In addition to the primary destruction of brain tissue readily visible at autopsy (permanent track), gunshot wounding to the brain creates a pulsating temporary cavity due to radial expansion along the bullet's track. To determine the maximum extent of this temporary cavitation in brains of victims of gunshots from weapons with low muzzle velocity, we(More)
To determine the value of imaging procedures such as computer tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the head in providing additional information of forensic relevance, we examined 17 cadavers of human victims of gunshot wounds to the head. Three of the victims briefly survived the gunshot wound. The weapons involved were all guns with low(More)
This paper deals with the use of predictive optimal control techniques for flow management in a large water system including reservoirs, open channels for water transport, water treatment plants, pressurized water pipe networks, flow/pressure control elements and a telemetry/telecontrol system. Predictive control is used to generate flow control strategies(More)
We have studied binary two-dimensional (2D) mixtures of superparamagnetic colloidal particles interacting through magnetic dipole moments, which were induced by an external magnetic field B. By tuning B the effective system temperature could be widely adjusted. Time-dependent particle coordinates measured by video-microscopy provide radial pair-distribution(More)
In the main synchrotron of the FAIR project, SIS100, accelerating voltages up to 450 kV are required. [1,2]. In parallel with the studies on MA cavities conventional ferrite-loaded cavities are studied as an alternative for the needed accelerating system. In ferrite-tuned cavities, the maximum accelerating voltage is most often strongly restricted by the(More)
For several ion species, the peak intensities reached in the previous years could be reproduced in 2010. Especially the intensity of U 73+-beams could be slightly increased up to 6x10 9 ions per cycle. For several lighter ions (e.g. for Ar, N) SIS18 has been operated close to the space charge limit. Figure 1 shows the maximum intensity per cycle achieved(More)
Experimental studies have shown that diffuse axonal injury is usually induced by positive or negative acceleration mechanisms. In order to determine the reliability of axonal injury (AI) as a marker of this type of traumatic insult, we compared cases of trauma-induced focal cortical hemorrhage without dural involvement (n = 67) with cases of trauma-induced(More)
