Wind turbine load analysis of a full range LPV controller
(Elsevier Science, 2020-01)
A wind turbine load analysis featuring both fatigue and extreme loads for a full range Linear Parameter Varying (LPV) controller is presented in this paper. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) 5 MW reference ...
The FAS-670 AA genotype is associated with high proviral load in peruvian HAM/TSP patients
Human T‐lymphotropic virus 1 (HTLV‐1) is the etiologic agent of the HTLV‐1‐associated myelopathy/tropical spastic paraparesis (HAM/TSP). Apoptosis is a mechanism of defense elicited by many triggers, including cross‐linking ...
Hypertension linked to allostatic load: From psychosocial stress to inflammation and mitochondrial dysfunction
(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2019-03)
Although a large number of available treatments and strategies, the prevalence of cardiovascular diseases continues to grow worldwide.émergingévidence supports the notion of counteracting stress as a critical component of ...
Determining hydraulic connectivity of the coastal aquifer system of La Plata river estuary (Argentina) to the ocean by analysis of aquifer response to low-frequency tidal components
Seawater intrusion occurs in almost all coastal aquifers that are subject to human pressure. Its effects could be reduced by avoiding pumping in those wells better hydraulically connected to the sea. This paper presents a ...
On the sources of cyclic loads in horizontal-axis wind turbines: The role of blade-section misalignment
(Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2018-03)
In this paper we investigate the sources of cyclic loads affecting the structural solicitation and power production in Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines, in particular the role of blade-section misalignment. These loads could ...
Buckling estimates for oil storage tanks: Effect of simplified modeling of the roof and wind girder
Oil storage tanks are short cylindrical shells fabricated with an external fixed roof or floating roof on the inside. Some features of the structure tend to be simplified in practice and research in order to perform stability ...
Carvone-loaded LDPE films for active packaging: Effect of supercritical CO2-assisted impregnation on loading, mechanical and transport properties of the films
(Elsevier Science, 2018-03)
In this work, low density polyethylene (LDPE) films were loaded by scCO2-assisted impregnation with R-(−)-carvone, the main component of M. spicata and A. polystachya essential oils with antimicrobial and insecticidal ...
Non-Tidal ocean loading correction for the Argentinean-German Geodetic Observatory using an empirical model of storm surge for the Río de la Plata
(Birkhauser Verlag Ag, 2017-08-29)
The Argentinean-German Geodetic Observatory is located 13 km from the Río de la Plata, in an area that is frequently affected by storm surges that can vary the level of the river over ±3 m. Water-level information from ...
