The combustion of hydrogen-diesel blend fuel was investigated under simulated direct injection (DI) diesel engine conditions. The investigation presented in this paper concerns numerical analysis of neat diesel combustion mode and hydrogen enriched diesel combustion in a compression ignition (CI) engine. The parameters varied in this simulation included: H2/diesel blend fuel ratio, engine speed, and air/fuel ratio. The study on the simultaneous combustion of hydrogen and diesel fuel was conducted with various hydrogen doses in the range from 0.05% to 50% (by volume) for different engine speed from 1000 - 4000 rpm and air/fuel ratios (A/F) varies from 10 - 80. The results show that, applying hydrogen as an extra fuel, which can be added to diesel fuel in the (CI) engine results in improved engine performance and reduce emissions compared to the case of neat diesel operation because this measure approaches the combustion process to constant volume. Moreover, small amounts of hydrogen when added to a diesel engine shorten the diesel ignition lag and, in this way, decrease the rate of pressure rise which provides better conditions for soft run of the engine. Comparative results are given for various hydrogen/diesel ratio, engine speeds and loads for conventional Diesel and dual fuel operation, revealing the effect of dual fuel combustion on engine performance and exhaust emissions. © 2013, Hydrogen Energy Publications, LLC.

The eating quality of meat is a result of complex interactions between the biological traits and biochemical processes during the conversion of muscle to meat. It was hypothesised that muscles inevitably engage towards apoptotic cell death due to the termination of oxygen and nutrient supply to the muscle following exsanguination. Thus, factors that regulate the process of apoptotic cell death of muscle cells are believed to ultimately influence meat quality. Proteomic studies have associated the regulation of small heat shock proteins (sHSPs) with various meat quality attributes including tenderness, colour, juiciness and flavour. Due to the anti-apoptotic and chaperone functions of sHSPs, they are proposed to be involved with the eating quality of meat. In this review, we discuss the possible chaperone and anti-apoptotic role of sHSPs during the conversion of muscle to meat and consider the repercussions of this on the development of meat tenderness. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

Diagnosis the Computed Tomography Images (CT-Images) may take a lot of time by the radiologist. This will increase the radiologist fatigue and may miss some of the cancerous lung nodule lesions. Therefore, an adaptive local enhancement Computer Aided Diagnosis (CAD) system is proposed. The proposed technique is design to enhance the suspicious cancerous regions in the CT-Images. The visual characteristics of the cancerous lung nodules in the CT-Images was the main criteria in designing this technique. The new approach is divided into two phases, pre-processing phase and image enhancement phase. The image noise reduction, thresholding process, and extraction the lung regions are considered as a pre-processing phase. Whereas, the new adaptive local enhancement method for the CTImages were implemented as a second phase. The proposed algorithm is tested and evaluated on 42 normal and cancerous lung nodule CT-Images. As a result, this new approach can efficiently enhance the cancerous lung nodules by 25% comparing with the original images.

Magnesium and its alloys are the lightest constructional available materials on earth with a maximum density of 1.78 g /cc and melting point of 650 ?C, with good damping characteristics. Therefore; they are alloyed or micro alloyed with other elements. In this paper comparison between the addition of Ti and Ti+ B to this alloy on its grain size and its mechanical characteristics is investigated both in the cast and after direct extrusion and the obtained results are presented and discussed. © 2016 Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

The high frequency of advanced digital signal processing and data analysis in wide range of everyday data computing applications has propagated the uses of Analog to Digital Converters. However, such a converter can be very crucial and critical for some applications. Especially with the use of sensitive equipment's, errors or deviations from original signal could lead to catastrophic results. Therefore, testing output signal for dynamic parameters can always define the performance of the converters. In this research, the dynamic range parameters of Spurious-Free Dynamic Range will be tested using FFT testing application process based on Wavelet decomposition algorithms. This new proposes testing technique will utilize Wavelet special characteristic of decomposition feature, reduce compiling sample data, and expedite testing process. The new propose testing technique will be compared with conventional method of FFT application in term of accuracy, variance, and number of collect and computed samples. © Research India Publications.
