UNLABELLED Background. Several authors have examined the risk for sexually transmitted infections (STI), but no study has yet analyzed it solely in relation with sexual behaviour in women. We analyzed the association of sexual behaviour with STI risk in female university students of healthcare sciences. Methods. We designed a cross-sectional study assessing(More)
This article presents a parametric approach to the optimal nonlinear control problem. This contribution is based on reducing the nonlinear optimal control problem to a sequence of linear time-varying ones and approaching the desired optimal control by a sequence of linear algebraic equations. This approach provides a solution which can be obtained in a(More)
This paper studies the influence of road camber on the stability of single-track road vehicles. Road camber changes the magnitude and direction of the tire force and moment vectors relative to the wheels, as well as the combined-force limit one might obtain from the road tires. Camber-induced changes in the tire force and moment systems have knock-on(More)
This paper characterizes the existence and form of the possible limit error signals in typical parameter-optimal Iterative Learning Control. The set of limit errors has attracting and repelling components and the behaviour of the algorithm in the vicinity of these sets can be associated with the undesirable properties of apparent (but in fact temporary)(More)
In 2014, we assessed the effectiveness of Medical Taping Concept (MTC) in Primary Dysmenorrhoea (PD) with a single-blind, two-armed clinical trial (NCT02114723, ClinicalTrials.gov) with a follow-up of 4 menstrual cycles (pre-intervention: 2 months; post-intervention: 2 months) in a sample formed by 129 Spanish women aged 18-30 years with PD. We had two(More)
Burst oscillations can arise in racing motorcycles under a combination of high speeds, low roll angles and firm acceleration. This bursting occurs at weave-mode frequencies under conditions that cause the classical wobble and weave modes interact. Under race conditions this phenomenon can undermine rider confidence, and is consequently detrimental to lap(More)
In this paper, an intelligent control approach based on Neuro-Fuzzy systems performance is presented with the objective of counteracting the vibrations that affect the low-cost vision platform onboard an unmanned aerial system of rotating nature. A scaled dynamical model of a helicopter is used to simulate vibrations on its fuselage. The impact of these(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE In the literature about primary dysmenorrhea (PD), either a pain gradient has been studied just in women with PD or pain was assessed as a binary variable (presence or absence). Accordingly, we decided to carry out a study in young women to determine possible factors associated with intense pain. DESIGN A cross-sectional observational(More)
