Three-Dimensional Atom Probe Tomography Of Oxide, Anion, And Alkanethiolate Coatings On Gold, Yi Zhang, Andrew C. Hillier 2010 Iowa State University

Three-Dimensional Atom Probe Tomography Of Oxide, Anion, And Alkanethiolate Coatings On Gold, Yi Zhang, Andrew C. Hillier

Chemical and Biological Engineering Publications

We have used three-dimensional atom probe tomography to analyze several nanometer-thick and monomolecular films on gold surfaces. High-purity gold wire was etched by electropolishing to create a sharp tip suitable for field evaporation with a radius of curvature of layer, primarily consisting of water and atmospheric gases, was observed on a fresh tip. This sample exhibited crystalline lattice spacings consistent with the interlayer spacing of {200} lattice planes of bulk gold. A thin oxide layer was created on the gold surface via plasma oxidation, and the thickness and composition of this layer was measured. Clear evidence of a nanometer-thick oxide ...


Stretch Magnitude And Frequency-Dependent Actin Cytoskeleton Remodeling In Alveolar Epithelia, Brian Christopher DiPaolo, Guillaume Lenormand,, Jeffrey J. Fredberg, Susan S. Margulies 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Stretch Magnitude And Frequency-Dependent Actin Cytoskeleton Remodeling In Alveolar Epithelia, Brian Christopher Dipaolo, Guillaume Lenormand,, Jeffrey J. Fredberg, Susan S. Margulies

Departmental Papers (BE)

Alveolar epithelial cells (AEC) maintain integrity of the blood-gas barrier with gasket-like intercellular tight junctions (TJ) that are anchored internally to the actin cytoskeleton. We hypothesize that stretch rapidly reorganizes actin (<10 >min) into a perijunctional actin ring (PJAR) in a manner that is dependent on magnitude and frequency of the stretch, accompanied by spontaneous movement of actin-anchored receptors at the plasma membrane. Primary AEC monolayers were stretched biaxially to create a change in surface area (ΔSA) of 12%, 25%, or 37% in a cyclic manner at 0.25 Hz for up to 60 min, or held tonic at 25% ΔSA ...


Biomechanics Of The Toddler Head During Low-Height Falls: An Anthropomorphic Dummy Analysis Laboratory Investigation, Nicole G. Ibrahim, Susan S. Margulies 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Biomechanics Of The Toddler Head During Low-Height Falls: An Anthropomorphic Dummy Analysis Laboratory Investigation, Nicole G. Ibrahim, Susan S. Margulies

Departmental Papers (BE)

OBJECT

Falls are the most common environmental setting for closed head injuries in children between 2 and 4 years of age. The authors previously found that toddlers had fewer skull fractures and scalp/facial soft-tissue injuries, and more frequent altered mental status than infants for the same low-height falls (≤3 ft).

METHODS

To identify potential age-dependent mechanical load factors that may be responsible for these clinical findings, the authors created an instrumented dummy representing an 18-month-old child using published toddler anthropometry and mechanical properties of the skull and neck, and they measured peak angular acceleration during low-height falls (1, 2 ...

Assessment Of Climatic Vulnerability In The Upper Thames River Basin: Part 2, Leanna King, Tarana A. Solaiman, Slobodan P. Simonovic

Water Resources Research Report

Increasing greenhouse gas emissions will cause global temperature to rise in the coming years. Understanding the effects of rising temperature on the hydrologic cycle at a local scale is important in order to assess a wide scope of climate change impacts on management of water resources. Coupled Atmosphere-Ocean General Circulation Models (AOGCMs) are state-of-theart in climate change research, predicting the future climate based on plausible emission scenarios. Their spatial and temporal scales are quite large, so the results of their analyses must be brought to a local-scale through a downscaling process. There are several methods for downscaling AOGCM data; however ...

Recombinant Factors For Hemostasis, Jennifer Calcaterra 2010 University of Nebraska at Lincoln

Recombinant Factors For Hemostasis, Jennifer Calcaterra

Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering Theses, Dissertations, & Student Research

Trauma deaths are a result of hemorrhage in 37% of civilians and 47% military personnel and are the primary cause of death for individuals under 44 years of age. Current techniques used to treat hemorrhage are inadequate for severe bleeding. Preliminary research indicates that fibrin sealants (FS) alone or in combination with a dressing may be more effective; however, it has not been economically feasible for widespread use because of prohibitive costs related to procuring the proteins. To meet future demands for hemostatic therapies, FS will likely include recombinant human fibrinogen (rFI) and recombinant human Factor XIII (rFXIII). The underlying ...


Optimizing And Benchmarking Returnable Container Processes Within An Automotive Distribution System, Camille Chism 2010 Rochester Institute of Technology

Optimizing And Benchmarking Returnable Container Processes Within An Automotive Distribution System, Camille Chism

Theses

An analysis of Reusable Packaging in automobile manufacturing facilities, as well as a comparison to other industries, shows that returnable container systems are not being fully utilized.

In this study, methods to return and track packaging materials for reuse are examined. Issues identified through surveys and interviews are summarized, and a recommendation to more fully utilize systems currently in place is proposed. An evaluation based on utilizing the current system will enable us to assign a cost to current operations, and may support an investment in improved systems and technologies.

Most of the companies surveyed gauge functionality based on whether ...


Improving Robustness Of Hydrologic Parameter Estimation By The Use Of Moving Block Bootstrap Resampling, Hamid Moradkhani, Mohammad Ebtehaj, Hoshin V. Gupta 2010 Portland State University

Improving Robustness Of Hydrologic Parameter Estimation By The Use Of Moving Block Bootstrap Resampling, Hamid Moradkhani, Mohammad Ebtehaj, Hoshin V. Gupta

Civil and Environmental Engineering Faculty Publications and Presentations

Modeling of natural systems typically involves conceptualization and parameterization to simplify the representations of the underlying process. Objective methods for estimation of the model parameters then require optimization of a cost function, representing a measure of distance between the observations and the corresponding model predictions, typically by calibration in a static batch mode and/or via some dynamic recursive optimization approach. Recently, there has been a focus on the development of parameter estimation methods that appropriately account for different sources of uncertainty. In this context, we introduce an approach to sample the optimal parameter space that uses nonparametric block bootstrapping ...
