    In the light of the current major paradigms and issues of economies and societies worldwide, which are globalisation and competitiveness in national and international markets, the author raises the question of whether the concept of sustainable development has any chance at all to gain a foothold in this political environment. (orig./CB) [German] Nicht das Leitbild der nachhaltigen Entwicklung praegt die weltweite Tagesordnung, sondern auf internationaler Ebene die Auseinandersetzung um Globalisierung, auf nationaler Ebene die Debatte um Standort- und Wettbewerbsvorteile. Fuenf Jahre nach Rio lautet die Frage: Ist nachhaltige Entwicklung unter den Bedingungen der Globalisierung moeglich? (orig.)

  5. Sustained energy supply under globalisation and liberalisation conditions; Nachhaltige Energieversorgung unter den Bedingungen der Globalisierung und Liberalisierung

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Hempelmann, Rolf [Enquete-Kommission des Deutschen Bundestags, Berlin (Germany)

    2002-06-06

    The major challenge at the threshold of this century is to structure the energy supply in the sense of sustained development. The Committee of Enquiry of the Federal German Parliament 'Sustained energy supply under globalisation and liberalisation conditions' is developing medium to long-term concepts in this respect. Analysis of the boundary conditions of future energy policy shows that the consequences of future enrichment of climatic gases in the atmosphere and no longer the availability and productiveness of the energy deposits could become the limiting factor. Following the analysis of the technological and non-technological future potentials for sustained energy supply the Committee of Enquiry is currently working on the formulation of strategies for the energy industry transformation process. (orig.) [German] An der Schwelle dieses Jahrhunderts stellt sich die grosse Herausforderung, die Energieversorgung im Sinne einer nachhaltigen Entwicklung zu strukturieren. Die Enquete-Kommission des Deutschen Bundestags 'Nachhaltige Energieversorgung unter den Bedingungen der Globalisierung und Liberalisierung' entwickelt hierzu mittel- bis laengerfristige Konzepte. Die Analyse der Rahmenbedingungen kuenftiger Energiepolitik zeigt, dass die Folgen einer weiteren Anreicherung von Klimagasen in der Atmosphaere und nicht mehr die Verfuegbarkeit und Ergiebigkeit der Energielagerstaetten zum limitierenden Faktor werden koennten. Nach der Analyse der technologischen und nicht-technologischen Zukunftspotentiale fuer eine nachhaltige Energieversorgung arbeitet die Enquete-Kommission derzeit an der Formulierung von Strategien fuer den energiewirtschaftlichen Transformationsprozess.

  6. New Technologies and Sustainable Development of Industry; Neue Technologien und nachhaltige Entwicklung der Industrie

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Muggli, Christoph; Baumgartner, Walter; Werner, Frank [Basics AG, Beckenhofstrasse 16, CH-8035 Zurich (Switzerland)

    1996-08-01

    The present technology assessment study examines the effects of three technology scenarios on future energy consumption and the energy-related emissions by industrial manufacturing in Switzerland. The three paths of development (Trend, High-Tech, Alternative) can be represented as follows: After a reduction until 2015, the Trend development entails a slight increase in consumption of energy. Until then consumption is some 10 percent lower in both the High-Tech and the Alternative Scenarios. Consumption of electricity increases in all scenarios, the proportion is highest in 20 year's time under the High-Tech scenario. SO{sub 2} and CO{sub 2} emissions decrease in all scenarios until 2000 and then level out at a low level. The emissions are lowest in the High-Tech scenario. In contrast the NO{sub x} and the VOC emissions diminish until 2000 and then rise again continuously. At this juncture important bases are still not yet available for a definitive evaluation with respect to the sustainable development. Sustainability objectives are currently being compiled for Switzerland in the wake of the Berlin Climate Conference and the Rio Conference. In the political lobbies the Green factions are making demands, such as those currently under discussion internationally (e.g. CO{sub 2} reductions on a scale of some 80 percent by 2050), whereas conservative and industrial circle representatives support the objective of sustainable development but reject a quantification of objectives. The official objectives of the Swiss Energy 2000 programme can be achieved with all scenarios. With the High-Tech and Alternative scenarios, concepts of a reduction in CO{sub 2} by 20 percent by 2015 (as currently under discussion in Switzerland), are realistic. However, further energy-relevant efficiency potentials in industrial production can be activated by energy-policy motivated measures. More extensive objectives, such as e.g. a CO{sub 2} reduction of 50 percent, are hardly attainable, even in the long-term, without sufficiency considerations in industrial production. The degree of acceptance of measures diminishes on the conservative and business sides with increasing interventionism whereas the Green lobby would put up with direct guidance measures and, above all, negative effects on the Swiss labour market.

    2000-12-01

    The issue of projecting policies ensuring appropriate energy supply in the future has become more important in Germany after conclusion of the agreement on a long-term nuclear power phase-out. A recent comparative analysis of a selection of scientific studies forecasting the implications of a nuclear power phase-out has shown that there is demand for more studies examining the issue in greater detail, and on the basis of an enlarged scope of research topics. Hence the present study, intended as a preliminary analysis, will investigate the potential, conditions of successful application, conceivable support schemes, and effects of those policy options that in any case, apart from the nuclear power phase-out scenario, are of essential importance in the context of building the proper conditions for sustainable development of Germany's energy sector. The options and strategies examined are: stepping up energy efficiency programmes and incentives, enhancing exploitation of the considerable potential of renewable energy sources, considering problems and benefits of enhanced use of fossil energy sources, primarily natural gas. (orig./CB) [German] Die Frage der zukuenftigen Ausgestaltung der Energieversorgung hat nach der Vereinbarung ueber den langfristigen Kernenergie-Ausstieg einen hoeheren Stellenwert erhalten. Nach Vorliegen einer vergleichenden Analyse ausgewaehlter wissenschaftlicher Studien zu den Auswirkungen eines Ausstiegs aus der Nutzung der Kernenergie in Deutschland wurde deutlich, dass vertiefende Untersuchungen noetig sind, und dass das Thema umfassender formuliert werden muss. Die vorliegende Analyse in der Form einer Vorstudie untersucht daher die Potenziale, Einsatzbedingungen, Foerdermoeglichleiten und Auswirkungen derjenigen strategischen Optionen, die auf jeden Fall, abgesehen von den Auswirkungen eines Ausstiegs aus der Kernenergie, von zentraler Bedeutung fuer eine langfristig nachhaltige Entwicklung im Energiesektor Deutschlands sein werden

  16. Cyber-Physical Systems - Wissenschaftliche Herausforderungen Bei Der Entwicklung

    Science.gov (United States)

    Broy, Manfred

    Cyber-Physical Systems adressieren die enge Verbindung eingebetteter Systeme zur Überwachung und Steuerung physikalischer Vorgänge mittels Sensoren und Aktuatoren über Kommunikationseinrichtungen mit den globalen digitalen Netzen (dem Cyberspace"). Dieser Typus von Systemen ermöglicht über Wirkketten eine Verbindung zwischen Vorgängen der physischen Realität und den heute verfügbaren digitalen Netzinfrastrukturen. Dies erlaubt vielfältige Applikationen mit hohem wirtschaftlichen Potential, und mit starker Innovationskraft. Die vollständige Ausschöpfung des Potentials erfordert aber gezielte wissenschaftliche Anstrengungen bei der Entwicklung solcher Systeme im Hinblick auf Methodik, Technologie, Kostenbeherrschung und funktionale Angemessenheit.

    Full Text Available Die Nachvollziehbarkeit und Reproduzierbarkeit wissenschaftlicher Erkenntnisse basiert zunehmend auf digitalen Daten. Deren Publikation, Verfügbarkeit und Nachnutzung muss im Rahmen guter wissenschaftlicher Praxis gewährleistet werden. Das Projekt RADAR geht diese Herausforderung durch die Etablierung einer generischen Infrastruktur für die Archivierung und Publikation von Forschungsdaten an. Dafür vereinen fünf Projektpartner aus den Informations- und Naturwissenschaften (FIZ Karlsruhe, TIB in Hannover, KIT/SCC, LMU München und IPB Halle ihre Kompetenzen. Durch enge Kooperation mit Wissenschaftler/innen, Datenzentren, Fachgesellschaften und Verlagen wird eine bedarfsgerechte Entwicklung der Infrastruktur sichergestellt. RADAR richtet sich an zwei Zielgruppen: Projekte (d. h. Forscher/innen und Institutionen. Es verfolgt dabei einen zweistufigen Ansatz: ein disziplinübergreifendes Einstiegsangebot zur formatunabhängigen Datenarchivierung mit minimalem Metadatensatz und ein erweitertes Angebot mit integrierter Datenpublikation. Der thematische Schwerpunkt  liegt bei den wissenschaftlichen Disziplinen  im „long tail of science“, in denen Forschungsdateninfrastrukturen meist noch fehlen. RADAR erlaubt eine temporäre oder – im Falle einer Datenpublikation – eine zeitlich unbegrenzte Datenarchivierung. Das angestrebte Geschäftsmodell zielt auf einen sich selbst tragenden Betrieb mit einer Kombination aus Einmalzahlungen und institutionellen Angeboten ab. RADAR ist als Baustein der internationalen Informationsinfrastruktur geplant, der sich über Schnittstellen auch in weitere Datenmanagement-Dienste Dritter integrieren lässt. The transparency and reproducibility of scientific results are increasingly based on digital data. In compliance with good scientific practice data need to be published, accessible, and re-usable. The RADAR project aims to establish a generic infrastructure, which will provide archiving and publication

    The main goals of the project carried out at Bielefeld University on ''The fight against desertification and the remediation of the salt deserts near the Aral Sea'' were as follows: a) to test methods for counteracting desertification by phytomelioration of saline soils; b) to develop plausible nature conservation strategies for the region and preserve biodiversity; and c) to manage resources at the local and regional level. Ad a) The planting was done in November 2002 and March 2004 on an area of 248.3 ha. Three species were tested: Haloxylon aphyllum, Halocnemum strobilaceum and Tamarix hispida. Various planting methods were used. Ad b) A model for preserving biodiversity in the region was developed using the nature conservation area Barsa Kelmes as an example. The flora and vegetation of the core area (the former island Barsa Kelmes) were inventoried, and measures were taken to develop the above-named nature conservation area. Ad c) The villages Bogen and Karateren were used as model objects for cooperation within the region. These villages belong to the Aralsk region (Raion). They are the administrative centres of their respective sub-districts (Aulsoviet), Karateren and Bogen. An intensive cooperation has evolved with the relevant NGOs. In the village Bogen a bureau for the NGO and an information centre for nature resource conservation were established.

    In effect the present study makes concrete proposals for the installation of a nuclear power plant capacity of 91.8 GW as determined by the CDU/CSU and FDP in the inquiry commission on ''Sustainable development''. Because of the infrastructural requirements and the large number of plants that would have to be planned in Germany alone these siting proposals must be regarded as an outline for the implementation of a nuclear climate protection strategy. Without extensive assessment work a short study such as this cannot of course replace the detailed planning that would be required for authorisation procedures. The primary benefit of the study is that it makes clear the true consequences of a nuclear climate protection policy that is now being discussed as a hypothetical possibility. [German] Die vorliegende Studie macht im Ergebnis entsprechend der Aufgabenstellung konkrete Vorschlaege fuer die Bereitstellung der im von CDU/CSU und FDP in der Enquete-Kommission ''Nachhaltige Entwicklung'' definierten Szenario ''Fossilnuklearer Energiemix'' ermittelten nuklearen Kraftwerksleistung von 91,8 GW Diese Standortvorschlaege muessen angesichts der infrastrukturellen Anforderungen und der grossen Zahl von zu planenden Anlagen allein innerhalb der Grenzen der Bundesrepublik Deutschland als Anhaltspunkte fuer die Umsetzung einer nuklearen Klimaschutzstrategie herangezogen werden. Dabei kann eine Kurzstudie selbstverstaendlich ohne umfaengliche Pruefung keine detaillierten Planungen ersetzen, welche im Rahmen entsprechender Genehmigungsverfahren erforderlich sind. Der Nutzen der Studie besteht in erster Linie darin, deutlich vor Augen zu fuehren, welche realen Konsequenzen eine zur Zeit noch hypothetisch gefuehrte Diskussion ueber den Einsatz der Kernkraft zum Klimaschutz hat.

    Full Text Available Vorliegender Artikel versteht sich als allererste Anregung zur Entwicklung eines deutschsprachigen Masterstudiengangs, der zur Erziehung oder Beratung in bilingualen Kitas qualifiziert. Er entstand vor dem Hintergrund eines Projekts, das sich auf die Ausarbeitung eines Bachelor- Curriculums für bilinguale frühkindliche Bildung konzentriert, um Erzieherinnen und Erzieher für deutsch-türkische Kitas auszubilden. Zentrales Ziel dieses Projektes ist es, die bilinguale Bildung von Kindern türkischer Herkunft in Deutschland zu fördern. Die im Rahmen dieses Modellprojekts diskutierten Frage- und Problemstellungen haben zu folgenden Überlegungen angeregt: Wäre es nicht sinnvoll über das projektierte Vorhaben eines Bachelor-Studiengangs zur frühkindlichen Bildung hinaus auch einen übernationalen Masterstudiengang zu entwickeln und dann dieses Studienprogramm auch für türkische Kinder in bilingualen Kitas in der Türkei fruchtbar zu machen? Dieser Masterstudiengang würde nicht nur den Markt in Deutschland bedienen. Auch in der Türkei wächst die Nachfrage nach bilingualer Bildung stetig und wird seit geraumer Zeit der monolingualen vorgezogen. Zahlreiche Kindergärten und private Vorschulen konkurrieren stark durch ihr bilinguales Angebot verschiedener Sprachkombinationen. Der angedachte Masterstudiengang würde vor allem auch auf Zuspruch bei den Absolventen der Germanistik und Deutschdidaktik sowie der Absolventen der Vorschulpädagogik stoßen, und diesen neue berufliche Wege eröffnen.

  14. Development of genomic instability after irradiation; Entwicklung einer genomischen Instabilitaet nach Bestrahlung

    It has been shown for various endpoints, both in vitro and in vivo, that genomic instability can be induced by low as well as by high LET radiation. Genomic instability in this case is not limited to a specific chromosome or gene. It can be passed on over many cell generations and in mammals can even be inherited to the next generation. It is capable of being induced in gametes. A dose dependence of the development of genomic instability has been found to exist in the range from 0.5 to 2.0 Gy. However, there are no data available in the low dose range. The mechanisms by which genomic instability is induced are still not understood at present. Various possibilities have been suggested. An understanding of these mechanisms will contribute to developing a deepened knowledge of processes such as stochastic radiation effects with multi-step mutation processes, and in particular carcinogenesis. It will facilitate the evaluation of radiation risks in the low-dose range. [German] Die Induktion einer genomischen Instabilitaet durch niedrige ebenso wie Hoch-LET-Strahlung ist fuer verschiedene Endpunkte gezeigt worden. Dieses ist sowohl in vitro als auch in vivo beobachtet worden. Die genomische Instabilitaet ist nicht auf ein spezifisches Chromosom oder Gen begrenzt. Sie kann ueber viele Zellgenerationen weitergegeben und auf die naechste Generation bei Saeugetieren vererbt werden. Eine Induktion in Keimzellen ist moeglich. Eine Dosisabhaengigkeit der Entwicklung genomischer Instabilitaet ist fuer den Dosisbereich von 0,5-2,0 Gy beobachtet worden. Daten im niedrigen Dosisbereich fehlen. Die Mechanismen der Induktion der genomischen Instabilitaet werden bisher nicht verstanden. Eine Anzahl verschiedener Moeglichkeiten ist vorgeschlagen worden. Die genomische Instabilitaet und das Verstaendnis der Mechanismen wird helfen, ein besseres Wissen ueber die Prozesse, wie stochastische Strahleneffekte mit Mehrschrittmutationsprozessen, besonders die Karzinogenese, zu entwickeln

    Schulz, Detlef

    Nur mit einer zuverlässigen und wirtschaftlichen elektrischen Energieversorgung ist eine nachhaltige gesellschaftliche Entwicklung von Industrienationen möglich. Gleichzeitig muss diese selbst so nachhaltig, d. h. umweltverträglich gestaltet werden, dass auch zukünftige Generationen nicht in ihrer Entfaltung behindert werden. Eine versorgungssichere, wirtschaftliche und umweltverträgliche Energiebereitstellung ergibt sich nicht zwingend allein aus einer technisch evolutionären Entwicklung und ist auch bis heute nicht ausschließlich nur mit einer der bekannten Wandlungstechnologien nachweislich realisierbar.

    2009-01-01

    Statistiken aus der Post-Accord Elections (PAE Datensammlung, die in diesem Artikel präsentiert werden, haben gleichwohl ergeben, dass Frieden, Power-Sharing und Demokratie eng miteinander verflochten sind; Friedensabkommen sehen heute in den meisten Fällen sowohl Power-Sharing als auch Wahlen vor. Im Gegensatz zu früheren Forschungen, die von der Annahme ausgingen, das Power-Sharing ein Instrument zur Beendigung von Gewalt darstellt, belegen die Daten, dass der Konflikt häufig nach Unterzeichnung eines Abkommens fortlebt, auch wenn Regelungen zur Machtteilung vorgesehen sind. Dass Power-Sharing Wahlen begünstigt, lässt sich nicht belegen; im Gegenteil, es kommt häufiger vor, dass nach einem Friedensprozess ohne Power-Sharing-Abkommen Wahlen abgehalten werden. Eine Periode der Machtteilung vor Wahlen scheint eine anschließende friedliche Entwicklung nicht zu fördern; Wahlen sind in diesem Fall ähnlich konfliktreich wie Wahlen, die nach Friedensvereinbarungen ohne Machtteilungsklauseln abgehalten wurden. Als gute Nachricht kann gelten, dass Power-Sharing keinen negativen Effekt auf eine friedliche Entwicklung nach Wahlen zu haben scheint.

  5. Entwicklung von Landnutzungsszenarien für landschaftsökologische Fragestellungen

    Fritsch, Uta

    2002-04-01

    Die Landschaften Mitteleuropas sind das Resultat einer langwierigen Geschichte menschlicher Landnutzung mit ihren unterschiedlichen, z.T. konkurrierenden Nutzungsansprüchen. Durch eine überwiegend intensive Beanspruchung haben die direkten und indirekten Auswirkungen der Landnutzung in vielen Fällen zu Umweltproblemen geführt. Die Disziplin der Landschaftsökologie hat es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht, Konzepte für eine nachhaltige Nutzung der Landschaft zu entwickeln. Eine wichtige Fragestellung stellt dabei die Abschätzung der möglichen Folgen von Landnutzungsänderungen dar. Für die Analyse der relevanten Prozesse in der Landschaft werden häufig mathematische Modelle eingesetzt, welche es erlauben die Landschaft unter aktuellen Verhältnissen oder hinsichtlich veränderter Rahmenbedingungen zu untersuchen. Die hypothetische Änderung der Landnutzung, die als Landnutzungsszenario bezeichnet wird, verkörpert eine wesentliche Modifikation der Rahmenbedingungen, weil Landnutzung mageblich Einfluss auf die natürlichen Prozesse der Landschaft nimmt. Während die Antriebskräfte einer solchen Änderung überwiegend von sozio-ökonomischen und politischen Entscheidungen gesteuert werden, orientiert sich die exakte Verortung der Landnutzungsänderungen an den naturräumlichen Bedingungen und folgt z.T. erkennbaren Regeln. Anhand dieser Vorgaben ist es möglich, räumlich explizite Landnutzungsszenarien zu entwickeln, die als Eingangsdaten für die Modellierung verschiedener landschaftsökologischer Fragestellungen wie z.B. für die Untersuchung des Einflusses der Landnutzung auf den Wasserhaushalt, die Erosionsgefahr oder die Habitatqualität dienen können. Im Rahmen dieser Dissertation wurde das rasterbasierte deterministische Allokationsmodell luck (Land Use Change Scenario Kit) für die explizite Verortung der Landnutzungsänderungen entwickelt. Es basiert auf den in der Landschaftsökologie üblichen räumlichen Daten wie Landnutzung, Boden sowie Topographie

    2009-02-01

    Full Text Available Computerspiele sind heute aus der digitalen Medienwelt nicht mehr wegzudenken. Ihre rasante technische Entwicklung sowie ihre hohe Akzeptanz in der Jugendkultur werfen Fragen nach pädagogischer Verwertbarkeit dieses Mediums auf. Auf diesem Gebiet besteht Forschungsbedarf: Für den Einsatz aktueller Spielkonzepte als Lehrmittel existieren keine fundierten Theorien oder Konzepte. Der schöpferische Umgang mit Spielen durch Anwender («Emergent Gameplay» bietet hier durch sein hohes Motivationspotential einen vielversprechenden Ansatz. Die oft wenig beachtete Rolle der digitalen Spielen zugrunde liegenden Softwaretechnik sollte stärkere Berücksichtigung finden: Es existiert einerseits ein für die Akzeptanz beim Anwender notwendiges Minimum, andererseits ist der Einsatz des aktuellen technischen «state of the art» für die Umsetzung pädagogischer und didaktischer Ambitionen durch seine enormen Anforderungen wenig zielführend. Im Ergebnis sind Idee und Spielspass das Mass auch für Anwendungen des Game Based Learn­ing.

  7. Entwicklung der Körpermaße von Zuchtsauen – Konsequenzen für die Maße von Kastenständen

    2015-02-01

    Full Text Available Der Platz­anspruch für das Liegen im Kastenstand wurde anhand der körperlichen Entwicklung von 128 Sauen abgeleitet, die jeweils kurz vor der Abferkelung durchschnittlich über 2,5 Würfe hinweg gewogen und vermessen wurden. Die altersabhängige relative Entwicklung des Körpergewichtes (+47 % ist zwangsläufig deutlich höher als die Entwicklung der Körpermaße (+10 bis 18 %. Absolut und relativ gesehen, wachsen die Sauen mehr in die Länge und Höhe als in die Körperbreite. Auch ist die gemessene Streuung der Körperbreite geringer als die der anderen Körpermaße. Während die gesetzliche Vorgabe für den Kastenstand von 200 cm Länge bei 65 cm Breite für die Jungsauen eher reichlich ist und zu Verletzungen und Problemen mit der Buchtensauberkeit führen kann, ist die gesetzlich Vorgabe von 200 cm Länge und 70 cm Breite für ausgewachsene Altsauen knapp. Dabei ist der zusätzliche Platzanspruch nicht berücksichtigt, der sich aus der Dynamik der Körperbewegungen ergibt (+10 bis 14 %. Beim Neubau von Ställen für vergleichbar großrahmige genetische Herkünfte ergibt sich daraus für große Sauen ein lichtes Maß von etwa 80 cm Breite. Für kleinere bzw. jüngere Sauen sollte dieses mindestens einmal, besser zweimal (70 und 60 cm differenziert werden.

    Full Text Available Nathalie Friedrichs proposes the following lesson plan for the senior classes of the German Gymnasium (grammar-school: „Die Entwicklung eines nationalen Identitätsbewusstseins in den von Napoleon besetzten Ländern“ (The Development of a National Sense of Identity in the Countries Occupied by Napeoleon.The central question, however, is whether this new German national consciousness at the dawn of the 19th century can be traced back to Napoleon’s reign in the Rhineland region or whether it emerged during the wars of liberation as a result of a firm rejection of Napoleon.The following materials will be given to the pupils beforhand: A short preparatory text with essential background information, a pithy quote , and two historical sources, namely the appeal of Ludwig Adolf Peter Graf von Sayn-Wittgenstein to support the war of liberation, and another more francophile source by the physician Adolf Kußmaul. The latter source points in the direction of a positive experience during the time of French occupation and therefore relativises the claim of a German patriotism as a direct result of the war against France. From a didactical viewpoint, the lesson aims to develop the prerequisites for a critical analysis of historical source texts and different points of view on the topic. Finally, a table listing the respective pros and cons of the Napoleonic arguments is sketched out, visualising the perspectives of the students and leading to the final discussion, which should produce answers to the questions of the role of Napoleon for the Germans.

    Nestvogel, Renate

    1987-12-01

    The author presents first steps towards a development-based concept of women's education in the industrialized countries. Some elements of this concept are: (1) planning and action in a global context, (2) the local or regional bias given to education, (3) promotion of an intercultural perspective, (4) reducing the power of structures that encourage oppression. The author's observations are based on the following propositions: the `development process' in the industrialized countries has had terrible effects all over the world and it is necessary that women also consider their roles in what the author considers to be a process of destruction. This is because women are part of the overall system and contribute to its perpetuation in the measure of their own socialization. Connections are established between the destruction of the environment and the individual, as also between the victims and assailants of racism and sexism with a view to clarifying unidentified parts of the female consciousness. Beyond this, the role of European women in the context of colonialism and the present contact between European women and their counterparts from other cultures are examined with particular attention being paid to the exercise of power and force in the family and society.

    This project was focused on the development of stable PV modules based on a-Si, and on the process transfer from a laboratory scale to a large-area production level. Central to these efforts is the economic relevance that requires reasonable module efficiencies obtained with high throughput and yield. Our modules contain p-i-n/p-i-n (a-Si/a-Si) cell structures that are based on deposition procedures developed at ISI, i.e. low-temperature deposition and high hydrogen dilution for the top cell, and microdoping between the p-layer and the buffer layer for the cottom cell. The maximum stabilized (1800 h) module efficiency obtained by production-relevant processes is 6.5% for the aperture area of 5445 cm{sup 2}. (orig.) [Deutsch] Die Arbeiten im Rahmen des Projekts konzentrierten sich auf die Entwicklung moeglicht stabiler a-Si-PV-Module und auf die Umsetzung vorhandener Labortechniken in einen industriellen Fertigungsmassstab.

    In August 1993 the first German `Delphi Report on Developments in Science and Technology` was published. It was elaborated by the Fraunhofer Institute for System Engineering and Innovation Research (FhG-ISI) in cooperation with the Japanese National Institute of Science and Technology Policy (NISTEP). The `MINI-DELPHI` now completed by FhG-ISI, again in cooperation with NISTEP, is a further development of the Delphi approach in that it is more differentiated in its questions and assessment criteria than its predecessors. `MINI-DELPHI` is not intended as a comprehensive forecast on technology in general but rather focusses on key topics. Its emphasis is on technology demand and the relevance of technologies to social issues. Although the Mini-Delphi study was primarily aimed at further refining the methodology employed, it nevertheless contains a wealth of information and details on circumscript questions. The requisite database is provided by tables on the results of two inquiry rounds among Japanese and German experts.

    The goal of the VERMEIL project was to increase the quality of process control systems by using knowledge based methods. One important aspect therein is the quality of the documentation describing the control system. The research done in the subproject of the Society for the Promotion of Applied Computerscience (GFal) produced a basis for the development of graphical editors of a special kind. These graphical editors can be used to create classes of schematic drawings. There were two major aspects concerning the development of graphical editors. First, the editors should provide advanced graphical support. That includes automation of the layout of schematic drawings. Second, the editors should automatically lead to correct structures within the schematics, therefore making certain that the created document is semantically correct, also. Apart from the theoretical and conceptional research, some automated layout algorithms were created in the project. A new prototype of an intelligent graphical editor came into existence, that proves the results of the VERMEIL project and shows the necessity of such a project. (orig.) [Deutsch] Das Ziel des Projektes VERMEIL bestand darin, die Qualitaet von Prozessleittechnik durch den Einsatz von wissensbasierten Methoden waehrend ihrer Projektierung zu erhoehen. Ein Aspekt dabei ist die Qualitaet der Dokumentation, die eine Anlage beschreibt. Im Teilprojekt der GFal wurden deshalb Untersuchungen durchgefuehrt, die die methodischen Grundlagen fuer die Entwicklung spezieller grafischer Editoren fuer die Herstellung von Klassen schematischer Darstellungen schufen. Dabei spielen zwei Aspekte eine grosse Rolle. Einmal sollen diese Editoren in der Lage sein, dem Benutzer weitgehende grafische Unterstuetzungen zu geben. Das dabei erreichte Ziel beinhaltet eine umfassende automatisierte Layoutunterstuetzung beim Erstellen von grafischen Dokumenten. Ferner ist dafuer zu sorgen, dass die entstehenden Zeichnungen zu strukturell korrekten

    A short-term test method for in-situ measurement of the collector field, pipelines and heat exchanger of large-surface solar systems was developed at ZAE Bayern, together with the necessary technical systems (mobile acquisition of meteorological data via telemetering, non-invasive surface temperature sensors and ultrasonic volume flow measuring instruments). Dynamic measurements were made for 11 days in a large-surface solar system of the ``Solarthermie 2000`` programme using the new measuring system. In order to optimize the evaluation procedure, the plant was simulated, and the influence of different models and operating conditions during the measurements on the prediction quality was investigated in detail. On this basis, it was possible to predict the long-term collector yield of the ZfS Hilden, which was measured for a period of 7 months, with an error of less than 5%. The method will be validated in two further industrial-scale systems. [Deutsch] Am ZAE Bayern wurde ein Kurzzeittestverfahren zur insitu-Vermessung des Kollektorkreises (Kollektorfeld, Rohrleitungen, Waermetauscher) grosser Solaranlagen entwickelt. Hierzu wurde eine der Aufgabenstellung angepasste Messtechnik entwickelt (Mobile meteorologische Datenerfassung mit Funkbetrieb, nicht-invasive Oberflaechen-Temperaturfuehler und Ultraschall-Volumenstrommessgeraete). Der Kollektorkreis einer grossen Solaranlage aus dem Programm Solarthermie 2000 wurde dynamisch ueber 11 Tage (29.10.-8.11.1997) mit der neuen Messtechnik vermessen. Zur Entwicklung eines geeigneten Auswerteverfahrens wurde die Anlage simulatorisch abgebildet und der Einfluss verschiedener Modellansaetze und der Betriebsbedingungen waehrend des Mess- und Vorhersagezeitraums auf die Vorhersageguete im Detail untersucht. Mit dem entwickelten Verfahren konnte aus der dynamischen Kurzzeitvermessung der in einer Langzeitmessung der ZfS Hilden ueber 7 Monate ermittelte Kollektorertrag nach dem solaren Waermetauscher auf deutlich besser als 5

    The study presented here describes the development of a laboratory test system for the determination of aerobic biodegradability of substances at low concentrations in surface water. It was aimed to prepare a draft guideline for a biodegradation simulation test according to OECD format. The experimental approach was based on a literature study conducted within the frame of this project. Further useful information on the possible test design was derived from the German BBA guideline 5-1. Natural water and sediments were collected. Radiolabelled Lindane or 4-Nitrophenol was added. The test vessels (reactors) were aerated and incubated under controlled conditions for up to 92 days. The results showed biological stability of the sediment/water systems even without addition of nutrients and adherence to non-reducing conditions. Mineralisation of 4-Nitrophenol was influenced by the sediment type, the method of aeration and temperature. Factors affecting the mineralisation of Lindane were the method of application and again, the sediment type and temperature. Considerable amounts of the radioactivity were bound to the sediment and were to a large extent unextractable. The potential of a reactor to mineralise a test substance could not be correlated with the biological parameters measured. (orig.)

    The focus was on the development and optimisation of the close-spaced sublimation process in an inline coating plant for production of stable high-efficiency CdS/CdTe solar wafers. An inline plant was to be constructed by ANTEC GmbH and ISFH. Film layers were to be optimised, and investigations were to show whether processing of single films is possible without breaking the vacuum, e.g. for etching. The results were to be used directly by ANTEC GmbH. An efficiency of 14 percent and an idle voltage of about 850 V were to be achieved with a film thickness of 2 {mu}m. To achieve these goals, the following project stages were envisaged: 1. Replacement of the expensive window material ITO by a less costly material. 2. Higher stability of the back contact by using appropriate intermediate layers. 3. Alternative activation processes other than the conventional CdCl{sub 2} activation. 4. Investigation of the effects of the activation step on the electric properties of the sample. [German] Die uebergreifende Aufgabenstellung des Projektes war die Entwicklung und Optimierung des Close-spaced-Sublimation verfahrens in einer Inline-Beschichtungsanlage fuer die Herstellung stabiler und hocheffizienter CdS/CdTe Duennschichtsolarzellen. Mit dem Wissen der ANTEC GmbH sollte zusammen mit dem ISFH eine Inline-Anlage konzipiert und gebaut werden. Die fuer die Solarzelle notwendigen Einzelschichten sollten in dem Inline-Prozess optimiert werden. Es sollte ermittelt werden, ob eine Prozessierung der Einzelschichten ohne Brechen des Vakuums, z.B. fuer einen Aetzschritt, moeglich ist. Die erzielten Ergebnisse sollen direkt der ANTEC GmbH zufliessen. In dem Projekt wurde als Endziel ein Wirkungsgrad der CdTe/CdS-Duennschichtsolarzelle von 14% und eine Erhoehung der Leerlaufspannung auf Werte um 850 mV angestrebt. Gleichzeitig sollte die CdTe-Schichtdicke auf 2 {mu}m vermindert werden. Um dieses Gesamtziel zu erreichen, sollen folgende Teilaufgaben bearbeitet werden: 1) Das teuere

    deliverables. A precondition for this is the continued work and the successful combination of the present solutions with new innovative materials. (orig.) [German] Waermedaemmstoffe finden in unterschiedlichen Bereichen, aus denen ihre speziellen Aufgaben resultieren, Anwendung. Materialien wie Daemmstoffe aus Mineralfasern und Schaumkunststoffe werden im Bauwesen und fuer die Industriedaemmung eingesetzt. Waermedaemmstoffe aus natuerlichen Rohstoffen finden, wenn auch nur begrenzt, im Bauwesen Anwendung. Im Bekleidungsbereich werden neben Vliesstoffen aus synthetischen Polymeren oder Schafwolle besonders im out-door-Bereich gestrickte Fleece verwendet. Die Zielstellung des Projektes besteht in der Entwicklung eines Daemmmaterials mit sehr geringer Waermeleitfaehigkeit bei sehr geringer Dichte sowie hohen Freiheitsgraden hinsichtlich der Struktur- und Stoffparameter. Die Umsetzung erfolgt mit dem Verfahren der elektrostatischen Beflockung. Es wird ein Rechenmodell zur Ermittlung optimaler Strukturen hinsichtlich Waermeleitfaehigkeit und Dichte erstellt. Im Anschluss an eine anforderungsgerechte Materialauswahl werden praktische Untersuchungen zur Wirkungsweise des Materials durchgefuehrt. Es wird eine Technikumsanlage zur kontinuierlichen Herstellung des Materials installiert und erprobt. Das Ergebnis des Projektes besteht in einer sehr variablen gestaltbaren Daemmstoffstruktur mit hervorragenden Eigenschaften. Das entwickelte Material wird als Super-Isolations-Flock-Daemmstoff bezeichnet. Bei definierten Strukturbedingungen und entsprechender Materialauswahl koennen Werte fuer die Waermleitfaehigkeit im Bereich von 0,027 W/mK und 0,030 W/mK erreicht werden. Die Dichte fuer derartige Strukturen liegt im Bereich zwischen 10 kg/m{sup 3} und 20 kg/m{sup 3}. Fuer Anwendungsbeispiele ohne hohen mechanische Anforderunge koennen Strukturen mit einer Dichte von ca. 7 kg/m{sup 3} erzielt werden.

    und die Erstellung eines einheitlichen Berechnungsansatzes. Als Grundlage fuer die durchgefuehrten Berechnungen dienten die deutschen Vorschriften der aktuellen Energieeinsparverordnung in Kombination mit der Berechnungsnorm DIN 4108-6 sowie DIN 4701-10. Hierzu wurden die klimatischen Bedingungen Russlands am Beispiel der russischen Metropole Sankt Petersburg in die Berechnungen integriert. Die Datenanalyse des Bestandsgebaeudes eroeffnet eine grosse Bandbreite an Moeglichkeiten zur Erhoehung der Energieeffizienz. So wird unter anderem im Zuge der Berechnungen festgestellt, dass durch relativ kostenguenstige Massnahmen zur Verbesserung des Waermeschutzes eine bedeutende Verringerung des Endenergiebedarfs erreicht werden kann. Es werden weiterhin moegliche Sanierungsvarianten unter Einbeziehung verschiedener Materialien und Heizungsanlagen vorgestellt. Die Ergebnisse machen deutlich, dass die Zukunft russischer Wohnhaeuser wie der hier dargestellten Typenserie 1-507 alles andere als aussichtslos ist, wie oft vermutet wird. Sie koennen im Gegenteil durchaus als komfortabler und funktionaler Wohnraum dienen. Auch die Verwendung regenerativer Energiequellen wie der Solarenergie ist unter den Bedingungen einer noerdlich gelegenen Stadt wie Sankt Petersburg realisierbar. Die durchgefuehrten Berechnungen zeigen, dass eine Sanierung der russischen Wohnbauten der ersten Periode des industriellen Bauens durchaus lohnenswert sein kann, insbesondere wenn man die Entwicklung der Energiepreise betrachtet. In seiner energieeffizientesten Form (''Passivhaus'') bringt eine Sanierung eine Reduzierung des Endenergiebedarfs von bis zu 90 % im Vergleich zum Bestandsgebaeude mit sich.

  9. Hartbearbeitungen durch Drehen, Bohren und Fräsen

    Barfels, Lutz

    Lange Zeit dachte man bei der spanabhebenden Bearbeitung gehärteter Stähle nur an eine Schleifbearbeitung. Die Entwicklung der hoch- bzw. superharten Schneidstoffe CBN (Kubisches Bornitrid, siehe auch Abschn. 20.3.3.16 "Schneidstoffe" und Abschn. 23.2 "Keramische Werkstoffe") und PKB (Polykristallines kubisches Bornitrid) führte seit den 1980er Jahren zur Zerspanung dieser Werkstoffe mit geometrisch bestimmten Schneiden. Seit dieser Zeit wird die Bearbeitung gehärteter Werkstoffe mit einer Härte über 50 HRC als Hartbearbeitung oder Hartzerspanung bezeichnet. Sie wird sowohl beim Drehen als auch beim Bohren und Fräsen eingesetzt. Die größte Bedeutung hat hier das Hartdrehen. Während das Hartdrehen bis vor einigen Jahren beinah ausschließlich in der Einzel- und Kleinserienfertigung eingesetzt wurde, wird es heute zunehmend auch für Großserien und in der Massenfertigung angewendet. In der Regel bestehen Vorteile für den Einsatz des Hartdrehens dann, wenn in einer Aufspannung mehrere unterschiedliche Geometrie- oder Formelemente (konisch, zylindrisch, …) bearbeitet werden müssen. Bei der Bearbeitung in einer Aufspannung sind sehr gute Lagegenauigkeiten der Funktionsflächen erreichbar. Weiterhin sind Hartdrehprozesse für die Innen- und die Außenkonturbearbeitung von großer Bedeutung.

    A new embossing and punching machine is described. The machine, with the working name FBR 104, combines maximum quality with high speed. Details are presented. [German] Ein Foliendruck dient der Veredelung von Drucksachen durch Gold-, Silber- und Farbfolien. Auch im Security-Bereich wird der Foliendruck in Zukunft mehr eingesetzt werden. Spezielle Folienoberflaechen und Hologramme sind wegen der hohen Faelschungssicherheit gefragt. Um mit den am haeufigsten fuer eine hohe Auflage (10.000 Bogen pro Stunde) eingesetzten Maschinen, den Offset-Rotationen, Schritt halten zu koennen, musste es eine Rotation sein. Die Idee einer schnellen Foliendruck-Bogen-Rotation mit dem Prinzip rund/rund war damit geboren. Es wurde der Arbeitstitel FBR 104 gewaehlt, diese Bezeichnung beinhaltet Foliendruck-Bogen-Rotation, Arbeitsbreite 104 cm. Zwei Jahre Forschung, Entwicklung und das Sammeln von Ideen waren die ersten Schritte, die zur Konstruktion, dem Bau von Prototypen, dem Erstellen von Programmen und schliesslich der monatelangen Versuche dienten. Im Folienbereich konnte nichts von den bisher bekannten Arbeitsablaeufen uebernommen werden. Alles war neu zu erarbeiten. So entstand die FBR 104. Die Basis der FBR 104 ist eine moderne Bogenrotation, gebaut im hoechsten Qualitaetsstandard, entwickelt und konstruiert fuer eine voellig neue Hochgeschwindigkeits-Folientechnik. Als Realisation des Gesamtkonzepts steht jetzt eine High-Tech-Maschine vor, leistungsstark wie zweckmaessig. (orig.)

    Major objectives of this project are: to prepare a cross-disciplinary analysis of all characteristic aspects of the energy supply and demand patterns of a group of selected energy-intensive companies in the Karlsruhe and Rhine harbour area (5 industrial power consumers, 1 utility), to identify practical approaches for optimization and integration of energy and material flows, (networking), and to develop optimised investment and energy supply options within the framework of given conditions. The basis of the optimal solution and energy network presented and explained in detail is a new combined-cycle power plant running as a gas-fired CHP plant, substituting about 50% of the systems formerly used. (orig./CB) [German] Fragestellungen der Effizienzsteigerung und der Verwertung von Abfaellen und Abwaerme gewinnen an Relevanz vor dem Hintergrund der begrenzten Aufnahmekapazitaet der Umweltmedien fuer Schadstoffe. Im Rahmen des Projektes wurde am Beispiel der Region Karlsruhe (5 Industrieunternehmen und 1 EVU) die Entwicklung betriebsuebergreifender Energieversorgungssysteme (Netzwerke) interdisziplinaer analysiert und beschrieben. Zielsetzungen des Projekts waren unter anderem: Bestimmung von zukunftsfaehigen Optionen, intelligente Vernetzung von Energiestroemen, wirtschaftliche Optimierung betriebsuebergreifender Energiemanagement-Loesungen. Die optimale vorgestellte Loesung ist charakterisiert durch den Neubau einer zentralen, gasgefeuerten GuD-Anlage, die etwa die Haelfte der bisherigen Anlagen ersetzt und zusammen mit den weiterhin genutzten Anlagen die Energieversorgung der Unternehmen sicherstellt.

    When it comes to assessing the hazards emanating from heavy pollutants in waters mere elemental analysis provides too little information. Due to the great differences in toxicity and mobility it is important to know more about the exact species in question. This is particularly true of heavy metals that form stable organyls, specifically As, Pb, Sn and Hg, but also of alkylated arsenic acids, which need to be measured in complex anion mixtures. The purpose of the present project was to develop robust, powerful analysis methods and thus overcome the existing deficit in reliable analysis methods for these substances. An important approach in this connection is the use of coupled chromatography and detection systems for separation and analysis. [German] Hinsichtlich der von einer Schwermetallbelastung in Gewaessern ausgehenden Gefahren liefert die reine Elementanalytik nur unzureichende Aussagen. Aufgrund der grossen Unterschiede in Toxiditaet und Mobilitaet ist die Kenntnis der jeweils vorliegenden Spezies bedeutungsvoll. Dies gilt in besonderem Masse fuer die stabile Organyle bildenden Schwermetalle As, Pb, Sn und Hg sowie die alkylierten Arsensaeuren, die es innerhalb komplexer Anionengemische zu bestimmen gilt. Hinsichtlich ihrer sicheren Bestimmung bestehen methodische Defizite, die das vorliegende Projekt durch die Entwicklung robuster, nachweisstarker Analysenverfahren zu beseitigen versucht. Grosse Bedeutung kommt dabei gekoppelten Systemen aus Chromatographie und Detektion als Trenn- und Bestimmungsmethode zu. (orig.)

    A solar refrigerator for air conditioning and cooling was developed. The key component is a two-phase, two-component jet pump with ammonia and water as working fluid. Both the pump flow and the suction flow can be two-phase flows. This way, the advantages of both the absorption and the compression principle will be utilized, and a compact size will be achieved. Upon termination of the calculations, the function of the pump will be investigated in a 0 W pilot plant. For this, various geometries were calculated and tested for their potential efficiencies. A prototype will be constructed on the basis of the results. [German] Das Ziel des Vorhabens besteht in der Entwicklung einer solarbetriebenen Kaelteanlage fuer Klimatisierungs- und Kuehlungszwecke. Die Hauptkomponente der Kaelteanlage ist eine Zweiphasen-/Zweikomponenten-Strahlpumpe, die mit dem Arbeitsgemisch Ammoniak/Wasser betrieben wird. Sowohl der Treib- als auch der Saugstrom koennen zweiphasig sein. Dadurch sollen einerseits die Vorteile des Absorptions- und des Kompressionsprinzips miteinander verknuepft und andererseits ein kompakter Aufbau erreicht werden. Nach Abschluss der thermodynamischen und kinetischen Berechnungen soll die Funktion der Zweiphasen-/Zweikomponenten-Strahlpumpe mit Hilfe einer Pilotanlage mit ca. 20 kW Kaelteleistung untersucht werden. Dazu werden nach Vorausberechnungen verschiedene Geometrien in Bezug auf erzielbare Wirkungsgrade getestet. Die Ergebnisse bilden die Basis fuer den Bau eines Prototyps. (orig.)

    Full Text Available The impact of an Erasmus study period abroad for mobile students and teaching assignments of Erasmus teachers on professional development is the focus of the article. Temporary study abroad is expected to have a positive impact on personal and academic development, but also to be conducive to transition to employment and career development. Though the impact has been declining, study abroad remains an important experience for the professional career. Erasmus teaching assignments often do not last longer than a few days. Nevertheless, mobile teachers report a positive impact on their career. The article is based on the VALERA Study1 “The professional value of Erasmus mobility”, a European-wide evaluation study by the International Centre for Higher Education Research Kassel.Im Zentrum des Artikels steht der Einfluss temporärer internationaler Studien- und Lehraufenthalte auf den Berufsweg ehemaliger Erasmus Studierender und Lehrender. Es wird erwartet, dass ein Auslandsaufenthalt während des Studiums nicht nur auf die persönliche und akademische Entwicklung der mobilen Studierenden einen positiven Einfluss hat, sondern auch auf den Übergang in den Beruf und die erste Karriere. Ein Auslandsaufenthalt im Studium hat einen sehr wichtigen Einfluss auf die berufliche Entwicklung ehemals mobiler Studierender, auch wenn der individuelle Ertrag im Laufe der Zeit gesunken ist. Lehraufenthalte im Rahmen des Erasmus Programmes dauern häufig nicht länger als wenige Tage. Dennoch berichten auch die Erasmus Lehrenden von einem positiven Einfluss des Lehraufenthaltes im Ausland auf ihre berufliche Entwicklung.

    The aim of the present project is to develop a stack design for a 5-kW HTPEFC system. First, the state of the art of potential materials and process designs will be discussed for each component. Then, using this as a basis, three potential stack designs with typical attributes will be developed and assessed in terms of practicality with the aid of a specially derived evaluation method. Two stack designs classified as promising will be discussed in detail, constructed and then characterized using short stack tests. Comparing the stack designs reveals that both designs are fundamentally suitable for application in a HT-PEFC system with on-board supply. However, some of the performance data differ significantly for the two stack designs. The preferred stack design for application in a HT-PEFC system is characterized by robust operating behaviour and reproducible high-level performance data. Moreover, in compact constructions (120 W/l at 60 W/kg), the stack design allows flexible cooling with thermal oil or air, which can be adapted to suit specific applications. Furthermore, a defined temperature gradient can be set during operation, allowing the CO tolerance to be increased by up to 10 mV. The short stack design developed within the scope of the present work therefore represents an ideal basis for developing a 5-kW HT-PEFC system. Topics for further research activities include improving the performance by reducing weight and/or volume, as well as optimizing the heat management. The results achieved within the framework of this work clearly show that HTPEFC stacks have the potential to play a decisive role in increasing efficiency in the future, particularly when combined with an on-board supply system.

    The aim of the research project is the development of a technique for reasonably priced mass- production of large area holographic focussers for photo-electrics. The holograms up to 1 m{sup 2} in size simultaneously act as spectrum dispersing and focussing optical elements, which focus the sunlight in discrete bands on spectrally matched solar cells. The three most important characteristics of the holographic focussers are the refractive efficiency, the spectrum bandwidth and the central working wavelength. The optimum values of the parameters conditional on the variation of the layer thickness and the mean refractive index via the aperture of the hologram and on the ability of the layer to make large modulations of the refractive index possible. The mass-production of large format holographic lenses demands precise coating of the carrier substrate of the hologram copies with dichromate gelatine and is done with the aid of a scanning copying process. (orig.) [Deutsch] Ziel des Forschungsvorhabens ist die Entwicklung einer Technololgie fuer die preiswerte serielle Herstellung von grossflaechigen holographischen Konzentratoren fuer die Photovoltaik. Die bis zu 1 m{sup 2} grossen Hologramme wirken gleichzeitig als spektral dispergierende und fokussierende optische Elemente, die das Sonnenlicht in diskreten Baendern auf spektral angepasste Solarzellen konzentrieren. Die drei wichtigsten Charakteristiken der holographischen Konzentratoren sind die Beugungseffizienz, die spektrale Bandbreite und die zentrale Arbeitswellenlaenge. Die optimalen Werte dieser Parameter sind eindeutig durch die Variation der Schichtdicke und des mittleren Brechungsindexes ueber die Apertur des Hologramms sowie durch die Faehigkeit der Schicht, grosse Brechnungsindexmodulation zu ermoeglichen, bedingt. Die serielle Fertigung der grossformatigen holographischen Linsen verlangt eine praezise Beschichtung der Traegersubstrate der Hologrammkopien mit Dichromat-Gelatine und erfolgt mit Hilfe eines

    Full Text Available In recent years, there has been a surge of “Northern” policy documents concerned with increasing the positive effects of international migration in countries of origin. This article contrasts some basic assumptions in policies on migration, return and development with an anthropological study of Cape Verdean returnees, and it reveals some important disparities between the returnees’ experiences and the ideas underpinning policy documents. The article analyses the role returnees’ savings and skills play in local change in Cape Verde, and in particular it looks into entrepreneurial activities. This is related to a discussion of the conditions that must be fulfilled in order to make it possible for return migrants to contribute to positive social change. In conclusion, the article shows that structural conditions have a fundamental impact on individual migrants’ abilities to support development, a perspective often left out of contemporary policies.In jüngster Zeit entstand eine Flut politischer Dokumente im “Norden”, die sich mit den positiven Effekten internationaler Migration in den Ursprungsländern der Migranten beschäftigen. Der vorliegende Beitrag kontrastiert einige grundlegende Annahmen im Bereich der Migrations-, Rückkehrer- und Entwicklungspolitik mit den Ergebnissen einer anthropologischen Studie über Rückkehrer nach Kap Verde und deckt einige gravierende Differenzen zwischen diesen Grundannahmen und den Erfahrungen der Rückkehrer auf. Die Autorin analysiert, welche Bedeutung die Ersparnisse und die Qualifikationen der Rückkehrer für den lokalen gesellschaftlichen Wandel haben und ist dabei insbesondere an unternehmerischen Aktivitäten interessiert. Darauf aufbauend diskutiert sie, unter welchen Bedingungen zurückkehrende Migranten positiv zum sozialen Wandel beitragen können. Sie kommt zu dem Schluss, dass die Möglichkeiten für einzelne Rückkehrer, die Entwicklung ihres Heimatlandes positiv zu beeinflussen

    The development of direct-injection gasoline engines at Volkswagen was supported strictly from the beginning by the means of optical diagnostics and CFD-simulations. Basic phenomena, such as the formation of the in-cylinder flow field, the penetration of the spray formed by a hollow-cone swirl-type injector at high fuel pressure, the interaction of spray and flow and the formation of an ignitable mixture were analysed in details. The paper describes the laser-optical techniques-particle-image-velocimetry, laser-Doppler-anemometry, videostroboscopy, high-speed cinematography and laser-induced fluorescence - which were used during the development of the DI gasoline combustion process. Examples taken from engines with optical access to the combustion chamber demonstrate the capability of the techniques and pinpoint where the design of the combustion process benefits from experimental and simulation investigations. (orig.) [German] Die Entwicklung von Ottomotoren mit Benzin-Direkteinspritzung wurde bei Volkswagen von Beginn an konsequent durch den Einsatz optischer Messverfahren und CFD-Simulationen unterstuetzt. Damit konnten grundlegende Phaenomene, wie die Ausbildung des Stroemungsfeldes im Motorbrennraum, die Ausbreitung des durch einen Hohlkegel-Drallinjektor unter hohem Druck eingespritzten Kraftstoffs sowie die Wechselwirkung der Luftstroemung im Zylinder mit den Einspritzstrahlen und die Bildung einer zuendfaehigen Ladungswolke detailliert untersucht werden. Das Paper beschreibt die laseroptischen Messverfahren - Particle-Image-Velocimetry, Laser-Doppler-Anemometry, Video-Stroboskopie, Hochgeschwindikgkeits-Kinematographie und Laserinduzierte Fluoreszenz - die bei der Brennverfahrensentwicklung eingesetzt werden und zeigt anhand einer Reihe von konkreten Beispielen, wo Antworten auf Grundsatzfragen zur Auslegung des Brennverfahrens durch Messergebnisse an optisch zugaenglichen Motoren und durch CFD-Simulationen erarbeitet werden koennen.

    The topic of this thesis has been the development of new heterogeneous catalysts for the decomposition of methanol into hydrogen and carbon monoxide. As an important constraint here, the content of noble metals of the catalysts should be as low as possible. High-throughput-methods were applied in some of the syntheses and experiments to accelerate the development, as, for example, the use of liquid based sol-gel syntheses and the examination of catalyst libraries by spatial resolution gas chromatography. This screening technique allowed to test up to 207 different substances during one single experiment. Then, different combinatorial strategies were applied. First, these methods led to a highly active and stable catalyst in the ternary system of Cu-Ni-Zn, which showed high conversion and selectivity comparable to an industrial reference catalyst. Its activity during an 18 hour long term run was constant in contrast to the reference. Second, an additional approach starting from a broader variety of elements led to a Ce- Ru- and to a Cr-Ru-catalyst. Both of them were highly active in short term experiments, but lost their outstanding performances during long term runs. (orig.) [German] Die vorliegende Arbeit befasste sich mit der Entwicklung neuer heterogener Katalysatoren fuer die Spaltung von Methanol zu Wasserstoff und Kohlenmonoxid, die einen moeglichst geringen Gehalt an Edelmetallen aufweisen sollten. Um diesen Prozess zu beschleunigen, wurden in einem Teil der Synthesen und Experimente Hochdurchsatzmethoden verwendet. Neben der Roboter gestuetzten Sol-Gel-Synthese umfasste dies die Untersuchung von Katalysatorbibliotheken mittels ortsaufgeloester Gaschromatographie, die es ermoeglichte, in einem Experiment bis zu 207 verschiedene Substanzen auf ihre katalytische Aktivitaet zu testen. Unter Anwendung verschiedener kombinatorischer Strategien wurde zunaechst ein sehr aktiver und stabiler Katalysator im ternaeren Cu-Ni-Zn-System entdeckt. Neben Umsaetzen und

Development of a measuring and evaluation method for X-ray analysis of residual stresses in the surface region of polycrystalline materials; Entwicklung eines Mess- und Auswerteverfahrens zur roentgenographischen Analyse des Eigenspannungszustandes im Oberflaechenbereich vielkristalliner Werkstoffe

    The topic of the habilitation thesis is the development of an X-ray diffraction method for measurement and depth-resolved analysis of internal stresses in the surface region of polycrystalline materials. The method relies on the basic approach of varying {tau}, the penetration depth of the X-rays in the materials, by the scattering vector g{sub theta{psi}} via stepwise specimen rotation. Thus, depth profiles of the interlattice plane distances d(hkl) in the specimen system can be derived for given direction and inclination angles {theta} and {psi} of the scattering vector. This offers the possibility to identify individual components of the stress tensors of the basic equation of the X-ray diffraction analysis, and to perform separate analyses of those components. For calculation of the relevant internal stress distributions {sigma}{sub ij}({tau}) using the interlattice plane distance profiles, a self-consistent method is established which takes into account the high sensitivity of the derived internal stresses in relation to the interlattice plane distance d{sub 0}(hkl) in the stress-free crystal lattice. The evaluation yields results describing the depth profiles as well as the strain-free interlattice plane distance d{sub 0}(hkl), so that a quantitative analysis is possible of tri-axial internal stress states in the surface region of the materials. (orig./CB) [German] Den Gegenstand der vorliegenden Arbeit bildet die Entwicklung eines roentgenographischen Mess- und Auswerteverfahrens zur tiefenaufgeloesten Analyse des oberflaechennahen Eigenspannungszustandes in vielkristallinen Werkstoffen. Der Grundgedanke der Methode besteht darin, die Eindringtiefe {tau} der Roentgenstrahlung in den Werkstoff durch schrittweise Drehung der Probe um den Streuvektor g{sub {theta}}{sub {psi}} zu variieren. Damit koennen Tiefenprofile der Netzebenenabstaende d(hkl) fuer fest vorgegebene Azimut- und Neigungswinkel {theta} und {psi} des Streuvektors im Probensystem ermittelt

    rztliche Handeln essentiell sind. Im Juli 2005 begann der Aufbau eines interdisziplinären Trainingszentrums an der medizinischen Fakultät der Rheinisch-Westfälischen Technischen Hochschule Aachen, genannt „AIXTRA“ (Aachener interdisziplinäres Trainingszentrum für medizinische Ausbildung. Sach- und Personalmittel zur strukturellen und methodischen Etablierung des sog. Skillslab wurden zunächst aus einem fakultätsinternen Förderprogramm für innovative Lehrkonzepte, im weiteren Verlauf zum überwiegenden Teil aus Studienbeiträgen zur Verfügung gestellt. Methodik: Im Vorfeld wurden die folgenden notwendigen Schritte eines Projektmanagements erarbeitet: Entwicklung eines methodischen Rahmenkonzeptes, Definition der inhaltlichen Ausrichtung und Auswahl der Fertigkeiten, Schaffung infrastruktureller Voraussetzungen (Räume, Unterrichtsmaterial, Personal, Konzeptionierung von „Pilot-Kursen“, Realisierung repräsentabler „Meilensteine“, Gewinnung weiterer potenter fakultätsinterner Partner für zukünftigen Ausbau, Implementierung Kursangebot in laufende Curricula, Evaluation der Einzel-Kurse und des Gesamtkonzeptes. Ergebnis: Die vorab festgelegten Teilschritte des Projektmanagements erwiesen sich als zielführend bei der Umsetzung des Projektes. Eine „Minimal“-Infrastruktur in Bezug auf räumliche und personelle Ressourcen wurde etabliert, das methodische Konzept umgesetzt. Im Sommersemester 2008 besuchten insgesamt 709 Teilnehmer in 133 fakultativen Kursen und ca. 900 Studierende in curricularen Veranstaltungen das Skillslab „AIXTRA“. Schlussfolgerung: Nach drei Jahren wird im interdisziplinären Trainingszentrum eine breite Palette von Kursen angeboten, in denen Studierende praktische Fertigkeiten erlernen, trainieren und optimieren können. Die bisher gewonnenen Erfahrungen in der Konzeptionierung und Organisation des Kursprogramms sind essentielle Grundlage für den weiteren strukturellen und methodisch-didaktischen Ausbau des Skillslab.

    Internationally, probabilistic safety analyses (PSA) are applied in many cases and for different purposes. Primarily, the qualitative results of PSA are of interest for assessing the balancedness of the design of nuclear power plants and for identifying plant vulnerabilities to severe accidents. As compared to the comprehensive development of PSA methods, quantitative probabilistic safety criteria (QPS) have not reached the same level. In this report, available quantitative probabilistic safety criteria for licensing and operation of nuclear facilities are compiled for a number of countries, in first place for OECD member states. Most of the countries consider those criteria only as not legally binding safety targets or even do not apply them at all. The Netherlands and the United Kingdom are exceptions, they require corresponding demonstration of compliance with QPS in the licensing procedure. Regarding the numerical values - whether binding or not - the following trend can be observed which is consistent with IAEA-Safety Series No. 75-INSAG-3. Plants in operation should not have core damage frequencies above 10{sup -4}/a, for licensing of new plants a core damage frequency of 10{sup -5}/a is considered as an upper bound and the frequency of large radioactive release should be below 10{sup -6}/a. The United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission has recently issued a policy statement on the enhanced use of PSA in its future decisions. Though quantitative probabilistic safety criteria are not emphasized in this policy statement, it contributes to strengthen the importance of PSA in the regulatory process with respect to deterministic safety assessments. (orig.) [Deutsch] Die probabilistische Sicherheitsanalyse (PSA) wird international intensiv angewendet. Genutzt werden in erster Linie die qualitativen Resultate im Hinblick auf die Beurteilung der Ausgewogenheit der Auslegung von Kernkraftwerken und der Identifizierung moeglicher Schwachstellen.

Discussed are the qualitative sustainability measurement, and connections to the methodological basis of development assessment and the essence of evaluating sustainability. At first the sustainability definition is tackled, followed by an analysis of the nature of sustainability. The third section highlights the requirements for decision making that guarantees sustainability

    This report completes the documentation for the research project 'High Pressure Compressor - Preliminary Design as Basis for the Development of an Efficient and Environmentally Friendly Core Engine' which was funded by the Ministry of Economics of State Brandenburg. The objective of the project is to deliver a preliminary compressor aerodynamic design as well as design studies for an efficient, weight and cost improved compressor. The increase of stage pressure ratio and improved efficiency, whilst stage and blade count is reduced, has been achieved by advanced 3D methods. Compressor stability also at off-design conditions will be retained. The mechanical design focusses on a cost and weight optimised rotor not only for a conventional bladed discs but also for Blish stages. Various options for split casings have been developed and assessed. Alternative vortex reducers based on different design options have been carried out. The results from this project will be directly exploited in a follow-on project for a new nine-stage compressor. The new high pressure compressor will be a key element of the future two-shaft-engine architecture. (orig.)

    The last few years have seen rapid developments in the field of starch use in the polymer sector. Destructured starch, with suitable modifiers, can be processed into foils and formed parts by thermoplastic methods. Their properties during processing and use differ from those of conventional plastics, however. The main reason for this is the structural hydrophilia of starch and starch products, which reduces their technical applications. In this project, the fundamentals for starch-based materials with better material characteristics are to be developed in order to improve the chances of these economically and ecologically attractive materials on the market and enhance their range of applications. [German] In den letzten Jahren haben die Entwicklungen auf dem Gebiet des Staerkeeinsatzes im Polymersektor erhebliche Fortschritte gemacht. Destrukturierte Staerken lassen sich heute unter Zusatz geeigneter Modifikatoren nach bekannten Formgebungsverfahren thermoplastisch zu Folien und Formkoerpern verarbeiten. Das Eigenschaftsprofil der staerkebasierenden Materialien entspricht jedoch nicht demjenigen konventioneller Kunststoffe. Dies betrifft sowohl die Gebrauchs- als auch die Verarbeitungseigenschaften. Wesentliche Ursache dieser fuer viele Applikationen unzureichenden Materialeigenschaften ist die strukturbedingte Hydrophilie von Staerken und daraus hergestellten Produkten. Diese Hydrophilie fuehrt dann zu einer hohen Feuchtigkeitsempfindlichkeit von staerkebasierenden Materialien, die ihre Einsatzmoeglichkeiten in technischen Bereichen erheblich einschraenkt. In dem durch die Fachagentur Nachwachsende Rohstoffe gefoerderten Verbundprojekt ''Entwicklung bioabbaubarer Werkstoffe auf der Basis nachwachsender Rohstoffe, Staerke und Pflanzenoel'' sollen deshalb Grundlagen fuer staerkebasierende Werkstoffe bzw. Werkstoffkomponenten mit deutlich verbesserten Materialeigenschaften erarbeitet werden, um die Chancen dieser wirtschaftlich und oekologisch

    The main topics of this thesis are the development and characterization of La/B{sub 4}C multilayer systems. For this these materials were evaluated and characterized for the applied electron-beam evaporation. For the monitoring of the evaporation process two separate in-situ layer thicknesses were available. For periodic multilayer systems the X-ray reflectometry used for Mo/Si multilayers was accepted. Because of the change from Mo/Si on La/B{sub 4}C the driving of the evaporation process had to be material-conditionedly further developed and optimized. For the fabrication of aperiodic La/B{sub 4}C multilayer systems additionally an in-situ ellipsometer was taken into operation. Furthermore a decreasement of the interface roughnesses and by this following increasement of the reflectivities of La/B{sub 4}C multilayers by polishing of the single layers with accelerated ions during the fabrication shall be studied. The fabricated multilayers are characterized and evaluated concerning roughnesses, reflectivities, ans spectral band width. [German] Im Mittelpunkt dieser Arbeit stehen die Entwicklung und Charakterisierung von La/B{sub 4}C-Multischichtsystemen. Dazu wurden diese Materialien fuer die verwendete Elektronenstrahlverdampfung evaluiert und charakterisiert. Fuer die Ueberwachung des Aufdampfprozesses standen zwei separate In-situ Schichtdickenkontrollen zur Verfuegung. Fuer periodische Multischichtsysteme wurde die fuer Mo/Si-Multischichten genutzte Roentgenreflektometrie uebernommen. Aufgrund des Wechsels von Mo/Si auf La/B{sub 4}C musste materialbedingt die Steuerung des Verdampfungsprozesses weiterentwickelt und optimiert werden. Fuer die Herstellung aperiodischer La/B{sub 4}C-Multischichtsysteme wurde zusaetzlich ein In-situ Ellipsometer in Betrieb genommen. Des Weiteren soll eine Senkung der Grenzflaechenrauigkeiten und damit einhergehende Erhoehung der Reflektivitaeten von La/B{sub 4}C-Multischichten durch das Polieren mit beschleunigten Ionen der

    Aim of the was the development of a prototype of a 3 axis HTc SQUID magnetometer for the geophysical exploration. The prototype was tested during the project in Germany and in China. Metronix task was the supervision of the development with the direction that the sensor can be used for field measurements and that the manufacturing costs will be acceptable. For magnetotelluric measurements (MT/CSAMT) further development is required to enhance the drift and noise properties of the sensor. The advantages in the geophysical TEM exploration are: greater sounding depth and good conductors (ore bodies) can be penetrated completely; the thickness of the resource can be estimated this way. At the same time the measuring time can be reduced tremendously because of the better signal to noise ratio. The productivity of the measuring campaign increases. If due to further developments coils systems can be replaced in total by the SQUID, SQUID systems will dominate the TEM market. (orig.) [German] Ziel des Projektes war es, einen Prototyp eines 3-achsigen HTc SQUIDS zur Verfuegung zu haben, welcher die Anforderungen fuer geophysikalische Messungen erfuellt. Dieser Prototyp wurde im Laufe des Projektes in Deutschland und China getestet. Die Rolle der Firma Metronix in diesem Projekt war die Einflussnahme auf die Entwicklung in der Form, dass zum einen die aus der Feldmesstechnik resultierenden Anforderungen beruecksichtigt werden, zum anderen auf eine spaetere kostenguenstige Herstellung geachtet wird. Bei magnetotellurischen Messungen (MT/CSAMT) besteht weiterer Bedarf an Verbesserungen hinsichtlich der Drift- und Rauscheigenschaften des Sensors. Fuer die geophysikalische Exploration in der TEM ergeben sich folgende Vorteile: die Erkundungstiefe ist groesser und gute Leiter (Erzkoerper) koennen vollstaendig durchteuft werden; damit kann die Maechtigkeit des Vorkommens bestimmt werden. Gleichzeitig kann auf Grund des besseren Signal / Rauschverhaeltnisses die Messzeit deutlich

    A new technology for fast, large-surface deposition of high-quality semiconducting thin films for PV systems. The new technology, CSVT (close-space vapour transport), is based on a combination of VPE (vapour phase epitaxy) in open systems and CVT (chemical vapour phase transport) in closed systems. The two-source CVD experiments with two different transport gases, i.e. Cu{sub 2}Se with iodine and Ga{sub 2}Se{sub 3} with HCl, enabled controlled variation of the Cu:Ga ratio in the gaseous phase. The solar cells produced had efficiencies of more than 4%. The best solar cell produced had an efficiency of 4.8% and an open terminal voltage of 863 mV. [German] Ziel des Vorhabens war die Entwicklung einer neuen Technologie zur schnellen, grossflaechigen Abscheidung von qualitativ hochstehenden, halbleitenden Duennschichten fuer die Photovoltaik. Das Konzept des neuen Abscheideverfahrens, CSVT (close-space vapour transport) im offenen System, basiert auf einer Kombination der etablierten Methoden VPE (vapour phase epitaxy) im offenen und CVT (chemical vapour phase transport) im geschlossenen System. Die 2-Quellen-CVD-Experimente mit den zwei unterschiedlichen Transportgasen (Cu{sub 2}Se mit Iod; Ga{sub 2}Se{sub 3} mit HCl) ermoeglichten die kontrollierte Variation des Cu:Ga=Verhaeltnisses in der Gasphase. Bisher konnten so Solarzellen mit Wirkungsgraden ueber 4% hergestellt werden, wobei bei der bisher besten Solarzelle ein Wirkungsgrad von {eta}=4.8% und eine offene Klemmenspannung von V{sub oc}=863 mV erreicht wurde.

    The impacts of a long-term change from our present industrial society to an economy based on circular flow concepts approaching the characteristics of the concept of sustainable development have to be taken into account in macroeconomic modelling as well, or else there is no appropriate basis for examination and assessment of the effects of various resource management policy options on the economy. One possible methodological approach is to link single, process-oriented models of sectors of the industry with input-output models and macroeconomic models. This study presents an approach using as an example the pulp and paper industry of Germany, covering the period from 1995 until 2020. The results are found to improve the methodological perspective between the process models and the MIS model of the family of IKARUS models and also offer an additional advantage in that they may serve as a data source for other input-output models and macroeconomic modelling. (orig./CB) [German] Diese Einfluesse eines langfristigen Wandels von einer heutigen Industriegesellschaft zu einer Kreislaufwirtschaft mit Merkmalen einer nachhaltigen Entwicklung muessen sich auch in den Strukturen makrooekonomischer Modelle wiederfinden, um die Auswirkungen verschiedener ressourcenpolitischer Optionen auf die Wirtschaft angemessen pruefen zu koennen. Ein methodischer Weg zu dieser Aufgabe ist die Verknuepfung einzelner prozessorientierter Branchenmodelle mit Input-Output-Modellen und makrooekonomischen Modellen. Der vorliegende Bericht will hierzu einen Baustein am Beispiel der Zellstoff- und Papierindustrie fuer die Bundesrepublik Deutschland fuer die Zeitperiode 1995-2020 beitragen. Diese Ergebnisse verbessern nicht nur die methodische Perspektive zwischen den Prozessmodellen und dem MIS-Modell der IKARUS-Modellfamilie, sondern koennen als Erfahrungs- und Datenquelle fuer andere Input-Output-Modelle und makrooekonomische Modelle genutzt werden.

    Ethanol is the most used biofuel in the world. It is part of the European biofuel strategy, which is intended to preserve finite fossil resources, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and strengthen European agriculture. In addition to its traditional use in E5 fuel, ethanol most recently features in new fuels for petrol engines in Europe: as E10 as an expansion of the already existing concept of ethanol blends, such as in E5, or as ethanol fuel E85, a blend made up primarily of ethanol. There is already extensive international experience for both types of fuel for example in the USA or Brazil. The use of ethanol as a biofuel is linked to sustainability criteria in Europe which must be proven through a certification scheme. In addition to ethanol, the integrated production process also provides vegetable protein which is used in food as well as in animal feed and therefore provides the quality products of processed plants used for sustainable energy and in animal and human food. Ethanol has an effect on the vapour pressure, boiling behaviour and octane number of the fuel blend. Adjusting the blend stock petrol to fulfil the quality requirements of the final fuel is therefore necessary. Increasing the antiknock properties, increasing the heat of evaporation of the fuel using ethanol and the positive effects this has on the combustion efficiency of the petrol engine are particularly important. Investigations on cars or engines that were specifically designed for fuel with a higher ethanol content show significant improvements in using the energy from the fuel and the potential to reduce carbon dioxide emissions if fuels containing ethanol are used. The perspective based purely on an energy equivalent replacement of fossil fuels with ethanol is therefore misleading. Ethanol can also contribute to increasing the energy efficiency of petrol engines as well as being a replacement source of energy. (orig.)

    This case study on nanotechnology with a focus on sustainable water management was done within the scope of the research project ''Future markets - innovative environmental policy in important fields of action''. Nanotechnology is a broad cross-cutting technology with a multitude of process and technology platforms. Nanotechnologies can contribute to preventing water pollution (e. g. by substituting water polluting processes) or removing this (e. g. nanomaterials/ membranes in wastewater treatment) and can be used to monitor water quality (e. g. nanosensors). Water plays a key role in nutrition and health, in agriculture (irrigation) and as a solvent in industrial processes. A globally sustainable supply of drinking water and industrial water is seen as one of the main challenges of the next decades. The world water supply market is predicted to be more than 400 billion US-$ (2010), in which membrane technologies will play a key role. The rapid development of nanotechnologies is reflected in the constant growth in the number of nanotechnology patents and publications. New types of filtration membranes and nanomaterials for the catalytic, adsorptive or magnetic-separation purification of wastewater constitute an important segment; some marketable products have already been developed in this field. In the long term, convergence in the fields of electronics, biotechnology, nanotechnology and microsystems will offer new perspectives and applications, in sustainable water management as well. Germany has high technological competence in membrane and nanofiltration technology, mostly based on the strength of its basic research, which can serve as a good basis from which to tap foreign markets. The USA is the leader in the field of nanotechnology and in water management applications. Starting points for policy measures are the initiation and implementation of innovationsupporting measures for the further development of these technologies -particularly with regard to applications preventing water polluting processes - as well as tapping international markets. Developing applications and processes which are ready to go into mass production should receive particular support so that innovative methods from research make internationally marketable products possible or accelerate them. Strict environmental standards in Germany and the EU - which may then be adopted by other countries - improve the prospects for exports. (orig.)

    Full Text Available [english] Aims: Due to the discontinuation of the 18-month practical period called "Arzt im Praktikum" students need to be fit for their job as hospital doctors earlier than they used to which is supposed to be achieved by a change of the German curriculum towards a more practical approach. After a needs assessment by focus groups a training scheme for students in their final year matching these needs was being established and assessed at the Medical Hospital Heidelberg. Methods: We established a training scheme composed of four units: (1 Medical didactics, (2 time-management and training on ward rounds, (3 and difficult communication situations (4 on ward. These trainings were attended by 21 final year students from May to July 2005. Outcomes: The students were highly satisfied with the individual training units (values ranging from 1.56±0.81 to 1.93±1.16 / 1= "excellent", 6= "insufficient". The qualitative analysis of the questionnaire comments also shows a consistently positive response. Especially the communication and ward round trainings were seen as being "close to reality", and it was considered very "sensible" training to practise difficult situations in a simulated setting at first. Conclusion: For the final year students, an important training segment for future medical work, options for clinical-practical training schemes, adequate in difficulty and setting, were established. This is a first step towards a curriculum for the final year.

    Subject of the current project ''3605S04477 - Entwicklung einer ''Job-Exposure-Matrix'' fuer Tieraerzte zur Abschaetzung der Exposition an ionisierender Strahlung bei der Diagnose mit Hilfe von Roentgengeraeten in der tieraerztlichen Praxis'' is the analysis of the radiation exposure of medical staff due to diagnostic x-ray examinations in veterinary medicine. In detail the radiation exposure of the medical staff will be first measured and next will be analysed and transformed into a data structure, which allows an easy estimation of the radiation exposure of the medical staff due to the future execution of diagnostic x-ray examination. The measurements, this data structure (called ''Job-Exposure-Matrix'') is based on, will be taken primarily during examinations performed at two veterinary clinics of the ''Freie Universitaet Berlin (FU Berlin)'', which are linked to the project. In addition some further measurements are taken at four veterinary clinics in Germany. Finally, for some examinations measurements are performed using phantoms set up of dead animals. Due to the shielding of the x-ray protective clothing and the resulting very low values the doses are measured in front of the protective clothing. Primarily, electronic personal dosemeters are used, complemented by thermoluminescence dosemeters and an ionisation radiation chamber. The measurement and the related analysis show, that the exposure of the medical staff due to the scattered Roentgen beam during a single x-ray examination is low. However, a high frequency of examinations during a year may result in no more marginal exposure which in addition might exceed the relevant dose limits. Thus, the measurements also emphasize the importance of radiation shielding even in case of low exposure due to a single x-ray examination.

    Aim of this project was the development of high temperature construction materials for systems to the environmentally friendly power transformation based on the NiAl-Alloy IP 75, as well as the production methods for thin walled profile parts by Metal-Injection-Moulding (MIM). Starting from the powder specification a method should be worked out to sinter injected parts according to the requested properties, reached densities, shrinkage and behaviour. The advantages of NiAl-Alloys lie in the high melting point as well as the oxidation resistance, caused by passivating oxide layer. From production point of view these characteristic represent obstacles which had to be overcome. Further advantages of the materials lie in the chemical resistance and in the good mechanical properties at high temperature which permits special application under extreme conditions e.g. Stirling engine. Components of this materials were produced which a density of ca. 99% of the theoretical density. A fundamental feasibility regarding the production of components on NiAl-base by the MIM-Technology is given. (orig.) [German] Ziel dieses Projektes war die Entwicklung von Hochtemperaturkonstruktionswerkstoffen fuer Systeme zur umweltfreundlichen Energieumwandlung aus NiAl-Basislegierung IP 75 (45 at.% Ni, 45 at.% Al, 7,5 at.% Cr und 2,5 at.% Ta) sowie deren Herstellungsmethoden fuer duennwandige (bis zu groesseren Abmessungen) Profilteile mittels der Metal-Injection-Moulding-Technologie (MIM). Ausgehend von der Pulverspezifikation sollte im Projekt ein Verfahren erarbeitet werden, um spritzgegossene Bauteile den Anforderungen entsprechend zu sintern. Hierbei ging es vor allen Dingen um Werkstoffeigenschaften, erreichte Dichten und Schwinungsverhalten. Die anwendungstechnischen Vorteile des NiAl-Systems liegen in dem hohen Schmelzpunkt sowie dem stabilen Oxidationsverhalten, das seinerseits durch die Bildung stabiler Oxidschichten begruendet ist. Aus Fertigungsgesichtspunkten jedoch stellten

    The PVS simulation program for Windows was to be extended to the development and simulation of PV-supported equipment and small systems. The following new functions were to be integrated: a) Simulation and dimensioning of indoor power supply of systems with different light sources and independent outdoor systems. b)Integration of small wind generators in the simulation and dimensioning of isolated autonomous systems, including wind data and a component database for small wind turbines; c) Differentiation of the PVS battery model for different battery types (lead, Ni/Cd, Li etc.), optimized operating strategies and flexible dimensioning including an additional component database for battery types; d) Extensive cost analysis for PV-supported appliances and small systems, from investments to consumption, operation and maintenance. This will facilitate investment decisions and help systems of this type along in the market. All program components were designed for high flexibility. Users should be able to vary as many parameters as possible, and to generate and modify their own records. The current project focused on the user interface, i.e. input, data processing, and output. Parallel to this, the Fraunhofer ISE Institute worked on modifications of the computer hardware. [German] Das Projekt zielte auf eine Erweiterung des Simulationsprogramms PVS fuer Windows zur Entwicklung und Simulation von PV-versorgten Geraeten und Kleinsystemen hin. Das Entwicklungsprodukt sollte zusaetzlich zu den bisherigen Funktionen insbesondere Folgendes leisten: (a) Simulation und Dimensionierung der Energieversorgung von Geraeten im Indoor-Bereich, wobei unterschiedliche Lichtquellen verarbeitet werden muessen, sowie von sonstigen netzfreien (Outdoor-) Kleinsystemen. (b) Einbindung kleiner Windgeneratoren in die Simulation und Dimensionierung von netzfernen Systemen (Insel-Anlagen), einschliesslich Bereitstellung der Wind-Daten und einer zusaetzlichen Komponenten-Datenbank fuer kleine

Als Zugang wurde die Technologie der interaktiven Whitebords gewählt, um gegenwärtige Entwicklungen der Digitalisierung von Unterrichtsräumen zu thematisieren und dabei ausgewählte Aspekte von Medienkompetenz zu fördern. In dem Projekt haben verschiedene Einrichtungen der Universität und der Lehrerbildung kooperiert, um eine Multiplikator/-innenschulung für Studierende zu erarbeiten und zu etablieren. Es wurde eine 28-stündige Qualifizierungsreihe entwickelt, die sich aus modularisierten Workshops zur medientechnischen und -didaktischen Auseinandersetzung mit interaktiven Whiteboards, Elementen der Tutor/-innenausbildung sowie der Erarbeitung eines eigenen Unterrichtsentwurfes zusammensetzt. In dem Artikel werden die entwickelten Module vorgestellt und bewertet, inwieweit sie den von Herzig, Aßmann und Klar (2014 formulierten Zielvorstellungen zur Medienkompetenzförderung für das Lehramtsstudium entsprechen. Im Abgleich mit diesen Zielvorstellungen werden Entwicklungspotentiale des Konzepts identifiziert. Darüber hinaus fliessen Ergebnisse der praktischen Durchführung in Optimierungsvorschläge zur Steigerung der Nachhaltigkeit und Qualität der didaktischen Kompetenzen zum Einsatz von interaktiven Whiteboards in der Lehramtsausbildung – und darüber vermittelt im Schulunterricht – ein.

  15. BOOK REVIEW: Development of Solar Research - Entwicklung der Sonnenforschung

    Science.gov (United States)

    Sterken, C.; Wittmann, A. D.; Wolfschmidt, G.; Duerbeck, H. W.

    2006-12-01

    This publication contains the Proceedings of a Colloquium on the development of solar research, supplemented with a number of papers which were written especially for this book. The volume contains 14 papers dealing with archeo-astronomy related to the Sun, solar cults, and (mainly) solar research. Ten papers are written in English, the remaining four are in German, but all papers have a quite extensive Abstract in both languages. The volume closes with a comprehensive Name Index. I found this book most pleasant to read with many useful illustrations (more than 120 photographs and reproductions of which about 100 cover truly historic material, quite often from authors' private archives). The first three papers (by A. Haenel, W. Schlosser and R. Hansen) deal with very ancient information: megalithic tombs as solar observatories, the Nebra sky-disk (showing Sun, Moon, Pleiades and other stars), and solar cults. These papers (adding up to about 90 pages) are not only descriptive, but also contain an analysis based on quantitative facts. One paper deals with letters exchanged by astronomers serving as data sources for the counting of sunspots during the Maunder minimum. More specifically, several hundreds of letters by Gottfried Kirch (1639-1710) are being edited and analysed by Klaus-Dieter Herbst. Medieval solar-eclipse maps with totality paths are reproduced in an interesting paper by Robert van Gent, who presents eclipse cartography of as early as 1699 - at least 15 years prior to the generally accepted first such map by Edmond Halley. R. Schielicke's paper on the 1851 Koenigsberg daguerrotype photograph of the solar corona gives interesting details on the history of daguerrotype photography, and has a number of very useful basic references, including OCR-based transcripts of a 1851-dated document describing an early corona daguerrotype (in German). Three consecutive papers (one by H.W. Duerbeck, followed by papers by G. Wolfschmidt and M.P. Seiler) not only reveal scientific history, but also crucial information on how governmental sponsorship, from the 1860s till the end of WW II, modulated the development of solar research. This paper reveals lots of cross-references on scientists and government agents, and also offers insight on the interplay between political actors and scientific researchers. The last paper covers very dense time lines, and also vividly illustrates the military value of basic fundamental research - that is, the forecast of radio propagation disturbances caused by solar flares. This element is also dealt with in the subsequent paper by Hubertus Wohl, on the spectroheliogram archives of the Fraunhofer (now Kiepenheuer) Institute. Accounts of pioneering episodes are given in Axel Wittmann's paper on site testing at La Palma in the early seventies, as well as in the subsequent paper on solar research with stratospheric balloons (by Manuel Vazquez and Axel Wittmann). These authors sketch a very concise but detailed history of civil ballooning, and illustrate this with several images from private archives. Alltogether, this book is well-edited, and offers lots of historical facts for the money.

    2007-01-01

    Full Text Available In this article I am investigating scientific theories and schemata of classification that are eliminating time and contingency in their explanations in favour of laws and classifications that are timelessly valid. The function of timeless validity is to guarantee legitimacy for a discipline and its methods. This is shown in several aspects:1. Legal encyclopedias and the concept of natural history 2. Myths of origin and bodies of law 3. Paradigmatic validity of classifications 4. Darwin’s theory of evolution 5. The syllogism in jurisprudence 6. Mechanistic explanations in biology. By eliminating time and contingencies in explanations researchers try to escape history and to reduce the human body to its physiology. I try to show that this has also consequences for law as a discipline and that there is and has been a parallel development in biology, medicine and law.

  4. Bewegung bei Vorschulkindern: Empfehlungen und Wirklichkeit

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Graf C

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available Bewegung und körperliche Aktivität spielen insbesondere in der ganzheitlichen Entwicklung von Kindern eine wichtige Rolle. Heutzutage ist der kindliche Lebensstil allerdings von Bewegungsarmut und der Nutzung audiovisueller Medien geprägt. Bereits Kindergartenkinder sind überwiegend inaktiv bzw. verbringen viel Zeit mit Fernsehen. Eine mögliche Folge von mangelnder Bewegung können motorische Defizite darstellen. In eigenen Kollektiven schneiden mindestens 45 % der Kinder unterdurchschnittlich in den motorischen Hauptbeanspruchungsformen Koordination, Kraft und Schnelligkeit ab. Inwiefern sich dies langfristig auf die gesunde körperliche, aber auch geistige und emotionale Entwicklung der Kinder auswirkt, kann derzeit noch nicht beantwortet werden. Sicherlich unterstützen aber motorische Defizite ein Meidungsverhalten und den weiteren Rückzug aus der Bewegung sowie die Entwicklung von Übergewicht und Adipositas. Allgemein wird für Kinder in dieser Altersgruppe mindestens 2 Stunden tägliche Bewegungszeit sowie eine Reduktion der Fernsehzeit auf maximal 30 Min. empfohlen. Um diese Ziele zu erreichen bzw. zu unterstützen, sind effektive präventive Programme in den verschiedenen Lebensräumen der Kinder, Kindergärten, aber auch pädiatrischen Praxen etc. vonnöten. Bislang ist kein gesundheitsförderlicher/ präventiver „Königsweg“ bekannt, insbesondere nicht für Risikofamilien mit einem geringen sozioökonomischen Status und/oder Migrationshintergrund. Wichtig erscheinen aber die Förderung der intersektoralen Zusammenarbeit und ein Schwerpunkt in der Planung und Umsetzung auf Qualitätssicherung und Projektmanagement, um auch nachhaltig die Gesundheit der Kinder zu unterstützen.

    The fabrication of uranium-plutonium oxide fuel started in Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe and at ALKEM company to begin for the criticality experiments in the SNEAK reactor and subsequently for stationary fuel pin irradiations in the FR2, BR2, DFR, Rapsodie, Phenix and KNK II reactors. The production methods comprised first the mechanical blending of UO2 and PuO2 followed by direct pressing and sintering of the pellets, later the advanced methods such as optimized comilling and ammonium uranyl plutonyl coprecititation. The fabrication of pellets was described in the main, further the alternative fuel pin manufacturing processes by vibrational compaction and hot-impact densification were discussed. The first capsule and pin irradiations in the FR2 and BR2 reactors contributed to the assessment of the maximum operation parameters within the fuel pin development such as linear heat rating, cladding temperature and burnup. Subsequently, small-bundle and largebundle irradiations were made in fast reactors in cooperation with Interatom company in order to verify the specifications for the commercial fast reactor SNR 300. Milestones were the maximum burnup of 175 GWd/t metal, corresponding 18.6 % of the heavy atoms, obtained in one of the KNK II fuel pin assemblies, and the displacement rates in the cladding materials of 140 dpa NRT attained in the Phenix reactor. Higher implications gained later the stationary irradiations of defected mixed-oxide pins, the mild fuel pin transient operations, the local blockage experiments and the severe hypothetic accidents in the respective Siloe, HFR, BR2 and CABRI reactors. These experiments were made solely in international partnership. Further activities were the chemical analyses of solid residues and coprecipitations of irradiated mixed-oxide fuels in the head-end of the reprocessing. All these actions were coordinated in the then fast breeder project. Furthermore, irradiated fuels and fuel pins of other reactor types were

    In the research project on the ''Review and development of safety-related assessments of disposal facilities with negligible heat generation; development and provision of the necessary set of tools, using the example of the Konrad disposal facility'' (Untersuchung und Entwicklung von sicherheitstechnischen Bewertungen fuer Endlager fuer Abfaelle mit vernachlaessigbarer Waermeentwicklung; Entwicklung und Bereitstellung des notwendigen Instrumentariums am Beispiel des Endlagers Konrad - Forschungsvorhaben 3612R03410), the state of the art in science and technology of the safety-related assessments and sets of tools for building a safety case was examined. The reports pertaining to the two work packages described the further development of the methodology for accident analyses (WP 1) and of building a safety case (WP 2); also, comparisons were drawn on a national and international scale with the methods applied in the licensing procedure of the Konrad disposal facility. As part of the project, the report of Work Package 1 depicts the methodology of the operating safety analysis in order to control malfunctions and incidents (accident analysis) using the example of the Konrad mine accident analysis. Set of criteria in this connection is the state-of-the-art international and national comprehensive body of legislation identifying the incident requirements. In extracts complementary safety analysis procedures of other countries are presented where applicable. It becomes apparent, that the majority of the investigated countries use a deterministic accident analyses to identify incidents. Here, common international practice is to com-plement the deterministic accident analysis by a probabilistic analysis. This procedure acts on the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) terms of reference using both deterministic and probabilistic methods for the determination of facility hazard potentials. Based on the Konrad mine method, aspects of incident

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

    Conflicting constellations and the resulting risk of conflict over raw materials are highly complex. This report investigates approaches of various groups of actors and various fields of politics to minimize this risk, with the intention of identifying and analyzing relevant and innovative approaches and to outline their potential and shortcomings in solving risky constellations. The approaches presented here were selected for their relevance and actuality. This includes, on the one hand, approaches that investigate violent conflicts in the producer countries. On the other hand, approaches are considered that attempt to influence the risk of conflict by governmental or private environmental, climate and resources policies. (orig./RHM)

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

    The term industrial symbiosis is used when traditionally separate companies and industries work together in a collective approach to physically exchange materials, energy, water and by-products with a mutual competitive advantage. Aim of the European project ''UBIS - Urban Baltic Industrial Symbiosis'' (INTERREG South-Baltic Programme) is to use biogenic resources as well as waste and residues sustainable in industrial symbiosis and to reduce emissions at the same time. Even if a lot has already been achieved in this area, there are still many unused material flows and there are possibilities to use them even more efficiently. In the project existing collaborations will be investigated as well as new ones identified and evaluated. This article introduces the UBIS project and provides an insight into the subject of industrial symbiosis as well examples described.

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

    The project CuRa: (German acronym for Cooperation for Environmentally Friendly Exchange of Resources) aimed to design elements to put into practice the model of sustainable development. The focus was on the participation of industry and business on a regional level and two model regions were chosen for the analysis of case studies. It was intended to give impulses for regional material flow networks between companies, for example by bundling similar material flows to achieve a better profitability and by one-to-one cooperation between companies, one of them using the waste of the partner as raw material. In addition, the potential for reducing material throughput using modern information technology was investigated in a case study. A set of theses derived from institutional theory was verified on the basis of the empirical results. Useful for the development and the stabilization of networks are, among others, expected economic benefits for the partners, common socio-cultural values and traditions, and using existing institutional arrangements as a basis. Different forms of market and policy failures were identified as obstacles, e.g. the established system of waste disposal services, the focus among the responsible actors on compliance with existing rules, and different regulatory obstacles. Nevertheless, in spite of the insufficient number of successful examples and demonstration projects, a shift in orientation from focusing on mere waste disposal towards a closed loop recycling economy and even towards sustainable development was identified within the commercial sector.

    - and p-type emitters have been fabricated. After a very short development time conversion efficiencies have been obtained ({eta}{sub max} = 15.2%) which are reported for PECVD emitters. (orig.) [German] Zwei neue Anlagen zur vollstaendigen bzw. grossflaechigen Abscheidung von a-Si:H basierenden Solarzellen mit der sog. 'Hot-Wire (HW)' CVD wurden aufgebaut. Die Abscheidebedingungen fuer geeignete n- und p-dotierte a-Si:H- bzw. {mu}c-Si:H-Schichten wurden ermittelt. Weltweit wurde erstmals eine a-Si:H-pin-Zelle vollstaendig mit der HWCVD-Methode hergestellt, ein Anfangswirkungsgrad von {eta}{sub initial} = 8,9% wurde erreicht. Nach Entwicklung eines p/n-Tunnel- bzw. Rekombinationsueberganges ist es weltweit ebenfalls erstmals gelungen, pin-pin-Tandemstrukturen mit a-Si:H-Absorbern vollstaendig mit der HWCVD-Methode abzuscheiden. Nach Teilalterung wurden noch Wirkungsgrade von {eta}{approx}7% ermittelt. Generell ist die Stabilitaet der all-HWCVD-Zellen noch unbedriedigend, was auf strukturell instabile p-Schichten zurueckgefuehrt werden konnte. Erste nip-Solarzellen auf Edelstahlsubstraten wurden ebenfalls vollstaendig mit der HWCVD praepariert ({eta}{sub initial}>6%). Der Einbau von {mu}c-Si:H-Absorberschichten die mit HWCVD bzw. ECWR-PECVD hergestellt wurden, in pin-Solarzellen war bisher wenig erfolgreich. In einer Anlage zur grossflaechigen HWCVD-Abscheidung wurden a-Si:H-Schichten mit guter Qualitaet und einer Schichtdickenuniformitaet von {delta}d = {+-}2,5% hergestellt. Fuer sog. 'Huepfzellen', nur die i-Schicht wurde in der Anlage abgeschieden, wurden auch sehr uniforme Anfangswirkungsgrade {eta}{sub initial}=6,1{+-}0,2% fuer kleinflaechige Zellen auf einer Flaeche von 20 x 20 cm{sup 2} erreicht. Diese Ergebnisse koennen als 'proof of concept' fuer die grossflaechige HWCVD-Abscheidung fuer a-Si:H-basierende Solarzellen betrachtet werden.

    Nuclear structure data pertaining to {sup 225}Fr have been evaluated, and incorporated into the ENSDF data file. This evaluation includes literature available by 16 May 2005 and supersedes the previous publication for {sup 225}Fr (Y.A. Akovali, ''Nuclear Data Sheets 60, 617 (1990)'', literature cutoff date 1 June 1989). Data have been incorporated from the following references: 1987Co19, 1997BuO3 and 2003AuO3.

  19. Unimodular mimetic F(R) inflation

    Science.gov (United States)

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

    2016-07-01

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

  20. Wormhole solutions in f(R) gravity satisfying energy conditions

    2016-10-01

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

    2017-08-15

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

  17. FR Cnc revisited: photometry, polarimetry and spectroscopy

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

    The demand for both energetic and non-energetic raw materials has been increasing continuously during the past few decades. Especially during the last few years, the threat of structural shortages of supply or availability came into focus. The discussion is highly controversial, especially in the case of petroleum. This sub-report presents an analysis of the supply situation of energetic and non-energetic raw materials, i.e. petroleum, coal and nuclear fuels on the one hand as well as iron and steel, chromium, nickel, cobalt, aluminium, magnesium, copper, platinum and platinum metals, industrial minerals, boron salts, phosphate, zirconium and zirconium oxide on the other hand. It is important to discuss also regional availability patterns in order to arrive at a regional picture of potential supply risks and resulting conflicts over raw materials as this is the best way to assess the danger of impending conflicts.

    The worldwide increasing demand for cheese and dairy products leads to a steady increase of whey production. Today, whey is no more considered as waste, but serves as source for materials like lactose and proteins. At the end of this process a whey concentrate is released, which contains still a significant content of lactose. This lactose could not be obtained in the desired quality. This thesis describes a method to increase added value from the utilization-process of whey. To achieve this intent, methods where evaluated, to use the remaining lactose as a substrate for the fermentation to ethanol. Yeasts of the strain Kluyveromyces marxianus were evaluated for the use in this process. The degradation rate of the substrate and a maximized conversion were the main objectives. For the growth of the yeast cells, a method was developed, which uses only whey concentrate as substrate and avoids the usage of other materials for nutrition. The method was optimized in consideration of initial substrate concentration and degradation rate. The high content of salts in the whey concentrate leads to the further investigations of inhabitating or proliferating effects of different anions and cations on the used yeast cells. It becomes obvious, that a desalting or dilution of the used whey concentrate is mandatory. For that purpose, the nanofiltration was applied successfully to this process. The usage of not desalted whey concentrate is also possible. With an adequate dilution of the whey concentrate, relative yields of ca. 90% could be achieved. With a significant increase of the initial biomass, the duration of the fermentation process could be halved to ca. 25 h. (orig.)

    Our way of constructing our buildings, our life-style, our housing patterns, as well as our mobility habits, increasingly place stress on the environment and endanger the basis of existence of many living creatures on this planet. Mankind can carry on ignoring the limits of tolerance of their natural environment. However, they must then learn to cope with increasing damage caused by natural catastrophes to which they have contributed. Our extensive use of raw materials pushes the limits as well. Peak-Oil will soon be reached, although the demand for oil will continue to increase strongly. Therefore, we have to dismiss our wasteful technologies, architecture, living standards and housing patterns, established during the 'fossil age'. Construction, development, use, modernisation and repair of buildings and infrastructure take up an unacceptably large amount of surface area and cause a major part of the demand for energy and raw materials in Germany. There are excellent and worthwhile alternatives to the common and familiar habits, patterns and designs. This brochure indicates how sustainable alternatives can be found in the construction and housing sector. A compilation of alternatives - the so-called 'Sustainability scenario' - provides an excellent overview of the amazingly wide spectrum we have to satisfy our housing requirements at a high level and - at the same time - wasting considerably less natural resources. The supposed measures follow the principles 'Return from greenfield to central urban areas' and 'Rather improve the fabric of existing buildings than construct new ones'. The first principle also links to other measures for a mobility less depending on oil and less harmful to our climate. Politicians, leaders of the construction and housing industry, architects, home owners and tenants can positively shape the presented spectrum. By abolishing the home building subsidy and by promoting the energy saving refurbishment of buildings, the German Federal Government has set the first important impulses for a sustainable development of the construction and housing sector. The Federal Environment Agency wants to encourage consistent progress through this brochure. (orig.)

    Inequalities of resources ownership and the consequences of the exploitation of non-renewable resources have always caused violent conflicts of varying intensity. The resulting interdependence between conflicts on the one hand and resources on the other hand - discussed here under the term of conflict-resources nexus - is complex and requires a detailed theoretical and conceptional assessment. The risks of conflict vary as a function of the constellations of actors and the existing political, economic and social boundary conditions. These risks are often globally linked and reflect the flow of resources between consumer countries, transit countries, and producer countries. Conflicts in producer countries may endanger the supply of raw materials to consumer countries. Whether the raw material is an energetic resource like natural gas, petroleum, or coal, or a non-energetic resource like coltane or copper: There are many who demand that Germany should adapt to stronger competition and shorter supply and should also be aware of the possibility of conflicts about raw materials. This part-report of the project 'Sustainable Prevention of Resource Conflicts' presents important theoretical and conceptional considerations on the risk of conflict in the raw materials sector. On this basis, further reports will present case studies, scenarios, and preventive strategies. (orig./RHM)

    Due to the global climate change, the power industry has a lot of changes in store. For reasons of environmental protection, the reduction in CO{sub 2} emissions in power generation and loss minimization in power transmission are of particular importance. This means that the share of wind power in a lot of countries, Germany among them, must be as high as possible, for the other ''green'' energy resources, such as hydro or solar power, play only a subordinate part for reasons of their geographical location. Along with sustainability and efficiency of power supply, grid security must be taken into account as well. (orig.)

    Cold generation with district heat is still an exception in Germany. The trend towards combined heat and power generation and the increasing demand for reserve power within minutes and at acceptable cost, the economic efficieny of thermal refrigeration processes will be easier to define in the future. The author presents an exemplary building in the German city of Giessen, where a cafe on the 13th level as well as a doctor's surgery are cooled in summer by an absorption refrigerator cooled by district heat.

    An efficient influence on traffic can generally not be achieved by an individual instrument or by few instruments. Numerous coordinated measures from all domains of traffic policy (Investment policy, price policy, order policy, organisational measures, public affairs work) are required instead. Thus it can be guaranteed that counter-productive effects do not impede reaching the desired targets. The effects of individual measures must supplement and strengthen each other. These synergy effects allow keeping the intensity of individual measures, such as the price policy at a low level and limiting adaptation shocks. A tendency scenario and sustainability scenario until 2020 are defined for a quantitative analysis of the effects of such measure bundle. The period from 2020 until 2050 is merely considered in terms of quality. (orig.) [German] Eine wirksame Verkehrsbeeinflussung kann grundsaetzlich nicht durch ein einzelnes Instrument oder durch wenige Instrumente erreicht werden. Vielmehr ist hierfuer ein abgestimmtes Buendel von Massnahmen aus allen verkehrspolitischen Bereichen (Investitionspolitik, Preispolitik, Ordnungspolitik, organisatorische Massnahmen, Oeffentlichkeitsarbeit) notwendig. Dadurch wird gewaehrleistet, dass die Erreichung der angestrebten Ziele nicht durch gegenlaeufige Wirkungen behindert wird. Die Wirkungen einzelner Massnahmen muessen sich ergaenzen und gegenseitig verstaerken. Solche Synergieeffekte wiederum gestatten es, die Intensitaet von einzelnen Massnahmen, z.B. der Preispolitik, vergleichsweise gering zu halten und damit Anpassungsschocks zu begrenzen. Zur quantitativen Analyse der Wirkungen solcher Massnahmenbuendel werden ein Trendszenario und ein Nachhaltigkeitsszenario bis 2020 definiert. Fuer den Zeitraum 2020 bis 2050 werden lediglich qualitative Ueberlegungen angestellt. (orig.)

  4. f(R) gravity and chameleon theories

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

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

    2008-01-01

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

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

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

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

    2007-03-01

    With the background of the threatening global warming that requires a reduction of greenhouse gas emission by 20 % until 2010 und by 80% until 2050 in Germany, t is reasonable to consider local or municipal climate protection activities. A climate protection politics ''from the bottom'' is not only contributing to a real greenhouse gas reduction, but also triggering the stagnant international climate politics and enhances the sustainable development on a local level. Due to this fact amongst others the Enquete commission of the German Bundestag ''sustainable energy supply under the conditions of globalization and liberalization'' identifies the municipal climate protection activities as important part within the mix of measures that will allow the initiation of an alteration of the actual energy system toward a sustainable energy supply in the long-run. The consequences of globalization and liberalization on the municipal level have not yet been discussed or considered by the Enquete commission. This thesis analyses the conditions induced by the globalization and liberalization on the municipal climate protection activities as constituent of a sustainable energy supply. The project is focusing on the municipal actors and the public utility companies as central point of the considerations. [German] Vor dem Hintergrund einer drohenden globalen Erwaermung, die eine Reduktion der klimawirksamen Treibhausgase bundesweit um 20 % bis 2010 und um 80 % bis 2050 noetig macht, sind Klimaschutzaktivitaeten auf einer lokalen oder kommunalen Ebene in mehreren Dimensionen sinnvoll. Den tatsaechlichen, bezifferbaren Reduktionen von CO2, die hier geleistet werden, gesellt sich ein ''vorbildhafter'' Druck auf eine stockende internationale Klimapolitik hinzu, ebenso leistet die ''Klimaschutzpolitik von unten'' einer nachhaltigen Entwicklung der lokalen Ebene durch Lerneffekte Vorschub.

    Grüßer, Stefan; Loeven, Heinz-Wilhelm

    Dauerhafter Unternehmenserfolg ist nur mit einer fortschrittlichen Instandhaltung zu erzielen. Durch den enormen Kostendruck infolge der Globalisierung und die Innovationssprünge auf der technischen Seite wird auch die Frage nach der modernen Organisationsform für die Instandhaltung gestellt. Eine Möglichkeit der Kostenoptimierung ist das Outsourcing von Instandhaltungsleistungen. Hierbei ist es unerlässlich, dass sich die Mitarbeiter zum Dienstleister entwickeln. In diesem Beitrag wird die Entwicklung der InfraServ Knapsack von einer internen Instandhaltungsabteilung hin zu einem Industriellen Dienstleister beschrieben und Aspekte der Zusammenarbeit mit externen Kunden aus der Sicht des outgesourcten Instandhalters geschildert. Es werden die wichtigen Entwicklungsschritte zur Dienstleistungsorientierung der früheren Eigeninstandhaltung aufgezeigt. Dieser Beitrag ist nicht als "Königsweg“ zu verstehen, er soll vielmehr anhand der Erfahrungen einer outgesourcten Eigeninstandhaltung Anregungen für die Entwicklung der eigenen Instandhaltungsorganisation liefern.

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

    Science.gov (United States)

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

    2017-05-01

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

    Given two simplicial complexes in R^d, and start and end vertices in each complex, we show how to compute curves (in each complex) between these vertices, such that the Fr\\'echet distance between these curves is minimized. As a polygonal curve is a complex, this generalizes the regular notion of weak Fr\\'echet distance between curves. We also generalize the algorithm to handle an input of k simplicial complexes.

    Full Text Available The purpose of this paper is to analyze the legal and economical problems of the PPP-projects (mainly in Tallinn and the comparative analysis of the PPP-projects in some EU countries. Unfortunately the PPP-projects in Estonia is such a new topic that there have been no scientifically qualifiying publications written about it. Quite many topic-related articles have been published in journalism but the purpose of them has been mainly political. In Estonia (mainly in Tallinn the PPP-projects have been exercised since year 2000. Since then the PPP-projects have been debated over by the state (Ministry of Finance and the City of Tallinn about whether the PPPprojects should be counted into the debt obligations of the city or not? According to the Rural Municipality and City Budget Act a rural municipality or city may take loans, on the following conditions, the total amount of unrepaid loans shall not exceed 60 percent 20 per cent of proposed budget revenue for that budgetary year. Until 2008 Tallinn counted the costs of the PPP-projects only as yearly payments to the private sector but not as a loan. Since 2009 the new bookkeeping rules were enacted and the PPP-projects were counted upon the local government dept obligations. Thereat it is relevant to mention that the methodics of the Eurostat don`t calculate PPP-projects as dept obligations of the public sector. Until now the PPPprojects in Estonia have been exercised only for some years and it has been done only for renovation of the social infrastructure objects (schools or construction (dwelling houses, sport structures. Although the PPP-projects have been planned to be used in development of the technical infrastructures (roads these plans haven`t been accomplished yet. PPP-projects have been Tallinn-centered and the reason for this is that Tallinn has compared to other cities a lot more potential to administer and finance the complicated projects. More extensive use of the PPP-projects has been obstructed by the lack of the statewide regulations

    Full Text Available Das Innovationsmanagement dient der aktiven Gestaltung von Wandlungsprozessen, welche es der Bibliothek ermöglichen, rasch auf das sich schnell verändernde Bibliotheksumfeld zu reagieren. Innovativ sein heisst folglich auch, sich ständig zu verändern. Somit sollen sich auch im Innovationsmanagement Prozesse, Strukturen und Schwerpunkte stetig wandeln können und daher sollten sie laufend evaluiert werden. Aus diesem Grund wurde zu Beginn des Innovationsmanagements an der Universitätsbibliothek Bern beschlossen, nach zwei Jahren eine erste Evaluation durchzuführen, um die Prozesse und Kernaufgaben der aktuellen Situation anpassen zu können. Die Ergebnisse zeigten, dass eine stärkere Fokussierung auf strategische Handlungsschwerpunkte und die Förderung der internen Innovationskultur notwendig sind. Als neuen Schwerpunkt setzt die UB Bern nun auf die Implementierung einer systematischen Kundenforschung. Mögliche weitere Erfolgsfaktoren für ein gelingendes Innovationsmanagement sind die enge Verknüpfung zum Projektmanagement und die Einführung eines Produktmanagements. Innovation Management is actively shaping processes which will enable libraries to respond to rapidly changing environments. Being innovative means, therefore, being able to adapt to change and disruption. Processes, structures and focuses in innovation management are also subjected to change and, as a consequence, should be constantly evaluated. For this reason, at the beginning of the implementation of innovation management at University Library Bern the decision had been taken to perform an evaluation after 2 years in order to adjust the processes and core functions to the current situation. The results highlighted that both a stronger focus on strategic priorities and the promotion of internal culture of innovation are necessary. For this purpose, UB Bern focuses on the implementation of a systematic customer research. Other possible factors for successful innovation management include close links to project management as well as the introduction of product management. La gestion de l’innovation a pour but le développement actif de processus de transformation permettant à une bibliothèque de réagir rapidement aux changements dynamiques de son environnement. Être innovant signifie donc évoluer en permanence, ce qui implique le renouvellement et l’évaluation continus des processus, des structures et des priorités. Pour cette raison, lors de la mise en place d’une gestion de l’innovation à la Bibliothèque universitaire de Berne, la décision a été prise d’effectuer une évaluation après deux ans afin d’ajuster les processus et les missions principales à la situation actuelle. Les résultats ont démontré la nécessité de se concentrer sur des priorités stratégiques et d’encourager une culture interne de l’innovation. Dans ce contexte, une nouvelle priorité a été donnée au développement d’une gestion systématique de la clientèle. Un contact étroit avec la gestion de projets et la mise en place d’une gestion des produits sont également considérés comme des mesures favorisant une gestion réussie de l’innovation.

    2012-01-01

    In the FAIR project (Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research) at the GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research GmbH, high intensity heavy ion beams will be provided by the superconducting synchrotron SIS100. Medium charge state ions will be used instead of high charge state ions. The medium charge state ions on the one hand shift the space charge limit towards higher intensities and, on the other hand, avoid intensity losses in stripper stages. The most demanding challenges in the operation with medium charge state heavy ions are beam losses due to charge exchange in collisions with residual gas molecules. Further ionized ions are separated from the circulating beam and get lost on the chamber wall, while releasing a big amount of gas via ion stimulated desorption. The local pressure rise increases the probability for further charge exchange of beam ions, and a self-amplification can evolve. This process may result in a complete beam loss. One way to damp this amplification is given by the installation o...

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper analyzes the Swedish system of higher education and research with respect to the allocation of research resources. The main findings are a considerable expansion of the system since the post war era as well as a strong trend towards decentralization during the last decades. The earlier visible hand of close governance has left power to an invisible hand of market governance. Also, methods of New Public Management have been introduced. Despite an increasing tendency for research evaluations in Sweden the link to funding has so far been weak, however. Even if resources for research to an increasing extent are allocated through short-term project grants rather than long-term block grants a clear tendency towards funding of fewer and larger programmes rather than many small projects can be observed.

    The development of Maybach/MMB/MTU engine is described and documented from 1909 to 1982. Independent of the particular applications of the engines, the need for high power densities has stimulated the development of different engine lines. The methodology of construction has changed as much in this period as the engine design and characteristics. This is illustrated in detail for the development of central components and functional groups.

    The authors of the contribution under consideration report on a construction of a measuring apparatus for in-situ investigations at powdered hydrogen storage materials. This apparatus was used to investigate the Desorption of hydrogen from sodium aluminium hydride ATR spectroscopically and gravimetrically. It could be shown that the two-step Desorption reaction shows characteristic peaks in the medium infrared area. Furthermore, the experimental spectroscopic measurements are consistent with the gravimetric measurements. This enables an adjustment of both measurements. Thus, the resulting quantified optical ATR signal can be used as a level signal for a miniaturised ATR level sensor.

  20. Trends in air quality in Germany. Background; Entwicklung der Luftqualitaet in Deutschland. Hintergrund

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    NONE

    2009-10-15

    Air pollution has markedly decreased in the last 20 years. Through the introduction of filter and flue-gas denitrification systems in power plants and industrial installations; and the use of modern catalysts and fuels, considerably fewer pollutants are today released into the atmosphere. EU-wide air quality limit values for sulphur dioxide, carbon monoxide, benzene and lead are no longer exceeded in Germany. On their way from the emission source (for example, flue or exhaust) to receptor (humans, flora and fauna), pollutant emissions are subject to atmospheric transport and mixing processes as well as chemical reaction. Pollutant concentration in the atmosphere (given, for example, in micrograms per cubic metre of air) can therefore not be directly deduced from the emitted pollutant quantity (given, for example, in tonnes per year). In principle, however, markedly reduced pollutant emissions give cause to expect that pollutant concentration in the atmosphere will also decrease. We observe, however, that since the beginning of this decade air pollution in Germany through particulates, nitrogen oxide and ozone, despite steadily reduced emissions, no longer shows a clear trend, but is subject rather to mainly interannual fluctuations. The limit values for particulates, which were laid down already in 1999 and are obligatory since 2005, are exceeded in many places in Germany. The same applies for limit values for nitrogen dioxide, which come into force in Germany on 1 January 2010. In urban areas - and, above all, in places affected by heavy traffic - air pollution with particulates and nitrogen dioxide is particularly high. Other than in the case of particulates and nitrogen dioxide, ozone pollution is highest in rural areas. For some years, a trend towards higher ozone concentrations has been noticeable in urban areas. In this booklet we describe trends in air pollution with particulates, nitrogen dioxide and ozone, and explain their connection to changes in air pollutant emissions. (orig.)

  1. Development of a low-level radon reference chamber; Entwicklung einer Low-Level-Radon-Referenzkammer

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Linzmaier, Diana

    2013-01-04

    The naturally occurring, radioactive noble gas radon-222 exists worldwide in different activity concentrations in the air. During the decay of radon-222, decay products are generated which are electrically charged and attach to aerosols in the air. Together with the aerosols, the radon is inhaled and exhaled by humans. While the radon is nearly completely exhaled, ca. 20 % of the inhaled aerosols remain in the lungs in one breath cycle. Due to ionizing radiation, in a chain of events, lung cancer might occur. Consequently, radon and its decay products are according to the current findings the second leading cause of lung cancer. At the workplace and in the home measurements of radon activity concentration are performed to determine the radiation exposition of humans. All measurement devices for the determination of radon activity concentration are calibrated above 1000 Bq/m{sup 3}, even though the mean value of the present investigation in Germany shows only 50 Bq/m{sup 3}. For the calibration of measurement devices in the range below 1000 Bq/m{sup 3} over a long time period, the generation of a stable reference atmosphere is presented in this work. Due to a long term calibration (t>5 days) of the measurement devices, smaller uncertainties result for the calibration factor. For the calibration procedure, a so-called low-level radon reference chamber was set up and started operation. The generation of a stable reference atmosphere is effected by means of emanation sources which consist of a radium-226 activity standard. On the basis of {gamma}-spectrometry, the effective emanation coefficient ofthe emanation sources is determined. The traceability of the activity concentration in the reference volume is realized via the activity ofthe radium-226, the emanation coefficient and the volume. With the emanation sources produced, stable reference atmospheres within the range of 150 Bq/m{sup 3} to 1900 Bq/m{sup 3} are achieved. For the realization, maintenance and dissemination of the unit Bq/m{sup 3}, a large volume transfer standard was developed. The transfer standard consists of a multiwire im pulse ionisation chamber as weil as the respective developed electronic measuring equipment and the corresponding software. With the multiwire impulse ionisation chamber, {alpha}-particles in dependency of the energy are detected. Out of the measured {alpha}-energy spectra an activity concentration is determined. The calibration of the multiwire impulse ionisation chamber is performed via a primary standard. The multiwire impulse ionisation chamber is now available as a secondary standard and is used for the calibration of commercial measurement devices. At one of the first calibrations of a commercial device a relative uncertainty of 3.5 % for k=2 for the calibration factor at 200 Bq/m{sup 3} has been achieved.

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

    Science.gov (United States)

    He, Jian-Hua; Hawken, Adam J; Li, Baojiu; Guzzo, Luigi

    2015-08-14

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

    2018-02-01

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

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

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

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

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ma, Hong

    2018-02-01

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

    Klimaschutzstrategien explizit sowohl oekologische als auch oekonomische Anforderungen zu beruecksichtigen vermag, erfuellt zentrale forschungspolitische Ziele in bezug auf den Fragenkomplex 'Nachhaltiges Wachstum'. Innerhalb des Projektzeitraums konnte im Rahmen einer erfolgreichen internationalen Kooperation mit dem ICLIPS-Modell ein detailliertes integriertes Modell des globalen Klimawandels ('Integrated Assessment Model', IAM) erstellt werden. Damit ist es der deutschen Klimafolgenforschung gelungen, in diesem fuer die praktische Politikberatung wichtigen Forschungsfeld Anschluss an die internationale Entwicklung zu finden und in wichtigen Teilbereichen eine fuehrende Rolle zu uebernehmen. Das ICLIPS-Modell enthaelt eine Reihe von Innovationen, die es von anderen intertemporal optimierenden Modellen absetzt. Erwaehnenswert sind hierbei unter anderem ein numerisch hoechst effizientes Klimamodell, das alle relevanten Treibhausgase beruecksichtigt, eine Vielzahl von Klimawirkungsfunktionen ('Climate Impact Response Functions', CIRFs), die klimabedingte Veraenderungen der natuerlichen Vegetation, der landwirtschaftlichen Ertraege und der Wasserverfuegbarkeit beschreiben sowie ein Modell der langfristigen oekonomischen Entwicklung, das erstmalig kostendaempfende Effekte des technologischen Lernens mit einbezieht.

    The lack of harmonization among the fields of environmental policy, energy policy, and economic policy in Germany is obvious. Returning to a basic consensus in energy policy, with an unbiased evaluation of all energy resources, is an indispensable step for all those to whom ecology is a truly serious concept. The positions of all energy resources must be assessed with a view to national and international developments. No source of primary energy must be excluded from that review. Nuclear power remains one of the important options in the energy mix especially from the points of view of CO{sub 2} avoidance and preventive protection of the climate. A leading industrialized nation, such as the Federal Republic of Germany, ought to be able, in the more and more important discussion about globally sustainable development, to return to a consensus across all political parties at least about the back end of the nuclear fuel cycle. Or should the philosopher, Sir Karl Popper, finally be proven right in his statement that those wanting to establish a paradise on earth must be careful not to create hell? (orig.) [Deutsch] Der Abstimmungsmangel zwischen Umwelt-, Energie- und Wirtschaftspolitik in Deutschland ist unuebersehbar. Die Rueckkehr zum energiepolitischen Grundkonsens mit einer vorurteilsfreien Bewertung aller Energietraeger ist fuer solche, die es mit der Oekologie wirklich ernst meinen, unverzichtbar. Der Stellenwert aller Energietraeger muss im Hinblick auf nationale und internationale Entwicklungen ueberdacht werden; eine Tabuisierung einzelner Primaerenergietraeger darf es nicht geben. Insbesondere unter dem Aspekt der CO{sub 2}-Vermeidung und des vorsorgenden Klimaschutzes ist und bleibt die Kernenergie eine bedeutende Option im Energie-Mix. Im Rahmen der allgemein an Bedeutung gewinnenden Diskussion ueber eine global nachhaltige Entwicklung sollte es einer fuehrenden Industrienation wie der Bundesrepublik Deutschland eigentlich gelingen, zumindest hinsichtlich

Zur Rede stehen hier begriffliche Großprojekte wie Gerechtigkeit, Verantwortung, Partizipation, Retinität oder Globalität und Interkulturalität, die als Kristallisationspunkte der Nachhaltigkeitsidee die Grundlagentexte, Positionspapiere und Programme durchziehen. Im Anschluss an die heuristische Studie Globalität und Interkulturalität als integrale Bestandteile beruflicher Bildung für eine nachhaltige Entwicklung (GInE, www.ibw.uni-hamburg.de/GInE wurde ein didaktisches Strukturgitter entworfen, das exemplarische Problemlagen und Dilemmata benennt, so wie Reflexionskategorien für die Hochschuldidaktik in der beruflichen Lehrerbildung zur Diskussion stellt.As a regulative concept, the idea of sustainability implies a number of theorems in the field of humanities. It is regarded as supercomplex and, thus, could not yet be systematically transformed in university didactics. Large scale conceptual terms such as justice, responsibility, participation, retinity, globality, and interculturality are at the core of the discussion – terms which run through basic texts, policy papers, and programmes as focal points of the idea of sustainability. With respect to the heuristic study Globality and Interculturality as Integral Elements of a Professional Education for a Sustainable Development (GInE, www.ibw.uni-hamburg.de/GInE, a didactic framework was designed which not only denotes exemplary problems and dilemmata but also puts up categories of reflection for a university didactics aiming at a professional teacher training.

    Full Text Available Der Reader ist aus der Internationalen Frauenuniversität 2000 entstanden und versammelt Beiträge zum Entwurf einer lebenswerteren Stadt. Er stellt die Geschichte der Geschlechter-Diskussion und die Probleme dar, die das urbane Leben speziell bezüglich der sozialen Rollenverteilung der Geschlechter bereithält. Man gewinnt einen Überblick über die Entstehung und aktuelle Facetten der Relation des Dispositivs „Stadt“ zur Geschlechter-Prägung. Tatsächlich steht allerdings der „Discourse on Women, Urbanism and Architecture“ im Mittelpunkt. Neuere Positionen zum problematischen „Gender“-Begriff und zur Frage nach dem Subjekt der Macht werden zwar referiert, aber nicht weitreichender in die kritischen Beiträge eingearbeitet. Eher Antworten auf akute soziale Probleme suchend als theoretische Entwürfe fortführend, bieten sie informative Denkanstöße für die Entwicklung einer nachhaltig gerechteren Stadt.The essays collected in this volume arise from the International Women’s University in 2000. Its contributions discuss conceptions of a city worth living in. Apart from describing the history of gender debates concerned with the city, the essays centre particularly around problems that urban life creates with regard to the division of social gender roles. The book shows the development and the different faces of a gender encoded city. However, despite expectations raised by the title, the book focuses on discourses on women, urbanism and architecture more than on gender. The contributors do refer to recent theories on gender and the “empowered subject”, but fail to integrate them into their actual analyses. Looking more for answers to severe social problems than to develop new theoretical questions, the book does nonetheless provide some good ideas for a sustainably fair city.

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

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

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

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

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

    2010-01-01

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

    2015-01-01

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

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

    Science.gov (United States)

    Sharif, M.; Nawazish, Iqra

    2018-02-01

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

  18. A viable logarithmic f(R) model for inflation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Amin, M.; Khalil, S.; Salah, M.

    2016-01-01

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

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

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

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mazharimousavi, S. Habib; Halilsoy, M.

    2016-11-01

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

    2013-01-01

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

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

  6. Renal artery intervention using a virtual 4.5-Fr guiding catheter.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Takeshita, Satoshi; Matsumi, Junya; Saito, Shigeru

    2013-05-01

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

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

    A collaborative project funded by the BMBF in the framework of the R and D program ''Energie 2020+'' by 4 Universities, 2 Research Centres and ANSYS was coordinated by Helmholtz- Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR). The present report describes the contributions of HZDR done from September 2009 to January 2013. The project was directed towards the development and validation of CFD models of boiling processes in PWR in the range from subcooled nucleate boiling up to the critical heat flux. The report describes the developed and used models. Main achievements were a comprehensive study of the boiling process itself and a better description of the interfacial area by coupling of wall boiling with a population balance model. The model extensions are validated and the present capabilities of CFD for wall boiling are investigated. By means of rod bundle experiments was shown that the measured cross sectional averaged values can be reproduced well with a single set of calibrated model parameters for different tests cases. For the reproduction of patterns of void distribution cross sections attention has to be focussed on the modelling of turbulence in the narrow channel. The experimental work was focussed on the investigation of the flow in a rod bundle. Using a rod bundle test rig the turbulent single phase flow field (PIV) and the average gas volume fraction (gamma densitometry) are measured. The timely and spatial resolved gas fraction was measured applying the ''High speed x-ray tomography'', developed in Rossendorf.

    OpenAIRE

    Driemel, Anne; Har-Peled, Sariel

    2011-01-01

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

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

    Nakano, Yasuhiro; Sadamatsu, Kenji

    2016-01-01

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

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

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Saaidi, Kh; Aghamohammadi, A

    2012-01-01

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