Comparison of design alternatives generated by computer aided design and user expectations from small urban spaces

This study investigates the compliance of alternative design models based on perception of designer and users by creating 3D models of the fields before construction. The application part of this work presents 4 different ground cover materials, modeled on the computer, that were proposed for 2 predetermined small urban areas to apply the design in the highest demand. Questionnaire participants were then asked to...

Artificial neural network approach to buckling coefficients of laminated orthotropic rectangular plates with a centrally rectangular hole

The objective of the present study is to describe the results of research that has been conducted on the buckling behavior of rectangular laminated orthotropic plates that have a rectangular hole. As a result of using some geometrical holes which cause stress concentrations on laminated orthotropic plates, the analysis about the buckling coefficient of the elements become very important. This work deals with buckling...

Chemokine receptor 3 (CXCR3) and its ligands contribution to virus-induced acute hepatic failure

The role of chemokines in virus-induced acute hepatic failure is not well defined. In this study, we investigated the role of CXC chemokine receptor 3 (CXCR3) and its ligands chemokine Mig/CXCL9 (monokine induced by IFN-gamma) and IP-10/CXCL10 (interferon-gamma-inducible protein 10) in the recruitment of intrahepatic lymphocytes and subsequent acute hepatic failure. Balb/cJ mice (6 to 8 weeks, female) were...

Morphotaxonomic evaluation of the relationship between four species of Crassocephalum (Moench.) S. Moore (Asteraceae) in southwestern Nigeria

The morphotaxonomic identity of Crassocephalum biafrae (Oliv. & Hiern.) S. Moore was compared with other three taxa namely: Crassocehalum crepidioides (Benth.) S. Moore, Crassocephalum rubens (Juss.ex.Jacq.) S. Moore and, Crassocephalum togoense C.D. Adams in the genus Crassocephalum tribe Senecioneae; with the intent of establishing some delimiting...
