    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.14, No.1, pp. 1-11, 2020, DOI:10.5098/hmt.14.27

    Abstract Numerical predictions on heat transfer characteristic, flow topology and thermal performance assessment in a square duct are presented. The passive technique, insertion of the vortex generator, is opted to develop the heat transfer rate in the square duct heat exchanger. The vortex generator of the present research is Double V-Orifice (DVO). The square duct equipped with DVO is tested with various parameters. The influences of DVO height, b, to the duct height, H, or b/H, gap spacing between the outer edge of the orifice and the duct wall, s, to the duct height or s/H and flow directions (tip-pointing-Downstream and… More >

    Fereshteh Salimi Nanadegani, Bengt Sunden*

    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.14, No.1, pp. 1-11, 2020, DOI:10.5098/hmt.14.21

    Abstract In this experimental study, mass transfer and hydrodynamic parameters of water/kerosene/acetic acid system in a packed column were investigated, in which the mass transfer direction was set from the continuous phase (saturated water of kerosene and acetic acid) to the dispersed phase (saturated kerosene of water) in all the experiments. To assess the impact of nanoparticles on mass transfer, the experiments were performed in the presence of SiO2 nanoparticles and absence of the nanoparticles. The results showed that the addition of the nanoparticles to the base fluid (saturated kerosene of water) increased the mass transfer efficiency to the critical concentration,… More >

    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.14, No.1, pp. 1-9, 2020, DOI:10.5098/hmt.14.8

    Abstract The present work investigates the wall temperature prediction at supercritical pressure of water by CFD and compares the prediction of CFD and that of 11 empirical correlations available in literature. Supercritical-water heat transfer experimental data, covering a mass flux range of 400-1500 kg/m2s, heat flux range of 150-1000 kW/m2, at pressure 241 bar and diameter 10 mm tube, were obtained from literature. CFD simulations have been carried out for those operating conditions and compared with experimental data. Around 362 experimental wall temperature data of both heat transfer enhancement and heat transfer deterioration region have been taken for comparison. A visual… More >

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.92, No.7, pp. 1975-1986, 2023, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2023.028232

    Abstract Pollination biology studies of the endangered herbal medicines Dendrobium chrysotoxum were conducted in natural pollination conditions using flower observation, pollinator observation and artificial pollination experiments. Populations of D. chrysotoxum with fragrance and nectar were pollinated by Ctenoplectra davidi Valhalla (Hymenoptera: Apidae) species. The floral structure of D. chrysotoxum adapted precisely to its pollinators. Flowers had a low capsule setting (0.17%) under natural conditions. However, compared to open pollination, artificial pollination experiments showed a significant increase in capsule setting, and D. chrysotoxum was cross-compatible and self-compatible, but there was pollinator limitation also. This study will provide important information for the preservation… More >

    The Euthanasia Era: Grief Intervention in the Context of Anticipated Death

    À l’ère de l’euthanasie : la clinique du deuil en contexte de mort anticipée

    P. Laperle, M. Achille, D. Ummel

    Psycho-Oncologie, Vol.16, No.2, pp. 253-259, 2022, DOI:10.3166/pson-2022-0194

    Abstract Oncology and palliative care professionals benefit from considering the effect of euthanasia on their practice. Choosing the circumstances of one’s death is the zeitgeist, which impacts care trajectories. It becomes relevant to examine the influence of anticipated death (euthanasia or natural death) both on the patient and bereaved loved ones’ experience. We propose a relational approach and grief interventions based on the imprints left by death and the relational landscape of bereavement.

    D. Gros

    Psycho-Oncologie, Vol.16, No.2, pp. 260-264, 2022, DOI:10.3166/pson-2022-0192

    Abstract To fulfill its function as well as possible, medical art requires considering each patient in the totality of his biological and biographical being. However, the medical world faces a model fond of standardization of practices and inclined to give primacy to the requirements of science and machines over those of humans. As health professionals, we all strive daily to preserve a harmonious alliance between science and humanity. We aspire to maintain it, but we are aware of the threats hanging over it. This awareness should encourage us to carry out an interdisciplinary reflection. A multidimensional object, infinitely overflowing the biomedical… More >

    Cartographie numérique du risque d’inondation dans le Nord-Est de la Tunisie par la méthode du rapport de fréquence et l’indice statistique

    Radhia Mansour, Abdessalem El Ghali

    Revue Internationale de Géomatique, Vol.29, No.3, pp. 339-360, 2019, DOI:10.3166/rig.2019.00093

    Abstract Flash floods are a type of natural disaster that poses a major threat to the population, urban constructions and road infrastructure and the environment. In Tunisia, this phenomenon is known since the sixties and has continued until today. The most important ones were recorded during the rainy years of 1969, 1983, 2003 and 2012. In order to identify areas at risk of flooding and reduce the vulnerability of the stakes, a Flash Flood Risk Mapping (FFRM) approach has been adopted for the development of a flood risk prevention plan (PPRI) in northeastern Tunisia. This method consists in: 1) integrating into… More >
