  • Emergence of the supply network in Finnish industry: experiment in theoretical reconstruction

    This paper analyses the formation of supply chains in the Finnish telecommunications and metal industries using transaction cost theory as an analytical device. The purpose is to cope with different issues associated with networking decisions in such dyad relations where asymmetric large buyers and small subcontracting firms negotiate interfirm cooperation with each other. In the first part of ...

  • Analytical Devices for the Measurement of Water Vapor in the Natural Gas Process and Transmission Industry

    ABSTRACT The determination of water vapor (and water dew point) is crucial in the processing, custody transfer and transport of natural gas. High levels of water vapor in a natural gas stream can lead to a number of problems which include the formation of hydrates and the contribution to freezing and corrosion of plant and equipment. There are a number of ways of determining the water vapor ...

  • Analytical Devices for the Measurement of Water Vapor and Hydrocarbon Dew-Point in Natural Gas

    Introduction The determination of water vapor (water dew point) is crucial in the processing, custody transfer and transport of natural gas. High levels of water vapor in a natural gas stream can lead to a number of problems which include the formation of hydrates and the contribution to corrosion of plant and equipment. Furthermore, water vapor present in natural gas streams affects the ...

  • Silicon optocouplers for biosensing

    Here we review on the fabrication and the bioanalytical applications of a monolithic silicon optocoupler that integrates an array of silicon avalanche diodes as light sources, detectors and silicon nitride optical fibres, all intercoupled through a self-alignment technique. The optocoupler is combined with a microfluidic module that allows for simultaneous real-time sensing of multiple analytes. ...

  • Derivation of flood frequency curves through a bivariate rainfall distribution based on copula functions: application to an urban catchment in northern Italy's climate

    The utilization of continuous approaches, namely analytical-probabilistic methods, has often been advocated for hydraulic device sizing, in order to overcome some deficiencies of the design event method. In the analytical distribution derivation, however, strong simplifying hypotheses are usually adopted. Rainfall depth and duration independency is the most unrealistic, even if it usually ...

  • Analysis of Isocyanates using the ASSET EZ4-NCO Dry Sampler

    Introduction Isocyanates are used as a raw material to produce a number of products such as automotive paints, rigid and spray foam insulation, and furniture. Personal exposure can occur while the products made with isocyanates are being applied, or when the materials are removed by grinding or thermal degradation. Workers who are exposed to these compounds are at risk for respiratory ...
