A Mixed Convection Boundary Layer Flow over a Vertical Wall in a Porous Medium, with Exponentially Varying Fluid Viscosity  [PDF]
Eunice Mureithi
Journal of Applied Mathematics and Physics (JAMP) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jamp.2014.28087

This study investigates a mixed convection boundary layer flow over a vertical wall embedded in a highly porous medium. The fluid viscosity is assumed to decrease exponentially with temperature. The boundary layer equations are transformed into a non-similar form using an appropriate non-similar variable ξ and a pseudo-similar variable η. The non-similar equations are solved using an efficient local non-similarity method. The effect of viscosity variation parameter on the heat transfer, skin friction and the velocity and temperature distribution within the boundary layer is investigated. The viscosity variation parameter, the viscous dissipation parameter and non-simi-larity variable are shown to have a significant effect on velocity and thermal boundary layer and also on the skin friction coefficient and heat transfer at the wall.

Sampling of An.gambiae s.s mosquitoes using Limburger cheese, heat and moisture as baits in a homemade trap

Abstract: Tests on the efficacy of the developed trap to sample An. gambiae s.s, mosquitoes using Limburger cheese, moisture and heat as baits were carried out in a screen house measuring 11.4 × 7.1 × 2.8 m. The studies were done in three phases. In the first phase the efficacy of the trap to sample An. gambiae s.s. using odour and moisture was tested. The second phase was to test the efficacy of the trap to sample An. gambiae s.s. using Limburger cheese and heat. In the third phase a combination of Limburger cheese, moisture and heat was tested. Tests were carried out for 27 consecutive nights.The designed trap collected a total of 59 An. gambiae s.s. in three trials. The trap baited with Limburger cheese and moisture collected 7 An. gambiae s.s in 7 days. The mean catch per day was 1. The trap baited with Limburger cheese and heat collected zero An. gambiae s.s in 11 days. The mean catch per day was therefore 0. The trap baited with Limburger cheese, moisture and heat collected 52 mosquitoes in 27 days and the mean catch was 1.93.This study indicates that a non-electric fan driven trap baited with a combination of Limburger cheese, heat and moisture has a potential as an effective sampling tool for the malaria vector, Anopheles gambiae s.s. However, further optimization studies would be necessary.Ample evidence has shown that odour baited traps are likely [1-3] to provide an objective monitoring tool for the host-seeking fraction of mosquito vectors of diseases like malaria and bancroftian filariasis. Such traps could eventually become part of primary healthcare systems used to study the vector biology and epidemiology of mosquito-borne diseases, knowledge of which is vital for planning and assessing outcome of intervention strategies. One might even foresee the development of odour baited mosquito traps [1,2] that might be used to reduce the vector population in a village or in an individual's bedroom to divert mosquitoes away from occupants. Such traps could then be used
Soberania e representa??o: Hobbes, parlamentaristas e levellers
Ostrensky, Eunice;
Lua Nova: Revista de Cultura e Política , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-64452010000200007
Abstract: the article intends to show that thomas hobbes (1588-1679) adopted the concept of political authorization as means to fight against the doctrine of the accountability of political actors ahead of the persons they represented. among these opponents, the levellers have a prominent place, by proposing, in the late 1640s, an innovative solution for the constitutional problem of the illegitimacy of the english parliament: extension of the franchise followed by a celebration of an agreement of the people.
Dez anos de blairismo
Rela??es Internacionais (R:I) , 2008,
Abstract: tony blair transformed radically the united kingdom in different policy areas. however, the changes brought by blair between 1997 and 2007 represent a deviation from socialdemocratic values. this argument will be demonstrated with an analysis of new labour?s economic, social, constitutional foreign policies.
As várias faces de um ator político
Revista latinoamericana de filosof?-a , 2011,
Abstract: this article aims at showing that the political science of james harrington (1611-1677) was intended to create a complex republican model as a remedy to the constitutional crisis in england during the 1650's. but, before presenting his model of republic to his contemporaries, harrington thought it was necessary to investigate why sovereign power collapsed in 1640. his starting point was rather empirical than speculative or abstract. despite the decisive part played in harrington's political science by foundations or material relations based on freehold property, human agency was also considered altogether necessary to produce a perfect political order.
O método etnográfico em pesquisas na área da saúde: uma reflex?o antropológica
Nakamura, Eunice;
Saúde e Sociedade , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-12902011000100012
Abstract: the article aims to reflect on the possible theoretical and methodological contributions of social science research in health, given the increasing incorporation of qualitative methodologies, particularly ethnography, this research. the starting point for this discussion are three theoretical and conceptual keys to the consolidation of the ethnographic method in its origin, in conjunction with the very assertion of anthropological science, assuming that by understanding what is the ethnographic practice, we also understand the importance of the anthropological explanation of the different socio-cultural phenomena, among them health, illness and strategies for treatment or cure. these assumptions - ethnocentrism, relativism and culture - marked so the research and production of anthropological knowledge, theory and method that have become inseparable. thinking of repetition and constant replenishment of inseparability in a dialectical movement of concrete experience with learned theories can be a major strength of the social sciences, particularly anthropology, for research in health. the absence of this reflection seems to risk the compromise that can interface with the theoretical and methodological rigor in the production and dissemination of scientific knowledge, the reduction and simplification of the technique. on the other hand, this same inseparability leads us to inquire about possible contributions of the incorporation of ethnographic method in research in the health of anthropological knowledge.

Dez anos de blairismo Ten years of Blairism

Abstract: O ex-primeiro-ministro britanico, Tony Blair, teve um impacto profundo no Reino Unido. Ao fim de 10 anos à frente do Governo, Blair deixou a sua marca no país aos níveis económico, social, constitucional e diplomático. A análise das principais linhas de for a dos governos New Labour entre 1997 e 2007 mostra que a era Blair representa o abandono dos valores social-democratas tradicionalmente defendidos pelo Partido Trabalhista. Tony Blair transformed radically the United Kingdom in different policy areas. However, the changes brought by Blair between 1997 and 2007 represent a deviation from socialdemocratic values. This argument will be demonstrated with an analysis of New Labour’s economic, social, constitutional foreign policies.
