The effect of liquid hot water pretreatment on the chemical–structural alteration and the reduced recalcitrance in poplar

Mi Li, Shilin Cao, Xianzhi Meng, Michael Hans-Peter Studer, Charles E. Wyman, Arthur J. Ragauskas & Yunqiao Pu
Background: Hydrothermal pretreatment using liquid hot water (LHW) is capable of substantially reducing the cell wall recalcitrance of lignocellulosic biomass. It enhances the saccharification of polysaccharides, particularly cellulose, into glucose with relatively low capital required. Due to the close association with biomass recalcitrance, the structural change of the components of lignocellulosic materials during the pretreatment is crucial to understand pretreatment chemistry and advance the bio-economy. Although the LHW pretreatment has been extensively applied and studied,...

HSQC (heteronuclear single quantum coherence) 13C–1H correlation spectra of whole biomass in perdeuterated pyridinium chloride–DMSO system: An effective tool for evaluating pretreatment

Reichel Samuel, Marcus Foston, Nan Jaing, Shilin Cao, Lenong Allison, Michael Hans-Peter Studer, Charles Wyman & Arthur J. Ragauskas
Perdeuterated pyridinium chloride-DMSO-d 6 is an effective solvent system for whole cell biomass dissolution and NMR characterization. Employing this solvent system, semi-quantitative 13C- 1H heteronuclear single quantum correlation (HSQC) spectroscopy of untreated, steam, dilute acid and lime pretreated poplar biomass samples was readily accomplished. In an effort to demonstrate the efficacy and usefulness of this fairly new characterization technique, relative spectral intensities of the untreated and pretreated biomass samples were evaluated and compared. From the...

Optimierung der Milchproduktion mit frischem Wiesenfutter – Drei Systeme im Vergleich

Beat Reidy, Esther Mulser, Sebastian Manuel Ineichen Colantuoni, Franziska Akert, Katharina Zeller, Stefan Probst, Hansjörg Frey, Thomas Haas, Markus Höltschi & Pius Hofstetter
In der Schweiz praktiziert ein großer Teil der Milch- produzenten ein Fütterungssystem mit Teilweide und Zufütterung von Frischgras im Stall (Eingrasen). Zur Entwicklung von praxisorientierten Lösungen und Optimierungsmöglichkeiten für Eingrasbetriebe mit Teilweide wurden deshalb von 2014 bis 2016 drei Milchproduktionssysteme mit Verfütterung von frischem Wiesenfutter verglichen: Eingrasen mit Teilweide und Zufütterung von reduzierten (EGKF; 430 kg/Kuh und Jahr) und erhöhten (EGKFplus; 1 160 kg/Kuh und Jahr) Kraftfuttermengen sowie Vollweide mit geringen Kraftfuttermengen (VW; 90 kg...

Jenseits von richtig oder falsch: Hoffnung im Pflegealltag fördern

Hoffnungsfördernde Pflege frage nicht danach, ob Patienten und deren Familien hoffen, sondern worauf sie hoffen, sagt Settimio Monteverde, Pflegefachmann, Ethiker und Theologe.

Load carrying capacity of cracked beams

Steffen Franke, Bettina Franke & Noëlie Magnière
The increasing number of wood structure amongst large and potentially public buildings gave a new impulse to the assessment of timber structures. For assessing the state of timber elements, cracks are a key indicator. Therefore, experimental and numerical investigations on not cracked and partly cracked timber members were carried out and analysed. The results show no influence on the stiffness and modulus of elasticity for partly cracked beams. The experimental results were used for the...

Big dairy data to unravel effects of environmental, physiological and morphological factors on milk production of mountain-pastured Braunvieh cows

Solange Duruz, Elia Vajana, Alexander Burren & Christine Flury
The transhumance system, which consists in moving animals to high mountain pastures during summer, plays a considerable role in preserving both local biodiversity and traditions, as well as protecting against natural hazard. In cows, particularly, milk production is observed to decline as a response to food shortage and climatic stress, leading to atypical lactation curves that are barely described by current lactation models. Here, we relied on 5 million monthly milk records from over 200...

Patienten- und Angehörigenaggression und -gewalt : Eine Herausforderung für Management und Leadership.

Sabine Hahn
Aggression und Gewalt ausgehend von Patienten oder Angehörigen ist im Gesundheitswesen schon lange bekannt und weiter verbreitet, als gemeinhin angenommen wird. Abhängig von den Versorgungsbereichen sind Fachpersonen im Gesundheitswesen unterschiedlichen physisch und psychisch verletzenden sowie belastenden Interaktionen mit Patienten und ihren Angehörigen ausgesetzt. Wenig bekannt ist, dass insgesamt ein Viertel aller Aggressionen am Arbeitsplatz im Gesundheitswesen stattfindet [1]. Gesundheitsfachpersonen sind nach Polizei und Sicherheitsleuten unter allen Berufen am zweithäufigsten am Arbeitsplatz von Aggressions- und Gewaltereignissen...

Mechanically-induced wood welding

Milena Properzi, Jean-Michel Leban, Michela Zanetti & Frédéric Pichelin
Mechanically-induced vibration welding of flat wood surfaces and rotation welding of wood dowels, without any adhesives, gave strength values comparable to those obtained with adhesive bonded joints. The joints obtained have strength up to structural level but can only be used for interior joinery and furniture. The reasons of the welding effect are presented and explained both at the wood anatomical and molecular level

Forschung: Räumliche Umgebung und Kommunikationsdesign in Alters- und Pflegeheimen

Marianne Stäubli Wolffers & Dirk Richter
Für die Gestaltung von Langzeitpflegeeinrichtungen im Allgemeinen und Einrichtungen für Demenzkranke im Speziellen existieren zahlreiche Empfehlungen. Diese Empfehlungen beruhen zumeist auf Einschätzungen von Expertinnen und Experten und stützen sich nicht auf empirische Forschung. Ein interdisziplinäres Forschungsprojekt an der Berner Fachhochschule will Daten generieren, um gesichertere Aussagen machen zu können.

Timber bridges: load carrying behaviour according to climate changes

Steffen Franke, Bettina Franke, Marcus Jacob Schiere & Andreas Müller
Timber road bridges have been built worldwide since centuries. The high performance of wood as structural material is approved. However the influence of moisture induced stresses in cross sections according to the varied ambient climate are still questioned. Results observed in the long term monitoring of six timber bridges provide first guidelines for practitioners. Further on, first numerical simulations are carried out for the assessment of the long term behaviour of timber bridges over the...

The German interprofessional attitudes scale: translation, cultural adaptation, and validation

Tina H. Pedersen, Eva Cignacco, Jonas Meuli, Ferdinand Habermann, Joana Berger-Estilita & Robert Greif
Objectives: The implementation of obstetric hybrid simulation and interprofessional collaboration between midwives and anesthetists in labor emergencies fostered the need to evaluate the impact of such a program. The original Interprofessional Attitude Scale (IPAS) assesses interprofessional attitudes among health professional students and includes the 2011 and 2016 Interprofessional Collaborative Practice report competency domains. The purpose of this study was to create a German version of the IPAS (G-IPAS) to use for the education of healthcare...

Strengthening of timber structures using pre-stressed carbon fibre lamellas

Milena Properzi & Frédéric Pichelin
The refurbishment of old buildings often comes hand in hand with an increase of the dead- and live load. This and the higher safety factors often make a reinforcement of the old beams necessary. The use of steel is often not regarded as an adequate solution in a timber construction. This because of the increase of the structures self weight, the appearance and the corrosion in marine environments. The use of CFRP allows methods, which...

Communication Aids for Medical Personnel and Foreign-Language Patients and Their Relations in Paediatric Care.

Murielle Drack, Beatrice Kaufmann & Arne Scheuermann
Clear, comprehensible communication between medical experts and patients in their care is essential. Misunderstandings can cause a sense of insecurity and even incorrect action on the part of the patient. Therefore, foreign-language patients are a special challenge to nursing staff. This situation will become increasingly problematic as immigration rates rise. The aim of the initial project was to define guidelines for the type of communication aids needed by nursing staff in paediatrics. Such guidelines had...
