In this article, we study the behaviour of the RLC cells for the four configurations that we presented earlier in Abi Zeid Daou et al. (2009a). An electric circuit is used in order to study the fractional behaviour and the robustness of these RLC operators and compare their responses to the behaviour of the fractance which is an ideal fractional operator (Moreau et al., 2003). This analysis is conducted for both natural and forced responses. In more details, the initial conditions of the capacitors and inductances are neglected in the first case and they are taken into consideration in the second one. The number of initial conditions is related to the number of RLC cells used. The robustness of all arrangements is analysed by varying the unsteady parameter value which is represented by an inductance in the electrical circuit. This inductance represents a different variable parameter in each field of application. For example, in the hydropneumatic domain, this inductance refers to the mass of the vehicle as the mass has the main influence on the dynamics and the robustness when designing the active suspension (Moreau et al., 2001). A conclusion will sum up the results for all four arrangements and a confirmation that the phase constancy and the robustness are present in both modes.

Application note issue #5 - Cement Analysis August 2017
Cement analysis using FP program (Fundamental Parameters) Cement is a blend of several minerals. It is critical to control the elemental composition and properties such as strength, setting, time and color. ED-XRF is being used to analyze the raw components, raw meal, clinker, and the final cement product (Na, Mg, Al, Si, S, K, Ca, and Fe in Cement, Clinker, and Raw Meal).XRF is at the heart of the control of the production process in any modern cement works and is central to the ability of the cement maker...
Analysis of precious metals in jewelry
AbstractFor thousands of years, man learned the craft of making jewelry from gold. Gold is a noble metal which does not react with the air and has a shiny yellow color.Over the years, alloying of the gold was necessary to improve its properties since pure gold is too soft to be used for jewelry. Alloying of the gold is usually by low-cost metals such as copper, zinc, silver or nickel. Since different metals have different financial value, which determines the value of the jewelry, it is important to accurately...
Quantitative Analysis of Geological Samples- X-Calibur
Abstract Quantitative and qualitative analysis of geological samples (rocks and river sediments) was performed on Xenemetrix EDXRF Benchtop Spectrometer System, model X-Calibur Objective: Perform XRF measurements on certified geological reference materials to build calibration curves for the major oxides (Na2O, MgO, SiO2, Al2O3, SiO2, P2O5, SO3, K2O, CaO, TiO2, MnO and Fe2O3) and for trace elements Cr, Co, Ni and Pb in these samples. Quantify geological samples of unknown concentrations with respect to...
Quantitative analysis of iron in flour
Abstract A quantitative analysis of Iron in flour via Xenemetrix EDXRF Laboratory Spectrometer System was performed by model EX-3600M. The minimum detection limit for Fe in flour matrix was determined to 0.8 ppm at 3 sigma. Objective To design an easy method by using EDXRF technique for quick and convenient measurements of Fe in flour at the level of tens of ppm. Background EDXRF is a fast and non-destructive technique that can quantify any type of samples in solid, powder or liquid form within a few...
Return on Investment Using MANTECH Multi-Parameter Analysis Systems - Case Study
Since 2008 Eurofins has been using MANTECH systems at various facilities around the world. Their first system ran 200,000 samples in five years. The unit analyzed 7 different parameters per sample and operated 24 hours/day, 7 days/week. This generated €5,000,000 in revenue. Their initial investment was €60,000. The system discussed in this case study analyses pH, conductivity, alkalinity (speciated), turbidity and absolute color from a single 50ml tube. The cost per sample was 0.91 Euros. After factoring...
