    Control of thermo magnetic heat transfer in porous cavity with Baffle(s)

    , Article ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition, Proceedings, 13 November 2009 through 19 November 2009 ; Volume 9, Issue PART A , 2010 , Pages 627-631 ; 9780791843826 (ISBN) Heidary, H ; Davoudi, M ; Pirmohammadi, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Steady, laminar, natural-convection flow in the presence of a magnetic field in a porous cavity heated from left wall sinusoidally and cooled from right wall is considered. It is well known that unavoidable hydrodynamic movements can be damped with the help of a magnetic field. The Finite Volume method and SIMPLE algorithm for discretizing is used to solve the non-dimensional governing equations. The Convection and Diffusion term of the equations are discretized by Central Difference Scheme (CDS).The numerical procedure has been done over a range of Rayleigh number, Ra, and value of Hartmann number (Ha), 0 ≤ Ha ≤ 150 and effect of them is investigated on average and local Nusselt number.... 

    Electrochemical degradation of clindamycin by anodic oxidation on SnO2-Sb coated titanium anodes

    Degradation of Clindamycin phosphate (CMP) was studied in aqueous solutions by an anodic oxidation process under galvanostatic conditions. The electrolysis cell consisted of a Ti/SnO2-Sb anode, prepared by dip-coating technique, and a 316 stainless steel cathode, both of which had a surface area of 6 cm2. The effects of critical factors, including CMP concentration, current density, initial pH, and the supporting electrolyte were evaluated. The electrochemical oxidation of CMP was controlled by mass transport within the studied range. The kinetic analysis indicated that the degradation reactions followed pseudo-first-order equation. The rate of CMP decay, as well as that of COD removal,... 

    Biomechanical analysis of the pelvis angular excursion in sagittal plane in response to asymmetric leg loading tasks in females with and without nonspecific chronic low back pain

    Background: Controlling pelvic excursions is the focus of stabilization exercises such as legs loading tasks in rehabilitation of non-specific chronic low back pain (NSCLBP) patients. Progression of these exercises is based on the ability to perform tasks with minimal sagittal pelvic excursions. In spite of emphasis on minimizing pelvic motions, no previous studies have investigated kinematic analysis of the pelvic excursions during leg loading exercises in NSCLBP patients. Objective: This study aims to investigate the sagittal pelvis excursion during performing asymmetric leg loading tasks in individuals with and without NSCLBP. Material and Methods: In this cross-sectional study, kinematic...

    Central nervous system (CNS) uses vision, vestibular, and somatosensory information to maintain body stability. Research has shown that there is more lumbar proprioception error among low back pain (LBP) individuals as compared to healthy people. In this study, two groups of 20 healthy people and 20 non-specific low back pain (NSLBP) participants took part in this investigation. This investigation focused on somatosensory sensors and in order to alter proprioception, a vibrator (frequency of 70 Hz, amplitude of 0.5 mm) was placed on the soleus muscle area of each leg and two vibrators were placed bilaterally across the lower back muscles. Individuals, whose vision was occluded, were placed...
