  1. A microfluidic platform for characterizing the structure and rheology of biofilm streamers 

    Savorana, Giovanni; Slomka, Jonasz; Stocker, Roman; et al. (2022)
    Soft Matter
    Biofilm formation is the most successful survival strategy for bacterial communities. In the biofilm lifestyle, bacteria embed themselves in a self-secreted matrix of extracellular polymeric substances (EPS), which acts as a shield against mechanical and chemical insults. When ambient flow is present, this viscoelastic scaffold can take a streamlined shape, forming biofilm filaments suspended in flow, called streamers. Streamers significantly ...

  3. Strategy games to improve environmental policymaking 

    Garcia, Claude A.; Savilaakso, Sini; Verburg, Rene W.; et al. (2022)
    Nature Sustainability
    Scholars develop scenarios to identify the operational margins of system Earth, but focus less on how decisions are made that affect the system one way or another. Strategy games can help increase the representation of human agency in scenario development, allowing for deliberation among diverse worldviews.

  4. Consistent lattice Boltzmann model for reactive mixtures 

    Sawant, N.; Dorschner, B.; Karlin, I., V (2022)
    Journal of Fluid Mechanics
    A new lattice Boltzmann model (LBM) for chemically reactive mixtures is presented. The approach capitalizes on the recently introduced thermodynamically consistent LBM for multicomponent mixtures of ideal gases. Similar to the non-reactive case, the present LBM features Stefan-Maxwell diffusion of chemical species and a fully on-lattice mean-field realization of the momentum and energy of the flow. Besides introducing the reaction mechanism ...

  8. Assessing the Effects of Closure-Free Periods on Railway Intervention Costs and Service 

    Burkhalter, Marcel; Adey, Bryan T. (2022)
    Journal of Infrastructure Systems
    Ensuring that railways provide excellent service requires the execution of maintenance interventions. As railway use intensifies, this becomes increasingly difficult due to the conflict between track possession used for train operation and the execution of interventions. One way to improve the consistency of train schedules, and thus user comfort, is to impose closure-free periods, in which no interventions are planned. The imposition of ...

  9. Determination of constitutive friction laws appropriate for simulation of cutting processes 

    Schulze, Volker; Bleicher, Friedrich; Courbon, Cédric; et al. (2022)
    CIRP Journal of Manufacturing Science and Technology
    The influence of friction on machining processes as a function of pressure, velocity and temperature is neither deeply understood nor sufficiently definable for Finite-Element-Method (FEM) simulations. Current simulations therefore often use constant values for the friction coefficients. In this work, friction coefficients for SAE 1045 are determined from different tribometers. An empirical model is subsequently fit to the data and used ...

  11. The radiocarbon world according to Wally 

    Hajdas, Irka (2022)
    Wallace Smith Broecker (1933–2019) grew up in Oak Park, Illinois, a village in Cook County adjacent to Chicago. From 1949 to 1952 he attended Wheaton College, but moved to graduate in 1953 from Columbia University, where he remained for a 66-year-long scientific career. In this time, he wrote many publications about the radioactive isotope of carbon. As the whole community knows him, Wally was a geochemist who found the passion of his ...

  12. Review on design strategies and applications of metal-organic framework-cellulose composites 

    Tu, Kunkun; Ding, Yong; Keplinger, Tobias (2022)
    Carbohydrate Polymers
    Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are among the most attractive functional porous materials. However, their processability and handling remains a substantial challenge because MOFs generally occur in powder form due to their crystalline nature. Combining MOFs and cellulose substrates to fabricate engineered materials offers an ideal solution to broaden their utilization as functional materials. MOF/cellulose composites further provide ...

  14. Alkali‐silica reaction – a multidisciplinary approach 

    Leemann, Andreas; Bagheri, Mahsa; Lothenbach, Barbara; et al. (2021)
    RILEM Technical Letters
    In the last four years, a multidisciplinary study involving several research groups in Switzerland tackled a number of unsolved, fundamental issues about the alkali‐silica reaction (ASR) in concrete. The covered topics include SiO2 dissolution, the characterization of various ASR products formed at different stages of the reaction in both concrete and synthesis, crack formation and propagation. The encompassed scale ranges from nanometers ...

  15. Cassava-maize intercropping systems in southern Nigeria: Radiation use efficiency, soil moisture dynamics, and yields of component crops 

    Nwokoro, Charles Chigemezu; Kreye, Christine; Necpalova, Magdalena; et al. (2022)
    Field Crops Research
    Efficient utilization of incident solar radiation and rainwater conservation in rain-fed smallholder cropping systems require the development and adoption of cropping systems with high resource use efficiency. Due to the popularity of cassava-maize intercropping and the food security and economic importance of both crops in Nigeria, we investigated options to improve interception of photosynthetically active radiation (IPAR), radiation ...

  17. Argonaute proteins regulate a specific network of genes through KLF4 in mouse embryonic stem cells 

    Müller, Madlen; Schaefer, Moritz; Fäh, Tara; et al. (2022)
    Stem Cell Reports
    The Argonaute proteins (AGOs) are well known for their role in post-transcriptional gene silencing in the microRNA (miRNA) pathway. Here we show that in mouse embryonic stem cells, AGO1&2 serve additional functions that go beyond the miRNA pathway. Through the combined deletion of both Agos, we identified a specific set of genes that are uniquely regulated by AGOs but not by the other miRNA biogenesis factors. Deletion of Ago2&1 caused a ...

  19. Global post-translational modification profiling of HIV-1-infected cells reveals mechanisms of host cellular pathway remodeling 

    Johnson, Jeffrey R.; Crosby, David C.; Hultquist, Judd F.; et al. (2022)
    Cell Reports
    Viruses must effectively remodel host cellular pathways to replicate and evade immune defenses, and they must do so with limited genomic coding capacity. Targeting post-translational modification (PTM) pathways provides a mechanism by which viruses can broadly and rapidly transform a hostile host environment into a hospitable one. We use mass spectrometry-based proteomics to quantify changes in protein abundance and two PTM types-phosphorylation ...
