Meet the (National Council of) Space Grant Directors  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The National Council of Space Grant Directors is a private group that is closely aligned with NASA's National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program. The Council, and NASA, work to: 1) establish a national network of universities with interests and capabilities in aeronautics, space, and related fields 2) encourage cooperative programs among universities, aerospace industry, and federal, state, and local governments 3) encourage interdisciplinary training, research, and public-service programs related to aerospace 4) recruit and train professionals, especially women and underrepresented minorities, for careers in aerospace science, technology, and allied fields 5) promote a strong science, math, and technology educational base from elementary through university levels. There are 52 NASA Space Grant Consortia, located in every one of the United States of America, plus Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia. The Council works to encourge interaction among these consortia, to achieve maximum efficiency of operation. Each consortium has a number of affilates in its state: there are currently more than 700 institutions that are Space Grant Affiliates. Space Grant is not oriented toward a particular discipline (such as astronomy) but toward the larger goal of strengthening the US work force educational level very broadly, thus ensuring that highly-trained people are available to work for and with NASA in the coming century. I will encourge listeners to contact their State Space Grant Consortium to explore "how you can help."

National Aeronautics and Space Administration in 1989, the National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program (also known as Space Grant) contributes to the nation's science enterprise by funding research, education, and public service projects through a national network of 52 university-based Space Grant consortia. These consortia administer programs in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. In 1998, the consortia's 703 affiliates include 493 academic institutions and 62 businesses. Other partners include state and local government agencies, other federal agencies, and nonprofit organizations. Space Grant celebrates its tenth year of service in 1999. Since its inception, Space Grant has awarded over 12,000 U.S. citizens with tuition assistance in science, engineering, and related fields of study. Approximately twenty percent of these awards were to students from underrepresented groups and approximately thirty-five percent were to women. The majority of Space Grant student awards include a mentored research experience with university faculty or NASA scientists. Space Grant funds curriculum enhancement and faculty development as well. Space Grant colleges and universities also administer precollege and public service education programs that help to meet the education needs of their states. The Space Grant consortia have leveraged federal funds to more than double the Space Grant budget with matching contributions from state and local sources. Space Grant encourages collaboration among departments, across institutions, and with business and industry. All Space Grant programs emphasize the diversity of human resources, the participation of students in research, and the communication of the benefits of science and technology to the general public.

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Space Grant Internet Telescope Network (SGITN) is envisioned as a national network of Internet-controllable astronomical observatories that will be available to university students and faculty residing in participating NASA Space Grant states. Our goal is to provide no-cost astronomical resources to non-AURA colleges and universities, with the hope of expanding student and faculty access to astronomical facilities and to encourage students to pursue research careers in astronomy and planetary science. The Network has been created and is managed by the North Dakota Space Grant Consortium, which is a part of the NASA Space Grant College and Fellowship Program. The SGITN began operations on August 1, 2007, with small observatories in North and South Dakota. Telescope apertures range from 10- to 26-inches and support astrometric and photometric research opportunities. Most observatories are controlled via ACP Observatory Control Software, but use of this particular software is not required. However, all participating observatories must be remotely controllable. The UND Observatory, west of Grand Forks, ND, will ultimately contribute four observatories to this Network, while South Dakota is contributing the Badlands Observatory. A new observatory in Utah will join the Network by 12/31/2007. Our goal is to attract > 15 observatories to this Network in the coming years, which will support a large user base and enable unique projects, such as near-Earth asteroid distance determinations. Current users access Network facilities via the SGITN home page at http://sgitn.space.edu. Eligible students and faculty submit observing proposals for consideration and should contribute to a scientifically valid and justifiable research project. All of the necessary forms and information are on the web site and are downloadable as PDF documents. Qualified users work with the SGITN to schedule observing dates and times. Users are encouraged to post their results on the SGITN web site.

Measurement of critical contact angle in a microgravity space experiment  

SciTech Connect

Mathematical theory predicts that small changes in container shape or in contact angle can give rise to large shifts of liquid in a microgravity environment. This phenomenon was investigated in the Interface Configuration Experiment on board the NASA USML-2 Space Shuttle flight. The experiment's double proboscis containers were designed to strike a balance between conflicting requirements of sizable volume of liquid shift (for ease of observation) and abruptness of the shift (for accurate determination of critical contact angle). The experimental results support the classical concept of macroscopic contact angle and demonstrate the role of hysteresis in impeding orientation toward equilibrium.

South Dakota Space Grant Consortium: Balancing Indigenous Earth System and Space Science with Western/Contemporary Science  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The South Dakota Space Grant Consortium (SDSGC) was established March 1, 1991 by a NASA Capability Enhancement Grant. Since that time SDSGC has worked to provide earth system and space science education, outreach and services to all students across South Dakota. South Dakota has nine tribes and five Tribal Colleges. This has presented a tremendous opportunity to develop sustainable equitable partnerships and collaborations. SDSGC believes strongly in developing programs and activities that highlight and reinforce the balance of Indigenous science and ways of knowing with current findings in Western/Contemporary Science. This blending of science and culture creates a learning community where individuals especially students, can gain confidence and pride in their unique skills and abilities. Universities are also witnessing the accomplishments and achievements of students who are able to experience a tribal environment and then carry that experience to a college/university/workplace and significantly increase the learning achievement of all. The presentation will highlight current Tribal College and Tribal Community partnerships with the Rosebud Sioux Reservation (Sinte Gleska University), Pine Ridge Indian Reservation (Oglala Lakota College), Standing Rock Sioux Reservation (Sitting Bull College) and Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation (Si Tanka) amongst others. Programs and activities to be explained during the presentation include but not limited to: NASA Workforce Native Connections, Scientific Knowledge for Indian Learning and Leadership (SKILL), NSF "Bridges to Success" Summer Research Program, NSF "Fire Ecology" Summer Research Experience, as well as geospatial and space science programs for students and general community members. The presentation will also cover the current initiatives underway through NASA Workforce Development. These include: partnering with the Annual He Sapa Wacipi (Black Hills Pow Wow - attendance of 14,000 Natives) to host Native Space Days 2005 (October 2005), NASA research and internship programs, and the NASA Student Fellowship Summit. An overview of recent American Indian student success will conclude the presentation. The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology has struggled over many years to develop and implement sustainable successful initiatives with Tribal Colleges and Communities. The motivating philosophy is the betterment of all people in South Dakota and the nation through developing a worldview and understanding of the integrated nature of all things, especially earth system and space science. If people are provided equity and access, there is no limit to what they can accomplish. SDSM&T in the last three years has graduated nineteen Natives with degrees in engineering, many of those students Tribal College transfers. This is a significant increase, as only forty Natives had graduated from SDSM&T between the years of 1970 and 2000. SDSM&T has seen a number of "historical firsts" in the past five years. We see this as being a direct result of creating for students an educational philosophy and process where Indigenous understanding and connections become the foundation on which to build a STEM degree program. NASA's presence on the SDSM&T campus and in South Dakota has provided the necessary focus and encouragement for success to take place. We are building bridges in South Dakota and the builders are from Indian Country.

Geospatial Education in Alaska's High Schools: A new Initiative of the Alaska Space Grant Program  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In the summer of 2004, the Alaska Space Grant Program (ASGP) made its first step to start a new and unique initiative to bring geospatial education to the high schools. Setting up this education outreach effort in the largest of the 50 states of US that has a population density of about one person per square mile, has its unique benefits and challenges. It is particularly rewarding as one reaches out to distant native and minority communities in their own local environment. Introducing Earth and Space Science topics with a geospatial context makes such educational efforts of local relevance. Training in the use of Earth and Space Science data and tools is of practical significance to the distant communities and also contributes to the development of a new technically skilled geospatial workforce that is prepared to meet the state and national needs. In the summer of 2004 ASGP ran the first two week summer workshop on "Global Positioning System (GPS) and Geographic Information System (GIS) for Alaska School Teachers". Fourteen high school teachers from various parts of the state participated and received training on the use of GPS and GIS and carried out small projects of significance to their local regions. Follow up visits were made by the course instructors to some selected schools and within six months, two high schools incorporated these in their class room teaching (www.gi.alaska.edu/~prakash/teaching/geos595). To reach out to schools that do not have well established computational facilities, ASGP build a mobile GIS laboratory with 15 laptops-GPS-GIS software assemblage. This mobile set up will be used in the second two week summer course scheduled to be run in June 2005. This batch of teachers will be more comfortable introducing GPS/GIS technology in their class rooms where they will have the possibility to use the same hardware and software setup as they used during their training, ensuring even greater success of this initiative.

Space and contact networks: capturing the locality of disease transmission.  

PubMed

While an arbitrary level of complexity may be included in simulations of spatial epidemics, computational intensity and analytical intractability mean that such models often lack transparency into the determinants of epidemiological dynamics. Although numerous approaches attempt to resolve this complexity-tractability trade-off, moment closure methods arguably offer the most promising and robust frameworks for capturing the role of the locality of contact processes on global disease dynamics. While a close analogy may be made between full stochastic spatial transmission models and dynamic network models, we consider here the special case where the dynamics of the network topology change on time-scales much longer than the epidemiological processes imposed on them; in such cases, the use of static network models are justified. We show that in such cases, static network models may provide excellent approximations to the underlying spatial contact process through an appropriate choice of the effective neighbourhood size. We also demonstrate the robustness of this mapping by examining the equivalence of deterministic approximations to the full spatial and network models derived under third-order moment closure assumptions. For systems where deviation from homogeneous mixing is limited, we show that pair equations developed for network models are at least as good an approximation to the underlying stochastic spatial model as more complex spatial moment equations, with both classes of approximation becoming less accurate only for highly localized kernels.

A review of sliding electrical contacts for space application  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The status of slip ring technology is summarized. Adequate signal and power level performance is obtained from rings which comprise composite brushes, based on silver and incorporating molydbenum disulfide running against silver or rhodium plated rings. Composite brushes, containing niobium diselenide, perform well, but tend to produce higher electrical noise. This might improve if homegeneous niobium diselenide can be prepared. Gallium film lubrication of sliding contacts is extremely effective. However, the long term performance of this lubrication process is not known. Its implementation in a practical system appears to be impracticable. Wire brushes lead to high wear and noise when run against slip rings in the absence of lubrication. The addition of organic lubricants improves these characteristics. The lubricant is most effectively applied by condensation from the vapor of the chosen oil. This process requires, however, stringent precautions to prevent contamination by oil vapor of other spacecraft components.

On contact interaction between a moving massive body and a linear elastic half space  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We study a class of problems involving the motion of a linear elastic body in frictional contact with a linear elastic half space. The dynamic effects considered are the inertial properties of the body regarded as rigid. We study only those regimes of contact interaction for which the slip velocity with the body taken as absolutely rigid and the time rate of change of the elastic displacements of points of the body and the half space that are on the contact surface are of the same order of magnitude. This work generalizes previous work on similar problems in that we simultaneously consider inertia forces of the body and the convective term in the slip-velocity due to the rigid-body velocity of the slider/indentor. Thus regimes of contact interaction investigated include rolling/sliding and shift-torsion type. We propose a variational formulation of the following two problems: (a) finite contact area and shift-torsion type of contact kinematics, (b) local contact area and general kinematics at the contact surface. Results for an elastic cylinder contacting an elastic half-plane are also given.

Contact finite element analysis of hinge joints for large deployable antenna in space satellite  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Various malfunctions have been observed in space structures. These include failure of precise positioning control, such as the failure of the ASTRO-G parabolic antenna, failure of piston sliding parts, and instability due to incomplete expansion of IKAROS' membrane. One reason for such failures is the friction at the contact points. Owing to the presence of various particles in air, an adhesive layer of particles is formed on metal surfaces. When metals get rubbed with each other, these particles are removed from the metal surfaces. In the atmosphere, the adhesive particle layer forms again on the metal surface. However, this layer cannot be formed in space. Therefore, the coefficient of friction in vacuum is larger than that in air. Generally, the coefficient of friction between metals is about 0.3. In vacuum, the coefficient of friction between metals may exceed 1.0. In the design stage, it is important to understand the friction behavior of a hinge joint in vacuum. Many parts of space structures are attached to each other via hinged joints. The frictional force on the contacts is used to fix the positions of these parts. The mechanical behavior of space structures varies with the friction of the hinge joints. The reliability of the space structure depends on these hinge joints. In 2012, it has become possible to conduct a detailed analysis owing to the improvements in computational performance and numerical simulation techniques. The entire space structure can be computed, including the friction model of the contacts of hinge joints. To develop high-reliability satellites, we attempted the development of contact modeling techniques by using a high-performance computer (JSS) and the Advance/FrontSTR in this study. The contact behaviors were verified by using computational models of the hinge joints.

The MicroMAPS Project: A NASA - Virginia Space Grant Consortium Initiative  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The MicroMAPS instrument is a nadir-viewing, gas filter correlation radiometer that operates in the 4.67-micrometer band of carbon monoxide. MicroMAPS was designed at North Carolina State University and built at Resonance Ltd in Canada for flight on the NASA-Clark spacecraft, under the Small Spacecraft Technology Initiative. Because of spacecraft-related delays, the Clark mission was cancelled in February 1998. The instrument was removed from the spacecraft in August 2000 and placed in storage at NASA Langley Research Center until the initiation of the current MicroMAPS project in 2002. The primary goal of the MicroMAPS mission is to examine the chemical and transport processes in the lower atmosphere. The scientific objectives are to 1) demonstrate the reliability and accuracy of the two-layer profiles and total column amounts of CO in the troposphere; 2) provide additional CO measurements and profiles to investigators who develop combined chemistry-transport models, data assimilation models, and other regional- to global-scale atmospheric models; and 3) complement the measurement matrix of space-based CO sensors such as MOPITT on the Terra and TES on the AURA spacecrafts. Test flights of the MicroMAPS CO remote sensor on the Proteus 281 aircraft (owned by Scaled Composites, Inc.) will enable the development and testing of data retrieval algorithms for this instrument, and the verification of these remote CO measurements through comparisons with CO profiles that are measured directly. The aerospace engineering student team from Virginia Polytechnic Institute completed the instrument system and the enclosure design in May 2002. The new composite enclosure replaces the nose of the starboard tail boom during MicroMAPS flights. The instrument system consists of MicroMAPS, an optical window, a data acquisition computer, environmental sensors, and a power inverter. The integrated instrument system, after testing at NASA Langley is completed, will be shipped to Scaled Composites, Inc. in Mojave, CA, to be integrated, calibrated, and flown on a series of test flights. These initial data sets will be used to test the prototype retrieval algorithms under development by the engineering student team at the University of Virginia. The MicroMAPS instrument system will fly on-board Proteus, as a non-interfering payload in collaboration with other integrated payloads.

[Investigations on the tolerance and reliability of contact lenses in air and space travel (author's transl)].  

PubMed

It is still forbidden by German law for cockpit aircrew to wear contact lenses. This is due in particular to experience gathered in the past with older types of contact lenses, especially those made of glass or PMMA. Meanwhile, technological progress has brought improvements in respect of material, size, tolerance and particularly the optical result. Investigations were carried out with regard to the tolerance of contact lenses in condition of low humidity, high g and sudden compression. The results are given and the consequences for cockpit aircrew and passengers are discussed. PMID:7421005

Modeling of fluid–structure interactions with the space–time finite elements: contact problems  

Microsoft Academic Search

Fluid–structure interaction computations based on interface-tracking (moving-mesh) techniques are often hindered if the structural\\u000a surfaces come in contact with each other. As the distance between two structural surfaces tends to zero, the fluid mesh in\\u000a between distorts severely and eventually becomes invalid. Our objective is to develop a technique for modeling problems where\\u000a the contacting structural surfaces would otherwise inhibit

The effect of contact spacing on the efficiency of flat plate solar collector plates  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Rather than use a continuous weld or solder for thermal contact in the attachment of an extended surface to an energy removal tube, attention is given to the use of discontinuous attachment through the uniform distribution of finite regions of contact. This scheme is applied to a solar energy collection system in which it was thought capable of yielding fabrication and reliability improvements. A nondimensional formulation and numerical solution of FEM modeling yields the sensitivity of collector thermal performance to weld-solder joint dimensions. The discontinuous weld is found to significantly degrade system performance in proportion to the fin surface Biot modulus, with the controlling parameter (with respect to weld dimensions) being the perimeter length at the weld location of contact.

Comet 8P/Tuttle: A portrait of a contact-binary nucleus from Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes observations  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We detected the nucleus of comet 8P/Tuttle, a nearly-isotropic comet (NIC) in a 13.5~yr orbital period, during its 2007--2008 close (0.25~AU) Earth encounter with the Planetary Camera 2 of the Hubble Space Telescope(HST on 10-11 December 2007 and with the infrared camera (MIPS) of the Spitzer Space Telescope (SST) on 22-23 June 2008, sampling the rotational period of the nucleus. We determined a synodic rotational period of 11.40 +/-0.12 h and, by combining with the radar observations of Harmon et al. (2010), a sidereal rotation period of 11.444 +/-0.001h. The visible and thermal light curve exhibit a complex shape best modeled by a contact-binary as evidenced by the radar observations. By combining these light curves and adding a constraint on the thermal inertia coming from millimetric observations at the Plateau de Bure Observatory, we determined the shape and size of the binary system approximated by two spheres in contact with respective radius of 2.56 and 1.1 km, a common albedo in the range 0.04 to 0.054 and a linear phase coefficient in the range 0.033 to 0.04 mag/deg. These results suggest a strong similarity of the properties of the nuclei of ecliptic and nearly-isotropic comets. We found that the shape model resulting from the radar observations is incompatible with both the HST and SST observations. A partial agreement could be obtained by assuming very different albedos of the two components, in a ratio of at least 5.

The system of Regional Contact Offices for promoting GMES services and the use of Space Technologies in European Regions.  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In 2005, the EU made the strategic choice of developing a space-based programme, called Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES). GMES is an independent Earth monitoring initiative led by the European Union and carried out in partnership with the Member States and the European Space Agency (ESA). Its primary objective is to provide information services that give access to accurate data and information in the field of the environment and security and are tailored to the needs of users. However, at the regional level, stakeholders are often not aware about the potential benefits of services Europe's GMES initiative can provide; yet Europe's ca. 350 regions represent a large reservoir of potential GMES users where GMES services can add value to existing services. Refining data, products and services from global GMES services in the various domains (i.e. land, marine, atmosphere, emergency response, security and climate change), GMES downstream services may be customised to individual user needs, many of which are to be found a the regional level. Within a number of regions, links between the different types of stakeholders have grown over the years. Often, individual actors have developed inter-regional links but their linkage is in most cases not formalised. When looking at the European scale, that overall awareness of GMES downstream opportunities is still very low with respect to the potential benefits regions could draw from a wider participation. However, being aware of the potential of GMES, of the important role they can play and of the need for exchanging experiences, pioneering Local and Regional Authorities (LRAs) intending to retrieve benefit from space technologies, including GMES, have now started to collaborate within structured networks, NEREUS being the most advanced example. The logically next step is that LRAs engage in a dialogue with service-industry and European decision-makers to maximize the benefits from these innovative tools which have significant impact on the economy, environment and the quality of life of the citizens To this aim since 2011 the system of Regional Contact Offices (RCOs) was promoted by the EU FP7 DORIS_Net (Downsteam Observatory organized by Regions Active in Space - Network, http://www.doris-net.eu/) project as the regional link to the services provided by the European GMES programme. Since then a first nucleus of 12 pilot European Regions were working together establishing 6 first RCOs around Europe. This paper will present RCOs network goals, achievements and perspectives as well as its planned actions devoted to improve quality of Space Technology products from one side, to promote awareness and use of them by potential end-users (and particularly LRAs), from the other side.

Reduction of the secondary structure topological space through direct estimation of the contact energy formed by the secondary structures  

PubMed Central

Background Electron cryomicroscopy is a fast developing technique aiming at the determination of the 3-dimensional structures of large protein complexes. Using this technique, protein density maps can be generated with 6 to 10 Ĺ resolution. At such resolutions, the secondary structure elements such as helices and ?-strands appear to be skeletons and can be computationally detected. However, it is not known which segment of the protein sequence corresponds to which of the skeletons. The topology in this paper refers to the linear order and the directionality of the secondary structures. For a protein with N helices and M strands, there are (N!2N)(M!2M) different topologies, each of which maps N helix segments and M strand segments on the protein sequence to N helix and M strand skeletons. Since the backbone position is not available in the skeleton, each topology of the skeletons corresponds to additional freedom to position the atoms in the skeletons. Results We have developed a method to construct the possible atomic structures for the helix skeletons by sampling the solution space of all the possible topologies of the skeletons. Our method also ranks the possible structures based on the contact energy formed by the secondary structures, rather than the entire chain. If we assume that the backbone atomic positions are known for the skeletons, then the native topology of the secondary structures can be found in the top 30% of the ranked list of all possible topologies for all the 30 proteins tested, and within the top 5% for most of the 30 proteins. Without assuming the backbone location of the skeletons, the possible atomic structures of the skeletons can be constructed using the axis of the skeleton and the sequence segments. The best constructed structure for the skeletons has RMSD to native between 4 and 5 Ĺ for the four tested ?-proteins. These best constructed structures were ranked the 17th, 31st, 16th and 5th respectively for the four proteins out of 32066, 391833, 98755 and 192935 possible assignments in the pool. Conclusion Our work suggested that the direct estimation of the contact energy formed by the secondary structures is quite effective in reducing the topological space to a small subset that includes a near native structure for the skeletons.

Patterning of 25 nm Contact Holes at 90 nm Pitch: Combination of Line/Space Double Exposure Immersion Lithography and Plasma-Assisted Shrink Technology  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In this work, two methods are combined in order to provide 25 nm contact holes at 90 nm pitch: the line/space double exposure immersion lithography and the plasma-assisted shrink technology. We first present the line/space imaging method with negative tone development to create directly 45 nm CH at 90 nm pitch. Then, we discuss plasma-assisted shrink technology and how it applies to these small contacts. Plasma-assisted shrink technology relies on running a fast cyclic process, where plasma polymers are deposited on the photoresist mask, then subsequently redistributed over the features sidewalls, allowing in final a diameter reduction of approximatively 50%. Finally, for the metal-hard-mask patterning approach, the dielectric etch challenges driven by the dimensional scaling are analysed and discussed.

Axodendritic Contacts onto Calcium/Calmodulin-Dependent Protein Kinase Type II-Expressing Neurons in the Barn Owl Auditory Space Map  

PubMed Central

In the owl midbrain, a map of auditory space is synthesized in the inferior colliculus (IC) and conveyed to the optic tectum (OT). Ascending auditory information courses through these structures via topographic axonal projections. Little is known about the molecular composition of projection neurons or their postsynaptic targets. To visualize axodendritic contacts between identified cell types, we used double-label immunohistochemistry, in vivo retrograde tracing, in vitro anterograde tracing, high-resolution confocal microscopy, three-dimensional reconstruction and fly-through visualization. We discovered a major class of IC neurons that strongly expressed calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase type II, ? subunit (CaMKII). The distribution of these cells within the IC was mostly restricted to the external nucleus of the IC (ICX), in which the auditory space map is assembled. A large proportion of ICX-OT projection neurons were CaMKII positive. In addition to being the principal outputs, CaMKII cells were in direct contact with axonal boutons emanating from the main source of input to ICX, the lateral shell of the central nucleus of the inferior colliculus (ICCls). Numerous sites of putative synaptic contact were found on the somata, proximal dendrites, and distal dendrites. Double-label immunoelectron microscopy confirmed the existence of synapses between ICCls axons and the dendrites of CaMKII cells. Collectively, our data indicate that CaMKII ICX neurons are a cellular locus for the computation of auditory space-specific responses. Because the ICCls-ICX projection is physically altered during experience-dependent plasticity, these results lay the groundwork for probing microanatomical rearrangements that may underlie plasticity and learning.

Wear modes active in angular contact ball bearings operating in liquid oxygen environment of the Space Shuttle turbopumps  

SciTech Connect

Extensive experimental investigation has been carried out on used flight bearings of the high pressure oxidizer turbopumps (HPOTP) of the space shuttle main engine (SSME) in order to determine the dominant wear modes, their extent, and causes. The paper presents the methodology, various surface analysis techniques used, results, and discussion. The mode largely responsible for premature bearing wear has been identified as adhesive/shear peeling of the upper layers of bearing balls and rings. This mode relies upon the mechanisms of scale formation, breakdown, and removal, all of which are greatly enhanced by the heavy oxidation environment of the HPOTP. Major causes of the high wear rates appear to be lubrication and cooling, both inadequate for the imposed conditions of operation. Numerous illustrations and evidence are provided. 22 refs.

OAK B188 Plasma Colloquium Travel Grant Program. The purpose of the Travel Grant Program is to increase the awareness of plasma research. The new results and techniques of plasma research in fusion plasmas, plasma processing space plasmas, basic plasma science, etc, have broad applicability throughout science. The benefits of these results are limited by the relatively low awareness and appreciation of plasma research in the larger scientific community. Whereas spontaneous interactions between plasma scientists and other scientists are useful, a focused effort in education and outreach to other scientists is efficient and is needed. The academic scientific community is the initial focus of this effort, since that permits access to a broad cross-section of scientists and future scientists including undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and research staff.

Obtaining research funding is central to the research process. However many (clinician-) scientists receive little, or no, training in the process of writing a successful grant application. In an era of reductions in research budgets and application success rates, the ability to construct a well presented, clear, articulate proposal is becoming more important than ever. Obtaining grants is a method to achieve your long term research goals. If you are able to formulate these long term goals, it is relevant to explore the market and investigate all potential grant opportunities. Finally, we will provide an outline of key elements of successful research grants. PMID:22208796

NSF grant reductions  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Many National Science Foundation grants will be reduced this year as a result of a provision in H.R. 3299. The provision stems from disagreement between the Congress and the administration on how to make budget deficit cuts required by the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings budget law. An agreement was made to cut $4.55 billion through a reduction in discretionary spending, by what amounts to 1.4% across-the-board. The cuts will affect all discretionary federal domestic and defense programs.

Real-space microscopic electrical imaging of n+-p junction beneath front-side Ag contact of multicrystalline Si solar cells  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We investigated the quality of the n+-p diffused junction beneath the front-side Ag contact of multicrystalline Si solar cells by characterizing the uniformities of electrostatic potential and doping concentration across the junction using the atomic force microscopy-based electrical imaging techniques of scanning Kelvin probe force microscopy and scanning capacitance microscopy. We found that Ag screen-printing metallization fired at the over-fire temperature significantly degrades the junction uniformity beneath the Ag contact grid, whereas metallization at the optimal- and under-fire temperatures does not cause degradation. Ag crystallites with widely distributed sizes were found at the Ag-grid/emitter-Si interface of the over-fired cell, which is associated with the junction damage beneath the Ag grid. Large crystallites protrude into Si deeper than the junction depth. However, the junction was not broken down; instead, it was reformed on the entire front of the crystallite/Si interface. We propose a mechanism of junction-quality degradation, based on emitter Si melting at the temperature around the Ag-Si eutectic point during firing, and subsequent re-crystallization with incorporation of Ag and other impurities and with formation of crystallographic defects during quenching. The effect of this junction damage on solar cell performance is discussed.

Contact Mechanics  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This book describes the stresses and deformations of solid bodies in contact with each other, along curved surfaces that touch initially at a point of contact or along a line. Examples are a railroad track and the wheels running on it, or a pair of meshed gear teeth. The book commences with the development of the theory since the problem was first described in 1882. There is also a discussion of the influence of friction and the topographical roughness of surfaces. An important feature of the book is the treatment of plastic and viscoelastic bodies, and an appreciable section of the book discusses bodies in sliding or rolling contact. The mathematical treatment assumes that users of the book are graduates in engineering; it is a book written by a distinguished engineer for other professionals and their graduate students.

Seismic motion in urban sites consisting of blocks in welded contact with a soft layer overlying a hard half-space  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We address the problem of the response to a seismic wave of an urban site consisting of Nb blocks overlying a soft layer underlain by a hard substratum. The results of a theoretical analysis, appealing to a space-frequency mode-matching (MM) technique, are compared to those obtained by a space-time finite-element (FE) technique. The two methods are shown to give rise to the same prediction of the seismic response for Nb = 1, 2 and 40 blocks. The mechanism of the interaction between blocks and the ground, as well as that of the mutual interaction between blocks, are studied. It is shown, in the first part of this paper, that the presence of a small number of blocks modifies the seismic disturbance in a manner which evokes qualitatively, but not quantitatively, what was observed during the 1985 Michoacan earthquake in Mexico City. Anomalous earthquake response at a much greater level, in terms of duration, peak and cumulative amplitude of motion, is shown, by a theoretical and numerical analysis in the second part of this paper, to be induced by the presence of a large (>=10) number of identical equi-spaced blocks that are present in certain districts of many cities.

Contact hysteroscopy.  

PubMed

In 1907 innovations in optics and illumination made by Maximilian Nitze were applied to hysteroscopy by Charles David, who wrote a treatise of hysteroscopy. David improved illumination by placing an electric incandescent bulb at the intrauterine end of his endoscope and also sealed the distal end of the tube with a piece of glass. The history of the contact endoscope that the authors personally used is connected to the invention by Vulmiere (1952) of a revolutionary illumination process in endoscopy--the "cold light" process. The components of cold light consist of a powerful external light source that is transmitted via a special optical guide into the endometrial cavity. The 1st application of his principle (1963) was an optical trochar contained in a metallic sheath. This simple endoscope was perfected, and in 1973 Barbot and Parent, in France, began to use it to examine the uterine cavity. Discussion focuses on methods, instrumentation, method for examination (grasping the instrument, setup, light source, anesthesia, dilatation, technique, and normal endometrium); cervical neoplasia; nonneoplastic lesions of the endometrium (endometrial polyp, submucous myoma, endometrial hyperplasia); intrauterine device localization; neoplastic lesions of the endometrium; precursors (adenocarcinoma); hysteroscopy in pregnancy (embryoscopy, hydatidiform mole, postpartum hemorrhage, incomplete abortion, spontaneous abortion, induced abortions, and amnioscopy); and examinations of children and infants. The contact endoscope must make light contact with the structure to be viewed. The principles of contact endoscopy depend on an interpretation of color, contour, vascular pattern, and a sense of touch. These are computed together and a diagnosis is made on the basis of previously learned clinical pathologic correlations. The contact endoscope is composed of 3 parts: an optical guide; a cylindric chamber that collects and traps ambient light; and a magnifying eyepiece. The phase of the menstrual cycle may be identified on the basis of the endometrial pattern. This pattern diagnosis is dependent on color, contour, and physical adhesiveness of the tissue. Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) is the most common neoplastic lesion of the cervix. When atypical epithelium extends into the cervical canal beyond the view of the colposcope, the 6 mm contact hysteroscope has been helpful in determining the extent and severity of the lesion as well as to direct biopsy equipment to the site of the pathologic condition.

Incremental stiffness and electrical contact conductance in the contact of rough finite bodies.

If two half spaces are in contact, there exists a formal mathematical relation between the electrical contact resistance and the incremental elastic compliance. Here, this relation is extended to the contact of finite bodies. In particular, it is shown that the additional resistance due to roughness of the contacting surfaces (the interface resistance) bears a similar relation to the additional compliance as that obtained for the total resistance in the half-space problem.

Exploration for uranium deposits, Grants mineral belt  

SciTech Connect

Uranium ore deposits in the Grants mineral belt, New Mexico, occur in fluvial sandstones in the Morrison Formation (Jurassic). Uranium mineralization is concentrated by a dark-gray to black substance that has been identified as humate, which is derived from decaying vegetation. Black ore is truncated by overlying sandstone in at least three ore deposits, documenting an early age for mineralization. Ore deposits in the Grants mineral belt vary greatly in size and shape, tend to occur in clusters, and often present difficult drill targets. Current exploration is largely a matter of drilling in stages to distinguish favorable from unfavorable ground on a wide spacing, to seek mineralization in favorable ground, and to conduct close-spaced drilling in mineralized areas. Criteria for favorability differ among exploration groups but generally include 1) presence of a host sandstone, 2) anomalous mineralization, 3) color of the host rock, 4) presence of carbonaceous matter, and 5) position of the area relative to mineralized trends. A description of the drilling sequence, from ore discovery to the development of a mine at the Johnny M deposit (in the east part of the Ambrosia Lake district), exemplifies the problem of predicting where orebodies may occur. A study of the drill data at the Johnny M indicates the uranium ore is not related to specific geologic features other than humate, which is commonly associated with coalified plant fragments in mudstone-rich parts of the host sandstone.

Sea Grant Nonindigeneous Species Site  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The National Sea Grant College Program, in conjunction with the Great Lakes Sea Grant Network, has recently launched the Sea Grant Nonindigenous Species Site (SGNIS). Intended to serve as a national information center, SGNIS is structured as a database and provides "a comprehensive collection of research publications and education materials ... on zebra mussels and other aquatic nuisance species." The database is searchable by Title, Authors, Organization, Date of publication, or Keywords (subject), and typical returns provide hyperlinks to abstracts, and in come cases, the full text (.pdf format) of published articles. In addition to the publications listed here, a selection of external links points users to additional sites. This is an excellent resource, well conceived and up to date.

Contact modeling for robotics applications  

SciTech Connect

At Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), the authors are developing the ability to accurately predict motions for arbitrary numbers of bodies of arbitrary shapes experiencing multiple applied forces and intermittent contacts. In particular, the authors are concerned with the simulation of systems such as part feeders or mobile robots operating in realistic environments. Preliminary investigation of commercial dynamics software packages led them to the conclusion that they could use commercial software to provide everything they needed except for the contact model. They found that ADAMS best fit their needs for a simulation package. To simulate intermittent contacts, they need collision detection software that can efficiently compute the distances between non-convex objects and return the associated witness features. They also require a computationally efficient contact model for rapid simulation of impact, sustained contact under load, and transition to and from contact conditions. This paper provides a technical review of a custom hierarchical distance computation engine developed at Sandia, called the C-Space Toolkit (CSTk). In addition, they describe an efficient contact model using a non-linear damping term developed by SNL and Ohio State. Both the CSTk and the non-linear damper have been incorporated in a simplified two-body testbed code, which is used to investigate how to correctly model the contact using these two utilities. They have incorporated this model into the ADAMS software using the callable function interface. An example that illustrates the capabilities of the 9.02 release of ADAMS with their extensions is provided.

Final report of research supported by DOE Grant No. DE-FG02-96ER14635: Photochemical studies of two component systems within the restricted spaces of zeolites.  

SciTech Connect

Most chemistry in nature occurs within a closed and confined space. In contrast to this time-evolved [m?] organic chemists have focused their interests in developing reaction methods in solution. The price for this is paid in terms of non-selectivity in product formation, expensive reagents, and enormous wastes. Eventually 'man-developed' solution methods to make molecules have to be replaced by more selective, more environmentally friendly, and less expensive strategies. One approach in this direction would be to use controlled environments. The project focused towards developing energy efficient methods to prepare energy rich molecules that were useful to the public. In this context synthetic zeolites, the counterpart of naturally occurring minerals, were explored as the reaction media.

Contact geometry in Lagrangian mechanics  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We present a picture of Lagrangian mechanics, free of some unnatural features (such as complete divergences). As a byproduct, a completely natural U(1)-bundle over the phase space appears. The correspondence between classical and quantum mechanics is very clear, e.g. no topological ambiguities remain. Contact geometry is the basic tool.

Effects of shallow basaltic intrusion into pyroclastic deposits, Grants Ridge, New Mexico, USA  

Microsoft Academic Search

A localized aureole up to 10 m wide developed around a 150-m-wide, 2.6 Ma basaltic plug at Grants Ridge, New Mexico. The plug intruded into nonwelded, pumice-rich compositionally homogenous tuff and volcaniclastic sediments of similar age (3.3 Ma). Color variation (pinkish to orange), strong local contact welding, brecciation, partial melting, and stoping characterize the host rock within the contact zone.

Contact hole imaging characteristics from projection lithography.  

PubMed

Image intensity profiles (IIPs) are calculated for selected cross sections of contact hole arrays for a circular source and objective in the presence of the defocus aberration. The IIPs for selected cross sections of contact holes are compared with IlPs from correspondingly dimensioned gratings. At resolution levels equal to or greater than 0.9 lambda/N.A., the predicted contact hole image quality should be similar to that attainable from correspondingly dimensioned line-space gratings. Although the shapes of the contact holes appear to be predicted well, in some cases the experimental contact hole to grating dimensional comparison indicates significantly less than perfect imaging characteristics. Advanced lens systems with similar resolution ratios but different depth of focus characteristics are also compared for contact hole imaging. Contact hole imaging characteristics are much more sensitive to residual aberrations in the optical lens system and can provide a convenient measure of the relative magnitude of these aberrations.

Improved small satellite access of the space network  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This report contains the results of a study performed under the sponsorship of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) made as a grant to the Center for Space Telemetering and Telecommunication Systems at New Mexico State University. The purpose of this phase of the grant is to increase user access to the Space Network (SN) run by NASA for supplying space-to-ground communications for satellites and associated control centers. The identified need is to bring more users into the community of those accessing the SN, especially those in the small satellite class of users. The initial phase of the study concerned the potential for modifications to the standard transponder used in the SN. The results of that investigation are summarized in Section 4. As the hardware modifications were being investigated, a second option was developed, namely to consider changes to the operational mode for the small satellites. This operational concept was to use a single, fixed-pointing antenna in a spin-stabilized satellite and let the antenna pattern sweep past the Tracking and Data Relay Satellites (TDRS) in the SN. The question to be answered by this phase of the study was twofold: could enough contact time per day be made available using this simple operating mode and could the data rate be high enough to allow for sufficient data throughput to satisfy the user community using existing components. Section 2 outlines the methodology and simulation results to answer these questions. Section 3 contains a summary of an operational simulation of a simple satellite payload using these contact scenarios. The simulation is not all inclusive but shows how a payload simulation could be configured to utilize variable contact times. The answer to both of the questions desired to be answered is affirmative. By carefully choosing the correct system transmission power and antenna pattern, the system will allow support to the 50th percentile of expected systems. It is recommended that based on this initial study, further work be done to quantify the exact parameters for transmission through the space network and to optimize usage of the contact time to maximize throughput.

It's Money! Real-World Grant Experience through a Student-Run, Peer-Reviewed Program  

PubMed Central

Grantsmanship is an integral component of surviving and thriving in academic science, especially in the current funding climate. Therefore, any additional opportunities to write, read, and review grants during graduate school may have lasting benefits on one's career. We present here our experience with a small, student-run grant program at Georgetown University Medical Center. Founded in 2010, this program has several goals: 1) to give graduate students an opportunity to conduct small, independent research projects; 2) to encourage graduate students to write grants early and often; and 3) to give graduate students an opportunity to review grants. In the 3 yr since the program's start, 28 applications have been submitted, 13 of which were funded for a total of $40,000. From funded grants, students have produced abstracts and manuscripts, generated data to support subsequent grant proposals, and made new professional contacts with collaborators. Above and beyond financial support, this program provided both applicants and reviewers an opportunity to improve their writing skills, professional development, and understanding of the grants process, as reflected in the outcome measures presented. With a small commitment of time and funding, other institutions could implement a program like this to the benefit of their graduate students.

The techniques can be used, for example, for forming contacts to the gate, source and drain regions of a quantum well transistor fabricated in III-V and SiGe/Ge material systems. Unlike conventional contact process flows which result in a relatively large space between the source/drain contacts to gate, the resulting source and drain contacts provided by the techniques described herein are self-aligned, in that each contact is aligned to the gate electrode and isolated therefrom via spacer material.

Contact effects in graphene nanoribbon transistors.  

PubMed

The effects of the various contact types and shapes on the performance of Schottky barrier graphene nanoribbon field-effect-transistors (GNRFETs) have been investigated using a real-space quantum transport simulator based on the NEGF approach self-consistently coupled to a three-dimensional Poisson solver for treating the electrostatics. The device channel considered is a double gate semiconducting armchair nanoribbon. The types of contacts considered are (a) a semi-infinite normal metal, (b) a semi-infinite graphene sheet, (c) finite size rectangular shape armchair graphene contacts, (d) finite size wedge shape graphene contacts, and (e) zigzag graphene nanoribbon contacts. Among these different contact types, the semi-infinite graphene sheet contacts show the worst performance because of their very low density of states around the Dirac point resulting in low transmission possibility through the Schottky barrier, both at ON and OFF states. Although all other types of contacts can have significant enhancement in I ON to I OFF ratio, the zigzag GNR contacts show promising and size invariant performance due to the metallic properties.

Onset of Sliding in Single Asperity Contacts  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Continuum models of friction often assume that sliding initiates at the edge of a contact, and gradually spreads across the contact. However these partial slip models make simple assumptions about friction laws and must break down at atomic scales. Molecular dynamics simulations are used to analyze the nature of atomistic effects and the variation of partial slip with length scale. In continuum theory there are singularities in tangential force at the edge of the contact that initiate slip. The discrete spacing between atoms and interfacial elasticity reduce these singularities in small contacts. Elastic coupling within the contact also limits partial slip and favors coherent slip across the interface. The variation of these effects with length scale, atomic geometry and the presence of adsorbed monolayers is described.

Nanocomposites: from Space Suites to Space Ships  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Advanced nanocomposites development to facilitate improvements in electrical, thermal and mechanical properties is underway covering polymeric, metallic and ceramic systems. This multifaceted approach provides for cross-fertilization of ideas and innovative approaches in order to develop nanotube composites and hybrids. Basic problems with dispersion, stability, and adaptability have been overcome and a matrix of processing and materials systems is being used to understand a larger picture of interactions and opportunities. A focus on low cost processing has been coupled to an understanding of the future costs of nanotubes to map out near term opportunities for nanotechnology. A roadmap of problems and opportunities has been established that will certainly impact the space industry and future aerospace systems. There will also be a focus in this presentation on the latest advances in nanocomposite materials. This work is supported by the Welch Foundation grant no. C-1494, NASA grant no. NCC9-77, and the state of Texas grant nos. 003599-0010-2001 and 003604-0039-2001.

Grant writing tips for translational research.  

PubMed

All investigators face the same challenge - the highly competitive nature of the grant review process. Innovation alone is not enough to ensure grant supported funding. Applied clinical research requires a diverse collaborative team of investigators with specialized skills, a supportive clinical research environment, and access to clinical material. In addition, ethical limitations, and lack of animal models for many diseases, prevent direct mechanistic experiments that are possible using in vitro systems or animal models. Therefore, specific granting mechanisms and program initiatives target translational research studies. This chapter provides grant writing tips and lists resources that may prove helpful for new investigators seeking research funding in support of translational research, biobanking, and research utilizing molecular biomarkers.

Non-contact measurement of contact wire  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The overhead contact system is the power supply unit of the electric locomotive. This article is to introduce our newly developed method to measure the height and pull out value of the contact wire. A carema dolly which can move on railway is applied to bear the weight of the measure equipment; two linear CCD cameras are installed on the dolly symmetrically about the midline of two rails. While the dolly move along the railway, two CCD cameras grasp the image synchronously, and a computer real-time process the images, the height and pull out value can be calculate out from the images.

Contact force measurements at the head/disk interface for contact recording heads in magnetic recording  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

As the spacing between the magnetic transducer and media decreases in hard disk drives, one approaches the regime of constant contact between the head and disk. In this regime, conventional measures of the head/disk interface such as 'takeoff velocity' and 'fly height' become less important. Instead, the 'contact force' between the head and the disk is a more relevant parameter to evaluate the performance and reliability of the interface. In this paper, a new contact force measurement technique that uses the acoustic emission (AE) from the interface is introduced. The contact force is modeled as a series of continuous collisions that cause the slider to vibrate at its resonant frequencies. These vibrations generate an AE signal, the magnitude of which is proportional to the contact force. The Read-Rite tripad slider, which is a contact recording head, is used for the measurements. Some intuitive expectations from contact force measurements are presented as validation of the technique. Specifically, it is shown that contact force decreases with increasing disk velocity, that the contact force varies inversely with the flying height measured on a glass disk, and that the contact force decreases with burnishing of the interface.

Noneczematous Contact Dermatitis  

PubMed Central

Irritant or allergic contact dermatitis usually presents as an eczematous process, clinically characterized by erythematoedematovesicous lesions with intense itching in the acute phase. Such manifestations become erythematous-scaly as the condition progresses to the subacute phase and papular-hyperkeratotic in the chronic phase. Not infrequently, however, contact dermatitis presents with noneczematous features. The reasons underlying this clinical polymorphism lie in the different noxae and contact modalities, as well as in the individual susceptibility and the various targeted cutaneous structures. The most represented forms of non-eczematous contact dermatitis include the erythema multiforme-like, the purpuric, the lichenoid, and the pigmented kinds. These clinical entities must obviously be discerned from the corresponding “pure” dermatitis, which are not associated with contact with exogenous agents.

Efficient solid rocket propulsion for access to space  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Space launch activity is expected to grow in the next few years in order to follow the current trend of space exploitation for business purpose. Granting high specific thrust and volumetric specific impulse, and counting on decades of intense development, solid rocket propulsion is a good candidate for commercial access to space, even with common propellant formulations. Yet, some drawbacks such as low theoretical specific impulse, losses as well as safety issues, suggest more efficient propulsion systems, digging into the enhancement of consolidated techniques. Focusing the attention on delivered specific impulse, a consistent fraction of losses can be ascribed to the multiphase medium inside the nozzle which, in turn, is related to agglomeration; a reduction of agglomerate size is likely. The present paper proposes a model based on heterogeneity characterization capable of describing the agglomeration trend for a standard aluminized solid propellant formulation. Material microstructure is characterized through the use of two statistical descriptors (pair correlation function and near-contact particles) looking at the mean metal pocket size inside the bulk. Given the real formulation and density of a propellant, a packing code generates the material representative which is then statistically analyzed. Agglomerate predictions are successfully contrasted to experimental data at 5 bar for four different formulations.

Does Gender Matter in Grant Peer Review?  

PubMed Central

One of the most frequently voiced criticisms of the peer review process is gender bias. In this study we evaluated the grant peer review process (external reviewers’ ratings, and board of trustees’ final decision: approval or no approval for funding) at the Austrian Science Fund with respect to gender. The data consisted of 8,496 research proposals (census) across all disciplines from 1999 to 2009, which were rated on a scale from 1 to 100 (poor to excellent) by 18,357 external reviewers in 23,977 reviews. In line with the current state of research, we found that the final decision was not associated with applicant’s gender or with any correspondence between gender of applicants and reviewers. However, the decisions on the grant applications showed a robust female reviewer salience effect. The approval probability decreases (up to 10%), when there is parity or a majority of women in the group of reviewers. Our results confirm an overall gender null hypothesis for the peer review process of men’s and women’s grant applications in contrast to claims that women’s grants are systematically downrated.

The problem has been analyzed with the geometry of a transverse electron focusing (TEF) experiment, and different relations between the contact-to-contact distance L and the mean free path of electrons l. The TEF method permits us to observe the subsurface skin layer formation beginning with very low fields and it allows control of the specular reflectivity of electrons from the metal boundary. If L < l, electrons moving along the surface generate the collector signal for H?L proportional to H. For large contact-to-contact separations (L > l), the charge transfer is mainly accomplished through a diffuse motion of electrons from contact to contact through the bulk of the sample.

The contact caveat: negative contact predicts increased prejudice more than positive contact predicts reduced prejudice.  

PubMed

Contact researchers have largely overlooked the potential for negative intergroup contact to increase prejudice. In Study 1, we tested the interaction between contact quantity and valence on prejudice toward Black Australians (n = 1,476), Muslim Australians (n = 173), and asylum seekers (n = 293). In all cases, the association between contact quantity and prejudice was moderated by its valence, with negative contact emerging as a stronger and more consistent predictor than positive contact. In Study 2, White Americans (n = 441) indicated how much positive and negative contact they had with Black Americans on separate measures. Although both quantity of positive and negative contact predicted racism and avoidance, negative contact was the stronger predictor. Furthermore, negative (but not positive) contact independently predicted suspicion about Barack Obama's birthplace. These results extend the contact hypothesis by issuing an important caveat: Negative contact may be more strongly associated with increased racism and discrimination than positive contact is with its reduction.

Metal-Semiconductor Contacts  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Metal-semiconductor contacts display a range of electrical characteristics from strongly rectifying to ohmic, each having its own applications. The rectifying properties of metal points on metallic sulphides were used extensively as detectors in early radio experiments, while during the second world war the rectifying point contact diode became important as a frequency detector and low level microwave radar detector [1]. Since 1945 the development of metal semiconductor contacts has been stimulated by the intense activity in the field of semiconductor physics and has remained vital in the ohmic connection of semiconductor devices with the outside world. The developments in surface science and the increased use of Schottky barriers in microelectronics has lead to much research with the aim of obtaining a full understanding of the physics of barrier formation and of current transport across the metal-semiconductor interface. Large gain spin electronic devices are possible with appropriate designs by incorporating ferromagnetic layers with semiconductors such as silicon [2]. This inevitably leads to metal-semiconductor contacts, and the impact of such junctions on the device must be considered. In this section we aim to look simply at the physical models that can be used to understand the electrical properties that can arise from these contacts, and then briefly discuss how deviations of these models can occur in practical junctions.

Contact Dermatitis - Epidemiological Study  

PubMed Central

ABSTRACT Aim: To evaluate the real incidence of contact dermatitis, to identify the most common allergens, the favoring factors, to establish the prophylaxis methods, the key for a correct management of the patient with contact dermatitis. Method: A retrospective study, on the patients that refers to the Dermatology Clinic, "St. Spiridon" Emergency Hospital Iasi, between 01.01.2006 and 31.12. 2009, based on demographic items, the type of contact dermatitis and the allergens implicated. Results: we enrolled 353 patients between 2006-2009, representing 3,89% from the hospitalized patients; the study reveals a higher incidence at women (60,27%), similar with data from literature; the majority of the patients was aged over 45, with the higher rate in the interval of 45-65 years old; the most frequent implicated allergens and irritants were plants (26,31% - 92 patients) and topical drugs and antiseptics (25,65% - 89 patients); the area most affected was the face (25%) and the hands (19,07%), from which almost 80-90% was occupational dermatitis. The distribution of cases depending on the type of contact dermatitis indicates an approximate percentage of those allergic to those irritant. Conclusions: The real prevalence of this disease is unknown, being frequently a missed diagnosis (other kinds of eczema), the key of the correct diagnose being a repeated, exhaustive anamnesis, revealing all the favoring conditions and possible contact allergens.

Intergroup contact theory.  

PubMed

Allport specified four conditions for optimal intergroup contact: equal group status within the situation, common goals, intergroup cooperation and authority support. Varied research supports the hypothesis, but four problems remain. 1. A selection bias limits cross-sectional studies, since prejudiced people avoid intergroup contact. Yet research finds that the positive effects of cross-group friendship are larger than those of the bias. 2. Writers overburden the hypothesis with facilitating, but not essential, conditions. 3. The hypothesis fails to address process. The chapter proposes four processes: learning about the outgroup, changed behavior, affective ties, and ingroup reappraisal. 4. The hypothesis does not specify how the effects generalize to other situations, the outgroup or uninvolved outgroups. Acting sequentially, three strategies enhance generalization-decategorization, salient categorization, and recategorization. Finally, both individual differences and societal norms shape intergroup contact effects. The chapter outlines a longitudinal intergroup contact theory. It distinguishes between essential and facilitating factors, and emphasizes different outcomes for different stages of contact. PMID:15012467

Glenohumeral contact forces.  

PubMed

Glenohumeral contact forces have only been calculated previously either for simple abduction or for athletic activities. The objective of this study was to determine the glenohumeral contact forces for tasks which are demanding of the shoulder but which would commonly be performed by older people. The functional tasks chosen were using the arms to stand up from and sit down into a chair, walking with a cane, lifting a 5 kg box to shoulder height with both hands, and lifting a 10 kg suitcase. The trunk angles, arm angles and hand loads of six healthy subjects, average age 55 years, were recorded. This information was input into a biomechanical computer model which optimized the muscle force distribution by minimizing the sum of squared muscle stresses subject to constraints on the maximum muscle forces and maintaining the direction of the resultant force within the glenoid fossa. Average contact forces ranged from 1.3 to 2.4 times body weight (930-1720 N), the highest force being for lifting a suitcase. This latter value would be even higher if lifting either a greater load or to a greater height. Thus, contact forces at the shoulder should not be underestimated. This study provides functionally relevant contact forces which can be used for mechanical testing or finite element modelling of shoulder prostheses. PMID:11201411

Hidden contacts with penicillin*  

PubMed Central

There is much evidence to indicate that the most common cause of drug allergy in recent years has been penicillin, and sensitive patients are warned to avoid treatment with this antibiotic. There are, however, a number of less obvious ways in which the penicillin-sensitive person may be exposed to the risk of contact with this drug, even minute amounts of which have been shown to cause allergic reactions. Four of the main hidden sources of such contact are discussed in detail in this paper.

[Contact allergies in musicians].  

PubMed

During the last years, the problem of allergic diseases has increased. Allergies are errant immune responses to a normally harmless substance. In musicians the allergic contact dermatitis to exotic woods is a special problem. Exotic rosewood contains new flavonoids, which trigger an allergic reaction after permanent contact with the instrument. High quality woodwind instruments such as baroque flute or clarinets are made in ebony or palisander because of its great sound. Today instruments for non-professional players are also made in these exotic materials and non-professionals may have the risk to develop contact dermatitis, too. Brass-player has the risk of an allergic reaction to the different metals contained in the metal sheets of modern flutes and brass instruments. Specially nickel and brass alloys are used to product flute tubes or brass instruments. Special problem arises in children: patients who are allergic to plants or foods have a high risk to develop contact dermatitis. Parents don't know the materials of low-priced instruments for beginners. Often unknown cheap woods from exotic areas are used. Low-priced brass instruments contain high amount of brass and other cheap metals. Physicians should advice musician-patients or parents about the risks of the different materials and look for the reason of eczema on mouth, face, or hands. PMID:23233303

Multigrid contact detection method.  

PubMed

Contact detection is a general problem of many physical simulations. This work presents a O(N) multigrid method for general contact detection problems (MGCD). The multigrid idea is integrated with contact detection problems. Both the time complexity and memory consumption of the MGCD are O(N). Unlike other methods, whose efficiencies are influenced strongly by the object size distribution, the performance of MGCD is insensitive to the object size distribution. We compare the MGCD with the no binary search (NBS) method and the multilevel boxing method in three dimensions for both time complexity and memory consumption. For objects with similar size, the MGCD is as good as the NBS method, both of which outperform the multilevel boxing method regarding memory consumption. For objects with diverse size, the MGCD outperform both the NBS method and the multilevel boxing method. We use the MGCD to solve the contact detection problem for a granular simulation system based on the discrete element method. From this granular simulation, we get the density property of monosize packing and binary packing with size ratio equal to 10. The packing density for monosize particles is 0.636. For binary packing with size ratio equal to 10, when the number of small particles is 300 times as the number of big particles, the maximal packing density 0.824 is achieved. PMID:17500829

Contact: Releasing the news  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The problem of mass behavior after man's future contacts with other intelligences in the universe is not only a challenge for social scientists and political leaders all over the world, but also a cultural time bomb as well. In fact, since the impact of CETI (Contact with Extraterrestrial Intelligence) on human civilization, with its different cultures, might cause a serious socio-anthropological shock, a common and predetermined worldwide strategy is necessary in releasing the news after the contact, in order to keep possible manifestations of fear, panic and hysteria under control. An analysis of past studies in this field and of parallel historical situations as analogs suggests a definite "authority crisis" in the public as a direct consequence of an unexpected release of the news, involving a devastating "chain reaction" process (from both the psychological and sociological viewpoints) of anomie and maybe the collapse of today's society. The only way to prevent all this is to prepare the world's public opinion concerning contact before releasing the news, and to develop a long-term strategy through the combined efforts of scientists, political leaders, intelligence agencies and the mass media, in order to create the cultural conditions in which a confrontation with ETI won't affect mankind in a traumatic way. Definite roles and tasks in this multi-level model are suggested.

Plasticity in fretting contact

The fretting problem of a cyclically loaded cylinder on a flat elastic–plastic surface is analyzed under the assumption of plane strain. Severe fretting conditions are modeled by applying a constant normal load and a cyclic tangential load to the cylinder and describing the contact behavior using a Coulomb friction law. Detailed numerical results are presented for the evolution of plastic

The contact percolation transition  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Typical quasistatic compression algorithms for generating jammed packings of athermal, purely repulsive particles begin with dilute configurations and then apply successive compressions with relaxation of the elastic energy allowed between each compression step. It is well-known that during isotropic compression athermal systems with purely repulsive interactions undergo a jamming transition at packing fraction ?J from an unjammed state with zero pressure to a jammed, rigid state with nonzero pressure. Using extensive computer simulations, we show that a novel second-order-like, contact percolation, which signals the formation of a system-spanning cluster of mutually contacting particles, occurs at ?P< ?J, preceding the jamming transition. By measuring the number of non-floppy modes of the dynamical matrix, the displacement field between successive compression steps, and the overlap between the adjacency matrix, which represents the network of contacting grains, at ? and ?J, we find that the contact percolation transition also heralds the onset of nontrivial response to applied stress. Highly heterogeneous, cooperative, and non-affine particle motion occurs in unjammed systems significantly below the jamming transition for ?P< ?< ?J,

Promoting healthy people 2010 through small grants.  

PubMed

The Department of Health and Human Services initiated a pilot "microgrant" or small grants program in 2001 to promote Healthy People 2010 (HP 2010) implemented by the Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center. This article describes the 103 agencies funded under this initiative and 67 control group agencies. It evaluates the HP 2010 focus areas targeted and the effectiveness of promoting HP 2010 objectives through microgrants. Forty-four percent of the grant recipients and 79% of the control group agencies indicated low levels of familiarity with HP 2010 goals. Changes in knowledge of HP 2010 goals for the microgrant group increased significantly from 5.24 +/- 3.67 to 7.83 +/- 1.86 (p < .05). The results suggest that microgrants can be a useful mechanism to plant the seeds for developing community and organizational capacity to define local health priorities, practice and test new initiatives or expand existing programs and promote knowledge about HP 2010.

SciTech Connect

On January 13, 1993, Governor of the State of Utah, Mike Leavitt officially announced that he was opposing a MRS Facility in the State of Utah and informed San Juan County of his decision which will preclude the County from applying for a Phase IIa feasibility grant. A copy of the policy statement made by Governor Leavitt is included in this report. Additionally, a bill in the State House of Representative has been filed opposing the facility. A copy of the bill is also included. The work accomplished under Phase I, indicated that there was about an equal amount of residents in San Juan County opposed and in favor of the facility. There were many concerns and issues presented during the Phase I grant period that would have been continued to Phase IIa, if allowed, including the citizen committee.
