—This application paper addresses the use of adaptive predictive control on arc welding trailing centerline temperature control. For tackling the high level of uncertainty in the process the multivariable multipredictive adaptive regulator (MUSMAR) adaptive algorithm, relying on separate estimation of predictive models is used.

The aim of this preliminary study was to verify the antibacterial potential of cetylpyridinium chloride (CPC) in root canals infected by Enterococcus faecalis. Forty human maxillary anterior teeth were prepared and inoculated with E. faecalis for 60 days. The teeth were randomly assigned to the following groups: 1: Root canal preparation (RCP) + 0.1% CPC(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to evaluate the chemical elements composition of root canal filling materials using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and Energy Dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX). METHODS Eighteen standard polyethylene tubes were filled with the following materials: Sealapex(®), Sealer 26(®), MTA Fillapex(®), Pulp Canal Sealer(®),(More)
This work aims at relating some physicochemical features of soils and their use as a tool for prediction of indoor radon concentrations of the Metropolitan Region of Belo Horizonte (RMBH), Minas Gerais, Brazil. The measurements of soil gas radon concentrations were performed by using an AlphaGUARD monitor. The (226)Ra content analysis was performed by gamma(More)
Underground miners are internally exposed to radon, thoron and their short-lived decay products during the mineral processing. There is also an external exposure due to the gamma emitters present in the rock and dust of the mine. However, the short-lived radon decay products are recognised as the main radiation health risk. When inhaled, they are deposited(More)
In this paper, the (222)Rn and (226)Ra activity concentration was measured in groundwater samples collected from the Bauru Aquifer System, São José do Rio Preto city, São Paulo State, Brazil. The site has been selected for a detailed radiometric survey due to the large number of tubular wells drilled in the aquifer there, which provide water for ~70% of the(More)
