  • UCT Silane Cited in Organ-On-Chip

    The ventricular myocardium of the human heart is composed of an anisotropic tissue structure that allows for force generation and contraction to pump blood throughout the body. It has long been established that the collagen-rich, fibrous, extracellular matrix environment guides the formation of this laminar tissue architecture. The structural and mechanical properties of the cardiac ...

  • Analysis of precious metals in jewelry

    Abstract For 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. ...

  • Types of UV Light for Different Applications

    Types of UV Light for Different Applications Ultraviolet (UV) radiation was discovered in 1801 when the German physicist Johann Wilhelm Ritter observed that invisible rays just beyond the violet end of the visible spectrum darkened silver chloride-soaked paper more quickly than violet light itself. He called them "oxidizing rays" to emphasize chemical reactivity and to ...

  • FCCU-Special Valves-Increase the process performance and reliability

    Created in 1942 by a French engineer (Mr Eugène HOUDRY), the FCC process still the heart of each refinery in the world. This catalytic process contributes to the bigest volume of gasoline but it is probably the most critical and complex process in a refinery. Maintenance operations cost a fortune, and this is mainly due to the installed valves… Licensors, EPC and End-Users have well ...

  • San Diego County Water Authority Manages Steel Pipelines

    Utilities across the country are experiencing an increased rate of pipeline failures. In addition to problems precipitated by an aging water infrastructure, a lagging economy is affecting large-scale capital projects needed for repairing, replacing, and improving infrastructure. With funding gap estimates ranging between $200 billion and $1 trillion over the next 20 years, utilities must find ...

The ...

  • The hidden threat

    Many decisions that are made at the design stage of engineering can have a major impact on safety and cost during the operational stages. This is especially true of pipe supports. Corrosion under pipe supports (CUPS) is a growing problem and a particular threat to pipework integrity, as Laza Krstin, Principal Consultant at ABB Consulting, explains. For many operating companies, extending the ...

  • Investigating the deterioration of an industrial heritage structure

    Conservation and rehabilitation of heritage structures has turned into a prime concern in historically enriched countries, especially in developed societies. Modern technologically advanced societies often wish to keep and maintain the remains of architectural heritage sites and pass the essence of these tangible and intangible cultural values to future generations. The present study introduces a ...

  • Fluorescence imaging of nanobiomaterials: Thioflavin T in electrospun poly(vinyl alcohol) fibres

    Nanoindentation has been widely used to characterise the mechanical properties of various materials. As an alternative, we recently explored a new technique with which the Young's modulus of soft materials can be obtained using environment–sensitive fluorescent dyes. The fluorescence technique has an advantage over nanoindentation in that it can non–destructively measure the physical property of ...

  • Hydrostatic Pressure Test

    A hydrostatic test is performed to determine the integrity and soundness of pressure vessels and piping joints. A decrease in the applied pressure or leakage through the products or joints or plastic deformation or distortion or bulging in the product is indication of inadequate quality of the product under test.   This test method is also termed as Leak testing (based on ...

  • Forensic engineering of fire damaged concrete structures: state of the art

    All structures are likely to be subjected to elevated temperatures during an event of fire. Due to accidental thermal loads the structures may be subjected to cracking and that affect both the mechanical or structural properties. Even though total collapse of structure is rare, the structures or a part of it may suffer partial damage. Thus structures need to be thoroughly assessed in order to ...
