Development of mechanical device to reduce possibility of damage to motor driven needle valve is discussed. Mechanical clutch is employed to allow slippage when needle valve reaches limit of travel. Operation of system for various conditions is described.
Equilibrium theory of parametric pump using cyclic flow of binary mixture through column with heated and cooled bed of solid absorbent
Cyclic changes in concentration produced in fluid flowing through fixed bed of solid adsorbent, governing separation by beds wave propagation properties
Cotyledon expansion in response to blue light was compared for wild-type Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh. and the mutants blu3 and hy4, which show reduced inhibition of hypocotyl growth in blue light. White, blue, and red light stimulated cotyledon expansion in both intact and excised cotyledons of wild-type seedlings (ecotypes No-0, WS, Co-0, La-er). Cotyledons on intact blu3 and hy4 seedlings did not grow as well as those on the wild type in response to blue light, but pretreatment of blu3 seedlings with low fluence rates of red light increased their responsiveness to blue light. Excision of cotyledons alleviated the mutant phenotype so that both mutant and wild-type cotyledons grew equally well in blue light. The loss of the mutant cotyledon phenotype upon excision indicates that the blu3 and hy4 lesions affect cotyledon expansion i...
Background and purpose: The association between torcetrapib and its off-target effects on blood pressure suggested a possible class-specific effect. The effects of dalcetrapib (RO4607381/JTT-705) and torcetrapib on haemodynamics and the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) were therefore assessed in a rat model. Experimental approach: Arterial pressure (AP) and heart rate were measured by telemetry in normotensive and spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) receiving torcetrapib 10, 40 or 80 mg center dot kg-1 center dot day-1; dalcetrapib 100, 300 or 500 mg-1 center dot kg center dot day-1; or vehicle (placebo) for 5 days. Expression of RAAS genes in adrenal gland, kidney, aorta and lung from normotensive rats following 5 days' treatment with torcetrapib 40 mg center dot kg-1 center dot day-1, dalcetrapib 500 mg center dot kg-1 c...
In the framework of a contract with the European Space Agency, RUAG Space are developing a Coarse Pointing Assembly for an Optical Communication Terminal with the goal to enable high-bandwidth data exchange between GEO and/or LEO satellites as well as to earth-bound ground stations. This paper describes some development and testing aspects of such a high precision opto-mechanical device, with emphasis on the influence of requirements on the final design, the usage of a Bearing Active Preload System, some of the lessons learned on the BAPS implementation, the selection of a flex print design as rotary harness and some aspects of functional and environmental testing.
