Typhoon Haiyan, which struck the Philippines in November 2013, was an extremely intense tropical cyclone that had a catastrophic impact. The minimum central pressure of Typhoon Haiyan was 895 hPa, making it the strongest typhoon to make landfall on a major island in the western North Pacific Ocean. The characteristics of Typhoon Haiyan and its related storm(More)
This paper describes a method for fabricating perfusable vascular channels coated with endothelial cells within a cultured skin-equivalent by fixing it to a culture device connected to an external pump and tubes. A histological analysis showed that vascular channels were constructed in the skin-equivalent, which showed a conventional dermal/epidermal(More)
To quantify the effect of wave breaking turbulence on sediment transport in the nearshore, the vertical distribution of time-averaged suspended sediment concentration (SSC) in the surf zone was parameterized in terms of the turbulent kinetic energy (TKE) at different cross-shore locations, including the bar crest, bar trough, and inner surf zone. Using data(More)
Vessel-like channels fabricated by embedding sacrificial structures in three-dimensional (3D) cellular constructs and then removing the sacrificial structures have been proposed as a means of providing nutrition to the cells. Alginate gel fibers have been used in the design of such channels owing to their flexibility. However, these channels are closed(More)
This study proposes “Ticket method” for a remote copy system in 100km distance multi-site environment to avoid data corruption caused by process and communication overtaking. The method notifies failure event occurred in a primary storage device to a secondary storage device using ticket information. Increase of latency and table size for(More)
A 53-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital because of dropped head. Neurological examination showed no abnormality except for weakness of the neck extensor muscles. Her symptoms worsened in the evening, requiring her to support her head by placing her hand against her chin. Edrophonium and repetitive stimulation tests gave negative results, and(More)
