Hydrogen gas permeation through amorphous and partially crystallized Fe40Ni38Mo4B18
Ribeiro, Rafaella Martins;Lemus, Luis Fernando;Santos, Dilson Silva dos;
Materials Research , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S1516-14392012005000104
Abstract: samples of amorphous and partially crystallized fe40ni38mo4b18 alloy were submitted to hydrogen gas permeation from 523 to 643 k. the hydrogen permeation curves exhibited a single sigmoidal shape, typical of tests where no hydride formation occurs. it was observed that the hydrogen diffusivity increases for the amorphous samples and partially crystallized alloy with the temperature increase. the hydrogen diffusion coefficient as a function of temperature was found to be d = 5.1 ± 0.5 × 10-12 exp (-11.0 ± 3.5/rt) (m2.s-1) for amorphous condition and d = 3.6 ± 0.5 × 10-11 exp (-19.8 ± 3.3/rt) (m2.s-1) for the partially crystallized condition. this suggests that the annihilation of defects in the amorphous structure and the crystalline phase precipitate contributes to the increase of the hydrogen diffusion.

Abstract: Short stature is a clinical challenge in the daily practice of pediatric endocrinology, regarding the several technical, cultural and economic factors associated with its approach. This article intends to review the physiology of growth hormone secretion, the endocrine regulation of human growth and the clinical aspects of the diagnosis and treatment of short stature. It specifically analyses the treatment of short stature with growth hormone, along with its side effects, cost/benefit analysis and possible risks. A clinical case from a medical school is also described, intending a better understanding of this frequent ambulatory situation in endocrinology and pediatrics.

Abstract: a 7.4 mm thick strip of 3003 aluminum alloy produced by the industrial twin-roll casting (trc) process was homogenized at 500 °c for 12 hours, after which it was cold rolled in two conditions: 1) to reduce the strip's thickness by 67%, and 2) to reduce it by 91%. the alloy was annealed at 400 °c for 1 hour in both conditions. the results revealed that a rotated cube texture, the {001}<110> component, predominated in the as-cast condition and was transformed into brass, copper and s type textures during the cold rolling process. there was practically no difference between the deformation textures at the two thickness reductions.

Abstract: objective: to compare myocardial contrast echocardiography (mce) using pesda and adenosine in bolus (adn) with myocardial nuclear scintigraphy (ns) in patients (pts) undergoing routine investigation with a high probability of having coronary artery disease. methods: this study comprised 125 pts (85 men) with 58.4 ± 10.6 years, who underwent mce and ns within 4 weeks. mce was performed with pesda in a continuous infusion at rest and after administration of an adenosine bolus. the lv walls was divided into 3 territories related to the coronary arteries, in a total of 375 territories. mce was normal when an increase in contrast intensity occurred after adn. the reduction in contrast intensity at rest or after adn was defined as an abnormal mce result. ns was performed according to classical protocols. when compared per patient, both examinations were considered concordant when they were normal or abnormal, independent of its location. the comparison by territory was considered concordant when perfusion defects existed or not in the same territory. the chi-square test was used to determine the significance of concordance. results: in 106/125 pts, mce and ns were concordant (84.8% - p < 0.001). concordance occurred in 342/375 territories (91.2% - p < 0.001). for the lad territory, concordance was 87.2%; for the rca, 93.6%; and for the cx, 92.8% (p < 0.001). conclusion: an excellent concordance exists between mce and ns in assessing pts for coronary artery disease; therefore, mce may represent a good alternative for assessing myocardial perfusion.

Abstract: One important tool for producing specifi c and individualized training intensities is to determine ventilatory threshold (VT), respiratory compensation point (RCP) and maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) by means of maximum effort testing. However, in order to be able to interpret these data in a wide-ranging manner, it is also important to understand the metabolic responses that occur during the test as the systems transporting and utilizing O2 and producing CO2 adjust. This review article presents an overview of the metabolic responses that take place during a hypothetical maximum effort test, and the applicability of the fi gures thus obtained to the training of athletes. ABSTRACT A determina o das velocidades atingidas no limiar ventilatório (LV), ponto de compensa o respiratório (PCR) e consumo máximo de O2 (VO2max) através de um teste de esfor o máximo, é uma ferramenta importante para a aplica o de intensidades de treinamento específicas e individualizadas. Mas para poder interpretar os dados de uma forma abrangente, também é importante o entendimento das respostas metabólicas presentes no ajuste dos sistemas de transporte e utiliza o de O2 e produ o de CO2 durante a realiza o do teste. Esta revis o apresenta um panorama das respostas metabólicas que acontecem durante a realiza o de um teste de esfor o máximo hipotético, e a aplicabilidade dos valores obtidos no treinamento de atletas.
