Accurately determining the early Post-Mortem Interval (PMI), the period shortly after death, is critical for reconstructing the timeline of suspected crimes. The PHOEBE model, a new thermodynamic finite-difference model that simulates body cooling, significantly improves PMI estimations but is highly sensitive to the thermal conductivity of the...

The use of waste materials has gained attention as a sustainable approach in various industries. Cigarette waste, which is typically discarded as a non-recyclable material, poses a significant environmental challenge due to its toxicity and slow decomposition rate. However, by incorporating this waste into ceramic bricks, new approaches for...

Evaluation of the hydrological performance of grassed swales usually needs long-term monitoring data. At present, suitable techniques for simulating the hydrological performance using limited monitoring data are not available. Therefore, current study aims to investigate the relationship between saturated hydraulic conductivity (K<sub>s</sub>...

Among experts, it is well-known that the thermal conductivity of PCMs (phase change materials) is low hence a major limitation for their commercial application. This work proposes alternative, inexpensive, but nevertheless effective solutions to increase the average thermal conductivity of a PCM system (a commercial paraffin wax, having a...

Cable bacteria are filamentous, multicellular microorganisms that display an exceptional form of biological electron transport across centimeter-scale distances. Currents are guided through a network of nickel-containing protein fibers within the cell envelope. Still, the mechanism of long-range conduction remains unresolved. Here, we...

(1) Background: Structural remodeling plays an important role in the pathophysiology of atrial fibrillation (AF). It is likely that structural remodeling occurs transmurally, giving rise to electrical endo-epicardial asynchrony (EEA). Recent studies have suggested that areas of EEA may be suitable targets for ablation therapy of AF. We...

The development of hot dry rocks (HDRs) is of great significance to adjusting energy structure, alleviating energy shortage, reducing pollution, etc. Low-permeability granite is the predominant rock type in deep HDRs, making fractures the primary pathways for fluid circulation and heat extraction. The production of HDRs is significantly...

The high theoretical volumetric capacity, abundance of magnesium in the earth’s crust, and the relatively good safety features of Mg metal, have drawn great attention to developing Magnesium batteries as a follow-up to the success of Li-ion battery technology. However, the magnesium metal is incompatible with most electrolyte solvents and salts,...

The petrochemical industry accounts for approximately 20% of global industrial CO2 emissions. Ethylene manufacturing is one of the major components and has a high carbon footprint. This study explores the use of proton-conducting electrochemical cells (PCECs) for ethylene production - the WINNER process. This non-oxidative dehydrogenation (NODH)...

The brain is the most intricate organ in the human body, yet the underlying mechanisms of its cells and networks are not fully mapped. In addition to this lack of understanding, there are numerous neurological disorders and diseases for which a cure remains elusive. There has been persistent research to understand how neuronal cells function...

Prediction of heat transfer phenomena and resulting temperature distributions is crucial among many appliances in the industry sector. In a vacuum, the dominant mode of heat transfer is conduction. The resulting temperature drop at the body’s interface is dependent on a parameter known as Thermal Contact Conductance (TCC) or, alternatively,...

Thermoplastic composites enable new manufacturing techniques such as conduction welding to make the aviation industry more sustainable, while at the same time, provide great benefits to cost-efficient high-volume production. One of the benefits of welding is that it reduces the amount of mechanical fasteners required. Fastener-free joining also...

The journey towards increasing thin film solar cell efficiency is a continuously ongoing one, where each layer in the cell adds its own contributions and limitations. The transparent conductive oxide (TCO) is the first layer to encounter incident light on these cells and therefore needs to fulfil the requirement of high transparency. Carriers...
