Accurate heat transfer models of continuous casting require accurate measurements to characterize the boundary conditions, temperature and alloy-dependent thermal properties, optimization of numerical errors caused by model discretization, and validation with plant measurements. Recent efforts of an international collaboration on all of these aspects are(More)
The use of synthetic dyes for laccase induction in vivo has been scarcely explored. We characterized the effect of adding different synthetic dyes to liquid cultures of Pycnoporus sanguineus on laccase production. We found that carminic acid (CA) can induce 722 % and alizarin yellow 317 % more laccase than control does, and they promoted better fungal(More)
The aim was to determine which specific regions of the visible light spectrum were responsible for the induction or inhibition of laccase in Pycnoporus sanguineus. Cultures were exposed to various bandwidth lights: blue (460 nm), green (525 nm), white (a combination of 460 and 560 nm), red (660 nm), and darkness. The results indicate that short wavelengths(More)
