This paper presents design procedures for fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) systems inserted in the cover of concrete elements according to the near surface mounted (NSM) technique. Such strengthening system depends greatly on their bond strength. Two existing design formulations to estimate the bond strength of NSM FRP systems in concrete are studied.
Let it be known that Baby is a reluctant crook. Somewhat, at least; after he was orphaned, he boosted cars, until he boosted the wrong one Doc’s. And now he’s using his exquisite skills behind the wheel to pay his debt to the rich and powerful criminal.
Of course, Lenoir is not literally running against Wendi Thomas, the person. Rather, he is running against ideas some might associate with her. It is instructive to consider what a campaign against those ideas might look like. When forming particles from polymerizable monomer droplets, these polymeric surfactant chains can become physically entangled in the particle surface. Due to the key role of the outermost layers of the surface in biomaterial interactions, the surface chemistry and its influence on cells needs to be characterized. This is the first study to assess surfactant retention on microfluidic produced particles and its effect on bacterial attachment; surfactant contaminated microparticles are compared with flat films which are surfactant free.
Gluconeogenesis pathway was the major signaling pathway significantly altered in both. Reassuringly, these findings show remarkable convergence with functional pathways and positional candidate genes implicated from genomic studies. The specificity of schizophrenia proteomic findings are also addressed in the context of neuroproteomic investigations of neurodegenerative disorders and bipolar disorder.
Than a year later, however, the company had burned through its funding and couldn pay employees. By early 2018, ODG had lost half of its workforce as it sought loans to pay back employees. Today, a skeleton crew awaits a patent sale less than a week away after acquisitions from several large tech companies, including Facebook and Magic Leap, fell through, multiple sources tell TechCrunch..
Item Type:ArticleItem Status:Live ArchiveAbstractPath integration is an important navigation strategy in many animal species. We use a genetic algorithm to evolve a novel neural model of path integration, based on input from cells that encode the heading of the agent in a manner comparable to the polarization sensitive interneurons found in insects. The home vector is encoded as a population code across a circular array of cells that integrate this input.
