    Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC) are energy conversion systems of great interest for industrial applications because they present a high efficiency for energy generation and several advantages for the environment. In this work, perovskite type oxides La{sub 085}Sr{sub 0,15}MnO{sub 3}, La{sub 0,7} Sr{sub 0,3}MnO{sub 3}, La{sub 0,6}Sr{sub 0,4}MnO{sub 3}, La{sub 0,85}Sr{sub 0,15}CoO{sub 3}, La{sub 0,7}Sr{sub 0,3}CoO{sub 3}, La{sub 0,6}Sr{sub 0,4}CoO{sub 3}, La{sub 0.6}Sr{sub 0,4}Fe{sub 0,8}Co{sub 0,2}O{sub 3} e La{sub 0.6}Sr{sub 0,4}Fe{sub 0,4}Co{sub 0,6}O{sub 3} were prepared by a polymeric method with the purpose of using them as cathodes in SOFCs. The electrochemical cell was mounted utilizing YSZ (ZrO{sub 2} - 8 mol%Y{sub 2}O{sub 3}) disks as electrolyte, where a paste containing Pt was calcined onto one face while the other one was covered with the oxide materials synthesized ('screen printing'). The oxide materials prepared were characterized by X-ray diffraction, transmission electronic microscopy and thermogravimetry. The oxygen reduction reaction was studied by taking polarization curves in oxygen and/or air (800 deg C a 950 deg C). The best performance was obtained for 15 {mu}m thickness electrodes La{sub 0.6}Sr{sub 0,4}MnO{sub 3} and La{sub 0.6}Sr{sub 0,4}MnO{sub 3} with addition of dispersed Pt. (author)

    This study is focused on developing polymer poly electrolytes for fuel cell PEM and aims to evaluate the efficiency of sulfonated polyindene as A polymer electrolyte in blends with poly (vinyl alcohol) (PVA). For this, polyindene synthesized in the lab was functionalized with sulfonic groups (-SO{sub 3}H), using as sulfonation agent acetyl sulfate in 1,2-dichloroethane. The membranes of sulfonated polyindene (SPInd) and PVA were prepared in aqueous medium, using glutaraldehyde as a PVA cross linker. The membranes SPInd/PVA were evaluated on the content of sulfonic groups, ion exchange capacity (IEC), degree of swelling in water and thermal stability (TGA). Electrochemical impedance analysis was used for ionic conductivity evaluation and DMA for the mechanical strength of the membranes. Preliminary results show that the membranes showed ion exchange capacity about 3.2 m equiv/g and degree of swelling in water of 550%. (author)

    Solid oxide fuel cell is a high efficient device hence it plays a very important role in the hydrogen economy. However, the cell operation temperature must be lower than 800 deg C, what is attainable for thin Yttria stabilized zirconia (YSZ) electrolytes. The tape casting process is the most used technique because it allows a very fine tuning of the tape thickness. In this work it were investigated the processing conditions for obtaining electrolyte-anode (YSZ/ YSZ-NiO) bilayers with no lamination after the sintering process. (author)

    The global warmness and the necessity to obtain clean energy from alternative methods than petroleum raises the importance of developing cleaner and more efficient systems of energy generation, among then, the solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC). Cubic stabilized zirconia (CSZ) has been the most studied material as electrolyte in SOFC, due to its ionic conductivity and great stability at operation conditions. However, its low fracture toughness difficulties its application as a thin layer, what could lead to an improvement of cell efficiency. In this sense, the alumina addition in CSZ forms a composite, which can shift its mechanical properties, without compromising its electrical properties. In this work, coprecipitation synthesis route and ceramic processing of zirconia-alumina composites were studied, in order to establish optimum conditions to attain high density, homogeneous microstructure, and better mechanical properties than CSZ, without compromising ionic conductivity. For this purpose, composites containing up to 40 wt % of alumina, in a 9 mol % yttria-stabilized zirconia (9Y-CSZ) matrix were evaluated. In order to optimize the synthesis of the composites, a preliminary study of powder obtaining and processing were carried out, at compositions containing 20 wt % of alumina, in 9Y-CSZ. The ceramic powders were characterized by helium picnometry, X-ray diffraction, scanning electronic microscopy, transmission electronic microscopy, thermogravimetry, differential scanning calorimetry, granulometry by laser diffraction and gas adsorption (BET). The characterization of sinterized compacts were performed by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, optical microscopy, density measurements, Vickers indentation and impedance spectroscopy. The obtained results show that the alumina addition, in the 9Y-CSZ matrix powders, raises the specific surface area, promotes deagglomeration of powders and elevates the oxides crystallization temperature, requiring higher energetic thermal treatments to attain high densities. In relation to the sintered products, it was confirmed the excellent homogeneity and crystallinity of microstructure provided by the chosen route, the restriction of grain growth by alumina addition, raise of hardness and fracture toughness, and higher ionic conductivity, even tough a lower bulk conductivity. These results indicate that the addition of 5 wt % alumina in CSZ matrix allows the application of this material as solid oxide fuel cell electrolytes, due to its better fracture toughness and ionic conductivity, compared to yttria-stabilized cubic zirconia ceramics.

    This work was focused on the analysis of transport, thermomechanical and electrochemical properties of a series of perovskite-like oxide materials and composites for potential applications as anodes of intermediate-temperature solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) with lanthanum gallate and silicate solid electrolytes. The primary attention was centered on A(Mn,Nb)O3-delta (A = Sr, Ca) and (La,Sr)(Mn,Ti)O3-based systems, lanthanum chromite substituted with acceptor-type and variable-valence cations, and various Ni-containing cermets. Emphasis was given to phase stability of the materials, their crystal structure, microstructure of porous electrode layers and dense ceramics, electronic conductivity, Seebeck coefficient, oxygen permeability, thermal and chemical induced expansion, and anodic overpotentials of the electrodes deposited onto (La,Sr)(Ga,Mg)O3- and La10(Si,Al)6O27-based electrolyte membranes. In selected cases, roles of oxygen diffusivity, states of the transition metal cations relevant for the electronic transport, catalytically active additives and doped ceria protective interlayers introduced in the model electrochemical cells were assessed. The correlations between transport properties of the electrode materials and electrochemical behavior of porous electrodes showed that the principal factors governing anode performance include, in particular, electronic conduction of the anode compositions and cation interdiffusion between the electrodes and solid electrolytes. The latter is critically important for the silicatebased electrolyte membranes, leading to substantially worse anode properties compared to the electrochemical cells with lanthanum gallate solid electrolyte. The results made it possible to select several anode compositions exhibiting lower area-specific electrode resistivity compared to known analogues, such as (La,Sr)(Cr,Mn)O3-delta.

    Reducing the operating temperature of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) for the range between 500 and 700°C is one of the challenges which more has aroused the interest of research in SOFC in recent years. In this context, the bilayer anode/electrolyte composed of a porous support based on Ni-doped ceria (anode) and a ceria doped gadolinia (CGO) electrolyte, presents itself as one of the half-cell configurations of the most interest towards the production of electricity in the operating logic of a SOFC. In this work, CGO films were successfully prepared on NiO-CGO substrates using the resources of the screen-printing technique. The bi-layers were co-sintered between 1350 and 1450 ° C for 4 h and then characterized by scanning electron microscopy and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS). The results showed good adhesion at the film/substrate interface and no cracks in the films. (author)

    PEMFC systems are capable of generating electricity with high efficiency and low or no emissions, but durability and cost issues prevent its large commercialization. In this work MEA with palladium based catalysts were developed, Pd/C, Pt/C and alloys PdPt/C catalysts with different ratios between metals and carbon were synthesized and characterized. A study of the ratio between catalyst and Nafion Ionomer for formation of high performance triple-phase reaction was carried out, a mathematical model to implement this adjustment to catalysts with different relations between metal and support taking into account the volumetric aspects of the catalyst layer was developed and then a study of the catalyst layer thickness was performed. X-ray diffraction, Transmission and Scanning Electron Microscopy, X-ray Energy Dispersive, Gas Pycnometry, Mercury Intrusion Porosimetry, Gas adsorption according to the BET and BJH equations, and Thermo Gravimetric Analysis techniques were used for characterization and particle size, specific surface areas and lattice parameters determinations were also carried out. All catalysts were used on MEAs preparation and evaluated in 5 cm{sup 2} single cell from 25 to 100 °C at 1 atm and the best composition was also evaluated at 3 atm. In the study of metals for reactions, to reduce the platinum applied to the electrodes without performance losses, Pd/C and PdPt/C 1:1 were selected for anodes and cathodes, respectively. The developed MEA structure used 0,25 mgPt.cm{sup -2}, showing power densities up to 550 mW.cm{sup -2} and power of 2.2 kW{sub net} per gram of platinum. The estimated costs showed that there was a reduction of up to 64.5 %, compared to the MEA structures previously known. Depending on the temperature and operating pressure, values from US$ 1,475.30 to prepare MEAs for each installed kilowatt were obtained. Taking into account recent studies, it was concluded that the cost of the developed MEA is compatible with PEMFC stationary application. (author)

    In this thesis tree patterns of superficial breakdown in polymeric insulator of Silicon Rubber are generated. Experimental arrangement rod-rod was used on the basis of norm ASTM D 2303-85. Pollution levels on the basis of norm IEC 507 were also used. The experimental values of Fractal Dimension for each case of pollution were reported. A self similar method called Box Counting for the fractal dimension calculus and for the self affine methods an R/S and Variogram were used. According to the results, it was concluded that the tree patterns of superficial electric breakdown in Silicon Rubber is self similar and its value does not depend on the degree of pollution, that is equivalent to the concentration of salt for liter of water or to the Equivalent Salt Deposition (ESDD), in the surface of an insulator.

    The current handling, treatment and final disposition of the hospital solid waste in Costa Rica are considered inadequate or at least insufficient. This situation represents a serious danger for the population's health and the environment, because they are exposed to infectious agents, toxic substances and even radioactive products that are generated among the residuals of the centers of health. This work, alternatives propose for the treatment and adequate final disposition of the solid waste produced in the hospitals of the country. They take into consideration the characteristics that present these residuals, the advantages and disadvantages of each one of the existent techniques and the technical and economic possibilities of the country. For this purpose, in first instance, a revision about the properties, the quality and the quantity of the solid waste produced by the national hospital centers was carried out. Also, a diagnostic of the current situation of the treatment and final disposition of these residuals in some of the most important hospitals of the country, as well as of the possibilities of physical space with that they count on was carried out. Then, the existent different treatment techniques and final disposition for the solid waste that comes from the centers of health are described, as well as their advantages and disadvantages and a comparative analysis of the same ones is carried out. The objective is completed, since alternatives of treatment and final disposition that are considered appropriate for this type of residuals are planned. Nevertheless, in the future, more detailed investigations and studies of feasibility, with the purpose of developing handling programs and elimination of the solid waste for each one of the hospital centers in Costa Rica should be carried out.

    As solid radioactive waste varies in form, dimensions and volume, the Atomic Energy Commission first of all reduces the volume by breaking up and compressing the waste. Since the temporary storage of such waste is always attended by the risk of contamination, an efficient packing system has been devised and adopted. This consists of embedding the waste in the heart of a specially-designed block of concrete possessing the following characteristics: Great strength Maximum insolubility Resistance to corrosion Maximum imperviousness Protection against radiation. It is thus quite safe to store these blocks with a view to final dumping.

    Catalytic processes induced by radiation in the presence of non-metallic solids are discussed, attention being given exclusively to the effects associated with modification of the steady state concentration of charge carriers. The effect of such modification on the kinetics and equilibrium of heterogeneous reactions is quantitatively estimated within the framework of the electronic theory of catalysis, due regard being paid to the electronic characteristics of the surface of the solid. In conclusion, the relationship between these phenomena, catalyst activation and transfer of energy, as previously described, is discussed.

    A theoretical analysis is presented for the problem of cutting transport in a two-region, slurry-flow system in horizontal pipes, with a stationary bed of drill cuttings as a porous medium (w-region) below a two-phase dispersed flow (n-region). Volume averaging was applied to derive a rigorous mathematical model where each variable is precisely defined. The model includes volume-averaged transport equations for both the two-phase dispersed flow and the porous-medium regions, and terms from a macroscopic forces balance. The solution of the two-region model allowed evaluation of the behavior of the pressure gradient as a function of velocity, total volume fraction of cuttings, and the relationship between the height of the stationary bed and pipe diameter. It is based on a backward, finite-difference explicit scheme. The simulated physical system is a pipe diameter. It is based on a backward, finite-difference explicit scheme. The simulated physical system is a pipe of 4.135 m in horizontal length and 0.0508 m in diameter. A one dimensional, mesh-centered grid is used, consisting of 10 nodes. The numerical results were compared with experimental data on slurry flows and a good agreement was found.

    The accurate assessment of surface water erosion in watershed is aided by the indications provided by the yield of fluvial solids and in particular by suspended sediment yield. Confining itself to a research study of hydrological and erosion phenomena present at the mountain watershed of the Sillaro Torrent, a monitoring station of water flow and sediment yield was set up at the enclosed end of the mountain basin. This paper contains the presentation and evaluation of the statistics revealed during the course of 1998. The fluctuation of sediment yield appears to be connected to the variation of water flow, the annual soil loss has been assessed at 54446 t, equal to an average soil loss over the entire basin of 0.26 mm. [Italian] La stima diretta dell'erosione idrica superficiale a scala di bacino idrografico puo' avvalersi delle indicazioni fornite dal trasporto solido fluviale, ed in particolare dal trasporto in sospensione. Nell'ambito di una ricerca volta allo studio dei fenomeni idrologici ed erosivi a carico del bacino montano del T. Sillaro (prov. BO), e' stata realizzata, presso la sezione di chiusa del bacino, una stazione di misura per il monitoraggio dei deflussi liquidi e della torbida. Nella presente nota viene fornita la descrizione e la valutazione dei dati rilevati nel corso del 1998. Le fluttuazioni dei valori di trasporto torbido appaiono legate alle variazioni di portata, mentre il deflusso torbido annuo per il 1998 e' stato valutato in 54.446, pari ad una perdita annua media di suolo sull'intero bacino di 0.26 mm.

    Owing to the current interest in the reduction of environmental pollution, several researchers are seeking renewable sources of energy which can at least partially replace combustibles derived from petroleum. Diesel oil is the combustible that most seriously pollutes the environment and is thus the biodiesel that is being considered as a fuel which can be replaced by a renewable combustible; this can possibly be used in diesel engines without any modifications. However, certain problems have to be overcome with regard to the temperature at which the biodiesel should be stored and used, since there is a tendency for biodiesel to solidify at low temperatures. This suggests that there is a need for the use of anti-freeze additives. This work behind the main focus additives with only 25 ppm, were able to reduce the pour point of fuel, achieving significant results, for example, the additive M14A18 lowered the pour point (PP) of B20 to -20 degree C, showing that the use of increasing amounts of biodiesel to diesel can aggregate. The main focus of work behind the development of additives that with only 25 ppm, were able to reduce the pour point of fuel, producing significant results such as those obtained with the use of additive M14A18 which lowered the pour point of the B20 to -20 degree C, showing the possibility of using increasing amounts of biodiesel added to diesel.

    This paper provides a dose assessment of the critic group from the near surface facility for solid and liquid waste, located at Ezeiza Atomic Center in Argentina (Ezeiza Radioactive Waste Management Area-AGE). The calculations were made using several approaches about source term. The activities for each radionuclide and facility were taken from the National Atomic Energy Commission's Inventory that corresponds to the first trimester of 2005. The radioactive decay of each radionuclide was considered. The work was performed in two steps. In the first step, using the Nuclide Dispersion in Phreatic Aquifer Model (DRAF), the dispersion of the contaminants into the phreatic aquifer until the discharge point at a superficial water course was considered. In the second step, the Consequences of Releases to the Environment Assessment Methodology Program (PC CREAM) was used for the study of radionuclides dispersion in superficial water course and dose calculations. The results from this paper show that, for every studied radionuclide, the doses involved are significantly lower than the values established by current regulations. On the other hand, those results put in evidence the utility of simple models in estimating the order of magnitude of expected concentrations and doses. It is important to highlight that the obtained results can be used only in the context of the suppositions that were made.

    relacionados con su operacion. El material de electrodo con mayor electroactividad es el Pt, pero debido a su costo elevado se han tenido que buscar electrocatalizadores alternativos con un balance entre costo y actividad. Uno de los materiales que mas se ha utilizado es el Niquel en conjunto con algunas de sus aleaciones. Este material ha demostrado un buen desempeno utilizando bajos sobrepotenciales en reacciones tradicionales como las reacciones de evolucion de hidrogeno (REH) y oxigeno (REO), asi como una alta resistencia a la corrosion y bajo costo. Particularmente, aleaciones binarias y ternarias han demostrado un incremento importante en la actividad de la REH al compararla con los materiales en su estado puro o masivo. Por esta razon, en la busqueda de nuevas alternativas con una aceptable eficiencia al compararla con los materiales a bajo costo, en este trabajo se obtuvieron materiales Ni-TR (TR = La, Ce) por el metodo de reaccion de estado solido, a partir de: a) acetilacetonatos metalicos y b) polvos metalicos. Estos materiales se sinterizaron durante 3 h a diferentes temperaturas (795 o 920 , 1000 y 1200 grados centigrados) a fin de evaluar su efecto en el desempeno electroquimico de los electrocatalizadores. La caracterizacion estructural y morfologica de materiales se realizo por las tecnicas de DRX y MEB, respectivamente. Asimismo, el desempeno electroquimico de los materiales de electrodo se evaluo en la REH utilizando voltametria ciclica (VC) y curvas potenciodinamicas. Los resultados obtenidos muestran que a bajas temperaturas se obtiene una mezcla de oxidos (NiO, CeO{sub 2} y LaNiO{sub 3}); sin embargo a medida que la temperatura de sinterizado se incrementa, se alcanza la formacion de las aleaciones NiO-CeO{sub 2} y NiO-LaNiO{sub 3}, respectivamente. Al mismo tiempo se observo una clara dependencia de la actividad electrocatalitica con la fuente obtencion de estos materiales (Ni-TR).

    A review is made of the regulations in the field of solid wastes with the aim of providing a useful working tool for those entities that generate or manage some type of waste. The coming into force of the current Spanish Wastes Law establishes common regulations for all wastes, substituting all previous Municipal Waste and Toxic and Dangerous Waste Laws. For reasons of greater practical applicability, we have preferred in this paper to classify wastes on the basis of their characteristics. The regulations are thus presented in a series of sections: municipal waste, dangerous wastes, sewage plant sludge, cattle waste and specific risk materials, highlighting in each case those areas of the regulations that are of greater interest for the producers and managers of solid wastes.

    Resveratrol (3, 4', 5-trihydroxystilbene) is a polyphenolic produced by a wide variety of plants in response to injury and found predominantly in grape skins. This active ingredient has been shown to possess benefits for the health, such as the antioxidant capacity which is related to the prevention of several types of cancer and skin aging. However, the oral bioavailability of resveratrol is poor and makes its topical application interesting. The purpose of this study was to immobilize resveratrol in polymeric hydrogels to obtain a release device for topical use. The polymeric matrices composed of poli(N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone) (PVP), poly(ethyleneglycol) (PEG) and agar or PVP and glycerol irradiated at 20 kGy dose were physical-chemically characterized by gel fraction and swelling tests and its preliminary biocompatibility by in vitro test of cytotoxicity using the technique of neutral red uptake. Due to low solubility of resveratrol in water, the addition of 2% ethanol to the matrices was verified. All matrices showed a high crosslinking degree, capacity of swelling and the preliminary cytotoxicity test showed nontoxicity effect. The devices were obtained by resveratrol immobilization in polymeric matrices, carried out in a one-or-two-steps process, that is, before or after irradiation, respectively. The one step resveratrol devices were characterized by gel fraction, swelling tests and preliminary biocompatibility, and their properties were maintained even after the resveratrol incorporation. The devices containing 0,05% of resveratrol obtained by one-step process and 0,1% of resveratrol obtained by two-steps process were submitted to the release test during 24 h. Resveratrol quantification was done by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The results obtained in the kinetics of release showed that only the devices obtained by two-step process release the resveratrol, which demonstrate antioxidant capacity after the release. (author)

    The Polymeric Precursor Method is able for obtaining several oxide material types with high surface area even obtained in particle form. Several MO{sub 2} oxide types such as titanium, silicon and zirconium ones can be obtained by this methodology. In this work, the synthesis of silicon oxide was monitored by thermal analysis, XRD and surface area analysis in order to demonstrate the influence of the several synthesis and calcining parameters. Surface area values as higher as 370m2/g and increasing in the micropore volume nm were obtained when the material was synthesized by using ethylene glycol as polymerizing agent. XRD analysis showed that the material is amorphous when calcinated at 600°C in despite of the time of calcining, but the material morphology is strongly influenced by the polymeric resin composition. Using Glycerol as polymerizing agent, the pore size increase and the surface area goes down with the increasing in decomposition time, when compared to ethylene glycol. (author)

    Bentonite is an important type of industrial clays due to its rheological properties or accession that are dependent on its high hydrophilicity. This clay has the capability of being modified with organic compounds by treatment with ammonium quaternary salts. After the clay treatment with these salts it presents a high degree of swelling property in organic liquids. Due to this swelling characteristics, the bentonite can be used in dispersions of organic liquids viscous and thixotropic. Another focus of interest this clay is in industry and academia because of its potential use in the adsorption of toxic substances and as fillers in nanocomposites clay / polymer. The objective of this study is to characterize a Cuban calcium bentonite modified with sodium dodecyl sulfate. The clay was characterized by X-ray diffraction, particle size analysis by laser diffraction and scanning electron microscopy. (author)

    This paper presents the electrolyte influence on deposition and dissolution processes of Cu nanoparticles on boron doped diamond electrodes (DDB). Morphological, structural and electrochemical analysis showed BDD films with good reproducibility, quality and reversible in a specific redox system. Electrodeposition of Cu nanoparticles on DDB electrodes in three different solutions was influenced by pH and ionic strength of the electrolytic medium. Analyzing the process as function of the scan rate, it was verified a better efficiency in 0,5 mol L{sup -1} Na{sub 2}SO{sub 4} solution. Under the influence of the pH and ionic strength, Cu nanoparticles on DDB may be obtained with different morphologies and it was important for defining the desired properties. (author)

    Passive solid-state detectors still dominate the personal dosimetry field. This article provides state of the art in this field and summarizes the most recent works presented on TL, OSL and RPL during the 17th International Conference on Solid State Dosimetry held in Recife in September 2013. The Article contains in particular the techniques Thermoluminescence (TL), Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL), radio photoluminescence (RPL). Thermoluminescence has the biggest advantage of the wide availability of commercial materials for dosimetry, and the nature tissue-equivalent of several of these materials. The limitation of the TL dosimetry presents fading luminance signal and the need for high temperatures to obtain the signal. The Optically Stimulated Luminescence has the advantages of high sensitivity, the possibility of multiple reading, while its limit is the need to use response compensating filters in addition to the high cost of equipment and dosimeters still restricted very few options trading . The radio photoluminescence has a reading that is completely non-destructive, but their dosimeters present lack of tissue-equivalent and a high cost. Presents the details of the techniques and the advantages and limitations of each of these will be discussed.

    Fuel cells allow the energy production without the thermodynamic restriction of the conversion of heat into work. Among their various types, the solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC), operating at high temperatures, allow the methane conversion into electricity directly on the anode. The main element of the SOFC is the structure A/E/C: anode/electrolyte/cathode, all sintered at high temperature as resistant ceramic materials. Dense electrolyte (YSZ: zirconia stabilized for Yttria) separates the anode (Ni+Co/YSZ: cobalt promoted nickel, supported on YSZ) and cathode (LSM: strontium-doped lanthanum manganite), both with porosity obtained by graphite addition. To obtain suitable A/E/C pellets, the layer sintering with appropriate mechanical and textural characteristics is essential, requiring excellent electric junctions between them. The cell performance has been evaluated between 850 and 950 degree C, using hydrogen or methane fuel; the tension and current for different resistance values in the electrical circuit have been measured. The cobalt addition to the cell anode significantly increased its activity for the reform reaction. The beneficial effect was probably due to the easier nickel reduction in cobalt presence. This work had the objectives of developing and evaluating electro-catalysts, as well as the solid oxide fuel cells using these catalysts as anode. Five SOFC models (SOFC 1 to SOFC 5) are described; all of them were developed aiming at improving the preparation of the anode/electrolyte/cathode structure (A/E/C). (author)

    In Estrela, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, an improved separation system for the municipal solid wastes was implemented. The objective is to enhance the performance of the composting process of the solid wastes. In the original separation system, the fractions corresponding to organic matter, recyclable materials and the light-weight fraction (destined to sanitary landfill) were obtained, where the organic fraction reached a 70%. This fraction was destined to a composting process which after 80 days of processing was still in the thermophilic stage and had to be later stabilized through a worm composting process. In order to improve this situation, a modified system was proposed and implemented. In this way, four fractions were obtained during the separation process: a light fraction destined to sanitary land filling, a recyclable materials fraction and two organic fractions.

    , dans ce modele simple, le recuit devrait etre fonction de l'etat (et du traitement prealable) du cristal, mais devrait se comporter de la meme facon pour differents isotopes. A l'appui de ces arguments, on peut citer une serie d'experiences pour lesquelles KIO{sub 3} solide a ete active au moyen de neutrons thermiques et de neutrons rapides. Avec des neutrons rapides, la retention de {sup 128}I a ete notablement plus elevee que celle de {sup 126}I, mais la retention de {sup 128}I obtenue a l'aide de neutrons thermiques est encore superieure a celle obtenue au moyen de neutrons rapides. Ces resultats montrent qu'independamment de la decroissance, l'energie de recul peut aussi etre un facteur dont depend la retention. Le recuit de {sup 128}I et celui de {sup 126}I (obtenus tous deux a l'aide de neutrons rapides) s'averent etre egalement differents. Lorsque les deux radioisotopes ont ete traites apres irradiation a des temperatures allant jusqu'a 100 Degree-Sign C, leur retention a augmente dans la meme proportion que l'activite totale, c'est-a-dire que la difference de retention est restee constante. Ainsi, la fraction de {sup 128}I reduite par le processus de recul qui est en exces par rapport a la fraction de {sup 126}I reduite est beaucoup moins influencee par le chauffage que ne l'est la fraction qui est reduite dans les deux radioisotopes a la fois. Il est evident qu'un comportement chimique aussi complique de l'atome chaud de recul ne peut etre explique que par un modele tres detaille. (author) [Spanish] La aplicacion de un modelo simple de reaccion de retroceso en un solido sugiere que la retencion primaria (sin recocido) deberia reflejar los efectos isotopicos (que dependerian probablemente de la forma en que el nucleo producido pierde su exceso de energia nuclear), y que esta cantidad deberia ser independiente del estado de la red cristalina. En cambio, la regeneracion por recocido en este modelo simple deberia depender del estado (y tratamiento previo) del

    Characterization of untreated or alkali-treated 'taquara-lixa' (Merostachys skvortzovii Sendulsky ), a low cost Brazilian bamboo fiber, was performed by determining their chemical composition (moisture, ash, lignin and extractives contents), solubility in hot or cold water, pH values and crystallinity index. Thermal analysis showed that fibers begin to degrade at 250 deg C. Samples of taquara-lixa/epoxy resin composites were prepared with 56% w/w aligned long fibers (280 mm) and with 54% (w/w) dispersed short fibers (25 mm) and a sandwich-beam sample shaped in three layers was prepared with two outer long fiber composite layers separated by a thicker layer of the short fiber material. Composites were characterized by x-ray diffraction patterns, water and moisture absorption and flexural tests. Elasticity and shear modulus of composites (15500 MPa and 932 MPa/6800 MPa and 1042 MPa for long and short composites, respectively) indicated that these materials can be used for structural applications, with the advantage of low water (8.4%) and low moisture (2.4-2.8%) absorption.

    This research is related to new approaches for non-invasive imaging techniques that allows registering the internal architecture of sedimentary deposits generated in hydraulic simulation tanks to better understand the behavior of density currents. Polymeric composite with properties and characteristics similar to coal 205 was prepared with inorganic filler for non-destructive tests. It was used an orthophthalic polyester resin with different dye loads and barium sulfate as inorganic filler. Tests on x-ray Microtomography showed that the barium sulphate provides the necessary opacity for detection with such technique. Scanning electron microscopy allowed evaluating and classifying the shape of the matrix and measuring the nanometric dimensions of the filler. Specific mass and drop rate were also evaluated and it was found that the incorporation of dye and filler did not affected significantly the desired characteristics. For this reasons, the composite prepared show potential use in simulations and non-invasive imaging. (author)

    This work evaluated experimentally the influence of the stacking sequence of layers symmetrical and asymmetrical on the mechanical behavior of polymeric composite cylinders. For so much, two open-ended cylinders groups were manufactured by filament winding process, which had different stacking sequence related to the laminate midplane, characterizing symmetrical and asymmetrical laminates. The composite cylinders were made with epoxy matrix and carbon fiber as reinforcement. For evaluation of the mechanical strength, the cylinders were tested hydrostatically, which consisted of internal pressurization in a hydrostatic device through the utilization of a fluid until the cylinders burst. Additionally, were compared the strains and failure modes between the cylinders groups. The utilization of a finite element program allowed to conclude that this tool, very used in design, does not get to identify tensions in the fiber direction in each composite layer, as well as interlaminar shear stress, that appears in the cylinders with asymmetrical stacking sequence. The tests results showed that the stacking sequence had influence in the mechanical behavior of the composite cylinders, favoring the symmetrical construction. (author)

    Lignin is a natural polymer derived from lignocellulosic materials with high availability, presenting a huge potential for production of new materials. Due to its complex macromolecular structure, and its low compatibility with styrene, eucalyptus wood-extracted lignin method was esterified with methacrylic anhydride - exhibiting a yield of 64% - in order to ensure homogeneity in the organic phase into the reaction medium. The evaluation of both the natural and esterified lignin through infrared (IR) spectroscopy showed a decrease of the hydroxyl band, characteristic of natural lignin (3200-3400 cm{sup -1}) and an increase of the characteristic ester band (1720 to 1740 cm{sup -1}). According to nuclear magnetic resonance ({sup 1}H NMR) analysis on esterified lignin, intense peaks were observed in the range from 1.7 to 2.05 ppm (-CH{sub 3}) and 5.4 ppm to 6.2 ppm (=CH{sub 2}), related to methacrylic anhydride. According to the thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), the esterified lignin showed a decrease in its thermal stability when compared to natural lignin, exhibiting two main weight losses between 200 °C and 300 °C and in the interval from 550 °C to 800 °C. Comparatively, the esterified lignin also displayed an increase in its glass transition temperature (Tg = 98 °C) for, when compared to natural lignin, whose Tg value was determined to be equal to 91 °C.

    Piassava fibers were investigated with the aim of adding new business value. The surface of the fibers were treated with NaOH and H{sub 2}SO{sub 4} for 1 h at room temperature. The samples were characterized by FTIR, TGA, DSC, chemical composition, XRD, SEM and tensile tests. The micrographs of the fibers showed that treatment with NaOH cleaned the fiber surface of a large amount of impurities and cause fibrillation. Chemical analysis, using the Van Soest method, showed that the palm fiber is a fiber rich in lignin, as evidenced by their brown color and with alkali treatment there was partial removal of hemicellulose and lignin, increasing the crystallinity index of the fiber, observed by XRD. The acid treatment caused no significant changes in the properties of the fiber. Therefore, the mercerisation was efficient in the fiber of palm fiber, improving their properties, enabling thus their use as reinforcement in polymer composites. (author)

    Several materials with densities close to water are used as phantoms in dosimetry. Such materials are damaged because they are exposed to radiation, the surface layers suffer the largest changes. This damage can be assessed by instrumented indentation. This paper investigates the variations in hardness and elastic modulus of samples of polymethyl-methacrylate, polyvinyl chloride, polyacetal and polypropylene before and after being irradiated with gamma radiation dose 500 Gy, using a Nanoindeter XP, with applied loads between 1 mN and 400 mN. The results are discussed correlating the variations in the mechanical properties of polymers with their applications. (author)

    The lubricity coefficient (CL) and filtrate volume of the polymeric drilling fluids contained glycerin, paraffin, biodiesel and biosurfactant were investigated to evidence the influence and efficiency when used individually or through associated. All the tested fluids were aged in rotative oven for 16 hours, at 200 deg F. In this study, the association of biodiesel with biosurfactant proved to be promising because it reduced the CL in 87% and the volume of filtered by 22%. Those results become promising when the applicability is approached in perforation of wells, because it means a smaller wear and tear of the drills when we told the lubricity data, and a smaller damage the formation when we provided a smaller invasion of the perforation fluid the formations. To evaluate the effect of the degradation of the products, the fluids were stocked to room temperature by thirty (30) days, being soon afterwards. That time of stockpiling went ideal to the hydration of the molecules, because its viscosity was alters sensibly and influencing positively in the filtrate and in rheologic mediated. (author)

    This work presents a methodology for the automatic detection of flaws in polymer insulators using three-dimensional industrial computed tomography (CT), as well as results obtained in the context of power distribution networks. The CT slices were reconstructed using 180 digital radiographs (projections) acquired by a high resolution system (pixel dimension of 50 {mu}m x 50 {mu}m, a-Si). For the reconstruction of 3D CT, 50 {mu}m wide bit map slices were used. The Marching Cubes algorithm was used to perform the 3D reconstruction, using the Visualization Tool kit (VTK) library and the Java programming language (64 Bits Linux platform). Nine features were obtained from the reconstructed three-dimensional objects for the neural networks training. Results showed to be satisfactory. (author)

    The use of rice husk ash (RHA) as filler in polymeric materials has been studied in different polymers. Research reported that RHA may successfully replace silica. The silica production process using ore demands high energy input and produces considerable amounts of waste. Therefore, the replacement of silica by RHA may be economically and environmentally advantageous, reducing environmental impact and adding value to a waste material. In this context, this study characterizes and compares RHA of different sources (travelling grate reactor and fluidized bed reactor) with commercially available silicas to assess performance as filler in polymeric materials. Samples were characterized by X-ray fluorescence, loss on ignition, X-ray diffraction, grain size, specific surface area and specific weight. The results show that RHA may be used as a filler in several polymeric materials.(author)

    In this work nanocomposites based on chitosan and different clays were prepared using polyethyleneglycol (PEG) as plasticizer. The samples obtained were characterized by Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA/DTG) and by mechanical characterization (tensile test) with the aim of investigating the interactions between chitosan and clay. The nanocomposite films prepared using sodium bentonite (Ben) showed an increase of 81.2% in the maximum tensile stress values and a decrease of 16.0% in the Young’s modulus when compared to the chitosan with PEG (QuiPEG) films, evidencing that the introduction of the clay into the polymer matrix provided a more flexible and resistant film, whose elongation at break was 93.6% higher than for the QuiPEG film.

    In the drilling wells in horizontal or complex configurations, the drilling fluid contact with the productive zone can reduce the productivity by fluid invasion in the borehole wall. Drilling fluids usually comprise natural polymers as starch and xanthan gum. These polymers are deposited as the filter-cake on the wellbore wall. A common approach to remove this filter-cake is the application of acids or strong oxidative solutions. However, these are non-specific species which will react with any encountered that is acid soluble or oxidizable. An alternative is the use of enzymatic preparations that are able to hydrolyze such polymers. The enzymes catalyze only certain specific substrates, are inherently environmentally friendly, the enzymatic degradation rate is slower than that achieved by the oxidative species, so the enzymes produces an uniform filter cake degradation. In this work, the kinetic behaviors of an enzymatic filter-cake breaker and a commercial thermo stable enzymatic complex were analyzed. Both kinetic profiles were very similar, as well as its electrophoresis analysis. The protein in each product showed identical molecular weight. The commercial enzymatic complex stability remained 58.56% of enzymatic activity after 30 days at 40 deg C. Stability at wellbore conditions can be considered similar for both products. At 65 deg C they showed the same enzymatic activity after 8 hours. After 3 hours at 80 deg C, the commercial enzymatic complex remained 29.89% of the initial activity and the filter-cake breaker 61.73%, while at 95 deg C remained 4.39% and 11.60% of the initial activity, respectively, after 15 minutes.

    Materials used as engineering barriers for solid waste disposal requires structures which avoid diffusion of dangerous elements to the environment, as well as the incorporation of external agents in the disposal. Concretes represent a good choice for making engineering barriers due to their low cost and ease of fabrication. In order to promote a low deterioration rate it is necessary to decrease crack formation and flow of water and ions through the concrete matrix, which may be accomplished using concretes of low porosity and high compression strengths. In this work, a concrete C35 (characteristic compression strength between 35 and 39 MPa, NBR 8953 standard) was submitted to accelerated deterioration tests by sulfates, carbonates and gamma radiation. We observed that the concrete kept its mechanical properties after the deterioration tests carried out. A microstructural evaluation revealed low porosity and strong cohesion of the components.

    It has been studied the physical mechanisms related with the spectral shift control method and their general positive effects on economical and non-proliferant aspects (extension of the fuel cycle length and low proliferation index). This methods has been extended to non-hydrogenous fuel cells of high moderator/fuel ratio: heavy water cells have been con- trolled by graphite rods graphite-moderated and gas-cooled cells have been controlled by berylium rods and graphite-moderated and water-cooled cells have been controlled by a changing mixture of heavy and light water. It has been carried out neutron and thermal analysis on a pre design of these types of fuel cells. We have studied its neutron optimization and their fuel cycles, temperature coefficients and proliferation indices. Finally, we have carried out a comparative analysis of the fuel cycles of conventionally controlled PWRs and graphite-moderated, water-cooled and spectral shift controlled reactors.

    The most promising technology for generating electric power, with reduced environmental impact, is the fuel cell. This technology is virtually non-polluting and the fuel supplies can be renewable. Therefore is necessary to study the technique of preparing the entire anode / electrolyte / cathode to optimize its operation. There are still major challenges to making the SOFC economically viable. The key is the improvement of manufacturing of its components and use of materials that can simultaneously reduce costs and reduce the temperature of operation. Among the properties of the cell, was shown the dependence of the efficiency of the device on the properties of the electrolyte, particularly its thickness. The mixture of YSZ with GDC in the composition of the anode and electrolyte aims to obtain a material with greater ionic conductivity. After sintering the cell was characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). (author)

For this study cyclic voltammetry and electrochemical impedance measurements were performed at pH 7.4 in 0.1 mol L{sup -1} PBS containing Fe(CN){sub 6}{sup -3}/{sup -4} redox species. The impedance results were interpreted based on a charge-transfer reaction involving Fe(CN){sub 6}{sup -3}/{sup -4} species and/or oxygen at higher frequencies and, diffusion of the electroactive species and carbon paste characteristics at lower frequencies. EPC-minicavity is suitable for electroanalysis using modified carbon paste. (author)

    This work studies the residue obtained from the process of aluminum metal extraction activities, a great interest process, because of Brazil own some of the biggest bauxite mineral reserves in all the world. As a useful choice for no residue generation, and a support for environmentally friendly technologies, this work studies the white dross residue (WDR), from the process of aluminum metal reduction by thermal plasma. The phase equilibrium diagram of Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}-Ca O-SiO{sub 2} system was used to calculate the compositions. The WDR were incorporated in a ceramic product without modifying its principal characteristics. The fusion and devitrification treatments were studied. XRD (X-ray diffractometry), SEM (scanning electron microscopy) and FTIR (transformed Fourier infrared) were used to investigate the glass and glassceramic samples. These techniques showed that is possible to get glassceramic with up to 30 mass% of WDR after molten at 1300 deg C and annealed at 900 deg C. In addition, the WDR showed to be a promising material in attainment of crystalline phases in less times of heat treatment for annealing. (author)

The method highlights itself due to its simplicity, low cost and capability to obtain crystalline powders with the high purity and good stoichiometric control. The perovskite obtained were characterized by thermogravimetric analysis, X ray diffraction, electronic scanning microscopy and the superficial area by BET method. The deposition of the perovskite on electrolyte/anode system was done through the spin coating technique. The methodology used for the perovskite synthesis was very efficient, considering a monophasic material was obtained and with characteristics that were proper to the application as electrode to solid oxide fuel cells.

    The hydrogen production by water electrolysis was tested with different electrocatalysts (nickel, iron alloys containing nickel, chromium and manganese, and molybdenum) in the ionic liquid electrolyte, 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate (BMI.BF{sub 4}), 10 vol.% in water. The hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) worked at room temperature with a platinum quasi-reference electrode (PtQRE) applying a -1.7 V potential. The experimental conditions used were determined in previous work and such parameters of operation were confirmed with the electrocatalysts employed in this work. A Hoffman cell apparatus was used to perform the water electrolysis. The current density values, j, obtained were between 3.0 mA cm{sup -2} and 77.5 mA cm{sup -2}. The system efficiency was very high for all electrocatalysts tested, between 97.0% and 99.2%. The molybdenum (Mo) electrode was better than others showing the highest current density value in HER. This behavior has been explained by the lower value of activation energy for the electrolysis reaction when Mo is employed comparing with Pt electrode. The energy activation of the HER using platinum (Pt) as electrocatalyst in an aqueous solution of BMI.BF{sub 4} 10 vol.% was 23.40 kJ mol{sup -1}, whereas with electrode of Mo in the same conditions , was 9.22 kJ mol{sup -1}. In an alkaline aqueous electrolyte (usual medium for such reaction), Mo is less efficient than Pt explaining the lack of published citation using pure Mo as cathode for the HER.

    Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine have as main objective the morphologic/functional reestablishment of injured tissues and organs using cells, scaffolds, stem cells and control of immunological/biochemical responses promoted by the body. In addition, materials science seeks to develop biocompatible biomaterials that do not promote unwanted immune responses and provide the re-establishment of the functions of the tissue/organ. Polymers of natural origin stand out as biomaterials to resemble biological macromolecules, similarity to the extracellular matrix, reduced chance of inflammation and chronic pacing low or no toxicity. This study aimed the development of macromolecular arrays originated from epoxidized soybean oil (OSE), analyzing the relationship between the chemical structure/biological activity of the macromolecular arrays for use as biomaterials in tissue engineering. The synthesis of OSE was performed through the oil chemical route, whose efficiency was determined by infrared spectroscopy and the reaction yield of 85%, determined by nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. From the analysis by differential scanning calorimetry, it was detected a decrease of the glass transition temperature of the epoxidized soybean oil polymer (POSE) compared with OSE, suggesting an increase of the growth of polymer chains of POSE. Thermogravimetric analysis was performed to define the OSE degradation profile, which degrades in two steps. The POSE degrades in just one step and shows higher thermal stability by the increased molecular interactions. The hydrophilicity and crosslinking of POSE was promoted by the addition of 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) with the monomer grafting by gamma irradiation. The results showed an increased mechanical stability, gelation and water absorption with the HEMA content increasing. Finally, the degree of crystallinity for such polymers grafted with HEMA was 27.5%, estimated by X-ray diffractometry. The second stage was characterized by (I) developing POSEs with the grafting of HEMA in the proportions OSE / HEMA 90:10 and 65:35 irradiated by gamma rays at doses of 50 and 100kGy, (II) physico-chemical characterization of POSE-HEMA and (III) analysis of biological materials. By infrared spectroscopy, it was detect the epoxidized regions of POSE, as well as the successful grafting of the monomer HEMA concentrations with all radiation doses. By differential scanning calorimetry, the activation energy was calculated (E{sub a}) of the polymers. The crystallinity of the material was defined by X-ray diffraction, showing tendency of amorphous material as well as a small percentage of the increase in crystallinity with increasing intensity of radiation doses during this synthesis and a decrease in crystallinity with the increasing concentration of HEMA. The analysis of the samples did not show cytotoxicity on POSE-HEMA and confirmed the efficiency of polymer washings to remove the processing waste. The analysis of hemocompatibility showed any platelet adhesion and the cell growth on the scaffolds was positive. From the results obtained in this research, we concluded by the potential use of POSE-HEMA in tissue engineering. (author)

    The petroleum industry faces several problems related to the crystallization of paraffins, in petroleum and its derivatives, with the reduction of the service temperature. To solve this problem polymeric additives are used, of which the esters have been enough studied in several areas of the world, except in Brazil. In this work, this class of pour point depressant additives it was obtained through the chemical modification of Hydroxyl Terminate Polybutadiene (HTPB) that present a hydrocarbon chemical structure containing one double bound in each repetitive unit and hydroxyl groups of the primary and secondary allylic types - functional groups potentially reactive. The obtained products were characterized by Fourier transformed infrared spectroscopy and nuclear magnetic resonance, and they are being tested as additive for the pour point reduction of a diesel oil samples (REPAR-PETROBRAS).

    The problems associated with medical cases of functional tissue loss or organ failure are destructive and expensive, even more frequent than could be perceived, sometime if not properly treated, even deathly. Tissue engineering is an interdisciplinary field that emerged to address these clinical problems, it is based on researching and development of biomaterials that have evolved along with areas such as cell biology, molecular and materials science and engineering. Today, the technique is based on seeding cells onto prefabricated scaffold biomaterials, like the hydrogels, that are three-dimensional networks with hydrophilic properties. These materials are characterized as being porous and sticky, favoring the support for the proliferation of certain cells in order to lead the regeneration of injured tissue. As a prerequisite for the use of materials in tissue engineering is testing biocompatibility which is the ability of the bio material to allow contact with any tissue, existing a favorable host response, accepting it as their own and restoring previously lost function. The first step for evaluating biocompatibility is to perform the in vitro assays. These assays have been demonstrated more reproducibility and predictability than in vivo assays, therefore the in vitro assays are used to produce high quality scaffolds and testing on animals as less as possible. This test is essential to establish the benefits and limitations of biomaterials tested in order to improve the scaffolds. This work will focus on assessing the biocompatibility of three polymeric materials with potential use in tissue engineering by means of cytological compatibility tests and hemo compatibility tests. Furthermore, disinfection techniques and gamma sterilization were evaluated to produce sterile materials that can be used in tissue engineering. (Author)

    Polymeric resins are being tried as an alternative material for treating oily waters from the petroleum industry, which have already been treated by conventional methods. The objective of this work has been to evaluate the purification degree of synthetic oily waters when treated in fixed bed columns packed with polymeric resins made up of hydrophilic and lipophilic moieties. The analysis used for characterizing the total grease and oil content (TOG) was fluorimetry. Starting oily waters of average TOG 50 ppm were prepared. Data obtained from eluted waters did not outweigh 10% of the TOG values of starting solutions in some blends of resins with a pretty good mechanical stability under the increase of pressure. Organoclay material showed a good retention performance, but has presented a mechanical instability too, compromising its use for larger amounts of wastewater. (author)

    We report a study using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), Thermogravimetry Analysis, Differential Scanning Calorimetry and Infrared Spectroscopy in polymeric complexes formed poly(ethylene oxide), (PEO), and lithium salts. These complexes have have shown a large potential for technological applications in batteries, sensors, etc. We developed and characterized humidity sensors and discussed how the humidity affects the conformation of the complexes, the mobility of ionic species, and the polymeric chains. The results indicate that the hydration affects the conformation of polymeric complexes by plasticizing the water, which induces a volumetric expansion in the PEO chain. The processes was completely reversible for the level of hydration studied. NMR was used to distinguish the movement of polymeric chains from the movement of the ionic species. From the analysis of the second moment of resonance lines from the study of the nuclear relaxation we were able to estimate the average distance between the ionic species and the proton in the complexes chains. The behaviour of spin -lattice relaxation of hydrogen and fluorine in the P(EO) - Li B F, as a function of temperature and frequency reflects the nature of the disorder and the complexity of the ionic conduction process in these materials.

    The use of polymeric materials in the electrical system has dramatically increased in recent years, in quantity as well as in quality. However, the use of these materials has been very empirical, being necessary a more directed and well based study towards their application in energy sector, especially concerning their early deterioration. In this study, the behavior of some surge arresters and insulators, used in power lines, after suffering aging artificial weathering chamber, was investigated. The absorption spectra in the infrared (FTIR) was used as analytical technique for study of aging. Of the five samples tested, only one showed an oxidation process after 1500 hours of artificial weathering. (author)

    The present work deals with the synthesis of tin dioxide powders doped with fluorine and chlorine anions to evaluate the influence of these on the physico-chemical properties of SnO2, as well as to verify if the dopant does not make a solid solution with the material and its possible use as sintering additive. The samples were synthesized by Pechini method (polymer precursors) with tin oxalate as a source not contaminated with chlorine of this metal. Specific surface area characterization (BET method) and X-ray diffractometry (XRD) show that doping reduces the particle size of SnO2, being more effective at lower dopant levels. The dilatometry of the doped powders shows a reduction in the beginning and end temperatures of the sintering of the tin dioxide when compared with values in the literature.

    In this work, the polymeric precursor method (Pechini method) was used to synthesize titanium dioxide. This process allowed a bigger control on the purity of the oxide and the crystalline phase present in the material. In this case, the principal phase was anatase. The resine obtained in this process was characterized using NMR and IR spectroscopy to determine their structure. With this information we proposed a resine structure model. To finish the process, the resin was thermally treated to obtain TiO{sub 2}. This oxide was characterized using different techniques: ray-X diffraction (RDX) and electron microscopy (TEM and SEM). The results indicated that the TiO{sub 2} anatase phase can be obtained at 450 degree centigrade with a particle size <100nm. (Author) 10 refs.

    This work aims at the development of polymeric materials to be employed as organic deposition inhibitors - ODI's for petroleum and middle distillate of petroleum, such as lube oils. The additives were obtained by chemical modifications involving esterification reactions of commercial ethylene-co-vinyl acetate (EVA) copolymers and poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) with long chain organic acid chlorides. The materials efficiency was tested by pour point measurements of the model system containing commercial paraffin. Data show that chemically modified copolymers had a reasonable performance as pour point reducing agents of the model system used. Moreover, the products were also tested as lube oil additives, and the results showed that the chemically modified copolymers presented a more pronounced influence on the paraffin crystallization process than the non-modified EVA commercial sample.

    One of the main requirements for the use of fiber-reinforced polymer matrix composites in structural applications is the evaluation of their behavior during service life. The warranties of the integrity of these structural components demand a study of the time dependent behavior of these materials due to viscoelastic response of the polymeric matrix and of the countless possibilities of design configurations. In the present study, creep and creep rupture test in stress were performed in specimens of unidirectional carbon fiber-reinforced epoxy composites with fibers orientations of 60 degree and 90 degree, at temperatures of 25 and 70 degree C. The aim is the viscoelastic characterization of the material through the creep curves to some levels of constant tension during periods of 1000 h, the attainment of the creep rupture envelope by the creep rupture curves and the determination of the transition of the linear for non-linear behavior through isochronous curves. In addition, comparisons of creep compliance curves with a viscoelastic behavior prediction model based on Schapery equation were also performed. For the test, a modification was verified in the behavior of the material, regarding the resistance, stiffness and deformation, demonstrating that these properties were affected for the time and tension level, especially in work temperature above the ambient. The prediction model was capable to represent the creep behavior, however the determination of the equations terms should be considered, besides the variation of these with the applied tension and the elapsed time of test.

Mechanical properties, chemical composition, morphology and corrosion resistance were determined, using different characterization techniques, such as: 1) mechanically, according to standard procedures Astm E-384-1990, 2) chemically, by the corrosion resistance in the presence of an electrochemical cell, in aqueous solution of H{sub 2}SO{sub 4}, 1 N by Astm G-5-1999, 3) morphologically by scanning electron microscopy technique, and 4) efficiency of separation, by the gas chromatography technique in order to determine the chemical absorption of CO{sub 2} by Mea. The ceramic material was the hardest with 700 Hk value and tensile strength of 90 MPa, likewise showed resistance to corrosion of 10.28 m py, separation efficiency of 74% CO{sub 2}, at 10 minutes. The metallic material had a hardness of 190 Hk and it was the most resistant of tension, with 831 MPa, and corrosion resistance of 780.4 x 10{sup -6} m py, likewise promoted CO{sub 2} separation efficiency of 90% during the evaluation. The polymeric material presented hardness of 20 Hk and 35 MPa and it was not suffered surface change with electrochemical attack, with 282.4 x 10{sup -6} m py, and separation efficiency of 88%. Therefore the polymer was the most ductile, with smooth surface and greater resistance with H{sub 2}SO{sub 4}. The metal material was more resistant to plastic deformation and more corrugated surface and the second resistance in the presence of acid medium in aqueous solutions. For all the above, the metallic material is recommended by its greater separation in the reduction of acid gases and the polymer due to its greater chemical resistance. (Author)

    Ceramics materials obtained by Polymeric Precursor Method exhibit mechanisms of the pore formation and elimination dependents on the decomposition kinetics of the residual organic matter of the polyester. The mechanism of pore elimination seems to occur by disrupting of the wall among the pores because it leads to the consequent pore coalescence and increasing in pore volume, which posses higher pore diameters. In this case, it was observed that the porosity decreasing occurs by pore wall moving after that the residual organic matter is eliminated from the pore inside. The pore diameter associated to the highest volume desorption occurred for the material obtained after calcining at 450°C is approximately 1,7 nm, what seems to be related to the amorphous carbon accumulated inside the pores, once that the pore volume decreases more effectively for the material obtained by calcining at 550°C, making the maximum volume situates at 2,0 nm.

    National Nanotechnology Laboratory (LNNano) at the National Center for Energy and Materials (CNPEM) presents open facilities for scientific public in some areas. In this work will be discussed the facilities for mainly the polymeric community, as well as new methods for the characterization. Low density polyethylene (LDPE) surfaces were characterized by X-ray microtomography and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The results obtained by microtomography have shown that these surfaces present different contrasts when compared with the bulk. These differences are correlated with the formation of an oxidized layer at the polymer surface, which consequently have a greater X-ray attenuation. This hypothesis is confirmed by XPS, which shows LDPE surface layers are richer in carbonyl, carboxyl and vinyl groups than the bulk. This work presents that microtomography can be used as a new method for detection and characterization of polymer surface oxidation. (author)

    This study evaluates the environmental problems caused by the mining works of coal, peat and oil schists; also it evaluates the kind of treatment used by the mining companies against water, air and ground pollution, as well as the necessary control according to the mine activities and the affected environment. the studied areas are situated at brasilian states of Santa Catarina (Criciuma, Urussanga and Sideropolis), Rio Grande do Sul (Charqueada, Bage, Cachoeira do Sul, Butia and Arroio dos Ratos), Parana (Figueira and Sao Mateus do Sul), and Sao Paulo (Iguape and Sao Jose dos Campos). This study was done through a direct inquiry, by sending questionnaire to fifteen coal mining companies, three of peat ones and one of oil schists one. besides it was done a compilation of federal and state laws concerning to the environment and on the rights and duties of the mining companies. The information brought up in this way were compiled into a data bank, which allowed and sample surveys of environmental condition in the different industries and further it enabled a comparison between the real facts and the bibliography suggestions about adequate monitoring of the air, waters and ground, during mining activities. this analysis showed that the environment problems, created by the three former kind of mining works, are under control through projects of environment restoring and monitoring in phase of implantation and that these projects are restricted to that less expensive and easier to construct (holding back in pools or reservoirs, pouring in pits and aspersion). It was not notices a significant monitoring of parameters considered to be critical to the environment (metals, cyanides, sulphide and general bacteria). Almost all the companies have not yet exact data about the efficiency of each kind of environmental treatment because it is new ones and are just in follow-up and consequently they have not yet parameters to change the adequate the steps of the treatment, because of lack of information. Any way it is not a justification to the present condition of environment control of these companies, just because its of their responsibility the consequences of their producing activities.

    An area monitor for neutrons composed of the solid state nuclear track detector (SSNTD) Makrofol DE, together with a (n,{alpha}) converter, in the center of a 25 cm diameter polyethylene sphere, is developed. The optimal electrochemical etching conditions for the detection of thermal neutrons by the Makrofol DE using the BN converter are studied, leading to the choice of 55 min, at 30{sup 0} C, under a 44,2 kV.cm{sup -1} electric field with oscillation frequency of 2,0 khz. The response of this system to thermal neutrons, in the optimal conditions, is of 2,76(10)x 10{sup -3} tr/n. Changing from the BN converter to a 2,73(3)g compressed boric acid tablet this value lowers to 3,88(17)x 10{sup -4} tr/n. The performance of the whole monitor in the detection of fast neutrons is examined using the BN converter and neutrons from a {sup 241} Am Be source, with a response of 4,4(2)x 10{sup 3} tr.mSv{sup -1}.cm{sup -2} and operational limits between 7(3){mu}Sv and 5,6(2)mSv. The result of the monitoring of the control room of the IPEN Cyclotron accelerator are also presented as a final test for the viability of the practical use of the monitor.

    A laboratory setup was designed and put into operation for the development of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs). Ceramic single cells were fabricated by low-cost methods, and emphasis was given to the use of ready available raw materials. The whole project consisted of the preparation of the component materials - anode, cathode, and electrolyte - and the buildup of a hydrogen leaking-free sample chamber with platinum leads and current collectors for measuring the electrochemical properties of single SOFCs. Anode-supported single SOFCs of the type (ZrO{sub 2}:Y{sub 2}O{sub 3} + NiO) anode / (ZrO{sub 2}:Y{sub 2}O{sub 3}) electrolyte / (La{sub 0.65}Sr{sub 0.35}MnO{sub 3} + ZrO{sub 2}:Y{sub 2}O{sub 3}) cathode have been prepared and tested at 700 deg C and 800 deg C after in situ H{sub 2} anode reduction. The main results show that the slurry coating method resulted in single-cells with good reproducibility and reasonable performance, suggesting that this method can be considered for fabrication of SOFCs.

    In the coordinated project DISPOSAL OF SOLID RESIDUES FROM COAL it is included the project Coal Mining Spoil Heap Management as Urban Solid Waste Dump. The main target of this project consisted of determining the viability of using coal mining spoil heaps, as controlled dubbish dump of urban solid wastes. The working plan to achieve this objective was composed of the following stages: 1. Urban solid wastes characterization. 2. Methodology to be followed for the selection of coal mining spoil heaps as controlled dump of urban solid wastes. 2.1 Classification and preliminary assessment of the possibility of using spoil heaps as urban solid waste dumps (APT/NON APT). 2.2 Realization of geological, geotechnical, hydrogeological and environmental studies applied to the spoil heaps classified as APT. 2.3 Analysis of the compatibility of the mining activity with the urban solid wastes dumped on the spoil heap. 2.4 Analysis of the use of coal mining wastes in the rubbish dump operative life. 3. Extraction of conclusions. The works were focused in the Leon province. As result of the researches we obtained the following results and conclusions: In the areas studied, only two emplacements are optima to dump urban solid wastes; spoil heap n. 13. Roguera Mine (Cinera-Matallana) and the open pit mine n. 4, Las Chaviadas, in Villablino. The active spoil heap use as controlled rubbish dump can cause, if not managed adequately, several coperating and occupational problems to the mine and to the company that manages the urban solid wastes. The abandoned spoil heap utilisation is difficult due to the problems that would arise when conditioning the site to be use as rubbish dump. The use of abandoned open pit mines, as controlled rubbish dump is feasible if geological, geotechnical, hydrogeological and environmental studies support it. It's possible the use of the coal mining wastes in the different operatives phases of the controlled rubbish dump. The evaluation methodology developed during the project is considered satisfactory, therefore we don't consider necessary to prosecute the research in this field. The methodology could be used in the future for looking for suitable rubbish dumps in other mining areas, especially when no other adequate locations are available, even though such need is not apparent by now.

    The Chapter 40 of the Agenda 21 guides for the use of indicators as effective instruments to synthesize and to transmit information in a significant way, inside of the making decision process. The environmental indicators aid in the analysis of the environmental quality, which depends on the pressure exercised in the environment and they possess the communication function and administration function. To facilitate the communication, the indicators should be in reduced number and of easy understanding. To facilitate the administration, the indicators should be aligned with the political questions. This work defined 15 environmental indicators for the System of environmental administration of oil waste of the oil industry as instruments to organize, to systematize, to quantify, to simplify and to communicate relative information to several environmental aspects, using the model Pressure-state-impact-answer proposed by PNUMA-CIAT (1996) added of prospective indicators, making possible to determine the type and the nature of the socio-environmental relationships.

    A new method for direct preparation of materials for solid oxide fuel cell anode - Ni- YSZ cermets - based on mechanical alloying (MA) of the original powders is developed, allowing to admix homogeneously any component. Additive metals are selected from thermodynamic criteria, leading to compacts consolidation through sintering by activated surface (SAS). The combined process MA-SSA can reduce the sintering temperature by 300 deg C, yielding porous anodes. Densification mechanisms are discussed from quasi-isothermal sintering kinetics results. Doping with Ag, W, Cu, Mo, Nb, Ta, in descending order, promotes the densification of pellets through liquid phase sintering and evaporation of metals and oxides, which allow reducing the sintering temperature. Powders and pellets characterization by electronic microscopy and X-ray diffraction completes the result analyses. (author)

    Accelerated population growth, combined with a substantial migration from rural to urban areas, is placing considerable strains on the provision of basic services in a number of cities in less developed countries. Some of the services that are severely impacted include water supply, solid waste collection and disposal, and sewage. Insufficient coverage of solid waste collection, improperly managed final disposition of the wastes, combined with inadequate wastewater collection and treatment, can contaminate the sources of water supply and cause serious threats to public health and the environment.

    This work is focused to project the volumes of radioactive aqueous liquid wastes and spent radioactive sources that will be generated in our country in next 15 years, solids compaction and radioactive organic liquids in 10 years starting from the 2014; with the purpose of knowing the technological needs that will be required for their administration. The methodology involves six aspects to develop: the definition of general objectives, to specify the temporary horizon of projection, data collection, selection of the prospecting model and the model application. This approach was applied to the inventory of aqueous liquid wastes, as well as radioactive compaction organic and solids generated in Mexico by non energy applications from the 2001 to 2014, and of the year 1997 at 2014 for spent sources. The applied projection models were: Double exponential smoothing associating the tendency, Simple Smoothing and Lineal Regression. For this study was elected the first forecast model and its application suggests that: the volume of the compaction solid wastes, aqueous liquids and spent radioactive sources will increase respectively in 152%, 49.8% and 55.7%, while the radioactive organic liquid wastes will diminish in 13.15%.

    Introduction: Lipid nanocarriers are systems used to target drugs to its site of action and have attracted attention of the scientific community because they are biocompatible and biodegradable. These systems can target drugs to solid tumors, providing sustained drug release in the site of action, thus increasing the utility of the antineoplastic chemotherapy. Objective: To review the available literature on in vivo experiments with lipid nanocarriers containing cytotoxic drugs for solid tumors treatment. Method: A search study was carried out in Pubmed{sup R} database from 2007 to 2011, with subject descriptors: liposomes, lipid nanoparticles, cancer and in vivo, with the boolean operator 'and' among them, in English. Results: 1,595 papers related to the use of liposomes and 77 related to lipid nanoparticles were found. Few studies reported in vivo experiments with lipid nanoparticles (28 papers) compared to liposomes (472 papers), since liposomes were developed two decades before lipid nanoparticles. Four liposomal medicines have already been approved and are used in the clinic while only one medicine containing lipid nanoparticles is in phase I of clinical studies. Conclusion: The number of papers related to the use of nanotechnology for cancer treatment is increasing rapidly, making important to know the different kinds of nanocarriers and, especially, those which are already used in the clinic. There are only few clinical studies on lipid nanocarriers; however, these systems present an enormous potential to improve the clinical practice in oncology. (author)

    Municipal solid waste is one of the major problems of modern society. In this sense it is necessary to discuss solutions to the fate of waste generated daily, increasingly in larger amounts, being imperative to advance the search for alternatives, not only in search of new technologies and solutions, as well as the improvement of methodologies currently employed to solve this relevant issue, especially in large urban centers. This paper presents the results of a comparative economic-environmental assessment performed by a method developed by BASF, two potential technologies: landfill and incineration with energy recovery. To facilitate the work, the information used were both real data - landfill and incinerator - Essencis Solucoes Ambientais S.A., (assuming some assumptions) and the use of secondary data, using the study of Arena et al., 2003. This ecoefficiency analysis tool covers the methodology of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), which is a technique to evaluate the inputs and outputs of matter and energy and the potential environmental impacts associated with all stages of resource extraction and their transformations , and the use and final disposal of the product. The data in the environmental assessment are presented according to major categories, using a weighting method developed by BASF and understand the consumption of natural resources, consumption of energy resources, air emissions, water and soil, potential for human toxicity, accidents work, occupational diseases and land use. Economic evaluation in this work took into account the costs involved in operation and maintenance of disposal techniques or treatment of waste. The comparative study found the treatment or disposal of 7.324109 billion kilograms of waste. As a result, the array of eco-efficiency indicates that the incinerator is the alternative that stands out, considering the environmental and economic profile, within the assumptions made in this study and taking into account which is a technique with energy recovery.

    Crude oil refining is an industrial activity known as very pollutant, as all other activities of the petroleum industry, regarding either the volume or the concentration of the resides involved, thus generating emissions, effluents and solid wastes. The aim of the present work is to study solid waste management of a certain petroleum refinery, located in Rio de Janeiro. On the solid wastes management of that refinery, the following aspects were considered: origin and period of generation, conditioning, storage, transportation, treatment and final disposal. After listing all the resides and through analysis of the industrial wastes (norms, terms, inventory), the industrial process and office routines were then analyzed. The solid wastes were divided in two categories: industrial and administrative wastes. As far as destination is concerned, resides classified as Class I are either co-processed or incinerated, while Class II and Class III wastes, when not recycled, are sent to industrial or sanitary landfill. Finally, after analyzing the wastes management of the refinery, it has been proposed a plan of achievements in order to enhance the environmental goal of the refinery. (author)

    In this work the initial characterization of granular solid industrial waste from diatomaceous earth was carried out using techniques of Scanning Electron Microscopy and X-ray Diffraction. In a second stage leaching of the material was undertaken to the US Patent Number 5, 376,000 and 5, 356,601 obtaining the samples M1-S ph 2, M1-L ph, M1-S ph 10 and M1-L ph 10. In the third stage a new characterization of the samples obtained with the techniques of Scanning Electron Microscopy, X-ray Diffraction and Atomic Absorption Spectrometry was performed, the latter in order to determine the efficiency percentage of the leaching process. In the fourth stage the specimens for performing mechanical, physical and chemical tests were manufactured, using molds as PVC pipes of 1 inch in diameter and 2 inches in length, with a composition of 50% of diatomaceous earth and 50% of cement produced in each. Finally, in the fifth stage mechanical testing (compression resistance), physical (moisture absorption rate) and chemical (composition and structure of the material) are performed. In the last stage, when conducting mechanical testing with the test specimens, the presence of bubbles enclosed in each obtaining erroneous results noted, so it was necessary to develop the specimens again, obtaining in this occasion concentrations of 20:80, 40:60, 60:40 and 80:20 of diatomaceous earth with the cement. These results were analyzed to determine if the used material is suitable for the production of building materials such as bricks or partitions, being demonstrated by the tests carried out if they are eligible.

    Zinc dust and zinc ash from hot-dip galvanizing industries located in Venezuela were characterized using atomic spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, X-Ray diffraction and infrared spectroscopy. Dust was formed during the high-pressure drying process of the galvanized pieces, in a plant that uses a steel kettle to hold the molten zinc. Ash identified as A came from the same plant as the dust, while ash identified as B came from a hot-dip galvanizing plant which use a ceramic lined galvanizing furnace. Dust contained 98 wt % Zn, in metallic form. Both ash samples contained: Zn and ZnO, while Zn{sub 5}(OH){sub 8}Cl{sub 2}×H{sub 2}O and ZnCl{sub 2} were only found in ash B. Globally, ash “A” and ash “B” contain 71 and 75 wt % Zn, respectively. (Author)

    A discussion of the physical, mechanical and tribological characterization of the ceramics Jaar, Jaca and Vijaar is presented in this work. They have been obtained from the industrial residuals, coming from metals and sand of the mining industry in Pachuca Hidalgo, Mexico. The methodology followed for the obtention and characterization of these ceramics consists on eliminating the cyanides from the tailings through columns coupled with a system controlled with thermostats. Then, the chemical composition is analysed with spectrometry emission of plasma and scanning electronic microscopy. Then the ceramics are produced. The base material is agglutinated with clay or kaolin. For this purpose, it was used a sintering processes and isothermal compacting in hot condition. Finally, the physical, chemical, mechanical and tribological properties of these new products are determined. Carbon, oxygen, sodium, magnesium, aluminium, manganese, silicon, potassium, phosphor, calcium, titanium, iron, molybdenum, silver and gold are in the chemical composition or ceramic analysed. Also these are heterogeneous mixture of clay and kaolin. The cyanide was eliminated. The results show that Vijaar has better wear resistances to the waste; this was demonstrated in tribology tests. They were not perforated with the abrasive particles. Also, they have high hardness and they can to support more loads in compression than Jaar and the Jaca. Consequently, they are less fragile and, therefore, they can tolerate bending stresses and bigger impact loading. (Author)

    Galvanic solid waste have elevated levels of heavy metals and usually are stocked in the industry, creating a worrisome environmental liabilities. This disturbing fact is aggravated in areas densely populated as the area east of Sao Paulo, which has a pole of industrial electroplating of chrome. The present paper, we describe and provide a technological option for the disposal of waste generated by this activity using techniques that allow the incorporation of these in a glass matrix. The wastes were characterized by XRF, EDS, ICP-AES, AAS, DTA/TGA, XRD and SEM-FEG and embedded in glass and frits made from the system SiO{sub -}CaO-Na{sub O}, with additions of up to 30% by weight. The results of the analysis of residues showed the majority presence of Ni, Cr, B, Cu, Ca and S. The resulting glasses showed that heavy metals were incorporated into its structure and probably replacing the Ca and Na. In addition, the products showed specific colors indicating the possibility of use in some segments of manufacturing in ceramics with glazes, loading and pigments. (author)

    With a aim to gaining some knowledge about urban solid waste management in the Montnegre- Corredor Park (Catalonia), the most significant related aspects were analyzed: the different public administrations involved, waste collector type of transport, treatment and, finally, waste disposal and its production from 1999 to 2002. Economical, environmental and social aspects of solid waste management at the Park were also studied. From this analysis we can establish that there is no specific plant for solid waste management in the Park, and action is limited to basic waste collection services. Moreover, there is a multiplicity of managers. In terms of maintenance it must be pointed out that selective collection is non-existent, and critical points have been identified in the most popular areas. The study also put forward a new solid waste management plan for the Park, recommending the unification of managers and the reduction of about 23% of emissions from waste collection. The plan is designed to improve the solid waste management peculiar to the Montnegre- Corredor Natural Park (Catalonian). (Author)

    In the coordinated project DISPOSAL OF SOLID RESIDUES FROM COAL it is included the project Coal Mining Spoil Heap Management as Urban Solid Waste Dump. The main target of this project consisted of determining the viability of using coal mining spoil heaps, as controlled dubbish dump of urban solid wastes. The working plan to achieve this objective was composed of the following stages: 1. Urban solid wastes characterization. 2. Methodology to be followed for the selection of coal mining spoil heaps as controlled dump of urban solid wastes. 2.1 Classification and preliminary assessment of the possibility of using spoil heaps as urban solid waste dumps (APT/NON APT). 2.2 Realization of geological, geotechnical, hydrogeological and environmental studies applied to the spoil heaps classified as APT. 2.3 Analysis of the compatibility of the mining activity with the urban solid wastes dumped on the spoil heap. 2.4 Analysis of the use of coal mining wastes in the rubbish dump operative life. 3. Extraction of conclusions. The works were focused in the Leon province. As result of the researches we obtained the following results and conclusions: In the areas studied, only two emplacements are optima to dump urban solid wastes; spoil heap n. 13. Roguera Mine (Cinera-Matallana) and the open pit mine n. 4, Las Chaviadas, in Villablino. The active spoil heap use as controlled rubbish dump can cause, if not managed adequately, several coperating and occupational problems to the mine and to the company that manages the urban solid wastes. The abandoned spoil heap utilisation is difficult due to the problems that would arise when conditioning the site to be use as rubbish dump. The use of abandoned open pit mines, as controlled rubbish dump is feasible if geological, geotechnical, hydrogeological and environmental studies support it. It's possible the use of the coal mining wastes in the different operatives phases of the controlled rubbish dump. The evaluation methodology developed during the project is considered satisfactory, therefore we don't consider necessary to prosecute the research in this field. The methodology could be used in the future for looking for suitable rubbish dumps in other mining areas, especially when no other adequate locations are available, even though such need is not apparent by now.

    This work presents the development of membranes with potential use in Proton Exchange Fuel Cells (PEM-FC), consisting of hybrid materials based on poly(dimethylsiloxane), crosslinked with tetraethyl orthosilicate (TEOS), and reinforced with silicon carbide and phosphotungstic acid. The membrane series PDMS/TEOS/SiC/PWA were prepared by the reaction of PDMS and TEOS, 70/30% proportions in mass, catalyzed by dibutyltin dilaurate. SiC was incorporated in a 25% proportion, and PWA in varied proportions (5, 10, 15 and 20%), by weight. The membranes were characterized by Thermo-Gravimetric Analysis (TGA), X-ray Diffraction, Scanning Electron Microscopy and impedance spectroscopy. SiC and PWA addition to the membrane increased both structure organization and material crystallinity. The insertion of PWA provided an increase in the conductivity. However, maximum conductivity was obtained with concentration levels above 10%. The insertion of SiC associated with the PWA did not influence the conductivity for concentrations between 10 and 20%.

    The fabrication and characterization of Nafion - TiO{sub 2} composites, and the use of such electrolytes in PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) fuel cell operating at high temperature (130 deg C) were studied. The operation of a PEM fuel cell at such high temperature is considered as an effective way to promote fast electrode reaction kinetics, high diffusional transport, and high tolerance to the carbon monoxide fuel contaminant. The polymer Nafion{sup R} is the most used electrolyte in PEM fuel cells due to its high proton conductivity. However, the proton transport in Nafion is dependent on the water content in the polymeric membrane. The need of absorbed water in the polymer structure limits the operation of the fuel cell to temperatures close to 100 deg C, above which Nafion exhibits a fast decrease of the ionic conductivity. In order to increase the performance of the electrolyte operating at high temperatures, Nafion-TiO{sub 2} composites have been prepared by casting. The addition of titania hygroscopic particles to the polymeric matrix aims at the enhancement of the humidification of the electrolyte at temperatures above 100 deg C. Three types of titania particles with different specific surface area and morphology have been investigated. Nafion-based composites with the addition of titania nanoparticles, in the 2.5-15 wt.% range, with nearly spherical shape and specific surface area up to approx. 115 m{sup 2}g{sup -1} were found to have higher glass transition temperature than the polymer. Such an increase improves the stability of the electrolyte during the fuel cell operation at high temperatures. The addition of titania-derived nanotubes results in a pronounced increase of the performance of PEM fuel cell operating at 130 deg C. In this composite, the high specific surface area and the tubular shape of the inorganic phase are responsible for the measured increase of both the absorption and retention of water of the composite electrolyte. Nonetheless, the polarization curves of fuel cell using the composite electrolytes exhibited an increase of the ohmic polarization associated with the addition of the insulating titania particles. As the chemical structure of Nafion was observed to be insensitive to the addition of the inorganic particles, the high performance of the composite electrolytes is a result of competing effects: the decrease of the electrical conductivity and a higher thermal stability or water absorption/retention capacity. The experimental results suggest that the Nafion-TiO{sub 2} composites are promising electrolytes for PEM fuel cells operating at temperatures above approx. 100 deg C. (author)

    We worked with an apparatus and process patented for Jaime Vite Torres, in the United States of America, for extracting simultaneously toxic and value metals from foundry sands. In this research, we used similar devices to remove toxic metals of waste water sludge. Generation of solid wastes including dangerous in 1992 in Mexico were 450,000 ton/day in accordance with the National Institut of Ecology (INE-SEDESOL 1992). With the apparatus and process of the present work we obtained two important points, whic are: (a) the recovery of metals in solution which can be recycled and, (b) an important reduction in the toxic of the wastes which one treated can be handled as normal waste with important savings. From among the metals which it is possible to recover one can mention among others: Au, Pt, Ag, Cr, Mn, Co, Pb, Al, Ni and others. (Author).

    To be discarded into the environment, cassava wastewater, generated during the processing of the cassava root, needs to be dealt with trying to reduce its organic load and total solids, harmful to water bodies. As for crude glycerin, a byproduct of biodiesel production, need alternatives to its destination, because the cost to its purification is often not feasible, preventing its use by pharmaceutical and food industries. In this study we chose to anaerobic digestion to treat manipueira assessing the behavior of the reactor with the addition of glycerin. The reactor was constructed of PVC with 60cm long, 20cm in diameter and a volume of 8.38 L, and HRT was 5 days. Three treatments were applied: T1, only manipueira, T2 with 0.25% glycerol and T3, with 0.50%. The three treatments showed a great reduction of organic load (above 90%) and higher with the addition of 0.25% crude glycerine. The highest mean removal of solids and total volatile solids occurred in treatment with 0.50% crude glycerine, being 84.18% and 91.41% respectively. (author)

    PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) fuel cell uses a simple chemical reaction to combine hydrogen and oxygen into water, producing electric current in the process. It works something like reversed electrolysis: at the anode, hydrogen molecules give up electrons, forming hydrogen ions (this process is made possible by the platinum catalyst). The proton exchange membrane allows protons to flow through, but not electrons. As a result, the hydrogen ions flow directly through the proton exchange membrane to the cathode, while the electrons flow through an external circuit. As they travel to the cathode through the external circuit, the electrons produce electrical current. At the cathode, the electrons and hydrogen ions combine with oxygen to form water. In a fuel cell, hydrogen's natural tendency to oxidize and form water produces electricity and useful work. No pollution is produced and the only byproducts are water and heat. The huge advance on materials development combined with the growth demand of lower impact on environment is placing the fuel cells on the top of the most promising technologies world-wide. They are becoming in medium term feasible alternatives for energy generators up to energy plants of few MW. (author)

    The study of the movement of sediments in sea beds, is necessary when one plans to build a port. Among the techniques used for this studies, it is the radiotracer balance that gives an useful estimation of the quantity of sediment that it moves per day and by meter (perpendicular to the displacement). The main objectives of this work are: to) to present the characteristics of the obtaining of the used radiotracer, describing details those used safety measures, b) to describe the handling of the radiotracer and it radiological safety, during the transport and injection in the sea bottom, c) description of the detection way and the used equipment, d) to describe the information processing obtained in the field and finally, e) the estimate of the solid consumption and the determination of the direction and speed of displacement of those sediments in the sea bottom, in front of the Tabasco coast, to be used jointly with the information obtained by means of other techniques so that one can make a good planning of the operations of dredging during the construction and later on the maintenance of the Dos Bocas marine terminal. The first step is to obtain the radiotracer that in this case was sand of uniform grain metric, marked superficially with Gold-198. The second step is to transport the sand to the place of interest, to place it in the injection equipment and to deposit it in the sea bottom. The third step is to detect the radiotracer in the sea bed, from a craft that drags a sled, which takes mounted a scintillation detector of sodium iodide activated with thallium NaI(Tl) (probe). The fourth step is to process the field information and to obtain the corresponding results. (Author)

    In this work, the ceramic films of LSM/YSZ (strontium-doped lanthanum manganite/Yttria-stabilized zirconia) and LSM used as cathodes of the solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) are conformed by the wet powder spraying technique. The composite LSM/YSZ was obtained by the solid mixture technique and LSM by the citrate technique. For the formation of the LSM/YSZ and LSM ceramic films was necessary the preparation of dispersed ceramic suspensions for the deposition in YSZ substrate, used as electrolyte of the CaCOS. These powders were conformed using an aerograph for the deposition of the LSM/YSZ and LSM thin films of approximately 40 microns. The half-cells had been characterized by X-ray diffractometry (XRD), identifying the phases hexagonal (LSM) and cubica (YSZ). And electronic scanning electron microscopy (SEM) was used to evaluate the adherence and porosity of the ceramic films according to the characteristics of the cathode. (author)

    This work evaluates the behavior of wastes with naturally occurring radionuclides as generated by the mineral industry and their final disposal in landfills. An integrated methodology is used to predict the performance of an industrial landfill for disposal of wastes containing NORM/TENORM, and to define acceptable amounts that can be disposed at the landfill using long-term environmental assessment. The governing equations for radionuclide transport are solved analytically using the generalized integral transform technique. Results obtained for each compartment of the biogeosphere are validated with experimental results or compared to other classes of solutions. An impact analysis is performed in order to define the potential consequences of a landfill to the environment, considering not only the engineering characteristics of the waste deposit but also the exposure pathways and plausible scenarios in which the contaminants could migrate and reach the environment and the human population. The present work permits the development of a safety approach that can be used to derive quantitative waste acceptance criteria for the disposal of NORM/TENORM waste in landfills. (author)

    Solar thermal systems designed for domestic hot water and space heating, must be dimensioned on a larger scale than for purely domestic hot water. In summer, when there are many days when no heating is required, the oversized collector area leads to frequent stagnancy situations. In order to use the excess of collector area in summer, a solar desiccant cooling system can be integrated in the solar thermal system. This paper study such combination, using computer simulations with the program TRNSYS, Klein(2000). (Author)

    Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) stand out as the most promising today's energy conversion technologies. In the development of cathode materials for SOFC, calcium cobaltate (Ca3Co4O9, C349) appears as a potential alternative to traditional lanthanum manganites. In this work, C349 was prepared via solid state reaction of stoichiometric mixtures containing CaCO3 from mollusk shells, in natura (M1) and heat treated at 550 ° C (M2), and Co3O4 obtained by citrate method. The M1 and M2 mixtures were calcined at 800 (powder) and 900 ° C (tablets) for 12 h. The crystal structure and phase composition of the powder and the reaction products were studied by X-ray diffraction Rietveld refinement of the diffraction data. The results showed the formation of free C349 secondary stages, showing a good alternative to use waste from seafood shells as raw material for obtaining high-value ceramics.(author)

    Colloidal processing is a widely used technique to produce ceramic components. Several papers have been published in the last decade presenting the possibility to obtain aqueous concentrate stable suspension of metallic particles from their pH control and using dispersants. This paper aims to study the production of a steel with austenitic microstructure using elemental iron (Fe) and nickel (Ni) powders via colloidal route. For this, Zeta potential measurements were performed between pH 2 and 12 to Fe30Ni wt% composition. Aqueous suspensions reached solids concentrations of up to 45% v/v and processed by slip casting. The compacts were characterized by density (Archimedes), differential thermal analysis (DTA) and dilatometry. After sintering at 900°C to 1100°C/1h, the sintered bodies presented a microstructure with of annealing twins, porosity less than 10 %v/v approximate Vickers microhardness of 160 HV. (author)

    Performance of a SOFC may be evaluated by using the AC-Impedance and measuring power (P V x I). The objective of this study was to compare the performance of a fuel cell with LSM as a cathode and another one containing an additional functional composite film LSM/YSZ between the LSM and YSZ. Also it was studied variation in second cell resistance and power according to the temperature, hydrogen flux and operation time. For both cells platinum was used as anode. At 800 deg C was observed, in open current circuit, when the composite layer was introduced a decrease in resistance and high power. These results show an improvement of SOFC cathode performance with the introduction of composite LSM/YSZ layer. The maximum performance of the cell was achieved with 100 mL/min hydrogen flow at 800 deg C. The experiments also showed a performance improvement at 850 deg C. The cell behavior was stable during 318 hours of test. (author)

    A matrix separation flow system coupled with total reflection X-ray fluorescence (TXRF) is proposed to remove Ca{sup ++}, Mg{sup ++}, Na{sup +} and K{sup +} major cations from samples containing high amounts of totally dissolved solids, using solid-liquid phases in flow system. This system is assembled with a 1.25 mL column of AG50W-X8 resin (in protonated form) and manual commutator, allowed the separation, addition of internal standard and subsequently a 40 {mu}L aliquot of the eluate was deposited in the reflector support, dried in a furnace for 12 hours at 60 {+-} 5 deg C and analysed by TXRF. All the procedure is carried out in about 90 s and 0.5 mL of sample are required. The proposed approach was applied for determination of As and Se in plant material and sea water samples. When comparing with direct analysis (without separation), a reduction of 2 to 6 times on the limits of detection for these elements was attained. The accuracy of this methodology was satisfactory for As and Se in sea water and Se in rice certified samples. This procedure could be also used for Pb interference removal in the determination of As by X-ray fluorescence. (author)

    Due to the increase in the use of neutron radiation a personal neutron dosemeter based on solid nuclear tracks detector (DSTN) was designed and constructed. The personal dosemeter design consists of three arrangements. The first one consists of a plastic nuclear tracks detector (LR115 or CR39) in contact with a LiF pellet. The second one is the same that above but it placed among two cadmium pellets and, the third one is formed by the alone detector without converter neither neutron absorber. The three arrangements are placed inside a plastic porta detector hermetically closed to avoid the bottom produced by environmental radon whichever both detectors (LR115 and CR39) are sensitive. In this work the former tests realized to that dosemeter are presented. (Author)

    This work presents the results regarding CGG's Waste and Effluents Management Program between February 2003 and April 2004 on M/V CGG HARMATTAN. It main objective is to trace all waste and effluents since its generation until its final disposal. To implement this program CGG has two environmental technicians on board, whose are responsible for supervising the program, as well as educating, training, and optimizing waste and effluents segregation. Furthermore, the company also employs a consultant team to logistic management on shore; whose are responsible for executing, transferring, transporting and yours final disposing. Results show a monthly generation of 7.428 Kg and 97.3 m3 in average for waste and effluents respectively. Data indicates waste generation peaks during port calls. Waste tracing has improved along the year, allowing better control and resulting in value decreasing for port calls. Effluents are constantly generated in the same amount with monthly average of 50.2 m3 for bilge water, 41 m3 for sewage and 6.1 m3 for sludge. The percentage of non-recyclable waste sent to cleaner technology (co-processing and re-use) has been increasing along the year, replacing industrial landfill and incinerator use. Latest numbers already show the first results concerning it (2.2% re-used and 24,5% co-processed of total produced solid garbage). Re -used numbers are resulted from pioneer partnership between CGG and fishermen communities, for their original activity. The reached results and environmental indicators show that program efficiency has been evolving, considering logistic, economic, social and environmental aspects, constantly optimized with measures to increase control.

    This article describes, from an environmental point of view, these factors that are affected by refuse collecting with a mobile vacuum system, a new technology that is imposing in Spanish cities. Vacuum system consists in the suction of refuse through a pipe net to a collection station (Stationary system) or to a truck (Mobil system). The environmental impacts in vacuum system are compared with impacts in conventional system. I mean collecting in containers on the street. In the evaluation of environmental impacts produced by both systems, the Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) has been used. LCA is an objective method for method for evaluating environmental charges associated to a product, process or activity in every stage of his life. The results reveal a global environmental impact lower in conventional system than vacuum system, but benefits in local environmental factors. (Author) 19 refs.

    The suitability of re-using residues marble, remaining from cutting marble, as a source of calcium-oxide, as well as the resultant ashes from the combustion of the wastes generated in the process of manufacturing boards from derivates of wood, as a source of silica, as raw material for the production of calcium silicate products has been determined. First of all, the influence of water has been studied in the initial phase of mixing residues. Marble and ashes have been mixed in molar relation CaO:SiO{sub 2} of 1:1 using two different ways: using a planetary ball mill (while in solid state) or agitating at 90 degree centigrade (2 h) using a 60 wt% of water (while in humid state). Later, both mixtures were sintered at 1100 degree centigrade (24 h). In order to use the obtained calcium-silicates as ceramic insulating thermal materials, the samples were compressed at 15 Tm obtaining bricks from which the technological properties have been studied. The ceramic materials obtained from mixing the residues in dry phase, as well as those obtained in the wet phase, can be used as thermal insulators, showing values of conductivity of 0.18 and 0.12 w/m{sup 2}K, with an elevated resistance to compressive strength.

    A study is presented on the Lanthanum Manganite of (LaMnO{sub 3}) with structure perovsquita type and its potential use as cathode in fuel cells. The mecano-sintesis of lanthanum powder manganites is proposed as a method to maximize the defects, since punctual defects in these materials for applications of cathodes in fuel cells are required. Intrinsic precise defects were introduced in the lanthanum manganite mixing lanthanum oxide with manganese oxide (with different numbers of oxidation). In addition, extrinsic defects were introduced doping the of lanthanum manganites with 15 and 20% of strontium in lanthanum sites. A comparison between the final structural properties of the manganites obtained by different processes is presented: a) high energy milling in one pass in a SPEX8000 and thermal treatment, b) milling in two passes by milling of high energy in a SPEX8000D and thermal treatment and c) by thermal activation. A study is presented of the main variables that take part in the mecanosintesis technique, as the volumetric relations between the powders and balls, etc. the relation in weight between dusts and the balls, etc. Experiments of pre-consolidation of synthesized powders took place using vegetal starches of native maize, potatoes, wheat and waxy wheat. The best results were obtained with native maize starch considering the distribution of open micro porosity without losing the shape of the test tubes presented. The test tubes in green were sintered at 1000, 1100 and 1300 degrees Celsius. The largest grain size was obtained in samples processed to 1300 degrees Celsius and a greater open porosity at 1100 degrees Celsius. The measurement results of the electrical conductivity in all the doped samples of LaMnO{sub 3} and without doping were carried out from 70 to 1173 degrees Kelvinand showed values in the rank of 100-25 S/cm. The highest total conductivity was obtained for samples of manganites prepared from MnO with 20% of strontium in lanthanum sites and the minor for LaMnO{sub 3} prepared from MnO and without doping. The reactivity of the cathodes perovsquita type was studied with zirconium preparing mixtures 1:1 by weight of the ground of manganites of lanthanum with zirconium partially stabilized with yttrium and treated at 1000, 1100, 1200 and 1300 degrees Celsius. Almost all the resulting mixtures showed the formation of the compound type pyrocloride La{sub 2}Zr{sub 2}O{sub 7}, and in addition those doped with strontium also showed the presence of SrZrO{sub 3}. The formation of La{sub 2}Zr{sub 2}O{sub 7} was managed to avoid it in samples prepared from mixtures of MnO{sub 2} with atomic 15% atomic of Sr. these samples have a mixture of manganite phases and manganese. Finally, the stabilization of the cubical phase of the zirconium with manganite of lanthanum in all the mixtures was observed. [Spanish] Se presenta un estudio sobre la manganita de lantano (LaMnO{sub 3}) con estructura tipo perovsquita y su uso potencial como catodo en celdas de combustible. La mecanosintesis de polvo de manganitas de lantano se propone como un metodo para maximizar los defectos, ya que se requieren defectos puntuales en estos materiales para aplicaciones de catodos en celdas de combustible. Defectos puntuales intrinsecos fueron introducidos en la manganita de lantano mezclando oxido de lantano con oxido de manganeso (con diferentes numeros de oxidacion). Ademas se introdujeron defectos extrinsecos dopando las manganitas de lantano con 15 y 20% at de estroncio en sitios de lantano. Se presenta una comparacion entre las propiedades estructurales finales de las manganitas obtenidas por diferentes procesos: a) molienda de alta energia en un paso en un SPEX8000D, b) en dos pasos por molienda de alta energia en un SPEX8000 y tratamiento termico y c) por activacion termica. Se presenta un estudio de las principales variables que intervienen en la tecnica de mecanosintesis, como las relaciones volumetricas entre las bolas y los viales, la relacion en peso entre los polvos y las bolas, etc. Experimentos de preconsolidacion de los polvos sintetizados se efectuaron utilizando almidones vegetales de maiz nativo, papa, trigo y waxy. Los mejores resultados se obtuvieron con almidon de maiz nativo considerando la distribucion de micro porosidad abierta sin perder la forma de las probetas presentadas. Las probetas en verde se sinterizaron a 1000, 1100 y 1300 grados dentigrados. El tamano de grano mayor se obtuvo en muestras procesadas a 1300 grados centigrados y una mayor porosidad abierta a 1100 grados centigrados. Los resultados de la medicion de la conductividad electrica en todas las muestras de LaMnO{sub 3} dopadas y sin dopar se llevaron a cabo de 70 a 1173 grados Kelvin y mostraron valores en el rango de 100-25 S/cm. La conductividad total mayor se obtuvo para muestras de manganitas preparadas a partir de MnO con 20% de estroncio en sitios de lantano y la menor para LaMnO{sub 3} preparadas a partir de MnO y sin dopar. Se estudio la reactividad de los catodos tipo perovsquita con zirconio preparando mezclas 1:1 en peso de las mezclas molidas de manganitas de lantano con zirconio parcialmente estabilizada con ytria y tratadas termicamente a 1000, 1100, 1200 y 1300 grados centigrados. Casi todas las mezclas resultantes mostraron la formacion del compuesto tipo pirocloro La{sub 2}Zr{sub 2}O{sub 7}, y ademas aquellas dopadas con estroncio tambien mostraron la presencia de SrZrO{sub 3}. La formacion de La{sub 2}Zr{sub 2}O{sub 7} se logro evitar en muestras preparadas a partir de mezclas de MnO{sub 2} con 15% atomico de Sr. Estas muestras tienen mezcla de fases de manganita y manganato. Finalmente, se observo la estabilizacion de la fase cubica del zirconio con manganita de lantano en todas las mezclas.

    Nano composites of poly(ethylene-co-vinyl acetate)/silica (SiO{sub 2}) with dimensions of ca. 40 nm were prepared via solution intercalation employing chloroform as a solvent. They were mainly characterized with nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) employing carbon-13 (polymeric matrix), silicon-29 (nanoparticles) and through the determination of the proton spin-lattice relaxation time in the rotating frame (T{sub 1{rho}H}) (polymer matrix). From the NMR results it was inferred that up to 5% of silica in mass a well dispersed nano composite was obtained, owing to a strong interaction between silica and the EVA matrix. (author)

    Fuel cells directly and efficiently convert the chemical energy of a fuel into electrical energy. Of the various types of fuel cells, the solid oxide (Sofc), combine the advantages in environmentally benign energy generation with fuel flexibility. However, the need for high operating temperatures (800 - 1000 grades C) has resulted in high costs and major challenges in relation to the compatibility the cathode materials. As a result, there have been significant efforts in the development of intermediate temperature Sofc (500 - 700 grades C). A key obstacle for operation in this temperature range is the limited activity of traditional cathode materials for electrochemical reduction oxygen. In this article, the progress of recent years is discussed in cathodes for Sofc perovskite structure (ABO{sub 3}), more efficient than the traditionally used La{sub 1-x}Sr{sub x}MnO{sub 3-δ} (LSM) or (La, Sr) CoO{sub 3}. Such is the case of mixed conductors (MIEC) double perovskite structure (A A B{sub 2}O{sub 5+δ}) using different doping elements as La, Sr, Fe, Ti, Cr, Sm, Co, Cu, Pr, Nd, Gd, dy, Mn, among others, which could improve the operational performance of existing cathode materials, promoting the development of optimized intermediate temperature Sofc designs.

    The objective of this study is to analyze the generation and disposal of solid waste from the exploration and production activities of oil and natural gas in Brazilian waters. We used data from the implementation reports of pollution control project of the activities licensed by IBAMA. During 2009 the activities related to exploration and production of offshore oil and gas produced a total of 44,437 tons of solid waste, with the main waste generated corresponding to: oily waste (16,002 t); Metal uncontaminated (11,085 t); contaminated waste (5630 t), non recycling waste (4935 t); Wood uncontaminated (1,861 t), chemicals (1,146 t). Considering the total waste generated by activities during the period analyzed, it was observed that 54.3% are made up of waste Class I (hazardous waste), 27.9% of Class II wastes (waste non-hazardous non-inert); and 17.8% of waste Class IIB (non-hazardous and inert waste). The results obtained in this work enabled the scenario of waste generation by the E and P offshore activities. As a result, the survey serves as a starting point for monitoring the progress in implementing the projects sought Pollution Control of licensed projects, as well as support the monitoring of reflexes arising from the intensification of activities in certain regions.

    Fuel cells produce electrical current from the electrochemical combustion of a gas or liquid (H2, CH4, C2H5OH, CH3OH, etc.) inserted into the anode cell. An important class of fuel cells is the SOFC (Solid Oxide Cell Fuel). It has a ceramic electrolyte that transports protons (H +) or O-2 ions and operating at high temperatures (500-1000 °C) and mixed conductive electrodes (ionic and electronic) ceramics or cermets. This work aims to develop anodes for fuel cells of solid oxide (SOFC) in order to direct operations with renewable fuels and strategic for the country (such as bioethanol and biogas). In this context, it becomes important to study in relation to the ceramic materials, especially those that must be used in high temperatures. Some types of double perovskites such as Sr2MgMoO6 (or simply SMMO) have been used as anodes in SOFC. In this study were synthesized by the polymeric precursor method, analyzed and characterized different ceramic samples of families SMMO, doped with Nb, this is: Sr2 (MgMo)1-xNbxO6 with 0 ≤ x ≤ 0.2. The materials produced were characterized by various techniques such as, thermal analysis, X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy, and electrical properties determined by dc and ac measurements in a wide range of temperature, frequency and partial pressure of oxygen. The results of this work will contribute to a better understanding of advanced ceramic properties with mixed driving (electronic and ionic) and contribute to the advancement of SOFC technology operating directly with renewable fuels.

    The ceramic material, strontium-doped lanthanum manganite (La{sub 0,85}Sr{sub 0,15}MnO{sub 3} - LSM), has been used as cathode in Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs). The cathode attainment as component of the SOFCs has been studied for diverse routes of synthesis and thin films forming in Yttria-stabilized zirconia (ZrO{sub 2}/Y{sub 2}O{sub 3} - YSZ) electrolyte. In this work, the LSM was synthesized by the citrate technique and deposited in YSZ substrate using the forming technique wet powder spraying. Rheological studies of suspensions and chemical, physical and microstructural characterizations of LSM powders were made, aiming at the deposition for thin films formation until 50 mum. The half unit cells LSM/YSZ sintered were characterized by scanning electron microscopy, for verification of porosity and adherence. In this sense, this work is a contribution for production of porous cathode using the forming technique wet powder spraying in the SOFCs. (author)

    Fuel cells are electrochemical devices that convert chemical energy into electrical energy. These devices are basically divided into interconnectors, electrolyte, anode, and cathode. Recently, studies of improvements in microstructural and morphological properties of calcium cobaltate (Ca{sub 3}Co{sub 4}O{sub 9}, C349) has been made regarding its potential use as SOFC cathode for intermediate temperature. Gelatin has proven to be effective as a polymerizing agent in the synthesis of nanocrystalline materials. This work reports the synthesis and characterization of the C349 cathode using commercial gelatin. The structural properties of the material were determined by X-ray diffraction (XRD). Morphological characterization was performed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The results showed the formation of the crystalline phase at 900 °C, indicating the effectiveness of the gelatin in the preparation of cathodes for SOFC. (author)

    The search for materials with high added value, high applicability and sustainability, motivates innovations in all areas of engineering. In this context, so-called doped carbides, ceramic and metal compounds are included. This work proposes the synthesis and characterization of tungsten carbide doped cobalt (WC-Co) through the gas-solid reaction in a rotating bed reactor. The production stages of the material are: precursor synthesis by wetting, drying at 80 deg C, characterization of the precursor by MEV, DRX and FRX, gas-solid reaction at 750 deg C in a reducing atmosphere of CH{sub 4} / H{sub 2} in a rotary reactor at 34 rpm and characterization of the reaction product by the techniques already mentioned. The results showed that tungsten carbide powders were produced with cobalt inserted into the structure, with high surface area, nanometric grains and with potential for applications in the areas of catalysis, reactors and fuel cells, showing the relevance of this type of research.

    This paper presents the results obtained from a study of the radiation induced oxidation of crystalline ferrous ammonium sulfate with gamma rays at 295 K, 263 K and 77 K and dose from 0 to 300 kGy. The radiation induced decomposition of ferrous ammonium sulfate has been studied by the dissolution of the irradiated salt in 0,8 N sulfuric acid. The main product is Fe{sup 3+} and molar concentration of ferric ion was determined spectrophotometrically in the UV region at 304 nm. The optical density values showed a linear dependence with dose, indicating that the data obtained might be used to create a calibrating curve. Color in irradiated salt changes from blue to green, yellow and orange according to the absorbed dose. The accuracy and the reproducibility of the system were tested. In addition, some other characteristics make possible the use of this system as a dosimeter, similar to Fricke chemical dosemeter, at low temperatures and high dose. (Author)

    There is a wide variation in the amount of particulate material in sea water by a great number of reasons. The most well-known contaminant is the organic material derived from seaweed or fish spawning causing seasonally sensitive variations in the water quality treated and injected for enhance oil recovery. This paper presents the results of one year the water monitoring form water sampled at 30 meters deep in the Roncador field, which is located 125 km from the coast with a depth of 1290 meters. It was observed the water seasonal variation with peaks in summer and winter. The monitoring was done through particle counting and distribution analysis and total solids in suspension. It was noted that even in peak with largest amount of particles and greater quantity of solid in suspension the particles had remained concentrated in the range bellow 25 {mu}m. For that reason the life of final filter elements may vary and pre-filters are many times ineffective and sometimes even bypassed due to frequent clogging and not to do the protecting job of the final filter.

    This work has for objective to investigate and to characterize the microstructural development of lanthanum chromite-based ceramics (LaCrO{sub 3}) doped with earth alkaline metals, correlating the microstructural parameters (mainly the densification level) and processing parameters with the electrothermal properties reached. Lanthanum chromite-based ceramic systems doped with earth-alkaline metals (Ca, Mg and Sr) had been produced from respective metallic nitrates by solid state reactions process. The phase compositions were evaluated by X-ray diffraction and the densification level by Archimedes method. The microstructural characterization was effected by scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy and thermal analysis techniques. Electrical tests were used to evaluate the electrical conductivity of the studied ceramics. The obtained results corroborate the literature comments concerning the difficulty of lanthanum chromite-based ceramics with high densification level and evidence the great influence of the nature of the dopants on the sintering mechanism and the microstructural and electric characteristics of the produced ceramics. The best ones results, in terms of densification and electrical conductivity, had been gotten through multiple doping with calcium and strontium, and in sintering temperature conditions lower that the normally considered to pure or monodoped lanthanum chromite-based ceramics.

    The nuclear power plant of Laguna Verde located in the Gulf of Mexico, completes in this 2009, nineteen years to produce by nuclear means 4.78% of the electric power that Mexico requires daily. During this time, the Unit 1 has generated more of 88.85 million mega watt-hour and the Unit 2 more of 69.48 million mega watt-hour with an availability average of 83.55%. Derived of their operation cycles, the nuclear power plant has generated (as any other installation of its type) radioactive wastes of low activity that at the moment are temporarily stored in the site. Due to the life cycle of the nuclear power plant, actually has become necessary to begin a project series focused to continue guaranteeing the storage of these wastes, guarantee that is a license requirement for the operation of this nuclear installation before the National Commission of Nuclear Security and Safeguards. The Federal Commission of Electricity beginning a project that allows continue guaranteeing space of sufficient storage for the wastes that the nuclear power plant of Laguna Verde could generate for the rest of its useful life, this project consisted on a process of physical volume reduction of dry solid radioactive wastes denominated super compacting, it has made possible to reduce the volume that these wastes occupy in the temporary storage noted Dry Solid Radioactive Wastes Deposit located inside the site that occupies the nuclear power plant of Laguna Verde. This work presents the super compacting results, as well as a description of the realization of this task until concluding with the super compacting of 5,854 drums with dry solid radioactive waste of low activity. We will enunciate which were the radiological controls that the Department of Radiological Protection of the nuclear power plant of Laguna Verde applied to this work that was realized for first time in Mexico and the nuclear power plant.

    In this paper a hybrid solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) system, applying a combined cycle using gas turbine for rational decentralized energy production is analyzed. The relative concepts about the fuel cell are presented, followed by some chemical and technical information such as the change of Gibbs free energy in isothermal fuel oxidation directly into electricity. This represents a very high fraction of the lower heating value (LHV) of a hydrocarbon fuel. In the next step a methodology for the study of SOFC and gas turbine system is developed, considering the electricity and steam production for a hospital. This methodology is applied to energetic analysis. Natural gas is considered as a fuel. A Sankey Diagram shows that the hybrid SOFC system is a good opportunity to strengthen the decentralized energy production in Brazil. It is necessary to consider that the cogeneration in this version also is a good technical alternative, demanding special methods of design, equipment selection and contractual deals associated to electricity and fuel supply.

    This work presents the results regarding CGG's Waste and Effluents Management Program between February 2003 and April 2004 on M/V CGG HARMATTAN. It main objective is to trace all waste and effluents since its generation until its final disposal. To implement this program CGG has two environmental technicians on board, whose are responsible for supervising the program, as well as educating, training, and optimizing waste and effluents segregation. Furthermore, the company also employs a consultant team to logistic management on shore; whose are responsible for executing, transferring, transporting and yours final disposing. Results show a monthly generation of 7.428 Kg and 97.3 m3 in average for waste and effluents respectively. Data indicates waste generation peaks during port calls. Waste tracing has improved along the year, allowing better control and resulting in value decreasing for port calls. Effluents are constantly generated in the same amount with monthly average of 50.2 m3 for bilge water, 41 m3 for sewage and 6.1 m3 for sludge. The percentage of non-recyclable waste sent to cleaner technology (co-processing and re-use) has been increasing along the year, replacing industrial landfill and incinerator use. Latest numbers already show the first results concerning it (2.2% re-used and 24,5% co-processed of total produced solid garbage). Re -used numbers are resulted from pioneer partnership between CGG and fishermen communities, for their original activity. The reached results and environmental indicators show that program efficiency has been evolving, considering logistic, economic, social and environmental aspects, constantly optimized with measures to increase control.

    The paper describes the physical and chemical characterization of fly ashes from municipal solid waste incinerator. The objective is to explore potential applications of this residue in construction products. The results show the no pozzolanic nature of the fly ashes, so its utilization as mineral admixture is discarded. however, the study reveals the expansive character of the fly ashes when are mixed with water. The results of X-ray diffraction confirm the presence of metallic aluminium in the fly ash as the origin of this expansion. This chemical reaction generates a considerable amount of hydrogen, inflammable gas. Three ways to avoid this reaction are proposed. On the other way, the expansive behaviour of the fly ashes allow to explore its possible application to produce cellular mortars, as the traditional production of these mortars have several similarities with the reaction of fly ash and water.

    The incentive for consumption and production in large quantity in modern society generates enormous amounts of urban solid residues in the form of municipal solid waste (MSW). With the intention of reducing these residues of the municipal waste tips and to generate energy, briquettes with mixtures of MSW and residues of Eucalyptus grandis were produced. The briquettes were manufactured with 0, 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25% of MSW in the mixture with wood waste and 12% of moisture content. The analyzed parameters used to choose the best treatments were combustion analysis versus ash content, mechanical strength and energy content. The briquettes up to 10% of MSW showed low resistance, and above 15% showed large increase in ash content. Therefore, the treatment that fulfilled the requirements for combustion versus ash content and mechanical resistance was of at least 15% of MSW, since the source of the ash is unidentified. Considering the net energy content, the best treatment was 25% of MSW, with 17,175 kJ kg{sup -1}. Nevertheless, it is strongly advised that further studies related to gas emissions are necessary.

    Despite the growing needs at a local/regional and international levels for accurate and comparable data on municipal waste impact and composition, so far it has not been possible to develop one uniform tool within the European Union for acquiring the relevant information for waste management planning and monitoring. The purpose of the S.W.A. Tool Project, funded by the EC, is to develop a set of standardised methodologies to assist in the formulation and implementation of waste analyses, so as to enhance data accuracy and comparability. The S.W.A.-Tool Consortium involves various European partners from seven cities (Berlin, Germany, Bilbao, Spain, Brescia, Italy. Newcastle upon Type, U. K., Vienna, Austria, Cracow, Poland, Brasov, Romania) and from a wide range of backgrounds in municipal waste management. At the research phase, a standardised methodological tool was developed to define statistical standards, to establish a standardised sorting catalogue and guidelines for selection level of random samples and stratification of the parent statistical population and the selection criteria to enable the user to choose the most appropriate analysis design for their specific objectives and circumstances.

    This work evaluated the formation of paraffin deposits as a function of the chemical constitution of the pipeline walls. Two low cost polymers, available in the Brazilian market either as solids or as extruded films, were studied: polypropylene (PP) and high density polyethylene (PEAD). The static interfacial interactions were evaluated by contact angle and showed that the interaction between crude oil and PEAD was 16% stronger than with PP. For the dynamic studies a flow cell was developed in order to observe mainly the boundary layers. The paraffin deposits were identified through the decrease of the intermolecular alignment within the flowing oil. PEAD proved to be 43% more efficient that PP in interacting with the crude oil. Under flowing conditions, the chemical interfacial effects became more pronounced due to the molecular effects overcoming the hydrodynamic effects. Photos of the cell walls showed globular paraffin deposits on PEAD and their absence on PP. As both polymers are linear, the higher tendency of PEAD to yield paraffin deposits was attributed to the absence of lateral branches of methyl groups. There by PP was found to be better than PEAD to avoid paraffin deposition. (author)

    In this research three structured packing materials were characterized: a metallic, polymeric and ceramic. The study of the physical properties of structured packing materials, and their behavior within the absorption column allowed to suggest a gas-liquid contactor material with higher mechanical and chemical resistance, which is more efficient for the treatment of sour gases from brick kilns. To study the mechanical properties (hardness, tension and elastic modulus) were used procedures of the American Society for Testing Materials, as well as resistance to corrosion. The geometric characteristics, the density, the melting temperature and the weight were tested with procedures of the measuring equipment. The structure was evaluated by X-ray diffraction, morphology was observed by scanning electron microscopy coupled to a sound of dispersive energy of X-ray, to quantify elemental chemical composition. The interaction of gas-liquid contactors materials in presence of CO{sub 2}, was evaluated in three absorption columns built of Pyrex glass, with a diameter of 0.1016 m, of 1.5 m in height, 0.0081m{sup 2} cross-sectional area, packed with every kind of material: metallic, polymeric and ceramic, processing a gas flow of 20m{sup 3} / h at 9% CO{sub 2}, in air and a liquid flow to 30% of Mea 5 L/min. The results of the properties studied were by the metallic material: more density, higher roughness, the greater tensile strength, greater resistance to corrosion in the presence of an aqueous solution of monoethanolamine (Mea) to 30% by weight, improvement more efficient absorption of CO{sub 2}, and higher modulus of elasticity. The polymeric material was characterized to have lower hardness, lower roughness, lower density, lower melting temperature, greater resistance to corrosion in the presence of 1 N H{sub 2}SO{sub 4} aqueous solution, and allowed an absorption efficiency of CO{sub 2}, 2% lower than that presented by the material metallic. The ceramic material found to be the hardest of the three materials studied, the higher density, lower modulus of elasticity, the lower corrosion resistance in the presence of 1 N H{sub 2}SO{sub 4} aqueous solution. The study of material properties, revealed that the metallic material is more resistant to abrasive wear, the more tenacious, more chemically resistant in the presence of Mea aqueous solution of 30% by weight, as well as the most efficient, improvement an absorption of 95% CO{sub 2}, followed by the polymeric material, which is the most ductile, the more elastic, and its low hardness is susceptible to scratching and abrasion, its hydrophobicity, it takes longer to form the liquid film in the absorption process, improved a 93% absorption, was the most chemically resistant in the presence of 1 N H{sub 2}SO{sub 4} aqueous solution. The ceramic allowed 84% absorption, was the most rigid fragile, susceptible to wear and its porosity reduce the contact area between the liquid and gas, resulting be the contactor that improves minus efficiency in the absorption process.

    In this work a comparison of experimental and simulated relative doses of a clinical brachytherapy source was performed. A 5 x 5 x 7 cm{sup 3} phantom with a modified MAGIC-f gel was irradiated using a clinical {sup 192}Ir source and read using Magnetic Resonance Imaging. The Monte Carlo simulation package PENELOPE was used to simulate the dose distributions of the same radiation source. The dose distributions were obtained in two planes perpendicular to the source: one passing through the source's center and the other at 0.5 cm away from the source's center. The higher differences found between experimental and computational distributions were 12.5% at a point 0.62 cm from the source for the central plane and 8.6% at 1.3 cm from the source to the plane 0.5 cm away from the source's center. Considering the high dose gradient of these dose distributions, the results obtained show that the modified MAGIC-f gel is promising for brachytherapy dosimetry. (author)

    A comparison of experimental and simulated relative doses of a clinical brachytherapy source was performed. A 5 x 5 x 7 cm{sup 3} phantom with a modified MAGIC-f gel was irradiated using a clinical {sup 192}Ir source, Varian, model GammaMed Plus. The phantom was irradiated with 7,5 Gy, commonly used in gynecological treatments. The dose distributions readings were performed 24h after irradiation using Magnetic Resonance Imaging, weighted in T2, with repetition time of 6000 ms, echo-time of 15 ms, 16 echos and 0.40 mm pixel size. The same brachytherapy source was modeled in the Monte Carlo package PENELOPE to obtain dose distributions. The energy cutoff for electrons, photons and positrons was 100 keV, the primary particles condensation parameters remained the same at 0.3. The dose distributions were obtained in two planes perpendicular to the source: one passing through the source’s center and the other at 0.5 cm away from the source’s center in direction of the top of encapsulation. A comparison of the experimental results using the polymeric gel to the computational results showed maximum differences of 12.5%, at 0.62 cm from the source for the central plane, and 6.4% at 0.5 cm from the source for the superior plane. Considering the high dose gradient of these clinical brachytherapy sources, the results obtained in these work show that MAGIC-f gel with modified formulation, is promising for dosimetry in brachytherapy.

    The technology field is nanopowders prominent in science since these materials fall in various sectors regarding their applications. This work aims at the synthesis of aluminum oxide by polymeric precursors in 4:1 ratio of citric acid:metal cation and evaluate the influence of calcination temperature on their structural and morphological characteristics. The samples after reaction were characterized by XRD and thermal analysis. After calcination 500-1200°C the samples were characterized by XRD, SEM and particle size distribution. The results showed that the variation of the calcination temperature is sufficient to achieve a same material with different structural and morphological characteristics. The most stable phase aluminum oxide arose only after calcination at 1100°C, below 900°C, the amorphous material appeared. As regards the morphology, the change was not as significant as compared to the structure. (author)

    This work aims to characterize the structure and morphology of TiO{sub 2}-ZrO{sub 2} powders obtained by polymeric precursor method. For this we studied the following compositions: 0.25, 0.5 and 0.75 moles of Zr and calcined at 800 deg C for one hour. The powders obtained were characterized by XRD, SEM and nitrogen adsorption (BET). The analysis of X-ray diffraction showed that the powders had a phase of TiO{sub 2} in the anatase form and a tetragonal phase of ZrO{sub 2}. The crystallite size was between 8, 13 and 11 nm respectively. The analysis of scanning electron microscopy showed the growth of ZrO{sub 2} nanoparticles and that these comprise spherical agglomerates of less than 100 nm. Particle size determined by the BET ranging 28.1-29.5 nm, showing thereby the character of nanosized powders. (author)

    Oxide fuel cells based on yttria stabilized zirconia (YSZ) operates near 1000 deg C. This high temperature results in physical and chemical degradation of the device. Rare earths doped ceria (REC) based systems can operate at low temperatures due to higher ionic conductivity. However, at low oxygen partial pressure, doped ceria shows n-type electronic conductivity due to reduction of Ce{sup +4} to Ce{sup +3}. Trying to put together the zirconia and ceria advantage, YSZ-REC composites have been investigated. In this work, YSZ-GdDC powders mixtures were prepared and pellets were isostatically pressed. Pellets were sintered 1100-1500 deg C temperature range. Sintered pellets were characterized by density measurements, X-ray diffraction, impedance spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy. The experimental procedure adopted in this work generated solid solutions instead of composite samples. Nevertheless, the composition containing {approx}76 vol.% of YSZ, in spite of the high porosity, showed electrical conductivity similar to pure YSZ. (author)

    Electro-catalysts were prepared using new routes. Chemical Ultrasound Deposition (CUD) method: aqueous solution of nickel nitrate and citric acid was ultrasound vaporized and deposited on heated Ytria-stabilized Zirconia (YSZ). Resin impregnation (IPR) method: nickel oxide and YSZ were mixed, added to phenolic resins, precipitated in acidic water and milled. Wet impregnation method (IMP) was used for comparison: YSZ and an aqueous solution of nickel nitrate and citric acid were mixed, followed by evaporation, drying and calcination. The catalysts were evaluated for methane steam reforming in a quartz reactor. The reactions were conducted for one hour with no significant catalytic activity loss. In reactions with 100 mg of catalyst and a mixture consisting of methane and steam (3:1), IPR catalyst showed activity higher and better stability than those by IMP. On other tests, the reform was conducted with 100 mg of catalyst and methane to steam of 10. The IPR catalyst activity was so high that the reaction approached equilibrium conditions. Anode/electrolyte/cathode units (A/E/C) were prepared with the above catalysts as follows: the anode was a catalyst porous layer; the electrolyte an YSZ dense layer; and the cathode an LSM porous layer; graphite powder formed the material porosity. The two first layers, in powder form, were put in a stainless steel cast, pressed to 4000 bars and sinterized. The cathode layer was subsequently added using tape-casting techniques followed by sintering. A/E/C units showed 40% linear contraction and porosity higher than 20%. For fuel cell tests, A/E/C was mounted in alumina plates with platinum current collectors. Unitary SOF cells were loaded with hydrogen diluted in nitrogen showing opened circuit voltage from circa 700 mV, for the CUD anode, to 350 mV, for the IPR anode. The unitary SOFC was loaded with methane for 15 minutes or longer, with no noticeable voltage loss. At 1300 K the SOFC made with IPR or IMP catalysts showed opened current voltages close to 500 mV, while CUD SOFC measured less approximately 300 mV. In conclusion, the SOFC opened current voltage might be related to the reforming activity of the electro-catalyst used as the anode. (author)

    Carbides' synthesis via gas-solid reaction overcomes many of the difficulties found in other processes, requiring lower temperatures and reaction times than traditional metallurgic routes, for example. In carbides' synthesis in fixed bed reactors (FB) the solid precursor is permeated by the reducing/carburizing gas stream forming a packed bed without mobility. The use of a rotary kiln reactor (RK) adds a mixing character to this process, changing its fluid-particle dynamics. In this work ammonium molybdate was subjected to carbo-reduction reaction (CH4 / H2) in both reactors under the same gas flow (15L / h) and temperature (660 ° C) for 180 minutes. Complete conversion was observed Mo2C (dp = 18.9nm modal particles sizes' distribution) in the fixed bed reactor. In the RK reactor this conversion was only partial (∼ 40%) and Mo2C and MoO3 (34nm dp = bimodal) could be observed on the produced XRD pattern. Partial conversion was attributed to the need to use higher solids loading in the reactor CR (50% higher) to avoid solids to centrifuge. (author)

    Aiming the monitoring of methane (CH{sub 4}) in underground coal mines, the tin oxide (SnO{sub 2}) was synthesis and applied to the development of a MOS sensor (metal oxide semiconductor). Zeolite have been tested as a filter of carbon dioxide (CO{sub 2}) to ensure the selectivity in the detection of CH{sub 4}. Analysis of Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) and X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) indicated a synthesis of nanoscaled structures. The energy band gap showed characteristic values for a potential application of SnO{sub 2} in CH{sub 4} sensors. Analysis of surface area by BET isotherms showed high values for the zeolite 13X and Y, while adsorption tests indicated that the zeolite 13X presents greater adsorption efficiency of CO{sub 2}. The sputtering technique for deposition of the electrodes, as well as the method of drop coating for deposition of SnO{sub 2}, proved effective in developing the sensor. (author)

    The National Hydraulics Laboratory which, in collaboration with the Saclay Nuclear Research Centre, has for several years been devising equipment and techniques for the study of sediment movements by the radioactive tracer method, is now endeavouring to develop a really quantitative method of research. Two river experiments were recently made, the first a study of shingle drifting in the Rhone, the second a study of sand movement in the Niger. The latter experiment was matched by identical experiments carried out on a scale model of the River Niger which the Chatou Laboratory has at its disposal. The experiments used Mn{sup 56} and Na{sup 24} radiation obtained by direct activation of crushed apricot stone, this representing in the scale model the natural sediment of the Niger bed. The Chatou Laboratory and the Saclay Nuclear Study Centre are at present both devoting attention to the application of radioactive tracers in studies with scale models, with the twin aims of: (a) Obtaining a single research tool for use under natural conditions and with scale models in order to gauge the trustworthiness of the model, in the calibration testing stage; (b) Taking advantage of the facilities for direct observation and measurement offered by scale models in order to study prospects of improving the tracer method, with a view particularly to securing quantitative data.

    In the last few years, the Kyoto Protocol had been a subject very debated, at first, in a restricted niche, manly academics and professionals related to the area of climate changes. On 16th February 2005 the Kyoto Protocol entered into force and with this a lot of publicity all over the world, so today is common to hear about it at the mass communications media. The extension of the subject is broad, this work discuss the utilization of one the Kyoto's flexibility mechanisms, to contribute to financing the use of the landfill gas in the solid oxide fuel cells. Among the three mechanisms presented in the Kyoto Protocol, the clean development mechanism (CDM) in article 12, is the only one that can be implemented by non-Annex I countries, the case of Brazil. In other hand, the issue of solid waste in Brazil is critical. Even being illegal, most of the solid waste goes to uncontrolled areas in open air places 'lixoes', causing degradation of the environment and the communities around this areas, and also emission of green house gases (GHG), deregulating the global climate system. Decontaminate this areas and the construction of landfills to replace than, considering the landfill as a bioreactor, and the utilization of the biogas to generate power can improve nowadays picture that we are facing. The utilization of an innovative alternative technology as the solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) instead the conventional technologies will be more efficient and environmentally better. Among other barriers the cost is pointed as the biggest. In this context, the SOFC is the most expensive fuel cell, so the utilization of CDM can contribute to finance the application of this technology. Scenarios were made of 250 kW, 500 kW, 1,000 kW, 5,000 kW and 10,000 kW of installed power using biogas from the Municipal Landfill of Santo Andre. The calculations of the emission factor were done ex ante and ex post according to ACM0002. Comparing the costs of the installed power studied and the calculation of the emission reduction, a potential income, the costs are superior, however, other incomes from the selling of energy and the disposal of solid waste most be taken into account in the process of decision of this type of projects.

    The current paper had as main aim characterize and assess the use viability of a solid waste from sand beneficiation process in the production of ceramic tiles. To determine the main components the solid waste was characterized by X-ray fluorescence and the main crystalline phases were determined by X-ray diffraction. To evaluate the addition effects of the solid waste over the solid waste was introduced into a ceramic composition in proportions of 5% and 10%. The ceramics materials obtained were subjected to the linear retraction, water absorption and flexural strength analysis according to the Brazilian standard NBR 13818 (1997). Additionally, the solid waste and the ceramic materials obtained in this study were classified according to the Brazilian standard NBR 10004 (2004) to assess the potential environmental impact. The main solid waste constituents identified were silicon dioxide and aluminum oxide, respectively 50.2% e 19.2%, distributed in the crystal forms of quartz and kaolinite. The ceramic materials obtained after firing at 1100 deg C, without and with 10% of solid waste presented respectively flexural strength of 13.86 MPa and 14,52Mpa. The results of water absorption without and with addition of 10% of solid waste were respectively 16.96% and 16.63%, both appropriate performances for use in ceramic tiles according to the Brazilian standard NBR 13818 (1997). On the other hand, the ceramic materials obtained with the addition of 10% of solid waste were classified as inert materials according to Brazilian standard NBR 10004 (2004), showing the capability of incorporating solid waste in ceramic materials.

    Mixed oxide ceramics with chemical structure of ABO{sub 3} type are promising candidates for cathodes of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) for performing well on the electrical conductivity and thermal stability. Various methods of preparation have been studied and used for the synthesis of these materials. In this study, SrCoO{sub 3} and La{sub 0,2}Sr{sub 0,8}CoO{sub 3} perovskites were synthesized using gelatin as directing agent with the purpose of producing homogeneous and porous particles. The powders obtained at 350 ° C / 2 h were calcined at 600, 800 and 1000 ° C for 4 hours and characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The results showed that gelatin is a good polymerizing agent for metal ions as the material showed characteristic peaks of perovskite, with good porosity and uniformity. Furthermore, the method of synthesis employed has advantages related to cost and toxicity, which are very low. (author)

    The necessity of energy conservation in Brazilian electric sector, with the intention to diminish the resources of generation investments, has going to use of electric energy conservation programs, being most important PROCEL - a national program of electric conservation energy by ELETROBRAS, and inside this, a national program for public illumination and efficient traffic signaling - named 'Reluz'. This program looks for a more efficient implantation of public lighting systems, that requires the use of lamp technologies that present a greater value in a relation between lumen/watt relation and then beyond providing economy, due to low consumption of electric energy. Besides technologies that are appearing, the inclusion of LED lamps, which offers a great application potential, comes blunting as improvement alternative, being that the next public illumination parks will be able count on these lamps associates to the high-pressure sodium lamps and other types currently used.

    The tetracarboxylic derived of the para-ter-butylcalix[4]arene (B{sub 4}ACEbL{sup 4}) does not exist commercially for what was synthesized and characterized at laboratory level. The separation of the L-tyrosine amino acid was studied by means of a solid-liquid extraction system with the B{sub 4}ACEbL{sup 4} as solid phase, in function of ph (2.5-7.5) and contact time (5 and 15 hours) to temperature of 15-17 grades C. Resulted that the ph and the contact time were decisive in the extraction percentage of water tyrosine. The lowest percentage was 49% to ph 4 and the highest percentage was 61% to ph 7.5 with 15 hours of contact. In a contact time of 5 hours the extraction was inferior to 32% (ph 4) and of 47% to ph 6.5. The europium effect (Eu (III)) was studied to ph acid in the tyrosine separation and was found that the tyrosine extraction is not increased neither decomposes in europium presence, this is simultaneously extracted by the calixarene but it does not enter in competition for the calixarene with the amino acid. The separate solid phases: calixarene-tyrosine was analyzed by Far infrared radiation (Fir), Mid-Infrared (Mir) spectroscopy and luminescence to check the tyrosine presence in the separate solids as well as the nature of the connection calixarene-tyrosine. In this way was possible to check the tyrosine presence and to propose the formed molecular species tyrosine-calixarene, those which interact mainly by means of hydrogen connections and Van der Waals forces. The liquid phases before and after the extraction were analyzed by UV-Vis spectrophotometry and luminescence. The Neutron activation analysis was used to determine the europium content in the solid and liquid phases of extractions in europium presence. The tyrosine degradation also shows dependence with the ph, obtaining 88% degradation to the 24 hours to ph 7.5, while to ph 3 is degraded the 54% of tyrosine present in the sample. The europium presence does not affect the tyrosine extraction but if its photo catalytic degradation, since increases the tyrosine degradation to 85% to ph 3. The solid-liquid system used for separating L-tyrosine of water to sour ph, neutral and basic as well as the system used for its photo catalytic degradation suggests its possible application in the waters decontamination containing tyrosine and its metabolites. Of course that before using as alternative the studied system, a thorough study of the same system will be required and with other parameters that could affect so much in the tyrosine separation as in its photo catalytic degradation.

    Tomo Therapy is a new technique for the cancer treatment; however, the equipment must meet nearly all mechanical and dosimetric characteristics of a conventional linear accelerator for medical use. Daily quality controls are vital to the good operation of the equipment and thus guarantee excellent quality in the daily delivery of treatments. This paper presents the procedure of the dosimetric characterization of a two-dimensional array of 223 solid state detectors, called TomoDose of the Sun Nuclear Company. Dosimetric important criteria are established to perform these checks quickly and accurately. Dosimetric tests proposed are: repeatability, linearity, dependence of Sad and SSD. Some results are compared with readings of the ionization chamber Exradim A1SL. Finally the results of 30 consecutive days are presented to establish criteria for evidence of dose, field size, symmetry and flattening of the radiation beam on Tomo Therapy equipment. Expected values for daily verification are: Dose constancy of 194.89 c Gy, σ= 1.31 c Gy, symmetry in the X axis of -0.19 %, σ=0.08 %, symmetry in the Y axis of 1.66 %, σ= 0.05 %, flattened in the X axis of 25.71 %, σ= 0.05 % and flattened in the Y axis of 6.41 %, σ= 10.23 %. Field sizes obtained were 40.45 cm in the X axis and 5.10 on the Y axis, with standard deviations of 0.02 cm and 0.01 cm, respectively. TomoDose dosimetric values, compared to the values obtained with ionization chamber, presented differences smaller than 2%. (Author)

    Solid oxide fuel cells are basically constituted by ceramic materials, a solid electrolyte sandwiched between two electrodes. A number of ceramic materials with perovskite structure have been proposed to act as electrode material due to the combination of their physical and chemical properties along with compatibility with the solid electrolyte. In this work the mixed oxide Sm{sub 0,5}Sr{sub 0,5}CoO{sub 3} was synthesized by the cation complexation technique. This perovskite oxide has been proposed as cathode in solid oxide fuel cells that operates in the intermediate temperature range ({approx} 500 to {approx} 700 deg C). Citric acid was used as complexant agent. The thermal decomposition of the precursor material occurs in several stages up to 600 deg C. After calcinations at 700 deg C the mixed oxide exhibits the characteristic perovskite phase of Sm{sub 0,5} Sr{sub 0,5}CoO{sub 3} the microstructure of the thermally decomposed material consists of porous agglomerates. This technique allowed for obtaining a single phase material at a relatively lower temperature. (author)

    Perovskite powders, with composition La{sub 1-x}Sr{sub x}MnO{sub 3} (x=0,1) were obtained via combustion synthesis using sucrose as fuel. In the X-ray diffraction patterns it was observed that in order to obtain a single phase and well crystallized material a calcination in 750 deg C for 3 hours was necessary. BET analysis detected a specific surface area of 45m{sup 2}/g, considerably higher than when obtained with other fuels. SEM micrographs revealed a spongy aspect with a connected porosity in the agglomerates and though TEM micrographs the presence of pores in the particles was verified. The powder compacted with 125MPa and sintered at 1050 deg C for two hours presented a 31% open porosity and the SEM micrographs showed a fine interconnected porosity. (author)

    Full Text Available In this study, a multiphysical description of fluid transport through osteo-articular porous media is presented. Adapted from the model of Moyne and Murad, which is intended to describe clayey materials behaviour, this multiscale modelling allows for the derivation of the macroscopic response of the tissue from microscopical information. First the model is described. At the pore scale, electrohydrodynamics equations governing the electrolyte movement are coupled with local electrostatics (Gauss-Poisson equation, and ionic transport equations. Using a change of variables and an asymptotic expansion method, the macroscopic description is carried out. Results of this model are used to show the importance of couplings effects on the mechanotransduction of compact bone remodelling.Neste estudo uma descrição multifísica do transporte de fluidos em meios porosos osteo articulares é apresentada.

Na primeira parte o modelo é apresentado. Na escala do poro as equações da eletro-hidrodinâmica governantes do movimento dos eletrolitos são acopladas com a eletrostática local (equação de Gauss-Poisson e as equações de transporte iônico. Usando uma mudança de variáveis e o método de expansão assintótica a derivação macroscópica é conduzida.

    Six experimental studies are discussed, involving the application of oxygen concentration cells using the solid electrolyte ZrO{sub 2} * CaO (providing pure anion conduction as migration of oxygen defects) to basic research in process metallurgy: (1) The standard free energies of formation of FeO, Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4}, SnO, PbO, Cu{sub 2}O, CuO and Ta{sub 2}O{sub 5} have been measured and expressed as functions of temperature in the range 500 to 1300 Degree-Sign C. (2) The oxygen pressure in liquid PbO-SiO{sub 2} solution has been measured at 800 to 1100 Degree-Sign C: the chemical activities of PbO and SiO{sub 2} and thermodynamic properties of PbO-SiO{sub 2} solution have been calculated. (3) One of the authors has measured the chemical activity of tin in liquid Pb-Sn binary solution at 700 to 900 Degree-Sign C, and the thermodynamic properties of Pb-Sn alloys have been calculated. (4) This author has also developed an oxygen gauge to measure the partial pressure of oxygen in high temperature gases in the range of P(O{sub 2}) = 10{sup -1} to 10{sup -20} atm and 500-1300 Degree-Sign C. Self-consistent and reproducible EMF values with various gas mixtures have been obtained. (5) The rates of oxidation or reduction of pure iron and iron oxides by CO-CO{sub 2} gas mixture were calculated from the EMF results obtained with the oxygen gauge at 900-1000 Degree-Sign C. (6) The oxygen pressure in liquid iron, containing various amounts of carbon up to the saturation value, or saturated with oxygen, has been measured with the reference electrodes of graphite or (Ni + NiO) powder. It appears that this method could be used to determine the oxygen content in liquid iron at 1500-1600 Degree-Sign C. In addition, possibilities for applying oxygen concentration cells to the basic study of process metallurgy have been suggested and industrial applications have also been discussed. (author) [French] Le memoire a trait a six travaux de recherche fondamentale sur les processus metallurgiques, faits au moyen des cellules a concentration d'oxygene avec electrolyte de ZrO{sub 2} * CaO, lequel assure une conduction anionique pure grace a la migration de defauts d'oxygene. Ces travaux sont les suivants: 1. Les energies libres types de formation de FeO, Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4}, SnO, PbO, Cu{sub 2}O, CuO et Ta{sub 2}O{sub 5} ont ete mesurees pour des temperatures de 500 a 1300 Degree-Sign C et exprimees en fonction de la temperature, les valeurs obtenues etant comparees aux donnees publiees. 2. La pression d'oxygene dans la solution liquide PbO-SiO{sub 2} a ete mesuree pour des temperatures de 800 a 1100 Degree-Sign C, l'equilibre etant realise a l'aide de plomb a l'etat liquide. Les activites chimiques de PbO et SiO{sub 2}, ainsi que les proprietes thermodynamiques de la solution ont ete determinees. 3. L'un des auteurs a mesure l'activite chimique de l'etain dans une solution liquide binaire de Pb-Sn pour des temperatures de 700 a 900 Degree-Sign C. Il a determine par des calculs les proprietes thermodynamiques d'alliages Pb-Sn. 4. En outre, il a mis au point un manometre a oxygene' pour mesurer la pression partielle de l'oxygene dans les gaz a haute temperature (500 a 1300 Degree-Sign C)dans l'intervalle 10{sup -1} a 10{sup -20} atm. Il a obtenu des valeurs autoconsistantes et reproductibles pour la force.electromotrice avec des melanges gazeux differents. 5. Les vitesses d'oxydation ou de reduction du fer pur et des oxydes de fer par un melange gazeux CO-CO{sub 2} ont ete mesurees au moyen du manometre entre 900 et 1000 Degree-Sign C. 6. Au moyen des electrodes de reference en graphite ou en poudre de (Ni + NiO), on a mesure la pression d'oxygene dans du fer a l'etat liquide, a differents teneurs en carbone, sature d'oxygene. Il semble que cette methode pourrait servir a determiner la teneur en oxygene du fer a l'etat liquide entre 1500 a 1600 Degree-Sign C.

(author) [Spanish] Se presentan en la memoria seis trabajos experimentales relacionados con la aplicacion de las celdas de concentracion de oxigeno con electrolito de ZrO{sub 2} * CaO (que permite una conduccion amonica pura debida a la migracion de defectos de oxigeno) a tareas de investigacion basica en procesos metalurgicos. 1. Se midieron las energias libres tipo de formacion del FeO, Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4}, SnO, PbO, Cu{sub 2}O, CuO y Ta{sub 2}O{sub 5} y se expresan mediante funciones de la temperatura en el intervalo 500 Degree-Sign - 1300 Degree-Sign C. 2. Se midio de 800 Degree-Sign a 1100 Degree-Sign C la tension de oxigeno en solucion liquida de PbO-SiO{sub 2}: se calcularon las actividades quimicas del PbO y del SiO{sub 2}, y tambien las propiedades termodinamicas, de la solucion de Pb0-Si02. 3. Uno de los autores de la presente memoria midio la actividad quimica del estano en una solucion binaria liquida Pb-Sn de 700 Degree-Sign a 900 Degree-Sign C y calculo las propiedades termodinamicas de las aleaciones Pb-Sn. 4. Este autor ha disenado ademas un manometro de oxigeno para medir la presion parcial del oxigeno en los gases a temperaturas elevadas (de 500 Degree-Sign - 1300 Degree-Sign C) en el intervalo 10{sup -1} a 10{sup -20} atm. Se han obtenido valores coherentes y reproducibles para las fuerzas electromotrices con varias mezclas gaseosas. 5. Partiendo de los resultados EMF obtenidos con el manometro de oxigeno se calcularon las velocidades de oxidacion o reduccion del hierro puro y de los oxidos de hierro por accion de una mezcla gaseosa de CO-CO{sub 2}, a 900 Degree-Sign - 1000 Degree-Sign C. 6. Usando electrodos de referencia de grafito o polvo de (Ni + NiO) se midio la presion del oxigeno en hierro liquido que contenia diversas cantidades de carbon hasta el valor de saturacion, o bien estaba saturado con oxigeno o grafito, Es evidente que este metodo podria utilizarse para determinar el contenido de oxigeno en hierro liquido a 1500 Degree-Sign - 1600 Degree-Sign C. Ademas, se sugieren posibilidades de aplicar las celdas de concentracion de oxigeno al estudio basico de procesos metalurgicos, y se analizan diversas aplicaciones industriales.

    In this paper are presented the results of a study carried out in order to establish a non-destructive ultrasonic technique for the evaluation of the adherence condition of solid-to-solid interfaces. An important application of this technique is the non-destructive inspection of welds of copper canes of the windings of a generator stator of a hydroelectric power station. The development of the inspection technique required the analysis of ultrasonic images of welds in two cane samples; these images were generated through an ultrasonic scanner type C (C-scan) using a system integrated in the Non-Destructive Testing Laboratory of the Combustion Systems Unit of the Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas (IIE). The analysis allowed the establishment of the adequate configuration of the equipment to be used in the on site inspection, its calibration procedures and the acceptance/rejection criteria of the welds to be examined. Likewise, the correlation among the values of the ultrasonic reflection coefficients measured in the welds and the theoretical values predicted for the adherence in the solid-to-solid interface for a simple model of imperfect interface, is presented. These results are a first step in the quantitative characterization of solid-to-solid joints, that together with future developments might have a technological impact in the determination of the condition of welds by friction, welds with the contribution of melted metal and the adherence degree of coatings on structures exposed to conditions leading to corrosion.

    Lithium ion conducting glasses have been extensively investigated due to their potential application as solid state amorphous electrolytes in lithium rechargeable batteries. The use of glassy electrolytes in all solid state devices may provide numerous advantages like increased safety, facility of fabrication and miniaturization and having a higher conductivity than those of the crystalline counterparts. In this work, we prepared and studied the Lithium ion conducting glassy solid electrolytes of the composition {sub x}Li{sub 2}O-(1-x)[0.5B{sub 2}O{sub 3} -0.5P{sub 2}O{sub 5}] where 20solido en baterias recargables de litio.

Las clamidomonas se ven favorecidas en ambos medios, hecho que permitió aislar una sepa pura de este tipo de algas. Las diatorneas por el hecho de crecer en relación con algas verdes generan un problema metodológico para su aislamiento, que aun se encuentra sin resolver.

  8. Study and optimization of the macroscopic electrical response of carbon based nanocomposites for advanced applications

    Silva, Jaime Pedro Oliveira da

    A presente tese centrou-se no estudo da resposta da constante dieletrica e condutividade eletrica em materiais compositos nos quais o reforco tinha uma elevada proporcao entre comprimento e diametro. O objeto de estudo foi o efeito de um reforco com uma elevada razao entre comprimento e diametro, concentracao e orientacao na resposta eletrica e dieletrica de um composito. Estes compositos tem uma grande importancia no desenvolvimento de materiais para sensores e atuadores. Num primeiro momento da dissertacao, explorou-se a resposta da constante dieletrica de um composito constituido por nanotubos de carbono como reforco e uma matriz polimerica. Verificou-se que um aumento da razao entre comprimento e diametro do reforco tem o efeito de aumentar a constante dieletrica do composito para uma igual fracao volumetrica de reforco. Constatou-se tambem que materiais na fase nematica demonstram uma constante dieletrica mais baixa quando comparados com materiais onde o reforco esta distribuido aleatoriamente. Ficou ainda demonstrado nesta dissertacao que materiais na fase nematica com razoes entre o comprimento e diametro diferentes a constante dieletrica segue uma lei de potencia. Numa segunda fase do trabalho, foi explorada a condutividade de nanocompositos polimericos reforcados com nanotubos de carbono, atraves de um modelo baseado em cilindros impenetraveis. Ficou demonstrado que o modelo e apropriado para descrever a condutividade eletrica de um nanocomposito polimerico reforcado com nanotubos. As simulacoes desenvolvidas demonstram que, aumentando a razao entre o comprimento e o diametro dos nanotubos de carbono, aumenta a condutividade eletrica do nanocomposito. No entanto, verifica-se que aumentando a anisotropia diminui a condutividade, sendo este efeito mais evidente para fracoes volumetricas maiores. Nesta dissertacao comprovou-se ainda que uma microestrutura gerada por um algoritmo de empacotamento sequencial pode ser descrita por um grafo aleatorio e que a

  9. Measurements of magnetic anisotropy in sickle cells

    Salvo Souza, L.H. de.

    1982-03-01

    Room temperature magnetic measurements in deoxigenated sickle cells showed the existence of magnetic anisotropy, Δchi=1,29 x 10 -3 . This effect was supposed paramagnetic and considered to be due to the iron atoms of the hemoglobin molecules which are one over the other, forming ordered chains inside the erythrocytes. Low temperature (liquid He - 4,2K) measurements of the magnetic anisotropy of sickle cells and normal red blood cells diluted in a cryoprotector was made to confirm the paramagnetic origin of the fenomena. For that purpose it was used a superconductor magnetometer coupled to a SQUID, developed in the 'Laboratorio do Estado Solido do Departamento de Fisica da PUC-RJ'. The results obtained seem to confirm the expected paramagnetic anisotropy and, furthermore, suggest the presence of magnetic interactions among the iron atoms in the sickle cells samples.

    1997-07-01

    The main objective of this investigation is the characterization of the solid residuals. A description of the handling of the liquid and gassy waste generated in hospitals is also given, identifying the source where they originate. To achieve the proposed objective the work was divided in three stages: The first one was the planning and the coordination with each hospital center, in this way, to determine the schedule of gathering of the waste can be possible. In the second stage a fieldwork was made; it consisted in gathering the quantitative and qualitative information of the general state of the handling of residuals. In the third and last stage, the information previously obtained was organized to express the results as the production rate per day by bed, generation of solid residuals for sampled services, type of solid residuals and density of the same ones. With the obtained results, approaches are settled down to either determine design parameters for final disposition whether for incineration, trituration, sanitary filler or recycling of some materials, and storage politics of the solid residuals that allow to determine the gathering frequency. The study concludes that it is necessary to improve the conditions of the residuals handling in some aspects, to provide the cleaning personnel of the equipment for gathering disposition and of security, minimum to carry out this work efficiently, and to maintain a control of all the dangerous waste, like sharp or polluted materials. In this way, an appreciable reduction is guaranteed in the impact on the atmosphere. (Author) [Spanish] El objetivo principal de esta investigacion es la caracterizacion de los residuos solidos.

    Nello stato magmatico della fisica novecentesca Albert Einstein è il nucleo solido, la roccia stabilmente configurata che sta al centro. Di qui la sua posizione di "classico", come testimonia al più alto livello questa esposizione della teoria della relatività. Una teoria che ha segnato un vero mutamento di paradigma, non solo in campo scientifico: la potenza teorica dell'equivalenza relativistica massa-energia ha trovato, come sappiamo, la sua tragica verifica a Hiroshima, nel terrificante potenziale distruttivo della bomba atomica. Oggi, a oltre un secolo dalla originaria formulazione einsteiniana, è la comprensione della "relatività della relatività" che vuol essere perseguita. A introdurre il lettore a questa nuova dimensione provvede un'antologia di scritti di quegli autori che fondarono la scienza fisico-matematica classica e ne avviarono l'evoluzione in senso relativistico.

    The laboratory method for preparing pure silicides and borides, reducing the corresponding oxides of metals, has been developed. Synthesis of silicides was carried out in the floating zone of molten silicon. The floating zone was obtained by means of electron bombardment. Synthesis of borides is similar but reactions are generally of the solid-solid type. Initial heating of the reaction mixture was also obtained by means of the electron beam but further heating was produced by the ionized gaseous products of the reaction.

    In this work the electronic properties and the composition of the three layers (diffusive, catalytic and outermost) are studied separately. In the first part, an anomalous behaviour of the photoemission peaks from the diffusive layer has been evidenced and correlated with the macroscopic electronic conductivity. In the second part, the electronic properties of the PT clusters are compared with the macroscopic electron conductivity. In the second part, the electronic properties of the PT clusters are compared with those of PT bulk, as a function of thermal treatment and after half-cell measurements. A correlation of the binding energy, asymmetry and width of the peaks with the different status of the metal has been attempted. [Italian] Il lavoro consiste di due parti: l'una dedicata allo studio delle caratteristiche dello strato di supporto e diffusivo, l'altra allo studio dello strato catalizzatore. Nella prima parte, la presenza anomala negli spettri XPS viene messa in relazione con la conducibilita' elettronica delle nanoparticelle metalliche in funzione delle condizioni di preparazione degli elettrodi e delle simulazioni di funzionamento. Sono messe in evidenza le problematiche connesse all'interpretazione degli spettri di fotoemissione da sistemi costituiti da particelle nanometriche, intermedi tra la condizione di atomo isolato e quella del solido, in cui gli effetti di dimensione svolgono un ruolo importante nel determinare risposte diverse ed inaspettate rispetto al comportamento del metallo massivo.

    Pulsed laser irradiation of a solid target involves electronic excitation and heating, followed by expansion from the target of the elliptical gas cloud (plume) which can be eventually condensed on a suitable substrate. Pulsed laser ablation has been found to be a valuable technique to prepare II-VI and III-V thin films of semiconductor materials. Pulsed laser ablation deposition is discussed in the light of the results of an investigation on CdS, CdSe, CdTe and CdSe/CdTe multilayers and AIN, GaN and InN together with Al-Ga-In-N heterostructures. [Italiano] L`irradiazione di un target solido, mediante un fascio laser impulsato, genera una serie di processi che possono essere schematizzati come segue: riscaldamento ed eccitazione elettronica del target, da cui consegue l`espulsione di materiale sotto forma di una nube gassosa di forma ellissoidale (plume), che espande e puo` essere fatta depositare su un opportuno substrato. L`ablazione lasersi e` rivelata una tecnica valida per preparare film sottili di composti di elementi del II-VI e del III-V gruppo della tavola periodica. La deposizione via ablazione laser viene discussa alla luce dei risultati ottenuti nella preparazione di film di CdS, CdSe, CdTe e di film multistrato di CdSe/CdTe, di film di AIN, GaN, InN e di eterostrutture di Al-Ga-In-N.

    The paper summarizes the experience acquired in Spain during seven years of investigation on the static leaching of uranium ores. The operations covered minerals showing wide variations with regard to both uranium content (250 and 2000 ppm) and the type of rock and gangue (granites, shales, sandstones, sulphides, carbonates, limonites etc.). The studies were carried out on quantities of material varying from a few kilograms to several tons. Leaching agents included water, solid reagents (pyrites), alkaline carbonates and sulphuric acid. The systems used consisted of both simple layouts and other, more elaborate schemes including recycling of the liquors. The uranium was recovered from the liquors first by direct precipitation and later by ion-exchange and extraction with amines. (author) [Spanish] La memoria resume la experiercia espanola de siete anos de estudio sobre lixiviacion estatica de minerales de uranio. Se ha estudiado una gran variedad de minerales tanto en lo que respecta a ley de uranio (250 y 2000 ppm), como a la naturaleza de las rocas y gangas (granitos, pizarras, areniscas, sulfuros, carbonatos, limonitas, etc.). Los estudios se han realizado en diferentes escalas, desde kilogramos a varias toneladas. Los agentes de lixiviacion han sido variables: agua, reactivos solidos (piritas), carbonatos alcalinos y acido sulfurico. Los circuitos empleados se refieren tanto a esquemas sencillos, como a otros mas elaborados con recirculaciones de liquido. La recuperacion del uranio de los liquidos se resolvio inicialmente por precipitacion directa, pero luego se efectuo mediante cambio de ion y extraccion con aminas. (author)

    The method developed in the present paper, starting from a knowledge of demographic data, the growth of refuse production and the material composition of solid urban refuse, allows the evaluation of the effects of the aims of differentiated collection, over a period of time, provided for by the norm in force (D.Lgs 22/97). This evaluation is effected both on the quantity of individual materials to be recovered and on the average MSW calorific power to be incinerated. The model was applied to the Region of Calabria and a parametric study was carried out on the average calorific power of the refuse produced by the two different strategies employed to attain the aims provided for by the Ronchi Act (mainly dry and mainly wet differentiated collection). [Italiano] La metodologia sviluppata nel presente lavoro, interamente automatizzata in ambiente Excel, permette, a partire dalla conoscenza di dati demografici, di crescita della produzione di rifiuti e della composizione merceologica del rifiuto solido urbano, di valutare, in un fissato periodo temporale, gli effetti degli obiettivi di raccolta differenziata previsti dalla norma vigente (D.Legs. 22/97) sia sui quantitativi dei singoli materiali da recuperare sia sul potere calorifico medio del RSU da incenerire. Oltre ad una applicazione alla Regione Calabria e` presentato, a titolo esemplificativo, uno studio parametrico sul potere calorifico medio del rifiuto per effetto di due diverse strategie di raggiungimento degli obiettivi previsti dal decreto Ronchi (raccolta differenziata a prevalenza secco e a prevalenza umido).

    We discuss the steady-state electronic transport in solid-state and molecular devices in the quantum regime. The decimation technique allows a comprehensive description of the electronic structure. Such a method is used, in conjunction with the generalizations of Landauer's tunneling formalism, to describe a wide range of transport regimes. We analyze mesoscopic and semiclassical metallic transport, the metal-insulator transition, and the resonant tunneling regime. The effects of decoherence on transport is discussed in terms of the D' Amato-Pastawski model. A brief presentation of the time dependent phenomena is also included. [Spanish] Se discuten el transporte, en el estado estacionario, en dispositivos moleculares y de estado solido en el regimen cuantico. La tecnica de decimacion permite una descripcion completa de la estructura electronica. Tal metodo, en conjunto con la generalizacion del formalismo de Landauer, puede ser usado para describir un rango amplio de regimenes de transporte. Se analizan el transporte mesoscopico y semiclasico en el regimen metalico, la transicion metal-aislante, y el regimen de tunel resonante. Los efectos de decoherencia en el transporte son tratados en terminos de modelos de D'amato-Pastawski. Finalmente se incluye una breve presentacion de fenomenos dependientes del tiempo.

    This article presents an analysis of conjugated heat transfer in the first stage of movable blades during the starting of a gas turbine, covering a period of 1,012 seconds. The developed computer model is in 3D and uses as initial and border conditions typical starting curves for stack gases, the cooling air and the angular velocity of the blades. As a result of the numerical predictions, the temperature distributions in stack gases, the trowel of the blade and the cooling air are included, doing emphasis in the results obtained in the solid (body of the blade), since these are used for thermo-mechanical stress analysis and later estimation of the blade residual life. [Spanish] Este articulo presenta un analisis de transferencia de calor conjugada en la primera etapa de alabes moviles, durante el arranque de una turbina de gas, cubriendo un periodo de 1.012 segundos.

    There are many ways to eliminate the municipal solid wastes, but only a few help to treat them and to dispose of them suitably. Some of the forms to avoid the problems that the trash originate are: not to produce it, recycling it in a 100% or creating a fictitious market where its value is equal to or greater than the product that gave origin to it; in any case, these alternatives are not absolutely practical. The trash can be incinerated, be segregated, be recycled partially or also be arranged in sanitary landfills. Anyway, the trash has always existed and it will continue existing for sure.

    In this document some papers about the development of solid and liquid desiccant cooling systems and dehumidification are analyzed. In a desiccant cooling cycle, the desiccant reduces the quantity of humidity of the air and temperature is decreases by others components such as heat exchangers, cooling evaporatives or conventional coolers. The main advantage of this systems is the capacity to use a low-grade thermal energy. These systems are being used in residence and commercial constructions to reduce energy and to optimize costs, however the initial cost is significantly higher that the conventional cooling systems. Recent studies have been focused in analyzing desiccant cooling systems, through computer modeling. [Spanish] En este documento se analizan algunas publicaciones sobre el desarrollo de los sistemas de enfriamiento y deshumidificacion con desecantes solidos y liquidos. En el ciclo de enfriamiento en el desecante, el desecante reduce la cantidad de humedad del aire y la temperatura se reduce por medio de otros componentes tales como intercambiadores de calor, enfriadores evaporativos o enfriadores convencionales. La ventaja principal que ofrecen estos sistemas es la capacidad de utilizar una baja cantidad de energia termica. Estos sistemas estan siendo utilizados en edificaciones habitacionales y comerciales para reducir el consumo de energia y optimizar costos, sin embargo el costo inicial es significativamente mas alto que los sistemas de enfriamiento convencionales. Estudios recientes se han enfocado en analizar estos sistemas de enfriamiento con desecantes, a traves de la modelacion por computadora.

    We employ the fast Fourier transform beam propagation method to simulate the propagation of light in graded index channel waveguides, these have been obtained by solid state diffusion of copper ions in soda-lime glass substrates. Longitudinal propagation has been simulated, the input light beam has a gaussian profile. Two cases have been analyzed, in the first, the Gaussian beam is collinear center to center with respect to waveguide; in the second, a small lateral offset and angular tilt have been introduced. Modal beating and bending effects have been founded. We have proven the validity of our numerical results in detailed comparison with experimental data. [Spanish] Se ha empleado el metodo de propagacion de haces por la transformada rapida de Fourier para simular la propagacion de la luz en guias de onda de indice de gradiente. Estas han sido fabricadas por difusion de iones de cobre en estado solido en substratos de vidrios sodicos-calcicos. Se han simulado dos casos, el primero, el perfil de luz de entrada, que es gaussiano, es colineal centro a centro respecto al centro de la guia de ondas: el segundo, se ha dado un pequeno corrimiento lateral y una inclinacion angular. Como consecuencia de los casos anteriores se ha observado efectos de batimiento modal. Los resultados de la simulacion se han validado con resultados experimentales.

    Mould materials for injection moulding of polymers and polymer-matrix composites represent a relevant industrial economic sector due to the large quantity of pieces and components processed. The material selection for mould manufacturing, its composition and heat treatment, the hardening procedures and machining and finishing processes determine the service performance and life of the mould. In the first part of the present study, the relationship between the hardness and microstructure and the wear resistance of mould steels from large blocks has been studied by pin-on-disc tests, studying the main wear mechanisms. In order to determine the surface damage on mould steels under real injection conditions, different commercial steels have been studied by measuring the variation of surface roughness with the number of injected pieces with different reinforcement percentages and different mould geometries, by using optical profilometry and scanning electron microscopy techniques. It was important to determine the variation of surface roughness of the moulded pieces with the number of injection operations. The materials used were polybutyleneterephthalate pure and reinforced with either 20% or 50% glass fibre. For the different mould designs, the evolution of the glass fibre orientation with injection flow has been determined by image analysis and related to roughness changes and surface damage, both of the composite parts and of the mould steel surface. Finally, the abrasion resistance of the composite parts has been studied by scratch tests as a function of the number of injected parts and of the scratch direction with respect to injection flow and glass fibre orientation. Los materiales para moldes de inyeccion de polimeros y materiales compuestos representan un sector economicamente muy relevante debido al gran aumento del numero de componentes fabricados a partir de materiales polimericos obtenidos mediante moldeo por inyeccion.

Para describir el comportamiento entre las fases de coloración y las variables analizadas se propusieron modelos estadísticos polinomiales hasta el grado sexto. Los resultados mostraron que, durante el desarrollo 1a coloración del fruto aumento, proporcionalmente, su tamaño, peso fresco y la relación solidos solubles totales/acidez total titulable (SST/AIT hasta 1a fase 5, mientras la acidez titulable se redujo constantemente. Los coeficientes de determinación mas altos se encontraron para las variables acidez total titulable (R2 = 0,95 y relación SST/ATT (R2 = 0,98, y los mas bajos fueron para β-caroteno (R2 =0,79. Los solidos solubles (principalmente, sacarosa mostraron sus picos mas altos en las fases 3 y 4 y el contenido del β caroteno, en 1a fase 4, razón por la cual se supone que la madurez fisiológica se encuentra entre estos dos estados (3 y 4, naranja claro - naranja, En el estado de la sobremaduracion, color naranja roja, se observo una reducción marcada en tamaño y peso del fruto. Por la relación estrecha entre coloración y el desarrollo de los ingredientes del fruto, se propone que el color de la cascara es un indicador, de fácil uso en campo, para determinar calidad y madurez de la uchuva.

    algunas ventajas sobre otras como las tecnicas optica y el analisis quimico: es muy rapida, facil de implantar, requiere minima o ninguna preparacion de la muestra a medir, puede ser no destructiva y minimamente intrusa. En este articulo se describe el desarrollo de un sistema de espectroscopia dielectrica en el intervalo de frecuencias de microondas (50 MHz-20GHz), usando una sonda coaxial abierta como sensor. El sistema completo esta formado por un analizador de redes vectorial, un cable coaxial de microondas, la sonda, un porta-muestras y una computadora para automatizacion de mediciones y procesamiento de datos. El sistema se ha utilizado para medir algunos materiales liquidos y solidos tales como alcohol, agua y teflon. Se presentan las partes real e imaginaria de la permitividad como funcion de la frecuencia medidas para mezclas de alcohol, de cana y agua desionizada, tequila y teflon. Haciendo consideraciones de exactitud y repetibilidad de las mediciones, se identifico que la incertidumbre de los materiales de referencia y la repetibilidad del sistema son las fuentes mas importantes de error. Tambien, se encontro que la tecnica de la sonda coaxial abierta resulta apropiada no solo para medir liquidos, sino tambien solidos. Algunos de los resultados obtenidos fueron comparados con valores de la literatura observandose buena convergencia.

    A description is presented of the operation of the Combined Cycle Power Stations with Integrated Gasification (CCGI) where the use of solid fuels (coal, vacuum residues, petroleum coke, and biomass) or liquids is possible in a thermal power station with the efficiency and many of the own environmental benefits of the combined cycles. The gasification process is analyzed, that is a thermo-chemical process by means of which a fuel that is in solid state or liquid becomes to the gaseous state by means of a partial oxidation and the obtained gas of this process is called synthesis gas (syngas, by its abbreviations in English) that is used in Combined Cycle Power Stations as a substitute for the natural gas. Also the other components of this type of power stations are shown, such as the air separating unit, and some of the modifications that are due to make to adapt a gas turbine so that it uses syngas, and the considerations of their integration with the air separating unit to optimize the operation of the plant are detailed. A comparison of efficiency values of power stations CCGI with the conventional carbon-electric and the power stations of combined cycle that use natural gas is also shown. Finally the emissions of pollutants of SO{sub 2}, NO{sub x} and CO{sub 2} are analyzed. The possibility of using fuels like petroleum coke and vacuum tower residues that are produced in the Cadereyta refinery is studied for the possible construction of a CCGI power station in Mexico.

Tamoxifen (TAM is a synthetic non-steroidal anti-estrogen drug employed in female breast cancer treatment. The present study investigated the capacity of TAM to induce cell death in human lymphocytes cultivated in vitro. Lymphocytes were obtained from young (25-30 years; n = 3 and elderly women (58-77 years; n = 3 and cultivated for 24 or 48h, with or without TAM (20 ƒÊM. After the culture, cell viability, immunocytochemical response and ultrastructure were evaluated. TAM affected lymphocytes in a time- dependent manner, and cells obtained from elderly women were the most sensitive to TAM. Immunocytochemicalanalysis evidenced higher frequency of apoptosis in treated cells, and the ultrastructural study revealed autophagic vacuoles, differing from the controls. In summary, the treated lymphocytes were affected by TAM, leading to cell death by apoptosis and autophagy.Muitos agentes quimioterapicos com potencial contra tumores solidos ou leucemias podem causar linfopenia.

    Full Text Available En uno de sus textos, Amartya Sen señala que «la economía moderna se empobreció en forma sustancial debido a la distancia que se ha abierto entre la ética y la economía», ya que, como consecuencia de ese divorcio, la ciencia económica ha tenido una visión estrecha de las motivaciones del comportamiento humano y del significado del desarrollo social. Pero a su vez, señala Sen, este distanciamiento también ha perjudicado a la ética, que ha perdido la posibilidad de usar el fino instrumental analítico de la economía, para enriquecer sus visiones, y en especial para poder tomar en cuenta en sus análisis normativoslas complejas interdependencias que existen entre los comportamientos de los distintos agentes sociales.Esta reflexión de Sen puede ser proyectada a la relación, también bastante problemática, que se ha dado entre la economía y el derecho. La separación académica que durante mucho tiempo ha existido entre esas disciplinas ha tenido efectos empobrecedores para ambas. La economía ha solido desconocer la importancia que tienen la dimensión normativa y los arreglos institucionales en el comportamiento de los agentes económicos y en el significado del propio desarrollo, mientras que el olvido de los condicionamientos económicos puede llevar al análisis jurídico a moverse en abstracciones desvinculadas de la dinámica objetiva de los procesos sociales.

    In the frame of the experimental infrastructure development of the Reservoirs Laboratory of the Geothermal Department of the Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas (IIE), a methodology that allows the simultaneous determination of the thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity and specific heat in rock samples and other solid materials of low and medium conductivity, was implemented. The methodology is based in the theoretical solution of temperature distribution around an ideal linear heat source immersed in an infinite medium. The three properties are derived from one relatively simple experiment, that essentially consists in recording the temporary temperature variation in a given point of the specimen during a short heating period. This methodology has special application in the geothermal area, as well as in other areas related to the development and exploitation of underground energy and mineral resources.

La metodologia se basa en la solucion teorica de la distribucion de temperatura alrededor de una fuente lineal ideal de calor inmersa en un medio infinito. Las tres propiedades se derivan de un solo experimento relativamente simple, que consiste esencialmente en registrar la variacion temporal de la temperatura en un punto dado del especimen durante un corto periodo de calentamiento.

    This document explains the importance of the sustainable development in the electric energy, that is, that the technological advances in the electric sector do no hamper the future of the generations to come and generate potential problems such as: environmental pollution, unnecessary expenses in the realization of new technologies already executed. Mention is made of the relationship between nature and society, the ecological crisis, and the electric energy, seven points are given on how to control and treat waste waters, three points are given to handle and dispose of solid wastes, finally four points are given on the noise contamination control. It is concluded that the problem of reducing the environmental impact of the generation of electricity does not depend on the applied technology, since there are technological options for its solution, but on other more complex factors that deal with the generation of wealth, its distribution and the population growing [Espanol] En el presente documento se explica la importancia del desarrollo sustentable en la energia electrica, es decir que los avances tecnologicos en el sector energetico no entorpezcan el futuro de las generaciones venideras y generen posibles problemas como: contaminacion del medio ambiente, gastos innecesarios en la realizacion de las nuevas tecnologias realizadas. Se menciona la relacion entre la naturaleza y la sociedad, la crisis ecologica y la energia electrica, se dan siete puntos de como controlar y tratar aguas residuales, se proporcionan tres puntos para manejar y disponer de residuos solidos, por ultimo se dan cuatro puntos sobre el control de la contaminacion por ruido.

Renal cell carcinoma has been the most common malignancy of the kidney, percentage is close to three percent of solid tumors of adults. The treatments for this tumor are analyzed: open radical nephrectomy, laparoscopic radical nephrectomy, open partial nephrectomy and laparoscopic partial nephrectomy. Laparoscopic partial nephrectomy has represented an alternative option acceptable, safely and with good oncological and surgical outcomes for patients, as it is used to conserve nephrons and simultaneously to resect the tumor of a complete form promoting in the future the patient present a good renal function. Additionally, a adequate oncological control has reduced the risk of submit postoperative renal failure. An evolution of laparoscopic partial nephrectomy is presented determining the procedure for renal tumors in state T1 in the adults [Spanish] El cancer renal T1 en adultos es dado a conocer; su incidencia, caracteristicas y manejo.

    Full Text Available La necesidad de desarrollar métodos simplificados, operativos y coherentes para modelar la relación precipitación-escurrimiento a escala de eventos, permanece como uno de los grandes retos en el campo de la hidrología. Si bien existen propuestas simples de modelación como el método del Número de Curva o NC, sus bases teóricas no tienen fundamentos hidrológicos. La ventaja del método del NC es que solo requiere de un parámetro, lo cual lo hace muy atractivo en las aplicaciones. En este trabajo se analizan las bases del método del NC. Los resultados muestran que estos intentos simplificados de modelación están limitados. Por otro lado, el modelo expo-lineal de Paz (2013 es flexible en términos empíricos. Las bases teóricas de este modelo son discutidas en términos de la hidrología de área variable, en un formato suficientemente general para hacer solido su uso. El modelo se aplicó a un experimento en un simulador de lluvias con lotes de escurrimiento con diferentes tipos de suelo y coberturas aéreas de pastos. Los resultados mostraron un buen ajuste experimental a los datos, particularmente en términos de parametrizar el modelo expo-lineal en forma similar al método del NC. De estos desarrollos, se presenta un esquema de estimación de los parámetros del modelo expo-lineal que se puede usar en forma equivalente, por su simplicidad al tener un solo parámetro libre, al método del NC.

En la metodologia de esta investigación se tomaron muestras de agua de mar en cuatro puntos de un sector de aproximadamente 2.5 km de playa, durante ocho meses en el ano 2013, en epocas de lluvia y sequia. Los metalesanalizados fueron Cobalto, Cobre, Zinc, Aluminio, Manganeso, Niquel y Hierro. Las concentraciones de los metales Ni y Zn, considerados muy toxicos, se encontraron por encima de los niveles segun la normativa nacional y algunas establecidas a nivel internacional, para efectos agudos en aguas marinas y estuarinas destinadas a la preservacion de fauna y flora; las concentraciones de Cu y Zn, se encuentran por debajo de los limites establecidos por la EEA y la EPA. La correlacion significativa existente entre las concentraciones de los metales Fe, Mn, Zn, Co con los nutrientes nitrato y fosfato, indica posible acumulacion de ellos en el sedimento e incluso bioacumulacion en la fauna asociada a esta zona. La presencia y concentraciones de los metales son producto, principalmente, de la intervención humana en las labores de mineria y en el ciclo biogeoquimico de los metales.

    This paper presents groundwater vulnerability mapping for Jerash area, north Jordan generated using EPIK and DRASTIC models. These models have been implemented using GIS to delineate groundwater protection zones and to suggest a protection plan to improve groundwater quality of the major springs and wells. Most of the groundwater resources in the study area are polluted and bacteria and nitrate levels are high. Different sources of groundwater pollution have been identified. Domestic wastewater is considered as a major source of pollution. Urban runoff, fertilizers from agricultural return flows and solid waste disposal appear to be secondary sources. The most relevant vulnerability class of EPIK map is very high which accounts for about 41 % of the total area. While in the DRASTIC vulnerability map, areas with high vulnerability were only about 23 % of the total area. There is a good correlation between vulnerability maps obtained from both models with microbiological and chemical pollution evidences. There is also a good agreement between the areas classified as highly vulnerable and those that have high levels of pollution. [Spanish] El estudio de vulnerabilidad de aguas subterraneas en la region de Yerash, Jordania fue obtenido mediante las metodologias de EPIK y DRASTIC. Se uso GIS para mapear las zonas protegidas y para sugerir un plan de proteccion para mejorar la calidad del agua subterranea en los principales manantiales y pozos. Los niveles de contaminacion bacteriana y de nitratos son elevados. El efluente domestico es la fuente mas importante de contaminacion; vienen en segundo lugar la precipitacion en zonas urbanas, los fertilizantes agricolas y los desechos solidos. En el mapa de EPIK, la vulnerabilidad extrema abarca hasta 41% del area total; en cambio, en el mapa de DRASTIC las areas de alta vulnerabilidad ocupan solo un 23% del area. La correlacion de los datos de contaminacion microbiana y quimica con ambos mapas der vulnerabilidad es buena

    2003-05-01

    Full Text Available Le amebe a vita libera sono state oggetto di diversi studi negli ultimi anni, non solo per le loro potenzialità patogene nei confronti dell’uomo, ma anche per l’importante ruolo che svolgono in natura, dove agiscono come predatori in grado di controllare le popolazioni batteriche. Alcuni degli organismi fagocitati però possono evitare la lisi fagosomiale e mantenere la loro condizione vitale a livello intracellulare, divenendo endosimbionti. Le amebe fungono così da riserva per questi batteri, proteggendoli da difficili condizioni extracellulari e provvedendo ad un ambiente consono alla loro replicazione. Tale tipo di interazione è particolarmente studiata in Legionella pneumophila, dal momento che l’ampia diffusione di questo germe, nonché la sua virulenza, pare siano fortemente influenzate dalla capacità di parassitare protozoi appartenenti ai generi Acanthamoeba, Naegleria e Balamuthia. Al fine di ottenere maggiori informazioni sui fattori favorenti o inibenti lo sviluppo di questi protozoi, è stato studiato il comportamento di un ceppo di Acanthamoeba polyphaga coltivato, in solido e in liquido, in associazione con L. pneumophila ed altri batteri ad habitat acquatico (Pseudomonas, Aeromonas, Achromobacter, Burkholderia. Su tappeti di cellule batteriche allestiti in Non Nutrient Agar (NNA, A.polyphaga si è mostrata in grado di moltiplicarsi utilizzando come nutrimento tutti i ceppi testati, nonostante alcuni, come Burkholderia cepacia SSV6 e Achromobacter xylox SS28, risultino più idonei al suo sviluppo. In piastre a pozzetti addizionate di acqua condottata autoclavata, il protozoo ha mostrato una buona capacità di sopravvivenza, non risultando inoltre influenzato dalla presenza di legionella o dei batteri acquatici testati. Dal momento che, fra i batteri descritti come capaci di vita intra-amebica, sono inclusi patogeni quali Chlamydia, Legionella, Listeria e Rickettsiae, risulta necessario riconsiderare la rilevanza clinica

    In this work the stabilization of hazardous solid wastes containing heavy metals has been studied by means of novel matrices able to generate calcium trisulphoaluminate and silicate hydrates. The process is based on the hydration of two different mixtures containing blast furnace slag, coal ashes, chemical gypsum and Portland cement. The stabilization capacity of the two mixtures has been checked with regard to both a residue from an incinerator of municipal solid wastes and model systems obtained by adding 5 and 10% of soluble nitrates of Cd, Cr, Cu, Ni, Pb and Zn. The stabilized products have been validated from the point of view of mechanical properties by determining the unconfined compressive strength, and from the environmental point of view by means of static and dynamic leaching tests. Both matrices have proved to have great potentiality for the stabilization of hazardous solid wastes, the one based on blast furnace slag being better. Finally, evidence is given that different leaching tests are necessary to fully understand the immobilization mechanism responsible for stabilization. [Italiano] In questo lavoro e` stata studiata la atbilizzazione di residui tossici e nocivi contenenti metalli pesanti per mezzo di matrici leganti innovative capaci di generare trisolfoalluminato e silicato di calcio idrati. Il processo e` basato sull`idratazione di due diverse miscele contenenti scoria d`alto forno, ceneri di carbone, gessi chimici e cemento Portland. Le capacita` stabilizzanti delle due miscele sono state verificate sia nei confronti di un residuo solido generato a seguito dell`incenerimento di RSU, che nei confronti di sistemi modello ottenuti aggiungendo singolarmente il 5 e 10% dei nitrati solubili di Cd, Cr, Cu, Ni, Pb e Zn. I prodotti solidi stabilizzati sono stati validati dal punto di vista delle prestazioni meccaniche mediante prove di resistenza a compressione, e dal punto di vista ambientale mediante test di rilascio sia statici che dinamici

I dati sperimentali mostrano che la resa in gas aumenta con la temperatura e che, per quanto riguarda la composizione, il gas si arricchisce in idrogeno a spese principalmente di altri composti gassosi, indicando cosi' una maggiore estensione dei cracking secondari nella frazione gassosa a temperature piu' alte. Il gas ottenuto a temperature di processo uguali o superiori a 950{sup o}C presenta caratteristiche tali da renderlo utilizzabile in celle a combustione; a temperature piu' basse, la composizione del gas ne suggerisce un impiego finale nelle reazioni di sintesi del feedstock recycling. Il basso contenuto di organico nel residuo solido non suggerisce altri utilizzi del char diversi dallo smaltimento in discarica.

    The world production of waste tyres amounts to 5 {center_dot} 10{sup 6} ton/year, 2 {center_dot} 10{sup 6} tons of which are produced in Europe; the Italian production of waste tyres is up to 360 thousand tons per year. Even today, the final destination of nearly 65-70% of waste tyres is the landfill, legal or illegal; but this solution seems to be not so advantageous, as far as the high added value materials lost and the environmental impact are concerned. Treatments alternative to land filling take into account the tyres reconstruction and reuse or the matter and/or energy recovery by means of thermal treatment processes. With respect to the latter processes, the pyrolysis process definitely shows the less environmental impact and gets to process products (gases, oils and solid residue) able to be back on the market after the suitable treatment. Present work shows the results of the pyrolysis process experimental survey on tyres granulate, developed on the pilot plant of ENEA-Trisaia Research Centre. [Italian] La produzione mondiale di pneumatici usati conta annualmente piu' di 5 milioni di tonnellate di cui 2 milioni generati in Europa: in Italia, sono generate circa 360 mila tonnellate l'anno di pneumatici usati. Il destino finale del 65-70% dei pneumatici usati e' ancora oggi lo smaltimento in discarica, sia essa autorizzata o abusiva; questa soluzione risulta poco vantaggiosa per la perdita di materiali che in precedenza possedevano un alto valore aggiunto e in termini d'impatto ambientale. Trattamenti alternativi alla discarica, prevedono la ricostruzione e il riutilizzo oppure il recupero di materia e/o di energia mediante processi di trattamento termico. Tra questi ultimi il processo di pirolisi presenta senz'altro il minor impatto ambientale e conduce a prodotti di processo (gas, olii e residuo solido) che, opportunamente trattati, possono essere immessi sul mercato.

    The objective of this work was to determine the removal efficiency of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) and total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) from soil contaminated with hydrocarbons using two different types of agricultural residues, filter cake mud and the sugarcane bagasse pith, as amendment and bulking agents. To test these approaches, a microcosms test was applied to soil contaminated with 14 300 mg kg-1 of TPH and 23.14 mg kg-1 of PAH. The soil treatments consisted of the following ratios of soil to residue (%/%): 100:0, 98:2, 98:4 and 98:6, and macronutrient addition was based on a carbon/nitrogen/phosphorus ratio (C:N:P, %/ % / %) of 100:10:1. Statistical analysis indicated that there were significant differences between the filter cake mud and the sugarcane bagasse pith treatments, in which the TPH removal efficiency was 60.1% using sugar cane bagasse pith and 51.4% with filter cake mud. A filter cake mud ratio of 96:4 produced the highest observed removal efficiency of PAH (43%), and a sugarcane bagasse pith ratio of 98:2 resulted in a PAH removal efficiency of 41%. Filter cake mud treatment could be an alternative for use in the bioremediation process of soils polluted with hydrocarbons. [Spanish] El objetivo del presente trabajo fue determinar la eficiencia de remocion de hidrocarburos aromaticos policiclicos (HAP) y de hidrocarburos totales del petroleo (HTP) de un suelo contaminado con petroleo crudo, utilizando dos tipos de residuos agroindustriales, la cachaza y el bagazo de cana de azucar como enmiendas y texturizante. Para ello, se realizaron pruebas en microcosmos de cultivos solidos para la biorremediacion de un suelo contaminado con 14300 mg kg-1 de HTP y 23.14 mg kg-1 de HAP. Las relaciones suelo: residuo utilizadas en las pruebas fueron las siguientes (%): 100:0, 98:2, 96:4 y 94:6, y la adicion de macronutrimentos con base en la relacion carbono/nitrogeno/fosforo (%%%) de 100:10:1.

    The effects of Co, Ni and Cu oxide content on the surface and bulk of the 1.5 mole % Sr/La{sub 2}O{sub 3} catalysts were studied. Series of M/Sr-La catalysts (MCo, Ni, Cu) were prepared by successive immersion impregnation. The solids were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), temperature-programmed reduction (TPR), electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), specific surface area measurements (BET) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). The Sr/La{sub 2}O{sub 3} modified with different Co, Ni, and Cu loading shows a strong metal oxide interaction with La{sub 2}O{sub 3}. This probably begin over anionic vacancies or structure defects favoring LaSrMO{sub x} solid solution formation with island-like structures according to a Volmer-Weber growth. It is proposed that the growth mode of La-Co, La-Ni and La-Cu stoichiometric phases occur from solid solutions. The formation of only a La-M single phase, probably non-stoichiometric, increases the material porosity while different phases favor the agglomeration or sintering of the particles. [Spanish] En este trabajo se estudia el efecto de la cantidad de cobalto, niquel y cobre sobre las estructuras superficial y masica del sistema 1.5% molar Sr/La{sub 2}O{sub 3}.

Los solidos se caracterizaron por difraccion de rayos-X, espectroscopia infrarroja con transformada de Fourier, reduccion a temperatura programada, resonancia paramagnetica del electron, medidas del area superficial especifica por el metodo de BET y analisis termogravimetrico. El catalizador Sr/La{sub 2}O{sub 3} modificado con diferentes cantidades de Co, Ni y Cu muestra una interaccion fuerte con el oxido del metal de transicion, probablemente sobre las vacancias anionicas o defectos estructurales que favorecen la formacion de la solucion solida LaSrMox en forma de isla, segun el mecanismo de crecimiento de fase de Volmer

    Full Text Available Questo contributo è focalizzato su organizzazioni non appartenenti al settore cinematografico, osservate nel loro ruolo di investitori esterni. L’importanza del valore collettivo di sostenere le produzioni cineaudiovisive è alla base del presente lavoro. Tuttavia la nostra attenzione è qui rivolta, da un lato, a studiare i vantaggi dell’investimento per l’azienda esterna, dall’altro, ad analizzarne i rischi nella prospettiva di una sempre più chiara consapevolezza di scelta. Dall’analisi di strumenti, dinamiche e dati emergono opportunità rilevanti per l’azienda, insieme a condizioni importanti per utilizzarle con successo. È essenziale che l’organizzazione proceda senza improvvisare, curando, da un lato, un approccio alla pianificazione e alla dettagliata valutazione del progetto, dall’altro, flessibilità e apertura nelle interazioni con gli altri interlocutori, interazioni che devono essere orientate al raggiungimento dell’equilibrio migliore a livello collettivo e individuale. Soprattutto, è necessario che l’azienda proceda nel contesto di un percorso strategico solido e coerente, perché un progetto di film può valorizzare l’identità aziendale ma non risolvere incertezze a questo riguardo.   This contribution focuses on organisations that are not in the cinema industry, studied in their role as external investors. The importance of the collective value of sustaining cine audio visual productions is at the basis of this work. Nonetheless, our attention is oriented, on one hand, to study the investment advantages for the external organization, on the other, to analyse the risks of this investment in the perspective of an increasingly clear choice. From the analysis of tools, dynamics and data, relevant opportunities for the organisation emerge, together with important conditions for their successful implementation. It is essential that the organization proceed without improvising, following, on one side, an

    Introduzione: la complessità interpretativa dei dati relativi ad alcuni fenomeni sanitari a livello territoriale impone la necessità di uno strumento semplice di lettura “epidemiologica”; tale lettura si fonda sull’utilizzo di una serie di “indicatori”, fondamenta di un processo dinamico di monitoraggio temporale e spaziale in grado di descrivere sinteticamente fenomeni di per sé complessi, al fine di fornire al decisore un supporto sintetico ma scientificamente solido.

    Obiettivi: istituzione di un sistema di monitoraggio sanitario community-based; definizione di indicatori sanitari comparabili tramite un esame critico dei dati esistenti; sviluppo di metodologie per la raccolta e la validazione dei dati; supporto alla creazione di un sistema efficace e affidabile di trasferimento e scambio dei dati e degli indicatori stessi con uso spinto della tecnologia telematica; elaborazione di metodi e di strumenti necessari alla produzione di analisi e relazioni.

El objetivo fue determinar las condiciones adecuadas para encapsulación de proteasa mediante electroatomización. La evaluación del proceso se realizó en función de las variables independientes: voltaje, concentración de material de recubrimiento y el flujo de alimentación; además de las variables dependientes: características del espectro y morfología. A las partículas obtenidas se les midió las características morfológicas (microscopía y de espectro (Raman. Los resultados mostraron que, las condiciones que permitieron la encapsulación fueron las realizadas a un voltaje de 13kV, empleando un material de recubrimiento con un aporte de solidos solubles totales de 55% y un flujo de alimentación de 0,1mL/h; presentando formación de cápsulas esféricas con espectros (Raman en el intervalo de 200 a 700cm-1; observando el pico más alto correspondiente a la enzima a 515cm-1 y tamaños entre 0,035 y 1,185μm. A partir de los resultados, se infiere que la electroatomización puede ser considerada como una técnica viable para la encapsulación de enzima proteasa, siempre y cuando se establezcan las condiciones de proceso que son propias de cada solución, permitiendo de esta manera el desarrollo de productos (aditivos que posteriormente puedan llegar a ser incorporados a otros.

    Nowadays the treatment of the solid and liquid remainders in the municipal slaughter houses is small because of the idea that the treatment is expensive; nevertheless, it is important to take advantage of them, since this can reduce to the environmental impacts they cause, as well as the discharge of greenhouse effect gas. The use of bio digesters for the treatment of these remainders has become an efficient process to avoid the exit of methane gas to the atmosphere, taking advantage of the biogas and other residues to produce electricity. The elaboration of a technical-economical evaluation of a pilot plant shows the costs of investment, maintenance, as well as the income that can be obtained by the total usage of these residues and the savings in the electrical power consumption. The analysis of this study demonstrates that the use of biogas through bio-digesters for the generation of electrical energy is a profitable option for the treatment of the residues, because the income by the sale of compost, blood flour, as well as the diminution of the electrical tariff, justifies the initial investment. These projects will be more attractive, if they use financing and are registered as MDL projects. [Spanish] Actualmente el tratamiento de los desechos solidos y liquidos en los rastros y mataderos municipales es poco pues se tiene la idea de que el tratamiento es costoso; sin embargo, es importante que se aprovechen ya que esto puede reducir los impactos ambientales que provocan, asi como la emision de gases de efecto invernadero. El uso de biodigestores para el tratamiento de estos desechos, se ha convertido en un proceso eficiente para evitar la salida de gas metano a la atmosfera, aprovechando el biogas y otros residuos para producir electricidad.

    Full text: In this work measurements of the Radon ({sup 222}Rn) concentration in the inside of historical buildings which date back to the end of the 17th and the beginning of the 18th Centuries have been carried out in the city of Cordoba (Argentina). Meteorological factors such as room temperature and atmospheric pressure have not shown to affect, to a great extent, the results obtained. By comparing the concentration of {sup 222}Rn in environments at different levels we inferred that the soil underlying the buildings does not represent an important source of {sup 222}Rn. The main occurrence of the element was found in room walls, which shows that local building materials are an important source of {sup 222}Rn. Among the materials used in these buildings are granitic rocks, and to a lesser extent, lime, sand and marble. The {sup 222}Rn concentrations recorded in some of the rooms surveyed reach values which are close to the minimum intervene level set by international standards in 4pCi/l. The study of the effects of ventilation in the concentration of {sup 222}Rn allows us to conclude that its values decrease to accepted levels by means of a natural and efficient ventilation of the rooms.

Las concentraciones de radon 222 se determinaron con un detector pasivo Radon Monitor 05-418, marca Victoreen. El mismo consta de una camara de difusion electrostatica y un detector de estado solido (Si) de juntura difundida. No se observo, en los resultados obtenidos, influencias causadas por factores meteorologicos como la temperatura ambiente y la presion atmosferica. Por comparacion de la concentracion de radon 222 en ambientes ubicados en distintas plantas se dedujo que el suelo subyacente bajo los edificios representa una fuente secundaria

    Using an improved global pseudospectral modeling algorithm we synthesize seismograms generated by oceanic and continental earthquakes. Attention is given to attenuation, to explicit modeling of boundary conditions at the ocean-bottom interface, simulation of the Rayleigh window and interface-wave propagation. The algorithm is based on Fourier and Chebyshev differential operators and a domain-decomposition technique - one grid for the fluid and another grid for the solid. Wave propagation in the oceanic and continent crusts and mantle is modeled by using a viscoelastic stress-strain relation based on memory variables. The main physical phenomena associated with an ocean-crust system are modeled, including Scholte waves, leaking Rayleigh waves, dispersive modes, and the Rayleigh-window phenomenon due to a minimum in the reflection coefficient of the ocean bottom, which has not been simulated with direct methods. In particular, we model Rayleigh modes (mainly the M11 mode), and coupled Rayleigh-Scholte waves, for which the dispersion relation is solved in simple cases. Also, we model the effects of random. [Spanish] El algoritmo de modulacion seudoespectral es mejorado y aplicado a la simulacion de sismogramas generados por sismos oceanicos y continentales, como atencion a la atenuacion y a la modelacion explicita de condiciones a la frontera en el fondo oceanico y a la simulacion de la ventana de Rayleigh y la propagacion en interfases. El algoritmo se basa en los operadores diferenciales de Fourier y de Chebyshev con una tecnica de decomposicion de dominios, una malla para el fluido y otra para el solido. Para la propagacion se usa una relacion de esfuerzo-deformacion basada en variables de memoria. Entre los fenomenos modelados se incluyen las ondas de Scholte, las ondas evanescentes de Rayleigh y los modos dispersivos, asi como la ventana de Rayleigh, un minimo del coeficiente de reflexion en el fondo oceanico que nunca ha sido simulado con metodos directos.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: El ensayo afronta dos facetas notoriamente controvertidas de García de la Huerta rescatándolas del menosprecio que han solido reservales los críticos. De un lado, se muestra la sensatez y la «normalidad» de muchas de las aseveraciones teóricas de Huerta, y del otro, su modus operandi como traductor a partir de un cotejo pormenorizado del texto de Xaira con el original voltairiano. En él, Huerta ha sabido ser fiel al espíritu del original a través de una traducción relativamente literal, en la que ha intervenido con ampliaciones y cambios estructurales que han dado al texto el sello inconfundible de una obra española y el carácter de una obra clásica y al tiempo romántica, como es el propio Zaïre: no sólo por el tema, sino sobre todo por el deseo y la capacidad de explicitar, con una dicción intensa, natural y arrebatada, aquellos sentimientos que el teatro romántico europeo aspira a expresar de forma inmediata emulando la música, y especialmente la ópera de la época, que vive a su lado inyectándole aspiraciones y logros.ABSTRACT: This essay deals with two notoriously controversial facets of García de la Huerta, rescuing them from the contempt critics have customarily reserved for them. On the one hand, the essay shows the common sense and «normality» of many of Huerta’s theoretical statements, and on the other, his modus operandi as translator, based on a detailed comparison of the text of Xaira with the original by Voltaire. In it Huerta succeeded in being faithful to the spirit of the original by means of a relatively literal translation, in which he intervened with elaborations and structural changes that have conferred upon the text the unmistakable seal of a Spanish work, as well as the character of a work both classical and romantic, as Zaïre itself is: not only for its theme, but above all for its desire and ability to make explicit, with an intense, natural and passionate diction, the feelings that

    In this paper, presents a methodology of how to calculate the emissions of CO{sub 2} (Carbon Dioxide) in cogeneration of plants for evaluate future cases with the type of fuel and fuel flow used in the plant. The methodology was in spreadsheets developed a series of stoichiometric balances. The methodology was done for three types of fossil fuels: solid, liquid and gas. The analysis is made only to the percentages of the items contained in the fuel flow automatically used and results in the combustion products in tons per hour. This method was compared with the results obtained in the software Thermoflow Inc. (Used in Gerencia de Procesos Termicos of Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas for evaluate various process systems that produce energy power) using different cogeneration systems, that is to say about the technology used emissions compared according to the amount of excess air for each type of technology and at one point before the gas cleaning systems. The results can be evaluated for emissions avoided through the fuel type used and developing a cogeneration plant compared to a conventional plant.

    On worldwide scale, one of the most important anthropogenic methane sources is landfill disposal for solid wastes. The main goal of this work was to quantify methane emissions at one landfill built in Merida, Mexico. This site had venting wells by which a passive control for biogas movement was exerted. At the venting wells, methane concentrations were measured monthly during a 6 months period. Methane surface emission rate was estimated with the close chamber technique. Obtained results indicated that there are both spatial and seasonal variations in biogas composition. The average methane value during the monitoring period was 21.9% (12.7 to 32.5 V/V) and the surface flow rate was in the range of 0 to 6,004 g CH{sub 4} m-2 d-1, with an average value of 1,480 g CH{sub 4} m-2 d-1, which is a high value in respect to these reported in publications. [Spanish] Entre las fuentes antropogenicas mas importantes de metano a escala mundial se encuentra la disposicion final de los residuos solidos. El objetivo de este trabajo fue cuantificar las emisiones de metano provenientes de un relleno sanitario en Merida, Mexico, en el que el movimiento del biogas se controlaba pasivamente utilizando pozos de venteo. Las concentraciones de metano se midieron mensualmente en los pozos de venteo del sitio a lo largo de un periodo de 6 meses. La tasa de emision superficial de metano se determino utilizando la tecnica de camara cerrada. Los resultados indicaron que existen variaciones considerables tanto espaciales como estacionales de la composicion del biogas proveniente de los pozos de venteo con un promedio de concentracion de metano en el sitio, durante todo el periodo de monitoreo, de 21.9% (12.7 a 32.5 V/V). Los flujos superficiales de gas medidos en diversos puntos a lo largo de la superficie del relleno sanitario tuvieron un promedio de 1,480 g CH{sub 4} m-2 d-1, lo que se considero un valor muy alto cuando se comparo con la informacion hallada en la literatura.

    The biofuels can be obtained from the biomass, are liquid, solid or gaseous from matter of vegetal or animal origin, by biological, chemical or physical processes and combinations of them. The biofuels appear as an alternating fuels in the transport sector, mainly due to the positive impact of greenhouse gases effect (GHG) and to the increase of oil prices. In theory the use of bioethanol and the biofuels, they not have CO{sub 2} emissions since this it is absorbed in the same amount by the cultures that generate them, as the corn or sugar cane. Our country has a deficit in the food production, mainly in corn, grain that can offer the opportunity not only to continue being the base of the national feeding, but also the raw material to produce bioethanol. The national yields are so diverse that they resemble to those of EUA or Africa, without a doubt this is indicative that is due to devise the way of increase the yields of this appraised culture, reach in average the six tons by hectare, improving the culture practice and access to fertilizers, water, transport, transparent markets and right prices. [Spanish] Los biocombustibles pueden ser obtenidos de la biomasa, son liquidos, solidos o gaseosos provenientes de material vegetal u origen animal, pueden obtenerse mediante procesos biologicos, quimicos o fisicos, y combinaciones de ellos. Se presentan como combustibles alternos en el sector transporte, debido principalmente al impacto positivo de la reduccion de gases de efecto invernadero (GEI) y al aumento de los precios del petroleo. En teoria el uso del bioetanol y los biocombustibles no produce emisiones de CO{sub 2} porque este se absorbe en la misma cantidad a traves de los cultivos que los generan, como el maiz y la cana de azucar. Mexico tiene deficit en la produccion de alimentos, principalmente maiz, grano que puede ofrecer la oportunidad no solo de continuar siendo la base de la alimentacion nacional, sino tambien la materia prima para producir bioetanol

    Chemical equilibrium of formation waters from seven oil wells of the Activo Luna field (Tabasco, Mexico) was modelled. Saturation indices of characteristic hydrothermal minerals were calculated at ambient and reservoir conditions in order to predict scaling potential of deep and surface installations. The salinity of waters was found to be in the range from 43,000 (well Escuintle 2) to 250,000 (well Lune 3B) mg/kg as total dissolved solids. The water samples were classified as sodium-chioride type. Ionic strength for the solutions was found to be between 0.75 and 6.5. Activity coefficients were estimated by virial (Pitzer equations) methods using the GEOCHEMIST WORKENCH (GWB) software. Minerals such as anhydrite, halite, alunite, fluorite and barite were found to be supersaturated at reservoir conditions. A solid scale sample obtained from well Luna-3B was analysed. Analysis indicate the presence of calcite, anhydrite, fluorite and sphalerite which suggest the occurrence of temperatures of at least 180 Celcius degrees with acidic conditions and high chemical corrosion potential. [Spanish] Se modelo el equilibrio quimico de aguas de formacion producidas por siete pozos petroleros pertenecientes al Activo Luna, en el estado de Tabasco, Mexico, se calcularon los indices de saturacion de minerales caracteristicos tanto en las condiciones ambiente como en las de yacimiento, con el proposito de apoyar el control de incrustaciones en las instalaciones superficiales y profundas. La salinidad de las salmueras se encontro en el rango de 43,000 (pozos Escuintle 2) a 250,000 (pozos Luna 3B) mg/kg de solidos disueltos totales y las muestras se clasificaron como del tipo clorurado-sodico. La fuerza ionica de las soluciones varia entre 0.75 y 6.5 molar, por lo que los coeficientes de actividad de la modelacion de equilibrio quimico se estimaron por metodos viriales empleando las ecuaciones de Pitzer mediante el programa GEOCHEMIST WORKBENCH (GWB).

    crecientes de energia sin generar efectos colaterales negativos que amenacen el entorno vital de las generaciones futuras? La energia nucleoelectrica no es una panacea: es una opcion que se combina con otras para dar respuesta a los problemas energeticos. Las expectativas acerca de la expansion del uso de la energia nucleoelectrica estan creciendo. Ademas del aumento de la demanda, estas expectativas tambien obedecen a la preocupacion por la seguridad energetica, asi como a la baja emision de gases de efecto invernadero en la generacion de energia nucleoelectrica y al solido historial de las centrales nucleares. Cada pais debe hacer sus propias opciones energeticas: no hay una medida que valga para todos. Pero para los paises interesados en incorporar la energia nucleoelectrica en sus estrategias de desarrollo sostenible es importante mantener abierta y accesible esa opcion energetica.

    ecuaciones de equilibrio, las relaciones deformacion-desplazamiento, esfuerzo-deformacion y de termoelasticidad para este caso en particular. El metodo de elementos finitos permite obtener una solucion numerica de un problema estructural. Para cada tipo de analisis, se desarrollaron modelos computacionales en tres dimensiones, incluyendo todos los componentes del alabe real, para evitar simplificaciones geometricas. El modelo de CFD consta de 3389821 celdas mixtas-hexaedros y tetraedros-, de los cuales 79% corresponden al fluido y 21% al solido. El modelo de FEA tiene 195279 nodos y 161005 elementos hexaedricos. Se desarrollo una interfaz para tomar la distribucion tridimensional de temperatura resultante del analisis aerotermico (CFD), e imponerles como cargas termicas en el subsecuente analisis estructural (FEA). Esta interfaz permite integrar virtualmente los modelos computacionales, a pesar de que tienen mallas diferentes, y que el modelo de CFD registra los datos en el centro de las celdas, mientras que el modelo de FEA los registra en los nodos. Se obtuvieron los perfiles de presion, temperatura y velocidad para el fluido y, temperatura y esfuerzos para el solido. Los resultados obtenidos son comparados con datos experimentales reportados en la literatura obteniendose resultados aceptables. Con este trabajo se genera informacion para estudios complementarios como son analisis de fallas y estimacion de vida residual.

    neutrons lents par les liquides comme l'ont souligne Egelstaff et ses colllaborateurs. Les auteurs calculent, a l'aide d'un modele stochastique, le spectre des frequences f({omega}) de la fonction d'auto-correlation des vitesses dans l'eau a 300{sup o}K et dans le plomb liquide a 620{sup o}K. Dans le cas de l'eau ils prevoient un maximum de la fonction f({omega}) correspondant a {Dirac_h} {omega}75{sup o}K. Dans le plomb, le maximum se manifeste a une valeur a peu pres analogue. II existe aussi un minimum de la fonction f({omega}) dans les deux cas. Larsson et Dahlborg ont observe un maximum de la fonction f({omega}) a la valeur d'{omega} prevue ci-dessus. Des observations faites recemment dans du plomb liquide par Cotter et al. confirment vraisemblablement les previsions des auteurs. (author) [Spanish] Una cuestion importante que se plantea respecto de la dispersion de neeutrones lentos por los liquidos es la siguiente: Existe un espectro de frecuencia de los liquidos analogo al de los solidos? para contestar a esta pregunta, basta demostrar que la funcion de amplitud {gamma}(t) de la funcion gaussiana de autocorrelacion espacio G{sup s}(r,t) puede expresarse, utilizando el espectro de frecuencias de la funcion de autocorreclation de velocidad, en form identica a la correspondiente a un solido armonico. Es decir, si se conoce el especro de frecuencias de la funcion de autocorrelacion de velocidad, se debe poder calcular la dispersion de neutrones lentos por los liquidos, como han senalado Egelstaff y colaboradores. Los autores calculan, utilizando un modelo estocastico de liquido, el espectro de frecuencia f({omega}) de la funcion de autocorrelacion de velocidad, en el caso del agua a 300{sup o}K y del plomo liquido a 620{sup o}K. Predicen para la primera un maximo de f({omega}) correspondiente a {Dirac_h}{omega} 75{sup o}K. Enel caso del plomo, el maximo se presenta tambien para el mismo valor de oj, aproximadamente. Ademas, en ambos casos f({omega})pasa por un minimo

    structures of the type Na{sub 4}ZrO{sub 4}, which are responsible for the increase in the absorption capacity. [Spanish] En los procesos de produccion de hidrogeno a partir de combustibles fosiles, la captura de CO{sub 2} a alta temperatura ha alcanzado un papel esencial al convertir estos, en procesos energeticamente mas eficientes. Un ejemplo es el reformado de metano de vapor mejorado con absorcion (SER), donde la captura de CO{sub 2} a alta temperatura (600 grados centigrados) provee ahorros en energia ({approx_equal} 23%) sobre el proceso convencional de reformacion (SMR). Parte importante de este concepto es el absorbente solido de CO{sub 2}, el cual debe presentar una adecuada capacidad de absorcion y rapidas cineticas de absorcion/regeneracion. Recientemente, se han desarrollado absorbentes de CO{sub 2} sinteticos que consisten en mezclas de oxidos base-Li. Estudios previos realizados en nuestro laboratorio, reportan que el zirconato de sodio (Na{sub 2}ZrO{sub 3}) presenta propiedades de absorcion/regeneracion superiores a los oxidos base-Li. El presente trabajo tiene como objetivo aumentar la capacidad de absorcion del Na{sub 2}ZrO{sub 3} a alta temperatura sin afectar significativamente las cineticas tanto de absorcion como de regeneracion de este mediante su promocion con Li. El Na{sub 2}ZrO{sub 3} fue sintetizado por reaccion en estado solido e impregnado con LiNO{sub 3} a diferentes relaciones Li/Na: 0, 0.03, 0.05, 0.1 y 0.25 (NZ, NZL3, NZL5, NZL10, NZL25). La caracterizacion consistio en XRD y SEM. La evaluacion como absorbente se realizo mediante TGA a 600 grados centigrados en 80% CO{sub 2} (absorcion) y 800 grados centigrados en aire (regeneracion). Los XRD indican solo la estructura Na{sub 2}ZrO{sub 3} en todas las muestras, pero las promovidas presentan un desplazamiento en sus senales respecto a las del Na{sub 2}ZrO{sub 3}, el cual se atribuye a la sustitucion de atomos de Na por Li. Los resultados de TGA indican que la adicion del Li en la estructura del

Enfin des essais faits en solutions concentrees dans le tetrachlorure de carbone montrent que dans ce cas il y a competition entre la degradation et la reticulation. (author) [Spanish] Los autores estudiaron los efectos ejercidos por las radiaciones emitidas por el cobalto-60 sobre muestras de poliacrilato de etilo de diferentes pesos moleculares, en estado solido y disueltas en benceno y tetracloruro de carbono; los ensayos se realizaron a la temperatura ambiente en ausencia y en presencia de aire. Los autores no observaron efecto de postirradiacion alguno. Al irradiar soluciones diluidas con dosis crecientes de rayos gamma en presencia de aire, comprobaron que la viscosidad intrinseca y la constante de sedimentacion experimentan una disminucion. Los resultados obtenidos pueden interpretarse admitiendo que se produce una degradacion de las moleculas de poliacrilato de etilo. Tanto el efecto directo como el indirecto son proporcionales a la dosis y varian segun el disolvente. Ambos son directamente proporcionales al peso molecular inicial del polimero. Los autores estudieron la influencia oxigeno y de algunos agentes inhibidores. Tambien han sometido a irradiacion muestras en estado solido. En este caso, la reticulacion se produce tanto en presencia como en ausencia de oxigeno. Esta reticulacion va acompanada de una degradacion de importancia variable. Por otra parte, los ensayos realizados con soluciones concentradas de poliacrilato de etilo en tetracloruro de carbono demuestran que el proceso de degradacion compite con el de reticulacion.

Ce four est concu pour une marche continue et une bonne transmission de la chaleur vers l'interieur du four; il vise a reduire au minimum les problemes de controle de la poussiere radioactive. Vu qu'on n'ajoute au systeme aucun gaz non condensable, on peut controler la poussiere d'une facon tres satisfaisante en condensant directement les gaz d'echappement et en faisant passer la faible partie non condensable par un dispositif d'epuration et un filtre absorbant. On a construit a Brookhaven un four experimental qui est actuellement utilise pour la mise au point du materiel et des operations. Ce four rotatif a un diametre de 20 cm et une longueur de 2,1 m; il peut calciner environ 22 1 de dechets a l'heure.

    To evaluate the distribution of lead in the natural resources of lake Chapala, the adsorption of this metal in bacteria was analyzed and, through published data and the application of a chemical equilibrium model, the risk associated with the consumption of fish and water was estimated. Adsorption experiments of lead in three bacterial strains and simulations of the distribution of lead in the water-sediment-bacteria system indicate that the distribution of lead in the lake depends on variations of water quality such as suspended solids, lead and biomass concentrations. Considering only the lead contained in the bottom sediments, the simulations suggest that concentrations do not exceed the limits nor the criteria for use and protection of water, sediments, and biota. Considering an additional source of lead that locally increases the concentration by a factor of ten, the amount of lead in water and sediments may exceed these limits. The bioaccumulation of lead in lake Chapala was evaluated through calculation of bioconcentration and biomagnification factors, using simulated and published data on lead in fish (Ayla Jay y Ford, 2001). The results indicate that lead may be concentrated 721 and 6,195 times in bacteria and fish, respectively. Furthermore, bioaccumulation of lead in the lake may occur mainly as bioconcentration in fish rather than biomagnification in the food chain.

Experimentos de adsorcion en tres cepas de bacterias y simulaciones de la distribucion en un sistema agua-sedimentos-bacterias indican que la distribucion del plomo en el lago depende de variaciones en calidad del agua tales como solidos suspendidos totales, plomo total y biomasa.

    Full Text Available This paper assesses the feasibility of using a spent fluid catalytic cracking catalyst (SFCC as precursor for the production of geopolymers. The mechanical and structural characterization of alkali-activated SFCC binders formulated with different overall (activator + solid precursor SiO2/Al2O3 and Na2O/SiO2 molar ratios are reported. Formation of an aluminosilicate ‘geopolymer’ gel is observed under all conditions of activation used, along with formation of zeolites. Increased SiO2/Al2O3 induces the formation of geopolymers with reduced mechanical strength, for all the Na2O/SiO2 ratios assessed, which is associated with excess silicate species supplied by the activator. This is least significant at increased alkalinity conditions (higher Na2O/SiO2 ratios, as larger extents of reaction of the spent catalyst are achieved. SiO2/Al2O3 and Na2O/SiO2 ratios of 2.4 and 0.25, respectively, promote the highest compressive strength (67 MPa. This study elucidates the great potential of using SFCC as precursor to produce sustainable ceramic-like materials via alkali-activation.Este artículo estudia la factibilidad de usar un catalizador gastado del proceso de craqueo (SFCC para la producción de geopolímeros. Se evalúan las características mecánicas y estructurales de los geopolímeros producidos con diferentes relaciones molares (activador + precursor solido de SiO2/Al2O3 y Na2O/SiO2. La formación de un gel geopolimérico de tipo aluminosilicato se observa a las diferentes condiciones evaluadas, así como la formación de zeolitas. Un incremento en la relación SiO2/Al2O3 genera geopolímeros de baja resistencia mecánica, a las diferentes relaciones molares Na2O/SiO2 evaluadas, como consecuencia del exceso de especies silicato provenientes del activador. Este efecto es menos significativo al incrementar las condiciones de alcalinidad (mayores relaciones Na2O/SiO2, ya que un mayor grado de reacción del catalizador gastado es alcanzado. Las

    Full Text Available No sentido de desenvolver uma alternativa ao processo convencional decentrifugacao realizou-se neste trabalho um estudo da microfiltracao para clarificar o suco tropical de maracuja. A influencia da pressao transmembrana e do pre-tratamento enzimatico do suco, foram estudadas no processo de clarificacao por microfiltracao. Os ensaios de clarificacao por microfiltracao do suco tropical de maracuja foram realizados numa unidade de microfiltracao construida em aco inox. As membranas ceramicas usadas apresentam diametro medio de corte de 0,3 e 0,8 ƒÊm. Os niveis de pressao transmembrana foram de 1,0 e 3,0 bar num processo isotermico a 35oC. Os niveis de concentracao de enzima Cytrozym Ultra L utilizados no pre-tratamento do suco foram de 100 e 200 ppm. A condicao de microfiltracao que resultou num suco de boa qualidade foi com a membrana de 0,3 ƒÊm operada a 1,0 bar com suco pre-tratado com 100 ppm de enzima. Nesta condicao, obteve-se fluxo de permeado igual 56 kg h-1 m-2 e obtendo-se 100% na reducao de solidosem suspensao e 97% na reducao da turbidez. Comparativamente o processo de centrifugacao com o mesmo suco apresentou resultados praticamente equivalentes, mas com uma reducao de solidos suspensos inferior a de 100% observada para a microfiltracao, sendo a obtencao de um suco isento de particulas suspensas, um dos principais objetivosdeste trabalho.Aiming at n alternative to the conventional centrifuge process of clarification, this work presents a study of the microfiltration processes to clarify the tropical juice of passion fruit.

    More than 100 years ago. It was inferred the existence of secondary currents in open channels on the basis of the fact that the maximum velocity occurred just below the free surface indeed another one, the cyclic variation of the concentration of suspended sediment in the span wise direction of them. Gibson, estimated that the velocity of the secondary currents would be about 5% of mainstream velocity. In spite of their apparent weakness, the secondary currents play an essential role in the lateral transfer of momentum, energy heat and mass in a channel, and thus their distributions show variations in all three dimensions. In the same form, for the most part they are responsible of the bed patterns in high content sediment suspended flows. The importance of secondary flows is manifested on the fact of the introduction from vorticity concept. In this work, some results obtained with a 3-D Eulerian model to which has coupled the statistical vorticity equation, are shown. Correlations U{sub i}W{sub j} were modeled according to U{sub i}U{sub j} correlations using the fluid flow turbulence properties. Model is applied to a flow deformed by a three dimensional obstacle at the bottom. Simulation results of the vorticity show similarities with other flow patterns behaviors found in experimental investigations. This work will be used as a background to subsequent studies concerning dynamical processes of the particles movement on the bottom of a channel. [Spanish] Hace mas de cien anos, se infirio la existencia de corrientes secundarias basandose en el hecho de que la velocidad maxima en canales se encuentra justo debajo de la superficie libre, y el de la variacion ciclica de solidos suspendidos en la direccion transversal de un canal.

A pesar de su aparente debilidad, las corrientes secundarias juegan un papel esencial en la transferencia lateral de cantidad de

    Full text: This work shows the fluctuations of indoor radon concentration in some rooms placed inside a Cordoba Factory Complex. The measurements were performed by Victoreen Radon Monitor. The system was shaped to sample single radon concentration values after one hour integration. It utilizes a passive diffusion chamber and a silicon diffused junction detector. A portion of decay products will plate-out onto the detector and emit alpha particles into the depletion region of a diffused junction detector. The alpha energy is deposited in the detector in the form of ionization which generates a charge pulse. Only alpha pulses of an energy level similar Po-218 and Po-214 are detected. The study of the meteorological parameters shows that the daily fluctuations of the radon concentration respond to the transport and dispersion processes of radon gas through the air. Air temperature, wind's direction and speed are found to be fundamentals parameters in the observed time behavior. The meteorological data were obtained by a portable station (Davis Weathe Monitor II). The radon concentration present a maximum value (1850 Bq/m{sup 3}) at the night and a minimum value (150 Bq/m{sup 3}) at the day. (author)S.

    buongoverno convincendolo a praticare la clemenza, elevata al rango di virtù cardinale. Ma in un momento in cui a Roma lo stoicismo appare associato, nella figura di Catone, agli ideali repubblicani, l’opera partecipa anche di un dibattito interno alla Stoa. Seneca a volte afferma la sua vicinanza allo stoicismo ortodosso per giustificare la sua accettazione della monarchia assoluta e il primo piano da lui accordato alla clemenza, essenziale in questo tipo di regime. Sul piano istituzionale il trattato senecano appare solido; per quanto concerne la clemenza egli cerca di far evolvere la dottrina pur rimanendo all’interno delle categorie stoiche. La storia mostra che Seneca non ha convinto, ma resta il fatto che il De clementia è l’opera di un stoico autentico.

    Thermal water and gas discharges south-east of El Chichon volcano, Mexico are associated mainly with NW-SE oriented fault systems. Spring discharges include i) waters with Na-Cl composition and TDS>3000 mg/L; ii) waters with Ca-SO{sub 4} composition and TDS values between 1400 and 2300 mg/L; iii) waters with Na-Cl composition and TDS of 800 to 2400 mg/L and sulphate content up to 650 mg/L and iv) waters with Ca-HCO{sub 3} composition and low salinity (TDS <250mg/L). Most of these waters are associated with free-gas discharges of N{sub 2} (up to 93 % by vol.), CO{sub 2} (2.4 to 31.2 % by vol.) and Ar (up to 1.25 % by vol.) with a predominant meteoric origin. H{sub 2}S is present only in gas samplers collected at El Azufre (up to 1.1 % by vol.). The {delta}13C CO{sub 2} values are always below -9.7% (PDB) and suggest a partially biogenic origin for CO{sub 2}. Chemical and isotopic features of spring discharges indicate that fluid circulation in the Sierra de Chiapas is mainly regulated by meteoric waters that tend to infiltrate the upper and middle-Cretaceous carbonate units up to the lower Cretaceous-upper Jurassic evaporitic formations (by Lopez-Ramos, 1982). The latter provide the main source of the species in solution. No evidence for high-to-medium enthalpy systems at depth beneath the Sierra de Chiapas has been found.

    Leachates are formed as a result of the percolation of liquids, through the solid wastes in stabilization process. Their composition is variable and highly toxic; therefore, leachates treatment is a complex task. Due to the high permeability of the soil of the Yucatan Peninsula leachates represent a high risk to health. Fenton type oxidation and adsorption treatment have been tested, and they have showed better results than other types of biological or physicochemical treatment. Fenton process consists in treating the contaminant load with a combination of H{sub 2}O{sub 2} and FeSO{sub 4} under acidic conditions. Experiments were conducted in order to determine if filtration was better than the sedimentation of the sludges. The optimum contact time and the best relations [Fe{sup 2+}]/[H{sub 2}O{sub 2}] and [COD]/[H{sub 2}O{sub 2}] were determined. Subsequently, the oxidized samples were filtered and the adsorption process was tested using two columns in series packed with activated carbon. It was concluded that the sludge generated by the Fenton process was removed more efficiently through filtration than sedimentation. Optimal contact times were 5 min for COD removal, and 1 hour for colour removal; process time was set to one hour in order to protect the activated carbon. The best relations for [Fe{sup 2+}]/[H{sub 2}O{sub 2}] and [COD]/[H{sub 2}O{sub 2}] were 0.6 and 9 respectively. The maximum removal efficiency after the adsorption process was 98.9% for COD and 100% for colour at zero time of the column. A final biodegradability index of 0.24 was reached after the Fenton-adsorption tests.

Da un censimento dei capi alelvati, disaggregati per ASL, si valuta il carico organico prodotto e conseguentemente vengono indicate modalita' di gestione corretta degli allevamenti e tecnologie adeguate per lo smaltimento delle deiezioni nel rispetto della recente normativa. La separazione solido-liquido delle deiezioni, con tecniche tradizionali (vibrovagli, centrifughe) consente di definire due vie di trasformazione come il compostaggio per le frazioni solide e la depurazione con processi a membrana della frazione liquida. Lo studio mira a salvaguardare i contenuti strategici d'intervento nel settore come: il miglioramento delle condizioni igieniche di stabulazione, la difesa del benessere degli animali, la gestione corretta delle deiezioni applicando tecnologie innovative e flessibili. In questo modo si puo' sviluppare un processo che riduca gli inconvenienti ambientali e di salute pubblica delle deiezioni e produca un fertilizzante organico di qualita', importante e insostituibile per lo sviluppo agronomico.

    principal objetivo desta tese de doutoramento foi desenvolver um modelo para otimizar o desenho e operacao de sistemas de GD para o setor da construcao de edificios comerciais em Portugal, considerando os respetivos Impactes de Ciclo de Vida (IAVC) e Custos de Ciclo de Vida (CCV), de modo a satisfazer as necessidades energeticas do edificio. Tres tipos de tecnologias de cogeracao (Micro-Turbinas, Motores de combustao interna, e Celulas combustiveis de Oxido solido), e dois tipos de tecnologias de energia solar, solar termica e fotovoltaica, constituem os sistemas de GD que sao acoplados aos sistemas convencionais. Foi desenvolvido um modelo de CV, tendo em conta todos os impactes relacionados com a construcao e operacao dos sistemas de energia, bem como os processos a montante relacionados com a producao do GN. Em particular, o mix de GN consumido em Portugal em 2011 foi identificado (60% da Nigeria, 40% da Argelia) e os impactes relativos a cada uma das vias de abastecimento foram avaliados separadamente para quatro categorias de impacte ambiental: Consumo de Energia Primaria (CEP), Gases com Efeito de Estufa (GEE), acidificacao, e eutrofizacao. Devido a importancia das emissoes de GEE na formulacao de politicas, foi tambem realizada uma analise de incerteza as emissoes de GEE do GN fornecido a Portugal. Foi desenvolvido um modelo matematico, em linguagem de Programacao General Algebraic Modeling System (GAMS), que utiliza os resultados da ACV dos sistemas de energia e as suas implicacoes economicas para minimizar o CCV e IACV ao longo de um horizonte de planeamento definido pelo decisor. Foram derivadas fronteiras otimas de Pareto, representando as relacoes entre o tipo de IACV (CEP, GEE, acidificacao, eutrofizacao) e CCV decorrentes da satisfacao das necessidades energeticas do edificio. Para aumentar a robustez do modelo, dada a incerteza dos precos dos combustiveis (GN e eletricidade), foi desenvolvido um modelo de custos robusto para os sistemas de GD, que e menos

    Full Text Available The compression ratio of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW is an essential parameter for evaluation of waste settlement. Since it is relatively time-consuming to determine compression ratio from oedometer tests and there exist difficulties associated with working on waste materials, it will be useful to develop models based on waste physical properties. Therefore, present research attempts to develop proper prediction models using ANFIS and ANN models. The compression ratio was modeled as a function of the physical properties of waste including dry unit weight, water content, and biodegradable organic content. A reliable experimental database of oedometer tests, taken from the literature, was employed to train and test the ANN and ANFIS models. The performance of the developed models was investigated according to different statistical criteria (i.e. correlation coefficient, root mean squared error, and mean absolute error recommended by researchers. The final models have demonstrated the correlation coefficients higher than 90% and low error values; so, they have capability for acceptable prediction of municipal solid waste compression ratio. Furthermore, the values of performance measures obtained for ANN and ANFIS models indicate that the ANFIS model performs better than ANN model.   Resumen El índice de compresión de residuos sólidos es un parámetro esencial para la evaluación del asentamiento de un basurero municipal.

El embalado resulta a menudo util como complemento de un sistema de recogida de desechos solidos. Se ha estudiado una gran variedad de procesos para los desechos liquidos. El autor describe los mas tipicos procesos y facilita datos practicos al respecto. Desechos de elevada actividad - A veces los gases se evacuan directamente por medio de chimeneas pero con mas frecuencia es necesario tratarlos. Esto puede hacerse por depuracion quimica, separacion del yodo en recipientes de plata, extraccion de los gases nobles y filtracion. En ciertos casos, los solidos muy contaminados deben ser descontaminados in situ antes de trasladarlos a otro lugar. Actualmente, la dificultad mayor con que la industria tropieza en materia de eliminacion de desechos es la que suscitan los desechos liquidos de elevada actividad. Se ha tratado de allanar esta dificultad con diversos procedimientos; reduccion del volumen de los desechos modificando el tratamiento; concentracion de los desechos ; solidificacion de los desechos liquidos por concentracion, utilizacion de cemento portland, adsorcion en arcillas u otras sustancias naturales o calcinacion.

(author) [Spanish] Los autores han estudiado las fases liquida y solida del HF, HCI y HBr, entre 30 y 1200 cm{sup 1}, recurriendo a la dispersion inelastica de neutrones frios (0,005 eV). Estas mediciones se realizaron a fin de examinar sistematicamente la influencia que ejerce el aumento del grado de electronegatividad y del tamano de los aniones sobre los movimientos moleculares de baja frecuencia, tanto en fase solida como liquida. Se estudio en primer lugar el HF por saberse -segun datos obtenidos en experimentos de difraccion realizados con rayos X- que en el estado solido forma largas cadenas enlazadas en zigzag por el hidrogeno. El espectro de los neutrones inelasticamente dispersos en las fases liquida y solida del HF pone de relieve el alto grado de asociacion que existe en el estado solido como consecuencia del enlace hidrogeno. Los autores han comparado, con fines de interpretacion, los datos correspondientes al HF con datos analogos sobre la dispersion en el caso de los iones HF{sub 2}{sup -} y H{sub 2}F{sub 3}{sup -}, que presentan estructuras semejantes a las de las unidades que comprenden, en el HF, las cadenas enlazadas en zigzag por el hidrogeno. Tambien compararon esos datos con los resultados de las mediciones Raman y del espectro infrarrojo en los iones HFJ. Estas comparaciones permitieron distinguir entre las caracteristicas de frecuencia de una sola unidad, y de las caracteristicas de la cadena entera y de los modos reticulares de baja frecuencia.

Dichas muestras se someten a un tratamiento quefmico para extraer el plutonio, que se deposita por electrolisis sobre un pequeno disco de acero inoxidable a fin de obtener una fuente 'delgada' en que autoabsorcion de la actividad alfa es despreciable. Normalmente, la exposicion de personas por razones profesionales es tal que la cantidad de sustancia radiactiva recogida de esta manera resulta sumamente pequena, siendo necesario medir con precision la debil actividad de las mencionadas muestras. El detector a base de semiconductores presenta sobre otros tipos de detectores (por ejemplo, contadores de centelleo o contadores proporcionales de corriente gaseosa) la ventaja de que permite operar con un fondo mucho mas reducido y, por tanto, determinar actividades mas bajas. Para estas mediciones, se suele utilizar dos tipos de aparatos con detectores de estado solido. El mas simple de ellos esta provisto de un detector de semiconductores para medir la actividad alfa total de la muestra. Pero si hay presentes otros emisores alfa, es mas practico emplear el detector de estado solido como espectrometro para determinar correctamente el contenido de plutonio, dado que analizando la amplitud de los impulsos se pueden discriminar los rayos alfa de 6,14 MeV emitidos por el plutonio de los procedentes de otros nueclidos. Para los analisis de energia se utilizan dos tipos de aparatos con detectores de semiconductores. El mas sencillo esta provisto de un detector de 20 mm de diametro, conectado a un circuito provisto dedos discriminadores de amplitud de impulsos que accionan sendos dispositivos de registro mecanico reajustables, graduandose los niveles de discriminacion de modo que abarquen el pico debido a las particulas alfa del {sup 239}Pu.

Ces scintigrammes montrent que le collimateur de 14 cm a une plus grande efficacite et une plus grande resolution. Sur un scintigramme ({sup 198}Au) de chien obtenu au moyen du collimateur de 16,5 cm, on a discerne nettement une zone active d'un diametre apparent inferieur a 6 mm; l'activite n'etait que cinq fois superieure au bruit de fond du aux tissus, mais la zone active etait nettement separee par un espace d 0,6 cm d'une source environ cinquante fois plus intense ayant un diametre de 1,8 cm. (author) [Spanish] Los 'colimadores enfocados' permiten utilizar detectores de grandes dimensiones que dan un indice de recuento mayor sin perdida del poder de resolucion espacial. Como estos colimadores tienen muchos canales dirigidos hacia un mismo punto se obtiene con ellos una especie de efecto 'de enfoque'. Los tabiques de esc' canales son necesariamente delgados y, por consiguiente, le' rayos gamma los atraviesan en detrimento de la resolucion espacial. A fin de reducir esa penetracion se han empleado, para detectores de 3 pulg de diametro, colimadores de wolframio y oro, de preferencia a los de plomo. Si se reduce la penetracion empleando un colimador de plomo mas largo se malogra la finalidad perseguida ya que el indice de recuento disminuye, a no ser que se emplee tambien un detector de mayores dimensiones. Los autores han disenado y construido un colimador de plomo de 91 canales para emplearlo con un detector de Nal(Tl) de 5,25 pulg (13,5 cm) por 3 pulg (7,5 cm). El foco esta situado a 9,5 pulg (24 cm) del detector, y el angulo solido de admision es igual al de los colimadores enfocados que se emplean corrientemente con detectores de 3 pulg. La longitud maxima es de 6,5 pulg (16 ,5 cm); la normal es de 5,5 pulg (14 cm). Para estas longitudes, los 'circulos de resolucion' opticos son, respectivamente, de 0.476 pulg (1

Les travaux approfondis sur la cinetique de la polymerisation radiochimique qui ont ete faits recemment par la methode calorimetrique et l'observation du signal RPE a l'Institut de physique chimique ont montre qu'un role essentiel incombe a la reaction radiochimique specifique qui s'opere durant l'irradiation. Des que l'irradiation est interrompue, le processus de polymerisation de l'acrilonitryle (entre-196 et -140{sup o}C) et de l'acetate de vinyle (entre-196 et -100{sup o}C) s'arrete bien que le signal RPE conserve sa forme et son intensite et que les ions crees sous l'action des rayonnements aient une duree de vie prolongee. Les resultats de ces experiences laissent supposer que les etats d'oxydation de courte duree peuvent jouer un role important dans l a polymerisation radiochimique de certains monomeres en phase solide. Une telle polymerisation ''sous le faisceau'' s'opere pratiquement sans aucune energie d'activation contrairement a la polymerisation lente qui se fait avec la meme energie d'activation que le processus en phase liquide.

    The production of hydrogen by the water-gas shift (WGS) normally requires multiple catalytic reactions followed by the separation of CO{sub 2} to obtain highly pure H{sub 2}. Nevertheless, using the combination of the WGS reaction and the solid-gas reaction between CO{sub 2} and an absorbent, the production of H{sub 2} and the separation of CO{sub 2} can be accomplished in a single step AEWGS (Absorption Enhanced Water Gas Shift). This combination of reactions was studied at the laboratory scale using a quartz fixed-bed reactor. The absorbents tested were calcined dolomite (CaO*MgO) and sodium zirconate (Na{sub 2}ZrO{sub 3}) in catalyst/absorbent mixtures (cat/abs) with weight ratios of 1/1, 1/2 and 2/1, using a high-temperature catalyst from the WGS reaction, synthesized in the laboratory (Fe-Cr). All the tests used 3cm{sup 3} of cat/abs, composed of 5% CO, 15% H{sub 2}O, 10.5% He and 69.5% N{sub 2}, with a spatial velocity (SV) of 1500h-1, 600 degrees Celsius and atmospheric pressure. The catalyst presented 100% conversion of CO to CO{sub 2}, maintaining its surface area after the reaction (12 m{sup 2}/g). The results with a dry base using the cat/abs mixture of 1/2 and CaO*MgO generated 95% H{sub 2} with 5% CO-free CO{sub 2}, while with Na{sub 2}ZrO{sub 3}, the maximum concentration of H{sub 2} was 70%, with 29% CO{sub 2} and 1% of CO without reacting. The results using only CaO*MgO (as a bifunctional material) presented a maximum H{sub 2} concentration of 96% and a minimum of 4% CO{sub 2}, as well as 7% CO without reaction, which was attributed to kinetic effects.

    Full Text Available L’andare di Giovanni Paolo II alla casa del Padre ha toccato profondamente tutti, credenti e non credenti. Il modo in cui il Papa viveva i suoi ultimi giorni, segnati dalla sofferenza, la sua pasqua dalla morte alla vita in Dio, ha confermato definitivamente la sua grandezza. Agli occhi del mondo è sfavillata la sua bella umanità e allo stesso tempo si è aperto unenorme e doloroso vuoto. La vicenda dell’uomo rassomiglia a quella di un albero: si può valutarne bene la grandezza, salute e posto nel paesaggio solo quando è abbattuto. L’umanità del Santo Padre era tutta tessuta dei valori massimi di verità, libertà, amore... Il Papa li realizzava con radicalismo e coraggio che però sapeva unire alla mitezza e rispetto verso gli altri. Questa difficile sintesi testimonia il suo genio morale. Il fondamento dell’umanità di Giovanni Paolo II era la fede in Dio che rafforza le naturali capacità dell’uomo e permette di unire tutti gli elementi della realtà umana, inclusa la sofferenza e morte, in un armonioso insieme. Il legame con Dio non lo separava dagli uomini, ma lo apriva ancor di più a loro. Infatti, accanto a lui si radunavano sia giovani che adulti ed egli li univa sulla base dei valori che riconosceva. Col passare del tempo, la comunità attorno a lui aumentava, nel giorno del suo funerale abbracciava pressoché tutto il mondo. Ciò dimostra la giustezza dell’antropologia evangelica alla cui luce costruiva tutta la sua vita. I mezzi con cui il Santo Padre foggiava la sua umanità erano semplici, ma esigenti. La fonte della forza e della luce costituiva per lui soprattutto una fervida e costante preghiera, frequente partecipazione ai sacramenti e sistematica meditazione sulla Parola di Dio. A queste pratiche religiose univa un solido studio delle diverse materie: letteratura, filosofia, teologia. Con passione perseguiva la verità, voleva raggiungere l’essenza delle cose e fenomeni, trattava le questioni del

Producto de la pirolisis se obtiene carbonizado, gasesincondensables y un líquido condensado (bio-oil,compuesto de alcoholes, ácidos carboxílicos, alcanos y compuestos aromáticos. Las pruebas se realizaron en un rango de temperaturas entre 500-700°C y se encontró que a 600°C el rendimiento del proceso fue máximo con un 23.3% de biocombustible condensado. La composición de los gases a 600°C fue CO22,720%, H20,703 % , CH41,289%, CO 2,472 % y el resto es N2. La mayor cantidad de gases incondensables se obtuvo a 700°C pero el rendimiento del bio-oil es solo del 14.9% en peso. Los resultados evidencian que la temperatura del reactor es un parámetro importante en la composición de los gases y el rendimiento del bio-oil.

La insolubilidad del molibdeno impide concentrar por evaporacion las soluciones de los productos de fision. Por tal motivo, los autores han estudiado la posibilidad de solubilizar el molibdeno agregandole reactivos tales como el hierro o los iones fosforicos. De este modo, es posible obtener soluciones finales de 60 g/l Mo con hierro, 100 g/l Mo con PO{sub 4}H{sub 3}. Los volumenes que es preciso almacenar siguen siendo importantes (sobre todo con el hierro) y por eso se ha estudiado la calcinacion de los nitratos en un lecho fluidizado. La reaccion tiene lugar a los 400 Degree-Sign C aproximadamente. El comportamiento del rutenio y la friabilidad del solido calcinado (importante formacion de particulas menudas) ha inducido a los autores a reemplazar este procedimiento por el de preparacion de vidrios fosfAtados.

    des divergences positives par rapport a l'etat parfait lorsque les concentrations d'antimoine present sont peu importantes. L'auteur a calcule la quantite de chaleur necessaire pour dissoudre l'antimoine dans le fer, ainsi que l'excedent d'entropie molaire partielle d'apres la temperature d'activite. Il s'est servi des resultats obtenus pour determiner avec precision la ligne qui marque la limite de solubilite de l'antimoine dans le fer alpha. Etant donne que les ferroalliages d'antimoine avaient ete obtenus par voie de saturation de diffusion, et non par refroidissement a partir de l'etat liquide, il n'y a pas eu de liquefaction. L'auteur a donc pu determiner d'une facon sure la constante du reseau des alliages et la relation entre cette constante et la concentration de l'antimoine. La limite de solubilite determinee d'apres les donnees radiographiques correspond a celle que l'on obtient en employant l'antimoine-124. (author) [Spanish] La memoria propone un metodo para determinar la actividad termodinamica del antimonio disuelto en el hierro alfa, que se basa en el estudio de la reparticion de este metal entre dos fases: plomo liquido y hierro solido. El metodo permitio observar que las soluciones solidas de antimonio en hierro se desvian en sentido positivo del estado ideal. Las soluciones de este elemente en el hierro obedecen a la ley de Henry en un intervalo muy extenso de concentraciones. Los experimentos especiales realizados para estudiar la reparticion del antimonio entre el plomo y el hierro en estado liquido han demostrado que, en estado liquido, el sistema hierro-antimonio se caracteriza por su desviacion positiva respecto del estado ideal cuando la concentracion del segundo elemento es baja. Los autores calcularon el calor necesario para la disolucion del antimonio en el hierro alfa, y el incremento de entropia molar parcial a partir de la temperatura de activacion. Los resultados obtenidos han servido para establecer con precision el limite de

    'ici avait ete appliquee uniquement a la diffusion en volume. En fait les auteurs montrent que l'on peut, par mesure de l'activite globale restante en fonction de la profondeur de penetration, distinguer la part de l'activite due a l'autodiffusion en volume de celle due a l'autodiffusion intergranulaire. L'interet de la methode est donc de suivre en continu sur un meme echantillon le passage de l'autodiffusion en volume a l'autodiffusion intergranulaire. Cette methode nouvelle a ete appliquee a la mesure des constantes d'autodiffusion en volume dans le fer gamma entre 1.260 Degree-Sign et 918 Degree-Sign C et celle aux joints des grains entre 1.020 Degree-Sign et 918 Degree-Sign C. (author) [Spanish] En vista de las dificultades que presenta la medicion exacta de los coeficientes de autodifusion, tanto masica como intergranular, en ciertos intervalos de temperatura en los que ambos fenomenos coexisten, los autores han vuelto a estudiar el metodo clasico de seccionamiento. Efectivamente, han comprobado que para un solido semi-infinito, la concentracion de atomos radiactivos C (x{sub n}), despues de la difusion, a la distancia x{sub n} del deposito radiactivo inicial es una funcion simple de la actividad global que queda en la muestra despues de una abrasion hasta la profundidad x{sub n}. Esta conclusion surge de la generalizacion de la formula de GRUZIN, que hasta ahora solo se habia aplicado a la difusion en volupien. Los autores han demostrado que, midiendo la actividad global que queda en funcion de la profundidad de penetracion, se puede distinguir la parte de la actividad debida a la autodifusion masica, de la actividad atribuible a la autodifusion intergranular. Por lo tanto, el interes del metodo estriba en que permite observar de modo continuo en una misma muestra la transicion de la autodifusion masica a la autodifusion intergranular. Los autores han aplicado este nuevo metodo a la medicion, en el hierro en fase gamma, de las constantes de autodifusion masica entre

    exageradamente rigida de la solucion obtenida por el metodo de los elementos finitos estandar. Entre los elementos implementados cabe destacar el basado en la formulacion mixta u/p, que contiene una interpolacion adicional de grados de libertad de presion. Estos grados de libertad adicionales habitualmente son internos al elemento en mecanica de solidos. En este trabajo se ha desarrollado e implementado en DULCINEA una familia de elementos tridimensionales mixtos en grandes deformaciones que incluye el caso particular BMIX 27/27/4, basado en la formulacion u/p, constituido por 27 nudos, con 27 puntos de integracion estandar y 4 grados de libertad de presiones, y que pasa la condicion Inf-Sup o de Babuska-Brezzi. Sin embargo, se ha observado que la formulacion u/p presenta ciertas limitaciones bajo las hipotesis conjuntas de anisotropia elastica y anisotropia plastica. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)

    relativamente poco estudio en comparacion con el enorme esfuerzo realizado durante los pasados 30 anos en elucidar los aspectos macroscopicos y fenomenologicos de la criticidad. La firma de la criticidad a nivel molecular es el tema central del que trata esta investigacion. El objetivo del trabajo descrito en esta tesis fue el de investigar las propiedades de superficie y transporte de mezcla liquidas binarias en las cercanias del punto critico. Las propiedades de superficie principalmente relativas a la adsorcion y al comportamiento humectante en las interfaces vapor-liquido y liquido-solido. La propiedad de transporte estudiada fue la viscosidad al corte a nivel masivo o macroscopico y la correspondiente propiedad a nivel molecular o microscopico, la microviscosidad. El trabajo presentado en esta tesis comprende las mediciones experimentales y las interpretaciones teoricas sacadas de estos resultados.El trabajo experimental fue variado,usando tanto tecnicas clasicas como modernas.

    employed in the present study. The bubble behaviour was observed from the numerical solution of the RPNNP equation that describes the motion of a gas filled bubble in a homogeneous phase. This equation was solved numerically employing the Fourorder Runge-Kutta method. Finally, a preliminary study of surface process in the presence of ultrasound is presented. Erosion current events were recorded at high time solution. These current events were attributed to the reoxidation of the exposed metal as a result of cavitation events. This study shows that surface erosion can be electrochemically investigated in-situ withing a cavitating media. [Espanol] El efecto del ultrasonido en procesos electroquimicos ha sido investigado empleando un micro-electrodo dentro de un medio cavitante. El transporte de masa transitorio fue realzado fuertemente en la presencia de ultrasonido. Altos indices de la transferencia de masa de hasta 1.5 cm s-1 fueron observados. Estos altos indices de la transferencia de masa fueron atribuidos a dos procesos de la cavitacion. Primero, el colapso de la burbuja en/o cerca de la interfase solido-liquido con la formacion consiguiente de un microjet liquido de alta velocidad dirigido hacia la superficie del electrodo. En segundo lugar, movimiento de la burbuja cerca o dentro de la capa de difusion o del electrodo. Tambien se registraron los simples transitorios de corriente a una alta resolucion de tiempo. Estos transitorios simples de corriente fueron atribuidos a la perturbacion a corto plazo del campo de difusion del micro-electrodo debido a los impactos de cavitacion del colapso de la burbuja seguido por una relajacion de largo tiempo del campo de la difusion de nuevo al estado estable. La influencia de la fuente ultrasonica a la separacion del electrodo, la temperatura total de la solucion, el potencial del electrodo y el tamano del electrodo sobre la magnitud de transitorios de corriente tambien fue estudiada. Todos estos parametros afectaron marcadamente

    ,7 x 10{sup -4} min{sup -1}. En ambos casos, la velocidad de intercambio R es de primer orden respecto a la concentracion del complejo; en solucion acida R es casi independiente de las concentraciones de bromuro y de hidrogeno, asi como de la fuerza ionica. Ello indica que el intercambio tiene lugar por un mecanismo de disociacion. Las energias de activacion calculadas para los complejos de rodio y de iridio son, respectivamente, 24 y 23 kcal/mol. Se han medido las constantes de velocidad de intercambio isotopico de {sup 36}Cl para el complejo trans- [Rh(en){sub 2}Cl{sub 2}] entre 60 y 100 Degree-Sign C y se ha obtenido una energia de activacion de Arrhenius de 25 kcal/mol. Tambien en este caso, el incremento de la velocidad R es de primer orden con respecto a la concentracion del complejo y solo depende ligeramente de la concentracion de hidrogeno o de cloruro. Al parecer, el intercambio se produce por aquacion. La velocidad de intercambio de este complejo a 60 Degree-Sign C en solucion metanolica de HCl es tan baja que no puede medirse. Los intercambios del trans- [Co(en){sub 2}Cl{sub 2}] + y del trans- [Co(en){sub 2}Br{sub 2}]{sup +} con haluros se midieron en solucion metanolica entre 30 y 60 Degree-Sign C. Tambien se ha investigado el intercambio de haluros en el [OsCl{sub 6}]{sup 2-} y el [Osl{sub 6}]{sup 2-}, en acidos clorhidrico o yodhidrico disueltos en metanol o etanol. En la memoria se comparan las velocidades medidas con los valores hallados anteriormente para el intercambio isotopico del hexabromo complejo correspondiente.

    obtained. This value is small when it is compared with the effect that introduces the deposition of slag in these banks of tubes, that is in the order of 50 to 250 Celsuis degrees approximately, for this interval of thermal flows. [Espanol] Debido a la corrosion por alta temperatura se tiene un serio problema por indisponibilidad y eficiencia de los generadores de vapor en las centrales termoelectricas. Una de las partes mas afectadas por este fenomeno son los bancos de tubos de los sobrecalentadores. Con el objeto de disminuir dicho problema se pretende aplicar a los tubos antes mencionados un recubrimiento metalico a base de niquel y cromo (80Ni20Cr), la deposicion del recubrimiento se hace por el metodo de termorrociado de polvos por flama. El espesor del recubrimiento una vez que ha sido depositado es del orden de 500mm, es indudable que el flujo termico entre los gases de combustion y el fluido conducido en los tubos se ve afectado. Por esto es importante conocer la conductividad termica del recubrimiento a fin de evaluar el impacto que se tiene en el funcionamiento del generador de vapor. Esta necesidad es la que da lugar al presente proyecto de tesis, en el cual se disena una tecnica que permite medir la conductividad termica del recubrimiento. La experimentacion se lleva a cabo tomando como punto de partida la norma E1225-87 de la ASTM y se adecua a las caracteristicas del material a probar. Se diseno una probeta de acero inoxidable 316 para medir el flujo termico que atraviesa el recubrimiento. Primero se caracterizo la instalacion experimental a fin de determinar su confiabilidad. Posteriormente se realizo la experimentacion encontrandose una conductividad termica promedio de 12.09{+-}0.72 W/m K en el intervalo de temperatura de 110-180 grados Celsius. Este valor es 12.3% inferior al correspondiente a un metal solido de la misma composicion.

Los elementos para los experimentos con combustible solido homogeneo consisten en ZrO{sub 2} y UO{sub 2} en polvo muy enriquecido, mezclados uniformemente con parafina, prensados y compactados. Con bloques reflectores que presentan la misma razon ZrO{sub 2}/parafina que el combustible, se pueden construir cuerpos con reflectores dotados de caracteristicas de moderacion uniforme. Los propiedades mecanicas del conjunto critico son tales que las configuraciones criticas asumen la forma de paralelepipedos rectangulares simples sin canales para dispositivos de seguridad o barras de control.

Se estudio el comportamiento de dos eutecticos de indio frente a algunos materiales de construccion y a principios de 1960 se construyo el primer circuito de prueba de indio-galio. Como iesultado de estudios ulteriores, se instalaron modelos de circuitos de indio-galio, con una actividad en el irradiador equivalente a unos 100 g de Ra, en el reactor IRT de la Academia de Ciencias de la Republica Socialista Sovietica de Georgia, asi'como un circuito de prueba de indio-galio-estafio in el canal del reactor IRT del Instituto de Energia Atomica de la Academia de Ciencias de la Union Sovietica. Por ultimo, en 1962, se instalo un circuito de trabajo de indio-galio-estano en el reactor IRT de la Academia de Ciencias de la Republica Socialista Sovietica de Latvia para efectuar irradiaciones en escala semiindustrial. La actividad maxima en el irradiador equivale a 30 000 g de Ra. La memoria consta de las siguientes partes: 1.

    equipo, cadaveres de animales sometidos a experimentos biologicos con trazadores, liquidos activos y materiales de reactor irradiados. s Desde 1946 a 1957, inclusive, se sumergieron frente a la costa de California 16.288 toneles de 230 litros de capacidad cada uno que contenian desechos de baja actividad. Los criterios seguidos por los Estados Unidos en las operaciones de evacuacion de desechos en el mar responden a dos objetivos principales: 1) Conseguir que la manipulacion de desechos entre el punto de origen y el de evacuacion se efectue en las mejores condiciones de seguridad; 2) hundir los recipientes a suficiente profundidad. No se ha establecido ningun requisito por lo que se refiere a la integridad del recipiente o del contenido despues de la evacuacion. El autor describe otras tecnicas utilizadas o sugeridas para el confinamiento de desechos radiactivos, como el envasado en latas, la adsorcion a arcilla y la integracion en vidrio. A fin de que los desechos radiactivos resulten inocuos para los peces y demas organismos marinos, es preciso aislarlos del medio o dispersarlos hasta que su grado de concentracion no exceda del valor maximo permisible. Para aislar del medio a los desechos solidos de baja y mediana actividad evacuados, el autor propone que se emplee un recipiente esferico de apropiado diseno mecanico, hermeticamente cerrado y capaz de resistir grandes presiones. Los peces pueden sufrir de cuatro maneras diferentes los efectos de los desechos radiactivos que hay en el medio: 1) por irradiacion directa de las sustancias evacuadas; 2) por ingestion de organismos que contienen radioisotopos concentrados; 3) por irradiacion debida a las particulas o iones radiactivos contenidos en el agua; 4) por contaminacion con materiales del fondo ricos en radioisotopos precipitados. El autor sugiere las investigaciones que sera necesario efectuar antes de permitir la evacuacion en gran escala de desechos radiactivos en el mar. (author) [Russian] Othody s nizkim urovnem

De ella hadeducidoun 'indice de calidad' que varia segun las caracteristicas del instrumente y segun el metodo empleado. Los factores que intervienen en dicho indice de calidad son: la sensibilidad del detector para el angulo solido subtendido por un elemento de resolucion, el numero de elementos de resolucion 'vistos' simultaneamente, el numero de elementos de resolucion en el conjunto del campo que se explora o cuya imagen se obtiene, la concentracion del radioisotopo, el tiempo total necesario para obtener una imagen y la intensidad de la actividad de fondo. En la actual presentacion, la teoria fundamental ha sido perfeccionada teniendo encuentaotros factores:el poder de resolucion en funcion de la 'profundidad focal', la velocidad de la exploracion o el tiempo de exposicion, las posibilidades de un poder de resolucion modificable o automa'ticamente variable, la resolubilidad relativa, losnodulos 'frios' y 'calientes', ladimension del campo y el empleo de radioisotopos y de tipos de detectores especiales.

    desechos en estado semi-solido que han de almacenarse de modo permanente. Se estima que en tales casos las formaciones geologicas profundas pueden constituir un lugar de evacuacion satisfactorio desde el punto de vista de la seguridad y de la economia. En las formaciones de arenisca resulta posible acumular grandes cantidades de desechos con un alto grado de estabilidad del confinamiento. Merced a sus cavidades intersticiales y caracteristicas de intercambio ionico, esas formaciones suelen poseer una capacidad de almacenamiento muy considerable. En principio, el sistema de evacuacion que utiliza las formaciones geologicas profundas ha de consistir en un conjunto de pozos de inyeccion por los que se introducen los desechos, y de pozos de compensacion que sirven para reducir la presion en la boca de los pozos, medir la radiactividad y dirigir el flujo de tal modo que se aproveche al maximo la capacidad de almacenamiento de la formacion. Entre los datos necesarios para proyectar un sistema de este tipo figuran las propiedades de dispersion de la formacion sus caracteristicas de intercambio ionico y las propiedades quimicas y radioquimicas de los desechos. En el Centro tecnologico experimental de la Universidad de California viene funcionando desde hace dos anos un sistema piloto de dos pozos con una capa acuifera.

    paralelamente los efectos termicos para poder evaluar los efectos puramente termicos en el reactor y el posible calentamiento interno de las sustancias empleadas como blanco. En el sistema en el que los cromatos se depositaron sobre MgO, se observo una reduccion considerable a ion cromo. Los efectos neutronicos son mas importantes que los procesos termicos a la temperatura de irradiacion y por mero calentamiento por encima de 600 Degree-Sign C se observaron efectos analogos. El ion cromo no experimento ningun cambio durante la irradiacion. El aumento de la concentracion de cromatos se tradujo en la retencion bien conocida de {sup 51}CrO{sub 4}{sup =}. Los cromatos adsorbidos en Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} conservaron la misma forma oxidada que en el caso del SiO{sub 2}. Los efectos termicos acusaron la misma tendencia. El ion cromo adsorbido en estos oxidos se comporto de manera distinta. En el sistema con Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} se observo una oxidacion considerablemente mayor que en el caso del proceso termico. Al comparar la irradiacion con el calentamiento, los autores hallaron una pequeuea diferencia en el sistema con SiO{sub 2}, si bien observaron un notable empobrecimiento, por difusion, del ion cromo en la superficie. La propiedad comun a todos estos sistemas es la exigua concentracion de los compuestos de cromo. En la mayor parte de los casos, las caracteristicas quimicas de las capas finas parecen diferir del comportamiento normal en grandes volumenes de cromatos, tanto en lo que atane a los procesos termicos como a los de retroceso. Ello podria significar que los procesos que se desarrollan en puntos calientes, al depender de todos los componentes, originarian productos quimicos sensibles a la naturaleza de la sustancia utilizada como blanco. Al parecer, para poder efectuar una descripcion general de los procesos de retroceso en compuestos solidos, es preciso tener debidamente en cuenta el material de la matriz.

En ausencia de viento, una proporcion considerable del agua caliente retornaba a la central al cabo de tres o cuatro horas, circulando por la superficie del deposito. Ello puso de manifiesto que el sistema de admision del agua se habia proyectado incorrectamente, por lo que hubo de modificarse. El autor describe asimismo un estudio del esquema de circulacion de las soluciones de azucar bruto en un tanque Bach de sedimentacion. Despues de haber sido tratada con cal, la solucion caliente penetra en el tanque por una tuberia de alimentacion que desemboca en la parte superior del mismo, en tanto que la solucion clarificada se estrae por tuberias situadas a seis niveles distintos. Los solidos precipitados se extraen por la parte inferior. Se inyecto una solucion conteniendo 5 milicuries de bromo-82 en la tuberia de alimentacion y el paso del indicador se midio cuantitativamente a medida que aparecia en las seis tuberias de salida, utilizando detectores de centelleo blindados. Un estudio de la distribucion de la actividad dentro de cada tuberia, en funcion del tiempo, permitio formarse una idea clara de las caracteristicas de la corriente en el tanque de sedimentacion. Por ultimo, el autor estudia el rendimiento de la operacion de mezcla en un mezclador de tipo espiral.

(author) [Spanish] Se analizan en la memoria varios problemas encontrados al aplicar los datos basicos sobre difusion a sistemas de interes practico para la ingenierfa nuclear. Estos problemas se refieren a experimentos de difusion isotermica, difusion por gradiente termico y efectos de la radiacion sobre los procesos de difusion. La mayor parte de la informacion fidedigna sobre la difusion en solidos proviene de casos donde no existe, en esencia, gradiente alguno de concentracion de las especies que se difunden. Los sistemas que interesan a los ingenieros nucleares, en cambio, presentan casi invariablemente gradientes de concentracion. Asf, pues, para evaluarlos coeficientes adecuados es necesario contar con un conocimiento practico de la relacion existente entre los coeficientes de autodifusiOn y de difusion quimica. Ademas, es preciso conocer los coeficientes de actividad termodinamica como funciones de la composicion. Recientemente se ha demostrado sin lugar a dudas que el uso indiscriminado de una expresion del tipo de la de Arrhenius para describir la manera en que los datos de difusion dependen de la temperatura, puede introducir graves errores en el calculo de los coeficientes de difusion. Se analizan en la memoria las consecuencias de ese hecho, haciendo especial hincapie en los sistemas cubicos centrados en el cuerpo/ del tipo refractario. Los autores han estudiado teorica y experimentalmente el efecto de un gradiente termico sobre la redistribucion de impurezas sustitutivas en un metal. Ese trabajo ha contribuido a un mejor conocimiento de la importancia de este efecto en los

    energia, permite obtener autorradiogramas (ARG) de elevada resolucion. La {sup 3}HTDR es quimicamente estable, marca el acido desoxirribonucleico (ADN) y no experimenta intercambio ulterior. El ADN solo es diluido por nuevo ADN en el momento de producirse las duplicaciones cromosomaticas. Por tanto, la intensidad de la marcacion disminuye a medida que tienen lugar las sucesivas divisiones celulares. Al parecer, el comportamiento de la poblacion marcada es compatible con el modelo Taylor-Woods-Hughes (TWH) de duplicacion cromosomatica. La intuicion sugiere que el ADN adquiere radiotoxicidad cuando se le incorporan elementos radiactivos. Se ha estudiado la toxicidad en relacion con las propiedades del tritio y la influencia de la duplicacion cromosomatica (modelo TWH), y empiricamente en testiculos y linfocitos de mamiferos. Despues de administrar dosis suficientes para poder realizar estudios autorradiograficos en serie, no se han observado radiolesiones ni perturbaciones en la proliferacion celular. Hasta la fecha se han estudiado, tanto en el hombre como en animales, la hematopoyesis normal, leucemias agudas y cronicas, mieloma multiple y determinados tumores solidos. Se ha reunido una serie de datos sobre la fraccion de las celulas marcadas y la velocidad de disminucion de la intensidad de la marcacion. En la memoria se presentan esos datos. Su interpretacion resulta complicada a consecuencia de las restricciones impuestas por la identificacion citologica y de la determinacion de limites morfologicos entre fases sucesivas de la proliferacion celular pasando de la celula originaria a la progenie que no sufre division, asi como de nuestra incapacidad para determinar si una celuia que no este en estado de mitosis o en fase de sintesis de ADN conserva su capacidad para volver a dividirse. En la memoria se examinan los aspectos teorico y practico de estos problemas. Se ha establecido provisionalmente que la velocidad de crecimiento correspondiente a algunos conjuntos

    autores explican como han adaptado la clave AX-I para calculos neutronico-hidro-dinamicos al caso de un gas que se ajusta a la ecuacion de Van der Waals. Otra modificacion importante introducida en la ecuacion de estado utilizada en la clave, consiste en emplear una ecuacion del tipo de Mie-Gruneisen, derivada de la teoria del estado solido. Esta modificacion permite evaluar de manera mas satisfactoria del termino de presion para el caso de cuerpos de composicion variable. Dado que en un conjunto de potencia cero las placas de uranio fuertemente enriquecido en el isotopo-235, se calentaran con mas rapidez que las de uranio empobrecido, la posibilidad de que se produzca un efecto Doppler positivo neto es mucho mayor en un conjunto experimental que en el reactor de potencia reproductor equivalente. Se ha estudiado este peligro en el caso de diferentes conjuntos posibles. Los calculos indican que en un conjunto de potencia cero el coeficiente Doppler solo alcanza un valor peligroso en los sistemas que poseen un espectro de energias neutronicas muy blando, caracteristico de los grandes reactores de potencia reproductores, alimentados con oxido de uranio.

En la actualidad, sin embargo, existe un interes cada vez mayor por comprender esas propiedades en funcion de la presencia y la fndole de defectos puntiformes y lineales en los cristales. La presente memoria pasa revista a algunos estudios de difusion realizados recientemente en los Chalk River Nuclear Laboratories; ademas de aportar datos de interes para la tecnologfa nuclear, esos estudios contribuyen a un mejor conocimiento de la fndole de los defectos reticulares que aparecen en los materiales. Los aspectos analizados son: i) autodifusion en la fase de alta temperatura del circonio puro; ii) difusion del soluto en plomo; iii) interdifusion de aluminio y circonio. Se pasa breve revista a los resultados algo sorprendentes y todavfa no del todo comprendidos, descritos en i). Se presentan puebas que sugieren que la difusion se produce, ya sea en virtud de una densa red de dislocacion originada por una transformacion de la fase martensftica, ya por un exceso de huecos introducidos en el cristal por obra de las impurezas. En ii) se analiza la difusion extraordinariamente rapida de solutos de metales nobles en monocristales de plomo de alta pureza, en funcion del estado de disolucion de los atomos del soluto.

    estable de cada cadena es conocido, esta distribucion de las particulas beta refleja fielmente la distribucion primaria de las cargas nucleares. En las mediciones realizadas hasta ahora, solo se han registrado las particulas beta recogidas en el semiangulo solido formado por la placa portadora de la emulsion, pero un simple calculo estadistico permite determinar la distribucion 4{pi} apetecida. En la memoria se indican las distribuciones de particulas beta obtenidas por este metodo, a energias cineticas fijas, proximas a la energia cinetica media de cada fragmento, para las masas 132, 134, 136 y 137. En lo que respecta a las masas 132 y 134, la capa neutronica N = 82 determina las cargas primarias mas probables en las proximidades de 50 y 52, respectivamente. Para M= 136 y 137, la carga primaria es de 53 y 53,2.

    satisfaisante pour quelques applications. Cette constatation est surprenante du fait que le deuterium est avant tout un diffuseur coherent, ce que n'est pas l'hydrogene, mais elle corrobore de recentes etudes de Koppel qui montrent que les termes de diffusion dus aux interferences intramoleculaires et intermoleculaires dans D{sub 2}O tendent a s'annuler. Les auteurs presentent egalement des spectres de neutrons, variables selon l'angle, mesures dans BeO empoisonne avec de l'acier inoxydable au bore. D'une maniere generale, l'accord entre les mesures et les calculs a ete considerablement ameliore. Le noyau de diffusion theorique est fonde sur un spectre de frequences de Debye avec une frequence de coupure ajustee de maniere a satisfaire les mesures de chaleur specifique pour BeO. Dans les mesures, les auteurs ont observe un important piegeage de Bragg de neutrons de faible energie. (author) [Spanish] En los laboratorios de la General Atomic se estan midiendo espectros de neutrones termicos en moderadores de interes para la tecnologia nuclear. La finalidad de estas mediciones es verificar la validez de los modelos de dispersion propuestos para esos moderadores. En la actualidad, los nucleos de dispersion se determinan midiendo directamente las secciones eficaces de dispersion diferenciales dobles, o estudiando los movimientos de vibracion y de rotacion de las moleculas en los liquidos, o el espectro de vibraciones reticulares en los solidos. La medicion directa tropieza con algunas dificultades experimentales, tales como obtener la intensidad y el poder de resolucion deseados e introducir las correcciones adecuadas para tener en cuenta la dispersion multiple en la muestra. Para la tecnologia de los reactores, el segundo procedimiento de determinacion del ndcleo de dispersion suele dar resultados mas satisfactorios. Las mediciones integrales efectuadas, combinadas con el calculo comparado de los espectros neutronicos, permiten formular algunas observaciones sobre el estado actual

    important du lingot une heure apres la fin de la coulee. (author) [Spanish] La memoria expone algunas aplicaciones tipicas de los radioelementos de periodo corto en diversos tipos de estudios metalograficos. Se ha desarrollado una tecnica sencilla de analisis por activacion que permite determinar el lantano en los aceros a los que se ha anadido una pequena cantidad de mischmetall durante la fusion. Se ha estudiado el comportamiento de pequenas cantidades de arsenico presentes en el hierro durante la oxidacion de este metal y se ha comprobado por autorradiograffa que el arsenico se concentra notablemente en la interfaz metal-oxido. Mediante una tecnica que consiste en activar las muestras oxidadas en un reactor nuclear y disolver capas sucesivas de algunas mieras de espesor, el fenomeno se ha podido estudiar cuantitativamente. Asi se ha comprobado que el arsenico se concentra en las proximidades de la superficie de los granos metalicos, alcanzando hasta 30 o 40 veces la concentracion media inicial correspondiente a la aleacion. Se ha realizado un estudio del crecimiento de los cristales metalicos por autorradiograffa aprovechando el hecho que el solido es mas pobre en elementos aleados que el liquido a partir del cual los cristales se forman. Se han estudiado aleaciones aluminio-cobre enfriadas lentamente y templadas durante la solidificacion, lo cual permitio poner en evidencia la configuracion de los cristales metalicos en diversas etapas de su crecimiento, y establecer la relacion que existe entre el progreso de la solidificacion y las variaciones de temperatura de la aleacion, medidas mediante un termopar. Finalmente, se han estudiado las corrientes de conveccion en lingotes de forja de grandes dimensiones. La finalidad de este trabajo era confirmar que en los lingotes de forja se producen fuertes corrientes de conveccion. Los ensayos se realizaron introduciendo una pequena cantidad de oro-198 radiactivo en lingotes de 4t y en lingotes de 30 a 60 t en diversos momentos

    composes de rubidium examines. (author) [Spanish] En la presente memoria se estudia la distribucion quimica del radiobromo entre los estados de oxidacion superior (BrO{sup -}{sub 3}) e inferiores (Br{sup -}, Br{sub 2}, BrO{sup -}) producidos por la reaccion nuclear Rb{sup 85}(n, {alpha}) Br{sup 82} en cierto numero de solidos inorganicos que contienen rubidio. Los autores irradiaron con neutrones de 14 MeV procedentes de un generador neutronico (T+d) muestras secas de Rb{sub 2}SO{sub 4}, Rb{sub 2}S{sub 2}O{sub 8}, RbMnO{sub 4}, RbNO{sub 3}, Rb{sub 2}CO{sub 3} y RblO{sub 3}. En el caso del Rb{sub 2}SO{sub 4} irradiado a temperatura ambiente o a -195 Degree-Sign C, aproximadamente el 8% de la actividad total del {sup 82}Br aparece en la fraccion bromato y el resto en la fraccion bromuro. La irradiacion del RbMnO{sub 4} y del RbNO{sub 4} a temperatura ambiente produjo alrededor del 1% de actividad en el estado de oxidacion superior del bromo, mientras que en el caso del Rb{sub 2}S{sub 2}O{sub 8}, Rb{sub 2}CO{sub 3} y RbIO{sub 3}, la actividad solo pudo medirse en la fase bromuro. Observaron un ligero aumento de la actividad del bromato cuando el Rb{sub 2}SO{sub 4} irradiado con neutrones se calento a 250 Degree-Sign C. A temperaturas mas elevadas (hasta 500 Degree-Sign C), la actividad paso al estado de oxidacion inferior. El calentamiento del RbMnO{sub 4} y del RbNO{sub 3} irradiados no provoco ninguna oxidacion del radiobromo. Si bien la irradiacion previa del RbNO{sub 4} con dosis gamma de 22 Mrad no afecto la distribucion de los atomos de bromo de retroceso, el analisis del Rb{sub 2}SO{sub 4} previamente expuesto a los rayos gamma (55 Mrad) puso de manifiesto una actividad de bromato superior a la de las muestras que antes de la irradiacion neutronica solo se habian secado a 150 Degree-Sign C. En conclusion, los autores subrayan la importancia de la constitucion quimica del compuesto utilizado, como blanco y de los medios no isotopicos en lo que atane a la distribucion de

Para las mediciones en la planta conviene emplear la pesada siempre que sea posible; por ejemplo, la cantidad de plutonio que entra en la nueva planta de separacion de Windscale se calcula a base del peso de las barras de uranio. Los autores exponen los metodos de medicion de volumenes: a) 'pneumercator', y b) empleo de cesio radiactivo como indicador, y evaluan la exactitud y precision de cada uno de esos metodos. El muestreo de soluciones en un proceso intermitente se efectua con tubos evacuados despues de homogeneizar la solucion. Para las corrientes 'continuas' , que requieren mucha exactitud, se ha ideado un dispositivo de muestreo continuo que se emplea a la entrada de la nueva planta de separacion. En Windscale, el metodo normal de muestreo consiste en taladrar lingotes metalicos; para otros solidos se sigue la practica de homogeneizar todo lo posible el material antes de tomar la muestra (para el oxido de plutonio, por ejemplo, se emplea una mezcladora conica en Y

    'atome d'azote. (author) [Spanish] El grupo nitrosilo puede actuar en las dos formas NO{sup -} y NO{sup +} y esta propiedad, junto con su estructura, le confiere particular importancia como grupo ligante. Los autores han estudiado la estructura electronica del K{sub 3}Mn(CN){sub 6} y del K{sub 3}Mn(CN){sub 5}NO, la valencia del metal y el tipo de enlace, empleando metodos de intercambio radioisotopico y otras tecnicas fisicoquimicas. Encuentran que la introduccion del grupo nitrosilo en el ion hexacianuro aumenta notablemente la estabilidad del complejo, tanto en estado solido como en solucion. Esta observacion queda corroborada por el estudio de la cinetica de intercambio de los sistemas: (I) K{sub 3}Mn(CN){sub 6} + K{sup 14}CN (II) K{sub 3}Mn(CN){sub 5}NO + K{sup 14}CN En ambos casos, las reacciones de intercambio son de primer orden, pero sus velocidades y sus energias de activacion respectivas son muy distintas. El anion [Mn(CN){sub 5} NO]{sub 3} - es fotosensible, de modo que la reaccion de intercambio tiene caracter fotoquimieo. La razon entre las constantes de velocidad del intercambio en la oscuridad y baj o una iluminacion tipo es 1:100. La primera reaccion de intercambio (I) transcurre segun un mecanismo de asociacion, mientras que la segunda (II) obedece a un mecanismo compuesto de asociacion-disociacion. En el estado de equilibrio isotopico, el analisis de la distribucion de la actividad entre los grupos cianuro que sufren el intercambio revela la identidad de por lo menos cuatro de los grupos cianuro. Por diferentes metodos se pudo demostrar que el complejo nitrosilado posee una estabilidad mucho mayor que el hexacianuro. Todo lo precedente indica la presencia de una estructura NO{sup -} en el complejo. Las investigaciones anteriores habian revelado que el grupo nitrosilo esta coordinado como NO{sup +}. Ello sugiere la existencia de ima estructura resonante para el complejo, admitiendo la resonancia de un par electronico entre la capa T{sub 2g} del atomo

Los indicadores de periodo corto han sido esenciales en muchos de estos estudios para reducir a un minimo la contaminacion del producto final. En la mayoria de los casos, la marcacion es fisica, pudiendo elegirse el indicador de forma que su periodo de semidesintegracion y las caracteristicas de las radiaciones que emiten sean adecuados. Si el nuclido radiactivo que se emplea tiene una elevada seccion eficaz de activacion neutronica, como es el caso de los nuclidos mencionados, el flujo neutronico de un reactor de investigacion basta para obtener indicadores de algunos curies de actividad, siempre que no sea imprescindible una actividad especifica elevada.

    temperature de la reactivite. (author) [Spanish] Desde diciembre de 1960, el reactor de impulsos de neutrones rapidos IBR viene funcionando a su potencia nominal en el Instituto Central de Investigaciones Nucleares. Dicho reactor se utiliza como fuente pulsante de neutrones para realizar experimentos de fisica por el metodo del tiempo de vuelo. Se llevan a cabo determinacione s de las secciones eficaces totales, de las secciones eficaces de captura de neutrones intermedios, estudios de las interacciones de los neutrones lentos con los solidos y los liquidos y mediciones de los espectros neutronicos en distintos medios. Los autores describen las principales caracteristicas constructivas del reactor y los resultados de los estudios realizados mediante el mismo. Este reactor trabaja con arreglo a un regimen de impulsos periodicos. Los impulsos de potencia se originan cuando la parte movil del cuerpo, fijada a un disco giratorio, atraviesa la parte estacionaria con una velocidad del orden de los 230 m/s. Gracias a la presencia de una zona movible auxiliar, es posible variar la frecuencia de los impulsos de potencia entre 2,3 y 88 impulsos por segundo. La potencia media del reactor es de 1 kW y la duracion media de los impulsos, de 36 {mu}s. El reactor esta provisto de un sistema de mando y de seguridad que vela por el mantenimiento automatico de la potencia del reactor en su valor medio, asi como por su rapida detencion en caso de perturbacion del funcionamiento. Tambien posee el reactor conductores neutronicos de vacio, que se utilizan en los experimentos de tiempo de vuelo. El conducto principal tiene 1000 m de longitud. En el proceso de puesta en marcha y durante las investigaciones fisicas realizadas con el reactor, se estudio el efecto del desplazamiento de los organos de regulacion y de las partes moviles del cuerpo sobre la reactividad, se determino la duracion de los impulsos a distintos regimenes de trabajo del reactor y se estudiaron las fluctuaciones de la amplitud de

    medir este valor en un reactor de flujo reducido, pero se estan estudiando algunos que pueden servir a ese fin. Los autores resefian tres de las tecnicas que ofrecen mejores perspectivas. Los estudios realizados con el proposito de construit un espectrometro pequeflo para neutrones rapidos con buenas caracteristicas de estabilidad, poder de resolucion y sensibilidad, destinado a la medicion de espectros neutronicos dentro del reactor, en el intervalo energetico de las decenas o centenares de kilovoltios, se han concentrado en el empleo del analisis de la forma de los impulsos (con el fin de rechazar los sucesos iniciados por los rayos gamma en los contadores proporcionales de retroceso de hidtogeno) y el empleo de la colimacion en los detectores tipo sandwich, a base de {sup 6}LiF en un material solido, a fin de aumentar el poder de resolucion. Se ha construido cierto ndmero de instrumentes de este tipo y se esta estudiando la forma en que se comportan frente a los neutrones monocineticos y los neutrones de un reactor. Recurriendo a la tecnica de rechazo de los rayos gamma, se ha podido reducir varios cientos de veces la sensibilidad del contador de retroceso frente a dichos rayos y de esta manera, el limite inferior de aplicacion del instrumente se ha extendido por lo menos hasta los 30 keV. En cuanto a los instrumentes de semiconductors a base de {sup 6}Li, se han observado poderes de resolucion de hasta 70 keV de amplitud total en correspondencia con la mitad del maximo (1,5%) para la suma de los impulsos, en la irradiaeion con neutrones termicos.

    los alimentos por irradiacion. La copiosa informacion obtenida por los autores en su laboratorio ha puesto de manifiesto: a) que el valor D{sup 10} de una determinada cepa depende de la temperatura, del medio y de la cantidad de inoculo de esporas, y b) que segun el metodo de calculo empleado y como consecuencia de variaciones desconocidas entre un experimento y otro, pueden obtenerse valores D fundamentalmente distintos. Esta informacion justifica una reevaluacion del concepto de 12 X D. Puede demostrarse que la temperatura empleada durante la irradiacion influye indirectamente, de distintas formas, sobre los radicales: a) su formacion;, b) reactividad quimica; c) duracion del recocido y d) difusion, particularmente durante la transicion de lfquido a solido del medio en torno a los 0 Degree-Sign C. La combinacion de estos efectos, que son funcion de la temperatura, explica por que las esporas son mas sensibles cuando se las irradia a 0 Degree-Sign C que cuando se emplean temperaturas mas altas o mas bajas. Ademas de sus efectos sobre los radicales, la temperatura afecta tambien, directamente, a los blancos esenciales (ADN). En esto interviene el estado vibracional asf como el grado de hidratacion de las moleculas de ADN. La hidratacion aparente del.ADN esta relacionada con el intervalo de accion de los efectos indirectos, que para el C. botulinum 33A puede calcularse que anade 30 A al radio del ADN (10, 5A), es decir, casi se, triplica el efecto de la radiacion. Esta variacion del volumen radiosensible se refleja en-un cambio correspondiente del valor D{sub 37}, que pasa de 1,6 x 10{sup 5} rad para las esporas secas a 6,6 x 10{sup 4} rad para las esporas humedas. El medio de suspension puede competir por los radicales (por ejemplo: la mayoria de los alimentos y de los medios microbiologicos son depuradores de radicales), o facilitar la formacion de radicales per judiciales (por ejemplo: el fosfato amortiguador forma acido fosffnico y el oxfgeno forma radicales

    de Li{sub 2}Co{sub 3}, Li{sup 6}F, Li{sup 6}OH, Li{sup 6}BO{sub 2} * 8H{sub 2}. Irradiaron etileno gaseoso (P = 5 a 10 atm) y sus mezclas con amoniaco, helio e inhibidores. La irradiacion se efectuo en un reactor del tipo 1RT-1000, con un flujo de 10{sup 11} a 10{sup 12} neutrones termicos/cm{sup 2} * s. Los compuestos tritiados y los productos de las reacciones inducidas por radiaciones se determinaron por cromatografia de gases con ayuda de dos detectores montados en serie: un catarometro y un contador Geiger de corriente gaseosa. Los autores demuestran que el espectro de los productos marcados y sin marcar en el etileno irradiado presenta considerables diferencias. Los principales productos no marcados son el C{sub 2}H{sub 2}, C{sub 2}H{sub 6}, C{sub 4}H{sub 10} e hidrocarburos > C{sub 4}; el rendimiento de H{sub 2} es pequeno. Los principales productos marcados son el HT, C{sub 2}H{sub 3}T y C{sub 4}H{sub 9}T, el rendimiento de C{sub 2}H{sub 5}T y en especial de C{sub 2}HT es insignificante. Los rendimientos de los compuestos marcados dependen de la introduccion de aditivos (amoniaco, helio, yodo) en el etileno del tipo del compuesto que contiene litio y de la estructura del blanco. La disminucion de la temperatura desde 50 Degree-Sign C to -78 Degree-Sign C influye escasamente en la distribucion de los productos marcados; sin embargo, al pasar al etileno solido, a -196 Degree-Sign C, se observa un efecto de fases: disminuye el rendimiento de HT y de C{sub 4}H{sub 9}T y aumenta la actividad del compuesto original C{sub H3}T. Los autores demuestran que en la radiolisis del C{sub 2}H{sub 4} y de sus mezclas con amoniaco, la relacion C{sub 2}H{sub 6}/C{sub 4}H{sub 10} es igual a 1,0 {+-} 0,3, lo que no concuerda con el esquema clasico relativo a las reacciones de dismutacion y recombinacion termica de los radicales etileno (C{sub 2}H{sub 6}/C{sub 4}H{sub 10} = 0,2 {+-} 0,1). Basandose en los datos relativos a la influencia ejercida al anadir helio y al aumentar la

    del crecimiento. Los clones 41(Quimba y 8-4 en las variables: diámetro transversal, diametro longitudinal, peso fresco y peso seco, exhibieron una curva de tipo sigmoidal. Asi mismo, se determino que los frutos de feijoa tienen muy bajos contenidos de almidon. Ademas, utilizando la tecnica de cromatografia liquida de alto desempeño (HPLC, se encontro que los azucares mas abundantes eran fructosa, sacarosa y glucosa. Otras variables medidas fueron los solidos solubles totales (SST, el pH y la acidez total titulable, que se incrementaron gradualmente durante el desarrollo del fruto.
