    1997-12-31

    At present every time is more costly to generate the electric power utilized in all of the aspects of our society. The energy savings by means of a variable velocity device is focussed to the industrial sector, where the electric motor consumes a significant part of the total electricity utilized. The electric power suffers losses right from its generation stage, then through the transmission stage by means of the distribution networks and its conversion into mechanical energy. From these losses the more important ones are the first and the last stage, therefore the end users have a great savings potential by optimizing their electric power consumption. Evidently, the use of variable velocity devices in A.C. (also known as inverters o frequency variators) as well as in D.C. or rectifiers, have disadvantages, such as the generation of harmonics and noise on the power transmission lines inside the factory as well as in the city power lines. This paper discusses the savings that can be obtained by he use of these devices and how to counteract their disadvantages. [Espanol] En la actualidad es cada vez mas costoso producir la energia electrica que se utiliza en todos los aspectos de nuestra sociedad. El enfoque de ahorro de energia usando un variador de velocidad para motores, sera el sector industrial, donde los motores electricos constituyen una parte importante del consumo de electricidad. La energia electrica sufre perdidas desde su etapa de generacion, en su etapa de transmision por medio de redes de distribucion y en su transformacion a energia mecanica. De estas perdidas, las mas cuantiosas son la primera y la ultima etapa, por lo que los usuarios finales tienen un gran potencial de ahorro si optimizan su consumo de energia electrica. Por supuesto que el uso de variadores de velocidad tanto de C.A. (tambien conocidos como inversores o variadores de frecuencia), como de C.D. o rectificadores, tiene algunas desventajas, tal es el caso de la generacion de armonicas y ruido en las lneas de transmision tanto interiores a una planta o como a nivel local en una poblacion. En el presente articulo se estudiara que ahorros se pueden obtener usando estos equipos y como contrarrestar las desventajas de los mismos.

    Full Text Available La investigación se centró en analizar las variables que influyen en el logro de las ventajas competitivas en empresas pertenecientes al mercado gastronómico gourmet en La Serena, Chile. Para esto se construyó un modelo que relaciona la calidad de servicio, satisfacción, lealtad, vínculo relacional y ventaja competitiva, creando hipótesis entre las variables y validándolas con una muestra significativa de clientes. Para contrastar las hipótesis se utilizó el método de modelos estructurales a través del método basado en covarianza (MBC. Concluyendo que la ventaja competitiva en negocios de restaurante gourmet si bien depende significativamente de la lealtad de los clientes, esto mismo provoca que sea relevante que exista una gestión proactiva sistémica, centrada en la calidad de servicio y la satisfacción que se genera. Como consecuencia de lo anterior, además debe lograr un vínculo relacional con el cliente como consecuencia de la lealtad del mismo. Por lo tanto, en esta industria las empresas sólo tendrán un crecimiento sostenible sí la lealtad del cliente es un activo que asume un rol de cliente socio que contribuye en la creación de una propuesta de valor innovadora

Often, we dedicate much attention to the urban sector because it contains near 60% of the world population and generates and dynamics the contemporary economies. We talk much of the rural sector but do little to solve its problems, especially to bettering the quality of life of the poorest, which in global terms are living in the mountain areas of the world.In this paper I analyze the advantages and disadvantages of the mountain environments to sustainable human development that allows bettering the quality of life of their populations. I insist on resources quality and control and urban demand. I also point out to the infrastructure difficulties and its effects in the circulation of goods and services. The case study is settled at the Sierra of the Department of Piura, northwest Perú, where there is a rural population mostly dedicated to subsistence activities while in the coastal lowlands dominates commercial agriculture.El mundo rural y el urbano son los dos pilares que sostienen a una sociedad dentro de un territorio dado. Se viene dedicando considerable atención al sector urbano porque allí se concentra cerca del 60% de la población mundial y porque allí se generan y dinamizan las economías contemporáneas. Del sector rural se habla mucho y se hace poco, especialmente para mejorar la calidad de vida del subgrupo de los más pobres, que en términos globales se encuentran en los territorios montañosos del mundo.En esta ponencia se analizarán las ventajas y desventajas que presentan estos territorios para el desarrollo humano sostenible, que permita mejorar las condiciones de vida de sus poblaciones.

It is a natural material and it can be selected a great kind of textures and colours, visual, auditory tactile, smelling and gustative comfort is provided. Psychological factors are in favour of wooden constructions. Assembling and demolition cause less landscape impact. Nevertheless, Analytic method are based on physics and aesthetics components analysis. Physics components are walls materials, buildings distribution and services in buildings. Aesthetics components are shape, sacale. line and colour in a first group and texture in a second. Otherwise the texture wood has different posibilities, its own nature, finished treatement and boards position.

    La conservación de los valores estéticos del paisaje cobran cada día más importancia; en este aspecto las construcciones en madera aportan una serie de ventajas. Para analizar el impacto de las construcciones contamos con dos métodos: Sintético y Analítico. En el primero, basado en el estudio de pares de fotografías, encontramos que la madera tiene una serie de ventajas: es un material natural, ofrece una variedad de colores y texturas, posee confortabilidad visual, auditiva, táctil, olfativa y gustativa, intervienen favorablemente factores sicológicos, se provoca un menor impacto paisajístico a la hora del montaje con un envejecimiento más noble y, llegado el momento, una mayor facilidad para su demolición. El Analítico, sin embargo, se basa en el estudio de los componentes físicos y estéticos. Dentro de los componentes físicos se consideran los materiales, los cerramientos y la distribución de los edificios y obras accesorias. En los componentes estéticos hablamos de la

    Full Text Available Careers in research can have a significant effect on the chances of scientists’ success. This effect, also known as cumulative advantage, contributes to skewing the unequal distribution of both production and impact among scientists. This paper focuses on determining whether the cumulative advantage is present within a sample of 174 Spanish scientists doing research in four major areas (i.e.: physics, chemistry, biology and biochemistry. In order to determine the impact of their careers in research, we specify a multi-equational model. Among other variables, we include those related with their doctoral training, the postdoctoral period and the quality of the departments where scientists are hired after they finish their post doctoral work. Moreover, the model includes a group of hypotheses gathered from a survey of the literature on this topic. The model is based on the Path Analysis technique. We also have developed a method to determine the quality of academic departments using a single scale suitable for any country and discipline. The main result confirms the existence of cumulative advantage being the predoctoral productivity the main determinant of productivity during the ten years after obtaining the doctor degree. Finally, a bias in productivity and impact in favour of men is observed.

    Full Text Available Las enfermedades transmitidas por alimentos, ocasionadas por microorganismos patógenos, constituyen un grave problema de salud pública a nivel mundial. Los métodos microbiológicos utilizados comúnmente en la detección de estos patógenos, de origen alimentario, son laboriosos y consume mucho tiempo. Esta situación, aunada a la demanda por resultados inmediatos y a los avances tecnológicos, ha conducido al desarrollo de una amplia gama de métodos rápidos en las últimas décadas. En base a esto, la presente revisión describe las ventajas y limitaciones de los principales métodos moleculares utilizados en la detección e identificación de microorganismos patógenos transmitidos por alimentos. Para ello, se consideró la actualidad de la información consultada, el análisis objetivo de la temática y su alcance. La literatura reciente reporta un número significativo de técnicas moleculares, alternativas, sensibles y selectivas para la detección, enumeración e identificación de microorganismos patógenos en alimentos, siendo la reacción en cadena de la polimerasa (PCR la plataforma más popular, mientras que la secuenciación de alto rendimiento se perfila como una técnica de gran aplicabilidad a futuro. Sin embargo, aun con todas las ventajas que ofrecen estas novedosas metodologías, no se deben pasar por alto sus limitaciones. Así, por ejemplo, los métodos moleculares no constituyen protocolos estandarizados, lo que dificulta su utilización en algunos casos. Por esta razón se debe trabajar arduamente para superar tales limitaciones y mejorar la aplicación de estas técnicas en matrices tan complejas como los sistemas alimenticios.

    Full Text Available Las teorías tradicionales del comercio exterior no son capaces de explicar la evolución del intercambio comercial derivado del proceso de globalización, por lo que se han desarrollado nuevas vetas explicativas, algunas de las cuales han enfatizado los conceptos de competencia y competitividad. De manera colateral, el tratamiento teórico del crecimiento económico local ha ido adoptando los nuevos arquetipos de la teoría del comercio internacional. El propósito del presente artículo es discutir las principales aportaciones que han pugnado por explicar el significado de competencia y competitividad en la escala empresarial, de país y de ciudad, así como los distintos postulados sobre los determinantes de la competitividad territorial o ventajas competitivas. La revisión de conceptos se complementa con una propuesta conceptual y operativa de los determinantes explicativos de la competitividad local y un ejercicio exploratorio de aplicación empírica sobre la competitividad industrial en 30 ciudades del país.

    Sonia Alonso

    2008-01-01

    Full Text Available Este trabajo se pregunta si el hecho de apelar a identidades supuestamente primordiales, y por tanto fuertemente arraigadas y estables, ha aportado a los partidos nacionalistas alguna ventaja competitiva a lo largo del tiempo frente a otros partidos políticos basados en otras identidades, como las de clase o las religiosas. Para ello, el trabajo compara los partidos nacionalistas y no nacionalistas de los gobiernos regionales de Canadá, Dinamarca, España, Italia y Reino Unido, centrándose en tres indicadores empíricos: el rendimiento electoral, la fluctuación de los niveles de voto y la duración de los partidos gobernantes en el gobierno. Los resultados muestran que los partidos no nacionalistas son, en general, más severamente castigados que los partidos nacionalistas, especialmente en gobiernos de coalición. En términos de duración en el gobierno, sin embargo, no se aprecian diferencias significativas entre los partidos nacionalistas y los que no lo son.

    2009-06-01

    Full Text Available El concepto de ventaja competitiva ha evolucionado de manera acelerada en los últimos años. Algunos académicos y ejecutivos sostienen que las personas son el elemento fundamental para la construcción de la misma. En esta línea, la gestión de las empresas ha mostrado una inclinación hacia el manejo de los recursos humanos –denominados también «talentos» – como elemento clave de su éxito organizacional. En este trayecto, las ideas, los paradigmas y las concepciones se han modificado de manera interesante. Este texto trata de plantear estas nuevas concepciones frente al reto de gestionar una organización, y propone un modelo de gestión basado en la importancia de las personas en la administración de la ventaja competitiva.

    2003-12-01

    Full Text Available Given its simplicity and low cost compared to other types of methodologies, the measurement and interpretation of Electrochemical Noise, is consolidating itself as one of the analysis methods most frequently used for the interpretation of corrosion. As the technique is still evolving, standard treatment methodologies for data retrieved in experiments do not exist yet. To date, statistical analysis and the Fourier analysis are commonly used in order to establish the parameters that may characterize the recordings of potential and current electrochemical noise. This study introduces a new methodology based on wavelet analysis and presents its advantages with regards to the Fourier analysis in distinguishing periodical and non-periodical variations in the signal power in time and frequency, as opposed to the Fourier analysis that only considerers the frequency.

    Por su sencillez y bajo coste frente a otros tipos de metodologías, la medida e interpretación del Ruido Electroquímico, REQ, se está consolidando como uno de los métodos de análisis más utilizados para la interpretación del fenómeno de la corrosión. Al ser una técnica en desarrollo, no existen todavía metodologías estandarizadas de tratamiento de los datos obtenidos en los experimentos. Hasta la fecha, se suelen utilizar el análisis estadístico y el análisis de Fourier para establecer parámetros que puedan caracterizar a los registros de ruido electroquímico de potencial e intensidad. En este trabajo se introduce una nueva metodología basada en el análisis Wavelet que presenta las ventajas, respecto del análisis de Fourier, de poder distinguir variaciones periódicas y no periódicas de la potencia de la señal tanto en el dominio del tiempo, como en el de la frecuencia, y no sólo en el dominio de la frecuencia como ocurre en el caso del análisis de Fourier.

    2010-12-01

    Full Text Available INTRODUCCIÓN. Desde 1957 la expansión tisular se ha convertido en una técnica muy utilizada en cirugía reconstructiva, pues permite obtener gran cantidad de tejido blando para corregir defectos cutáneos. En Cuba se ha publicado muy poco sobre la utilización de expansores cutáneos de la región frontal para la reconstrucción nasal. El objetivo de este trabajo fue caracterizar la utilidad del colgajo frontal expandido, para la reconstrucción de defectos nasales distales de espesor total en pacientes con frente corta. MÉTODOS. Se realizó un estudio descriptivo, prospectivo, con pacientes con defectos nasales secundarios a cirugía oncológica, traumatismos y otras causas, a los que se les practicó una reconstrucción nasal con colgajo frontal expandido en el Instituto Nacional de Oncología y Radiobiología y el Hospital «Hermanos Ameijeiras», entre junio de 1999 y mayo de 2007. RESULTADOS. Hubo una ganancia promedio de 1,0 cm en longitud del colgajo frontal expandido con respecto al diseño oblicuo sin expansión. Se logró la reconstrucción de la cubierta cutánea en todos los casos, incluso en los defectos más distales, como los del ala nasal. El cierre de la zona donante siempre fue de forma directa. CONCLUSIONES. Se pudo caracterizar la utilidad del colgajo frontal expandido en la muestra estudiada y se encontró entre sus ventajas fundamentales la ganancia en longitud con respecto a la distancia vertical de la frente. Concordamos con la mayoría de los autores en cuanto a su utilidad, siempre que esté indicado y disponible, y en que es un recurso alternativo cuando existe poco tejido disponible para la reconstrucción de los defectos nasales.INTRODUCTION. From 1957, the tissues expansion has becomes a very used technique in reconstructive surgery, since allows to obtain abundant soft tissue to correct cutaneous defects.

    Full Text Available Existen controversias acerca de las posibles ventajas del abordaje transperitoneal vs. extraperitoneal en la cirugía de aneurisma de aorta abdominal; con este último, algunos estudios reportan menor morbilidad y complicaciones operatorias. Este estudio describe los resultados que se obtuvieron con los dos abordajes en un solo centro de referencia. Es un estudio retrospectivo, descriptivo, de doce años, en un grupo de 299 pacientes con diagnóstico de aneurisma de aorta abdominal que fueron intervenidos de manera electiva y distribuidos en dos grupos según el abordaje (transperitoneal = grupo 1, extraperitoneal = grupo 2. En total se operaron 93 pacientes en el grupo 1 y 206 pacientes en el 2. En ambos predominaron pacientes del sexo masculino. La edad media fue de 68 años. Las frecuencias de co-morbilidades fueron similares en los dos grupos. Se registró una tendencia a menor número de reoperaciones en el grupo 2 (12,9% vs. 5,8%, De otra parte, se observó una tendencia de mayores complicaciones post-operatorias en el grupo 1 con una frecuencia de 30,1% vs. 12,6% en el grupo 2; sin embargo, el tipo de complicaciones fue similar. Los resultados mostraron una estancia hospitalaria media de 13,3 días (DE ± 10,4 vs. 7,19 días (DE ± 4,20 p= 0,00001, estancia post-operatoria media de 9,16 días (DE ± 8,1 vs. 5,62 días (DE ± 3,46 p= 0,001 y estancia en la unidad de cuidados intensivos media de 2,76 días (DE ± 4,19 vs. 1,56 días (DE ± 1,86 p= 0,00001 en los grupos 1 y 2 respectivamente. La mortalidad inmediata total fue de 3,3%. La frecuencia de mortalidad para los grupos fue de 6,5% (n= 6 vs. 1,9% (n= 4 respectivamente. En nuestra experiencia el abordaje por la vía extraperitoneal presenta una tendencia favorable para los pacientes en cuanto a la estancia hospitalaria, la estancia en la unidad de cuidados intensivos, la frecuencia de complicaciones post-operatorias y la frecuencia de re-intervenciones en el post-operatorio inmediato

Su uso ha sido marginal tanto dentro de la sociología argentina como iberoamericana. La EFE se caracteriza por incluir fotografías durante el transcurso de una entrevista con el propósito de favorecer el diálogo entre entrevistadores y entrevistados, y facilitar recuerdos y la expresión de sentimientos y perspectivas. A partir de la experiencia de investigadores en Estados Unidos e Inglaterra y de los resultados de una investigación propia, se argumenta que la EFE puede enriquecer notablemente el estudio de ciertos fenómenos sociales -tales como las perspectivas de los jóvenes sobre la escuela y sobre sí mismos-, y se brindan elementos para una evaluación crítica de la EFE en estudios producidos en nuestras latitudes. En primer lugar, a partir de la revisión de literatura especializada anglosajona, se examina el alcance, limitaciones y ventajas de la EFE en investigación social. Seguidamente, se describe el uso de materiales visuales en la sociología argentina y se analiza una investigación desarrollada en Buenos Aires. Este caso permite ilustrar ventajas, desventajas y desafíos de la EFE, evidenciando características comunes al contexto anglosajón y otras específicas a sociedades en vías de desarrollo.

    Full Text Available Mirar las organizaciones desde un enfoque sistémico, permite verlas como un conjunto de partesinteractuantes e interdependientes que en su dinámica conforman un sistema mayor que es lasociedad. Desde esta perspectiva puede comprenderse que cada organización afecta y es afectadapor el entorno en el cual se desenvuelve y que esta mutua relación —de beneficio o perjuicio—determina, en un alto grado, su supervivencia. Ésta es una forma de entender lo que hoy seconoce como Responsabilidad social; sin embargo, este concepto tiene antecedentes desde finalesdel siglo XIX y diversas manifestaciones a lo largo del siglo XX. Más recientemente los efectosnegativos de la globalización, entre otras razones, han forzado el surgimiento de normas, códigosde conducta, guías y otras acciones orientadas a contrarrestar dichos efectos buscando crearcondiciones de vida laboral y social más dignas.El cumplimiento de la responsabilidad por parte de cada organización es un imperativo ético,moral y social pues es desde el cumplimiento de ésta como se contribuye al fortalecimiento y/o recuperación del Tejido Social y a la construcción de lo que se conoce como Capital Social. Toda organización debe cumplir responsabilidades sociales tanto en su interior, conel personal que en ella labora, como con los distintos sectores con los cuales interactúaconocidos hoy como Stakeholders.Approaching organizations from a systemic point of view allows us to see them as a group of interactive and interdependent parts of a larger system called society. This perspective lets us understand that each organization simultaneously affects and is affected by its environment, and this reciprocal relationship —of benefit or damage— largely determines its survival. This paper intends to explain, in a certain way, what is known today as social responsibility, although this concept has antecedents that go back to the end of the Nineteenth century and diverse

  17. Incumbents without a Campaign Finance Advantage: Competition and Money in Chile’s Congressional Elections Sin una ventaja financiera: Incumbentes y el gasto electoral en las elecciones parlamentarias de Chile

    Full Text Available Research from various countries has shown that incumbents in legislative elections raise and spend more money when they face a tougher contest. A statistical analysis of Chilean candidates’ campaign finance disclosures shows the opposite: an inverse relationship between incumbent spending and electoral competitiveness. This occurs because Chile’s deputies are relatively limited in their influence over policy and pork and because the congressional electoral system makes most competitive contests relevant only to the intra-coalitional balance of power. This account implies that political finance is as much a function of political systems and the supply of contributions as it is candidates’ demand for funds, and motivates several hypotheses about campaign finance in Chile. Among others, the analysis confirms that incumbents and challengers compete on a level playing field, spending similar amounts of campaign finance. The paper also illustrates that incumbents and challengers fare equally well in Chile’s “secret” donation system.Estudios en varios países han demostrado que los incumbentes en las elecciones legislativas recaudan y gastan más dinero cuando se enfrentan a una competencia más dura. No obstante, el análisis estadístico del financiamiento electoral de candidatos chilenos demuestra lo contrario: una relación inversa entre los gastos de los incumbentes y la competitividad electoral. Esto ocurre porque los diputados son relativamente limitados en su influencia sobre políticas públicas e incluso en la dispensa de favores canalizados (pork-barrel y porque el sistema binominal hace que la competencia suceda principalmente al interior de coaliciones. La implicación lógica es que el financiamiento político es tanto una función del sistema político y de la oferta de contribuciones de campaña, como de la demanda de los candidatos por esos fondos, hecho que motiva la presentación de varias hipótesis sobre la financiaci

    Full Text Available Electronic commerce has been one of the most active fields of investigation in Information Technology in the last few years. It would be interesting to find out which critical factors keep electronic commerce from achieving success and which factors would be regarded as a sustainable competitive advantage for companies. In this investigation we have developed a model for the achievement of success in electronic commerce based on what is proposed by DeLone and McLean regarding the current model to achieve success in Information Systems, tested by the AMOS (Analysis of Moment Structures, through a sample of 55 Paraguayan companies. As for the bibliography used, we have performed a meta-analysis study with the purpose of identifying the most relevant journals, with their respective current authors and the indicators that represent the importance to the project. The results have yielded valuable conclusions to the Paraguayan reality as only two of the 10 indentified critical factors for success were detected: “Experts in information technology (IT and infrastructure” and “Interoperability of the system”. These are regarded as factors which have been converted into a timely competitive advantage but not into a sustainable competitive advantage through time, due to reasons such as a lack of experts in information technology (IT, particularly regarding the knowledge of electronic commerce and the sluggishness of development of electronic commerce which carries out online activities.

  19. Ventajas y desventajas del bilingüismo

    Alfredo Ardila

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Las personas bilingües tienen que coordinar dos sistemas lingüísticos. Esto implica algunas ganancias, pero también un costo. Las ganancias del bilingüismo incluyen: un incremento de la flexibilidad mental; una superioridad en el desarrollo de aquellas funciones cognitivas relacionadas con la atención y la inhibición; el uso de una cantidad mayor de estrategias cognoscitivas en la solución de problemas; un aumento de la llamada conciencia metalingüística; y una habilidad mayor de comunicación. Entre los costos del bilingüismo se menciona: cierto retraso aparente en la adquisición del lenguaje; una interferencia entre ambos sistemas fonológicos, léxicos y gramaticales; y un posible decremento en el vocabulario en las dos lenguas. Se concluye que existe una gran variabilidad de experiencias lingüísticas en las personas bilingües y un gran número de variables afecta su ejecución en diferentes tareas intelectuales.

    Full Text Available A nonlinear robust control-system design framework predicated on a hierarchical switching controller architecture parameterized over a set of moving nominal system equilibria is developed. Specifically, using equilibria-dependent Lyapunov functions, a hierarchical nonlinear robust control strategy is developed that robustly stabilizes a given nonlinear system over a prescribed range of system uncertainty by robustly stabilizing a collection of nonlinear controlled uncertain subsystems. The robust switching nonlinear controller architecture is designed based on a generalized (lower semicontinuous Lyapunov function obtained by minimizing a potential function over a given switching set induced by the parameterized nominal system equilibria. The proposed framework robustly stabilizes a compact positively invariant set of a given nonlinear uncertain dynamical system with structured parametric uncertainty. Finally, the efficacy of the proposed approach is demonstrated on a jet engine propulsion control problem with uncertain pressure-flow map data.

    Full Text Available The paper analyzes the ideas put forward by Shugart and Carey (1992 and Mainwaring and Shugart (1997 regarding the combined effect of presidential electoral systems and the timing of the parliamentary elections over political representation and governability. The hypotheses of these authors are contrasted with the results of Latin American presidential elections (1996-2000. The conclusion is reached that, as expected, the timing of presidential and parliamentary elections and the electoral system for president tend to influence the chance that the party or coalition of the president has a sizeable or majority parliamentary representation.El trabajo analiza los planteamientos desarrollados por Shugart y Carey (1992 y Mainwaring y Shugart (1997 con relación al efecto que sobre la gobernabilidad y la representatividad tienen las distintas combinaciones de sistema electoral para presidente de la República con la fecha en que se realizan las elecciones legislativas (simultáneas o separadas con las presidenciales, confrontando las hipótesis que se derivan de estos análisis con los resultados de las elecciones presidenciales celebradas en los países de América Latina entre 1996 y 2000.

    Full Text Available La calidad eléctrica juega un papel importantísimo en las redes eléctricas de hoy en día. Por esta razón, es de vital importancia contar con herramientas adecuadas que permitan una eficaz detección de anomalías o perturbaciones en dichos sistemas eléctricos. Frente a las técnicas usadas tradicionalmente, como la transforma de Fourier, hoy en día se están desarrollando nuevos métodos basados en transformadas de dominio, como la Transformada Wavelet o la Transformada S, unido a técnicas basadas en inteligencia artificial como la lógica difusa o las redes neuronales. En este artículo se hace un repaso, a la vez que se discuten estas nuevas técnicas, situándolas en contexto con las técnicas tradicionales y poniendo de manifiesto la superioridad y precisión que se consigue aplicando estos nuevos paradigmas matemáticos. Se detalla, fundamentalmente, la Transformada S y la Wavelet como herramienta de gran proyección y futuro en el análisis de la calidad eléctrica debido a su precisión, inmunidad al ruido e información de calidad que aporta.

    Full Text Available Este artículo pretende conocer la percepción de estudiantes de secundaria sobre las posibilidades y problemas de la utilización de las Tecnologías de la Información (TIC en su experiencia extraescolar. El trabajo consiste en un estudio cualitativo, mediante la técnica de entrevista en profundidad. Participan veinte adolescentes de segundo ciclo de ESO de Aragón, de colegios de titularidad tanto pública como privada. Los resultados revelan un uso predominantemente instrumental, volcado hacia los iguales, con finalidad principalmente comunicativa, centrado en el móvil. Valoran positivamente las TIC como fuente de información para las tareas escolares; y, por supuesto, como entretenimiento. En cuanto a las desventajas cotidianas destaca la pérdida de tiempo, la dependencia excesiva y la inseguridad. Como conclusión, esta ambivalencia entre una visión positiva general y la conciencia y necesidad de un uso responsable y moderado no sólo recupera el papel de la familia y la escuela, sino que lo refuerza como guías cualificados de un aprendizaje con sentido de las TIC.

    In this document some papers about the development of solid and liquid desiccant cooling systems and dehumidification are analyzed. In a desiccant cooling cycle, the desiccant reduces the quantity of humidity of the air and temperature is decreases by others components such as heat exchangers, cooling evaporatives or conventional coolers. The main advantage of this systems is the capacity to use a low-grade thermal energy. These systems are being used in residence and commercial constructions to reduce energy and to optimize costs, however the initial cost is significantly higher that the conventional cooling systems. Recent studies have been focused in analyzing desiccant cooling systems, through computer modeling.

En el ciclo de enfriamiento en el desecante, el desecante reduce la cantidad de humedad del aire y la temperatura se reduce por medio de otros componentes tales como intercambiadores de calor, enfriadores evaporativos o enfriadores convencionales. La ventaja principal que ofrecen estos sistemas es la capacidad de utilizar una baja cantidad de energia termica. Estos sistemas estan siendo utilizados en edificaciones habitacionales y comerciales para reducir el consumo de energia y optimizar costos, sin embargo el costo inicial es significativamente mas alto que los sistemas de enfriamiento convencionales. Estudios recientes se han enfocado en analizar estos sistemas de enfriamiento con desecantes, a traves de la modelacion por computadora.

    Full Text Available La fase final de toda cirugía es la sutura y su cicatriz correspondiente y, frecuentemente, ésta es la única secuela visible de una intervención. La técnica LASH (cicatrización cutánea asistida por láser, estimula los mecanismos de reparación de la piel por efecto térmico, condicionando la calidad de la cicatrización. Estudios experimentales en ratones comparando los resultados obtenidos en heridas quirúrgicas radiadas con laser diodo 810 nm tras ser suturadas, con los obtenidos en igual tipo de heridas suturadas de manera convencional, han demostrado que se consiguen cicatrices mucho menos visibles cuando se practica el tratamiento con láser. La histología confirma, comparativamente, una notable aceleración del proceso cicatricial con modificación del TGFβ (Transforming Growth Factor-Beta directamente implicado en la reparación tisular, en los animales en los que la sutura fue asistida por láser. Igualmente, el análisis tensiométrico demostró mayor resistencia a la acción de estiramiento mecánico en estas heridas. Estudios clínicos en pacientes sometidos a dermolipectomia, reducción mamaria y estiramiento facial, demuestran que al tratar con LASH una parte o una de las líneas de sutura, los análisis realizados tanto por los pacientes como por cirujanos independientes a los 8 días, 3 meses y un año, evidencian resultados más favorables para la técnica láser, Las dosis eficaces determinadas para las fluencias láser están entre 80 y 120 J/cm². La técnica LASH es simple de efectuar, reproducible, rápida y ofrece una clara evidencia de que es posible reducir considerablemente la cicatriz, logrando que ésta sea de mejor calidad y más estética.

LASH technique (Laser Assisted Scar Healing produces thermal effects to stimulate mechanisms for tissue repair that will determine the quality of the scar. In the experimental phase, rats were irradiated with 810 nm diode-laser after surgical wounds were sutured, and then, compared to another group of rats with the same type of wounds which were sutured with conventional techniques. The results were that those rats treated with laser had less visible scars. Histology comparatively confirmed a notable acceleration in the scarring process with modification of the TGFβ (Transforming Growth Factor-Beta, which is directly involved in tissue repair in those rats treated with laser. The tensiometric analysis also demonstrated a better resistance to mechanical stress of wounds. Clinically, in dermolipectomy patients, breast reductions and facial lifts, in which part of the sutures were treated with LASH, at 8 days, 3 months and 1 year controls, evaluated by independent surgeons to the study and by patients, statistical results were more favourable for patients treated with LASH technique. The effective doses determined for treatment were laser fluencies between 80 and 120 J/cm². LASH is a fast, simple to carry out and reproducible method, with clear evidence that it is possible to considerably reduce scars, giving them a better quality and aesthetic appearance.

    Full Text Available Las levaduras juegan un papel muy importante en los procesos de fermentación de bebidas yalimentos, por lo que es necesario identificarlas. A finales de los años 90 se propuso la técnica de análisis delpolimorfismo en la longitud de los fragmentos de restricción (RFLP de las regiones ITS-5.8S como una herramienta rápida y confiable para identificarlas. En este trabajo se analizaron 104 cepas de Saccharomyces cerevisiae de la colección de CIATEJ. Además se analizaron los patrones de bandas publicados hasta el momento para levaduras, lo que nos permitió establecer el parámetro de error de dicha técnica. A partir de este análisis se comprobó que esta técnica es rápida y confiable en la gran mayoría de los casos, sin embargo para algunas especies de levaduras existen ambigüedades en los patrones publicados o no permite diferenciar especies cercanas.

    Full Text Available El presente artículo tiene como objetivo aportar algunas reflexiones alrededor de la contratación laboral de los empleados de la construcción en Colombia. Se empleó como metodología la revisión del marco normativo actual del régimen de contratación laboral en Colombia, específicamente para el caso de empleados de la construcción; contrastando la información con otras fuentes tales como: la Cámara Colombiana de la Construcción (Camacol, Ministerio de Trabajo y la Intergremial de la Construcción y la Madera (ICM. Se concluye que en el actual sistema de contratación para empleados de la construcción vienen dándose numerosas irregularidades en los procesos inserción laboral en el sector que aumentan la informalidad y la subcontratación; cuyas desventajas recaen tanto en el empleado al ser más frecuente la vulneración de sus derechos laborales, como en las empresas constructoras, al aumentar sus gastos tanto en la subcontratación de personal como en el pago de las posibles sanciones legales ocasionadas por los desaciertos en los procesos de contratación.

    Full Text Available Experimental research was made in compressed soil block (BTC piles. These specimens were reinforced with hexagonal mesh and welded wire mesh to determinate its mechanics characteristics by means of axial and diagonal compression, and flexion tests. We made experimental assays in accord with Mexican Code specifications of NTCM(1 and UNAM(2 Engineering Institute researchers. In axial compression test, the piles reinforced with welded wire mesh had a significant increase in maxim admissible load (39% but had not in masonry strength (4%. In diagonal compression test, the reinforced groups had significant increases in both, load capacity (90-125% and masonry strength (60-83%. The strength and deformation capacity were higher in specimens reinforced with welded wire mesh. In the flexion test had similar results. Although the compression, shear and flexion design parameters was determinate, it’s important and necessary to make more tests to corroborate these results.

    It there is anything that distinguished Iberdrola Ingeneria y Construccion, as part of the Iberdrola Group, it is its firm commitment to innovation and continuous improvement. This is the philosophy that led the company to its interest in three-dimensional design tools back when they were in an early stage of development : very little international implementation, lack of integration with other applications, absence of previous experiences to understand the best possible configuration for each case, etc. Nevertheless, the company was able to see the tremendous advantage of having a construction program in the early months of a project- a detailed program that could predict, and therefore avoid, the problems that, if not anticipated, would arise in the construction phase when they result in higher costs, longer time frames and a multitude of complications. This is precisely what 3D design tools offer prediction and this has been proven in the latest combined cycle projects executed with these tools. A project executed without errors not only decreases cost and time overruns, but also necessarily increases the quality of the end result. Efficiency and quality: these are both basic goals of Iberdrola Ingenieria y Construccion. The knowledge of and skill in the use of these tools have grown at the same time that their development has reached increasingly higher levels. As a result, Iberdrola Ingenieria y Conctruccion now has intensive experience in the use of 3D design tools and is preprared for the future challenges posed by these tools, the capabilities of which have attained such heights that it is possible to take on one of the most technically challenging projects that exists a nuclear power plant. And we are ready. (Author)

El desarrollo de la conceptualización de la intangibilidad del Aceite de Oliva responde a una estrategia de reposicionamiento del producto ante la competencia en un escenario de globalización de los mercados.Limitaciones: El estudio parte de la limitación del uso de un método estadístico con un margen de confiabilidad exigente, pero difuso en la realidad, teniendo en cuenta que el impacto del consumo del Aceite de Oliva en el mundo es de tan sólo el 5% en el mercado de grasas vegetales.Implicaciones prácticas: El trabajo expone las características intangibles que tiene el Aceite de Oliva, más allá de lo meramente alimenticio. Esta caracterización no es algo nuevo, es simplemente una conceptualización de aspectos tan cotidianos que no se le da la importancia que verdaderamente tienen, sobre todo, como elementos de diferenciación ante la competencia en un mercado tan feroz como el que vivimos. El posicionamiento comercial de un producto necesita de nuevas estrategias de diferenciación y el Aceite de Oliva puede utilizar los intangibles que conforman su significado para, cuando menos, justificar que el precio sea mayor que otras grasas vegetales.Implicaciones sociales: El sector oleícola está en una situación de debilidad ante la depresión comercial importante que estamos viviendo, y ello arrastra a los olivicultores que dedican su trabajo a la producción de Aceite de Oliva, la mayoría implantados en el medio rural, lo que le infiere un impacto social importante por la gran pérdida de rentas que están sufriendo en los últimos años.Originalidad / Valor añadido: El Aceite de Oliva es un producto característico de la cultura mediterránea, y el trabajo conceptualiza todos aquellos aspectos que lo conforman desde que se comenzó a producir hace varios milenios y, cuyos significados, han ido perdiendo impacto en el conocimiento del consumidor actual. El reposicionamiento de un producto característico de nuestra forma de vida a partir de los valores intrínsecos de nuestra cotidianeidad añade una característica más a este trabajo y a los valores que caracterizan a nuestra cultura y nuestra sociedad.Purpose: New strategies and its uses to commercial reposition of the olive oil through the intangibles assets.Design/methodology/approach: The theoretical framework application of the olive oil intangibility and to concept the intangible assets and statistical research quantitative development to valorize the concepts.Findings: It proposes a conceptualization of the intangibles assets to create the olive oil concept, beyond to alimentary set. Conceptualization of the development of the intangibility of the olive oil responds to a repositioning strategy of the product in front of the competition in a globalization markets place.Research limitations/implications: The research begins from the use limitation in a statistical method demanding reliability margin, but really diffuse, given that the improvement of olive oil consumption is only 5% in the vegetables oils markets.Practical implications: The research proposes the intangibilities and characteristics of the olive oil. This isn´t new, it simply is a conceptualization of diary aspects but without importance, above all with the differentiation elements to competition actually. The commercial positioning of the product needs new strategies of differentiation and the olive oil can use the intangibles to confirm it means to justify the price expensive than other vegetable oils.Social implications: The oleo sector is in a fragile important situation to commercial depression, and that take the olive farmers from the rural areas. This information impact directly to the people to lose rent levels that they are suffering in last years.Originality/value: The olive oil is a characteristic product of the Mediterranean culture, and the research helps to conceptualize all the aspects that confirm the history and story of the olive oil from thousands years ago, and their means have been lost in this time. The repositioning of the product is characteristic of our way of live.Purpose: New strategies and its uses to commercial reposition of the olive oil through the intangibles assets.Design/methodology/approach: The theoretical framework application of the olive oil intangibility and to concept the intangible assets and statistical research quantitative development to valorize the concepts.Findings: It proposes a conceptualization of the intangibles assets to create the olive oil concept, beyond to alimentary set.

    2015-09-01

    Full Text Available La tuberculosis (TB continúa concentrada de manera desproporcionada entre los pobres, pero los determinantes conocidos de reactivación de la TB pueden no explicar las desigualdades observadas en las tasas de enfermedad según la riqueza. En el presente estudio, mediante la revisión de datos sobre desigualdades en TB en la India y la distribución de factores de riesgo de TB conocidos según riqueza, se describe cómo los patrones de mezcla social pueden estar contribuyendo a las desigualdades en TB. La mezcla social por afinidad selectiva según la riqueza, por la cual es más probable que las personas entren en contacto con otras personas de orígenes socioeconómicos similares, amplifica las pequeñas diferencias en el riesgo de TB y genera grandes desigualdades a nivel poblacional. A medida que las desigualdades y la asortatividad (o afinidad selectiva aumentan, se hace más difícil controlar la TB; este efecto queda enmascarado cuando se examinan solamente promedios poblacionales de parámetros epidemiológicos, tales como las tasas de detección de casos. El estudio ilustra cómo los esfuerzos de control de TB pueden beneficiarse a partir de una orientación preferencial hacia los pobres. En la India, una intervención a escala equivalente podría tener un impacto sustancialmente mayor si se orientara a quienes viven por debajo de la línea de pobreza que el de una estrategia a toda la población. Además de las eficiencias potenciales de focalizar en poblaciones en más alto riesgo, los esfuerzos de control de la TB podrían llevar a una mayor reducción en el número de casos secundarios de TB por cada caso primario diagnosticado si es que tales esfuerzos fuesen preferencialmente orientados hacia los pobres. El estudio destaca la necesidad de recolectar datos programáticos sobre las desigualdades en TB e incorporar de manera explícita consideraciones de equidad en los planes de control de la TB.

Our aim is not to provide another definition of what SoS are, but rather to focus on the adequacy of reusing standard system architecting techniques within this approach in order to improve performance, fault detection and safety issues in large-scale coupled systems that definitely qualify as SoS, whatever the definition is. A key issue will be to secure the availability of the services pr...

    2008-08-01

    Evaluation is one of many fields where "systems thinking" is popular and is said to hold great promise. However, there is disagreement about what constitutes systems thinking. Its meaning is ambiguous, and systems scholars have made diverse and divergent attempts to describe it. Alternative origins include: von Bertalanffy, Aristotle, Lao Tsu or multiple aperiodic "waves." Some scholars describe it as synonymous with systems sciences (i.e., nonlinear dynamics, complexity, chaos). Others view it as taxonomy-a laundry list of systems approaches. Within so much noise, it is often difficult for evaluators to find the systems thinking signal. Recent work in systems thinking describes it as an emergent property of four simple conceptual patterns (rules). For an evaluator to become a "systems thinker", he or she need not spend years learning many methods or nonlinear sciences. Instead, with some practice, one can learn to apply these four simple rules to existing evaluation knowledge with transformative results.

    Siemieniuch, C E; Sinclair, M A

    2006-01-01

    The paper presents a view of systems integration, from an ergonomics/human factors perspective, emphasising the process of systems integration as is carried out by humans. The first section discusses some of the fundamental issues in systems integration, such as the significance of systems boundaries, systems lifecycle and systems entropy, issues arising from complexity, the implications of systems immortality, and so on. The next section outlines various generic processes for executing systems integration, to act as guides for practitioners. These address both the design of the system to be integrated and the preparation of the wider system in which the integration will occur. Then the next section outlines some of the human-specific issues that would need to be addressed in such processes; for example, indeterminacy and incompleteness, the prediction of human reliability, workload issues, extended situation awareness, and knowledge lifecycle management. For all of these, suggestions and further readings are proposed. Finally, the conclusions section reiterates in condensed form the major issues arising from the above.

    Technology has now progressed to the point that intelligent systems are replacing humans in the decision making processes as well as aiding in the solution of very complex problems. In many cases intelligent systems are already outperforming human activities. Artificial neural networks are not only capable of learning how to classify patterns, such images or sequence of events, but they can also effectively model complex nonlinear systems. Their ability to classify sequences of events is probably more popular in industrial applications where there is an inherent need to model nonlinear system

  16. Systemic darwinism.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Winther, Rasmus Grønfeldt

    2008-08-19

    Darwin's 19th century evolutionary theory of descent with modification through natural selection opened up a multidimensional and integrative conceptual space for biology. We explore three dimensions of this space: explanatory pattern, levels of selection, and degree of difference among units of the same type. Each dimension is defined by a respective pair of poles: law and narrative explanation, organismic and hierarchical selection, and variational and essentialist thinking. As a consequence of conceptual debates in the 20th century biological sciences, the poles of each pair came to be seen as mutually exclusive opposites. A significant amount of 21st century research focuses on systems (e.g., genomic, cellular, organismic, and ecological/global). Systemic Darwinism is emerging in this context. It follows a "compositional paradigm" according to which complex systems and their hierarchical networks of parts are the focus of biological investigation. Through the investigation of systems, Systemic Darwinism promises to reintegrate each dimension of Darwin's original logical space. Moreover, this ideally and potentially unified theory of biological ontology coordinates and integrates a plurality of mathematical biological theories (e.g., self-organization/structure, cladistics/history, and evolutionary genetics/function). Integrative Systemic Darwinism requires communal articulation from a plurality of perspectives. Although it is more general than these, it draws on previous advances in Systems Theory, Systems Biology, and Hierarchy Theory. Systemic Darwinism would greatly further bioengineering research and would provide a significantly deeper and more critical understanding of biological reality.

    As a part of the research and development regarding characterisation of deep geological environment, the GEOMASS (GEOLOGICAL MODELLING ANALYSIS AND SIMULATION SOFTWARE) system has been developed by the Japan Atomic Energy Agency in order to carry out geological and hydrogeological modelling and groundwater flow simulation and so on. The GEOMASS system integrates a commercial geological interpretation system (EarthVision), which is used for geological modelling and visualisation, with a proprietary code for groundwater flow (FracAffinity). This integrated system allows users to make rapid improvement of models as data increases. Also, it is possible to perform more realistic groundwater flow simulation due to the capability of modelling the rock mass as a continuum with discrete hydro-structural features in the rock mass. This paper consists of 'Overview of GEOMASS system', FracAffinity Theoretical Background' and 'FracAffinity User Guide' and is edited as a GEOMASS system manual. 'Overview of GEOMASS system' describes the outline of this system. 'FracAffinity Theoretical Background' describes the information of technical background of FracAffinity software. FracAffinity User Guide' describes the structure of the FracAffinity input files, the usage of FracAffinity Interface and flow-solver. Updating of the FracAffinity has been continued as needed and FracAffinity version3.3 is the latest version at present (July 2008). (author)

    The CASDAC (Containment And Surveillance Data Authenticated Communication) system has been developed by JAERI for nuclear safeguards and physical protection of nuclear material. This system was designed and constructed as an upgraded RECOVER system, design concept of which was based on the original RECOVER system and also the TRANSEAVER system. Both of them were developed several years ago as a remote monitoring system for continual verification of security and safeguards status of nuclear material. The system consists of two subsystems, one of them is a Grand Command Center (GCC) subsystem and the other is a facility subsystem. Communication between the two subsystems is controlled through the international telephone line network. Therefore all communication data are encrypted to prevent access by an unauthorized person who may intend to make a falsification, or tapping. The facility subsystem has an appropriate measure that ensure data security and reliable operation under unattended mode of operator. The software of this system is designed so as to be easily used in other different types of computers. This report describes the outline of the CASDAC system and the results of its performance test.

    Avdeev, Alexander A

    2016-01-01

    This monograph presents a systematic analysis of bubble system mathematics, using the mechanics of two-phase systems in non-equilibrium as the scope of analysis. The author introduces the thermodynamic foundations of bubble systems, ranging from the fundamental starting points to current research challenges. This book addresses a range of topics, including description methods of multi-phase systems, boundary and initial conditions as well as coupling requirements at the phase boundary. Moreover, it presents a detailed study of the basic problems of bubble dynamics in a liquid mass: growth (dynamically and thermally controlled), collapse, bubble pulsations, bubble rise and breakup. Special emphasis is placed on bubble dynamics in turbulent flows. The analysis results are used to write integral equations governing the rate of vapor generation (condensation) in non-equilibrium flows, thus creating a basis for solving a number of practical problems. This book is the first to present a comprehensive theory of boil...

    Full Text Available Two strategies towards the realization of nanotechnology have been presented, i.e., top-down and bottom up. The former one is mainly based on nanofabrication and includes technologies such as nano-lithography, nano-imprint, and etching. Presently, they are still 2D fabrication processes with low resolution. The later one is an assembly-based technique. At present, it includes such items as self-assembly, dip-pen lithography, and directed self-assembly. These techniques can generate regular nano patterns in large scales. To fabricate 3D complex nano devices there are still no effective ways by so far. Here we show our effort on the development of a nano laboratory, a prototype nanomanufacturing system, based on nanorobotic manipulations. In which, we take a hybrid strategy as shown in Fig. 1. In this system, nano fabrication and nano assembly can be performed in an arbitrary order to construct nano building blocks and finally nano devices. The most important feature in this system is that the products can be fed back into the system to shrink the system part by part leading to nanorobots. Property characterization can be performed in each intermediate process. Due to the nanorobotic manipulation system, dynamic measurement can be performed rather than conventional static observations.

    Full Text Available Solvent extraction as a method of extracting protein from oilseed meals offers the advantage of higher efficiency. Unfortunately, the published literature points to the gap in the work concerned with the necessary equilibrium diagram to design due process equipment for such extracts. Initiated by this lack of basic knowledge, the present study has been undertaken to provide the equilibrium data for three different ternary systems, namely: sesame protein / sodium hydroxide solution system, soybean protein / sodium hydroxide solution system and lupine protein / sodium hydroxide solution system. These oilseed meals were selected because of their high protein content (53.4 %, 46.2 % and 42.3 % protein, respectively. The study also concentrated on the evaluation of the major parameters affecting the extraction process, i.e. the normality of the sodium hydroxide solution used as extracting solvent and the initial oilseed solvent to meal feeding ratio. The results obtained indicate that the best normality of sodium hydroxide solution used for extracting soybean and lupine protein is 0.02N, while 0.04N solution is required for extracting sesame protein. Also, operating at a liquid to solid feed ratio of 30:1 and 50:1 for soybean, sesame and lupine, respectively, is enough to reach a high protein extract. Correlations were presented for each locus of under flow compositions, graphically acquired, and the data are compared with those calculated by analytical solutions.La extracción con disolventes es un método de extracción de proteínas de las harinas de semillas oleaginosas que ofrece la ventaja de su elevada eficacia. Desafortunadamente, la bibliografía coincide en el vacío existente con respecto a los diagramas de equilibrio necesarios para el diseño de los equipos adecuados.

    Production sharing contracts are one of the most popular forms of contractual system used in petroleum agreements around the world, but the manner in which the fiscal terms and contract parameters impact system measures is complicated and not well understood. The purpose of this paper is to quantify the influence of private and market uncertainty in contractual fiscal systems. A meta-modelling approach is employed that couples the results of a simulation model with regression analysis to construct numerical functionals that quantify the fiscal regime. Relationships are derived that specify how the present value, rate of return, and take statistics vary as a function of the system parameters. The deepwater Girassol field development in Angola is taken as a case study. (author)

    The represent invention concerns a reactor system with improved water injection means to a pressure vessel of a BWR type reactor. A steam pump is connected to a heat removing system pipeline, a high pressure water injection system pipeline and a low pressure water injection system pipeline for injecting water into the pressure vessel. A pump actuation pipeline is disposed being branched from a main steam pump or a steam relieaf pipeline system, through which steams are supplied to actuate the steam pump and supply cooling water into the pressure vessel thereby cooling the reactor core. The steam pump converts the heat energy into the kinetic energy and elevates the pressure of water to a level higher than the pressure of the steams supplied by way of a pressure-elevating diffuser. Cooling water can be supplied to the pressure vessel by the pressure elevation. This can surely inject cooling water into the pressure vessel upon loss of coolant accident or in a case if reactor scram is necessary, without using an additional power source. (I.N.)

    In spite of the remarkable safety record of the nuclear industry as a whole, recent public concern over the potential impact of the industry's accelerated growth has prompted ERDA to expand its emergency response procedures. The Atmospheric Release Advisory Capability, ARAC, is a computer communications system designed to enhance the existing emergency response capability of ERDA nuclear facilities. ARAC will add at least two new functions to this capability: centralized, real-time data acquisition and storage, and simulation of the long range atmospheric transport of hazardous materials. To perform these functions, ARAC employs four major sub-systems or facilities: the site facility, the central facility, the global weather center and the regional model. The system has been under development for the past two years at the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory of the University of California

Spin-systems are well-defined models, for which, in special cases, exact properties may be derived. These special cases are for the greater part, one- dimensional and restricted in their applicability, but they may give insight into general properties that also exist in higher dimension. This work pays special attention to qualitative differences between spin lattices of different dimensions. It also replaces the traditional picture of an (ordered) antiferromagnetic state of a Heisenberg sy

    Morecroft, John

    System dynamics is an approach for thinking about and simulating situations and organisations of all kinds and sizes by visualising how the elements fit together, interact and change over time. This chapter, written by John Morecroft, describes modern system dynamics which retains the fundamentals developed in the 1950s by Jay W. Forrester of the MIT Sloan School of Management. It looks at feedback loops and time delays that affect system behaviour in a non-linear way, and illustrates how dynamic behaviour depends upon feedback loop structures. It also recognises improvements as part of the ongoing process of managing a situation in order to achieve goals. Significantly it recognises the importance of context, and practitioner skills. Feedback systems thinking views problems and solutions as being intertwined. The main concepts and tools: feedback structure and behaviour, causal loop diagrams, dynamics, are practically illustrated in a wide variety of contexts from a hot water shower through to a symphony orchestra and the practical application of the approach is described through several real examples of its use for strategic planning and evaluation.

    1997-01-01

    The objective of this paper is to demonstrate that a bioenergy system has to be considered as an integrated process in which each stage or step interacts with other steps in the overall process. There are a number of stages in the supply and conversion of woody biomass for energy. Each step in the chain has implications for the next step and for overall system efficiency. The resource can take many forms and will have varying physical and chemical characteristics which will influence the efficiency and cost of conversion. The point in the supply chain at which size and moisture content is reduced and the manner in which it is done is influential in determining feedstock delivered cost and overall system costs. To illustrate the interactions within the overall system, the influence of the nature, size and moisture content of delivered feedstocks on costs of generating electricity via thermal conversion processes is examined using a model developed to investigate the inter-relationships between the stages in the supply chain.

    2011-01-01

    Mirror neurons are a class of visuomotor neurons, discovered in the monkey premotor cortex and in an anatomically connected area of the inferior parietal lobule, that activate both during action execution and action observation. They constitute a circuit dedicated to match actions made by others with the internal motor representations of the observer. It has been proposed that this matching system enables individuals to understand others' behavior and motor intentions. Here we will describe the main features of mirror neurons in monkeys. Then we will present evidence of the presence of a mirror system in humans and of its involvement in several social-cognitive functions, such as imitation, intention, and emotion understanding. This system may have several implications at a cognitive level and could be linked to specific social deficits in humans such as autism. Recent investigations addressed the issue of the plasticity of the mirror neuron system in both monkeys and humans, suggesting also their possible use in rehabilitation.

    Up to the present the production, transmission and distribution of energy has been considered mostly as a fragmented problem; at best only subsystems have been considered. Today the scale of energy utilization is increasing rapidly, and correspondingly, the reliance of societies on energy. Such strong quantitative increases influence the qualitative nature of energy utilization in most of its aspects. Resources, reserves, reliability and environment are among the key words that may characterize the change in the nature of the energy utilization problem. Energy can no longer be considered an isolated technical and economical problem, rather it is embedded in the ecosphere and the society-technology complex. Restraints and boundary conditions have to be taken into account with the same degree of attention as in traditional technical problems, for example a steam turbine. This results in a strong degree of interweaving. Further, the purpose of providing energy becomes more visible, that is, to make survival possible in a civilized and highly populated world on a finite globe. Because of such interweaving and finiteness it is felt that energy should be considered as a system and therefore the term 'energy systems' is used. The production of energy is only one component of such a system; the handling of energy and the embedding of energy into the global and social complex in terms of ecology, economy, risks and resources are of similar importance. he systems approach to the energy problem needs more explanation. This paper is meant to give an outline of the underlying problems and it is hoped that by so doing the wide range of sometimes confusing voices about energy can be better understood. Such confusion starts already with the term 'energy crisis'. Is there an energy crisis or not? Much future work is required to tackle the problems of energy systems.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    1992-01-01

    The Nuclear Waste Policy Act (NWPA) of 1982 assigned to the Department of Energy (DOE) the responsibility for managing the disposal of spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste and established the Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management (OCRWM) for that purpose. The Secretary of Energy, in his November 1989 report to Congress (DOE/RW-0247), announced three new initiatives for conduct of the Civilian Radioactive Waste Management (CRWM) program. One of these initiatives was to establish improved management structure and procedures. In response, OCRWM performed a management study and the Direct subsequently issued the Management Systems Improvement Strategy (MSIS) on August 10, 1990, calling for a rigorous implementation of systems engineering principles with a special emphasis on functional analysis. This approach establishes a framework for integrating the program management efforts with the technical requirements analysis into a single, unified, and consistent program. The functional analysis approach recognizes that just the facilities and equipment comprising the physical waste management system must perform certain functions, so must certain programmatic and management functions be performed within the program in order to successfully bring the physical system into being

    A moving object such as a container on a conveyor belt is imaged by an optical system onto a charge coupled device array in which the lines of the array are arranged perpendicular to the direction of motion of the object. The speed of movement of the object is sensed to generate electrical signals which are processed to provide shift signals enabling the shifting of data row to row in the array in synchronism with the movement of the container. The electrical charge associated with a given point on the array is transferred from one line to the other until it appears at the last line of the array, from which it is read out in known manner in conjunction with all other electrical charges associated with the row of charge coupled devices in the last line of the array. Due to the integrating effect achieved, the aperture of the imaging system can be much smaller than otherwise would be required, and/or the level of light illumination can be reduced. The imaging system can be applied to X-ray inspection devices, aerial surveillance or scanning of moving documents in copying processes. (author)

    A balanced braking system comprising a plurality of braking assemblies located about a member to be braked. Each of the braking assemblies consists of a spring biased piston of a first material fitted into a body of a different material which has a greater contraction upon cooling than the piston material. The piston is provided with a recessed head portion over which is positioned a diaphragm and forming a space therebetween to which is connected a pressurized fluid supply. The diaphragm is controlled by the fluid in the space to contact or withdraw from the member to be braked. A cooling means causes the body within which the piston is fitted to contract more than the piston, producing a tight shrink fit therebetween. The braking system is particularly applicable for selectively braking an arbor of an electron microscope which immobilizes, for example, a vertically adjustable low temperature specimen holder during observation. The system provides balanced braking forces which can be easily removed and re-established with minimal disturbance to arbor location.

Es evidente que la formación e-learning aporta a los alumnos y a los docentes grandes ventajas como: menores tiempos de aprendizaje, flexibilidad de horarios y de ubicación geográfica, entre otras. We describe two technological modes of on-line teaching: the consolidated and widely used video-streaming mode and teleimmersion, the future of distance communications. The former mode allows the transmission of audio/video through the network so that it can be seen by the user on a PC from anywhere harbouring a network connection. The information is received and decoded by the final user using any reproducer available on the market. Teleimmersion allows the creation of virtual spaces for collaboration among professionals, offering venues that are very similar to reality. This technology will undoubtedly revolutionize our teaching systems in the near future, facilitating instructor-student interaction. It is clear that e-learning- instruction offers both students and instructors huge advantages, such as shorter learning times and schedule and geographic flexibility, among others.

The port is normally closed by a door which cooperates with a removable end closure, on a container or the like when the latter is presented to and secured at the port. The container is secured in position at the port by means of a rotatable coupling ring. A single interlock ensures that the door cannot be opened in the absence of a container at the port and also that the container cannot be removed from the port when the door is open. In place of the container, a glove secured to a rigid sleeve may be used to enable the operator to perform a work function within the glovebox. (author)

    Full Text Available In this paper, we revise the classical formulation of the problem depriving it of the concepts that are superfluous from the mathematical point of view. We observe that a number of power stations can be substituted by a single one that behaves equivalently to the entire set. Proceeding in this way, we obtain a variational formulation in its purest sense (without restrictions. This formulation allows us to employ the theory of calculus of variations to the highest degree. We then calculate the equivalent minimizer in the case where the cost functions are second-order polynomials. We prove that the equivalent minimizer is a second-order polynomial with piece-wise constant coefficients. Moreover, it belongs to the class C1. Finally, we present various examples prompted by real systems and perform the proposed algorithms using Mathematica.

It provides a unified view of nonlinear properties in many different systems and highlights many  new developments. While volume 1 concentrates on mathematical theory and computational techniques and challenges, which are essential for the study of nonlinear science, this second volume deals with nonlinear excitations in several fields. These excitations can be localized and transport energy and matter in the form of breathers, solitons, kinks or quodons with very different characteristics, which are discussed in the book. They can also transport electric charge, in which case they are known as polarobreathers or solectrons. Nonlinear excitations can influence function and structure in biology, as for example, protein folding. In crystals and other condensed matter, they can modify transport properties, reaction kinetics and interact with defects. There are also engineering applications in electric lattices, Josephson junction a...

    Full Text Available In this work a study on the application of bio-inspired strategies for optimization to Fault Diagnosis in industrial systems is presented. The principal aim is to establish a basis for the development of new and viable model-based Fault Diagnosis Methods which improve some difficulties that the current methods cannot avoid. These difficulties are related mainly with fault sensitivity and robustness to external disturbances. In this study, there have been considered the Differential Evolution and the Ant Colony Optimization algorithms. This application is illustrated using simulated data of the Two tanks system benchmark. In order to analyze the advantages of these algorithms to obtain a diagnosis which needs to be sensitive to faults and robust to external disturbances, some experiments with incipient faults and noisy data have been simulated. The results indicate that the proposed approach, basically the combination of the two algorithms, characterizes a promising methodology for Fault Diagnosis.En el presente trabajo se presenta un estudio sobre la aplicación de estrategias bioinspiradas para la optimización al diagnóstico de fallos en sistemas industriales. El objetivo principal es establecer una base para el desarrollo de nuevos y viables métodos de diagnóstico de fallos basados en modelos que permitan mejorar las dificultades de los métodos actuales. Estas dificultades están relacionadas, fundamentalmente, con la sensibilidad ante la presencia de fallos y la robustez ante perturbaciones externas. En el estudio se consideraron los algoritmos Evolución Diferencial y Optimización por Colonia de Hormigas. La efectividad de la propuesta es analizada mediante experimentos con el conocido problema de prueba de los dos tanques. Los experimentos consideraron presencia de ruido en la información y fallos incipientes de manera que fuera posible analizar las ventajas de la propuesta en cuanto a diagnóstico robusto y sensible.

    Dielectric spectroscopy is a measurement technique to characterize the interaction between electromagnetic energy and macroscopic samples as a function of frequency. It is based on the measurement of complex permittivity plus conductivity and it has shown to be very useful to provide information about internal structure of matter. It has some advantages over others like optical or chemical analysis: it is very fast, easy to implement, requires little or no preparation of the sample, it can be non-destructive and/or minimally intrusive. In this paper the development of a dielectric spectroscopy system for the microwave frequency range (50 MHz-20 GHz), using an open-ended coaxial probe as sensor, is described. The complete system includes a vector network analyzer, a microwave coaxial cable, the probe, a sample holder and a computer to automate measurements and further data processing. This system has been used to measure some liquid and solid materials such as alcohol, water and Teflon. The real and imaginary parts of permittivity as function of frequency, for several sugarcane alcohol and deionised water mixtures, tequilas and Teflon samples are given. Measurement repeatability and accuracy considerations were taken and it was identified that uncertainty of reference standards and system repeatability are the most important error sources. Also, it was found that open-ended coaxial probe technique is appropriate for measuring not only liquids but also solid materials. Some of the obtained results were compared to those reported in literature and good convergence was observed.

    The physical design of electric substations involves a variety of activities, such as developing, reviewing and performing modifications to different design proposals, estimating costs and producing documents to be integrated into an executive project. These activities are usually conducted at the Distribution Divisions of the Federal Electric Commission (CFE) through two separate processes: the development of engineering plans with computer-aided design software (CAD) and volumetric calculations for the initial budget using conventional spreadsheets. The documents are manually developed on an individual basis, without the existence of any functions to allow for automatically updating the design modifications of any of the plans. The corresponding initial budget becomes a lengthy and laborious process with the likelihood of inconsistencies among the documents. In order to optimize the design process for the public and electromechanical works of electric substations (ES) in a three-dimensional (3D) graphic environment, the IIE's Management of Process Supervision, in coordination with the CFE Distribution Subdivision, developed the System for the Design of Electric Substation Distribution (SDESD). This system makes use of the advantages of CAD3D technology to develop detail engineering, cost engineering to calculate initial budgets and virtual reality for three-dimensional interactive navigation. It is worth mentioning that this system is currently in the implementation phase at the CFE Distribution Subdivision. This article briefly describes the main stages in the development of the project, as well as the functioning and principal components of the system.

  13. Release of alkali salts and coal volatiles affecting internal components in fluidized bed combustion systems

    2003-12-01

    Full Text Available In spite of the potential advantages of atmospheric fluidized bed systems, experience has proved that, under certain environments and operating conditions, a given material employed for internal components could lead to catastrophic events. In this study, an attempt is made to establish material selection and operational criteria that optimize performance and availability based on theoretical considerations of the bed hydrodynamics, thermodynamics and combustion process. The theoretical results may indicate that, for high-volatile coals with particle diameters (dc of 1-3 mm and sand particle size (ds of 0.674 mm, a considerable proportion of alkali chlorides may be transferred into the freeboard region of fluidized bed combustors as vapor phase, at bed temperatures (Tb < 840 °C, excess air (XSA ≤ 20 %, static bed height (Hs ≤ 0.2 m and fluidizing velocity (Uo < 1 m/s. Under these operating conditions, a high alkali deposition may be expected to occur in heat exchange tubes located above the bed. Conversely, when the combustors operate at Tb > 890 °C and XSA > 30 %, a high oxidation rate of the in-bed tubes may be present. Nevertheless, for these higher Tb values and XSA < 10 %, corrosion attack of metallic components, via sulfidation, would occur since the excessive gas-phase combustion within the bed induced a local oxygen depletion.

    A pesar de las ventajas potenciales de los sistemas atmosféricos de lecho fluidizado, la experiencia ha demostrado que, bajo ciertas atmósferas y condiciones de operación, un material que se emplea como componente interno podría experimentar una falla y conducir a eventos catastróficos.

    The NJOY Nuclear Data Processing System is used to convert evaluated nuclear data in ENDF format into forms useful for applications. The NJOY code is a modular computer code designed to read evaluated data in ENDF format, transform the data in various ways, and output the results as libraries designed to be used in various applications. The modules are essentially independent programs, and they communicate with each other using input and output files, plus a very few common variables. The NJOY code can work with neutrons, photons, and charged particles. The evaluated nuclear data are reconstructed to pointwise cross sections from ENDF resonance parameters and interpolation schemes. The pointwise data can be Doppler broadened to the temperatures requested by users. The data in unresolved energy range can be computed to effective self-shielded pointwise cross sections. The cross sections and scattering matrices for free or bound scatterers in the thermal energy range are able to be produced. The self-shielded multigroup cross sections, group-to-group scattering matrices, photon-production matrices, and charged-particle cross sections from pointwise data can be generated for various application codes

    This paper reports that world styrene demand, paced by a near doubling of combined requirements in East Asia and Oceania, could reach 19.3 million metric tons by 2000, an average growth rate of 3.7%/year. So concludes Chem Systems Inc., Tarrytown, N.Y., in a study of world styrene markets through the end of the century. Pacific Rim styrene production and consumption throughout the 1990s are predicted to make up increasingly larger shares of world markets, while demand and production lag in the U.S. and western Europe. Demand and capacity in other parts of the world will grow in real terms, increasing combined market shares only slightly. Most of the increase will be driven by demand in East Asia and Oceania, where consumption by century's end is expected to increase 4.48 million metric tons from 2.25 million tons in 1991. Meantime, Japan's styrene demand in 2000 is projected at 2.64 million tons, a 500,000 ton increase from 1991 demand but a net market loss of 1.9%

    With the purpose of avoiding the installation of new transmission lines, some researches have proposed the installation of SIFLETCA devices. Therefore in this thesis, different models in steady state of diverse SIFLETCA devices are described, such as: compensator variable series (VSC), static compensator of VArs (SCV), transformer phase shifter (TPS), transformer with changer under load (TWCL) and the universal controller of power flows (UCPF). In addition, it is developed in this thesis the equations used in the Jacobean of the method Newton-Raphson, to solve power flows including SIFLETCA devices. The different applications that are obtained when installing a device, such as prevention of flows in ring, electronic barrier, increment in the transmission capacity and specification of the power flow in transmission lines. On the other hand in the thesis, an analysis of sensitivities of a power system in steady state is developed. Also the control parameters are proposed in the thesis for which the sensitivities are calculated. Also, a performance index is used to measure the degree of congestion of an electrical system. In calculating the sensitivities the obtained results of the power flows are utilized. Four electrical networks are used to find where each SIFLETCA device must be located to reduce the congestion in the system. Also, the method developed in the thesis is compared with a method of sensitivities that uses DC flows, for validation and to show the advantages of using the Newton method in power flows.

    A procedure based on the phase compensation technique for tuning satisfactorily lead-lag power system stabilizers (PSS) is presented in this work. This procedure can be applied to standard models of PSS`s (with two phase compensation stages) where rotor speed deviation or an equivalent rotor speed signal is used as input. An analysis of several state of the art advanced control schemes is also presented, which are proposed for overcoming the limitations of conventional fixed parameters PSS`s. The advantages and drawbacks in designing certain types of PSS`s which are based on adaptive control, fuzzy logic and neural networks techniques are investigated. Based on this study, and taking into account the highly complex and non-linear nature of power systems, a fuzzy logic PSS is designed. In order to have good damping characteristics, speed deviation ({Delta}{omega}) of a machine and its acceleration ({Delta}{omega}) are chosen as the input signals to the fuzzy stabilizer of that particular machine. The performance of the lead-lag PSS and fuzzy stabilizer are validated through the simulation of two case studies: a single machine-infinite bus system, and a multimachine power system. All simulations were performed using a tool based on algorithms developed in MATLAB for the study of power system stability. [Espanol] Se presenta un procedimiento basado en la tecnica de compensacion de fase para ajustar en forma satisfactoria los parametros de los estabilizadores de sistemas de potencia (ESP) del tipo de adelanto-atraso. Este procedimiento es aplicable a modelos estandar de ESP`s (con dos redes de compensacion de fase) que utilizan como senal de entrada la velocidad del rotor del generador en cuestion, o una senal de velocidad equivalente. Por otra parte, se realiza un estudio de diversos esquemas de control avanzado del ESP que se proponen en la literatura actual para superar las limitantes de los estabilizadores convencionales. Basicamente, se analizan las ventajas y

    ésicas mais eficazes e seguras.JUSTIFICATIVA Y OBJETIVOS: El desenvolvimiento de sistemas de liberación controlada ha sido motivo de pesquisas desde cuatro décadas por lo menos. Desde que fue sugerida su aplicación en la industria farmacéutica, fueron obtenidos muchos resultados, especialmente en la manipulación molecular de carreadores y en el estudio de sus interacciones con las drogas encapsuladas. Esos nuevos carreadores tienen la ventaja de contornar propiedades físico-químicas limitantes (como la solubilidad acuosa o en membranas de las drogas encapsuladas, mejorando asi la farmacodinámica (potencialización del efecto terapéutico, farmacocinética (control de la absorción y distribución de tejidos y los efectos toxicológicos (reducción de la toxicidad local y sistémica de las mismas. Entre los principales carreadores, se destacan los liposomas y las ciclodextrinas, que están trayendo innúmeras ventajas en el desarrollo de formulaciones para liberación controlada de anestésicos locales. Este trabajo de revisión, objetiva describir la interacción de anestésicos locales con liposomas o ciclodextrinas, el desarrollo de las pesquisas básica y clínica en esa área, además de la aplicabilidad terapéutica de esas formulaciones. CONTENIDO: Liposomas tienen la capacidad de transportar drogas en órganos-clave, disponibilizando apenas una fracción - liberación controlada - para el sitio de acción. Ya las ciclodextrinas alteran la intensidad y la duración de efectos de las drogas a través de la baja absorción sistémica del complejo. Pesquisas básicas y clínicas, apuntan como ventajas del uso de anestésicos locales encapsulados en liposomas o complejos con ciclodextrinas la liberación lenta de la droga que prolonga la duración de la anestesia, y reduce la toxicidad para los sistemas cardiovascular y nervioso central. CONCLUSIONES: No obstante varias pesquisas están aún en andamiento, los sistemas de liberación controlada de anest

Sin embargo, se han propuesto conceptos como el de gestión ambiental proactiva (GAP. Según la teoría de la Visión Basada en Recursos Naturales (NRBV, la GAP es una compleja coordinación de recursos estratégicos, capacidades organizacionales y prácticas ambientales que conducen a un mejor desempeño ambiental y una mayor ventaja competitiva. Dichas capacidades se soportan en recursos empresariales estratégicos. Este proyecto de investigación busca construir un modelo de sistema de información (SI, como recurso estratégico, que facilite y apoye la gestión de información, inicialmente de una capacidad organizacional: “la gestión de stakeholders”, la cual permite a una firma desplegar prácticas ambientales más proactivas para alcanzar una ventaja competitiva sostenible. El modelo de SI fue desarrollado siguiendo algunas pautas de la metodología Arquitectura Dirigida por Modelos (MDA, además basándose en lo encontrado en la literatura, principalmente en la teoría NRBV y en el análisis de un diagnóstico realizado a 10 empresas de Bogotá, Colombia. Los resultados permiten concluir, entre otras cosas, que la gestión de información sobre la GAP en una firma se despliega de forma mucha más transversal que vertical a lo largo del SI y de las actividades primarias y secundarias de una compañía. Y además, los resultados proporcionan una guía para la adecuada gestión de información sobre la gestión de stakeholders encaminada hacia una GAP en PYMES de manufactura.

    Decisive parts of the Western political system have demonstrated a seemingly surprising misinterpretation of military might. As Madelaine Albright has suggested, the mighty perceived themselves as "almighty". Political power seems to have invested in instrumental coercive power relations and found...... military coercion to be the appropriate mean. Using the system theory and the theory of systemic risks displayed by the German sociologist Niklas Luhmann the article demonstrates how military systems due to their own autonomy and autopoiesis do not fit into the idea of political government....... The Clausewitzian ideal of a political system that could continue its power games by means of war was moderated by Clausewitz' own analysis of "friction". How can a political system be so blind towards the possibilities of another system? What are the risks of systemic blind spots? The argument of the paper...

    Full Text Available In this article we discuss whether telework constitutes a useful work-life balance strategy for women teleworkers with dependants. From our analysis we show that the discourse of the women interviewed about telework is not homogeneous, compact or linear, but includes plenty of contradictions, paradoxes and tensions. This fact reinforces telework’s enormous polysemy: it liberates and enslaves, it is a trap and an opportunity, it fulfills and can mean self-sacrifice. But, despite this rich complexity, our women informants agree on one particular matter: telework’s risks and possibly pernicious effects cannot hide either its advantages for work-life balance or the benefits it brings, at least in some cases, to one's personal life.

    En este artículo discutimos si el teletrabajo constituye una estrategia de conciliación de la vida laboral, familiar y personal para las mujeres teletrabajadoras con cargas familiares. A través de nuestro análisis mostramos que el discurso de las mujeres entrevistadas sobre el teletrabajo no es homogéneo, compacto o lineal, sino que aparece plagado de contradicciones, paradojas y tensiones. Este hecho refuerza su enorme polisemia: libera y esclaviza, es una trampa y una oportunidad, realiza personalmente y puede significar una renuncia. Pero, a pesar de esta rica complejidad, nuestras entrevistadas están de acuerdo en una cuestión muy concreta: los riesgos y los posibles efectos perniciosos del teletrabajo no pueden ensombrecer ni su potencial laboral ni los beneficios que comporta de cara a conciliar su vida laboral, familiar, y sólo en algunos casos, personal.

En este sentido, nuestro trabajo trata de analizar dos de las variables más estudiadas sobre las que la diversificación puede tener influencia como son la rentabilidad empresarial y el riesgo. Concretamente, estudiaremos si se cumplen las ideas defendidas desde la Visión de la Empresa Basada en los Recursos en cuanto a la superioridad de la diversificación de tipo relacionada para aumentar la rentabilidad y reducir el nivel de riesgo. Para ello, nos centraremos en las empresas del sector turístico español dada su gran importancia económica, el creciente interés que suscita y el fuerte proceso de crecimiento y de diversificación seguido en los últimos años. Nuestros resultados son similares a los obtenidos en otros trabajos previos y permiten confirmar el cumplimiento de algunas de las relaciones entre el tipo de diversificación, la rentabilidad y el riesgo empresarial, establecidas desde la teoría mencionada.

Puesto que las relaciones diplomáticas entre España y China gozan de buena sintonía, si España aprovecha la posición de privilegio respecto al resto de economías europeas, el gigante asiático podría estar interesado en el apoyo de España en América Latina, propiciando así la implantación de iniciativas de cooperación entre los tres polos. Los puntos clave para construir una relación win-win en clave triangular es la importancia de un socio local para profundizar en su despliegue internacional en América Latina, que las empresas chinas requieren, además del expertise y know-how necesarios en los procesos operativos, siendo en estos ámbitos las empresas españolas las mejor posicionadas.

    This article reports the results of a process of optimising the dosage of Sodium hypochlorite and Metabisulphite, performed on sea water in the pre-treatment division of the Las Palmas III reverse osmosis desalination plant, currently operated by Empresa Mixta de Aguas de las Palmas (EMALSA), responsible for providing drinking water to more than 400.000 people in the city of Las Palmas, capital of Grand Canary Island. The results of this optimisation process, contrary to the opinion of the operators of the plant, after reducing the amount of Metabisulphite normally used in the plant by 70%, and Sodium hypochlorite by 30%, there were no adverse effects on the microbiological quality of the sea water. Moreover, the performance of the membranes was improved (bad odors disappeared, along with organic material sediments, etc.). (Author) 9 refs.

En este trabajo se presentan algunas herramientas metodológicas para el análisis de la movilidad social en matrices de transición. Se discutirán los alcances y limitaciones de algunas metodologías clásicas de análisis: análisis de «entradas» y «salidas; el índice de movilidad/ estabilidad social; el índice basado en el coeficiente Q de Joule desarrollado por Andrea Tyree y los modelos log-lineales. Estas herramientas funcionan bajo el supuesto de «independencia estadística» entre los momentos de la matriz de transición. Se intentará mostrar la utilidad que las cadenas de Markov poseen, en tanto permiten «flexibilizar» (al menos en teoría estos supuestos, al trabajar sobre distribuciones probabilísticas de movilidad (llamadas matrices de transición. Por ello se propondrán algunos elementos para la construcción de un índice basado en estas distribuciones probabilísticas y se compararán sus resultados con las metodologías anteriores.

    Systems Biology is about combining theory, technology, and targeted experiments in a way that drives not only data accumulation but knowledge as well. The challenge in Systems Biomedicine is to furthermore translate mechanistic insights in biological systems to clinical application, with the central aim of improving patients' quality of life. The challenge is to find theoretically well-chosen models for the contextually correct and intelligible representation of multi-scale biological systems. In this review, we discuss the current state of Systems Biology, highlight the emergence of Systems Biomedicine, and highlight some of the topics and views that we think are important for the efficient application of Systems Theory in Biomedicine.

    The implementation of an integrated system health management (ISHM) capability is fundamentally linked to the management of data, information, and knowledge (DIaK) with the purposeful objective of determining the health of a system. It is akin to having a team of experts who are all individually and collectively observing and analyzing a complex system, and communicating effectively with each other in order to arrive at an accurate and reliable assessment of its health. In this paper, concepts, procedures, and approaches are presented as a foundation for implementing an intelligent systems ]relevant ISHM capability. The capability stresses integration of DIaK from all elements of a system. Both ground-based (remote) and on-board ISHM capabilities are compared and contrasted. The information presented is the result of many years of research, development, and maturation of technologies, and of prototype implementations in operational systems.

This paper discusses a microcomputer-based database system which can greatly enhance the capability of operators or regulators to incorporate PRA methodologies into their routine decision making. This system is called the System Analysis and Risk Assessment (SARA) system. SARA was developed by EG and G Idaho, Inc. at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory to facilitate the study of frequency and consequence analyses of accident sequences from a large number of light water reactors (LWRs) in this country. This information is being amassed by several studies sponsored by the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (USNRC). To meet the need of portability and accessibility, and to perform the variety of calculations necessary, it was felt that a microcomputer-based system would be most suitable

  20. Systems engineering for very large systems

    Science.gov (United States)

    Lewkowicz, Paul E.

    Very large integrated systems have always posed special problems for engineers. Whether they are power generation systems, computer networks or space vehicles, whenever there are multiple interfaces, complex technologies or just demanding customers, the challenges are unique. 'Systems engineering' has evolved as a discipline in order to meet these challenges by providing a structured, top-down design and development methodology for the engineer. This paper attempts to define the general class of problems requiring the complete systems engineering treatment and to show how systems engineering can be utilized to improve customer satisfaction and profit ability. Specifically, this work will focus on a design methodology for the largest of systems, not necessarily in terms of physical size, but in terms of complexity and interconnectivity.

  1. Epilogue: Systems Approaches and Systems Practice

    Reynolds, Martin; Holwell, Sue

    Each of the five systems approaches discussed in this volume: system dynamics (SD), the viable systems model (VSM), strategic options development and analysis (SODA), soft systems methodology (SSM) and critical systems heuristics (CSH) has a pedigree. Not in the sense of the sometimes absurd spectacle of animals paraded at dog shows. Rather, their pedigree derives from their systems foundations, their capacity to evolve and their flexibility in use. None of the five approaches has developed out of use in restricted and controlled contexts of either low or high levels of complicatedness. Neither has any one of them evolved as a consequence of being applied only to situations with either presumed stakeholder agreement on purpose, or courteous disagreement amongst stakeholders, or stakeholder coercion. The compilation is not a celebration of abstract ‘methodologies', but of theoretically robust approaches that have a genuine pedigree in practice.

    Hazardous wastes contaminated with radionuclides, chemicals, and explosives exist across the Department of Energy complex and need to be remediated due to environmental concerns. Currently, an opportunity is being developed to dramatically reduce remediation costs and to assist in the acceleration of schedules associated with these wastes by deploying a Hot Spot Removal System. Removing the hot spot from the waste site will remove risk driver(s) and enable another, more cost effective process/option/remedial alternative (i.e., capping) to be applied to the remainder of the site. The Hot Spot Removal System consists of a suite of technologies that will be utilized to locate and remove source terms. Components of the system can also be used in a variety of other cleanup activities. This Hot Spot Removal System Description document presents technologies that were considered for possible inclusion in the Hot Spot Removal System, technologies made available to the Hot Spot Removal System, industrial interest in the Hot Spot Removal System`s subsystems, the schedule required for the Hot Spot Removal System, the evaluation of the relevant technologies, and the recommendations for equipment and technologies as stated in the Plan section.

    We construct a large family of evidently integrable Hamiltonian systems which are generalizations of the KM system. The algorithm uses the root system of a complex simple Lie algebra. The Hamiltonian vector field is homogeneous cubic but in a number of cases a simple change of variables transforms such a system to a quadratic Lotka-Volterra system. We present in detail all such systems in the cases of A3, A4 and we also give some examples from higher dimensions. We classify all possible Lotka-Volterra systems that arise via this algorithm in the An case.

  3. Systems Theory and Systems Approach to Leadership

    Dr.Sc. Berim Ramosaj

    2014-06-01

    Full Text Available Systems theory is product of the efforts of many researchers to create an intermediate field of coexistence of all sciences. If not for anything else, because of the magnitude that the use of systemic thinking and systemic approach has taken, it has become undisputed among the theories. Systems theory not only provides a glossary of terms with which researchers from different fields can be understood, but provides a framework for the presentation and interpretation of phenomena and realities. This paper addresses a systematic approach to leadership, as an attempt to dredge leadership and systems theory literature to find the meeting point. Systems approach is not an approach to leadership in terms of a manner of leader’s work, but it’s the leader's determination to factorize in his leadership the external environment and relationships with and among elements. Leader without followers is unable to exercise his leadership and to ensure their conviction he should provide a system, a structure, a purpose, despite the alternative chaos. Systems approach clarifies the thought on the complexity and dynamism of the environment and provides a framework for building ideas. If the general system theory is the skeleton of science (Boulding: 1956, this article aims to replenish it with leadership muscles by prominent authors who have written on systems theory and leadership, as well as through original ideas. In this work analytical methods were used (by analyzing approaches individually as well as synthetic methods (by assaying individual approaches in context of entirety. The work is a critical review of literature as well as a deductive analysis mingled with models proposed by authors through inductive analysis. Meta-analysis has been used to dissect the interaction and interdependence between leadership approaches.

    The development of new distribution automation applications is considerably wide nowadays. One of the most interesting areas is the development of a distribution management system (DMS) as an expansion of the traditional SCADA system. At the power transmission level such a system is called an energy management system (EMS). The idea of these expansions is to provide supporting tools for control center operators in system analysis and operation planning. The needed data for new applications is mainly available in some existing systems. Thus the computer systems of utilities must be integrated. The main data source for the new applications in the control center are the AM/FM/GIS (i.e. the network database system), the SCADA, and the customer information system (CIS). The new functions can be embedded in some existing computer system. This means a strong dependency on the vendor of the existing system. An alternative strategy is to develop an independent system which is integrated with other computer systems using well-defined interfaces. The latter approach makes it possible to use the new applications in various computer environments, having only a weak dependency on the vendors of the other systems. In the research project this alternative is preferred and used in developing an independent distribution management system

Many of today's most challenging technical and policy questions can be reduced to a distributed economic control problem. Indeed, economically based control of large-scale systems is founded on the conjecture that the price-based regulation (e.g., auctions, markets) results in an optimal allocation of resources and emergent optimal system control. This report explores the state-of-the-art physical analogs for understanding the behavior of some econophysical systems and deriving stable and robust control strategies for using them. We review and discuss applications of some analytic methods based on a thermodynamic metaphor, according to which the interplay between system entropy and conservation laws gives rise to intuitive and governing global properties of complex systems that cannot be otherwise understood. We apply these methods to the question of how power markets can be expected to behave under a variety of conditions.

    The Rover Waste Assay System (RWAS) is a nondestructive assay system designed for the rapid assay of highly-enriched {sup 235}U contaminated piping, tank sections, and debris from the Rover nuclear rocket fuel processing facility at the Idaho Chemical Processing Plant. A scanning system translates a NaI(Tl) detector/collimator system over the structural components where both relative and calibrated measurements for {sup 137}Cs are made. Uranium-235 concentrations are in operation and is sufficiently automated that most functions are performed by the computer system. These functions include system calibration, problem identification, collimator control, data analysis, and reporting. Calibration of the system was done through a combination of measurements on calibration standards and benchmarked modeling. A description of the system is presented along with the methods and uncertainties associated with the calibration and analysis of the system for components from the Rover facility. 4 refs., 2 figs., 4 tabs.

    such as medical and manufacturing. These new sensor applications have implications for information systems (IS) and, the authors visualize this new class of information systems as fractals growing from an established class of systems; namely that of information systems (IS). The identified applications...... and implications are used as an empirical basis for creating a model for these small new information systems. Such sensor systems are called embedded systems in the technical sciences, and the authors want to couple it with general IS. They call the merger of these two important research areas (IS and embedded...... systems) for micro information systems (micro-IS). It is intended as a new research field within IS research. An initial framework model is established, which seeks to capture both the possibilities and constraints of this new paradigm, while looking simultaneously at the fundamental IS and ICT aspects...

    The ITER reference system uses low-temperature water for heat removal and high-temperature helium for bake-out. As these systems share common equipment, bake-out cannot be performed until the cooling system is drained and dried, and the reactor cannot be started until the helium has been purged from the cooling system. This study examines the feasibility of using a single high-temperature fluid to perform both heat removal and bake-out. The high temperature required for bake-out would also be in the range for power production. The study examines cost, operational benefits, and impact on reactor safety of two options: a high-pressure water system, and a low-pressure organic system. It was concluded that the cost savings and operational benefits are significant; there are no significant adverse safety impacts from operating either the water system or the organic system; and the capital costs of both systems are comparable

    1978-01-01

    The System Performance Optimization has become an important and difficult field for large scientific computer centres. Important because the centres must satisfy increasing user demands at the lowest possible cost. Difficult because the System Performance Optimization requires a deep understanding of hardware, software and workload. The optimization is a dynamic process depending on the changes in hardware configuration, current level of the operating system and user generated workload. With the increasing complication of the computer system and software, the field for the optimization manoeuvres broadens. The hardware of two manufacturers IBM and CDC is discussed. Four IBM and two CDC operating systems are described. The description concentrates on the organization of the operating systems, the job scheduling and I/O handling. The performance definitions, workload specification and tools for the system stimulation are given. The measurement tools for the System Performance Optimization are described. The results of the measurement and various methods used for the operating system tuning are discussed. (Auth.)

    The Upgraded RECOVER (Remote Continual Verification) system is a communication system for remote continual verification of security and safeguards status of nuclear material in principal nuclear facilities. The system is composed of a command center and facility sub-systems. A command center is a mini-computer system to process C/S (Containment and Surveillance) status data. Facility sub-systems consists of OSM (On-site Multiplexer), MU (Monitoring Unit) and C/S sensor. The system uses public telephone network for communication between a command center and facility sub-systems, and it encrypts communication data to prevent falsification and wiretapping by unauthorized persons. This system inherits the design principle of RECOVER system that was tested by IAEA before. We upgraded and expanded its capabilities more than those of RECOVER. The development of this system began in 1983, and it finished in 1987. Performance tests of the system were carried out since 1987. It showed a farely good result with some indications which should need further improvements. The Upgraded RECOVER system provides timely information about the status of C/S systems, which could contribute to the reduction of inspection effort and the improvement of cost performance.

We began with a discussion of several terms such as testability, then described some systems that call for highly reliable hardware and software. The article concluded with a discussion of methods that can be used to achieve higher reliability in computer systems. Reliability and fault tolerance in computers probably will continue to grow in importance. As more and more systems are computerized, people will want assurances about the reliability of these systems, and their ability to work properly even when sub-systems fail.

    The objective of this analysis is to identify issues and criteria that apply to the design of the Subsurface Emplacement Transportation System (SET). The SET consists of the track used by the waste package handling equipment, the conductors and related equipment used to supply electrical power to that equipment, and the instrumentation and controls used to monitor and operate those track and power supply systems. Major considerations of this analysis include: (1) Operational life of the SET; (2) Geometric constraints on the track layout; (3) Operating loads on the track; (4) Environmentally induced loads on the track; (5) Power supply (electrification) requirements; and (6) Instrumentation and control requirements. This analysis will provide the basis for development of the system description document (SDD) for the SET. This analysis also defines the interfaces that need to be considered in the design of the SET. These interfaces include, but are not limited to, the following: (1) Waste handling building; (2) Monitored Geologic Repository (MGR) surface site layout; (3) Waste Emplacement System (WES); (4) Waste Retrieval System (WRS); (5) Ground Control System (GCS); (6) Ex-Container System (XCS); (7) Subsurface Electrical Distribution System (SED); (8) MGR Operations Monitoring and Control System (OMC); (9) Subsurface Facility System (SFS); (10) Subsurface Fire Protection System (SFR); (11) Performance Confirmation Emplacement Drift Monitoring System (PCM); and (12) Backfill Emplacement System (BES)

    1998-01-01

    A system and method provides for the creation of a highly graphical expert system without the need for programming in code. An expert system is created by initially building a data interface, defining appropriate Mission, User-Defined, Inferred, and externally-generated GenSAA (EGG) data variables whose data values will be updated and input into the expert system. Next, rules of the expert system are created by building appropriate conditions of the rules which must be satisfied and then by building appropriate actions of rules which are to be executed upon corresponding conditions being satisfied. Finally, an appropriate user interface is built which can be highly graphical in nature and which can include appropriate message display and/or modification of display characteristics of a graphical display object, to visually alert a user of the expert system of varying data values, upon conditions of a created rule being satisfied. The data interface building, rule building, and user interface building are done in an efficient manner and can be created without the need for programming in code.

However, in theory and in practice there is no model of operation, which would provide a harmonized and target oriented development. A partial solution is offered by sustainable development, which tries to define and carry out common goals of mankind with a harmonized implementation of human activities at all levels of its living and behaviour. Companies belong to central institutions of modern society which essentially co–create the sustainability of society. The company’s endeavour by simulation to prepare models of their goals concerning their internal and external environment. On the base of systemic treatment, we can define companies as business system, which can survive in a log-run only on the basis of sustainable development. The business system can also be supported by the application of the anticipatory systems. The anticipatory systems can be, in this sense, understood as an entity of the methodological approach, techniques and modes of work. Their characteristics have, a direct impact on the determination of goals, on the orientation of operation, and hence on the achievement of the business system results.

  5. Operating System for Runtime Reconfigurable Multiprocessor Systems

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available Operating systems traditionally handle the task scheduling of one or more application instances on processor-like hardware architectures. RAMPSoC, a novel runtime adaptive multiprocessor System-on-Chip, exploits the dynamic reconfiguration on FPGAs to generate, start and terminate hardware and software tasks. The hardware tasks have to be transferred to the reconfigurable hardware via a configuration access port. The software tasks can be loaded into the local memory of the respective IP core either via the configuration access port or via the on-chip communication infrastructure (e.g. a Network-on-Chip. Recent-series of Xilinx FPGAs, such as Virtex-5, provide two Internal Configuration Access Ports, which cannot be accessed simultaneously. To prevent conflicts, the access to these ports as well as the hardware resource management needs to be controlled, e.g. by a special-purpose operating system running on an embedded processor. For that purpose and to handle the relations between temporally and spatially scheduled operations, the novel approach of an operating system is of high importance. This special purpose operating system, called CAP-OS (Configuration Access Port-Operating System, which will be presented in this paper, supports the clients using the configuration port with the services of priority-based access scheduling, hardware task mapping and resource management.

  6. Evaluation of the reliability of electric power transmission systems; Evaluacion de confiabilidad de sistemas de transmision de energia electrica

    Vega Ortiz, Miguel

    1989-07-01

    algorithm in a digital program, this was proved in a personal computer applying it to IEEE transmission systems evaluated with other methods, among them one of 140 buses and 199 transmission lines. The results as far as reliability indexes compared with the other methods were very satisfactory and promising as far as required CPU time and memory for larger systems. [Spanish] En esta tesis se ataca el problema de la Evaluacion de la Confiabilidad de los Sistemas de Transmision de Energia Electrica para fines de su planeacion integral. Una vez descrito el problema se presentan los indices que miden la confiabilidad de los sistemas electricos de potencia. Despues se describen los metodos para evaluar las redes de transmision, como el de Enumeracion de Contingencias, el Monte Carlo, el de Markov y los metodos para sistemas complejos como el de Cortes Minimos. Este ultimo se desarrolla ampliamente por las ventajas que presenta su aplicacion en la planeacion de redes grandes y complejas. El metodo de cortes minimos consta de dos grandes pasos: Determinar los cortes minimos para los puntos de carga y calcular los indices de confiabilidad en base a los cortes minimos. Los algoritmos convencionales para la determinacion de cortes minimos consideran un problema por cada punto de carga en forma independiente pasando por una determinacion de caminos minimos. En este tipo de algoritmos el tiempo de CPU y el espacio en memoria requeridos crecen exponencialmente para el caso de sistemas de transmision grandes, lo que representa una fuerte restriccion para su aplicacion. Para resolver este problema se establecio una metodologia en la que se modela el sistema por medio de un grafo y se determinan los cortes minimos con un algoritmo basado en la construccion de ciclos en el grafo dual. Con estos cortes se evalua la conexidad y capacidad de la red, obteniendose los indices de confiabilidad para cada bus y para el sistema. Estos indices se calculan con la representacion equivalente para

    1977-01-01

    The design and operation of the two radioactive gas processing systems at the Fast Flux Test Facility (FFTF) exemplifies the concept that will be used in the first generation of Liquid Metal Fast Breeder Reactors (LMFBR's). The two systems, the Radioactive Argon Processing System (RAPS) and the Cell Atmosphere Processing System (CAPS), process the argon and nitrogen used in the FFTF for cover gas on liquid metal systems and as inert atmospheres in steel lined cells housing sodium equipment. The RAPS specifically processes the argon cover gas from the reactor coolant system, providing for decontamination and eventual reuse. The CAPS processes radioactive gasses from inerted cells and other liquid metal cover gas systems, providing for decontamination and ultimate discharge to the atmosphere. The cryogenic processing of waste gas by both systems is described

    Campbell, G.K.; Hall, J.R. II

    1985-01-01

    The objectives of an integrated security system are to detect intruders and unauthorized activities with a high degree of reliability and the to deter and delay them until effective response/engagement can be accomplished. Definition of an effective integrated security system requires proper application of a system engineering methodology. This paper summarizes a methodology and describes its application to the problem of integrated security system definition. This process includes requirements identification and analysis, allocation of identified system requirements to the subsystem level and provides a basis for identification of synergistic subsystem elements and for synthesis into an integrated system. The paper discusses how this is accomplished, emphasizing at each step how system integration and subsystem synergism is considered. The paper concludes with the product of the process: implementation of an integrated security system
