The aim of this work is to study the corrosion behaviour in chloride media of a high chromium iron alloy. The influence of the surface finishing as well as the heat treatment was analysed. The technique employed for measuring the corrosion behaviour was the Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy, an electrochemical technique that allows the observation not only of the corrosion rates but also the changes on the corrosion mechanism of the alloy. The results showed that it is worth performing a double tempering and a having smoother surface finishing only for long exposure periods. A comparison between different oxidising conditions was also performed simulating the life in service of the hot rolling cylinders and revealed an increase in the protective properties as the oxidising time increased due to the chromium present on the alloy (18%).

An investigation of the rotary forging process of a 2024 aluminium rod is summarised. Some dispersion in mechanical properties and chemical composition of the base material is permitted. Samples of two material batches were selected: one just stays near the upper limit of tolerance and the other has mean properties. Tensile and compression tests confirm the different mechanical behaviours and allow the identification of constitutive laws parameters. Optical metallography after T3 and T10 thermal treatments and differential thermal analysis provide the grain size and precipitation characteristics of each material batch, which explain their different mechanical behaviours. The industrial rod studied is usually forged in two operations: a first forging process, then a T10 thermal treatment followed by a second forging step. Industrial practise shows that manufacturing the rod with one forging step fails. FEM simulations of the process coupled with a fracture criterion confirm the advantage of a two-step process compared to a single forging step. [less ▲]

The authors investigate the rectified motion of vortices in superconducting films deposited on top of a close-packed array of open in-plane magnetized triangular micromagnets. The dc voltage induced by the vortex drift under an ac excitation is recorded for three different magnetic configurations of the triangles. When the magnetic elements are in the as-grown state a rectification signal which reverses sign when the field changes polarity is observed. In contrast to that, when the array of triangles is magnetized the observed rectification effect is independent of the field polarity and can be reverted by reorienting the magnetization of the micromagnets.

It is generally stated that an accurate evaluation of the equivalent viscous damping is a crucial step in the Direct Displacement-Based Design (DDBD) methodology. In such a context, the main objective of the present contribution is to assess and compare different existing equations aiming at evaluating the equivalent damping and to provide information of the practical consequences of choosing one or another of these equations in the design process.

The approximation known as Frozen Convection has been widely used in the context of stellar oscillations due to the lack of a Time Dependent Convection theory. This approximation supposes to neglect the interaction between convection and oscillations and there are different ways to do it. The choice can affect theoretical predictions concerning the non-adiabatic treatment of the stellar oscillations. In fact, fictitious excitation or damping of the pulsation modes can be produced depending on the approximation used. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of extracellular endopeptidases that degrade the extracellular matrix and other extracellular proteins. Studies in experimental animals demonstrate that MMPs play a number of roles in the detrimental as well as in the beneficial events after spinal cord injury (SCI). In the present correlative investigation, the expression pattern of several MMPs and their inhibitors has been investigated in the human spinal cord. METHODS: An immunohistochemical investigation in post mortem samples of control and lesioned human spinal cords was performed. All patients with traumatic SCI had been clinically diagnosed as having "complete" injuries and presented lesions of the maceration type. RESULTS: In the unlesioned human spinal cord, MMP and TIMP immunoreactivity was scarce. After traumatic SCI, a lesion-induced bi-phasic pattern of raised MMP-1 levels could be found with an early up-regulation in macrophages within the lesion epicentre and a later induction in peri-lesional activated astrocytes. There was an early and brief induction of MMP-2 at the lesion core in macrophages. MMP-9 and -12 expression peaked at 24 days after injury and both molecules were mostly expressed in macrophages at the lesion epicentre. Whereas MMP-9 levels rose progressively from 1 week to 3 weeks, there was an isolated peak of MMP-12 expression at 24 days. The post-traumatic distribution of the MMP inhibitors TIMP-1, -2 and -3 was limited. Only occasional TIMP immuno-positive macrophages could be detected at short survival times. The only clear induction was detected for TIMP-3 at survival times of 8 months and 1 year in peri-lesional activated astrocytes. CONCLUSION: The involvement of MMP-1, -2, -9 and -12 has been demonstrated in the post-traumatic events after human SCI. With an expression pattern corresponding largely to prior experimental studies, they were mainly expressed during the first weeks after injury and were most likely involved in the destructive inflammatory events of protein breakdown and phagocytosis carried out by infiltrating neutrophils and macrophages, as well as being involved in enhanced permeability of the blood spinal cord barrier. Similar to animal investigations, the strong induction of MMPs was not accompanied by an expression of their inhibitors, allowing these proteins to exert their effects in the lesioned spinal cord.

This paper proposes the use of the stochastic frontier approach to analyse the relationship between cognitive performance, retirement and non-professional activities of the 50+ individuals using data from three surveys conducted in Europe (the Survey on Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe and the English Longitudinal Survey on Ageing) and United States (the Health and Retirement Study). Next to the strong relationship between cognitive performance, age and education, this study highlights the negative effect of retirement and the positive impact of non-professional activities and social contacts.
