Optimal low cost transfer to L4 and L5 lagrangian points
Lagrangian points L4 and L5 lie at 60 degrees ahead of and behind Moon in its orbit with respect to the Earth. Each one of them is a third point of an equilateral triangle with the base of the line defined by those two ...
Model-based control of enzyme yield in solid-state fermentation
Solid-state fermentation is gaining increasing importance for the production of high-added value products, for instance enzymes, from agro-industrial by-products. The main difficulty in operating this process in packed-bed ...
Analytical/numerical hybrid solution for one-dimensional ablation problem
Ablation is a thermal protection process with several applications in engineering, mainly in the field of airspace industry. The use of conventional materials must be quite restricted, because they would suffer catastrophic ...
Electron Interactions with Disulfide Bridges
Because of its electronic properties, sulfur plays a major role in a variety of metabolic processes and, more in general, in the chemistry of life. In particular, S-S bridges between cysteines are present in the amino acid ...
