Characterization of the Purity of Curcumin Extraction: Comparative study of UV Spectrophotometry and High Performance Liquid Chromatography from a Field Application Perspective

This study focuses on the comparison of UV Spectrophotometry and High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) for characterizing purity of curcumin with the view of selecting the best technique for this particular commercial application. Field application was a key criterion in the selection.

Integrating Phylodynamics and Epidemiology to Estimate Transmission Diversity in Viral Epidemics

Mathematical epidemiology describes the spread of infectious diseases and aims to aid in the design of effective public health interventions. Central to this endeavour is the basic reproductive number (R0) of an infectious disease, the mean number of secondary infections per primary infection in a completely susceptible population

Integrating Phylodynamics and Epidemiology to Estimate Transmission Diversity in Viral Epidemics

Mathematical epidemiology describes the spread of infectious diseases and aims to aid in the design of effective public health interventions [1]–[3]. Central to this endeavour is the basic reproductive number (R0) of an infectious disease, the mean number of secondary infections per primary infection in a completely susceptible population [4] (for notations see Table 1). Under simple epidemiological scenarios, in which all infected individuals behave identically, R0depends on the transmission probability per contact with a susceptible individual, the duration of infectiousness and the rate at which new contacts are made.

Creating Advanced Body Armor by Combining Web Geometry with Shear Thickening Fluids

Body armor is currently created using geometry based on Kevlar fabric. This research focuses on determining how to make the design stronger and more effective by using several combinations and strength thickening fluids.

Biomechanics of Velocity

The purpose of this experiment was to determine what formula would most accurately represent the velocity of an individual’s walking, speed walking, or jogging pace based on the length of their leg. Finding the correct formula could give amputees as easier transition to their new leg.

Building Low-Cost Prosthetics

Building low-cost prosthetics by SLAM scanning the residual limbs of amputees.

Design of a Fluid-Powered Solar Tracker for Solar Panels

The study’s objective was to design, build, and test a full-scale, self-powered solar tracking mechanism incorporating a damper system to reduce wind flutter.

Economical Oxygen Reduction Electrocatalysts

Global warming is a significant threat to modern society caused by the burning of fossil fuels in order to meet everyday energy requirements. Renewable clean energy solutions such as solar and wind power are not as high-producing as carbon-based sources, but hydrogen-based electric energy is a viable alternative. This project focuses on finding alternatives to platinum for proton exchange membrane fuel cells.

Improving Status Quo Rationale to Improve Middle Income Households

This study demonstrates correlation between economic trends and changes in markets. They also show that CAPE downside management is effective in combination with a delay and dynamic asset allocation.

Connectivity and Systemic Resilience of the Great Barrier Reef

Marine ecosystems are characterised by high levels of larval connectivity among populations linked by ocean or coastal currents [1]. Ensuring functioning and resilient ecosystems requires that processes of connectivity are maintained, particularly when the metapopulation has been widely depleted and individual patches must recolonise from neighbours [2].
