The phase behavior of the system of parallel rigid triblock copolymers is examined using the second virial density functional theory. The triblock particle consists of two identical infinitely thin hard rods of finite lengths on the opposite ends of one central hard cylinder with nonzero length and diameter. Stability analyses and free energy calculations(More)
We report experimental measurements of the phase behavior of mixtures of thin (charged semiflexible fd virus) and thick (fd-PEG, fd virus covalently coated with polyethylene glycol) rods with diameter ratio varying from 3.7 to 1.1. The phase diagrams of the rod mixtures reveal isotropic-nematic, isotropic-nematic-nematic, and nematic-nematic coexisting(More)
This paper presents a new approach of modeling Video Scenes by adding meaning t o the shape of real world objects and simplifying it. I n order to store shapes and/or motions of objects that appear in real world scenes into the database, expressing the shape and its meaning and handling them ef-j?ciently are indispensable. For that purpose, we introduce a(More)
Citation: Pereira PR, Varga S, Oliveira AC and Soares J (2015) Development and performance of an advanced ejector cooling system for a sustainable built environment. Ejector refrigeration is a promising technology for the integration into solar driven cooling systems because of its relative simplicity and low initial cost. The major drawback of such a(More)
BACKGROUND Studying adolescents' health risk behaviours is oddly significant in Central and Eastern European countries, where the prevalence of smoking and drinking among 14-18 year old students is significantly high. The goal of our study is to examine the role of social psychological and social behavioural variables in health risk behaviours among(More)
The present project aims to present an alternative method for the determination of the inelastic displacements using pushover analysis and directly generated inelastic spectra. The determination of the target displacement is similar to Fajfar`s N2 method, employed in Eurocode 8. Unlike the EC8, where empirical formulas are used for describing the inelastic(More)
INTRODUCTION According to several empirical studies, mental well-being is significant in adolescence; adolescent's social network is undergoing radical changes while at the same time depression is increasing. The primary goal of our study is to determine whether socioeconomic status (SES) is associated with mental health status of Hungarian adolescents and(More)
The fundamental nature of the nematic-nematic phase separation in binary mixtures of rigid hard rods is analyzed within the Onsager second-virial theory and the extension of Parsons and Lee which includes a treatment of the higher-body contributions. The particles of each component are modeled as hard spherocylinders of different diameter , but equal length(More)
The phase behavior of a liquid-crystal forming binary mixture of generic hard rodlike and platelike particles is studied with the theory of Onsager [L. Onsager, Ann. N. Y. Acad. Sci. 51, 627 (1949)] for nematic ordering. The mixture is chosen to be symmetric at the level of the second virial theory, so that the phase behavior of the two pure components is(More)
