Plastic fuel tank deformation in the post blow molding phase due to material shrinkage and deformationMohammad Usman, Syed Ahmad, Zohir Benrabah & Haile Atsbha
29th Annual Blow Molding Conference and Exhibits, Oct. 8-9, 2013, Atlanta, Georgia
The OCT Phantoms Initiative was created to facilitate and accelerate the development of those phantoms which are of most relevance to the OCT community. We will present the results of a survey that was carried out to clearly prioritize the needs which phantoms could address, to facilitate the continued development of OCT. Based on the analysis of this survey, we will present the next proposed steps of the Initiative.
Proton Ceramic Cell (PCC) electrical performance and reliability under reversible (electrolysis) operation : status and prospectsYeong Yoo
Prospects Proton Ceramic Cells (PPCC) 2013: International Workshop on Protonic Ceramic Fuel Cells Status and Prospects, July 10-12, 2013, Montpellier, France
This one-hour webcast was based on recently released research regarding the physiological and psychological effects of windows, daylight and view. The review touched on all aspects of lighting effects on occupant health and well-being from both visual performance through non-visual processes and effects.
Comparisons of measured temperature and heat flux in fire resistance test furnaces controlled by either ISO plate thermometers or by ASTM shielded thermocouples or by directional flame thermometersMohamed Sultan
ASTM 2008 Symposium on Advances in the State of the Art of Fire Testing, December 11, 2008, Miama FL, USA
Exciting advances in lighting technologies will deliver a better future if we apply them intelligently, remembering what we already know about delivering good lighting quality. Over fifteen years of laboratory and field research that has led us to conclude that better office lighting delivers benefits to individuals, their employers, and the environment. We now ask how we might apply this knowledge to the development of LED lighting systems. Our past research focused on the benefits...
Work in progress: validation of an oligonucleotide microarray for the detection of Brucella spp. virulence genesAlfreda Tonelli, Mélanie Arbour, Massimo Ancora, Monaco Federica & Lelli Rossella
The primary aim of this study was to create a diagnostic microarray for the identification of Brucella sp. of clinical importance in both the medical and veterinary field. The microarray should be able to identify other organisms that may cause abortions in animals or that may elicit an immunological response similar to that of Brucella sp. Oligonucleotide probes were designed specific to the most common species found to cause zoonotic pathologies; the sequences were designed...
Improved sequence-based orthologs identification using genomic context information and their impact on pathway analysis in plantsDan Tulpan, Serge Lger, Miroslava Cuperlovic-Culf & Youlian Pan
With the advent of sequencing techniques, a deluge of plant genome projects have emerged, all prompting for accurate and high throughput comparative genomic approaches such as orthology prediction. The current incompleteness, polyploidy and low coverage of most plant genomes prompt for further improvements of orthology prediction using evolutionary-related information such as sequence variability and gene order. While a majority of orthology prediction approaches for large genome-scale datasets typically relies on reciprocal-best-BLAST-hits (RBBH), they suffer from...
Short Course - Smoke Control and Smoke Management: 26 May 2010, Carleton University, Ottawa
Combustion products, including smoke and carbon monoxide, can have major effects on the life safety of occupants. This presentation will examine our understanding of the dynamics of smoke movement in the built environment. It will also report on recent research on issues arising from various technologies and approaches to smoke management, and on the interaction between smoke control and sprinkler systems.
Studies indicate that Suicide is generally a complication of a psychiatric disorder. More than 90% of suicide victims have a diagnosable psychiatric illness, and most people who attempt suicide have a psychiatric disorder. Moreover, 50% of people who commit suicide had sought professional help within one month of the act. This fact affords an opportunity for prevention. The high level of medical intervention before suicide is possible and effective prevention. Careful assessment of physical and...

Panel discussion on the use of agile development methodologies in learning design. My own contribution was to highlight the pitfalls of this approach., and I pointed out that learning design is very different from software design - indeed, are we doing agile "learning design", or design for "agile learning"?
