Optimizing the hydrocyclone for ballast water treatment using computational fluid dynamics
Environmental concern related to the transfer of Invasive Aquatic Species by ships ballast water has given rise to the development of a vast array of ballast water treatment systems. The complex environmental challenges ...
A fast mode decision algorithm of adaptive inter-layer prediction in scalable video coding
A fast mode decision algorithm is proposed to solve the computation complexity for enhancement hierarchical-B pictures with adaptive inter-layer prediction in H.264/AVC scalable extension, scalable video coding. This method ...
Development of a haptic environment for biomedical engineering simulation An educational software to help demonstrate a virtual human torso model
In the current world, by and large, computer interaction relies on visual and auditory feedback and to make interactions more realistic, tactile response would be essential e.g. for medical training simulations. Haptic ...
Design considerations of scheduling systems suitable for PCB manufacturing
This paper identifies five key design characteristics of production scheduling software systems in printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing. The authors consider that, in addition to an effective scheduling engine, a ...
The effect of the pulse electric current treatment on residual stresses arising in grinding
We show experimentally that the passing of a pulse electric current through a strip of stainless steel with a surface layer containing grinding-induced tensile stresses substantially reduces their level. In this case, the ...
A Fast Mode Decision Algorithm in Spatial and Temporal Scalable Video Coding
To decrease the computational complexity of adaptive inter-layer prediction and improve the encoding efficiency in spatial and temporal scalable video coding, a mode decision algorithm is proposed by exploiting the part ...

Influences of nanoparticle zinc oxide on acutely isolated rat hippocampal CA3 pyramidal neurons
The effects of zinc oxide nanoparticles (nano-ZnO) on the properties of voltage-dependent sodium, potassium currents and evoked action potentials were studied in acutely isolated rat hippocampal CA3 pyramidal neurons at ...
Influence of pulsed electric current treatment on strength of reinforcing steel and its welds under impact loading
(EDP Sciences, 2009)
Results of static and impact tension tests of as-received reinforcing steel specimens, specimens with weld joints in their test portion, as well as specimens after high-density pulse current pretreatment are presented. As ...
BS-ISO helical gear fatigue life estimation and wear quantitative features analysis
Lack of representative theoretical models for gear wear causes difficulties in their useful lifetime prediction. Critical operating parameters, such as loading and lubrication, affect the wear process in a very complex ...
