Combustion Modeling with the G-Equation

Numerical investigations concerning the turbulent flame front propagation in Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engines were made by implementing a flamelet model in the CFD code Fire. The advantage of this combustion model is the decoupling of the chemistry from the turbulent flow. For this purpose the combustion chamber has to be divided into a burned and an unburned area, which...

The role of oral anticoagulants in epistaxis

PurposeThe purpose of this retrospective study was to identify the impact of oral anticoagulants on epistaxis with the focus on new oral anticoagulants.MethodsThe study was conducted at the Department  for Ear- Nose- and Throat (ENT), Head and Neck Surgery, Technical University Munich, Germany. All patients presenting in 2014 with the diagnosis of epistaxis to a specialized ENT...

Early Apoptosis of Macrophages Modulated by Injection of Yersinia pestis YopK Promotes Progression of Primary Pneumonic Plague

Yersinia pestis causes pneumonic plague, a disease characterized by inflammation, necrosis and rapid bacterial growth which together cause acute lung congestion and lethality. The bacterial type III secretion system (T3SS) injects 7 effector proteins into host cells and their combined activities are necessary to establish infection. Y. pestis infection of the lungs proceeds as a...

A Dynamic Simulation Strategy for PCCI Combustion Control Design

Subject of this work is a dynamic simulation strategy for PCCI combustion that can be used in closed-loop control development. A detailed multi-zone chemistry model for the high-pressure part of the engine cycle is extended by a mean value model accounting for the gas exchange losses. The resulting stationary model is capable of describing PCCI combustion sufficiently well. It is...

3d Simulation of Di Diesel Combustion and Pollutant Formation Using a Two-Component Reference Fuel

By separating the fluid dynamic calculation from that of the chemistry, the unsteady flamelet model allows the use of comprehensive chemical mechanisms, which include several hundred reactions. This is necessary to describe the different processes that occur in a DI Diesel engine such as autoignition, the burnout in the partially premixed phase, the transition to diffusive...

Melano-macrophage centres in liver and spleen of ruffe(Gymnocephalus cernua) from the Elbe Estuary

Macrophages with yellow or black deposits of melanin occur singly or in groups in the melano-macrophage centres are functionally the primitive analogues of lymph nodes in birds and mammals. From 1980 to 1982, tumours and pretumorous tissue changes in ruffe from the Elbe Estuary were studied. Pathological alterations occur mainly in the liver and spleen. In connection with both...

High-dose sequential chemotherapy followed by autologous stem cell transplantation in relapsed and refractory aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma: results of a multicenter phase II study

Background: Combination chemotherapy can cure patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), but those who suffer treatment failure or relapse still have a poor prognosis. High-dose chemotherapy (HDCT) with autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) can improve the outcome of these patients. We evaluated an intensified high-dose sequential chemotherapy program with a final...

Loss of Heterozygosity in Benign Breast Epithelium in Relation to Breast Cancer Risk

The multistage model of breast carcinogenesis suggests that errors in DNA replication and repair generate diversity in the breast epithelium (the mutator phenotype), resulting in selection and expansion of premalignant clones with an acquired survival advantage. We measured loss of heterozygosity (LOH) in breast epithelial cells obtained by random fine-needle aspiration (FNA...

Melanin Concentrating Hormone Is a Novel Regulator of Islet Function and Growth

Melanin concentrating hormone (MCH) is a hypothalamic neuropeptide known to play a critical role in energy balance. We have previously reported that overexpression of MCH is associated with mild obesity. In addition, mice have substantial hyperinsulinemia and islet hyperplasia that is out of proportion with their degree of obesity. In this study, we further explored the role of...
