Corrosion of steel reinforcements is the main cause of damage and early failure of reinforced concrete structures in civil engineering, leading to enormous costs for inspection, maintenance, restoration and replacement of the infrastructure worldwide. Conventional methods for detecting corrosion are based on electrochemical techniques such as half-cell(More)
The need for the creation of the Journal of Automatic Chemistry as Peter Stockwell has implied in his commentary for the first issue has arisen from the interdisciplinary nature of the field of automation. Thus, in contrast to other new journals which are dedicated to narrower and more speialised topics we are encompassing a variety of fields each of which(More)
A complete physical model of ventilated supercavitation is not well established. Efforts documented display the ability, with a finite volume, locally homogeneous approach, to simulate supercavitating flows and obtain good agreement with experiments. Several modeling requirements appear critical, especially in physical hysteretic conditions or(More)
Automation of wet chemical analytical procedures, particularly titration, photometry and chromatography, have wide application in industrial laboratories. Very often some sample pretreatment must be carried out to transfer the sample into a suitable state for the measurement or chromatographic process. In industrial analysis, samples are very often solids(More)
Marine propellers display several forms of cavitation. Of these, propeller-tip vortex cavitation is one of the important factors in propeller design. The dynamic behaviour of the tip vortex is responsible for hull vibration and noise. Thus, cavitation in the vortices trailing from tips of propeller blades has been studied extensively. Under certain(More)
