Thermodynamics of a Peyrard-Bishop One-Dimensional Lattice with On-site Hump Potential
This paper presents a thermodynamic study of DNA through a Peyrard-Bishop one-dimensional lattice with an on-site hump potential. The transfer integral operator method was used to obtain the thermodynamic properties of the ...
On the thermodynamics of far-from-equilibrium dissipative systems
(Wiley-v C H Verlag GmbhBerlinAlemanha, 1999)
Evaluation of mechanical and thermal properties after chemical degradation of PVC and HDPE geomembranes
Chemical compatibility between geomembranes and site-specific waste liquids should be assessed since the waste liquids are highly complex mixtures. This paper presents some considerations about the chemical compatibility ...
A simple procedure for the preparation of laponite and thermoplastic starch nanocomposites: Structural, mechanical, and thermal characterizations
The aim of this article is to propose advances for the preparation of hybrid nanocomposites prepared by the combination of intercalation from solution and melt-processing methods. This research investigates the effect of ...
Chlorine evolution during the fusion of chlorofluoroindate glasses
Samples with a composition of 40InF 3-20ZnF 2-5MCl- xBaF 2-ySrF 2, where M=Na, Li and x+y=35 mol%, were prepared. The thermal properties related to the Ba/Sr ratio and to the remaining chlorine content in the glasses were ...
Sorption isotherms and thermodynamic properties of grated Parmesan cheese
This study focuses on isotherms, isosteric heat of sorption and enthalpy-entropy mechanism of water sorption of grated Parmesan cheese at simulating conditions of storage and drying processes. Isotherms were determined by ...
Spectral and thermodynamical properties of systems with noncanonical commutation rules: semiclassical approach
