Physical activity (PA) and high aerobic fitness protects against cardiovascular disease and early death possibly among others because of an anti-atherogenic impact on lipoprotein particle concentrations. The objective of this study was to determine the impact of PA and diet on lipoprotein particle concentrations. Thirty-one severely obese women (age 43.6 ± 10.2 years; body mass index 43.0 ± 6.3 kg m−2) participated in a 1-year lifestyle intervention with repeated measurements of lipoprotein particle subclass concentrations and size of very low density lipoprotein (VLDL), low density lipoprotein (LDL) and high density lipoprotein (HDL), as well as fat mass, PA and diet. Multiple regression was used to determine associations with change (Δ) in two principal components (PCs) describing lipoprotein distributions: ΔPC 1 LIPO (dominated by VLDL and LDL) and ΔPC 2 LIPO (dominated by large HDL and mean HDL particle ...

*  Size-resolved fluxes of sub-100-nm particles over forests - Danish National Research Database-Den Danske Forskningsdatabase
Dry deposition of atmospheric particles is critically dependent on particle size and plays a key role in dictating the mass and number distributions of atmospheric particles. However, modeling dry deposition is constrained by a lack of understanding of controlling dependencies and accurate size-resolved observations. We present size-resolved particle number fluxes for sub-100-nm particle diameters (Dp) over a deciduous forest derived using eddy covariance applied to data from a fast mobility particle sizer. The size-resolved particle number fluxes in 18 diameters between 8 and 100 nm were collected during leaf-on and are statistically robust. Particle deposition velocities normalized by friction velocity (v d +) are approximately four times smaller than comparable values for coniferous ...

*  Scanning mobility particle sizer - Wikipedia
A scanning mobility particle sizer (SMPS) is an analytical instrument that measures the size and number concentration of aerosol particles with diameters from 2.5 nm to 1000 nm. They employ a continuous, fast-scanning technique to provide high-resolution measurements. The particles that are investigated can be of biological or chemical nature. The instrument can be used for air quality measurement indoors, vehicle exhaust, research in bioaerosols, atmospheric studies, and toxicology testing. Lev Solomonovich Ruzer; Naomi H. Harley (2013).

*  Particle-size evidence of barrier estuary regime as a new proxy for ENSO climate variability - Clarke - 2017 - Earth Surface...
We investigate a new proxy for ENSO climate variability based on particle-size data from long-term, coastal sediment records preserved in a barrier estuary setting. Corresponding ~4-8 year periodicities identified from Wavelet analysis of particle-size data from Pescadero Marsh in Central Coast California and rainfall data from San Francisco reflect established ENSO periodicity, as further evidenced in the Multivariate ENSO Index (MEI), and thus confirms an important ENSO control on both precipitation and barrier regime variability. Despite the fact that barrier estuary mean particle size is influenced by coastal erosion, precipitation and streamflow, balanced against barrier morphology and volume, it is encouraging that considerable correspondence can also be observed in the time series of MEI, regional rainfall and site-based mean particle size over the period 1871-2008. ...

*  Materials | Free Full-Text | Effects of Particle Size on the Shear Behavior of Coarse Grained Soils Reinforced with Geogrid
In order to design civil structures that are supported by soils, the shear strength parameters of soils are required. Due to the large particle size of coarse-grained soils, large direct shear tests should be performed. In this study, large direct shear tests on three types of coarse grained soils (4.5 mm, 7.9 mm, and 15.9 mm) were performed to evaluate the effects of particle size on the shear behavior of coarse grained soils with/without geogrid reinforcements. Based on the direct shear test results, it was found that, in the case of no-reinforcement, the larger the maximum particle size became, the larger the friction angle was. Compared with the no-reinforcement case, the cases reinforced with either soft geogrid or stiff geogrid have smaller friction angles. The cohesion of the soil reinforced with stiff geogrid was larger than that of the soil ...

*  A course in Dental Composites page 9 (Composite Characteristics)-DoctorSpiller.com - DoctorSpiller.com
When it comes to wear resistance, the only things that really matter are the density of the filler particles, and the size of the particles. The more densely packed, the less the wear, and the smaller the particle size, the better.. Hybrids do exceptionally well on density but less well on particle size. The more recently developed ones resist wear quite well because they are highly filled. These are still some of the most wear-resistant composites on the market.. Agglomerated nanofills (microfills) do better on particle size but less well on density of particles. They generally exhibit poor working characteristics and shallow depth of cure, but they have the best wear characteristics compared to any of the other categories. In my experience, nanofills are somewhat more prone to fracture than other types of composites.. Nanohybrids, the ...

Several cross-sectional studies have reported differences in LDL particle size, density, and composition between patients with CHD and healthy controls. Prospective, nested case-control studies have since confirmed that the presence of small, dense LDL particles is associated with a more than 3-fold increase in CHD risk.. In the Québec Cardiovascular Study, men with an LDL particle size ,25.6 nm had a significant 2.2-fold increase in the 5-year rate of ischemic heart disease (IHD) compared with men having an LDL particle size ,25.6 nm.9 Multivariate and subgroup analyses indicated that small, dense LDL particles predicted the rate of IHD independently of LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL cholesterol, apo B, and the total cholesterol-HDL cholesterol ratio. The magnitude of the increase in IHD risk attributed to lipid risk factors was modulated to a significant extent by ...

*  Particle-size distribution - Wikipedia
The particle-size distribution (PSD) of a powder, or granular material, or particles dispersed in fluid, is a list of values or a mathematical function that defines the relative amount, typically by mass, of particles present according to size. Significant energy is usually required to disintegrate soil, etc. particles into the PSD that is then called a grain size distribution. The PSD of a material can be important in understanding its physical and chemical properties. It affects the strength and load-bearing properties of rocks and soils. It affects the reactivity of solids participating in chemical reactions, and needs to be tightly controlled in many industrial products such as the manufacture of printer toner, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical products. Particle size distribution can greatly affect the efficiency of any collection device. ...

*  Studies of particle drying using non-invasive Raman spectrometry and particle size analysis - Strathprints
The evaporation of methanol from needle-shaped particles of cellobiose octaacetate (COA) has been studied directly in a jacketed vacuum drier using in situ measurements by Raman spectrometry. A design of experiments (DoE) approach was used to investigate the effects of three parameters ( method of agitation, % solvent loss on drying and jacket temperature), with the intention of minimising the drying time and extent of particle attrition. Drying curves based on Raman signals for methanol and COA in the spectra of the wet particles indicated the end of drying and revealed three stages in the drying process that could be used to monitor the progress of solvent removal in real time. Off-line particle size measurements based on laser diffraction were made to obtain information on the extent of attrition, to compare with the trends revealed by the Raman drying curves. The study demonstrated that non-invasive Raman spectrometry ...

AU - Mogensen,Mogens Bjerg. PY - 2012. Y1 - 2012. N2 - Porous platinum electrodes impregnated with Gd x Ce1−x O2−δ (CGO) are investigated to characterise how nano-sized CGO grains affect the oxygen reaction. Impedance measurements were performed at temperatures between 450 and 750 °C and at oxygen partial pressures of 0.2 and 5 × 10−5 bar for electrodes with various CGO loadings and electrodes annealed at various temperatures. The morphology was characterised by scanning electron microscopy and the CGO grain size was determined from X-ray diffraction peak broadening. The results showed that the polarisation resistance decreased with increasing CGO loading and increasing annealing temperature. CGO facilitates transport of oxygen ions ...

*  Particle counter - Wikipedia
A particle counter is an instrument that detects and counts physical particles. The nature of particle counting is based upon either light scattering, light obscuration, or direct imaging. A high intensity light source is used to illuminate the particle as it passes through the detection chamber. The particle passes through the light source (typically a laser or halogen light) and if light scattering is used, then the redirected light is detected by a photo detector. If direct imaging is used, a halogen light illuminates particles from the back within a cell while a high definition, high magnification camera records passing particles. Recorded video is then analyzed by computer software to measure particle attributes. If light blocking (obscuration) is used the loss of light is detected. The amplitude of the light scattered or light blocked is measured and the ...

*  A simple model for estimating the particle size dependence of absolute efficiency of fluorescent screens
The absolute efficiency of a phosphor screen is the ratio of the light energy per unit area at the screen surface to the incident x-ray energy fluence. Particle size is a critical factor in determining the absolute efficiency, but in most models its influence is not accounted for. To allow derivation of the particle size dependence, a model is proposed that describes the optical properties of the screen by means of a single parameter, the light extinction factor, xi, and assumes that the intrinsic efficiency (light energy/energy imparted to the phosphor material) is independent of particle size. The value of xi depends on the type of screen (phosphor, reflective backing, coating and binder) and has to be determined from measurements on at least two screens with known particle size and thickness. The absolute efficiency can then be calculated for an extended range of ...
