Applied Sciences, Vol. 2, Pages 558-565: Special Feature Organo-Fluorine Chemical Science

Fluorine is the 13th most abundant element and, with other fluorine containing functional groups, is a most effective element in biological substances, pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, liquid crystals, dyes, polymers and a wide range of consumer products. T ...

Applied Sciences, Vol. 2, Pages 629-640: Numerical Observation of the Jet Flight Patterns of Linear Shaped Charges

Linear Shaped Charges (LSCs) have been assumed to function in the same manner as Conical Shaped Charges (CSCs) in the published literature that describes a metallic jet process for penetration. However, based on the facts that the LSC liner is composed of ...

Applied Sciences, Vol. 2, Pages 584-601: Assessment of Heavy Metal Contamination of Agricultural Soil around Dhaka Export Processing Zone (DEPZ), Bangladesh: Implication of Seasonal Variation and Indices

Intense urbanization, large scale industrialization and unprecedented population growth in the last few decades have been responsible for lowering environmental quality. Soil contamination with metals is a serious concern due to their toxicity and ability ...

Applied Sciences, Vol. 2, Pages 669-681: Non-Stoichiometry and Calphad Modeling of Frank-Kasper Phases

One of the many singularities of Frank-Kasper phases is their ability to accommodate extremely large composition ranges by atom mixing on the different sites of the crystal structures. This phenomenon will be reviewed in the present paper with special emph ...

Applied Sciences, Vol. 2, Pages 654-668: Ab Initio Study of Lattice Site Occupancies in Binary Sigma Phases Using a Single-Site Mean Field Model

The site occupation of binary Fe-Cr, Co-Cr, Re-W and Fe-V sigma phases is studied in the present work with a first-principles-based single-site mean field theory. We show that the alloy components in these systems exhibit similar site preferences except fo ...

Applied Sciences, Vol. 2, Pages 780-800: A Design Fuzzy Logic Controller for a Permanent Magnet Wind Generator to Enhance the Dynamic Stability of Wind Farms

In this paper, a design fuzzy logic controller for a variable speed permanent magnet wind generator connected to a grid system through a LC-filter is proposed. A new current control method of grid side conversion is developed by integrating the fuzzy contr ...

Applied Sciences, Vol. 2, Pages 738-753: Ethanol Production from Waste Potato Mash by Using Saccharomyces Cerevisiae

Bio-ethanol is one of the energy sources that can be produced by renewable sources. Waste potato mash was chosen as a renewable carbon source for ethanol fermentation because it is relatively inexpensive compared with other feedstock considered as food sou ...

Applied Sciences, Vol. 2, Pages 726-737: Feasibility Study of Energy Storage Systems in Wind/Diesel Applications Using the HOMER Model

With an increased focus on solutions to the ensuing “climate crisis”, the need for energy storage systems is becoming increasingly important as a means to increase the penetration of renewable technologies such as wind energy. The Vanadium Redox Battery is ...

Applied Sciences, Vol. 2, Pages 709-725: Performance Evaluation of a Lithium-Chloride Absorption Refrigeration and an Assessment of Its Suitability for Biomass Waste Heat

This paper presents a computer model that will evaluate the performance of a thermo-chemical accumulator. The model is based on operational data such as temperatures and flow rates. The ultimate goal for this model is to estimate the coefficient of perform ...

Applied Sciences, Vol. 2, Pages 816-830: Broadband Spectral Amplitude Control in High-Order Harmonic Generation

A technique for broadband spectral amplitude control of light pulses produced in high-order harmonic generation (HHG) is presented. It has been shown elsewhere that broadband spectral phase control in HHG is achievable using a computerized feedback loop sc ...

Applied Sciences, Vol. 2, Pages 801-815: Power Management System for Load Banks Supplied by Pitch Controlled Wind Turbine System

An automatic power management system, to monitor the distribution of power to a set of load banks, is presented in this paper. The required power is generated from a laboratory-size pitch-controlled wind turbine experimental workstation. The management sys ...

Applied Sciences, Vol. 3, Pages 39-54: Field Deployable Fiber Bragg Grating Strain Patch for Long-Term Stable Health Monitoring Applications

A fiber Bragg grating (FBG) strain patch specially adapted for long-term and high-strain applications has been developed and characterized. The design concept for the patch is based on a glass-fiber reinforced plastic (gfrp) carrier material. The developed ...

Applied Sciences, Vol. 3, Pages 55-69: Glycerol: A promising Green Solvent and Reducing Agent for Metal-Catalyzed Transfer Hydrogenation Reactions and Nanoparticles Formation

Glycerol is a non-toxic, non-hazardous, non-volatile, biodegradable, and recyclable liquid that is generated as a byproduct in the manufacture of biodiesel fuel from vegetable oils. Due to its easy availability, along with its unique combination of physica ...

Applied Sciences, Vol. 3, Pages 70-93: Direct Electron Acceleration with Radially Polarized Laser Beams

In the past years, there has been a growing interest in innovative applications of radially polarized laser beams. Among them, the particular field of laser-driven electron acceleration has received much attention. Recent developments in high-power infrare ...

Applied Sciences, Vol. 3, Pages 107-121: An Appropriate Wind Model for Wind Integrated Power Systems Reliability Evaluation Considering Wind Speed Correlations

Adverse environmental impacts of carbon emissions are causing increasing concerns to the general public throughout the world. Electric energy generation from conventional energy sources is considered to be a major contributor to these harmful emissions. Hi ...

Applied Sciences, Vol. 3, Pages 122-138: Generation of Phase-Stable Sub-Cycle Mid-Infrared Pulses from Filamentation in Nitrogen

Sub-single-cycle pulses in the mid-infrared (MIR) region were generated through a laser-induced filament. The fundamental (ω1) and second harmonic (ω2) output of a 30-fs Ti:sapphire amplifier were focused into nitrogen gas and produce phase-stable broadban ...

Applied Sciences, Vol. 3, Pages 153-167: Pulse Compression of Ultrashort UV Pulses by Self-Phase Modulation in Bulk Material

The bandwidth of ultrafast pulses in the UV is limited by the finite acceptance bandwidth of the nonlinear crystals used for their generation. For fundamental laser pulses it is well established that spectral broadening can be used to overcome intrinsic ba ...

Applied Sciences, Vol. 3, Pages 675-683: Dry Distillation of Radioiodine from TeO2 Targets

As medical cyclotrons are becoming more abundant, 123I and 124I are getting more attention as alternatives to 131I for diagnostics of thyroid disease. Both 123I and 124I provide better diagnostics, deliver less dose to patients and both reduce the risk of ...

Journal Room

Peer-reviewed research articles are not included in the Health Well's catalogues which principally focus on "grey literature". 

On this page you will find summaries of research articles published in Open Access Journals and drawn down by RSS feeds from those journals . These journals cover about a quarter of all peer-reviewed journal articles and so are not comprehensive. In addition, the Health Well's topic-managers supplement these summaries with research articles from topic-related online journals.

The journal articles accessible on the Health Well website have been compiled from various sources that are not controlled by the Institute of Public Health in Ireland (IPH). IPH is therefore not responsible for the content of external websites and the inclusion of a link to an external website from the Health Well should not be understood to be an endorsement of that website.
