An understanding of students' use of social networking sites (SNS) for expressive participation in Internet Social Movements (ISMs) is absent in the literature on the social psychology of student social networking behavior. Using the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) as a theoretical framework and survey data collected from 214 students in Spain, we empirically test the UTAUT theory in this context. Our results confirm that effort expectancy, social influence, and performance expectancy significantly affect students' intentions to use SNS for expressive participation in Internet social movements. We also test the moderating effect of students' sex and Technology Readiness (TR) on these UTAUT relationships. Our results show that the intention to use SNS is strongly influenced by effort expectancy for female students and students with self-reported low-levels of technology readiness. For male students and students with self-reportinghigh-levels of technology readiness, the relationship is strongly influenced by social influence. The implications of our findings for theory and practice are discussed. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Different samples of water, indoor air and soil gas have been collected from Islamabad (33°38′N, 73°09′E, altitude of 1760 ft.), the capital of Pakistan and Murree (33°53′N, 73°23′E, altitude of 7323 ft.), lying on a geological fault line and are analysed for the estimation of mean effective dose through radon concentrations by using RAD-7, a solid state α-detector. The variation of radon concentration in water, indoor air and soil gas in Islamabad region ranges from 25.90-158.40 kBq m-3, 43.26-97.04 Bq m-3 and 17.34-72.52 kBq m-3, having mean values 88.63 kBq m-3, 70.67 Bq m-3 and 45.08 kBq m-3 , respectively. It ranges from 1.64-10.20 kBq m-3, 18.48-42.08 Bq m-3 and 0.61-3.89 kBq m-3 with mean values 4.38 kBq m-3, 28.63 Bq m-3 and 1.70 kBq m-3 , respectively in Murree and its surroundings. The total mean annual effective doses from water and indoor air of Islamabad and Murree regions are 2.023 and 0.733 mSv a-1, respectively. These doses are within the recommended limits of the world organisations. © The Author 2010. Published by Oxford University Press. All rights reserved.

The heat transfer analysis on the laminar flow of an incompressible third grade fluid through a porous flat channel is examined. The lower plate is assumed to be at a higher temperature than the upper plate. Analytical solution for temperature distribution is obtained for various values of the controlling parameters and discussed. The obtained analytical solution is also compared with the numerical solution. The comparison shows the fact that the accuracy is remarkable. Copyright © 2009 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

Reviews on Advanced Materials Science | Year: 2011

The use of polymeric materials has become very popular since last thirty years in many applications. The materials in this category can be broadly divided into two categories i.e. thermo set and thermoplastics. With increasing the world's concern about recyclability and environment protection issues thermoplastics have gained more attraction over the thermo set. Thermoplastic elastomers are novel constructional polymers, which are physically cross linked materials made up of a thermoplastic and an elastomer. TPE have been the interest of numerous researchers world wide since last three decades. Thermoplastic elastomers have a very widespread application domain. This paper reviews the history, physical, chemical, mechanical, electrical characteristics, advantages and uses of these materials along with a particular focus on their use as outdoor electrical insulation. Results of using different kinds of thermoplastic materials as outdoor insulation in different environments of world are also reviewed. This review expected to be useful for researchers working on thermoplastic elastomers in general and particularly for those working in filed of electrical insulation. © 2011 Advanced Study Center Co.

Link to system interface methodology is a technique used in system level simulations to predict the receiver behavior using lookup tables under different channel conditions. This paper presents an improvement in link to system interfacing methodology for exponential effective signal to noise ratio mapping for a single input and single output transmission mode. It is proposed that the mean value of the receiver performance measure for different channels be used as reference instead of the performance of a single line of sight link. The results show a considerable improvement in the mean square error between the predicted and observed frame error rates at different signal to noise ratios. © 2014 IEEE.

This paper investigates the peristaltic motion of a magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) non-Newtonian fluid in an inclined asymmetric channel. Constitutive equations obeying the fourth grade fluid model are employed. Mathematical modeling is developed in the presence of a constant inclined magnetic field making an angle with the vertical axis. Assumptions of long wave length and low Reynolds number are used in deriving solution for the flow. Closed form expressions for the stream function and pressure gradient are developed. Pressure rise per wave length and frictional forces on the channel walls have been computed numerically. Effects of Hartman number, Froude number and inclination of magnetic field on the axial velocity, pressure gradient, pumping and trapping are discussed in detail and shown graphically. Several limiting results can be obtained as the special cases of the problem under consideration. © 2010 Taiwan Institute of Chemical Engineers.

Simultaneous effects of heat and mass transfer on flow of third grade fluid between two heated porous sheets is considered. The lower sheet is shrinking in a linear manner. Soret and Dufour effects are considered to analyze the thermo-diffusion and diffusion-thermo effects on the flow. Series solutions for the velocity, temperature and concentration fields are developed. Effects of non-Newtonian fluid parameters, rotation parameter and the constant applied magnetic field on the temperature and concentration profiles are discussed through graphs. Three-dimensional sketches are given for the velocity profiles. © 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

In this work the fundamental problem of peristalsis with heat and mass transfer is investigated in the presence of a chemical reaction. An incompressible viscous fluid is considered in a channel with compliant walls. Mathematical modeling is based upon the laws of mass, linear momentum, energy and concentration. Analysis is presented not only for long wavelength and low Reynolds number but also for small Grashof number. The solutions are carried out for the stream function, temperature, concentration field and heat transfer coefficient. The results of various interesting parameters are plotted and discussed. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
