Ernst, scientist in Hapsburg Empire, 1838-1916. See: Mach band, Mach number.


A gene on chromosome 2q33-q34 that encodes a protein belonging to the cysteine-aspartic acid protease (caspase) family which, once activated by proteolytic processing, plays a central role in the execution phase of cell apoptosis, as well as various stages of embryological development. CASP8 is an initiator-type caspase, which is activated by, and interacts with, upstream adaptor molecules through CARD and DED protein–protein interaction domains; it is involved in the programmed cell death induced by Fas and various apoptotic stimuli. It is highly expressed in peripheral blood leukocytes and in the spleen, thymus and liver.

Molecular pathology
CASP8 has been detected in the insoluble fraction of affected brain regions in Huntington disease, suggesting a role in neurodegenerative diseases.

Parameters considered for simulation of Mach number for C - nozzle using Gambit/Fluent software
Table 1 shows the nozzle and process parameters considered to obtain Mach number 1 at the nozzle exit.
The different cases that were considered for conducting the experiments on C nozzle to measure the Mach number, Pressure, Velocity Vector and temperature inside the nozzle, at the exit of the nozzle and flow area using CFD trails are: variation of values along radial direction of nozzle with and without MDT, along axial direction with and without MDT.
For Axial measurement of Mach number, chamber like design was considered at the exit of the nozzle where the exit diameter of chamber considered was greater then 2 times the nozzle diameter and the length was 300mm.
