Core temperature (CT) in combination with heart rate (HR) can be a good indicator of impending heat exhaustion for occupations involving exposure to heat, heavy workloads, and wearing protective clothing. However, continuously measuring CT in an ambulatory environment is difficult. To address this problem we developed a model to estimate the time course of(More)
We report a study on chemiluminescence-based chemical analyses using luminol molecules covalently attached to 10 nm diameter gold nanoparticles (GNPs). Chemiluminescence (CL) has been systematically studied under two schemes by varying the concentrations of luminol-labeled GNPs and [Fe(CN)6](3-) catalyst, respectively. The CL signal of luminol-labeled GNPs(More)
The research of energy storage systems in the DC link of a machine tool is focused on the choice of the appropriate type of the energy storage system (passive or active) and its control strategy considering better energy efficiency. For the control strategy of the DC/DC converter two ways were taken into account: the proportional-integral and predictive(More)
The physiological burden created by heat strain and physical exercise, also called thermal-work strain, was quantified for 10 male Marines (age 21.9 ± 2.3 years, height 180.3 ± 5.2 cm, and weight 85.2 ± 10.8 kg) during three dismounted missions in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. Heart rate (HR) and core body temperature (T core) were recorded every 15(More)
In this paper we investigate the energy efficiency of processors based on ARM Cortex-A9 cores for scientific numerical applications. We study the performance for a few numerical kernels which appear in a larger set of scientific applications. From power measurements that were performed on different platforms we estimate the energy consumed when executing(More)
The development approach for an energy storage system focuses on optimal sized double-layer capacitor modules to reduce peak power and to avoid malfunctions of production machinery caused by voltage interruptions. The required kind of charging for the energy storage system and adjustment of voltage control parameters was executed for line-side converters of(More)
In the search for uranium-based ionic liquids, tris(N,N-dialkyldithiocarbamato)uranylates have been synthesized as salts of the 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium (C4mim) cation. As dithiocarbamate ligands binding to the UO2(2+) unit, tetra-, penta-, hexa-, and heptamethylenedithiocarbamates, N,N-diethyldithiocarbamate, N-methyl-N-propyldithiocarbamate,(More)
