3 for the enthalpy of water vaporization by Rodrigues-Arias (Brooker et al., 1992), including the parameter "m" to improve the estimates of L/L' (Correa et al., 1998).
Using side firing fibers for vaporization is somewhat challenging, because the distance between the fiber tip and the tissue should be kept stable during vaporization, working either too close or far from the tissue, may result in fiber damage or coagulation.
Conclusions: In a head-to-head randomized trial, Olympus Plasma Button transurethral vaporization was more cost-effective, faster, and preferred by surgical staff when compared to Biolitetec Diode Laser vaporization.
Thus for this study, both single- and multi-component E10 Gasoline surrogates are used based upon the three important properties: fuel density, latent heat of vaporization and volatility.
Furthermore, engine specific input data is required for the calculation of the vaporization behavior.
If a significant overall dose effect was observed, planned Helmert contrasts were performed; contrast 1 compares oral dosing to the combined inhaled doses, contrast 2 compares smoking and vaporization. For analytes only detected after smoking and vaporization, paired-sample t-tests were conducted.
The maximum temperature of 190[degrees]C was believed to be sufficiently low to avoid significant thermal degradation of the oil sample, at least on the basis of what was observed in coal tar vapor pressure and Kukersite oil shale primary tar vaporization studies [13, 16].
UST's Preservation by Vaporization preserves the biological activity of stem cell proteins at room temperature and significantly cuts the time and cost of manufacturing compared to conventional methods of preservation while increasing final product yields as reconstituted in its various distribution and packaging forms.
