Effect of liquid nitrogen pretreatment on various types of wool waste fibres for biogas production
(Elsevier, 201804)This study investigated the role of liquid nitrogen (LN2) in increasing microbial accessibility of wool proteins for biogas production. It involves a mechanical size reduction of four different types of raw wool fibres, ... 
The Effect of Variations in Ionic Conductance Values on the Suppression of Repetitive Spiking in a Mathematical Model of TypeA Medial Vestibular Nucleus Neurons
(Scientific Research Publishing, 201606)A previous study has proposed a mathematical model of typeA medial vestibular nucleus neurons (mVNn). This model is described by a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations, which is based on the HodgkinHuxley ... 
Effects of Orbital Motion on the Boundary Layer Flow on a Spinning Disk
(Scientific Research, 201212)The objective of this study is to experimentally examine the effects of orbital motion on the boundary layer flow on a spinning disk. The boundary layer flow on the disk is visualized by the oil flow method, and velocity ... 
Elementary Thermal Operations
(201802)To what extent do thermodynamic resource theories capture physically relevant constraints? Inspired by quantum computation, we define a set of elementary thermodynamic gates that only act on 2 energy levels of a system ... 
Estimating a Falsified Model
(Scientific Research Publishing, 201607)It is common econometric practice to propose a system of equations, termed the “structure,” estimate each endogenous variable in the structure via a linear regression with all of the exogenous variables as arguments, and ... 
Exact solutions for nonlinear integropartial differential equations using the generalized Kudryashov method
(Elsevier, 201710)In this research, we construct the traveling wave solutions for some nonlinear evolution equations in mathematical physics. New solutions such as soliton solutions are found. The method used is the generalized Kudryashov ... 
Experimental and Numerical Investigations on PlateType Heat Exchanger Performance
(Scientific Research, 201503)Lowgrade Thermal Energy Conversion (LTEC) is a potential source of renewable energy. One of its forms is the Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) in which the temperature difference between the warm surface water and ... 
Experimental Research on Damage Parameter of Concrete in NonUniform Stress Field
(201106)The damage variables of describing the material damage state should be chosen first when the research of concrete structures by use of theory of damage theory. The method of calculation of damage parameter by the measure ...

(201202)In this work, the estimation of crack initiation life of a hydraulic Francis turbine runner is presented. The life prediction is based on the local strain approach to predict the initiation life. First, the analysis is ... 
A Finite Element Approximation of the Stokes Equations
(201112)In this work, a numerical solution of the incompressible Stokes equations is proposed. The method suggested is based on an algorithm of discretization by the unstable of Q1 – P0 velocity/pressure finite element ... 
Flexible perovskite based Xray detectors for dose monitoring in medical imaging applications
(Elsevier, 201806)Organometallic halide perovskite materials are attracting considerable interest for high performance photovoltaic and photodetector applications due to their exceptional optoelectronic properties and easy processing ... 
A Foundation for Lorentz Force Based on Vibrating Strings as a Compact Fluid
(Scientific research, 201408)Several aspects related with Lorentz force are discussed in the light of the presence of vibrating strings. Strings are considered as a compact, tension and viscosityfree incompressible liquid. The motion of a charge ... 
A hypothesis of series resonance in the white matter for understanding the mechanism of spikewave seizures
(Elsevier, 201803)Generalized epilepsy is accompanied by largeamplitude synchronized spikewave discharges on electroencephalography. The condition rapidly and synchronously involves most regions of the brain, but the mechanism underlying ... 
Impact of the Housing on the Air Flow and the Thermal Behavior of an Automotive Clutch System
(Scientific Research, 201503)New directives and increasing competition push automakers to get better performances (engine power increase), along with mass and size reduction (consumption). These evolutions lead to an increase of the thermal solicitations ...

Integration by parts identities in integer numbers of dimensions. A criterion for decoupling systems of differential equations
(Elsevier, 201512)Integration by parts identities (IBPs) can be used to express large numbers of apparently different ddimensional Feynman Integrals in terms of a small subset of socalled master integrals (MIs). Using the IBPs one can ... 
LiFi is a paradigmshifting 5G technology
(Elsevier, 201811)In this paper we will first explain what LightFidelity (LiFi) is and argue that it is a 5th Generation (5G) technology. Peak transmission speeds of 8 Gbps from a single light source have been demonstrated, and complete ... 
Linear, Cubic and Quintic CoordinateDependent Forces and Kinematic Characteristics of a SpringMass System
