Analysis of crack propagation in a “pull-out” test

out the anchor for any material and for any length of anchoring. The HILTI HDA-P M20x250/100 anchor was adopted for pull-out tests. with anchoring length of 25 cm will be used ( “European Technical Assessment…” ), the picture of this anchor is shown in Fig. 1 . Figure 1 Pre-set undercut Hilti HDA-P anchor. To mount this anchor, it is placed in a prepared hole in the anchored surface. Then, a drill is attached to the anchor, and while drilling, the anchor undercuts itself with deflecting elements. Scheme of mounting the anchor is shown in Fig. 2

Diagnosis of mitral insufficiency using impedance cardiography technique ICG

-cardiography, especially the Doppler echocardiography [ 25 , 26 , 27 ]. However, this technique is expensive and often not necessary for making a diagnosis [ 28 ]. Otherwise, there are few studies, which discussed the ability of the impedance cardiography method to diagnose Mitral Insufficiency. Karnegis et al . have calculated an index from the ICG tracings, which may be useful in identifying patients with mitral regurgitation [ 29 ]. Schieken et al . have determined a mitral regurgitation fraction that is the ratio of the areas of the first systolic and diastolic waves [ 30

Possibilities in the application of machine learning on bioimpedance time-series

presenting and analyzing bioimpedance data. The advantage in machine learning methods is the possibility of learning generalizable predictive patterns in combining variables in a non-linear fashion, possibly increasing the predictive performance compared to simpler models. In addition, machine learning can be used to perform automatic feature extraction, useful when there is a lot of variables (e.g. different immittance parameters over many frequencies) and the important ones are not known. In some cases, such as clinical monitoring, the prediction performance is

Hydraulic Characterization of a Self-Weight Compacted Coal

1 Introduction The stocks of coal are crucial areas of coal-fired power plants, in terms of safety, optimization of energy storage and environmental implications (e.g., [ 1 ], [ 2 ]). Although they are now usually protected from rain and wind by storage structures or more simply by coating with tarpaulins, in many old plants in the world these stocks are still exposed to natural climatic conditions such as rain. This climatic condition could allow the air pollution with fine coal particles, as close to mining areas (e.g., [ 3 ]), and leaching processes due to
