We explore temperature dependence of the self, corrected and transport diffusivities of CO2, CH4 and N2 in a polyethylene (PE) polymer membrane through equilibrium Molecular Dynamics (EMD) simulations. We also investigate the morphology of the polymer membrane based on the intermolecular radial distribution function (RDF), free volume and pore size distribution analysis. The results indicate the existence of 1.5-3 Å diameter pores in PE membrane, and with increase in temperature the polymer swells linearly with changing slope at 450 K in the absence of gas and exponentially in the presence of gas...

With the rapidly growing VR industry, in recent years, more and more attention has been paid for fire sound synthesis. However, previous methods usually ignore the influences of the different solid combustibles, leading to unrealistic sounding results. This paper proposes SSC (sounding solid combustibles), which is a new recording-driven non-premixed flame sound synthesis framework accounting for different solid combustibles. SSC consists of three components: combustion noise, vortex noise and popping sounds...

The interpretation of experimental electron momentum distributions (EMDs) of ethanol, one of the simplest molecules having conformers, has confused researchers for years. High-level calculations of Dyson orbital EMDs by thermally averaging the gauche and trans conformers as well as molecular dynamical simulations failed to quantitatively reproduce the experiments for some of the outer valence orbitals. In this work, the valence shell electron binding energy spectrum and EMDs of ethanol are revisited by the high-sensitivity electron momentum spectrometer employing symmetric noncoplanar geometry at an incident energy of 1200 eV plus binding energy, together with a detailed analysis of the influence of vibrational motions on the EMDs for the two conformers employing a harmonic analytical quantum mechanical (HAQM) approach by taking into account all of the vibrational modes...

Weak partitioning chromatography (WPC) has been proposed for the purification of monoclonal antibodies using an anion exchange (AEX) resin to simultaneously remove both acidic and basic protein impurities. Despite potential advantages, the relationship between resin structure and WPC performance has not been evaluated systematically. In this work, we determine the structure of representative AEX resins (Fractogel® EMD TMAE HiCap, Q Sepharose FF, and POROS 50 HQ) using transmission electron microscopy and inverse size exclusion chromatography and characterize protein interactions while operating these resins under WPC conditions using two mAb monomers, a mAb dimer, mAb multimers, and BSA as model products and impurities...

The effect of three electrical stimulation (ES) frequencies (10, 35, and 50 Hz) on two muscle groups with different proportions of fast and slow twitch fibers (abductor pollicis brevis (APB) and vastus lateralis (VL)) was explored. We evaluated the acute muscles' responses individually and during hybrid activations (ES superimposed by voluntary activations). Surface electromyography (sEMG) and force measurements were evaluated as outcomes. Ten healthy adults (mean age: 24.4 ± 2.5 years) participated after signing an informed consent form approved by the university Institutional Review Board...

The weakly electric fish Gnathonemus petersii can recognise objects using active electrolocation. Here, we tested two aspects of object recognition; first whether shape recognition might be influenced by movement of the fish, and second whether object discrimination is affected by the presence of electrical noise from conspecifics. (i) Unlike other object features, such as size or volume, no parameter within a single electrical image has been found that encodes object shape. We investigated whether shape recognition might be facilitated by movement-induced modulations (MIM) of the set of electrical images that are created as a fish swims past an object...

: It has been shown previously in the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) that two point mutations, N15A and V25F, in the transmembrane domain (TMD) of the envelope (E) protein abolished channel activity and led to in vivo attenuation. Pathogenicity was recovered in mutants that also regained E protein channel activity. In particular, V25F was rapidly compensated by changes at multiple V25F-facing TMD residues located on a neighboring monomer, consistent with a recovery of oligomerization...

Empirical mode decomposition (EMD) is an adaptive filter bank for processing nonlinear and non-stationary signals, such as electroencephalographic (EEG) signals. EMD works well to decompose a time series into a set of intrinsic mode functions with specific frequency bands. An IMF therefore represents an intrinsic component on its correspondingly intrinsic frequency band. The word of 'intrinsic' means the frequency is totally adaptive to the nature of a signal. In this study, power density and nonlinearity are two critical parameters for characterizing the amplitude and frequency modulations in IMFs...

It has been shown that zebrafish fear learning proceeds in the same way as reported for rodents. However, in zebrafish fear learning it is possible to substitute the use of electric shocks as unconditioned stimulus and utilize the inborn fear responses to the alarm substance Schreckstoff, instead. The skin extract Schreckstoff elicits typical fear reactions such as preferred bottom dwelling, swimming in a tighter shoal, erratic movements and freezing. This natural fear behavior can be transferred from Schreckstoff to any other sensory stimulus by associative conditioning (fear learning)...

BACKGROUND: The use of Enamel Matrix Derivative (EMD) when dealing with non-contained defects may be limited, as EMD does not maintain a space itself. It has been proposed the use of combined therapy, using a bone graft in combination with EMD to avoid the collapse of the flap into the bony defect during the healing time. Therefore the aim of this study is to evaluate the clinical and radiological healing response of non-contained infrabony defects following treatment with a combination of EMD and Biphasic calcium phosphate (BC) or EMD alone...

Donghoh Kim, Hee-Seok Oh
This paper considers an improvement of empirical mode decomposition (EMD) in the presence of missing data. EMD has been widely used to decompose nonlinear and nonstationary signals into some components according to intrinsic frequency called intrinsic mode functions. However, the conventional EMD may not be efficient when missing values are present. This paper proposes a modified EMD procedure based on a novel combination of empirical mode decomposition and self-consistency concept. The self-consistency provides an effective imputation method of missing data, and hence, the proposed EMD procedure produces stable decomposition results...

Lately, Ensemble Empirical Mode Decomposition (EEMD) techniques receive growing interest in biomedical data analysis. Event-Related Modes (ERMs) represent features extracted by an EEMD from electroencephalographic (EEG) recordings. We present a new approach for source localization of EEG data based on combining ERMs with inverse models. As the first step, 64 channel EEG recordings are pooled according to six brain areas and decomposed, by applying an EEMD, into their underlying ERMs. Then, based upon the problem at hand, the most closely related ERM, in terms of frequency and amplitude, is combined with inverse modeling techniques for source localization...

Temperature, solar radiation and water are major important variables in ecosystem models which are measurable via wireless sensor networks (WSN). Effective data analysis is necessary to extract significant spatial and temporal information. In this work, information regarding the long term variation of seasonal field environment conditions is explored using Hilbert-Huang transform (HHT) based analysis on the wireless sensor network data collection. The data collection network, consisting of 36 wireless nodes, covers an area of 100 square kilometres in Yanqing, the northwest of Beijing CBD, in China and data collection involves environmental parameter observations taken over a period of three months in 2011...

INTRODUCTION: The onsets of the electromyographic (EMG) signal, mechanomyographic (MMG) signal, and force production were used to identify voluntary electromechanical delay (EMD) during maximal and submaximal leg extensions. METHODS: Twelve men performed 30% 1-repetition maximum concentric, dynamic constant external resistance leg extensions to failure. The time periods for the onsets of EMG to MMG (EMDE-M ), MMG to force (EMDM-F ), and EMG to force (EMDE-F ) were assessed pretest, during, and posttest...
