Objectives: To understand the perception and responses among college students to a strict campus smoking policy which was in accordance with a national law requiring complete prohibition indoors and permission to smoke in designated outdoor smoking areas only. Methods: This study was conducted in the third to sixth month after the implementation of the revised Tobacco Hazard Prevention Act in Taiwan. In-depth interviews were conducted with 22 smokers who were second and third year students of a college in Taiwan. Thematic analysis was used to categorize ideas into concept themes. Results: In interviews, most smokers revealed some modification in their smoking behavior and attitude: they sensed that smoking was unwelcome, reduced smoking in campus, thought about quitting, and tried to avoid exposing roommates in the dormitory. The reasons cited by the students for behavior change were grouped into four major themes: a changed smoking experience, change in social norm, the respect for law, and concern for others' health. Conclusions: Implementation of a strict smoking policy in college prompted smokers to markedly reduce smoking in campus. © 2011 Swiss School of Public Health.


Energy conversion for conjugate conduction, convection and radiation analysis have been performed for free convection heat transfer with radiation effect of a steady laminar boundary-layer flow that pass a non-linearly flow field over extrusion stretching sheet by two kinds of boundary-layer conditions. The well-known Boussinesq approximation has been used to represent the buoyancy term adding to the governing equation. All of the important parameters m, Nr, Pr, G, Bi are represented the dominance of the non-linearly effect, radiation effect, free convection effect and conduction-convection effect which have been presented in governing equations, respectively. The similarity transformation and the finite-difference method have been used to analyze the present problem. The results were shown that the free convection effect will be produced a larger heat transfer effect better than the forced convection. On heat conduction processing, the convection-conduction number Ncc or free convection parameter G will be provided a good effect with a larger value. The results are shown by graphics, so that it is a physical multimedia technique features study also. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.


Three-dimensional (3D) product design is an essential ability that students of subjects related to product design must acquire. The factors that affect designers’ performance in 3D design are numerous, one of which is spatial abilities. Studies have reported that spatial abilities can be used to effectively predict people’s performance in conducting complex operations. Nevertheless, few studies have explored the relationship between spatial abilities and designers’ performance in 3D product design. Spatial ability is a type of mental ability and comprises numerous factors. Carton box design is a typical type of standardized 3D product design, in which designers’ performance is affected by the spatial abilities they possess. The most crucial factor among these abilities is the space conversion ability, which is the ability to convert two-dimensional (2D) surface developments into 3D perspective views and convert 3D carton boxes into 2D plans. These operations require an in-depth perception of objects, an understanding of the relative spatial relations among objects, and spatial visualization. In this study, carton box design was used as an example to investigate, using structural equation modeling, the effects that the ability to understand spatial relations, spatial orientation, and spatial visualization have on designers’ performance in 3D product design. The results indicated that all three spatial abilities (i.e., understanding spatial relations, spatial orientation, and spatial visualization) directly influence designers’ performance in carton box design. Therefore, spatial abilities are vital factors affecting designers’ performance in 3D product design. © 2015 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht

An incompressible steady two-dimensional forced convection with magnetic hydrodynamic (MHD) second-grade non-Newtonian (Viscoelastic) fluid flow on a stagnation point of a thermal forming stretching sheet has been studied. A parameter M which is used to represent the dominance of the magnetic effect has been presented in governing equations. The similar transformation, the perturbation expansion and an implicit finite-difference method have been used to analyse the present problem. The numerical solutions of the flow velocity distributions, temperature profiles, the wall unknown values of f″(0) and θ'(0) for calculating the heat transfer of the similar boundary-layer flow are carried out as functions of the viscoelastic number k, the Prandtl number Pr, the dissipation parameter E and the magnetic parameter M. The effects of these parameters have also discussed. The value of k is an important factor in this study. It will produce greater heat transfer effect with a larger k or Pr and parameters M or E will reduce heat transfer effect. The non-Newtonian flow heat transfer effect is better than a Newtonian flow heat transfer effect. © 2011 Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering.

In this study, the stagnation nano energy conversion problems have been completed for conjugate mixed convection heat and mass transfer with electrical magneto hydrodynamic (EMHD) and heat source/sink effects nanofluid flow field over a slip boundary stretching sheet surface. The physical phenomena varied which depended on different factors. All of the important nano energy conversion parameters S0, M, E, Gt, Gc, λ, Pr, Sc, Ncc, S and δ have represented the dominance of the magnetic energy effect, electric effect, mixed convection effect, heat generation/absorption energy effect, heat transfer effect, mass diffusion effect, heat conduction-convection effect and slip boundary effects, respectively. The similarity transformation and a modified Finite-Difference method are used to analyze the present nano energy conversion system's thermal energy conversion problem. The non-linear ordinary equations of the corresponding flow field momentum, temperature, concentration equations and plate sheet heat conduction equation are derived by employing the similarity transformation technology. The dimensionless non-linear ordinary equations are composed of momentum, temperature, concentration and plate sheet heat conduction equations which have been solved numerically by an improved finite difference technique. © 2015 The Author.

This work determines the time-varying impulsive loads, called inputs, in a nonlinear system using two novel input estimation inverse algorithms. Both algorithms use the extended Kalman filter with two different recursive estimators to determine impulsive loads. The extended Kalman filter generates the residual innovation sequences. The estimators use the residual innovation sequences to evaluate the magnitudes and, therefore, the onset time histories of the impulsive loads. Based on the two regression equations, a recursive least-squares estimator with a tunable fading factor is called a conventional input estimation with an adaptive weighting fading factor called an adaptive weighting input estimation. Both are used to estimate on-line inputs involving measurement noise and modeling errors. Numerical simulations of a nonlinear system, Duffing's equation, demonstrate the accuracy of the proposed methods. Simulation results show that the proposed methods accurately estimate impulsive loads, and the AWIE approach has superior robust estimation capability than the CIE method in the nonlinear system. © 2012 American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

In this study, energy conversion problems of conjugate conduction, convection and radiation heat and mass transfer with viscous dissipation and magnetic effects have been investigated. Governing equations including continuity equation, momentum equation, energy equation and heat conduction equation for nanofluid flow have been analyzed by a combination of similarity transformation and finite-difference method. For heat convection energy conversion aspect, some importance parameters applied to the system, such as buoyancy parameters Gt and Gc, radiative energy parameter k0, boundary proportional parameter Ab and Prandtl number Pr which can be produced positive effects for larger values of those parameters. For mass transfer energy conversion aspect, it has been obtained a larger effect with a larger value of Sc. For heat conduction aspect, it depends on the conduction-convection parameter Ncc, a larger Ncc number can be produced a larger heat conduction effect. The study work considers multimedia effects, so that it is also one kind of multimedia physical features study. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

A heat transfer for steady two-dimensional forced convection with magnetic hydrodynamic flow (MHD) with radiative effect of an incompressible fluid over an unsteady thermal forming stretching sheet has been studied. The parameters M and R which are used to represent the dominance of the magnetic effect and radiative effect have been presented in governing equations. The similar transformation and an implicit finite-difference method have been used to analyze the present problem. The numerical solutions of the flow velocity distributions, temperature profiles, the wall unknown values of f′(0) and θ '(0) for calculating the heat transfer of the similar boundary-layer flow are carried out as functions of the unsteadiness parameter (S), the Prandtl number (Pr), the radiative parameter (R) and the magnetic parameter (M). The effects of these parameters have also discussed. At the results, it will produce greater heat transfer effect with a larger Pr, R and S but a larger M will reduce momentum and heat transfer effects. © 2011 IEEE.

A manufacturing enterprise promotes into the lean system is an important global perspective goal in recent years; Median/small-sized manufacturing enterprises in Taiwan are always in pursuit of their international competition capability. Today, the total preventive maintenance (TPM) technique has been highlighted by all the manufacturing enterprises in Taiwan. However, the required expensive cost and more resource for TPM implementation cause this technique can only apply to most of the larger size enterprises in Taiwan. This study intends to explore TPM technique to fit the median/small-sized enterprises in Taiwan. The model developed is by using a survey on some median/small-sized enterprises they are currently applying the TPM technique within the Madou, Guantian, and Jiali Industrial District in Tainan City, the south area of Taiwan. The designed questionnaires survey as a concluded model for the median/small-sized enterprise are selected from eight types of traditional industries to understand their recognition of TPM new concept and technique, their acceptance or difficulty in promoting TPM experiences, and also their perspectives of TPM implementation. It is expected that the developed TPM model would be a useful reference for median/small-sized enterprises to implement TPM technique and reduce both the expense and resource in the future. © 2012 IEEE.
