Viewpoints: Feeding mechanics, diet, and dietary adaptations in early hominins
Inference of feeding adaptation in extinct species is challenging, and reconstructions of the paleobiology of our ancestors have utilized an array of analytical approaches. Comparative anatomy and finite element analysis ...
Effects of spaceflight on cells of bone marrow origin
(Turkish Society of Hematology, 2013)
Once only a subject for science fiction novels, plans for establishing habitation on space stations, the Moon, and distant planets now appear among the short-term goals of space agencies. This article reviews studies that ...
Thermal dispersion in porous media - A review on the experimental studies for packed beds
(American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2013)
Thermal dispersion is an important topic in the convective heat transfer in porous media. In order to determine the heat transfer in a packed bed, the effective thermal conductivity including both stagnant and dispersion ...
Local sparse coding control of CVPSTs
(Inderscience Enterprises, 2005)
This paper discusses simulations of a control scheme based on locally sparse coded networks (CMACs) for a novel previously proposed continuously variable transmission (CVT), a hybrid continuously variable power split ...
