Heating the Sabin strains of poliovirus at 42 to 45 degrees C caused inactivation, loss of native antigen, and release of the viral RNA (vRNA). The loss of virion infectivity exceeded the loss of vRNA infectivity (as measured by transfection) by roughly 2 log10. Pirodavir inhibited the loss of native antigen and RNA release and reduced the loss of virion(More)
Friction Stir Welding (FSW) is a new technology which joins materials by using frictional heat. In the first part of this thesis, a profound literature study is performed. The basic principles, the robotic implementation and possibilities to use FSW for high strength titanium alloys are examined. In the next phase, a FSW-tool is modelled and implemented on(More)
