Development of an agent-based model and its application to the estimation of global carbon emissions
(Scientific Research, 2013-12)
With the purpose of studying the influence of population dynamics and economic growth on energy consumption and carbon emissions, an endogenous economic growth model is proposed incorporating physical and human capital and ...
Bacterial Cellulose from Simple and Low Cost Production Media by Gluconacetobacter xylinus
Bacterial cellulose pellicles were produced by Gluconacetobacter xylinus using non conventional low-cost carbon sources, such as glycerol remaining from biodiesel production and grape bagasse, a residue of wine production. ...
Contribution of incident solar radiation on leaves and pods to soybean seed weight and composition
(Elsevier Science, 2016-07)
The weight and composition of soybean seeds (Glycine Max L. Merrill) depend on changes in carbon and nitrogen assimilate supply during grain filling. Soybean pods and seeds are green, evidencing their capacity to capture ...
Effect of Alloying Elements on Thermal Diffusivity of Gray Cast Iron Used in Automotive Brake Disks
The purpose of this work was to experimentally investigate the thermal diffusivity of four different gray cast iron alloys, regularly used to produce brake disks for automotive vehicles. Thermal diffusivity measurements ...
Leaf anatomical traits are correlated with tree dominance in a Neotropical deciduous forest
Deciduous forests from the neotropics are one of the most endangered forest types in the world due to the exploitation of their natural resources by mankind. Many aspects of these ecosystems have been studied; however, ...
