    The Interaction Effects of the Parameters on Optimization Design in Paper Production Waste Usage on Alkali-Activated Slag with Taguchi Method

    Teng Yi1,*, Shuenn-Ren Liou1, Wen-Yih Kuo1,2

    Journal of Renewable Materials, Vol.10, No.6, pp. 1753-1772, 2022, DOI:10.32604/jrm.2022.018587

    Abstract The paper investigates the second-order interactions of parameters in an alkali-activated mixture of paper production waste (PPW) and blast furnace slag (BFS) in Taguchi method. The PPW including lime mud (LM) and paper sludge (PS). This paper provides the experimental models to assess the compressive and flexural strength of them at 7-day and 28-day. The results have shown that the second-order interactions between PPW and alkali-activated activator exists in each experimental model, and the significant interactions affect the selection of optimal compositions. Compared with the interactions between the PPW themselves, the interactions between PPW and alkali-activated parameters are the main… More >

    Update on Fe-dependent oxidative metabolism in vivo: An integrative view

    Natacha E PILONI, Elizabeth ROBELLO, Julián G BONETTO, Susana PUNTARULO*

    BIOCELL, Vol.40, No.1, pp. 39-42, 2016, DOI:10.32604/biocell.2016.40.039

    Abstract Fe is essential for human life because it constitutes the required cofactor for proteins of diverse biological functions. However, the development of oxidative stress by exposure to excessive Fe, share signaling pathways with other treatments including activation of redox-sensitive factors. This study was focused on the comparison on the effects of Fe in the brain and other organs in vivo. The oxidative effects triggered by Fe overload strongly depend not only on the administration protocol, but also on the Fe-compound used, and the studied organ. In both the liver and the brain, Fe content drastically increased after Fe-dextran administration. However,… More >

    Prediction Method of Vibration and Noise Regarding Mechanical Systems by Means of Experimental Modeling

    N.Ishizuka1, T.Okada2, T.Ikeno2, K.Shiomi2, M.Okuma3

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.6, No.2, pp. 145-150, 2008, DOI:10.3970/icces.2008.006.145

    Abstract The accurate modeling of structures is very important for any engineering analysis such as simulation and design optimization of mechanical systems for noise and vibration. It is desired that such a modeling process should not be time-consuming and that the created model must have structural dynamic properties corresponding with the actual ones. But in practice, it is often difficult or even impossible to satisfy the desire by using conventional theoretical methods such as the Finite Element Method (FEM) when we consider actual mechanical systems which consist of many substructures. In this paper, under the assumption that vibration tests can be… More >

    On the Indentation of a Chemically-treated Polymeric Membrane

    A. P. S. Selvadurai1, Q. Yu2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.9, No.1, pp. 85-110, 2005, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2005.009.085

    Abstract A characteristic feature of a polymeric material such as PVC is its hyperelasticity or the ability to experience large strains prior to failure. The exposure of PVC to chemicals such as acetone and ethanol results in embrittlement or the loss of the hyperelasticity property. In this paper, we examine the mechanical behaviour of a PVC membrane that has been exposed to ethanol. Due to leaching of the plasticizer, the constitutive response of the PVC changes from a hyperelastic material to a hardened material that displays dominant yield behaviour and particularly one that is capable of experiencing post-yield large strains and… More >

    Cyclic Bending Contributes to High Stress in a Human Coronary Atherosclerotic Plaque and Rupture Risk: In Vitro Experimental Modeling and Ex Vivo MRI-Based Computational Modeling Approach

    Chun Yang∗,†, Dalin Tang∗,‡, Shunichi Kobayashi§, Jie Zheng, Pamela K. Woodard§, Zhongzhao Teng*, Richard Bach||, David N. Ku∗∗

    Molecular & Cellular Biomechanics, Vol.5, No.4, pp. 259-274, 2008, DOI:10.3970/mcb.2008.005.259

    Abstract Many acute cardiovascular syndromes such as heart attack and stroke are caused by atherosclerotic plaque ruptures which often happen without warning. MRI-based models with fluid-structure interactions (FSI) have been introduced to perform flow and stress/strain analysis for atherosclerotic plaques and identify possible mechanical and morphological indices for accurate plaque vulnerability assessment. In this paper, cyclic bending was added to 3D FSI coronary plaque models for more accurate mechanical predictions. Curvature variation was prescribed using the data of a human left anterior descending (LAD) coronary artery. Five computational models were constructed based on ex vivo MRI human coronary plaque data to… More >
