In the following, we will first provide an overview of the MedeA software environment before we explain the software functionalities and features that were added to achieve the

Temperature Drift Compensation of Eddy Current Sensor under High Temperature Environment

measurement, thickness measurement, eddy current testing(ET) and so on. However, eddy current sensors are very susceptible to temperature changes,especially in high temperature environment. The measurement ... error, which can’t be ignored in the high temperature area, makes the use of the eddy current sensor be limited in the high temperature environment. Analysis shows that temperature affects almost all the

Nanomaterials in the environment

These procedures helped the researchers to answer the research question: How can technological resources available in a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) help students to interact and ... in their interaction and collaboration in solving problems they face daily, by elaborating modelling projects through the use of technological resources available in this environment. By developing

Urbanization, environment and pharmaceuticals: advancing comparative physiology, pharmacology and toxicology

Pharmaceuticals are routinely reported in the environment, which indicates an increasingly urban water cycle and highlights a global megatrend. Physicochemical properties and intrinsic biological ... of increasingly urban ecosystems. Two decades ago studies of pharmaceuticals in the environment in general, and aquatic ecosystems in particularly, were rare. One of our earliest posters on the subject

A Review on Graphene-Based Nanomaterials in Biomedical Applications and Risks in Environment and Health

Potential risks resulted from the vast production and applications of GBNs to the environment and health are discussed to ensure sustainable development of GBNs. GBNs

Prescriptive variability of drugs by general practitioners

Prescription drug spending is growing faster than any other sector of healthcare. However, very little is known about patterns of prescribing and cost of prescribing between general practices. In ... care and closely related to the steadily growing workload of general practitioners (GPs) [ 1 ].

Task scheduling system for UAV operations in indoor environment

The application of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in indoor environment is emerging nowadays due to the advancements in technology. UAV brings more space flexibility in an occupied or hardly ... various general systems by specifying the domain (environment), platform (UAV operation system—see Fig. 1), and the interface between them [ 17 ]. Afterwards, the architecture of UAV scheduling system and

Modeling cooperating micro-organisms in antibiotic environment

Escherichia coli (E. coli) were shown to cooperate in order to survive and grow in an antibiotic-rich environment. It is known that P. vortex is a highly effective swarmer that can move rapidly over surfaces ... density for the two bacterial species in an antibiotic environment. Our results are compared with experimental observations. In particular, we confirm the biological hypotheses on which the model is based

General ecological information supports engagement with affordances for ‘higher’ cognition
