Site Attachment Inhibition Therapeutics and the Application of Quantum Physics to Medicine and Surgery
  • Abstract
  • Keywords
  • Reference
  • Full Article
Concern with respect to antimicrobial resistance and the associated health threat has gained increasing attention and there has been difficulty in gaining progress globally. Given the lack of success by the two pathways established to date which have focused on: 1) "replication of infective agent" and, 2) "immune system enhancement," the current researcher has conceptualized and developed the new, or third, mode of action pathway represented by "site attachment inhibition (or, negation of cellular attachment by infective agents)." The current author anticipates site attachment inhibition therapeutics to include (A) drug (medication) based therapies in treatment of established infections; (B) new generation immunization methods (as preventative treatment) utilizing stem cell based treatment (including prenatal and earlier, spanning back to oogenesis and spermatogenesis) termed stc based immunization in previous publications; and, (C) other forms including waveform (E.g. electromagnetic radiation) based treatment..........

New Signage System For Improving Pedestrian Flow On Single- Exit Metro Stations: Focus On Paris Metro Line 4 Historical Stations
  • Abstract
  • Keywords
  • Reference
  • Full Article
For a number of years now, the use of the Metro is steadily augmenting, making it more and more difficult to ensure traffic regularity (due to a variety of technical problems, increases in exiting/boarding time and passenger accidents), which determines a loss in the system‟s energy efficiency and the increase of traction current expenses. In disadvantageous conditions, such as those found in historical stations having only one access to each platform (present notably along the north-south line 4, opened roughly a century ago) and where the movements of passengers can be disorderly, it seems possible to ameliorate the quality of spaces and the overall service through well-focused low-impact improvements. In this paper, a new signage system with a view to improving flow management and providing better information to passengers is proposed...................

Thermo-Mechanical Behavior of SLS Modified Fly Ash Filled Epoxy Composites
  • Abstract
  • Keywords
  • Reference
  • Full Article
A study on performance characteristics of Epoxy resin composite by incorporation of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) modified Fly Ash as filler fabricated using Hand Layup Technique is carried out. The modified Fly Ash was observed to disperse more uniformly than unmodified counterpart. The filler (SLS modified Fly Ash) concentration was varied from 0-25 wt%. The effects of varying concentration of filler (SLS modified Fly Ash) on Mechanical, Thermal properties were discussed. The filler loading optimization were discussed. The incorporation of different weight percentage loading of Fly Ash ( 0-25 wt%) improved the tensile modulus. The optimum strengthening improvement occurs in composition with 20 wt% of treated Fly Ash. Greater the concentration than 25 wt% lowers the tensile strength because of agglomeration and clustering problem. The optimum loading percentage is investigated with optimum performance characteristics with ecology.

A Visualization Tool For Forest Landscape Using Open Software
  • Abstract
  • Keywords
  • Reference
  • Full Article
The current paper presents the development of a visualization tool (EnvIn 3D 2015) for producing dynamic simulations of actual forested landscapes. The tool is based on the Unity engine and framework, a system for designing game or 3D app scenes. Specifically, this work involves creating a three dimensional interactive representation of a region through an application that enables the user to create a synthetic environment. The main difference from similar computing systems is that it puts the user at the center of activities. We describe in detail its construction and architecture, through the application to an actual forest landscape with thousands of trees to show how this system can be used to simulate the changes of forest landscapes that occur as a result of natural processes or man-made disturbances. Technologies such as Unity, and associated utilized add-ons have been chosen as the most suitable for the interactive visualization of the forest model.

Imperfect Quality And Repairable Items Inventory Model With Different Deterioration Rates Under Price And Time Dependent Demand
  • Abstract
  • Keywords
  • Reference
  • Full Article
Generally items received or produced are not of 100% good quality. Some of them are defective and some them may be repairable. A deterministic inventory model with imperfect quality and repairable items is developed when deterioration rate is different during a cycle. Here it is assumed that demand is a function of price and time. Numerical example is taken to support the model. Sensitivity analysis is also carried out for parameters.

Finite Element Analysis Of The Structural Response Characteristics Of Blast-Resistant Doors According To Support Conditions
  • Abstract
  • Keywords
  • Reference
  • Full Article
Blast-resistant doors are engineered structures purposed for the protection of lives, important equipment and materials in civil and military facilities including plants, industrial and national assets, shelters or ammunition storage facilities. The present study compares the behavioral change of the blast-resistant door structure according to the boundary conditions provided by hinges and latches. The analytic results revealed that (1) placing a hinge at mid-height of the door was more effective than placing a latch in reducing the deflection at the center of the door and, that (2) placing latches at the upper and lower edges of the door or near the corners of the door was appropriate for reducing the deflection developed along the edges of the door. Moreover, the analysis showed that the resistance-to-deformation of the support..........
