  • Biosensor with total internal reflection imaging ellipsometry

    In order to monitor multiple protein reaction processes simultaneously, a biosensor based on imaging ellipsometry operated in the total internal reflection mode is proposed. It could be realised as an automatic analysis for protein interaction processes with real-time label-free method. Its principle and methodology as well as a demonstration for its applications are presented.Keywords: ...

  • Capture and reuse of composable failure patterns

    Emerging safety analysis techniques use composition of failure models or fault simulation in formal models of a system to determine relationships between the causes and effects of failure. Most recent work has focused on developing system modelling and algorithms for automatic safety analysis. However, little work has focused on developing principles to improve reuse of safety analyses in the ...

  • Experimental and modelling analysis of dynamic characteristic for automatic tensioner in a two pulley–belt drive system

    Experimental methods and parameters to evaluate the dynamic performances of an automatic tensioner in engine front end accessory drive (FEAD) system are discussed. The dynamic performances of a tensioner include dynamic stiffness and loss angle. The influences of the pre–torque, excitation amplitude and excitation frequency on the dynamic characteristics of tensioner are measured and ...

  • mini LoP improved performance - Case Study

    Meeting very stringent total phosphorous requirements is a challenge for a treatment plant that is receiving wastewater from a dairy process. With a total phosphorous limit less than 100 ppb, a reliable, precise, highly accurate ortho‐phosphorous measurement is required to monitor and control the tertiary phosphorous removal process. Small town plants in the upper Midwest commonly encounter ...

  • Bioflocculation behaviours of microbial communities in water treatment

    We studied the flocculation behaviours of microbial communities in 21 soil, wastewater and activated sludge samples to clarify the effects of culture medium types on flocculation ability and screening efficiency, and to analyze diverse functions and microbial compositions. The bioflocculants produced by 33% of the microbial communities had flocculating efficiencies higher than 90%. ...

  • Determination of Cadmium in the Tap Water by Flameless Atomic Absorption Spectrometry

    The standard for the allowable concentration of cadmium in tap water has been revised downward from 0.01 mg/L or less to 0.003 mg/L or less according to Japan's "Ministerial Ordinance for Partial Revision of the Ordinance Concerning the Water Quality Standard" (The Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare Ordinance No.18) (February 17, 2010). The revised standard has been in effect since April 1, ...

  • Micro Flow Imaging Technology for Parenteral Applications

    MFI™ for Parenteral Drugs USP Chapter 788 (Particulate Matter in Injections) describes physical tests to be performed for the purpose of enumerating subvisible particles within specific size ranges. Recently the FDA has published a Stimuli Article (reference USPC 30 (6) Pages 2272-2280) demonstrating that advances in apparatus and quality control merit reducing the permissible particle counts ...

  • How big data is revolutionising metals analysis

    We’ve seen data emerge as a key resource for businesses in the last decade, and the metals industry is no different. Whilst investment has been made into process control and optimization, the industry has for many years lagged behind the likes of banking and media in its adoption of new digital technologies. The pace is picking up though – with innovations in analytics, mobile ...

  • Automated charge correction with OES – Adding quality AND efficiency

    To produce a sound casting in a foundry, the melt must have the right composition of specified grade metallic and non-metallic elements. Good foundry practices, including careful melt preparation and mould design, can help to avoid defects. However, depending on the source materials (raw material, sorted scrap or leftovers from previous melts) a procedure to refine or correct ...

  • Real-time sensing of bioaerosols: Review and current perspectives

    Abstract Detection of bioaerosols, or primary biological aerosol particles (PBAPs), has become increasingly important for a wide variety of research communities and scientific questions. In particular, real-time (RT) techniques for autonomous, online detection and characterization of PBAP properties in both outdoor and indoor environments are becoming more commonplace and have opened ...

  • LFG engine protection for Viridor - Case Study

    Rapid changes in landfill gas quality can damage the engines it powers. To keep watch, Viridor has installed static automatic gas analysis and reporting equipment supplied by Geotech at its Whitehead landfill site near Manchester. Every ten seconds the equipment measures concentrations of CH4, CO2 and O2 and outputs the data in three, 4-20 mA channel signals. Control circuits receive the ...

  • User acceptance of automatic vehicle location system technology: a study of motor carriers in Taiwan

    This paper aims to analyse the Automatic Vehicle Location System (AVLS) acceptance intentions of motor carriers. This study applies Structure Equation Modelling (SEM) to investigate the impact of three factors based on the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM): perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use and the social norm on the intention of motor carriers. Empirical results indicate that a revised ...

  • A formal method to analyse human reasoning and interpretation in incident management

    The study of human reasoning often concentrates on reasoningfrom an already assumed interpretation of the world, thereby neglectingreasoning towards an interpretation. In the recent literature within cognitivescience, the means taken from the area of nonmonotonic logic are proposed toanalyse the latter aspect of human reasoning. In this paper, this claim is furtherworked out and tested against ...

  • A brief overview of the research reactor FRM II

    The research reactor Forschungsneutronenquelle Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) is operated using a single compact fuel element embedded in a large heavy water filled moderator tank. Consequently the thermal neutron flux density exhibits its maximum value outside the fuel element in an area which is accessible for experimental installations. A further advantage of the use of heavy water is that it ...

  • Flow measurements in sewers based on image analysis: automatic flow velocity algorithm

    Discharges of combined sewer overflows (CSOs) and stormwater are recognized as an important source of environmental contamination. However, the harsh sewer environment and particular hydraulic conditions during rain events reduce the reliability of traditional flow measurement probes. An in situ system for sewer water flow monitoring based on video images was evaluated. Algorithms to determine ...
