Going Amiss in Experimental Research (Boston Studies in the Philosophy of Science)

Like any goal-oriented technique, scan is topic to many types of disasters. those disasters have various positive factors, reckoning on the details in their resources. For the experimenter those pitfalls might be kept away from and their results minimized. For the historian-philosopher of technology and the technology educator, however, they're instructive beginning issues for reflecting on technological know-how generally and medical technique and perform particularly. usually extra is discovered from failure than from affirmation and winning program. The identity of mistakes, its resource, its context, and its therapy make clear either practices and epistemic claims. This e-book indicates that it's fruitful to convey to gentle forgotten and misplaced disasters, topic them to research and research from their ethical. The examine of disasters, blunders, pitfalls and errors is helping us comprehend the best way wisdom is pursued and certainly generated. The e-book offers either old debts and philosophical analyses of mess ups in experimental perform. It covers issues reminiscent of "error as an item of study", "learning from error", "concepts and useless ends", "instrumental artifacts", and "surprise and puzzlement".

This booklet should be of curiosity to historians, philosophers, and sociologists of technological know-how in addition to to working towards scientists and technology educators.

The Science of Photomedicine

Even though the heritage of photomedicine dates again hundreds of thousands of years, with even preliterate cultures appreciating the therapeutic houses of solar, for plenty of staff within the self-discipline photomedicine is linked to the remark approximately a hundred years in the past of Niels Finsen, a Danish health care provider. Finsen well-known that individuals with tuberculosis who lived in Norway and who had little or no publicity to daylight usually constructed facial lesions (lupus vulgaris) which might reduce and infrequently disappear in the course of the summer time months.

Marine Science Frontiers for Europe

Europe is a continent with a excessive coast-to-surface ratio, and eu seas surround a vast variety of settings and regimes. The sustainable improvement of residing and non-living marine assets, the safety of the marine setting and the supply of marine-based prone are serious to financial prosperity and to the standard of lifetime of eu voters.

Example text

4 Conclusions A multi-scale model for the ultrasonic treatment of liquid metals is presented in this study. The bubble concentration for the flow in a launder with baffles to create recirculation zones in high cavitation activity regions is studied with an improved version of the full cavitation model derived from the Keller-Miksis equation. The optimal baffle distance for both liquid water and aluminium has been found to be at one wavelength of the forcing frequency, implying that resonance with the driving frequency is a desired trait for ultrasonic cavitation treatment of liquid metal.

Secondary dendrite arms are formed behind the tip and the distance between the secondary dendrite arms are direcectly related to the tip radius. In the expression for the tip radius the diffusion constant is included and the smaler the diffusion rate is the finer should the structure be. One could then expect a finer structure in the samples processed under microgravity conditions where the diffusion rate are smaler. However the opposite is observed. During the solidification process a coarsening of the structure occurs.

A larger bubble concentration is desired, since higher cavitation activity – occurring as more bubbles collapse – is thought to promote better grain refinement. Figure 6. Bubble mass fraction along the axis of the sonotrode for water after a run time of 20 s. Mass fraction values are taken along the axis of the sonotrode. Figure 7. Bubble mass fraction across the launder for water after a run time of 20 s. Mass fraction values are taken along the axis of the launder. Figure 8. Bubble mass fraction along the axis Figure 9.
