Prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)) affects pulmonary arterial pressure (PAP), pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR), and respiratory rate (RR) in mammals, but no information previously was available regarding avian pulmonary responses to PGE(2). Two experiments were conducted in which 45- to 55-d-old male broiler chickens were infused i.v. with PGE(2) at the lowest(More)
This paper addresses the problem of developing an optimisation structure to aid the operational decision-making of scheduling activities in a real-world pipeline network. During the scheduling horizon, many batches are pumped from (or passing through) different nodes (refineries, harbours or distribution terminals). Pipelines are shared resources operated(More)
This paper addresses the problem of developing an optimisation structure to aid the operational decision-making of scheduling activities in a real-world pipeline network. During the scheduling horizon, many batches are pumped from (or passing through) different areas. Pipes are a disputed resource. Scheduling details must be given, including pumping(More)
This paper presents a novel approach to aid the operational decision-making of scheduling activities in a real-world pipeline, transporting heavy oil derivatives, which are products of less aggregate value, such as fuel oils, e.g. marine fuel. These products present special characteristics that influence their transport as the impossibility of being(More)
