OBJECT There has been increasing interest in spinous process tension band devices, as distinct from spinous process spacers and plates. The purpose of this study was to load spinous processes caudally at L-4 and cranially at L-5 parallel to the long axis of the spine in a biomechanical model of tension band loading. The goal was to provide normative data(More)
Malignant pleural mesothelioma is associated with poor prognosis and despite recent advances in chemotherapy, the median survival is still approximately 12 months. Loss of phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) protein expression may lead to constitutive activation of AKT resulting in cell survival and proliferation. Small studies reported that PTEN protein(More)

Conveying hard and the abrasive materials has been one of the major operational problems in industrial situations. The erosion of plant components, especially the pipe bends by abrasive solid particles of a fluid stream makes installation of pneumatic conveying systems a very costly affair for industry. Most users have either lived with the problem or have(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)
A cross sectional study was conducted during May-June 2010 among woman of reproductive age group (15-45 years) in the urban and the rural areas of Bareilly District to asses the level of awareness regarding RTIs/STDs. The two stage cluster sampling technique was adopted. A structured questionnaire was used to interview the study participants during the(More)
