    Efficient energy utilisation (intelligent energy saving techniques) is characterised by the following features. When realised in new buildings using currently available techniques it can help save up to 90% of what has hitherto been considered normal energy consumption. It becomes economically efficient for reductions in energy consumption of 50% or more. In terms of cost it outcompetes all non-fossil energy carriers (i.e., excluding oil, natural gas, and coal) of the future. (orig./HW) [Deutsch] Die rationelle Energienutzung (`intelligente Einspartechnik`) - kann mit heute verfuegbarer Technik beim Neubau bis ca. 90% der bisher verwendeten Energie einsparen helfen; - ist bei Energieeinsparungen von ueber 50% bereits heute wirtschaftlich vertretbar; - ist gegenueber allen Zukunftsenergietraegern, die nicht auf fossilen Brennstoffen (also Oel, Erdgas und Kohle) basieren, konkurrenzlos kostenguenstig.

  6. How much of our environment do we need?. MIPS - a measuring method for an ecological economy; Wieviel Umwelt braucht der Mensch?. MIPS - Das Mass fuer oekologisches Wirtschaften

    Schmidt-Bleek, F.; Klueting, R.

    1994-12-31

    This book illustrates how much of our environment we use up with the products and services associated with everyday life, how large the ecological impact of our consume society actually is; we build roads, dams, heavy goods vehicles, warehouses, factories, monocultures and rubbish tips. We take iron ore, sand, gravel, coal oil, water, air and wood from our environment in huge, ever-increasing qualities. Slag heaps, erosion and disrupted water flow are left behind. This man-made materialistic society is altering nature`s balance persistently and for the long term. This materialism is no longer ecologically sustainable. We must learn to prosper with less negative environmental impacts. The author has developed a means of measuring the intensity of environmental impact of products, processes and services, based on the material consumed to allow acurate comparisons. In this comprehensible informative book he reveals, for the first time publicly, the measure/formula by means of many practical examples and illustrations to show a way out of the crisis. (orig./UA) [Deutsch] Dieses Buch veranschaulicht, wieviel Umwelt wir fuer Produkte und Dienstleistungen des taeglichen Lebens verbrauchen, wie gross die `oekologischen Rucksaecke` unseres Konsums wirklich sind: Wir bauen Strassen, Daemme, Lastwagen, Lager, Fabriken, Supermaerkte, Legen Monokulturen und Abfalldeponien an. Aus der Umwelt holen wir Erze, Sand, Kies, Oel, Wasser, Luft und Holz in riesigen und immer wachsenden Mengen. Zurueck bleiben Abraumhalden, Erosionen und gestoerte Wasserlaeufe. Die menschengemachten Materialverschiebungen, die Stoffstroeme, veraendern die natuerlichen Balancen, nachhaltig und unaufhaltsam. Die Materialintensitaet unseres Wohlstandes ist oekologisch nicht mehr tragbar. Wir muessen lernen, Wohlstand mit weniger Umwelt zu erhalten und zu schaffen. Der Autor hat ein neues Mass (mips=Material-Intensitaet pro Serviceeinheit) entwickelt, dessen Basis der Stoffverbrauch ist und das es

  7. Power supply in future: ecological aspects; Kuenftige Stromversorgung: Oekologische Aspekte

    2000-06-01

    The most important prerequisites for an ecological supply of energy in the future is the opting out of nuclear energy and the completion of the second and third phase of the socio-ecological tax reform. As a part of our energy will continue to be generated on the basis of fossil fuels in the foreseeable future, it is essential that a radical change takes place in the efficiency of fossil energy engineering. In addition to this, any possible energy-saving potential must be exploited; this includes the new energy-saving law, promoting the modernisation of old buildings and modern energy management (heat insulation, heating engineering, warm water heating etc.). For an ecological power supply the share of renewable energies must be increased to form a major pillar of our power supply. The '100,000-roof' programme of the German federal government and the development programme for near-market renewable energy sources form part of this approach. Energy research should shift its orientation and accelerate the conversion of our power supply: priority should be given to developing energy-saving technologies and renewable energy. Supporting municipalities and public utilities is especially important. This means revising the basic conditions of energy laws so that they assist public utilities to face competition as power utilities. (orig.) [German] Wichtigste Voraussetzung fuer eine kuenftige oekologische Stromversorgung sind der Ausstieg aus der Atomenergie sowie die Vollendung der zweiten und dritten Stufe der oekologisch-sozialen Steuerreform. Da in absehbarer Zeit ein Teil der Energieerzeugung weiterhin auf Basis fossiler Energietraeger erfolgen wird, ist eine Effizienzrevolution bei den fossilen Energietechnologien notwendig. Darueber hinaus muessen die erschliessbaren Energieeinsparpotentiale genutzt werden; dazu gehoeren die neue Energiesparverordnung, die Foerderung der Altbausanierung sowie ein modernes Energiemanagement (Waermedaemmung

    This article examines the high requirements placed on the construction of buildings in alpine areas. In particular, the requirements placed by the new Monte-Rosa mountaineers' lodge and the new revolving restaurant on top of the Hohen Kasten mountain in Switzerland are examined. The demanding requirements placed on the building-technological and energy aspects of such alpine buildings are looked at. Energy production and storage aspects and energy use are discussed and the use of well-tried conventional technology is noted. Also, the importance of carrying out simulations of the systems is stressed.

    Full Text Available Sind alle Faschisten latente Homosexuelle? Gary Schmidts Studie über die Thematisierung von Homosexualität in der deutschen Nachkriegsliteratur untersucht Vorurteile gegenüber schwulen Männern in der Gesellschaft der frühen Bundesrepublik. Schmidt sucht nach homosexuellen Stereotypen in ausgewählten Werken von Wolfgang Koeppen, Alfred Andersch und Heinrich Böll. In den meisten der von ihm behandelten Romane findet Schmidt die Denktradition bestätigt, nach der ein Zusammenhang zwischen männlicher Homosexualität und Faschismus besteht. Im Gegensatz zu vielen anderen Arbeiten, die sich mit Gender-Thematik und Homosexualität befassen, ist Schmidts Studie wenig theorielastig. Das Buch ist gut und verständlich geschrieben und sei allen empfohlen, die sich für das Thema interessieren.The ritualisation of violence through the character of the victim represents an important aesthetic procedure in fin de siècle literature. Brittnacher’s work investigates the meaning of the motive of victimization in the works of Hofmannsthal, Rilke, Borchardt, Flaubert, Wilde, George, and D’Annunzio. Brittnacher succeeds at documenting that the ideology of victimization is closely linked to a gender-specific system of power in which males, unsure of their mascuilinity, look for ways to stabilize their identities.

    Building materials recycling is part and parcel of any intelligent, resource-conserving materials recycling concept. Principally, however, it can never be more than the second best solution. This is because it must always come after all has been done to prevent building material residues from arising in the first place. The greatest potential for waste avoidance in the building industry lies in the planning phase. Planning nowadays is oriented more to production, utilisation, reutilisation, maintenance, and recycling processes, i.e. more to processes in general than to the design of any certain product. (orig./HW) [Deutsch] Baustoff-Recycling ist ein unverzichtbarer Beitrag zu intelligenten, resourcensparenden Materialkreislaeufen. Es stellt aber immer nur die zweitbeste Loesung dar. Denn zunaechst muessen alle Moeglichkeiten genutzt werden. Bauabfaelle gar nicht erst entstehen zu lassen. Die groessten Potentiale zur Abfallvermeidung in der Bauproduktion liegen in einer Bauplanung, die sich intensiver als bisher an Herstellungs-, Nutzungs-, Umnutzungs-, Instandhaltungs- und Recyclingprozessen orientiert, also eher prozessorientierte Planung als Produktgestaltung.

  13. Wie wissenschaftlich ist der Evolutionsgedanke?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Vollmer, Gerhard

    Darwin war ein besonnener Mann; alles Aufsehen war ihm zuwider. Trotzdem hat er eine Revolution ausgelöst, deren Wirkung nicht auf die Biologie beschränkt blieb. Seine Theorie lässt sich in fünf Teiltheorien zerlegen, die sich durch die Begriffe Artenwandel, Verwandtschaft alles Lebendigen und gemeinsamer Ursprung, Artenaufspaltung und Artenvielfalt, Gradualismus, natürliche Auslese charakterisieren lassen. Dadurch wurden mehrere religiöse und weitere weltanschauliche Überzeugungen in Frage gestellt. Deshalb wird die Evolutionstheorie auch heute noch vielfach kritisiert, ja bekämpft. Die Vorwürfe lassen sich ordnen nach den Kriterien, mit denen wir erfahrungswissenschaftliche Theorien beurteilen. Haltbar ist daran nur, dass es für die Evolutionstheorie zwar beliebig viele Bestätigungen gibt, aber nur wenige Widerlegungsmöglichkeiten. Durch die neuerdings entwickelten und durchgeführten Evolutionsexperimente ist die empirische Situation allerdings deutlich besser geworden. Am (erfahrungs)wissenschaftlichen Charakter der Evolutionstheorie besteht deshalb kein Zweifel.

Franchise-Systeme bieten also eine gute Starthilfe fuer den Sprung in die Selbststaendigkeit in der verhaeltnismaessig jungen Branche der Solartechnik. Da klassisches Franchising in erster Linie eine Strategie zur Expansion im Markt ist, kann es ebenso gut von etablierten Installationsbetrieben genutzt werden, um sich das Standbein Solartechnik mit abgeschwaechtem Risiko zusaetzlich aufzubauen. Vier Franchise-Systeme werden im Detail verglichen. (orig./AKF)

    There is an increasing demand for integrated building concepts in order to reduce energy consumption. Building design, construction and heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) technology are decisive in this respect. Thus, an essentially higher energy efficiency is achieved and solar energy becomes the main energy source. An `active building envelope` assumes the task of controlling the energy flows between inside and outside. This paper reports on new components, system concepts and planning tools for solar building. (orig.) [Deutsch] Fuer zukuenftige Bauten werden in hohem Masse Forderungen nach integrierten Konzepten zur Begrenzung des Energieverbrauchs gestellt. Gestalt, Konstruktion und Klimatechnik sind dabei massgebliche Einflussfaktoren. Hierdurch wird eine wesentlich hoehere Energieeffizienz erzielt und Solarenergie kann die uebrigen Energiequellen zurueckdraengen. Eine `aktive Gebaeudehuelle` uebernimmt die Aufgabe, den Energiefluss zwischen Innen und Aussen zu steuern. Der Beitrag berichtet ueber neue Komponenten, Systemkonzepte und Planungswerkzeuge fuer das Solare Bauen. (orig.)

    The work aims at an ecological valuation of air pollutant emissions and energy consumption as particularly relevant aspects of waste treatment and waste combustion plants, based on new scientific results, in order to draw up ecological budgets and make system comparisons in waste treatment. The target set is particularly effectively achieved by the following: documentation and scientific derivation of relevant boundary conditions, careful surveying and data processing for the purpose of making up an ecological budget, and objective valuation and interpretation of results. The high transparency of the methodics should be emphasized. They make the results obtained conclusive and verifiable. (orig.) [Deutsch] Ziel der vorliegenden Arbeit ist die oekologische Bewertung der besonders relevanten Aspekte Abluftemissionen und Energieverbrauch von MBA und MVA auf Basis aktueller Forschungsergebnisse als Grundlage fuer Oekobilanzen und Systemvergleiche zur Restabfallbehandlung. Diese Zielvorgabe wird durch die Dokumentation und wissenschaftliche Herleitung relevanter Rahmenbedingungen, sorgfaeltige Erhebung und Aufbereitung der Daten unter Gesichtspunkten der Erstellung einer Oekobilanz und letztendlich aufgrund der objektiven Bewertung und Interpretation der Ergebnisse im besonderen Masse erreicht. Besonders hervorzuheben hierbei ist die hohe Transparenz bei der methodischen Vorgehensweise. Die ermittelten Ergebnisse sind somit nachvollziehbar und ueberpruefbar. (orig.)

    In April 2006, a domestic building consisting of eleven prefabricated steel modules and designed by architect Ralf Kappes was constructed at Santa Monica, California, within just eight hours. The two-storey building has a living area of 230 square metres. Rooms are open, with versetzte Ebenen.. The climate of the Los Angeles region is warm, with a constant sea breeze. The building is designed for natural ventilation, and no air conditioning system is required. If it gets too hot, warm air will be withdrawn by a blower in the upper Treppenhaus. In the winter season, the sun shines right into the interior of the building, where solar heat is stored and then slowly released by the concrete floor. A PV system on the roof generates 75 percent of the electric power required, and there is also a solar thermal power system for water heating. The building was awarded the LEED Platinum Award (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). (orig.) [German] Im April 2006 verfolgten zahlreiche Schaulustige, wie aus elf vorfabrizierten Stahlmodulen innerhalb von acht Stunden ein Wohnhaus entstand. Das Modulsystem stammt aus der Feder des Architekten Kappes. Die Stahlrahmenmodule bilden ein zweigeschossiges Wohnhaus mit 230 qm Wohnflaeche. Grosszuegige Luftraeume und versetzte Ebenen im Wohnbereich sowie zahlreiche Ein- und Ausblicke praegen die Architektur auf dem kompakten Hanggrundstueck in der Naehe des pazifischen Ozeans. Im warmen Klima von Los Angeles weht hier stets der Wind vom Meer. Das Haus ist so konzipiert, dass man sehr gut quer lueften kann. Es benoetigt keine Klimaanlage. Bei allzu grosser Hitze saugt ein Ventilator oben im Treppenhaus warme Luft ab. Im Winter reicht die tief stehende Sonne bis ins Hausinnnere. So kann die Sonnenwaerme vom Betonboden gespeichert und langsam abgegeben werden. Auf dem Dach erzeugt eine Photovoltaikanlage 75% des Strombedarfs. Ausserdem gibt es dort eine Solarthermieanlage fuer die Wasserversorgung. Dafuer erhielt das Wohnhaus die

    1994-01-01

    A preliminary review of Inservice Testing (IST) effectiveness for Code Class 1, 2, and 3 pumps at nuclear power plants was performed. IST requirements are specified by ASME Section XI, and the Operations and Maintenance Standard (OM Part 6). The INPO NPRDS database was used to provide failure reports for these components for 1988 to 1992. This time frame coincides with the issuance of Generic Letter 89-04, which resulted in a more consistent application of the requirements by the licensees. For this time period, 2585 pump failures were reported. A review of these failures indicated that the majority (71.6%) were due to external leakage, and were excluded from this study since these events typically do not affect pump operability and are not detected by the measurement of IST parameters. Of the remaining 733 events, a review was performed to identify the primary failure causes, failure modes, and method of detection. Plant testing programs, consisting of IST, surveillance testing, and special testing, detected approximately 40% of these occurrences. Others were detected through operational abnormalities, routine and incidental observations, alarms, and while performing maintenance. This paper provides a discussion of the results of the study

    The installation of hot-dip galvanized construction units means sustainable acting. Since corrosion protection by hot-dip galvanizing can be particularly named sustainable due to its longevity, its environmental careful production, its recycling ability and life extension of steel components. Particularly the reduction of the maintenance cycles and utilization costs accompanying with a slightly higher initial investment makes the hot-dip galvanizing a sustainable system. Steel components which are treated with galvanization and colour coating, have a maintenance-free life span of more than 80 years.

    Full Text Available Das Problem der mehrsprachigen Suche gewinnt in der letzten Zeit immer mehr an Bedeutung, da viele nützliche Fachinformationen in der Welt in verschiedenen Sprachen publiziert werden. RSWBPlus ist eine bibliographische Datenbank zum Nachweis der Fachliteratur im Bereich Planen und Bauen, welche  deutsch- und englischsprachige Metadaten-Einträge enthält. Bis vor Kurzem war es problematisch Einträge zu finden, deren Sprache sich von der Anfragesprache unterschied. Zum Beispiel fand man auf deutschsprachige Anfragen nur deutschsprachige Einträge, obwohl die Datenbank auch potenziell nützliche englischsprachige Einträge enthielt. Um das Problem zu lösen, wurde nach einer Untersuchung bestehender Ansätze, die RSWBPlus weiterentwickelt, um eine mehrsprachige (sprachübergreifende Suche zu unterstützen, welche unter Einbeziehung eines zweisprachigen begriffbasierten Thesaurus erfolgt. Der Thesaurus wurde aus bereits bestehenden Thesauri automatisch gebildet. Die Einträge der Quell-Thesauri wurden in SKOS-Format (Simple Knowledge Organisation System umgewandelt, automatisch miteinander vereinigt und schließlich in einen Ziel-Thesaurus eingespielt, der ebenfalls in SKOS geführt wird. Für den Zugriff zum Ziel-Thesaurus werden Apache Jena und MS SQL Server verwendet. Bei der mehrsprachigen Suche werden Terme der Anfrage durch entsprechende Übersetzungen und Synonyme in Deutsch und Englisch erweitert.

    Wenn man aktuell Produktionsbereiche in Deutschland und Europa besucht, fallen im Zusammenhang mit modernen Produktionsmethoden immer öfter die Begriffe Kanban (jap. Karte, Signal) und Pull-Produktion, und dies nicht ohne Stolz, da diese mit dem schillernden Vorbild des Toyota Produktionssystems in Zusammenhang stehen. Tatsächlich ist Kanban ein integraler Bestandteil moderner Produktionssysteme. Blickt man aber im Rahmen von Prozessanalysen hinter die Fassaden", d. h. in die tägliche Praxis der Arbeitsprozesse, wird man schnell desillusioniert - die viel gepriesenen klassischen Kanban-Regeln werden im Tagesgeschäft nicht eingehalten.

  7. Enhancing the effectiveness of IST through risk-based techniques

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Floyd, S.D.

    1996-12-01

    Current IST requirements were developed mainly through deterministic-based methods. While this approach has resulted in an adequate level of safety and reliability for pumps and valves, insights from probabilistic safety assessments suggest a better safety focus can be achieved at lower costs. That is, some high safety impact pumps and valves are currently not tested under the IST program and should be added, while low safety impact valves could be tested at significantly greater intervals than allowed by the current IST program. The nuclear utility industry, through the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI), has developed a draft guideline for applying risk-based techniques to focus testing on those pumps and valves with a high safety impact while reducing test frequencies on low safety impact pumps and valves. The guideline is being validated through an industry pilot application program that is being reviewed by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. NEI and the ASME maintain a dialogue on the two groups` activities related to risk-based IST. The presenter will provide an overview of the NEI guideline, discuss the methodological approach for applying risk-based technology to IST and provide the status of the industry pilot plant effort.

  8. Josef Frank and the history of architecture: Gothic and the Renaissance, Leon Battista Alberti and Albrecht Dürer in the architectural discourse on Neues Bauen at the beginning of the 1930s

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available The paper focuses on Josef Frank’s convinced use of historiographical arguments in his sharp critique of German modernist architecture. Frank’s attention to architectural history dates back to his education at the Technische Hochschule in Vienna, with Carl König, and the writing of a doctoral thesis on Leon Battista Alberti’s religious buildings in 1910. If a profound knowledge of Alberti’s writings informs Frank’s entire theoretical work, the point discussed here is the parallel between Neues Bauen and Gothic traced by Frank to exclude Neues Bauen from a true modernity, based, on the opposite, on a classical tradition of thought. An attempt is made to reconstruct Frank’s historiographical references and to insert his work in the broader historiographical context, thus highlighting a close link between architectural theory and critique on the one hand and contemporary historiographical constructions on the other.

    1996-01-01

    The ASME has utilized several schemes for identifying the appropriate scope of components for inservice testing (IST). The initial scope was ASME Code Class 1/2/3, with all components treated equally. Later the ASME Operations and Maintenance (O ampersand M) Committee decided to use safe shutdown and accident mitigation as the scoping criteria, but continued to treat all components equal inside that scope. Recently the ASME O ampersand M Committee decided to recognize service condition of the component, hence the comprehensive pump test. Although probabilistic risk assessments (PRAs) are incredibly complex plant models and computer hardware and software intensive, they are a tool that can be utilized by many plant engineering organizations to analyze plant system and component applications. In 1992 the ASME O ampersand M Committee got interested in using the PRA as a tool to categorize its pumps and valves. In 1994 the ASME O ampersand M Committee commissioned the ASME Center for Research and Technology Development (CRTD) to develop a process that adapted the PRA technology to IST. In late 1995 that process was presented to the ASME O ampersand M Committee. The process had three distinct portions: (1) risk-rank the IST components; (2) develop a more effective testing strategy for More Safety Significant Components; and (3) develop a more economic testing strategy for Less Safety Significant Components

    In spite of considerable advances in research ecotoxicology and ecotoxicology for testing purposes, fundamental problems exist owing to the immense range of concepts, prerequisites and goals. Alleged weaknesses of ecotoxicology in terms of knowledge acquisition so far have had their cause not only in its pragmatic empirism but also in inadequate methodics and, especially, inconsistent or diversified target orientation. The methodics currently available provide tools permitting to a very large extent to fulfill requirements with the necessary precision and acuity. But practical execution has to heed the magnitude of effort that society is prepared to make for the benefit of the environment. Here, setting the appropriate priorities is the second major challenge to the objectivity of experts, following the assessment of risk versus benefit. (orig.) [German] Trotz erheblicher Fortschritte in der wissenschaftlichen und Pruefoekotoxikologie bestehen aufgrund der Vielfalt der Konzeptionen, Anforderungen und Zielvorgaben grundsaetzliche Probleme. Bisherige behauptete Schwaechen der Oekotoxikologie im Hinblick auf Erkenntnisfortschritt sind nicht nur durch pragmatische Empirie begruendet, sondern auch in ungenuegender Methodik und insbesondere inkonsistenter bzw. vielfaeltiger Zielorientierung. Mit der derzeit verfuegbaren Methodik koennen Anforderungen mit der jeweils notwendigen Praezision und Aussageschaerfe weitestgehend bearbeitet werden. Die praktische Bearbeitung hat sich jedoch danach zu richten, welchen Aufwand die Gesellschaft bereit ist fuer die Gesundheit der Umwelt zu tragen, wobei die richtige Prioritaetensetzung nach den Kriterien Risiko-Nutzen-Aufwand die wohl groesste Herausforderung an Expertenobjektivitaet darstellt.

    Focal cartilage lesions are a cause of long-term disability and morbidity. After cartilage repair, it is crucial to evaluate long-term progression or failure in a reproducible, standardized manner. This article provides an overview of the different cartilage repair procedures and important characteristics to look for in cartilage repair imaging. Specifics and pitfalls are pointed out alongside general aspects. After successful cartilage repair, a complete, but not hypertrophic filling of the defect is the primary criterion of treatment success. The repair tissue should also be completely integrated to the surrounding native cartilage. After some months, the transplants signal should be isointense compared to native cartilage. Complications like osteophytes, subchondral defects, cysts, adhesion and chronic bone marrow edema or joint effusion are common and have to be observed via follow-up. Radiological evaluation and interpretation of postoperative changes should always take the repair method into account. (orig.) [German] Die Therapie fokaler Knorpelschaeden ist weiterhin eine klinische Herausforderung. Nach erfolgter Sanierung gilt es daher besonders, Erfolg und Misserfolg zu evaluieren und den Verlauf standardisiert und somit reproduzierbar zu beurteilen.

Nach einer erfolgreichen Knorpelreparatur ist eine vollstaendige, aber nicht hypertrophe Fuellung des Knorpeldefekts das primaere Kriterium. Zum umgebenden Nativknorpel ist ausserdem eine durchgehende Integration des Transplantats vordergruendig. Im weiteren postoperativen Verlauf sollte das Transplantat ausserdem ein im Vergleich zu nativem Knorpel isointenses Signalverhalten zeigen.

    Recent local scale investigations of the competition of superconductivity and magnetism in molecular systems revealed rich physics associated with a quantum phase transition. Here, we experimentally study individual Fe atoms adsorbed on a reconstructed surface of superconducting Ta by inelastic scanning tunneling spectroscopy (ISTS) at a temperature of 1 K and as a function of magnetic field of strength up to 3 T perpendicular to the surface. We observe strong inelastic excitations at three different adsorption sites of the Fe adatoms. The majority site shows a sharp step around 2 meV which is almost independent of the magnetic field. The other two sites exhibit excitations around 1 meV and 4 meV which have a weak magnetic field dependence indicating the magnetic origin of this excitation. In all three cases the superconducting energy gap and coherence peaks are preserved at zero magnetic field indicating very weak coupling between the magnetic moment and the cooper pairs.

    The industrial surface treatment of metallic and non-metallic materials is a relevant area in environmental protection. The surface-treatment industry causes polluted waste water and in addition sludges contaminated with heavy metals, which often have to be deposited as hazardous waste. Improvement of process techniques of the surface treatment is therefore an effective possibility decreasing the environmental impact. Target of this section of the research project was the ecological and economic evaluation of potential optimization possibilities for the involved enterprises and the co-operation during the optimization. For this research assignment it was determined to operate with a bottom-up methodology as in the systems analysis. The general instrument results thus as a derivative from the analysis of the methodologies with the special examples, which are processed as sample solutions. Within the framework of the work took place a use of methodical items from the LCI and the business administration. Additionally methods of process engineering and of systems analysis were applied. For the fulfillment of the target within this research assignment an objective evaluation and optimization instrument was developed and tested. With the help of this instrument it is possible to judge whether modifications on system actually reduce the ecological and economic impacts within the total system boundaries. For the support of the instrument several software-programs were used and developed. In addition, generalizable process models were elaborated and algorithms for determination and conversion to flow of material-minimizing technologies were derived and represented in generally.

    1996-12-01

    At River Bend Station, IST testing had problems. Operations could not perform the test with the required repeatability; engineering could not reliably trend test data to detect degradation; licensing was heavily burdened with regulatory concerns; and maintenance could not do preventative maintenance because of poor prediction of system health status. Using Energy`s Total Quality principles, it was determined that the causes were: lack of ownership, inadequate test equipment usage, lack of adequate procedures, and lack of program maintenance. After identifying the customers and suppliers of the IST program data, Energy management put together an upgrade team to address these concerns. These customers and suppliers made up the IST upgrade team. The team`s mission was to supply River Bend with a reliable, functional, industry correct and user friendly IST program. The IST program in place went through a verification process that identified and corrected over 400 individual program discrepancies. Over 200 components were identified for improved testing methods. An IST basis document was developed. The operations department was trained on ASME Section XI testing. All IST tests have been simplified and shortened, due to heavy involvement by operations in the procedure development process. This significantly reduced testing time, resulting in lower cost, less dose and greater system availability.

    This paper describes the calculation of two-group incremental cross sections for all of the reactivity devices and incore structural materials for an RFSP-IST full-core model of Wolsong NPP Unit 1, in support of the conversion of the reference plant model to two energy groups. This is of particular interest since the calculation used the new standard 'side-step' approach, which is a three-dimensional supercell method that employs the Industry Standard Toolset (IST) codes DRAGON-IST and WIMS-IST with the ENDF/B-VI nuclear data library. In this technique, the macroscopic cross sections for the fuel regions and the device material specifications are first generated using the lattice code WIMS-IST with 89 energy groups. DRAGON-IST then uses this data with a standard supercell modelling approach for the three-dimensional calculations. Incremental cross sections are calculated for the stainless-steel adjuster rods (SS-ADJ), the liquid zone control units (LZCU), the shutoff rods (SOR), the mechanical control absorbers (MCA) and various structural materials, such as guide tubes, springs, locators, brackets, adjuster cables and support bars and the moderator inlet nozzle deflectors. Isotopic compositions of the Zircaloy-2, stainless steel and Inconel X-750 alloys in these items are derived from Wolsong NPP Unit 1 history dockets. Their geometrical layouts are based on applicable design drawings. Mid-burnup fuel with no moderator poison was assumed. The incremental cross sections and key aspects of the modelling are summarized in this paper. (author)

    International Standard Problem 47 examined the ability of computer codes to predict local gas distributions during experiments simulating Loss of Coolant Accidents with Loss of Emergency Core Coolant (LOCA/LOECC) or Pressurized Water Reactor severe accident scenarios that involve hydrogen release to containment. It involved three experimental test facilities (TOSQAN, MISTRA and ThAI) located in France and Germany. This report documents AECL's GOTHIC-IST 6.1bp2 model of Phase B of the MISTRA experiment with steam condensation in an air-helium atmosphere. The GOTHIC-IST model used to model the TOSQAN test (open simulation) was scaled up to model the MISTRA test (blind simulation). The GOTHIC-IST results are in good agreement with the MISTRA results, except for some anomalies in the experimental results. (author)

    The climate sensitivity of the aquatic, amphibic and terrestrial compartments of the lower Weser region was analyzed. This region, located between Bremen and Bremerhaven in northern Germany, is part of a bigger natural reserve ('Unterwesermarsch'). Vegetation and land use were mapped at the biotype level, and forecasts of changes to be expected were attempted on the basis of a regionalised climate scenario. Climate-induced changes in the topology of the headlands and in the morphology of the lower Weser river could not be taken into account. [German] In der vorliegenden Arbeit (Teil B: 'Klimasensitivitaet der Unterweser und ihrer Vorlaender') des Teilprojektes Oekologischer Komplex wird die Klimasensitivitaet der aquatischen, amphibischen und terrestrischen Lebensraeume der Unterweserregion analysiert. (Die Ergebnisse der Untersuchungen der Klimasensitivitaet der Marschen sind im Abschlussbericht des Teilprojektes Oekologischer Komplex, Teil A, Kraft and Schirmer 2000 beschrieben). Das Untersuchungsgebiet, im Norden Deutschlands zwischen Bremen und Bremerhaven gelegen, stellt den inneren Teil des Naturraumes Unterwesermarsch dar. Die Vegetation und die Nutzung des Gebietes wurde flaechendeckend auf der Ebene von Biotoptypenkartierungen erfasst. Prognosen der Flaechenbilanzen und der kuenftigen Veraenderung der Biotoptypen und der Fauna des Vorlandes und der Unterweser wurden auf der Grundlage eines regionalisierten Klimaszenarios vorgenommen. Klimabedingte Veraenderungen der Topografie der Vorlandbereiche und der Morphologie der Unterweser konnten innerhalb der vorliegenden Studie nicht beruecksichtigt werden. (orig.)

  16. PhySIC_IST: cleaning source trees to infer more informative supertrees.

    Supertree methods combine phylogenies with overlapping sets of taxa into a larger one. Topological conflicts frequently arise among source trees for methodological or biological reasons, such as long branch attraction, lateral gene transfers, gene duplication/loss or deep gene coalescence. When topological conflicts occur among source trees, liberal methods infer supertrees containing the most frequent alternative, while veto methods infer supertrees not contradicting any source tree, i.e. discard all conflicting resolutions. When the source trees host a significant number of topological conflicts or have a small taxon overlap, supertree methods of both kinds can propose poorly resolved, hence uninformative, supertrees. To overcome this problem, we propose to infer non-plenary supertrees, i.e. supertrees that do not necessarily contain all the taxa present in the source trees, discarding those whose position greatly differs among source trees or for which insufficient information is provided. We detail a variant of the PhySIC veto method called PhySIC_IST that can infer non-plenary supertrees. PhySIC_IST aims at inferring supertrees that satisfy the same appealing theoretical properties as with PhySIC, while being as informative as possible under this constraint. The informativeness of a supertree is estimated using a variation of the CIC (Cladistic Information Content) criterion, that takes into account both the presence of multifurcations and the absence of some taxa. Additionally, we propose a statistical preprocessing step called STC (Source Trees Correction) to correct the source trees prior to the supertree inference. STC is a liberal step that removes the parts of each source tree that significantly conflict with other source trees. Combining STC with a veto method allows an explicit trade-off between veto and liberal approaches, tuned by a single parameter.Performing large-scale simulations, we observe that STC+PhySIC_IST infers much more informative

Freud entdeckte, dass der Geschlechtsunterschied durch den Signifikanten vermittelt wird, denn Triebe als solche ignorieren die Dichotomie Mann/Frau. Jacques Lacan greift diesen vernachlässigten Aspekt auf und hebt die Schicksale des Subjekts mit der Sprache durch seine Lehre als etwas Fundamentales hervor. In Anbetracht der Prämisse, dass «die Neurose wie eine Frage strukturiert» sei, drücken die komplexen symptomatischen Manifestationen der Hysterika ihren Versuch aus, sich in einen Diskurs einzuschreiben, der von der Unmöglichkeit, eine kategoriale Antwort auf das Rätsel der Weiblichkeit zu geben, geprägt ist. Deren Frage lautet also: Was ist eine Frau? Ein Signifikant ergibt nur Sinn in Verbindung zu einem anderen Signifikanten und daher werden wir alle den durch den Signifikanten vermittelten Sachen gegenüber unabänderlich entfremdet. Aus dieser Sichtweise heraus möchte ich mich mit der Frage der Heterosexualität auseinandersetzen.

  20. Component unavailability versus inservice test (IST) interval: Evaluations of component aging effects with applications to check valves

    1997-07-01

    Methods are presented for calculating component unavailabilities when inservice test (IST) intervals are changed and when component aging is explicitly included. The methods extend usual approaches for calculating unavailability and risk effects of changing IST intervals which utilize Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA) methods that do not explicitly include component aging. Different IST characteristics are handled including ISTs which are followed by corrective maintenances which completely renew or partially renew the component. ISTs which are not followed by maintenance activities needed to renew the component are also handled. Any downtime associated with IST, including the test downtime and the following maintenance downtime, is included in the unavailability evaluations. A range of component aging behaviors is studied including both linear and nonlinear aging behaviors. Based upon evaluations completed to date, pooled failure data on check valves show relatively small aging (e.g., less than 7% per year). However, data from some plant systems could be evidence for larger aging rates occurring in time periods less than 5 years. The methods are utilized in this report to carry out a range of sensitivity evaluations to evaluate aging effects for different possible applications. Based on the sensitivity evaluations, summary tables are constructed showing how optimal IST interval ranges for check valves can vary relative to different aging behaviors which might exist. The evaluations are also used to identify IST intervals for check valves which are robust to component aging effects. General insights on aging effects are also extracted. These sensitivity studies and extracted results provide useful information which can be supplemented or be updated with plant specific information. The models and results can also be input to PRAs to determine associated risk implications

    A trade-off study has been carried out to compare the differential costs of using high-strength alloy copper versus oxygen-free, high-conductivity (OFHC) copper for the center legs of the toroidal field (TF) coils of an Ignition Spherical Torus (IST). The electrical heating, temperatures, stresses, cooling requirements, material costs, pump costs, and power to drive the TF coils and pumps are all assessed for both materials for a range of compact tokamak reactors. The alloy copper material is found to result in a more compact reactor and to allow use of current densities of up to 170 MA/m 2 versus 40 MA/m 2 for the OFHC copper. The OFHC conductor system with high current density is $24 million less expensive than more conventional copper systems with 30 MA/m 2 . The alloy copper system costs $32 million less than conventional systems. Therefore, the alloy system offers a net savings of $8 million compared to the 50% cold-worked OFHC copper system. Although the savings are a significant fraction of the center conductor post cost, they are relatively insignificant in terms of the total device cost. It is concluded that the use of alloy copper contributes very little to the economic or technical viability of the compact IST. It is recommended that a similar systematic approach be applied to evaluating coil material and current density trade-offs for other compact copper-TF-coil tokamak designs. 9 refs., 13 figs., 13 tabs

    Decision makers need tools to understand the priorities and to set up benchmarks and track progress in their disaster risk reduction activities, so that they can justify their decisions and investments. In this regard, Megacity Indicator System for Disaster Risk Management (MegaIST), is developed in order to be used in disaster risk management studies, for decision makers and managers to establish right strategies and proper risk reduction actions, enhance resource management and investment decisions, set priorities, monitor progress in DRM and validate decisions taken with the aim of helping disaster oriented urban redevelopment, inform investors about risk profile of the city and providing a basis for dissemination and sharing of risk components with related stakeholders; by Directorate of Earthquake and Ground Research of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM). MegaIST achieves these goals by analyzing the earthquake risk in three separate but complementary sub-categories consisting of "urban seismic risk, coping capacity and disaster risk management index" in an integrated way. MegaIST model fosters its analyses by presenting the outputs in a simple and user friendly format benefiting from GIS technology that ensures the adoptability of the model's use. Urban seismic risk analysis includes two components, namely; Physical Risk and Social Vulnerability Analysis. Physical risk analysis is based on the possible physical losses (such as building damage, casualties etc.) due to an earthquake while social vulnerability is considered as a factor that increases the results of the physical losses in correlation with the level of education, health, economic status and disaster awareness/preparedness of society. Coping capacity analysis is carried out with the aim of understanding the readiness of the Municipality to respond and recover from a disaster in Istanbul can be defined both in terms of the Municipality's operational capacities - the capacity of the

The Initiative Solarwaerme Plus started it's activities with two basic marketing research surveys to explore what German consumers and house owners think about thermal solar energy. These two surveys, based on most developed market research methods, achieved lots of new 'know how', which helps the initiative to developed tailor-made information and advertising material. Initiative's marketing people learned that owners of thermal solar energy devices were not mainly motivated by ecological means, but fascinated about the amount of warm water, such a device delivers.

(b) Mittelfristig soll die Abhaengigkeit von der staatlichen Foerderung abgebaut werden. Modernes Marketing basiert jedoch ganz wesentlich auf einer fundierten Datenbasis ueber den Verbraucher. Also wurde seinerzeit beschlossen, mittels Marktforschung eine solche Datenbasis zu beschaffen. (orig.)

    The validation of the Plant Dynamics Code (PDC) developed at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) for the steady-state and transient analysis of supercritical carbon dioxide (sCO2) systems has been continued with new test data from the Naval Nuclear Laboratory (operated by Bechtel Marine Propulsion Corporation) Integrated System Test (IST). Although data from three runs were provided to ANL, only two of the data sets were analyzed and described in this report. The common feature of these tests is the power-neutral operation of the turbine-compressor shaft, where no external power through the alternator was provided during the tests. Instead, the shaft speed was allowed to change dictated by the power balance between the turbine, the compressor, and the power losses in the shaft. The new test data turned out to be important for code validation for several reasons. First, the power-neutral operation of the shaft allows validation of the shaft dynamics equations in asynchronous mode, when the shaft is disconnected from the grid. Second, the shaft speed control with the compressor recirculation (CR) valve not only allows for testing the code control logic itself, but it also serves as a good test for validation of both the compressor surge control and the turbine bypass control actions, since the effect of the CR action on the loop conditions is similar for both of these controls. Third, the varying compressor-inlet temperature change test allows validation of the transient response of the precooler, a shell-and-tube heat exchanger. The first transient simulation of the compressor-inlet temperature variation Test 64661 showed a much slower calculated response of the precooler in the calculations than the test data. Further investigation revealed an error in calculating the heat exchanger tube mass for the PDC dynamic equations that resulted in a slower change in the tube wall temperature than measured. The transient calculations for both tests were done in two steps. The

  10. Benchmark of WIMS-IST against MCNP for CANDU pressure tube fast fluxes

    Donders, R.E.; Douglas, S.R.

    2002-01-01

    Pressure tube fast-flux data in CANDU are currently calculated using the multi-group neutron transport code WIMS-IST. In this study, the WIMS-IST fast flux calculations are benchmarked against MCNP calculations (a Monte Carlo particle transport code), over the range of fuel burnup and coolant density in CANDU. The comparison shows good agreement between WIMS and MCNP, with WIMS fast fluxes being 1.5% to 4% lower than the MCNP values. The difference is smallest for fresh fuel, and increases with burnup. The fast flux gradient across the pressure tube (factor of 1.23 from inner edge to outer edge) is accurately calculated by WIMS. When reporting fast fluxes in pressure tubes, these are generally given as >1.000 MeV fluxes. For WIMS, this requires an extra conversion step, since the WIMS ENDF/B libraries do not have a group boundary at 1 MeV. The conversion step is based on a fictitious isotope ONEMEV in the WIMS nuclear data library. The conversion factor in WIMS was found to be about one percent too high. When providing >1 MeV fluxes from WIMS, this partially compensates for the slight under prediction of the fast flux. Pressure tube >1 MeV fluxes from WIMS are therefore 0.5% to 3% lower than MCNP values. To obtain accurate fast flux data, neutron transport calculations must be performed on a critical cell. For this study, all calculations were performed with radial albedo boundary conditions giving a critical cell. This required the use of an albedo version of MCNP, developed at AECL. (author)

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the lungs is becoming increasingly appreciated as a third diagnostic imaging modality besides chest x-ray and computed tomography (CT). Its value is well acknowledged for pediatric patients or for scientific use particularly when radiation exposure should be strictly avoided. However, the diagnosis of interstitial lung disease is the biggest challenge of all indications. The objective of this article is a summary of the current state of the art for diagnostic MRI of interstitial lung diseases. This article reflects the results of a current search of the literature and discusses them against the background of the authors own experience with lung MRI. Due to its lower spatial resolution and a higher susceptibility to artefacts MRI does not achieve the sensitivity of CT for the detection of small details for pattern recognition (e.g. fine reticulation and micronodules) but larger details (e.g. coarse fibrosis and honeycombing) can be clearly visualized. Moreover, it could be shown that MRI has the capability to add clinically valuable information on regional lung function (e.g. ventilation, perfusion and mechanical properties) and inflammation with native signal and contrast dynamics. In its present state MRI can be used for comprehensive cardiopulmonary imaging in patients with sarcoidosis or for follow-up of lung fibrosis after initial correlation with CT. Far more indications are expected when the capabilities of MRI for the assessment of regional lung function and activity of inflammation can be transferred into robust protocols for clinical use.

    Full Text Available http://dx.doi.org/10.5007/1677-2954.2012v11nesp1p1   Schopenhauer gilt als Vorreiter oder erster Vertreter der Lebensphilosophie, wie sie später von Dilthey, Nietzsche, Bergson und anderen entfaltet wurde. Im Unterschied zur klassischen Lebensphilosophie und zu den an sie anknüpfenden ethischen Entwürfen wird das Leben bei Schopenhauer aber nicht als Zweck betrachtet, sondern als Mittel zu einem anderen Zweck, nämlich für die Ethik, die in der Verneinung des Willens zum Leben gipfelt. Schon in den frühesten handschriftlichen Aufzeichnungen verwendet Schopenhauer verschiedene Metaphern, um das Leben als Medium der ethischen Erkenntnis zu charakterisieren. Besonders häufig tritt dabei das Bild vom Leben als Spiegel auf, in dem der Mensch sein eigenes Wesen und damit auch das Wesen der Welt erblickt. Im Hauptwerk wird dann dieses Bild vom Begriff der Objektivation des Willens abgelöst. Insofern die höchste und deutlichste Objektivation des Willens der Lebenslauf des menschlichen Individuums darstellt, ist Schopenhauers Lebensbegriff eng mit seiner Charakterlehre verknüpft. In dem Beitrag wird das verwickelte Verhältnis von Leben, Erkennen und Ethik vor dem Hintergrund der proto-hermeneutischen Metaphysikkonzeption Schopenhauers anhand der Entwicklung der Spiegelmetapher betrachtet.

  19. Soldiers, Angels and Women: the episode of the empty Tomb in Ist and IInd Century Christianity

    2014-04-01

    Full Text Available The narration of the Passion of the Christ was an apologetic tool essential for the ?rst christians because it provided them with a soteriologist perspective and, also, re?ected the political and social experiences of the writing communities. The episodes of Jesus’ arrest and death were accounts clearly meant for polemics not only with externals, jews and gentiles, but also with other Christian ?owings. On the basis of this notion we propose to analyse the episode of Jesus’ women disciples in front of the empty sepulchre from a historic perspective which will explain the changes that have taken place as a result of the positions and interests of the different writers. To do this, we will move around a time span which goes from the middle of the decade of the 70’s in Ist century up to the end of IInd century. We will begin the analysis with the Gospel of Mark, the ?rst testimony of the episode of the empty tomb. This episode is considered a novelty which comes from the Christian-helenistic circle of Antioch, since Paul did not seem to have known about it in his letters. Then we will proceed to consider the versions proposed by the Gospels of Matthew, Luke, John, the Epistula Apostolorum and the Gospel of Peter. As a closing element and also to provide a ?nal balance we will turn to the opinion of the pagan critic Celsus.

    Full Text Available Aus einer interdisziplinären Kolloquiumsreihe im Wintersemester 2004/2005 des Cornelia Goethe Centrums für Frauenstudien und die Erforschung der Geschlechterverhältnisse (CGC ist eine Aufsatzsammlung mit acht Beiträgen entstanden, welche sich mit frauenspezifischen Unrechtserfahrungen auseinandersetzen. Der Facettenreichtum der Aufsatzthemen entspricht dem im Titelkompositum „Unrechtserfahrungen“ ausgedrückten Spannungsverhältnis: Zum einen wird anhand von konkret erlebten Einzelschicksalen und von Darstellungen in der Literatur die Erfahrung von Ungerechtigkeit und Unrecht problematisiert. Zum anderen wird die rechtliche Begrifflichkeit genauer untersucht. Die Autorinnen kommen aus den Bereichen Philologie, Rechts- und Geschichtswissenschaft. Entsprechend bietet der Band eine vielfältige und insgesamt ergiebige Gesamtschau auf die Unrechtserfahrungen von Frauen in Vergangenheit und Gegenwart.This collected volume of eight essays tackles the experience of injustice specific to women. It was born out of an interdisciplinary colloquium during the winter semester of 2004/2005 at the Cornelia Goethe Center for Women’s Studies and the Study of Gender Relations (CGC. The richly varied themes of the essays correspond to the tension expressed in the composite word in the title “unjust-experience”: For one, the volume problematizes the experience of inequality and injustice through individual concrete experience and through literary presentations. In addition, it examines legal terminology in detail. The authors come from the wide-ranging areas of philology, law, and history. Accordingly, the volume offers a diverse and altogether rich overview of women’s experiences of injustice in the past and the present.

    Efficient and reproducible sample preparation is a prerequisite for any robust and sensitive quantitative bottom-up proteomics workflow. Here, we performed an independent comparison between single-pot solid-phase-enhanced sample preparation (SP3), filter-aided sample preparation (FASP), and a commercial kit based on the in-StageTip (iST) method. We assessed their performance for the processing of proteomic samples in the low μg range using varying amounts of HeLa cell lysate (1-20 μg of total protein). All three workflows showed similar performances for 20 μg of starting material. When handling sample sizes below 10 μg, the number of identified proteins and peptides as well as the quantitative reproducibility and precision drastically dropped in case of FASP. In contrast, SP3 and iST provided high proteome coverage even in the low μg range. Even when digesting 1 μg of starting material, both methods still enabled the identification of over 3000 proteins and between 25 000 and 30 000 peptides. On average, the quantitative reproducibility between experimental replicates was slightly higher in case of SP3 (R 2 = 0.97 (SP3); R 2 = 0.93 (iST)). Applying SP3 toward the characterization of the proteome of FACS-sorted tumor-associated macrophages in the B16 tumor model enabled the quantification of 2965 proteins and revealed a "mixed" M1/M2 phenotype.

    Full Text Available istSOS (Istituto scienze della Terra Sensor Observation Service is an implementation of the Sensor Observation Service (SOS standard from the Open Geospatial Consortium. The development of istSOS started in 2009 in order to provide a simple implementation of the SOS for the management, provision and integration of hydro-meteorological data collected in Canton Ticino (Southern Switzerland. istSOS is an Open Source, entirely written in Python and based on reliable software like PostgreSQL/PostGIS and Apache/mod_wsgi. This paper illustrates the latest software enhancements, including a RESTful Web service and a Web-based graphical user interface, which enable a better and simplified interaction with measurements and SOS service settings. The robustness of the implemented solution has been validated in a real-case application: the Verbano Lake Early Warning System. In this application, near real-time data have to be exchanged by inter-regional partners and used in a hydrological model for lake level forecasting and flooding hazard assessment. This system is linked with a dedicated geoportal used by the civil protection for the management, alert and protection of the population and the assets of the Locarno area. Practical considerations, technical issues and foreseen improvements are presented and discussed.

    The Wolsong-1 Phase-B pre-simulations have been carried out with the exclusive use of the code suite WIMS/DRAGON/RFSP-IST in replacement of the previous PPV/MULTICELL/RFSP code system in preparation of tests to be conducted as scheduled in December 2010 after the refurbishment. A comprehensive simulation package has been undertaken starting from the approach to first criticality to the flux measurements and scan. In order to secure the validity of the results, the simulations are performed using both the Uniform and SCM fuel tables. An elaborating contribution has been invested into the work in view of the inexperience of using WIMS/SCM fuel tables as well as incremental cross sections generated by using DRAGON-IST. The overall assessment of simulation results indicates that the newly adopted WIMS/DRAGON/RFSP-IST code suite could be used in replacement of PPV/MULTICELL/RFSP for the verification against the Phase-B test results.

    The increasing volume of data describing human disease processes and the growing complexity of understanding, managing, and sharing such data presents a huge challenge for clinicians and medical researchers. This paper presents the @neurIST system, which provides an infrastructure for biomedical research while aiding clinical care, by bringing together heterogeneous data and complex processing and computing services. Although @neurIST targets the investigation and treatment of cerebral aneurysms, the system's architecture is generic enough that it could be adapted to the treatment of other diseases. Innovations in @neurIST include confining the patient data pertaining to aneurysms inside a single environment that offers clinicians the tools to analyze and interpret patient data and make use of knowledge-based guidance in planning their treatment. Medical researchers gain access to a critical mass of aneurysm related data due to the system's ability to federate distributed information sources. A semantically mediated grid infrastructure ensures that both clinicians and researchers are able to seamlessly access and work on data that is distributed across multiple sites in a secure way in addition to providing computing resources on demand for performing computationally intensive simulations for treatment planning and research.

    Full Text Available Die radikale Prostatektomie ohne Nerverhalt geht mit Impotenz einher. Bei nerverhaltendem Vorgehen kann das Risiko der erektilen Dysfunktion gesenkt, aber nicht ausgeschlossen werden. Die präoperative Beratung der Patienten erfordert bei nerverhaltender Prostatektomie die Kenntnis der Faktoren, die Einfluss auf die postoperative Potenz haben. Patienten & Methoden: 110 Patienten antworteten 24 Monate nach radikaler perinealer nerverhaltender Prostatektomie auf einen per Post übermittelten Fragebogen. Die Patienten wurden, entsprechend dem Erection Hardness Score, nach der Rigidität ihrer Erektionen befragt. Überwiegend erfolgte der Nerverhalt unilateral (104/110. Verschiedene potenzielle Risikofaktoren (Alter, Qualität der präoperativen Erektion, Serum-PSA, Gleason-Score, Tumorvolumen, Prostatavolumen, adjuvante Strahlentherapie, ASA-Score, Chronic Disease Score [CDS], arterielle Hypertonie, Hypercholesterinämie, Diabetes mellitus, KHK, Nikotinkonsum wurden univariat mit der postoperativ erzielten Potenz korreliert. Multivariat wurden dann jene Parameter untersucht, die in der univariaten Analyse einen signifikanten (p ≤ 0,05 oder einen tendenziellen Zusammenhang (p ≤ 0,2 mit der postoperativen erektilen Funktion aufwiesen. Ergebnisse:Das Alter (p 0,001 und der ASAScore (p = 0,018 waren in der univariaten Analyse negative Prädiktoren der postoperativen Potenz. In der multivariaten Analyse war lediglich das Alter (p = 0,028 von signifikanter Bedeutung. Mit jedem Lebensjahr der Männer steigt das Risiko einer um eine Stufe im EHS schlechteren Erektion um das 1,128-Fache an. Bei einem Altersunterschied von 10 Jahren ist das Risiko eines postoperativ schlechteren Erektionsvermögens um den Faktor 3,334 erhöht, bei einem um 20 Jahre höheren Alter beträgt dieser Faktor 11,121. Diskussion & Praxisrelevanz: Das Lebensalter der Patienten wurde im Einklang mit der Literatur als signifikanter Faktor für die postoperative Potenz identifiziert

  16. Ist2 in the yeast cortical endoplasmic reticulum promotes trafficking of the amino acid transporter Bap2 to the plasma membrane.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Wendelin Wolf

    Full Text Available The equipment of the plasma membrane in Saccharomyces cerevisiae with specific nutrient transporters is highly regulated by transcription, translation and protein trafficking allowing growth in changing environments. The activity of these transporters depends on a H(+ gradient across the plasma membrane generated by the H(+-ATPase Pma1. We found that the polytopic membrane protein Ist2 in the cortical endoplasmic reticulum (ER is required for efficient leucine uptake during the transition from fermentation to respiration. Experiments employing tandem fluorescence timer protein tag showed that Ist2 was necessary for efficient trafficking of newly synthesized leucine transporter Bap2 from the ER to the plasma membrane. This finding explains the growth defect of ist2Δ mutants during nutritional challenges and illustrates the important role of physical coupling between cortical ER and plasma membrane.

    This paper describes the results of the four NRC Inservice Testing (IST) Workshops which were held in early 1997 pertaining to NRC Inspection Procedure P 73756, Inservice Testing of Pumps and Valves. It also presents the status of the ASME code committees' resolution of certain questions forwarded to the ASME by the NRC. These questions relate to code interpretations, inconsistencies in the code, and industry concerns that are most appropriately resolved through the ASME consensus process. The ASME committees reviewed the questions at their December 1997 and March 1998 code meetings. Of particular interest are those questions for which the ASME code committees did not agree with the NRC response. These questions, as well as those which the committees provided some additional insight or input, are presented in this paper

  20. Distinct Mechanisms of Recognizing Endosomal Sorting Complex Required for Transport III (ESCRT-III) Protein IST1 by Different Microtubule Interacting and Trafficking (MIT) Domains*

    Guo, Emily Z.; Xu, Zhaohui

    The endosomal sorting complex required for transport (ESCRT) machinery is responsible for membrane remodeling in a number of biological processes including multivesicular body biogenesis, cytokinesis, and enveloped virus budding. In mammalian cells, efficient abscission during cytokinesis requires proper function of the ESCRT-III protein IST1, which binds to the microtubule interacting and trafficking (MIT) domains of VPS4, LIP5, and Spartin via its C-terminal MIT-interacting motif (MIM). Here, we studied the molecular interactions between IST1 and the three MIT domain-containing proteins to understand the structural basis that governs pairwise MIT-MIM interaction. Crystal structures of the three molecular complexes revealed that IST1 binds to the MIT domains of VPS4, LIP5, and Spartin using two different mechanisms (MIM1 mode versus MIM3 mode). Structural comparison revealed that structural features in both MIT and MIM contribute to determine the specific binding mechanism. Within the IST1 MIM sequence, two phenylalanine residues were shown to be important in discriminating MIM1 versus MIM3 binding. These observations enabled us to deduce a preliminary binding code, which we applied to provide CHMP2A, a protein that normally only binds the MIT domain in the MIM1 mode, the additional ability to bind the MIT domain of Spartin in the MIM3 mode.

    The endosomal sorting complex required for transport (ESCRT) machinery is responsible for membrane remodeling in a number of biological processes including multivesicular body biogenesis, cytokinesis, and enveloped virus budding. In mammalian cells, efficient abscission during cytokinesis requires proper function of the ESCRT-III protein IST1, which binds to the microtubule interacting and trafficking (MIT) domains of VPS4, LIP5, and Spartin via its C-terminal MIT-interacting motif (MIM). Here, we studied the molecular interactions between IST1 and the three MIT domain-containing proteins to understand the structural basis that governs pairwise MIT-MIM interaction. Crystal structures of the three molecular complexes revealed that IST1 binds to the MIT domains of VPS4, LIP5, and Spartin using two different mechanisms (MIM1 mode versus MIM3 mode). Structural comparison revealed that structural features in both MIT and MIM contribute to determine the specific binding mechanism. Within the IST1 MIM sequence, two phenylalanine residues were shown to be important in discriminating MIM1 versus MIM3 binding. These observations enabled us to deduce a preliminary binding code, which we applied to provide CHMP2A, a protein that normally only binds the MIT domain in the MIM1 mode, the additional ability to bind the MIT domain of Spartin in the MIM3 mode. © 2015 by The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Inc.

    The cauchy problem of the Kadomtsev-Petviashvili I (KPI) equation (u t + 6uu x + u xxx ) x = 3u xx can be solved by the inverse scattering method with the following Lax pair iψ y + ψ xx + uψ = 0, ψ t + 4ψ xxx + 6uψ x + 3(u x - i/2∂ -1 x u y )ψ = 0. This problem has been formally solved by Zakharov and Manakov, Fokas and Ablowitz, and Boiti, Leon and Pempinelli. The work of Zakharov and Manakov contains important ideas such as triangular factorizations and the positivity of the scattering operators. The work of Fokas and Ablowitz includes the lump solutions into the inverse scattering scheme. The work of Boiti, Leon and Pempinelli derives systematically the relations among different scattering operators. Ablowitz and Fokas also pointed out recently that the operator ∂ -1 x should have the symmetric form 1/2 ∫ x ∞ -1/2 ∫ ∞ x . The author summarizes this work and other work on the inverse scattering transform for the KPI equation

The quotation from a German translation of John Donne’s poem used in the title of the article is in itself a meaningful phonetic wordplay: “Kein Mensch ist ein Ich-Land” (no man is an “I” land, no man is an island. The main part of the essay includes an interpretation of the television series Lost — Joanna Roszak investigates philosophical references in the series and indicates biblical contexts (“Am I my brother’s keeper?”. A very apt comment to many episodes in the series is, according to the author, the formula told by Z. Herbert’s Fortinbras: Ani nam witać się ani żegnać żyjemy na archipelagach/ A ta woda te słowa cóż mogą cóż mogą” [It is not for us to greet each other or bid farewell we live on archipelagos/ and that water these words what can they do what can they do prince]. It is a similar defencelessness in which the main characters of Lost try to struggle the reality, even if they live together, and die all alone. Collective memory has become a safeguard for the community in the world, which is to be destined for homelessness and forlornness. The other person though becomes a reference point — it is him or her that makes it possible to find the way home.

    Die im Titel genannte Aussage findet sich in den Lebenserinnerungen von Laurent Schwartz (1915-2002), einem der fruchtbarsten Mathematiker, Mitglied der Gruppe Bourbaki. Im Original lautet die Aussage: "un objet concret est un objet abstrait auquel on a fini par s'habituer." Schwartz erläutert sie am Beispiel des Integrals über {e^{-1/2{x^2}}} , das den Wert Wurzel aus 2π hat und in dem sich also die Zahlen e und π verknüpfen. Was Schwartz aber vor allem ausdrücken will, ist dies: Das mathematische Verständnisd geht langsam vor sich und es bedarf der Anstrengung. "Es ist eine Frage der Zeit und der Energie", sagt Schwartz, und gerade dies mache es so schwer, die höhere Mathematik unter das Volk zu bringen. Das Lernen und Lehren von Mathematik laufe eben mühevoll und langsam ab.

    Calpain 7, a mammalian ortholog of yeast Cpl1/Rim13 and fungal PalB, is an atypical calpain that lacks a penta-EF-hand domain. Previously, we reported that a region containing a tandem repeat of microtubule-interacting and transport (MIT) domains in calpain 7 interacts with a subset of endosomal sorting complex required for transport (ESCRT)-III-related proteins, suggesting involvement of calpain 7 in the ESCRT system. Although yeast and fungal calpains are thought to be involved in alkaline adaptation via limited proteolysis of specific transcription factors, proteolytic activity of calpain 7 has not been demonstrated yet. In this study, we investigated the interaction between calpain 7 and a newly reported ESCRT-III family member, increased sodium tolerance-1 (IST1), which possesses two different types of MIT-interacting motifs (MIM1 and MIM2). We found that glutathione-S-transferase (GST)-fused tandem MIT domains of calpain 7 (calpain 7MIT) pulled down FLAG-tagged IST1 expressed in HEK293T cells. Coimmunoprecipitation assays with various deletion or point mutants of epitope-tagged calpain 7 and IST1 revealed that both repetitive MIT domains and MIMs are required for efficient interaction. Direct MIT-MIM binding was confirmed by a pulldown experiment with GST-fused IST1 MIM and purified recombinant calpain 7MIT. Furthermore, we found that the GST-MIM protein enhances the autolysis of purified Strep-tagged monomeric green fluorescent protein (mGFP)-fused calpain 7 (mGFP-calpain 7-Strep). The autolysis was almost completely abolished by 10 mmN-ethylmaleimide but only partially inhibited by 1 mm leupeptin or E-64. The putative catalytic Cys290-substituted mutant (mGFP-calpain 7(C290S)-Strep) showed no autolytic activity. These results demonstrate for the first time that human calpain 7 is proteolytically active, and imply that calpain 7 is activated in the ESCRT system. © 2010 The Authors Journal compilation © 2010 FEBS.

    Full Text Available Hymnology and hymnal studies are working interdisciplinary: History, linguistics, literary science and theology, especially the liturgical perspective, are being brought together and can provide valuable insight to social history and the history of mentality. Unfortunately this potential is rarely seen or acted upon. This paper on Tersteegens song Gott ist gegenwärtig gives an example of the possibilities of hymnology and hymnal studies. It also evinces Tersteegens interdenominational importance as a mystic. In the course of this enquiry terms like ‘pietism’ and ‘mysticism’ are outlined and set into the context of the Enlightment and the history of hymnals. Following this line of thought, it is to be ascertained how suitable the categories ‘pietist’ and ‘mystic’ are to describe Tersteegen and how important singing was to him personally. In the final analysis possible interpretations of Tersteegens song Gott ist gegenwärtig are brought to attention and the reception of his work in several hymn books is illustrated. The history of reception draws from the stock of the hymnal archive of the IAK Gesangbuchforschung.

    The energy transition - the conversion of our power supply to so-called ''Renewable Energy'' - will lead to disaster, economically as well as technically. Although the concept is not technically feasible, more than 500 billion Euros were spent for this purpose already. This money our economy will miss bitterly when it is needed it to go, sweep up the future shambles. Here explain two recognized experts why. ''The book, 'electric power is not the same power' pulled himself together again on a colossal effort. It dissects technically brilliant with the tools of logic, scientific reasoning a fatal mental aberration.''- Arnold Vaatz MP. [German] Die Energiewende - die Umstellung unserer Stromversorgung auf sogenannte ''Erneuerbare Energien'' - wird in eine Katastrophe fuehren, wirtschaftlich ebenso wie technisch.

''Das Buch 'Strom ist nicht gleich Strom' rafft sich noch einmal zu einer ungeheuren Kraftanstrengung auf. Es seziert handwerklich brillant mit den Mitteln der logischen, naturwissenschaftlichen Argumentation einen fatalen geistigen Irrweg.'' - Arnold Vaatz MdB.

    As a result of the UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in 1992 in Rio de Janeiro (''Earth Summit'') the participating nations agreed upon principles of sus-tainable development and objectives for sustainable development - the so called ''Agenda 21'' - to be pursued by national sustainability strategies and be monitored by systems of appropriate relative indicators. The participants shared the awareness that ecological objectives aiming at the global preservation of the natural resources can be achieved only if sustainable economic and social developments are considered together. Unlike the ecological demands of protection of climate and resources, for which evidence can be provided by natural sciences and that can be substantiated by figures, a common under-standing of the social dimension of sustainability has not yet emerged. The same is true for the concept of ''sustainable building''. In the guideline ''Sustainable Building'' published by the Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Housing in 2001, essential instructions regarding the implementation of ob-jectives for ecological construction were compiled for use in practice. This guideline is now to be supplemented by objectives of social sustainability. As a basis for common understanding a definition of the social aspects of sustainable building will be brought forward, which is expected to be broadly acknowledged. Furthermore indicators for the social dimension of sustainability were to be developed so that the observance of socio-cultural aspects of sustainability may be operationalised for new construction as well as refurbishment.

    Wahrend in akademischen Kreisen noch ausgiebig diskutiert wird, wie Naturheilkunde, Komplementarmedizin und Alternativmedizin begrifflich fassbar gemacht, sprich definiert werden konnen, hat sich langst ein Parallelmarkt entwickelt, auf dem seriose und obskure Anbieter eine breite Palette von vermeintlich hilfreichen diagnostischen Massnahmen und Therapien feilbieten. Ohne kassenarztliche Vereinigung, ohne wissenschaftliche Fachgesellschaften, ohne amtlichen Segen. Der Markt boomt, wie das Beispiel rheumatische Erkrankungen zeigt. Das hat seine Grunde, von denen S. Hill in ihrem Kommentar einige nennt. Abstrahiert konnte man sagen, dass es offensichtlich einen grossen Bedarf in Bereichen gibt, fur die die konventionelle Medizin zu wenig zu bieten hat. Die daraus resultierende Tatsache, dass Patienten immer mehr bereit sind, zusatzlich und erganzend Leistungen einzukaufen, musste nicht weiter schrecken (und ware parteienubergreifend sogar ganz im Sinne unserer Gesundheitspolitiker), wenn man unterstellen konnte, Patienten hatten eine einigermassen verlassliche Moglichkeit, seriose Angebote von denen von Quacksalbern, Scharlatanen und miesen Geschaftemachern zu unterscheiden. Das haben Sie aber nicht. Die Beispiele in diesem Journal Club sollen aufzeigen, wie schwer es manchmal selbst dort ist, Stellung zu beziehen, wo bereits Versuche vorliegen, bestimmte Angebote zu hinterfragen. Das liegt nicht zuletzt an den ziemlich durchgangigen Defiziten, was die Forschungsqualitat in diesem Bereich anbelangt.

Our German Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery addresses the field of medically indicated surgical procedures to the benefit of the patient. The field of reconstructive orbital surgery perfectly shows the big advantages in plastic and reconstructive surgery: especially in this field the developments of computer-assisted planning, improvements in biomaterials and the aspect of biologically adequate reconstructive surgery are represented. Due to the fact that this region depends on the appropriate functioning of six cranial nerves the demand for precise reconstructive surgery is obvious. This paper contributes to the understanding of the need for precise preoperative diagnostics, accurate preoperative and virtual planning including intraoperative navigation of blueprints, advances in biomaterials and highly advanced knowledge of the interaction between soft tissue reconstruction and hard tissue reconstruction.

  1. Automated [inservice testing] IST program

    Wright, W.M.

    1990-01-01

    There are two methods used to manage a Section XI program: Manual and Automated. The manual method usually consists of hand written records of test results and scheduling requirements. This method while initially lower in cost, results in problems later on in the life of a plant as data continues to accumulate. Automation allows instant access to forty years of test results. Due to the lower cost and higher performance of todays' personal computers, an automated method via a computer program provides an excellent method for managing the vast amount of data that accumulates over the forty year life of a plant. Through the use of a computer, special functions involving this data are available, which through a manual method would not be practical. This paper will describe some of the advantages in using a computer program to manage the Section XI 1ST program. The ISTBASE consists of program code and numerous databases. The source code is written and complied in CLIPPER (tm) language. Graphing routines are performed by dGE (tm) graphics library. Graphs are displayed in EGA form. Since it was estimated that the total complied code, would exceed 640K of ram, overlays through the use of modular programming were used to facilitate the DOS restrictions of 640K ram. The use of overlays still require the user to gain access to ISTBASE through the PASSWORD module. The database files are designed to be compatible with dBASE III+ (tm) data structure. This allows transfer of data between ISTBASE and other database managers/applications. A math co-processor is utilized to speed up calculations on graphs and other mathematical calculations. Program code and data files require a hard disk drive with at least 28 Meg capacity. While ISTBASE will execute on a 8088 based computer, an 80286 computer with a 12 MHz operating speed should be considered the minimum system configuration

  3. Assessment of Fuel Analysis Methodology and Fission Product Release for 37-Element Fuel by Using the Latest IST Codes during Stagnation Feeder Break in CANDU

    Park, Joo Hwan; Jung, Jong Yeob

    2009-09-01

    Feeder break accident is regarded as one of the design basis accident in CANDU reactor which results in a fuel failure. For a particular range of inlet feeder break sizes, the flow in the channel is reduced sufficiently that the fuel and fuel channel integrity can be significantly affected to have damage in the affected channel, while the remainder of the core remains adequately cooled. The flow in the downstream channel can be more or less stagnated due to a balance between pressure at the break on the upstream side and the reverse driving pressure between the break and the downstream end. In the extreme, this can lead to rapid fuel heatup and fuel damage and failure of the fuel channel similar to that associated with a severe channel flow blockage. Such an inlet feeder break scenario is called a stagnation break. In this report, the fuel analysis methodology and the assessment results of fission product inventory and release during the stagnation feeder break are described for conservatively assumed limiting channel. The accident was assumed to be occurred in the refurbished Wolsong unit 1 and the latest safety codes were used in the analysis. Fission product inventories during the steady state were calculated by using ELESTRES-IST 1.2 code. The whole analysis process was carried out by a script file which was programmed by Perl language. The perl script file was programmed to make all ELESTRES input files for each bundle and each ring based on the given power-burnup history and thermal-hydraulic conditions of the limiting channel and to perform the fuel analysis automatically. The fission product release during the transient period of stagnation feeder break was evaluated by applying Gehl model. The amounts of each isotope's release are conservatively evaluated for additional 2 seconds after channel failure. The calculated fission product releases are provided to the following dose assessment as a source term

    Methods for an ecological orientated revitalisation of former brown coal open-cast mining areas in East Germany are less developed and regarded than questions about stabilisation and economic recultivation technologies. The aim of the research work was to develop a methodical concept which includes proposals for an alternate design of shore lines considering the qualities demanded by species of flora and fauna. One of the most important issues is the use of engineer-biology rather than technical methods to stabilise and design the slopes. Soil, vegetation and species of different sections of six mining lakes were therefore analysed. Certain species of animal were selected in order to plan a current recultivation project on the island called Baerenhofinsel, part of the Goitzsche (Bitterfeld/Sachsen-Anhalt). A design concept to create conditions needed by these aim species was developed and also partly realised. Unfortunately the project could not be finished completely as there was non-predictable delay in the flooding regime. Nevertheless it is an important base for the future revitalisation process of former mining areas. (orig.)

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Intravenous recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA is approved in Europe for use in patients with acute ischaemic stroke who meet strictly defined criteria. IST-3 sought to improve the external validity and precision of the estimates of the overall treatment effects (efficacy and safety of rtPA in acute ischaemic stroke, and to determine whether a wider range of patients might benefit. Design International, multi-centre, prospective, randomized, open, blinded endpoint (PROBE trial of intravenous rtPA in acute ischaemic stroke. Suitable patients had to be assessed and able to start treatment within 6 hours of developing symptoms, and brain imaging must have excluded intracranial haemorrhage and stroke mimics. Results The initial pilot phase was double blind and then, on 01/08/2003, changed to an open design. Recruitment began on 05/05/2000 and closed on 31/07/2011, by which time 3035 patients had been included, only 61 (2% of whom met the criteria for the 2003 European approval for thrombolysis. 1617 patients were aged over 80 years at trial entry. The analysis plan will be finalised, without reference to the unblinded data, and published before the trial data are unblinded in early 2012. The main trial results will be presented at the European Stroke Conference in Lisbon in May 2012 with the aim to publish simultaneously in a peer-reviewed journal. The trial result will be presented in the context of an updated Cochrane systematic review. We also intend to include the trial data in an individual patient data meta-analysis of all the relevant randomised trials. Conclusion The data from the trial will: improve the external validity and precision of the estimates of the overall treatment effects (efficacy and safety of iv rtPA in acute ischaemic stroke; provide: new evidence on the balance of risk and benefit of intravenous rtPA among types of patients who do not clearly meet the terms of the current EU approval; and

    This paper is intended to contribute to the discourse of this book both in a direct and indirect way, in so far as the paper can be searched for the aspects and insight brought in from the perspective of the humanities, and what impact these may have on innovative processes for technological progress. The author refers for instance to aspects of ethics that go beyond the existing concept of ethics of technology, and also refer to the connection between ethics and aesthetics, so as to maintain a wider view encompassing the latter aspects. (orig./CB) [German] Der folgende Beitrag will zum Gesamtthema nicht nur direkt, sondern auch indirekt etwas beitragen, sofern er daraufhin befragt werden kann, was durch eine geisteswissenschaftliche Perspektive ins Spiel kommt und was sich daraus fuer die Innovation von technologischen Entwicklungen ergeben koennte. Dabei ist generell wichtig, dass nicht nur interdisziplinaere Kooperationen (wie zwischen Techniksoziologie und Technologie) eine Rolle spielen, sondern auch das Herausarbeiten bestimmter Aufgaben, die quer zu den Faechern oder Wissenschaftszweigen verlaufen. Das betrifft beispielsweise Aspekte der Ethik, die ueber das hinausgehen, was als Ethik der Technik bisher konzipiert worden ist. Das betrifft auch den Zusammenhang von Ethik und Aesthetik. Dafuer sollte der Blick offen bleiben. (orig.)

    The challenges of the 21st century will mostly be the result of the exploding world population, i.e. increasing instability because of the unequal distribution of wealth, fights over raw materials that are getting scarce, and the destruction of our natural resources. Increasingly, decision-makers are getting aware of the problems. This has consequences also for the process of building construction. For example, sustainability will be given greater attention in projecting and operation of buildings. (orig.)

    A preliminary review of inservice testing effectiveness for Code Class 1,2, and 3 valves at nuclear power plants was performed. These requirements are specified by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Section XI, and the Operations and Maintenance Standard. The Institute of Nuclear Power Operations Nuclear Plant Reliability Data System (NPRDS) database was used to provide failure reports for these components for 1988 to 1992. This time period coincides with the issuance of Generic Letter 89-04, which resulted in a more consistent application of the requirements by the licensees. For this time period, 8,593 valve failures were identified. From the review of the NPRDS database, the primary failure causes and failure modes for motor-operated valves (MOV), air-operated valves (AOV), and check valves (CV) were identified. Solenoid-operated valves were not reviewed in this study. Plant testing programs were effective in identifying approximately 60% of the CV failures, 46% of the AOV failures, and 44% of the MOV failures

    Houses for the 21st century must be optimised in terms of energy saving and, particularly in our latitudes, thermal insulation in the winter. These requirements can be met using innovative heat insulation systems and heat storage components. Recent developments for opaque insulation include super-insulating vacuum insulation panels, while for transparent applications there is ongoing development work on vacuum glazing. Ensuring a high solar input during the cold season and efficient protection against overheating in the warm season falls within the scope of architectural design. It can be facilitated by the use of building components made of micro or macro-integrated latent heat storage materials.

    This final report for the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE), takes a look at how the building process will have to take account of climate change with higher summer temperatures in Switzerland. The authors consider the situation as being in strong contrast to the past in Switzerland, when attention was devoted to energy demand in buildings during the winter. Today there is a new focus with the anticipation of increasingly frequent, extended hot spells in summer. The goal of this investigation is to analyse and present economic measures to assure a high level of summer comfort with a reduced demand for electricity under these changing conditions. Strategies with respect to construction, technology and operation are addressed. The current spread of technically questionable and inefficient room air conditioning units in residential and commercial buildings is considered as being strongly reminiscent of a dangerous, analogous case in the past, when small electric heaters became widespread. A largely untapped potential exists for increasing the efficiency of air conditioning and chiller technologies for both central systems and room units by the careful use of small temperature differences. Several new and unconventional solution paths are discussed, including high-efficiency room air conditioners, solar cooling equipment, balanced mechanical ventilation, phase-change materials, thermal storage, etc., all aimed at reducing electricity consumption. The expected additional electricity demand of around 1.9 TWh annually for ventilation and air conditioning is commented on.

    In Germany, about 480.000 tons of used oil that are collected each year have to be disposed of and utilized. Four used oil utilization processes (re-processing to base oils; re-processing for fuels; thermal utilization in cement works; pressure gasification for the production of synthesis gas or methanol) were evaluated using an eco-balance. The balance boundary comprises on the one hand the utilization processes and their system-related side-processes (provision of energy, production of auxiliaries, waste disposal, transport) and on the other the processes that are substituted by the products recovered from the utilization processes. The impact assessment covers the indicator list of DIN/NAGUS. Furthermore, the accumulation of pollutants in the products is discussed. On the impact assessment level, no clear ranking of options can be derived since each option has its advantages resp. disadvantages in relation to the other. The reduced impacts of the substituted processes are decisive for the ranking of the option. The final ranking of the options is carried out by the Umweltbundesamt (UBA) based on the interpretation logic of the UBA evaluation method for eco-balances. The present study concludes with the processing and preparation of the balance results for such an interpretation (especially the standardization of the results of the impact assessment based on the total impact assessment based on the total impact in Germany). (orig.) [German] In Deutschland sind jaehrlich ca. 480.000 t Altoel, die im Rahmen der gesetzlich geregelten Altoelsammlung anfallen, zu entsorgen und zu verwerten. Vier Verwertungsverfahren fuer Altoel (Aufarbeitung zu Grundoelen; Aufarbeitung zu Brennstoffen; thermische Nutzung in Zementwerken; Druckvergasung zur Herstellung von Synthesegas bzw. Methanol) wurden anhand einer Oekobilanz bewertet. Der Bilanzraum umfasst einerseits die jeweiligen Verwertungsprozesse incl. der systembedingten Nebenprozesse (Energiebereitstellung, Hilfsstoffherstellung, Reststoffentsorgung, Transporte) und andererseits die durch die Verwertungsprodukte substituierten Prozesse. Die Wirkungsabschaetzung umfasst die Indikatorenliste des DIN/NAGUS. Darueber hinaus wurde auch die Frage der Schadstoffanreicherung in den Produkten diskutiert. Auf der Ebene der Wirkungsabschaetzung laesst sich keine klare Rangfolge der Optionen bilden, da jede Option gegenueber der anderen Vor- und Nachteile aufweist. Mehr als die eigentlichen Verwertungsprozesse sind zumeist die eingesparten Wirkungen der substituierten Prozesse ausschlaggebend fuer das Abschneiden der Option. Die Erarbeitung einer Rangfolge erfolgt durch das Umweltbundesamt selbst anhand der Auswertungslogik der UBA-Bewertungsmethode fuer Oekobilanzen. Die vorliegende Studie endet mit der Aufbereitung der Bilanzergebnisse fuer eine solche Auswertung (insb. die Normierung der Ergebnisse der Wirkungsabschaetzung anhand der Gesamtwirkung in Deutschland).

    Full Text Available There is not enough information about Zarîfî Omar Baba in the sources we have studied. According to the available sources Zarîfî Omar Baba, who was from Ruscuk village within the borders of Bulgaria today, participated in Sa’diyye Sect and he ascended to the position of sheikh in this sect. Zarîfî has two works which are mentioned in the biograhical antologies. These are Pend-name and Divan. Yet, in the catalogue searches we have done 7 more works, which are denoted to belong to him, have been identified. These works are: Tasavvuf-nâme, İsm-i A’zam, Kitâb-ı İ'tikâd, Hikâye-yi Kan Kalesi, Beyân-ı Ser-encâm, Kısasu’l-Enbiyâ and Istılahât-ı Mashayikh. As far as we could study, Zarîfî’s works have religion-sufism and moral contents. His work, Istılahât-ı Mashayikh, which has not been mentioned in the sources, is a kind of dictionary of sufism terms. In this work, which starts with 23 verses narrating some religion and sufism themes, 70 sufism terms are explained in all. It is possible to group these terms into two as names and positions. In this work, names and their characteristics are written in prose while positions are written in verse. Firstly in verse, the author explains the name which identifies the qualities and characterisitcs of human being in his own sufistic point. Then in prose, he explains the positions the one, who has the characteristics of this name, will get to. In this article Zarîfî’s life, his literary personality and works; language, style and contents of Istılahât-ı Mashayikh have been examined. Besides, some terms in this work have been compared to other sufism dictionaries in order to clarify that meanings ascribed to the same terms show difference according to sects, tariqah and perhaps according to time and place. Finally, the text of Istılahât-ı Mashayikh has been translated into contemporary letters in accordance with its two copies by critical edition method.

    Die Entscheidung, einen zeit- bzw. ereignisgesteuerten Ansatz für ein Echtzeitsystem zu verwenden, ist schwierig und sehr weitreichend. Weitreichend vor allem deshalb, weil diese beiden Ansätze mit äußerst unterschiedlichen Kontrollflussabstraktionen verknüpft sind, die eine spätere Migration zum anderen Paradigma sehr schwer oder gar unmöglich machen. Wir schlagen daher die Verwendung einer Zwischendarstellung vor, die unabhängig von der jeweils verwendeten Kontrollflussabstraktion ist. Für diesen Zweck verwenden wir auf Basisblöcken basierende Atomic Basic Blocks (ABB) und bauen darauf ein Werkzeug, den Real-Time Systems Compiler (RTSC) auf, der die Migration zwischen zeit- und ereignisgesteuerten Systemen unterstützt.

    The necessity and possibilities of, limits to and the specific instruments employed for green industrial policy are a topic of both scientific and political debate. Economists and politicians can draw on rich resources in dealing with these issues. The contributions contained in this volume are the outcome of a workshop held by the German Federal Environment Agency and the Federal Environment Ministry on the topic of ''Green industrial policy'' on 18 April 2008 in Berlin. Economists and politicians were invited to participate in an expert dialog to locate the topic of green industrial policy within the larger discourses of political economics, deliberate on theoretical motives and practical limits to the concept from an economic viewpoint and discuss possible instruments and fields of action. The workshop focussed on questions relating to the necessity of green industrial policy, the framing of political programmes and the implementation of adopted goals into specific measures.

  11. Green knowledge management to support environmental sustainability; Green knowledge management zur Unterstuetzung oekologischer Nachhaltigkeit

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Dornhoefer, Mareike-Jessica

    2017-01-24

    Sustainability, environmental management and green initiatives are topics which gradually developed into trends since the late 1980s, not only in research institutions, but also in public and private organizations. While the usage of energy and other resources are increasing, these organizations search for new possibilities to reduce the economic, ecologic and social burdens and consequences of office and production environments for employees and nature. While certified environmental management systems were established already in the 1990s, green approaches and technologies are only about 10 years old and steadily developing. Decisions about a fitting strategy and the support of suitable measures inside an organization always require knowledge provided for the decision makers. Furthermore it is of importance to record the environmental consequences of the operational business and to not only record data and information, but to create a context and deduce the knowledge for future activities. Based on this situation, the work addresses the main research question of how �classical'' knowledge management might be further developed or transformed into Green Knowledge Management and how it addresses the goals of sustainability, especially ecological sustainability, environmental management and green approaches alike? The definition of Green Knowledge Management consists of five factors, which are discussed systematically, explored conceptually and documented with the help of practical examples. Different knowledge management models and their respective building blocks are analyzed to deduce how knowledge processes might interact with environmental ones as well as green aspects. Also different types of knowledge management systems are analysed for their application possibilities. A planning and decision making tool in form of a three dimensional cube, the ''Green Knowledge Management Cube'' is introduced on a conceptual level and documented with the help of exemplary implementations. An additional aspect for the development of Green Knowledge Management bases on the intensive analysis of environmental information systems and the possibilities for extending these systems to environmental knowledge systems. The work presents a model of an environmental knowledge system called UmweltWiS. The logic of the system applies semantic technologies to provide a flexible and extensible structure to integrate public linked open data sources with an environmental background. The UmweltWiS concept is designed to be applicable in different application scenarios, in public and private context. This is documented with the help of three use case scenarios of forestry, material science and modern industry 4.0 production environments. At the end of the work it is discussed how Green Knowledge Management may address the recycling and reduction of knowledge to provide possibilities for reusability. The reduction of knowledge supports the prevention of redundant knowledge fragmentation or the usage of outdated knowledge.

    This district office in Goeppingen (Federal Republic of Germany) just had ten months in order to build a completely new administrative building. For the employees of the district's waste company, a house was needed with a gross floor area of 2,020 m{sup 2}. Despite the tight time frame, one correlated to an environmentally friendly and energy-saving concept: The building should consume energy as little as possible in future. The new building was constructed extremely rapidly and is now regarded as a flagship project: it is heated using a geothermal heat pump and seven geothermal probes. A sophisticated system provides for storage and recycling of excess energy.

    The revitalization of historically protected real estate is a passion of the owners - the family Werndl (Rosenheim, Federal Republic of Germany). In the case of the Old spinning mill in the Kolbenmotor near Rosenheim a whole district was arranged new. The highest premise of the planning team Quest Architekten GBR (Rosenheim, Federal Republic of Germany) was to respect and receive the rough charm of the building stock. This also becomes clear considering the two-storey Batteur building of 1862 being a component of the energy centre of the spinning mill. Once cotton was cleaned, now shops and gastronomy are in the ground floor as well as practices and office units in the upper floor.

    Cost, weight and performance are three central factors when it comes to building cars. Modern vehicles are expected to be affordable and light yet at the same time meet high performance and safety standards. This places increasingly high demands on the materials used. The way forward could be hybrid materials, i.e. materials such as LITECOR {sup registered}, an extremely stiff steel/polymer composite that combines the high strength of steel with the low weight of plastic and creates new opportunities for reducing weight in the car body.

    This report for the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) presents the results of a project that examined the courses of study offered by Swiss Universities of Applied Science and the Federal Institutes of Technology that are concerned with the use of energy in the building area. The results of the survey are presented and commented on. The authors are of the opinion that basic courses of study fulfil their task of knowledge-transfer in the areas concerning energy, ecology, environment and sustainability, although the educational structures used are complex. The importance of interdisciplinary work is stressed. The focus of knowledge-transfer on persons under 40 years of age is criticised as well as deficits in interdisciplinary teamwork. The authors recommend the setting-up of further education programmes for older architects and professionals in the building technical services area.

    These proceedings of the 16{sup th} Swiss Status Seminar held in September 2010 at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology ETH in Zurich, Switzerland, present a comprehensive overview of the two-day event on Swiss energy and environmental topics in the building area. A total of 55 lectures in ten sessions covered architectural and building topics. The main lectures at the beginning of the seminar covered models for sustainable city development, building for the 2000-watt society and design principles. Also the 'Tropical House' project, the 'Self' autonomous house, the new Monte Rosa mountaineers hut and the Swiss Village project in Masdar were presented. The presentations were divided into nine thematic areas: The house as a 'power station', building renewal, energy management, heat pumps, processes, innovative building and renovation, city districts, building technologies, ventilation and the building as a system. Twenty poster contributions completed the seminar. Themes addressed in the 'house as a power station' set looked at the local generation of power, buildings that generate or even export energy and low-energy consumption buildings. Building renewal topics discussed included grey energy and legal topics, energy management contributions dealt with control, hot water preparation and energy efficiency. The heat pump section dealt with theory and practice of heating and cooling, multi-functional and low-exergy systems and related calculation aids. The processes section included contributions on infra-red analysis, solar-assisted systems, modelling, eco-balances and the City of Zurich's resource strategy for mineral building materials. Innovative building and renovation topics included renovation with prefabricated elements, integrated photovoltaic modules, retrofits as well as financing topics. The topics covered in the district development set included contributions on sustainable (re-)development, the 2000-watt society and future-oriented housing developments. In the building technology and ventilation area comfort and hygiene aspects as well as a report on a multi-storey office building were presented. Finally, buildings were considered as systems in contributions on performance analysis, property management, active-solar systems and simulation techniques.

    The participation of the Slovak Water Research Institute Bratislava in the project of Research and Technological development (RTD-IST) EU has opened a new chapter of our international co-operation and created for the Slovak Water Team the first opportunity to participate in a very interesting international co-operation. Processing of the exact digital terrain model by the LIDAR technology has been the first ever application in the water research in our company. The obtained data allow us to appreciate advantages (fastness and accuracy) of this method in evaluating calculations of possible flood wave propagation and extension at different discharge scenarios. Moreover, it is important for assessment of possible terrain treatment measures to achieve required protection improvement of selected objects after their classification into individual vulnerability classes or significance of their protection. An important role in the project solving (in terms of basic document processing and data acquisition), additionally to the mentioned organizations, has been played by district flood protection commissions, for which we would like to thank them as well. The project realisation gives the possibility to use obtained data and software for needs of of water management as well as our experience and know-how raising for ur joining similar international project in the future.

This may soon change as the markets of the future will make quite different requirements on solar tracking systems. Many of the solution attempts presented in this market survey suggest that the industry is already aware of this. (orig.)

  6. What is good radiation protection?; Was ist guter Strahlenschutz?

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Lorenz, B. [Lorenz Consulting, Essen (Germany)

    2016-07-01

    Radiation protection is based on the ICRP-System with its pillars justification, limitation and optimization. From this radiation protection should be the same irrespective of the application of radiation. But radiation protection in the nuclear industry is much different from the use of radiation sources or X-ray units. This is by far not due to the different technologies. It originates from the different interpretation of the system. For one person good radiation protection would mean to have no radiation exposures, to avoid radiation at all as best option and to use it only if there are no alternatives. For another person the best radiation protection would be the one which does not produce much efforts and costs. So what is reasonable? In reality the first interpretation prevails, at least in Germany. A change is needed. If we continue to exercise radiation protection as we do it today the beneficial application of radiation will be restricted unduly and might become impossible at all. A stronger orientation towards the naturally occurring radiation would help instead to regulate natural radiation in the same way as it is done for artificial radiation. The system of ICRP has to be changed fundamentally.

    Since 20 years nuclear power plants provider a contribution to the power supply in Germany. In this long period the safety concept has been approved and was completed ever more. Aim of the safety concept is the operational personnel and the population from ionizing (radioactive) radiation, which arises in the nuclear fission itself or is emitted by the radionuclides produced in the nuclear fission. Base of the safety concept is the concerted action of facility safety, safety management, qualification of co-workers, and living safety culture. German nuclear power plants belong concidedly to the worldwide safest. They were and are currently fitted to the progressing status of technology and offer the guarantee that they also during the remaining operational time are operated on the highest safety level.

    Attribution theory has long enjoyed a prominent role in social psychological research, yet religious influences on attribution have not been well studied. We theorized and tested the hypothesis that Protestants would endorse internal attributions to a greater extent than would Catholics, because Protestantism focuses on the inward condition of the soul. In Study 1, Protestants made more internal, but not external, attributions than did Catholics. This effect survived controlling for Protestant work ethic, need for structure, and intrinsic and extrinsic religiosity. Study 2 showed that the Protestant-Catholic difference in internal attributions was significantly mediated by Protestants' greater belief in a soul. In Study 3, priming religion increased belief in a soul for Protestants but not for Catholics. Finally, Study 4 found that experimentally strengthening belief in a soul increased dispositional attributions among Protestants but did not change situational attributions. These studies expand the understanding of cultural differences in attributions by demonstrating a distinct effect of religion on dispositional attributions.

    Background: Third-generation drug-eluting metal stents are the gold standard for treatment of coronary artery disease. The permanent metallic caging of the vessel, however, can result in limited vasomotion, chronic inflammation, and late expansive remodeling, conditions that can lead to late and very late stent thrombosis. The development of bioresorbable scaffolds (BRSs) promises advantages over metal stents due to complete biodegradation within 2–4 years. Theoretically, since vessel scaffolding is temporary and no permanent implant remains in the vessel, BRSs, as opposed to metal stents, once degraded would no longer be potential triggers for stent-related adverse events or side effects. Methods/design: The short- and long-term outcome after implantation of an everolimus-eluting, poly-L-lactic acid-based bioresorbable scaffold system (ABSORB, Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, CA, USA) in the world-wide greatest all-comers cohort will be evaluated in the prospective, non-interventional, multicenter German–Austrian ABSORB RegIstRy (GABI-R). GABI-R will include over 5000 patients from about 100 study sites in Austria and Germany. Safety endpoints such as cardiac death, myocardial infarction, and clinically driven percutaneous or surgical target lesion and vessel revascularization will be evaluated during hospitalization and in the follow-up period (minimum of 5 years). Conclusion: Although two randomized controlled trials and several registries have documented safety and efficacy as well as non-inferiority of this everolimus-eluting ABSORB device compared with drug-eluting metal stents, the current knowledge regarding clinical application, treatment success, and long-term safety of using this BRS in daily routine is limited. Thus, the goal of GABI-R is to address this lack of information. - Highlights: • The GABI-R addresses a lack of data about bioresorbable scaffolds in daily practice. • 5000 patients with minimal in- and exclusion criteria at 100 sites will

    Geben Sie's zu, wir alle fragen gerne mal: „Was ist da drin?“. Und einige, die hören mit dem Fragen einfach nicht mehr auf. Sie haken nach, bis es als Antwort nur noch gibt: „Das war’s, kleiner geht’s nicht mehr.“ Da wo's klein wird, wird die Welt plötzlich ganz verrückt: Aus purer Energie werden Teilchen erzeugt. Materieteilchen bekommen Geschwister aus Antimaterie. Teilchen, die es eigentlich gar nicht geben dürfte, entstehen plötzlich aus dem Nichts. Das ist die Welt der Teilchenphysik. Teilchenphysiker bauen die größten Experimente aller Zeiten, um die kleinsten Teilchen des Universums zu untersuchen. Sie gehen an die Grenzen des technisch Machbaren und überschreiten dabei die Grenzen unserer Länder. Wer das alles auch so spannend findet wie die Teilchenphysiker selbst, ist herzlich eingeladen, dieses Buch zu lesen. Wer glaubt, dass man ohne ein Studium in der Teilchenphysik nichts versteht, der auch. Quantenfeldtheorien, Teilchenbeschleuniger, Higgs-Mechanismus und Co werden hier...

    The experimental and constructive results illustrate that engineering ceramic materials have a high potential in the field of dry running friction systems. According to first estimations, it is possible to build the vehicle clutch 53 % smaller or to transmit up to 180 % higher torque with the same size by an appropriate selection of the system friction pairing and an adequate ceramic design [1, 2]. The friction coefficient characteristic (decreasing friction coefficient above sliding speed) is unfavourable with regard to comfort (self-induced grab oscillations [3]) of the vehicle clutch. Furthermore, it is important to select the test procedure of the experimental analyses to be as close to the system as possible in order to obtain exact information concerning the target system. (Abstract Copyright [2005], Wiley Periodicals, Inc.) [German] Die experimentellen und konstruktiven Ergebnisse haben gezeigt, dass ingenieurkeramische Werkstoffe ein hohes Potenzial im Bereich der trockenlaufenden Friktionssysteme haben. Durch geeignete Wahl der Systemreibpaarung und eine keramikgerechte Konstruktion ist es nach ersten Abschaetzungen moeglich, die Kfz-Kupplung um 53 % kleiner zu bauen bzw. bei gleicher Groesse bis zu 180 % hoehere Drehmomente zu uebertragen [1, 2]. Die Reibungszahlcharakteristik (fallende Reibungszahl ueber Gleitgeschwindigkeit) ist im Hinblick auf Komfort (selbsterregte Rupfschwingungen [3]) fuer die Kraftfahrzeugkupplung unguenstig. Des Weiteren ist es wichtig, die Versuchsfuehrung der experimentellen Untersuchungen so systemnah wie moeglich zu waehlen, um genauere Aussagen auf das Zielsystem zu erhalten.

    The present contribution focuses on the input side of individual process techniques. It shows on the basis of example calculations how two parameters describing the incinerable (residual) waste that are of particular importance for unconventional thermal treatment methods, namely ``pollutant load`` and ``calorific value``, can be influenced by a recycling stage and then further by mechanical-biological pretreatment. [Deutsch] Im folgenden soll das Hauptaugenmerk auf die Inputseite zu den einzelnen thermischen Verfahren gelegt werden und anhand einer Beispielrechnung aufgezeigt werden, wie sich die fuer einen Einsatz in nichtkonventionellen thermischen Verfahren besonders wichtigen Parameter des aufbereiteten (Rest)Abfalls `Schadstoffbelastung` und `Heizwert` zunaechst durch eine Verwertung und weiter durch eine mechanisch-biologische Vorbehandlung veraendern.

    Together the weir power plant and the upgrading measures will create salient ecological improvements of the actual conditions of the residual water route. Of special importance are the increased runoff into the Old Rhine and the additional structuring measures. The natural evasion waters combined with the Collection Gallery and the Vertical Slot fish ladder together with the new fish ladder at the Main Power Station will on one hand greatly improve the longitudinal continuum and on the other hand create habitats for species relying on strong-flowing waters.

    This paper presents the results of simplified life cycle assessments (LCA) of the cultivation of a variety of crops suitable for biogas production. The simplification refers to that only greenhouse gases and the cumulated energy requirements (CER) are regarded. The values for the greenhouse gas emissions expressed as CO{sub 2} equivalents are around 130 g CO{sub 2}eq.kg{sup -1} ODM with lowest value of 75.5 g CO{sub 2}eq.kg{sup -1} ODM for hemp (Cannabis sativa) and the highest value of 170 g CO{sub 2}eq.kg{sup -1} ODM for rape (Brassica napus). Considering electric power as final product and referring therefore on kWh as unit the differences become even greater, mainly because of the different methane production potentials. On this basis the lowest value amounts to 84 g CO{sub 2}eq.kWh{sup -1} for alfalfa (Medicago sativa) and the highest value amounts to 438 g CO{sub 2}eq.kWh{sup -1} for rape. This general trend that the LCA identifies hemp, forage grass (Dactylis, Lolium and Festuca species), alfalfa, and maize (Zea mays) to have a low ecologic input and rape to have a high ecologic input is confirmed regarding the CER. The CER values are lowest with 0.82 MJ.kWh{sup -1} for maize and forage grass and highest with 3.47 MJ.kWh{sup -1} for rape. (orig.)

    Fluvial fishes are good indicators of the habitat quality in river systems. However, no quantitative data about the relationships between the ecomorphology of the Elbe River and its fish community were available. Therefore, fish ecological assessments or predictions of the development of the fish populations were not possible. Since March 1997, a project financed by the Federal Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Technology focuses on mathematical modelling of the habitat used of all life history stages of the fish fauna. The results of the project shall support decisions in the framework of changing ecomorphology in the Elbe River. (orig.)

    Mobility is a prerequisite for numerous economic and private activities and thus a central component of our life. The demand for mobility in Germany is predominantly covered by the road traffic. The Institute for Energy and Environmental Research (Heidelberg, Federal Republic of Germany) carried out an ecologic accompanying research in the course of a fleet test in order to determine the potentials of environmental improvement of the vehicles tested in a field test. These potentials were perpetuated for future serial vehicles and projected to Germany. The main themes of this contribution are: (a) Production and disposal of plug-in-hybrids; (b) The TwinDrive in the fleet test; (c) Plug-in-hybrid serial vehicles 2020; (d) Perspective of electromobility in Germany 2030; (e) Strategic evaluation of the electomobility.

    The valuable characteristics of household biowaste are the content of plant nutrients, mainly phosphorus, and of native organic matter or carbon. Processed to compost, the application to soils can be of high ecological value. Without losses of compost quality, the process can be combined with energy production if a fermentation is integrated into the concept. Recovery systems have to be designed with optimum effects, combining high emission standards with a high effectivity, e.g. of the biogas exploitation. If this is guaranteed, the separate collection and recovery of biowastes have advantages in almost all environmental aspects compared to systems without biowaste collection. (orig.)

    This final report for the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) deals with the results of a study that evaluated the environmental impact of the entire production chain of fuels made from biomass and used in Switzerland. Firstly, the study supplies an analysis of the possible environmental impacts of biofuels that can be used as a basis for political decisions. Secondly, an environmental life cycle assessment (LCA) of various biofuels is presented. In addition, the impacts of fuel use are compared with other uses for bioenergy such as the generation of electricity and heat. The methods used in the LCA are discussed, including the Swiss method of ecological scarcity (Environmental Impact Points, UBP 06), and the European Eco-indicator 99 method. The results of the study are discussed, including the finding that not all biofuels can reduce environmental impacts as compared to fossil fuels. The role to be played by biofuels produced in an environmentally-friendly way together with other forms of renewable energy in our future energy supply is discussed.

    This final report for the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) reports on new developments in the Combined Heat and Power (CHP) generation area. The objective of this study is an ecological and technical evaluation of various CHP systems and system combinations. These also include suitable combinations with other technologies. Systems for five different temperature levels are quantified according to their environmental impact. Various possible applications are compared with a highly efficient reference system using separate heat and power generation - a combined-cycle plant and a heat pump. For chilled water production a combination of the CHP system with an absorption chiller is investigated. The results of the investigations are presented and commented on. Also, advantageous applications of CHP systems are noted.

    The discussions of the years past have contributed much enlightenment to the handling of organic waste. The operators of sewage treatment plant are welcoming the elaboration of a basis for the official licencing procedure in the short term. The now available results of this year-long large-scale experiment, which confirm all preliminary investigations, impressively corroborate the claim that co-fermentation makes ecological and economic sense provided defined boundary conditions are complied with. (orig.) [German] Die Diskussion der letzten Jahre hat viel Klarheit in den Umgang mit organischen Abfaellen gebracht.

    In a difficult economic situation where the problems of many companies to adapt to changed economic conditions threaten to supersede ecological interests the Council of Experts appointed by the Federal Environment Minister submitted its 1994 environmental expertise. This scientific political counseling document would deserve little attention if it was limited to the appeal of considering pollution control as an integrated part of all political activities or if it only contained a catalog of measures for the ecological repair of technico-industrial faults and failures. The structural change of economy and the necessity of ecological modernization, however, are taken into account by representing an ecological-economic model which contributes to a long-term conceptional orientation of environmental policy and which is elaborate enough to be suited for the development of solutions to concrete problems. The main points of the expertise are discussed.

    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.)

[German] Neben der Wirtschaftlichkeit ist entsprechend der im Kreislaufwirtschafts- und Abfallgesetz verankerten Regelungen auch die Umweltvertraeglichkeit von Verwertung, Abfallbeseitigung und Abfallvermeidung gefordert. Zur Entscheidungsunterstuetzung bei der strategischen Planung zukuenftiger Entsorgungskonzepte sind somit Instrumente erforderlich, die es ermoeglichen, auf regionaler Ebene firmenuebergreifende Entsorgungsstrukturen zu entwickeln sowie diese oekonomisch und oekologisch im Sinne des KrW/-AbfG zu optimieren und zu bewerten. Derartige umfassende Planungsinstrumente zum Stoffstrommanagement stehen derzeit nicht oder nur in Ansaetzen zur Verfuegung. Fuer die vorliegende Arbeit wurde die Entsorgung von kommunalem Klaerschlamm in Baden-Wuerttemberg als Untersuchungsgegenstand ausgewaehlt. Ziel der vorliegenden Arbeit ist es, ein Planungsinstrument zur oekonomischen und oekologischen Ausgestaltung standortuebergreifender Entsorgungsnetzwerke zu entwickeln. Ausgangspunkt dafuer sind bisherige Ansaetze zur Entwicklung kostenminimaler regionaler Gesamtloesungen, die an die geschilderte Problematik angepasst und die in geeigneter Weise um eine Methodik zur umweltbezogenen Bewertung erweitert werden sollen.

In fact, if heating and water heating are taken into account, the total amounts to more than 80 percent. This shows the necessity of making heating more energy-efficient and ecological. Heat pumps are an interesting solution. The contribution investigates their efficiency in real conditions, both in new and older buildings, and also goes into the possibility of optimization during installation, control and operation. The contribution is based on the long-term heat pump monitoring projects of Fraunhofer Institut fuer Solare Energiesysteme ISE of Freiburg. [German] In den deutschen Haushalten werden rund 30 % der Endenergie verbraucht. Obwohl der Bedarf fuer die Heizung oftmals unterschaetzt wird, entfallen in den Haushalten auf die Bereiche Raumwaerme und Warmwasser tatsaechlich mehr als 80 % des Energieverbrauches. Angesichts des fortschreitenden Klimawandels sowie der Ressourcenknappheit ist es dringend notwendig, die notwendige Heizenergie moeglichst effizient und oekologisch bereitzustellen. Die Waermepumpentechnologie ist in der Lage diesen Anforderungen gerecht zu werden. Wie effizient allerdings sind die Waermepumpenanlagen unter realen Bedingungen sowohl bei Neubauten als auch bei Bestandsgebaeuden? Oder: welche Optimierungsmoeglichkeiten bestehen bei Installation, Regelung sowie Betrieb von Waermepumpenanlagen? Um diese Fragen beantworten zu koennen, fuehrt das Fraunhofer Institut fuer Solare Energiesysteme ISE aus Freiburg seit mehreren Jahren umfangreiche Monitoringprojekte durch in denen Waermepumpenanlagen im Mittelpunkt der Untersuchung stehen.

    The activities of the regional government of Northrhine-Westfalia concerning a regulating framework for the co-fermentation of several types of biological waste in sewage plants comprise a LCA-type valuation. This shall illuminate the ecological pros and cons of this way of treatment related to the casual alternatives (e.g. composting or waste fermentation). The LCA has been adopted to waste management belongings. The results show an ecological equivalency between the co-fermentation and its alternative ways of recovery for most of the investigated types of waste. Especially those which arose by food production. A co-fermentation of municipal biowaste turns out to be relatively disadvantageous. Strong influence is due to the single case frame conditions like the content of pollutants, the way of sewage sludge disposal, technical conditions of the sewage plant, even also distances of delivery. (orig.) [German] Die Aktivitaeten des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen zur Regelung der Mitbehandlung diverser biogener Abfaelle in Faulbehaeltern von Klaeranlagen wurden durch eine umfassende oekobilanzielle Bewertung begleitet. Dabei galt es, die oekologische Sinnhaftigkeit dieser Art der Verwertung im Vergleich zu den ueblichen Entsorgungsalternativen je nach Abfall zu bestaetigen bzw. zu widerlegen. Als Bewertungsmethode wurde der Oekobilanzansatz mit Anpassung an abfallwirtschaftliche Fragestellungen herangezogen. Im Ergebnis zeigt sich die Co-Fermentation bei vielen Abfaellen - insbesondere solchen aus der Nahrungsmittelproduktion - den Alternativen gegenueber (z.B. der Kompostierung oder der Nassvergaerung) als oekologisch gleichwertig. Vergleichsweise unguenstig ist die Situation dagegen bei haeuslichem Bioabfall. Die Randbedingungen der Verwertung sind im Einzelfall vielfach von entscheidendem Einfluss auf das Oekobilanzergebnis, wie z.B. der konkrete Schadstoffgehalt, die Art der Klaerschlammentsorgung, technische Randbedingungen auf den Klaeranlagen, aber auch

    This study compares different technologies for the treatment of biogenic wastes, including open windrow and enclosed tunnel composting, anaerobic digestion, the combination of both these methods and burning in waste incineration plants. The methods are compared from the points of view of environmental impact, energy use and production, and economics. The environmental impact, calculated for normalised quantities of waste using the 'Ecoindicator 95+' tool, are discussed and the methane and carbon dioxide emissions of the different methods of treatment are compared. Also, the considerable differences to be found in the energy balances of the different systems are discussed in the light of efforts to substitute nuclear and fossil-fuel generated power. Cost and energetic comparisons are also made between compost and artificial fertilisers. The report is concluded with recommendations for adapting bio-technological methods for the treatment of wastes with an emphasis on anaerobic processes.

    Against the background of an increased use of residual and waste materials in this paper the specific GHG emissions and production costs of different lignocellulosic based bioethanol concepts are assessed and compared to a conventional wheat based bioethanol concept and to the fossil reference. In order to find the best concept regarding both the environment and the economics the GHG emissions and production costs are compared and the GHG mitigation costs are calculated. Concept 5 (reference concept with C5 sugar to bioethanol and a natural gas-/biogasboiler) could be a good compromise between the both targets. Furthermore this concept has lower GHG emissions and lower production costs compared to the conventional wheat based bioethanol concept.

    A possibility to supply energy from gaseous biomass is the generation of biogas and bio-SNG, respectively, with a subsequent conditioning to bio methane which can be fed in into the natural gas distribution system. Under this aspect, the author of the book under consideration reports on how the conventionally used natural gas can be substituted by the biogas. It is investigated whether the transformation of biogas or bio-SNG to bio methane is worthwhile under economic and ecologic aspects. It is also investigated to what extend natural gas can be exchanged by bio methane under consideration of the technical and legal frameworks.

    This final report for the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) presents the results of a project in which two methods of dealing with solvent wastes were compared - distillation or incineration. The results of an analysis made of two case studies, a waste-solvent incineration plant and a batch distillation column, are presented. These were used to develop a simplified evaluation model for the two methods. The three methods used for the analysis of environmental impact are described - Eco-Indicator 99, ecological scarcity and primary energy demand. The authors note that the distillation model cannot be generally applied as the process is very dependent on the particular mixture of solvents being distilled and that the energy assessment method is dependent on the particular form of energy substituted by the energy produced in the incineration system. The evaluation model developed was used for 5 different mixtures of solvents. The results of the project show that apart from the availability of an accurate evaluation model, the life-cycle inventories for petrochemical production of solvents are limited and may compromise the applicability of the model to other mixtures of solvents.

    The use of the energetic and mass potentials of biological wastes in an integrated fermentation and composting plant needs extensive conceptual and planning activities. The call for tenders for the construction of plants is an EU-wide open procedure. Public waste management organizations are interested to receive profitable solutions with reliable operation and minimized ecological impacts. The minimum requirements and technical aspects are defined by the public waste management organizations.

    The use of rivers for generating electric power and the efforts to conserve important ecological habitats mark a classic conflict between two different aims of society. While passing hydropower plants migrating fish risk injuries and death. This affects the development of fish populations, particularly of diadromous fish populations in river basins. The aim of this study was to find conditions for serving a self sustaining fish population in the Weser basin. The influence of the river continuity and the quality of spawning and nursery habitats were varied. The survival rates of the diadromous species salmon and eel were modeled on the basis of literature data and additional data from own investigations. A self-reproducing salmon population would require the upstream and downstream passibility at each obstacle. Especially the protection at hydropower plants in the tributaries is of major importance. In addition, the hydro-morphological conditions of the spawning habitats have to be improved and further losses (such as predation or fishing) must be decreased. The survival rate of 40%, required by the EC Regulation on European eel can be achieved by the establishment of upstream continuity at all sites and by protective measures at the hydropower plants in the tributaries of the Weser.

    For years the signs indicating a disastrous dying of trees have been increasing. Environmental associations talk about a 'national cultural disaster'. An 'ecological holocaust' feared by so many would have fatal consequences for water, air, many animal and plant species and, of course, for mankind itself. Forestry already suffers major losses. The legal sciences have so far kept away from any attempt to cope with the death of the forest. This is to be regretted all the more as it has been instrumental in laying down the law caused the critical situation of the forest. In this book authors with different scientific backgrounds discuss the problems in order to find new legal remedies for the ailing forest. An 'ecological orientation' of the law appears to be a necessity.

    Lime plays an important role in environmental protection. Not only due to its properties but also due to its natural occurrence, it is suitable and accepted for universal application in the environment sector. Lime and its refined products can be used in various processes to remove the acid gases, the gaseous metal compounds and organic trace constituents from the flue gas of waste incineration plants. The choice of the suitable process depends on the raw gas load, the separation efficiency to be achieved and the way of recovery of the reaction product obtained as a result of flue gas cleaning. The dry sorption processes have been established for many years and have been continuously further developed, in which lime is injected into the flue gas flow and the reaction product is retained via a filtering separator. As an alternative to lime products, it is also possible, under certain boundary conditions, to use sodium hydrogen-carbonate NaHCO{sub 3} (below called sodium bicarbonate) as a basic reaction component in the dry sorption process. As opposed to calcium hydroxide, there are differences, for example as regards the reaction temperature required and the necessary amount of sorbent to achieve the desired purification effect.

He discusses very comprehensively the results of a study performed on behalf of the Shell company. The study encompasses two scenarios based on the same predicted growth of the global human population from 1999 until 2060, and the resulting global demand for energy, but assuming different levels of market penetration and technological development of power generation from RES. Their respective final energy balance statements are very different. The scenario 'sustainable development' predicts market shares of renewable energy sources up to 50% of global demand, whereas the scenario 'dematerialization' predicts a maximum of 30%.

Beide Szenarien gehen von der gleichen Bevoelkerungsentwicklung (zehn Milliarden Menschen im Jahre 2060, gegenueber fuenf Milliarden in 1990) und von dem gleichem Wirtschaftswachstum (drei Prozent pro Jahr) aus, die Energiebilanz sieht jedoch unterschiedlich aus. In beiden Szenarien werden sich die regenerativen Energien im Rahmen eines Reifeprozesses weiterentwickeln, indem sie zunaechst Marktnischen besetzen und sich dann mit unterschiedlichem Erfolg im Markt durchsetzen. Im Szenario 'Nachhaltiges Wachstum' geht die Studie davon aus, dass Produktivitaetsfortschritte bei der Energiebereitstellung zu einem erheblichen Angebot an regenerativen Energietraegern fuehren wird (bis zu 50% des Weltbedarfs).

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available While the antagonism of modernism to realism has often been commented upon, its equally vehement rejection of romanticism has not been as widely discussed. Yet, if modernism compromised at times with realism or, at least, with a "naturalistic" version of realism, its total antipathy to the fundamentals of romanticism has been absolute. This was a modernist trend that covered both literature and criticism and a modernist characteristic that extended from German philosophers, French poets to British and American professors of literature. Names as diverse as Paul Valery, Charles Maurras and F.R. Leavis shared a common anti-romantic outlook. Many of the important modernist literary trends like the Anglo-American imagism, French surrealism, German expressionism and Italian futurism have been antagonistic not only to ordinary realism as a relic of the 19th century, but also, and fundamentally, to that century's romanticism. In nihilistically breaking with everything from the past, or at least the immediate past, they were by definition anti-romantics. Even writers like Bernard Shaw or Bertolt Brecht and critics like Raymond Williams or George Lukacs, who would generally be regarded as in the pro-realist camp, have, at times, exhibited, to the extent that they were afflicted with the modernist ethos, strong anti-romantic tendencies.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Matthias Brütsch

    2013-06-01

    Full Text Available Comparing the narrativity of different texts within a given medium usually implies a focus on the narrated and how the story is structured by the discourse. Comparing the narrativity of different media, on the other hand, requires both an examination of the way the story is presented as well as of questions of mediacy and narrative agency. Addressing the second topic, this paper seeks to classify transmedial comparisons according to their criteria for evaluating narrativity and to examine positions which regard literature as a medium possessing a higher degree of narrativity or in a stricter sense than film and drama. Wolf Schmid’s model of narrative constitution serves as a theoretical framework for the critical review of this claim, and the exceptional case of backward narration is discussed in exemplifying central points of the argument put forth here.

    2001-01-01

    In Japan, METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry) periodic inspections are conducted every 13 months in accordance with the EUIL (Electric Utility Industry Law) for light water reactors. On the other hand, during operation, many kinds of function tests are conducted in accordance with Technical Specifications or utilities voluntary test procedures. However, these maintenance activities during outages are in other respects considered too costly and more than necessary because of its predetermined maintenance interval and its old-fashioned full scope maintenance menu. In these circumstances, the ASME O and M Codes and Standards, which are applied to nuclear power plants in the United States, came to be one of the issues to be considered among Japanese utilities. This is because the ASME O and M Codes and Standards, which are developed to verify the operational readiness of equipment or systems by condition based maintenance or performance testing without overhauls, will be considered to suggest a rational alternative to our existing maintenance activities. Because there had been no standard for function tests other than the METI inspection procedures in Japan, activities started for the development of Japanese Operation and Maintenance Guideline (hereinafter called the Japanese OM Guideline or the Guideline) for function tests and condition monitoring. The Japanese OM Guideline is not proclaimed for regulatory use, but the long-term objective is to provide a substantial basis to change the current maintenance activities including regulatory inspection. The Guideline is composed of five parts, which are general requirements, pumps, valves, snubbers and ECCS systems. This paper gives a summary of the ECCS part of the Japanese OM Guideline, in particular, focusing on the differences between the Guideline and the ASME O and M Standards, and topics or discussion during their establishment.

  11. Zur Historie der nominalen -er-Bildungen. Ist die Suffixidentität sprachwandlerischer Zufall?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Bittner, Dagmar

    2004-01-01

    Full Text Available The various different occurrences of -er in the morphology of German (e.g. in agentive and instrumental nouns, in comparatives, iteratives and intensifiers are generally treated as being homonymous. In other words, just as in the case of full lexemes (e.g. Kiefer(knochen 'jaw bone' vs. Kiefer(baum 'fir tree', it is assumed that different suffixes exist and that it is merely coincidental that they have an identical phonetic realisation. As far back as Germanic, the source of this identity-of-form has been taken to lie in reduction of the final syllable, whereby the process of phonological reduction has created identical suffixes from ones that were previously formally distinct. Our aim is to illustrate that in the case of nominal -er forms, there is good reason not to attribute identity of form simply to the 'blind application' of phonological rules. On the one hand, there are various aspects of the historical development which simply cannot be accounted for by recourse to phonological rules. This will be made clear through analysis of historical grammars and related literature. On the other hand, those categories that are formed with -er share common grammatico-semantic features. This too is often hinted at in the historical grammars and may be corroborated by an analysis of the grammatical features involved. Our findings thus motivate the following claim: The emergence of identical forms is not coincidental. Rather, alongside phonological rules, the emergence of identical forms is driven by more global principles of structure-formation, in particular by the principle of 'one form = one function'. Instead of different -er suffixes, there is in fact just one suffix which symbolises the iterative feature structure common to the -er marked categories.

    Stadelmann, M.

    2008-07-01

    In this article, certain prejudices are examined that are often encountered when the performance of so-called 'condensing' gas-fired heating boilers is discussed. The boundary conditions necessary for the condensation of the water vapour in the heating boiler's flue gasses are examined. The hydraulics and the flow and return temperatures of heating systems are discussed - this with reference to obtaining sufficiently low return temperatures for the condensation to occur. The adjustment of heating-water flow in the heating system in general is discussed. Such adjustments in the hydraulics of heating systems can help save a lot of heating energy and also assure that the heating system's circulation pump does not consume too much power. Professionals are quoted as saying that the majority of heating systems have never been properly adjusted hydraulically.

    1997-12-01

    The environmental advantages of a district heating network using geothermal energy are obvious. On the other hand utilizing geothermal energy is considered to be very expensive. The goal of this paper is to compare the costs of geothermal energy with other renewable energy sources. Based on the costs of realized plants and projects the following energy sources have been analysed. Geothermal energy, water of tunnel-drainage, waste heat of a sewage disposal platn and waste wood. All plants have a district heating network. The results are a contribution to the actuel discussion about public subsiding of geothermal energy. (orig.) [Deutsch] Die oekologischen Vorteile einer geothermischen Fernwaermeversorgung sind fuer jeden, der Bohrungen in Erwaegung zieht, unschwer erkennbar. Wie steht es aber mit den Kosten einer geothermischen Nutzung? Hier beleben Horrorzahlen wie auch Wunschdenken die Diskussionen. Der Artikel beabsichtigt einen sachlichen Beitrag zu dieser Diskussion uz liefern. Konkrete Bauprojekte im Megawattbereich der GRUNEKO AG werden kostenmaessig nach gleichen Kriterien analysiert und verglichen. Auf goethermischer Seite wird ein Doublettensystem und eine Tunnelwasserwaermenutzung kostenmaessig analysiert. Als Quervergleich werden ebenfalls GRUNEKO-Projekte mit regenerierbaren Energietraegern herangezogen (Holzschnitzelanlage, Klaeranlagenabwaerme, Seewasser-Abkuehlung). Alle Analgen haben Waermeverteilnetze. Die nachgewiesenen Kostendifferenzen zwischen Geothermie und anderen regenerativen Waermversorgungen koennten einen Beitrag leisten zu der gegenwaertig aktuellen `Ueberpruefung staatlicher Foerderungsmassnahmen zugunsten einer verstaerkten Nutzung der Geothermie`.

    Electroplating industries are the main sources of heavy metals, chromium, nickel, lead, zinc, cadmium and copper. The highest concentrations of chromium (VI) in the effluent cause a direct hazards to human and animals. Therefore, there is a need of an effective and affordable biotechnological solution for removal of chromium from electroplating effluent. Bacterial strains were isolated from electroplating effluent to find out higher tolerant isolate against chromate. The isolate was identified by 16S rDNA sequence analysis. Absorbed chromium level of bacterium was determined by inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectrometer (ICP-AES), atomic absorption spectrophotometer (AAS), scanning electron microscope (SEM), transmission electron microscope (TEM) and energy dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX). Removal of metals by bacterium from the electroplating effluent eventually led to the detoxification of effluent confirmed by MTT assay. Conformational changes of functional groups of bacterial cell surface were studied through Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. The chromate tolerant isolate was identified as Bacillus cereus. Bacterium has potency to remove more than 75% of chromium as measured by ICP-AES and AAS. The study indicated the accumulation of chromium (VI) on bacterial cell surface which was confirmed by the SEM-EDX and TEM analysis. The biosorption of metals from the electroplating effluent eventually led to the detoxification of effluent. The increased survivability of Huh7 cells cultured with treated effluent also confirmed the detoxification as examined by MTT assay. Isolated strain B. cereus was able to remove and detoxify chromium (VI). It would be an efficient tool of the biotechnological approach in mitigating the heavy metal pollutants.

    The NGC 1999 reflection nebula features a dark patch with a size of 10 000 AU, which has been interpreted as a small, dense foreground globule and possible site of imminent star formation. We present Herschel PACS far-infrared 70 and 160 μm maps, which reveal a flux deficit at the location of the globule. We estimate the globule mass needed to produce such an absorption feature to be a few tenths to a few {M}⊙. Inspired by this Herschel observation, we obtained APEX LABOCA and SABOCA submillimeter continuum maps, and Magellan PANIC near-infrared images of the region. We do not detect a submillimer source at the location of the Herschel flux decrement; furthermore our observations place an upper limit on the mass of the globule of 2.4×10-2 {M}⊙. Indeed, the submillimeter maps appear to show a flux depression as well. Furthermore, the near-infrared images detect faint background stars that are less affected by extinction inside the dark patch than in its surroundings. We suggest that the dark patch is in fact a hole or cavity in the material producing the NGC 1999 reflection nebula, excavated by protostellar jets from the V 380 Ori multiple system. Herschel is an ESA space observatory with science instruments provided by European-led Principal Investigator consortia and with important participation from NASAThis publication includes data acquired with the Atacama Pathfinder Experiment (APEX; proposal E-082.F-9807 and E-284.C-5015).

    The decommissioning of a nuclear power plant poses a significant challenge for the operating company. The business model is turned upside down and a working culture developed for power operation has to be adapted while necessary know- how for the upcoming tasks has to be built up. The trauma for the employees induced by the final plant shut-down has to be considered and respected. The change of working culture in the enterprise has to be managed and the organization has to be prepared for the future. Here the methods of Change-Management offer a systematic and effective approach. Confidence in the employee's competencies is one of the key success factors for the change into the future.

    The final storage of radioactive waste and spent fuel in Germany - who, in Germany, has any interest in this subject, especially now that the new Atomic Energy Act has been adopted, and who is going to read this article? The author, Professor Klaus Kuehn, examines this question, analyzing in his contribution the current situation and the points of view of those who may be interested in this topic. In Prof. Kuehn's opinion, the addresses in particular are these: - the federal government, - the opposition in the federal parliament, - the federal states, - the Federal Ministry for the Environment, - the Federal Ministry for Research, - the Federal Ministry of Economics, - the Federal Office for Radiation Protection, - the operators of nuclear power plants, - the Working Group Elaborating Procedures for Selecting Repository Sites (AkEnd). Klaus Kuehn concludes that there is little interest at the present time in the subject of Final Storage in Germany, for reasons explained in detail which result both from the political constellation and from existing constraints. (orig.) [German] Die Endlagerung radioaktiver Abfaelle: 'Wer in Deutschland interessiert sich eigentlich fuer dieses Thema? Insbesondere jetzt, nach der Verabschiedung des neuen Atomgesetzes?

    2008-07-15

    The paper provides a detailed analysis of the current situation on waste management in Germany and identifies 10 arguments on the issue that waste incineration and waste prevention are not contradiction in terms. The following topics are discussed within this frame: waste prevention in production and consumption; resource-efficient products; offsetting of efficiency gains by growth of volume; consumer behavior, need of waste management; influence of long-term waste management contracts; product responsibility; highest recovery rates despite incineration of residual waste; precise sorting as a prerequisite for recovery. It is concluded that waste incineration with energy generation and utilization of slag is an environmentally sound option.

    In 2013 Germany saw 33.8 billion kWh more of electricity leaving the country than coming in. This is more than 5% of its gross electricity production and the greatest electricity surplus the country has ever achieved. Germany's surplus in the first quarter of 2014 runs to 13.2 billion kWh, so fundamental changes in the balance are not to be expected. In the public debate high net export rates are often indiscriminately attributed to excessive production capacity or to unnecessary electricity production from individual energy carriers. However, such monocausal explanations are too simple. What is needed is a closer analysis of the causes, action mechanisms and functions of cross-border electricity transmission and consideration of the technical and market-dependent factors in a European context.

  3. Ist der Euro gefährdet? Is the European currency euro put at risk?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Due to high national debt in several member states of the Euro-Currency-Area which led to huge relief programmes the single European currency Euro seems to be at risk. Bur neither inflation rates nor exchange rate movements of the Euro since 1999 up to 2011 give reasons to believe that an up to now success story of the Euro will come to a sudden end in shortness. On the other hand it often had been argued that increasing national debt will inevitably lead to higher inflation rates and will endanger a currency by permanent devaluation. But the institutional and legal framework of the European monetary policy, if used correctly, will give sufficient protection against inflation pressure due to increasing national debt. The most danger for the European currency or for the European-Currency-Area can be seen in drifting apart of national competiveness between the member states of the Euro- Area, especially due to an existing lack of coordination in wage policy. Different wage policies in the member states of the Euro-Area in the past had led to different national inflation rates and had caused calculated real exchange rate movements which had lasting influence on national competiveness, which hamper international trade in the case of real appreciation or which promote international trade in the case of real depreciation..

    We present a concept for a kinetic impactor demonstration mission, which intends to change the spin rate of a previously-visited asteroid, in this case 25143 Itokawa. The mission would determine the efficiency of momentum transfer during an impact, and help mature the technology required for a kinetic impactor mission, both of which are important precursors for a future space mission to deflect an asteroid by collisional means in an emergency situation. Most demonstration mission concepts to date are based on changing an asteroid's heliocentric orbit and require a reconnaissance spacecraft to measure the very small orbital perturbation due to the impact. Our concept is a low-cost alternative, requiring only a single launch. Taking Itokawa as an example, an estimate of the order of magnitude of the change in the spin period, δP, with such a mission results in δP of 4 min (0.5%), which could be detectable by Earth-based observatories. Our preliminary study found that a mission concept in which an impactor produces a change in an asteroid's spin rate could provide valuable information for the assessment of the viability of the kinetic-impactor asteroid deflection concept. Furthermore, the data gained from the mission would be of great benefit for our understanding of the collisional evolution of asteroids and the physics behind crater and ejecta-cloud development.

    In 2011 Mongolia experienced an economic boom with growth recorded at 17.5% (1). This was triggered by the start of the first phase of the Oyu Tolgoi (OT) project that involved investments totalling 6.6 bn US$ (2). The International Monetary Fund (IMF) believes that Mongolia has natural resources worth between 1,000 and 3,000 bn US$ (3), including the world's second-largest reserves of copper. Mongolia is therefore one of the most resource-rich countries on the planet (4), having as it does plentiful supplies of gold, copper, coal, molybdenum, fluorite, tin and uranium. After presenting a briet description of the challenges that Mongolia is currently facing, the paper goes on to discuss four of the 20 or more mining projects that are under way in the country at the present t ime. The three ventures in question are at Oyu Tolgoi, Tavan Tolgoi, Erdenet and Tsagaan Suvarga. Germany has always enjoyed close economic ties with Mongolia and this explains the presence of two German business institutions, whose functions are described in more detail below. The revitalised German-Mongolian resource partnership, which is backed up by well-connected German-Mongolian institutions, offers great prospects for German companies on the Mongolian market.

Il s´agit de relier des concepts de théorie narrative avec la fonction didactique des romans de ce genre et de décrire leur fonctionnement. La littérature économique, en utilisant des concepts de gestion d’entreprise comme poétique, a recours dans sa représentation à des stratégies narratives qui ont une influence sur l’ordre du savoir économique. Dans une démarche comparative, l’auteur étudie ensuite le roman français contemporain Marge brute de Laurent Quintreau en tant qu’exemple d’un ordre du savoir interdiscursif, en en interrogeant le savoir représenté et les méthodes de représentation.

    Full Text Available Schweizer Bibliotheken bekunden Mühe mit ihren Auftritten im Internet. Insbesondere ihre Facebook-Seiten werden nur ungenügend genutzt. Dieser Artikel stellt die These in den Raum, wonach der Misserfolg der Bibliotheken vor allem darauf beruht, dass sie die Handlungsweisen ihrer Nutzer nicht der Umgebung des Web 2.0 anpassen. Erst wenn sich Bibliotheken als gleichberechtigte Mitglieder einer Community sehen, kann beispielsweise die Nutzung von Facebook wirklich gelingen.Swiss libraries have difficulties with their web presence. Especially their facebook pages are not being used sufficiently. This article suggests that the libraries’ failure is due to false expectations of user behaviour in a web 2.0 environment. Only if libraries regard themselves as equal members of a web community, can their web 2.0 presence and especially facebook presence unfold fully.

    Biological waste water treatment requires biologically readily degradable carbon in order to permit elimination of as much nitrogen as possible. Often now this type of carbon is no longer present in waste water in an appropriate quantity, so that external carbon must be added. Apart from industrially fabricated substrates, the use of industrial residues and waste products as well as of partial waste water streams with a high organic pollutant load is lately being considered for cost reasons. But this is not altogether harmless. Those partial streams may contain substances that inhibit denitrification, impose an additional burden on subsequent cleaning stages or may even pass them unmodified, so that they are emitted into the environment and pose an ecological hazard potential. Hence, industrial residual products need to be specifically selected for use as an external carbon source in denitrification. A suitable strategy is described and demonstrated by means of different examples. (orig.) [German] In der biologischen Abwasserbehandlung ist fuer eine weitestgehende Stickstoffelimination oftmals biologisch gut abbaubarer Kohlenstoff im Abwasser nicht (mehr) in ausreichendem Masse vorhanden. Dann ist die Zugabe einer sog. externen Kohlenstoffquelle erforderlich. Neben industriell hergestellten Substraten wird in letzter Zeit aus Kostengruenden vielfach der Einsatz industrieller Rest- und Abfallstoffe sowie organisch hochbelasteter Abwasserteilstroeme erwogen. Dies ist jedoch nicht unproblematisch, da in diesen Stoffstroemen auch Substanzen enthalten sein koennen, die die Denitrifikation hemmen, nachfolgende Reinigungsstufen zusaetzlich belasten oder diese sogar unveraendert passsieren, dadurch in die Umwelt emittiert werden und damit moeglicherweise aus oekologischer Sicht ein Gefahrenpotential darstellen koennen. Es muss also eine besondere Auswahl der Pruefung industrieller Reststoffe im Hinblick auf den Einsatz als externe Kohlenstoffquelle in der Denitrifikation

    Heintze, Joachim

    Wir haben in (4.44) den II. Hauptsatz als empirische Tatsache folgendermaßen formuliert: (i) Wärmeenergie geht von selbst nur von einem wärmeren Körper auf einen kälteren über, niemals in der umgekehrten Richtung. Nun werden wir beweisen, dass sich aus diesem Prinzip folgende äquivalente Formulierungen für den II. Hauptsatz ableiten lassen: (ii) Es ist unmöglich, ein Perpetuum mobile zweiter Art zu bauen, d. h. eine Maschine, die fortlaufend Wärmeenergie vollständig in mechanische Arbeit umsetzen kann. Eine Wärmekraftmaschine, die einen Kreisprozess mit der höchsten Temperatur Tw und der niedrigsten Temperatur Tk durchläuft, hat höchstens den Carnotschen Wirkungsgrad c = (Tw - Tk)/Tw. Wenn in der Maschine nur reversible Prozesse ablaufen, die gesamte Wärmezufuhr bei der Temperatur Tw erfolgt und ausschließlich bei der Temperatur Tw gekühlt wird, ist ihr Wirkungsgrad = C. Es gibt keine Wärmekraftmaschine, die eine bessere Ausnutzung der Wärmeenergie ermöglicht. (iv) In jedem thermodynamischen System existiert die Zustandsgröße Entropie, definiert durch ihr Differential dS = (dQrev)/T . Entropie kann erzeugt, aber nicht vernichtet werden. Bei Zustandsänderungen, die in einem abgeschlossenen System ablaufen, nimmt die Entropie entweder zu (irreversible Prozesse), oder sie bleibt konstant (reversible Prozesse). Im Anschluss an (iii) werden wir zur Definition der thermodynamischen Temperatur und bei der Diskussion von (iv) zu einem tieferen Verständnis der Entropie gelangen. Es zeigt sich, dass die Entropie das eigentliche Bindeglied zwischen Mechanik und Wärmelehre darstellt. Am Ende des Kapitels werden wir einige Anwendungen des II. Hauptsatzes betrachten.

    There are various options for retrofitting Russian prefabricated concrete-slab buildings of the first period of industrial construction, so-called khrushchevki, with the object of bringing them up to European standards of thermal insulation technology. In the given case the basis of calculations was the German EnEV 2007 (Building Energy Conservation Ordinance). The analysis of sample building data opened up a large range of possibilities for increasing its energy efficiency. For instance, calculations ascertained that relatively inexpensive methods of enhancing a buildings thermal insulation can achieve a significant decrease in energy consumption for heating. In addition, this thesis analyzes possible variations of retrofitting and reconstruction using different types of materials and heating systems. The results clearly illustrate that residential houses e.g. type series 1-507 have a future as comfortable and functional housing space. In fact, and in contrast to common prejudices, their fate is far from hopeless. Even the climatic circumstances of a northern city such as St. Petersburg do not preclude the use of alternative energy sources such as solar energy. On the contrary, it is a conceivable method of support for heating systems. In summary, the investigations show that the retrofitting of prefabricated concrete-slab buildings of the first construction period is a sensible project, especially when taking into account the further development of fossil energy prices. In its most sophisticated form (the passive house), retrofitting will result in energy savings of up to 90 %. [German] Fuer russische Wohnhaeuser der ersten Periode des industriellen Bauens, so genannte ''Chruschtschowki'', besteht ein hoher Sanierungsbedarf.

    The US 3M Company is the producer of the 'Scotchply' glass fibre prepreg which results in materials that can withstand higher dynamic loads than conventional glass fibre reinforced plastics. The new materials are used, e.g., for leaf spring construction. The fatigue characteristics of GFRP leaf springs were discussed at the DGM 'Verbundwerkstoffe und Werkstoffverbunde' conference at Kaiserslauter in September 1997. This contribution presents tools for the engineer for calculation of leaf springs in consideration of the expected loads. [German] Bereits frueher konnte nachgewiesen werden, dass mit Glasgarngelegen verstaerkte Kunststoffe dynamisch hoeher beansprucht werden koennen als gleichartige Konstruktionen mit Glasgewebeverstaerkung. Dieser Vorteil wird in der industriellen Praxis genutzt, um den breiten Einsatzbereich von Blattfedern aus Stahl durch solche aus Faserverbundwerkstoffen zu erweitern. Mit Glasfasern verstaerkte Kunststoffe (GFK) sind seit Jahren Stand der Technik. Die Verarbeitung als Gelegeprepreg hat sich oekonomisch und oekologisch als eine guenstige Technologie bewaehrt. Die Prepregs werden im Wickelverfahren in die endgueltige Form gebracht oder zu Platten verpresst, aus denen die gewuenschten Werkstuecke mechanisch herausgearbeitet werden. Eine ideale Ausnutzung aller in UD-Gelegen vorgegebenen Eigenschaften ist die Form der Blattfeder. Werkstoff und Geometrie koennen optimal an die Belastung angepasst werden. Ueber die Ermuedungsfestigkeit von GFK-Blattfedern wurde waehrend der Vortragstagung der DGM 'Verbundwerkstoffe und Werkstoffverbunde' im September 1997 in Kaiserslautern eingehend berichtet. Mit dieser Veroeffentlichung soll dem Ingenieur eine Hilfe gegeben werden, solche Blattfedern entsprechend der spaeteren Beanspruchung zu berechnen. (orig.)

    The German market for technically matured solar-thermal systems for generating hot water is growing by 20 per cent per year, with some deviations due to incentive policies. This growth can be and is planned to be increased systematically, with following goals: A practical contribution to the Federal Government's efforts to achieve the goals regarding the protection of climate; creating future-oriented jobs; supporting ecologically sustainable ways of life and models of consumption by convincing the consumers and other target groups of the fact that it makes sense already today to start utilizing solar energy and to invest also on private basis. These targets are expected to be set up with the help of a three-year mass campaign (1999 until 2001), i.e. the campaign called ''Solar - na klar.'' (solar - of course). [German] Der deutsche Markt fuer die technisch ausgereiften solarthermischen Anlagen zur Warmwassererzeugung waechst mit ca. 20% p.a., mit foerderpolitisch bedingten Schwankungen.

    1998-06-01

    It has been confirmed by practical project experience that integral energy concepts are an excellent basis for the construction of energy-efficient buildings. In the extreme case buildings can even be self-sufficient in their energy supply. Uniting the responsibility for the overall energy and technology concept in the hands of a single contractor can help reduce frictional losses between those involved in the planning as well costs. A good example of this is the use of a simulation calculation for the prescribed demonstration of proper heat insulation. The presented projects show that it is possible to construct ecologically answerable buildings at attractively low costs. The presented concepts appear particularly convincing from the viewpoint of long-term maintenance of value and user-specific advantages such as agreeable working conditions. [Deutsch] Die konkreten Projekterfahrungen bestaetigen, dass durch integrale Energiekonzepte sowohl im Verwaltungs- als auch im Wohnungsbau hervorragende Voraussetzungen fuer energiesparende Gebaeude geschaffen werden koennen. Im Extremfall kann sogar eine autarke Energieversorgung erreicht werden. Durch Zusammenfassung der Gesamtverantwortung fuer das Energie- und Technikkonzept in einer Hand koennen Reibungsverluste zwischen den Planungsbeteiligten reduziert und Kosten gesenkt werden. Ein Beispiel hierfuer ist die Verbindung des vorgeschriebenen Waermeschutznachweises mit einer fuer alle Beteiligten wesentlich aussagekraeftigeren Simulationsrechnung. Die vorgestellten Projekte zeigen, dass oekologisch sinnvolle Gebaeude auch zu oekonomisch attraktiven Kosten erstellt werden koennen, wobei insbesondere der Aspekt des langfristigen Werterhalts und die nutzerspezifischen Vorteile, z.B. durch angenehmere Arbeitsbedingungen, fuer die vorgestellten Konzepte spricht.

    The contribution discusses an energy efficiency partnership in the public sector of the Land Saxony-Anhalt. The contract between the local office for school building maintenance and supplies of the Wittenberg district and the energy service provider Johnson Controls JCI Regelungstechnik GmbH is for facility and energy management of four school centers. The energy efficiency measures are calculated to achieve savings over a contractual period of seven years justifying the investment of DEM 640 000 for modern technology, and savings exceeding the money invested will go to the rural district administration. A particularly helpful effect for the region is that contracts for required work in this context are awarded to the local or regional trade and industry, thus raising the employment level. (orig./CB) [German] Die Zahl der Energiesparpartnerschaften mit der oeffentlichen Hand nimmt zu. Zuletzt hat die Johnson Controls JCI Regelungstechnik GmbH zusammen mit dem Landkreis Wittenberg in Sachsen-Anhalt den Startschuss fuer die gemeinsame Energiesparpartnerschaft fuer vier ausgewaehlte Liegenschaften der dortigen Schulverwaltung gegeben. Ueber eine Laufzeit von sieben Jahren spart der Dienstleister so viel Energie ein, dass sich Investitionen von 640.000 DM in moderne Gebaeudetechnik lohnen. Wird mehr Energie eingespart, so kommt dies dem Landkreis zugute. Eine Besonderheit in Wittenberg ist die Vergabe zahlreicher Leistungen an ortsnahe Unternehmen. Damit profitiert der Landkreis in sozialer, wirtschaftlicher und oekologischer Hinsicht. (orig.)

    In a research project for the Federal Environmental Office (DKZ 3709 33 340), the effects of compost on agricultural land were analyzed and described in a form that enables the information to be integrated in balancing and evaluation specifications of eco-balances. The project was supplemented by a detailed eco-balance in order to assess inhowfar these regulations affect the waste management options for biomass waste from private households. It is found that separate collecting and utilisation are ecologically sound according to the recent findings. (orig.)

Dies ist zwar nicht in allen Faellen gelungen. Jedoch konnten deutliche Fortschritte erzielt werden. Das Projekt wurde durch eine umfassende Oekobilanz abgeschlossen, um zu pruefen, inwieweit diese Aenderungen Auswirkungen auf die Beurteilung der einzelnen Entsorgungsoptionen fuer Bioabfaelle aus Haushalten haben. Es zeigt sich, dass die Bewertung der getrennten Sammlung und Verwertung als oekologisch sinnig durch die neuen Erkenntnisse eher noch bestaerkt werden. (orig.)

    The ``Agenda 21`` was decided at Rio de Janeiro in June 1992. It is to provide a guideline for political action of all parties concerned in the 21st century. Its key concept, ``sustainable develoment``, is a multi-faceted concept which attempts to coordinate ecological, economic and social needs on a medium to long-term basis. Changes in consumption patterns are of central importance. The article goes into detail about these and also about the problems caused by energy and power supply as it is today. (orig.) [Deutsch] Im Juni 1992 wurde in Rio de Janeiro die sogenannten `Agenda 21` als Leitfaden fuer das im 21. Jahrhundert erforderliche Handeln aller Akteure verabschiedet. Im Zentrum dieses Aktionsprogramms steht der schillernde Begriff `sustainable development`. In vierzig Kapiteln, die sich mit allen gesellschaftlichen Gruppen und allen Problemfeldern moderner Gesellschaften auseinandersetzen, wird versucht, `nachhaltige Entwicklung` zu definieren und Wege aufzuzeigen, wie oekologische, oekonomische und gesellschaftliche Anliegen mittel- bis langfristig auf einen Nenner gebracht werden koennen. Von zentraler Bedeutung ist dabei die Frage der Veraenderung der Konsumgewohnheiten. Mit diesem Thema wird ein grosser Teil der in Rio alle Verhandlungen bestimmenden Anliegen angesprochen. Es verwundert nicht, dass auch in diesem Zusammenhang die von der heutigen Energieversorgung verursachten Probleme im Vordergrund stehen. (orig.)

    Sewage sludge is a solid-liquid mixture produced in each treatment step of a waste water treatment plant. The suitable manner of sludge treatment and disposal depends on the characteristics of the sludge such as its content of heavy metals and nutrient composition. To assess the different sludge treatment and disposal options besides the economical aspects effects on the environment must be considered. The emission of CO{sub 2} can serve as a possible approach for assessment. The dewatering and thermal drying approach for assessment. The dewatering and thermal drying causes the biggest part of CO{sub 2} emissions. They are at the same level as the CO{sub 2} which would be generated directly by total oxidation of the carbon contained in the sludge. The best way of sewage sludge disposal in accordance with the legal frame work, environmental impact and financial aspects is the co-combustion of sludge in cole power plants. The agricultural use of sludge with low heavy metal concentrations, however, is cheaper. (orig.) [Deutsch] Das Fest-Fluessig-Gemisch Klaerschlamm entsteht in jeder Reinigungsstufe einer Klaeranlage und muss anschliessend einer Behandlung zugefuehrt werden. Der Entsorgungsweg ist abhaengig von den Eigenschaften des Schlammes, wie z.B. seiner Schwermetallbelastung. Den Rahmen fuer die Klaerschlammentsorgung bilden die Regelungen des Abfallgesetzes, der Klaerschlammverordnung, der Duengemittelanwendungsverordnung, der TA Siedlungsabfall, des LAGA Merkblattes 10 (Kompost) und weiterer Verordnungen des Immissionsschutz- und Abfallrechts. Zur Bewertung der verschiedenen Entsorgungswege wurden neben den oekonomischen Aspekten auch die Auswirkungen der jeweiligen Verfahren auf die Umwelt beruecksichtigt. Es wurde fuer die oekologische Bewertung die CO{sub 2}-Emission des einzelnen Verfahrens herangezogen. Das Resultat des Vergleichs zeigt, dass der Co-Verbrennung der Vorzug zu geben ist. Bei geringen Schwermetallbelastungen bietet die landwirtschaftliche

    Full Text Available Die vorliegende Arbeit bildet einem Teil der Studien, die unter Leitung des nationalen Malaria-Dienstes in Zusammenarbeit mit Technikern des Institutes Oswaldo Cruz im Sueden Brasiliens durchgefuehrt werden und sich mit dem Problem des Wechselspiels zwischen Malaria und Bromeliacen befassen. Die verfasser bearbeiten in dieser Niederschrift, die den Anfang einer Serie ueber die erwaehnten Fragen darstellt, die Entwicklung der Anophelinen der Untergattung Kerteszia in den Wasseransammlungen der Blattwinkel von Bromelien. Es wurde das Munizip Brusque ausgewaehlt, da hier die Abhaengigkeit der Bevoelkerung vom Wald eine sehr enge ist und da dieses Gebiet fuer die Oekologie und Topographie der Suedregion charakteristisch ist. Den hier gefundenen Wald nennen die Autoren die “Suedbrasilianische Regenformation”. Vor der Ankunft der Arbeitsgruppe wurden die folgenden Methoden zur Bekaempfung der Brutstaetten der Malariauebertraeger angewendet: 1. Manuelle Entfernung der Bromelien aus den die Staedte umgebenden Waeldern, 2. Abholzung. Da diese beiden Methoden zu drastisch sind, benutzten die erwaehnten Techniker anfangs eine 0,5% ige Loesung von Kupfersulfat als “Bromelicid” und spaeter PariserGruen, das vom Flugzeug aus verstaeubt wurde. Um ueberfluessige Schaeden an den Pflanzengesellschaften zu vermeiden, wurde daran gedacht, auf Grund oekologischer Betrachtungen das Problem “Bromeliaceae-Malaria” nach dem Vorbild Pittendrigh’s in Trinidad zu loesen. Es wurde folgenden Arbeitsplan durchgefuehrt: 1. Studium der Vergesellchaftungen im Hinblick auf die Soziologie und ihre Beziehungen zu den Bromelien, 2. Auszaehlung der in den Bromelien enthaltenen Larven und Puppen, 3. Kenntnis des Mittelwertes der Larven, die sich zu Imagines entwickeln und 4. Mikrolima der Waelder usw.

    1998-12-31

    Thirty years ago, Thomas D. Crocker and John H. Dales came up with the idea of tradable permits for making environmental protection both economically and ecologically efficient. Since then, a heated and controversial discussion has been going on. Tradable permits were considered as unrealistic, contra-competitive, incompatible with political structures, and even as an attempt to treat Mother Nature as a whore. As a result, Germany still operates by the command-and-control principle, and there are no significant examples of emission trading. The first part of this publication reviews the theoretical discussion and practical experiemce so far, while the second part discusses the requirements that must be met by tradable permit systmes in order to make them practicable. [Deutsch] Dreissig Jahre Diskussion ueber Zertifikate zeigen, dass der Weg zu einer marktwirtschaftlich ausgerichteten Umweltpolitik steinig ist. Die bahnbrechende Idee von Thomas D. Crocker und John H. Dales, mit Zertifikaten Umweltschutz sowohl oekonomisch effizient wie auch oekologisch treffsicher zu realisieren, wurde in der Vergangenheit immer wieder von Zweifeln an der Praktikabilitaet einer solchen Loesung ueberlagert. So wurde der Handel mit Zertifikaten als unrealisierbar angesehen, wettbewerbs- und strukturpolitische Einwaende wurden angefuehrt, und man empfand die Vergabe von Rechten zur Umweltnutzung sogar als Prostitution von Mutter Natur. Als Folge hat Deutschland bis heute kein signifikantes Umsetzungsbeispiel vorzuweisen; das Ordnungsrecht beherrscht nach wie vor die Szene. Der erste Teil des Bandes beleuchtet zunaechst den Stand der theoretischen Diskussion und die bisher gemachten Erfahrungen mit Zertifikaten. Der zweite Teil ist den Anforderungen gewidmet, denen Zertifikatesysteme gerecht werden muessen, um Eingang in die Praxis zu finden. (orig.)

    Wasserstoffenergienetz, um damit Energie untereinander tauschen zu koennen und mit Ueberschuessen handeln zu koennen, wird eine demokratische Reglobalisierung von unten bedeuten. Die Zeit der wenigen grossen Energiekonzerne wird von einer Epoche vieler kleiner, unabhaengiger Versorger abgeloest. Oekonomische, soziale und und oekologische Netzwerke werden entstehen als Teil eines gesamtweltlichen Organismus und ein neues Sicherheits- und Unabhaengigkeitsgefuehl aller Buerger hervorrufen. Die eindeutigen Vorteile von Wasserstoff bestehen darin, dass Wasserstoff ueberall existiert, unbegrenzt verfuegbar ist und keine schaedlichen Kohlendioxidemissionen produziert. Diese Energie wird auch erschwinglich fuer Laender, die heute keinen Zugang zu Energie und Wohlstand haben. Ja gerade die Entwicklungslaender koennten den ersten Schritt in die nachhaltige Wasserstoffnutzung machen mit Sonnenenergie als Katalysator. Die ersten Brennstoffzellen auf Waserstoff-Basis werden bereits vielseitig eingesetzt, jedoch ist die Wasserstofferzeugung immer noch teuer und der meiste Wasserstoff wird aus Erdgas und anderen fossilen Brennstoffen gewonnen. In absehbarer Zeit koennte Wasserstoff mit erneuerbaren Energien produziert und billiger werden. Selbst in den Vorstandsetagen fuehrender Energieunternehmen sowie bei politischen Entscheidungstraegern erfreut sich Jules Vernes Vision von einer Zukunft im Zeichen des Wasserstoffs grosser Aufmerksamkeit und sie bemuehen sich auch schon jetzt um.

    Carbon dioxide is an ecologically acceptable and safe refrigerant, but there are energetic disadvantages in certain processes of refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pumpt technology. The thermodynamic losses of carbon dioxide are caused on the one hand by high end temperatures of the compression stage and on the other hand by relatively high losses of irreversible throttling expansion. The efficiency could be enhanced by work output during expansion, which is utilized for compression in the second stage of a two-stage compressor. In order to keep the machinery simple, both the expansion with work output and the compression take place inside a fully autonomous combined free-piston unit. The practical results achieved so far prove the validity of the theoretical predictions and show that the machine works both independently and also when integrated in a refrigeration system. Further investigations will be required in order to improve and simplify the new expansion-compression machine. [German] Der Einsatz von Kohlendioxid als Kaeltemittel ist oekologisch wuenschenswert und sicherheitstechnisch unproblematisch. Einer breiten Anwendung von Kohlendioxid wirken vor allem energetische Nachteile in bestimmten Prozessen der Kaelte-, Klima- und Waermepumpentechnik entgegen. Im Vergleich zu den heute ueblichen Kaeltemitteln sind die thermodynamischen Verluste des Kohlendioxids zum einen in den hohen Verdichtungsendtemperaturen und zum anderen in den relativ hohen Verlusten der irreversiblen Drosselentspannung begruendet. Eine Moeglichkeit, die Effizienz deutlich zu erhoehen und dadurch mit konkurrierenden Systemen gleichzuziehen, ist der Einsatz einer arbeitsleistenden Entspannung des Kaeltemittels Kohlendioxid einschliesslich der Nutzung fuer die Verdichtung des Kohlendioxids in der zweiten Stufe einer zweistufigen Kompression. Fuer einen moeglichst geringen anlagentechnischen Aufwand wird eine kombinierte Expansions-Kompressions-Maschine verwendet, in der sowohl die

    Full Text Available In the last years the scientific system of publication was challenged increasingly. Open Access – the free access to scientific information – has contributed a lot to it. Therefore is a profound discussion with the phenomenon Open Access worthwhile. In this context the business model of traditional publishing is compared to that of the Open Access. This comparison should give the impulse to think over the interpretation of the Open Access referring to the Berlin Declaration and to open to new forms of the Open Access. However, for this purpose existing enemy images must be destroyed which were aroused since the last years above all between commercial publishing companies and the science. In this respect the following implementations are not only a dialogue help, but they also refresh the legitimization of commercial publishing companies in the publication process and offer them a new action basis. Because Open Access should be understood not only as a danger – above all it is a challenge and chance for the continuity of commercial scientific publishing companies. The point is that it is possible to break into electronic markets of tomorrow.

    Purpose: Postpartum pelvic pain beyond the normal level poses a problem to obstetricians. Beyond normal physiologic loosening of the pubic symphysis and sacroiliac joints (SIJs) during pregnancy, symphyseal separation and rupture must be excluded. The aim of this prospective study was to determine whether magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allows for reliable differentiation of normal postpartum findings and pathologic lesions. Material and Methods: The study included a total of 77 women (mean age 30), among them 21 healthy subjects (group A), 21 asymptomatic postpartum women (group B), and 35 patients with postpartum pelvic pain (group C). The analyzed parameters comprised symphyseal and iliosacral tenderness, subjective pain assessed on a visual analog scale, and data pertaining to obstetric history. All 77 women underwent 1.5T MRI of the pelvic ring using oblique angulated coronal T 1-weighted and STIR sequences for imaging of the symphysis and SIJs in one slice package. Analysis of the MR images comprised signal intensities of pelvic bone marrow, width of the symphyseal cleft, and the symphyseal capsule. Results: Subjects in group A in general had a normal bone marrow signal. The STIR sequence showed increased signal intensity of the pubic bone near the symphysis in 16 women (76%) of group B and 31 patients of group C (86%) (not significant). An increased periarticular bone marrow signal of the SIJs on the STIR images was seen in 13 women (62%) of group B and 23 patients (63%) of group C. The mean width of the symphyseal cleft differed significantly among the three groups (3.4 mm vs. 5.4 mm vs. 6.7 mm). A width > 10 mm was observed in only 4 cases (11%). Moreover, associated findings such as interpubic hematoma (n = 23) or tears of the symphyseal capsule (n = 7) were detected in patients of group C. (orig.)

    Full Text Available Das Internet bietet Lernenden vielfältige Möglichkeiten zur Wissensorganisation und -kommunikation in formalen und informellen Bildungskontexten. Bislang nutzen selbst bildungsaffine erwachsene Lerner diese unterstützenden Potenziale des Internets vielfach nur zurückhaltend. Dieser zögerliche Gebrauch zeigt sich auch dann, wenn die Implementierung virtuell vernetzter Applikationen in der Planung von den Lernenden von den Akteuren prinzipiell gefordert und begrüsst wird. Im Zentrum unseres Beitrags stehen mögliche Gründe und Bedingungen für diese vermeintlichen Widerstände und Problematiken bei der Integration des Partizipationsraums Internet für berufliche Lernprozesse. Grundlage für die Diskussion sind die Praxiserfahrungen und empirischen Ergebnisse einer explorativen Fall­studie mit einem ethisch beratenden Gremium. Die bisherige Bilanz des Projektvor­habens unterstreicht die Notwendigkeit, in diesem Kontext theoretische Konzepte zu Lernwiderständen, generationsspezifischen Aspekten, zur Mediendidaktik und zu Lerngewohnheiten und Transfer zu diskutieren. Die Ergebnisse belegen, dass digitale Lern- und Arbeitsformen unmittelbar an eingeschliffene Lernroutinen gebunden sind. Lernende benötigen Zeit, Raum, Anlässe und Struktur, um Handlungs- und Lernroutinen aufzubrechen und neue zu entwickeln. Nur so können digitale Partizipationsmöglichkeiten erfolgreich in den Arbeitsalltag integriert werden.

    Full Text Available In context of the first study on folk linguistic concepts in the German language area carried out by the Kiel DFG research project "perceptual dialectology", this article looks at how salient features could be surveyed and categorized by a stimulus-response-test. After a definition of salience, the study design including the stimulus-response-test is presented. The test was created and modified during the project as a guessing game by the Institute for German Language (IDS Mannheim. The central question in this article is which linguistic features stimulate the informants to locate a speech sample on a map with predetermined cities and hence which salient features trigger the regional identification. In a second step, the speech samples are analyzed by the variables 'pleasantness' and 'correctness' defined by Dennis R. Preston. The central question here is: Are speech samples with a high pleasure value also automatically considered correct? Finally, an interpretation of metalinguistic comments in the speech examples will give more insight into folk linguistic concepts and the role of salient features in this regard.

    The report includes a description of observed climate changes, the global climatic change and projections into the future with special respect to Germany. The target of the European Union is to limit the global temperature increase to 2 deg C within 100 years. The requirements for climate protection scenarios to reach this goal and costs of climate protection measures are discussed. The IPCC (Intergovernmental panel on climate change) does not define recommendations for an international distribution of emission reductions but is targeting to fairness between industrial, emerging and developing countries. Germany aims to reduce emission by 40% until 2020.

  3. No opt-out is forever. Sweden opts back in; Ausstieg ist nie endgueltig. Schweden kehrt um

    The draft legislation by the conservative-liberal Swedish government of early 2010, which was adopted by the Swedish parliament on June 17, 2010, not only repeals the shutdown of all Swedish nuclear power plants, which had earlier been foreseen by this year, but permits the construction and operation of new plants. In Sweden, a referendum in 1980 started the opt-out process. Shutdown within 30 years was foreseen in the regulation. As early as in late 1995, an Energy Committee appointed by the government reported that a complete opt-out by 2010 was impossible to achieve on economic and environmental grounds. Under the 1997 Opt-out Act, the government may shut down nuclear power plants at any time against an indemnification - unlike Germany. Another prerequisite is the realistic availability of new energy sources. As a consequence, only 2 nuclear power plants have been shut down so far, mainly because of protests from neighboring Denmark. Thirty years after the referendum, the acceptance of nuclear power in Sweden is high and stable. In line with growing public acceptance in the course of the debate about climate change, the Christian-Democratic Party changed its policy in March 2007, opting out of the opt-out. Finally, the conservative-liberal Swedish government submitted draft legislation to parliament which also permitted building new nuclear power plants. The Social Democratic Workers' Party, which is in the opposition, stuck to its rejection of the use of nuclear power and announced its intention to reverse the repeal of the opt-out in September 2010, after parliamentary elections and a possible new red-green government. The public and political developments in Sweden show that social attitudes towards nuclear power, opt-out policies and legal regulations can change. Adopting a rational attitude when discussing nuclear power and realities is possible, and political views sooner or later will adapt to the new situation. This could happen also in Germany. Developments in Sweden show that no opt-out is forever. (orig.)

    Purpose: The objective of the study was to determine whether the various breast biopsy procedures specified in the S 3 guidelines are sensibly represented within the current German health system as considered from a cost evaluation perspective. Materials and Methods: This prospectively designed multicenter study analyzed 221 breast biopsies at 7 institutions from 04/2006 to 01/2007. Core needle biopsies, vacuum-assisted biopsies and surgical open biopsies under sonographic or mammographic guidance were evaluated. During an analysis of process costs, the individual process steps were recorded in diagrammatic form and assigned to the true consumption of resources. The actual resource consumption costs were entered. A process-related breakeven analysis was conducted to check whether the reimbursement of individual biopsy types covers the costs. Results: Only sonographically guided core needle biopsy and surgical open biopsy are adequately reimbursed in the current German health system. All other breast biopsies indicate a negative profit margin. The principal reasons for underfunding are found in the area of reimbursement of investment and non-personnel costs. Conclusion: The reimbursement of breast biopsies must be improved in order to guarantee nationwide care of the population using the breast biopsy methods recommended in the S 3 guidelines and to avoid disincentives with respect to breast biopsy indications.

    Full Text Available This article examines Helen Fielding’s, Marlene Streeruwitz’s, and Karen Duve’s novels in the context of the literarisches Fräuleinwunder , the generic conventions of chick lit, and postfeminism, relating all three to the globalization of the book publishing industry and its effects on German-language fiction. I argue that Duve’s and Streeruwitz’s texts can be understood as responses to the Anglo-American chick lit that flooded the German-language book market in the 1990s, of which Fielding’s novel is one of the best-known. Close readings situate both German-language novels firmly within the generic conventions of chick lit, and then look at the ways the texts relate to postfeminism, as well as second- and third-wave feminism. I conclude by arguing that our concept of Frauenliteratur should be expanded to include chick lit as well as more overtly political feminist texts.

    The relatively constant temperatures of the underground at a depth of 100 meters provide the opportunity to air-condition buildings with geothermal energy and economically. Currently, building air conditioning systems in Central Europe exhibit high growth rates. In summer, the task of an air conditioner is to cool and dehumidify air. Especially the dehumidification usually causes a high cooling demand, as the air is cooled below the dew point temperature of 12 C in order to condense out the water. The dew point is well below the demand for a comfortable room temperature of about 19 C. With this in mind, the authors of this contribution report on a principle of alternative dehumidification by means of a so-called sorption wheel. Sorption wheels use the hygroscopic properties of certain substances such as lithium chloride or silica gel in order to dehumidify the air. Thereby, the cooling demand significantly is reduced by the previous dehumidification. The regeneration of the sorption wheel requires heat. This heat can be provided by solar thermal plants and district heating. Since the air can no longer be dehumidified, rich supply temperatures between 16 and 19 C from. These temperatures can be achieved by means of near-surface temperature. Ground registers, geothermal energy probes or geothermal structures such as power poles are used as ground heat exchanger. The authors present the concept and the measurement results of the pilot plant in Hamburg's HafenCity.

    Hydrothermal Carbonisation (HTC) is an innovative process to convert biogenic residual materials from municipalities into high-quality biogenic solid fuels (charcoal). However, this entails increasing fuel costs. Especially high capital costs and a lower capacity factor of innovative processes as well as the pelletising of the charcoal are the main cost drivers. Hence an on-site utilisation of the charcoal without pelletising, e.g. for heat generation, has a high cost reduction potential. Due to the higher capital costs of solid fuel boilers and fuel storage compared to oil and gas boilers, a high degree of capacity utilisation should be pursued to reduce the fixed cost share and, by this means, lower the levelised costs of heat. Currently, the Hydrothermal Carbonisation conversion process is expensive. Therefore, using the charcoal for heat production is not competitive compared to other fossil or biofuels. The high development and cost reduction potential of this innovative process may have a positive economic impact on future utilisation.

    With the share of intermittent renewable energies within the electricity system rising, balancing services from dispatchable power plants are of increasing importance. This study comparatively assesses the environmental and economic performance of biogas plant configurations, supplying biogas on demand for flexible power generation. A cost analysis of five configurations based on biogas storing and flexible biogas production concepts has been carried out. Results show that additional flexibility costs for a biogas supply of 8 hours per day range between 2 Euro to 11 Euro MWh{sup -1} and for a 72 hour period without biogas demand from 9 Euro to 19 Euro MWh{sup -1}. While biogas storage concepts were identified as favorable short-term supply configurations, flexible biogas production concepts profit from reduced storage requirements at plants with large biogas production capacities or for longer periods without biogas demand [1, 2]. Flexible biogas plant configurations indicate an increased energy demand to operate the operational enhancements compared to conventional biogas plants supplying biogas for baseload power generation. However, findings show that in contrast to an alternative supply of power generators with natural gas, biogas supplied on demand by adapted biogas plant configurations saves greenhouse gas emissions by 54 to 65 g CO{sub 2-eq} MJ{sup -1} and primary energy by about 1.17 MJ MJ{sup -1}. In this regard, configurations with flexible biogas production profit from reduced biogas storage requirements and achieve higher savings compared to configurations with continuous biogas production [1, 3].

    This collection of three short articles present four examples of installations using renewable forms of energy that are operated by the Bernese power utility BKW-FMB in Switzerland. Brief details are given on the company, one of the largest electricity utilities in Switzerland. The first article deals with the photovoltaics (PV) installations on the roof of the new national soccer stadium in Berne and one of the oldest Swiss PV-installations on Mont-Soleil in the Jura mountains. Also covered are the efforts made by the utility and its partners in the area of marketing the power under the trade name '1 to 1 energy'. Information for the general public is provided in visitor centres and also by the solar-powered boat on the Lake of Bienne. A further article deals with wind power from the Mont-Crosin Site in the Jura mountains. The third article describes a hydro-electric power station on the river Aare, which, thanks to measures taken in the ecological area, carries the 'Naturemade Star' label for the power it produces.

  17. Influence of region and site-specific factors on the degree of general validity of ecological and primary-energy-related assessments of biogas; Einfluss regionaler und standortspezifischer Faktoren auf die Allgemeingueltigkeit oekologischer und primaerenergetischer Bewertungen von Biogas

    As described in this publication, since the early 1990s numerous studies based on the life cycle assessment methodology have been dedicated to assessments of different kinds of bioenergy in comparison with fossil energy resources in terms of their energy balance and environmental impact. On reviewing the results of these studies one finds a strikingly wide range of variation. One major factor of influence on the results of life cycle assessments, besides methodological factors such as the choice of allocation method, is the representativeness of the data used. Thus, widely varying results are also obtained when balance calculations and assessments are performed on energy crops with due consideration to regional and site-specific factors. To address this problem the present study endeavoured to identify region and site-specific factors and assess them in terms of their influence on the life cycle assessment of the cultivation and conversion to biogas of different kinds of energy crops. For this purpose the following questions were explored: What influence do region, site and equipment-specific factors have on the results of ecological and primary-energy-related assessments; and how large are the differences in results between region and site-specific assessments on the one hand and assessments based on general assumptions on the other? It transpires that the results of region and site-specific assessments differ from one another in terms of both the assessment of energy cropping and the assessment of the entire process chain of biogas production and conversion to electricity.

    The joint research project BioWaste-to-Liquid, which is carried out by Deutsches BiomasseForschungsZentrum (DBFZ) and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), focuses on the provision of alternative fuels by means of fast pyrolysis. Alongside the various tests and technical analyses, an ecologic and economic assessment was carried out, that examines the performance of different raw materials in terms of GHG-emissions and production costs. The herein examined raw materials were Rape straw, Sunflower straw, residues of corn harvesting, hay, waste wood, bark and driftwood from river Rhine. The results show a good performance of waste wood and draft wood both in ecologic and economic terms, whilst especially Sunflower straw can be considered rather unsuitable since it is particularly affected by the negative effects of the compensatory fertilization. The other raw materials perform varyingly in the ecologic and economic assessments. (orig.)

    Heat insulation materials are used in many applications with special tasks. Insulating materials like mineral wool, hard foams are used in civil engineering and for industrial insulation. Insulating materials from natural fibres are used in civil engineering on a small scale, too. In the clothing area are applied knitted fleece particularly for out-door-clothing in addition to non-woven made of synthetic polymers or wool. The aim of the project consists in the development of an insulating material with a very low heat conductivity and density as well as a multitude of degree of freedom to the structure and material parameters. A mathematical model has been developed for the determination of an optimised structure regarding to heat conductivity and density. The development was done by using the electrostatic flocking technology. After the material selection practical investigations have been done about the mode of function of the selected materials regarding their thermal insulation behaviour. A pilot plant for continuous production of the flocked material has been installed and tested. The result of this project is a very variable structure of insulating materials with excellent properties. The developed material is called Super-Insulation-Flock-Material (SIFM). Using defined structural parameters and skillfully selected materials it would be possible to get a heat conductivity between 0,027 W/mK and 0,30 W/mK. The density of these structures is between 10 kg/m{sup 3} and 20 kg/m{sup 3}. Structures with a density of only 7 kg/m{sup 3} are able to attend for applications without high mechanical demands. The Super-Insulation-Fock-Material is used in the clothing area and the technical sector. Sample products, e.g. a cold protective jacket, a jacket for fire fighters, insulation of airplanes as well as heat protective plates for the automotive industry, are found out. New fields for further applications of the Super-Insulation-Flock-Material result from the 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. Der Super-Isolations-Flock-Daemmstoff findet im Bekleidungsbereich sowie im technischen Sektor Anwendung. Im Projekt sind Beispielprodukte wie Kaelteschutzjacke, Feuerwehrueberjacke, Hitzeschilde fuer das Automobil und Daemmatten fuer das Flugzeug eruiert worden. Aus den Ergebnissen ergeben sich neue Felder fuer zukuenftige Einsatzgebiete des Super-Isolations-Flock-Daemmstoffes. Voraussetzungen dafuer bilden weiterfuehrende Arbeiten, die eine Kopplung der vorgestellten Loesungen mit neuen Werkstoffen beinhalten. (orig.)

  2. SEOP cross subsidization between electricity generation companies as a complementary concept to the tax on electricity?; SEOP-Quersubventionierung zwischen Stromproduzenten als Komplementaerkonzept zur Elektrizitaetssteuer?

    The electricity tax charged in Germany contributes to reducing carbon dioxide emissions in an indirect way, i.e. via the price policy, which is intended to reduce energy consumption. As the taxation approach does not differentiate between renewable or depletable primary energy sources, the tax does not create incentives for an ecologically favourable restructuring of the generation industry. The document in hand therefore explains a complementary approach which introduces the ecological dimension. It is recommended to add a fiscal approach called SEOP, Sectoral tax on Emissions with Output-determined Partial redistribution. Adopting this policy instrument would mean to implement a cross subsidization of low-emission or no-emission electricity generation technologies by the CO2-intensive generation technologies, as a demand-side or technology-based measure supporting the intentions of the tax. Introduction of the SEOP fiscal system is expected to achieve a significant abatement of carbon dioxide emissions due to electricity generation. (orig./CB) [German] Die in der Bundesrepublik erhobene Elektrizitaetssteuer leistet einen Klimaschutzbeitrag nur insoweit, als sie ueber die Induzierung von Preissteigerungen die Stromnachfrage mindert. Da die steuerliche Belastung fuer alle Primaerenergietraeger gleich hoch ist, setzt sie aber keinerlei Anreize fuer eine oekologische Umstrukturierung der Stromerzeugung. Vor diesem Hintergrund wird vorgeschlagen, die Elektrizitaetssteuer durch ein sogenanntes SEOP-Fiskalsystem zu ergaenzen, welches eine Quersubventionierung emissionsarmer und emissionsfreier Elektrizitaetsproduktion durch CO{sub 2}-intensive Stromherstellungsverfahren impliziert. Durch eine solche produktions- bzw. angebotsseitige 'Flankierung' der Elektrizitaetssteuer waere eine spuerbare Minderung der stromerzeugungsbedingten CO{sub 2}-Emissionen realisierbar. (orig.)

    Cleaning of municipal and industrial waste water is done by means of biological processes: micro-organisms degrade pollutants. The resulting products are, besides cleaned waste water, sewage sludge and surplus sludge. Their disposal involves ecological and economic problems. One approach to their partial disposal is their degradation in a digester. Approximately one half of the organic substance is converted by anaerobic bacteria into energy-rich biogas. Optimization of this digestion process accelerates the anaerobic degradation process, increases the accruing amount of digester gas and reduces the volume of digested sludge to be disposed of. With these objectives, the Institute fuer Mechanische Verfahrenstechnik is conducting research into the mechanical treatment of micro-organisms remaining in surplus sludge by means of different treatment devices. The project is sponsored under the programme of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft DFG ``Biological processes with dispersive solids``. Mechanical treatment renders the cell constituents exploitable to anaerobic bacteria; the resulting sludge degradation is more rapid and more complete. (orig./ABI) [Deutsch] Zur Reinigung haeuslicher und industrieller Abwaesser werden biologische Prozesse eingesetzt. Dabei sorgen Mikroorganismen fuer den Abbau der Verunreinigungen. Neben dem gereinigten Abwasser fallen Primaer- und Ueberschussschlamm an, deren Entsorgung oekologische und oekonomische Probleme verursacht. Ein Weg zur partiellen Beseitigung dieser Klaerschlaemme ist ihr Abbau in einem Faulbehaelter. Dabei wird etwa die Haelfe der organischen Substanz durch anaerobe Bakterien zu einem energiereichen Biogas umgewandelt. Eine Optimierung dieses Faulprozesses beinhaltet: 1. Beschleunigung des anaeroben Abbauprozesses, 2. Erhoehung der anfallenden Faulgasmenge und 3. Reduzierung der zu entsorgenden Faulschlammenge. Mit diesen Zielsetzungen wird am Institut fuer Mechanische Verfahrenstechnik im Rahmen der DFG

    At the Radeberg sewage treatment plant of the local administration union (AZV) 'Obere Roeder', the first entirely joint co-fermentation facility for sewage sludge, organic waste and organic trade waste to have been erected in all Germany went operative. Expected turnover rates and gas yields of the fermentation plant could be attained subject to the concentrations of materials processed during the start-up phase. The advantages of co-fermentation at sewage treatment plant lie in the perfect matching of sewage treatment and sludge digestion on the one hand with organic waste fermentation on the other hand, so that the respective advantages complement each other while the disadvantages are balanced out by the combination. In terms of environmentally compatible, sustainable processing of organic waste and production residues, co-fermentation at sewage treatment plant represents a convenient and economical solution.

    In the project ''LithoRec - Recycling of lithium-ion batteries'' several methods were evaluated for recycling of traction batteries. The planning of dismantling of the battery systems in LithoRec comprised besides the pure system planning also first investigations of the automation of dismantling steps, inter alia, with the prototypical realization of a gripper system for the removal of the battery cells. Processes for disassembling the cells and separating the active materials of the metal foils has been investigated in the laboratory and established with respect to the shredding of the cells in the pilot-plant scale. For hydrometallurgical treatment of separated coating powder of lithium-ion batteries in LithoRec a pilot plant has been realized. Ecological and economical balances on the basis of investigations carried out in the laboratory or pilot plant scale showed positive results. For the separation of the battery systems to the levels of the cathodic active material powder, a consistent approach was developed, which showed very good results in laboratory equipment.

    Reforming of CH{sub 4} with CO{sub 2} to obtain CO and H{sub 2} is an interesting chemical reaction from the ecological point of view. It is a strongly endothermal reaction which opens up a new field of application for solar energy. In a closed cycle, the solar energy absorbed by a receiver is transformed into chemical energy by catalytic revorming at 800 to 1000 C. The synthesis gas can be reacted back into heat of 600-700 C by a backward reaction in a methanator. This journal article discusses catalysts for reforming in a solar receiver reactor. Until now, a macroporous foamed ceramic material blackened with dispersed Rh was used both for absorption of solar energy and for activation of the reforming reaction. The amount of Rh required for effective radiation absorption is much larger than the amount of Rh required for the catalytic reaction. Highly dispersed Rh is produced by coating foamed {alpha}-Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} with a washcoat of {gamma}-Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}. The authors intended to use Rh only as a catalyst and to substitute another material as radiation absorber. The radiation-reflecting {gamma}-Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} was to be substituted by a black porous catalyst carrier, e.g. tungsten carbide (WC) which has never been described as metal catalyst carrier so far. For the specific application in a receiver reactor, the authors had to find out whether it is applicable as a carrier for Rh dispersion and to investigate its behaviour as washcoat for the foamed ceramic material.

    Sediments in running and stationary waters continue to pose environmental as well as cost problems. In Saxonian waters alone some 3.7 million m{sup 3} of sediments mostly contaminated with heavy metals from mining or industrial activities are in need of remediation. For lack of practicable remediation methods excavated sediments nowadays are landfilled. However, due to its persisting hazard potential this solution is ecologically unsatisfactory. Exposure of these sediments to oxygen leads to microbial oxidation and acidification processes and hence partial solubilisation of heavy metals. If allowed to proceed uncontrolled this natural bioleaching process poses an environmental hazard. However, if accelerated artificially through activation of autochtonous sulphur oxidising bacteria (e.g. thiobacilli) it can be used to remediate sediments. The goal is to provide a semi-natural sediment decontamination process based on natural biological solubilisation potentials After decontamination, sediments can be returned to the materials cycle as soil substrates. The present process was developed using heavily contaminated sediments from the Weisse Elster region south of Leipzig as example material. For economic reasons it was decided to use a fixed-bed leaching process based on percolation. It proved necessary to use a multistage process. The laboratory and technical-scale experiments were dedicated to developing and implementing measures for faster metal solubilisation. [German] Gewaessersedimente sind ein bisher ungeloestes Umwelt- und Kostenproblem. Allein aus den Gewaessern Sachsens muessen ca. 3,7 Millionen m{sup 3} Sedimente beraeumt werden, diese sind zum grossen Teil mit Schwermetallen aus bergbaulichen und industriellen Aktivitaeten belastet. Gegenwaertig werden die ausgebaggerten Sedimente deponiert, da praktikable Sanierungsverfahren fehlen. Die Deoponierung ist wegen des weiter bestehenden Gefaehrdungspotentials keine oekologisch befriedigende Loesung. Kommen die

    The purpose of the present project was to characterise the pollutant freight of suspended matter and suspended-matter-borne sediments in the Oder river system on the basis of large samples drawn at selected sampling sites. One of the major goals was to assess and draw up a balance of the transport regime of suspended matter between the compartments water, suspended matter and sediments. Special attention was given to the composition and structure of suspended matter as well as to the distribution of trace elements in the various components. Furthermore, the study was intended to provide ecology-related information on the basis of selected biogenic components. Statements on the time course of pollution of estuarine waters and the Baltic Sea by way of the Oder can be derived from a characterisation of current fluviatile solids (suspended matter and suspended-matter-borne sediments) and determination of their quantitative proportions. The following research strategy was derived from these goals: for a characterisation of suspended matter in terms of composition, structure and biogenic origin it is necessary to determine the concentration of suspended matter, its granulometric composition, carbon and sulphur content, biogenic opal content, mineral content, phase composition, metal content, structure of suspended flakes and association of diatoms in the suspended flakes and on the periphyton. [German] Das Vorhaben ist darauf ausgerichtet, den Belastungszustand der Schwebstoffe und schwebstoffbuertigen Sedimente im Oderflusssystem anhand von Grossproben ausgewaehlter Probenahmeorte zu charakterisieren. Ein wesentliches Ziel ist die Beurteilung des Transportregimes der Schwebstoffe zwischen den Kompartimenten Wasser, Schwebstoff und Sediment sowie seine Bilanzierung. Dabei gilt die besondere Aufmerksamkeit der Zusammensetzung und der Struktur der Schwebstoffe sowie die Spurenelementspeziation an die unterschiedlichen Bestandteile.

    The waste management in the Federal Republic of Germany strongly is determined by globalization processes. The fundamental values of a functioning waste management on high ecological level fade ever more. Shareholder value instead of citizen value determines ever more the picture. While private disposers demand an extensive liberalisation and privatisation of the refuse economy, the municipal side grows to the cornerstone of the German waste management. The exclusive maximization of profit cannot be a branding of the German waste management. Therefore recommunalizations determine the picture ever more. In the future, a binary waste management consisting of municipal and private companies should determine the picture.

    Posttreatment imaging of primary bone tumours represents a diagnostic challenge for radiologists. Depending on the primary bone tumour common radiological procedures, such as radiography, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), are employed. Radiography and CT are particularly useful in benign bone tumours and in matrix-forming bone tumours. MRI comes into consideration with malignant tumour recurrence and tumoral soft tissue infiltration. Bone scintigraphy is of superior importance if a primarily multifocal manifestation of bone tumour or metastasizing tumour disease is suspected. Molecular imaging (FDG-PET and hybrid imaging, using CT) are gaining increasing importance in light of monitoring neoadjuvant chemotherapy and detecting recurrent tumour appearance. The current literature shows sensitivity and specificity values for recurrent detection of up to 92% and 93%. Diagnostic accuracy is as high as 95%, thus, exceeding accuracy values for CT (67%) and MRI (86%) by far. Likewise, this is also applicable for the assessment of the neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Moreover, PET-based modalities are able to establish prognostic statements using SUV-threshold values at baseline (especially for Ewing sarcomas). Advanced imaging techniques have made a great diagnostic step forward and have proven to be relevant and reproducible with respect to both relapse detection and treatment assessment. Furthermore, it is not clear whether a higher detection rate of early tumour recurrence will inevitably lead to better outcome and survival. (orig.) [German] Die posttherapeutische Bildgebung primaerer Knochentumoren stellt eine diagnostische Herausforderung fuer jeden Radiologen dar. In Abhaengigkeit vom primaeren Knochentumor werden zur Nachsorge die gaengigen radiologischen Standardverfahren eingesetzt (Projektionsradiographie, Computertomographie [CT] und Magnetresonanztomographie [MRT]). Die Projektionsradiographie und CT haben einen besonderen Stellenwert v. a. bei benignen Knochentumoren sowie bei primaer matrixbildenden Knochentumoren. Die MRT kommt vorzugsweise zur Rezidivdiagnostik bei malignen Knochentumoren und weichteilig rezidivierender Tumoren zum Einsatz. Knochenszintigraphische Verfahren sind vorteilhaft, wenn eine primaer multifokale Manifestation der Knochentumorkrankheit vorliegt bzw. eine Metastasierung vermutet wird. Die molekulare Bildgebung (Fluordesoxyglucose-Positronenemissionstomographie [FDG-PET] bzw. ihre Hybridbildgebung in Kombination mit der CT) spielt eine zunehmende Bedeutung hinsichtlich des neoadjuvanten Therapiemonitorings und der Rezidivfrueherkennung. Die aktuelle Literatur fuehrt fuer die molekularen Bildgebungstechniken (PET, PET-CT) Sensitivitaeten und Spezifitaeten bzgl. der Rezidiverkennung von bis zu 92 % bzw. 93 % an. Die diagnostische Genauigkeit wird mit bis zu 95 % angegeben, was sowohl diejenige des CT mit 67 % und jene der MRT mit 86 % deutlich uebertrifft. In aehnlicher Weise trifft dies auch fuer die Beurteilung der neoadjuvanten Therapie zu, wobei hier die PET-basierten Verfahren mit Hilfe praetherapeutischer SUV-Werte (''standard uptake value'') prognostisch verwertbare Aussagen machen koennen (v. a. fuer Ewing-Sarkome). Die modernen Bildgebungsverfahren haben ihren Fortschritt hinsichtlich Rezidivdiagnostik und der Einschaetzung des Therapieansprechens valide und reproduzierbar unter Beweis gestellt. (orig.)

    Polymorphismen im ABCB1-Gen, das für das P-Glykoprotein kodiert, können die intrazelluläre Konzentration von Xenobiotika beeinflussen und so zur Entwicklung von Autoimmunerkrankungen, einschließlich des bullösen Pemphigoids (BP), beitragen. In der vorliegenden Studie sollte untersucht werden, ob in einer polnischen Kohorte die C3435T- und G2677T/A-Polymorphismen im ABCB1-Gen mit dem Risiko für ein BP assoziiert sind. Die Studie umfasste 71 Patienten mit BP und 156 gesunde Probanden. Der C3435T-Polymorphismus wurde mittels PCR-RFLP bestimmt und der G2677T/A-Polymorphismus mittels Allel-spezifischer PCR. Es gab zwar keine Korrelation zwischen dem C3435-Polymorphismus und dem BP-Risiko, aber wir konnten eine derartige Assoziation hinsichtlich des G2677T/A-Polymorphismus nachweisen. Das relative Risiko eines BP war bei Personen mit dem 2677TA-Genotyp um mehr als den Faktor fünf erhöht (OR = 5,52; p = 0,0063) und bei Trägern des 2677TT-Genotyps mehr als verdoppelt (OR = 2,40; p = 0,0076). Mit 2,40 (p = 0,000018) war die OR bei Trägern des 2677T-Allels ebenfalls erhöht. Die höhere Prävalenz des 2677GG-Genotyps und des 2677G-Allels bei der Kontrollgruppe sowie eine OR < 1,0 (0,22 beziehungsweise 0,33) legen eine Schutzfunktion des 2677G-Allels hinsichtlich der Ausbildung eines BP nahe.

    Few data have been published regarding scoring tools for selection of postgraduate medical trainee candidates that have wide applicability. The authors present a novel scoring tool developed to assist postgraduate programs in generating an institution-specific rank list derived from selected elements of the U.S. Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS) application. The authors developed and validated an ERAS and interview day scoring tool at five pulmonary and critical care fellowship programs: the ERAS Application Scoring Tool-Interview Scoring Tool. This scoring tool was then tested for intrarater correlation versus subjective rankings of ERAS applications. The process for development of the tool was performed at four other institutions, and it was performed alongside and compared with the "traditional" ranking methods at the five programs and compared with the submitted National Residency Match Program rank list. The ERAS Application Scoring Tool correlated highly with subjective faculty rankings at the primary institution (average Spearman's r = 0.77). The ERAS Application Scoring Tool-Interview Scoring Tool method correlated well with traditional ranking methodology at all five institutions (Spearman's r = 0.54, 0.65, 0.72, 0.77, and 0.84). This study validates a process for selecting and weighting components of the ERAS application and interview day to create a customizable, institution-specific tool for ranking candidates to postgraduate medical education programs. This scoring system can be used in future studies to compare the outcomes of fellowship training.

    Within this paper the strategies to realize a holistic steel lightweight concept were explained. The overview about the relevant basic principles starts with the right choice of suitable steel materials and the utilization of appropriate manufacturing technologies and ends up in conceptual light weight design with regard to geometry and construction principle. For explanation possibilities for the design of a body in white structure were discussed, e.g. the application of tailored products, the realization of straight members and the evolution to complex frame structures and the reduction of doubled layers and intersections. With the use of examples the additional benefits of these conceptual ideas will be shown in detail. Furthermore a short outlook concerning the development of steel products will be given, which enlarges continuously the light weight potential of the material steel in future. The question then arises as to the production of hydrogen. When making hydrogen using natural gas steam reforming, a similarly good CO2 balance is achieved for the fuel cells as for the all electric traction based on the European power mix. This result allows both types of powertrains to coexist. Batteries will show sufficient energy density for a maximum mileage of 200 km enough for today and future Mega- Cities. In the city's surroundings, with distances of up to 400 km, a market for the fuel cells may develop, primarily as a range extender. For longer mobility with distances of more than 400 km, there is no real alternative to the combustion engine with liquid hydrocarbons. It can be seen that the maximum distance for local emission-free mobility cannot be optimally provided by electrical storage technology alone. In fact, it is the combination of electrical energy storage and fuel cells which ensures short and medium range mobility. So, future focal points for research and development must be in the area of electrical storage, as well as fuel cell technology. (orig.)

    Full Text Available In this paper, I present some results of my research done in the project eXChange. My main goal was to investigate to what extent and how the terminology of the Corpus Hippocraticum has been influenced by the language of the preceding (esp. lyric literature. A common view in the linguistics concerned with languages for special purposes (the German ‘Fachsprachen’ holds that termini technici are often created by implementing a word from the common language into a technical context and narrowing its former meaning down to a specialized and strictly defined one. While this mechanism could be traced for several terms in the Corpus Hippocraticum, some terms could be found which denote special processes or methods and have been taken over into the medical context without a significant change of meaning. The question is raised if these terms can be regarded as termini technici even if their meaning has not been coined in a specialized context.

    The conventional mining industry has a rich tradition and as mining is practised all over the world under a whole range of different conditions the industry has witnessed all kinds of technical developments aimed at controlling strata behaviour and winning the target mineral as efficiently as possible. The proposed use of deep geological deposits as disposal facilities for nuclear waste has transformed the role of the mining Industry and instead of extracting material from the ground mining engineers are now focussing more on how to store waste material safely deep below the earth's surface. Nevertheless, this new remit retains many of the key aspects of conventional mining and the experience that the industry has built up over the years Is still of vital importance when it comes to selecting a suitable disposal site and planning a final waste disposal facility in deep geological formations. These processes benefit from the support of specialists with a mining engineering background, as this can help to avoid unnecessary delays, additional costs and potential damage to public image. The following paper describes some of the expertises and methods developed by the conventional extraction industry that are also of relevance for the construction of disposal facilities.

    The ''Cobalt 60 Case'' in Taiwan gives an opportunity for check of the thesis of radiation hormesis. Apartment residents have been exposed to cobalt-60 contaminated steel buildings. The results of a study strongly suggest that whole-body chronic irradiation, in the dose rate range that the apartment residents received, caused no symptomatic adverse health effects, such as radiation sickness, or the increased cancer or increased congenital disease that are predicted by ICRP theories. On the contrary, those who were exposed had lower incidences of cancer mortality and congenital malformations.

    The 11 March 2011 Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster will create long-term challenges for Japans energy security. Energy shortage is a major threat because all facets of the archipelago's economy and society are dependent upon reliable energy supply. Within this context and based on a historical institutionalist approach, this paper reflects on the long-term implications of the disaster for Japan's post-Fukushima energy policies. It argues that institutional change is incremental and path dependent for four major reasons: the massive costs of a major move to alternative energy sources; the rising importance of emission reduction and climate change mitigation policies; vested interests in the status quo of a centralised large-scale energy supply system; and the massive increase in resource nationalism in East Asia as a result of continuing geopolitical tensions. However, promoting energy efficiency, encouraging energy-saving behaviour and focusing on decentralized renewable energy development could help to reduce Japan's energy vulnerability.

    Energy costs caused by heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and lighting systems, represent a significant portion of the total operating costs of a building. continuously rising prices of gas, oil and electricity increase the cost pressure on the building operators and users: energy efficiency is becoming a major factor for the competitiveness of a company. In the manufacturing sector, trade and hotel the energy costs have a direct impact on the company's margins. Thus, the willingness to invest in energy saving measures increased. [German] Energiekosten, verursacht durch Heizungs-, Lueftungs-, Klima- und Beleuchtungsanlagen, stellen einen signifikanten Anteil der Gesamtbetriebskosten eines Gebaeudes dar.

Im produzierenden Gewerbe, im Handel und im Hotelgewerbe haben Energiekosten einen direkten Einfluss auf die Margen des Unternehmens. Dadurch erhoeht sich die Bereitschaft, in Energiesparmassnahmen zu investieren.

    This article discusses the results of a survey made on the public acceptance of wind energy projects in Switzerland and examines the situation in Switzerland with respect to the use of wind power and its promotion. The results of an internet-based survey made within the framework of a dissertation presented at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology are presented. This work included 3-D visualisations of proposed wind energy installations at various locations. The results of the survey, which showed a high level of acceptance for the installations, are commented on. The author discusses the ecological considerations relevant to the planning of wind turbines and is of the opinion that there is no danger of wind power installations 'shooting up like asparagus' in the Swiss landscape.

    Full Text Available This research sought to establish if International Accounting Standards (IAS, International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS and regulations in Zimbabwe have been associated with increased financial reporting quality for listed companies. The study adopted mixed research approach. Questionnaires and unstructured interviews were used as research instruments to collect primary data. Content analysis was also adopted to triangulate the results. Target population was the listed companies in Zimbabwe. The study found a significant negative relationship between voluntary adoption of IFRS and earnings management of listed companies in Zimbabwe. The negative relationship may indicate that IFRS does not promote earnings management for voluntary adopters, thereby implying an increased financial reporting quality. It is recommended that top management, external auditors and regulators being the key players in standards, should work together and tighten compliance so that impact of IFRS could be felt more

    Forschungsergebnisse von grundlegender Bedeutung sind wie z.B. Persistenz von Schadstoffen, Irreversibilitaet von Veraenderungen, Schaden und Schaedigung und auch Elastizitaet oder Resilience von Oekosystemen. Insbesondere Zeitskalen und Rhythmen sowie deren Vielfalt sind dafuer von Bedeutung. Hinsichtlich ihrer Persistenz besonders kritische Stoffe zeichnen sich dadurch aus, dass ihre Reaktivitaet zwar so gering ist, dass sie fuer die Anwendung stabil genug sind, die Reaktivitaet aber noch in gewissem Mass vorhanden ist und sie eine nicht zu hohe Transportrate besitzen. Persistenz ist somit ein vom Kontext abhaengiges Kriterium. Ob Aenderungen als reversibel oder irreversibel einzustufen sind, ist von den betrachteten Zeitraeumen und jeweiligen Systemen, deren Beschreibung und den hierfuer ausgewaehlten Parametern abhaengig. Voraussetzungen fuer den Fortbestand eines Systems zu schaffen, bedeutet u.a. die systemeigene Entwicklungsgeschwindigkeit und die Verschraenktheit unterschiedlicher Zeitskalen zu beachten. Wenn Stoerungen, die zu schnellen Aenderungen und somit zu kritischen Fluktuationen fuehren, vermieden werden, koennen sich oekologische Systeme entsprechend ihrer eigenen Dynamik weiterentwickeln. Die Dauer von Stoerungen sollte moeglichst kurz sein, um anthropogene, im Vergleich zur systemeigenen Zeitskala schnelle Veraenderungen von Oekosystemen zu minimieren. (orig.)

    Technik konzipiert. Sie lassen sich in die regionalen und lokalen Kreislaeufe einfuegen - mit positiven Effekten fuer die Natur und Umwelt. Doch inzwischen gehen diese oekologischen Eigenschaften der Biogastechnik durch ihre Ausrichtung auf maximalen Output verloren. Ausgangspunkt der Betrachtung ist die Theorie einer oekologischen Modernisierung der Gesellschaft, die spezifisch auf die Landwirtschaft uebertragen wird. Die Verbindung von Modernitaet und Oekologie wird als eine zentrale Frage der Zukunft der Agrarwirtschaft und der laendlichen Raeume gestellt. Die Erweiterung des Rationalisierungsbegriffs auf ethische und normative Fragen des Umwelt- und Naturschutzes stellt eine Herausforderung fuer die modernen Landwirte dar. Die widerspruechlichen Anforderungen, die den Landwirten gestellt worden waren - oekonomische Effizienz einerseits, oekologische Erfordernisse andererseits - hatten zur Krise des Bewusstseinzustands des Agrarmenschen beigetragen. Eine Typologie des oekologisch-modernen Landwirts dient der spaeteren Analyse von Gruppen der Energiewirte, die in der Empirie identifiziert wurden. Im Sinne einer oekologischen Reform der Landwirtschaft hebt sich die Gruppe der Umsteiger besonders hervor. Dazu gehoeren solche Biogasanlagenbetreiber, die die oekologischen Innovationen wegen langfristiger oekonomischer Vorteile einfuehren und sich damit auch in ihrer neuen gesellschaftlichen Rolle als Ressourcenmanager gestaerkt wissen. Es stellt sich die Frage, wie diese Landwirte in ihrem Beitrag zur Entwicklung dezentraler Energieerzeugung gefoerdert werden sollten. (orig.)

    Full Text Available O bilingüismo/multilingüismo como fenômeno social ainda é pouco reconhecido no cenário brasileiro, apesar de o tema ter conquistado espaço na academia. Em termos gerais, considera-se o Brasil um país monolíngüe, onde se fala apenas o português brasileiro. Há, no entanto, vários contextos de línguas minoritárias (grupos indígenas, grupos de imigrantes, zonas de fronteira, comunidades de surdos em que o uso de várias línguas é a regra. Nesses contextos sociolingüisticamente complexos há relações assimétricas e de conflito entre a língua hegemônica e as línguas minoritárias, em geral estigmatizadas. O presente estudo, parte dos resultados de uma pesquisa etnográfica, focaliza o conflito lingüístico presente em uma escola rural localizada numa comunidade bilíngüe/multilíngüe em zona de imigração alemã no sul do país, onde, ainda hoje, as crianças aprendem em casa a língua de herança, empregada em âmbito familiar e social. Com suporte teórico predominantemente vindo do bilingüismo visto de uma perspectiva social e dos Estudos Culturais, o objetivo principal deste artigo é problematizar a situação de contato/conflito lingüístico existente na região alvo da pesquisa e sua interface com questões de identidades construídas nos discursos hegemônicos. Além disso, discute-se como esses conflitos emergem nas relações interacionais entre os professores e entre alunos e professores, dentro da instituição escolar. Os registros sugerem que o bilingüismo da comunidade penetra na escola e que os conflitos lingüísticos e identitários ganham ainda mais força nas interações sociais entre os sujeitos que ali convivem.Bilingualism/multilingualism as a social phenomenon is still little recognized in the Brazilian scenario, despite it has gotten space in the academy. Usually, Brazil is seen as a monolingual country, where the Brazilian Portuguese is the only language spoken. There are, however, contexts of minority languages (indigenous groups, groups of immigrant, border regions, deaf communities in which the use of several languages is the rule. In these sociolinguistically complex contexts there are both asymmetric and conflicting relations between the hegemonic language and minority languages, usually stigmatized. This study develops itself from the results of an ethnographic research, focusing the language conflict that is present in a rural school located in a bilingual/multilingual community in a region of German immigration in the south of the country, where, even nowadays, children learn at home the inherited language, which is used in the familiar and social contexts. With a theoretical basis mostly acquired from bilingualism analyzed from a social perspective and from the perspective of the Cultural Studies, the main aim of this article is to problematize the language contact/conflict situation existing in the target region and its interface with identity questions built in the hegemonic discourses. Moreover, it is discussed the way these conflicts emerge in the interactional relations between teachers and among teachers and students within school. The data suggests that the community's bilingualism gets into school, and that the language and identity conflicts become even stronger within the social interactions among the individuals that live together in that space.

    Umweltwirkungen ueber den gesamten Lebenszyklus der rapsoelbasierten Kraftstoffe im Vergleich zu Dieselkraftstoff bilanziert. Die Einschraenkung auf diese Bereiche beruht darauf, dass hier die besonderen Umweltvorteile der Pflanzenoelkraftstoffe vermutet werden. Ferner konnten aufgrund der von der Deutschen Bundesstiftung Umwelt gefoerderten, juengst veroeffentlichten Studie 'Nachwachsende Energietraeger - Grundlagen, Verfahren, Oekologische Bilanzierung' aktuelle wesentliche Erkenntnisse, wie z.B. die Neubestimmung des Referenzsystems (Rotations- statt Dauerbrache), in dem Gutachten beruecksichtigt werden. Als besonders vorteilhaft fuer Rapsoel und RME gilt die Einsparung fossiler Energietraeger und die damit verbundene Minderung der Treibhausgase (vor allem CO{sub 2}). Die Treibhausgasemissionen zu reduzieren, ist eines der vorrangigen Ziele der nationalen und internationalen Umweltpolitik, um eine gefaehrliche anthropogene Stoerung des Klimas zu verhindern.

    allgemein gueltigen Inhalte des Forschungsantrags sowie die Begleitumstaende seiner Erstellung. Thematisch geht es hierbei um die nachfolgend dargestellte Problemstellung. Wasserwirtschaft soll kuenftig im Sinne der EU als integriertes Flusseinzugsgebietsmanagement betrieben weren. Das hierfuer erforderliche - derzeit kaum vorhandene - methodische Instrumentarium zu entwickeln, ist Hauptziel des Forschungsvorhabens. Dies bedingt zum einen Theorieentwicklung, zum anderen deren Validierung an einem realen Flusssystem, wofuer hier das Lippe-Einzugsgebiet gewaehlt wurde. Flusseinzugsgebietsmanagement beinhaltet die Durchfuehrung von zahlreichen Massnahmen, die den derzeitigen Zustand in Hinblick auf die Wasserqualitaet in den Gewaessern den gewuenschten Zielzustaenden annaehert. Hierzu muessen vorgesehene Massnahmen zunaechst mehrdimensional bewertet werden (oekologisch, technisch, sozio-oekonomisch). Ein zu entwickelndes Entscheidungsunterstuetzungs-System soll diese bewerteten Massnahmenbuendel zu wenigen entscheidungsrelevanten Parametern aggregieren, wodurch den Entscheidungstraegern die Wahl ihrer praeferierten Alternative in transparenter Weise ermoeglicht wird. Das Projekt wird zu oekonomisch besseren Loesungen fuehren und Basis fuer weitergehende Forschungen sein koennen. (orig.)

    The energy-saving effect of single-room control of heating systems was investigated. For this purpose, a single-room control system was installed in a university building of 1961, and energy savings were monitored for a 2-year period, with the following results: 1. The potential savings amounted to 28% in both test years. 2. Different operating strategies were used in order to assess the contribution of heating system components. 3. The amortization period is less than 8 years, i.e. much less than the expected life of the systems. 4. Appropriate technical facilities improve the operation and control of a heat supply system in large buildings. 5. Proposals for improving the functionality of single room control systems were developed. 6. Recommendations were given on how to best modernize the control systems of large buildings. 7. The results can be applied to similar buildings as well. [German] Das Forschungsprojekt hatte folgende Ziele: 1. Die Ermittlung des Energie-Einsparpotentials 2. die daraus resultierende Wirtschaftlichkeit 3. die Optimierung der Regelstrategien 4. Erstellung von Handlungsempfehlungen bei der Sanierung mittels Einzelraumregelung. Es wurde in einem Trakt eines aus dem Jahre 1961 stammenden Hochschulgebaeudes, dessen Gebaeudehuelle sich noch in einem unveraenderten Zustand befindet, ein Einzelraumregelsystem mit zugehoeriger Gebaeudeleittechnik (GLT) installiert. Im Rahmen des Forschungsprojekts wurde ueber zwei Heizperioden die damit erreichte Einsparung an Heizenergie untersucht. Im Rahmen des Projektes konnte nachgewiesen werden, dass besonders bei Gebaeuden mit diskontinuierlicher Nutzung die regelungstechnische Sanierung sowohl oekonomisch als auch oekologisch sinnvoll ist. Im Einzelnen konnten die folgenden Ergebnisse ermittelt werden: 1. Es konnte in beiden Heizperioden des Untersuchungszeitraums ein Einsparpotential von ca. 28% nachgewiesen werden. 2. Es wurden unterschiedliche Strategien zum Betrieb des Einzelraumregelsystems

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.

    Under controlled conditions detrimental substances were applied via the shoots and roots to study the induced selective effects in the forest tree species Picea abies. Clones, single trees progenies, and provenances were employed. As toxic substances aluminium (Al) and sulphur dioxide (SO{sub 2}) were applied using hydroponics and fumigation chambers. Genetic variation was remarkable. A combined application of the substances caused a higher growth depression and induced a higher damage of the needles compared to the effects of the single stress factors. Sensitive subsets had lower genetic variation compared to the respective plants which were more tolerant. Already results of field trials indicated that high genetic variation is useful for the stability of forest tree populations. The evidents of the present study confirm this hypothesis. (orig.)

    Wagner and Co Solartechnik GmbH, member of Deutscher Fachverband Solarenergie e.V. (DFS), was founded in 1979 as an autonomous company by one dormant partner and eight active partners. A 1991 solar collector sales volume of 20,000 m{sup 2} and a market-leading solar power position in Hesse place the company among today's major manufacturers of solar energy systems in the Federal Republic of Germany. In spite of this remarkable achievement the founders' exological philosophy has always been more than a mere product advertising strategy. The fact that the staff of 40 members has made 'ecological thinking' the matter-of-course basis of any of the company's transactions is manifest in the extensions to and equipment of the new 1,300 m{sup 2} production, storage, dispatch and office building the firm has been occupying since September 1991. The adopted scheme of using low-cost, massproduced components from other branches of the industry for solar systems production and provide them with high-quality absorbers to be offered as low-cost kits has been the company's reliable pillar. Meanwhile the reasonably priced materials are also used for pre-assembled lightweight collector production on the company premises. (orig.).

    The supply of biomass for the power generated is the centre of the contribution under consideration. Authoritative is the sustainable organization of the production in the cultivation of the energy crops and in the entire operating system. At first, the actual situation in selected operating systems is described due to the data of the last three years. From this, scenarios are derived in which the crop rotations are accomplished application specific and with consideration of the natural local conditions on an intensified production of bio sources of energy. Likewise, aspects of specifically changed nutrient flows and energy flows are pointed out such as the intensities in plant protection, the erosion danger and effects on the bio diversity. Only on basis of application specific analyses, the sustainability of production can be improved. Regional cultivation concentrations for energy crops are conceivable. However the borders of the cultivation of energy plant primarily depend on the economic characteristic numbers of individual companies.

    The accident of Chernobyl certainly is a good reason to make once more a critical and very thorough review of the part nuclear energy will play in future in the supply of energy. The government of the Land Baden-Wuerttemberg commissioned an expert opinion in the summer of 1986 with the following intentions: To make a comprehensive analysis of ways technically feasible to safeguard the energy supply of Baden-Wuerttemberg in the long term, evaluate these as to their ecological, economic, and social repercussions, and to investigate in particular whether, to what extent and by what steps nuclear energy use can be made superfluous and what consequences this will entail. Building on the current state of knowledge, the expert opinion is to provide the basic data for weighing the benefits and risks of different technically feasible forms that the energy supply of Baden-Wuerttemberg may take in future. This publication presents the results of more than a year's intensive research work. This volume contains the complete scientific data of the sub-project 'Scenario of Energy Consumption and Energy Supply in Baden-Wuerttemberg'. The summarizing final report indicates the position of this sub-project within the overall problem.

    The world-wide heating up of the atmosphere as well as the increasing violence and frequency of extreme weather events mainly are due to the emission of carbon dioxide. The emission of carbon dioxide is based on the power production by combustion of fossil sources of energy. The motor traffic causes a substantial portion of these emissions. Under this aspect, the author of the contribution under consideration examines, to what extent young people are sensitized to the relation between power generation by burning fossil sources of energy and the global climatic change and to ecological acting. In the context of the environment project 'Biodiesel as a pollution-free alternative to mineral diesel oil', 55 young people were informed about these relations and interviewed afterwards. After this project, a fifth of the young people transferred to economical diesel engined vehicles. A third of the young person wants to drive with biodiesel based on economic considerations. Young peoples only have a small amount of knowledge on these relations. Only those young people, who drive with biodiesel, are informed better significantly.

After the introduction of initial products onto the market, corresponding requirements for plants based on this new technology should be specified. (orig.) [German] Beim vorliegenden Gutachten handelt es sich um eine Machbarkeitsstudie nach ISO 14024. Es behandelt die Frage, ob ein Umweltzeichen fuer kleine BHKW-Module gerechtfertigt ist, und welche Anforderungen diese im Vergabefall erfuellen sollten. Im Rahmen der Untersuchung wurde zunaechst eine umfassende Marktanalyse durchgefuehrt, um daraus die Anlagen zu identifizieren, die fuer ein Umweltzeichen in Frage kommen. Im Hauptteil der Studie ging es um die vertiefende Analyse der Umweltrelevanz der ausgewaehlten Anlagen. Hierzu wurde eine Herstellerbefragung durchgefuehrt und ausgeaehlte BHKW anhand eines Systemvergleiches mit Gas- und Oelheizkesseln verglichen. Auf der Basis dieser Analyse wurden Anforderungskataloge fuer Gas- und Diesel-BHKW-Module abgeleitet, die in einem Fachgespraech in einer breiten Runde von Experten und Herstellern vorgestellt und diskutiert wurden. Aus der Studie und dem Fachgespraech konnte ein deutliches Votum fuer ein Umweltzeichen fuer die untersuchten BHWK-Module abgeleitet werden. Die vorgeschlagenen Vergabegrundlagen umfassen Anforderungen an Richtlinienkonformitaet, rationelle Energienutzung (Elektrischer und Gesamtwirkungsgrad bei Nennlast und Teillast, Angabe des Hilfsstrombedarfes), Emissionswerte von CO, NO{sub x}, Staub und organischen Stoffen, Schallemissionen, Angebot von Wartungsvertraegen, Ruecknahmeverpflichtung sowie Anforderungen an die Bedienungsanleitung. Als moegliche Umschrift eines Zeichens fuer kleine BHKW-Module wird empfohlen: 'Umweltzeichen... weil energieefizient'. Neben motorischen BHKW wurden auch kleine Brennstoffzellen-BHKW untersucht.

    Before the liberalisation of the power market in the year 1998, there were no possibility and necessity to examine the remuneration of grid utilization of the grid operators in an isolated manner for its equity. The aim of the liberalisation of the power market was to prevent the monopolistic position of the local current providers. The final break-through for the examination of the remuneration of grid utilization was obtained at 18th October, 2005. At this day, the Federal High Court (Karlsruhe, Federal Republic of Germany) decided that the grid operator has to determine the payment according to cheaper discretion. The equity has to be a subject to a determination of a judicial verification. The principle of reasonability would concretize the criterion of cheap discretion in the range of application of the regulation paragraph 315 of the German Civil Code (BGB). The paragraph 23a of the Energy Economy Law (EnWG) now requires the permission of the Federal Network Agency or of the national regulation authorities for the definition of the remuneration of grid utilization. Doubts about are partly announced whether these regulated remunerations are a subject of verification after paragraph 315 BGB.

    Full Text Available The Francophone African detective novel uses absurdity to reveal with hurtful cruelty the fate and tragic existence of a people at the edge of abyss. Thus, in this detective novel, the character at first sets himself up as a distinct being, and the story progressively becomes a place of breakup of the original being. One then attends a strange world. In the Francophone detective novel, one deals with a universe in with the irrationality borders the magico-religious thought. This paper aims at showing that the Francophone detective novel gives the opportunity to see a social and political structure of the African society in which the religious unity and magical practices appear as the only expression of a shared spirituality. One might come to the conclusion that fantasy and absurdity in the Francophone detective novel permit to reproduce the image of a social chaos which is the result of a historical disaster that involves the impossibility to give certain logic to the reality.

    The FRJ-1 (MERLIN) research reactor was decommissioned in 1985 after twenty-three years of operation. Demolition of the plant was begun in 1996. The article contains a survey of the demolition steps carried out so far within the framework of three partial permits. The main activity is the demolition of the reactor core structures as a precondition for subsequent measures to ensure clearance measurements of the building. The core structures are demolished which were exposed to high neutron fluxes during reactor operation and now show the highest activity and dose rate levels, except for the core internals. For demolition and disassembly of the metal structures in this part of the plant, the tools specially designed and made include a remotely operated sawing system and a pipe cutting system for internal segmentation of the beam lines. The universal demolition tool for use also above and beyond the concrete structures has been found to be a remotely controlled electrohydraulic demolition shovel. Spreading contamination in the course of the demolition work was avoided. One major reason for this success was the fact that no major airborne contamination existed at any time as a consequence of the quality of the material demolished and also of the consistent use of technical tools. While the reactor block was being demolished, an application for clearance measurement of the reactor hall and subsequent release from the scope of the Atomic Energy Act was filed as early as in mid-2003. The fourth partial permit covering these activities is expected to be issued in the spring of 2004. (orig.)

    At the 'PV Rome' fair in mid-September 2011, many producers tried to promote their products 'made in EU'. Their motivation is clear: Since June, Italy has higher reimbursement rates for solar power systems that are 60 percent made in Europe. However, there is the problem that also many Asian manufacturers have similar certificates. The controversy shows that the Italian solar protectionism is impracticable.

    Without information technology and communication technology the daily operations do not work in a company. Server rooms and computer rooms are thermally high loaded rooms in a company. Therefore the data security includes air conditioning because the trouble-free operation of EDP devices requires an optimal climate control of the rooms.

    The matter the world is made of - it has nothing to do with reality as we know it, when physicists ofthe rank of Carlo Rovelli it consider. In this book he draws us a new picture of the world: about becoming and passing away of the universe, about a world without time, and the modern view on elementary particles, quantum mechanics, and black holes. Simultaneously he tells the history, how our world-knowledge has been developed over the millennia.

    Full Text Available Hintergrund: Es existieren widersprüchliche Daten hinsichtlich des Stellenwertes des männlichen Präputiums bzw. der Zirkumzision im Hinblick auf Erektionsfähigkeit und sexuelle Zufriedenheit des Mannes. Patienten und Methoden: 10.000 entsprechend der stadtbezogenen Altersstruktur ausgewählte Männer in Cottbus (Bundesland Brandenburg erhielten einen 35 Items umfassenden Fragebogen, der den International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF-6 und weitere Fragen zur sexuellen Lebensqualität, zu speziellen Erkrankungen und zu verschiedenen Operationen integrierte. 2499 der Männer, die den Fragebogen komplett ausfüllten, lebten in einer Partnerschaft und bildeten die Studiengruppe dieser Untersuchung. Anhand des IIEF-6 wurden 2 Studienendpunkte definiert (Punktwerte ≤ 25/SEP1 bzw. ≤ 21/SEP2 Punkte. Mittels multivariater logistischer Regressionsmodelle wurde der unabhängige Einfluss der Zirkumzision auf die beiden SEPs geprüft. Zudem wurde die Korrelation zwischen der sexuellen Zufriedenheit des Mannes und der Zirkumzision analysiert. Ergebnisse: 167 Männer der Studiengruppe waren zirkumzidiert (6,7 %. Die erektile Dysfunktion (ED betrug im SEP1 40,1 % (leichte-schwere ED und im SEP2 27,8 % (moderate-schwere ED. Einen unabhängigen Einfluss auf die ED wiesen sowohl für den SEP1 als auch den SEP2 die Kriterien Alter, Raucheranamnese, arterielle Hypertonie, Diabetes mellitus, chronisch-ischämische Herzerkrankung, periphere-arterielle Verschlusskrankheit, Leberzirrhose und Zustand nach beckenchirurgischem Eingriff auf. Die Zirkumzision zeigte keinen unabhängigen Einfluss auf die Studienendpunkte 1 (OR 1,36; p = 0,174 und 2 (OR 1,42; p = 0,175. Darüber hinaus bestand kein signifikanter Zusammenhang zwischen der sexuellen Zufriedenheit des Mannes und einer erfolgten Zirkumzision. Schlussfolgerungen: In dieser weltweit größten Fragebogenstudie zur männlichen ED, die sich des IIEF als hierfür validiertes Instrument bediente, konnte keine höhere ED-Prävalenz bei zirkumzidierten Männern festgestellt werden. Die sexuelle Zufriedenheit des Mannes war in dieser Untersuchung unabhängig vom Vorhandensein seines Präputiums.

    Within the scope of licensing procedures also the noise caused during plant construction is more and more discussed between project proponents and neighbours affected by the project. An essential point of criticism in this context is the fact that the regulation for the assessment of construction noise - the General Administrative Regulation on the Protection against Construction Noise (AVV Baulaerm) became effective already in 1970, and, naturally, the regulations are being debated today. A profound examination of the regulations of AVV Baulaerm shows that the requirements can be met when taking into account further standards. Thus, suitable methods exist to predict construction noise in an appropriate way. (orig.)

    630 women patients of the Bad Trissl clinic were admitted in 1987/88 to a prospective study to find out whether scintiscanning, or radionuclide imaging, of the skeleton can be omitted completely or in part in the after care and follow-up of carcinoma of the breast. The initial criterion was a postoperative carcinoma of the breast without metastasizing in the skeleton at the time the study began or the patient was admitted to the study. Careful pain anamnesis was performed by means of prepared questions, and a detailed clinical examination conducted to detect any pain in the skeleton of the patient concerned. This was followed by whole body scintiscanning of the skeleton and complementary X-ray films, if necessary additional examinations. It was found that clinical findings and imaging methods agreed in 545 patients. In 55 cases a finding that was clinically suspicious of metastases or doubtful, could be refuted by both scintiscan and by X-ray, osseous metastasizing would have been overlooked without skeleton scintiscan in 14 patients only (2.2%), 11 of these 14 patients were high-risk patients (negative hormonal receptor status, axillary lymph node metastases). Hence, it will be sufficient to employ scintiscanning in the aftercare and follow-up of carcinoma of the breast on a risk-adapted basis provided this is preceded by careful pain analysis and clinical examination. Failure to detect metastasizing in the skeleton will then occur in only 3 of 630 patients (0.48%). In this manner 40% of scintiscans can be omitted in future. (orig.).

    Full Text Available The reviewed book by Damien Nouvel, Maud Ehrmann, and Sophie Rosset Named Entities for Computational Linguistics deals with automatic processing of texts, written in a natural language, and with named entities recognition, aimed at extracting most important information in these texts. The notion of named entities here extends to the entire set of linguistic units referring to an object. The researchers minutely consider the concept of named entities, juxtaposing this category to that of proper names and comparing their definitions, and describe all the stages of creation and implementation of automatic text annotation algorithms, as well as different ways of evaluating their performance quality. Proper names, in this context, are seen as a particular instance of named entities, one of the typical sources of reference to real objects to be electronically recognized in the text. The book provides a detailed overview and analysis of previous studies in the same field, based mainly on the English language data. It presents instruments and resources required to create and implement the algorithms in question, these may include typologies, knowledge or databases, and various types of corpora. Theoretical considerations, proposed by the authors, are supported by a significant number of exemplary cases, with algorithms operation principles presented in charts. The reviewed book gives quite a comprehensive picture of modern computational linguistic studies focused on named entities recognition and indicates some problems which are unresolved as yet.

Various authors reflect on the current debate about the constructions and production of gender by referring to the special debate in natural and technical sciences. The female contributors test and criticise popular explications for gender differences. Other authors try to analyse the particular reasons why women might or might not be interested in technology and why women study technology or natural science less often than men.

    Full Text Available The techniques of massive data capture, as the Terrestrial Laser Scanner and the digital photogrammetry, allow to accurately analyze close objects and others that are not accessible, by statistical methods. Its application has allowed assessing, from the geometric point of view, the sculptures of the figure Clypeus of Tarragona, Jupiter-Ammon (1st century and the one of the Orvieto’s Cathedral rosette, with the face of Christ (14th century. The Clypeus of Tarragona and Orvieto’s rosette are divided in 22 parts, forming a polygonal shape known as icosakaidígono. This polygon does not appear in the Elementa of Euclides, neither in the Almagesto of Ptolomeo, nor in the rare Practica Geometriae of the time. These polygons can be built by means of angular division inherited from astrolabe and quadrant builders. This polygon can be defined also through the rotation of the square, since the repeated support of the catheti on the hypotenuse allows the rotation of the tool, or other indirect methods. The conclusion of the analysis of these figures is that, statistically, both sculptures have a geometric construction equal to the Reliquiario del Corporale del Miracolo di Bolsena (1337-1338 of Orvieto’s Cathedral.

    The results presented in this thesis provide a deeper insight in the physical properties of Ba{sub 1-x}K{sub x}Fe{sub 2}As{sub 2} and their connection among each other. By using a combination of high resolution X-ray diffraction, susceptibility measurements, and μSR, it was possible to unambiguously identify a microscopic coexistence of superconductivity and antiferromagnetism in underdoped Ba{sub 1-x}K{sub x}Fe{sub 2}As{sub 2} (up to x=0.23). This result strongly supports the assumption of an s± symmetry in the area 0f the phase diagram. These studies were extended to the optimally and overdoped Ba{sub 1-x}Na{sub x}Fe{sub 2}As{sub 2} up to x=0.66 generating a phase diagram displaying gradual transitions from long-range to short -range order instead of sharp borders. This magnetic order can be detected up to at last x=0.66, a value beyond the expected one (between 0.2 and 0.3). On Ba{sub 0.6}Na{sub 0.2}Fe{sub 2}As{sub 2} under pressure, a new antiferromagnetic order AFM2 was discovered, also displaying coexistence with superconductivity. In the second part of this thesis, Ba{sub 0.6}K{sub 0.4}Fe{sub 2}As{sub 2} was examined as material for the production of superconducting wires and tapes. Preliminary critical current density measurements of these prototype filaments are encouraging. To further investigate these wires, a new synthesis route was explored using mechanical alloying of the ternary precursors BaFe{sub 2}As{sub 2} and KFe{sub 2}As{sub 2} in order to obtain larger sample amounts.

Some of them are quoted and discussed in the paper. Thus, an attempt is made to answer the question why Humboldt liked to call himself "the old man from the mountains", and whether or not he found it appropriate to be called "Aristotle of our age."

    der Vergangenheit oft als waermetechnische Schwachstellen in der Aussenhuelle eines Gebaeudes angesehen. Steigende Anforderungen an den baulichen Waermeschutz wurden von allen Beteiligten als Herausforderung angenommen. Die Entwicklung neuer Verglasungen und verbesserter Rahmen machte es moeglich, auch nach Inkrafttreten der neuen Waermeschutzverordnung am 1. Januar 1995 grossflaechige Fenster und verglaste Fassadenelemente einzusetzen. Von wesentlicher Bedeutung ist in diesem Zusammenhang die jetzt moegliche Beruecksichtigung des Energiezugewinns von aussen ueber transparente Bauteile. Die einzelnen Komponenten von Fenstern, Fensterelementen und Leichtfassaden wie Rahmen, Verglasungen, Paneele und Zusatzbauteile, wie z.B. Rollaeden, muessen allerdings genau geplant werden. Neben den thermischen Eigenschaften sind auch stets die anderen Kriterien wie Brandschutz, Schallschutz, Sonnenschutz und Sicherheit zu beruecksichtigen. Die neuen Landesbauordnungen und die vom Deutschen Institut fuer Bautechnik gefuehrte Bauregelliste legen fest, welche Verwendbarkeits- und Uebereinstimmungsnachweise fuer die verschiedenen Bauprodukte wie Rahmen, Glas, Fenster, Rolladenkaesten, Heizkoerperabdeckungen usw. erforderlich sind. Dabei wird z.Zt. noch ueberwiegend auf nationale Regelwerke Bezug genommen. Zukuenftig werden jedoch mehr und mehr europaeische Normen fertiggestellt und auch eingefuehrt. Auch bei Fenstern und Verglasungen wird es hier einige entscheidende Veraenderungen geben. Waermebrueckeneffekte werden staerker beruecksichtigt. Fuer die Ermittlung von waermetechnischen Eigenschaften wird es verstaerkt die Moeglichkeit der Berechnung geben. Fenster und Verglasungen sind heute bei richtiger Planung und Ausfuehrung waermetechnisch hochentwickelte Bauprodukte, die auch in grossflaechigen Abmessungen energiesparendes Bauen ermoeglichen.

    Within the licensing procedure of offshore wind farms several environmental planning instruments have to be taken into account to assess the probable effects of turbines on the marine environment. So far only little experiences were available on how to fulfil legal and methodical demands with regard to these environmental planning instruments offshore. Hence it was the principle task of this project to analyse how instruments like the environmental impacts assessment (EIA), the habitats assessment and the strategic environmental assessment (SEA) can be adapted to the special conditions of the marine environment and the legal requirements of the licensing procedure in the German EEZ according to the offshore installations ordinance. Since according to the offshore installations ordinance the construction and operation of offshore wind farms can only be refused for environmental reasons when the marine environment is endangered, the project first investigated for different aspects of the marine environment (e.g. marine mammals, birds, benthos, visual landscape) which kind of conflicts can possibly be caused by the construction and operation of turbines and of which legal significance they are with regard to the licensing procedure. Referring to those environmental impacts which have been considered as relevant for the licensing procedure the state of knowledge has been investigated by means of expert interviews and literature research. Practicable starting points for the impact assessment were suggested. With regard to the required environmental assessment within the licensing procedure one result of the project is a structured documentation of the standard of knowledge (volume I). Further on the project developed proposals for the application of the planning instruments EIA, habitats assessment and SEA offshore based on legal regulations. The result is a catalogue of requirements regarding the content and proceedings of the instruments implementation in connection with the licensing of offshore wind farms and the identification of especially suitable areas for offshore wind farms (volume II-IV).

    The waste and material flow management must align progressively to the requirements of sustainable resource and climate protection targets. She has become a recycling economy. One of the key global challenges of the future is to ensure a sustainable, i.e. economically, environmentally and socially sustainable supply of raw materials and energy. In both areas, the recycling economy make an important contribution. For Germany, despite of the ambitious targets, a positive balance can be drawn. In particular, the positive environmental effects of prevention, recovery and disposal of waste are supported by numerous scientific studies. While the recycling economy has performed well in Germany, many countries in the world are still in the beginning of a sustainable waste management development. Our Chair for Waste and Material Flow Management at the Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences of the University of Rostock has been involved for over 15 years in international technology and knowledge transfer.

    Photovoltaics, heat pumps and fuel cells offer enormous potential for sustainable energy supply in residential buildings. Solar thermal energy and wood-fired boilers also play an important role in refurbishment. Due to the wide range of possible combinations, the wishes of building owners and homeowners for an ecologically and economically individually adapted energy concept can be fulfilled accurately. This book provides you with a holistic approach to the residential building and its supply of electricity, heat and water. All processes that play a role in the house's energy consumption are examined in their entirety for their potentials and potential savings. The author analyses and describes in detail the resources of buildings and their surroundings - and how they can be used for a truly independent supply. The focus is on reducing energy consumption and costs, the generation and supply of energy from renewable sources and energy storage - considered in new construction and modernisation. The supply of water is also dealt with if it touches on energy issues. The author draws attention to standards and regulations and gives practical advice for planning and installation. The focus is on the so-called sector coupling: electricity from the sun, wind and hydrogen is used to supply electrical consumers in the home, charging technology for electric vehicles, hot water and heating. The time of the boilers and combustion engines has elapsed. Clean electricity and digital controls - power and intelligence - determine the regenerative building technology.

    To investigate the efficacy and safety of umbilical cord blood (UCB) infusion (UCBI) plus immunosuppressive therapy (IST) treatment in comparison to IST treatment, as well as predictive factors for clinical responses, in severe aplastic anemia (SAA) patients. Totally, 93 patients with SAA were enrolled in this cohort study. In the IST group, rabbit antithymocyte globulin (r-ATG) combined with cyclosporine A (CsA) was administered, while in the IST+UBCI group, r-ATG, CsA, and UCB were used. After 6 months of treatment, UCBI+IST achieved a higher complete response (CR) rate (p=0.002) and an elevated overall response rate (ORR) (p=0.004), compared to IST. Regarding hematopoietic recovery at month 6, platelet responses in the UCBI+IST group were better than those in the IST group (p=0.002), and UCBI+IST treatment facilitated increasing trends in absolute neutrophil count (ANC) response (p=0.056). Kaplan-Meier curves illuminated UCBI+IST achieved faster ANC response (paplastic anemia (VSAA) and ANC could predict clinical responses as well. However, Cox proportional hazard regression indicated that VSAA (p=0.003), but not UCBI+IST, affected OS. Safety profiles showed that UCBI+IST therapy did not elevate adverse events, compared with IST treatment. UCBI+IST achieved better clinical responses and hematopoietic recovery than IST, and was well tolerated in SAA patients. © Copyright: Yonsei University College of Medicine 2018.

    This on-the-spot report gives an account of one day at the reactor operator's training centre of Kraftwerks-Simulator Gesellschaft in Essen, West-Germany. Heavy criticism is raised by the reporter who found out that none of the four simulators' computer programs includes the scenarios of accidents that may lead to severe reactor core damage. The conclusion drawn from this fact is that the West-German reactor operating personnel is just as incapable of managing a severe accident as their colleagues in Chernobyl. (DG).

    Full Text Available In 1786 in Rome, Johann Wolfgang Goethe wrote about him: “He is my younger brother; we art cut from the same mould. However, fate was against him, whereas I was fortune’s favourite.” He meant Karl Phillip Moritz (1756-1793, a German writer and art critic, Greek mythology historian, precursor of modern psychology and the author of psychological novel. If we assume that Goethe’s comments concern Moritz’s material and social status only, we would have to admit that Goethe was right. However, if we apply these judgments to the quality of his (Moritz’s works, we would be inclined to saying that in this case the great Goethe was wrong. In his aesthetic, Moritz is far more interesting and progressive than his “elder brother”; in his literary criticism – more consistent than Schiller, and in perceiving society and politics – more radical than Kant. This article is mainly on key concept regarding Moritz’s aesthetic works: the concept of beauty and its functionalism. Definition of “the work of art” as a closed, specified unity enables Moritz to get out of the frame of aesthetics itself and to enter the sphere of politics. Moritz liberates man from the restraints of utility and treats him as a noble individual who possesses the artistic value in himself.

    Full Text Available It can be argued that architectural knowledge was of crucial importance to Walter Benjamin for elaborating his version of an anthropological historical materialism. Between 1929 and 1931 he encounters two publications on architectural history which had a decisive impact on his ensuing works: Sigfried Giedion’s Bauen in Frankreich, Bauen in Eisen, Bauen in Eisenbeton (1928 and Carl Linfert’s Die Grundlagen der Architekturzeichnung (1931. It can be argued that both works played a role in affirming, if not developing his historical method of awakening the dreaming collective into a ‘now of recognisability,’ a method which one can argue is based on a specific image-based epistemology. Especially the architectural image, whether in the form of a printed drawing, photographic illustration, or an actual built object, appears to have been crucial for placing the history of media technologies (architecture being one of these media in a constellation with the ‘archaic symbol-worlds of mythologies.’ If architecture is, as Benjamin claims in his initial notes for The Arcades Project, ‘the most important testimony to latent “mythology,”’ the architectural image might very well be the agent that causes the moment of awakening, the instance when a constellation between technology and ancient symbol worlds is formed. In the second part of this essay, I will attempt to elaborate such a designation for the specificity of the architectural image by analysing a number of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s drawings and collages from the 1920s as architectural images in the Benjaminian sense.

    Chronic impaired venous outflow from the central nervous system has recently been claimed to be associated with multiple sclerosis (MS) pathology. This resulted in the term chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) in MS. The concept of CCSVI is based on sonography studies showing that impaired venous outflow leading to pathological reflux is almost exclusively present in MS patients but not in healthy controls. Based on these findings, a new pathophysiological concept has been introduced suggesting that chronic venous outflow obstruction and venous reflux in the CNS result in pathological iron depositions leading to inflammation and neurodegeneration. The theory of CCSVI in MS has rapidly generated tremendous interest in the media and among patients and the scientific community. In particular, the potential shift in treatment concepts possibly leading to an interventional treatment approach including balloon angioplasty and venous stent placement is currently being debated. However, results from recent studies involving several imaging modalities have raised substantial concerns regarding the CCSVI concept in MS. In this review article, we explain the concept of CCSVI in MS and discuss this hypothesis in the context of MS pathophysiology and imaging studies which have tried to reproduce or refute this theory. In addition, we draw some major conclusions focusing in particular on the crucial question as to whether interventional treatment options are expedient. In conclusion, the present conclusive data confuting the theory of CCSVI in MS should lead to reluctance with respect to the interventional treatment of possible venous anomalies in MS patients.

    In 2014 total CO{sub 2} emissions in Germany showed their first ever significant drop. In absolute terms they were as much as 5% lower than in the previous year, while corrected for temperature the decrease was still around 2%. Total greenhouse gas emissions are estimated to have decreased by 4.6% in absolute terms and by 1.7% when corrected for temperature. Judged on the basis of the temperature corrected values the results for 2014 do not yet signify a return to the target course running up to the year 2020 however. To this end greenhouse gas emissions would have had to decrease by at least around 3% in 2014. The need for political action to the protect our climate thus remains urgent.

    Full Text Available [english] Objectives: It was investigated how students judge the teaching of medical ethics and the history of medicine at the start and during their studies, and the influence which subject-specific teaching of the history, theory and ethics of medicine (GTE - or the lack thereof - has on the judgement of these subjects.Methods: From a total of 533 students who were in their first and 5 semester of the Bochum Model curriculum (GTE teaching from the first semester onwards or followed the traditional curriculum (GTE teaching in the 5/6 semester, questionnaires were requested in the winter semester 2005/06 and in the summer semester 2006. They were asked both before and after the 1 and 5 (model curriculum or 6 semester (traditional curriculum. We asked students to judge the importance of teaching medical ethics and the history of medicine, the significance of these subjects for physicians and about teachability and testability (Likert scale from -2 (do not agree at all to +2 (agree completely.Results: 331 questionnaire pairs were included in the study. There were no significant differences between the students of the two curricula at the start of the 1 semester.The views on medical ethics and the history of medicine, in contrast, were significantly different at the start of undergraduate studies: The importance of medical ethics for the individual and the physician was considered very high but their teachability and testability were rated considerably worse. For the history of medicine, the results were exactly opposite. GTE teaching led to a more positive assessment of items previously ranked less favourably in both curricula. A lack of teaching led to a drop in the assessment of both subjects which had previously been rated well.Conclusion: Consistent with the literature, our results support the hypothesis that the teaching of GTE has a positive impact on the views towards the history and ethics of medicine, with a lack of teaching having a negative impact. Therefore the teaching of GTE should already begin in the 1 semester. The teaching of GTE must take into account that even right at the start of their studies, students judge medical ethics and the history of medicine differently.[german] Zielsetzung: Es wurde untersucht, wie Studierende zu Beginn und im Verlauf ihres Studiums den Unterricht in Medizinethik und Medizingeschichte einschätzen und welchen Einfluss der durchgeführte bzw. fehlende fachspezifische Unterricht in Geschichte, Theorie und Ethik der Medizin (GTE auf die Wertschätzung der Fächer hat.Methodik: Befragt wurden im WS 2005/6 insgesamt 533 Studierende des 1. und 5.

Zwischen den Studierenden der beiden Studiengänge fanden sich zu Beginn des 1. Semesters keine signifikanten Unterschiede. Die Einschätzungen der Medizinethik und der Medizingeschichte unterschieden sich zu Beginn des Studiums jedoch signifikant: Die Bedeutung der Medizinethik für die eigene Person und für den Arzt wurde als sehr hoch eingeschätzt, deutlich schlechter ihre Lehr- und Prüfbarkeit. Für die Medizingeschichte waren die Ergebnisse genau entgegengesetzt.Durch den GTE-Unterricht verbesserten sich dann in beiden Studiengängen die Einschätzungen in den vorher weniger gut bewerteten Items. Fehlender Unterricht führte zur Verschlechterung der Einschätzung beider Fächer in den vorher gut bewerteten Items.Schlussfolgerung: Im Einklang mit der Literatur unterstützen unsere Ergebnisse die Hypothese, dass der GTE-Unterricht auf die Einschätzung von Geschichte und Ethik der Medizin positiv wirkt, fehlender Fachunterricht hingegen negativ. Deshalb sollte der GTE-Unterricht bereits im 1. Fachsemester beginnen und in beiden Studienabschnitten angeboten werden. Der GTE-Unterricht muss auf jeden Fall berücksichtigen, dass die Studierenden die Medizinethik und die Medizingeschichte schon zum Studienbeginn in ihrer Bedeutung unterschiedlich einschätzen.

All changes that have taken place in the society had impact on community pharmacy finance by worsening its profitability. Therefore, the stability of community pharmacy may be threatened and may affect its future performance.

  14. How to make an EEG allocation. The EEG allocation is not decided by solar growth rates but by politicians; Wir basteln uns eine EEG-Umlage. Wie hoch die EEG-Umlage wird, haengt weniger am Solarzubau, sondern ist eine politische Entscheidung

    In political discussions, the EEG allocation is still viewed as a reference point for the cost of financial incentives for renewable energy sources. However, there are many contributing factors of which the cost of renewables is only one. The most important aspects are privileges for industrial consumers, liquidity reserves, and stock exchange electricity prices. The contribution goes into detail.

  15. Mostly efficient as a tailor-made development. A manifold of criteria has to be considered in the selection of tube based heat exchangers; Als Massanfertigung am effizientesten. Bei der Wahl von rohrbasierten Waermeuebertragern ist eine Vielzahl an Kriterien zu beachten

    Till to now, heat exchangers can be evaluated only in combination with a central ventilation equipment for example. Contrary to fans or lamps they cannot be classified in favour of a simple selection. Thus, standard solutions are not recommended. For an increased energy efficiency, manufacturers of individually designed central ventilation systems also have to pay attention to the selection and configuration of the heat exchanger to a custom-made design.

    Actually biogas was out of the question for the dairy farmer Marco Friedrich farming about 200 acres of land. But then, the EEG 2012 (Energy Economy Law) came with the new category 'Manure - Farm - Biogas plant', enabling 25 Cents per kilowatt hour of electricity fed into the grid. In cooperation with the plant manufacturer Novatech GmbH (Wolpertshausen, Federal Republic of Germany), a biogas plant was built, which is described in detail in the contribution under consideration.

  18. Architectural practice and theory: the case of Bruno Taut's house in Berlin-Dahlewitz

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Paola Ardizzola

    2017-06-01

    Full Text Available In 1926 Bruno Taut built his own house in Berlin-Dahlewitz. The German architect had already declared his ideas of housing in the book Die neue Whonung (1924 exemplifying the new concept of modern living-style, according to Neues Bauen. In other theoretical writings he defines the Neues Bauen in relation with new needs, tendencies and aesthetics of architecture, referring to important issues as climate, topography and tradition. The book Ein Whonhaus (1927 stigmatizes the coeval construction process of his house: the thirteen chapters are a detailed analysis which give evidence to every technological and morphological choice. Taut focuses on the relationship between architecture and landscape, type of furniture, functional plan layout, use of glass; especially he enlightens the reader as to the use of colour as a construction material. The house has an unconventional shape, it is a quarter of a circle; in his writings the architect painstakingly explains the impressive plan. With the book Ein Whonhaus Taut delivers to memory his home design, transforming process and ideas related to the modern house. He breaks through conventions and changes the notions of what Modernism could produce. The paper highlights the theoretical production related to the architect’s own house as praxis for doing architecture, emphasizing Taut’s contribution to a dialectic mutual relationship between theoretical and architectural practice, in order to achieve a more conscious and effective design process.

    Leben gibt es auf der Erde seit fast 4 Mio. Jahren, trotz allen Katastrophen. Die Idee des Lebens scheint unsterblich. Der Tod aber offenbar auch. Jedes Lebewesen ist davon bedroht, ja für Menschen und andere "höhere“ Lebewesen ist er im Lebensprogramm eingebaut - todsicher. Diese Tatsache ist alles andere als selbstverständlich. Ist sie überhaupt kompatibel mit dem Prinzip der Evolution, nach dem der am besten Angepasste überlebt?

    Water management and water supply make demands on microbiology which so far were difficult to meet. However, new molecular-biological methods were developed by ecologically oriented scientists which open up new options in groundwater and freshwater analysis. [German] Aus dem Bereich der Wasserwirtschaft und -versorgung werden vermehrt Anforderungen und Fragen an die Mikrobiologie gestellt, die bisher aufgrund der eingeschraenkten methodischen Moeglichkeiten nur unzureichend beantwortet werden konnten.

    Full Text Available Wo ein Wille ist, ist auch ein Weg – ein Sprichwort, das bei der Digitalisierung von Kulturgut nicht immer gilt, wie dieser Artikel zeigt. Natürlich sind die Chancen der Digitalisierung allgemein bekannt. Der Weg zur Nutzung dieser Chancen ist allerdings nicht selten steinig. Eine Digitalisierung ist weder günstig, wie dieser Artikel vorrechnet, noch rechtlich immer unproblematisch. In der Praxis zeigt sich jedoch ein kreativer Umgang mit diesen Hürden – durch effiziente Ressourcennutzung, aber auch progressive Rechtsauslegungen oder Beteiligung an Gesetzesrevisionen. Mit diesem Willen ist man also, trotz ungünstiger Rahmenbedingungen, auf einem guten Weg, auch wenn dieser Geduld erfordert.
