Taschenbuch. Neuware - Hemodialysis is the most common method used to treat advanced and permanent kidney failure. When kidney function decreases: Blood pressure is increased due to fluid overload and production of vasoactive hormones created by the kidney via the renin-angiotensin system, increasing one's risk of developing hypertension and/or suffering from congestive heart failure. Exercise training performed either during or in between haemodialysis sessions improved VO2 max.Material and methods: A non experimental, Questionnaire and interview based study was performed among the dialysis patients, nephrologists and physiotherapist. 3 Questionnaires were used for the study.study shows that burden of kidney disease and work status significantly affected in haemodialytic patients and accounts for low quality of life. Pacing activities was the most preferred choice of treatment for fatigue in dialysis patients while few preferred giving rest as well.The quality of life in dialysis patients was poor in few domains of kidney disease quality of life-short form questionnaire which included the burden of kidney disease, work status, sleep and associated symptoms. 104 pp. Englisch.

Taschenbuch. Neuware - Scientific Study from the year 2017 in the subject Engineering - Mining Engineering, grade: 2.0, Technical University of Clausthal (Department of waste disposal and Geomechanics), course: Applied rock mechanics, language: English, abstract: Determining the stresses that exist in the rock mass opening has been a significant area of research in mining for a long time. The main reason for this is the concern of roof collapse of the excavation due to overlying pressure from the rock mass. This thesis is concerned with the state of stresses that exist in the rock mass in 2 conditions: 1. Stresses in rock before the mine openings; 2. Altered state of stresses after the excavations are made.Theories have been formulated to calculate the pre-stressed state of the rock mass. But any sort of measurement invalidates the original condition of the intact rock. There are mainly 3 ways to study these different stress conditions in the rock mass: Analytical solutions using pre-defined mathematical equations; using numerical modelling to predict the stresses by duplicating the in-situ stress conditions; and in-situ measurements of the stress conditions in the rock mass. One of the first assumptions taken while doing the measurements is assume that the rock mass is elastic and homogenous (single layer). There are also assumptions where the rock is considered viscous, plastic or a combination of these. But for this research project, the first assumption is considered. This is done to ease up the subsequent calculations on the more complex characteristics of the rock mass. In this research project, the attempt is to do a comparison of the initial and final stressed conditions of the rock mass in a series of square and circular drifts between the analytical and the numerical solutions of the model. It must be noted that a completely accurate picture of the stress phenomena cannot be drawn because of the lack of knowledge of the physical properties of rock under field conditions. The purpose of the project is to compare numerically calculated loading behavior of rock mass to that of analytical solutions obtained from the same. 40 pp. Englisch. Neu. Artikel-Nr.: 9783668581906.

Taschenbuch. Neuware - Transparent conducting oxides (TCO) are well known for their unique opto electrical property and technologically been used in thin film form for more than 50 years as essential components of many optoelectronic devices such as flat panel displays, transistors, sensors, liquid crystal displays, solar cells, energy efficient window system etc.Various deposition techniques like CVD, PVD, spray pyrolysis, etc are usually adopted for its fabrication. Sol-gel deposition of TCO thin films is nowadays one of the most promising technologies because it is relatively less expensive and easy to adopt. This book contains a brief overview of TCOs, their structural feature, electrical and optical properties, thermal emittance, conduction mechanism, sol-gel fabrication along with a brief literature survey on the earlier work of TCO films. 68 pp. Englisch.

Taschenbuch. Neuware - In this book, we have proposed a novel noise removal method of PCG signals using robust feature space optimization. The proposed method identifies the noisy PCG signals and eliminates them to ensure effective clinical analytics. We depict more than 85% accuracy and high specificity of identifying noisy PCG signals while experimenting over annotated PCG datasets from large publicly available MIT-Physionet database. We have also shown that propose noise removal has the capability to significantly improve the clinical utility like detection of cardiac normal/ abnormal condition from heart sound or PCG signals. 88 pp. Englisch.

Taschenbuch. Neuware - Master's Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Engineering - Power Engineering, University of South Wales, course: Masters in Renewable Energy and Resource Management, language: English, abstract: Reducing our dependence on fossil fuels and minimising the emission of greenhouse gas is the main challenge of the time. Biogas is the one of the fastest growing renewable energy sources in the world and the purpose of the research presented in this thesis is to explore the prospect of techno-economic feasibility of Anaerobic Digestion of water hyacinth. Biogas production could be from various kinds of organic material. However, a substantial share of the biogas potential seems untapped within the agricultural sector like crop residues, weeds and dedicated biogas crops. Water hyacinth can prove to be one such cash crop for biogas or bio-energy as a whole. In addition, the techno-economic performance of water hyacinth seems to be very favourable since the cost of feedstock is almost nil except the cost of harvesting and transportation. To make it more viable, measures like further research in production technique needed to increase methane yield and reduction of the related cost of operation and maintenance. Formulation of proper legislation and incentives from the Government could encourage investors to consider such project for implementation. The findings of the experiment conducted on the samples collected from West Bengal, India are encouraging. The fibre analysis revealed a reasonable quantity of Cellulose, hemicelluloses and lignin. The volatile fatty acid (VFA) predicts a healthy fermentation status. The methane yield is substantial for using water hyacinth as a potential biomass for anaerobic digestion. The chemical oxygen demand (COD), the protein content, the carbohydrate content and pH values are very favourable for anaerobic digestion. From the Net Present value (NPV) and Internal Return ratio (IRR) it can be inferred that with the financial assistance from the Government biogas from water hyacinth could be a feasible project. 76 pp. Englisch.

Buch. Neuware - Indirect questioning is a crucial topic in surveys of human populations. When the issue is about a stigmatizing characteristic (for example about illegal drug use), standard survey methodologies are destined to fail because, as expected, people are not willing to reveal incriminating information or information violating their privacy. Indirect questioning techniques have been devised so that the privacy of participants in a sample survey is protected and at the same time good estimates of certain parameters (e.g. the percentage of people in a certain community who use illegal drugs) can be delivered. The topic is modern and still under development. Indirect Questioning in Sample Surveys represents a collection of the most important and recent techniques of indirect questioning, including various versions of randomized response, the item count technique, the nominative technique, the three-card method, non-randomized response models and negative surveys, while also exploring the key aspect of protecting privacy. 95 pp. Englisch.
