8:40 PM | How Good is Your Model?
Models, which underpin all chemical engineering design work, vary widely in their complexity, ranging from traditional dimensionless number correlations through to modern computer based techniques such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and discrete element method (DEM). Industrial users require confidence in a model under the conditions it is to be applied in order to use it for design purposes and this can be a reason for slow acceptance of new techniques. This paper explores the validity […]

12:04 PM | Einstein undergoing fission (a particular philosophical viewpoint)
Nobel prize-winning physicist Albert Einstein was of course deeply interested in (and concerned with) the implications of splitting the atom, viz. nuclear fission. Philosophers on the other hand, not only consider such things, but can also go on to wonder : What about splitting Albert himself? Such a scenario is examined by Dr. Wolfgang Schwarz […]

3:00 PM | Thesis: Compressive Power Spectral Analysis by Dyonisius Ariananda
Compressive Power Spectral Analysis by Dyonisius Ariananda At the heart of digital signal processing (DSP) are the sampling and quantization processes, which convert analog signals into discrete samples and which are implemented in the form of analog to digital converters (ADCs). In some recent applications, there is an increased demand for DSP applications to process signals having a very wide bandwidth. For such signals, the minimum allowable sampling rate is also very high and this has put a […]

2:00 PM | Platinum Investment Casting, Part II: Alloy Optimisation by Thermodynamic Simulation and Experimental Verification
Two widely used jewellery investment casting alloys (platinum with 5 wt% ruthenium (Pt-5Ru) and platinum with 5 wt% cobalt (Pt-5Co)) suffer from poor castability and other drawbacks. In this work thermodynamic calculations of alloy properties were employed to optimise the alloy compositions. Segregation behaviour appeared to be important for the melting range. Scheil simulations were used to simulate segregation under typical casting conditions. Based on these simulation results, small […]

Great convergence, here we come ! From the paper:The dataset contains about 17424 volumes; and multiple slices in each volume. In total we have used about 100,000 images for training the SDAE's...Unfortunately, for these datasets, the fully sampled k-space scans are not available. Therefore the reconstruction results obtained from [8] is taken as the basis images for comparison.Using time dependent images reconstructed from some unknown algorithm and comparing it with the temporal […]
