Thermal Control: How to get the best results from satellite radiator system optimization?

With the successful case of the Amazon-I satellite, Brazilian scientists demonstrate an innovative solution in optimizing satellite thermal control through design, revealing the importance of a multifocal approach when studying the development of radiator systems, as these are fundamental. for the correct functioning of the devices and accuracy of the transmitted data.

Scientist-tested methods enhance fiber properties

The capacity of dietary fibers to improve digestion and metabolism is directly linked to the physico-chemical properties of these elements, such as water retention capacity, oil binding and fiber cations. The research found that it is possible to improve the functional characteristics of the fibers, through methods such as micronisation and extrusion. Read More →

Study compares experimental and numerical results of a supercritical airfoil behaviour in compressible flow

Research presents a contribution to the demanding field of studies on hot wire anemometry of the unsteady wake of a supercritical airfoil, based on experimental tests made on an ultrasonic wind tunnel and compared with a numerical study results. Read More →

Can asymmetries in the smile be corrected with Orthodontics?

Tooth inclination resulting from occlusal plane canting may compromise smile esthetics and lead to functional problems. Skeletal anchorage, a new treatment technique, may be used to correct these asymmetries, previously only treated by means of procedures that are either more invasive surgically or more complex mechanically.
