  2. 2. Numerical methods for inverse heat conduction problems

    Author : Fredrik Berntsson; Per Christian Hansen; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Ill-posed; Heat Conduction; Regularization; MATHEMATICS; MATEMATIK;

    Abstract : In many industrial applications one wishes to determine the temperature history on the surface of a body, where the surface itself is inaccessible for measurements. The sideways heat equation is a model of this situation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Transport Coefficients during Drying of Solids containing Multicomponent Mixtures

  4. 4. Damage mechanisms for near-infrared radiation induced cataract

    Author : Zhaohua Yu; Per Söderberg; Konstantin Galichanin; Masami Kojima; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; infrared radiation; photochemical; thermal; forward light scattering; lens; cataract; temperature; Arrhenius equation; heat diffusion;

    Abstract : Purpose: 1) To estimate the threshold dose and the time evolution for cataract induction by near infrared radiation (IRR) in seconds exposure time domain; 2) to determine the ocular temperature development during the threshold exposure; 3) to investigate if near IRR induces cumulative lens damage considering irradiance exposure time reciprocity; 4) to experimentally estimate the temperature in the lens indirectly from the measurement of temperature-induced light scattering increase.Methods: Before exposure, 6-weeks-old albino rats were anesthetized and the pupils of both eyes were dilated.
