Ramírez-Muñoz, Jorge; Soria, Alberto; Salinas-Rodríguez, Elizabeth
2007-01-01

Resumen en español Se presenta un análisis hidrodinámico de la interacción de dos burbujas esféricas del mismo tamaño alineadas en la dirección de un flujo uniforme, laminar, newtoniano e incompresible. La burbuja puntera se considera aislada y la burbuja acarreada (segunda burbuja) está sujeta a la acción de cuatro fuerzas: flotación, arrastre cuasiestacionario, impulso del fluido y masa agregada. Aplicando un balance de fuerzas sobre cada burbuja se obtuvo una nueva expresión pa (mas) ra la velocidad de ascenso de la burbuja acarreada. La expresión se comparó con mediciones experimentales, realizadas por otros autores citados en la literatura, para números de Reynolds de 3.06, 21.5 y 35.4 y se obtuvo un error relativo promedio entre 1.2% y 2.1%. Se discuten dos alternativas para aproximar la reducción del arrastre sobre la burbuja acarreada. Se encontró que el arrastre cuasiestacionario no puede incorporar el efecto total de la estela sobre la burbuja acarreada Resumen en inglés A hydrodynamic analysis on the interaction of two equal-size spherical bubbles aligned on the direction of a uniform, laminar, newtonian and incompressible flow, is presented. The leading bubble is considered as an isolated bubble and the trailing bubble (second bubble) is subjected to four forces: buoyancy, quasisteady drag, fluid impulse and added mass. By applying a force balance on each bubble, an expression for the rising velocity of the trailing bubble was obtained. (mas) Comparison of this expression with existing experimental data for 3.06, 21.5 and 35.4 Reynolds number was performed, obtaining a relative average error between 1.2% and 2.1%. Two possible approaches on the trailing bubble drag reduction effect are discussed. It was found that a quasisteady drag is, by itself, unable to incorporate the whole wake effect on the trailing bubble

Transporte de arena en médanos litorales activos y colgados del sudeste de Buenos Aires/ Sand transport in active and hunged coastal dunes of southeastern Buenos Aires

Bértola, G.R.; Cortizo, L.C.
2005-03-01

Resumen en español El transporte de arena por el viento es la principal fuente de suministro de sedimentos para la existencia de médanos litorales en playas arenosas, así como un importante componente en los cálculos de balance sedimentario entre la playa (la fuente) y el médano (el destino). Para evaluar esto, se analizaron médanos del sudeste de la Provincia de Buenos Aires mediante un novedoso método de muestreo, que permite percibir diferencias en la dinámica y textura de la aren (mas) a que conforman el perfil de velocidad, diferencias debido a su génesis y características. El objetivo del trabajo fue analizar si había diferencias apreciables cuantificables en las características de médanos costeros colgados en acantilados de Mar del Plata y en médanos frontales, de costas abiertas al sur de la misma zona, en el arroyo de La Ballenera. Se observó que las arenas de médanos frontales son más gruesas que las de los médanos colgados, debido a las zonas de aporte y emplazamiento topográfico. Los mayores volúmenes de arena transportados son por la cara de barlovento y cresta. El perfil del arroyo La Ballenera se halla más influenciado por el efecto marino que el médano colgado, donde predomina la acción eólica. Se observó que cuando la velocidad del viento se duplica, el volumen transportado es 5 veces mayor, lo mismo que el t o. El coeficiente de arrastre fue prácticamente despreciable a 2,6 m. La metodología empleada para entrampar el sedimento resultó ser aceptable como una fase inicial para el monitoreo de la dinámica de sectores costeros dominados por el viento. Resumen en inglés The sand transport by wind is the main sediment source of supply of silts for the presence of coast dunes in sandy beaches, as well as an important component in the calculations of sedimentary balance among the beach (the source) and the dune (the destination). To evaluate this action, dunes of the southeast of Buenos Aires Province were analyzed by means of a new sampling method that allows to see differences in the dynamics and texture of the sand that conform the profi (mas) le of speed, differences due to its genesis and characteristic. The objective of the work was to analyze if there were quantifiable appreciable differences in the characteristics of coastal dunes hung in cliffs of Mar del Plata and in front dunes, of open costs to the south of the same area, in the La Ballenera Creek. It was observed that the sands of frontal dunes are coarser than those of the hunging dunes, due to the contribution areas and topographical location. The biggest transported volumes of sand are for the windward face and crest. The profile of the La Ballenera Creek is more influenced by the marine effect that the hunging dune, where the eolic action prevails. It was observed that when the speed of the wind is duplicated, the ported volume was 5 larger more, the same thing that the t o. The Drag Coefficient went practically worthless to 2,6 m. The methodology used to trap the silt turned out to be acceptable as an initial phase for the monitoring of the dynamics of coastal sectors dominated by the wind.

Análisis experimental del efecto de la turbulencia en la velocidad de caída de sedimentos en suspensión/ Experimental analysis of turbulence effect in settling velocity of suspended sediments

Salinas-Tapia, H; García-Aragón, J.A; Díaz-Delgado, C
2008-03-01

Resumen en español Por medio de la técnica de Velocimetría por Imágenes de Partículas (PIV), y mediante la aplicación de filtros discriminadores, se calcularon las velocidades de caída de sedimentos para diferentes intervalos de tamaños. Se empleó un canal experimental de sección 10x15 cm y dos valores de caudal líquido con diferentes características de turbulencia para evaluar el efecto de esta última en la velocidad de caída de las partículas de sedimento. La técnica permit (mas) ió determinar la velocidad de partículas individuales, así como las características del campo de flujo del fluido. La captura y análisis de imágenes se realizó con cámaras digitales tipo CCD por medio del soft ware Sharp-provision PIV, empleando la técnica estadística de correlación cruzada. Los resultados mostraron que la velocidad de caída de las partículas es afectada por la turbulencia, la cual tiende a aumentar el coeficiente de arrastre del fluido. La explicación física del fenómeno se relaciona con la magnitud de la velocidad fluctuante en la vertical del fluido. Sin embargo, se requiere continuar con la investigación para llegar a proponer expresiones de cálculo de la velocidad de caída de sedimentos que tomen en cuenta ese efecto. Resumen en inglés Settling velocities of sediment particles for different size ranges were measured in this work using PIV with the help of discriminatory filters. An experimental channel 10x15 cm cross section was used in order to obtain two set of turbulent characteristics corresponding with two different flow rates. The purpose was to analyze the effect of turbulence on the solids settling velocity. The technique allowed us to measure the individual settling velocity of the particles an (mas) d the flow velocity field of the fluid. Capture and image analysis was performed with digital cameras (CCD) using the software Sharp-provision PIV and the statistical cross correlation technique. Results showed that settling velocity of particles is affected by turbulence which enhances the fluid drag coefficient. Physical explanation of this phenomenon is related with the magnitude of the vertical fluctuating velocity of the fluid. However, more research is needed in order to define settling velocity formulas that takes into account this effect.

La técnica "Face up": lifting facial mini-invasivo con hilos tensores/ The Face up technique: minimally invasive facial lifting with tensor threads

Flórez Méndez, M.; Trelles, M. A.
2008-03-01

Resumen en español Presentamos una técnica personal que hemos denominado "Face Up", empleando suturas de poliéster dispuestas a través de incisiones mínimas, que permite lograr un rápido efecto lifting para el rejuvenecimiento de la cara. Nuestra experiencia se basa en los resultados del tratamiento de 600 pacientes intervenidos entre septiembre de 2002 y marzo de 2006. Los resultados fueron evidentes desde el postoperatorio inmediato. Las zonas tratadas quedaron firmemente ligadas al (mas) plano de anclaje dentro del cuero cabelludo. Se trataron frente, sienes, cejas, mejillas, pómulos, cuello y regiones paramaxilares adyacentes a la zona de los músculos maseteros y bucinadores, que ceden por efecto de la gravedad y del envejecimiento. En las zonas seleccionadas, las suturas se deslizan a través del tejido subcutáneo, donde la aponeurosis de los músculos implicados está firmemente ligada a este plano. Para la intervención se emplea una aguja, llamada "Demax" (aguja biselada con punta en los dos extremos provista de un orificio en uno de ellos) para arrastrar la sutura que se inserta desde la región cefálica temporal hasta el punto distal de la zona de la ptosis, donde se efectúa un cambio de sentido formando un bucle que produce el segundo anclaje del tejido, evitando su desplazamiento. La sutura retorna al punto de entrada para su anudamiento al periostio a fin de conseguir y mantener el levantamiento. Las complicaciones recogidas fueron hematomas leves, equímosis, edema, e infección localizada en la incisión de ingreso y nudo de la sutura. En las evaluaciones efectuadas a corto y largo plazo, los resultados fueron buenos con un índice de satisfacción alto por parte de las pacientes y del médico. La técnica "Face Up" es mínimamente traumática y aporta una alternativa al lifting quirúrgico tradicional para el tratamiento del envejecimiento y de la flacidez faciales. Resumen en inglés We present a personal technique called "Face Up", using polyester sutures, deployed via minimal incisions which make it possible to achieve a raid lifting effect for the rejuvenation of the face. Our experience is based on the results of treating 600 patients who underwent this procedure between september 2002 and march 2006. The results were evident immediately post-surgery. The treated areas were firmly tied to the anchorage plain of the scalp. Theese areas were forehea (mas) d, temples, eyebrows, cheeks, cheekbones, neck and paramaxillar regions adjacent to the area of masseter and buccinator muscles, which sag due to gravitational force and ageing. In the selected areas, sutures are slid along the subcutaneous tissue, where the aponeurosis of the muscles involved is firmly tied to this plain. For the intervention, a so-called "Demax" needle is used (pointed in bevel at both ends with a hole at one end) to drag the suture inserted from the temporal cephalic region as far as the distal point of the area of ptosis, where a change in direction is taken forming a hub which is produced by the second anchorage of the tissue, avoiding its shifting. The suture returns to the entry point for knotting to the periosteum in order to achieve and maintain the lifting. Complications were mild haematoma, equimosis, oedema, and localised infection at the entry incision and suture knot. In short and long term evaluations the results were good with a high satisfaction index both by patients and doctors. The "Face Up" technique is minimally traumatic and provides an alternative to traditional surgical lifting for the treatment of facial ageing and laxness.

Estructuras de deformación (¿sismitas?) en la Formación Río Negro, provincia de Río Negro, Argentina

Schillizzi, Roberto; Luna, Liliana; Falco, Juan Ignacio
2010-07-01

Resumen en español A Las estructuras de deformación (ED) en sedimentos blandos comprenden las alteraciones que se producen casi simultáneamente con la sedimentación. Estos procesos se hallan en relación directa con las características internas de los materiales sedimentarios y de los factores externos que actúan sobre ellos. Sus resultados incluyen deformaciones como inyecciones, fracturas, volcanes y laminaciones convolutas que afectan total o parcialmente la estratificación. Los se (mas) dimentos blandos deformados por sismos se incluyen bajo la denominación general de sismitas (seismites). Como objetivo de esta investigación se plantea reconocer, por primera vez, estructuras de deformación ubicadas en la Formación Río Negro presentes en el sector norte del Golfo San Matías, en inmediaciones del Faro Río Negro. La metodología empleada consistió en el reconocimiento y descripción de las estructuras, para lo cual se extrajeron muestras para determinar granulometría, mineralogía y contenido de materia orgánica. Se fotografiaron los distintos sectores con deformaciones con el fin de establecer modelos comparativos. El sector estudiado, de 4 km de extensión, se ubica entre el faro de Río Negro y el inicio del Banco Verde y morfológicamente corresponde a un frente acantilado con orientación ENE-OSO. En él se determinaron las siguientes ED: a- de carga simple, pseudonódulos contiguos y aislados, y estructuras complejas; b- de escape de fluidos y c- estructuras de deslizamiento basal y por presión dirigida. El origen de las deformaciones se debe a las características de las sedimentitas y a los procesos que las afectan tales como los efectos por carga, escapes de fluidos y las presiones dirigidas. Como origen de estos procesos se señalan: la presión de la columna litológica, las olas de tormentas y los terremotos. Por los rasgos hallados las deformaciones del litoral rionegrino tendrían un origen sísmico, proceso ocurrido en un único evento durante el ciclo Andino cuyos inicios se fijan hace aproximadamente 45 Ma. Por otra parte sus techos y bases no se hallan asociados a otros procesos de deformación y sus espesores no exceden el metro de potencia. Además se hallan acotadas a la zona de transición entre los miembros medio y superior de la Formación Río Negro descansando en algunos casos sobre arcilitas y en otros sobre limolitas, originadas en un paleorelieve de interdunas. Resumen en inglés Soft-sediment deformation structures (SSD) are alterations produced almost simultaneously with sedimentation. They are directly related to internal characteristics of sedimentary materials as well as to external factors acting on them. Results derived from such alterations are evidenced as injections, fractures, volcanoes and convolute laminations, among other forms, affecting stratification either totally or partially. Soft-sediment deformation structures resulting from (mas) seisms are known as seismites. The present study aims at determining for the first time the presence of SSD structures in the Río Negro Formation, located in the northern area of San Matías Gulf, near Río Negro Lighthouse, Argentina (Fig. 1). To this end, structures were firstly identified and further described. Samples were subsequently collected for the determination of grain-size, mineralogy and organic matter content. Photographs of the different sectors evidencing deformations were taken in order to determine further comparative models. Morphology in the study area is associated to cliffs with vertical, fractured fronts and with an average height of 70 m in whose base torn-down blocks are accumulated. The geological structure of the study area is related to the Cuenca del Colorado and the Comarca Nordpatagónica, whose basement is mainly composed of Paleozoic and Mesozoic crystalline rocks. The sedimentary tertiary cover from the Miocene-Pliocene is represented by light-blue sandstones of the Río Negro Formation (Andreis, 1965). This unit was formed in an aeolian environment with intercalations of clay-silt shallow lagoons and a marine episode located in the mid area of the Río Negro Formation. At the top of the Río Negro Formation there are Pleistocene-Holocene sedimentites having a thickness of up to 5 m. Within the local structural framework of our study area there are fractures with a NE-SW and a NW-SE direction, which are related with fractures N55º, N90º and N350º azimuth located in the abrasion platform. According to Dzulinsky and Walton (1965), Lowe (1975), Brencley and Newall (1977), Clauss (1993), van Loon (2002), Owen (2003), Neuwerth et al. (2006), Alfaro et al. (2006), Montenat et al. (2007), among others (Table 1), and, taking into account the geometry of deformations, laboratory reconstructions and field observations from our study area, it can be concluded that the classifications of SSD structures tend to establish morphologic and genetic systematizations. The following characteristics were identified in our study area: limited deformations among stratigraphic horizons; a lateral continuity of SSD structures at considerable distances; and a confinement between non-deformed strata and its lithological association with psamitic-pelitic sediments. The study area, which is 4 km long and is located between Río Negro Lighthouse and the beginning of Banco Verde, is from the morphological point of view, a cliffed front with an ENE-WSW orientation. Different types of SSD structures were identified in this area. For example, from the morphological point of view and according to the loading mechanisms observed, simple-load structures (Fig. 2), attached and detached pseudonodules (Figs. 3, 4 and 5) and complex structures (Fig. 6) were identified. Furthermore, from the genetic point of view and according to the intrusion processes observed in soft sediments, water-scape structures (Fig. 7) and plate- or fountain-like deformations (Fig. 8) were found. From the genetic point of view, and based on the collapse and pressure mechanisms observed, basal slumping (Fig. 9) and directed-pressure structures (Fig. 11) were also found. The above-mentioned SSD structures were analyzed and interpreted following Strachan´s model (2002) (Fig. 10) and Laird´s model (1968) (Fig. 12). The origin of SSD structures depends on the characteristics of sedimentites and on the mechanisms that produce them. In the study area, the materials susceptible to deformation come from an interdune environment that is characterized by granulometric variations derived from the fluctuating and restrictive climatic conditions (Cojan and Thiry, 1992) that typify the Río Negro Formation. Fine-grained materials having low cohesion and poor sorting such as the sediments of deformed strata (Fig. 13) produced SSD structures as a result of high pore pressure and liquefaction effects (Tsuchida and Hayashi, 1971; Obermeier, 1996). Grain packing with a porous value as that allows intercommunication among grains and saturated material, is also crucial to the formation of SSD structures. The mineralogic content of deformed levels is composed of i) quartz, chalcedony, orthose, plagioclase, pyroxenes and biotite, opaques (magnetite and ilmenite, autigenic pyrite) in crystalline aggregates; ii) undetermined Fe oxides; and iii) colorless and light-brown unaltered volcanic glass shards, clays identified as smectite-illite interstratified and scarce kaolinite. Grains are mainly subangular and, to a lesser extent, sub-round and round. The surface of the majority of grains in the study area was found clean and with some marks. The percentage of CaCO3 was found to vary from 0.5 to 3% and that of total organic carbon (TOC) was found to reach 1.5%. Deformations may be produced as a result of load deformation mechanisms, fluid escape, basal slumping or pressure-directed displacements. Due to load deformation mechanisms, structures are linked to gravity-related movements occurring during the initial stages of deposition. For these deformations to occur, grain-size at the overlaying levels should be thicker than at the underlying levels, for example, sandstones rather than silstones or claystones. These deformations are related to water saturation at the deformed level (fluidization-liquefaction). Therefore, deformation mechanisms, which involve both expulsion and rotation of fragments as well as fluid escape, are characterized by the action of lithostatic pressure which produces movement (deformation) and by the action of the underlying sedimentary levels. Deformations may also result from a fluid escape mechanism, i.e., from a mechanism associated to i) the spatial arrangement of grains (packing), ii) their shape, iii) their tendency to inequigranularity, and iv) the communication among macro- and micro- pores as well as the high or low sinuosity connection among themselves (Net and Limarino, 2000). Further requirements for deformations to occur include particular thixotrophic conditions, especially the presence of colloids among grains. The rupture of unions of particles either by hitting or by shearing is, among others, a cause which produces an unbalance between hydrostatic pressure and lithostatic pressure. If the latter is altered, the energetic unbalance makes fine sediments flow among the weakly lithified sandstones whose extrusion will occur via both vertical and horizontal pore ducts (Lopez Gamundi, 1986; Clauss, 1993). Basal slumping produces deformations that are associated not only to soft sediments deposited in natural slopes but also to interbedded sand- and mud-levels. Layers tend to have a prismatic-shaped geometry whose materials are under ductile-to-fragile conditions, in which antique layers support younger ones. Once horizontality is affected, movement, which is marked by a rupture of the original slope, begins. The lower levels are expected to transport the upper ones without affecting the original succession of layers. At the delay of movement derived from the compressive effect of the displacement front, fluids extrude forming cones or cut dikes (Fig. 10). Several deformations of this type initiate movement as result of differences in the hydrostatic gradient (Strachan, 2002). Deformations may be also produced as a result of pressure-directed displacements which are conditioned by the compaction level, thickness and ability of materials to deform. Thus, deformations occur because the original level is saturated in water as a result of the ductile behavior of materials (Bracco et al., 2005). Laird (1968) claims that SSD structures should meet some of the following requirements to be considered of seismic origin: slightly curved strata walls and floors to follow the original stratification and interruption of continuity of the stratum that is marked by a scar in which the sedimentary fillings keep their characteristics both above and below stratification. There could be rotated sediment clasts below the discontinuity as a result of a thrust-induced drag of the upper sedimentary packing. These processes could be, in turn, triggered either by the charge or pressure of the lithologic column, storm waves and seismicity. Storm-wave impact may also produce deformation in soft sediments. Nonetheless, no high energy structures such as cross-beddings or tsunami-type chaotic sedimentation were observed in our study area. Noteworthingly, for stormwave-derived liquefaction to occur, waves should reach magnitudes higher than 6 m (Alfaro et al., 2002), this being a phenomenon that was not recorded in our study area. Taken together, findings from the present study indicate that SSD structures in our study area are seismic alterations that occurred in an event during the Andean cycle whose beginnings are traced approximately 45 My ago. The fact that i) both the roofs and bottoms of these structures are not associated to other processes of deformation, ii) their thickness does not exceed one meter, and iii) they are confined to a transitional area between the middle and top members of the Río Negro Formation, lying in some cases on claystones and in some other cases, on siltstones, originated in an interdune paleorelief, confirms their seismic origin.
