    • "This procedure eased the dissolution of Nile red into the liquids. Note that the results presented in this paper for (3-aminopropyl)-triethoxysilane (TESA) and (3-aminopropyl)-trimethoxysilane (TMSA) differ slightly from those previously reported [5], because of a more accurate method for calculating the maximum absorbance of the dye. Previous reports fit the data to a polynomial and obtained the maximum by setting the polynomial curve's derivative to zero. "

    ABSTRACT: Single component, reversible ionic liquids have excellent potential as novel solvents for a variety of energy applications. Our energy industry is faced with many new challenges including increased energy consumption, depleting oil reserves, and increased environmental awareness. We report the use of reversible ionic liquids to solve two energy challenges: extraction of hydrocarbons from contaminated crude oil and carbon capture from power plant flue gas streams. Our reversible solvents are derived from silylated amine molecular liquids which react with carbon dioxide reversibly to form ionic liquids. Here we compare the properties of various silylated amine precursors and their corresponding ionic liquids. We show how the property changes are advantageous in the two aforementioned energy applications. In the case of hydrocarbon purification, we take advantage of the polarity switch between precursor and ionic liquid to enable separations. In carbon capture, our solvents act as dual physical and chemical capture agents for carbon dioxide. Finally, we show the potential economics of scale-up for both processes.

    ABSTRACT: The UMTS Terrestrial Radio Access (UTRA) air interface consists of two modes, a frequency division duplex (FDD) mode and a time division duplex (TDD) mode. The different modes operate in the paired and in the unpaired frequency band respectively. This paper analyses different radio resource allocation schemes for the broadcast control channel (BCCH) in the TDD mode of UTRA.. The investigations concern the performance of the BCCH as well as the performance of the served downlink speech connections. Simulations show that one of the 15 time slots in the TDMA frame should be allocated entirely for the BCCH. Compared to a resource allocation scheme where traffic channels (TCHs) and the BCCH are mixed in the same time slot, this is advantageous both for the BCCH and the TCHs. However, the measure excludes 1/15 of the available resources for traffic utilization

    ABSTRACT: Large and complex systems from the EMC point of view are objects that contain different structures requiring individually composed methods for modeling as well as calculation. Automobiles, aircraft, or PCBs with devices are large and complex systems. The paper describes activities that were done to handle automotive EMC problems with computer simulations. A set of methods was compiled to allow, in a first stage, a fast calculation model generation, and, to apply in a second stage with minimum user interaction, accurate and fast multi step hybrid methods. The paper focuses less on the methods themselves, but more on the completeness of the process chain that is required to do successful simulations of automobiles or other large systems.
