    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.14, No.1, pp. 1-7, 2020, DOI:10.5098/hmt.14.15

    Abstract This study aims at considering the properties of heat transfer and magneto-hydrodynamics (MHD) Casson nanofluid at the existence of free convection boundary layer flow with Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) suspended in human blood/water as based fluid on a stretching sheet. Two types of CNTs nanoparticles, single walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) and multi walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs), are taken into account. The governing partial differential equations are transformed to partial differential equations using similar transformation, then solved numerically by an implicit finite difference scheme known as Keller-box method (KBM). The results for physical quantities, the local skin friction, and local Nusselt number,… More >

    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.15, No.1, pp. 1-7, 2020, DOI:10.5098/hmt.15.21

    Abstract The augmentation of the heat transfer in heat exchangers is one of the methods to increase efficiency of the system. The double tube heat exchanger is selected to many suitable techniques of heat transfer enhancement. In this study; the friction factor and heat transfer coefficient of double tube is evaluated experimentally. The Al2O3 nanoparticles dispersed in ethylene glycol (EG) with a diameter 50 nm and the weight concentration (0.1%, 0.3%, 0.5%, 0.7%, 1%) has been utilized. Then the effect of parallel current and counter current with different ranges of Reynolds number (10,000 to 30,000) on the friction factor and heat… More >

    Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Mental Health of Healthcare Workers–A Perception of Indian Hospital Administrators

    Anahita Ali*, Santosh Kumar

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.7, pp. 833-845, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.028799

    Abstract Since the coronavirus pandemic, many factors led to the change in the mental well-being of hospital administrators and their staff. The pandemic negatively impacted the availability and capability of health professionals to deliver essential services and meet rising demand. Therefore, this study aimed to understand the perspective of hospital administrators about issues and challenges that negatively impacted their staff’s mental health and hospital administrators’ coping response to mitigate those challenges and issues. An exploratory qualitative study was conducted with 17 hospital administrators (superintendents, deputy superintendents, nursing in charge and hospital in charge) working in a government district hospital of Rajasthan… More > Graphic Abstract

    Impact of the Railway Vehicle Characteristics in Its Runnability in the Presence of Strong Winds

    Pedro Montenegro1,*, Raphael Heleno2, Hermes Carvalho2, Diogo Ribeiro3, Rui Calçada1, Chris Baker4

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.24, No.1, pp. 1-2, 2022, DOI:10.32604/icces.2022.08678

    Abstract This work consists of evaluating the impact of the most relevant characteristics of railway vehicles, namely geometric, mechanical and aerodynamic properties, in their runnability in the presence of strong winds, more precisely in the risk of derailment. Such objective is achieved by performing several dynamic with a non-linear vehicle-structure interaction model developed by the authors [1,2] and used in other works in this field [3,4], which allows the evaluation of the wheel-rail contact forces and, consequently, the unloading index, as suggested by the European Norm EN 14067-6 [5]. The calculations are carried out for several scenarios characterized by different train… More >

    Insecticidal Potential of α-Pinene and β-Caryophyllene against Myzus persicae and Their Impacts on Gene Expression

    Talha Ali Chohan1,*, Tahir Ali Chohan2,*, Muhammad Zahid Mumtaz1, Muhammad Waqar Alam3, Salah ud Din4, Iqra Naseer5, Ayesha Riaz1, Tayyeba Naseem1, Areeba Iftikhar6, Dur E. Najaf Ali1, Mubashir Hassan7, Hayssam M. Ali8

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.92, No.7, pp. 1943-1954, 2023, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2023.026945

    Abstract Myzus persicae (M. persicae) is now considered a threat to agricultural crops due to economic losses. Numerous synthetic insecticides applied every year against M. persicae, are reported to be unsafe for environment, humans, and beneficial insects. Furthermore, several species of Myzus have been found to develop resistance due to over application of these insecticides. Therefore, it is required to find some novel insecticide that would be safe for the environment as well as for humans. In the current study, two major pure constituents α-pinene and β-caryophyllene were evaluated for their insecticidal potential against M. persicae using a fumigant toxicity assay.… More >

    Impact of Precariousness and Perceived Social Support, on the Return to Work of Women with Breast Cancer, in the Year Following the Beginning of Adjuvant Treatments

    Influence de la précarité sociale et du soutien social perçu, sur le retour au travail des femmes ayant un cancer du sein, dans l’année suivant le début des traitements adjuvants

    B. Porro, A. Michel, F. Cousson-Gélie

    Psycho-Oncologie, Vol.16, No.2, pp. 273-281, 2022, DOI:10.3166/pson-2022-0181

    Abstract The aim is to assess the associations between social precariousness, perceived social support, and the return to work (RTW) in the first year following the beginning of adjuvant breast cancer treatment. Sixty-eight breast cancer patients encountered when starting their adjuvant treatment (T0) were followed up at 3 (T1) and 12 months (T2). Friends’ informative support at T0 favours the RTW at T1. Precariousness and negative support at T0 and T2 decrease the likelihood of RTW at T2. RTW support should be offered and tailored at the outset of treatment.

    Abstract This paper presents our research thesis with the aim of obtaining the interuniversity diploma of sexology.
    Aim: The objective of our research is to observe the link between the sense of “we-ness, we-disease” and the sexual resilience of the couple facing breast cancer.
    Procedure: The methodology was qualitative and observational. Five couples were included in the study and participated in a couple interview. The transcription of research interviews was analyzed using the “We-ness coding scale” (Reid) and a thematic content analysis of intimate and sexual life of the five couples.
    Results: For three couples, the content analysis of the interviews… More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.75, No.3, pp. 4955-4972, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.037436

    Abstract Education quality has undoubtedly become an important local and international benchmark for education, and an institute’s ranking is assessed based on the quality of education, research projects, theses, and dissertations, which has always been controversial. Hence, this research paper is influenced by the institutes ranking all over the world. The data of institutes are obtained through Google Scholar (GS), as input to investigate the United Kingdom’s Research Excellence Framework (UK-REF) process. For this purpose, the current research used a Bespoke Program to evaluate the institutes’ ranking based on their source. The bespoke program requires changes to improve the results by… More >
