CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BeAM Machines SAS, the leading European based specialists in providing DED (Directed Energy Deposition) solutions, opened its U.S. subsidiary, BeAM Machines, Inc. January 2017 in Cincinnati, Ohio. The company will begin taking pre-orders for the revolutionary Modulo 5-axis DED (Directed Energy Deposition) machine at this year’s Rapid + TCT event (Booth #1937) May 8-11 in Pittsburgh. According to Tim Bell, General Manager of BeAM Machines, Inc., “The Modulo is truly a unique industrial DED solution for additive manufacturing, largely due to its integrated peripherals. Typical DED systems place the required secondary equipment (laser, chiller, fume extractor, etc.) outside the machine envelope, which requires a considerable amount of floor space in addition to the machine. The BeAM Modulo fully integrates all required peripherals into the machine cabinet, significantly reducing the total required floor space.” https://app.box.com/s/ncvmobaege7706ymx7ky4uwsx3izhu2k One of the largest, industry-specific impacts the Modulo provides is the machine’s overall portability. Says Bell, “Due to the machine’s portability and compact footprint, it easily fits inside a shipping container or traditional box truck, enabling ease of transportation and operation in remote locations such as offshore oil rigs and military conflict zones.” The Modulo is offered with BeAM Machine’s standard suite of options including a 2kW fiber laser, fully controlled inert atmosphere system, multiple deposition heads, touch trigger probe, and a light duty milling spindle for dry machining. BeAM concludes, “Once the machine is set up and in its intended position, all that is required is an electrical connection, a supply of inert gas and along with a staff of world-class AM technicians that we are more than happy to train.” BeAM Machines, Inc., provides additive manufacturing solutions to the world’s industry leaders including the aeronautic, aerospace, defense, nuclear, oil and gas sectors, and is proud to be involved in programs that are advancing our world like never before.

Side-to-side intestinal anastomosis is a surgical procedure where an incision is performed between two parallel segments of gut and then they are sutured together. The purpose of this paper is to investigate if the standard surgical practice diameter used in anastomosis leads to undesirable closed circulatory flows which may be harmful to the gut tissue. A finite element model for the chyme flow in a side by side anastomosis with realistic user configurable parameters is developed and solved in a wide range of situations. We analyze the flow crossing the anastomosis, the normalized pressure difference in the gut section and the streamlines that show the presence or absence of closed flow regions for a set of surgically feasible anastomosis diameter values. In contrast with the findings of simpler analytical models, closed flows do not appear in any of these cases. The study shows that the current standard surgical practice where the anastomosis diameter is similar to the gut diameter does not lead to undesirable effects predicted by some simple analytical models. © 2017, Korean Society of Medical and Biological Engineering and Springer.

We present a theoretical study of the adsorption of benzene C6H6 on the Cu(100) metal surface. The insulating effect of ionic films on this system has also been investigated by adsorbing C6H6 on the same surface covered with 1, 2, and 3 monolayers of NaCl. For this purpose, we employed density functional theory (DFT) including the van der Waals dispersion forces via a DFT-D2 scheme. For all the studied systems we analyzed the adsorption energies and geometries as well as the density of states in order to get a complete description of the type of binding, the charge transfer between the molecule and the surface, and the electronic level alignment after adsorption. We show that the molecule-substrate interaction is weak and mainly governed by dispersion forces, with an almost insignificant charge transfer between the substrate and the adsorbate. We found a progressive decoupling of the molecule from the metal surface when the size of the ultrathin insulating NaCl film increases. © 2015 American Chemical Society.

Crystalline Si solar cells as mounted in photovoltaic modules are historically encapsulated using ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) to provide mechanical support, protection against environmental exposure and electrical isolation. Nevertheless, new requirements in the final photovoltaic grid connection cannot successfully be reach by using this polymer current chemical composition. This phenomenon is known as the potential induced degradation (PID). Photovoltaic encapsulant industry has developed innovative materials to overcome this potential aging. One of these new materials is a thermoplastic commonly named as polyolefin. Photovoltaic modules using this encapsulation material have been fabricated in an industrial line and they have been subjected to PID tests. Our results demonstrate that polyolefin can successfully overcome PID test. Therefore it can be considered as a suitable EVA substitutive. © 2015 Elsevier B.V.All rights reserved.

The current legislation requires the mandatory addition of biodiesel to all Brazilian road diesel oil A (pure diesel) marketed in the country and bans the addition of vegetable oils for this type of diesel. However, cases of irregular addition of vegetable oils directly to the diesel oil may occur, mainly due to the lower cost of these raw materials compared to the final product, biodiesel. In Brazil, the situation is even more critical once the country is one of the largest producers of oleaginous products in the world, especially soybean, and also it has an extensive road network dependent on diesel. Therefore, alternatives to control the quality of diesel have become increasingly necessary. This study proposes an analytical methodology for quality control of diesel with intention to identify and determine adulterations of oils and even fats of vegetable origin. This methodology is based on detection, identification and quantification of triacylglycerols on diesel (main constituents of vegetable oils and fats) by high performance liquid chromatography in reversed phase with UV detection at 205. nm associated with multivariate methods. Six different types of oils and fats were studied (soybean, frying oil, corn, cotton, palm oil and babassu) and two methods were developed for data analysis. The first one, based on principal component analysis (PCA), nearest neighbor classification (KNN) and univariate regression, was used for samples adulterated with a single type of oil or fat. In the second method, partial least square regression (PLS) was used for the cases where the adulterants were mixtures of up to three types of oils or fats. In the first method, the techniques of PCA and KNN were correctly classified as 17 out of 18 validation samples on the type of oil or fat present. The concentrations estimated for adulterants showed good agreement with the reference values, with mean errors of prediction (RMSEP) ranging between 0.10 and 0.22% (v/v). The PLS method was efficient in the quantification of mixtures of up to three types of oils and fats, with RMSEP being obtained between 0.08 and 0.27% (v/v), mean precision between 0.07 and 0.32% (v/v) and minimum detectable concentration between 0.23 and 0.81% (v/v) depending on the type of oil or fat in the mixture determined. © 2012 Elsevier B.V..

Fatigue is one of the most common causes of damage in bituminous pavements. However, since fatigue characterization requires complex cyclic tests, this property is not usually taken into account when designing bituminous mixtures. The present study introduces a new methodology to assess fatigue behavior of bituminous mixtures by means of a simpler procedure based on a new fracture test called Fénix. Several bituminous mixtures were tested at the Road Research Laboratory of the Technical University of Catalonia using the Fénix test and the three-point bending beam fatigue test, which complies with the new European standard UNE-EN 12697-24:2006. Results show that this new methodology assesses fatigue behavior of bituminous mixes by correlations between both tests. In addition, the procedure can be used to relate stiffness and dissipated energy parameters obtained in the cracking process, which allows the choice of mixtures with better fatigue performance considering the thermal conditions to which mixtures will be subjected during their service life. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

In this article, the results of the study of the matrix effect in the determination of metals calcium, chromium, iron, nickel, copper, zinc, molybdenum, cadmium, barium and lead in base oil using Energy Dispersive X-Ray Fluorescence (EDX) are presented. Sensitivities obtained for each calibration curve were evaluated where calcium, chromium, copper, cadmium, barium and lead had the lowest sensitivities. In the case of cadmium, this parameter was lagging and the studies were not carried forward. The curves of the other metals in different base oils were evaluated for linearity. The elements chromium, copper, molybdenum and lead showed linearity problems in some cases. Therefore, curves in different base oils showed distinct mathematical behavior where the matrix effect was confirmed. The other curves were evaluated and existence of the matrix effect attributed to interference of C/H ratio was confirmed in the quantification of all elements. Metals iron, nickel and zinc exhibited the highest sensitivity and determination coefficients, showing that the method has application potential. © 2015, Sociedade Brasileira de Quimica.
