The diagnosis of heat exchangers on duty with respect to flow mal-distributions needs the development of non-intrusive inlet-outlet experimental techniques in order to perform an online fault diagnosis. Tracer experiments are an example of such techniques. They can be applied to mono-phase heat exchangers but also to multi-phase ones. In this case, the… (More)

These antigens, normally present at the surface of the healthy urothelium, disappear in various degrees in a large number of bladder tumors. Nevertheless, no close correlation exists between this loss of antigens, and the… (More)
