Numerical solutions for the nonlinear partial fractional Zakharov-Kuznetsov equations with time and space fractional

In this article, we implement relatively analytical techniques such as the homotopy perturbation method and homotopy analysis method to solve nonlinear partial fractional differential Zakharov-Kuznetsov equations. The fractional derivatives are described in the Caputo sense. We compare between the approximate solutions obtained by the homotopy perturbation method and the approximate solutions obtained by homotopy...

Flow-induced Noise Prediction for 90ËšBend Pipeby LES and FW-H Hybrid Method

This paper focuses on an aerodynamic noise study of outlet elbow of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine by analyzing the wall pressure fluctuations and predicting the far filed sound generated by turbulent flow. A hybrid approach combing the Larger-Eddy Simulation (LES) and Ffcowcs Williams-Hawkings (FW-H) acoustic analogy was used to simulate the flow distribution as well as calculate the flow-induced...

Effect of ultra-short wave on hormone-induced ischemic necrosis of femoral head in early stage

This study aims to investigate the effect of ultra-short wave on hormone-induced ischemic necrosis of femoral head in early stage by using an Avascular necrosis of the femoral head (ANFH) rabbit model. Horse serum was administered to male rabbits via the marginal ear vein, whereas control rabbits received saline. After five weeks, the rabbits with horse serum were injected with methylprednisolone. Blood-lipoids and...

Analyzing vulnerability and resilience of Turkey to climate change

The purpose of this study was to analyze the vulnerability and resilience of Turkey to climate change impacts. The Vulnerability Resilience Index was developed to measure Turkey’s vulnerability. Adaptive/coping capacity and exposure/sensitivity sectors were generated and used to determine the vulnerability value. First, these sectors were divided into related indicators. Economy, human resources, environment, and...

Paradigm shift to strengthen public health programming: A case for a unified public health leadership approach

The continued challenges in public health programs and in particular the dearth of tested approaches that hinges on systems thinking approach, holistic planning and implementation with all relevant stakeholder calls for newer approaches in public health leadership. This work advances a unified leadership theory drawn from skills approach, high coaching and high directive behavior and system thinking approach. The...

Exploring anti-acetylcholinesterase, antioxidant and metal chelating activities of extracts of Moringa oleifera L. for possible prevention and cure of Alzheimer’s disease

The aim of this research is to explore the natural flora of Kashmir for novel plant products for their possible applications in the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). In the current study, Moringa oleifera L. was selected for its possible memory-enhancing potential. Extracts of various parts of the plant were screened for anti-acetylcholinesterase, antioxidant and metal chelating activities. The...
