Aspects of fabrication and characterization of electro-thermal micro-actuators
Godoy, Paulo Henrique de;Silva, Emílio Carlos Nelli;
Journal of the Brazilian Society of Mechanical Sciences and Engineering , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S1678-58782007000100005
Abstract: this study examines the behavior of well known simple thermal micro-actuators. this work describes some unexplored aspects of the employed methodology to produce these electro-thermal micro-actuators (etms). these information could be time saving for new groups to start research and development on electro-thermal actuators. the focus of the applied methodology is the use of the finite element method (fem) applied to an iterative procedure to predict the behavior of the micro-actuators before production. the computational model is adjusted based on measurements of force and displacement. to be correctly applied, this methodology requires a sensitivity study of the material properties. the results emphasize the need to use fem with more accurate thermal and mechanical properties, and to consider also the variation of these properties with temperature. we must also consider a careful definition of thermal boundary conditions and the effects of heat convection and radiation, due to deviations between experimental results and fe results. in this investigation, the structural material applied was nickel, plated at about 1 μm/min. the experimental characterization was carried out in a micro probe station with a ccd (charge-coupled device) camera attached to it, and used a controlled voltage source.

Abstract: OBJETIVO: Estimar a letalidade nos procedimentos de doen as isquêmicas do cora o (DIC) aguda e cr nica e por revasculariza o miocárdica (RVM) e angioplastia coronariana (AC) nos hospitais cadastrados no SIH/SUS (Sistema de Informa es Hospitalares/Sistema único de Saúde) no Estado do Rio de Janeiro (ERJ), de 1999 a 2003. MéTODOS: Os procedimentos considerados de RVM e de AC provieram do Datasus. As taxas foram padronizadas por sexo, idade e gravidade de doen a, tendo como padr o todos os procedimentos de alta complexidade cardiovascular, realizados no ERJ em 2000. Os grupos de DIC s o: angina, infarto agudo do miocárdio, outras DIC agudas e DIC cr nicas. RESULTADOS: As letalidades por angina, IAM, outras DIC agudas e DIC cr nicas foram de 2,8%, 16,2%, 2,9% e 3,9%, respectivamente, no ERJ. As taxas de letalidade, ajustadas por idade, sexo e grupo diagnóstico, nas RVM e AC foram elevadas, variando entre 1,9% e 12,8% nas RVM, e atingindo 3,2% nas AC, e de 2,3% e 11,1%, quando o tratamento clínico era realizado. CONCLUS O: As RVM e AC no tratamento das DIC no ERJ vêm aumentando progressivamente. A letalidade esteve acima do desejável, principalmente nas interna es por DIC cr nicas (5,4% e 1,7%, respectivamente). O tratamento clínico otimizado parece boa op o terapêutica, reservando-se as RVM e AC para os casos de pior prognóstico. A letalidade no IAM com tratamento clínico foi semelhante à existente quando n o se utilizam trombolíticos (16,7%).

Revista Brasileira de Zootecnia , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S1516-35982012000600011
Abstract: the objective of this study was to evaluate the chemical composition, fermentation patterns and aerobic stability of sugarcane silages with addition of amino acid production (monosodium glutamate) by-product (apb) and microbial inoculants. mature sugarcane was chopped and ensiled in laboratory silos (n = 4/treatment) without additives (control) and with apb (10 g/kg), pioneer 1174? (pio, 1.0 mg/kg, lactobacillus plantarum + streptoccoccus faecium, pioneer), lalsil cana (2.0 mg/kg, lactobacillus buchineri, lallemand) or mercosil maís 11c33? (1.0 mg/kg, lactobacillus buchineri + lactobacillus plantarum + streptoccoccus faecium, timac agro). fresh silage and silage liquor samples were obtained to assess ph, chemical composition and organic acid concentrations. silage temperature was recorded throughout seven days to evaluate aerobic stability. the addition of apb decreased lactic acid levels, increased ph and n-nh3 and did not alter ethanol, acetic and butyric acids concentrations or dry matter (dm) losses. microbial inoculants enhanced acetic acid levels, although only pioneer 1174? and mercosil maís 11c33? lowered ethanol, butyric acid and dm losses. the addition of apb increased cp content and did not modify dm, soluble carbohydrates contents or in vitro dry matter digestibility. additives did not alter silage maximum temperature or temperature increasing rate; however, pioneer 1174? and mercosil maís 11c33? increased the time elapsed to reach maximum temperature. monosodium glutamate production by-product does not alter fermentation patterns or aerobic stability of sugarcane silages, whereas homofermentative bacteria can provide silages of good quality.
Evaluation of the Acoustic Environment in a Protestant Church Based on Measurements of Acoustic Descriptors  [PDF]
Samuel Ansay, Paulo Henrique Trombetta Zannin
Journal of Building Construction and Planning Research (JBCPR) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jbcpr.2016.43011
Abstract: The new guidelines of the Catholic Church are in line with the guidelines adopted by Protestant churches since the Reformation, unifying appreciation for the liturgical practices of preaching and congregational singing. These guidelines require that the room, in this case the church, provides appropriate acoustic characteristics, which can be characterized by acoustic descriptors such as Reverberation Time (RT), Clarity (C80) and Definition (D50). In this article, we analyzed the acoustic quality of a protestant church whose design tried to follow these guidelines. Our findings revealed the poor quality of the acoustic environment in terms of both speech intelligibility and music. These findings emphasized the need to adopt not only Reverberation Time but also other acoustic descriptors such as Clarity and Definition in church design.
