Topology optimization for designing strain-gauge load cells
Load cells are used extensively in engineering fields. This paper describes a novel structural optimization method for single- and multi-axis load cell structures. First, we briefly explain the topology optimization method ...
A load cell for grain-propelled ballistic rocket thrust measurement
A 1000-kgf resistive strain-gauge load cell has been developed for quality testing of rocket propellant grain. A 7075-T6 aluminum alloy has been used for the elastic column, in which 8 uniaxial, 120-Ω strain gauges have ...
Tumour cell lysate-loaded dendritic cell vaccine induces biochemical and memory immune response in castration-resistant prostate cancer patients
Background: Recently, we produced a tumour antigen-presenting cells (TAPCells) vaccine using a melanoma cell lysate, called TRIMEL, as an antigen source and an activation factor. Tumour antigen-presenting cells induced ...
Ex Vivo Loading of Autologous Dendritic Cells with Tumor Antigens
Ex vivo-generated antigen-loaded dendritic cells (DC) have been shown to be immunogenic in patients with cancer. Loading DC with autologous whole tumor antigens is a strategy to arm DC against tumor without human leukocyte ...
A Cellular Automaton Approach to Spatial Electric Load Forecasting
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-05-01)
A method for spatial electric load forecasting using a reduced set of data is presented. The method uses a cellular automata model for the spatiotemporal allocation of new loads in the service zone. The density of electrical ...
