A simulation of the organic layer accreted onto interstellar dust particles was prepared by slow deposition of a CO:NH3:H2O gas mixture on an Al block at 10K, with concomitant irradiation with vacuum UV. The residues were analyzed by GC-MS, HPLC, and near IR; a reaction pathway leading from NH3 to complex alcohol, fatty acid, and amide products in 27 stages(More)

This work presents a computational study of flow behaviour in a bubbling fluidized bed. The model is developed by using the commercial CFD code Fluent 6.3. The model is based on an Eulerian description of the gas and the particle phase. Different drag models are used and compared. The computational results are validated against experimental results. The(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Drug-induced liver disease is the leading cause of acute liver failure in the United States. Accurate reporting of drug-induced liver injury is essential for early detection of hepatotoxicity and for developing reliable, interpretable literature. We assessed the extent to which published case reports of drug-induced liver disease include(More)
Artificial Neural Network (ANN) technique has been used for the estimation of precipitation, mainly from passive and active microwave measurements from space. ANN has been used to estimate precipitation using TRMM Microwave Imager (TMI) onboard Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite. A precipitation algorithm designed to generate rainfall(More)
