Slag Splashing: simulation and analysis of the slags conditions

Publication date: Available online 13 November 2019Source: Journal of Materials Research and TechnologyAuthor(s): Inamara Amanda Souza Santos, Vanessa Rodrigues de Medeiros Santos, Willian dos Reis Lima, Aline Lima da Silva, Breno Totti Maia, José Roberto de OliveiraAbstractThe successful application of the repair and prevention of LD converters refractories technique called Slag Splashing requires a close control of the slag physicochemical properties (basicity, viscosity and surface tension), as well as suitable selection of operational parameters and geometric configurations. In this paper, a Slag Splashing process cold simulation is carried out, focusing on a case study of an LD converter from Ternium Brasil Company, located in Rio de Janeiro. The cold physical simulation showed the effect of solids fraction and viscosity on slag projection intensity, evidencing how the coating is affected. Finally, computational thermodynamics shows the evolution of the phases and viscosity during N2 blowing, allowing correlating results of the cold model with industrial practice.

PugazhenthiAbstractEvery year, more than 10 million people have gone through orthopaedic surgery for repair or replacement of bone. Among these, 75% of patients are in a need to re-surgery due to improper implant sublimation replacement because of material failure and improper setting of the replaced materials. The implant materials need to be biocompatible with tissue growth and it should have good mechanical property. In this research work aims to produce a biocompatible polymer-based 3D scaffold models with zero defect a...

Morris-Blanco, Raghu VemugantiAbstractEpigenetic modifications are emerging as major players in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders and susceptibility to acute brain injury. DNA and histone modifications act together with noncoding RNAs to form a complex gene expression machinery that adapts the brain to environmental stressors and injury response. These modifications influence cell-level operations like neurogenesis and DNA repair to large, intricate processes such as brain pattern...

Authors: Ding E, Guo J, Ge X, Sheng R, Chen J, Zhang H, Zhu B Abstract Objective: Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is one of the most common occupational health risks in both developed and industrialized countries. It occurs as a result of interactions between genetic and environmental factors. Nevertheless, inherited genetic factors contributing to NIHL are not well understood. Therefore, we aim to investigate whether genetic mutations in three important base excision repair genes (OGG1, APEX1, and XRCC1) may influence susceptibility to NIHL. Methods: Three SNPs in OGG1, APEX1, and XRCC1 were genotyped from 1...

A74 year's male underwent monopolar transurethral resection of prostate (TURP) for refractory urinary retention with two times failed catheter free trial. After 40 minutes of the procedure, a loud snap was heard during final hemostasis. Bladder rupture was confirmed by clinical and endoscopic findings. Procedure was concluded and 22 Fr 3-way's Foley's catheter kept per urethral. L...

Authors: Landi F, O'Higgins P Abstract Virtual imaging, image manipulation and morphometric methods are increasingly used in medicine and the natural sciences. Virtual imaging hardware and image manipulation software allows us to readily visualise, explore, alter, repair and study digital objects. This suite of equipment and tools combined with statistical tools for the study of form variation and covariation using Procrustes based analyses of landmark coordinates, geometric morphometrics, makes possible a wide range of studies of human variation pertinent to biomedicine. These tools for imaging, quantifying and an...
