In order to avoid carbon dioxide (CO2) built up in the atmosphere, the major source of global warming, CO2 capture must be applied to large point sources including natural gas processing. Membrane process, a relatively new technology among other available techniques, can be used for the purpose of CO2 capture from natural gas. Over the decades, the membrane(More)
Ornithine transcarbamylase deficiency is the commonest urea cycle disorder which is transmitted in X-linked inheritance. It is mainly characterized in males by acute encephalopathy and hyperammonaemia with fatal outcomes in both classical neonatal and late-onset types. We report a 3-year-old healthy Hong Kong Chinese boy who presented with acute(More)
Although the presence of local minima is one of the major problems in high-dimensional image registration, only a few experimental works have been carried out to address this problem. In this study, a 3D-2D vascular image feature-based registration is done by producing Digital Reconstructed Radiographs (DRRs) of 3D images to match against the target 2D(More)
Carbon dioxide is one of the major green house gases. It is removed from different streams using amine absorption process. Sterically hindered amines are suggested as good CO2 absorbers. Solubility of carbon dioxide (CO2) was measured in aqueous solutions of 2-Amino-2-methyl-1-propanol (AMP) at temperatures 30 C, 40 C and 60 C. The effect of pressure and(More)
Numerous analyses on the mass transfer phenomena and hydrodynamics for the fluid adjacent to the membrane have been studied and visualized by computational fluid dynamics (CFD) mathematical modeling and simulation. The availability of CFD simulation study to reveal the concentration polarization profile in the membrane channel, which considering(More)
This study introduced a novel but simple method to continuously measure footstrike patterns in runners using inexpensive force sensors. Two force sensing resistors were firmly affixed at the heel and second toe of both insoles to collect the time signal of foot contact. A total of 109 healthy young adults (42 males and 67 females) were recruited in this(More)
