Using a flow model that simulated the inferior vena cava (IVC), the authors conducted an in vitro comparison of the Mobin-Uddin (MU), Kimray-Greenfield (KG), Amplatz spider (A), Günther basket (G), Simon nitinol (SN), and bird's nest (BN) filters. The following parameters were evaluated: clot-trapping capacity and flow dynamics, which included measurements(More)
This article examines the thermal decomposition of alpha-cypermethrin, one of the most common pyrethroid pesticides. The objective was to identify its decomposition pathways and to gain an understanding into the formation of toxic species in the environment, including those that may behave in combustion systems, especially in fires in the environment, as(More)
In this paper, we study the performance of a testing apparatus that could be used for evaluating the effectiveness of gaseous suppressants and solid fuel retardants under opposed flame spread conditions. A narrow channel, 3 mm in height, 110 mm in width and 375 mm in length, constitutes the most important component of this apparatus. To establish the flow(More)
