Finite element post-processing has been dominated by software that is tightly integrated with simulation packages. Many of these packages have not kept up with the state-of-the-art developments in graphics technology and visualization techniques. Especially the large and time-dependent data sets resulting from crash-worthiness simulations in the automotive(More)
Between January 1993 and November 1994 a total of 1300 red foxes from the administrative districts Halle and Dessau were examined for the presence of nematodes in the stomach and the small intestine. The following nematodes were found: Toxocara canis (26.5%), Toxascaris leonina (10.5%), Uncinaria stenocephala (15.9%) Ancylostoma caninum (1.7%). The search(More)
The aim of this investigation was to examine whether the treatment of bitches with doramectin is able to prevent pre-natal and galactogenic infections with Toxocara canis in their pups. Five experimentally infected beagle bitches were treated subcutaneously with 1 mg doramectin per kg body weight on each of days 40 and 55 of their pregnancy. Another(More)
The efficacy of doramectin treatment on arrested A. caninum larvae during early pregnancy of bitches was examined. Four bitches were percutaneously infected with 20,000 third-stage larvae of A. caninum on the day of conception and treated subcutaneously with 1 mg doramectin per kg body weight on day 30 of pregnancy. Four infected untreated pregnant bitches(More)
From January 1995 to December 1995, 991 muskrats were examined for the occurrence and the regional prevalence of nematodes and trematodes. The muskrats were trapped in all parts of Lower Saxony. 77.2% of the studied population were less than one year old, 22.8% were older. The male to female ratio was 54.5% to 45.5%. One genus of nematodes, Trichuris spp.,(More)
1. Description of the application area The advances in computer graphics technology plus the increased complexity of nite element (FE) simulations of the crash behavior of a car body have resulted in the need for new visualization techniques to facilitate the analysis of such engineering computations. Our VR system VtCrash provides novel computer-human(More)
Numerical finite element simulations of the behavior of a car body in frontal, side or rear impact collision scenarios have become increasingly complex as well as reliable and precise. They are well established as a standard evaluation tool in the automotive development process. Both, the increased complexity plus the advances in computer graphics(More)

Between January 1993 and November 1994 a total of 1300 red foxes from the administrative districts Halle and Dessau were examined for the presence of Echinococcus multilocularis and other cestodes. Echinococcus multilocularis-infections were detected in only 4 of 1300 (0.3%) foxes. Furthermore the following cestodes were found: Mesocestoides spp. (54.1%),(More)
Aim of the study was to examine the prevalence and regional distribution of Echinococcus multilocularis and other metacestodes and cestodes in muskrats in Lower Saxony, Germany. A total of 991 muskrats with similar numbers from all districts of the country were examined between January and December 1995. E. multilocularis metacestodes were found in 4.1% of(More)
