Relationship between Organic Carbon and Opportunistic Pathogens in Simulated Glass Water Heaters
Controlling organic carbon levels in municipal water has been hypothesized to limit downstream growth of bacteria and opportunistic pathogens in premise plumbing (OPPPs). Here, the relationships between influent organic ...
Numerical Simulations of Two-Phase Flow in a Self-Aerated Flotation Machine and Kinetics Modeling
A new boundary condition treatment has been devised for two-phase flow numerical simulations in a self-aerated minerals flotation machine and applied to a Wemco 0.8 m<sup>3</sup> pilot cell. Airflow rate is not specified ...
Application of sub-micrometer vibrations to mitigate bacterial adhesion.
As a prominent concern regarding implantable devices, eliminating the threat of opportunistic bacterial infection represents a significant benefit to both patient health and device function. Current treatment options focus ...
Flag Football Headgear STAR Protocol
This document details the protocol used to rate flag football headgear based on concussion risk according to the Virginia Tech Helmet Ratings.
GPU-Based Acceleration for Interior Tomography
The compressive sensing (CS) theory shows that real signals can be exactly recovered from very few samplings. Inspired by the CS theory, the interior problem in computed tomography is proved uniquely solvable by minimizing ...
pH-Triggered Molecular Alignment for Reproducible SERS Detection via an AuNP/Nanocellulose Platform
The low affinity of neutral and hydrophobic molecules towards noble metal surfaces hinders their detection by surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS). Herein, we present a method to enhance gold nanoparticle (AuNP) ...
Mitigating the Impact of Renewable Variability With Demand-Side Resources Considering Communication and Cyber Security Limitations
With the rapid development of smart grid, the penetration of renewable energy resources is higher than ever and keeps growing. However, the output of renewable energy units, such as solar photovoltaics and wind turbines, ...
Inhibition of Copper Pitting Corrosion in Aggressive Potable Waters
Copper pitting corrosion can lead to premature plumbing failures, and can be caused by aggressive potable waters characterized by high pH, free chlorine residual and low alkalinity. In such waters and under continuous flow, ...
BMRF-MI: integrative identification of protein interaction network by modeling the gene dependency
Background Identification of protein interaction network is a very important step for understanding the molecular mechanisms in cancer. Several methods have been developed to integrate protein-protein interaction (PPI) ...
Measuring the Insecurity of Mobile Deep Links of Android
Mobile deep links are URIs that point to specific locations within apps, which are instrumental to web-to-app communications. Existing “scheme URLs” are known to have hijacking vulnerabilities where one app can freely ...
