In this study, the air-plasma generated by radio-frequency was used to treat bamboo fiber. The treatment parameters were studied to find the suitable condition. The testing on tensile strength, tensile modulus, module Weibull and elongation to break of the fiber, the measurement of contact angles and the SEM analysis showed that at the high frequency of 12 kHz, power 50 W and treatment time of 5 minutes, after air-plasma treatment the tensile strength and tensile modulus of bamboo fiber increased more than double (101.1% and 101.
This textbook is intended as an introduction to the physics of solar and stellar
coronae, emphasizing kinetic plasma processes. It is addressed to observational
astronomers, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates without a background
in plasma physics.
Coronal physics is today a vast field with many different aims and goals. Sorting
out the really important aspects of an observed phenomenon and using the
physics best suited for the case is a formidable problem.
This book is concerned with Ultra-Low-Frequency (ULF)-electromagnetic
waves observed on the Earth and in Space. These are so-called geomagnetic
variations or pulsations. Alfv´en’s discovery related to the influence of the
strong magnetic field on the conducting fluids (magnetohydrodynamics) led
to development of the concept that the ULF-waves are magnetospheric magnetohydrodynamic
MHD-waves at their propagation gather information about the magnetosphere,
ionosphere, and the ground. There are two applied aspects based on
using the ULF electromagnetic oscillations.
Introduction to Space Sciences and Spacecraft Applications explains the fundamentals of design, application, and operation of space-based systems. It focuses on the most common uses of spacecraft today: communications, remote sensing, and navigation. You will learn about the basic systems required by most spacecraft and the methodology used to design a spacecraft. The complexities of orbital mechanics are also fully explained. Amply illustrated with diagrams and photographs, each chapter contains exercises, historical information, and additional reference materials.
-glycoprotein I (b2
GPI), also known as apolipo-protein H, has been implicated in haemostasis and the pro-duction ofanti-phospholipid antibodies. There is a wide
range ofinterindividual variation in b2GPI plasma levels
that is thought to be under genetic control, but itsmolecular
basis remains unknown. To understand the genetic basis of
b2GPI variation, we analyzed the 5¢ flanking region ofthe
b2GPIgene for mutation detection by DHPLC and identi-fied a point mutation at the transcriptional initiation site
()1CfiA) with a carrier frequency of 12.1%. ...
