Usable work of macro-scale cavities in liquids
Schulz, Harry Edmar;Lombardi, Geraldo;Nascimento, Francisco Júlio do;Trebi,lio José Donizeti;Santos, Jorge Nicolau dos;Sim?es, André Luiz Andrade;
Journal of the Brazilian Society of Mechanical Sciences and Engineering , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S1678-58782012000400008
Abstract: it is shown that the generation of cavities in a liquid can produce usable work, which is illustrated by the stretching of a string. this work is done during the expansion of the cavity, and not with its collapse. basic equations are presented for the movement of a device moved by the so called cavity events. a theoretical solution is also proposed, which uses polynomial functions relating the so called "excess of pressure" in the cavity and time. evaluations of the force generated during the expansion of the cavity showed a mean peak value of about 58 n for the moving container, while measurements with the container fixed to a support showed a peak value of 476 n, considered somewhat overestimated, because high frequency oscillations seem to superpose the mean behavior. simultaneous phenomena occurring during the cavity events are also described. series of pictures of the experiments are presented.

Abstract: five morphological and agronomic characteristics were evaluated in seven squash lines. the experiment was carried out in completely randomized blocks, with three replications, and six-plant plots. genetic parameters, as well as simple and canonic correlations were estimated. heritability for average fruit weight and external longitudinal length were higher than 80%, with a variation index higher than one. thus, application of simple breeding methods, such as mass selection, will result in good selection gains. concerning simple correlations, most of the characteristic pairs (80%) had genotypic correlations higher than phenotypic and environmental correlations. simple and canonical correlations revealed that fruit average weight increased together with increments in pulp thickness and longitudinal and transversal fruit length. on the other hand, plants with more fruits produced smaller fruits (longitudinal length), with thinner pulp, but with higher transversal length. in this population, promising commercial genotypes, producing small fruits with thick pulps, can be obtained using selection indexes.

Abstract: the objective was to evaluate the effect of four different dosages of retinol palmitate 0 - (n=14), 500,000 (n=15), 1,000,000 (n=17) and 1,500,000 (n=16) international units (iu) of vitamin a in the form of retinol palmitate on production and quality of embryos recovered from nelore donor cows (n=64). the experiment was carried out in the embryo transfer company cauembryo in the county of funilandia - mg. cows were superovulated on the 10th (n=18),11th (n=10),12th (n=26) or 13th (n=10) days after estrus onset with an injection of 20 ml of folltropin? (vetrepharm, belleville, canada) or 10 ml of pluset? (i.f. serono,roma, itália) administered in decreasing doses for four days twice daily (each 12 h). vitamin a injection was delivered with the first fsh injection. luteolysis was induced on the 4th day of fsh treatment by giving 0.75 mg of sodium cloprostenol (ciosin?, coopers do brasil, s?o paulo, brasil) and donors observed in estrus were artificially inseminated 12 and 24 hours after the onset of estrus using semen of different bulls of proven fertility. statistical analysis was carried out using the genmod procedure of sas (sas institute, 1995). the number of viable embryos differed (p<0.0001), between control (3.6), and 500,000 (6.1), 1,000,000 (6.5) and 1,500,000 (6.7) vitamin a treatments. percentage of viable embryos also increased (p<0.01), from 0.51 in the control, to 0.57, 0.63 and 0.60 in order of increasing vitamin a treatment groups, respectively. number of total structures recovered (er) was not different between supplemented (9.5, 8.3 and 10.5 respectively for 500,000, 1,000,000 e 1,500,000 iu of vitamin a) and not supplemented (8.2). these results indicate that supplementation of vitamin a i.m. before flushing improves embryo quality without interfere in the quantity of embryos recovered.

Abstract: an index was developed to estimate the bioeconomic efficiency of production systems, identifying alternative scenarios that could improve their efficiency, and building isoefficiency relations in beef cattle production systems in rio grande do sul. the concept of return on investment was used to develop the indicator. scenarios regarded as efficient showed values higher than 3. the bioeconomic efficiency index for beef cattle production in the theoretical reference scenario was considered inefficient. at least four modifications in the variables method made it a bioeconomically efficient activity. these circumstances were studied using sensitivity analyses, with theoretical changes in the scenarios by changing variables two by two, while the others were kept constant. in rio grande do sul, alternatives that make the activity efficient were identified by changing productivity, production cost, land price and product price. isoefficiency relationships were identified in other scenarios. the application of this indicator in other agricultural activities, as well as the design of bioefficiency studies including both environmental and social welfare characteristics are recommended.

Agricultural Sciences (AS) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/as.2012.32027
Abstract: A study was carried out to evaluate the development of 12 tetraploid alfalfa cultivars exposed to Al toxicity in nutrient solution. Newly germinated seedlings of cultivars Alfa 200, Alto, Araucana, Costera, Crioula, Esmeralda, Falcon, F-708, Rio, Romagnola, Valley Plus, and Victoria, were exposed to either 0, 4, 8 or 12 mg·L-1 Al3+. Plants were analyzed regarding root length (RL) and dry matter (RDM), aerial part length (APL), and dry matter (APDM), hypocotyl length (HypL) and dry matter (HypDM), epicotyl length (EpiL) and dry matter (EpiDM), and petiole length (PetL), and dry matter (PetDM). Results indicated that, although all genotypes exhibited detectable sensitivity to such a stress, cvs. Crioula, Victoria and Alpha-200 were tolerant to 4 mg·L-1 Al3+ toxicity. It was also concluded that Al3+ levels up to the 4 mg·L-1 will be effective for screening tetraploid alfalfa genotypes regarding this type of stress, when evaluations are made in nutrient solution. Finally, RL is the most suitable variable for conducting such evaluations, but all variables related to dry matter in the aerial part are also recommended.
