervention with a 4Fr Guiding Catheter.

    Minimizing the catheter size can reduce vascular access complications and contrast dye usage in coronary angiography. The small diameter of the 4Fr guiding catheter has limited the use of several angioplasty devices such as intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) in the past. However, the combination of a novel IVUS catheter and a 0.010 guidewire makes it possible to perform IVUS-guided percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with a 4Fr guiding catheter. We herein report the case of a 51-year-old man with silent myocardial ischemia who underwent IVUS-guided transradial PCI with a 4Fr guiding catheter.

  9. Reconstructing an f(R) model from holographic dark energy: using the observational evidence

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Saaidi, Kh; Aghamohammadi, A

    2012-01-01

    We investigate the correspondence relation between f(R) gravity and an interacting holographic dark energy (HDE). By obtaining the conditions needed for some observational evidence such as positive acceleration expansion of the Universe, crossing the phantom divide line and validity of the thermodynamics second law in an interacting HDE model and corresponding it with the f(R) model of gravity, we find a viable f(R) model that can explain the present Universe. We also obtain the explicit evolutionary forms of the corresponding scalar field, potential and scale factor of the Universe. (paper)

  13. Gravitational collapse of null dust in f(R) gravity

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ghosh, Sushant G.; Maharaj, Sunil D.

    2012-06-01

    We find exact nonstatic null-dust solutions in metric f(R) gravity, imposed by the constant scalar curvature, which describes the gravitational collapse of null dust in (anti-)de Sitter [(A)dS] higher-dimensional (HD) background. The situation where a null dust injects into the initially HD-(A)dS spacetime leads to a naked singularity from gravitational collapse in HD-f(R) gravity, violating cosmic censorship conjecture. Further, we find exact null-dust solutions to constant curvature imposed non-Abelian f(R) Yang-Mills gauge theory by employing the Wu-Yang ansatz in four dimensions. This generates an identical geometry as one would expect for charge null dust in the Abelian f(R) Maxwell theory, i.e., precisely the charged-Vaidya-(A)dS corresponding to Yang-Mills gauge charge. The four-dimensional charged null-dust solutions in the f(R) Maxwell theory are also, separately, derived.
